Kittens maintain one another by means of thick and skinny and thrive as an inseparable duo

Two kittens have gone through fat and thin together since they were born and grew together into the cutest couple.

A litter of seven newborn kittens came to one cat at a time (a kitten rescue in Quebec, Canada) after they were found in critical condition.

They were extremely fragile and small, and despite their best efforts to save them all, the two cream torties were the only ones that made it.

The cat sisters Charlotte and Victoria showed an incredible warrior spirit from day one. "They were the strongest kittens in their litter. Charlotte meowed until she got her bottle. She purred and made muffins (kneading), even at the age of 24 hours," said Marie Simard, founder of "One Cat at a Time" Love meow.

"Victoria is a wonder kitten. The vet didn't think she would make it, but after days of care with little sleep and lots of worry and stress she finally perked up."

The sisters climbed the first hurdle and gained weight and strength.

At around four weeks they faced another difficult challenge. They became very ill with feline panleucopenia, a highly infectious viral disease affecting cats. Infected kittens younger than eight weeks of age are unlikely to recover.

Despite all odds, Marie was determined to do everything possible to save her.

She followed a strict protocol and took critical care of the kittens around the clock. Given their age and condition, the vet gave a grim diagnosis with less than a 5% chance of survival. The kittens never showed signs of giving up and kept fighting for life.

During this time, the two were often seen wrapping their arms around each other while purring incessantly, which provided the much-needed comfort to keep each other going.

"With a lot of love and care, they survived and became the most playful and loving kittens," Marie told Love Meow.

It was nothing short of a miracle when the kittens rebounded after their illness. Their resilience and solidarity drove them to victory. Her wild, playful side soon emerged and came in in full swing.

As soon as they had enough strength in their little legs, the sisters planned an escapade out of their playpen so that they could explore the whole house together.

After their unexpected excursion, they curled up side by side on their human's lap as they refilled for the next round of calamity.

The Tortie Girls have turned into some serious love bugs. Whenever Marie is around, they happily dance to her and crawl on her lap for a long cuddle session.

"They are very loving and love to sleep on us. They are very connected. I am sure it has to do with the fact that they get through the disease and survive together," shared Marie Love Meow.

"They always play and sleep in pairs and purr all the time. They are never apart."

The two best friends are almost ready to find their home forever. They are a package and cannot be separated.

During that trip, Marie's 9-year-old daughter was the kittens greatest cheerleader.

As soon as the sisters were out of the forest, she offered herself as their intended cuddle friend and showered them with love.

The little fighters have grown into the happiest and cuddliest kittens. They like to snuggle up on their foster mother's shoulders while she works and keep company with the housework.

"It was the toughest rescue I've ever done. Charlotte and Victoria are survivors. They are the most loving and playful kittens I've ever had," said Marie.
