Amputee Kitty Adopted By Someone Just Like Her


Itty Bitty the 3-legged kitty is adopted by a special human who is also an amputee. When Brian Gentilotti met the tripaw kitten, he knew it was the perfect match.

“Itty Bitty is the amazing story of an injured kitten brought to Katz 4 Keeps with an uncertain future. While waiting to grow big enough to be spayed and have her injured leg amputated, Itty Bitty met Brian. Brian, an amputee himself and a huge part of Camp No Limits (camp for amputee children), was brought to Katz 4 Keeps by a friend to meet Itty Bitty. Brian immediately felt a connection and put a hold on Itty Bitty for adoption,” Katz 4 Keeps wrote on Facebook.

“I was down here visiting two campers and we were going to go to camp the following week. They said we found a really great cat for you to adopt so I came down and checked her out and that was it,” said Gentilotti via First Coast News.

Itty Bitty had to have her badly injured front leg removed, but she isn’t letting her amputation slow her down at all.

“I also had an amputation due to traumatic injury. After I had the amputation I was able to go back to doing the things I used to do like snow mobile and ski so it was definitely a positive thing… She’s not limited… She climbs. She hops up on things. She plays. She walks,” Gentilotti said.

“You can do anything. Don’t sit home and feel sorry for yourself because you have one limb missing, a hand or are missing both legs. There are a lot of amputees there that are missing all four limbs, and it’s amazing what they can do. They can throw a football better than I can, and this cat is an example of that. She’s able to do anything,” Gentilotti added.

Kittens Found In Box Shipped From Los Angeles to San Diego


A Cox Communications employee was shocked after he opened a box at work and found two newborn kittens clinging to life inside. “At just a few days old, they were accidentally packed up in a Cox equipment box… They went without food or care for several of the first days of their lives,” San Diego Humane Society wrote.

The two kittens were accidentally packed up in a box shipped from the Hollywood to San Diego County.

“They were very, very lucky that they didn’t fall out of it in transport or when we were unloading the truck,” JC Collins, Cox Communications employee, said.

“When I first saw them, I knew they were very, very young.” Collins contacted his nephew, who works as an investigator with the San Diego Humane Society. “They actually came to us with their umbilical cord still attached,” said Jenny Bonomini, a nurse at the San Diego Humane Society.

The kittens were named Mouse and Wifi.

What they think happened was that the mother cat put her new born babies in a safe spot and left. Then the kittens were boxed up and shipped away.

Luckily the little furballs are now in good hands. San Diego Humane Society provides around-the-clock care for the babies. “They’re fat and happy! That’s nice little fat belly right there,” Bonomini said.

When he plays video games, kitty tries to help. “She’s even tried to crawl up the TV to ‘help,’” he added.

Hazel The Little Orphan


Hazel and her sister Effie were surrendered to the shelter. Without a mom, the two babies need to be hand reared round the clock. Laurie C. of Itty Bitty Kitty Committee took the sisters to her home and became their surrogate mom.

“When they arrived, their expressions were blank, and they did not respond to the sight of us or any movement or sounds. They were just tiny, hungry, squirming, screaming things.

Now, they interact with us so much more. They seek attention and affection. Their eyes are brighter, they respond to sound, they are stronger and more stable, they play harder, and scream louder.”

When Hazel came to her foster home, her expressions were blank and she didn’t respond to the sight of any movement or sounds.

Stray Cat Turns Man Into Cat Lover


He was never a cat person until he met Raven the stray who stole his heart right from the start. ”Grew up with dogs, love those ‘OMG YOU’RE HOME!’ excited moments, the loyalty and obedience. It’s all glorious,” Raven’s human wrote.

“I snubbed a bunch of cats in my time because I liked dogs and cats were just independent little balls of ‘I do what I want.’ …Until just around Halloween of last year. Little black cat came up on our back porch one night, extremely friendly and cuddly. She didn’t leave our back porch for three days. We had an out of season snowstorm (hurricane Sandy), and I just felt so guilty leaving her outside. So now I have cat. And I love the crap out of her.” (reddit)

“First day we brought her inside, after a nice bath. Surprisingly she didn’t scratch me, she just meowed sadly.”

“She won’t stop licking my hand.”

Stray Cat From Fear To Love


She was a stray cat found on the street, scared and hungry. Her rescuer sat with her for 2 hours and when she finally fell asleep on his lap, that’s when he knew.

“Some months ago, while out driving, we saw a stray cat wandering alongside the main road. We pulled over and got after her. She was easy to catch and wasn’t struggling, since she hardly had any energy left,” they wrote via imgur.

“Her body was covered with fleas and you could feel every bone sticking out.” They gave her a bath to help her remove the fleas.

“She was a bit scared but I sat with her for 2 hours and she ended up falling asleep on my lap. And that’s when I knew.”

The same day they took her to a vet. “They sterilized her and a help organization gave her medicine and food for the next 1 month, before we took her home again.”

“She can’t meow. She’s got abnormal long canines. Her tongue is oversized. She is afraid of heights. Her backlogs are stiff. But she wakes me up every morning, and falls asleep by holding my hand. This is my cat.”

Orphan Kitten Saved By Retired Guard Dog


A tiny calico kitten was saved and adopted by a retired guard dog. Now Lily the dog guards and protects her little kitten.

“I heard a loud funny noise as we entered the park and I thought it was a bird. We walked Lily and on the way out I decided to investigate the noise that was still quite loud thinking it could be an injured bird,” said Lorrie R. via Kitty Army.

As they approached closer to the noise, Lily the dog started sniffing around and that’s when she found a 2 week old kitten. Knowing that it would be impossible for the kitten to survive in the woods, Lorrie picked up the kitten and they were headed off home.

“So I brought her home thinking it was going to be a very long month keeping them apart and safe. Much to my surprise, Lily has adopted the kitten! Comes and gets me when she needs to be fed and watches to make sure I do it right! I think Lily wants to keep her and I think in a month’s time she may get her wish!”
