Meet Imichi, small adorable kitten that was rejected by her own mother in Japan. Luckily, the tiny found a new home. She was taken in by animal lover @Jessiepon and Ponzu, a golden retriever, late last year.

Ponzu and his ower took care of the baby cat, nursing her back to full health. Ichimi has got well along with her guardian Ponzu – the two play together all the time, and the retriever even cleans and sleeps together with kitten.

Judging by the pictures on Jessiepon’s regularly posts on his Instagram account, Ichimi is growing stronger day by day.

As Bore Panda writes, the kitten has provided Ponzu a much-needed respite from his heartbreak after Wasabi, a kitten that Ponzu and Jessiepon rescued from a crow attack, died in August. Now, Ponzu has a new kitten to take care of.

Not long time ago Internet users learned about another strange but adorable type of friendship. An 11-week-old ocelot kitten that was born at the Cincinnati Zoo has the best friend, Blakely, а dog at the institution’s nursery. The two like playing with each other all day long, exercising indoors during Ohio’s cold winter months.

The baby beast has sizes of an adult cat, but it’s expected to grow up quite big with weigh between 17 and 24 pounds. Santos has been living in the zoo’s nursery after he was born in the very beginning of November as his mother didn’t produce enough milk to feed the newborn.

The cat is the smallest and the newest member of the zoo’s Cat Ambassador Program, which was created to help leash-trained predatory cats educate visitors about animal conservation through up-close encounters.

One more hear-touching story was revealed a week ago. Stockings was born with a severe diseases, but luckily this little baby cat’s tale has a happy ending.

The orange adorable kitten was born with a severe birth defect that left him no ability even to stand. He was only a few weeks old when he was transferred to Chicago’s Tree House Humane Society.

“We were taken aback by what we saw,” the shelter posted on their website. “This little kitten was unable to stand or even extend his hind legs.”

“With his feet essentially “put on backwards” and his legs fully turned inward, fixed in a “W” position, the kitten got around by scooting on his hind hocks,” writes NBC Chicago.

Tree House Director of Veterinary Services, Dr. Lynda Ewald, called an orthopedic specialist to consult about the future plans and, after consideration, she decided to use a surgical procedure to cut the cat’ tendons.

The procedure, which Stockings underwent back in October, allowed the kitten’ legs to be extended, and his ankles were returned in their proper position, the shelter explained.

Fortunately, now the funny little baby is able to stand on his hind legs and pull himself onto the couch, the shelter said.

“He has no fear as he leaps toward a sparkle toy and tosses about tirelessly,” the shelter posted. “It is incredible to see him take a few, tentative steps as he learns to navigate on his new legs.”
