Meet Ares and Aphrodite, two adorable furry kittens who were found on the streets as stray cats. A couple of days before New Year’s Eve, the two cats were brought to a local shelter in the hopes that someone would adopt them and give the two a loving forever home.

What the crew of the shelter didn’t realize, was that Ares and Aphrodite have grown quite fond of each other and were inseparable. Unfortunately, their paths would go different ways. Someone had taken a liking to Aphrodite and planned to adopt her soon. As for Ares, Alana Hadley wanted to adopt the little ginger cat after she instantly fell in love with him.

“He looks exactly like my cat that passed away,” Alana said to Love Meow about Ares.

Alana wanted to adopt Ares’ best friend as well, but she couldn’t because someone else had a pending adoption application for Aphrodite.

The woman took Ares home with her, but she noticed that the ginger cat was significantly less happy than in the shelter. In fact, she described him as very needy and mentioned that he wouldn’t stop meowing ever since he left the shelter.

“He was almost non-stop meowing until he went to sleep and then meowed again when he was awake (most likely calling out for his sister),” the woman posted. “We thought he missed her and was grieving being taken away from her.”

Alana and her family decided to try and lift the cat’s spirits by providing him with a bunch of stuffed animals, but Ares kept on meowing.

Luckily, Alana returned to the shelter and heard that Aphrodite’s planned adoption didn’t go through.

She took Ares with her to the shelter and the two furry friends reunited.

As you might expect, they were elated to see each other again!

“They wouldn’t stop playing,” Alana recalls. “They are very attention-seeking cats and loving.”

Alana wanted to make both cats happy, so she decided to adopt Aphrodite as well.

Now, these two feline siblings have a wonderful home and can always enjoy each other’s loving company.

“They both love to cuddle and purr like crazy when we are holding them. They sleep most of the day and they cuddle each other when they nap,” Alana said.

These two best friends will never have to miss each other again and Alana could not be any happier with her new pets. A heartwarming adoption story!
