A kitten who took his cow toy everywhere is so lucky to have found the company of other cats.
A small kitten was spotted alone at a construction site in North Carolina. Workers found him in some rafters when they heard his screams.
“The mother was seen taking his sibling away, but after being left alone all night hoping that his mother would come back for him, the workers found him that morning and contacted us,” said Sarah Kelly, Sparkle Cat Rescue volunteers. divided.
The kitten was cold and hungry when the rescuers reached him.
Sarah took him in for care and put him in an incubator to help him regulate his body temperature. To make sure he didn’t feel alone, Sarah gave the kitten two cuddly toys, a cow and a teddy bear, to keep him company.
The cute kitten waddled up to the cow and wrapped her arms around it. Finally he relaxed and fell asleep next to the cow.
“We decided to call him Bo, short for Bovine. He loves his cute little cow, so she suits him perfectly,” wrote Sarah.
Without a mother, the little newborn needed a constant source of heat until he could regulate his body temperature. Bo felt safe and comfortable with his cow around.
Sarah placed a few more cuddly toys to make the place even more cozy, but Bo was always partial to the cow and liked to cuddle with it.
“Bo and his cow were absolutely adorable and spent their days meowing and mooing in the incubator,” said Sarah.
Over the next few days, Bo made further progress. His legs grew stronger and he became more curious about the world outside the incubator.
It was then that Sarah began introducing him to a playpen, but not without the supervision of Bo’s trusted cow friend.
He explored every corner of his new dig and even met a few other foster kittens. The more he discovered, the more excited he was about what lay ahead. Bo really wanted a friend to play with.
The kitten figured out how to knead and quickly became a skilled “baker”.
He still preferred cuddling his cow to napping, but was thrilled every time he got to play with a different cat his age.
Bo was so pleased to have a spacious kitty suite to walk around in. After an intense gaming session, he curled up next to his cuddly friends and fell asleep immediately.
Around this time, on a very cold day, Sarah received a litter of tabbies found on a resident’s property. They moved into the incubator Bo was once in.
Bo, who now had his own kitty suite, was very intrigued by all the new meows and noises.
When the new cats were ready to move into a playpen, Bo immediately took them and began to play as if they were already friends.
“Bo got really close to these guys. His best friend is Mac – these two love attacking each other and usually fall asleep fighting for the same toy,” said Sarah.
Bo now has foster siblings whom he can play with every day, let off steam and take a nap. He’s the happiest he’s ever been and his cow buddy is always around watching.
The little “cow” kitten is determined never to be alone again. He’s turned into a very noisy, brave little guy and he’s not afraid to tell his foster family what he wants.
“We are so grateful to be able to give this boy a second chance, a warm incubator and a happy ending.”
