Blind Feral Kitten Reunited With His Half-Blind Brother

A true Christmas miracle! A 14-week-old kitten with no eyes was rescued by the RSPCA and reunited with his half blind brother. 

As the RSPCA reports, the blind kitten, later named Gabriel, despite having no eyes, is completely healthy. It is assumed that Gabriel had the cat flue, and so it is a miracle in and of itself that he survived. 

Krissy Raine, the RSPCA inspector who rescued Gabriel, explained: "It's amazing that Gabriel survived. I took him to a vet and they believe he had cat flu which left his eyes badly damaged and they perished. But he is very healthy, he needed no treatment from the vets at all." She continued: "Even though he was from a feral colony when I took him to the vets, they were shocked by how calm and friendly he was and instantly fell in love with him. We named him Gabriel as he is an absolute angel and everyone who meets him adores him!" 

That's not all though. A second miracle happened when Gabriel was brought into the shelter. There, he met another half-blind cat who was rescued a few weeks prior from the same area. Arthur is also believed to have had the flu which damaged one of his eyes. That eye had  to be removed through surgery, but thankfully, his other eye was saved. 

When Gabriel was brought into the shelter, "[t]he brothers instantly recognised each other."

And today, they are living together in the same foster home. "Gemma couldn't believe it when she realised she had rescued his brother a few weeks before and we knew we had to reunite them. Arthur was being looked after by a foster family and they were so excited to hear that his brother had been rescued - they welcomed him with open arms too. They are both with the same foster family now, they are such calm, caring and affectionate cats - such special little angels. Now that they are back together, Arthur can guide Gabriel through life."

The brothers will now be looking for a forever home where they will hopefully be able to live together. "It's a Christmas miracle for Gabriel and Arthur - we're just so pleased that they are together for Christmas Day, it's the perfect gift for them."

We wish this pair of angels luck in their new lives and a forever home in the new year! For more positive animal stories, take a look at our collection of the best animal news stories of 2020!

Cats As The Shiniest Christmas Ornaments

Welcome to Christmas - the holiday that every cat loves the most. The house is covered in shiny things, there's a tree inside of the house, so. much. excitement. is happening. But, while we're thinking about ways to fortify our trees against our cats, our cats are choosing their own favorite Christmas decorations, namely, themselves. 

Because we know that the best Christmas ornament in our house is inevitably going to be our cat. And we also know that we can't really be mad at them for it. We'll be taking pictures first and removing our cat ornaments second - prioritizing correctly.

In a now-viral video, we witness a beautiful white rabbit sniffing away at a tiny snowman before it begins chomping away on its delicious dinner - a carrot nose! 

This video was taken by the family who built the tiny snowman, in the Cambrian Heights suburb of Calgary, Canada, Sheila Bryant, who recorded the video told CBC, the rabbit was "Just giving the snowman a kiss."

HuffPost shared a poem that was very fitting for the occasion, "There was a little snowman Who had a carrot nose. Along came a rabbit, And what do you suppose? That hungry little rabbit, Looking for his lunch, Ate the little snowman's nose ― Nibble, nibble, crunch!"

Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate!

Pets Experiencing Their Very First Christmas

We all love Christmas. It's magical, it's cheer, it's joy, it's gifts and ornaments and time away from work and with our pets and families. Our pets, of course, love Christmas too. Even if they don't understand exactly what's going on, they can feel our happiness and cheer, and it brings them happiness and cheer too. 

Every year, we celebrate our Christmases with our pets, making sure to of course leave a little gift for them as well, but there's something unique and oh so special about a pet's first Christmas. Whether they were just born and are experiencing it for the first time, or if they were just adopted, the joy that Christmas brings them passes right back into us. 

It's a circle of joy: happy us - happy pets, happy pets - happy us. 

Please enjoy these pictures of pets experiencing their first Christmas and have a happy new year, everyone!

We love it when animals within zoos get a special treat for any occasion or holiday. Sometimes, zoos provide animals with popsicles when it gets way too hot out! It's the little things and we're positive these animals are thankful for any little gift or treat that comes their way. 

This year, Syndey's Taronga Zoo, in Australia, has decided to get the animals into the holiday spirit with some classic Christmas decor, and an early delivery of Christmas-themed food! 

Happy Holidays!

"Merry Christmas, you filthy animals!" Name the best Christmas movie of all time... we're both thinking of Home Alone, right?  If not that's OK, we're all allowed to have different opinions after all. 

OwlKitty, the cat parody legend is back and this time has made her way into the classic Christmas film, Home Alone. OwlKitty has been in parodies of various films and popular ty shows over the years, and each parody is simply incredible. Including this one. Not only is this parody of re-imagining what Home Alone would be like if OwlKitty was involved, but it's filled with Holiday spirit and we're definitely feeling that this week! But let's be honest with ourselves, Home Alone would be such a different movie if Kevin had a cat. The Wet Bandits wouldn't have made it out of the kitchen.

For those of you wondering who OwlKitty really is, her name is Lizzy, and she is a three-year-old cat living in Portland, Oregon.

Cat Medley: Cuteness Galore, Funnies, Holiday Cheer And More

It's been a long, weird year and we have to say thank you. A huge thank you to our beloved cats for keeping us sane during all these super weird times. What would we have done cooped up all day and night in lockdown without our animals to provide us with comfort? We don't even want to think what this year would've been like without them. 

This is a thank you to all the cats out there who didn't have to do anything but just be there. This medley consists of cat funnies, cat cuteness (naturally), some holiday cheer, and other adorable and silliness in-between. 

Give your pets some affection today to show them just how much you appreciate them. And to those who lost a pet this year, our hearts are with you and we are thinking about you. Your beloved pet may be gone but never forgotten.

Adorable Kitten Purrfectly Camouflaged In Beautiful Christmas Tree

An adorable kitten has completely camouflaged herself in a jam-packed Christmas tree and she's actually quite difficult to spot

Introducing Moon, the feisty 13-week-old white British Shorthair who loves to climb and has amused people around the globe with her Christmas tree antics! Moon's owner, Sarah Nelson McGuiness, from Liverpool, has shared the image online and has seen gone viral. 

McGuiness told Daily Mail, "I shared it online for a bit of fun. Friends have messaged saying "please tell me where is she" because it was racking their brains. Some have spent over ten minutes looking for her and said it is driving them mad."

Truth be told, we had a lot of trouble ourselves spotting this camouflage master! McGuiness continued, "'If she isn't stealing the baubles to play with - she is up the tree. She's fell asleep in it a few times. I do take her straight out when I notice her in the tree because I would hate for her to fall. I think she likes being in the tree because she can see everyone but we can't see her."
