Cat brought stray kitten home from the backyard and raised him to be the happiest cat

A cat brought a stray kitten home from its back yard and raised it to be the happiest cat.

Last summer a stray kitten popped up in a family’s back yard outside their Dutch farmhouse. The kitten looked for food and went to her house.

Klarieke, the house owner, had three cats at the time. One of them named Stavros was rescued from the streets more than a year ago. After adopting the third cat, Klarieke thought that was all. “We told each other that three cats are enough,” said Klarieke Love Meow.

But Stavros, the ginger and the white cat never got the memo. When he noticed the little cat visitor in front of her house, he came up with his own plan.

When the family found out about the kitten, they were surprised to see how their cat played and swam with the little newcomer as if they had always been friends.

The kitten kept coming back to hang out with the cat, and the two were often seen together in a shed attached to the house. After checking the neighborhood and waiting for some time, no one came forward to request the kitten.

“Stavros was with him every time he showed up. He even let the kitten have his food. From that day on, I started to feed the kitten,” Klarieke told Love Meow.

It became clear that the kitten had no home. When the family saw that their cat had chosen him as their own, they decided to officially adopt him as their fourth kitten and named him Charlie.

It took Charlie a few days to get used to living in a house. Stavros became his mentor, showing him the ropes and teaching him how to be a real cat.

With a few pointers from his best friend, Charlie found out how to use the litter box and enjoyed playing with toys.

He started his guard to bring people down. Slowly but surely, he allowed them to hold him and cuddle with him.

The two best friends look out for each other and Stavros has taken on the role of big brother. He’s never tired of bathing and cuddling Charlie to make sure he’s always clean and loved.

The ginger and white cat teach the kitten to be courageous with people and that people are there to serve and supervise them.

Now Charlie often follows his mother around the house, demanding to know everything she’s doing.

“Charlie has turned into a lap cat. When he just moved in with us, he was shy, but now he will follow us until we sit down so he can sit on our lap,” said Klarieke.

“When I do laundry, he’s right behind me. He likes to watch me and follows me into the bathroom. There’s no privacy in his world.”

Charlie has grown into a playful, mischievous kitten. He keeps his feline friends busy and fills the house with endless entertainment.

Stavros loves him and has nothing against his many antics.

Charlie often hugs his best friend so they can share a bed or chair. He looks up at his big brother and follows his paw steps.

Charlie is now an adult and lives the best life with his large family. He has a larger than life personality and is always happy and cheerful.

Stavros continues to watch over his little brother and keep him out of trouble. Sometimes they hold paws when they take a nap.

Charlie has grown into a lovely kitten. He’s the happiest little guy in the house and lives life to the fullest.
