Seven, a sweet little kitten, was found in a box of discarded Christmas decorations in a communal corridor of a tower block in Wandsworth, London.

She is about 3-4 months old. They named her ‘Seven’ because she was found on the seventh floor of the building on January 7th at around 7PM according to RSPCA.

“Seven was found as a terrified little ball inside a litter tray, on top of a huge cardboard box full of old junk and festive paraphemalia,” said RSPCA.

They brought her into the shelter and treated her infection. “She’s very lovely and purrs at the slightest touch, but is understandably a bit timid. We hope when the time is right, we can find her a new forever home which gives her the kindness she deserves.”

Meet George and Elton, two tiny ginger tabbies, found abandoned in a shed. They were in poor condition when the RSPCA took them into their care. The kitties are little fighters. They have been nursed back to health and are now wearing protective coats made of baby socks to keep them warm and safe.

The ginger boys were rescued in a shed in Osterley, west London two weeks ago. They were just a couple of weeks old but severely malnourished. The RSPCA staff hand reared the little ones round the clock and now they are on their way to full recovery. The cute little coats have helped a lot in the process.

“You may wonder about the outfits,” center manager Sian Anderson said via Daily Mail. “Unfortunately these two naughty boys have a habit of suckling each other in their sleep and making themselves sore. Our nurse came up with these fabulous outfits to help stop that habit. They are made from baby socks as they really are that small. As you can see they are very happy and not affected by them.”

George and Elton are incredibly close and can’t be separated. The RSPCA are looking for a family that can adopt both together once they are old enough.

Meg the 3-legged rescue dog became a surrogate mom to a litter of five kittens that he helped rescue from the ceiling of the Rochdale’s RSPCA animal center.

Meg who lost one of his legs after being rescued and was adopted by the center manager Jean Spencer, often accompanies her owner to work.

Last Wednesday evening, Meg was looking up at the ceiling and started whimpering as if she wanted to tell Jean that something was up there.

Jean began to investigate. When they found out that there were kittens trapped in the building’s plasterboard ceiling, they began to break it open. After hours of hard work, they made a huge hole in the ceiling where they found five kittens and brought them to safety.

“It was really unusual rescue. I know Meg and she was obviously worried about something in the ceiling so I thought I’d better have a look and it was a good thing I did. There was only a space in the ceiling cavity of about eight inches, so we had to make a big hole in the ceiling and work through the night to get them out. We think the kittens’ mom must have sneaked in through the roof to have them,” Spencer said via ITV.

The center believes that they have the kittens’ mother as they have caught a female cat that just gave birth outside the center. But the suspected mama cat will not look after her babies, so everyone at the center and the volunteers are working together to care for the kittens. Meg the 3-legged dog has been a great helper too.

“Meg is really fond of the kittens. She is really kind and gentle with them and is always licking them, it is very sweet to see,” Jean added.

Five kittens were found abandoned in a battered suitcase by a passer-by in a Cardiff back street. One of the kittens was caught in the suitcase zipper.

“The kittens, who are around nine weeks old, had fleas and dirt in their fur. One of the kittens had a sore right eye but they are in a healthy condition,” said RSPCA Cardiff And District Branch.

“The cats have been placed into our care and will be made available for rehoming…”

A couple, Sue and Brian Davie, were perplexed by meowing sound coming from their home. They called the RSPCA for help. When firefighters came, what they discovered was a litter of four tiny kittens who have been sharing their home the whole time.

Firefighters found four tiny kittens trapped beneath floorboards after tearing up the floors and breaking open the walls.

“A stray cat had got into the loft of the bungalow and had a litter. The kittens had somehow managed to drop down one by one from a hole in the loft and gone into the cavity wall and then got underneath the floorboards,” said firefighter Paul Nash via Daily Mail.

“I wouldn’t have minded if they’d had to take the whole floor up to get them out. They were tiny – their eyes and ears were still closed they were so young. It’s amazing they were all okay. The fire service was so good – they all did such a great job,” said Mrs Davie.

Two of the rescue workers are planning to adopt a kitten each when they are ready for their forever homes. All 4 kittens were reunited with their mama cat and are now in good hands at the RSPCA.

Little Molly the cat somehow managed to sneak out of her home on a Friday night last December in Bourne, Lincolnshire and climbed all the way up to the top of a house. Once she got on to the roof, she wasn’t able to get down.

A person spotted the kitten and started getting very concerned. “… the little kitten was being dive-bombed by some magpies and crows,” RSPCA reported. They contacted RSPCA, but Molly was too far up for Animal Welfare Officer Becky Harper to reach.

This is when window cleaner Nick Glover came to the rescue. Nick got a call and arrived within 10 minutes and jumped into action immediately.

Becky said via RSPCA: “He then climbed up his ladder and gently picked up little Molly and carried her back down to safety where she was reunited with her owner. She was a little cold and hungry but apart from that fine, I just hope this experience puts her off climbing on to roofs in the future – although it’s still a bit of a mystery how she managed to get up there considering how tiny she is.”

Nick gave his time to save the kitten free of charge. “He saved calling the fire brigade out and it is great that this had a happy ending,” Becky added.

A phone call left the volunteers from the RSPCA stunned after hearing that a cat has just given birth to her kittens 25ft up a tree. Keeping the kittens that high up can be dangerous if she was to get them down. The rescue went underway immediately.

“We received a call on Monday, 3 September by a concerned member of the public who had spotted mum and a small kitten poking their head out of a nook in the tree in Littleover, Derby.

After knowing the cat and her kittens were too high to reach, Sarah Burrows RSPCA Trainee Inspector called the fire department right away. “Firefighters from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service attended the scene and used ladders to climb up the tree and then place the kittens in a cat carrier…. Mum ran off, but then returned for the kittens and she was also caught and placed in the carrier,” RSPCA wrote on their website.

They named the mother cat, Squirrel. The furry family of four are doing fine and being cared for by fosterers.
