Imagine two cats bringing two people closer together… cute right?!
There are many coincidence when you first start dating. Some people find out that they were born in the same hospital, or that they were actually classmates in nursery or even that they had an operation on the same day.
Brian Herrera and Cathleen Cavin both live in California’s Bay Area, and they were born just two months apart in the same hospital. That’s a coincidence for sure, as is the fact that they’ve both lived in the same cities and attended some of the same concerts. But all those coincidences combined don’t measure up to the one they discovered on their first date in the summer of 2016.
In 2014, Cathleen and her daughter, Cali had wanted to adopted two ginger cats, which were brothers. Their dreams of adopting the two cats were shattered when their landlord only agreed to letting them get one cat. They adopted the kitten and called him Ozzie. The first couple of weeks were really tough. Ozzie would just cry. Little Cali was convinced it was because they took him away from his brother.
“I made a really stupid promise,” Cathleen admits. “I told my daughter I would look for the cat and try to find his brother. I kept saying, ‘I’m going to find him.”
In 2015, when Cathleen, a single mom, and Brian Herrera, a single dad, met on Tinder. She wasn’t especially interested in the beginning, and more than a year went by before they had their first date, in June 2016. After dinner, they went back to his place, and there, out of the corner of her eye, Cathleen spotted an eerily familiar face. A ginger-and-white face with long, white whiskers and sultry, yellow eyes.
Rather than introducing the cats straight away they got to know each other some more before finally introducing them on Valentine’s day, 2017. Shortly after, Cathleen and Cali moved into Brain’s home where he lives with his young daughter. Not only did both the cats get reunited, Cali also got a sister.
