Meet Ham! A Tiny Kitten Strays His Way into His Forever Home


Meet Ham, a tiny stray found without a mom. They nursed him back to health and found him a forever home.

Ham’s rescuer wrote: “I live in North Philadelphia, so there’s bound to be stray cat everywhere. I was on my way to a friend’s house when I heard him from a staircase, he was too small to get down the steps on his own, my guess is that his mom brought him up there and hadn’t gotten back.

I brought him inside but we had to wrap him up in towels because he was an absolute flea bag, his belly was covered in dried blood from the flea bites, it was really so sad.

But we were able to give him baths, and bottle feed him until he was old enough to be weened off of the milk and live with someone else.

But he’s big and warm and happy in a home in delaware now, so I guess everything worked out the way it was supposed to.” (reddit)

When they met Ham, he was the size of a can.

Tiny Roadside Rescue Kitten Nina: Journey to Forever Home


Little Nina was 5 weeks old when they found her on the side of the road. It’s amazing what a little food, warmth and love can accomplish.

“We found her on the side of the road in Cleveland Ohio, covered in mud and getting splashed by cars. I picked her up with intentions of nursing her back to health. The vet was kind enough to give me a free exam, which was enough to tell me that she has a severe upper respiratory infection and extreme malnutrition. Her eyes were glued shut with yellow gunk when I found her. And the vet told me that she thought she was about 5 weeks old, but was the size of a 3 week old kitten,” said Nina’s rescue mom. (Instagram)

They managed to raise enough fund to pay for Little Nina’s medical bills. Today, Nina’s grown into a beautiful kitty cat. It’s amazing how far she’s come!

Stray Cat Mama and Her Kittens Turn a Family’s Backyard into Their Kingdom


A stray cat in Australia decided to make a family’s backyard her new home for her and her kittens. After she gave birth, the backyard became their little kingdom.

“A stray cat gave birth in my backyard, so now I have these cuties living in it,” said the property owner. (reddit)

“When they’re old enough, someone from the WLPA is going to come and collect them, and rehome them. At the moment, the mother is still around and we’re feeding her. The WLPA will desex her as well.”

“We’ve named them Sam, George (or Georgie for a girl), Tom, Adam, Isaac and Lote, and the mum is Madge.”

A stray cat decided to settle down in a family’s backyard. After she gave birth, they turned the backyard into their little kingdom.

102-Year-Old Woman Fell In Love With A Shelter Cat


A 102-year-old woman found her a little companion, a 2-year-old shelter cat, when she held him in her arms for a photo.

“It just filled my heart,” Barbara Bates, the adoption coordinator of Montgomery County Animal Shelter said. “The kitty just snuggled right up to her. Matched her outfit she had on.” (Huffington Post)

“I said, ‘Iona, do you mind if I take your picture? And she said, ‘Honey, I sure hope I don’t break your camera.'”

Iona recently lost her cat that she had had for 10 years. Her son took her to the shelter last week. “I needed a companion,” she said.

When she cuddled with Edward, she was smitten.

“The way he cuddled upon my shoulder reminded me of the cat I’d just lost,” she said. “Oh my, he’s very happy.”

Iona’s son promised to take care of Edward and he would remain a member of the family should anything happen to his mother.

“My photo tells me Edward immediately sensed that Iona had lots of love and security to offer him,” Bates added.

“To me, an animal gives you life, that a person can’t, or material things can’t,” Bates said. “You come home from a stressful day, and they want to kiss on you. It just makes everything bad go away. So it just touched my heart. And I’m just glad that what I felt came out in the photo.”

Iona, a spry 102-year-old, found her a great companion, Edward the shelter cat. She fell in love when she held him in her arms for a picture. “The way he cuddled upon my shoulder reminded me of the cat I’d just lost.”

A Boy Found a Stray Cat in a Rusty Boat. 13 Years Later, They are Still Together


A stray cat was found in a rusted out boat by a 10-year-old boy 13 years ago. “I fed him some cheese. Been my best bud ever since,” reddit user RRSC14 wrote.

Now at 23, he shared his story: “I found Lester when I went to Wildwood NJ for vacation. We had rented a condo and there was an old rusty boat up on a trailer in the middle of a field by the condo complex. That’s where he dwelled. I first noticed Lester when I saw him leaping in the tall grass here and there. I finally realized he was hunting and eating the grasshoppers that inhabited the overgrown grass.

He was a friendly little guy so he didn’t need much coaxing to approach me so then I fed him some cheese and he followed me inside. I laid on the bed to watch some TV and he curled up on my chest and fell asleep. I was 10 at the time so when my parents came into the room and I immediately shushed them and pointed to my chest where this fist sized kitten was sound asleep they knew we weren’t going home without him. The vet diagnosed him with feline Leukemia, apparently it’s common in strays who have been out in the world a few weeks. Cats with leukemia are thought to only live to 3-4. But Lester is 13 and still rockin’. Been there my whole adult life and my dad jokes that the cat will outlive him.”

Seven the Cat Found in a Box of Discarded Christmas Decorations on the 7th Floor on the 7th Day of Jan


Seven, a sweet little kitten, was found in a box of discarded Christmas decorations in a communal corridor of a tower block in Wandsworth, London.

She is about 3-4 months old. They named her ‘Seven’ because she was found on the seventh floor of the building on January 7th at around 7PM according to RSPCA.

“Seven was found as a terrified little ball inside a litter tray, on top of a huge cardboard box full of old junk and festive paraphemalia,” said RSPCA.

They brought her into the shelter and treated her infection. “She’s very lovely and purrs at the slightest touch, but is understandably a bit timid. We hope when the time is right, we can find her a new forever home which gives her the kindness she deserves.”
