In Her First Starbucks Run Kitten Becomes Much Too Excited

Meredith and her siblings were discovered outside in the storm, drenched and in need of assistance. When they arrived in Foster the Furbabies’ care, they were only around 3 weeks old and were quite unwell, suffering from upper respiratory infections, eye infections, and parasites.

“Meredith was the runt of the litter, and we weren’t sure if she or her siblings were even going to make it,” Gianna Cirucci, co-founder of Foster the Furbabies, told The Dodo. “Thankfully, they all thrived while in our care, but it definitely did not come easy for Meredith.”

Meredith experienced vision problems for a long time after her siblings had recovered. She was ultimately certified for adoption after many illnesses and numerous medical visits, however, the vet warned that she could have some little eyesight impairment in the future. Even though they knew they’d have to say goodbye, her rescuers were overjoyed to see her fully recovered.

Cirucci stated, “She was one of the very first cats we had saved since we started our rescue, and she’ll always be one of our favorites.”

Meredith’s rescuers wanted to do something special for her before she headed to her new home, so they chose to take her to Starbucks for a Starbucks Puppuccino. Meredith has always been a little preoccupied with food, so they figured she’d enjoy the gift.

“When it comes to eating, she was (and still is) completely insane,” Cirucci remarked. “She would attempt to devour everything.” If she caught a whiff of whatever I was eating, she would crawl up my body and try to eat it out of my mouth or land face-first on my plate. This female had a huge appetite for a runt of the litter.”

After going through the drive-through and ordering her a Puppuccino, her rescuers presented Meredith with her treat — and she immediately went nuts for it.

“She dove headfirst into the cup,” Cirucci recalled, “and we started recording her because it was a moment we didn’t want to forget.” “She had us in tears and I was gasping because she had us laughing so hard.”

Meredith was so excited about her treatment that and couldn’t get enough of it. The whipped cream was all over her, and even the barista in the drive-through window couldn’t stop laughing and taking pictures of the goofy, messy kitten.

“We cleaned her up right after because more of the pup cup went on her face than in her mouth, but she obviously had a nice time and appreciated her treat,” Cirucci said. “She kept trying to bring the cup back to her face and was so sad when we wouldn’t let her have anymore.”

They decided to share the cute video of Meredith and her treat on the internet, and it went viral. Some people were concerned about providing dairy to a cat, but Meredith’s rescuers conducted their homework and discovered that kittens may eat it on occasion. There’s no need to be concerned because most of the whipped cream ended up on Meredith’s fur anyway.

A few days after her special treat, Meredith went off to her forever home. She’s now all settled in and doing so well. She has cat siblings whom she absolutely adores, and is of course still obsessed with food. While her rescuers miss her, they’re so glad she found such a perfect home, and will always have the goofy video of her trying to eat a cappuccino to remember her by.
