What would you do if you heard crying noises but couldn’t see where they were coming from. You would investigate of course.

Well that’s what happened when this man was heading off to work one morning, he could hear crying noises coming from somewhere near his neighbors garage.

Scroll down to see what happened.


“I was heading to my service van to go to my first call for work when I heard crying.” He walked over to get a closer look and saw a tiny ball of fur hiding in some tall weeds and wailing at the top of his lungs.

He waited a while but the mother cat did not come back to retrieve her baby so he decided to take the tiny kitten into the house where he wife was. It was then that they noticed that the kitten still had his umbilical cord attached.


They quickly went to the store to get supplies and kitten formula so that they could start feeding him and after a full meal the tiny kitten quickly fell asleep, contented with his full belly.


It was time to take a trip to the vet where they discovered that the kitten was no more than a week old. Over the next few days the kitten opened his eyes and started to explore his new world.

“He’ll follow us everywhere and either hang out at our feet or sleep on our shoulders.” They decided to name him Casper and whenever he spots his human dad he demands cuddles, he’s such a little cuddlebug!


It’s now been two months since they found Casper in the neighbours yard and with lots of love, care and attention he has become a healthy, happy kitten.

It looks like they’re going to have a happy life together, this little cuddlebug has found his forever home.
