A Shelter Cat Gives A Person The Biggest Hug


A shelter cat named Tim started hugging a volunteer and wouldn’t let her go when they met at the Potsdam Humane Society in Potsdam, New York “Today I started crying at the animal shelter because one cat hugged me and nuzzled into my neck,” said Rachel Griggs via reddit.

“I’ve been volunteering at the Potsdam Humane Society, and last time I was there I held this one cat that instantly attached to me. He nuzzled into my neck and hugged me and kneaded his paws in my hair.” (via)

As a college student living on campus, she is not allowed to have pets in her dorm room, but the love and affection from the shelter cat has really touched her, and now she’s in the process of bringing the kitty to her mother’s home.

She was volunteering at the Potsdam Humane Society and a little tabby cat gave her the most affectionate hug.

Kitten Found In Near Freezing Temperature. Rescuers Refuse To Let Her Go


A tiny four-month-old ginger kitten was found in near freezing temperature by rescuers from the Denver Dumb Friends League. The kitten was so cold that her temperature did not even register on a thermometer, but the rescuers refused to let her go.

“You could sort of feel the cold coming off her,” said Dr. Kasey Carter, veterinarian who treated the kitten. (abc News)

When they brought in the tabby kitten, she was unresponsive. Staff members used hair dyers to warm the kitten’s fur, heating pads with mittens to keep her body and paws warm, a bear hugger which has a tube that blows in warm air to wrap her in, and even injected her with warm IV fluids.

“When she came into the shelter, we weren’t even sure if she was alive,” said Megan Rees of the Denver Dumb Friends League, but the kitten is a little fighter.

They named the kitten Elsa after the Disney character from Frozen for her “fighting, little spirit.”

Elsa is doing a lot better now. “We put some food in front of her and she immediately went for it, a little ravenous,” said Carter.

Cat And Duck Adopt Each Other


They are an unlikely pair. Both were adopted by Dr. Gary Spence at the Spence and White Veterinary Clinic in Tyler, Texas. Ever since they met, they haven’t missed their morning walk in two years. “They’re just, I mean, they’re buddies. Yea,” said Dr. Spence.

The two started their daily walk wandering the halls from the day Peepers arrived in the clinic. “Peepers came from, she belonged to two girls that were up at UT and this was going to be their apartment duck,” Dr. Spence said. However, it didn’t work out, so Peepers ended up at the clinic.

“I had an 8-month-old cat, Grayson, at the time, that adopted her.”

“They sleep together. They play together. she does this dance to her. That’s her little Grayson dance. And, I mean, they’re just best friends,” he added.

“The cat took the duck under his wing and raised her and they’re best friends.”

“There’s really some weird pairings that will occur. And, you know, this one needed a friend and Grayson needed a friend at the time and they just buddied up.”

Kitten Found In A Box Now Has A Home


Meet Nibble Bug. She was about 2-4 weeks old when she was found. “I found her in front of a Winn Dixie in a box,” said Nibble Bug’s rescuer via reddit.

“I have no idea what happened to her mommy, and I found her in a box by herself. It was a hot day and I didn’t have the heart to leave her, so I brought her home. For awhile I thought she was blind, seeing as she would just run into the wall and only come when she hears loud noises. But I’m proud to announce, she can see wonderfully! She just came off her formula and she’s been eating Kitten Wet Food. Super playful.”

Nibble Bug the rescue found her way into a new home and a comfy slipper.
