Yesterday I told you I had a new family member.
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.
