Animals don’t always have the easiest lives. Sure, a ton of them have wonderful homes and loving humans to care for them, but many more, unfortunately, do not. Every day, animal lovers go out of their way to help these creatures and change their lives for the better. Sometimes, it’s harder than it sounds. Some of these animals have been through a lot, and they require medical treatment and round-the-clock care. Sadly, in these situations, babies are always the most vulnerable.
When an animal is rescued, you can see the love and gratitude in their eyes. It’s a cold world out there, especially for a defenseless creature, and it can be hard to get by alone. I’ve often heard math referred to as the universal language— but it doesn’t take a linguist to tell you that the true universal language is love.
When a rescue animal looks into your eyes with a look that says, “Thank you for saving my life,” the emotions are enough to warm even the coldest heart. From that moment on, you share the strongest bond, one that can never be broken.
That’s what one young man discovered when he rescued a tiny kitten from the street. There’s not much information about what happened, but the picture has gone viral many times over.
I’ve tried to find the original source but the adorable snap has been shared so many times, it’s difficult to trace the web back. When can be determined, however, was that the pictures were shared by a girl named Zilara and feature her brother after saving a tiny kitten.
In the photos, the kitten is nestled in the man’s arms. He wears a blue T-shirt and snapback hat, but on his lap sits the tiny kitten in a towel. Although the man looks huge next to the tiny kitten’s body, the picture shows a moment of peace and love.
The rescued kitten stares lovingly into the man’s eyes, and he returns her gaze with the exact same emotion. Remember when I said rescuing an animal creates an unbreakable bond? This photo shows the exact moment when that bond was created.
After rescuing the small kitten and sharing this amazing moment, the young man couldn’t help but take her home. Other photos show the tiny kitten getting acquainted with her new residence, rolling and laying in the carpet’s comfy fluff.
The tiny kitten was reportedly named Kaya, and the loving bond observed in the photos has only grown stronger since. Even though this story doesn’t have many details, the visuals are truly what create an emotional effect.
This kitten was lonely and abandoned. She probably wouldn’t have survived on her own— and if she did, it would not have been a happy life. Now, thanks to one loving man, Kaya has the home and family she’s been waiting for— and we got to see the exact moment firsthand.
Kitten season is fast approaching, and it’s a time when rescues are flooded with kittens and pregnant cats. If you come across an abandoned kitten in your travels, please do everything you can to help. In this day and age, we often place our needs above those of others. But, as these pictures show, you should never underestimate the impact you can have on a life.
