Sylvester had a hard time adjusting when he initially moved into his foster family. The timid kitten had no idea who or what to believe. But all changed when he met Cooper, the family’s pug.
Sylvester clung to Cooper right away, seeking solace and consolation in him. Cooper and I grew close since we experienced the same worries.
They are now inseparable.
“Sylvester was curious about Cooper from the beginning,” Jacky and Yeshi, Sylvester’s foster parents, told The Dodo. “Cooper, despite being much bigger, was so confused and not sure. For the first couple of days, Sylvester kept trying to get his attention, but it stressed Cooper out.”
Eventually, Sylvester won Cooper over. Now, they both play, run around and spoon each other every chance they get.
“Sylvester and Cooper are inseparable,” Jacky and Yeshi said. “They spend all day long glued together. Sylvester waits for Cooper at the door when he goes out for his walks. He also waits for him after his bath and joins him in the tub once we drain the water.”

It was a fast friendship from the start, but Sylvester didn’t always have a buddy like Cooper to watch out for him. When Little Wanderers NYC rescuer Mashaal Memom discovered Sylvester’s mom, a stray cat named Tweety who had babies, it took her three weeks to locate them.
But shy little Sylvester blossomed into a lovebug with a little TLC. Putting Sylvester with Cooper reinforced the kitten’s big heart. And, while neither Sylvester nor Cooper are up for adoption, and Sylvester’s mom and sister are looking for their forever homes.
According to Lisa Scroggins, cofounder of Little Wanderers NYC, “Daffy is intrigued with people.” While shy, their mother, a kitten herself, is also up for adoption and is sweet and timid like her son, Sylvester.
The rescuers are thrilled that Sylvester made a buddy in Cooper and hope that the rest of his family will one day experience the same type of affection.
