Quadriplegic Cat Named Mascot of U.K. Train Station

Quadriplegic Cat Named Mascot of U.K. Train Station

Originally posted 06/12/2015 12:50PM

A quadriplegic cat from Lancaster, England, is bringing attention to pets with disabilities in a very unique way: through his love of trains.

Twice a week the cat – who has no feeling from the neck down – visits the Lancaster train station with his owner to watch the trains pass by. He's become so well known to staff there that they have named him the station's official mascot, according to the Lancaster Guardian, who first reported the story.

"When a train pulls into the station Toby's eye's light up and his ears prick up and he just focuses on the train," the cat's owner, Julie Wilding, tells PEOPLE in an email. "His eyes never leave it. He loves it when the doors open and all the people get off and waits for them to close again and also enjoys it if anyone comes over to say hello and give him a head tickle."

The cat never saw it coming.

An Amazon customer dressed her feline in a revealing crop top that her daughter purchased on the website to purr-ove a point – and the wacky post has gone viral.

"My 16 y.o. daughter bought this thing. It is ridiculously small and I probably couldn't legally post a picture of what it looks like if she attempts to wear it. But, so you can see ... here is a picture of our cat wearing it. To be fair, it does cover all of the cats nipples, however, she hates the weave. In summary, do not buy this, even for your cat," reads the message posted by sbo43 from Houston, Texas.

Stig may have cashed out all nine lives when he took a ride through an industrial shredder at a recycling plant.

Staff at the plant in Rainham, Essex, spotted the gray kitten traveling on the conveyor belt towards the machine, but they were too late to help, reports The Mirror.

Site supervisor Daniel Coker watched in horror as the kitten started meowing as it entered the machine used for sorting recyclables. Seconds later, the little cat emerged from the other end of the shredder – totally unharmed.

Cat Poop Parasite Linked to Schizophrenia in Humans

Felines, those sweet, furry bundles of cute, could be harboring something serious inside their systems.

Two new studies have linked Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) – also known as the "cat poop parasite" – to increased rates of mental illnesses including schizophrenia among cat owners, reports CBS News.

This poop parasite is found in kitties living in developed countries across the world and can infect any other warm-blooded species. Most humans who come in contact with the parasite don't develop symptoms, but once infected with T. gondii, flu-like symptoms, blindness and even death are possible.

Mr. Pickles couldn't explain his predicament himself, so a note did it for him.

"Please look after this cat. It is being mistreated," read the handwritten note, left when the cat was abandoned early Monday morning on the grounds of an animal rescue center in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The semi-long haired cutie, who was named Mr. Pickles by the shelter, is a bit bashful but showed no apparent signs of maltreatment, according to the Scottish SPCA's website.
