Wow, this is a Super Resqte Story, People. Please welcome our Cuteporter today, Susan C.
“I’ve been a fan of the site for many years and have had many joyful moments of squeeing over the Cuteness. I have a submission and story to offer you.”
“On October 8, 2013, I was on my way to a meeting. I had taken a wrong turn and pulled over to try to sort out my location.”
“It was around 5:30pm so there was a good bit of traffic. Several yards away in the middle of the street I noticed some little critter and thought to myself ‘That chipmunk sure has a long tail.’”
“After a few seconds, I realized that it wasn’t a chipmunk but a very small kitten in the middle of the road. As I watched, two SUV’s barely missed flattening the poor baby.”
“I drove to the kitten as quickly as I could and when I got out of the car, the tiny gray and white kitten looked up at me and mewed.”
“I said, ‘Oh, come here, baby’ because I’m a crazy lady who talks to cats. He had a bloody little nose and his eyes were very runny.”
“I asked some people in the neighborhood if anyone knew of a cat with a litter….but no one knew of one.”
“Based on his rough appearance, I surmised that he was probably from a feral litter.”
“I took the little guy to our local emergency vet and they said the bloody nose was just a scrape and gave me some ointment for his eyes.”
“She estimated his age at four weeks. On the way there, I called my husband to tell him of my find and he said ‘I guess we have a new kitten.’”
“We did indeed have a new kitten. Oliver, named after another fortunate orphan, joined our cat household of Buddy and Missy and now he is a beloved member of the family.”

Folks, this is Boots. Boots had some tough times in her young life, losing her two rear paws in an unknown accident. Learn more (and donate) here!
She got those little blue booties when she was 6 months old.
The Denver Post says Boots “will undergo further surgery this summer to reshape the amputated areas of her legs, after which she will be refitted for new, more permanent prosthetics.”
Boot’s Hoomin Megan Brocato says, “She’s hoping for pink. After all, she is a lady.”

Ciao, Laura from Italy. What do you have for us today? She says in her email, “This is Peppo my 2 year old Jack Russell Terrier.”
“He loves to be Foster Dad for stray kittens waiting to be adopted.”

“…since they’re super cute!”
We’ve seen kittehs do lots of things, but rock climbing might just be the topper. This hoomin is Craig Armstrong, who adopted Millie from Friends Of Animals Utah in Park City. Now she accompanies him on all sorts of climbing adventures with her very own climbing gear.
Quoting BackCountry.com, Armstrong writes “We went into a tiny room to have a chat together away from all the other noisy campers. She climbed up my back and sat on my shoulders. It took about four seconds to realize we were now partners and would be going on many journeys together.”
“Our first climbing adventure together was in Joe’s Valley, bouldering. She was really tiny and had a tendency to jump on people and climb up to their shoulders. She did that to a few pretty girls, which showed me she loves me.”
“Since then, we’ve been to Moe’s Valley, Indian Creek, Ferguson Canyon, Eastern Reef in The Swell, Stansbury Island many times, to Moab towers, slot canyons, and other places I’m forgetting.”
“Millie has all the qualities a good climbing partner should have. She never complains, no matter how bad it gets. She always wants to go higher, and she pushes herself hard. But she also knows when to stop. When she’s done, she’s done. She’ll find a cave or climb a tree and won’t move until she’s rested.”
“She gets psyched when the bags come out on Thursday night and we get ready for the weekend.”
“She’s become more chill around camp and doesn’t wander off as much; she stays near and chases bees and lizards.”

As we said back on the 15th of this month:
HEAD TO BODY RATIO: If your head is exponentially larger than the rest of your entire body, that’s cute.
And so it shall be. This terrific photo of Pookie is care of Nathan W., who adds “She is a Rescue Kitteh from King County animal shelter. We are fostering them.”
