Stray Kitten Finds His Best Friend

A tiny homeless kitten strayed into the heart of a cat lover. “This stray kitten eluded me for a week and a half until (one) night. He couldn’t be sweeter,” said her human via reddit.

He was a stray that was probably wandered off from his cat mother. “I have managed to corner him and get him to eat but I could never get close enough to grab him with out worrying about hurting him. I began leaving food but it was obvious the other strays were eating it. Finally I was walking out with his food and he was sitting high up on a post. I picked him up off of it but he was just bones and flesh and couldn’t put up much of a fight. He has been wonderful ever since. Big appetite. Adventurous. Mostly naps. Loves to snuggle/nuzzle/be near my fiancé and I.”

After treating the kitten’s cold since he had been out in the rain, they introduced him to their beloved cat Tyrol. The relationship was rocky at first. “Especially as the new kitten quite promptly took to us, robbing Tyrol of our usually less divided attention.” But the kitten, whom they dubbed Brak, was very eager to win Tyrol’s affections. 

“He worked up to it less gently than Tyrol was truly comfortable with but it seemed to be working…. They’ve had their tiffs but seeing how close they are (now) is really just amazing.”

Zippy the Little Red-Head

One day a stray cat turned up at Elyce Feliz’s door steps. “She is one of the sweetest and most affectionate little cats I’ve ever come across,” said Elyce. She named her Viva because she is a little diva.

As Elyce was trying to find her a good home, she noticed that Viva’s belly was getting rounder each day. “It’s not because we’ve been overfeeding her. She’s pregnant,” wrote Elyce on her flickr.

On January 10, 2011, five little furry babies were brought into this world. One of them is a little oddball named Zippy.

“Zippy is the only red-head in the litter of Viva’s five kittens. She is usually first to wake up for dinner, and very feisty when claiming a spot on Mama’s tummy.

She is the most vocal of the kittens. Her eyes began opening first, at just a week old.”

“Zippy is the first kitten to get her curiousity and motor skills together and climb to the top of the laundry basket – she is ready to go exploring! In addition to being photogenic, she is one of the most active and responsive of Viva’s kittens – she loves to have her tummy tickled .”

He Was Left To Die Under A Log…Until He Was Sniffed Out By An Unlikely Angel

We came across the story of Roscoe through an image sharing site. A young woman named Lia, along with her boyfriend, rescued and saved the tiny kitten.

The story actually begins with Lia’s puppy Opie finding Roscoe in a field behind their apartment building.  Poor Roscoe was found under a log and covered with maggots. Opie refused to leave the baby kitten, and before they knew it they were bringing him home.

As you can see from the photographs, Roscoe went from near death at only 2 days old to a healthy young cat. We commend his rescuers and owners for loving and caring for this beautiful creature back to optimal health.  We also commend his best dog friend Opie for sniffing him out and never leaving his side.  I’m sure they’ll be the best friends forever!

A little furry crew member: a tiny rescued kitten prowls around TV station.

KENS 5 & Kens5.com employees found quite the cute surprise hiding under a vehicle in their back parking lot. The precious kitten was about a week old or so. KENS 5 Facebook friends were asked to give her a name. They voted and chose Kensie. Little Kensie was rescued by KENS 5 National Sales Manager Jana Willborn and, according to the KENS 5 Facebook page, they decided that they will keep the rescued kitten.

Yesterday my husband Alexandre found a young Magellanic Penguin at the beach! He was surfing when he saw the penguin. The poor little guy was very exhausted and barely able to lift his head. Alexandre took the penguin and put him on his surfboard (yes, the penguin had to surf a little bit) and came back to shore. At home he called the Instituto Argonauta, in Ubatuba (North of São Paulo, Brazil). The biologist, Dr. Danilo Camba, said we must keep the penguin warm and dry in a box, with towels. He arrived about 40 minutes after we called him and took the penguin to the veterinary hospital. In this album you can see the pictures of the little penguin and my cat Pelanca (the penguin babysitter, very proud of herself). Definitely one of the most beautiful things that ever happened to us.  :)

"The Magellanic penguin (Spheniscus magellanicus) lives along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of South America. The eastern population breeds in large colonies in Argentina and migrates north as far as Southwest Brazil between March and September. Some are rescued, rehabilitated, nursed back to health. Scientists believe that climate variations altered ocean currents and where penguins could find food, requiring them to travel farther from shore. There, younger and inexperienced birds were taken by strong currents and ended up in Brazil, thousands of miles away from their home. In addition to being exhausted, some penguins were coated with oil and seemed to be suffering from pollution-related illness."
