The Animal Welfare League of Arlington in Arlington, Virginia, USA, just received a litter of kittens. Kitten College volunteers worked hard to get them through, but two almost identical kittens required additional care. A shelter worker, Lauren Strycula, welcomed the kittens into her house.
Because they were so little, they snuggled together for warmth. They had various health issues, especially Jace, the youngest, who needed some time to learn to feed himself from a bottle; Jackie, his sister, remained by his side, helping him.
Both kittens improved as a result of the attention and medicines. They acquired weight and developed personalities. Jackie was extremely active and playful, while Jace was already sipping from the bottle and wiggled his ears in the process.
Almost identical kittens never leave each other’s side.
They developed their own identities; Jace became a mischievous youngster, while Jackie was calmer than her brother on her own, but they always sought one other’s company. They couldn’t be separated.
Lauren said to Love Meow:
“Kittens’ contagious joy in life, their quick trust in anybody they meet, their funny and contagious personalities, and their wonderful care for one another will stay with me forever. Although my part in the twins’ story is coming to an end, their happily ever after begins right now.
“We gradually introduced them to the rest of the house. They were bouncing off the walls and full of energy within hours of being home.
Alexandra said, ”
“Around midnight that night, Dad came upon some cat music that was supposed to help them relax. They had climbed into bed with us and cuddled up next to us the next thing we knew!’
“During the day, they enjoy lying in the hammock by the window and watching people walk their dogs; the birds are very attractive. They instantly come onto our laps and snuggle with us with the loudest purrs when they are not running.
The family is happy that the nearly identical kittens have been able to remain together; their relationship is wonderful. The parents of these children hope that by adopting in pairs, additional families would be inspired to do so; keeping these children together was the greatest decision they could make.
On their Instagram account, you can see a few more of these brothers’ and their family’s lovely pictures.
