According to Taipei Times, Positi imitated female monkeys to care and nurse his kittens. He fought other macaques for food for the kittens and was seen teasing the kittens to sleep like it would a baby monkey. “It’s difficult for people to catch the kittens from the monkey. We have spent a lot of time with them, but it’s still not an easy task. It takes two people to do the job,” Lin said.

“The monkey is truly kind to the kittens. They are kept very clean, free of parasites.”

Lin usually spends hours sitting with Positi, talking to him, trying to bond to gain trust. “Last time, I sat here with the monkey from 10:30am to 1:30pm.”

After Lin successfully snatched the kitten from his surrogate ‘mom,’ he took the little feline baby to the vet for evaluation.

“The monkey has done a great job caring for it,” said the vet. “Weighing in about 300g, the kitten is very skinny. Hope next time he comes, his weight can go up more.”

“It certainly will!” Lin responded with confidence.

When Lin saw the kitten getting food and liquid, he felt a sigh of relief and was beaming with joy, knowing that the kitten was going to be OK.

They named the kitten Qiqi and now he’s living happily with Lin, his forever human.

There were many sleepless nights after they rescued a baby kitten whose eyes hadn’t opened. They named him little Gatsby. “After 2 long weeks of bottle feeding this little guy, he’s now fat, happy and my new best friend,” the rescuer wrote via reddit.

“I found this kitten in the yard all alone,” they said. “The mom left this one when she moved the nest it was left in the open in my yard and I watched a cat come up to it and then walk away, assuming it was the mom.”

With a lot of love, Gatsby is thriving in his new family. “Little Gatsby is very content after some milk and a warm belly rub.”

This is when they found little Gatsby in the yard. The round of clock care began that night.

A tiny kitten was saved thanks to the firefighters from the Mentor Fire Department Station #5 who flushed a crying kitten out from an Ohio drain pipe. The rescue was incredible!

The kitten was lodged in a drain pipe underneath a concrete driveway unable to get out. “Upon arrival fire crews from Mentor Station # 5 found a small kitten stuck in a PVC pipe drain extending from a downspout on the building that was under the concrete drive. The kitten was about 15 feet in from the end of the PVC pipe which put the kitten in the pipe underneath the concrete. Mentor Station # 5 was able to finally flush the kitten out of the drain without event. Staff from Governor’s Port Independent Living took the kitten to the vet for evaluation,” Mentor Fire Department said.

Rescue Cat Merlin Sets New World Record for Loudest Purr

Merlin, a rescue kitty from Torquay, Devon (UK) is now officially world’s loudest purrer!

The Guinness World Records just confirmed that Merlin has the loudest purr by a domestic cat, registered at 67.8 decibels which beats the previous record of 67.68 decibels set by Smokey the cat back in 2011.

Rescue Cat Merlin Sets New World Record for Loudest Purr

The 13 year old tuxedo cat was adopted from an animal rescue center. The family adores his loud purr. “Occasionally when he’s really loud I have to repeat myself. When you’re watching films you have to turn the telly up… If he’s eating he’ll purr loudly. I can hear him when I’m drying my hair,” Tracy Westwood said.

“If he’s cleaning he gets louder and sometimes if the telephone rings I do get people asking me what’s that noise in the background, I tell them it’s the cat but I don’t know if they believe me.”

Merlin’s purr is about as noisy as a conversation or an air conditioner and nearly as loud as a shower or a dishwasher according to Guinness World Records.

“It was amazing to see just how loud his purr was in person and, despite a couple of readings of Merlin’s purr just under the current record, a bowl of tuna cat food proved to make all the difference and secure the record,” GWR spokesman Jamie Clarke said.

Some local media previously came to visit Merlin and recorded his purr at around 100 decibels…

Guinness World Records was intrigued and came to verify it. They used a system to measure the purr and recorded Merlin’s purr to be at 67.8 decibels. Here’s a preview of Merlin’s record-setting purr on Make You Laugh Out Loud 2.

Meet Andre the giant cat who weighs about 25 lbs! This rescue stray has not only become the mascot for a pet supply store, but he also has helped a lot of other kitties get adopted.

Andre the Giant Cat was found roaming around downtown Firplay, Colorado in November. “Within a month of us having him, people coming in to see him and to visit, the adoption rate for the rescue skyrocketed,” said Miyuki Takeda, owner of High Paw Pet Supplies.

Part of the store is dedicated to animal adoption. After Andre was adopted by the store, they received more than a dozen applications for adoption.

At the time, Andre weighed about 20 lbs. According to the vet, he was underweight and needed to stay at the shelter to get up to a healthy weight.

The store owner fell in love with Andre and decided that they would make Andre their store cat. “When he first came to us, he showed a lot of signs – he acts like a hybrid,” Takeda said.

“We think perhaps he has Savannah in him – those are huge cats,” Takeda added.

One of his first visits to the vet! They thought he was the biggest cat they had seen.

It’s a story with a purrfect ending!

A woman was overcome with joy after her missing cat Roscoe was found and saved from a dried up well.

Roscoe went missing about two weeks ago. When neighbors heard fainted meows from an Oceanside dry well, they called firefighters for help.

About a dozen of men came to the scene. After they made sure the air was safe in the well, a young firefighter Danny Leboff descended into the narrow well, and Roscoe was brought back above ground, couldn’t wait to get out.

“The cat was ready to go, that’s for sure,” said Fire Chief John Madden.

Roscoe’s human was overwhelmed with joy when she saw her beloved tabby cat. “She was very emotional… she couldn’t believe it was her cat,” Madden said. “I think she had given up on seeing him again.”

“She was just hysterical,” said Emma Ryan. “Everyone was clapping and cheering when the cat came out. It was such a happy Mother’s Day. Everyone’s a cat lover.”

“It feels good when you bring them back to their owners,” Madden said.

Roscoe the cat had gone missing for 2 weeks.
