On a rainy night in January, a cat named Atlas was meowing and crying at the door inside his house in Hawaii. The cat’s owner, Sam Christie, figured that a stray animal was around — this is what Atlas did whenever he sensed another cat.
“It was super rainy and the roads were flooding a little bit,” Christie told The Dodo. “I thought I heard a kitten meowing outside, so I put on some shoes and got a flashlight, and I crossed the street and started looking.”
It turns out, Atlas had been right. In a field of thick, tall grass, Christie found a tiny, sopping wet kitten, who was only about 7 weeks old.
