Meet Kairi, a tiny survivor, who was found on the road just hours after she was born. “She’s almost four weeks old now. My husband and I found her crawling across the road a few hours after she was born. She had her umbilical cord and placenta still attached,” said Rachel via reddit.

They took the tiny baby home and gave her food, a warm place to nap and plenty of love. “She sleeps in a rubbermaid tub next to me and gets fed every 2-3 hours,” she said. “I haven’t gotten much sleep in a while, but she’s so worth it.”

“We decided not to name her until she opened her eyes in case she didn’t make it. Her name is Kairi!”

“I’m crazy in love with her and she’s been doing great!”

Starbuck the cat used one of his nine lives after he was rescued from a burnt condo complex by the Greensboro, North Carolina firefighters.

Firefighters and a police sergeant did everything they could to make sure the cat could survive. They used an oxygen mask to revive Starbuck and placed him in a jacket to transport him to After Hours Veterinary Emergency Clinic for care.

“We were all pretty much screaming and crying, because I had no idea all the footage existed of them bringing him out,” said Mark Bramlett, Starbuck’s owner.

“He’s my survivor; he’s my little survivor.”

“The only problem is there’s not really a home to take him to now, but as long as he’s with me,” Bramlett added.

He was just 4-6 weeks old when he was seen thrown from a moving car. A kind person picked him up and realized that he needed more care than she could provide, so she turned him over to CatSnap. They named him Maverick.

He was injured in multiple areas and was significantly dehydrated. Despite 6 broken bones, he continued to eat, drink and use his litter box. They sent him to surgery to have his left front leg fixed. Maverick would purr and snuggle with his caregivers after the procedures. In just 3 short weeks, his bones healed.

All his legs work just fine now and his other broken bones have also healed. Today Maverick is a healthy, happy and lovable kitten. [Watch video below]

Justin the kitten had a rough start in life after he was terribly burned at the age of 5 weeks old. This brave little kitty fought his way back from the brink of death and is on his way to recovery.

The little tuxedo kitty suffered multiple burns over one-third of his body. His ears had to be amputated and he was put in laser treatment to help his wounds to heal.

The Animal Alliance of New Jersey took in little Justin and provided all the love and care he needed to get better quickly. With a lot of hard work from the shelter staff and the vets, Justin started to turn around. He began to eat and his playful side started to show.

During the recovering process, Justin’s coat grew back in the previously bald patches. He also put on some weight and is now looking much healthier and happier.

With a lot of love and hard work, the kitten is turning around and recovering. She’s also made bonded with their family dog and a bird. The dog is very caring and protective of her and the bird keeps her company.

Olly the cat owes his life to a group of volunteers from Brasov/Rumania who called Animals Need Us for the rescue. Olly is a fighter who survived against all odds.

“Last year in March, I fell in love with a picture of a little cat with beautiful big brown eyes… They found him in an area frequented by homeless people. He laid on the ground and couldn’t walk or stand up,” said Iris.

Olly came in rough shape. They weren’t able to save his tail, but after many visits to the vet, Olly finally learned to walk again. “Now I was able to get him to adopt to the 929 km distants Vienna. At the first moment Olly and Coco, my other cat were acting like brothers.”

During one of their many vet visits, a chest X-ray revealed that Olly had a diaphragmatic hernia and he had to be operated on soon. “We were very sad and could not believe it. Olly must have had gone through a lot in his past,” Iris added.

They took him to a special vet. The surgery lasted for 3 hours. Olly went home in a cone. “Olly didn’t like his ruff. So we made him a sweater from my old shirts. He looked so cute. And a short time later, he felt asleep. The stitches on his chest and on his tail healed very quickly.”

“Every day we are so glad that Olly is alive and we could spend our time with him. Despite his terrible past, he is so strong and so sweet.”

When Chester the ginger cat was adopted from the shelter, his new family realized there was still much work to be done to help the little ginger get back on his paws. They found out that Chester needed a lot of medical treatment and surgery, but they never gave up on Chester no matter what. It changed his life forever. This is Chester’s journey to a full recovery:

On January 30, 2012. The night when Chester was adopted. It was love from the very start.

“He couldn’t lay in any other position, never played, never ate, and was always sick.” They started taking him to a vet since beginning, but they weren’t helpful.

4 months later, they switched to another vet who found out what happened to Chester. The little guy had been hit by a car in the past. “He had a chronic diaphragmatic hernia and needed expensive and risky surgery to live a full life.” The couple packed up and drove all the way from Canada to Washington State University.

After the surgery, Chester was in rough shape and put in ICU for 6 days. The couple camped in a park in their car while waiting. They visited Chester twice a day to give him all the love and comfort they could supply.

The vets at WSU fell in love with Chester, and made him a custom eye mask out of gauze so he could get some sleep and recover.

The surgeon told the couple that the injury was most likely caused by a car accident at least a year before the surgery. “So he was living on the streets in this condition for at least 7 months. The strength it took to stay alive for that long while being basically paralyzed, I will never understand,” said Chester’s human dad.

Home sweet home. “Lots of heat packs for faster recovery.” He was very tiny at the time.

“because of the blood pressure crash, blood couldn’t get to his back right foot.” But they were able to save most of it. The couple couldn’t afford any more surgery, so they started a fundraiser.

“Three weeks later, the surgery was paid for and Chester had two less toes.”

They cleaned his foot and changed a new bandage for him three times a week.

Sometimes he gets to clean it himself.

Before surgery, he wasn’t able to lay on his back, but now he can do whatever he wants whenever he wants.

“His foot is fully healed, he can sleep comfortably, and he’s gained 2 kg (4.4 lbs) since his stomach can now expand properly.”

“A year later, healthier than ever, happy and loved.”
