Elfie The Rescue Dwarf Cat


Meet Elfie, a kitty of small stature, who was rescued from a shelter in Alberta, Canada and found his way to a forever home along with his sister Gimli. Elfie and Gimli were born dwarf kittens, rather like Lil Bub the cat.

“They have genetic dwarfism. They were born to a ‘normal’ mother in a litter of ‘normal’ cats. They just happen to be a bit more cuddly,” Willeedee of Reddit wrote. “They were adopted by my friend and his wife (Elfie & Gimli’s foster parents) who are both big supporters of adoption.”

Exercise With Cats Around


Kodi and shorty wouldn’t let their human exercise alone, so they join him. Perhaps the kitties need their own yoga mats.

Bran Nelson Threepaw The Cat With 3 Legs


Bran Nelson Threepaw has only 3 legs, but it doesn’t stop him from loving life. As soon as he gets on the floor, he starts running.

“He was found in the street at four weeks old, dragging his limp front leg behind him. They tried to massage his leg to see if it would get feeling back, but it was only causing him frustration, so they decided to amputate it from the shoulder,” said Chelsie Barnes.

“After his surgery, Bran was up and running! The adoption coordinator, Rachel G., said ‘I had to stop playing with him! He would just play so hard I worried about his stitches!’”

When Chelsie and Joshua met Bran, it was love at first sight, and the next thing they knew Bran was on his way to his forever home. “He spends his days climbing, jumping, romping, and tackling his brother Tallurah. Even though he only has three legs, he doesn’t even notice that it’s gone. In fact, I’m sure he believes that every other cat is odd because they have an extra leg!”

Finn The Ginger Cat Rescued From Freezing Cold


Meet Finn the ginger, who was found living under a cement step of an apartment building on a freezing old day.

Sheri received a frantic text about the kitten, and immediately went to the rescue. “He was a little ginger kitten, with the cutest face and the cutest little squeak of a meow. I brought him home, without knowing whether or not I was going to keep him, or give him to one of the amazing rescue organizations in my area,” she said.

She stayed up through many sleepless nights looking after the little ginger kitten, feeding him round the clock while taking care of her own furry gang. “My dog just absolutely loved him. She was so excited to have a new little friend that she could play with and protect. Soon after that, I named the little ginger kitten Finn. I guess keep down I knew that we were going to be keeping him.”
