Remember the sweet mama cat who followed a man every night begging for adoption? Well, this is what happened to her kittens in case you are curious. Meet Sonny and Sal, an adorable duo who was saved from the streets of Brooklyn, New York and thrived beautifully.
Sonny was the first one to be rescued by Flatbush Cats’ founder Will Zweigart, and he was purrfect in every way. The smol boi was spotted crying behind a garbage can with no mom nor siblings around.
Sonny was about 6 weeks old back then, and he was terrified to be separated from his family. He couldn’t stop meowing in distress, and Will promised Sonny that they could try their best to find the other cats and save them too.
Not long afterward, Will met his brother Sal right at the place where they found the little Sonny. And the very minute they brought Sal home, Sonny stopped crying.
This time, it was Sal who was scared out of his wits after suddenly being kidnapped, but thankfully Sonny was there to calm him down. Of course, chicken baby food also mattered too. Treats always work when you need to comfort tiny fur babies like these guys.
The two cuties were fostered in a small bathroom, but neither of them minded such a simple living space. In fact, they had a lot of fun with their rescuers there.
Both of them were cheerful, lovely little kids, but Sonny seemed to be the one who was a bit more attached to humans. He really liked climbing up their legs and inspecting their ears for some weird reasons they just didn’t understand.
Will and their foster mom knew they would have to say goodbye to these amazing kittens very soon, but it didn’t stop them from taking good care of them.
“People always tell me that they can’t foster because there’s no way they would be able to give up such a perfect cat. The thing is, it’s not really about us,” Will said. “It’s about saving lives.”
Sonny and Sal later were adopted out together as a pair, and they would always have each other to lean on for the rest of their lives.
