It’s raining kittens at Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA)! Rescue sister cats Kanji and Sushii recently gave birth to twelve little furballs! The two wonderful cat moms are raising their babies together. What a team!

“These mamas are inseparable and share duties caring for their newborns (such as nursing),” VOKRA writes at Facebook.

Kanji and Sushii have been inseparable since day one. They were together when they were pregnant and they are taking care of each other’s fur babies now.  “The mothers are SO loving to each other. They groom each other and nurse each other’s kittens interchangeably. Another bonus, when 1 mother needs a break, the other can be on duty,” said Elaine R. at Facebook.

“We always work hard to adopt bonded pairs together. These mamas sure are a great team, aren’t they?” VOKRA added.

Meet Kanji and Sushii the sister cats. They recently gave birth to 12 kittens and are raising them together.

Carlow and Boogie are the firecats at two fire stations in New York City. These two rescue cats rule their firehouse roosts in Manhattan. “They also keep the firehouse clear of any critters that crawl through the Big Apple,” said NYC Fire Wire.

From Carlow’s Facebook page: “My name is Carlow. I live in a firehouse in Yorkville Manhattan. Named after the local pub. I’m really a firehouse dog trapped in a cats body.”

Simon and Sammy, two rescue Oriental Shorthair kittens, traveled 8000 miles for 26 hours to get to Seattle, Washington for a chance to find their forever home.

“They were found in a trash bin when they were a few days old, and were cared for by a vet in Muscat, Oman before being transported to our shelter in Seattle, Washington,” Foster_kittens told us.

“Our shelter partners with a vet in Oman. Because of Oman’s warm climate, kittens are born year-round, and it isn’t easy to find homes for all of them. Dr. Elke Heitz and her staff at the Al Qurum Vet Clinic in Muscat, Oman raise funds to provide airfair, customs expenses, and transport to Purrfect Pals here in Washington for some of their kittens who need homes.”

They were just adopted together last week by a wonderful family. “The kitties love bossing around the two standard poodles they now live with and snuggle under the blankets with different family members at night. They even line up with the dogs at treat time.” (Instagram)

A litter of Oriental Shorthair kittens were rescued from a garbage can in Oman. Little did they know that they were about to live happily ever after, thanks to the combined efforts of Purrfect Pals and Al Qurum Vet Clinic.

A Japanese company in Tokyo hoped to help their employees unwind and increase productivity by adopting rescue cats into their office. In a cramped and hectic city like Tokyo, having a pet is often a luxury. Most apartments do not allow pets and residents have to visit cat cafes to get their pet fix.

The company named Ferray Corporation, an internet solutions business, has taken in nine rescue cats that are allowed to roam freely in the office. They become cute little balls of stress-relief.

According to rocketnews24, the employees think the cats have been an enormous net positive. Office communication has increased dramatically. The cats have brought them together and lowered everyone’s stress.

The company also encourages their workers to bring in their pets, so every day is Bring Your Pet to Work Day. If they don’t have a pet of their own, the company pays out a monthly “cat bonus” of about $42USD to anyone who adopts a cat that needs a home.

Ferray says that the most important quality they look for in new hires is a “love of felines.”

Here are the 9 rescue cats they have adopted:

They have all grown up now. Here, one is enjoying the lap time with an employee and the other one supervises.

In Rome, many stray and feral cats have found a haven amid the ruins at Torre Argentina. The Julius Caesar’s assassination site has been turned into a cat sanctuary for many homeless cats.

The Torre Argentina Roman Cat Sanctuary spay and neuter these cats and keep them healthy and fed. “People are interested more in the cats than in monuments,” says Lia Dequel, one of the shelter’s founders. “The two together are fantastic… because monuments come alive if you see a cat lying on it, or jumping from one pillar to another.” (npr)

Torre Argentina is home to about 250 feline friends, sheltered amongst the oldest temples in Rome (400-300 BC). Seven days a week volunteers from different countries, feed, clean and look after them.

In 2012 alone, they spayed and neutered 3013 cats as well as 125 cats placed in homes.

A woman from Peru has turned her two-story house into a sanctuary for sick and old cats. She treats 175 cats for feline leukemia and keeps them warm in little jumpers when it gets chilly.

Maria Torero, 45, of Lima, Peru, has turned her eight-room house into a cat hospice and spends $1,785 a month on their care according to Daily Mail.

She has built bunk beds for the kitties and are sharing all the furniture in the house with the cats, and her three children.

“I’m a nurse. My duty is to the cats that nobody cares about. People don’t adopt adult cats, especially if they are terminally ill.”

Many street cats she finds in Lima’s streets are sick, flea ridden and malnourished. She takes in adult cats to avoid spreading of the disease to new generations. She gives them medicine, sterilizes them and treats them for parasites.

All the cats are given names and when it gets cold, she gives them little jumpers to keep them warm. She said “each cat has a distinct personality.”

“My best gift of love and respect I give them in life,” she added.
