    A teeny black kitten came to a veterinary clinic, in need of foster care. He was very wobbly and extremely tiny for his age. Danielle @fostercatsandkittensAbout a month ago, Gus the kitten was taken into The Poppy Foundation at Bonanza Cat Hospital in Las Vegas after he was found on the streets in the brutal summer temperatures. "It was thought that Gus had Cerebellar Hypoplasia because he was very unstable. He would fling his head around and showed all the signs of having this neurological disorder," Danielle, an avid foster based in Las Vegas, told Love Meow. "I have...

    Targalski was speaking with a journalist from the Dutch public television station Nieuwsuur to weigh in on ďthe controversial forced removal of Polish top judge Malgorzata GersdorfĒ by the countryís ruling conservative party, according to NTR reporter Rudy Bouma. Partway through the taping, his orange tabby began pawing and mewing at Targalskiís right side. The cat then scaled up the professorís arm like a personal Everest. ďEh ó we tolerate this?Ē Targalski asked. It was both a question and an apologetic statement, directed more to the camera crew and less to the cat, who by this point was already upon...

Jenny Ha, were driving home from church on the westbound 60 near the Grand Avenue exit on Sunday when they saw a woman sitting on a blanket in the emergency lane. The couple pulled over to help...

    This adorable cat was born with a flawless split of grey and black fur divided almost perfectly down the middle of her face. The rare markings on the British short hair, pictured at her home in France, are thought to be the result of two embryos fusing together. She has both light grey and black fur on her face, separated evenly in a remarkably straight line.

    This is the adorable moment a sneaky cat broke two misbehaving dogs out of a pet carrier their owner placed them in for acting up. In the clip Tuxedo the cat wrestles with the door, pulling it sideways to create a slight gap as the camera zooms in on his antics. The opening proves too small for the two pooches trapped inside, so the black and white cat pulls the entire door off, finally releasing the canine inmates.

    When your cat knocks your favorite coffee mug off the counter, does it use its left paw or its right?There's no need to sacrifice any drink-ware for the answer; your cat's gender should tell you enough. According to a small feline-behavior study published in the journal Animal Behaviour, female cats are significantly more likely to be right-paw-dominant, while male cats typically favor their left paws. And while this bit of purr-snickety trivia might seem insignificant, your cat's dominant paw may be an indicator of the animal's well-being, said study author Deborah Wells, a reader at Queen's University Belfast's School of...

He was 90 years old and had been in poor health for several years. The widely distributed photo of Praytor with the kitten would prove to be more that just an endearing moment of humanity captured in the midst of a brutal war, it would later save him from being court martialed.
