Miranda Lambert is an American country music singer, songwriter, and animal lover. She now owns eight dogs, some cats, bunnies, chickens, and horses.
Not only does she love singing and making music, but she also loves saving animals. However, she is not alone in her pursuit of rescuing and helping animals in need. Her love of saving animals had rubbed off on her husband, Brendan McLoughlin.
During a recent trip in Texas, Miranda and her husband Brendan encountered a stray kitten in need of help. Miranda shared the rescue story on her Instagram page and it quickly went viral.
“Two lane highway in Texas, speed limit 70. Brendan slows down and does a U-turn… Me to B: “why are you turning around?” B to me: “there’s a kitten in the road and I knew you would kill me if I saw it and didn’t stop,” she wrote on Instagram.
She proudly wrote, “Well I guess the rescue ways are rubbing off on him.”
The couple saved the kitten from highway and named him Tequila. Instead of dropping Tequila off at a local shelter, they decided to bring him home with them.
Although the couple was able to keep him, they revealed that they found him a forever home with Miranda’s parents in Texas. The kitten fell in love with her parents and decided to stay with them.
“We stopped at mom and dads on the way home. Dad has a new bestie. This kitten rode 9 hours back to Nashville with us and 3 dogs and was such a champ.”
“He is 4-5 weeks old and weighs 14 Ounces,” she added. “Y’all welcome Tequila the kitten to the family!”
Lambert shared a photo of Tequila on her husband’s shoulder as he was driving as well as photo of the kitten sleeping on her dad’s chest as they stopped her parents’ home.
Miranda found inspiration for her new music project on the road and she and her husband are inspiring others with their kind hearts. Fans from around the world admire the couple and praised them for saving the kitten and for finding him a forever-loving home.
One of her fans commented: “Just another reason I am your biggest fan! Rescue people rock!” Another said, “Awww, how lucky can one kitty be!!!! You have a couple of good men in your life, Miranda!!”
Apparently, her parents are animal lovers too. In 2009, Lambert and her mom founded the MuttNation Foundation, an organization that aims to rescue animals, help shelter pets find loving homes, and assist shelters during emergencies and disasters.
In 2014, Lambert opened Redemption Ranch, a shelter in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, her adopted hometown where she lived with her ex-husband Blake Shelton. Thanks to her organization and shelter, many rescue animals have found their forever home.
