Kittens Saved Moments Before being Crushed to Death in a Garbage Truck

Bin Men Saved the Day! (And the Kitties)

This is 'Bin' one of the abandoned Kitties
This is 'Bin' one of the abandoned Kitties

Three little kittens can thank their lucky stars for being spotted and saved by vigilant bin men, seconds before being crushed to death in the back of a refuse (garbage) truck.

The eight-week old black and white kittens were found stuffed into a shoe box in a garbage bag, last Friday by refuse workers in Montague Road, West Hendon, while they were on their rounds collecting garbages.

They had been about to chuck the garbage bag along with other rubbish into the powerful crusher at the back of their truck when one of them suddenly caught sight of the kittens (or perhaps heard a little meow from inside one of the plastic bags).

Upon finding the kittens, they spoke to a local resident who agreed to rehome two of the cats and took the last of the trio to The Mayhew Animal Home in Kensal Rise, where staff have named him Bin because of his ordeal.

Mayhew CEO, Caroline Yates, said: “It is hard to comprehend that anyone would leave three vulnerable kittens trapped in a shoebox left for a fate of certain death.”

“There is no excuse for dumping any animals in such a cruel and heartless manner when there are many charities and organisations in London to approach for help.” A spokesman said.

“Luckily they were found in time and a compassionate member of the public brought one of them to The Mayhew to find a safe new home.”

My Comments:

What do you think about this? Would YOU do the same thing to your kittens if you couldn’t find a home for them and wanted to get rid of them? Could it be that the person who threw them out was somehow hoping that they would be found by someone kind and rescued? Or do you think that they were simply cold hearted and mean?

Thanks for reading and I hope none of you will do the same to your kitties!


Molly – Little Kitty Rescued from the Snow

Molly the Rescued Snow Kitty!

Molly the rescued Kitty!
Molly the Rescued Kitty!

A true Kitty Rescue Story told by one of our readers and fellow cat lovers, Dalilia from Toronto.

Read it here:

This Story happened in the year of 2007, December, when my uncle was driving to my 15 birthday party.

You see, I never had any pets and I never really hoped to get any because my father never wanted to have any pets because he fears them, but on that day, I somehow had a premonition that something extrodinary was going to happen; and it did!

We were sitting at home waiting for him to come when all of a sudden the doorbell rang and there he was!

Mom ran to open the door and all of a sudden, she gave out a little cry and rushed back in clutching her hands together and crying out almost hysterically: “He’s got a cat with him! A half frozen up little creature! Oh come quick! It’s almost dead!”

I rushed up to him and found in his arms a stiffly frozen, little white

Touching Pet Owners Story of Dead Cat

Read Peg’s Touching Story of her Dead Cat

I have found that many cat and dog owners have at least once in their lives suffered a loss of a wonderful friend (i.e. cat), a life long companion.
Such an occurrence is very sad. The sufferings and pain from a death of a cat or dog is sometimes a very difficult thing to cope with. Some people cry and grieve for years over a lost cat or dog, and some people forget sooner about their dead pet….

Here is a lovely little story about peg’s dead cat.

This is how it all began:

“Willy, my cat, came into my life at about 10 weeks old, following the death of my husband in 1997.

Willy was a special cat who knew all of my moods and was there for me every moment of every day.
He had always had what we thought to be a “hairball cough” that I treated with hairball remedy.

Last October the cough grew more persistent and I took him to my vet who thought he had feline asthma. He was treated with prednisone, but did not get better. In January the vet did a complete blood workup, which did not show any problems, so the prednisone was continued. Then on Feb. 17 I noticed he was having labored breathing so I watched him very closely for the next 2 days. On Feb. 19 (his 10th birthday), he wasn’t any better so I took him back to the vet. He did an x-ray and it showed a large mass taking up space in his lung. It was inoperable, and I had to make the decision to have him euthanized the next day.

I was there with him when the procedure was done and I kept my hand on his head until it was over. I have cried every day since then, and will continue to grieve for a time. I had him cremated and brought the ashes home this week. In the spring I will bury his ashes along with his favorite toy, which was a stuffed catnip mouse, in my flower garden. Since I’m a widow, I’ll probably be the only one there, unless my daughter and her family come out. I will put a pet grave marker on top of his grave.

He was my best friend, and he filled that hole in my heart with sunshine and joy every day of his life. He will never be forgotten. I have photos of him all over my house, because he went into every room in my house. He slept on the foot of my bed, and loved to snuggle in my lap.”

“I love you dear Willy and always will!”

Adventures Maine Coon Cat Gets Stuck in Fridge for 6 hours!

Frozen Chicken, Frozen Fish, … Frozen Kitty? What Next?

Kitty in Fridge
Kitty in Fridge

When I was a junior in college, I adopted a cat from the ASPCA, and named him Moe. Little did I know at the time, he was a Maine Coone, and would turn out to be a huge, furry, wild one at that. Moe loved to get himself into all kinds of trouble. One morning, my mother even awoke to Moe swinging by his front paws from the chandelier, and, to this day, I’ve yet to hear the end of it.

More than anything else, Moe wanted to hang out in the refrigerator—I imagine all that fur made him hot—and it was all I could do keep him out of it.
Every time I opened the door, he’d sprint from the other end of the room to get a peek and a paw inside. One night, just before bed, I opened the fridge to get a bottle of water, and, unbeknown to me, as I turned my back, Moe jumped in.

At some point each night, Moe would snuggle onto the foot of my bed and snooze the rest of the night away with me, but when I woke up and couldn’t find him, the search was on.

Finally, I thought to open the fridge, and there was Moe, perched comfortably on the bottom shelf—six hours later.
Funny enough, he barely nudged when I opened the door, but instead stepped out, stretched and went about his business. Either way, I was beside myself. I had locked my cat in the fridge—what else was there to say? All I could do was thank my lucky stars he survived.

Curiosity Almost Killed the Cat! Kitten Goes for Spin in Wash-machine

Kitten Goes for a Dangerous Spin!

Curiosity almost killed a four-month-old kitten when it went for an adventure in a washing machine and ended up in the spin cycle.

The fluffy, white, Persian kitten – aptly named Kimba after the cartoon white lion – climbed into the front loader while Lindsay Rogers was loading the machine at his home in Manly Vale, on Sydney’s north shore.

Not knowing Kimba was inside the machine exploring the dirty clothes, Mr Rogers innocently loaded it and turned the machine on.

“I put the clothes in, put the powder and the fabric softener in, put it on a cold wash – which was very lucky – and put it on for a 30-minute cycle,” Mr Rogers told the Manly Daily newspaper.

“When I opened the door, it just went ‘meow’ and stuck its head out. I couldn’t believe it – the spin cycle at the end goes really fast and I couldn’t believe it survived.”

While the bedraggled – and rather dizzy – Kimba was no doubt a lot cleaner after his adventure, the kitten was actually very ill, with very sore eyes from the washing detergent.

Mr Rogers rushed the kitten – who he described as “looking like a drowned rat” – to the local vet, who immediately put it on an intravenous drip.

The head nurse at the Allambie Veterinary clinic, Natalie Macdonald, said Kimba was “very flat and wet … and not very responsive” when she arrived.

“She was suffering from shock and hypothermia and they put her on a heat mat and dried her until her body temperature slowly returned to normal,” Ms Macdonald said.

Mr Rogers said Kimba returned to normal a couple of hours later.

“It is just amazing that she survived but we reckon she’s used all of her nine lives,” he said.

World’s FATTEST Cat Video!

The Fattest Cat in the World!

Man, this cat is FAT! Check it out for yourself on this video:

After posting this one, i just found an even FATTER kitty! Jickes, this one is REALLY fat!

What do you think about that? Isn’t that cat a poor little thing?
After all, even though some people say that they like “their cats nice and squishy and fat” there is also the animal to consider:
Fat is not very healthy and can cause all kinds of health problems such as diabetes, lung problems, heart failure, kidney issues, cancer and so much more.

How can that poor fat thing even MOVE up and down the stairs or run about after mice? I don’t suppose that it really can. Do you think that your cat would be happy so fat as this one?

Why do you think that his owners let him or make him so fat? For the fame?
If so, I’d rather have a healthy and happy cat then a fat cat!

What do you think? Is it good to have a fat cat or not?

3 Mean Vandal Woman Break into Cat Shelter and Destroy it!

A recent break-in at the Susanville animal shelter has caused a big outcry!

3 Vandals broke into a pet animal shelter early Wednesday morning, dirtying the walls with graffiti, damaging equipment and kidnapping six cats.

The Shelter workers have since been worried about the felines’ fate. “We can clean up the mess,” said Animal Cotnrol Supervisor Judge Walesch, “but we worry about the cats, if they are being cared for. I can’t imagine someone who vandalizes an animal shelter actually loving the cats or caring for them. I hope that they are alright and not being ill used.”

So far, one adult cat was recovered during the investigation and Thursday night the two young kittens were recovered at the home of one of the pre-teen girls arrrested in the case.

They are reportedly in good health and being bottle raised at a foster home. Their mother and two other adult cats are still missing.

Sadly, two cats were injured in the rampage. One suffered eye burns from something the vandals threw around the office. The other, an elderly cat, who had been the shelter’s mascot and internet ambassador was badly traumatized by the incident and had to be euthanized.

The damage down to the shelter is estimated to be many thousands of dollars.

The two pre-teen girls responsible for the damage are being held in juvenile hall on burglary and animal cruelty charges.

Along with the girls, a 35 year old woman has also been arrested as she helped them rob the place and destroy it.

————— My Comments:

How terrible that is!  The poor cats and dogs, the poor shelter!

How could ANYONE do such a MEAN thing to such poor little creatures! Destroying a shelter where poor beaten and starving cats and dogs find a refuge, kidnapping six cats and doing I don’t know what to them.

What is this world coming to?

That there can be such mean people on this planet is simply shocking! They are either demented or simply cold hearted and cruel!

Lost Cat United with Owner again after 8 Months!

Lost Cat United with his owner after 8 Months!!!

Charles the Lost Cat
Charles the Lost Cat

Charles, a cat from new Mexico ran away some eight months ago while in care of a babysitter.

His owner, Alex has been searching for him for MONTHS but without any result. Then one day, Charles somehow turned up 1,300 miles away in Chicago!

The cat had been  picked up as a stray by Windy City animal control workers.

Luckily, a tracking microchip had been emebedded in Charles’ shoulder blades which enabled workers to track his owner Alex down and prevent them from putting Charles to sleep.

They called Alex up and told him that they had found his cat.

However, Alex was at that time volunteering for the Habitat for Humanity in New Orleans and was terribly upset as there was nothing he could do about getting Charles.

Then the stunned cat lover enjoyed the further good fortune of having an Albuquerque resident – and fellow cat owner – volunteer to pick up Charles while in Chicago for a wedding.

Lucien Sims, who also owns a tabby, got an Albuquerque company to provide a cat carrier and American Airlines waived Charles’ travel fees.

“He needs a good brushing,” said Cherie Travis, executive director of Chicago Animal Care and Control.

“He’s got a little bit of a cold – a little bit of an upper respiratory infection – but otherwise he’s in great condition.”

3 hours later, both can and owner where united in a loving happy end hug!

Alex still cannot believe his good fortune at having his cat back and I am sure that Charles is ever so happy too to be back with his loving owner after all he has been through!

Let’s hope that he doesn’t run away too soon again and enjoyes a happy, long and healthy life!

What a lovely happy-end cat story! Don’t you think so?

Comment below and tell me what you think about it.

Thanks, and have a great day!


Mean Kitty Song Lyrics

Hey Little Sparta – The Mean Kitty Song

I got this little kitty about 2 months back,
He was the nicest little kitty now a pain in my crack.
This little kitty is ninja always stalking my feet.
This little kitty is a warrior you know what I mean.
He’s an evil little kitty, look what he did to my hand.
Tries to get in trouble in any way that he can.
I can give this cat a toy but he’d rather have the wrapper.
When I always give him water but he still drinks from the crapper.
You could lock him in the closet and he just won’t care.
Kitty chews on my shoes and he licks on my hair.
Always scratching on my favorite chair and jumping on the couch.
Playing in the windowsills and tearing through the house
He is so full of energy and easily amused.
Kitty will attack anything that moves,
Causing trouble, starting battles just so he can be a part of
He’s the meanest little kitty so we named him Sparta.

Hey little Sparta what is with all the fight,
Little bitty kitty want to bite, bite, bite.

Where’d you go? Are you stalking me?
Are you under the couch? Quite possibly.
Ears laid back so you don’t get caught.
Ready to pounce my leg with everything you got.
I know you’re probably watching me from across the room.
Concentrating, contemplating on attacking me soon.
You’re not invisible kitty, I’m going to find you first.
Come out, come out, before I make things worse.
I’ve seen where you hide and I know where you’ve been.
Hey kitty why don’t you give in.
Even if you try to sneak up on me I’m prepared.
‘Cause I got my safety gear on and I’m not scared.
I think I hear a little kitty under the bed.
I know you’re making noises just to mess with my head.
You can stalk me all you want, but I’m not your prey.
You always seem to find me first, but not today.

Hey little Sparta what is with all the fight?
Little bitty kitty want to bite, bite, bite.

Come on now, I’m going get you now.

I’ve got him cornered and now he’s mine.
He’s not going to get away this time.
I’ll snatch him up fast and before he can blink.
And then, awww man, he’s a sleep in the sink.
What is with this cat? I’m confused.
He’s got a bed but its never been used.
In every waking moment kitty is up for the fight.
Then next minute kitty’s out like a light.
How could I let this little creature inside of my home.
I got to keep an eye on him when I’m on the phone.
I’m a little afraid to leave this cat all alone.
This kitty may destroy everything that I own.
Look at him now, I kind of feel bad.
He’s the best little cat that I’ve had
And the one big thing I forgot to mention was that he wasn’t fighting.
He just wanted attention.

Hey little Sparta what is with all the fight?
Little bitty kitty want to bite, bite, bite.

Showing love, that’s all this kitty does.

Stray Momma Cat Fosters Abandoned Bob Cat Kittens

Momma Cat Saves Bob Cat Kittens!

Momma cat nurses bobcat kittens
Momma cat nurses bobcat kittens

A few weeks ago, a hunter found three small bobcat kittens alone in the woods of Alabama and took them to Big Cat Rescue.

Big Cat Rescue took the kitties in, but felt that they would and could not survive as they where too young and their eyes where still closed.

Luckily something special happened!

A stray cat in the Rescue Center who’s kittens had already started eating solid food found the kittens and adopted them imediately! She cuddled up to them and let them suckle on her nipples. Half an hour later, the kittens where already happily cuddled up with the momma cat aswell as with her own kittens!

They are now healthy, full and happy!

Big Cat Rescue plans to release the bobcats into the wild after 18 months, when they’ll be old enough to hunt and survive on their own.

What a lovely cat story!

Crazy woman pierces kittens to make them “Gothic kittens”

SCANDAL!!! Woman Pierces her Kittens

One of the pierced "Gothic Kittens"
One of the pierced "Gothic Kittens"

The Pierced “Gothic Kittens”

A 35 year old woman in Pennsylvania was just sentenced to house arrest for six months after having  pierced her three young kittens on their necks, ears and docking their tails. As well as tying a ring around one of the kitten’s tails used to prevent blood flow, causing the tail to fall off in time.

Strangely enough, even though Crawford (as is the woman’s name) pierced her kittens with fourteen gauge needles (the size normally used to inject cattle) she claims not to have wanted to hurt them but only to have tried to  “beautify” them.

She marketed them on the internet as “Gothic Kittens” and gained a lot of fame especially on her website were she put up pictures of the kittens and later used it to raise money to support her appeal in court.
Her defence lawyers argue that

Tips when burring your long loved pet

Tips to burring your dead pets (dogs, cats, mice and rats, and even birds!)

Find a spot that is closest to you, a place that you can visit often and pay your respects to your lost dead cat/dog/pet/mouse/bird or any other pet you have.

If you are religious, you might want to do a prayer, asking God to take good care of your pet, or just simply praying for it to be happy where ever it is… You can invent your own prayers, just voice your worries, your hopes, your fears and your sadness.

What I think is a good way to relieve yourself at least a bit of the guilt, sadness and misery, is to:

  • Write a letter to your dead cat or dog or pet.

Your letter can be anything you want it to be.
It can say that your sorry (if it was your fault).

  • Light a candle
  • Talk with friends about it
  • Chat online about your dead pet
  • Write it down in a diary or book
  • Do EFT – emotional freedom Technique that clears away any sadness, pain and emotional problems. It’s free.
  • Tell us about it and we’ll share your sorrows with you! Just write a comment below about what happened, how it happened and what you did about it. It always feels better to talk about things.

How to Respectfully Bury your Dead Pet – My Mouse Burial Story

How to Bury Your Dead Cat or Dog?

Have you just lost one of your dearest little furry friends? Did one of your beloved pets die?

Was it your life long beloved dog or cat?
Do you still remember him/her just like as if he/she were still there right besides you, rubbing against you, purring or barking?

Are you feeling alone, sad, misreable; as though there  is no one else out there who can understand you or comfort you?

But please don’t feel alone.

I understand your sadness, your devestation, your misery…. I too have had my share of loss.
When I was young, the only pets I had where two little mice in a cage by the window.

Mouse or not mouse, I still loved them dearly and used to play with them, pet them and watch them run around in their cage by the window.

They were not the plain sort of mice, but sandy colored dessert mice which where always active and friendly. These kind of mice, can loose their tails if they get scared, but this we had no idea about till one day mom tried to catch one of the sisters (now called Short tail) and grabbed her by the tail.

You can guess what happened: Mom was left shocked with a bloody stub of a tail.

A terrible incident to have happened.

Still, the mice lived on happily for a few more good years, but then some time after my 10 birthday, short tail got some brain infection and got very ill, she actually turned crazy.

Her ears started bleeding and white puss was coming out of them. She scratched at them and ran around in circles.

We had no idea what to do about her! So we just left her be. Hoping that she would recover somehow or another…. But she didn’t.

And then one day, she became murderous and killed her sister.  Just bit her neck out of the blue and killed her.

We came back and found
