A stray cat took a liking to a solder who is on active duty near the city of Constanta, Romania. Ever since Justin found the little feline, the kitty has been his shadow, following him around every time he sees him.

"I picked up this kitten weeks ago and he followed me to the barracks we live, on a semi-abandoned base," Justin shared with Love Meow.

"I named him Salem."

The kitty has become quite attached to his human friend.

He will hop onto his lap for love and attention and even slip into his helmet for a cat nap.

"There is a huge problem with strays in this country. They are everywhere. This little guy just took a liking to me," Justin told Love Meow.

After a hectic day of work, Salem comes to Justin and snuggles in his lap, purring up a storm.

Salem is very affectionate towards his human buddy and gives him the comfort he needs that reminds him of home.

This little guy has stolen his human's heart.

With only a month and a half left in this country, Justin is working on getting the kitty to the vet while looking for a rescue group that could help arrange a trip to get Salem to his home in El Paso, Texas.
