This little kitten “Stitch!” is a fighter that won’t give up, Unbelievable!!

Meet Stitch! He’s a little fighter who survived some animal attack. Stitch was in poor shape when they found him, but the little guy did not give up.

“They guess him to be about 10 days old. He was taken to my vets with a nasty gash on his neck down to the muscle. He got cleaned up, stitched up, and antibiotics. His mother has refused to feed him since the attack because she is so traumatized also. My friend Julie is bottle feeding and fostering him until he’s 6 weeks old,” Carla writes.

The little guy has come a long way!

Pregnant Stray Cat Begs a Family to Help Her in Her Hour of Need

This is the story of a pregnant cat who did something amazing. She didn’t want to bring her kitties into the world without a bit of assistance, and so , he asked one lucky family for help.

Joanne shared this story with Amy at Love Meow:

“Over a year ago, this beautiful blue eyed Siamese lynx cross constantly came by my house. We started feeding her on a routine basis. Every morning she would wait for us in front of our garage and she would literally run half way down the back lane next to our car as we drove home.

This was first taken when she started coming around. She was really skinny.

She would wait for hours while we were at work or out doing errands. One day she thanked us by waiting for us in front of our garage with a dead mouse. Once she saw us, she dropped the mouse and she had this proud look on her face when we graciously accepted her gift.

We were always told that she chose us to help her bring her little ones safely and warm into the world. All of her kittens have found homes and this beautiful girl, once an abandoned stray, now lovingly called Annie, is part of our family.”

adorable story! A woman revives an abandoned kitten after a downpour & saves him

Just two months ago, a tiny one day old kitten was found crawling down a foot path all by himself and absolutely drenched after a downpour. A kind woman picked the little kitten and gave him a home. She immediately became the mom he never had.

She named the little kitten Bruce, after the orphaned Bruce Wayne aka Batman.

Kathryn Van Beek was walking home that day after the pouring rain in Kingsland, Auckland when she saw something barely squirming on the footpath. At first she thought it might have been a mouse, but when she looked closer, she saw a tiny kitten who still had his umbilical cord attached to him.

“He wasn’t meowing when I found him but he was crawling slowly along on his tummy as though he was trying to find his mother. Poor little mite,” Kathryn told Amy at Love Meow.

She took him home and gave the little kitten food which he desperately needed. On day three, Bruce finally started purring.

Feeding and caring Bruce became like a full time job for Kathryn. She had to get up during the night just to feed the baby. Setting the alarm wasn’t necessary because they soon realized that despite his tiny size, Bruce was much louder than any alarm clock when he was hungry. Kathryn even took the kitten with her to work for the first few days of his life. At just 12 days old, Bruce weighed over 100 grams!

Kathryn and her family never planned on having a second cat, but soon after they started fostering Bruce, they knew he was there to stay forever. It wasn’t long before Bruce opened his eyes and was finally able to see all the love he was feeling.

He needed a bit of help with grooming, but little Bruce was and still is getting stronger and bigger every day.

“He is 9 weeks old now and doing really well,” Kathryn said.

Lost Cat Crossed Paths with a travelling man, with the help of kind man reunited with her family

A very friendly stray cat crossed paths with a kind man while he was out in the country. She begged for attention and love and wouldn’t let him go for anything!

“While visiting relatives over the holidays, we found this hungry but good natured tailless cat (possibly a Manx) wandering around by their cabin out in the country,”John said.

The cat was so friendly and just couldn’t get enough love and attention from her new human friend. She rubbed her face on his hand and would then hop onto his shoulders to give him kisses.

John knew they simply had to help the kitty out…

“Got a call a couple days later and found out my cousin found her owner by checking a few farm houses around the area. Turns out that it is a 12 year old female that went missing for a while. Her small size and good condition made me think that she was young.”

“I’m glad to hear that she was reunited with her family since they were really missing their pet.”

Two rescued Pitbulls and three blind rescue cats: a tale of true friendship

Two rescued Pitbulls and three blind rescue cats: a tale of true friendship

DELAWARE – Ever heard the one about the three blind cats befriending two pit bulls?

This is the story of Faithful Friends foster mom, Sherry Stewart.

Stewart, who works in corporate marketing, has fostered more than 60 dogs and 22 cats over her three years of volunteering with the Newport animal rescue organisation.

But this year, she took on two kittens, Bruce and Willis, and one seven-year-old cat, Helen, who has special needs. All three cats ad both their eyes removed.

“Most people would see them as not adoptable,” Stewart of Hockessin said. “And they are.”

Helen, a gray cat with white paws, arrived at Faithful Friends last month after a man called about a stray just hanging around his yard.

“Come get this cat. I’m going to kill her,” he threatened.

Helen was in very rough shape. Hungry and flea-ridden, she also suffered from severe glaucoma, causing one eye to bulge out of her head as if she were an alien. Faithful Friends paid for her spaying and eye surgeries.

Today, she shares Stewart’s home with Stewart’s 14-year-old daughter, Annie Hake, the family’s two pit bulls, Alfie and Frankie, two family cats, four foster kittens, a foster puppy, a guinea pig and also two dwarf rats.

Both of Stewart’s pit bulls are mild-mannered and very nurturing. The gray one, Alfie, serves as a therapy dog at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, while the white one, Frankie, enjoys licking and snuggling with all three of the blind cats.

“I think he sensed that they needed a little TLC,” Stewart says.

What’s more incredible is that nine-year-old Alfie is a former victim of animal abuse, while four-year-old Frankie was rescued with a serious case of mange and pus-filled sores which covered his head.

Helen normally stays in Stewart’s kitchen with her favorite, familiar cat bed and tweeting bird toy. Occasionally, she will jump onto the window’s ledge, but not any higher. When you talk to her, she appears as if she is looking right directly at you, head cocked and ears back, even though her eyelids are sewn together. She also opens her mouth like a baby bird.

“All she wanted was to be held like a baby,” Faithful Friends’ cat manager, Debbie MacDowell, recalled upon meeting Helen. “I think, more than anything, she wanted to know that she was safe.”

A potential adopter is now interested in Helen, after the woman already adopted a one-eyed cat from Faithful Friends who had Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).

Meanwhile, the gray-striped Bruce and Willis remain on the third floor of Stewart’s home, scaling chairs and forever running around in circles. A bonded pair, both will be up for adoption soon on Faithful Friends’ website, www.faithfulfriends.us.

Through the end of the month, the nonprofit is running a “Misfit Special,” where adoption fees shall be waived on 17 featured dogs and cats.

This is the heartwarming, moving story of Steuben and Precious

Being completely blind, Steuben the cat was quite lost until he met a new friend by the name of Precious, who not only became his friend, but his seeing eye kitten.

What a huge role for such a tiny kitty!

“Steuben, just 6 months old, came to the Cleveland APL with horribly damaged eyes that needed to be removed in order to help him feel better,” Cleveland Animal Protective League wrote on Facebook.

“While recovering in a loving foster home, sweet Steuben met Precious, who not only became his new best friend, but also his new pair of eyes!”

Precious, a 3-month-old kitten, taps and nudges Steuben and guides him to his food bowl when it’s time for them to eat.

She is always at his side helping him in every way she possibly can including guiding Steuben around to make sure he doesn’t get himself into any jams.

Of course, we must note that Steuben is learning to some degree, to rely on his own senses. But he doesn’t have much to worry about because Precious will always be there for him.

It has been determined that these two true soulmates need to be adopted together and they are currently awaiting adoption at the center in Tremont, Ohio.

We were at The Best Cat Page wish Steuben and Precious the best in a speedy, quality placement.

A pet Owner’s Cat Becomes Internet Sensation! because of her hilarious pictures of eyes

The owner alleges that after forcing her ginger tabby, named Bozai, to share a cage with a stray puppy she found, the cat suddenly developed boss eyes.

The woman was so shocked that she posted the incident online in an effort to use social media to learn what had happened. Over 42,000 people have shared her article.

Only her social media handle, “I wish to raise a panda,” is used to identify the owner.

On May 23, she posted about the peculiar encounter on Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter.

She claims to be presently residing in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province.

The woman claimed in the post that she had discovered a stray dog that was one month old and had decided to bring it home with her.

She claimed to have given the dog a name: Diliuliu.

She continued by saying that while she wanted to find the puppy a new home, she would first keep it in her home until a suitable family came forward.

She claimed to have a pet cat as well, which she stated spends the day roaming but spends the night in a cage.

The message continued, “It has to sleep with my cat while I hunt for an owner for the dog.

I partitioned the four-level cage into two levels because I worry the puppy would feel lonely. The cat resides on the first floor, while the dog is located on the ground floor.

They can look out for one other and will make terrific neighbours.
The woman continued, “I then discovered Bozai the ginger tabby with wonky eyes all of a sudden on the morning of May 23.”

Oh my god, [it has] turned boss-eyed, she added. Is it because the cat didn’t sleep properly and the dog yelled all night?

The bewildered pet owner tweeted nine images with the statement, displaying the poor cat’s misaligned eyes.

Bozai has previously played with dogs without any issues, according to her, and it appeared to be enjoying its new pal Diliuliu.

In an effort to receive some guidance, the woman tagged Zhang Xu, a veterinarian.

Her post soon gained traction and now has more than 42,000 shares and 28,600 likes. from Monday!

I have postpartum depression, and I was crying just now, but I should feel much better after reading this post, said ‘Lou zhu ren.’

A: “Ba bo si 35mr.” I have been giggling at this post for two days, the author then wrote.

Even some other users attempted to explain why they thought the cat had crossed its eyes.

Perhaps the cat was extremely stressed, a user remarked. If the condition persists, it can pass away. You should take it to a veterinarian.

It has been staring at the dog for too long, complained user ‘lybbbbbbb’.

The post further stated: “According to my investigation, this is a result of the dog and cat sharing an area too closely.”

The extra-ocular muscles of the cat, who was sleeping on its side and gazing at the dog the entire night, were temporarily damaged.

Small Farm Carpenter was approached by a kitten who decided to lay claim to his shoulder

On a farm, an amazing event occurred one day. It was the kind of encounter that many cat lovers have had or would adore having in the future.

A small farm kitten crept up the worker’s arm and, for no discernible reason, chose to just climb up on his shoulder and… stay there.

A Canadian carpenter from Red Deer, Alberta, by chance was the lucky man.

When this tiny calico kitty decided to claim his shoulder as her own, he had just finished his duties.

She simply approached me, meowed once, then crawled up onto my shoulder when I took her up, according to reddit user GodlyGrilledCheese.

“The location was close to my workshop, which is at the home of my boss. On his property, they reside in one of the heated barns. She’s fine, I can tell that because I occasionally see her wandering around.

Unfortunately, he cannot have pets where he lives, therefore he would have wanted to adopt the adorable little girl. His biggest supporter is still looking for a forever home, he says!

He described Love Meow to Amy, saying of her, “Their tiny nest is cosy and toasty during the day and night, lots of blankets for them.”

10-day-old kitten shocked everyone with her incredible battle for life!

She hadn’t even been born two weeks, and nobody really believed this gorgeous infant would make it. Everyone undoubtedly had their fingers crossed that first night! She hadn’t even opened her eyes.

This cute little fighter did actually survive the first night, the second night, and the third night!

She hadn’t even been born two weeks, and nobody really believed this gorgeous infant would make it. Everyone undoubtedly had their fingers crossed that first night! She hadn’t even opened her eyes.

This cute little fighter did actually survive the first night, the second night, and the third night!

“On January 15, Bobby visited us (we originally thought she was a he). Bobby’s mother, a stray cat, rejected him. She was so weak from the fleas, and Love Meow was told by Purrfect Pals Cat Shelter that her gums were white and her tiny tongue was grey.

The staff did everything they could to see to it that she not only survived the night, but also made it through!

“The shelter’s veterinarian removed fleas. She was continuously fed by her foster mother, who also carried Bobby and other little children about in her bra to keep them extra warm. We can tell how determined she is by their tiny claws!”

She continues to struggle with gaining weight and controlling her body temperature, but she is a little fighter and becoming stronger every day. She is lavished with affection and nourishment by her foster family.

Who doesn’t enjoy a happy conclusion?

This little survival still lacks a loving home that will be his or hers forever.

Gorgeous Shady the Cat receives a life-saving Pacemaker of his own in ultra-rare operation

Gorgeous Shady the Cat receives a life-saving Pacemaker of his own in ultra-rare operation

In an extremely uncommon procedure, a cat who was in complete heart failure was given his own life-saving pacemaker.

An eight-year-old tabby cat named Shady was brought to Walker Green Vets in Timperley, Greater Manchester, just for a normal checkup when the doctors noticed something was wrong with his heartbeat.

The animal had more cardiology examinations after which it was discovered that he had what the veterinarians termed a total heart block.

He was at high risk of developing cardiac failure because of the illness, but doctors indicated a pacemaker could save his life.

The exceedingly complex procedure was then completed by a group of professionals.

Despite the fact that pacemakers are frequently found in humans, they are uncommon in other animals, like as dogs, and even more so in cats.

Emma Greene, the clinic’s lead nurse, who participated in the treatment, said the team experienced a mix of apprehension and exhilaration.

The treatment had never been carried out at Walker Green before, therefore the day needed to go as smoothly as possible, he continued.

During the procedure, which was paid for by Ms. Hutchinson’s insurance, Shady’s heart was accessed through his belly, and while it was still beating, a special lead was attached to the outside of the muscle.

When Shady’s heart stops beating, this line, which is attached to a pacemaker, can pinpoint the exact moment and transmit an electrical signal.

Veterinary cardiologist Emily Dutton from Cheshire Cardiology, surgeon Catherine Sturgeon from Visiting Vet Doctors, and veterinary anaesthetist Carl Bradbrook made up the team of specialists who performed the procedure.

When Catherine instructed me to use my fingers to lift Shady’s sternum up so that she could get a good view, I could feel his heart beating against my finger as the procedure advanced and it was time to sew the lead to his heart, Ms. Greene continued.

Cats are a fairly uncommon candidate for the treatment due to their size. A cat’s pacemaker must be inserted through the belly, unlike dogs, which can have one implanted through the shoulder because to their larger veins.

In Singapore, a comparable procedure cost $5,000, or roughly £3,500 in US dollars.

Soon after, Shady was sent home to rest. Just last week, he went back to see the specialists for a post-op check-up and is now in good health.

Shady’s owner Laura Hutchinson acknowledged that the news that Shady needed a pacemaker was “shocking and worrying,” but added, “He has recovered incredibly well.” He has been taking it easy because he is generally a calm cat, but he is starting to act more playful.

“The team has done a great job.” In order to check on Shady, Emily contacted Ben and his team, who took good care of us.

We are all ecstatic that Shady has recovered so well, Emma continued. We are happy that we could help Shady and his owner, and it makes us proud.

According to Caroline Allen, director of veterinary services for the RSPCA London, “Fitting a pacemaker is a very specialised treatment that would be done by a cardiologist.”

Although pacemakers are frequently implanted in dogs, I have never heard of them being used to treat cats since cats rarely develop the kind of heart conditions that call for a pacemaker.

Though I hope that means this cat will now be able to enjoy a long, happy, and healthy life, it’s interesting to know that this treatment has been done.
