Orphaned Kitten Brings Joy To Wife Following Miscarriage


Imgur user  and his wife have finally found healing in the form of a calico kitten named Callie.

The caring husband wrote that his wife had a miscarriage two months ago. Devastated, she spent the next several weeks feeling down and depressed. The online user said that he kept trying to make her feel better, but nothing worked…until he enlisted the help of little Callie!

“I saw that a shelter in another town had brought this little girl in after her mother was killed,” he wrote on Imgur. “Her face and her eyes just brought a calmness over me and I thought she might make my wife feel the same.”

He explained that the orphaned kitten had been bottle fed until she could eat on her own, and said that she is “an absolute sweetheart” and he “had to take her home.”

When they got in the car, Callie didn’t like being in her carrier, so she spent most of the hour-and-a-half ride on her human dad’s lap!

When the husband brought their new kitten home, his wife was elated. And it seemed that this intuitive kitten knew that her new mom needed her.

“She and Callie bonded immediately,” he wrote. “Callie is constantly snuggled up to her momma and sleeps tucked up to her stomach at night.”

“We have had her for 5 days now an I haven’t seen my wife this happy in a long time,” he said.

Callie quickly made herself at home, and her humans fell in love with her affectionate demeanor silly quirks. She loves to sleep stretched out on her back, and perches on the highest point she can find in each room as if watching over her forever family.

And it wasn’t long before this loving couple got even more good news!

“This morning I was cleaning the litter box and got a tap on the shoulder. When I turned around, my wife had this pregnancy test and the biggest smile on her face,” the husband wrote. “Little Callie is going to be a sister!”
