It's always a difficult thing to see, when some animals are born with less advantages than others. It could be stunning blind animals or animals born with three legs. Their life isn't exactly like the life of a regular animal of their kind. Amazingly enough, normally, these animals don't even know about their difficulties and just live their lives happily, like this adorable blind kitten.


We, their owners, know of their difficulties though. And sometimes, we are able to provide them with some extra help to give them a second chance at being a regular animal. Such is the story of this gorgeous three-legged pit bull who had his dad make him a custom wheelchair that allows him to walk again

Twitter Thread: Cats Fascinated Yet Confused By Cooked Egg

This one is a unique story: a guy with a heart of gold who feeds the stray cats in his neighborhood has run out of cat-appropriate food to give to the little felines. Yet, because of his pure goodness, because of wanting to help the stray cats, he has done what he could and gave the cats an egg. Yes, a cooked sunny side up egg, but the cats... they were not expecting it. 

Of course, in the usual twitter style - hilarity ensues. It's not the first time we've come across. Once, we saw a thread about a twitter user who was chased by a cow on Valentines day, another time, we've read about a twitter user who resurrected a bird with her breasts. Twitter is full of amazing, hilarious stories, and this egg one is going on the 'Iconic' list.

Tiny Helpless Calf Gets Rescued And Learns How To Love Humans And Hugs

When it comes to farm animals, no matter how cute they are, people don't try to save them as much, even when they clearly need help. Thankfully, there are places like the Shanti farm, who open their hearts to exactly these kinds of animals. They take in not only animals with difficult cases but also animals who others would normally not take at all, like disabled cats, horses that were thrown away after they were too tired or old to be ridden, hurt sheep, and the hero of our story today - a little 8-day-old baby calf. It was found near a calf who was on the brink of death, suckling on her dead mother's teat to survive.

"We give them hope and a respectable life," said a representative of Shanti farm to ICanHasCheezburger. "We let people meet them a fall in love with them, and we let the animals learn that they can trust and befriend humans."

Tohar the calf is one of their most amazing success stories. Read more about her below!

Most people probably wouldn't work so hard to rescue a fish, but NotaScientologiston imgurdid.

When you think of heroes, cats are probably not the first thing that comes up in your mind. Most of them are not known for rushing to save the humans they've chosen. But Masha, she is a special cat, and she has a really special, heartwarming story

Having come across a freezing human baby, Masha took it upon herself to save the baby. she curled up around it, kept it warm through the night, and in the morning, she strolled around and screamed until someone followed her and found the baby. She even managed to get herself into the ambulance with the baby afterward. Had it not been for her, the baby would have died. Of course, this amazing cat later on got adopted, and we can only say thank you - to her adopters because she deserves the most amazing forever home, and to her - for doing the impossible and saving the baby's life.  

tumblr thread about a cat who saved a baby from freezing thumbnail includes two pictures including one of a baby and one of a cat in a box 'This baby boy was found with a bag containing baby food and diapers on a cold winter night in Obninsk, Russia.

Thank goodness for good people. When a stray cat showed up at Steinbach Fire Department in Manitoba, Canada, the firefighters quickly noticed the cat shivering outside in the snow, peeping through their window. 

The officers opened their doors and began to shower the cat with warmth, care, and love. The stray was able to receive immunization shots and was spayed. The firefighters posted on social media, asking around if someone was missing this lovely little lady, but when no one came forth to claim her, they decided to take care of her themselves and have given her a fitting name - Ember.

Ember is often featured on the station's social media page as "Ember Alerts." But alas, the fire department wanted more for Ember and now Ember has a forever loving home. We wish every stray cat a happy ending.

When your cat runs away, that is one of the most horrifying moments. Whether you have a GPS on it or not, seeing that your cat is not home will freak out out. But what happens if your cat's GPS tracker is is going off, showing you that your cat is zooming around the neighborhood, while your cat is... right in front of you? Well, 520-year-old Andy Kindell just experienced that.

His one-year-old cat for whom he bought a £130 collar with a GPS tracking chip, came home one day without the collar and with a nasty injury on its paw, reports Aol. Naturally, Andy was relieved, but he still wanted to find the GPS collar and get it back, so, he went on a chase. And a chase it was, because apparently, the collar was "eaten by a rat."
