The little kitten didn't see it coming, and in a split second, her life changed forever!

  • Published: 10 January 2020
  • Some rescues require multiple trips, and here we got the baby on day one, and the mama on day two - so watch until the end :-)

    Rescues like this happen only thanks to your donations. I really hope you understand how even a $5 donation helps us because it adds up and enables us to rescue more and more animals. If you can, please join our team with a small donation here:

    Amazingly, the mom (Knee-Socks) was ADOPTED by our friends at L.A Animal Rescue ( ) and our friends from Room 8 Memorial Foundation are fostering the baby (Arabella). If you would like to adopt her, please contact them directly:

    Thank you so much for subscribing to our channel. Next week I will have an AMAZING dog rescue for you!!! In order to MAKE SURE you won't miss it, please download the Hope For Paws APP and turn on the notifications, and I'll text you to let you know that it's ready!

    Have a great day!

      S COOPER: HFP isn't a "service." They're all-volunteer and non-profit. They volunteer out of the goodness of their hearts, and their passion. I've seen a video where HFP did, indeed, travel to Florida to rescue a dog that was impossible for others to catch, but they're not a paid "service." You don't "hire" them. You live in a populous state where there are other available local rescue options, and I'm sure you also have city animal service departments. Trapping these two doesn't sound like a special difficult case.

      Here's a thought: it sounds like you're on good terms with these two kitties, so why don't you catch them yourself... AFTER you've made previous arrangements with a local group willing and able to accept them? And whoever you work with, don't forget to give them a decent donation!

      And cats don't generally "need" to be adopted together. they would do fine in different homes. It would be hard enough to find two separate homes for them, let alone one home willing to take them both. "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth," as they say. It sounds like you care about them, so do it yourself, or find a local resource or use the city animal service department you pay taxes for.

      And if they "live in" your apartment complex, how do you know someone irresponsible doesn't already own them? Someone's feeding them.

      ScottishAstronomer thanks, but I was just curious. I've already been doing the work for 35 years, and don't need it. And the original training wasn't online.

      Your approach to the kitty was wrong. Gain trust not fear.

                    We rescued a teeny, dying feral kitten stuck in a wall in an apartment complex. She is now cuddled next to me watching this video. I didn't save her, she saved me!

                          Hell hath no fury like a feral cat!! But, I’ve taken in 19 feral kitties these past six months, and turned them over to the no kill, Humane Society.

                                              You all do such wonderful work. I donated. the downfall of a feral kitty-cat is that they don't always learn to cover their poop after they use the litter box. Mom has to teach them that and if they don't learn it, they never will.

I won't mention their names here because I'm not sure if it's against the YouTube rules or unethical to do that while visiting HFP's video, but you can easily find them. One I've seen does wildlife, another takes in dogs among other animals.

                                                                              I’m about as masculine and bro-ish as you can get. I’m an ex-Army veteran, love football & baseball, ride motorcycles and eat nachos like a caveman. With cats I talk the little cat baby talk with felines. 😆

                                                                              I loved dogs my whole life and liked cats but it never crossed my mind to adopt one. My roommate had a cat and I fell in love and now I have 2! I cannot imagine life without them. They just bring joy into your life. They make you smile and laugh and can cheer you up on a crappy day. They bring so much to your life. They can bring meaning and purpose your life. So consider adopting and keep the commitment. They aren’t cell phones you can discard or trade in. One of the best things in this world is a warm fuzzy face and a wet nose nuzzling you. Help bring awareness to their plight and needs and support the wicked aholes who abuse and harm these amazing creatures.

                                                                              Thanks for all your work with these furry friends. If I could, I’d have 20 cats and 10 dogs and be that crazy animal freak but know that isn’t viable. If I hit the lotto though....maybe😉

Watch their other videos, and you'll see. They know what they're doing, and they network with world renowned cat rescue experts.

                                                                                          And your comment reveals that you're profoundly ignorant about cats and what they need as a species, and you know nothing about cat rescues.
