A new home is found for a brave cat that was defending her baby kittens and lost an ear after that.

The new owner told the story of Jade, the one-eared tabby cat, on Reddit.

The whole story began when with Jade’s former human caretakers, who found her living under an abandoned car with her kittens.

“A nearby family was leaving her food,” the Redditor, who goes by the username happythoughts413, wrote. “They heard her crying one day and went out to find her bleeding.”

Unfortunately the family doesn’t know what exactly caused the injuries.  According to the Reddit user, they believe that some feral tomcats, a dog or a raccoon ataacked her kittens. Later the cat was transported to the veterinarian, where she received stitches and was put up for adoption.

Then one lucky Saturday, the Redditor went to Petsmart and stopped to look at the dogs that were up for adoption.

“None of the dogs really spoke to me, so I went to visit the kitties for fun,” the Redditor wrote.

“All of them were kittens except for one skinny ginger tabby with one ear that one of the volunteers was petting.”

But unexpectedly she laid eyes on the cat. From that moment the Redditor knew it would be hers. She adopted Jade that day and they are together since that very moment.

A few months later, the Redditor said she went back to Petsmart.

When one of the volunteers recognized her from before, he said: “Oh, you adopted Jade! We’ve actually got her kitten here today!”

Then the volunteer held up a small tabby cat, who was not as fluffy as her mother but just as playful.

“I’d assumed none of [the kittens] made it, so this news more or less made my month,” the Redditor wrote.

That night, she went home and congratulated Jade for being a great mother, reports the Huff Post.

Unfortunately no all animals are so lucky in their lifes.

There was a homeless cat, named Charlie, that couldn’t manage to find his loving and caring family. And simply because of his looks.

Poor cat he looked too much like Harry Potter’s evil archenemy Lord Voldemort.

Workers at the Blue Cross animal charity said that visitors had been scared off by the white cat’s resemblance to Ralph Fiennes’ character in the blockbuster movies.

The abandoned cat had to have its ears and nose removed after suffering from skin cancer.

Vets said Charlie’s pale skin left him at risk of developing the potentially fatal disease.

Animal welfare assistant Marie Loveridge said: “At first glance, people may be put off by Charlie because he does look like Voldemort, the baddie from the Harry Potter films.

“But although some people might think he’s a bit quirky-looking after having his ears and nose removed, he is a lovely, playful cat who adores attention.

“Charlie has had a tough life after suffering from skin cancer and it would be great if he could live the rest of his life in comfort.”
