"Unadoptable" Stray Cat Rehabilitated by Rescuers Who Refused to Give Up February 21 2017, 0 Comments

In February 2016, Coconut was just another nameless, feral cat fighting for survival out on the cold, wintry streets of Boston.

feral cat colony tnr trap neuter release

Spotted by rescuers working for Boston’s Forgotten Felines (BFF), Coconut was captured on a TNR (Trap, Neuter, and Release) mission to a local feral cat colony. Joni Nelson, BFF’s founder and a seasoned cat rescuer for over 30 years, soon discovered that the all-white stray’s condition was worse than initially thought. It was clear he couldn’t simply be neutered and rereleased into his feral colony.

Coconut’s ears were torn and bloodied, his white coat matted and dirty, wary, blue eyes crusted and goopy. On top of that, he had a serious UTI, chronic diarrhea, a bad back leg and ear mites; Poor Coconut was a mess. But according to Joni Nelson, it wasn’t his appearance that made him “hard to like,” it was his nasty attitude.

At first, Coconut would hiss at anyone who came near him. Nelson struggled to give him medicine, clean his cage or even feed him; he would always lash out when she opened his cage.

Coconut wouldn’t lift his head all the way to look at anyone, and Nelson discovered Coconut was mostly blind and could likely only see shadows.

He was clearly a frightened cat who had never known love. Or, if he had known love, he'd been abandoned for so long (since the summer of 2015), that he had forgotten what love and affection truly was.

“Many people told me to put him to sleep, that he was unadoptable,” Nelson said. “I couldn't let him live his life in a cage, and I couldn't put him to sleep.”

It took months of dedication, care, and affection for Coconut to begin to finally feel safe. “It took a long time to get him to let me touch him. First just his head and only for a second or two.”

keep calm and love cat

Understanding Coconut’s hostility and fear dawned on Nelson when she discovered that he was deaf as well as mostly blind. “No wonder he was so nasty,” she said. “He was frightened and no one knows the torture he went through living on the streets for so long in that condition.”

Sherri Deluca was Coconut’s first foster mom. It wasn’t easy, but Deluca helped further rehabilitate Coconut and put him closer to his finding forever home. “She never gave up on him,” Nelson says of Deluca. She even has “battle scars to prove it.” Nevertheless, she persisted.

Soon, it was time for Coconut to spread his wings and learn of the rest of love and care that was out there awaiting him. He went to a new foster home, and after only one day of hiding under the bed, he seemed to relax. “He loves the attention,” says Nelson. 

rescue mom

Coconut has truly blossomed into a healthy, confident cat thanks to his rescue moms – and he’s quite the cuddly companion. “He purrs up a storm when being loved. He sleeps with [his foster mom] and cuddles.”

Coconut's transformation is truly incredible and shows just what love, safety, and attention can do for cats, like Coconut, who are desperately in need. 

turkish angora personality

The Humane Society of the United States estimates that almost 3 million cats and dogs are euthanized in shelters each year, approximately 2.4 million (80%) are healthy and treatable and could have been adopted into new homes.

With numbers this alarming and a case as challenging as Coconut's, it’s akin to a miracle that Coconut didn’t become just another statistic; Coconut's miracle came in the form of the rescuers who gave him a chance when no one else would. But Coconut still needs one more miracle: to find a loving family to call his own.

These bucolic buds show us that friends can come in all shapes and sizes.

  

Meet Morris the Horris, er, I mean, Morris the Horse-Riding Cat!

Champy (the horse) doesn’t seem to mind giving his much smaller, fluffier friend a ride, especially when Morris gets those paws a-kneadin' after a long trail ride.

The beginning of a beautiful friendship between Jasper the Cat and Orlando the Chicken started when Jasper's became distraught after his longtime chicken pal, Roxy, passed away. It wasn’t long before Orlando snuggled up next to Jasper and the two became fast friends, unlikely though it may seem.

The Lion and the Lamb: Born as the sickly runt in a set of triplets, Liab the lamb was not expected to survive. His owners brought him in the house to try and keep him warm, and Sox, their friendly, ginger tomcat, took to the lamb as his own and helped nurse him back to health.

Treat Yourself to These Photos of Hot Guys with Kittens February 10 2017, 2 Comments

Just a hunk, a hunk of purring love!
 
Do you like cats? How about hot guys? Well, friends, have an early Valentine’s Day treat, à la Meowingtons. Treat yourself to an eye candy buffet, chock-full of some aesthetically pleasing gentlemen holding even more adorable cats. It's time these crazy cat dudes get some appreciation. Move over, Magic Mike, and say hello to Magic Me-ow

These guys really know how to work a camera. They’ve got that “Blue Steel” look on lock. Remember to smize, boys!

Phantom of the Opurra, anyone? If these two mysteriously appeared out of the shadows to serenade me with the sweet, sweet music of the night, I’d let them at least finish the song. It’s rude to interrupt, right? Yeah. Right?

 
 
 
 
Is it getting hot in here, or is that just the global warming? Either way, call the fire department ‘cause this fireman and his fluffy firehouse cat has got me feeling' a li’l warm under the collar.

This kind, handsome boy is clearly wearing those killer shades to shield his eyes from the sheer brilliance radiating from his British Shorthair.

It isn't all just about looks, you gotta hit the books! Even these fuzzy bedfellows know reading is fundamental.

Catnaps are also fundamental, and these three can keep you warm with their lustrous fur. Watch out for tickly whiskers, though.

Okay, this just isn’t fair. This picture gave me a serious case of the “warm and fuzzies” and also melted all of the chocolate I already bought myself.

You know this is a healthy, strong boy. He can hold two cats at once. I’m sure I could hop in his arms and he’d carry all three of us off into the sunset without even breaking a sweat.

Why he scream? Hmm. I guess I'd probably scream too if I woke up staring into those beautiful eyes. But like a good scream, though, like "Hah! See, Mom! I told you I'd hook one someday!"

Play your cards right this Valentine's Day. 

Is there a better way to celebrate the people you love than by delighting them with a Valentine's Day card? I mean, sure, a diamond necklace is a pretty nice gift, if you're into that sort of thing. But these cards have cats on them, guys. And puns. That's a winning, one-two punchline that definitely says "I care about you, like, a lot." 

meowingtons valentines day 2017 valentines day puns

We tried to get Berlin's Take My Breath Away to play when you open this card, but who can afford the royalties? So maybe just hum the opening bars when they open the card, or try to work in a Top Gun pun when you write the message. Close enough?

valentines day memes valentines day puns valentines for him

Now that's really saying something. I mean, it says a lot of things on the front of the card. Just look at all those speech bubbles, wowza. But for someone to admit that they care about you almost as much they care about their cat? That's REALLY saying something.

singles awareness day singles appreciation day 2017 meowingtons cat valentine

Yeah! All right! Woo-hoo! Go Singles Awareness Day! Who cares if the abbreviation spells S.A.D.? You've still got your cat(s)! And also this card.

 Can cats even count, though? 

 

crazy cat lady gifts gifts for car lovers valentines day sale

If you can find someone who will share their food with you (and your cat), maybe you really are meant to be!

 
 

Whether it's for your coworkers, friends, family, significant others, or even for your cat that you taught to read: Let them know that you care about them this Valentine's Day! And while you're at it, take aim and shoot two hearts with just one of Cupid's arrows with our Valentine's Day Gift Pack, which includes our Valentine's Day cards as well as several gifts for friends, family, and even your cat!

Glamorous Feline Family Photos February 02 2017, 2 Comments

Too enamored with glamor shots? Not pawsible. 

There’s nothing quite so beautiful and heartwarming as family portraits, especially when they include pets. I can't think of a better way to capture the love and affection between cat and owner than a photo of the two of you floating together in a backdrop of space and time. Also your cat’s disembodied head is ghosted into the stars behind you, wide, vacuous eyes staring into the middle distance.

pet family portrait ideas glamor shots family portrait meme

To be fair, it could be said that the bond between a cat and its owner is one that burns with a white-hot intensity stronger than a thousand suns. These space scenes straight out of the 90s are close enough, I guess.

Getting a clowder of cats to sit still enough for a glamor shot is harder than, well, herding cats.

The only thing harder than trying to herd cats is trying to herd cats while simultaneously balancing a rabbit on your shoulder (and attempting to successfully pull off a mullet).
