Starting Life in a Cardboard Box
Abandoned in a cardboard box left in a campground with no chance of surviving, were 4 newborn kittens. It was one of the hottest days of the summer and a woman walking around came across the box. She took the 4 newborn kittens to a fostering program. The four kittens were placed in a home and required bottle feeding for weeks. Day after day, the little fluffballs grew stronger and soon each one found their forever home. One of the kittens was adopted by the foster mom’s daughter Chalder Alteri, and Charlie became the most affectionate cat ever.
Charlie The Foster Dad
Charlie’s new owner decided to start fostering kittens just like her mom and was worried in the beginning how Charlie would react. He was a natural foster dad. “Charlie loves giving the kittens baths and cuddling with them,” Alteri said. “He even lets them fake nurse!”.
Every Kitten Gets Love
Every kitten that Alteri has fostered has received love and guidance from Charlie. Maybe because Charlie started off as a foster cat, he understands what it is like. He goes out of his way to make the kittens trust him, and in turn, they trust their foster mom. The story has come full circle and Charlie is making a huge difference in the lives of any foster kitten that comes into his home.
