A group of hunky men from all walks of life volunteered their time posing with their furry kitten friends to help their shelter in a fundraiser and bring up the awareness of shelter animals and adoption.

“The Kittendales project was conceived in early 2007 when the board of directors at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue was brainstorming about how to raise money for their cat shelter. Chris Crotty, one of the founding members of the shelter decided it would be a good idea to put together a calendar of hunky men and cats. The concept was proposed to photographer Joanne Berman, who offered to shoot the calendar at no cost. Susan Davis, a board member at the time, offered to coordinate and give freely of her time to make the calendar happen. Susan and Joanne made it their “pet” project, and in the Spring of 2007, their hunt for a few good men began! The response from the guys was overwhelming. Their willingness to donate their time, and desire to be a part of this venture, for the benefit of the kitties, was extraordinary!” (Kittendales.com)

A stray ginger and white cat visits his unlikely friend, a cow, every day on a dairy farm in Isreal. Sometimes when he comes over, the cow welcomes him with a slobbering kiss.

“We live on a kibbutz and have a cowshed with a designated area for the young calves. There are also three stray cats in the area,” said Yochi Aranov Zwilling. They come to the farm everyday for food.

“One of them usually wanders off to see the calves once it has had its breakfast, looking for love and affection. I spotted this interaction between the cow and cat one morning on my daily walk and now make a point of looking for them each day,” he added.

The kitty often walks into the farm as a dry kitty but walks away with dripping wet fur. Clearly they adore each other as they are often seen giving each other love and affection.

Ever since the cat met the cow, he hasn’t missed a single day of visiting his best pal.

“The cat has found his own way of getting the love and affection he is yearning for.”

A small black and white kitten was found in a stick pile when he was only 2 weeks old. They brought him into their home and became his forever family. This is his adventure from being an orphan to the happiest cat he can be.

After finding the kitten, they put him in a box and waited for hours for the mother cat to return, but she was nowhere in sight. “He had already been screaming for hours and it was getting cold so we took in the little puff,” said imgur user justrunaway.

Matilda, a regal Ragdoll cat, is a revered and loved staff member at the Algonquin Hotel in New York City. She is very popular with their guests. “She has the run of the house (except in dining areas and the kitchen) but prefers to oversee the comings and goings of the many guests who cross her threshold,” said the hotel.

In the 1930s, a stray cat wandered into the Algonquin Hotel and decided to settle down there. That’s when the hotel started a tradition which has lasted since then – having a cat roam the halls, mousing and making sure everything is in order.

Matilda has many human fans from around the world who often write her letters and some have featured her in numerous stories. When her collar went missing, the “Algonquin Cat-Burglary” became the talk of the town.

On the day they took off his cast, he explored around the back yard. It was a lot of fun for the fluffy boy to be able to walk and run freely again.
