Kitten sneaks out of her room to befriend the new kitten at the nursing home

A kitten sneaked out of her room and moved in with the new foster kitten. It was love at first sight.

At the beginning of this year, a tiny cream calico was saved through a TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) project. She was the only survivor of her litter and her feral mother cat could not safely take care of her.

The kitten was then taken to Tiny but Mighty Kitten Rescue in Ontario, Canada, for a better life. Immediately they noticed how cheeky and loud she was. The kitten, named Lucy, embodied the spirit of a diva and didn’t want to take no for an answer.

Baby Lucy was about three weeks old when she arrived. It took her three tries to understand the concept of a bottle. After figuring out how to suck, she went into town and ate like a champ.

The cute calico was a cuddle bug from the start and needed attention.

“I gave her a stuffed bunny-cat toy that was about her size and she loved it,” said Mellissa, founder of Tiny but Mighty Kitten Rescue.

“She got a lot of attention, cuddling time and walking exercises after every bottle.”

If Princess Lucy were tired, she would cry to be taken back to her cozy incubator for a nap. The little girl with the big attitude had no problem getting what she wanted.

When Lucy was four weeks old and hit the 1-pound mark, she began demanding more time and attention from her foster mother.

It was around this time that she heard squeaks from the next room. Mellissa had just brought home a new caregiver – a future friend for Miss Lucy.

The original plan was to have the new kitten treated and monitored for two weeks before the two were introduced, but little calico couldn’t wait.

The new kitten named Luke was found alone under a porch. He was Lucy’s age and a little purring machine. “He was super energetic and loved to attack his Snuggle Kitty. He started making air muffins when I was holding him.”

During bottle time, Lucy heard Luke’s meow every day and became more and more eager to find him. A few days later, when Mellissa was tidying up her room, the clever little Calico set out on a little escapade.

“I went out of Lucy’s room to toss something and she ran over to Luke. She was so excited to see another kitten her size. They started playing right away,” Mellissa said.

The two little singletons were so excited to finally have a boyfriend and they started cuddling. Mellissa pushed Luke’s playpen into the main kitten room so that the two friends could have watched the playing time together between bottle feedings.

“When these two singleton orphans first met, they became best friends.”

Lucy, the boss, decided to move into Luke’s apartment, also known as his playpen, for a day. She insisted on being with her brother from another mother wherever he went.

When they weren’t darting around the room or wrestling with each other, they snuggled and napped as a duo.

The two best friends shared every adventure together in foster families for the next few weeks. They were always in sight of each other.

They played to their heart’s content, then fell asleep and wrapped their arms around each other.

The connected couple was ready for the next adventure – finding their own place.

A family fell in love with Luke and Lucy and welcomed them to their loving home, where they befriended a ginger cat and a cute dog.

Luke and Lucy quickly settled into their new accommodation and claimed their humans’ bed.

The two best friends learned to enjoy their new cat entertainment system (bird television) with their feline brother, Beans. London the dog was hit with the kittens and became their nap buddy.

Luke and Lucy have grown by leaps and bounds, but some things never change.

The two little singletons found each other in their nursing home and have been a family ever since.
