They were home one day when to their complete surprise their cat walks through the pet door with a kitten hanging limply from his mouth.
He strolled through the door with a kitten dangling from his jaws, held gently by the scruff of its neck. He had clearly decided that this kitten was going part of this family no matter what and that it was here to stay.
Reddit user SkyGuy182 could see that the little furball was filthy and absolutely riddled with fleas, so he quickly gave him a bath. The kitten was not too pleased with the enforced cleanliness but looked a completely different kitty afterward.
It was pretty clear as far as Strider was concerned this kitten was here to stay, so how could SkyGuy182 disagree, so he named him Gimli. What Strider did was similar to another cat, except she took off with the new family pet held by the scruff of the neck.
It’s not the first time Strider has brought home young ones. Apart from bugs and mice etc, “one day he found a whole group of squirrel pups! He gingerly brought each one to a safe spot next to our house and just watched them!” They had to be taken to an animal shelter as SkyGuy182 had no trust in Strider’s ability to raise them.
