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."
