Dramatic finding of a missing cat under a bridge results in her reunion with her family!

Two men went to rescue a cat who was stranded under a bridge. After the tabby was saved, they found out that she had been missing from her home for over 15 months!

The kitty was spotted on the base of Dolphin Bridge (Norwich, England) by a cyclist Becky Steel who quickly alerted two men close by who were preparing their boat. Stephen Hawkes and Danny Mealey paddled out to retrieve the cat.

“At first the cat looked panicky but it wanted to come on the coat in the end,” Hawkes told EDP.

When the RSPCA took the cat to the vet, they found a microchip which showed that she had been missing from her home for 15 months.

They were able to track the family down and found her human Adrienne Hamilton who looked for her cat for months until she thought she couldn’t find her any more.

“I couldn’t believe it when I got that she had been found. It was lovely – she recognized me immediately and made this chirping noise she used to do when she saw me,” Hamilton told EDP.

“The children were over the moon. My son actually cried to hear that his pet was alive,” Hamilton told MustardTV.

Finally home.

The big screen adaptation of A Street Cat Named Bob

There have been six books about James Bowen and his companion Bob to date

The heart-warming story of a cat named Bob and his owner, which has already spawned a series of best-selling books, is to be turned into a major film.

A Street Cat Named Bob, the original book about how Bob helped busker James Bowen turn his life around, has sold more than a million copies in the UK.

Work on the film will begin version in October.

Luke Treadaway, who found fame on stage in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, will play Bowen.

The movie will also star Treadaway’s real-life girlfriend, actress Ruta Gedmintas, and be directed by Roger Spottiswoode, who made Tomorrow Never Dies.

The film will be based on the book, which tells the story of how Bowen, then a recovering drug addict, found an injured Bob in his sheltered accommodation in 2007 and nursed him back to health.

The pair became inseparable and Bowen credits the scarf-wearing cat with aiding his own recovery.

A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life was published in 2012, and there have since been five further books.

A film has been in the pipeline for several years, and in 2013 Bowen told the BBC: “Bob changed my life and if they make a movie about us, that will just be the ultimate rags-to-turning our life somewhere better.”

Runt Kitten Becomes One Extremely Fluffy Cuddle Monster As It Ages!

Brownie was actually the runt of his litter way back when.

“He is quite special – his right paw has only two toes, so called a “crab-leg” or a paw of victory,” Justina Strumilaite explained to Love Meow.

When he was just a baby, he was pushed aside by all of his own siblings and wasn’t eating well from mom for a few weeks.

“But a little champion that he is, eventually he fought his way over his siblings.”

“He is so friendly and knows his name very well, he has a dog personality and follows you once you get home no matter where you go!

He loves people! He is my most loyal companion. And he even gives kisses!”

One year later, he wasn’t so small anymore!!

Brownie – the Cuddle Monster!

This is one beautiful cat!

The “Celine Dion of Cats,” Carmela, Waits 463 Days for a Home

Queen Carmela is the “Celine Dion of cats,” say rescuers from North San Diego County, California. Love Your Feral Felines (LYFF) shared Carmela’s story, showing how even the most amazing adult cats sometimes have a long wait in shelters to find forever homes.

When Carmela was with LYFF for 425 days, they shared a post celebrating the 5-year-old cat’s charms. By doing so, they also hoped someone would come forward to bring her home at last.

“Let’s talk about 5-year-old Carmela. This pretty girl has been with LYFF for exactly 425 days and has been patiently waiting for her furmily ever since that day last April,” they shared.

                   Carmela, the Celine Dion of Cats

Carmela is a bit of a lovable diva craving the spotlight, and she has no problem letting you know. Those familiar with tortoiseshell cats know they tend to have a unique “tortitude.” . Carmela could be a mix of a Calico, Tabby and Tortie; a stunning Torbico.

“Carmela is the Celine Dion of cats. While you can’t deny Carmela or Dion the diva title – and can’t deny Carmela’s tortitude – that exterior wraps around a sweet and loving heart. Like Celine, Carmela revels in the spotlight and wants all the attention and petting you’ll give her. She’s very much in charge, so she has no problem letting you know what she wants when she wants it. But even though she’s a bit of a boss cat, she’s a complete doll. She’ll talk to you and follow you around to make sure you know when she wants love, and she is just the biggest lap magnet! She is good with kids and is very calm. She just wants to be loved on and appreciated and celebrated!”

In a post from July 2021, the rescuers said, “Carmela’s looking for her furrever home, and for her, it’s all about ‘the power of love!’”

               Carmela Finds the Right Home At Last

By the end of the next month, one of the rescue’s volunteers had fallen for Carmela. Congratulations to this family!

“After a 463-day wait, our super sweet and sassy Queen Carmela has been adopted by one of our wonderful volunteers. 🙌 We will all miss that sassy girl and all those lap cuddles she loves so much! We wish the best for her in her new home! Happy tails, Carmela! 🤎🧡🤎🧡”

                  Carmela’s Arrival in Spring 2021

The first pictures of Carmela, the pretty tortie, were way back in the spring of 2021. Nevertheless, she was still at LYFF through the winter. It’s puzzling since she’s calm, so pretty, and good with kittens and kids. 

In the spring of 2022, Carmela the meowdel was still there.

“…Apply to adopt our meowdel Carmela! She’s beautiful inside and out and deserves a home as special as she is,” they shared in March.

By the time Carmela went home, she was a favorite for many. All were happy to see her finally have her dream come true.

“It was a great day seeing her off to her fur-ever home! She will be treated like a Queen 👑 for certain. She’s a beautiful girl who’s time finally came. Happiest of tails to you Carmela girl. ❤️” said one person.

“Thank you, fellow volunteer, for adopting The Queen! You (and she) will have a wonderful life together!” said another person.

We still have no idea why it took so long for Carmela to find a

Her story is a good reminder not to overlook adult cats. Often, they can be shy or have cattitude, but change completely when they are settled in a loving home. As Celine, the singer, says, remember that “Love comes to those who believe it, And that’s the way it is.”

Older cats can make the best companions and settle into a calm home life with ease. Thus, they are purrfect for older people or those who want a quiet companion to share their lives with. Of course, no two cats are the same! So some adult cats have the energy levels of much younger kittens. But you’re sure to find just the right match with so many cats looking for homes across the country.

2 kittens decide to trust the cat that was found living beneath the shopping carts

A cat was found living under shopping carts with her two kittens. They decided to trust after 24 hours indoors.

When Sparkle Cat Rescue was notified about a stray cat nursing two kittens at a Walmart, their volunteers sprang into action. The trio were found hunkering down under a packed row of shopping carts.

Within ten minutes, rescuers were able to get the mother and one of the kittens safely into a humane trap. The remaining little one was too savvy and gave his rescuers a run for their money.

After waiting for what seemed to be an eternity, they decided to try a different approach.

Christina, an experienced TNR rescuer, attempted to lure the remaining kitten out with his sibling, but that didn’t work. When she switched to the tortie cat, the kitten slowly emerged from hiding to the sound of his mother.

After over two hours of effort, they got the final kitten and reunited him with his family.

“The last kitten trapped was the most hissy and his sibling fed off of it,” Sparkle Cat Rescue shared with Love Meow.

That night, the family of three were able to eat to their hearts’ content and rest comfortably in a quiet space. In just one day, the kittens, Raz and Taz, went from being hissy spitfires to accepting pets and snuggles.

The tortie cat, Nora, was a little timid but inquisitive about people. The change in her kittens’ demeanor gave her the confidence and reassurance that they were safe.

“The Walmart employees said she had the kittens in the garden center. The babies might not have survived had they stayed at the parking lot where there is such high traffic. We are so thankful that they are healthy and safe.”

Raz and Taz, then six weeks old, were eating canned kitten food like champs. They still enjoyed nursing on their mom throughout the day for additional snacking and comfort.

“Raz is the larger of the two and has a little shorter tail. Taz loves to jump up on laps once he feels comfortable with you.”

The two have been a bonded pair since day one. They feed off each other’s energy and do everything together as partners in mischief. Raz has learned to be brave by watching and imitating his brother.

After each play session, they curl up in a basket or bed, wrap their arms around each other before purring themselves to sleep.

Nora is happy as can be now that her job as a mother is complete. She is still working on socialization with the help of a loving foster family and other feline friends.

Every day, she makes good strides and gains more confidence. “She is a little shy but very curious about people and good with other cats.”

After nearly two months in foster care, Raz and Taz had their dream come true today when they moved into their forever home together.

In no time, they will claim all the big chairs in the house and fill their kingdom with purrs and cuddles.

“We can’t help thinking how lucky they are. We are so glad we could save them and make such a difference in their future.”

2 Kittens Are Brought to a Yard by a Cat in Search of a Better Life for Them

A grey cat appeared in a yard scrounging around for food scraps. She was very hungry and came up to the homeowners for something to fill her belly.

The family wanted to help the friendly stray before the weather became too harsh to bear. Nadia, an animal rescuer based in Montreal, Canada, saw their plea and sprang into action.

When she arrived at their home, she spotted the long-haired feline and two kittens that had been brought along. The cat had been trying to feed her little family, and Nadia was determined to get them all off the streets.

The cat mother and her precious two finally bade farewell to the outdoors that day. They arrived at Chatons Orphelins Montreal, a cat rescue, where a foster home was awaiting them.

“The cat was named Melbie, and her kittens were Loupix (boy) and Lio (girl),” the rescue shared.

While the younglings quickly came out of their shells and embraced the luxuries of indoor life, Melbie took her time to explore her new abode, and slowly ventured outside her comfort zone.

“She was a bit unsure at first (having lived outside for so long), but her curiosity won each time. She became more confident and played a little more every day.”

Once Melbie mustered up her courage, she started to seek affection from her people. She would rub her face against their legs, join them in their bedroom at night and curl up next to them to sleep.

“It was beautiful to see how she evolved into a more confident cat,” the rescue shared.

Cat eludes his owner’s control and the original shelter won’t return him!

Rae Bees, a Chicago-based artist, had had a difficult month. She has been battling in court for custody of her cherished cat for the past month! Reggie the cat, so named after comedian Reggie Watts, ran away from Bees’ house and returned to the animal shelter from whence he had been adopted.

Just one day before Halloween, Bees’ cat broke out of her house, and she instantly posted a meme on Facebook asking for assistance. Reggie here, and I’m lost (again). I’m not wearing a collar. I might have been kidnapped. I’ll get away once more, the cat’s image declared.

The cat was recognised on Chicago’s streets shortly after that. Someone called Feline Friends, the group from which Reggie was adopted, after scanning her microchip. Reggie was given back to the shelter, and after looking Rae Bees up on Facebook, they made the decision to keep the cat.

Reggie was adopted by Bees five years ago, and as part of the adoption agreement, she agreed not to allow her cat outside. Reggie was frequently featured in photos posted on Bees’ Facebook site, and there were previously previous posts appealing for assistance in locating the missing cat.

In defence of herself, Bees claimed that although she forbids Reggie from going outside, he always has a cunning plan to get away. Reggie’s return to Bees’ house is simply forbidden by Feline Friends, and a court hearing is imminent.

The company claims that she broke the agreement, but Bees’ lawyers counter that it isn’t enforceable. According to Mariana Karampelas, one of Bees’ attorneys, “It’s not an enforceable contract,” she told the Chicago Tribune.

Bees is permitted to see Reggie for one hour per week until the matter is resolved, and she is determined to win the custody dispute for her cherished cat.

“I believe that [Feline Friends] believed I was a simple art student and would abandon him like I didn’t care. But I’m so determined to attempt to win him back. To me, he is like a family,” Bees remarked.

A couple found this abandoned kitten, who was unable to meow, and helped her regain her voice

A sweet couple was strolling down the street a few weeks ago when they spotted a little kitten wandering around and seemed confused. When the kitten tried to meow but failed, they stopped to pet it and were perplexed.

The kitten was severely underweight and in need of assistance. The kitten was taken to the Friends For Life Rescue Network by Justin and Erica after they searched up neighbouring shelters. The shelter was at a loss as to what to do when Justin abandoned the cat and disappeared for a week. He later went back and informed them he could foster her.

In the interim, the kitten was taken to the doctor by Jacqueline DeAmor, co-founder of the Friends for Life Network, where it was discovered that it was very underweight at just one pound. She was also severely dehydrated and covered in fleas, but fortunately the veterinarian was able to heal her.

They took the kitten home and gave it the name Whisper when Justin and Erica returned. The kitten was nurtured by them, and as a result, she became stronger every day and now enjoys cuddling with her rescuers.

Whisper doesn’t respond to sounds like other kitties do, Justin and Erica noticed. They discovered she is deaf after taking her to the veterinarian. After a few weeks, her voice did return, therefore the moniker Whisper is no longer appropriate for her.

This four-year-old cat who has been perpetually surprised was not expected to survive

Kevin, a Russian blue just discovered in critical condition in a parking lot. The cat was taken urgently to the veterinarian, where the staff discovered that he was critically ill and believed he wouldn’t survive. The person who now looks for Kevin, Tailah, claims that Kevin was a helpless cat when he was taken to the veterinarian. He explains, “He would peck his meal so hard he’d basically nail his head against the floor.”

Kevin has hydrocephalus, a disorder brought on by too much fluid in the brain. Despite all odds, the cat managed to survive, but physicians were very certain that from that moment forward, he would experience seizures.

But the cat is in wonderful condition now, four years later. He doesn’t experience seizures, and he enjoys his life with his owner.

According to Tailah, he had a gut instinct that Kevin would live. The cat never left his side after they became immediately attached to one another. Now that Kevin is turning 4 years old, he is undoubtedly delighted to have Tailah at his side.

Only 4 weeks old, he was discovered in a dire circumstance in a parking lot.

He was transported to the veterinary clinic because he was different from other kittens and had a terrible medical issue.

His owner told Tailah, “His prognosis when he first arrived at the clinic was not positive at all.

He would physically smack his head on the floor while gnawing on the meal with such vigour.

“I was concerned that his vision was more worse than we first believed, yet he kept getting better!”

The main worry was that Kevin might have a seizure.

But four years later, he still hasn’t had one.

He is only allowed indoors.

Despite this, he has access to our side courtyard and a balcony with a castle and toys.

He is such a plaything!

Like any other cat, he makes laps around the house around two in the morning. He is also quite affectionate.

I had a gut instinct that he would turn out to be a miraculous kitten.

“…but I wasn’t sure if that was because I became linked to him within the first five seconds of meeting him.”

and was aware that I would be unable to let him go.

Taliah explained, “Kevin has hydrocephalus, a disorder that involves fluid on the brain.

Pregnant dog shares her space with the cat after she needs a place to give birth for safety

Despite the widespread belief that dogs and cats are antagonistic toward one another, some dogs and cats seem to get along fairly well while living together. They will become friends if you grow them together, but it rarely occurs in the wild. However, this video will demonstrate that it is feasible. In the video, a pregnant dog shares her space with the cat so the cat feels protected as it searches for a pot to give birth in.

A man who discovered the dog outside when she was pregnant gave her a doghouse. He built a little doghouse right away so the dog would be protected from the wind and rain. But when the man returned to check on the canine, He couldn’t have anticipated such a large surprise. In the doghouse, both animals were sleeping beside their puppies and kittens.

It appears that the expectant dog permitted the mother cat to enter the doghouse safely so she could give birth to her litter. Millions of people have watched the man’s video of the animals that he captured online.

The main character in the film commented, “How fantastic – the small dog gave birth to healthy pups on September 1 and a week later, the cat entered the doghouse and gave birth to a litter of cats.

Clearly in need of a safe place to give birth, the sad cat approached the dog, who gladly accepted her. “Some people might believe I’m telling lies, but the cats weren’t put inside. There are 3 puppies and 4 kittens; the area resembles a maternity unit. The cat and dog get along just well, which is the best part, the man remarked.

Despite the myth that cats and dogs are absolute enemies, this video shows that this is not the case.
