When a three-week-old kitten was found in critical condition by animal-loving humans, they took her into their home to nurse her back to health. They weren’t sure if she would make it through the night, as she remained “lethargic and limp” despite constant care. Then, they enlisted the help of maternal husky named Lilo.
” [We] decided to go out on a limb and let her cuddle extensively with Lilo. By some miracle, she started suckling on Lilo and Lilo went into full ‘mom mode,’” said this post from the @lilothehusky Instagram page.
Nala the cat went out to play in the neighborhood the other day but surprised her human when she came home with a note attached to her
“My girlfriend’s cat came home with this note,” reddit user goldenstate30 said.
Nala is a very social cat. She was out in the neighborhood, doing what she loves to do – meeting the neighbors and sharing a bit of love with the people in the area.
Her human mom was really surprised when she came back with a note attached to her.
The note was written by a neighbor:
“I don’t know who this cat belongs to, but she comes and visits us every few weeks. She’ll meow outside our backdoor until we let her in; she… walks around the house like its hers; waits at the fridge until my husband and I feed her bologna. She doesn’t like soft cat food very much! We look forward to her visits. We lost our 21 year old cat this year.”
Nala has been visiting the family the same year they lost their beloved 21 year old cat.
The determined tabby refused to leave the vets and tried to sneak through the door every time it opened.
A box of kittens was left on the door step of the Mill Roads Vet Clinic, and staff promptly took them in to check their health.
Rademenesa was diagnosed with an inflamed respiratory tract in 2014, when he was 2 months old. He survived the ordeal and now lives at the animal shelter and keeps other sick animals company at the shelter’s veterinary surgery and tries to nurse them back to health.
Instead of being adopted after his recovery, Rademenes became a mascot to the veterinarians who work at the shelter, which is located in Poland. It is an occupation he is completely suited to.
Reddit user newjhelum posted these photos of Rademenesa (also seen in their Imgur slideshow at bottom of this post) yesterday, and, not surprisingly, images of the compassionate, nurse cat are now going viral and making news.
A cat has made a supermarket his home and refuses to leave even though the staff tries to remove him. He just keeps sauntering back in.
This ginger cat from England has been dubbed the store’s resident cat and has been spotted by shoppers prowling around the store and sitting on a shelf supervising the operation inside the supermarket.
Adam Oliver, a resident who lives near by, has come forward to say that the cat’s name is Olly and he belongs to him. Olly has been regularly appearing in the Sansbury’s supermarket since last November.
“(He) lives close to shop, 6 years old, had him since he was 6 weeks old, name is Olly Oliver and he has a blue brother,” Adam said via twitter.
The kitty comes in, gets removed by security and walks right back in. He seems to be perfectly content with the routine being a habitual feline that he is.
A local resident shared her story on I Love SE4: “I saw this gorgeous cat tonight at Sainsbury and my daughter said that the security is keeping an eye on him … Maybe the security was on a break.”
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.
Step one: Find a branch
It all started when I brought this branch home from a local park that was devastated by high winds that downed a ton of trees. Ramon was immediately interested.
A two-year-old shelter cat named Edward never had a loving family to call his own. But little did he know that someone was out there who needed him more than he needed them.
Iona had made a trip to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Conroe, Texas with her son. Her cat of 10 years had just passed away. After looking for a new companion, she spotted Edward, and instantly knew he was the one for her. “The way he cuddled upon my shoulder reminded me of the cat I’d just lost,” she recalls.
Barbara Bates, the adoption coordinator for the animal shelter, was there with her camera when this rare incident of ‘love-at-first-sight’ happened, right there in the lobby of the red-brick building.
“It just filled my heart,” Bates says about the scene. “The kitty just snuggled right up to her.”
“I said, ‘Iona, do you mind if I take your picture?’ And she said, ‘Honey, I sure hope I don’t break your camera.’”
Bates’ camera turned out fine, but I wouldn’t be surprised if a few hearts broke upon seeing this tender moment captured that day:

“[This] photo tells me Edward immediately sensed that Iona had lots of love and security to offer him,” Bates says.
“To me, an animal gives you life, that a person can’t, or material things can’t.
“You come home from a stressful day, and they want to kiss on you. It just makes everything bad go away. So it just touched my heart.”
Looks like Iona will have a new favorite picture of hers to treasure.
