This Big Guy Rescues a Tiny Baby Kitten and Becomes Her Surrogate ‘Mom’


A big guy found a tiny baby kitten while he was looking at a property. “So I guess I’m a mommy, now,” Oklahoma Hoss writes via reddit.

He shares the story: “The place just had a hard rain the night before and the ground was muddy. As we’re standing on what I guess is the floor of a deck that was going to be built, she cocks her head to one side and asks me if I heard something. I tell her no, but she’s got much better hearing than I do.

I head back around the side of the house to check on the car and when I come back she’s holding what think is a wet sock.

I get there and see that it’s a baby kitten, barely moving. It’s wet, cold, covered in filth and (later we discovered small maggots while cleaning her up. Fortunately, it doesn’t seem that were eating on her, but just on her. Judging by the smell, I’m thinking her mommy and other kitten siblings must have met an unfortunate end before we got there, and had we not, she’d have been quick to follow).

We scooped her up in panic mode, drove to the nearest Kroger and grabbed a can of cat formula and a bottle, (we’ve actually been in this situation before, and the little fighter from before is now a 3 year old gray terror that we love).

We rush the baby home, get the formula in the bottle, warm it up, clean the baby as best we can under a gentle, tepid water spray in the kitchen sink.

I’m a really big guy so my belly makes the perfect warm shelf to put her on. So I bottle fed her while she was there. She didn’t want to take the nipple at all, but lately, with recent feedings, she seems to understand what it’s for and goes for it with gusto.

She/or he is quite a little fighter. She’s eating well, sleeping hard, as is to be expected after the day she had yesterday, and seems to be putting on weight and getting stronger.

The only thing I’ve noticed is what seems to be a birth defect. Her back right foot is much larger than the other, as though it’s swolen or a birth defect. But it doesn’t seem to bother her or slow her down as she tries to climb all over me.”

Moses the kitten became motherless at only a couple days old. He’s noisy, adorable, and his survival is a miracle. This is his story.

He was very hungry when they brought him home. They kept him warm and fed him around the clock. After a lot of hard work and love, Moses was brought back to health and started to thrive!

“This is Moses, filling up on kitten formula. He was orphaned just a few days after birth, and just opened his eyes the day before this.”

Moses loves the sound of the water running in the kitchen because he knows that his food is soon to come. This is what happens when he becomes impatient.

Stray Cat Brings Her Kittens to Family for Help


A stray cat who had been living in a burnt down house, came to a family nearby looking for help for her and her two little surprises!

About a month after the house burnt down, a ginger cat started showing up at the house next door looking for food. “(She) was extremely thin and covered in fleas, we couldnt beleive how friendly she was!” Luleymoon writes via YouTube. They named the cat Ginger.

“We took her to the vet to get de-flead and see if she had a microchip, unfortunately she didnt have one and after putting up flyers noone came for her, she also smelt strongly like smoke and had black ash on her so we guessed she was going into the burnt down house.

We noticed she had a swollen belly and engorged nipples, so we assumed she was pregnant, or had had kittens, but with no way of knowing there was not much we could do but make sure she was safe.

About 2 weeks later the house next door was due to be demolished the next day so we knew we had to keep Ginger in the house in case she was living in the burnt down house. We were waiting all day for her to arrive and when she finally did you can imagine our surprise when she brought in a little bundle of ginger joy!

We were a bit shaken up, but she made herself at home in my sister’s sock draw and nestled in, about an hour later when we weren’t looking she went outside and we had a few hours before dark so we weren’t too worried, but when she came back in she had ANOTHER baby! and this one had a badly infected eye.

I think its a small miracle that somehow she knew to bring her kittens into our home, which she had grown to trust, the very night before the demolition,” she adds.

They brought the furry family to foster care and helped them find a loving home that they so deserved!

Ginger and her kittens nestled in the drawer.

Two Rescue Cat Mamas Raise Their 12 Kittens Together!


It’s raining kittens at Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA)! Rescue sister cats Kanji and Sushii recently gave birth to twelve little furballs! The two wonderful cat moms are raising their babies together. What a team!

“These mamas are inseparable and share duties caring for their newborns (such as nursing),” VOKRA writes at Facebook.

Kanji and Sushii have been inseparable since day one. They were together when they were pregnant and they are taking care of each other’s fur babies now.  “The mothers are SO loving to each other. They groom each other and nurse each other’s kittens interchangeably. Another bonus, when 1 mother needs a break, the other can be on duty,” said Elaine R. at Facebook.

“We always work hard to adopt bonded pairs together. These mamas sure are a great team, aren’t they?” VOKRA added.

Meet Kanji and Sushii the sister cats. They recently gave birth to 12 kittens and are raising them together.

Kit the Super Cat Mom Helps Abandoned Newborn Puppies. But That’s not All!


Kit is a super mom who recently adopted four abandoned newborn puppies and gave them a chance to survive and thrive. But that’s not all.

The tiny Chihuahua puppies were found in a box on a car in the West Valley City, Utah. The woman who discovered the puppies saw a note on the box indicating that the puppies were motherless.

When she took the puppies to the shelter for help, the staff decided to put them with a surrogate cat mom to try to save their lives.

“The puppies would not have survived into the night without food, so we’re lucky that the woman found them on her car when she did,” Deann Shepherd of Humane Society of Utah told Fox13.

With help from Kit the cat mom whose kittens had been adopted, the puppies all made it through the night and are now getting care and lots of bottle feeding from the volunteers.

Now Kit is taking care of a new litter of orphan kittens that need some motherly love. When the kittens were introduced to their new mom, she took to them right away and started nursing the little ones like her own.

Though Kit is a super mom at the shelter, she is also looking for a forever loving home for herself.

Meet Colin the Little Rescue Runt! He is Small in Size But Big in Heart!


Meet Colin the runt of his litter orphaned when they were three days old. He is much smaller than his age, but what he lacks in size, he makes up with his personality!

“He is the sweetest little guy,” said Amy Bender, fosterer of Central Oklahoma Humane Society and pet mom of Sauerkraut the cat.

“Colin and his three siblings came to us as foster kittens through Central Oklahoma Humane Society. Their mother rejected them at three days old, so we have been bottle raising them.

Colin is the ‘runt’ of the group, and my personal favorite (shhhh, don’t tell the other kittens). He’s about five weeks old, but developmentally he’s closer to three and a half weeks. I’m hoping he’ll ‘catch up’ once he’s weaned, but even if he doesn’t, he’s still special.”

Little Colin and his siblings will be available for adoption, once they are big enough.

“Colin loves snuggling and play fighting with his sister Enya, though most of the time he bites off way more than he can chew!”
