Kind Man Rescues a Kitten Stuck in a Jar


A kind man spotted a kitten that needed help. The little kitten was thankful for what he did.

“I found stray cats rummaging through my trash. They scattered, but one tiny kitten was left behind, with her head stuck inside a glass jar of bacon grease. She was soaking wet, which led me to believe she’d been stuck in the jar all night during the rainstorm,” cobysev writes via imgur.

“I rushed her to the nearest animal hospital… and they managed to get the jar off her head. They also had to warm her up, as her core body temperature was dangerously low. She was exhausted and spent the car ride home napping.”

“Despite being a stray, she was quite affectionate. I named her Bacon Bit, after a suggestion from a friend. She’s quite the curious one.”

“Finally got her to eat. Despite being a tiny kitten, she wolfed down a lot of food.”

“She’s about 8 weeks old and adapting to domestic life just fine after a couple days.”

“She’s very loving and a shoulder-sitter.”

Pancake the Two Legged Wonder Cat Doesn’t Think She’s Any Different


Meet Pancake the two legged wonder cat. She was born with just two hind legs, but Pancake never thinks she’s any different.

Pancake’s mom shares her story at Facebook: “She was born in a litter of kittens, and she only had two back legs. I was told it was a struggle finding a home for her. I immediately said I wanted her and by Friday that week I had her.

When she came home with me she was 8 weeks old, and she wasn’t very active. She spent most of her first week on her back, looking up at us. When I fed her I spoon fed her because she didn’t (wasn’t able to?) roll over to her tummy. She would wake up in the middle of the night, a few times a night, so hungry. So I would get up and feed her. She very quickly started moving around and standing up though. And she hasn’t stopped since!

The day I got her my sister noticed that she has a third leg, the front left one, that is restricted by the skin. I took her in for a vet appointment and scheduled her spay and shots, and asked about the leg. He says that it should be easy to correct, and he will do that during her spay surgery. However, he says that she may not be able to use her leg fully. Even if it’s not fully functional he says it should help with mobility and play. She already tries to use it a lot when she’s running around the house and playing. Her tail is deformed as well, that is why it is shorter and has an irregular bone growth at the end, which you can feel. The vet says that won’t be an issue for her. At that first vet appointment, four days after I got her, she weighed less than a pound. She was so teeny!

As far as naming her went, the few days before I got her I called her Teenysauraus Rex (inspired by pictures of Mercury running and playing!). And then I wanted to call her Chicken because it’s a term of endearment used by one of my best friends. Then I wrote out a whole list of names, which most were food related. Sausage, Kimchi, Dumpling, etc. I picked Pancake because it was the cutest. Pancakes are fluffy! I thought it fit well.

‘You’re sure you want to read this?’

She stands up to play. She jumps on my bed! She eats a lot. She uses a litterbox. She likes to sleep on the bed with me. She chews on books. She likes to attack feet. I think she does things most any cat would do. Some people that see her for the first time say that it is heartbreaking that she can’t do this or that. I can understand that, however I don’t feel the same way anymore. Seeing how far she has come in such a short period of time is actually exciting.

She doesn’t know she isn’t like other cats. She is just being a cat the only way she knows.”

All grown up now! “Pancake has great balance. She can sit like this very well if she’s trying to see something or play with something. Her preferred sitting technique is on shoes, still.”

Stowaway Cats Saved by Sailors Find Foster Care in the US


A young cat mama stowed away aboard a foreign ship sailing from Algeciras, Spain to Houston, hoping to find a better life for her soon-to-be-born kittens.

“This sly and brave mama found her way into a pallet of food that was loaded onto a launch boat (a small vessel that delivers food and supplies to large vessels offshore) and transferred to the Houston-bound ship. Despite her bright orange coat, she managed to slip onto the ship’s deck without notice as the launch was unloaded,” Friends of League City Animal Shelter wrote in a news release.

When the crew members spotted the orange and white cat on St. Patrick’s Day, she was very weak and soaking wet from a storm.

“After she was dried off and made comfortable, to the surprise of the crew, she gave birth to a beautiful orange and white kitten–a miniature version of herself. The insightful crew members decided to go out into the storm to check the area where she had been found in case there were additional babies. Sure enough, three more tiny kittens were found—wet and cold. They were hustled inside, dried off and placed in a comfortable towel-lined box that was warmed by a lamp. Here mama Frederica took over the care of her tiny charges.”

By the time the ship docked at the Port of the Houston, the crew had fallen in love with the furry family.

“They wanted the American dream for them,” said Monica Millican of the Friends of League City Animal Shelter.

With help from the rescue organization, the cat mother, Frederica and her kittens Bravo, Zulu, Juliet, and India, are now living in the foster care in Millican’s ‘cat room.’

The only request from the crew is that the kittens retain their names, to remind their new humans that they crossed an ocean to find a new life.

“They have a great story that should be passed along.”

Missing Cat Reunited with His Human After Fire Thanks to Neighbors’ Help


Cashew the cat who went missing after a fire Monday at an apartment building in the Plateau section of Montreal, Canada, has been reunited with his human thanks to the kind neighbors that found and rescued him.

Casey Kerr’s girlfriend works at an animal shelter and often brings home rescue cats to care for them.

On the day of the fire, they had eight cats in the apartment. Five of them had been rescued, and they had been looking for the missing three cats.

When Isaac Berman, a neighbor came to check on the building after the fire, he spotted a cat on the second floor balcony. Immediately he decided to help.

“It was a miracle. The kitty cat came out onto the balcony,” he said. “Now we have to save the cat!”

Berman received help from his friends from across the street. He managed to get into the second floor apartment and safely got the ginger cat out. The kitty was in good shape, but terrified.

“We gained his trust with snacks and then put him in a cat cage to bring him down,” Isaac said.

Isaac’s friend Raluca Mantu who lives across the street from the burnt building took the cat into her home. “I fed him, I gave him water and then I made posters to print and post around the building in case the owner would come look for the cat,” she said.

Yesterday morning while Casey was speaking with a police officer about his missing cat, Raluca saw them and told Casey that she had his cat.

“[Casey] was actually shaking and he was hugging the cat, and the cat was very happy,” Mantu said. “It was really emotional, really nice.”
