Loving dog stops and waits for elderly owner

A security camera in a residential neighborhood captured on video an elderly man out for his daily walk.

The man walks very, very, very, very slowly with the help of a walker.

Watch how his faithful, patient dog would periodically stop and wait for the old man to catch up with her.

Homeless cat would only accept kibbles in a plastic bag

Every day, a kind woman in South Korea feeds street cats with kibble dry food.

She named one of the cats, a yellow female, Donzi.

Although Donzi clearly was starving, she refused to eat the kibbles that the woman offered her in a bowl. So the woman tried to entice Donzi with wet canned food.

Still Donzi refused to eat the food.

Finally, the woman put the kibbles in a plastic baggie. This time Donzi accepted the food. She took the baggie in her mouth, but would not eat the food inside.

Watch what happens next.

Get the tissue ready . . . .

Russian cat saves baby abandoned in box in freezing cold

Some animals are saints, i.e., holy.

This is a story about a holy street cat named Masha.

Masha found a 12-week-old baby boy abandoned in a cardboard box, with a few nappies and some baby food, on an icy street in Obninsk, Russia.

The city of Obninsk is 62 miles southwest of Moscow, where it is 1ºC temperature today, January 2.

So Masha got in the box, snuggled the baby and and kept him warm from the bitter cold.

Masha even tried to get on the ambulance that was taking the baby to a hospital, where he was declared fit and healthy.

According to the New York Post, Jan. 15, 2015, Masha is a “communal cat who is looked after by local residents,” which means she is homeless.

Obninsk city resident Irina Lavrova said Masha meowed to get the attention of a passerby:

“She [Masha] is very placid and friendly, so when I heard her meowing, I thought that perhaps she had injured herself. Normally she would have come and said hello to me. You can imagine my shock when I saw her lying in a box next to a baby. Clearly her mothering instincts had taken over and she wanted to protect the child. Everyone in the block is very proud of her. We have all spoiled her rotten by giving her her favorite food.”

A hospital spokesman told Central European News that “The baby had only been outside for a few hours and thanks to Masha … he was not damaged by the experience.” .

Good cat!

Mommy cat adopts abandoned puppies

Miss Kitty is a female cat in South Carolina who lost her litter of kittens.

Meanwhile, a neighbor’s dog gave birth to five puppies, but refused to care for them.

So Miss Kitty carried the puppies, one by one, to her hiding place underneath the house, and adopted them as her own.

Miss Kitty’s owners thought it better that she should care for kittens. So they put a call out for abandoned or stranded kittens, and found two, which they brought to Miss Kitty.

Miss Kitty immediately adopted the kittens, but instead of abandoning the puppies, simply added the kittens to her brood, whom she lovingly nursed and groomed.

Veterinarian Dr. Andrew Holland said that while cats have been known to adopt orphaned kittens, and dogs orphaned puppies, it’s unusual for a cat to adopt the babies of another species.

This cat puts human females to shame, who abort kill our babies, then have the gall to call it a Constitutional right.

Was this the terrible choice that Adam and Eve made in the First Garden? Despite being well provided for in the Garden, our first parents chose to disobey God’s explicit instruction not to eat from one particular tree, as well as ignore God’s explicit warnings of the consequences of disobedience. Wanting to be “like gods” who would determine for themselves what is right and wrong, Adam and Eve spurned the moral instincts God had already embedded in their hearts — instincts that Miss Kitty and other animals retain.

No wonder St. Bonaventure called them “creatures without sin”. Unlike we humans who are each born tinder for sin (fomes peccati), non-human creatures did not want to be “like gods” and are without Original Sin, having chosen to retain the light of God, which humans contemptuously call “animal instincts”.
