In a TikTok video post by Julia Morse in October 2020, she chronicles her efforts to assist a bunch of rescued kittens adjust and heal after a harrowing ordeal. Out of fifteen kittens saved, she formed an inseparable bond with one special feline.
Tender loving care
One ginger cat of the bunch remained in terrible shape.He showed signs of dehydration, infection, and malnourishment. As a result the kitten moved into isolation.
Volunteer Julia spoon-fed the little feline and provided much-needed tender loving care. Days turned into weeks, and Julia developed a strong bond with the ginger cat named Rocky.
Rocky’s skin, coat, and condition improved. He grew strong enough to move into the main shelter with the other cats.
Rocky not only grew more robust physically, but he also grew quite attached to his guardian angel Julia. Rocky and Julia’s bond intensified as Rocky would find a way to climb onto Julia’s shoulder and stay put.
Julia learned to adapt to Rocky’s “stuck-like-glue” routine every time she volunteered at the shelter. They became inseparable.
One big happy family
By the start of 2021, Julia could no longer deny the inevitable. She adopted Rocky and welcomed him as part of her family with her husband Mark and fellow rescue cat Mat.
Husband Mark and tabby cat Mat received Rocky warmly right away. Tabby cat Mat was thrilled to have a baby brother and a sibling with whom he could play and cuddle.
When volunteer worker Julia helped recover and heal one extremely sick kitten, she never realized her efforts would turn into something extraordinary.
With an instant connection and much tender loving care, one woman’s dedication and effort helped transform a sickly kitten into a healthy feline ready to make his mark as part of her family unit.
As much as you’d like to believe humans choose pets. This story shows that sometimes the opposite is true.
