Cat Missing for 6 Years Comes Home For Christmas!


A cat that was missing for six years is finally home this Christmas. Her name is Taz who disappeared back in 2008 after their family cat Mia passed away.

Taz was nowhere to be found despite the family putting posters up and looking around for her.

On December 5, the family decided they were ready to adopt a kitten. They went on the Cats Protection website and one thing led to another, they were looking at adult cats that were needing homes.

When they came across a cat named “Babe,” they were in complete disbelief. Babe had the uncanny likeness to their cat Taz. “We couldn’t believe it. We had lots of pictures of her on the computer and she has really distinctive markings on her head,” said Val via the Visitor.

After many phone calls with the shelter, they agreed that it was their beloved Taz. “We arranged to go and collect her from the foster carer. My husband (Rob) has a really gravelly voice and she recognized it.

It was a really lovely reunion. We never had another pet since she went missing and we found her the first time we went on the website, it’s bizarre, a twist of fate.”

“Charlie (their 8 year old son) remembers her and he often used to talk about her. Gracie (their 4 year old daughter) is mad on animals and she is just over the moon,” she added.

“Rob was always more attached to Taz and he was over the moon as well.”

“What a Christmas present!”

Taz the cat vanished 6 years ago after their family cat Mia passed away. She was nowhere to be found despite the family putting posters up and looking around for her.

On December 5, the family decided they were ready to adopt. When they came across a cat named Babe on the Cats Protection website, they were shocked by the resemblance to their cat.  They knew right away It was their beloved Taz. When they finally met again, it was a lovely reunion.

Elsa The ‘Frozen’ Kitten Gets Adopted!


Remember Elsa the kitten found in freezing temperature in Denver? The story has a happy ending.

The little orange tabby has been adopted by none other than her foster dad who nursed the little ginger girl back to health.

Elsa’s temperature was so low that it didn’t register on a thermometer. The shelter workers of the Denver Dumb Friends League used blankets, heating pads and hair dryers to help her warm up.

When she was placed in the care of Jim Slater, who has fostered dozens of animals and is experienced in handling severe medical cases, he fell in love with little Elsa. “She was by far the sweetest kitten I’ve ever fostered,” said Jim. “She’s just amazing.”

“On Saturday, exactly one month after being rescued from the freezing cold and brought to our shelter, the Colorado kitten who ignited compassion around the world was adopted by the foster parent who nurtured her back to health after she suffered severe hypothermia. Elsa’s foster parent turned forever parent, Jim, also happens to be our 2014 Volunteer of the Year! We’re thrilled for both of them and couldn’t imagine a better fairytale ending,” The Dumb Friends League posted news of Elsa’s adoption at Facebook.

Now Elsa is a very happy kitty living with her older brother Blue the cat and the person who loves her to bits.

4-day Old Kitten, Nacho, Rescued From Underneath Porch


“Found an abandoned 4-day old kitten underneath our porch,” said Abbey via reddit. Her mother took in the tiny ball of fur and worked around the clock to help him survive.

They named him Nacho and the little ginger boy got bigger and stronger day by day.

“He’s doing awesome! He’s learned to go up and down stairs and how to eat/drink like a big boy and poop on his own! We’ve decided to keep him. My dad loves him so much, he’s going to get allergy shots so that he can stay around,” she added. (reddit)

Meet Nacho. He was just 4 days old when they found him underneath their porch.

Jesse The Wonder Cat


Jesse the ginger cat cannot use his back legs to walk, but he’s figured out a way to move around and nothing can stop this wonder cat. He loves life and especially his human companions.

“He is amazing. Best cat ever! He was thrown from a car as a kitten but still loves humans and would never hurt anyone. He loves to flirt with everyone,” said one of Jesse’s caretakers at the Cat Clinic of Chattanooga. 

Jesse is great with kittens. He’s been helping kitties coming into the clinic and providing them comfort and lots of playtime. “Jesse always hangs with kittens and other cats. In fact he loves kittens and playing.”

They made Jesse a wheel chair to help him navigate, but Jesse wanted to walk on his own. “He has a wheel chair but hates it. He can run and play just fine.”

Today Jesse is living at the clinic and being taken care by his human friends. He’s inspired so many with his story – despite his disability, Jesse is always so happy and living his life to the fullest.

Tiny Miracle Kitty with Huge Ears and a Big Heart.


Meet Eeyore, a small miracle kitty.

He is a shelter, throw away kitty turned in to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter, along with his cat mother and four siblings.

Here’s Eeyore’s story via his Facebook page: “I’m a small miracle. I wasn’t even 4 oz when Mom brought me home from work. My brothers were much larger and still are. I’m what they call, ‘the runt’. We all did fine for the first week… but one morning, Mom woke up, started her routine and came to check on us. I was on my side, seizing and barely breathing. I was almost gone.

Being so small, Mom didnt have much hope but tried everything she could: fluids, karo syrup and wrapping me in a heated towel and carrying me around. She was weary and expected me to be gone when she unwrapped the towel… BUT to her surprise, I popped up!

I had a severe hookworm infestation and it took a toll on me..I crashed 3 more times. Mom carried me everywhere, giving me fluids, special kitty milk, keeping me warm… you name it… every hour for a week. It was very touch and go, but a week later, things seemed to be turning in a positive direction.

That was the beginning of November and here I am. I am about 8-9 weeks old now and getting stronger everyday. I weigh 1.2 lbs and do almost everything a normal kitten does. That’s why Mom makes such a big deal about ‘my firsts’ and everything I do.

I’m what she calls, a Christmas miracle, and for that, I am grateful. I have been given a second chance and my goal is to bring joy and smiles to everyone I meet!”
