Up until the summer of 2020, Klarieke, the kind owner of 3 cats, thought that 3 cats would be just enough. One of them, Stavros, who had been rescued just about a year ago back then, became the streetwise leader of the trio.
This last summer, a little stray kitten started scrounging the backyard for food. When the family found out about it, Stavros and the little kitten had already become friends.
One day, a stray kitten appeared in Klarieke’s farmhouse looking for food.
Stavros, the leader of the household’s cat trio, quickly noticed him. He has shown sympathy to a kitten with a similar history like his.
Klarieke asked the neighborhood if someone was missing a kitten, but no one responded. That kitten kept coming back to the house and hung around with Stavros, who even gave his own food to him. It was clear that they didn’t want to part ways.
Seeing how Stavros had taken him in, she started feeding the kitten herself, and the little kitten was officially adopted and given a name. It’s Charlie. From that point onwards, Klarieke’s household had a nice, even number of 4 cats.
It took a few days for Charlie to adjust to life in a loving home.
Stavros showed him around his new house and gave a purrfect example of behaving like a house cat. Charlie began to relax, and eventually let the owners snuggle him.
The house now has an even number of cats: Charlie, Jack, Stavros and Louis.
With time, Charlie has become a comfortable lap cat!
