Thread: Rescuing And Taking Care Of A Group Of Injured Kittens

Very few people out in the world would put themselves, their time, and their resources aside to help an animal in need. It's a hard task, and it takes a lot. We understand that. And because we understand it, we are only more grateful to the people who do help. And today, we are especially thankful to Knowyourcats, for rescuing a group of sick and injured kittens - 4 kittens from 4 different litters. 

Animal rescues like this one are the ones we love seeing the most - when different people come together to help. It reminds us of the story in which an itty bitty injured and abandoned black kitten was rescued or when a group of neighbors got together to save and adopt a helpless stray kitten. We've seen these stories many times, and each of those times is one that we celebrate.

Of course I came rushing, and the neighbours came out of there houses, handing me 3 more sick kittens from different litters... Knowyourcats'

Thread: Saving And Adopting A Newborn Kitten With Umbilical Cord Still Attached

There can be many reasons in the wild for which even the most loving animal mommas would reject one of their babies. Nature is cruel like that. And though we don't know the exact reason behind the abandonment of this itty bitty kitty in this story, we can only be thankful that it turned out the way it did. 

Abandoned by its mom, a newborn kitten with its eyes still closedand the umbilical cord still attached to it was thankfully found by YucateCosa's neighbor. Following that, after getting lucky approximately 53 more times, this kitten found its new forever home. Thank you to YucateCosa for taking care of her and giving her the love and care that she deserved. Few could have and would have done what you did, and we are so, so thankful.

Thread: Affectionate And Goofy Scissor-Beak Chicken Strives For Best Life

Not every animal is born the same. Not every animal goes through the same experiences. And whether it's experiences that caused it to become 'imperfect', like the bobcat who was dropped on its head by a hawk as a kitten and whose favorite toy is now fennel or the dog who was previously mistreated for barking slowly learning to bork again. Or if it's some disorder, like the disabled goldfish that couldn't swim because of a bout of swim bladder. 

All these animals deserve a second chance at life, and every person who gives it to them is a hero. 

grrumble on imguris our newest hero. Dory is a chicken born with a condition called scissor-beak or cross-beak, and though she's a fighter and always strives for a better life, without grrumble, Dory would not have made it. We're truly thankful, from the bottom of our hearts that you heled save this poor helpless creature, and we hope that you guys live a long, happy life together.

Thread: Senior, Blind, Deaf And Sick Dog Finds A Forever Home

A lot of us in this community have pets - cats, dogs, parrots, and all the animal in between. We love animals. And we have animals because we love them and want to give them the best lives they can possibly have. But how far would we really go to take care of an animal? It's not easy, even if they're young and healthy. But adopting a senior pet, a blind pet, a deaf pet, or a sick pet is whole other kind of challenge. 

And what if one pet is all of those things together? Meet Nannoo. 

Nannoo's owner has recently passed away, and her family surrendered her to Nashville Humane. The shelter attempted to give her the best life they could, but nothing can really replace a forever home. Honestly, we are not sure that we would have been able to take on the task of adopting this dog, so we are truly thankful to MrPuckett for doing it and sharing the story with the world. 

We hope this wonderful senior doggo lives a long life, as healthy as can be, getting all the pets and snacks it could want.

I had never really considered adding another dog to the family, but for some reason I couldn't stop thinking about this one MrPuckett'

Thread: When A Human Gets Adopted By A Feral Cat

Pet adoption stories are always the most wholesome stories to read. Walking into a shelter and falling in love or helping a friend by taking a kitten from a newborn litter... it's our favorite kind of stories. Well, second favorite. Because what takes the number one spot for us are stories of the opposite, not of us humans adopting a pet but stories of pets adopting humans.

The story of the no-longer-feral cat that you're about to read is just like that. All it took was some love (and a little food) for a totally feral cat to decide that this human is its now. And being that we are too in love with cats for this world, this person had simply no choice but to take this kitty into its home. The rest... well, it's history. Very wholesome history.

I couldnt get close until I came back with a bunch of whopper patties. After some junk food one followed me all the way to my hotel room. I was chosen. So checkoutmypearlywhitesraaaaaaaarrrr'

Thread: Trusting Stray Cat Mom Brings Kittens To Her Chosen Human

It's not an easy feat to grain a cat's trust. Many times, cats are aloof for a while before finally choosing their human. They're defensive by nature, and they're even more defensive when they have babies. To have cat moms trust their humans with their babies is an even bigger accomplishment. It's just that sometimes, even while they're still scared, cat mommas have no choice but to look for help with the human predators that scare them.

Such is the case with the cat mom that brunion has been feeding for a while. Maybe becoming a domesticated cat wouldn't have been her first choice, but in an attempt to help her babies, she went to the food-providing human anyway. It's safe to say that, now that these kitties are living in brunion's house, brunion is not the one who fostered them, the cat is the one who fostered this human.

Thread: Stray Injured Cat Picks A Human To Adopt

Most times, adopting a pet is a conscious decision. You make plans, you go to shelters, you choose your new lifelong companion. True, you may change your mind and adopt a senior pet instead of a baby pet at the last second, but it's your choice. Except when it isn't. Sometimes, it's the animals who adopt their humans, and we can do nothing but give them the love and affection that they ask for. The following story is one of those times. 

A guy who had no plans whatsoever to have a cat could not help but give the cat food when he saw that the cat needed it, and the rest.. is history. Now, this beautiful stray cat has a forever homeof its own with the man who rescued it, and we are so happy for both of them.

What Pregnancies Look Like In The Animal World (Viral Thread)

No matter how much knowledge we have about nature, every once in a while, something will shock us and remind us how amazing nature actually is. Whether it's the incredible bonds between animals, whether it's coming across a list of beautiful animals with unusual color mutations, or whether it's something as simple yet as amazing as seeing the way pregnancies look like in nature.

Viral Thread: Heartwarming Rescue Of An Underweight Stray Cat

There are so many ways for an animal to come into your life. Sometimes, it's planned. You go into the shelter to pick a companion. Maybe it doesn't go exactly according to plan, and instead of adopting a kitten, you end up adopting a gorgeous senior cat. Other times, your cats are the ones who choose you. You see one on the street, helpless and alone, and you simply know that this one is meant to be a part of your life. 

The latter is the story of Church, the stray cat, who was rescued and adopted by FridgePants on imgur. The two of them saw each other, and that was it, fate has been decided. FridgePants did the most amazing, selfless thing in the world by saving this adorable cat and giving it the forever home that he deserved.
