Mews and Nips: Tortie Kitten Loves Formerly Feral Cat


You may have already heard of Grandpa Mason, the formerly feral cat with kidney disease who fell in love with a group of foster kittens after he was taken in by a rescuer. He turned out into a wonderful foster granddad. His most recent admirer is a tiny tortie kitten with a cleft palate. LoveMeow reports that while Aura loves to give all the kittens baths and snuggles, Grandpa Mason is her favorite, and the two can be seen snuggling together, with Aura nursing Mason’s ear. For more about Aura and adorable photos, please visit

    I follow Aura and Grampa Mason on Tinykittens YouTube page and Grampa Mason has been a good surrogate grandpa to the kittens that come to Tinykittens. Shelly Roche does an amazing job!!

    Grandpa Mason reminds me a lot of my cat Bootsie. She’s a former feral too! We have two other cats, and she loves to snuggle with and groom them.

    The kittens seem to be looking after Grandpa more than the other way round! 🙂

    I have been following TinyKittens Rescue for a while now and was so excited when I saw the change in Grandpa Mason. I think all he needed was to be shown some love and he totally changed. I love how sweet he is with the kittens.
