A tiny grey kitten was wandering on the road near a vacant house. “I’m a home inspector, and I drive over 100 miles a day. I don’t normally pick up hitchhikers, but today I found one I couldn’t say no to,” said redditor zdaytonaroadster.

“Found him at house that was vacant, just wandering around by the road. I was sure he’d get hit by a car. I didn’t see his mom, and it was about 90 (degrees F) out today, he was panting.”

“Stopped at a local run down gas station and got him a little water.” He found the kitten a good home and they named him Ash.

“He’s got a puppy to play with. He’s already getting spoiled.”

"Hai I am Lucy!"

Lucy (Picture we saw on the Almost Home Foundation website)

We met little Lucy on a Saturday at an adoption event. We were looking to adopt another cat, another fur friend for our three boys. Lucy who was grabbing and nibbling on her care taker at the time, caught my attention. She was very tiny and her head was smaller than half the size of my hand. Her big ears were perked up when I said “Hi!” to her. I put her in my arms, she started to purr aloud. At that point I knew I had found my kitty. It was definitely love at first sight.

Lucy was a kitten rescued by Almost Home Foundation hours before she and her littermates were being put down at a kill shelter. She was only a few weeks old. On the website Lucy says: “I love to snuggle and I purr 24/7. Considering I was hours away from being put down at a High Kill Shelter, I really love life.  Maybe that’s why I love life.”

I emailed Jessica, a volunteer from the shelter and told her how I felt about Lucy, hoping they agreed that we would be the right family for her. Several days later, Jessica got an answer from Lucy’s foster mom, Sabrina that they were happy to let us take Lucy home! I was overjoyed.

We brought Millie home on May 17, 2010. After I retired from teaching, I worked for 6 years at the local library. A group of those I worked with go to lunch monthly and one of those coworkers, our friend Heide, showed up at the May luncheon with photos of five orphaned kittens. Heide has always been active in finding homes for kitties (she has five of her own) and asked if any of those at the luncheon that day could provide a home to one or more of these adorable little cats. The next day we went to see the kittens. We were immediately drawn to a little gray one who reminded us of our dear Margo who died in 2005. Margo was a gray “dilute tabby” and it appeared that this was also the color of this new little girl. She has a distinct “M” on her forehead (more so than most tabbies) so we decided to call her “Millie.”

This Orphaned kitten was rescued 3 years ago. He was getting kitty milk from his foster mom. Look at the little ears! They are wiggling so adorably.

“When feeding orphaned kittens, you have to be careful to hold the bottle at just the right angle. Kittens should also be belly-down while eating. If kittens sit upright, they’re more likely to choke. Little Augustus started being fed on his belly and then advanced to sitting upright —
