A stray cat wandered to the perfect home when he needed help.
Stephanie, an animal rescuer from Montreal, Canada, keeps a couple of cat shelters in her backyard for local strays every winter.
Right before the cold weather hit the area, a neighborhood cat showed up and sauntered into her yard. He discovered the cat houses and decided to hunker down in one.
Stephanie left food outside for the feline every day. She began asking around to see if someone was missing a cat, but no one came to claim him.
As the tabby became more comfortable with his food provider, he started to approach her doorstep, getting closer each day. Stephanie would see him waiting for her outside on the porch at mealtime.
When the weather got colder and the cat became bolder, she decided it was time to bring him inside.
She opened the door wide to let the cat in. He was a bit hesitant at first, but after a few minutes of probing around, the tabby started to get more acclimated to being indoors.
Stephanie has cats of her own, so she placed him in a separate room to help him settle in for the night. That evening, the kitty let out his first purr in front of his rescuer. He was still a bit shy but couldn’t resist all the attention and love. (Scroll down for video)
Chatons Orphelins Montréal, a local rescue, was contacted, and immediately offered to help.
The cat whom they named Teddy, received medical attention and was treated for parasites, mites, and ticks. The sweet feline was so happy to have cared for that he purred and chirped in pure bliss.
He’s equipped with a loud purr motor. Nothing makes him happier than getting some pets and snuggles.
Watch Teddy and hear his chirpy purrs in this cute video:
“Teddy is very sweet and friendly. He is a big teddy bear, always looking for attention and hugs,” Celine Crom of the rescue shared this.
“He will ask for cuddles and head scratches, and will roll on his back when he wants his belly rubbed.”
At around three years old, Teddy is still a kitten at heart. When he demands attention from his humans, he will meow and look them in the eyes.
“After a rough life on the streets, all he wants now is love,” Celine said.
The tabby cat walked up to the perfect home for help and is now living the VIP life as an indoor cat.
“He is ready to find a place of his own and forever humans to share cuddles with.”
