Thread: Trusting Stray Cat Mom Brings Kittens To Her Chosen Human

It's not an easy feat to grain a cat's trust. Many times, cats are aloof for a while before finally choosing their human. They're defensive by nature, and they're even more defensive when they have babies. To have cat moms trust their humans with their babies is an even bigger accomplishment. It's just that sometimes, even while they're still scared, cat mommas have no choice but to look for help with the human predators that scare them.

Such is the case with the cat mom that brunion has been feeding for a while. Maybe becoming a domesticated cat wouldn't have been her first choice, but in an attempt to help her babies, she went to the food-providing human anyway. It's safe to say that, now that these kitties are living in brunion's house, brunion is not the one who fostered them, the cat is the one who fostered this human.

Pregnant Cat Begs Woman For Help To Save Her Kittens

If there is one thing that we have observed over our time reading animal stories is that animal mommas will do absolutely anything to save their babies, and that includes going up to the scary human predators who can hurt them in the hopes that these humans will help them instead. And this cat momma is no different - pregnant, hungry, and alone, she came up to the porch of some random person and begged for help. 

Thankfully, the human she approached saved her and her babies.

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.

When passing through a small Bulgarian village, this smol lil pupper was found laying next to a car. The helpful folks who found him saw him and immediately stopped to check out the situation. It turned out he was likely abandoned by his doggo mama or was born on the streets of this small village without help or support.

They took him home and cleaned him up! Despite fleas and some skin irritation, this tiny pupper was healthy, just in need of a good thorough washing up. He was given the full treatment. A deep shampoo and conditioning, and then a towel massage while he dried off. We loved seeing this tiny innocent pupper being pampered the way that he deserves to be! Now all we can do is hope that he finds a happy and loving forever home.

Viral Thread: Heartwarming Rescue Of An Underweight Stray Cat

There are so many ways for an animal to come into your life. Sometimes, it's planned. You go into the shelter to pick a companion. Maybe it doesn't go exactly according to plan, and instead of adopting a kitten, you end up adopting a gorgeous senior cat. Other times, your cats are the ones who choose you. You see one on the street, helpless and alone, and you simply know that this one is meant to be a part of your life. 

The latter is the story of Church, the stray cat, who was rescued and adopted by FridgePants on imgur. The two of them saw each other, and that was it, fate has been decided. FridgePants did the most amazing, selfless thing in the world by saving this adorable cat and giving it the forever home that he deserved. We want to thank them and let them know that they have made not only this cat happier but they've also put smiles on our faces.

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.

What would you do if a hungry adorable doggo showed up on your doorstep one day? It isn't an easy decision, especially when you have other pets in the house. But this couple did the best they could do, slowly and gently getting closer to the dog, giving it treats and pets, taking it into their home, alongside their two dogs, and making sure that this pooch got the love that he deserved.

It took him a while to allow the humans to love him, but eventually, this cutie's tail started wagging, and he started playing with the two other dogs, and our hearts were filled with joy. Most importantly, this couple made sure to find the right forever home for this adorable doggo, and we're thankful for all their incredible work.

Tumblr Thread: Saving And Adopting A Helpless Stray Kitten

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?

tumblr thread about a stray kitten getting rescued thumbnail includes two pictures including of a stray scared kitten and another of the same kitten looking happy 'Skin - What a difference a day makes! Took this little guy to the vet, got the fleas and dirt washed off him, got some antibiotics for a slight cold, but he is otherwise fine. Kneading and purring up a storm, eating a lot and being heart-crushingly adorable.'

Imgur User Adopts Senior Blind Kitty, Shares Heartwarming Story

Well, according to Imgur user, daianaaaa, this beautiful senior kitty adopted her, not the other way around. And sometimes, it is the pets who decide who their human will be, and when you've been chosen, it's the best feeling in the world. To be chosen is an honor. 

Daianaaaa was chosen by Molly. A 20-year-old stray who also happens to be blind. Our hearts feel so warm knowing there are people out there who see older animals in need of some love and providing it for them. 

If you're considering getting a pet, please consider adopting instead of shopping. The animals know you've rescued them, they just do and you can feel their gratefulness for it. 

Thank you, daianaaaa, for giving Molly a loving forever home!

Twitter Users Share Funny Stories Of Finding Their Cats In Weird Places

Every cat has a story to tell. Some stories are more adventurous than others. And there's nothing that we would love more than being able to hear these stories. Alas, cats don't speak (unfortunately), so we can only settle on getting glimpses of their adventures. 

This week, a tweet had gone viral, describing a situation in a which a cat owner went to a neighbor's house and accidentally found her cat chilling there. Instantly, twitter users started chirping in, sharing their own stories about finding their cats in random, unexpected places. It's one of the risks of letting your cat hang outside, we suppose. And the stories... are just as unexpectedly hilarious. 


viral tweets of people sharing stories of finding their cats in random weird places thumbnail includes one tweet 'Text - Dr Kelly @KellyQuilt Took in a parcel for my neighbour across the road earlier. I just went to his house to tell him, he opened the door and there was one of my cats, sitting on his chair all comfy. 8:41 PM · Dec 4, 2020 · Twitter for iPhone 4.6K Retweets 1K Quote Tweets 150.5K Likes'

Cat Brings Home Adorable Stray Kitten

Klarieke, a cat owner from Greece, has three adult cats: Jack, Louis, and Stavros. She and her family adopted Stavros just one year ago, Klarieke tells Love Meow, "Stavros lived on the streets and was very ill. He was rescued by a Dutch girl who stays in Zakynthos every summer. She was looking for a home (for the cat) in Holland, so we decided to adopt him." 

"My husband and I said to each other, 'this is the last cat, three is enough," she added. 

That is until Stavros befriended a stray kitten and brought that kitten home.

Stray Dog Gets A Home, Job, And Badge From Hyundai Showroom In Brazil

What a good boy! 

We love it when we heart a story of a stray animal getting a furrever home -- and job

Meet Tuscan Prime, the new "pawfessional consultant" of a Hyundai showroom in Brazil! The staff noticed him earlier this year, a stray that would constantly hang around the showroom. The staff didn't ignore the stray, instead, they gave him love and attention. And after one particularly rainy night, the manager, Emerson Mariano, decided to adopt the dog and named him Tuscan Prime. 

After his adoption, Mariano took him to the vet for all the necessary vaccinations. 

Initially, the showroom took him in just to give him refuge, but it turns out that he's one heck of a salesman! With Tuscan's charm and interaction with the customers, the dealership saw no choice but to give credit where it was due. Thus, earning Tuscan Prime a promotion and his very own ID badge! Tuscan had officially become the showroom's mascot! 

In an interview with Top Motors Brazil, Mariano mentions that "that many customers returned to the store even after having purchased a car just to say hi to the dog and give him gifts."

And according to Mariano, Tuscan is even expected to star in a national advertisement campaign for Hyundai! 

Way to go, Tuscan! You can now follow Tuscan Prime on Instagram

How beautiful is that?! 

Meet kind-hearted Hades, the pitbull. Hades and his dad, Juan José P. Flores, live together in Mexico and one day, Flores heard knocking at the back door leading to Hades' doghouse. 

As it turns out, a pregnant stray has decided to move into Hades home to give birth, and Hades? Had absolutely no problems whatsoever letting this mama into his territory to give the gift of life.

Hades even brought her one of his blankets and stood as a guard by the door! But that's not all! Since Hades was so fond of the pregnant stray, Flores decided to adopt her and her two newborn kittens. 

We love a happy ending.
