Cat Adopts A Stray Kitten From The Garden And Brings Him Inside

In the Netherlands, Klarieke resides with her family on a lovely farm. While traveling in Greece, they acquired three lovely cats and gave them the names Jack, Louis, and Stavros. They believed that having just these three animals at home would be sufficient, but they were mistaken.

A timid, scrawny cat showed up in her backyard a little over a month ago. During one of her visits to the yard, the lady, who wasn’t entirely sure whether she had a home, discovered Stavros playing with the cat as if they were old friends.

The cat watched him play and seemed to be very aware of the little one.

Klarieke told:

“Stavros lived on the streets and was very sick. He was rescued by a Dutch girl who stays in Zakynthos every summer. He was looking for a home (for the cat) in Holland, so we decided to adopt him. My husband and I said to each other, ‘this is the last cat, three is enough’.”

Stavros used to keep a careful eye on the kitten as it entered the family garden, lurked among the tomato plants, and eventually made it to the shed.

The kitten felt comfortable with Stavros, and the two cats got along well. They enjoyed playing and napping together.

Klarieke was pleasantly delighted to find the small cat with them one day as they were having dinner. Stavros didn’t worry at all that she was eating off of his dish; she patiently let the cat eat until he was full, and she appeared content to know that her tiny companion wouldn’t go hungry tonight.

After that, Klarieke made the decision to make an additional plate of food, and the young child gradually overcome his shyness and came over to the family to eat and receive some attention.

The lady narrates:

“In the shed, I gave the kitten his own feeding bowl, but when he spotted me, he bolted. He must have been so ravenous that he took a chance entering to eat.

During this time no one came to claim the little kitten and every day he seemed more comfortable at Klarieke’s house. They decided to call him ‘Charlie’ and although he was very shy with his new human family, he followed Stavros trying to imitate everything he did.

Klarieke added:

“Stavros acted like a father to him, and the kitten started spending more time with him in the shed during the day.”

After a few weeks, Charlie decided to enter the house with the support of Stavros who encouraged him to follow him into the home, and did not leave his side while he toured the place.

Klarieke assured:

“We can officially say that Charlie has moved in with us and we have a fourth cat. He comes to the kitchen when it is dinner time and allows us to pet him and even hug him ».

Charlie had no idea how to use the litter box at first, so everything was unfamiliar to him. However, with time, he grew accustomed to life in the house. Klarieke thinks Stavros was the one who led him and assisted him throughout.

The youngster was also brought to the veterinarian, where staff members checked on his wellbeing.

Charlie still enjoys spending time in the shed with his best friend, and is slowly becoming more accepting of his humans. He is happy to have this great family and the support that Stavros always offers him.

Charlie now understands that Stavros would always look after him and that he won’t go hungry or be alone. Now that they are one huge family, everyone could not be happier.
