These two rescued kitties came from separate paths. They were brought together one day and formed an instant bond.

Cheltenham Cat Rescue

Kayleigh the kitten was just a few weeks old when she was rescued by Cheltenham Cat Rescue in Melbourne, Australia. The little singleton didn't want to be alone so on Christmas Eve last year, they found her a buddy.

Jaxson the cat was brought to the rescue for a chance at a better life. He was a love-bug from the start and couldn't get enough attention and belly rubs. When they paired him up with Kayleigh who was a few months his junior, they immediately took to each other and started snuggling.

Kayleigh the rambunctious ginger melted when Jaxson doted on her with licks and cuddles. He quickly took on the role as her big brother, giving her mandatory baths and watching over her every step of the way.

"Being smaller than Jaxson, Kayleigh has figured out she can sneak up on him when he's not looking and start a chasey game with him," Cheltenham Cat Rescue said.

"She can certainly hold her own with someone three times her size."

"Jaxson plays the big brother to Kayleigh and they have formed a very strong bond. Both have very individual personalities with Jaxson being the more gentle and good natured boy and Kayleigh being the independent and more determined girl."

After scampering around the house, playing and wrestling, the two best friends will snuggle up together for a nap before their next adventure.

"When it comes to settling down at night or even during the day for a snooze, you will find them cuddling up together and often him grooming her."

Kayleigh looks up to her big brother who is very protective of her. She will seek him out when he is not around and curl up next to him when she naps.

Knowing how bonded they are, the rescue hopes to find them a loving home together.
