Michael Shinkle loves nothing more than going camping with his child. Together, they have discovered a hidden gem of a campsite that is far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. However, during their last trip, they were both surprised to discover that they weren’t alone in their little corner of paradise. As soon as they arrived, Shinkle and his son noticed a cat wandering around the woods all by itself. The poor animal looked malnourished and lost, and Shinkle couldn’t help but feel sorry for it. His child immediately took a liking to the cute feline and spent some time playing with it while Shinkle set up their camping gear. By the end of the trip, Shinkle was convinced that the cat would be coming home with them.
Although the father and son had packed food just enough for themselves on their camping trip, they willingly shared it with the cat. The furry creature was all over their tent, already fond of her new companions. During dinner time, they fed her all the leftovers that were remaining.
After a while, Shinkle headed off to his tent for some shut-eye. However, he wasn’t able to sleep for long as he woke up to a strange noise. To investigate, he used his phone light and saw eight glaring eyes staring back at him. As it turned out, the cat that they had met earlier was actually a mother to three tiny kittens.
After a fun camping trip, Shinkle and his son brought home four new furry friends, including a stray cat that they decided to adopt. Shinkle expressed his joy by creating a fundraising page for the cat family, mentioning how content the cat seemed to be and noting its friendly behavior. He also believed that the cat must have had some domestication before, given its eagerness to be petted.
Shinkle and his loved ones made the decision to give all four cats a forever home, and they couldn’t be happier about it. If it weren’t for their choice to go camping that weekend, the mother cat and her babies may not have survived. Now, these felines are relishing in the love and attention they deserve, and the family is cherishing every moment of their new life together.
