A rescue tabby cat mom gave birth to a tiny kitten at Mosaic Feline Refuge just a couple days ago. She was brought into the shelter pregnant by 2 good samaritans so that she could be safe, warm and fed. The shelter thought the mom cat would have a litter of furballs, but only a small velvet black and silver marble tabby came out. “Josie is a wonderful mama who had baby nursing before clean up, purrsing appreciatively when we’ve petted her and given her tummy rubs,” the shelter wrote on Facebook.
They waited till the next day, but no more kittens were given birth. Later the vet confirmed that Josie was pregnant with only one kitten. As soon as her baby made his entrance, she gave the tiny one all the love and care she could supply.

A cat is credited for saving a family’s home from fire. Mr. Meowy is the hero in this story. He is a foster cat taken in by the Rinauro family of Jones County, Mississippi. “Sal Rinauro, 30, describes himself as someone who isn’t an animal person. Reluctantly, he and his wife, Kayti, decided to take in a foster cat… from animal rescue group Macon Purrs N’ Paws. But their 7-year-old son, Brendon, convinced them,” reported The Telegraph.
Brendon fell in love with the white cat and begged for him to stay. The family then brought him into their foster home, but what they didn’t know was that Mr. Meowy returned their kindness by saving their home.
It was a Sunday, Sal and Brendon left home for a Super Bowl party. Kayti and her 2-year-old son, Jacob also were headed to the grocery store. But as Kayti was about to leave, she “remembered she had forgotten to leave a light on for the cat,” so she went back inside only to find out Mr. Meowy, normally a quiet cat who hardly purrs or meows much, meowing aloud from Brendon’s room. It immediately alerted Kayti and she decided to check on him.
“She smelled smoke and found Mr. Meowy in the room where a small pillow had fallen from Brendon’s bunk bed and landed on an Atlanta Braves night light.” (The Telegraph) The pillow just started to burn. Thanks to Mr. Meowy, a potential house fire was prevented.
“We were not necessarily looking to adopt, but my son and Mr. Meowy connected immediately. We were just going to foster him for a little while. Now, he’s not going anywhere,” said the family.
Mr. Meowy saved the house Sal’s grandmother passed down, and also turned Sal into an animal person. Mr. Meowy and Brendon have been inseparable since day one. He became a little guardian angel for his little human friend. It is like his way of telling Brendon “Thank you for taking me into your home.”

Kisses was only 2 weeks old when she came into the shelter without a mom or siblings. The little orphaned baby was brought to her foster mom in a shirt. “I saw her adorable little face, her bright eyes, and pudgy belly and was instantly smitten! I couldn’t help but take her home,” said Kitten in My Pocket. It was then Kisses found her second chance at life.
“Kisses was off to a slow start, being orphaned so young, and it took her a bit to pack up the ounces. But after a few weeks she was developing into an adorably pot bellied little angel.”

A litter of tiny gray kittens were given a second chance at life before they were even born.
The owner of the mother cat wasn’t interested in having the kittens, and unwilling to let the cat mom give birth and found a vet to do the spay-abort. ”Apparently the mama was someone’s pet, and unspayed, and they were getting help from the SPCA to get a low-cost spay done,” said Kimberly Jennery from Bitten By A Kitten Rescue, a small rescue group in San Pablo, California. The vet who handled this case really tried to arrange it so that it allowed the mother to give birth, but the owner didn’t want the kittens, so Kimberly came to the rescue and took in the litter of six.
“They are getting fatter by the minute and turning into real little kitten persons! They are 4 boys, and 2 girls.”

These foster kids and their mom were taken in by Toronto Cat Rescue and just arrived in their foster home a couple days ago. They were a bit shy, cuddling up in the crate, but it didn’t take long for the little ones to come out and play. A comfortable home makes them very happy kitties.
