Dijon the kitten with Foster DadLittle Wanderers NYC

A few weeks ago, Little Wanderers NYC was contacted about a tiny shelter kitten desperately needing help. She was six weeks old when she was brought into the city shelter with some injuries.

The kitten named Dijon was in rough shape and needed intensive care. “We were asked by many friends and hardworking Animal Care Centers volunteers to help baby Dijon. She was not eating on her own and was not walking properly. We knew we had to save her,” Little Wanderers NYC shared with Love Meow.

Tyrone and Megan, a couple who volunteer for the rescue, immediately stepped up to help. They picked up the kitten from the shelter in the nick of time, so she could start her … Read the rest

A shelter cat who wears a perfectly shaped heart on his back, is looking for a forever family to love.

Rutile the cat wears a perfect heart on his backLollypop Farm

Rutile, a 2-year-old ginger and white cat, was brought into Lollypop Farm (an animal rescue organization in Fairport, New York) early this year. He was one of 90+ cats rescued from a house fire in Perinton, New York.

“Rutile had a number of injuries related to the fire — when he arrived at Lollypop Farm, he was covered in soot, had singed whiskers and fur, an upper respiratory infection, and terrible burns on all four of his paws,” Lollypop Farm told Love Meow.

Despite it all, the sweet feline was in good spirits and grateful for the attention and help.

Bear the kittenJennifer @newkittensontheblock

Jennifer, a volunteer of IndyHumane (an animal rescue in Indianapolis, Indiana), took in a feline family that needed help. “I wasn’t planning to take on another set of fosters for a couple of weeks, but fate had other plans,” Jennifer shared with Love Meow.

The cat family went through some rough times battling ailments. Sadly, three of the kittens lost their fight. Through intensive care, Momma Honey and her remaining three kittens, Benny, Bea and Bear, pulled through and started to thrive.

“My heart healed as they healed, and they grew into strong, happy, and healthy kittens, and started developing their own unique personalities.”

Foster Baby Cats

In mid March, two bonded cats were brought to Foster Baby Cats, a kitten rescue in Columbus, Ohio, after they were rescued through a TNR (trap-neuter-return) project.

They were both pregnant and needed a safe place to have their kittens. “They are semi-feral so they aren’t that fond of humans, but they adore each other,” Jillian, founder of Foster Baby Cats, told Love Meow.

“The white calico will try to convince the black calico to nap or cuddle with her, and they are constantly grooming each other.”

Last month, a litter of 10-day-old kittens were found in poor conditions and brought to the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter in Texas. They were all drenched and so cold to the point that their temperatures didn’t register on the thermometer.

Shelter staff went right to work, warming up the kittens and trying to stabilize their temperatures. Megyn, a foster volunteer, was contacted and immediately stepped up to help.

“When I arrived, I started assessing their condition. All had wounds, one had rear paralysis, and another was having trouble breathing,” Megyn shared with Love Meow.

Stray Kitten Sneaks His Way into Officer's Heart and Claims His Spot as Her Shoulder Cat

A stray kitten snuck his way into a police officer’s heart and insisted on being her cutest shoulder cat.

Durham Police Department

Last Wednesday (March 24th), two police officers from the Durham Police Department in North Carolina were out on patrol just like any other day, but little did they know that a tiny stray kitten would soon change the course of one of their lives.

Officers J.N. Rowsey and E.L. Masnik were near Dawkins Street and Linwood Avenue when a tiny ball of fur caught their eyes. Upon closer inspection, they saw a scared little kitten all alone in the street, without a mother in sight.

Hoping to find the kitten’s family, the officers began to ask around the neighborhood while they searched for a mother cat and other kittens. After much effort, no one came forward to claim the tabby, and it became clear that the kitten was … Read the rest

Cat with Sweetest Face and Gentle Heart Determined to Live Full Life After Being Found Abandoned

A cat with the sweetest face is so happy to be on the mend after being found abandoned on the streets.

A kind couple from Northern California came across a cat that had been abandoned in a neighborhood. When they began to feed him, they noticed that his nose was starting to swell.

The cat’s condition quickly worsened. He lost his appetite and was in desperate need of medical attention. They rushed him to the vet and discovered that he had cryptococcus, a fungal infection caused by inhaling the fungus outdoors.

The couple knew that they could not provide the specialized care he needed, so they reached out to a rescue for help. Milo’s Sanctuary was then contacted, and sprang into action to bring the little guy (named Khy Shadowstryder) into their care in Los Angeles.

A cat who was misunderstood, found the family of her dreams and the perfect home she always wanted.

Francisca @bebbybeansprout

Francisca from Germany was looking to adopt a cat after she moved into her new home. A cat from her local shelter caught her eye. “She looked so special and cute, and I knew I had to meet her,” Francisca told Love Meow.

The cat named Bean was found wandering in an abandoned trailer park last year. She was covered in battle wounds and came with a host of health issues. The shelter saved her life and nursed her back to health.

No one came to claim her while she was at the “Lost and Found,” and she was then placed on the adoption floor. Every day, the sweet exotic mix waited patiently for someone to scoop her up and take her home.

Two kittens were found near a park and rescued just in time. They shared a very special bond from the start.

Chatons Orphelins Montréal

Two months ago, Isabelle from Montreal, Canada was taking a walk near a park when she saw two tiny balls of fur by the road. After taking a closer look, she realized that they were hungry little kittens covered in dirt, scrounging around for food.

The mother cat was nowhere to be found. Knowing that the weather was getting cold and that it would be tough for the kittens to survive the outdoors on their own, Isabelle decided to intervene. With the help of another Good Samaritan, they were able to get the kittens to safety.

The kittens were about 5-6 weeks old, very timid and just skin and bones. They were hankering for food as if they hadn’t eaten for some time. Volunteers went back … Read the rest

Grace Choi @kittyboyandfriends

Grace Choi, a board member of Boomers Buddies Rescue in Los Angeles, came across a video of a shelter cat with a congenital defect.

The cat named Joey was desperately trying to hide his face in the corner of the kennel, and so scared that he froze in fear. “We just knew we had to help him. The next day I went to the shelter to pick him up,” Grace shared with Love Meow.

She was informed that the cat was feral and that he would never be able to be an indoor cat. “When I brought him home, he showed no signs of aggression. He just seemed terrified.”

Grace could tell that behind those fearful eyes, there was a beautiful soul eager to be loved. … Read the rest
