A stray kitten was found wandering the streets alone, in need of a foster home. Erica, a veterinary technician, learned about him through Army Animal Rescue Team Charlie and immediately offered to help.
The kitten was very dirty, underweight and had some stomach problems. Despite everything, he was happy to have a roof over his head, a waiter for him, and a comfy bed to sleep in. “He talks a lot and is happy to be safe inside,” says Erica
Erica named the kitten Tank, a kitten with a loud voice and strong personality in a small body. After two weeks of well-fed, well-groomed, and well-groomed Tank, his health returned and his energy levels skyrocketed. He constantly wants a friend to wrestle with and will pounce on anything that moves, including Erica’s legs.
Once he’s healthy, Erica brings in her most trusted assistants, her resident cats Sloane and Forest. Sloane immediately covered the boisterous young man and put him in his place. Tank wants to fight Sloane but quickly gets a lesson in boundaries.
Sloane skillfully wrapped her arms around the kitten and pressed it down to brush it. “Tanks attack, and end up taking a shower from Sloane.” Tank is playful and curious, and tries to imitate big cats. “He loves hanging out with them, and they teach him manners.”
Tank is a busy body, always on the move, plotting his next antics. When he discovers a cardboard box, he jumps right in and can be entertained for hours.
It was a rare moment of quiet, when he came out of all the rough play. The skinny little stray cat has turned into a happy, healthy, and tantalizing kitten. “He is a very intelligent kitten and will bring a lot of joy to any home.”
Despite having two feline mentors to show him the ropes, Tank still likes to “scream” at his adoptive mother to get attention. There are some things that never change. About a month after his arrival, Tank adopted him. Day after day, he patiently waited for the perfect family to come to him. A few more weeks passed, and a wonderful family reached out to him.
Carley stumbled across Tank on social media and fell in love with this little generator. She has a big tabby named Jasper looking for a friend and she thinks Tank would be the perfect fit. On the day of the meet, Tank passed all the stops and won everyone. He officially graduated from foster care and entered his loving forever home.
Tank feels at home with his new family and can’t wait to hang out with Jasper. They were going to introduce themselves slowly, but Tank and Jasper had other plans. The two immediately fought as if they had always been a family. Now, Tank has a best friend to grapple with and nap with day and night. They watch bird television together and do many things as a duo.
Tank and Jasper are making so many fond memories with their loved ones. Carley said: “He was the best addition to my little family’’.
By providing a loving home and the companionship the kitten seeks, these individuals are giving it the opportunity to grow, thrive, and form lasting connections. They are creating a safe and nurturing space where the kitten can express itself and feel a sense of belonging.
Ultimately, this story reminds us of the incredible bond that can be forged between humans and animals. It highlights the shared experiences, love, and joy that can be found in these unique relationships, bringing fulfillment and happiness to both parties involved.
