Car Partially Dismantled In Order To Rescue Stray Kitten

This is one lucky kitten!

Zoe Slocombe's parked her car in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, when all of a sudden she heard a kitten's meow outside from her lounge. She went out and searched her car for the kitten but couldn't find the little guy. Turns out, the kitten, who was nicknamed Sparky, was firmly wedged in the engine compartment!

Zoe and her father quickly got to work and took the front part of her car apart to rescue Sparky. She told BBC, "It was dark and we were doing this by torchlight, but we finally saw a tiny furry bum inside the grille. But we did have to prod him a little to persuade him to wriggle free".

According to Zoe, her and her father took out the wheel and the headlights so they can reach Sparky.

Thankfully, they were about to rescue him with no harm done. Zoe wrapped Sparky up in a blanket and now he is in the care of the RSPCA. Julie Eastham, Cromwell Vets practice manager, informed BBC that Sparky was "riddled with fleas, and very hissy and spitty."

Regardless, she continued, "[Sparky] is very lucky to have been found, as at his age, being alone could be dire and he is unlikely to have survived."

At this time it is unknown if Sparky is feral, but Julie Eastham has confirmed that the stressed and scared kitten has quickly turned into a "a real cutie - really purry - so we hope he will find a good home soon".

We hope so too! Thank you to Zoe Slocombe and her father, and Mrs Eastham! You guys rock!

This poor cat somehow got trapped very close to a body of water and was found crying for help. Thankfully, there's a lot of good people in the world and they were able to find a rope, throw it over the ledge for the cat to grab a hold of. According to The Times of India, the rope came at the nick of time as it seemed the cat had almost given up hope on finding a person who would care enough to help. 

The cat is now safe, and we're very thankful for that.

This Nanny Stole A Family's Aging Cat To Rescue Him From "The Needle"

Here's a brave and caring woman, Rebecca Katz, who couldn't let the family she nannied for euthanize their aging cat. Katz says she heard her employers threatened the 15-year-old Tabby cat named Tigger with "the needle" every other day. 

It got to a point where Katz was afraid to come into work and finding out Tigger was gone. "For a few years, I've been crying because I didn't know that the cat would be there the next day," said Katz.

She offered to take the senior cat and give him the proper care he needs, but the family refused. 

So she did what she felt she had to do -- steal Tigger.

Owner Tries To Euthanized His Overweight Golden Retriever, Now The Dog Has A New Home And Lost Over 100lbs!

Shame on this dogs previous owner for trying to get the vets to put him down -- just because he was overweight! Truly disgusting.

Thankfully, when the previous owner brought the golden retriever, named Kai, to the vet, the vet immediately contacted the Misfits of Alberta Animal Rescue, which helped put Pam Heggie together with Kai. Their goal was to help Kai lose that dangerous weight and find him a home where Kai would be given the TLC he so clearly deserves.  

Heggie, his new foster mother, has told Good Morning America that she didn't know much about Kai and his past, but knew he needed help. The vet told Heggie that Kai was the most overweight animal she has ever seen, and that "anything you do is gonna help that dog."

Kai first weighed a whopping 172 pounds before Heggie stepped in and helped him lose more than half of his body weight!
