Tim was a homeless black kitten living in a groundhog hole in a vacant lot next to a business in North Carolina when he was rescued last year. Now he is a happy, healthy house cat.

Tim’s rescuer and adopter is Reddit user Natasha 10005, who tells Tim’s story in this series of photos, saying: “A year ago I found a kitten living in a groundhog hole in the empty lot beside my work. Just wanted to share Tim’s story!”

Natasha said of the other kittens: “Not sure what happened to them. They all disappeared one day except for Tim. I did see a black cat run across the lot the other day when I got to work so that may be one of his brothers still there. I tried to get close enough to them to catch them but they and the mom were all basically feral. We have a TNR (trap neuter release) program http://www.operationcatnip.org/ here where they fix them and notch their ears so if I see them again I’ll try and get some traps.”

Tim has adjusted beautifully to the new and better life Natasha 10005 has provided.

First vet visit. All clear! He was purring so loud the doc couldn't even hear his heartbeat.

Meeting his new brothers, Stewie and Chiba, for the first time. He had to be quarantined in my room for a week to make sure he didn't develop any respiratory infections or anything that could be passed on to the other cats.
