Camping is a father-son-experience that has almost been relegated to the past but not for Michael Shinkle and his son. They’ve always had an affinity towards camping and regularly frequent the same sequestered spot, but on their most recent adventure, they had company!
Discovering a lone cat roaming the woods, they realised how skinny it was, and both put two-and-two-together and figured she was abandoned. Setting up camp, the cat just wouldn’t leave their side, and Michael’s son took a strong liking to the kitty as she cosied up to him by the fire.
Not short on food, the generous duo gave the stranded animal many helpings having been followed into their tent by it when eating their dinner.
As the night wore on, Michael and his son retreated to their tent to catch some much-needed sleep, but later in the evening, things got interesting.
Being alerted to loud rustling and meowing outside, Michael shined his phone light outside and was startled to find eight pairs of beaming eyes staring back at him.
Yes, their new friend was actually a mom to three adorable kittens!
Having already decided to take the stray home, Shinkle thought it only fair they take the kittens back as well, and he and his son returned home with four new furry friends! As you can see in the photo below, they are utterly adorable!
On behalf of everyone at Rock My Time, we wish the Shinkle family and their new additions nothing but the best.
