Pirate The Tripawd Miracle Kitty


Meet Pirate, a 3-legged miracle kitty who was left in a garden by his mother at just a few days old but the little brave guy didn’t let it stop him.

Pirate and Peg were the only kittens that survived out of the litter of six. “They both had a paw missing and we think that their poor feral mum accidentally bit it off when biting the umbilical cord, she must have been very scared and anxious and wasn’t seen again.”

A nice lady discovered the kittens and contacted Goldie’s Cat Rescue who immediately took in Pirate and Peg. “Three volunteers started taking turns to bottle feed them every two hours during the day and night! Both kittens had badly infected legs and they had to be washed daily to help with that,” Madden said. Unfortunately Peg passed away two weeks later, leaving little Pirate on his own.

“Everyone was devastated, but every week little Pirate got stronger and his leg healed. At 6 weeks old we started fostering another kitten to try and teach him how to be a kitten. He learnt within a day to use the litter tray by himself and how to eat from a bowl. It took a few more weeks to teach him how to drink from the bowl…” All the hard work paid off when Pirate finally picked up all the skills he missed learning from his own mother.

“He didn’t understand how to play at first and would cry as soon as the kitten would pin him to the floor, but soon he was playing like a normal kitten.” Pirate has grown extremely close to his foster parents and loves to snuggle up in bed with them. “He definitely thinks he is human!”

At the end of January, Pirate will have an operation to have his leg fixed up to prevent injuries and pain. “He is an amazing little kitten, full of attitude and we are sure he will bounce back from his operation,” Madden added.

Little Pirate was found along with his brother Peg in a garden when they were just a few days old.

Homeless Cat Finds Love And Home


Mr. Tickles the ginger lived the street life for years. He had been through the toughest winters. “When they found him the top of his ears had frozen off because of the cold and his paws were cracked and bleeding. Also the fur was very dirty and knotted. He’s fine now, but his ears look a bit funny,” said his human Luticus.

When the animal rescue group that took in Mr. Tickles was looking for someone to foster the ginger cat, they found Luticus who told them she had no age or gender preferences when it comes to fostering. “A week later they emailed me and said there was a cat for me,” she said via Kitty Army.

It took a few months for Mr. Tickles to come out of his shell. But when he finally ran up to his foster mom when she called his name, it was so rewarding that she knew there was no way she could let him go.

“When I come home from work he is waiting by the door and kind of puts his front paws up on my legs and purrs. So I pick him up and he grabs me around the neck and just strokes his face against mine whilst purring for like 15 minutes. It’s awesome.”

Mr. Tickles lived the street life for years and weathered many treacherous winters. He lost parts of his ears due to frost bites and paws were in bad shape, but the handsome fella has really come around since he was rescued and given a second chance at life.

It took him months to come out of his shell and accept his foster home. When that happened, it was the most rewarding thing to his humans.

Cat Mother And Her Seven Kittens


This lovely feral cat went into labor and gave birth to nine babies when they found her. Seven of the kittens thrived.

“Livia was one of several cats who were being fed by a woman. A neighbor stepped in to have the cats spayed and neutered. On September 5th, while she was sitting at the North Alabama Spay Neuter Clinic in Huntsville, waiting to be spayed, Livia went into labor. She ultimately gave birth to 9 kittens, but 2 of them didn’t make it. On September 17th, Livia and her 7 kittens came to us. Carmela, Dr. Melfi, Meadow, and Adriana are girls. Tony, Silvio, and Paulie Walnuts are boys,” said Robyn Anderson on her blog.

Foster Kitten Looks Like An Elf


He was rescued by his fosterer from a shelter. When they saw him, the tiny kitty was dirty and messy, but with a bath, food and a lot of love, the little one really came along.

Foster parent wrote on reddit: “He’s only 4 weeks old. I got a call from one of my friends who runs a rescue organization saying that she needed someone to pick him up from the city animal shelter by 6 yesterday or he’d be euthanized, and she promised she could come get him from me on Friday. Well, I went to pick him up, and he was just the tiniest, most pitiful mess of fur and bones. However, after a quick bath, he is simply stunning!

He follows me around everywhere I go. I seriously think I am going to keep him… he’s just too endearing.”

“Captain” Sir Stuffington The Kitten – A Raccoon Attack Survivor


Meet Sir Stuffington, an one eyed kitty who survived a raccoon attack and was saved by a kind person along with his 2 brothers. “His feral litter was attacked by a raccoon, mom and one baby didn’t make it,” said his foster mom.

When he was turned into Multnomah County Animal Services, they discovered that he had calicivirus, a severe flea infestation, a heart murmur, a missing eye and a possible jaw fracture that has since healed. He was left with a smile resembling a pirate – a cute pirate that he is.

Sir Stuffington the kitty is a raccoon attack survivor and cute as a button.
