This Photo Captures The Tender Moment A 102-Year-Old Woman Fell In Love With A Shelter Cat

October 12, 2016 | 1 Comment » | Topics: Cats, Heartwarming |

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.

Father of the Year! Loving Dad Gets Tattoo to Match Daughter’s Cochlear Implant So She Wouldn’t Feel Different

October 11, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Heartwarming, Parenting |

dad gets tattoo of cochlear implant to match daughter

Alistair Campbell is a (great) dad from Taupo, New Zealand. His 6-year-old daughter Charlotte is hearing impaired, fully deaf in her left ear, and with a limited ability to transmit sound to her brain from her right. She had her first cochlear implant put in when she was four, and just recently had to go back to the hospital to have another put in. Still, her dad was determined for her not to feel like an outsider because of her condition, so he booked his own appointment, except his was at the tattoo parlor.

Alistair, who previously had no tattoos, shaved his head and had a realistic tattoo of a cochlear implant inked on his scalp. When asked why he did it, he told the New Zealand Herald,

“My love for her really. Hey, my hair can grow back.”

It really is a sweet gesture. He can go about his life with no one the wiser, but any time he wants to reconnect with his daughter, all he has to do is bust out the razor. What a brilliant dad hack.

Charlotte’s diagnosis didn’t come as a surprise – her mother Anita has used a cochlear implant too, and her brother has hearing aids. Now the whole family matches. What’s more, Anita says that the implants have had a wonderful effect on her, transforming her from someone who would keep to herself to “pretty much a social butterfly.” Of course, it can’t hurt that she has some kickass parents.

Kind Women Knit Sweaters For Rescued Chickens To Keep Them Warm

September 23, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Heartwarming |

sweaters for chickens

Thanks to two kind-hearted women, rescued battery chickens are experiencing how good – and cozy – life can be.

Nicola Congdon and her mother, Ann, from Falmouth in Cornwall, England, own around 60 hens and half of them are former battery chickens. This means that they have, unfortunately, spent most of their lives in cages, and are not able to acclimatize to normal weather conditions.

To keep them warm during the frigid winter months, Ann and Nicola came up with an ingenious solution: knit them wooly chicken jumpers.

Says Nicola:

“It’s important to make people aware of the poor conditions the hens live in and the fact that they have no feathers when they are retired.” 

Nicola and Ann are now receiving special requests for jumpers from hen-keepers near and far. Instead of selling the tank tops for profit, she said the money goes to an AIDS orphanage in South Africa.
