Meet the ever-handsome orange tabby named Thor! 

Thor was born feral, and is completely blind. According to TinyKittens HQ, it's a miracle he managed to live on his own, out in the streets, for the first year of his life. 

Thankfully, Thor is now in some loving hands, and as TinyKittens HQ writes in their description, "we promise he will know nothing but love, comfort and a full belly from now on."

Thor has already gained 6 pounds, in their care, and even has a playmate named Nyla! 

"His fear instinct is quite ingrained, so it might take some time for us to help him build enough confidence with humans that he doesn't try to run and hide.  Once we have him in our laps, he is just loving being hand fed and having his ears and chin rubbed.   

Nyla is keeping Thor company until she gets her spay and eye surgery tomorrow.  She has one purrfect eye, and is very fearful in captivity, so we are hoping she will be able to return to her friends and family in our Happy Forest managed feral colony once she's fully recovered.  As with all of our ferals, we will bring her back in if she needs further medical care or if she changes her mind about life with humans."

A huge shout out and thank you to TinyKittens HQ for all their incredible and loving work they provide!

Philmo, the young rescued bobcat has been taken into the vet for a surprise visit. Philmo was developing mats on his hind end, and it's unncommon for a bobcat as young as himself to do so. 

Big Cat Rescue decided to look into the matter quickly, taking Philmo to the vet where they discovered he has kyphosis. 

Kyphosis is described online as "excessive outward curvature of the spine, causing hunching of the back."

Thankfully, Big Cat Rescue saw there was a problem and immediately cared for Philmo! Philmo will be receiving pain management and hopefully things will turn around! 

Thanks Big Cat Rescue for truly caring for all these gorgeous animals! Big Cat Rescue is an educational non-breeding, accredited, sanctuary and a registered non-profit 501c3 so your donations are tax deductible!

Kind-Hearted Woman Rescues Puppies From Suitcase And Cares For Them

A kind-hearted Imgur user, that goes by the username tayrclark, has taken on quite a big responsibility. 

Eight puppies to be exact. When tayrclark went to give dog supplies to homeless pet owners living within tents, one tent she came across had a suitcase filled with puppies. She later returned that night to check up on the puppies, bringing with her some milk, bottles and some food for the momma. 

And even though their owner was doing a great job of caring for them, tayrclark offer to help the owner find these pups stable loving homes. The next day, the owner asked if she could foster them. And without hesitation, tayrclark accepted. 

However, care for eight puppies is no easy task...

Aussie Teens Rescue Koalas In Fire Zone And Load Them Into Their Car

Two Aussie teens, 19-year-old Micah and 18-year-old Caleb, have been named heroes for driving around and loading up their car with injured koalas, in Kangaroo Island. 

Storyful reported that the teens delivered the koalas to their neighbor, who has a permit to care for wildlife.

Micah Lovegrove, one of the heroic teens, decided to go on this impromptu rescue mission after witnessing a koala with nowhere to go, when his uncle's property burned down. 

In a video first posted on Reddit, you can see a car filled with poor, exhausted koalas. And in the background, an eerie sight of a road that is lined by blackened trees. 

Unsure of how many koalas they rescued, they assume it's around 20 and of that 20, six of the poor marsupials were orphaned and two of them were mothers with children.

Still, that's 20 more koalas saved. And we're beyond thankful to both Micah and Caleb. 

It is very important to mention that these koalas from Kangaroo Island were not taken to the mainland where they could be affected by Chlamydia and therefore unable to return back to their home on the Island. 

Chlamydia in koalas can cause blindness, bladder inflammation, infertility and death. As the island's koalas are isolated and free of the disease, its introduction would devastate the population.

"It's understandable and heartening that people want to rescue these animals, but unfortunately it will mean that those koalas can't be returned to the island because of the risk of contamination of the population there," said Brenton Grear, Department for Environment and Water bushfire recovery coordinator.

If anyone out there reads this and decided to drive and rescue koalas -- do not take them to the main land. "We ask that anyone on Kangaroo Island who finds injured wildlife call SAVEM on 0477 055 233 or email info@savem.org.au," says Grear.

We're positive Steve himself would be BEYOND proud of how hard his family is working to save the animals from this devastating fire in Australia. 

The fire in Australia has taken so much wildlife with it's destruction. However, not all hope is lost. Hope can be found in the Irwin name, where it can always be found. 

The legendary "Crocodile Hunter" has quite the incredible family who have dedicated their lives to continuing the family legacy as "wildlife warriors." And they are certainly living up to it.
