One day, a small kitten with a big personality approached another feline and quickly made the decision that they would never be separated. This little kitty was talkative and had plenty to express.
When a litter of kittens was brought to a shelter in North Carolina, one of them stood out as being particularly small and behind in development. This calico kitten was the only one still in need of round-the-clock bottle feedings, making her a bit more difficult to care for. Fortunately, another rescue group had taken in her siblings and were able to connect her with Murphy’s Law Animal Rescue. Founder Sarah Kelly immediately picked up the kitten, who was given the name Cinco (or Cici for short) because she arrived on Cinco de Mayo. Despite her small size, Cinco was eager for love and attention and quickly made it known that she wanted to be fed and cared for.
Cici experienced a new level of comfort as she drifted off to sleep with a satisfied stomach and a cozy bed. Whenever Sarah brought her a bottle, Cici would express her gratitude by crying loudly and stretching up on her tiptoes for some affectionate head scratches from her foster mother. Her meows gradually became soft squeaks of contentment as she relished the feeling of being full. She would curl up on her plush blanket and knead it with pure joy.
In the following days, Cici experienced remarkable growth and her distinct personality finally blossomed. She remained talkative and shared every detail of her day with her foster parent who attended to her every need. Cici was remarkably self-assured and self-reliant, resembling a poised princess who went about her business at a gentle and careful pace.
After being given a clean bill of health, Cici was introduced to other kittens and she settled into a room with a few foster friends. One of them was a charming tuxedo cat named Gaia, who strutted around confidently and carefree. Like Cici, Gaia had also arrived at the rescue as a lone kitten and was delighted to have new playmates to frolic with.
The calico cat walked over to her and curled up next to her, as if they were siblings. Even though there were other cats to play with, Cici chose to stick with Gaia and never wander too far away. Sarah shared that the two cats quickly formed a strong connection and could often be found snuggling and playing together.
While other kittens were caught up in their playful frenzy, causing chaos and commotion, Cici’s behavior was quite different. She would immediately run towards her foster mother as soon as she entered the room. Cici had a unique personality; she loved to sit down and observe her feline siblings from a distance, perched on her favorite lap or shoulder. Occasionally, she would join in the fun, but her style was always more refined and graceful compared to the rough-and-tumble antics of her peers. Indeed, Cici was a tiny diva with her distinctive character.
As soon as Cici was ready for adoption, she made it apparent that she and her closest buddy were inseparable. Recently, their wish came true when a lovely couple came to meet them. “They got adopted together! We’re absolutely thrilled that they found the ideal family and a permanent place to call home. Both of these young ladies are not only affable but also have a promising future ahead of them.”
Cookie and her furry friend Cici are all set to keep exploring and having fun in their new home, spreading happiness with their constant purring.
