This Golden Retriever Adopted A Kitten That Was Rejected By Its Mother

dog rescue kittens

When Imichi, a tiny tabby kitten, was rejected by her mother she was taken in by Ponzu, a golden retriever, and Jessiepon, his owner. Jessiepon is best known for turning her previous cat, Wasabi-chan, into an Internet sensation; after Wasabi-chan died suddenly last year, Jessiepon decided to open her home to this rescue kitty. From the looks of Jessiepon’s Instagram, though, it seems the rescue might have been Ponzu’s idea.

The dog struck up an immediate friendship with Imichi, treating Imichi like a puppy and playing with her constantly once she regained her strength. Jessiepon has started chronicling the animals’ friendship in photos, and the two appear to be inseparable — and very, very loving.

These Service Dogs Spent a Day at Disneyland and the Photos Are Adorable

Canine Companions for Independence

Disneyland is the most magical place on earth. That doesn’t mean humans are the only ones who can enjoy it. Recently, a group of service dogs got to have some fun in the park. A group of dogs working with Canine Companions for Independence, a nonprofit group that provides highly trained assistance dogs to help people with disabilities for free, got to take a field trip to Disneyland.

This may look like a fun trip, but these dogs were busy at work.

Disneyland is a pretty stimulating environment, which means there are plenty of distractions for these dogs: the smells, the people, the characters. It wouldn’t take much for a working dog to forget he is at work and start playing around and running wild in the park.

They are being trained to maintain their composure in any setting. No matter where they are, they need to be able to work with their owners and be completely focused on their needs. If they can stay focused at Disneyland, they can stay focused anywhere.

Bullied Boy Rescues Cat With Same Rare Eye Condition & Cleft Lip

A 7-year-old boy that was bullied for having two different colored eyes and a cleft lip has found a best friend and soul mate in a shelter cat with the exact same conditions.

Madden was often bullied in school because of his cleft palate and complete heterochromia iridum — a rare condition that causes his eyes to be two different colors. Only one percent of the world’s population is affected.

Madden’s mom, Christina wrote that for a while, the bullying really affected Madden; it seemed to break his spirit. So when she saw a photo of the cat with a cleft lip and heterochromia on a Facebook community group of mothers of children with cleft lip and palate, Humphreys knew immediately that the cat was meant to be a part of their family.

Lonely Husky Escaped His Yard To Go Hug His Best Friend

Lonely Husky Escaped The Yard To Hug His Best Friend

Oranit Kittragul

Messy and his human, Oranit Kittragul, live in Thailand. Just across the street lives Audi, a Husky who is alone most of the day while his human is at work. Being alone makes Audi sad and anxious, and whenever he feels that his friend feels a little too alone, Messy steps in. Messy barks at him and that somehow calms Audi.

“When Audi feels lonely and cries, I always ask my dog to see and talk to him,” Oranit told The Dodo. “My dog just looks from my fence and sometime he barks to Audi. I don’t know what they are communicating, but he stops crying.”
