Day-old Orphan Kitten Found At Historical Landmark


Maymie was found outdoors at a historical landmark called Batsto in Southern New Jersey. She was just a day or two old. Her mother never returned for her.

Maymie was so tiny that no one was sure if she would make it, but the little kitty was a fighter. “Coincidentally, my husband and I were looking for a kitten to adopt at the same time she was found, and we knew one of the workers at the park where she was rescued,” said Christina M. Carrell to Love Meow.

“She was bottle fed for several weeks before we could bring her home. She was named after the woman who owned the old historical general store where she was found.

Today, Maymie is almost a year old, vibrant, playful, and thrilled to have a mom and dad (and a little human sibling on the way) who love her so much,” Christina added.

Meet little Maymie. She was found at a historical landmark in New Jersey when she was just one or two days old.

Shelter Cat Picks His New Dad


Shelter cat picks his new dad.

“I adopted a kitten last week, and the shelter got a picture of our first meeting,” said Kyle via reddit.

They named him Mac. “Right now we call him Little Mac. The girlfriend says it’s for mathematician Colin Maclaurin (we’re both math teachers) but I say it’s for the Punch Out boxer,” he added. “He is adjusting very well. He gets along with the dogs great, and has tons and tons of kitten energy!” (Facebook)

“I pick you human.”

“Together We Can See The World”


When grandpa Horst walked into the Best Friends adoption center, a cat with only one eye caught his attention. Just like the cat, grandpa Horst can only see through one eye.

“Horst and Mimi bonded at the Best Friends Pet Adoption Center in Salt Lake City just a few weeks ago,” Best Friends Animal Society – Utah wrote. After meeting Mimi, he knew right away that that was the cat for him.

You can’t see out of your right eye, and I can’t see out of my left, but together we can see the world,” Horst said to his furry companion in his home in Colorado.

My grandfather and Mimi are truly happy together! I haven’t seen him this happy in years,” said Horst’s granddaughter Heather.

Nurse Turns House Into Sanctuary For Old, Sick Cats In Peru


A woman from Peru has turned her two-story house into a sanctuary for sick and old cats. She treats 175 cats for feline leukemia and keeps them warm in little jumpers when it gets chilly.

Maria Torero, 45, of Lima, Peru, has turned her eight-room house into a cat hospice and spends $1,785 a month on their care according to Daily Mail.

She has built bunk beds for the kitties and are sharing all the furniture in the house with the cats, and her three children.

“I’m a nurse. My duty is to the cats that nobody cares about. People don’t adopt adult cats, especially if they are terminally ill.”

Many street cats she finds in Lima’s streets are sick, flea ridden and malnourished. She takes in adult cats to avoid spreading of the disease to new generations. She gives them medicine, sterilizes them and treats them for parasites.

All the cats are given names and when it gets cold, she gives them little jumpers to keep them warm. She said “each cat has a distinct personality.”

“My best gift of love and respect I give them in life,” she added.

Woman Goes On A 2 Month Mission To Get Rescue Kitten From Greek Island To Britain


Squeak the Greek tabby cat found with half a tail and an injured leg has melted the heart of a woman from Britain. Ali Gill spent over £1,000 (over $1600) and started an international rescue mission to bring the kitty back to her home in Cornwall.

Ali met a little stray cat in an abandoned house, when she was traveling in the tiny island of Tilos in Aegean. The poor kitty was rejected by the mama cat and caught in a cat fight which left him with an injured leg.

Natacha, a French visitor, found the kitty and had been keeping him safe and treating his injury. “I arrived at the end of May for a holiday, and helped to feed him and I quickly fell for him,” said Ali. “He was very vocal as being playful, affectionate, plucky and determined to survive. He was amazing – right from the start, as soon as he saw me he started making this crying sound which is why I called him Squeak.” (Daily Mail)

“Despite his injuries he looked so lovely and healthy.” Ali knew right away that she wanted to find a good home for Squeak.

“The local people feed as many cats as they can, but they don’t believe in neutering them.” After visiting several potential homes for Squeak without luck, Ali realized how much she had grown attached to Squeak. She started calling airlines that would provide a service to transport pets. “The cost was high, but at least I knew he’d be safe, and would only have to endure a few hours of distress for a comfortable, healthy life.”

Ali went on a two month long rescue mission to fly the kitty back to her home in the UK. “Squeak the survivor made i through…. Now he’s settled in at our home. He’s very cuddly but still playful. He’s bigger and stronger, and the wound on his leg hasn’t healed completely but he no longer limps….”

“And after his long, complicated and expensive journey, he’ll have a good, healthy life where he won’t have to fight for food and shelter.”

Tiny Meowy Rescue Kitty: Then & Now


This is when little 3 week old rescue kitten just came to her new home.

Kitty is all grown up now. Fetch is her favorite game:

Tanzy The Brave Kitty


This adorable Siamese kitten Tanzanite (AKA Tanzy) was found when she was only two days old. It was soon apparent that Tanzy was unable to use her back legs due to injuries, but the little Siamese is a fighter and wouldn’t let it stop her.

The kitten found a haven of hope at Tabby’s Place: a Cat Sanctuary in Ringoes, NJ. Through a generous grant from Paws and Claws Society, Inc., Tabby’s Place was able to rescue tiny Tanzy – and to promise her the world-class, specialized care she would need.

Even in the midst of her struggle, Tanzy’s spark was bright. Now six weeks old, Tanzy has the confidence of a tiger, and a meow that sings to the world that she is here to thrive. Although she can’t walk, Tanzy moves as quickly as any kitten, using her strong front legs to motor along and play with friends.

Given Tanzy’s young age, the Tabby’s Place team is optimistic that physical therapy may help improve her mobility. They plan to outfit her with a custom-made mobility cart. Tanzy is excited about her next chapter in life.

Meet Tanzy the kitty. She was found unable to use her back legs due to injuries but that didn’t stop her.
