He Was Stuck In A Pipe For Over A Day, But No One Would Give Up On This Kitten

When customers outside a retail store began to hear cries from a nearby storm drain, they raced over to see what was the matter. To their disbelief, they quickly learned that a small kitten was stuck deep below the surface in a PVC pipe no bigger than eight inches. They did everything they could to save him, but it just wasn’t enough — they simply didn’t have the right tools.

But that’s not where the story ended…

Though he was cold and wet after the rescue, little Piper sure is lucky to be alive. Thanks to a crew of dedicated animal lovers in California, he can finally rest safe and sound!

This Poor Cat…Only In Eastern Europe. This Is Definitely Animal Cruelty!

Not to stereotype, but let’s be honest, there are a lot of crazy videos that come out of Eastern Europe. Granted, I’m sure an equal number of crazy videos are created in America and Western Europe. However, they don’t often get as much media traction as the ones from Russia and other former Soviet countries. Which is why when I came across the video below of a guy smoking cigarettes with his cat, I was hardly surprised…

How does he even get the cat to sit still for this?!

This is definitely a horrible case of animal cruelty. Animals can get lung cancer, too. And it’s not just from actually smoking themselves.

In fact, according to a study, cats who live in homes where someone smokes a pack of cigarettes or more every day are three times more likely to get cancer than cats in nonsmoking homes. Don’t ever subject your pets to this kind of cruelty.

Man Launches Himself Into Traffic To Save Poor Kitten’s Life — What A Close Call!

Sometimes when animals are lost or scared, they don’t know what to do.

They might be frozen with fear, or they might run out into the middle of the road.

That’s just what happened to this tiny kitten in Russia. There’s no word on just how the kitten got there, but it wandered into a busy street with oncoming traffic and had an incredibly close call. One heroic man stopped his car and jumped out into the road to save the poor kitty — just in the nick of time.

What an amazing save! I’m sure that kitten is so grateful.

11 Life Hacks That Every Pet Owner Should Start Using ASAP

Owning a pet can be one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives. But for all the good they bring us, sometimes we wish things could be a little easier. If only there were shortcuts for dealing with some of the negatives (cough — cleanup — cough) that come with having our furry friends around…

Well there are! From making their bed smell just like you to disguising their litter box as furniture, each one of these is sure to be a hit in your house soon.

1. Create a kitty litter scoop with a simple milk jug.

The sifting holes are made with a hole punch!

2. You might want to eat these frozen dog treats, too!

Grab the recipe here.

3. Combine vinegar and baking soda to get rid of pet stains.

5. Use this lavender-infused concoction to naturally get rid of fleas.

6. Turn an old sweatshirt into a dog bed.

7. Use chalk or baby powder to keep ants out of pet food outside.

8. Build a dog crate that doubles as an end table!

9. Put a ball in your dog or cat’s food bowl to slow down a fast eater.

10. Put Vaseline on a dog’s cracked or dry paw pads. They won’t want to lick it off.

11. Run rubber gloves over couch cushions to get excess fur off.

When You See Just What Is Cuddling With This Cat, Your Heart Will Completely Melt

When Maggie Szpot and her family found a stray orange tabby kitten, they knew he had to become a member of the family. He was all alone in the world and without any friends, and it was their job to change that. They gave him a new name, Ranj, and began creating a loving environment for him to grow up in.

It wasn’t long though before Maggie wanted to rescue two other animals who needed a home. The pet rats, named Peanut and Mocha, had also won her heart. Though she questioned whether Ranj would behave or try to eat the little ladies, she was surprised by how the trio got along!

See for yourself and you’ll instantly understand.

Still not convinced? This should fix that…

Though Mocha never quite warmed up to Ranj, Peanut and the cat became adorably inseparable!

“If Ranj went to eat out of his food bowl, Peanut would come and eat with him,” Szpot told The Dodo. “I think those were the cutest moments, when Peanut was so determined to be with Ranj that she would overcome all kinds of obstacles to be with him.”

(via The Dodo)

Sadly, the friendship between these two couldn’t last forever. Pet rats have a very short lifespan at only two years, and in 2010 Peanut passed away. Though Ranj will never have a friend quite as special as Peanut, he can live with the knowledge that together the two had an incredible time. And that’s certainly enough for anyone.

If you’d like to follow along with Ranj’s story today, and even see what he’s up to with a new furry friend, be sure to check out his Facebook and YouTube pages!

Getting a new fur baby is a big responsibility. That’s why Elijah, the guy behind Just A Skinny Boy, told his girlfriend they should wait a bit.

This Kitten Looks Frightened ALL The Time (And He’s Precious)

It might look like this cat is totally petrified of life, but he’s not. That’s just his face.

He was born with absolutely huge eyes. His eyes are so big, in fact, that he can’t even close them when he sleeps. Most cats born with this condition have to undergo surgery, but so far, Herman is a healthy, loving kitty.

If nothing else, he’s a far cry from his kitten days, when the sickly little guy had to be hand fed to ensure his survival. The question on everyone’s minds, I’m sure, is this: How do you know he’s sleeping? Well, his mom says it’s easy to tell because he snores!

Meet Herman. Try not to die from the cuteness.

Need more Herman? I thought so.

I know what you’re all thinking because I’m thinking it, too. Where do I find one of these kitties for myself?

This Cat Really, Really Doesn’t Want His Owner To Work Anymore

I’ve probably spent the last 20 minutes or so procrastinating by browsing the internet, watching funny cat videos, and talking to my coworkers in the office chat.

If you have to work on a computer all day (and let’s be real, most of us do), you know how tempting it can be to lose yourself in the web’s many distractions. But some distractions are way cuter than Facebook and Twitter.

The struggle is so real if you work from home or your office allows pets, because fur babies love monopolizing our attention. Take this cat, for example. The impatient feline really isn’t pleased that Dad works all the time, so he goes to great lengths to distract him at every turn.

This employee clearly has to deal with some precious problems at work every day, but I don’t think he minds.

Cats And Dogs Can Be Best Friends…And Here’s The Adorable Proof

The tale is as old as time: dogs and cats just don’t get along. While that may be the “rule,” this adorable duo is definitely the exception to it.

When Cosmo, a golden retriever puppy, and his fluffy friend Afera, a Russian blue kitten, are anywhere near each other, they tumble, pounce, and just play around. Prepare yourself for adorable overload!

Turns out, they’re definitely not alone, either.

Some friends are more gentle…

Then there are the rowdier ones.

I have a dog, but I’m seriously considering getting a kitten after seeing these cute couples!

A Man Heard Crying Coming From A Trash Can. And I’m So Glad He Looked Inside!

Derek, a man from Brooklyn, was walking down the street one day when he heard meow-like cries for help coming from a nearby trash can. He went to explore it and what he found was that it was empty except for a small, knotted black trash bag. Derek reached in and tore the bag open. Lo and behold, there was a a kitten inside of it, barely alive.

The shelters and rescue centers were closed for the night so Derek nurtured the kitten, which he nicknamed Gina Fortunado, until the morning. The next day Gina was handed over to professionals who will raise her until she can be lovingly adopted…hopefully by Derek! How anyone could be so heartless to throw a kitten into a trash can I’ll never know, but luckily there are plenty of good people like Derek around to lend a hand to those in need, no matter how small the creature. Source: YouTube Share Derek’s and Gina Fortunado’s story with your friends below.
