He showed up out of nowhere so shy and clearly very very hungry.
Klarieke and her husband live on a small farm with her family in Holland. They share their lovely old cottage with three cats, Jack, Louis, and Stavros. And, as they were about to find out, a very skinny fourth cat.
Around a month ago a tiny kitten had appeared out of nowhere in their yard. He was very shy, very skinny, and very hungry. Klarieke had never seen the tiny feline before and wondered if he belonged to anyone?
After having a chat with her husband they decided that three cats were more than enough should he turn out to be homeless.
“I promised my sweetheart that I will not surreptitiously arrange a fourth cat in the house, but I have also indicated that I will not let a kitten starve on my doorstep, said Klarieke.
After disappearing for a few days, the kitten returned. This time Karieke was surprised to find him hanging with her older cat Stavros. The two of them began to play on and off throughout the rest of the week.
Perhaps Stavros knew what the kitten was going through. He himself had been adopted by Klarieke and her husband over a year ago from Greece.
“Stavros was rescued by a Dutch girl who stays in Zakynthos every summer. She was looking for a home (for the cat) in Holland, so we decided to adopt him,” said Klarieke.
