Man in Australia, Sleeping on Balcony Awakes to Find Stray Cat Sleeping on His Stomach

On a nice lazy day, Ali Safe planned to go out of his house in Canberra, Australia to enjoy a little sunshine and take a nap. However, when he awoke, he was surprised when finding a stray kitten napping on his stomach. “I was taking a nap on the balcony of our house, and, like two hours later, I woke up and I found her just napping on my stomach,” Safa told The Dodo.

At first, Safa thought a rat was sleeping, but he checked again and realized that was a tiny white kitten. The kitten with hairless pink ears and dirty little paws was sprawled across his stomach. He looked down the stray kitten and her appearance stolen his heart.

Safa had seen many stray cats in his neighborhood, but this was different because he was chosen by a stray cat. He captured a quick photo with the cat and careful not to wake her. “I never really had a pet and I am a bit of a loner so I don’t have many friends, too,” Safa said. “While she was sleeping I kept hearing that ‘purr’ sound cats make and it was the cutest shit I have ever heard.”

When the cat woke up, the first thing she did was step down off the sofa, looked at Safa and started meowing nonstop. Safa thought that she was hungry, so he shared the chicken wings with her. After completing the meal, he took her inside for a bath to prepare for a trip to the vet clinic. Thankfully, the kitten was healthy and without a microchip.

Safe decided to adopt her and drove her to the local supermarket to buy cat food and a few toys. The stray cat has a loving home of her own with a perfect name Angel and Safa has a new friend who will always be at his side. “All I can say is that she is the most fun cat I have ever gotten to play with,” Safa said. “All she does is just roam around me all the day wanting pets or to play.”

Man Rescues the Pit Bull Left By Owners on the Sidewalk Next to Trash When They Moved Out

The heartbreaking photo of a lonely dog left on the sidewalk next to trash, reportedly left by his family, was taken by a Michigan neighbor who said they never returned for the pit bull named "Boo."

A neighbor told Mike Diesel, who eventually rescued the dog, that he witnessed the family move out and leave the dog.

“A neighbor that witnessed the family move out a while ago said they came back once for belongings and not Boo unfortunately,” Diesel, founder of the Detroit Youth and Dog Rescue, told

Diesel initially saw the sad photo on Facebook page for dogs, which garnerned more than 20k likes.

The neighbor reportedly said he’d been feeding Boo for a week and had contacted every dog rescue in the area, but no one would take the homeless dog.

That’s when Diesel decided to take action.

He drove to where the abandoned pup was and took time to get acquainted with him, not wanting to frighten Boo.

“As far as building up the trust that started Sunday the 16th at 2:30 p.m. when I arrived and I stayed that night until 1 a.m. talking and getting acquainted with Boo and feeding him different food items,” said Diesel.

The next day Diesel said he decided to show up with two sausage McMuffins and two hash browns to eat with Boo but ended up giving the dog both, he said.

“It took another 4-5 hours that day before I ended up getting a leash around his neck and then we just sat on the ground and talked for 45 minutes before I had enough trust for him to allow me to pick him up and we went directly to the vet,” said Diesel.

It turned up that Boo has heartworms and as of Saturday he is still at the Groesbeck Animal Hospital getting the help he needs.

"Boo has warmed up to me in an amazing way already and truly shows and proves the Love of the pit bull and Trust they have in humans,” said Diesel.

Heartbreaking Photo of a Stray Dog Hugging a Teddy Bear Has Gone Viral: Triggering a Bit of Controversy

Houston, Texas - This heartbreaking of a stray dog hugging a teddy bear on socialmedia -- and triggered a bit of controversy.

This is the picture. A sadder-than-sad stray dog who has found a tiny bit of snuggling up to a forsaken teddy bear.

The picture was taken by a Houston woman named Yvette Holzbach with the group 'Forgotten Dogs of The Fifth Ward'.

When she posted it on her Facebook page, there was criticism.
Why didn't you rescue the dog?"

This is her explanation: "We can feed up to 50 stray dogs [daily]. Of those 50 dogs we are lucky if we are able to save one because...there are not enough foster homes."

"[To] understand what we are faced with we welcome you to do a ride along with us. You will be astounded at how many homeless dogs there are."

That is as true in Southern California - as it is in Houston.

Houston, Texas - Homeless Man Can No Longer Care for Pup That Found Him - Do You Have Room in Your Home and in Your Heart for Butch?

A young dog in Houston, Texas, currently spends his days on the streets with a homeless man named "Joe." The one-and-a-half-year-old dog, named "Butch," suddenly appeared one day and Joe did his best to take care of the homeless pup that seemed to have no one else.

Unfortunately, Joe already had two dogs that he was caring for when Butch arrived, and one of his dogs does not get along with the newcomer. Though Joe loves Butch, he needs to find somewhere else for the dog to go.

The following information has been stated about Butch:

Butch is about 1- 1 1/2 years old. He had horrible mange and was very skinny when he first appeared. He is very people friendly and dog friendly but not with one of Joe's altered male dogs. He is fine with the other altered male dog.

Butch is not altered. I doubt he has been on heartworm preventative. A friend donated some flea preventative for all of them. But Butch definitely needs a bath!

A good Samaritan is working to help Joe find a home for Butch - the individual has obtained pledges which can be utilized for Butch's veterinary needs and she has offered to be the contact for potential rescue agencies or adopters. Anyone who has questions or who would like to help in some way can email:

Note: Prospective adopters will be screened for suitability by the individual who is taking emails about Butch.
