A man went to the store to get cat food, but ended up adopting a 25 lb rescue cat. Pumpkin the cat literally squeaked at him when they opened the cage door for them to meet.

“Look at this guy. Sweetest cat ever. Since he’s from the UK, and we live on a street called Hebron, we’ve renamed him. Meet Pumpkin Cumberbatch Pierce, the Duke of Hebron,” reddit user GREGORIOtheLION wrote.

“When I walked into the PetSmart to get food, I saw this dude, Pumpkin, in the SPCA adoption center. His paperwork said he was 25 lbs and came from England. His owners brought him here and had a kid, so they dumped him after 6 years because he was ‘too needy’. Whatever.”

“I called my wife in from the car because when the employee opened the cage for me, he literally squeaked at me. It was love at first sight for us.”

“With the adoption came instructions that we need to get his weight down. Which we’ve done before with our other cat. The vet said he’s actually 21.8 lbs, and we need to get him to 13. He’s the most affectionate cat we’ve ever had. We normally don’t keep the name they come with, but what else do you call a 25 lb orange cat?”

“He’s digging the office, where we’re keeping him while he and our other cat get to know each other. Loves the tree.”

“Upon letting our other cat, Bartleby, into the office (trading them out for a few minutes), he smells everything in sight. While Pumpkin just lays on the couch to say “I don’t need to smell anything. I’m home.”

Tiger the kitten asked a man to adopt him at the shelter. The human didn’t stand a chance.

“This is how I met Tiger at the shelter. How could I not adopt him?” the human wrote via YouTube.

Then this happened… “My new kitten Tiger trying to falling asleep in my lap… but his head won’t let him! In the beginning you’ll see my other new kitten Buddy, also resting on my lap.”

At Animal Rescue League of Berks County, children can read to shelter cats to soothe them. The cats adore them and are always delighted to have these little humans there to keep them company.

Children in grades 1-8 who are able to read at any level are welcome into the shelter to read to the cats at their adoption room. “The program will help children improve their reading skills while also helping the shelter animals. Cats find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing,” the shelter wrote.

Meet Sparrow the odd eyed kitty.

“I got him from the shelter and he was the only one who didn’t get adopted from his litter. I was so surprised. He’s also the sweetest cat I’ve ever met… I’m lucky to have such a great cat.
