Spirit The Blind Cat Helps Rescue Kittens


Spirit the blind cat uses his exploring skills to help rescuers search and rescue 4 tiny kittens at a construction site. This is a remarkable story.

Despite his difficult beginning that took away his eye sight, Spirit has forgiven his past and now lives his best life and goes out to help others.

Here is the story from Spirit’s Facebook page:

spirit the blind cat“Late in the afternoon on Monday, April 14, we were notified about a feral cat that had been trapped at a building Construction site the day before, at around 11 am Sunday. The person who trapped the cat suspected that she was pregnant, but was not sure until the veterinarian informed her Monday afternoon that the cat had already given birth. The chances of finding the kittens — or being alive — after so much time had lapsed was very dismal. But we HAD to TRY! The temperatures were dropping, and our low for the night would be in the 30′s. We did not have any idea of what we might encounter, but we brought our Most Valuable Asset — a little blind kitty with a powerful spirit, who is absolutely amazing! Spirit is an excellent explorer, and will go above and beyond to help anyone in need. We needed a miracle!

Once we arrived at the Construction site, and were led to a rear access point under a trailer, and we quickly discovered that the space underneath this trailer was dark, very muddy and eerie, with an extremely low (height) clearance. We would need to crawl on our elbows and belly in order to maneuver under the trailer. The area was so daunting, we did not feel safe going into an unknown dark, cold, wet area, with only one entry/exit point. But, we needed to search for the hidden (abandoned) kittens, because time was of the essence! So, we called a dear friend who lived close by, and asked if she would be willing to venture into the unknown with us, under the trailer. To our Surprise, she agreed!!!

The entire time that we were searching under the trailer, Spirit was off lead. This was necessary for a number of reasons — so that his leash would not get tangled up in the debris, or metal supports, and also because he needed the freedom and ability to thoroughly investigate the lowest areas, where the clearance was literally about 6-8 inches high — too low for a person to reach on their own. We relied upon Spirit’s ability to notify & alert us, and our boy did not disappoint!”

Edit: According to Spirit’s facebook page, “Their (feral) mama cat had been spayed, then recovered at a friends house, and was relocated outside at a workers home.” The stress of surgery and nursing might be too much for the mama cat to handle, so they brought in CC the cat to help raise the kittens. And CC is fantastic!

This is the construction site trailer, where the feral mama kitty had been seen taking refuge under.

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.

Kitten Won’t Let Human Dad Do Anything Without Her


This 5 week old calico kitten loves her human dad and she won’t let him do anything without her.

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.”
