“The cat chooses the human, Mr. Potter,” is almost a quote from the first Harry Potter movie, and it turns out that it’s very true. A Reddit user by the name of Thistlefizz was sitting in his yard with his son one day when a tiny little furball came bounding out of the woods and sat right on his lap. The kitten knew that she was just too cute to resist.
Thistlefizz was concerned, thinking that a feral cat den or a mother might be nearby. So, even though his wife was concerned, he left the kitten outside for a while to see if a mother would come by. But the kitten waited right outside the back door. That’s when they took a trip to the vet for a check up and supplies and gave the kitten what she demanded–a forever home.
The family believes the kitten’s mother was a cat they used to see around the neighborhood who had similar markings, but was hit by a car earlier that week. They named the kitten Auri, and she’s a part of the family that she chose now. When you are chosen by a cat, you are owned by a cat.
