    Police in Ontario, California, said on Saturday they received information "regarding the abuse of a kitten by a young man," and had identified a 16-year-old suspect, but would not be disclosing his name, due to his age. The cat, which police described as a "small kitten" in a press release posted to Twitter, suffered a fractured leg. "The kitten and its owner have been located," police said. "The kitten survived the incident but did suffer an injured leg. The Inland Valley Humane Society is assisting with the investigating and care of the injured animal." In a statement Monday, the Ontario...

    Youtube Kitten Cuddle Room ^ | 7/1/17 | Me, Myself, & I
    Right now, 6 rescued kittens of all colors are frisking it up around the room their foster mom keeps them in, all live on camera. Can you spell A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E? I figured folks needed a break from Democrats, rats, and other schmutz. How about these lively little fluffy kittens running around, fueled by TNT and kibble? And, the foster mom is accepting applications for their adoption right now, as they just got spayed/neutered a couple days ago. Preference for people in L.A. area. Hurry up and get your cuteness quota, they are tearing up that room!

    Our sense of smell plays an important role in how we interpret the world around us. And for people who love cats, there are few scents as welcome as the smell of the soft fur on a kitten's head. That delectable scent is now available in a bottle. Perfume company Demeter Fragrance Library (DFL) recently announced the release of a new fragrance dubbed "Kitten Fur." The perfume captures "the olfactory essence of the warmth and comfort of that "purr"-fect spot, just behind a kitten's neck," according to a product description on the company's website. Kitten Fur joins a range of...

    It's hard to know whether this kitten was trying to escape from its confinement or looking to meet up with his canine friend, but they both ended up together anyway. The JoLinn Pet House, a pet store in Taipei, Taiwan, posted a video on its Facebook page of a kitten clambering its way up the glass in its pen to get to the gap at the top. After getting stuck there for a few seconds the kitten then has to quickly size up what to do next as the puppy in the pen next door suddenly realises he may have...

    NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A lifeless cat was pulled from a small kitchen fire in the Seventh Ward. He was quickly revived thanks to an oxygen mask specially designed for dogs and cats. “I guess he has eight more lives,” said Doug Cardinale with the New Orleans Fire Department. The fire broke out around noon Wednesday in the 1220 block of Columbus Street. The fire was small, according to the New Orleans Fire Department, but almost claimed the life of a house cat.

    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.

    NORTH RIDGEVILLE – Despite calls for the firing of Humane Officer Barry Accorti, who shot and killed five feral kittens in the backyard of a Vista Lake Way home Monday, the city’s police chief has decided his actions do not warrant discipline. In a written account of the incident signed by Police Chief Michael Freeman that was released to news media Tuesday afternoon, Freeman said “at no time does this agency condone or allow the indiscriminate killing of animals” while noting police believed the incident proposed the health and safety risks posed by the feral animals. After visiting the home,...

Six relatives and friends gathered at the tree with flowers and candles to make a makeshift memorial. The rope Rios-Aguilar...

    Hello all, I am hoping to hear from all the cat lovers here on Freep. I am the new owner of a kitten that has some deformities from birth.

She has her upper thigh (Femur?) and then the next bone(s) that would be the same as our Tibia and Fibia. And that is all. She is about 4 weeks old and was brought into the animal clinic my wife works...
