‘Klepto Kitty’ Goes Viral For Stealing Neighbors’ Belongings

Standard

There is an adorable thief (I mean, look at that face!) roaming around in Portland, Oregon named Snorri. While he takes may types of “goods”, he does seem to have a bit of a shoe fetish!

The following is his story – written by Eliza Murphy for Good Morning America:

A life of crime has turned one cat burglar, now appropriately nicknamed the “klepto kitty,” into an overnight Internet sensation.

Snorri, an orange tabby cat from Portland, Oregon, has earned notoriety for being the neighborhood shoe-napper, snatching up innocent soles form their owners and bringing them home.

The cat’s stealing problem got so bad that his owner, Gabbie Hendel, decided to take action, installing a “cat collar camera” on the feisty feline to help determine where the random objects were coming from.

“The weirdest thing he has stolen was a baby costume,” Hendel wrote to ABC News. “I believe it is a monkey costume for baby.”

The camera was paid for by cat-lovers all over the country on a GoFundMe page and has successfully helped catch the cat’s sticky-pawed ways in action, allowing Hendel to more easily return the obscure belongings to their rightful owners.

Snorri isn’t snobby about what he chooses to cat-nap, either. He’ll take everything from shoes, to hats, stuffed animals and even gardening gloves. His personal favorite, however, is definitely flip-flops.

“I think he is such a funny guy, so much character,” Hendel wrote. “I’m glad that others get a kick out of it!”Sometimes though, her cat’s peculiar hobby can be a bit too much to handle.

“It’s a little time consuming, I am a medical student, so we will see how long I can keep it up,” she explained.

The videos of Snorri’s shenanigans are so compelling that Hendel has created a YouTube channel and Instagram account for his newfound followers to stay entertained (and locate their missing items).Despite the extra work, Hendel has cared about Snorri since the day she found him shivering in a stairwell.

“I thought that if he was still there in the evening I would take him in and try to find his owners,” she recalled. “He was there when I got home, in the same spot, so I brought him in and fed him. He scarfed down some food and fell asleep upside down. Looks like he steals hearts as well as shoes!”

Grieving Mama Cat Who Lost All Three Babies Matched With Three Abandoned Kittens

Standard

This story just hit my heart on so many levels and I had to share it. I hope you get feels from it as well. So special…

From the Huffington Post

written by

This is a true story of a very depressed and grieving mama cat, brought back to a happy maternal state thanks to some very loving people involved in the rescue and foster care of cats, complete with gorgeous photos of this miraculous match. (Here and at the end.)

2015-04-29-1430266090-6042028-MikeytheCat5.jpg

Mikey, an eight month old cat, was inconsolable. She had three kittens, born too early. They were weak and one by one, they died. Mikey’s owner Hillary tried everything she could think of to save the babies.

After the last of Mikey’s kitten’s passed away the cat was searching frantically for her offspring, acted very depressed, and her breasts were engorged with milk.

Watching her cat suffer, Hillary was desperate for help and called Dori’s Darlings, a cat rescue organization run by Dori Hillman in Houston.

This is where Amanda Lowe comes in. She is a foster mother to abandoned kittens, through Dori’s Darlings. Just days before Mikey lost her last kitten, Amanda received three baby kittens to foster that were just a few days old, that still had their umbilical cords attached.

Amanda and another foster, Kelli Nicole, provided around the clock care for the three kittens, who she named Teddy, Abby, and Lily for four days. That’s when Amanda received the call from Dori about Mikey losing her brood of kittens.

Reaching out to Hillary immediately, Amanda offered to bring the kittens to Mikey the cat that same evening. After a conversation, they decided Mikey could make it through the night and Amanda went to her first thing the next morning.

Before showing Mikey the kittens, Amanda, who says she talks to cats and animals all the time, told Mikey how sorry she was about her babies.

Speaking to her in a soothing voice, Amanda told Mikey the cat, “I have some babies for you so you can be a mommy again.”

Amanda said she could tell Mikey liked her and trusted her, and then she placed the kittens in front of the mama cat.

Immediately, Mikey started licking them, grabbing them, hugging them. Around 15 minutes later, the cat spread out and rolled over giving the three kittens a nursing invitation.

Lily was the first to latch on.

After two hours, Amanda knew that with Mikey cuddling her new kittens, bathing them, and falling asleep with them, that she was leaving a very happy mama cat and giving the abandoned kittens a new home. She said they even looked like they belonged to one another.

As Amanda explained, the kittens are more important for Mikey, as lots of kittens are raised by human foster moms. “This was just an awful thing she went through (losing all of her babies) and this will be healing for her,” Amanda explained.

Here are some beautiful photos of this heartwarming rescue operation, all taken by Kelli Nicole, who is a professional photographer.

Let’s Play Catch-Up!

Standard

Since the last time I blogged about myself, a lot of things have happened. I have been introduced to many new doctors and a few new tests. Thanks to Dr. Vera at NOVA, I am on some new medicines for ME and Fibromyalgia (which have practically gotten rid of my brain fog!) We are still experimenting with dosages to see if more improvement will be possible. (Fingers crossed!)

A dear friend who needs a place to stay will be moving in shortly. Lots of planning and packing going on between the two of us. Living in Florida will take some getting used to on her part. It took me two years to feel like I belonged here.

She will be arriving on Thanksgiving. The holidays will be particularly meaningful as we share the joy of being a family, as I consider her a sister. Very excited! (Also, can’t wait for her to see my jewelry studio!)

And speaking of jewelry…I have been keeping myself busy, designing and repairing pieces on commission. Here are pictures of some of my work…

New pair of earrings made to replace old earring with missing partner. Used Swarovski crystal, freshwater pearls and gold-filled chain.

20140717_232208_resized_2

Necklace made for opal and blue topaz pendant, supplied by client. My plan was to honor the pendant, not overwhelm it. Used agate, sterling silver beads, Japanese seed beads and Swarovski crystals. The client was trilled with the results and has ordered earrings to match.

 More pictures to come in the future.

As for my Kraftycat Creations Website, I am in the process of revamping – adding new, exciting products! This is a wonderful part of my life. I consider it therapy for a happier, healthier Fern. The “new and improved” Kraftycat Jewelry and Creations will be ready to view shortly.

Ben Torode took some amazing photos of his kitten Daisy that are out-of-this-world good! I love all animals, but after viewing Ben’s gallery, I have an urge to rescue a kitten from a shelter…right now!

I have never heard of, or seen for that matter, the beautiful flowers photographed by Snapshooter. Enjoy the wonderful photos.

Usually, around this time of year, there’s a bunch of photos of the hundreds of love in the mist that invade our yard. However, they were really short lived this season. So sad. Only got a few photos. Enjoy them! =)

After Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer, Bob began taking beautiful but totally ridiculous photographs of himself in a pink tutu. This Guy Traveled The Country In A Pink Tutu Just To Make His Wife Laugh During Chemo.

“When Linda would go in for treatment, she would take the images on her phone and the women would look at them and it would make them laugh and make the time pass,” Bob said.“When Linda would go in for treatment, she would take the images on her phone and the women would look at them and it would make them laugh and make the time pass,” Bob said.
