Aragon, an adopted dog, was being taken for a walk by a mountain near Athens when he spotted a box of ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ kittens. His mom took them home to raise until they’re old enough to find families of their own, and Aragon has been a wonderful foster papa to them. In their area, as well as other areas of Gʀᴇᴇᴄᴇ, it has become common for people to dump litters of kittens. The poor kittens are defenceless against ᴘʀᴇᴅᴀᴛᴏʀs and do not sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇ long in the ᴡɪʟᴅ, which is why the boxes tend to be empty.
Aragon’s mom is a volunteer at the animal charity, and she decided to make a video to expose how many ʜᴇʟᴘʟᴇss animals have been ᴍᴇʀᴄɪʟᴇssʟʏ ᴅᴜᴍᴘᴇᴅ up on the mountain. They said: “Almost every day [Aragon’s mom] finds empty cardboard boxes on the mountain (sometimes with the blankets and the toys still inside), but no animals.” So, one day, Aragon’s mom brought her camera with her on their walk in order to get some footage for her video. Since ᴡɪʟᴅ animals usually get a hold of the ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ kittens within just a few hours, Aragon and his mom were only expecting to get a few shots of the many boxes that constantly litter the site.
But then, something incredible happened. Aragon started pulling his mom towards a box and when they looked inside, they found an entire litter of kittens. Against all odds, they had sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇᴅ long enough to be discovered and saved. They took the litter home, and Aragon immediately took on the role as foster father. He’d ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ the sweet little babies, and now he was going to make sure that they had everything they needed.
The kittens got checked out by a ᴠᴇᴛ and the good people of SCARS took care of their every need, but nobody was as lovingly invested in the wellbeing of the little kittens as Aragon. They may not have been his biological children, but there was no doubt that they were his children at ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ. He played with them, cuddled with them and gave them all the love and attention little kittens need from their daddy. Thanks to Aragon’s skilled nose and big ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ, the kittens got a second shot of life. The kittens thrived under the care of SCARS and Aragon made sure they had all the love and care they deserved. He made them feel loved and safe when they needed it the most, and we’re sure they’ll remember that for the rest of their lives.
