Kittens Found Covered In Ink Cared For by Rescuers

Kittens Found Covered In Ink Cared For by Rescuers

Two very young kittens were rescued in England recently after being found "colored in" with marker.  Rescuers believe that the pair were colored in to be used as "dog bait" in a fighting ring.

1

Police took the kittens to the Bradford Cat Watch Rescue (BCWR), where they were determined to be only around 4 or 5 weeks old.

"Here at BCWR KITTENS we often consider ourselves to be unshockable ... we have dealt with most situations but this is a first," Katie Jane, a rescuer with the group, wrote on Facebook.

Rescuers named the pair Shrek and Smurf, and have bathed the two several times already.  It's a bit of a tricky process, as veterinary staff want to be sure that the ink doesn't wash into the kittens' eyes or down their throats once it's liquefied in water.  BCWR is confident, however, that given enough careful bathings--and time for new fur to grow in--the marker will be gotten rid of once and for all.

Fortunately, the cats don't seem to mind all the water for now!

Tiny Cat Waits Patiently While Her Spot Gets Cleaned

Tiny Cat Waits Patiently While Her Spot Gets Cleaned

Patience is a virtue, and this kitty's got it in spades!  That she's standing on her hind legs like a meerkat while waiting for her human to finish cleaning only ups the cuteness quotient.  This is nine seconds of pure adorableness, so play it a few times--you deserve it!

Rescue Pit Bull Gets His Own Kitty, Loves Her Like A Daughter

Rescue Pit Bull Gets His Own Kitty, Loves Her Like A Daughter

Bubba, the 6-year-old rescue pit bull, has always been obsessed with cats. It started when his human mom Rebecca Pizzello got him from a shelter in Phoenix, Arizona when he was just 3 months old. Her roommate was caring for a litter of kittens and Bubba just clicked with them. Finally, after 6 years of waiting, Pizzello surprised her mellow pit with his very own kitten.

“I always knew he’d love having one of his own but I wanted to wait until we moved to NYC this year,” Pizzello says. She got the tiny ginger kitten from a shelter, too. “The fact that Bubba and Rue have identical coloring still blows my mind…I knew Bubba would be filled with joy the second we walked in the door and  boy was I right.”

After only a few hours at her new home, the kitten fell asleep on Bubba. “I think Rue thinks Bubba is her mom and Bubba loves it,” Pizzello added. “He bathes her like a baby and snuggles close to her to make her comfortable.  They will definitely be a fun duo to watch grow up together!”

This ‘Vampire’ Hedgehog Is Instagram’s Newest Star

This ‘Vampire’ Hedgehog Is Instagram’s Newest Star

Meet Huff, a 3-year-old rescue African Pygmy hedgehog from Utah whose adorable fangs have earned him a following of 12k people on Instagram. Otherwise known as Sir Hodge Huffington the Cricket Slayer, the cutie-pie was adopted by student Carolyn Parker after his previous owner treated him badly.

“A lot of people in Utah struggle with seasonal depression-including myself,” Parker says. “I started the account because I wanted to share something that made me happy with other people. Huff comes off as being grumpy and “huffy” but is really lovable and cuddly on the inside. I think that’s why there is such a large fan base for hedgehogs…because a lot of people can relate.”
