Man Saves A Newborn Kitten From The Roof Of A Shed After Mama Cat Abandoned Him

Sharing is caring!

Whenever you tell yourself you’re a dog person the universe will find a way to prove you wrong. Trust me, I’ve been there. 

Meet Ray Vargas, an artist from California. Ray was considering himself a ‘dog person’ pretty much all his life.

However, a rainy cold night changed everything for Ray. He was in his bedroom when he heard a cry for help. Ray immediately took it upon himself to figure out where the sound was coming from.

He discovered a newborn gray kitten right on the roof of his shed. Unfortunately, mama cat was nowhere to be found… It seemed like she abandoned him.

Ray took the kitty in without a second thought, and he said:

“This little orphan did not appreciate being left out in the rain tonight…”

With no time to waste, Ray bought a tube feeder kit and some kitten formula. Getting food in his system was crucial for him to survive.

Getting completely smitten by the kitten, Ray named him Bagheera. Bagheera’s first vet visit went smoothly, as shared in Ray’s Instagram post:

“Clean bill of health from the vet yesterday (despite weighing in at less than an ounce!)…Welcome to life; not a bad 10 day start for this fighter.”

From this day forward, Ray and Bagheera never left each other’s side. He started following Ray around the house and decided his favorite spot to relax was in Ray’s arms.

Bagheera enjoys his dad’s company almost every day. Since Ray works from home, Bagheera can lend a helping paw if needed!

In conclusion, Ray is grateful he opened his bedroom window on that fateful night. In a birthday post dedicated to Bagheera, he wrote:

“I had no idea that bringing in an abandoned newborn out of the rain that night would lead this avowed dog person to own my very first pet, a cat no less. Best decision I ever made!”

Thanks to Ray, Bagheera will only know the warmth of their home for the rest of his days. No more rainy and lonely nights for this handsome boy!
