Man Stops Traffic to Save a Tiny Kitten in the Middle of Busy Road.. (with Updates)

A man stopped traffic to save a tiny kitten in the middle of a busy highway while others kept driving by.

On April 27, a tiny ginger kitten was spotted by Lion Rock Tunnel in Hong Kong. Due to rush hour, there was a lot of traffic on the road, and the kitten nearly got run over.

The kitten froze in fear in the middle of the road, and many drivers just drove around him until a kind-hearted man named Kevin (Kwok Kin Wai) sprang to help.

Kevin was driving a moped when he saw the kitten. He knew that if no one would stop to help, the kitten would not be able to survive much longer. As he saw cars rushing by the tiny defenseless feline, his heart dropped and he decided to do something right then.

He managed to pull his scooter over on the side of the busy road, and carefully signaled the incoming vehicles to slow down and stop as he approached the kitten.

He then gently picked up the tiny ginger furball and sprinted back to his bike.

The entire rescue was captured by a dashcam and the video was later shared on social media.

Meanwhile, Kevin had sent out a post on Facebook, hoping to find the kitten’s rightful owner.

No one came forward to claim the kitten, but Kevin was able to get in touch with a volunteer from a local rescue group to help foster the kitten and get the little fur buddy the medical attention he needed.

Kevin has never had a cat before but he believes that it is fate that brought them together.

“After discussing with the family, we would like to adopt the kitten and let our fate continue on,” Kevin said. “The kitten is named Lion because he was found by the tunnel at Lion Rock.”

Little Lion is currently in foster care while Kevin is getting his home renovated and kitty proofed. Once the renovation is complete, they will officially welcome their new addition to their family.

Kevin met with a volunteer from a local rescue group who found little Lion a foster home.

Little Lioin is doing well in his foster home, learning to groom and is cuter than ever!

Firefighter Does Sweetest Thing For Two Terrified Donkeys Fleeing Wildfires

Firefighter Chris Harvey and Sacramento Fire Chief Gary Loesch were driving down Honey Run Road in Paradise, California, on Saturday when they came across something entirely unexpected.

Just days before, the deadly Camp Fire had ripped through the Sierra Nevada foothill community of Paradise, leaving behind the charred remains of homes and husks of cars. The fast-moving blaze had claimed both human and animal lives, transforming a town of retirees and young families into something eerily deserted. Or so they thought.
While en route to investigate an accident caused by a falling tree, Harvey and Loesch spotted two weary animals emerging from the smoke.

The donkeys were slowly hobbling down the center of the road in the opposite direction, and it was clear to Harvey that they were very lost.

“We pulled over to let them pass, and saw that they looked very tired, worn out and thirsty,” Harvey told The Dodo. “I tried to give them some water in my hand from a water bottle, but it kept spilling out.”

Harvey knew that after what the donkeys had been through the animals needed more than a few sips of water, so he grabbed the apples out of his and Loesch’s sack lunches and fed them to the donkeys.

Immediately, Harvey could see the difference that his little act of kindness made to the survivors.

“They ate the apples quickly and seemed grateful for the snack,” Harvey said. “We called base camp and had them dispatch animal control officers to get the donkeys.”

Harvey and Loesch waited with the donkeys until they were safely in the care of animal control. Though it is unknown whether the donkeys will be able to reunite with their family, their rescue is a ray of hope when people need it most.

Josh Groban’s New Song is all about having to find the light during the darkest times of life

There will be times in life that you will feel alone regardless of the number of people around you. There will be times in which you would ask yourself, ‘what are you here for?’ And there will definitely be countless of times that problems would overwhelm you.

If you have already felt these ‘unwanted’ emotions, well I’ve got news for you! You are not alone! You are not the only one in this world who feels lonely for a reason you cannot simply put your fingers on.

Josh Groban, the 37-year-old multi-awarded music artist best known for his debut performance of The Prayer with Celine Dion, knows how it’s like to feel lost in life. Though the gifted music artist did not further elaborate on it, Josh Groban chose to illustrate his struggles in life through his newest song, “River.”

According to PEOPLE’s Brian Bowen Smith, Josh Groban’s inspiration for his newest single is all about having to find the light during the darkest times of life.

“River.” He wanted to discuss the hardships of life and reassure his fans that they are never alone!

“Whenever we have dark times in our lives, whether we suffer from depression, or addiction, or anxiety, or even just having a really bad day, the worst is that it feels like we are suffering alone… Far too many people feel this way…

I hope this song and video are a reminder that it’s the simple steps, the smallest gestures, that can pull us back to the light. It’s those things for me. Find your ‘river.’” The singer-songwriter shared with PEOPLE.

True to his words, it is very important to find your ‘river’ when you are feeling lost. There are times in which even the simplest act of getting up, taking a bath, and going to work seem like a herculean task.

And sometimes one may feel embarrassed of sharing their feelings of incapability of accomplishing these activities for fear of being misunderstood. Josh Groban hopes that the new song he had written would inspire people like this to find their light and motivation in life.5-5.png

Josh Groban’s newest song River proves that he is not the only one who felt this way. In fact, the ‘River’ is so relatable it touched hundred thousand hearts and brought people to tears.

“This song is so touching on so many levels… I could really feel that it resonates with what I’m currently passing through. Thank you so much, Josh! God bless your soul!” Lara Specter, a Youtube user, shared how she finds the song relatable through the comment sections.

“I literally bawled my eyes out every time I listen to this. Josh’s words always give me the comfort I need to keep going, and I’m forever grateful for that.” Xoxasha, another Youtube user expressed how Josh Groban’s newest song warmed her heart and made her cry.

“‘River’ is going to help so many people, bringing hope and light to the darkness. Thank you, Josh.” Another Youtube user, Pamela Mayfield said, expressing her gratitude to Josh Groban’s powerful song.

 

Watch the official video of River, Josh Groban’s newest song, that is touching the hearts of people across the globe and bringing everyone who listens to it to tears. We hope you are all able to find your river! Share your thoughts under the comment section, we would love to hear how his song resonated with your heart!

Many homeless people take better care of their pets than themselves; this clinic helps them | The Seattle Times

There aren’t accurate count of the number of people with pets and no homes, but advocates estimate 5 to 10% of homeless people have pets. More than 550,000 people were counted Nationwide – more 11,600 of them in King County – on one night in 2017. That’s a lot of homeless pets, and homeless people who keep animals are often met with criticism.

Mom’s Video of 2-Year-Old Boy With Autism ‘Falling in Love’ With Snow White at Disney Park 

 

Mom’s Video of 2-Year-Old Boy With Autism ‘Falling in Love’ With Snow White at Disney Park Goes Viral

A sweet video showing a 2-year-old boy with autism “falling in love” with Snow White at a Disney theme park has been viewed millions of times online after it was posted to Facebook by his mother recently.

The tender moment took place when he went to a Disney park with his family last November, according to Amanda Coley, who posted the video on April 28.

Coley wrote that her 2-year-old son “Jack Jack” has autism and is non-verbal. He is typically shy with people he doesn’t know, and was “having nothing to do” with any of the characters he interacted with on the family’s vacation.

But all that changed when he came face-to-face with Snow White.

“When your 2 year old falls in LOVE with Snow White,” Coley wrote directly under the 32-second video, adding, “I must have cried 1000 tears watching his interaction with her. He was in love.”

Coley ended up with many friend requests from the video that she decided to create a Facebook page dedicated to her family’s adventures. The page is called “Disney Adventures & Autism.”

Two of three sons have been diagnosed with autism, and Disney World is “100% their happy place,” she wrote.

Life or Lunch?

FINAL2orca_2D00_silence_2D00_friends1

Growing up, I was always taught in school not to discriminate against people based on their gender, ethnicity, class, or sexual orientation. We’re pretty much all raised with those values, right? Well, as I got older and entered adulthood, I started to realize that the same should apply to animals—who suffer greatly.

Today, countless animals face a fate similar to that of humans who were forced into slavery and subjected to other injustices: They’re tortured, abused, and neglected—just as humans once were, and, unfortunately, sometimes still are. Can you believe that over 63 billion animals in the U.S. are slaughtered every year for the food industry? They’re often confined to small stalls or cages and deprived of everything that’s natural and important to them until the day they’re sent to slaughter. How is this fair? In addition to being used for food, animals also suffer at the hands of humans for fashion, experimentation, and entertainment.

As Green Monsters, we mean making much deeper connections – connections between humans and our cultures, other animals, and the environment. Connections that can help us see the entire picture behind an individual issue and make us better equipped to act on a solution.

How will making connections solve our problems, you ask? Today, through the perspectives of some environmental, animal, and even human protection activists, the reputation of the human species has become very negative. Our species, especially in American culture, has been recognized for being gluttonous consumerists, violent abusers of our own and other species, and professional environmental…

The evil you do remains with you. The good you do, comes back to you!

A Small Act Of Kindness Can Bring Smile On Million Faces

A woman baked chapatti (roti) for members of her family and an extra one for a hungry passer-by. She kept the extra chapatti on the window sill, for whosoever would take it away. Every day, a hunchback came and took away the chapatti. Instead of expressing gratitude, he muttered the following words as he went his way: “The evil you do remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!” This went on, day after day. Every day, the hunchback came, picked up the chapatti and uttered the words:

“The evil you do, remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!” The woman felt irritated. “Not a word of gratitude,” she said to herself… “Everyday this hunchback utters this jingle! What does he mean?” One day, exasperated, she decided to do away with him. “I shall get rid of this hunchback,” she said. And what…
