It was a hot summer day when employees of a business in Jonesboro, Arkansas grew concerned as they heard a strange noise coming from a car.
The noise continued for two whole days until they finally realized where it was coming from…
Those weren’t just any noises – they were tiny meows!
Keep reading to discover how a strange turn of events landed this kitten in the arms of a loving family!
A Shocking Discovery
Two employees at a local business had been hearing strange noises coming from their company vehicles for two days.
The sound was muffled, so they were unable to determine exactly what was making the noise.
One of the employees started to consider the possibility that the sound was a tiny “meow”.
They narrowed the sound down to one of the vans.
They popped open the hood and there it was…
Sitting in front of them was a frightened little kitten curled up by the engine.
Had someone actually turned on the vehicle, the kitten would have died immediately.
Luckily, he was found just in time!
But now the employees had another dilemma: what were they going to do with this kitten?
A Chance Encounter
The employees stepped into the storefront holding the kitten.
What happened next was fate.
At that exact moment, a woman who worked nearby was walking a package that had mistakenly been delivered to another shop.
“As I’m walking down to deliver this package, I happen to glance into the window of one of the other businesses, and I see a man standing there and he’s holding an incredibly small kitten,” said Jacy, the woman in question.
The man holding the kitten locked eyes with Jacy and saw she was wearing a facemask with cats on it.
This was his chance to ask for help!
The men approached her with the kitten in hand and asked her a simple, but shocking question.
“The moment he sees me, he opens up the door and says ‘do you want this kitten?’” Jacy said. “I was a little shocked, and then I said, ‘well, yes!’”
A Fateful Meeting
Jacy already had two adult cats in her home and wasn’t exactly planning on adopting a kitten.
However, the circumstances made her feel like this was the right decision.
“The night before I had decided I was going to get a new job, so I wasn’t going to be there much longer,” Jacy said.
“It felt like fate that a kitten would show up at this place that I’m going to be leaving soon,” Jacy remarked.
Jacy took the kitten a couple doors down where she worked and found a nice spot for him to settle down and relax until the shop closed.
Now all she had to do was break the news to her husband, Josh, that she had adopted another kitten without his approval…
“Please be my dad!”
At first, Jacy thought Josh would be upset that she had adopted the kitten so suddenly without speaking to him.
Josh didn’t seem very thrilled over the phone.
He’d recently said no to the idea of adopting another cat for practical reasons.
However, being the supportive husband that he is, Josh appeared at Jacy’s work moments later with a brand new food bowl full of tasty treats.
Josh took one look at the kitten and fell in love immediately.
There was no need to convince him! It was love at first sight.
Josh and Jacy took Blue to their home where he would spend plenty of quality time getting to know his new family.
When the couple got home, they picked up the kitten and gazed into his big blue eyes.
Just like that, they thought of the perfect name: Blue!
The next morning, they took Blue to the vet for a much needed wellness visit.
“He’s perfectly healthy,” Jacy said. “But the pads on his paws were a little bit burnt from the asphalt.”
He received all of his shots and it wasn’t long before his paws healed from the burns.
Blue was on track to be a healthy and happy kitten!
Grateful to be Rescued
Jacy could tell straight from the get go that Blue had never met a stranger.
He was very social and wanted to be everyone’s best friend.
“The moment he was handed to me, he went straight underneath my chin and started purring,” Jacy said. “He at no point seemed even afraid of my other cats.”
Her cats, Leo and Ozzy, took a little more time to warm up to Blue, but they were all playing together in no time.
When Blue wasn’t exploring and bouncing off the walls, he was curled up in a ball on Jacy or Josh’s lap.
Happily Ever After
Blue is the most affectionate cat Jacy and Josh have ever met.
