Rancho Relaxo is a non-profit in Woodstown, New Jersey founded by Caitlin Cimini that’s dedicated to helping every animal they possibly can—whether that’s bringing rescues to their farm or simply raising awareness. They’ve rescued everything from horses to goats, from pigs to hens, to kill shelter cats and dogs. To date, they’ve saved over 300 animals and they vow to never stop.
Among their rescues is a foster kitten named Sriracha who suffers from a neurological disorder called cerebella hypoplasia (CH). The condition can cause seizures and balance problems. Cimini noticed that one day, after a particularly bad bout with CH, one of the ranch’s orphan piglets—named Batman—would come over to Sriracha to snuggle and comfort her.
Tragically, Batman passed away due to congenital issues. Cimini shared the heartbreaking story of how hard they tried to save Batman, but to no avail.
Soon after, Cimini successfully rescued Batman’s piglet siblings from an auction house, and although Cimini admitted the rescue was “bittersweet” in the light of Batman’s death, she was very happy to report that his big brother (whom they named Dragonlord) took very quickly to Sriracha—“even better than Batman did,” Cimini announced on Instagram.
Cimini has continued to share videos of Sriracha and Dragonlord sharing kisses, and they’re so incredibly sweet, you will likely find yourself in tears. The piglet is the kitten’s comfort when she is suffering and restorative spirit when she’s not—proving love and connection know no species.
