Stray Kitten Shows Up to Play Ball with a Couple – And Won’t Let Them Go.

A little stray kitten showed up in a yard all by himself. A kind couple heard his cries, took him in and gave him a tennis ball to play.

Meet little Circo!

Six months ago, a ginger and white kitten wandered to a neighbor’s yard in Kalamata (southern Greece), meowing for food. Vassiliki and her family heard the kitten’s cry and brought him something to eat.

“We took him to my parents’ house because he left the neighbor’s yard and was heading to the highway,” Vassiliki told Love Meow. “We asked the neighbors and they had no problem that we took him with us.”

The kitten was very playful. The only toy they could find was a tennis ball.

Two days later, Vassiliki and her husband were going back home to Athens. They decided to take the kitten along so he could have a forever home with them.

“From the first minute Circo was very loving and friendly with us. He would come running every time he saw us,” Vassiliki told Love Meow.

The kitten adjusted to living indoors very quickly. He craved attention and love from his humans.

Circo became very attached to the couple and followed them around the house.

Vassiliki found herself sitting more often with a purring kitty in her lap.
