You’ve probably heard the phrase “real men loves cats” before and in this instance we absolutely love it. Meet Bagheera!
Ray Vargas was a self confessed dog lover until one night destiny came in the sound of a little kitten meowing outside his bedroom window. Upon investigation he discovered what was a tiny kitten whose eyes were still closed.
“I found him on a rainy night, abandoned on the roof of the shed in my backyard. Just followed his meowing.”
The abandoned kitten appeared to be crying for his mother but she was nowhere to be found, Ray knew he had to help or the poor little guy wouldn’t have a fighting chance. “This little orphan did not appreciate being left out in the rain so I picked up a kitten feeder kit complete with formula and bottle.”
Ray brought the kitty in, warmed him up and fed him regularly throughout the night. Soon after, the little guy started eating more and Ray’s care started to pay off.
Vargas named him Bagheera and this is him with his eyes fully opened taking his first real look at the world.
He began to follow Ray around the house and quickly learned how to climb up onto his shoulder.
As he grew he realized his favorite place for a naps was in the arms of the man that saved him.
Ray is an artist and has discovered working from home is not so easy with a cat around! Here he is offering a helping paw.
“I had no idea that bringing in an abandoned newborn out of the rain that night would lead this avowed dog person to own my very first pet, a cat no less,” states Ray. “Best decision I ever made.” We’ll have to agree with you on that one Ray!
