Sasha the Stray Cat Finds New Home At Two Libraries


A stray cat found her way into two local libraries in Dorr Township, Michigan. When Natalie Bazan’s mother was taking a walk through one of the parks in the city, she was greeted by a feline friend. “…she heard a meowing up in the tree and down comes Sasha,” said Natalie, the Director of the Hopkins District and Dorr Township Libraries. (News Channel 3)

“My mom called me up and said ‘Hey, can you do something with this kitten?’ She became our library cat,” she said.

“People love coming in and playing with her. They’ve brought toys, they’ve bought food, treats, all kinds of stuff. It’s just wonderful.”

Sasha the 8 month old Japanese Bobtail cat has traveled between the two libraries every day for a couple months. She enjoys greeting readers, walking around the libraries, and napping on bookshelves.

“We’re hoping to use her to draw attention to the Humane Society. We’re looking to do a Humane Society drive for this Christmas season. And we’re asking people to bring in donations, because she was a homeless cat,” Bazan added.

“It brings people in that won’t necessarily usually come to the library. They like to come in search her out and play with her. They get used to coming in and then they can use our resources and realize what we have here. She’s a gateway to the library,” Bazan told to News Channel 3.

Dog and Cat Found Together As Strays Share Lifelong Friendship


Penny the cat and Henny the dog found together as strays share a lifelong friendship. The duo can’t be separated.

“They were brought in as strays to us by a citizen in Martinez who found them in her yard,” Daniel Mayne of Columbia County Animal Services told News Channel 6.

“In the mornings Henny will groom Penny, the cat. They will get to playing and we let them out of their cages to play around in the room while we’re cleaning.” he added.

“Apparently, Penny, the cat wandered into the yard one day. Since then the two have been completely inseparable… It was meant to be.”

Missing Cat Reunited With His Owner After 12 Years


Toby the cat who went missing 12 years ago has been reunited with his human, Jemma Lough. He disappeared from his home in Braintree Essex back in 2002.

More than a decade later, Toby was found and thought to be a stray. When a vet scanned his microchip, they discovered the owner’s contact details. “It was a bit of a shock, I couldn’t believe the phone call. I’ve never had anything like this,” Lough told BBC Essex.

“When I took the call initially, I was shaking. There were a lot of tears when I first went to see him, it was overwhelming.”

Toby, now 16, was reunited with his human mom and his cat mother, Jackie, 18. “He walked over and licked his mom’s head when he saw her again for the first time,” she added.

No one knows where Toby had been for the last 12 years, but over the past few months, Toby had been staying at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. A member of the staff took him to the vet. “She thought he should have a home for the winter, so she took him to the vet,” said Lough.

“He was being very well looked after. The vets checked him over and we went down two days later and picked him up.” (BBC)

Lough kept Toby’s microchip information up to date after he went missing, which helped the vet find his owner.

“I wish he could tell me where he’s been. His feet which were white are little bit gray, so you can tell he’s been living outside,” she said. “For me, it’s like he’s the same cat. He looks a bit older, but he’s got the same personality.”

Toby the cat vanished from his home back in 2002. 12 years later, he was reunited with his human. “When I took the call initially, I was shaking. There were a lot of tears when I first went to see him, it was overwhelming.”

Feral Kitten, See Her Transformation!


A few weeks ago, they rescued a feral kitten. See her amazing transformation!

“We’ve been catching up and fixing a colony in our neighborhood for a while now. Most of the cats are under the impression that they belong to us now, and so we’re in the possession of ten cats that live outside our house. We’ve kept a couple for inside kitties over the years and they have made the most excellent cats. Little Bou had a URI so bad her eyes were glued shut for most of her life and she’s half the size she should be at her age. Bless her heart! She’s already got me wrapped around her little claw now though,” Bou’s rescuer wrote via reddit.

“We’ve done TNR for the rest of the colony, but this little one is feral no more :) still shy, but working on her social lapcat skills,” she added.

First day home. Bou was very shy. “This was just a few minutes after I hauled her little feral butt inside. She hid behind the toilet and wouldn’t let me get any closer.”

To the vet! “A few weeks later, she’s on her way to her first vet visit. Turns out she has both FIV and ringworm.”

Orphan Kitten Strays Into Man’s Life. Now He’s Family


A tiny orphan kitten strayed into a man’s life. They became family.

“This guy was delivered to me starved and covered in fleas a year and a half ago. Now he’s family,” said his human dad.

“His name is Walker. He’s a rescue I took off the streets in downtown LA… No mom, no siblings. About 4 weeks old, and covered in dirt and fleas. I nursed the little guy to health and cared for him until he was confirmed parasite free.”

“His progress… has been amazing. It was touch and go for a while (we weren’t sure he was gonna make it since he was so undernourished and fragile). But he pulled through with some help from a few friends with experience in saving stray cats, and a great vet.”

 “This guy was delivered to me starved and covered in fleas a year and a half ago. Now he’s family.”

Cat Turns Up To Funeral of Cat-lover


A cat living 12 miles away turned up at a cat lover’s funeral to pay respects. It was the purr-fect sendoff.

This strange but heartwarming story was posted on the Facebook page of a funeral home when they were trying to find the owner of the cat.

Kieran Flynn said that the cat sat during the removal ceremony on Wednesday afternoon of a man who was known to be a cat lover. It was as if the cat came to pay respects.

After he posted a picture on Facebook, they found the owner of the cat and reunited the feline friend with them.

“This guy turns up at Flynn’s Funeral Home in Castlemaine, Co Kerry this evening and comes in and sits down for the duration of the funeral. Never before seen anything like this to happen.

I know the deceased was a cat lover and maybe the cat was paying its last respects but I’m hoping that someone may recognize the cat as it is very tame and very friendly and obviously very well cared for.”

Later he posted an update to the post that the cat has been reunited with the owner, and “turns out the cat had travelled from Inch to the funeral home in Castlemaine under the bonnet of a car.”
