Hana the kitty is giving her dad back rubs.
Shiro the chill cat from Japan just got a new sister, Mimi, a rambunctious little kitten who runs around Shiro all day. The cool kitty Shiro isn’t bothered. He is as patient as he can be and puts up with all the nomming, pouncing, tail playing and other antics from Mimi. At the end of the day, Mimi likes to snuggle up with Shiro like a best friend.

This little ginger kitten has used several of his nine lives after being trapped in a Fontana storm drain for days, but he didn’t give up, crying through the pipes until one resident named Valerie Rodino who heard the cries and dialed 911 for help.
Eight firefighters including the Urban Search and Rescue team unit were immediately dispatched to save the kitten after they received the phone call around 9:22AM. Initially they tried to use tuna to lure the kitten out of the drain, but that was to no avail. Then they sent in equipment to check the oxygen levels to ensure there weren’t any toxic gasses inside. A firefighter crawled in in an attempt to reach the kitten. According to San Bernardino County fire Capt. John Lansing via Fontana, “He was on his belly pushing with his feet and his hands to inch his way toward the cat, so he was pretty physically exhausted when he was done.”
Finally around 11:30AM, they successfully pulled the little kitten out of a 20-inch pipe. “He was a little wet and probably a whole lot hungry,” said Lansing.
The firefighters worked in a team to get the kitten out to safety. He was later taken to the vet by the residents and all seemed to be well with the little ginger boy. He is about 10 weeks old and has already found a new home in the neighborhood.

This rescue cow kitten named Moo was introduced to two loving dogs who became the kitty’s mom and nanny.
“My grandma has Alzheimer’s and likes to feed the stray cats in her backyard. She found this [kitten] when she was one day old and brought her inside…. She was the only little one she found and mama cat hadn’t been seen in a while. [My grandma] was trying to feed her cow milk with a spoon, so I rescued her, brought her home and introduced her to my dogs who are her new momma and nanny. The smaller dog (Lady Beatrice) is the bigger dog’s (Panda) momma…. So I knew I could get Lady Beatrice to help out,” said Bettina C from Pawcious Moments.
Bettina who is a volunteer for Long Beach Spay and Neuter, bottle feeds little Moo around the clock with help from her dogs. Lady Beatrice especially adores Moo. She cleans her, looks after her and is there every step of the way like a mother. They share a very special bond together.
