Jazmin Felder knew exactly what to do when she heard meowing coming from a tree in her yard last year. “I was raised to always take care of what life brought to me,” Felder shared. “And every time a cat crossed my doorstep, I gave them a home of their own and all of my love.”
The fearful stray, who’s later named Buddy, was happy someone finally came to his aid. Jazmin welcome him to her family of four felines. “He was at the very top and he was so happy to see someone he came running down to me,” Felder said. “We brought him inside and he was so happy to be there.”
However, a new problem surfaced. Buddy didn’t seem to want to get along with other cats. He would withdraw himself to his own corner, completely separating himself from the rest. Things didn’t change until six months after Buddy arrived, a 5-week-old gray kitten named Hannah was taken in by Felder.
Unlike Buddy, who is a shy loner, Hannah was warm and outgoing. “She’s extremely playful, and loves to cuddle up with you and sleep,” Felder said. “She will run around with our dogs like she’s one too.” And somehow, the two got along exceptionally well. Maybe it’s just like the two pole of the magnet; opposites attracts.
“When we first brought Hannah home, Buddy instantly came to see her,” Felder noted. “He has always been reserved and shy, but from the first moment of meeting her his entire personality changed.”
“They don’t just show affection while grooming one another, they hug and comfort each other,” Felder said. “When friends and family visit they all tease how they want a love like Buddy and Hannah.”
Undoubtedly, Hannah is the best thing ever happened to Buddy’s life. The kitty made him put away his needs to be a lone wolf. Her warmth reached him, and Buddy may finally open up to others. Felder couldn’t be more pleased to see her furbabies so fond of each other: “Seeing the bond they have formed together and seeing how Hannah brings out his happiness melts my heart.”
