Black cats have it pretty tough when it comes to finding their forever homes. For some reason, many humans believe they are bad luck and will avoid them.
This sweet black kitten is no exception. She was spotted by a man on a busy road, just in the nick of time, when she ran under his car.
Afterward, the man posted about the little stray on a local Facebook group. That's when Holly Brookhouser stepped in.
Holly is well-known in Arkansas for her work in rescuing and fostering stray animals. On this particular day, it was the second anniversary for Holly's adopted son, Marcelo.
Holly took the tiny kitten to get all her vet work done and be prepped to find her forever family. The story only gets better from there.
Holly has been involved in animal rescue since 2010. She says she understands the importance of not becoming too attached to each animal.
"I'm a stay at home mom to a 15-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son. We have three dogs, three cats, one rabbit, and one hedgehog - all rescued," she said.
"Over the last ten years, I've fostered well over 100 dogs, cats, and kittens. While I've had many fosters come through who I felt strongly attached to, I knew they had the ability to bond to an adopter."
"If I keep all the best and the cutest, I'd have no room to rescue more. Fostering and helping pets on their journey to forever love is far too important to me, so I love and let go so that I can continue saving more."
