An orange cat showed up outside a family’s home and asked for help. His life was forever changed.


One Cat At a Time

Jaelle from Quebec, Canada was surprised to find a cat in her backyard, scratching at the door, begging to be let in. She had never seen the cat until that day (Valentine’s day) last year, in the midst of the bitter Canadian winter.

Jaelle, who volunteers for One Cat At a Time, a kitten rescue in Quebec, immediately opened the door for the sweet feline. The orange tabby looked rough around the edges. He was cold, hungry and sick. Jaelle reached out to Marie Simard, founder of One Cat At a Time, and asked for help.

“Our rescue specializes in orphan kittens, but he was asking to be saved at the door and we couldn’t leave him outside,” Marie told Love Meow. “We tried to find … Read the rest

A kitten with large eyes and a big voice is determined to thrive after she was found on top of a garden wall.


Wrenn Rescues

A tiny kitten’s loud cries saved her life when a Good Samaritan was alerted by her screams and found her on top of a garden wall. They reached out to Wrenn Rescues, a volunteer-run rescue group in Southern California, when the kitten’s mother never came back for her.

The kitten was very hungry, meowing at the top of her lungs for food. The tiny ball of fur showed incredible resolve and strength at just a few days old. She had a strong voice that kept her going.

Ashley Kelley, an experienced fosterer of Wrenn Rescue, didn’t hesitate to help. “She’d been screaming all night (before she was rescued). She was very hungry. I was happy to take her in,” Ashley shared.

Sarah Kelly

Sparkle Cat Rescue, an all-volunteer rescue in North Carolina, was contacted about a tiny kitten found on a resident’s property. The weather was too cold for the kitten to bear alone, so the finder reached out to the rescue for help.

“He was found by himself Monday evening (a week ago) and taken into the vet where they cared for him overnight,” the rescue shared with Love Meow.

While the resident continued to be on the lookout for other kittens, she heard little squeals coming from a shed the next day and discovered three other tabbies, litter mates to the first kitten. They were cold to the touch as their temperatures had dropped to a dangerous low.

A tiny kitten who was found alone in a bush, has blossomed into a beautiful young cat.

A kind lady from Canada heard a faint cry coming from outside late one night. Upon investigation, she discovered a newborn kitten in a bush, all alone. The Good Samaritan waited for the cat mom but she never came back.

A kind-hearted lady from the countryside of Indiana discovered a tiny surprise in her barn, one morning last month.

Tails from the Foster Kittens
