When Komari the 5-week-old kitten was found abandoned, cold, and alone, she was in desperate need of a family to care for her. Her rescuers wanted to offer one to her, but they weren’t sure how she would fit in with the other house occupants: five ferrets.

They soon realized that it was a match made in heaven.

This is Komari shortly after she was rescued. She’s tiny enough to fit in the palm of your hand.

In fact, it’s pretty clear that Komari now thinks she’s a ferret, too.

Soon enough, “little sister” became a bit of a misnomer.

Still, her big brothers remained protective of her.

They never let her too far out of sight.

From day one, Komari decided she didn’t need her own bed when she had this one.
