A little kitten somehow survived being picked up by a front loader and dumped into a bin of concrete and finally rescued by a construction worker who acted with quick thinking. Willie Harris keeps his eyes on each load, then on Thursday afternoon, something different caught his eyes. “At the very last minute, I saw a little fur ball… I thought it was an old glove or something that would be in the rocks,” he said via 13abc.
It turned out to be a little kitten, only 3 weeks old. “I ran down the steps, cut off the machine and jumped in… I thought it was dead, but then it scratched me. I said, ‘its alive!'” Harris said in an interview with 13abc.
They named the little ginger Lucky and took him to a local shelter to have the kitten checked out. “Just a couple of very minor injuries which is very surprising considering everything it seems he went through,” reported Cind C via 13abc.
Penelope was rescued from a hoarder’s house and the only survivor of her litter. “My baby Penelope. We call her Penny for short. In this photo she is just about 7 weeks old and she loves that Monkey. I’m so blessed to have her,” said kitty’s new mom via tumblr.
Regan is one of the six tiny babies born to a feral cat, Snowflake. Regan’s name means “King’s Child.” Mollie’s Dream rescued the kittens and had the cat mama spayed and returned. Look how far he’s come.
Booboo the cat with opposable thumbs was born to a feral cat who came to a family’s garden one day and decided that’s where they wanted to call home.
“Their Mother hangs around the community. When Hubbie noticed she was getting bigger he started coaxing her to our garden with dry food. There are many stray dogs roaming around and he did not want to see her get hurt. I tried trapping her. No way would she fall for that. So several weeks later she came wandering thru the garden skinny. We did not see the kittens for several weeks. My garden became their play ground and slowly they got used to humans,” said Eileen.
“I caught them and worked to socialize them so they can get adopted. 3 out of the 4 kittens are polydactyl. Boo Boo has a forever home with us now.” He also gained two furry friends, Saba and Sunny. “Saba and Boo Boo run crazy thru the house fighting and causing a mess but its a joy to have them be a part of our life. He picked me, and I am so thrilled,” Eileen wrote.
