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.

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.

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.

Meet the ever-handsome orange tabby named Thor! 

Thor was born feral, and is completely blind. According to TinyKittens HQ, it's a miracle he managed to live on his own, out in the streets, for the first year of his life. 

Thankfully, Thor is now in some loving hands, and as TinyKittens HQ writes in their description, "we promise he will know nothing but love, comfort and a full belly from now on."

Thor has already gained 6 pounds, in their care, and even has a playmate named Nyla! 

"His fear instinct is quite ingrained, so it might take some time for us to help him build enough confidence with humans that he doesn't try to run and hide.  Once we have him in our laps, he is just loving being hand fed and having his ears and chin rubbed.   

Nyla is keeping Thor company until she gets her spay and eye surgery tomorrow.  She has one purrfect eye, and is very fearful in captivity, so we are hoping she will be able to return to her friends and family in our Happy Forest managed feral colony once she's fully recovered.  As with all of our ferals, we will bring her back in if she needs further medical care or if she changes her mind about life with humans."

A huge shout out and thank you to TinyKittens HQ for all their incredible and loving work they provide!

Meet adventure cat, Nala, and her loving human, Dean! Deanfirst came across Nala on the side of the road while biking his way through Bosnia. Nala began to chase after Dean, and Dean obviously wasn't going to bring her along -- he was biking across the world, for goodness sake! But Nala wouldn't take no for an answer. She won't stop following Dean, and Dean decided he had to take her along on his journey.

So, Dean cleared up some space on his bike and made a little area for her to sit comfortably, as he pedaled. When they rode off, Nala decided she wanted to be closer to her chosen human and climbed onto his shoulders. Soon enough, they became inseparable travel buddies.

And now, Dean has a new bike set-up for his little furbaby -- a new and improved basket! 

"Got the basket on the bike, put Nala in and went out to test it out! so far so good, just need to see what its like in the rain!!"

Some people are seriously messed up! We'd like to feed that drunk man to a dog and see how he likes it! Thankfully, there is more good in this world than there is bad. 

When this hero saw a drunk person toss this defenseless kitten onto the street, trying to feed her to a stray dog, he immediately came to her rescue. You can tell from the video she was clearly traumatized from human interaction and was very scared. After some TLC, she decided that not all humans are bad. Meet Milky, the beautiful little rescue who is now very happy and loved. 

Thank you to her rescuer for saving and adopting her!

A beautiful message from Maui Boy & Maki Boy: The Puspin Cats Wanderers, "Please adopt strays whenever you can, you can never imagine how you can change their lives from worst to worthy."
