Mother Heard Strange Sounds On Baby Monitor. She Sprints Into Room and Sees Baby Is Not Alone!

Some people dream of being a mother their whole life.  Ever since Bernita Roger’s was a little girl she had looked forward to the day when she’d have children of her own to raise.  After marrying her high school sweetheart Roy, the two set out to become parents. However, the couple struggled and their dreams of starting a family were crushed after Bernita suffered a series of miscarriages.  

After all the heartbreak Bernita set aside her plans of being pregnant.  She decided that for the time being she would adopt, not a baby but instead a pet.  Feeling depressed, she just knew that having a furry animal companion was what she needed in her life and was set to go look a puppy at the local shelter.

Before she could even go to the animal rescue center fate stepped in.  Bernita was out in her garden one day when a black cat appeared and started to rub against her legs.  The friendly feline was a stray but not for long because she fell in love with the kitty and adopted him on the spot.  She brought the cat inside and ended up naming him Midnight after his shiny black coat.

Soon after Midnight had joined the Rodgers family Bernita and Roy learned that she was pregnant again.  The unplanned pregnancy was a blessing and nine months later a healthy baby girl named Stacey was born. When Midnight first met the new baby it was love at first sight and he was always close by.

The new parents were extremely protective of their little miracle baby and watched over her closely.  When Stacey was just 6 weeks old she suddenly became ill and after checking her out a pediatrician told Bernita it was just a common cold.  She took her baby home and had put her down for a nap when Midnight suddenly started acting very strange. He kept pawing at her legs and seemed to be trying in vain to get her attention, but she brushed him off thinking not much of it.  

Midnight ran away and moments later she heard him screeching and crying over the baby monitor.  His strange moans sounded terrible and scared Bernita who jumped up and quickly ran to the baby’s room.  When she got there, she found the cat near the crib and when she looked in to check on Stacey, she noticed something was terribly wrong.  The baby was struggling to breathe and starting to turn blue.

Bernita and Roy rushed baby Stacey to the hospital and because of their quick action doctors were able to save her after she went into full respiratory failure.  If not for Midnight’s insistent crying alerting them to the dire situation, she may not have been so lucky.

Midnight’s story was shared on YouTube and it brought a lot of media attention and interest.  Even Oprah Winfrey contacted the couple and they made an appearance on her show. As for Midnight, he and Stacey are inseparable, they’re each other’s best friend, and he’s always by her side.

An ‘Intruder’ Breaks Into This Tiny Kitten’s House. Now Watch Him Protect His Humans.

Cats are truly one of the most interesting animals on planet earth. From the mighty king of the jungle the lion, to the tabby cat at your grandma’s house, these animals give off a majestic vibe that almost no other animal on planet earth can match. People who have never had a kitty as a pet tend to believe these creatures are cold, weird, sneaky, sometimes scary and have no personality. Usually these people only ever had dogs or aren’t into pets at all.

However, anyone who has had the pleasure of sharing a living space with a majestic feline knows that these anti-cat stereotypes couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, you aren’t going to get the immediate unconditional love from a cat that a dog would give you after about two hours of hanging out. Cats will make you work a little harder for that unconditional love in return, but when they finally decide to let you into their inner circle, all that time it took to gain there trust is all worth it!

Many cats have a distinct and unique style or swagger in how they carry themselves or their special strut/style of walk. I had one cat who whenever he walked into a room he would lead with his back legs! He had quite the ‘cat walk’ and was bursting with immense personality.

This video has to be one of the best cat videos of all time. It features a tiny kitten, who realizes that a scary intruder has broken into her house and is sitting on the living room floor.  The kitten is quite territorial and will not allow an evil doer to take over his and his family’s property.

The kitten has the eye of the tiger and the heart of a lion as you will see when he comes face to face with the intruder. The only thing is, the intruder happens to be a small green ball, but the kitten is completely unaware of this.

The brave, but freaked out kitten swipes and pounces at the evil intruder, but every time the ball turns around, the kitten runs for the hills.  This has to be the most intense cat video I have ever seen.  The kitty is such a brave little soul, I for one would have no clue what to do if I was in her situation.

The video is set perfectly to some spine-chilling horror movie music.  So sit back relax, grab some popcorn and enjoy this epic and slightly scary kitty video! I may have nightmares for the next week.  Enjoy the video and be safe out there! Remember during this spooky Halloween season keeping an adorable kitty nearby at all times can keep you safe! 🙂

Daddy Tells His Pup He Just Got a New Pet From The Pet Store. He Then Decides To Throw a Hysterical Fit.

image via : facebook.com

When it comes to canines and felines, it seems like they either get along great or they can’t stand each other at all. You never know how they are really going to act until you socialize and introduce them to the other pets. When a pup and kitty initially meet the general belief is that the earlier in life they do that, the better they will get along with each other. Sometimes the initial meeting between the pets goes smooth as silk. Other times, the first meeting can go terribly wrong and keeping an eye on them and being prepared for lots of intervention is necessary before the two animals are comfortable enough to be alone together..

Every animal is different and just like their human counterparts, some of them are more solitary and like to be alone, while others prefer having company and are more social in nature. In general canines are more likely to be social just because from an evolutionary standpoint they are more of a pack animal. With cats you almost never know what you are going to get. They pretty much do whatever they want whenever they want!

The adorable black and white pup in this video falls under the more social category, he would absolutely love and adore to have a feline companion by his side. Well, at least that’s how his human imagines his dog’s thoughts and feelings to be! Although most likely these are this cute dogs precious wish to have a new best cat friend! He especially doesn’t want a snake, hamster, guinea pig, mouse, gerbil, newt or a parrot. This dog makes it very clear that all he wants is a new kitty cat!

He gave his dog a voice and dubbed it with perfection as the conversation between the two of them is executed flawlessly. He felt that his pup would be absolutely delighted and ecstatic at the mere thought of getting a brand new addition to his family and would welcome a little fuzzy kitty cat to call his little sister. An adorable tabby kitten would perhaps be the perfect addition to their lives, and so maybe it is time they get one!

The hysterical video of the energetic and happy looking black and white dog talking excitedly about finally getting a new kitty has already captured the hearts of well over 6 million people. It’s easy to see why, the clip is just hilarious and enjoyable to watch over and over again! Everything from the conversation to the dog’s actions, words, behavior and movements are high quality and totally spot on. If you have ever talked to your pet, or had pretend conversation in your head with them, then all of this may look, sound, and seem very familiar to you. No matter how many times I see this video, it never ever gets old!

Cats will make you work a little harder for that unconditional love in return, but when they finally decide to let you into their inner circle, all that time it took to gain there trust is all worth it!

In today’s featured story we will be covering a beautiful story about adopting homeless and abandoned kittens. The story begins with a man named Jared and his girlfriend Katt who decided that they were going to adopt a kitten from a shelter who was in desperate need of a loving furever home. That morning Jared got in his car followed the navigation and made his way to the local SPCA. He parked his car, he got out, entered the shelter and headed towards the cat adoption area.

He walked around trying to feel out which cat gave off the perfect energy to match their personalities. For anyone who has ever adopted an animal they know the part where you are at the shelter looking for “the one” can be very emotional. Not only are you about to add a new family member to your life that will be with you for  the next decade or two; but you also have to walk past the other animals that you are not adopting and this can be heart wrenching experience. With that being said Jared ended up making eye contact with a small grey kitten and in that exact moment Jared knew this little guy was “the one”!

He told the SPCA that he had to head to work but to hold this kitten and he and his girlfriend would be back later that day. He also explained to the people at SPCA that he wanted to make this kitten adoption “special”. What did he mean by special? Well no spoilers yet…

He came up with ingenious plan with the staff at the SPCA and told them that later that day he and his girlfriend would come get the kitten but they would be arriving separately… The plan was set, an adorable abandoned kitty was going to get a forever home and there would be one final touch to put the cherry on top of this wonderful day…..

Zookeeper Throws Soccer Ball At This Giant Bored Lion. He Proceeds To Show Everyone His Skills.

image via – facebook.com

Full grown adult male lions are formidable large and imposing cats with majestic manes and powerful body builds. Just being in their presence you can feel them commanding respect. They have a wild, noble air about them that has fascinated people for centuries. When you think of the large carnivores you often think of them prowling around, fighting for dominance, hunting, and of course sleeping away the hot days and relaxing with other lions in the pride!

One thing you don’t imagine is seeing one playing with a soccer ball. However, there is a beautiful adult male lion who loves nothing more than doing exactly that! Triton is an eleven year old white lion who comes to life when a soccer ball is thrown his way..

Whenever he sees his caretaker about to toss him the ball he immediately jumps up, lets out an excited roar, and runs over to inspect it and then lets his paws speak for themselves with his fancy footwork. That’s when the playtime fun begins. He likes to swipe the ball with his huge paws and pass it around to himself while chasing it around the enclosure.

He even follows after the soccer ball when it rolls into the water, not hesitating for a second to jump into the pond and get soaked. It seems that nothing can stop him or get in the way during his football practice. He won’t even pay attention to or play with the female lionesses when his soccer ball is around!

Triton’s caretakers are always giving him new balls because he wears them out so quickly with all the chewing and batting around. He lives at the Johannesburg Zoo in South Africa where caretaker Agnes Maluleke looks after him and all of the other large carnivores.

Out of the ten lions at the zoo in her care, she says that he is the only one who ever takes an interest in the ball. She also says Triton is the best soccer player and that the professionals could learn a thing or two from him.

After watching this lion’s skills in action, I have to agree with her. It seems that he is most likely the one and only soccer playing lion in the entire world and a clear natural at the most popular sport worldwide!

Does Your Cat Do The Head Bump All The Time? THIS Is The Strange and Surprising Reason Why.

image via – youtube.com

Cats have held important roles all throughout history and practically everyone knows how the ancient Egyptians worshiped them as sacred. Fewer people are aware of the fact that up until several hundred years ago there were no cats at all in North America.

It wasn’t until they were brought over from Europe to help manage with pest control that they were first introduced to this side of the Atlantic. In that short span of time felines have managed to win over our hearts and in the process, our homes.

Today they are the number one most popular pet animal with an estimated 88 million of them in the US alone. A 2014 Carroll University study found that 11.5% of people identify themselves as cat people yet 30.4% of US households own a cat.

The study found all sorts of interesting things about cat owners, they’re 11% more likely to be introverted and 17% more likely to have a graduate degree, but it failed to shed light on more pressing cat issues….like why they do the things they do!

If you’ve ever wondered why your cat does certain things, here are the top most common cat behaviors decoded and explained in human terminology. The accompanying video goes over them as well in greater detail, be sure to check it out so that when your cat displays them, you’ll know what kitty is saying or conveying:

Headbutting- Your cat is saying hello and likes you! When they bump their head against you it’s also called ‘bunting’ which is a friendly gesture and a common manner in which cats greet people. They do it when they feel safe and as a way to rub their scent glands on you, which is a compliment so be thankful.  Don’t get too excited though because they also love to do it to the couch! 🙂

Randomly sprinting to and fro- Your cat is trying to get in some exercise. Unlike dogs who get to go on long walks, domestic cats lack that luxury and basically have to walk themselves. They do that by bursting into a sudden ball of energy and running full speed across the house. Like most of the things cats do, they do it seemingly randomly whenever and wherever they want, but mostly when they’re feeling restless.

Spreading their legs- Your cat trusts you. An open legged position means that a cat is comfortable enough around you to fully submit and recognize that you’re in charge. Splaying their legs is a felines way of showing you vulnerability in the most vulnerable way they possibly can.

Sticking their behind in your face- Your cat wants to get to know you. When they back their rears up to your face it may seem offensive to you, butt it’s anything butt that! It’s actually kitty saying ‘hey what’s up’ to you because cats communicate mainly via scent and it turns out that butt sniffing is their main way of greeting one another.

Shake their booty before pouncing- Your cat is balancing itself. The booty quaking is adorable, funny, and a major part of why we love cats so much, but it’s actually part of a larger movement they’re doing to help balance themselves. To find equal footing a cat wiggles and part of that motion involves the entire leg and foot, which is what we end up seeing.

Kneading you like dough- Your cat is thinking back to their baby kitten days when they fed from their mother. This instinct is very strong in cats and while it’s original purpose, to get more milk from their mother’s breast, is no longer warranted, they do it anyways. Often it’s a sign of comfort and relaxation and

Laying on your stuff- Your cat wants attention. When you stare at your laptop all day long, your cat notices and when they want your attention they will sit right on it, front and center. Kitty’s don’t always need their human’s attention but when they feel the urge they always get what they want. It’s a simple as that.

Ignoring food in front of them, then eating random stuff- Your cat isn’t hungry or can’t see the food. Cats are grazers and will eat whenever they’re hungry. If you give them food at a time when they are not yet hungry, they won’t eat it. Also, they can’t see anything directly in front of their face because they’re near sighted. Anything within a foot is out of focus.

Burying their poops- Your cat is protecting itself. In an evolutionary, instinctual sense, a cat burying its number two is done to avoid other predators from getting a whiff of it and becoming alerted to their presence. In multi-cat households, they also cover it up to avoid offending other more dominant cats. However, when they fail to bury their doo-doo it can mean they’re possibly angry at you or offended by something you did.

Sleeping a lot- Your cat is normal. On average cats live 12-15 years and spend 70% of their lives asleep. Kittens need more sleep than adult cats because that’s how they get big and strong, when they’re asleep their bodies release growth hormones.
