Davy was just a tiny kitten when he and his big brother, Goliath, moved in with us. He was the only survivor in his litter of kittens. And with their mother gone, too, Goliath moved right in and became Mr. Mom to his tiny baby brother. A woman in Baltimore found them together in her backyard and watched as Goliath nurtured and cared for Davy. But she was ill and couldn't keep them. Over the months, we watched Davy grow from kitten to teenager to energetic young cat. We rarely have kittens in our group home, and all of us loved watching him grow up under Goliath's watchful eye. Because Goliath was too shy to live comfortably in a home, they went to live in a barn with an older cat, miniature horses, a couple of cat-friendly dogs and people who adore them.
