Dustin DeRoche and his coworker were heading back to their cars after work on Tuesday night when, out of nowhere, a tiny kitten came running up to them. The kitten seemed so friendly and eager right off the bat, so DeRoche picked him up and started cuddling him, causing the tiny kitten to start purring immediately. The poor kitten was covered in fleas and was wheezing, and DeRoche knew there was no way he could leave him behind in that parking lot.
DeRoche decided to take the kitten, later named Chuck, home with him for the night and then to a vet the next morning. Chuck had no problem getting into the car with his new friend, and seemed content that he had finally found someone to help him.
“He slept on my lap the whole way home, a 20-minute car ride,” DeRoche told The Dodo.
