Three Little Wobblers – Groot, Gamora, and Nova

“As soon as we brought them home, we knew there was something special about Groot, Gamora, and Nova. From their stubby little tails to their “drunken sailor” walks, they were quick to steal our hearts,” said Jennifer MacMillan of Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA).

“The kittens and their momma were left at a local pet store. A kind man named Bob brought the family home to care for, but then when the kittens were about 5 weeks old their momma cat became ill and stopped nursing the babies. Since VOKRA has so many excellent bottle feeders, the kittens came to us to be bottle fed! They quickly put on weight, developing the cutest little tummies. Once they were feeling better, they started exploring their new digs and haven’t looked back since,” she added.

“There are several conditions that can cause kittens to have the “wobblies”. Cerebellar hypoplasia occurs when the momma cat is ill during pregnancy and the development of the kitten’s cerebellum is affected leading to balance and coordination issues. Spina bifida (associated with manx kitties) affects the development of the spine and spinal cord, often causing hind end weakness. They are non-degenerative conditions, so their condition won’t deteriorate, and most cats get stronger and learn to compensate for their weaknesses as they get older.”

These kitties are such spunky little ones with a love for life. “Despite their mobility issues they get where they want to go – they were even some of my quickest fosters when it came to learning how to use the litter box! The next step was getting them to eat on their own.”

They invented a method to help the kitties eat. “At first they were very skeptical about eating off of a plate and insisted on being hand fed. One morning I was sitting with the kittens feeding them one at a time – and if you’ve ever heard a hungry kitten you’ll know they aren’t too patient about waiting their turn – and I knew that I had to come up with a way for them to eat all at once. I saw the empty cat food boxes sitting on the floor and decided to put them to good use as ‘dining tables’.”

Kitten Found In Parking Lot Becomes Most Loving Cat


“I was working at a vegetarian restaurant downtown. A customer came in and told us there were some baby kittens in the parking lot (really, it was just a dirt lot next to the restaurant),” said Adriana via reddit. “Our manage went and put them in a box behind the restaurant. It used to be a house, so they were in a fenced in, grassy area.

No one could take this last little guy, so I did despite knowing that my family wouldn’t be happy.”

When she was told that the kitten might not survive, Adriana didn’t give up hope. “When I took him to the vet they told me that he was two weeks old and likely wouldn’t live. Not because he was ill, but because he was so young, and I don’t think the vet had confidence in me. I had to fee him every 4 hours, and make him poop/pee in the first few weeks but he is super healthy and happy now. He constantly want to be held, and likes to sit on my shoulder when I’m up. His name is Oatmeal,” she added.

Oatmeal became very affectionate with Adriana. “We bottle fed him and he didn’t really know his mom.” Adriana became the kitten’s surrogate mom.

“I’m so glad to have him! Even though my family initially didn’t want him, they really wouldn’t be happy without him, now,” she said.

Meet Oatmeal. He was found in a parking lot outside a vegetarian restaurant. “No one could take this last little guy, so I did despite knowing that my family wouldn’t be happy,” said Adriana.

Palmer The Kitty Journey To Forever Home


Meet Palmer the kitty, who was still a baby when they found him on the street. This is his journey to his forever home.

“In April, I received an email from a woman who was handed a kitten by a young boy in her neighborhood. He got him from a man handing out kittens from a box on the street, and placed him in her palm on Palm Sunday. This is how Palmer got his name,” said Stephanie Seiler of Big City Little Kitty.

“He was only a couple of days old. He weighed 4 ounces, and still had his umbilical cord attached. Tigra (the cat) gave him a thorough examination.”

“Luckily, he latched on to the bottle very quickly, and I don’t think I’ve ever had a kitten who ate as well as he did. He took his food seriously (and I think he still does).”

” I kept him full, clean,”

“He spent a lot of time at my office, and my coworkers co-fostered him! When I had to be in class, they all stepped up to feed him and snuggle him! Here he is in his kitten sling with auntie Billie.”

Joy Of Fostering


After all the exploring kitty did with his human friend, he was pretty hungry.

“I was just babysitting for a little bit! This was at my mom’s office and her coworker fosters kittens. She was telling me how she had to get up in the middle of the night, just to feed these little guys when they were only days old (six weeks in the picture I posted),” said EdgarAlanPwnd of reddit.

“We have a young mommy cat named Margo and her four, one-month old kittens. All are grey, with various levels of floofiness. The shelter said there are two ‘girls’ and two ‘boys,'” said the foster mom via instagram.

Litter of Six Rescue Kittens


An employee from a nursing home brought in a basket full of six goopy-eyed kittens to get help. The mama cat made a home near a hay bale that was later removed. “Once the hay bale was gone, the momma started hissing at the wee kittens and refusing to feed them,” said Jean, animal rescuer and fosterer.

They scooped up the kittens and got them help. “Thankfully, my foster family that homeschools three kids agreed to take these squirming furballs. All were treated with antibiotics and deemed to otherwise be in good health. They were fed every four hours around the clock until transitioned to eating on their own,” Jean added.

“Being handfed, these little ones ADORE humans. They long to be held.”

This litter of six goopy-eyed kittens are cuddling with their foster mom.
