    A stray dog adopted an orphan kitten after losing her litter of puppies. They were discovered in a roadside ditch on March 17. The dog couldnt let her baby out of her sight. The unlikely pair were rescued and taken to the Mercy Animal Clinic in Garland, Texas. The little baby kitten, less than 10 days old, has been nursing on the dog mama for milk. They named them Pittie and Kitty. [Scroll down for videos] Each morning and when I go in to get Kitty for a feeding she is usually snuggled with Pittie, said Dr. Rick Hamlin. Every...

  • 9 Things Cats Know but Won't Tell You

    Most dog owners come into the veterinary office with their canine companions devotedly following them. Tails wagging, the dogs look up at their people with adoring eyes. Most cat owners, on the other hand, wrestle a cardboard box into the exam room, reach in like a magician and pull out not a rabbit, but an angry feline. For their efforts they get covered with furry shrapnel and sometimes raked with claws until their face and arms look like so many tic-tac-toe games. (It doesn't have to be like that, by the way.) As a lifetime pet lover and practicing veterinarian...
  • Pair of kittens shut down subway service for nearly two hours

    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS ^ | August 29, 2013 | Edgar Sandoval AND Pete Donohue
    Two tiny kittens who narrowly survived an extended stint on the subway tracks had a big impact on Thursday's commute - shutting down subway service for more than two hours before two quick-footed cops finally scooped them up. Transit workers spotted the furry duo along an open-air stretch of the B and Q line near Church Avenue in Brooklyn at about 11 a.m., prompting officials to cut the power and suspend service for about two hours. A transit supervisor "tried to corral them" but was eluded, said a Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokeswoman. Sandra Polel, 52, was heading home when her...

    Everybody who has cats (or dogs) knows that they may have traits in common with other like animals, but each one has their own idiosyncrasies (idiosyncrazies, that is). My two and a half year old Birman male cat, Beaux, has this strange, but cute, almost OCD behavior that he does EVERY day, sometimes three or four times a day depending on how much time I happen to be home in a given day. If I have been gone most of the day, he will find the time to "fit in" his odd little habit at least once before bedtime. Here's...

    Missing hiker found with cat in New Mexico forest Published March 10, 2012 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. Snuggling in a blue sleeping bag, Margaret Page and her cat survived 3 1/2 weeks in a rugged New Mexico national forest, even though temperatures dropped below freezing nearly every night. Family members reported her missing Feb 14. But for various reasons, authorities didn't start searching for her until this week. The 41-year-old Page, who has a history of mental illness, was found Wednesday emaciated and malnourished but well-hydrated. Relying on a creek for drinking water, Page and her cat named Miya lived on...

    In Afghanistan, in the midst of war, many animals are lost and separated from their family. Many are found later by troops from the US, UK and Canada. Soldiers rescue these animals and get help from rescue groups that help them send these animals out of the country and to a forever loving home that they deserve.
  • Cat's Beating Death Triggers Protest (man killed cat after it scratched him)

    BOSTON -- The beating death of a cat in front of shocked children prompted protests Sunday in Worcester. A group of people gathered in front of the city police department, demanding police put Tom Foley behind bars. Foley admittedly beat a cat named Lily to death in front of several children on Friday. The owner, Lisa Tuttle, said her cat Lily had just given birth to a litter of kittens and may have been feeling territorial when she charged Foley's dog and scratched Foley several days earlier on Dupuis Avenue. "I just came out. I saw the cat in a...

    Swiping playfully at the camera, it's hard to imagine she could be a danger to anything - except, perhaps, her favourite toy mouse. But to postmen, Illy the kitten might as well be a snarling rottweiler. They say that the six-month-old moggie once jumped up at the letterbox and delivered a painful scratch to a postwoman's hand. So fearful are they of a repeat performance that they have sent a strongly worded letter to Illy's owners - warning them to discipline her or face a delivery ban.

    Don’t expect a Susan Boyle world tour anytime soon. Unless her beloved cat, Pebbles, is the opening act. According to the Daily Mirror, Susan Boyle did not appear in another "Britain’s Got Talent" concert last night after a hysterical screaming fit over her MIA kitty, Pebbles. Susan stood on the balcony of her eighth-floor hotel room overlooking the hotel atrium and repeatedly bawled: “Where’s my cat?” She was whisked out of the Liverpool hotel via a fire escape. It gets worse... One witness said: “She kept shouting, ‘I want my cat! I need my cat!’ I think people felt sorry...
