A litter of 3-week-old kittens were surrendered to the in-house rescue centre at Wilson Veterinary Hospital, and worker Sara Budzynowski soon fell in love with one of them, who unfortunately had to have his tail amputated due to an infection.
All the other kittens were completely healthy, but this one lost it’s tail and required extra care for a while. And it didn’t take long before Budzynowski was totally smitten with the kitten.
She told The Dodo:
“About a week after he got that part of his tail amputated, I took him home to foster him and the rest was history,”
Budzynowski and her fiancé named him Renly, and they soon started spoiling him, giving him a little stuffed bunny and a soft blanket to cuddle up to.
Renly is a little older now, at 10 months old, but he is still so attached to his blanket that he carries it with him wherever he goes.
“He always loved his blanket from the day we took him home and usually carries it around his room to where he wants to sleep with it,” Budzynowski said.
Renly now shares the attention of his loving owners with two new corgis named Hotchner and Azula, and he plays the role of the big brother with a heart of gold, happy to share his blanket with his siblings from time to time.
“Hotchner and Renly sleep in the same room and sometimes when we come home from work to let them out, we see that Renly will put his blanket next to Hotch’s crate and Hotch will try to pull it inside the crate with him, so it’s like Renly is trying to share it with him too,”
His foster parents are surprised to see him so attached to the blanket even to this day, and believe that he cherishes it as it was given to him by his new parents. It symbolizes the day he got adopted so he loves to hang on to it. Budzynowski says that she’ll never replace it and intends to keep it for the rest of his life.
And if the blanket is ever in the wash then there’s always the bunny to keep him happy for a while!
