This Rooster Totally Remembers the Man Who Saved Him

Posted by Daphne Cybele

This little fluffy Silkie rooster has a long memory and a big place in his heart for the man who saved him.

Camus, a fluffy ball of silkie rooster, runs to greet and snuggle with Peter Jakubisin every time Peter returns to Lighthouse Sanctuary. Why does Camus the rooster have such a bond with Peter?

"Camus doesn't really like anyone else, but he took to Peter immediately for some reason. Now he waits for him to get home and comes running to greet him," Gwen Jakubisin of the Lighthouse Sanctuary told The Dodo.

Camus and his brother Sartre were dumped in a cardboard box last November right near Thanksgiving and now have a new home at the Lighthouse Sanctuary in Oregon. Apparently, he's very thankful and not at all afraid to show a little love for his rescuer.

Here's the video (fair warning, you'll want to play it over and over):

Every day Camus waits patiently for his friend Peter to get home and then runs as fast as he can to greet him. Their friendship is so sweet. ❤

The lyrics of "This Town" by Niall Horan seem appropriate...

"Cause if the whole world was watching I'd still dance with you, drive highways and byways to be there with you, over and over the only truth, everything comes back to you."

Next up: "Running Home to You" by Grant Gustin:

"All I want to do, is come running home to you, come running home to you."

And finally, "Back to You" by Russ.
