Roadside Rescue Kitten Fits Right Into Loving Family


A tiny kitten was found on the side of the road injured by a moving car, but the little one bounced back after being rescued by kind people who wouldn’t give up on her.

“On the road I saw (the kitty’s) huge eyes from the side of the road… no question of us not stopping, and despite the bloody nose and broken leg, she bounced back almost immediately and joined our little zoo like she’d been born into it,” said lvacqua via reddit.

They named her Chamberlain. “Definitely not a girls name but we were on our way home from a weekend trip to Gettysburg visiting the Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain memorial. He survived multiple battle wounds and went on to run a university and the state of Maine for a while. We figured that if any name was fitting for the little one who beat all the odds, Chamberlain was it,” she added.

When they found her, she was injured lying on the side of the road. “on the road I saw… her huge eyes from the side of the road… no question of us not stopping.”

Xander Former Lab Research Cat Finds Freedom And Loving Home


Xander the cat (also known as Jax) has been rescued from a research lab. This is him walking into freedom for the first time. [Scroll down for video]

“Xander was legally rescued from a lab in New York, on the condition of anonymity, by Beagle Freedom Project in January 2014,” said Rachel Gruen, Xander’s new mom via Huffington Post. “He lived in a windowless lab in a tiny wire cage for the first three years of his life, and he was done being a test subject.”

A lab employee contacted the rescue group about Xander, so he could be saved and given a home.

Gruen happened to be on the rescue’s page when she came across Xander’s picture. “As soon as I clicked it and saw Xander’s handsome picture on their page, I fell in love with him and knew that I was meant to be his mom.”

Xander, a former lab research cat, now has found freedom and a loving home.

Worker Rescues ‘Bucket Brigade’ Kittens At Work Site


A worker found these tiny kittens at his work place. The mother was nowhere to be found. He knew he couldn’t just leave them behind.

Northeast animal shelter wrote:

“At about 1 pm on Friday Aug. 29, Stephen walked into our shelter with a dirty looking five-gallon bucket. He was at a work site in Peabody, MA and discovered 3 little balls of fur. There was no mother cat around and he knew he couldn’t just leave them behind, unprotected, when he went home at the end of the day. He looked around for a box but could only come up with a dirty work bucket.

When Stephen arrived at Northeast Animal Shelter he knew the bucket wasn’t the best thing to transport them in, and he was worried if he did the right thing. We assured him that he did exactly the right thing.

When we looked in the bucket, three little, hissing kittens were looking back at us. They were so cute. Once our clinic staff looked them over and cleaned them up, we got them settled in with some lunch. They were starving. We are guessing they are about 4 weeks old.

One of our adoption counselors, Carey, knew right away that she would foster these little cuties until they are big enough for adoption. Carey will make sure they learn what love is.

Stephen left with his work bucket to go back to work, having received lots of gratitude from our staff and volunteers for taking the time out of his day to make sure these babies would be safe, but…

About a half hour later, Stephen and his bucket came walking through our door. He found two more babies! We quickly reunited them with their siblings who were now resting with full bellies. These two dove right into the food bowls.

Stephen will keep an eye out for their mom each day he returns to work but today he saved five lives.”

A kind man working at a job site made two trips to the shelter to bring 5 rescue kittens to safety.

Stephen who discovered the kittens transported three kittens to the shelter and later found another two, so he went back to the shelter. The kittens were reunited.

Furry Family Of Five


Margo the sweet cat mama came to her foster home with her 4 tiny kittens. All of them are grey. Can you tell these little ones apart?

“We have a young mommy cat named Margo and her four, one-month old kittens. All are grey, with various levels of floofiness. The shelter said there are two ‘girls’ and two ‘boys,'” said the foster mom via instagram.

Litter of Six Rescue Kittens


An employee from a nursing home brought in a basket full of six goopy-eyed kittens to get help. The mama cat made a home near a hay bale that was later removed. “Once the hay bale was gone, the momma started hissing at the wee kittens and refusing to feed them,” said Jean, animal rescuer and fosterer.

They scooped up the kittens and got them help. “Thankfully, my foster family that homeschools three kids agreed to take these squirming furballs. All were treated with antibiotics and deemed to otherwise be in good health. They were fed every four hours around the clock until transitioned to eating on their own,” Jean added.

“Being handfed, these little ones ADORE humans. They long to be held.”

Big ‘Little Dude’ The Cat On Mission To Healthier Weight


A big fella named Little Dude weighing in at a whopping 36 lbs (16kg) is on a mission to slim down safely with help from his foster family.

WAGS wrote: “A BIG Little Dude is a Supersized Sweetie looking to slim down and eventually find his forever home. He weighs in at 36 lbs & is in a loving foster home.

In August, 2014, a 5 year old male brown tabby named Little Dude was relinquished by his family to Westminster Adoption Group & Services due to financial hardship. Sadly, this story is quite common, but there was a twist!

No one at WAGS could prepare for what they were about to receive. They were presented with what could be considered the poster kitty for morbid obesity. Adult male cats typically weigh, on average, 12-14 lbs, but this handsome guy is just a bit bigger. Actually, he’s a lot bigger. Little Dude can barely walk, weighing in at a whopping 36.4 lbs!

Right away, they recognized that this supersized sweetie needed an intervention. A call was put out for a foster to step up to help this cat shed the pounds and build his strength.

That call was answered by a wonderfully loving family who has fostered many times over the years, as well as adopted from WAGS. Together, WAGS and the foster family – with a prescription involving lots of love, a healthy diet, playful exercise, and weekly vet checks – will help Little Dude transform into a whole new cat.”
