If a cat adopts you into their life, it is something you should be honored about. Feral cats are not often friendly with strangers, so if a cat approaches you, they really must think highly of you.
It is estimated that there are 70 million feral cats in the United States. They are born outdoors and usually have very limited human interaction, if at all. Sadly, this overpopulation of feral cats leads to many of their deaths. Thankfully, there are wonderful people in the world, like this woman who has created a shelter for feral cats.
While these feral animals may not often like humans, some do adopt people. One mama cat adopted Jamie and her boyfriend after they fed her. Ever since that day, she has returned to them for more food. But one day, she came to them with something much more urgent.

The mama brought them her baby! She had a little ginger boy, but Jamie noticed something was wrong with him.
“We found him and immediately knew that something was wrong. He would hike his leg up and his hip would jet out real far. We thought maybe his little hip was broken,” Jamie told Love Meow.
This mama cat knew that she could trust Jamie with her baby, so she left the little guy with her.
Jamie and her boyfriend decided to name him Milo!
After taking him in, they brought him to the vet to see what was wrong. The poor baby had a broken tibia and fibula!
Luckily, that was something the vet could fix with a cast.
Since his rescue, Milo hasn’t left his new parents’ side! He’s very happy to be indoors and showered with their love.
But his mama prefers to stay outdoors. She comes by for her daily feedings, and Jamie hopes she’ll join little Milo inside one day!
Don’t forget to SHARE Milo’s journey with all of your friends and family!
