PAWS UP! MEOW IN THE NAME OF LOVE! Man Saves Kitten From The Woods And Gives Him A Home / Lovemeow.Com

- 1687 days ago -
Hank was alone. I waited for some time to see if anyone else was around and scouted out a few spots where I knew a cat could find refuge but didn't see or hear anything. Hank had burns on his paw pads, was limping & covered in fleas. Now he's family!

This picture of Hank and his rescuer, the kitten not yet believing his good luck, is one of the most poignant and moving cat photos/videos I've seen. Two others are the Cat Loves Baby video and the shot of a tiny bedraggled kitten leaning on his rescuer's boot.
