Brokenhearted Bachelor Finds Sick Kitten Outside His Door, Together They Rescued Each Other

There's not much that can ease the pain of a broken heart, just time and maybe the love of an adorable kitten.

A man who only wants to be identified as MK was feeling very emotional after a recent breakup. He was sitting in his apartment crying his eyes out when something inside told him to get up and go do laundry.

That's when he found a very sick little kitten - his eyes were closed because they were full of pus - sitting outside his door. The cat ran inside to get out of the heat, and that chance meeting brought MK and his new pet together.

He gave the cat some water, and chewed up leftover fajita meat so the kitten could have something to eat. The cat's name, Fajita, comes from their first meal together.

We've seen heartwarming stories like this before, but none are as cute as the adorable bond that Fajita and his new owner share.

Next, MK had to take the very sick little cat to the vet - and fast.

Find out how MK and Fajita are doing!

Fajita must have known he was in good hands, because he let himself be corralled into a pet-carrier and taken to a vet.

Fajita looks much happier after a little TLCMK

The stray cat had a respiratory infection, conjunctivitis, and hadn't been eating well. On the way back from his checkup, MK asked the poor thing if he wanted to be his new pet.

The little cat meowed right back, and MK "broke into tears."

"I was feeling so alone and lost after the breakup," he revealed to Love Meow, "his little meow filled my heart with love again."

It's not everyday that a cat manages to rescue his owner, but little Fajita seems to have the magic touch and his owner is feeling much better.

Now - as you can see - Fajita is happy and healthy in his new home, and these two lonely guys have each other.
