Max Adams was hiking in -20 degree weather in Alberta, Canada, something he does every year to raise money for charity.

He was planning on completing a 60km hike but then he heard something in the trees that made him stop in his tracks.

He looked over and spotted a kitten, all alone and crying out for help.

There was no way he would leave this kitty behind in such freezing temperatures.


The little kitten was very pleased to see Max, he must’ve been out there on his own for quite some time.

They quickly became friends and the little furball jumped up onto his shoulder for cuddles.

The hike would now have to wait, so Max turned around and headed back towards the car.

It was about to 10 km away, but once in the car he could check out the local farms to see if any of them were missing their cat.


There weren’t many farms in the area and Max thought this kitten really needed to come out of the cold and into a warm place.

On the walk back the kitten would journey some of the way on his shoulder but would also jump down and follow him along the road.


Max thought about giving him a name but first he should look for their possible owners, and of course once you name an animal you begin an attachment to them.

But soon Max found the little kitten’s family, the day he went missing there was a massive snowstorm and his family had looked everywhere for him.


Imagine how this little kitty felt when he realized he was lost. He’d been missing four days, alone in the wild trying to survive in such freezing conditions.

The family were elated to have their kitty home again, but because the little girl was so upset at losing her cat the parents had decided to get another kitten.


What were they going to do next? A big decision was made that would make everyone happy.
