“Last weekend I found a young cat and her 4 kittens in the well of my basement window outside the house. I took them to the vet and everyone’s healthy and until the kittens are adoptable they’re all living in my spare room. Since I’m a shutterbug I can’t help but take this opportunity to take a billion pictures of them. :) So I just thought I’d share the Cute!” -Andrea K.
“My husband was driving to work one day in 2012 and saw a little orange kitten run across the road! He parked his car sideways to block traffic, grabbed a box out of his trunk, scooped the kitten up, and drove him straight to the vet. Kittenpants was so tired he fell asleep in the box on the way. He had fleas but was otherwise in good shape. He is now (bottom photo) a healthy, happy ginger named Mr. Link!” -Meredith and Duff.
Remember last month, we told you about artist Paulo Grangeon and his display of 1,600 papier-mâché pandas- one for each that lives in the wild today. The exhibit arrived in Hong Kong earlier in the week, so check it out if that happens to be your corner of the world!
[I’m gonna need some SERIOUS Snausage Action before I can consider such a thing. Even then it’s 50-50.]
“This is Tucker Bob. He is a rescue. Who would leave him behind? Thanks for considering him!” -Zoe B.
(Did we mention The Paws?)
[And what about THAT TUMMY? -Ed.]
“This is Tamago. My daughter rescued him off the street when he was 6 weeks old: he was scrawny and fleabitten and had bald patches from scratching. He weighed 500 grams. We’ve had him for 3 weeks, he’s doubled in weight and fluffed out. He likes sleeping with his tummy exposed.” -Gili H.
Tiny Bunz got displaced
And needed a place to stay
Lynne and her family took them in
And ended up saving the day!
“Our neighbor’s dogs dug up a cottontail’s nest in their backyard and the neighbors asked us to take them in since we have Buns of our own. So we have taken them in and are caring for them until they get big enough to let go. We thought you’d like to see a few pics of them as they are the cutest things in the universe.” – Lynne H., Colorado.
‘Cause these nice fellows helped it!
“My husband and his friend pulled over when they saw a faun on the opposite side of a busy road in Alberta, separated from its mother. Mom had just crossed and baby deer was just standing on the roadside, too frightened. The big softies save the day!” -Jennifer M.
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.”
