Found abandoned as terrified kittens days apart last December, Buddy and Gabriel have never known what it’s like to spend Christmas in a loving home.
The two tiny friends were found wandering around alone and scared in a garden centre car park in the weeks leading up to the festive period – it’s likely that they were dumped there together.
Buddy, who was found first and particularly nervous, was about two months old, and Gabriel, who was covered in ticks when he arrived, was about four months old.
As Buddy was so petrified and probably knew Gabriel, who was far more confident than him, the two kittens were paired up and have been inseparable ever since.
They spent their first Christmas without a family at our rehoming centre in Kimpton, Hertfordshire – but this year will be far different for the two pals.
Four days after December 25 last year, they went home with new owner Sarah Bartlett and her family.
They had spotted the adorable duo on the Blue Cross website over the festive period and knew that they could give them the loving home they so very deserved – and, crucially, could keep them together.
