Husband and wife adopted four kittens from a shelter who were left without a mother. They only wanted to feed the kids, and when they grow up a little, find permanent owners for them.
But the kittens had their own plans for this.
A few months ago, residents of Elkhart, Indiana, reached out to a local community because of problems with a colony of stray cats that lived near their home.
During the capture of cats, four eight-week-old kittens were found, whose mother could not be identified among the cats caught.
The kittens seem to have been sure from the very beginning that now this will be their permanent home and not just overexposure. Despite the fact that Sarah and Rick had no plans to keep even one kitten.
The kittens held together and were so gentle and affectionate that the Hughes’ resistance soon began to wane.
After some time, the fateful moment came to make a decision. Sarah then had a very busy work week and one day she came home completely exhausted.
And when Sarah turned to Finn, she heard how affectionately and gently he purred and Violet was also very sweet, although she was the most active among the litter and loved to tear up wallpaper and bite people’s legs.
And then Sarah realized that she wanted to keep all four of them.
Sarah continued to lie on the bed and four kittens lay next to her, warming and supporting her, and she stroked them and smiled, realizing that now they had already found a real home for themselves.
All four grown kittens recently celebrated their first Thanksgiving with the Hughes.
