One day, Strider the cat brought home a new friend – a tiny stray kitten, who followed him everywhere he went.
The family named him Gimli!
Strider held the little kitten by the scruff of the neck and simply walked on into the house. He himself decided that the kitten was there to stay.
The tiny stray tabby was extremely dirty and had plenty of fleas.
“As soon as I got home I threw t-shirt on and gave him a flea bath with regular blue dawn dish soap and warm water. He wasn’t happy but it washed quite a bit of filth off!” reddit user SkyGuy182 noted.
Apparently, there are a lot of stray cats in their neighborhood.
Just like Gimli, Strider himself is also a rescue himself – who apparently has compassion and empathy!
“When we adopted Strider because he just trotted right up to us while we were working outside!
“He just meowed and meowed and rubbed on us and purred and purred…needless to say he became an official member of the family shortly thereafter.”
“But this time Strider chose who the next member was.”
This is Strider taking the little kitten under his wing.
They even share food together.
