The Rescue of Charlie

Yesterday I told you I had a new family member.  
 
Introducing Charlie!
 
Because he is my cousin and he doesn't have to live with me I can get all excited about him!  He's adorable and sweet and I don't have to share my cheese with him.  It's awesome.
 
 
But, Charlie has quite the rescue story. 
 
It all started one day when my human uncle went for a long bike ride with his friends.   When they were out in the middle of nowhere...you guessed it...Charlie darted out.  They were surprised and being the amazing humans they are...they stopped.  Charlie was afraid, but when there was a bit of water and food involved, he allowed himself to be caught.  
 
Here is a picture of the field where he was found.  There is nothing there.   No farm, no houses.  Nothing.

 
So then, how to get him safely out of there?   They were 17 miles from where they parked their car.  So, this little purr muffin allowed himself to be safely zipped into my uncle's cycling jersey and they rode back to the car.  He just settled in.  Whoa!
 
He was checked out and he was treated for fleas and stuff and now he's living the good life.

 
He's enjoying his new big brother.

 
And he's mastered the art of couch surfing.
 
This little boy was estimated to be 11 weeks old and we'll never know how he ended up in that field all alone.   We're just glad he's family now.

That's an amazing story indeed. Poor mite - so little and all alone in that big field. We are so glad he has a wonderful Forever Home! We hope you will share news of him from time to time.

Purrs,

Oh, we don't really want to think about how poor sweet little Charlie ended up in the middle of nowhere. But that was the hand of Fate for sure, that your uncle found him. What a wonderful rescue story; we're so, so happy for Charlie!

Purrs and peace.

What a sweet little kitty Charlie is, and a very lucky one. I am glad he ran out when your uncle was passing and got saved.

We're so glad that he was found since he was out there all alone! Those black paw pads on his white paws are adorable. He looks like he walked through an ink pad!

It's times like this we wish we could talk human...then Charlie could tell us how he ended up way out there in the middle of no where! What a lucky guy he was that your human uncle came by that day!

Charlie is one very lucky kitten, and your uncle is one very awesome guy! We're elated that Charlie was rescued and has such a wonderful forever home now.

Thank goodness your uncle found Charlie. Mom bean says some dumb a$$ probably dropped him off in the field, and she shudders to think what might have happened to him had your beans not found him.

He sure is a cutie!
