Nearly Identical Kittens Never Leave Each Other's Side After Being Rescued Together

A pair of bonded kittens insisted on staying together after being rescued.

Earlier this summer, a litter of kittens was brought to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington in Arlington, Virginia for a chance at a better life. Volunteers at their Kitten College program worked tirelessly around the clock to care for them.

Two smaller litter mates were in need of extra attention. Lauren Strycula, a foster volunteer of the rescue, stepped in to help and brought them home.

The little bundles of fur huddled up, keeping each other comforted for the first few days. They were so tiny and fragile and had a few health issues to battle. Jace, the little brother, had a rough start and took a while to figure out how to eat from a bottle. Jackie, the sister, would wriggle up to his side to keep him company.

Haley Waugh

A tabby kitten was brought into Front Street Animals (in Sacramento, California) for a chance at a better life. She had an obvious head tilt, and one of her pupils was smaller than the other.

“I named her Tortellini after the condition torticollis, which causes a tilt,” Haley Waugh, volunteer engagement leader at Front Street Animals shared.

Haley took the kitten home to foster, so she could stay in a kitten-proof environment while they continued to monitor her condition. Despite the tilt, the tabby girl could do most things and tried her hardest to master the art of balancing.
