Who doesn’t need a live cam of rescue cats? I can’t think of a single person in this world, honestly.
Per Mother Nature Network, this kitten rescue cam aims to raise awareness about animals still making their way through the school of hard knocks. The kitten rescue cam is a joint effort between Explore.org, the Cat Bless You Community, and Kitten Rescue, a Los-Angeles-based rescue organization.
