Kitten Meows Himself Hoarse Until Help Arrives, He Has a Heart-shaped Belly Patch and So Much to Give

An orphaned kitten meowed himself hoarse until help arrived. With a heart-shaped patch on his belly and boundless love to give, he’s ready to melt everyone’s heart.


Last month, a tiny 3-week-old kitten was found alone outside, separated from his mother and siblings. His desperate cries caught the attention of a Good Samaritan who rushed to his rescue.

The kitten had “cried himself hoarse,” searching for his mom. After receiving much-needed care at an emergency vet clinic, a volunteer from Best Friends Felines, a cat rescue, welcomed the little one into their home, giving him a fresh start.

The kitten was extremely distressed until he nestled into his carer’s arms. Though his voice was croaky from all the crying, his spirit remained full of hope.


He refused to be left alone, screaming his little heart out until he was cuddled. Seeing his need for constant companionship, they decided to place him with a few older kittens, providing him with the comfort and friendship he longed for.

A week earlier, a concerned passerby stumbled upon three kittens left behind after their stray mother cat ran off and never returned. They were taken to Best Friends Felines for a chance at a better life.

Named after characters from Avatar, Aang, Katara, and Sokka finally experienced the comfort of a warm bed and full bellies, feeling content and safe.

Days later, the trio noticed a new addition to their playpen – Zuko, the tiny black-and-white kitten. Despite being three weeks older, they took him under their wing, grooming his little face and snuggling him as if he were one of their own.


“[They] licked and cuddled him to let him know he was safe, and Zuko finally stopped crying.”

Zuko quickly grew attached to his new feline siblings, trailing them everywhere and constantly wanting to be near them. While the trio mastered the litter box, learned to eat from a dish, and honed their feline skills, Zuko eagerly tagged along, never missing a chance to mimic their every move.

They romped around their playpen, pouncing and wrestling until they collapsed into a cozy pile. The older kittens curled protectively around their little brother, smothering him with love.

With three kittens as his constant companions, Zuko began to grow and flourish, allowing his endearing personality to shine.

“Zuko continues to be the most adorable little brother, grunting and croaking for food and reclining like a tiny prince on a heated pad after each feed. All he wants is love and affection.”

He has so much love to give, perfectly symbolized by the heart-shaped marking on his belly. “He really is the sweetest little kitty.”


With proper care, nutritious food, and an abundance of love, these kittens have blossomed into boisterous bundles of energy. Zuko, the youngest of the bunch, holds his own when tumbling with his bigger playmates.

“They went through something pretty big, losing their respective mamas so young, needing to adapt to bottles, syringes, etc., but they have been safe and warm and loved; they’ve had each other too.”

He loves attention and playBestFriendsFelines

“They are so trusting and sweet and adore the people that have fed and cleaned them.”

Zuko excitedly runs to greet his foster carer every time they enter the room, offering the sweetest welcome. No longer crying for attention, he joyfully dashes around, charming everyone with his irresistible personality.


“He is an incredible, gentle darling. He’s been a dream kitten, eating well, cuddly, loud purrs, and trots at your heels. He adores humans and seeks them out, but it’s not the same as having a constant companion.”

Zuko is overjoyed to have three playful feline friends to keep him company and loving humans who ensure he will be spoiled and cherished endlessly.
