Tiny Feral Kitten Saved by Three Firefighters


A tiny feral kitten found herself trapped in a hole on a deck. Three firefighters worked as a team to carefully pull the little furry kitten out to safety.

“I woke up hearing a tiny meowing. I went outside to discover a tiny grey kitten had gotten trapped in a hole on my deck. There is hole though the decking to run electrical cords or whatever. Apparently, she poked her head into the hole and then couldn’t back out,” said Annette Lusk via News 4.

“I called Sparks non-emergency dispatch and the the dispatcher said she would contact Sparks Fire Dept. The extrication took over an hour and included prying up the adjacent deck board and then cutting into the board where ‘Trapper’ (newly named and adopted) was trapped – hence her name. After a trip to the vet, she is shaken up but none the worse for her adventure.”

“Curiosity could have killed this kitten but for the wonderful guys from Fire Station 2. They are from left to right: Fire Apparatus Operator Manny Souza, Firefighter Joe Van Walraven and Captain Sean Holbrook.”

“This little girl somehow got her head caught in an open cable hole in my deck on Tuesday September 2nd. The wonderful firefighters of Sparks Nevada Fire Station 2 spent over an hour to get her out including having to pry up part of my deck in order to safely cut her out.”

“I think she entered this world as a feral kitten but she is now become a member of my home and joined her new ‘fur sisters and a fur brother’ She is ruling the roost, purring nonstop and demanding lap time! (And sometimes she sleeps!)” (via Cuteoverload)

Kitten Found In A Wheel Well By Workers


A tiny ginger kitten was rescued from a vehicle’s wheel well at a Canadian oil refinery by the workers there. “She was found in a wheel well of a vehicle at work this morning, hiding from a hungry fox,” said an employee via reddit.

“For several weeks lately a fox has been showing up at night in the parking lot and some of the workers have been feeding it scraps of food. Anyway, a worker reported that they could hear a cat in the parking lot and thought it might have been locked in someone’s car. My co-worker went to investigate and found the poor little kitten up in the wheel well; the fox was nearby looking for hand-outs so we assumed that the kitten was cornered and crying for help…”

“She found an awesome home with a lady that works on our site,” he added. “Her new owner left work at noon and the first stop was the vets office…She’s an animal lover and wants to be sure that it’s not chipped and that she’s healthy.”

Cabbie Stops In Traffic To Save Kitten On Highway


A taxi driver stopped in traffic to rescue a kitten stuck in the middle of highway. When Bill Cannon, co-owner of Beech Street Taxi, was driving home, he saw a little ginger kitten stuck in traffic on the Van Wyck Expressway in Queens.

“I was going by slow enough that I could hear it crying,” he said to WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola [Play the radio report below].

“I stopped and jumped out and grabbed it and put it in the car. It was ready to jump into traffic when I jumped out of the car.”

He called his wife, Renee, before bringing the kitten home. “I said, ‘You’re either going to love me or you’re going to hate me,” he said.

When he got home with the kitten, they all fell in love. “I’m not allowed to give it away.”

The kitten hid under the dashboard from the passenger seat. It took them about two hours, some cat food and removing part of the dashboard to get the kitty out of the car according to Kosola.

They named the kitten Autumn and took him to the vet for a checkup. “The cat’s nose was bloody and we washed that up and it seems OK,” Cannon said. “(Autumn’s) just kind of limping around a little bit.”

Marco The Rescue Cat Gets A Happy Ending


Marco the little kitten was only half the size of his siblings when he was found. It’s amazing how far he’s come.

“Marco was rescued by Annie, of Kitty Loft. He was 1 of 5 kittens nursing from a mama who had a broken leg and only weighed 4 lbs. Needless to say, their mom was not providing her FIVE kittens with the nutrients they desperately needed, so the kittens had a rough start. 2 did not make it, 2 did very well and Marco was in bad shape. He was half the size (14 oz) of his sisters (30 oz) and not eating at all,” said Stephanie from Big City Little Kitty. “I asked if I could take him for a bit as I can take him to work and provide round the clock care, syringe feeding and a close eye. It worked!”

“Here he is at my office with his napkin bib on for a syringe feeding, one of his most famous photos”

“Marco was soon eating on his own and thriving! He quickly mastered the art of snuggling and his cuteness level was through the roof!”

Rescue Ginger Kitten Adopted By Litter Of Kitties


When a rescue ginger kitten, who desperately needed friends, was introduced to a litter of kittens, he became the happiest kitty he could be.

“PW was a singleton who’d been at the shelter for a few weeks, and desperately needed to be around other kittens his own age,” said Robyn Anderson via Love and Hisses. “Ralph, Trader Joe, Von and Winn Dixie were a litter born at a vet’s office, and were about a week younger than PW.”

Robyn knew they would make the perfect siblings for PW.

PW was found at a grocery store. “PW came to us prenamed – so named because he was found at a Piggly Wiggly – and so we went with grocery store names as our naming theme,” Robyn added.

Now PW can’t get enough of playtime with his new fur friends. “They’re sweet, friendly, extremely playful kittens, and after some initial hissiness between PW and the other four, they get along great and play together like crazy.”

Meet PW, a tiny ginger kitten found at a grocery store (Piggly Wiggly). He was at the shelter for a few weeks, desperately needed friends.

Trixie The Rescue Kitten Given A Second Chance


This is the face that Lorene saw when she met the little orphan kitten named Trixie at the shelter, waiting for a foster home.

“About a week ago someone is Osler found a kitten who was abandoned by her mother. The kitten was about two weeks old. I was at the SPCA and wasn’t really intending to foster because we still have Paige (another rescue cat they care for) in the basement,” said Lorene of Saskatoon SPCA.

But when she saw those eyes looking at her…. “And now we have Trixie in a large enclosure upstairs!”

“Shelter staff had hoped she was old enough to eat solid food, but that just gave her the runs. After some kitten milk replacer her problems cleared up, but it was definitely bath time,” Lorene added.

“So far Trixie’s life has mostly been eat, burp, sleep. We’ve very recently added some playtime in there after eating, because she’s getting more active.”

Trixie is getting a lot of love and cuddles from her foster mom.  “We have a little pillow that contains a sound chip that makes a heartbeat sound, and that seems to keep her from getting lonely.”
