Woman Adopts A Shelter Kitten And Realizes He’s Totally Covered In Hearts

Katie Duda was mourning the sudden loss of her cat Lucky when she came across a photo of two kittens needing a home at Wrenn Rescues. When Duda picked up River and his brother from their foster family, she could tell there was something special about him. 
“I thought I noticed a big heart on his chest when I picked them up from the foster home, but I wasn’t sure,” Duda told The Dodo. “I really didn’t even play with them or look closely. I put my faith in Wrenn Rescues.”

At home, River was shy and wanted to hide, so Duda made him a cozy spot where he could have all the space he needed. As River became more comfortable with his new family, Duda started noticing more heart-shaped spots on his coat.
“I confirmed [one on] his chest, noticed his nose was more heart-shaped than most cats, then under his paws, chin and more,” Duda said. “To date, we’ve found seven complete hearts and two spots that look heartish at times.”

Not only is the kitten covered in hearts, but he’s also full of love.
“River is an old soul,” Duda said. “He’s calm, attentive and loving. My children have been able to gently grieve and heal with River and Remi by their side.” 
“I expected the kittens to bring us joy, but truly they’ve brought us peace,” she added. “River, covered in hearts, is mending broken hearts.”
