These kittens and their dog buddy are snuggling up in a cuddle puddle for a nap. I think it just broke the cuteometer!
Mango the cat loves kittens. When he saw the rabbits, he decided to hop in to help.
It has been nearly a month since they discovered Mr. Cat. “We gave Mr. Cat the opportunity to live and thrive as the kitten that he should have been. This is Mr. Cat’s story and we would like to share it with the world,” reddit user darkkon wrote via imgur.
“While heading to my car, my colleague and I discovered a small furry thing plopped on the grass near where I worked. When we went up to inspect it, we discovered that it was an emaciated, blind, and dying kitten, much less than a year old. We were able to coax it to slowly get up and walk a few meters where it stopped. My colleague brought a can of cat food and fed it a portion while gently petting it’s skeleton-like frame.”
“We initially did not want to bring in the cat because we had two indoor cats of our own. We also did not know what kind of disease, parasites, and other pests the cat may have,” they wrote.
“Although we knew the cat was likely feral, he seem to understand we were trying to help him. His fear of us waned and he began acting as if we were his guardians. “
“Despite the risks, we created an outdoor shelter made of cardboard to keep it from the cold. Some more food and water, and the cat seemed to be thankful.”
“After discussing it with my partner, we decided to bring him in. A level 10 containment field was setup in our bathroom and a force field was established in the shower.”
They took the cat to the vet the next day. “The cat was in very poor health and severely underweight, but we knew surrendering him to the shelter would only result in him being euthanized,” they wrote. “There were many problems with the him besides the obvious malnutrition, fleas, and dehydration. A severe scabie and mite infestation made him vulnerable to bacterial infection and as a result his eyes were infected and sealed. There were also skin infections caused by lacerations probably from other animals.”
With support from Reddit and hitbox, they were able to raise fund to cover his major care and bring in the supplies needed to keep him comfortable.
“As time passed on, we knew Mr. Cat was getting healthier. The parasites were dying and he was gaining weight. However, one major thing we wanted to overcome was his blindness,” they added. “Lesions and scabs continue to fall off as we aggressively treat the scrabie and mite infestation on Mr. Cat.”
“Nearly three weeks after we discovered Mr. Cat, we did something we would have never imagined when we first got him: We actually touched his fur and gave Mr. Cat a belly rub!” they wrote. “After a final cleaning and haircut, Mr. Cat was beginning to look more and more like a playful, happy kitten. He will be forever blind in his right-eye but with luck, Mr. Cat has full vision on his left-eye. ‘One is better than none’…”
“We took Mr. Cat out to our living room for the first time. A few sardines to get him acquainted outside of the quarantine zone seems to work rather well.”
“Mr. Cat has so strongly associated safety with his box that we created a second vacation home for him outside of the ward. He immediately walks in and makes himself comfortable.”
“Mr. Cat has come a long way, but rehabilitation will be key in getting him comfortable with his new guardians. He may have recovered physically to an extent, but he deserves the kitten-hood that was taken away from him.”
“Mr. Cat shows his affection and gratitude for a little head scratching. At this point we know that he’s happy and comfortable in his new environment.”
“Mr. Cat will always have guardians to watch him now, until he grows and lives a long and happy life.”

A litter of orphaned kittens were rescued in the woods. When Shannon William’s daughter brought them home, their Boston Terrier began to nurse them despite not having been pregnant.
The kittens were found outside, cold and wet, when they were about a week old. Memory the dog used to be afraid of cats, but took in the little orphan babies and began nurturing and cuddling with the days-old kittens.
“She’s nursing them, cleaning them, carrying them around, everything.” Shannon wrote via Facebook.
“She’s been very protective from day one,” she told The Huffington Post. “On the second day that we had them, my daughter had one of the kittens in her hands. And Memory my dog took it out of her hands and carried it back to her dog bed with the other kittens.
“She would carry them up on the couch with her. If they got up and started to walk to the edge of the couch she got up, picked them up with her mouth and laid them down with her.”

A man rescued a cat from an empty house he visited while touring properties with a Realtor. “House was empty, but smelled funny. Found a full litter box in the kitchen and a cat with cabin fever on the 2nd floor. Didn’t buy house. Did take cat. His name is Scoopy,” said brianadler via reddit.
“He was hiding in the shadows and had been sleeping in a duffel bag in the closet. Scoopy was starved for attention. He drooled all over me and had gnawed all the fur off his forearms. His fur was matted and he was very obese. He was very happy to be petted.
The Realtor called the owner who said she had tried to find him a home, but no one would take him. She had been stopping by the property to feed him and change the litter box three times a week. I’m not sure how long Scoopy had been alone like that. The property has been on the market since September.
I brought Scoopy home. I couldn’t in good conscience leave him alone in that house. The owner was grateful and said I could take him.”
Scoopy hasn’t stopped purring since they brought him home. “I went to PetCo and asked the very jovial clerk what she recommended for diet food. She suggested this brand and a can of fruit. Scoopy likes it well enough.”

“Scoopy didn’t like being brushed below the equator and would impulsively chew his forearms.” So they gave him a catnip carrot to play with. He loved it.

“Scoopy goes to the vet. He had a check up and got shots for both rabies and leukemia, just to be safe. The vet said the skin irritation on his back was caused by fleas.We haven’t seen any, but bought Frontline for all three cats, just to be safe.”
