Get ready, your heart is about to melt.
Are you mush?
Yep, so is every one else who sets on eyes on sweet baby Mustang Bartholomew. Such a big name for a little kitten, and with a heart as big as his, it fits. But Bartholomew almost didn’t have a chance to share his love with the world.
At six weeks old, Bartholomew was found crying and alone on a porch in Los Angeles, CA. Jamie Orozco heard the cries of a kitten and over a few days searched out the source. Jamie found the tiny kitten and knew help was needed.
As Bartholomew was so small, half the size he should have been at six weeks, he required a little time on his own before he could meet the other kittens. Once he did, the group became quite the happy band of mischief makers.
“Olivia, Ophelia, Opal and Oliver fully accepted Bartholomew as their new brother and he was already learning how to cat from them,” commented Ashley.
And his disposition? “He’s the sweetest little guy I have ever met, and he is very cuddly.”
So, he’s as sweet as he is achingly adorable.
Little Lap Cat is Preparing for his Forever Home
Bartholomew can’t help himself, he’s a snugly tabby by nature. Besides curling up with his brothers and sisters, he will claim an empty lap in a hurry. In fact, when Bartholomew and his kitten siblings moved in with Jen Marder, he was the first of the fuzzy babies to climb in her lap.
Oh, and here’s a picture of Bartholomew’s jellybean toes, just in case your heart hasn’t completely melted…
Jen is also a volunteer with Wrenn Rescues and took up care of the five as they had grown from infants to curious kittens ready to discover the world around them. Her goal is to ready them for their forever homes.
Her most recent posts on Instagram shows Bartholomew thriving and getting closer to adoption every day. Food, play, and lap time have him growing into quite the handsome grey tiger.
Of Bartholomew, Jen told LoveMeow, “He always has to be part of the action. He loves to jump up onto my back and likes being loved and being close. Probably the funniest thing he does is growl at his food and his toys while he has them in his mouth.”
If cuteness hasn’t killed you yet, watch this…
Baby Bartholomew survived rough beginnings and thanks to kindhearted rescuers, his story has many chapters yet to go.
