A tiny one week old kitten came to an animal clinic without a mom.
“My girlfriend is a vet. Someone dropped off this 1 week old kitten,” said TeddyPeep via reddit. They named him Orange Pekoe.
“It was tough bottle feeding Pekoe and fortunately, we found a mother who had just had a litter of kittens for him to nurse with. He’s been WAY happier,” he added. “She’s a really sweet momma kitty. As soon as we got her home, she flopped down for the babies to eat. It was pretty darn cute.” (reddit)
“Pekoe loves sitting in our laps and he purrs CONSTANTLY.” After fostering the little ginger kitty for a period of time, they simply couldn’t part with him.
Meet Orange Pekoe! He was just 1 week old when he was dropped off at the vet’s. They took him home and started caring for him round the clock.
They found Pekoe a surrogate mom, and she laid down and let him nurse right away. “Our kitten looks SO content that he has a surrogate momma kitty.”
“Are you my sister?”

Orange Pekoe is such a momma’s boy. After fostering him for a period of time, they simply couldn’t part with him. He’s there to stay forever!
Now: Pekoe’s grown into a handsome cat!
