A cat lover who goes by ‘Crazy Cat Man’ was walking near his local playground when he heard a soft meow.
The man looked for the source of the meow, and he found a little kitten hiding under a piece of playground equipment. Crazy Cat Man carefully approached the kitten, trying not to startle her. But the skittish abandoned kitten ran away before he could reach her.
The playground was near a busy highway, and so Crazy Cat Man was worried that the kitten might get hit by a car. He knew he had to save her as quickly as possible.
Crazy Cat Man was determined to save this kitten. And so, he ran back to his house and grabbed some food and water. The kitten ate the food, but she ran away before Crazy Cat Man could pick her up.
After a day and a half of trying to entice April with food here is the first of her rescue videos…#MyRescueStory #cats #catvideo #TBT

The next day, Crazy Cat Man headed back to the playground with more food.
The kitten still wouldn’t leave her protected area, but she gratefully ate the food. When Crazy Cat Man approached her, she ran away again.
Crazy Cat Man came back the next day with more food. This time, the kitten didn’t run away when Crazy Cat Man walked up to her. She even let him hold her while she ate the food! She didn’t offer any resistance—it was clear she now trusted the man who was feeding her.
Crazy Cat Man brought the kitten home, and he named her April. April loved her new dad—she was always happy to curl up in his arms and take a nap.
April also immediately bonded with Crazy Cat Man’s other cat, Tom. Tom treated April like she was his own kitten!
Crazy Cat Man had been planning on fostering April and finding a new forever home for her. But in the end, he decided to adopt her himself!
“At first I thought I would rehome her,” Crazy Cat Man explained, “but the connection she had with Tom, and the fact that she was becoming so comfortable and happy, I decided that the place for her to be was with me.”
Big Tom & April…Just listen to that purr♥

April and Tom are still bonded, and April still loves her dad more than anything. It’s clear that April found the perfect forever home!
We may never know who abandoned April, but one thing is for sure: she has now found a great place to call home. If you’d like to learn more about April, check out the video below. If you want to see more cute photos of April and Tom, check out Crazy Cat Man’s Facebook page.
