Sometimes, it takes a while for the kitten to discover and get used to its new home. But eventually, they see the loving adoptive parents that we are and give us a chance

Such is the story of Melfi, MickDuncher's adoptive kitten. For a whole week, she hid in the bedroom and didn't leave, scared of her new environment full of new humans and animals. But now, she's a happy girl, and we're happier for it.

All it takes is a little kindness to change an animal's life. This heartwarming tumblr thread proves just that. This tiny kitten, later named Nux, was found at the bottom of violetohara's stairs, and though it was a bit hard to catch the kitten at first, violetohara immediately knew that if they catch the little thing, they'll adopt her right away.

And that's exactly what happened. The kitten was sick, had burrs and sticks in her fur and was clearly unwell, but all it took is a visit to the vet and one day in her new forever home for her to start purring and become of of the cutest kittens in the whole world. Nux is still doing great, of course, because with a forever home as loving as this, who wouldn't?

Small Dog Heroically Rescued From Cliff

A lesson learned, never to be repeated again. An owner was walking her tiny 3-year-old dog a bit too close to the edge of More Mesa cliffs on Saturday when the dog slipped and rolled off the the cliff. 

Edhat santa barbara reports that the call to the firefighters came at 3:36 p.m., and the Santa Barbara County firefighters had to rush to to the area of Mockingbird Lane and Calle Las Brisas. There, they found that the little dog, named Louis, had rolled off the cliff during a walk. 

The firefighters heroically enacted a high-angle rope system in an attempt to rescue the dog, and luckily, they managed to carry the little pooch back to safety at the top of the cliff, where Louis was able to get back to his owner. Thankfully, there were no injuries. As the call to the firefighters was made right away, they were able to come help right away, but the lesson was definitely learned by all of us. 

Be extra careful with your little animals. Accidents can and will happen, it's impossible to avoid, but where possible, take extra caution because these little guys rely on us to take care of them forever and always.
