Mews and Nips: Two Rescued Kittens Become Best Friends

kittens-rescued-best-friends

Two kittens rescued separately ended up at the same shelter in New York, and became best friends when Jess Thoren, a fosterer from KittenBnB in New Jersey, took them home. Jess had come to the shelter to rescue another litter of kittens and just knew she had to take little Frankie home as well. Two weeks younger than the other kittens, he quickly became a part of the family, but became particularly close to Dracula, a little black kitten. For more about Frankie and his friends, visit LoveMeow.com.

Today’s video cracked me up. Visionary artist Jonathan created a short film after putting a camera on his model train to film the miniature town he created. In the process, he captured his cat Mittens wandering about, creating a vision of a world in which giant cats roam. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!
