Ray Vargas always considered himself a “dog person.” He had never owned a cat in his life. Until one cold and rainy night something happened that changed his perspective. Ray heard a noise outside his bedroom window and when he investigated the sound he was shocked. It was a crying newborn kitten with its eyes still closed.
Ray discovered the kitten abandoned on the roof of his shed, the mother nowhere to be found. He knew he had to do something or the poor thing would surely die.
“This little orphan did not appreciate being left out in the rain so I picked up a kitten feeder kit complete with formula and bottle,” Ray told We Love Cats and Kittens. He warmed the baby up and stayed with him through the night, administering regular feedings.
Soon Ray’s nurturing paid off, the kitten began eating more and his fate no longer hung in the balance. He grew stronger and eventually opened his eyes for his first look at the world.
Ray named the cat Bagheera and they are inseparable to this day. “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,” says Ray. “Best decision I ever made.”
