Little Scarlette Tipton must be used to feeling like the odd one out. You see, she was born with a rare form of cancer and had to have her arm amputated when she was just 10 months old.
But now, the 2-year-old amputee has a new friend who understands just what life with a missing limb is like – her new kitten Doc.
No one knows exactly how the tabby cat lost her leg – at just 3 months old, she was found bleeding with one of her front legs dangling just before Christmas.
This is Tigger, a senior kitty of 21 years who was abandoned at a shelter in Baltimore.
It’s probably not a good idea to try to put a cat in a regular backpack, but one American company has come up with a superb alternative.
The “cat-pack” from U-pet leaves all other pet carriers for dust. It’s safe, it’s comfortable, and best of all it looks like a tiny spaceship.
The porthole/bubble window (which can be switched to mesh, or taken out completely for small dogs) lets cats and other small pets enjoy the view while they’re out and about, with owners secure in the knowledge that they’re perfectly safe.
“Our solution-based designs allow your pets to enjoy the scenery and interact with the outside world,” says U-pet. A wide range of styles are available, from backpacks to shoulder bags, and all have breathing holes, soft cushioning and are made of non-toxic materials.
Not only would the cat-pack make your moggy’s next trip to the vet a lot more fun, it’s surely the perfect way to give an indoor cat a glimpse of the great outdoors? Just pop her in, sling her over your back and let her see what’s going on in the big bad world.
A cat cafe is a theme coffee shop whose attraction are cats that can be watched and played with. Patrons pay a cover fee, generally hourly, and thus cat cafes can be seen as a form of supervised indoor pet rental. Cat cafes are quite popular in Japan, with Tokyo being home to at least 39 cat cafes. The popularity of cat cafes in Japan is attributed to many apartments forbidding pets, and to cats providing relaxing companionship in what may otherwise be a stressful and lonesome urban life. Other forms of pet rental, such as rabbit cafes, are also common in Japan
1. Mr. Biscuits
Mr. Biscuits tried to escape the cold by climbing up inside of a car engine, but when the car drove away he was badly burned. He is now recovered and never has to worry about being that cold (or hot) again.
2. Blind Kitten Turned Healthy Survivor
A local shelter found this little kitten abandoned in a box full of other kittens. Although blind, she was the only one still alive. Today she is healthier, and cutter, than ever.
