There's one little abandoned tuxedo kitten from an New Zealand cemetery that has quite the online following now. Musician (and famed feline friend) Ryan Adams found the cat while taking a night stroll to avoid jet lag on Monday (July 13), and alerted the Internet: "Please any local cat rescue in Auckland, there's a little black kitten Symonds & Grafton- in Cemetery. Abandoned," he wrote on Twitter.
Soon enough, a guy named Rob came through, preparing to get the tiny nugget. All the while, I'm biting my nails as I watch it all go down on my phone this morning (there's a 12-hour time difference between us).
The search unfolded right in front of our eyes as Adams gave step-by-step instructions on how to find the kitten.
And everyone was like, um, Ryan, why were in a cemetery at night?
And guess what? Rob found her!
So he put some treats in a box so the kitty will get in. The suspense!
But nope. Some possums scare her away. Rob gets some backup and now there's a hashtag for the fluffball.
As with all cats, it takes a long time to gain their trust.
To be continued...
Hopefully, Rob finds the kitty, but to many of us, he's already a hero.
