Meet Shakes — a teeny tiny kitten living in a shelter in Mumbai, India. She's a normal 8-week-old kitty: She loves to snuggle, play and squeeze into tiny spaces.
But she does it all while battling feline cerebellar hypoplasia, an incurable condition that causes her little body to shake uncontrollably.
Shakes is up for adoption at World For All, a rescue in Mumbai that helps find homes for stray animals.
This kitten needed a hero — and thankfully he found three of them in the nick of time.
Two garbagemen in Stockholm, Sweden, were getting ready to haul food waste to an incinerator when they heard the sound of a distressed cat emanating from their truck's holding compartment. Since the trash inside was piled up so high, they couldn't see where the animal was hiding — but they refused to ignore his cries for help.
The pair called their colleague, Bekir Mercil, who offered his assistance in delivering the kitty to safety. Considering what they'd have to sift through to find him, that was no small gesture.
It's unclear how the cat came to be trapped inside the truck, but Mercil told the TheLocal.se that one thing was certain — they weren't going to rest until he was rescued, no matter how unpleasant a task that would be. So Mercil met the two others at a dump where they carefully sifted through an estimated five tons of rotting food to find the cat.
Every now and then a family welcomes a new member, and the original family members have to prepare for that. This cat felt that he was TOTALLY prepared for a new family cat to join their loving bunch ... until it WASN'T a cat. It was a dog.
Cato the cat was sitting at the window, waiting for his dad to bring home his new feline sibling, when his worst fears were realized and that feline was actually a canine.
Needless to say, Cato was a little shocked.

In general, our pets sit and lie in weird positions all the time. It's kind of their thing. But one family realized its cat might out-weird them all, when they saw him sitting EXACTLY like a human.
That's right. Red, a cat from Ohio, sits down and stays seated exactly the way humans do. When his family noticed the adorable and strange way Red chose to sit, they knew they had to share it with the world.

Loki was rescued from Chittenden County Humane Society in Burlington, Vermont by Kaetlyn, a sheltter volunteer. However, she wasn't always so friendly. Kaetlyn told the Huffington Post that Loki was trusting of very few people and when she was adopted, she hid under the bed for months. However, a love connection was eventually made and Loki is now described as "the most affectionate cat Kaetlyn has ever had."
These little kitties prove that amazing things come in small packages. Elfie and Gimli are two siblings who were brought a shelter in British Columbia, Canada, with their mom when they were just kittens.
While their mom was a healthy, average-sized cat, shelter staff quickly realized that Elfie and Gimli had dwarfism.
"Luckily for Elfie and Gimli they ended up in a shelter where staff members were familiar with dwarfism in cats," their mom wrote on their Facebook page.
There's nothing worse than sitting down at your computer with a big pile of work and finding a cat sprawled across your keyboard. Or maybe there's nothing better?
Either way, sometimes you just need your cat to move. And this cat laptop might be the perfect way to do it.
The laptop, made by Suck UK — known for unusual cat toys like the cat war tankand the kitty Catillac — features a scratching-post keyboard and, of course, a fuzzy computer mouse. You can also customize it by sliding your own picture in as the desktop.
It's the perfect gift for the cat who has everything — or just wants everything of yours. And maybe you'll even get some work done.
Of course, without an included space heater, you still might find yourself pushing Fluffy off your desk from time to time. But worth a shot, right?
