Search and ResQte

During the war in Afghanistan, three US marine soldiers took on a special mission: Rescue some of the war’s smallest and cutest victims. According to the blog Unique Scoop, two orphaned kittens have been shipped stateside to loving homes.

By the Way, You’re a Quart Low

While most pups respond to the words “car ride?” with unhinged glee, here’s one who may think twice: A cute black lab who took a 30-mile drive while trapped under the hood. Warning: You may wince a little, but the video has a happy ending (and bonus cute rescue-y guy; maybe not Jamin-level cute, but in the ballpark).

Next Week, on The Guiding Leash

Dr. Flangstone reveals to Jessica that her sex-change reversal surgery has left her legally genderless. Meanwhile, aspiring evil real estate tycoon Blake van Drake accidentally forecloses on a casino and turns it into a day-care center.

While across town, in the sanguine Boogerman household, young Timmy Boogerman begins to suspect that he may have been adopted…

OK, the real story, from the Daily Breeze: A dog rescue volunteer took home an added bonus with her chihuahua mom and pups — an orphan kitten who started to nurse right along with his new brothers and sisters.

Little Orphan Angelo

Born on a truck headed for a slaughterhouse, Angelo was on his way to lamb-chop Heaven when a sharp-eyed passerby begged the driver to set him free. Now in the care of Farm Sanctuary, he’s a sproinging, munching, pig-sniffing bundle of joy.

The Job Starts at Home

Sender-Inner Heather C. says:

I was standing in line at the local shelter waiting to get a volunteer application, some lady dropped [these kittens] off. She found them in an abandoned house and was surrendering them to the shelter.

She continues:

Upon learning that they would be euthanized that day (since they are too young for the shelter staff to take care of at 3 weeks) she turned around to me, a complete stranger, and begged me to take them. And of course, how could I say no?!

There are no Small Parts, Just Small Actors

Roger Hummingbird, You’re Clear for Take-Off

It seemed Roger flapped a little too hard recently and unfortunately ended up with a broken wing. But never fear – Roger is now clear to hover next to petunias once again, thanks to the professional care of our sender-inner, K-riz.

(And the constant stream of inspirational lyricist, Mr. Mister, didn’t hurt, either.)

Bye-bye, birdie, K-riz.

You’re Trembling Now, Aren’t You?

“Ooh, I’m scary!  Better not mess with me, because I’m baaaad! See how tall I am?  That’s not hair sticking up, that’s 100 percent pure pulverizing kitty muscle that you do not want to tangle with!  You’re scared now, aren’t you?  Right?  Aren’t you?”

Phyllis P. says: “I got Buckley from an in-home rescue service.  He was one of 15 kittens and their mother was run over by a car when they were all just babies.  They were all bottle fed.  I got him at 6 weeks old and he’s doing great.  He’s meeting his first non-family cat in this picture.”

I have a question for you

Do I make you proud?

Yes Jorden C., you do.

Is this the line for the milk dropper?!

HEY!

K-riz sends in pics AND rehabilitates them.
