Cats often come better in pairs or a pack.

One man recently discovered this in the best possible way...

Instagram user Missenell is the proud owner of his 2 beautiful cats, Nelly - a Birman/Ragdoll - and Gilbert - a Bengal.

Gilbert, who lives in Denmark, enjoys regular walks with his owners...

Which is what many cats enjoy to do who don't feel entirely safe venturing outside alone.

Last year, Gilbert was out on his daily stroll when he and his owner stumbled across something unusual...

An abandoned little kitten.

The kitten was spotted hiding under a bush...

"When we tried to look under the bush, she ran and found another place to hide," Missenell told Love Meow.

But thanks to Gilbert's persistence...

The little kitten eventually came around and she was taken home with Missenell.

Initially, she was extremely cautious of people...

"She was extremely shy. If I was too close she would run away or hiss at me," her new owner explained.

Initially, they wanted to rehome the little kitten...

But Nelly and Gilbert had other ideas.

She instantly connected with her new siblings...

They gave her a quiet room and slowly introduced her to Nelly. The kitten became very curious with all the new scents, began to explore and even purr. If she made a sound, Gilbert would come running to her aid like a perfect big brother.

And fast-forward a few weeks...

The trio was completely inseparable and Missenell knew that he couldn't split them up... so he decided to keep the kitten, who was later named Nala.

The 3 cats quickly became one happy family...

"Gilbert likes to protect Nala and teach her how to be a cat," Missenell said.

Nala has come a long way since she was first rescued...

She is now much more comfortable around humans and her personality is truly shining through.

She is a completely different cat.

"She is one of the most loving creatures in this world. She is so affectionate, playful and cute. She loves to be cuddled, meows a lot" her owner explained.
