Miranda Lambert took to Instagram to share the newest addition to her household with her followers. The country music star and her husband Brendan rescued a tiny kitten, and her fans appeared to adore the story and the photos she posted.
“The House That Built Me” singer shared a series of four photographs, and they all featured an adorable orange-and-white, blue-eyed kitten that seemed almost impossibly tiny. The couple named the baby animal Tequila and noted that it was probably only 4- to 5-weeks-old. The kitten appeared to be in great shape despite being found on a two-lane highway in Texas. Some of the photos showed that Tequila might have a small sore on its nose that is healing.
In the first photo, Miranda held her new pet in one hand next to her face. She was in a vehicle with her seatbelt on, and bags could be seen in the back. The singer wore cat-eye tortoiseshell sunglasses with reflective lenses to protect her eyes, and she had on a large diamond wedding band, a small gold chain, and diamond earrings. She had her blond hair up with some pieces framing her face. It didn’t look like Miranda had on much makeup for the trip, and she wore a casual black tank top.
The second picture featured the little kitten atop a blue and white star print fabric, which was sitting on a light wood colored cabinet top. In the third shot, Tequila hitched a ride on Brendan’s shoulder while he drove. He had a big smile on his face, and the kitty seemed interested in looking at everything that was happening. Finally, in the last photo, Miranda showed a picture of her dad holding Tequila on his stomach while a white dog sat on his lap. He looked incredibly happy with a sweet smile on his face.

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.” Well I guess the rescue ways are rubbing off on him. ????????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. ????????. Y’all welcome Tequila the kitten to the family! #tequiladoes @muttnation
