Remember the kitty who grew up with his protector Ultraman? Here's his full story!
A Japanese family rescued a tiny 3-day-old kitten who was found without his mom and siblings. They took him home and gave him an unusual friend to grow up with.
They named him Koma.
When they found the little orphaned kitten, his eyes hadn't even opened.
"At that time, he was alone, and he was about 3 days after birth," Mai Narushima told Love Meow. They became his family.
They wanted to document Koma's growth and get him a friend to keep him company. When they saw the Ultraman figurine, who was at the same length as the tiny kitten, they thought it was perfect.
The family placed Ultraman next to their precious fur baby. It looked as if the Japanese super hero was watching over him.
"You are not alone any more! I'm here for you."

Ultraman can't wrap his arms around his fur buddy any more. Koma is a big kitty now!
10 months ago, they found the kitten and gave him a loving home and a protective friend.
Now he's all grown up! The two buddies are still together.
Update: Koma just turned 1 year old!
