Tripod Henry The Pirate Kitty


Meet Henry the pirate cat who has three legs, one eye and a big purrsonality.

“He was born with a non-functional leg and an eye with recurring ulcer issues. So in one giant operation, they removed his eye, his leg, and neutered him! Must have been one heck of a rough wake-up for the little guy… According to his medical records, he was purring and cuddling and ruling around the very next day,” said Phil.

They decided to adopt Henry when they met him. It was love at first sight. “We didn’t realize until he woke up that he was missing parts. We adopted him right away, as he was extremely cute and cuddly.”

Henry doesn’t seem to notice he’s any different. “He runs around like crazy, eats like a champ and frequently tackles his much larger, older ‘brother’, Johnny… He is SO fluffy and cute, and has an amazing personality,” he added.

Budd The Wobbly Kitty Doesn’t Let Anything Slow Him Down


Meet Budd. He’s a ‘wobbly’ kitty, born unable to walk or stand, but Budd doesn’t want people to take pity on him. He is learning to walk, making a lot of progress and is the happiest he can be with his loving family. Budd doesn’t let anything slow him down.

Budd born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia was found at eight weeks old and brought to Cat Depot, a rescue center in Sarasota, Florida.

Touching Story Of The ‘Subway Cat’ And His Human


A tabby cat called McLovin’ takes his regular subway train rides with his human Leslie Noel in Toronto, Canada. The two are inseparable. The story of how they found each other explains this incredible bond.

“It’s a bond,” Noel said. “He’s the only thing I have. No, he’s not a pet.” (via Toronto Life)

“He’s my baby, he’s like my child. When I’m crying he licks my tears, when I have bad dreams he wakes me up, I kid you not. He’s a miracle cat. He’s like a fallen angel.”

The two met three years ago when Noel was looking for an apartment. The landlord offered him a room and reassured him not to worry about the smell and the mess in there. “‘It’ll be cleaned up by the time you get in there.’ He unbolts this door and inside was four dead kittens and McLovin’,” he added.

“I said, ‘I’m not going to take this room, I’m going to take this cat,’ and the rest is history. He’s my baby. He was so small, he was so little. I had to bottle feed him every two hours for two weeks straight.”

Before Noel found McLovin’, he was still coping with the passings of his parents. “I prayed to God. I just wanted not to be alone any more,” he said. “What I meant was a girl, but the exact next day I found him. And he’s in my life ever since.”

Extra-Toed Kitty Family Rescued In Birmingham – 180 Toesies!


A group of eight kitties were rescued by the Cats Protection Birmingham Adoption Centre in July. When the rescue workers inspected the kitties, they discovered that almost all of them had extra toes on their paws.

“A group of cats was recently abandoned at our Birmingham Adoption Centre. Two female adults were accompanied by six eight-week-old kittens, several of which were showing signs of mild cat flu, plus eye infections. All were seen and treated by a vet and have now been nursed back to health,” via Cats Protection blog.

“The extraordinary thing is that with the exception of two kittens, all the cats have extra toes! They have therefore been dubbed ‘the Polydactyl family’.”

Meet the Polydactyl family!
