A cat dad and his only son were found on the street. They looked out for each other until kind people came to help them.

Last month, Little Wanderers NYC received a rescue request for a father cat and his kitten living in the trash area of a neighborhood.

About a week earlier, a cat tree was reportedly discarded in the location, and then a friendly orange and white cat appeared with a kitten in tow. No one came to claim them, so a concerned member of the community sought help for them.

Residents from the neighborhood who volunteer for Little Wanderers NYC leaped into action.

They located the father and son duo and secured them with ease. The cat dad was instantly affectionate with his rescuers, asking for attention and pets. After feeding on food scraps from the trash, they were thrilled to have real food and clean water.

The father and son left the street that day and embraced a hopeful new beginning.

While the cat was treated for stomach troubles, the kitten received help to remove all the pesky fleas. With proper medical care and a cushy home, they were finally on the mend.

"Marcos (the dad) was the absolute sweetest thing. He was so calm and trusting immediately, which is rare," Morgan, foster carer, shared with Love Meow.

His baby son, also named Morgan, was confused and apprehensive about his new surroundings, but Marcos's confidence quickly reassured him. Watching his dad interact with people encouraged him to be brave.

Soon, Morgan came out of his shell and got his bearings in the new space. "He has a sweet yet spicy kitten personality."

They were drawn to the warmth and quickly staked out their favorite nook in the room. "When we turned on the heater and put a big cozy bed in front, they immediately snuggled one another and just looked so content."

The two enjoy nestling in bed together, allowing the heat to cover them like a blanket.

The father and son adore each other's company, but they also like to do their own things. They have chosen their own perching spots, and each claims different parts of the cat tree.

Marcos, the adult cat, craves attention from people and likes to be cradled and babied.

"Marcos is the chillest, most loving cat I have ever encountered."

"Morgan is a little nervous with new people but will cuddle right into your arms and loves a good chin scratch. He had a rough start, and he is going to take a little time to trust people. Once he knows who you are, he feels safe."

Marcos is as playful and rambunctious as his son, zooming through the tunnel, batting at toys, and creating a cacophony of playful sounds with his boy.

The kitten is getting more confident with his dad by his side, teaching him the ways of the world and instilling bravery.
