A family on a farm north of Montreal, Canada, stumbled upon a cardboard box containing an orange tabby cat and two smaller kittens. Regrettably, despite attempts to rescue them, one of the smaller kittens did not survive.
In a bid to secure assistance for the two remaining felines and offer them a caring home, the family reached out to the local Chatons Orphelins Montreal rescue facility.
“The family traveled a significant distance in the middle of the night to bring the kittens to us, ensuring they have a chance at survival.”
Staff at the rescue facility further explained:
“We discovered that the two kittens were not from the same litter. The gray kitten still had its umbilical cord attached to the orange kitten, estimated to be four weeks old.”
Ron (orange) and Ginny (purple) were the names of the cats (grey). During sleep time, Ron would embrace the small grey cat, and Ginny would close her eyes, clinging to Ron for warmth and protection.
As per the rescue center:
“Throughout the day, their foster mother diligently bottle-fed them every two hours. They became more lively and started gaining weight.”
Montreal’s Chatons Orphelins provided additional insight:
“Ron, though a small kitten, displayed remarkable kindness towards the other cat, attempting to care for him. Even though they were separated for three weeks, Ron remained by Ginny’s side, offering her hugs and kisses.”
Around the same time, the rescue center welcomed Scottie, a little kitten in search of a feline companion. Scottie, the sole survivor who had stayed with his brothers behind a wall, had overcome various health challenges under the nurturing care of his foster mother and was now ready for a second chance at life.
They decided to introduce her to Ron, who was of the same age, once everything was prepared for her to meet other kittens. Ron approached his new companion, taking on the role of providing care and protection.
Ron, a lively cat, engaged Scottie in playful wrestling and encouraged him to play, offering big embraces as if he knew exactly what the tuxedo feline needed.
Ron was becoming restless and exuberant, thrilled to have found a new companion to share his boundless energy and antics.
Information from the rescue center adds:
“If you search for Scottie, you’ll undoubtedly find Ron as well. They are inseparable and do everything together, bringing immense joy to Scottie to have a playmate.”
