Imagine returning home from a long trip, and as you step onto your front steps, you’re greeted by the sight of a tiny kitten. For any cat lover, that’s the purrfect gift, isn’t it?
This heartwarming scenario became a reality for Claudia Louise Fain, a performer from Florida.
After a tiring day of travel, she arrived home to find an irresistible surprise waiting on her front steps – a tiny tuxedo kitten.
Claudia couldn’t contain her joy as she recalled the moment:
“My mouth just dropped open. I was thinking, ‘I want you.’”
She couldn’t resist the kitten’s cuteness and simply had to take her in. First, she looked and asked around the neighborhood, but no one had seen any other cats in the area.
With no other options in sight, Claudia happily embraced her newfound feline friend.

However, there was a tiny problem in Claudia’s plan – she already had a cat at home, and Kitty wasn’t too thrilled about the new addition. Claudia humorously described the situation, saying:
“My cat’s freaking out because I haven’t been here, she’s missed me. And so now, I have this little thing, and so I’m trying to negotiate everything.”
With great care, Claudia introduced the little kitten to her new environment, ensuring she had space to explore and feel secure. Surprisingly, the adjustment was swift.
The kitten wasted no time in adapting to her cozy new life, exploring everything around her and becoming Claudia’s faithful shadow. Claudia said:
“When I lay down, she just immediately suckles on my neck. I love it, it’s worth it. She’s a sweet thing.”
Although Kitty wasn’t initially thrilled with the new family member, a bit of time did wonders. Claudia happily reported:
“Now, it’s really great, because I wake up in the morning, and they’re both on top of me.”
It seems that Claudia’s skills as a performer extend to making her feline companions feel right at home.
Claudia firmly believes that her meeting with Gigi, the little kitten, was destined to be. She expressed her gratitude, saying:
“It’s like she chose me. She was waiting on the steps for me to rescue her.”
Adopting and providing a loving home to a cat in need is a wonderful act of kindness. However, when a stray cat chooses you, it’s a truly remarkable connection.
