When Sarah Chelskea and Crystal Mackey went to trap kittens at a cat colony, a stray cat decided to walk into a trap, begging them to take him along with the kittens he befriended.

“This gorgeous boy was caught in a colony when some of our friends went to trap kittens,” Jenny Storaker of CatRescue 901 shares with Love Meow. “He is incredibly cat friendly and was looking after kittens.”

The friendly stray followed the rescuers of CatRescue 901 (in Terrey Hills, New South Wales, Australia) very closely from the moment they arrived.

As soon as they got the kittens out of the trap into a carrier, Ali just sauntered into the empty trap, sat down, and looked up at the rescuers as if he was telling them to take him with too.

“We were standing literally one meter away from the trap debating whether to wait for him and then he went in,” Crystal told Love Meow.

Ali is a very loving and nurturing cat. He appeared in the cat colony one day and started caring for the kitties there.

“He looked after 6 kittens total and 2 mama cats,” Crystal said.

Ali is FIV+ but is healthy and extremely lovey. FIV+ (feline immunodeficiency virus, which causes a weakening of the cat’s immune system) cats can live a long and happy life. The disease is only transmitted to other cats from deep puncture wounds. Since Ali is very gentle with other cats, he could most likely live with non FIV+ safely.

“Latest research out now agrees gentle FIV cats can live with other cats,” Jenny said.

These are some of the babies Ali looked after in the cat colony.

CatRescue 901 has taken them into their care and is getting the kitties and their mamas ready for their forever loving homes.

Since Ali came to the shelter, he hasn’t stop purring and giving snuggles to his caregivers.

CatRescue 901 reached out to social media, hoping to find the sweet boy a home he so deserves. That’s when a couple, Kaycie and her husband, saw Ali, and they were smitten with that adorable little face.

Ali went home with his forever humans yesterday. “I went and visited him this morning to give him some toys and a fluffy new bed. He is adorable,” Sarah told Love Meow.

The sweet little guy has been giving others love, and now he’s found a family that will love him forever.

Updates:

“He (now named Chuffy) is a perfect fit for our little family. This little guy brings so much joy to our lives! When he first arrived, much to my surprise, he adjusted rather quickly,” Kaycie told Love Meow.

“If he wasn’t formally diagnosed with FIV you would never know he had it. Chuffy is, in every sense, a very normal kitty.”

“To say Chuffy is spoiled is the understatement of the century! And he deserves every bit!”

“He gets all the pats and snuggles he cares to have and, MY OH MY, he LOVES his attention! He loves to dive and tunnel into the sofa cushions, so much so that my sofa pillows are arranged into a permanent pillow fort!”

Kaycie Jarrett

Chuffy has incredible patience and is a very gentle kitty.

“He is fantastic with my stepdaughter Chloe and is a trooper for tea parties and kisses,” Kaycie said.
