Animal Rescue of a Cat
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.

Bin Men Saved the Day! (And the 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.”
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 the Rescued Snow 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
