Kittens Found in Warehouse Together, One of Them Needs Help to Walk, and the Other Never Leaves His Side

Two kittens were found in a warehouse together. One of them needed help to walk, and the other never left his side.

A Good Samaritan found a pair of kittens in a warehouse, all by themselves. She noticed that one of them had twisted hind legs and reached out to local rescues for help.

“When I received the intake request, I couldn’t say no,” Caroline Grace, founder of Baby Kitten Rescue (in Los Angeles) shared. “I picked up the kittens (Ben and Jerry) and started assessing and stabilizing them.”

The kittens were treated for fleas, dehydration, and a mild eye infection (for Ben). They felt so much better and curled up next to each other in their cozy, warm bed for a long nap.

X-rays showed no abnormalities with Jerry’s bones, and his legs were twisted due to contracted tendons. With the help of a team of physical therapists, they came up with a treatment plan for Jerry.

Jerry received daily stretching exercises and leg massages to help loosen his stiff hind limbs. “Once his tendons have softened enough, we will start splinting his legs into the correct position.”

Whenever Jerry was getting worked on, Ben would look for him. Once he returned to the nest, Ben would come right over and shower him with snuggles and purrs.

In just a few days, Jerry made visible improvements on his left leg.

“Through all the physical therapy, splinting, stretching, and massaging, Jerry remains the sweetest, most loving boy. He’s such a good eater, and he purrs constantly.”

At 4-5 weeks old, Ben and Jerry became more active and started venturing out of their nest. Ben would lead the way to new adventures, and Jerry would watch and follow suit.

In no time, both kittens figured out their litter box, and wrestled and played with each other like pros.

“Ben is Jerry’s protector. He always checks on Jerry and literally wraps his arms around him. As soon as you pick him up, Ben just melts into your arms and snuggles into you, purring.”
