Family sick kitten healthy again, he turns out to be the cat they never knew were missing

One family nursed a kitten back to health and it turned out to be the cat they never knew they needed.

Jennifer, a volunteer with IndyHumane (an Indianapolis, Indiana animal rescue service), took in a family of cats in need of help. “I didn’t plan to take on any other line of carers for a couple of weeks, but fate had other plans,” shared Jennifer Love Meow.

The cat family had a difficult time battling disease. Unfortunately, three of the kittens lost their fight. In the intensive care unit, Momma Honey and her remaining three kittens Benny, Bea and Bear pulled through and began to thrive.

“My heart healed as they healed, and they grew into strong, happy, and healthy kittens and began to develop their own unique personalities.”

Bear was a cuddly beetle, a people’s cat, right from the start. As soon as he finished eating, he ran back to his foster mother and decided to crash into her lap.

“When I tried to get him to bed so I could go to sleep, he looked at me with his big blue eyes and let out a solid 10-second meow to let me know he disapproved.”

During her stay with the foster family, Jennifer noticed that Benny and Bea spent a lot of time together while Bear played alone or was with his foster mother, devouring her lap.

“He’s a total cuddle bug, always purring and making cookies on the soft polar bear blanket that I bought for him.”

Jennifer wasn’t the only one in the family who was beaten by Bear. Her house cat, Bodie the Tabby, decided to take the little guy under his wing.

“I sometimes took the kittens out of the nursing room to see Bodie. Benny and Bea didn’t want anything to do with him, but Bear was different. He loved Bodie and made Bodie love him,” Jennifer told Love Meow.

Bodie needed a young, energetic friend who wouldn’t run away from his sometimes intense attention. Bear not only accepted it, but returned it.

“I always say Bodie picked Bear. They seemed to have an instant connection, and the more time I let them spend together, the more I knew he was one of us.”

Bear was the happiest little kitten when he was with Jennifer and her family. He insisted on being in her presence and would scream for her attention. When it came time to find the kittens’ eternal families, it was clear that Bear was already home.

“Bodie and Bear are like typical brothers. They love each other, play with each other and sometimes choose each other,” shared Jennifer Love Meow.

“Every night when I go to bed, Bear does too. Bodie shares his bedtime snack with him and then he sleeps right next to me all night.”

Jennifer had another beloved cat named Lacey who was 16 years old when she met Bear.

The little boy became a peacemaker for the two older house cats. “Lacey didn’t like Bodie. To my surprise, Bear seemed to understand Lacey immediately.”

“Having Bear around gave Bodie another cat to turn his attention to and he stopped bothering with Lacey. Bear knew Bodie was there to play with him, and that Lacey needed a different kind of attention, “added Jennifer.

It wasn’t long before Bear grew up on Lacey and started snuggling up with her. Bear dropped on top of her and purred a storm.

“He somehow won her over, and it wasn’t long before she grabbed his attention and allowed him to snuggle up with her. I never thought anything like this would ever happen.”

For the next several months, Bear became Lacey’s cutest cuddle buddy and the friend she could rely on. Lacey found much comfort in Bear when he reminded her of her brother Nolan, who was 13 years old.

“Lacey died in December at the age of 17. I will forever be grateful to Bear for showing her such gentle, loving companionship and affection during the last year of her life,” Jennifer told Love Meow.

“He was the perfect addition to our family in many ways.”

Bear is now an adult and continues to spread his love to other cats.

He found his calling to help needy kittens. Whenever Jennifer brings new carers home, he patiently waits to meet them and is eager to give them a dose of his love.

Many foster kittens have found confidence and courage through him. Even the most shy kitten cannot resist his affection.

Jennifer brought Bear home that day just to care for her, but the little guy changed her life forever.
