Morgan, a proud mom of five fur-babies, wasn’t planning on adopting any more children, but a little kitten that found a way into her home was about to change that. The sweet kitten’s arrival into the family was something straight out of a fairy-tale; like a little Thumbelina, Polly was found in a tree stump with no sign of her mother.

Polly’s pet-mom, Morgan, found Polly after hearing soft meows coming from somewhere on her farm. Morgan realized that there was a little kitten in need somewhere and she started searching for her, however, due to the thick vegetation on the farm, and Polly’s unusual hiding place, she initially had trouble finding her.

After searching for a long time Morgan decided to bring out one of her cats so her cat could help to find the little kitten. The big cat quickly sniffed her out.

Before bringing her in, they left the stray kitten in the spot she was found, just in case, the kitten’s mother returned while checking on her from the distance. After waiting for a few hours, they knew they had to intervene.

“When it got dark we got nervous about her because we live on a farm where foxes come around a lot,” “So I went out and brought her inside. She couldn’t see a thing and was covered in fleas.”, Morgan told Love Meow

They named the kitten Polly, got her a much-needed bath, and removed all the pesky fleas off her coat. Paxton (aka Pax), the 12-year-old resident dog, heard the kitten’s squeaks and came to check on her. The pair instantly took to each other and Polly was made to feel part of the family.

He let the scared and confused little kitty cuddle up to him, and she immediately seemed to feel safer and more relaxed.

The gentle giant immediately took to the little feline and started caring for her. The kitten was drawn to the warmth and nuzzled into his fur for comfort. She stopped crying, curled up next to him, and went right to sleep.

Pax kept Polly company while she dried up and gave her some well-needed love and support.

Since they met Pax has never left Polly’s side — they are completely inseparable.

Now, Polly follows Pax around the house like his little sidekick, and Pax is always ready to play and cuddle with her.

Morgan bottle-fed Polly for around 3-weeks until she was ready to be weaned. Whenever it was feeding time, Pax would wait patiently while watching his kitten munch down her food. Then as soon as she finished eating, he jumped right in and started the cleaning duties.

Polly was so little that she needed to be bottle-fed, and Pax would lovingly lick the little kitten clean after her messy meals.

Now, Polly is 5 months old and big enough to clean herself, but she’s still got a lot left to learn from Pax who has already entered his senior years. But Polly still follows her best friend everywhere around the house, like his little shadow.

The former stray has grown into a rambunctious kitten, full of mischief. Pax lets her play and wrestle with his tail and never gets tired of her many antics.

The love Polly and Pax share is strong and pure and is heartwarming to behold. Thanks to Pax, Polly the once, tiny orphaned kitten they found in the tree stump, has blossomed into a beautiful young cat.
