Cats Who Forced Their Way Into A Forever Home

    “I went to another town for work. When I was walking along a street, some kitten appeared near my feet. I pet him and went to my car. Once I opened the door, the fluffy thing ran inside with me. --

    Cat

    He instantly went on the passenger seat and fell asleep. I called my wife and asked if she wanted a kitten. She asked, 'Is that a girl or a boy?' I checked and said it was a tomcat but not handsome at all. She replied, 'Okay, bring him.' I had a whole working day ahead and he was with me in the car all this time, sleeping either on the seat or on my lap. Now he's a beautiful black cat whose eyes are a bit crossed but it doesn't bother him."

    “It was the last day of my vacation and I decided to go to work and see how things were going there. When I got to the parking lot, I saw a screaming kitten under my car. I grabbed the kitty and took him home. --

    Cat

    I instantly made posts in all the local social groups to find him a home. Then I thought about it for 10 minutes and removed all the posts. Now he lives with us and makes us happy every single day."

    “My house, not my cat! She silently followed me through the front door, then jumped on the sofa. Took me by complete surprise. No collar, so I decided to call her Miss Pring, as she made the loudest “prrringg” noise to get my attention!”

    “One fine evening, my husband went to the shop. On his way back, he called me and said, “Expect some guests.” When he came in, there was a small trembling creature in his arms, burying his face. Turns out, this kitten followed my husband --

    on one of the blocks and was crying. So they walked like this along a couple of blocks and eventually, my husband called me and said to expect a guest. The cat's habit to keep his face buried remained until now."

    “My husband built a summer house and on the very first day, a slim cat appeared in it. She didn’t let us touch her a lot but at the same time, was never late for lunch. --

    Cat

    In September, she suddenly decided that she was going to live in our home. We'd barely open the door and she'd instantly sneak inside and rush to her food bowl. Afterward, she would disappear in the rooms so that we had to look for her for several hours. Eventually, we surrendered and kept her with us."

    “Our house, not our cat, but we just had to keep him. We saw this beautiful big-faced tabby hanging out in the backyard. We decided to let him in. Biggy is very affectionate and loyal, and he gets along great with our 3 poodles.”

    “There was a kitten sitting under my window. Once he saw me, he came into my arms. I got scared that he was sick or something, put him back on the ground, and ran home. In a minute, I heard this cat crying at my front door. Meet Blacky!”

    “My house, not my cat(yet). She will come around for food and try to sneak inside the house to play with my 2 cats, but she is still very fearful of my presence and doesn’t let anybody near her. Someday we will be friends! I named her Margaret/Maggie.”

    “I was on a half-empty suburban bus. Suddenly, I noticed a red spot running around the bus. It was a kitten, all dirty in some kind of machine oil. Suddenly, he jumped onto the seat next to me. --

    Cat

    We called her Dusya. She still has leftovers of the machine oil, fuel oil, or whatever she got smeared in. And yes, it's my cat. She perceives only me as her owner."

    “I was on my way home when a cat jumped out of a garbage bin and started to follow me. She entered my home, ate some food, and sat on my arms. Then I went outside and let her go. Once I came back home, I instantly turned around and --

    Cat

    ran outside but the cat wasn't there. I was running around our block for 15 minutes calling for the cat. Unable to find her, I left home. Then she suddenly jumped from behind a school and followed me again. After 2 weeks of training her to live in an apartment, it turned out that a cat from a garbage bin is ideal."

    “I got a text from my husband saying, ’No, not happening, absolutely not, don’t even think about it.’ I was at work and very confused. Turns out, he was running late and as he opened the door to leave, a kitten ran inside. --

    Cat

    I came home to our two adult male cats who brought a little kitten to me. I posted him on a bunch of sites and knocked on every door for 2 blocks in each direction. Husband named him and refused to let him go to a rescue. As you can see, he's still with us."

    Cat

    he has made himself quite comfy inside the apartment. I couldn't let him stay outside, look at that face"

    "I saw a homeless cat on my block sitting near the entrance to the basement. I said to him, ’Shall we go home?’ and started to walk up the stairs. The cat followed me. I opened the door and said --
