Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Zimes The Cat

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Zimes the Cat

It's two of our favorite elements put together -- black cats and bleps! 

Meet Zimes! Zimes the cat has a permanent blep. 

The cause of the permanent blep is due to a very sad story. His owner, Margot, wrote on Zimes 'About Me' section, on Facebook, "Zimes was a stray cat who got attacked by a pitbull dog, the dog was released by his owner to hurt cats. the attack caused him to lose half of his lower jaw, and this is why his tongue is always hanging outside like this. even though Zimes went through hell and saw the real face of evil, he is now happy, healthy and loved. he is living with 3 more street survivors. 2 of them are blind."

While we are so saddened that such an awful thing like this could happen, we're also so glad Zimes is in such a caring and loving home! 

Margot continues, "I love rescuing animals with special needs, to give them a chance for a happy life. this fills my soul and heart with gratitude, love and happiness, cause there is no greater love then the love of a rescued animal."

Thank you, Margot, for your big heart! 

Enjoy some adorable images and vids of the one and only Zimes! And don'r forget to follow this little lovebug on Instagram

The Beautiful Transformation Of Golden Boy Chataro

Imgur user, Jimbohere, shared his beautiful cats' journey on the platform and users were blown away by the transformation (ourselves included).

It's crazy how far a little love can go. 

Chataro's story starts off heartbreaking, "The first shot was taken 8 days after he arrived, during treatment for all kinds of skin infections and parasites. He eventually lost about 90% of his hair, but over the next few months he turned into the most wonderful long-haired puss.

All in all, he's a bit of a mess, but what a magnificent mess! I'm convinced his gold color goes all the way through to his heart, and that it rubs off on anyone who comes into contact with him."

But look how handsome this magnificent little house lion turned out! And word on the street, he's living his absolute best life!

Love is truly so powerful!

Flatbush Cats found Winston alone out in the streets, dirty and hungry. Flatbush Cats is a wonderful nonprofit organization where they rescue and rehabilitate cats off the streets in New York. They don't adopt them but they put them in foster care, where they can find their forever homes once they are healthy. 

Just a few months later he was enjoying indoor VIP life with his own new family!

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.

Thank you, kind and understanding landlord. If it weren't for you, rescue cat Bruce Willis wouldn't be in his forever home.

This sweet little kitten was all alone out in the streets, hungry and cold. That is, until a kind-hearted human, named Dessy, heard her cry for food. 

Heartbroken by the sound, Dessy turned back home to go grab some cat food. While the little butterball was scarfing down the food, Dessy had already decided he was going to rescue her. 

With the carrier, Dessy brought back the stray kitten to his home for some tender love and care.

What a great friend! Upon seeing the dog trapped in the shower, awaiting the dreaded shower, this cat does what any friend would do -- help the poor pup escape from it's fate! 

Unfortunately, not all fates can be escaped. At least the cat stayed beside his friend the entirety of the bath, though!

If that's not friendship -- we don't know what is!
