THIS JUST IN: Super Ultimate ResQte Of The Week Of All Time

***First of all, a note. This video is a bit scary at the beginning. Basically, a motorcylist comes to an Oklahoma stoplight (she has a cam on her helmet) and spots a kitteh IN THE INTERSECTION AND CARS ARE ZOOMING BY! And she swoops in to rescue him!

OK. There it is. Now……here’s the video.

The story gets better- here is the kitteh at home- now named “Skids,” for “Skidmark.”

Here are some additional deets, from the source video:

– Named him Skidmark.
– Keeping him for now.
– Have tried to contact person in red car, but she was unavailable. Either to find out if Skids is hers, or to make sure she knows strays are chilling in her undercarriage. She has my number, and a summary of the incident, have yet to hear from her.

(Story spotted on Mashable, Paul P. sent us the video link.)

ResQte Of The Week: Dateline, Singapore!

You will NOT believe this video. This little Bebeh Batski was lost and cried for help. Watch Mama swoop in to the rescue! Quoting the video, “The baby bat was found lost and stranded almost two hours prior to this reunion- it was amazing to see that the parent was around the area and was so quick to pick up on her baby’s calls for help and fly around us.”


(From Nothing To Do With Arbroath. BTW- the group who helped with the rescue is ACRES: Animal Concerns Research and Education Society, based in Singapore.)

ResQte II: Way To Go, Taronga Wildlife Hospital!

This female Brushtail Possum Joey was found orphaned and dehydrated in Sydney, Australia. 😦 Taronga Wildlife Hospital is working hard to get her healthy again! She will eventually be released back into the wild. Until that happens, this Roo Stuffy is a lot of fun, matey!

ResQte Of The Week: Waynesboro, VA.!

Waynesboro is our destination for this week’s Thursday edition of ResQte of the Week! “This is a video of a young Beaver nomming on a small branch,” says Mieke Z. “It was filmed by a great organization: the Wildlife Center of Virginia, where he – along with numerous other birds and beasts – is being rehabilitated. (Note: The center also offers classes for wildlife rehab-ber trainees!)”

ResQte 3: We KNEW Clark Was Really Superman Super Kitteh!

“I volunteer with TAAG (Transylvania Animal Alliance Group) and we have a very special kitten in our care that we think people would love to see. This is Clark, and he was found paralyzed at 4 weeks old. He was taken in and has quickly become our little mascot because he has the most playful, fun personality and he never lets his limitations get him down. Clark is in a handmade mobility cart made for him by his foster mom and he zooms all over playing like any other kitten. Clark has gotten over one million views this week on Imgur and wants to keep his mission of showing the world that disabled pets are just as fun as every other going!” -Laura K.

ResQte Of The Week: Dateline, Ft. Worth Texas!


Check this out. An 80 year old retiree by the name of Eugene Bostick has been taking in strays,along with his brother Corkey. The Bored Panda article says they “began adopting them and taking them for rides with his tractor. ‘We started feeding them, letting them in, taking them to the vet to get them spayed and neutered. We made a place for them to live.'”

THAT is good enough to be our ResQte Of The Week. But what puts this over the top? HE MADE A LOVE TRAIN FOR THEM TO RIDE AROUND IN.

ResQte Of The Week: Meet WHALE

“We who volunteer with Sante D’Or have had Cute Overload luck before, so when I saw this picture I thought ‘Brinke. Brinke must know.’ So bigger kitty Cobbler – an alum of Sante D’Or…was wary of foster baby Whale at first. She was curious but not exactly friendly. After a few days, Cobbler began to let Whale play with her tail, and even played a little with her, and then volunteer Megan found them napping together like this! These babies benefit from Race for the Rescues next month!” –Quinn C.

[*Note: WHALE? Best kitten name ever. -Ed.]
