    This kitten is evidently not a fan of strangers in the house, and she knows a few kung fu moves to put some fear into the... ceramic cat. Although it's unlikely the ceramic cat will fight back, it doesn't stop this brave kitten from putting on a fight.

    TEMPE, Ariz. - A kitten stuck in the ceiling of a recreation center weighed only one pound when she was rescued. Employees of Pyle Adult Recreation Center in Tempe heard her little mews for days, but they couldn't tell where it was coming from. They called the Arizona Humane Society. Arizona Humane Society Emergency Animal Medical Technician Andy Gallo came out to try and rescue the kitten. Gallo cut a hole in the ceiling, found her and pulled her out. She wasn't hurt, but was extremely hungry and thirsty and weighed just over 1 pound.

    When Anderson County Animal Control Officer Michelle Smith got a call in May about a whimpering dog, she expected to find a lost pet or injured stray. What she discovered at the bottom of the South Carolina ravine was a perfectly healthy Shih Tzu nursing a kitten. "I think it would have been okay for the dog to walk down the hill," she told Fox Carolina. "But it just didn't want to leave the kitten." Smith took the unlikely duo to local animal shelter Anderson County PAWS where the animals were placed in an enclosure together.

After a few days, I let the new cat out. The old cat hissed and growled and stared at the newcomer, which I expected, but no real wars. A few days later, when the new cat started...

    Teen Girls Accused Of Setting Kitten Ablaze. COTATI, Calif. -- A three-month-old kitten is fighting for his life after allegedly being set afire by two teenage girls last week. The male shorthaired kitten, named Adam, received second- and third-degree burns over 75 percent of its body and was being treated at an animal hospital in Cotati, in Northern California's Sonoma County, officials said. The kitten has undergone two surgeries and had its tail and the tips of its ears amputated. Two girls have been charged with cruelty to animals in connection with the case.
