Sweet-Faced Kitten Finds Forever Home And Endless Love

Be still our hearts! This sweet-faced kitten is so gosh darn adorable, we're melting right where we stand. 

Meet Penelope Fern, a kitten born was a cleft lip who was found outside all alone. She was brought into Meow Village, an all-volunteer feral cat rescue organization located in Aurora, Oregon.

Meow Village told Love Meow, "A TNR (trap-neuter-return) rescuer spotted her while out trapping cats for spay and neuter. It was obvious that the kitten would need extra assessment. A few calls were made and she was in the arms of a Meow Village volunteer within hours."

After a nice, warm bath to get rid of the fleas, the sweet kitten was feeling better and soon dozed off into a peaceful sleep with a belly full of food. 

Selina, a volunteer at Meow Village told Love Meow, "This kitten has a loving sweet spirit. She eats and drinks just great, and it took no time for her to learn the litter box."

Next the kitten was taken to see a specialist about her condition and she was diagnosed with hydrocephalus (water on the brain), blindness, and ataxia (a neurological condition). It is likely more of her symptoms will appear as she ages and she will need special care because of it. However, Penelope is just as happy as any other cat and shows zero signs of suffering. 

Desirae, a staff member at the veterinary hospital, saw Penelope and fell madly in love with her.

Sweet Special Kitten Nudges Her Way Into Reluctant Man's Heart

What an absolute angel of a kitten! 

Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, a rescue group in Charleston, West Virginia, got an 8-month-old kitten brought in who was born without a left eye or nostril. The kitten also had a bobtail and asymmetrical brain. 

Board member of Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, Kathy Lucas, told Love Meow, "We immediately fell in love with that sweet face. It was determined that her left eye did not develop and she has no nasal passage or cavity on the left. She sees and breathes on her right."

"As one vet stated, 'she is who she is' and she is a sweet, trusting, petite girl with a lot of personality,"

They named the adorable little lady, Zara. And this is Zara's story (soon to be named Idgie) of how she nudged her way into the heart of a man reluctant to adopt another cat.

Cats Who Forced Their Way Into A Forever Home

Sometimes, it's not you who adopts the cat, it's the cat who adopts you. 

Here are a handful of stories in which cats decided to take matters into their own paws and get that forever home by force. And most of the time, it totally works. I mean, who can resist a cat that has decided you are their human? That's pretty freakin' special if you ask us. 

Cheers to all those who were adopted by stray animals!

Happy Friday, everyone! Welcome to our favorite weekly feel-good stories -- adopted faces of the week! And this week we are featuring a bunch of newly adopted one-eyed beauties! Thanks to those who saw these precious babies and gave them a chance.

We love seeing animals finally finding their forever homes, especially older animals who have less of a chance of being adopted. We would like to thank all those who have adopted in the past, adopting in the present, and will adopt in the future. You all are our heroes. 

Start the weekend off in the best way possible, by seeing these loving pets faces and how happy they are to have a home.

Actor Dennis Quaid Adopts Cat Named Dennis Quaid

Honestly, could there be a more perfect adoption story out there? 

Lynchburg Humane Society had a black cat in need of a forever home. This cat was named Dennis Quaid. Well, the news of Dennis Quaid reached none other than the actor Dennis Quaid himself. "It was really off the wall, but I just couldn't resist. I had to," Dennis Quaid told WSLS 10 News, "I'm out to save all the Dennis Quaids of the world."

Danielle Ulmer, Adoption Center Manager at Lynchburg Humane Society couldn't believe when she heard the news, "I was like there is no way this is real, like, someone is pranking us."

Jimmy Jellinek, co-host of The Pet Show, convinced Danielle Ulmer that this was real and soon enough, a Zoom call was made where Dennis Quaid got to meet Dennis Quaid. And vice versa. 

"Maybe they should start naming animals in shelters after different celebrities and see who bites," Quaid joked. However, it's not a bad idea! And it looks like from the adoptable faces below, they're already taking Quaid up on his advice!

Meet The Newly Adopted Faces Of The Week (19 Images + 1 Vid)

Happy Friday, everyone! We love Fridays for many reasons:

1. It's the start of the weekend

2. Our original user's lolcats are featured

3. The newly adopted faces of the week, which makes our hearts melt. 

We adore seeing animals find a forever loving home. And we thank all those who adopted, in the past, present, or will do so in the future. We also want to send a special shout out to those who adopt animals who have been in the shelter for far too long, those who adopted animals who are missing limbs, or characteristics that one would consider makes them difficult to adopt. And of course, thank you to those who adopt senior animals and give them a second (and hopefully final) loving home.

Officer Rescues Kitten From The Highway

Poor little kitten must have been absolutely terrified! 

Thankfully, Officer Jason Smith of the North Kansas City Police Department, in Missouri, was on duty when the call came in! A 3-month-old kitten was stuck on the side of the highway.

When Officer Smith was driving and searching for the whereabouts of the cat, he all of a sudden spotted the little ball of fur up on the center divider, with a toy glove behind her.

Meet Jubilee, the husky who was rejected by breeders because she looked "weird," according to the rescue organization Husky House

Jubilee is a Siberian husky with a unique and unforgettable bug-eyed stare -- which has since made her viral! Reddit user, u/critterwalk, share Jubilee's picture with the Reddit community, with the title, "This is Jubilee. She just happens to look like bad taxidermy."

Thanks to her cartoon-ish eyes, Jubilee was made into an internet star overnight! 

Before her stardom, it was difficult to find someone to take Jubilee home with them, her caretakers at Husky House wrote in a Facebook post in her voice:

"Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don't know why I don't look like them,I wish I was beautiful so someone would want me to be their dog."

If that doesn't hit you right in the feels, you might want to go to a doctor to make sure you're human. 

Thanks to Jubilee's sudden stardom, her adorable face was being shared countless times and finally landed her a forever home!

Meet adventure cat, Nala, and her loving human, Dean! Deanfirst came across Nala on the side of the road while biking his way through Bosnia. Nala began to chase after Dean, and Dean obviously wasn't going to bring her along -- he was biking across the world, for goodness sake! But Nala wouldn't take no for an answer. She won't stop following Dean, and Dean decided he had to take her along on his journey.

So, Dean cleared up some space on his bike and made a little area for her to sit comfortably, as he pedaled. When they rode off, Nala decided she wanted to be closer to her chosen human and climbed onto his shoulders. Soon enough, they became inseparable travel buddies.

And now, Dean has a new bike set-up for his little furbaby -- a new and improved basket! 

"Got the basket on the bike, put Nala in and went out to test it out! so far so good, just need to see what its like in the rain!!"

WE'RE CRYING AND WE DON'T CARE WHO KNOWS IT. 

After 500 days of waiting for a forever home, this shelter dog finally gets to walk the walk of freedom! And to commemorate the beautiful moment, the Niagara SPCA animal shelter in Niagara Falls, New York, threw the six-year-old pup named Bonita the ultimate parade!

The moment was filmed and you can see Bonita leaping with joy and giving kisses to the bystanders as she finally leaves the shelter and onto her forever home! 

Bonita was the oldest guest at the shelter, having arrived August 13, 2008 and finally being adopted December 12th, 2019. 

We're so happy that Bonita will get the start the new year in a new and loving home!
