When a man who was out walking his dog was approached by a homeless kitten, he stopped to pet it. And the little kitten seemed to enjoy the attention, too. Little did the man know, however, just where this show of compassion would lead him.
Jon Nienaber and his wife Leslie reside in Cleveland, Ohio. The couple are animal lovers and share their home with three cats and a dog. And with these four animal companions, they believed that they’d completed their furry family.
The pair know that with a great number of pets comes a great number of responsibilities. For example, the need to regularly walk their dog. And it was on one of these walks, in summer 2016, that something unexpected happened to Jon. Yes, although he’d no doubt walked the canine hundreds of times, this particular outing would live with Jon forever.
