Touching Moment Cat Holds Owners’ Hands On His Final Trip To The Vet

The internet is weeping after a Reddit user “abherna3” shared a touching photo of his cat Little Andrew on the way to the vet’s office for the last time. As you can see in the photo, the Russian blue cat is holding his owners’ hands, and this shows us how strong the bond between a pet and an owner can be.

The owner Bernhard posted the photo on Reddit and added a caption: “Little Andrew was my junior. He was 15 and a half and loved everyone, but just got old and sick over the last year. He purred everyday of his life and when he lost that, I knew it was time… He held our hands on his last trip to the vet. Little Andrew was much stronger than his mom and I.”

The cat had been by Bernhard’s side for fifteen and a half years, so we all can understand how sad he was when Andrew crossed the rainbow bridge. “He was a great guy. He was always happy to see everybody, always won fights with the dog and just wanted you around all the time. He just finally got too weak to keep up,” Bernhard said.

When Bernhard posted the photo to Reddit, he got a lot of love, condolences and support from other internet users about the loss of his pet.

Other people also shared their first and last photos with their beloved cats

My first picture with Mops and my last picture with Mops. Love you always, Mospy!

Despite Andrew’s passing, Bernhard is happy that the memory of Andrew will live on. “I’m just so happy his story has continued. He brought such happiness to me and I hope he continues to make others feel good about their own pets,” he stated.

We would like to give our deepest condolences to Bernhard. Rest in peace little Andrew!

Loyal Dog Stays In The Same Place, Longing For Owner And They Finally Reunite

Dogs are the most faithful creatures in the world. They consider their owners as their family and dedicate their whole life to them. Sometimes, the bond and love between dogs and owners is incredibly amazing. The dog in this story will make you shed tears at first, and feel heartwarming in the end.

Some locals saw an injured dog roaming around the street as if he was looking for something. His back leg was burnt and it looked like it hurt him so badly, however, he didn’t stop seeking. He looked at every person, every car that passed by him, trying to search for someone every day in the same places. Until they heard his barking, they found he was in a residential area where the house was destroyed by fire. Everything was just a ruin, and then people knew the story behind it. The dog and two of his owners (an old couple) used to live here, they were so happy with each other. Sadly, the grandma passed away recently. The grandpa had been suffering burns over his body and was in a hospital. The little dog was left here all alone.

He was such a precious dog that he kept protecting their old house even when it was ruined now. He searched for his owner day by day, but to no avail, the person was nowhere to be seen. All he could do was lonely sit by the remains of the house despite day or night, crying for help. He desperately wanted to meet his owner again.

Thankfully, some kind-hearted people knew his story and tried to help him. They came to the hospital where the dog’s owner was recovering from his injuries. They showed him images of his dog (known as Ddol) on the laptop, and it was heartbreaking that the owner could not control his tears when he saw the injured dog. He tried to comfort his poor dog by touching the screen, he missed Ddol so much and felt sorry for him. The loyal dog didn’t leave the bad condition place, hopelessly longing for his owner.

They decided to save the dog in a very smart way and finally could bring him to a hospital for medical treatment. Fortunately, his injuries were not so bad, but he felt out of place. He looked so sad and didn’t receive the food so the rescuers had to ask his owner for help. It was not easy, but it was like the miracle really happened as the dog began to eat after hearing his owner’s voice. His state gradually became better.

You can watch the video here:

After days of separation, Ddol and his owner overcame their hardships and could reunite. As they eventually saw each other, both of them cried in happiness. It had been a long time since they last met. They now could have a new house and live together happily forever.

Extremely Rare Black Leopard Spotted In Indian Wildlife Park

A highly elusive black leopard has been recently spotted in the Tadoba National Park in India. It was Anurag Gawande – a 24-year-old wildlife photographer who came upon the breathtaking sight. Anurag was on a safari earlier this year, when spotted the melanistic leopard crossing a road in its attempt to hunt a deer.

The lucky photographer was less than 30ft away when spotted the rare wild cat. Naturally, the 24-year-old couldn’t believe his eyes upon seeing such a wonderful creature. “It was surprising because we thought we will see a tiger but we saw black leopard strolling on the pathway,” he said.

However, Anurag told this is the second time in less than a year he spotted the rare animal. “This was my second time that I was watching it,” he said. “I felt the same thrill while watching it but this time I was aware of its moment. We kept our vehicle off and kept enough distance so that it will not move from the spot.”

Recalling the once-in-a-lifetime scene, Anurag explained: “We were tracking a tiger but on the way on Tadoba lake we heard a deer call and at the next moment we saw Black leopard. It was sitting on the pathway…then it spotted the deer and tried to hunt it, but failed.” Anurag also said “this is the only black leopard of Tadoba park.”

Watch the rare melanistic leopard here:

According to experts, around 11% of the leopards are born with unique pigmentation, making them an extremely rare sight. Melanism occurs not only at leopard, but also at other animals like tiger, or foxes, or even penguins. Unlikely the albinism, who’s a lack of skin pigmentation, the melanism occurs because of the skin’s black pigmentation!

Driver’s Dash Cam Captures The Moment A Lost Dog Is Rescued From Certain Peril

While driving to get his car checked over, user ‘Welshdrive’ came across a large dog in the middle of the road. It is not recommended to approach an unfamiliar dog, but the location and size of the dog meant it was only a matter of time before it got hit, possibly injuring people and killing the dog.

So, the kind man did the only thing he could do at this point – he stopped his car in the middle of the road to force traffic to slow down, while he took care of the dog that was obviously distressed.

“What are you doin’, doggy? What are you doin’?” the man can be heard saying on the dash cam footage. The dog sees the car stopping in the road and his demeanor changes, looking to his left and right for an opportunity to get away, should this human turn out to be hostile.

When the car door opens, the dog tries to run away, scared out of its mind, but sensing kindness in the man’s voice made him stop in its tracks. Instead of running away, the pup crawled towards the human with his tail wagging. It even threw itself on its back, asking for belly scratches!

Eventually it ran up to the owner’s home 800 yards away, and all’s well that ends well. Treat animals as you would treat humans, they have every right to live and be treated well. If you see a dog running loose on the road don’t ignore it, be the person who saves it!

Meet The Oldest Cat In The World Who Is 31 Years Old And Still Has Many Lives Left

This tabby kitty, who is a contender to be the world’s oldest cat, actually celebrated his 31st birthday (which is the equivalent of 141 in human years). His name is Nutmeg and one day, he chose his humans by showing up in their backyard some 26 years ago.

”He rules the house and he’s absolutely gorgeous,” Nutmeg’s humans explained to The Mirror.

Loving owners Liz and Ian Finlay lovingly took the cat in back in 1990 as a stray who befriended their own cat Spice. When they brought the kitty to their local Cats Protection to treat Nutmeg’s abscess on the neck, they stated to the owners that the cat was at least 5 years old.

This would rightfully make Nutmeg the oldest cat in the world, but to qualify for Guinness Records, the owners have to show the documents that prove his age – and that’s quite tricky, however, they are working on it.

Just last year Nutmeg suffered from a very serious stroke, however, now he is up and going stronger, making those around wonder how many lives this cat has.

“HE IS NOT OUR CAT, WE ARE HIS HUMANS AND HE NEVER LETS US FORGET THAT. MAYBE THAT IS THE SECRET TO HIS LONG AND HAPPY LIFE.”

Nutmeg, unofficially the world’s oldest cat, actually celebrated his 31st birthday (141 in human years)

“He rules the house and he’s absolutely gorgeous”

The Finlays took the cat in back in 1990 as a stray who befriended their own cat

The owners were told that he was already at least 5 years old when they took him in

However, to apply for the Guinness World Record, The Finlays need to show official documents

Nutmeg is a very senior cat indeed, however, to the Finlays he is simply the pet they adore

“He is spoilt rotten… He comes in every morning at five am and we get up and feed him”

… Making us wonder: how many lives does this cat have?

SHARE this adorble cat for your friends and family if you enjoyed it!!

People Wanted To Adopt Male Pit Bull, But He Refused To Leave His Lover

When Kathryn Birster’s dog of nine years passed away, she and her husband were absolutely devastated. The Birsters loved their dog more than anything, and they were crushed by his loss. Because of that, they had no plans to adopt another dog anytime soon. But fate had another plan for them.

One day, Kathryn Birster noticed a post on her Facebook timeline from Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia. In the post, ACCT Philly said they were trying to find a home for two bonded pit bulls.

While many people were interested in adopting the male pit bull, there wasn’t much interest in the female dog. As Birster read the comments on the Facebook post, she started getting more and more worried. It was clear that if something was not done soon, these two dogs would be separated. “I was watching all of this play out on Facebook and my heart was breaking all over again that these two who clearly needed to be together might be separated,” Kathryn told The Dodo. “I sent the photo to my husband, and we talked about it for a few days.”

After a lot of deliberation, the Birsters decided to go see the pit bulls. On March 14, 2014, they went over to ACCT Philly and met the two dogs for the first time.

The Birsters immediately connected with the dogs. “After spending some time with them, we knew we couldn’t leave them behind, and we (tearfully) completed the adoption process, bringing them home that night,” Kathryn said.

The Birsters named the dogs Gus and Nina, and the pit bulls quickly settled into their home. The pups were energetic and excited to be with the Birsters. They were also very grateful to have each other.“I know now that Gus would have been a complete wreck without Nina. She’s his comfort and his grounding,” Kathryn said. “If he’d been adopted or fostered without her, he would have always, always been searching for her. Nina’s a bit more independent, but she would have lost her play companion.”

Three years after adopting Nina and Gus, the Birsters can’t imagine life without them. Kathryn often shares photos of Gus and Nina’s adventures on their Instagram page. The dogs love running around and playing outside.

The Birsters and their dogs have a great life together, filled with fun adventures and lots of love. Kathryn and her husband have provided Gus and Nina with a wonderful forever home!
