Stray Kitty Chooses His Human In A Park, Wouldn’t Let Him Go

Kawasaki Hina was going home through his local park, when a squeaking kitty ran up to him. The poor thing started following him, not letting him go. Before he knew it, Hina was carrying the tiny fluffball in a box back to his place.

“She fell asleep immediately back at my house,” Hina told Bored Panda. “She is like a family to me,” he added. “I think she also loves me. We’ll be together forever.” Now, the kitty, named Vell, is 2,5 years old. The two even do laundry together! It was love at first sight, for sure.

I had a cat do that to me one day. A half-grown tortie walked in front of me until I had to stop or step on her, then she climbed my jeans and sat on my shoulder, purring. I was on the way to the bus stop, so I put her down and literally ran away. After work, my wife and I went out to look for her, and she did the same thing to both of us. She lived with us for the next 16 years. It's a great honor to be chosen by a cat.

I 'rescued' a cat from a humane shelter for reasons that still boggle my mind! It was a YOWLER - one could literally hear her more than a block away. When I entered the area she was in, the sound was deafening - but she was a beauty of a Siamese, about four years old or so. From the second I brought her the house and until she passed at 24, she never uttered one more meow - EXCEPT when I moved to another country and had her flown up after I was settled, and when I approached the cargo shed at the airport, again she could heard for a mile or more!! (It was a huge 'empty' metal building so the yowling was amplified to no small degree.) Never again. Ah, how we fall in love with the four-legged so hugely and yet have 'issues' with the two-legged variety of animals...

Whenever I adopt an animal, I go to the shelter and let them choose me. They are much wiser in that way and always make the right choice. :3

I truly believe that animals sometimes "do" choose their human. I went to a pet store once to pick up some bird seed, only to have this tiny chocolate colored lop eared bunny scratching at the glass in its cage to get to me. I pick him up, and he fell asleep in the crook of my arm. 300+ later, I was walking out with a tiny lop eared bunny, cage and all of the supplies. Best pet I ever had

Beautiful kitty, and anyone wearing blue and red opposing shoelaces has got to have a kind heart. I think the kitten knew she had a winner when approaching those shoes. lol
