Amazing Fat Cat survives 5 Story fall and Hawk attack

Amazing Cat Story: Eddie, the Super-Cat!

Eddie the fat cat

Eddie the fat cat

It was dawn on the upper West Side  when a young woman was awakened by a terrible loud screech, mixed with a terrified meowing of a cat.

Running out onto her fifth-floor balcony, (where minutes before her beloved cat Eddie had been sleeping on a bench) she was just in time to see him being lifted up into the air by a red tailed hawk.

All that was left behind of her beloved cat, was shreds of fur, broken nails, and feathers.

Heartbroken, and weeping the woman,  ran out into the street  looking everywhere, hoping at least to find his body to cry over even if he were already dead.  Whomever she turned to for help, told her it were a pointless waste of time, as he was surely dead.

Her beloved Eddie, her companion in her lonely Manhattan flat, suddenly gone forever!

“I walked for hours all over the neighborhood and up Riverside Drive, sobbing, looking for his body,” she said.

“I went to all the hawks’ nests. I put up signs with Eddie’s photo. I was heartbroken!”

Nothing seemed to help. No one had seen him. Not even his body was found. Eddie had vanished.

Or so it seemed, until a neighbor called her up to say he’d found her cat.

This is what happened:
When the hawk picked up Eddie, he didn’t realize what a heavy load he was taking up.
You see, Eddie is a 15 pound fat white cat, and that is a mighty weight for a 4 pound hawk.
He managed to carry him for about 50 feet, before dropping becoming too exhausted and dropping him.

Like a heavy rock Eddie headed towards the ground towards a sure death from the height of 5 stories.
However, by a Continue reading

Cat Rescue Story Smoky

Smoky is a brown tabby cat who nearly didn’t make it. We found him crawling along the pavement as a very young kitten. He was heading for a busy road and was suffering from terrible cat flu. His eyes were all glued up, so he couldn’t see a thing and his fur was dirty and matted. He really was in a bad way.

We think that he had come from a nearby graveyard where a group of feral cats had been living. By the state of him he had obviously been abandoned by his mother. We scooped him up and took him to the vets. It really didn’t look good for a long time. He stumbled around a lot as he couldn’t see and he found it difficult to eat.

We had to stay with him constantly for the next few days and spoon-fed him tiny amounts of warm milk. Luckily he did recover, although he has been cross-eyed ever since and we think that his vision has been affected, but generally he is a very lovely cat.

Funnily enough he has never wanted to go outside his whole life even though we have encouraged him. I think he just wants to feel safe and secure after his ordeal as a kitten. Smoky is now 13 years old and has given us many years of fun and companionship and is a very happy cat as you can see from his photo.

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 Continue reading
