A Montreal family contacted rescue organization Chatons Orphelins Montréal when they spotted two motherless kittens wandering around outside, never straying far from each other and each seemingly watching out for the other. Volunteer Stephany came to rescue the young tabbies and took them for veterinary care, and to the foster home of Celine Crom.
The sibling felines seemed nervous at first, but relaxed considerably when they were wrapped, burrito-style together. Just the close presence of each other was a calming influence. The kittens are visibly more content when they have each other near for moral support.
The feline brother and sister pair may rely heavily on each other, but their personalities couldn’t be more opposite. The little grey tabby female, Calie, is the clear leader of the duo and shows much more bravado than her more subdued brother, a ginger tabby, Gusto. He follows wherever his sister goes and whatever she does.
Still, the two prefer to be together. They learned together how to eat like big kitties from a plate, and they enjoy all kinds of kitten-play and mischief-making together. Most of their time is spent engaging in the rough-and-tumble play so characteristic of kittens of their age, but when their energy is spent, the feline duo is napping…always together.
