Last month when a woman went grocery shopping at the neighborhood store, she was astounded to see a tiny abandoned cat grinning at her from one of the aisles.
On one of the hangers, Annie Rahe walked over to inspect the Christmas decorations that had already been put up. She decided to buy from her while she was driving her cart, and the remainder of the afternoon took a completely unexpected, adorable, and emotional turn.
Annie didn’t think twice about asking one of the grocery supervisors who owned the pussycat. She struggled to understand why they had just left him there, to her destiny, when he was so adorable and little.
Considering what the woman said:
He told me that the cat was still creeping into the business and lurking beneath the floorboards after being abandoned in the parking lot. I’m not sure how long he remained there, but the worker informed me that others had attempted to get him to go but were unsuccessful.
The woman, who also happens to be an animal rescuer and lover, felt that she had no choice but to take action. She immediately put her cart down and went to the pet section to get a can of cat food.
“The idea of him being alone himself broke my heart since he was so little and filthy. I wouldn’t be leaving without him, “said Annie.
The kitty rushed over and immediately began devouring the food can once he placed it on the ground. The kitten was diverted by the food long enough for Annie to scoop him up. In order to carry Wally—the pussycat she named—until she could return to the pet section and buy a baby carrier, she grabbed an empty box and used another thin piece of cardboard as a cover.
He said, “I had to grab him twice because at first he came out of the box and out of my cart. I spent 45 to 50 minutes trying to earn his confidence. “The situation descended into chaos.”

On her TikTok account, the woman posted about the kitten’s strange grocery find and her touching rescue.
Since then, he has racked up millions of internet likes and comments from those moved by his deed:
