Timo the cat loves taking his daily walk with his human to the koi pond to visit his friends.
Happiness is a warm fuzzy kitten belly. This soft little kitty is kneading the air while getting her belly rubs.
It took Smokey a 10 year old rescue cat almost eight years to feel comfortable showing his affection to people, but when he finally did it, it was a breakthrough that nearly brought his humans to tears.
“We got Smokey from a shelter about eight years ago when he was 2. Apparently he was badly abused as a kitten and subsequently was very wary of people at the best of times, he especially dislike men, which I only found out when I tried to pick him up the first time and got some really nice gashes in my arms,” vanderwoolf of Imgur wrote.
“When we took him home he hid under the bed for nearly a week. Only sneaking out to use the litter box and to eat. Smokey was very aloof for about 6 years, then a couple years ago he started to show some small signs of affection. He would let me hold him for extended periods of time (this is relative, extended in this sense is up to 5 minutes at a time) and loved getting petted as long as he was on the floor, it seemed like he felt much safer getting attention there as he could easily escape should things go sour. I was the only one he would really show lots of affection to.”
“Fast forward to about 6 months ago. All of a sudden he started sitting on the back of the couch with us. If I was sitting down, he would inch closer and closer until he was basically leaning against me. But if he heard anyone else walking into the room he would run off, almost like he was embarrassed. A couple weeks ago he started the half-lap thing you see in the first photo, which I thought was great. Until…
Yesterday, when he walked over and plopped himself right down onto my lap for a 30 minute cat-nap. I couldn’t believe it! It’s been such a long road to get to this point but I couldn’t be happier.”

A cat named Kuzya has taken the position as the assistant librarian at a children’s library in Russia. Just like Dewey the Library Cat, Kuzya is a former stray who showed up at the library’s door one day and made it his home. “After arching his back and running his face along people’s legs he was able to procure food and (secretly) a warm place to spend cold winter days,” Rocket News 24 reports.
It wasn’t easy for Kuzya to become a permanent resident in the library as he lacked the proper documents to be kept in a public place. He would need a cat passport, an ID chip and a rabies vaccination.
The dapper looking library cat just got promoted to be the official assistant librarian from the previous title “pet” for his cuteness, good work ethic, and the joy he brings to everyone in the library. He is awarded with 30 packs of cat food a month and plenty of cat treats as bonuses from staff and visitors.

He showed up at the library’s door one day and made it his home.
Kuzya would need proper documents to stay permanently in the library, so they got the paperwork in order and gave him an ID chip and a vaccination.
Kuzya’s job duties include sleeping, supervising staff, looking cute and entertaining visitors.
The dapper looking library cat makes sure the staff is doing a good job keeping the place nice and tidy.
After a long day of hard work, Kuzya is relaxing on his chair.
