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.

Wounded And Sick Stray Cat Gets Rescued And Completely Transforms

All it takes to transform the life of an animal sometimes is a little love and care. 

Nur Hamizah Had, born in Kuching, shared the heartwarming story of her stray cat on Facebook group called Kelab Pencinta Kucing Malaysia. As reported by SAYS, the story of her journey with this cat began last year when she found the cat wondering outside her home, wounded, alone and begging for food. 

"She was so pitiful to look at. Her skin was infected and wounded and she smelled very bad," says Nur Hamizah, adding that the cat was all skin and bones, looking absolutely terrible. Today, after a year under Nur Hamizah's care, the cat has transformed into an absolute beauty - healthy and happy. 

Read more of their story below!

People Tweet About Changing Their Minds And Adopting A Senior Pet At The Last Second

Most people, when going to adopt a pet, tend to go for the little ones- the baby kittens and puppies who they'll get to raise into their families. And of course, while every adoption and every rescue is to be celebrated, it's important to remember to adopt senior and sick pets too. And sometimes, it happens that this understanding comes to you as you're already in the shelter, about to pick up your tiny new baby, and then an older one-eyes cat looks at you, and finds its way right into your soul.

A tweet sharing a story like that went viral, and other twitter users with similar stories chimed in, sharing their own stories of last minute changes to adoption plans- ones that ended with them picking up the less fortunate animals and giving them a warm home too. 

So, bring in the tissues and let your heart warm with joy.

Stray Cat In Turkey Brings Her Sick Kittens To Vets For Help

There's no love like a mother's love! And that just continues to be more apparent and true with each passing day. 

In a hospital in the Karabaglar district in Izmir, Turkey, the staff often feed a pregnant stray cat and they weren't aware she had given birth until she came straight up to them carrying her kitten. Let's call it mother's intuition, when it comes to making sure your little one is safe, parents' instincts will naturally kick in. And that doesn't matter if you're not human, as we can tell from this amazing story. 

In an incredible video currently making noise on social media, this stray mother is filmed carrying her kittens into the vet. In the beginning, veterinarians in Izmir didn't understand the stray cat's motive. The stray cat had brought them a kitten one day, and another one the following day, said to be constantly meowing.

Neglected Sick Kitten Finds New Forever Home (Viral thread)

At 9 months old, Bently's owners discovered that he was very sick. Now, you would want the story to continue with them doing everything they can to help him and save him, but these owners were not that. Having found out that the procedures the kitten needed would cost them 800$, these owners opted to leave the clinic with just the exam. Thankfully, imgur user forte10 came to the rescue, offering to take the kitten off their hands and take care of it as if it was their own. 

So, this story has a hapy ending after all. The kitten got the help that he needed and is now a happy guy who loves nothing more than chilling with his new family. 

We want to thank forte10 for helping this poor kitten and for sharing their story. We want nothing more than to hear more of those. If you have a pet story of your own to share, come tell us about it in our Facebook group: ICanHas Storytime

Rufus's story is one of incredibly kind people, a strong dog never willing to give up, and just a little hint of luck. 

What started with Lauren Conley losing her dear dog last Memorial Day ended with her saving the life of another dog - one who was very much in need of love. Rufus, a poorly senior dog was brought to a shelter by his previous owners to be euthanized, but thankfully, he was sent to a foster home instead. He was given six months to live. Luckily, he found his way into Lauren's arms, and opening her heart and home to this boy, she gave him all her love and helped him in every way that she could. And now, Rufus is finally getting better!

As she tells Cheezburger: "[W]e are dedicated to making every day he has left his birthday, Christmas, and Thanksgiving rolled into one!"

Pegasus is a giant, white, wonderful Great Dane who spends her days charming everybody she meets, and occasionally going kayaking with her owner, filmmaker Dave Meinert. Pegasus was a sick four-week old puppy when she was rescued from a backyard breeder, the only one of her siblings to survive puppyhood. The gene that causes Pegasus to be white can also lead to deafness and blindness but none of this mattered to Dave who rescued her. Dave was told that she wouldn't live long, so he did what any loving guardian/filmmaker would do and set out to document his beloved pup's life. With the help of animal behaviorist Kieron Piper, Pegasus learnt to run on a treadmill for a short time each day. Dave set up a camera in front of the machine to capture Pegasus' progress. The clips became a time lapse shot over 5 months that shows Pegasus growing bigger and stronger. Months later, Pegasus is healthy and happy. Although Meinert doesn't know how long his best friend will live, he cherishes every second he gets to spend with her in the meantime.
