A Father and Son’s Camping Trip Leads to the Rescue of an Entire Feline Family
Going on a camping trip with his child is one of Michael Shinkle’s favorite things to do. Their go-to spot is a secluded little hideout that’s far away from civilization, but their last trip there was quite different. They stumbled upon some unexpected company during their stay.
Upon their arrival at the campsite, Shinkle and his son spotted a lone cat wandering around in the woods. The poor thing was emaciated, leading Shinkle to suspect it had been abandoned. While setting up their camp, Shinkle’s son began to befriend the adorable feline, and Shinkle had a feeling they would be taking her home with them once their camping vacation was over.
The father and son duo had limited provisions for their camping trip, but they didn’t hesitate to share with their feline companion. While dining in their tent, the cat roamed around, already attached to her new companions. When it was time for dinner, the generous pair offered the cat all of their remaining food.
In no time, Shinkle had to retire to his tent. However, his slumber was short-lived as he heard some strange noises outside. To satisfy his curiosity, he took out his phone and shone the light around. He was surprised to find eight pairs of eyes staring back at him. As it turned out, the new feline friend they had made earlier was actually a mother to three adorable kittens.
Shinkle and his son wrapped up their camping trip with a delightful addition to their family – four cute little kittens. The stray cat they had come across during their vacation would not leave their side, so they decided to bring her along as well. Shinkle expressed his contentment on his GoFundMe page for the new feline family, saying how happy and friendly the cat was. He added that it was evident that she was a domesticated cat because of her affectionate nature and constant need for cuddles.
Shinkle and his family made the heartwarming decision to welcome all four cats into their home and give them the love and care they deserve. Thanks to their camping trip, the mother cat and her kittens were saved and have found their forever home. The family is thrilled to have these furry companions with them and are cherishing every moment of their new life together.
