A tiny three week old kitten was saved from death row when a dog and a cat offered to be his foster parents.

Say hello to Reggie the tuxedo.


“He wound up in a kill shelter in NYC and was given a pretty short time limit before they would have to put him down,” explains Kelly.

“North Shore Animal League pulled him and asked if I could foster so now he’s with me. He is a very sweet kitten.”


When he arrived at his foster home with Kelly, Suzie the kitten loving dog immediately took him under her wing.

And along with Kushi the one-eyed cat he became part of the family, something he had never before known.


In just a few days, Reggie went from being on death row to now in the loving arms of his foster siblings.

Kushi loves to cuddle him…


And Suzie, like any parent, is very protective of him.


Little Reggie has now claimed his human’s hoodie as his new bed.

In fact, anything soft now belongs to him!


Reggie loves his new foster mama very much…


And feels safe and loved by all in his foster home.


He couldn’t be in a better place and he loves them all back just as much as they love him.


UPDATE: Reggie is now ruling the roost in his new forever home.
