Michael Day, an artist from Chicago, was outside his home working on his spray paint art. When he turned around, he was surprised to see a little ball of fur sitting on his garden blocks, curiously watching him.
Michael had rescued stray cats from the neighborhood, but this was the first time he was approached by an alley cat. “I figured he wanted some food and water so I gave him both. We had a cat so we had extra food,” Michael told Love Meow.
He went on with his painting while the kitten sat on the blocks as his purr-fect audience.
When Michael looked for him again, the kitten was already gone. He couldn’t stop thinking about the little feline so left some food and water outside that night.
The next evening, while he continued his painting, he heard a little meow — it was his old pal, the ginger kitten, who came back to see him.
The little alley cat had been roaming around the neighborhood by himself, perhaps, searching for the right home to settle.
When he walked up to his human friend, wanting cuddles, Michael knew it was meant to be.
