Kiki the 17 year old cat tells her new family how happy she is everyday to have a place to call her forever home!
“At 17 years old, Kiki was dumped at a shelter. We rescued her and now she tells us everyday how happy she is,” Kitty Adventure Rescue League wrote. “She really likes her new family here at KARL.”
Kiki’s previous owner passed away, and the family decided to drop her off at the shelter. “We couldn’t just let her stay there,” KARL wrote. “We run a sanctuary for special needs and geriatric cats. You’d be surprised how many people would rather dump the old cat at a shelter or on the streets…”
Luckily for Kiki, she will no longer stay at a shelter. Now she has a permanent home with humans that love her to bits.
On the day Kiki was rescued from the shelter.
On her way to her new home!
All settled down, Kiki loves it there!
Kiki now has a family that will love and care for her for the rest of her life!
“He was pretty far gone, and we didn’t know if he would make it,” said Alan Wilford to the Dodo. “He has taken a long time, but he has made a miraculous recovery.”
Russell needs constant medical attention for his recovery, but he’s done the unthinkable during his stay at the clinic. This friendly ginger cat has offered comfort to other animals in need of care.
“He’s incredible engaging. He wants to meet all our patients. He just wants to be with them,” Wilford said. “I don’t know if he can sense that other animals are in pain or have stuff going on, but he does seem to have some weird knack for connecting with patients, even when you wouldn’t think they would.”
“I think he helps other animals feel at ease. We’re a clinic, so I’m sure he helps alleviate their stress,” he said. “…he likes to be with other animals. And it’s not all about him. He really enjoys giving companionship to others.”
Russell may not be well enough to return to his former life, according to the clinic, but he will never be short of love.
“He’s adopted us,” Wilford said. “He’s a rock star here. Everyone wants to see him, and he just eats it up. I don’t know if he’d like being a normal house cat again, so we’d be happy to keep him as our clinic mascot.”
Russell giving his canine friends some comfort and love.
Two homeless kittens were taken in by a rescue dog who became the mother they never had.
Ms. Jackson is a rescue dog who has a big heart, especially for little foster kittens. She was adopted to a family that brings in foster kittens. When they brought back a pair of homeless kittens from the shelter, her motherly instinct kicked in and started cleaning and caring for them like a mother would. The kittens fell in love and began to nurse on their surrogate mom.
“She was letting them try to nurse this morning…it was too much,” said jeckhrdt via imgur.
Ms. Jackson’s new foster kittens. They are her babies now!
She’s very protective of them…
…and always keeps them by her side.
A very tolerant mama dog.
The kittens love to snuggle with their new mom…
…and climb on her head.
A hug makes everything better!
After a long day, they snuggle up for a nap together!
We don’t have an actual video of Ms. Jackson and her babies, but we can only imagine it might look something like this:
Share this beautiful mother’s love between two species!
Three young boys from Cape Coral, Florida saved three tiny kittens from a drainage pipe last Tuesday and have been caring for the fur babies since.
Racha Leasure’s two boys and their friend found the kittens soaking wet in the drainage pipe after Tuesday’s rain storms.
“Colin, his brother Steven and best friend Jaden came together to save the scared, wet and lonely kitties. After a good cleaning, a nice feeding and a lots of lovin’, newly named Grayson, Yoda & Simba finally huddle[d] up to sleep, purring harmoniously,” Racha wrote to WINK News.

A brave man stopped in the middle of a freeway to rescue a cat holding onto a metal fence while no one else wanted to do it.
A cat was seen clinging to a Valley freeway fence, meowing for help. Richard Christianson spotted the kitty and knew right away that he had to rescue the cat.
“It’s crazy how people just assumed this cat was hit by a car and was dead,” he posted on Facebook. Rescue groups told him that it was too dangerous to get the cat while car raced by around him. “(The cat) wasn’t dead or hit by a car, it was just stuck on the freeway …the cat was scared and dehydrated.” He decided to take the matters into his own hands.

Richard walked along the freeway himself to rescue the terrified cat. “He (looked) at me in total surprise and as if he was asking me to save him. The poor little guy seemed joyous and relieved to see me. There was no struggle whatsoever – he just went lump in my arms and started to purr,” Christianson told ABC15.
“I was presented a situation in life where I had the opportunity to help out a little (furry) friend who was in a bad jam in which I chose to take part in and help out,” he wrote. “As humans we all should look out for one another…. A life is a life… (Regardless) if it’s skin, fur, feathers, or scales.”
He named the cat Freeway and took him to the Arizona Humane Society for medical attention. After more than 30 days of recovery including two surgeries, this orange kitty was finally ready to go home with the person who saved him!
Freeway, an American Curl cat, has been through quite a lot. Christianson is willing to do whatever within his power to make Freeway feel comfortable and loved in his new home. “I’ve got too much invested in this baby to let him fail.” he said. (ABC15)
“A few seconds of kindness can last a lifetime,” he added.
Freeway home with his human and rescuer, Richard!
