It was mid-November when the kitten first showed up at a family's house. Allyson Radach's children spotted the little ginger boy underneath their trampoline. They befriended him by giving him some food, and the kitten decided to stick around.

The family has a chicken coop where nine chickens reside. Caramel took a liking to the warm shed and started spending a lot of time in the coop, cuddling with his unlikely friends.

"The kitten found his way into the coop. At first he was so tiny he could fit through the fencing of the run," Allyson told Love Meow.

They built an insulated cat house with a heating source just for the kitten, but little Caramel never used it and stayed in the coop with his friends all day long.

Caramel followed his feathery friends around. If they were out by the shed, he tagged along. One time they found Caramel lying on the eggs over the nesting boxes, purring away.

He gets along beautifully with the chickens and his feathery friends enjoy his company, too.

While the chickens walk around the coop, eating grits, the kitten gives himself a bath, chilling along.

The family never expected to have a cat, but little Caramel found his way into their hearts.

Their family dog Newt took to the little ginger buddy, and they quickly bonded. "He has grown quite a bit and now comes outside," Allyson told Love Meow.

Though Caramel is spending more time with his buddy Newt and his humans inside the house, he often visits the coop to hang out with his feathery friends, giving them snuggles and love.
