A brave volunteer went headfirst into a drain pipe filled with rushing water to rescue a kitten in danger. Safety precautions were taken to protect the volunteer, a makeshift dam was used to slow the amount of water in the storm drain and she was tied to a rope so that she could be saved if the rescue didn't go as planned. Luckily for the kitten, who has been named Stormy, everything went well. A firefighter helped Stormy recover by giving her a little oxygen mask that helped her breathe. She's now doing well in foster care and someday she'll be able to be adopted by a loving, permanent home. She looks like she's recovering quickly.

The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Haifax, Nova Scotia had a special employee named Erik the Red.  He worked as a particularily effective rodent control officer aboard the CSS Acadia, a 102-year-old ship moored outside the museum for display. He has become loved by visitors and coworkers alike but at around 18-years of age, he's ready to retire to a quit life in the country.

They aren't about to let him go without a party of course so the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is organizing a big send off on September 20 on his behalf.

This criminal feline has made a habit out of stealing from his neighbors and stashing the goods in plain sight back home. His favorite objective? Shoes.

This dastardly villain is brazen enough to pose happily amongst his stolen trophies.

Just look at that fearless expression. This is the face of a ruthless evildoer who thinks he can never be stopped...and perhaps he's right.

Millie the cat has been climbing ever since she was a kitten on her owner Craig Armstrong's shoulders.  He trained her to go with him on his mountain climbing and hiking trips. Now she wears a harness and fearlessly climbs mountains and leaps on boulders. 



Sometimes she's able to go off harness and climb as high as she wants.
 


Often she's also allowed to lead the way as her owner hikes behind her making sure she doesn't get into trouble.

This lucky cat spent one hour underwater in a sunken boat on Lake Havasu between California and Arizona and lived through it. She was tucked away in a compartment on the boat and was found by chance after the boat was taken back to shore in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The owner of the boat said she didn't belong to him so the local Humane Society took her in and named her River. 

Since she isn't microchipped the humane shelter is waiting five days for any possible owners to claim her. After that time River will be up for adoption. Hopefully she can find a home much farther inland.

This dapper calico named Tama had a very important role as the station master of an electric railway station in Japan. After eight years on the job, she was laid to rest in a beautiful ceremony which 3,000 co-workers, admirers and friends attended. 

As you can see, she took her job very seriously. The Kishi Railway Station where Tama worked was nearly shut down, leading to her adoptive owner, a local grocer, to be named station master in 2006 to cut costs. A year later Tama took over the role.

Her popularity as station master is credited for saving the station. She even has her own merchandise.

Fortunately a new station master has been named. Tama had an apprentice who is ready to take over the job. She is also a calico cat, her name is Nitama and by the way she's wearing that station master hat, it looks like she's up for the challenge.
