One evening, we came upon a little gray furball in the grass by a road. The area was sadly known for people dropping off their unwanted cats, given that a person living nearby would, on occasion, leave food out for them.
The kitten was malnourished and ridden with fleas, though very curious and playful. We decided to give him a new chance in life, bringing him home, feeding him proper food, and taking him to the vet.
His fur fell out in a few spots considering how bad the flea infestation got, and even the vet was surprised such a young kitten survived it. He got a kitten-friendly flea treatment and got introduced to the rest of our pets – two cats, and a Samoyed dog.
The cats weren’t very enthusiastic, though they didn’t mind him all that much either. The dog, on the other hand, fell in love with the little guy as soon as she saw him. She kept whining as she looked at him, begging to be let closer to him. She loves our other cats too and considering how gentle and kind she is, we finally let them meet properly. And so, a friendship was born.
