CANADA – Two five-week-old kittens were found together with no sign of their mother in Montreal earlier in 2016. According to the website Love Meow, they were hungry, frightened and completely covered in fleas.
Both of them also had eye infections and were absolutely distressed from being alone. It is yet unknown how long they were fending for themselves, without a mom, at such a young age.
The pair was immediately taken over to Chatons Orphelins Montreal (Orphaned Kittens Montreal), where they were given medical attention, food, lots of love and attention, and even names. They are known as Bane and Ines.
Here’s the cute part: The pair absolutely refused to stop cuddling, and even as they started to feel more and more at ease around humans, they still carried on spending all their time together.
Nobody seems to know where their mother went as they were fending for themselves in the cold and in the street. However, once they were taken care of by the medical team, the pair was safe from harm and no longer needed to fight for their lives.
The organization said on their Facebook page stated in a post:
“Bane and Ines are two kittens who are very attached to each other and have formed a strong bond. Ines is constantly looking to check that Bane is not too far, and Bane, in turn, is always hugging his little sister”.
The two kittens, who overcame so many obstacles, have since been adopted by their forever family and were renamed, Marius and Fanny.
The duo was and is quite inseparable, and together, they have proven that all obstacles can be overcome with a best friend to lean on.
Thanks to their rescuers, they will be able to spend the rest of their lives playing and hugging each other. You learn about adoption from Chatons Orphelins Montreal by clicking here.
