A tiny ginger kitty was found by workers in the yard. They took him in and the little furball started snuggling with one of the employees in his cozy little pocket. “Work is so much better with your trusty pocket kitten…”
“We found him in some crates in the yard, had to tempt him out with some ham. Poor little fellas only 3 weeks old,” said jnthnrgrs of reddit. “One of the other blokes took him in, he’s been all cleared by the vet. Apparently purrs like a drag car engine.”

Margo the sweet cat mama came to her foster home with her 4 tiny kittens. All of them are grey. Can you tell these little ones apart?
“We have a young mommy cat named Margo and her four, one-month old kittens. All are grey, with various levels of floofiness. The shelter said there are two ‘girls’ and two ‘boys,'” said the foster mom via instagram.

“Kittens are the answer. It doesn’t matter what the question is.”
Almost all of them are looking at the camera.

An employee from a nursing home brought in a basket full of six goopy-eyed kittens to get help. The mama cat made a home near a hay bale that was later removed. “Once the hay bale was gone, the momma started hissing at the wee kittens and refusing to feed them,” said Jean, animal rescuer and fosterer.
They scooped up the kittens and got them help. “Thankfully, my foster family that homeschools three kids agreed to take these squirming furballs. All were treated with antibiotics and deemed to otherwise be in good health. They were fed every four hours around the clock until transitioned to eating on their own,” Jean added.
“Being handfed, these little ones ADORE humans. They long to be held.”

They were found abandoned by their cat mama.
After many sleepless nights, the kittens have been nursed back to health. Look at the difference!

There were a lot of tears, happy tears, at the Seattle Animal Shelter last Saturday, when a cat stolen 10 years ago was reunited with his human mom.
Seattle Animal Shelter wrote: “Meet Howie. His mom adopted him when he was a wee lad, and he was stolen near the Burke Gilman Trail about 10 years ago while his mom was on a trip to Spain. Howie was such a smart, friendly kitty, and it took his mom years of searching and crying before she finally adopted another cat.
Fast forward to 2014. A few days ago someone found a stray cat and brought him to SAS. Staff scanned him for a microchip, found his old license record noting he’d been stolen long ago, and started making calls. Saturday, after 10 years of being apart, Howie’s mom opened his kennel door and let him sniff her. He immediately leaned in to be petted and was soon in her arms. Now he’s off to meet his kitty brother and live out his life with his family. Best wishes, Howie!
It’s a great reminder of the power of identification. License, microchip, and nametag – and be sure to keep your information up to date!”

On a popular trail at Colca Canyon in southern Peru, there is an odd-eyed cat that lives in one of the few houses in the canyon. Almost all of the tourists that are on this several day long trek make a stop at this spot. This beautiful cat has become the local celebrity to travelers. (reddit)
The kitty’s eyes are of different colors.

“Are you done with that?”

It’s pure joy when a “big tough farmer” cuddles with his beloved kitten. He’s a big softie when it comes to animals.
“The best part is, they just sat like this for a few minutes. Pure happiness from both kitten and (my) father in-law,” said reddit user eaa513.
He named the kitten Peaches. In fact, he named all the kitties he found on the farm.

Shelter cat picks his new dad.
“I adopted a kitten last week, and the shelter got a picture of our first meeting,” said Kyle via reddit.
They named him Mac. “Right now we call him Little Mac. The girlfriend says it’s for mathematician Colin Maclaurin (we’re both math teachers) but I say it’s for the Punch Out boxer,” he added. “He is adjusting very well. He gets along with the dogs great, and has tons and tons of kitten energy!” (Facebook)
“I pick you human.”
