Thinking they were receiving one kitten, this shelter was in for a bit of surprise!
A shelter in North Carolina received a cat carrier one day that held what they thought was a solitary kitten. While they were casting about looking for a potential foster parent they pulled out the towel left behind in the carrier only to find their solitary kitten was not solitary at all, making this somewhat of a mystery.
Hiding under the towel was another kitten. Sarah Kelly volunteering with Sparkle Cat Rescue, as foster Mom was not at all fazed by the extra find, stepping right up to the plate to help.
“We don’t know anything about them except for they were brought in together and appear to be a few weeks apart in age,” said a representative from Kellys Foster Kittens.
Having just left a bookstore earlier that day they decided to name the two kittens Barnes, the younger kitten, and Noble the older one. Barnes happened to be about half the size of the older kitten. Still, they were clearly bonded and Barnes clung to his older much fluffier adopted brother for all he was worth.
The interesting thing was, though Noble was older than Barnes, he was much more timid than his younger sibling.
