Kittens cling to one other as though they had known each other their entire lives, although coming from different paths.

Two kittens who came from separate paths, cling to each other as if they have been together all their lives.

BinooCeline @comrescuemontrealA kitten named Binoo was rescued from a sad situation when he was around seven weeks old. He arrived at Chatons Orphelins Montreal, a cat rescue, with a host of health issues.

“He had been neglected and wasn’t weaned. He was very underweight at about 600 grams and had lived with some stomach trouble for a long time,” Celine Crom of the rescue shared.

The kitten was immediately treated and cleaned. Despite everything he’d gone through, he was very friendly and eager for affection.

Celine @comrescuemontrealWith proper care and quality food, Binoo started to make steady gains, his tummy issues abated, and he felt like a new kitten.

When he was nursed back to health, he truly blossomed. “He was very vocal at the vet and loved to be babied. Once he was in foster care, he quickly learned to eat solid food.”

Celine @comrescuemontrealAs much as he adored attention from his foster family, he yearned for a constant playmate, a nap buddy.

While Binoo was recuperating, another kitten, a few weeks his junior, was found as an orphan on the road by a Good Samaritan. He was frail and just half the size for his age.

Trooper@comrescuemontrealVolunteers bottle-fed him every three hours and tended to his wounds. After a few days of painstaking care, he perked up and was strong enough to suckle from the bottle on his own.

“We named him Trooper. He was such a fighter and started to be active again.”

Celine @comrescuemontreal“He was just skin and bones when he came to us but has since been putting on weight and gaining strength.”

Trooper would nuzzle up to the resident cat and his people whenever he had a chance, as if he was starved of love. He didn’t want to be alone and pined for a constant feline friend.

Trooper loves to be heldCeline @comrescuemontrealWhen he was healthy and ready to socialize with other foster kittens, he met Binoo, and it was love at first sight.

The two kittens hit it off instantly at their meet-and-greet. They started playing and roughhousing with each other, and Binoo even tried to groom Trooper like a big brother would.

Binoo and Trooper@comrescuemontrealThe two enjoy zooming around the room, pouncing and wrestling until they tire out. Then, they’ll curl up next to each other in a bed by the window or in a cat tree.

They are an inseparable pair, clinging to each other like two peas in a pod.
