Two cats showed up on a farm needing help. They ended up making another ginger cat family.
Two bonded ginger cats were found on a farm, in rough shape. They were scruffy, scrawny, and very hungry. Despite it all, they were always together and never out of eyesight from each other.
The finder sent out a plea for help, hoping to get the cats the medical attention they needed. A shelter responded and offered to take the brothers, while local animal rescuers worked together to bring them to safety.
The cats tested positive for feline leukemia (FeLV). The shelter didn’t have the resources to care for them, so Chatons Orphelins Montreal, a cat rescue, stepped up to help.
“We named them Tango and Mango. Tango (the one with the injured mouth) was very timid when he first arrived, but once he started to heal, his true personality came out,” the rescue shared.
They were in need of a foster home for recovery and socialization.
A family who previously adopted a FeLV cat, Kubrick, from Chatons Orphelins Montreal, learned about the two brothers and didn’t hesitate to open their home to foster them, since they can only live with other FeLV cats.
Their cat Kubrick was rescued when he was a few months old. Through painstaking care, he was nursed back to health and really blossomed.
Kubrick has turned into a fluffy little “lion” with a voracious appetite and an abundance of curiosity.
“Tango was extremely fearful and spent the first three weeks hiding behind a toilet. He had an injured mouth and needed dental treatment,” the foster family shared.
“Fortunately, there was Mango with him who gave him tenderness and hugs. They got used to us and the house, and now they are like kings.”
Mango never left his brother’s side while he was recovering. He kept him company and provided comfort through his famous loud purrs.
