Generally, stray cats are some of the most skittish animals out there! Without a sneaky trap, it’s almost impossible to catch a cat that doesn’t want to be caught. They are quick, have sharp claws, and fiercely independent.
Who would have known that the best way to save a stray kitty was to bring a dog out?!
Despite the “cat caricature” that exists for strays, many of them still want the love and affection of a human (or any other creature). When there is a cat like that, we often see them showing up on porches looking for food and head scratches!
When that happens, you don’t adopt the cat; it adopts you!
For one man, adopting a cat was nowhere on his radar. One stray kitty that decided to follow him home one day had a different idea. When a cat decides to adopt you, you don’t have a say in the matter!
A few years ago, Jon Jienaber was out walking his dog.
While on a daily walk, Jon happened to notice a tiny stray kitten wandering around the street. He looked at the situation sadly as they weren’t close enough to be able to do anything for the kitten. The poor little guy was just a small blip on his radar of things to do.
Something strange happened soon, however.
Continuing on his walk, he turned around and saw another little kitten! Wait, this was the same kitten. Realization dawned on him. The little stray was secretly following him home! A kitty was stalking him!
Calling his wife, he asked her to be ready with food.
Frantically running around, Leslie, Jon’s wife, tried to find some cat food they could use to tempt the kitty closer. When they finally got to the house, they didn’t want to turn around and scare the little cat away and be unable to help him.
When they finally arrived, the cat showed none of the reservations they were expecting!
This smart cat wasn’t just looking for someone to follow for fun; it was choosing its new family! Leslie was able to hold the little cat and it “was so small that it could easily fit in her palm.”
The couple lives in Cleveland, Ohio, where stray cats are abundant.
While there are lots of strat cats out there, none of them followed them home like this one did! When Jon first arrived with the cat in tow, Leslie was able to grab a bit of video. The little cat seemed to have an affinity for their basset hound!
After the cute turn of events, what else was the family to do!
Jon and Leslie, of course, adopted the little kitten. After something as cute as that, there isn’t much else you can do but allow yourself to be “adopted” by the cat that has chosen you as their new family. They probably don’t even have to worry whether their dog will get along with the kitten, the cat followed it home!
