Caturday Fairy Tail

Once Upon a Kitten

Once there was “A mythical woodland creature tiny abandoned kitten who found a group of friendly giants hikers at a magical forest Red River Gorge, Kentucky. “He clearly cast a spell on us adopted us by using his powers of the Qte following us for half a mile through the woods.” They named him Red.”

  1. Red is both beautiful AND clever–a good combo. More Men of CO candidates too.

    I just melted. *sigh*

  3. Smartypants says:

    …and they lived happily ever after.

  4. Rachael says:

    Best story of the week. You never know where you’ll find love. Or where love will find you. 🙂

  5. Loved it! The nap in the helmet was the best. Men of CO for sure…

  6. That second pic is killing me…

  7. I think I fainted when I saw the picture of the kitteh in the guy’s jacket!!! So sweet!

    …Although now I’m a little sad thinking about this cute little baby out in the woods all alone…

  8. I need the end of the story! What happened to the kitten? Did he get adopted somewhere? They didn’t leave him in the woods, surely?

  9. I would hike more often if I came home with a cute little inky each time.

  10. Oh D. kitteh tucked in next to that manly chest has left me in a swoon too. What shall we do? Oh I know, order the Cute Men of CO Quaterly! (hint hint.)

  11. Shaz: The article says “…they went home with a new addition.” All is well. 🙂

  12. whatthelump says:

    Gah, too beautiful for words. Good goin’ kitty, for doggedly (kittedly?) following them, and the hoomins for adopting him!

  13. The look on Red’s face when he’s in the guy’s jacket? “You belong to me now.”

  14. Poor little kitty. Lucky guys, he is so cute. Thank you for adopting him

  15. AWW 😀 I am so glad that dear sweet little black kitty found his loving forever home 😀

  16. Smartypants says:

    I love the next-to-last pic, where he is ‘steering’ his new friend from his shoulders!

  17. prinsas says:

    I, like the kitteh in the helmet, am just a warm puddle now. I second, third and fourth nominations for MOCO 🙂

  18. Martine says:

    I love happy endings….

  19. Gryt: Thanks! Phew! I missed the link somehow. Oof. 🙂

  20. Persistence!! That’s the key! Plus, gazing longingly up at Human Owner Candidate.

  21. I wonder if these people are fans of the show “The Blacklist” because that is the name of James Spader’s character which is “Red”

    The kitteh was soo cute I had to share!!

  23. Gah the kitty in his jacket all, “And you shall me by hoomin” *melts*
