That’s what the folks below did. They took the time to make a cat’s life a little better. Because sometimes, just like us, cats wind up homeless. Sometimes, they wind up in situations that are beyond their control. That’s why it’s so heartwarming that these people stepped in to make a cat’s life a little easier. BuzzFeed took a little time to document their stories.

This kind woman who adopted three blind cats when no one else would

Big brother Blue and his sisters Meadow and Little Willow were found in an abandoned warehouse in Dubai. All of the kitties were blinded by an illness their former owner never treated. The cats were found just before Christmas 2014 and spent a little time in a foster home.

A former neighbor tried to adopt Blue but he was so upset without his sisters that he cried all night and kept searching for them. Fortunately, on one February evening in 2015, a kind lady named Catherine stepped in, adopting all of the kitties, Bored Panda reports.

Catherine was worried because she didn’t have a lot of experience with cats.

“I had zero experience having adopted by first-ever rescue kitten just a couple of months prior,” she said. “But their story touched my heart so much the thought of them put in a cage at vet facility indefinitely or even worse.”

Catherine was also worried about their special needs. But she soon understood she needn’t worry.

“The only adjustment early on was keeping everything where it was but they are remarkably adaptive.”

“Blind pets,” she added “see through their hearts.”

These Russian firefighters were so kind to this beautiful cat.

Cats are so loving and kind. We really can never love them too much. With so much stress and bad news in the world today, isn’t it nice to think about these good-hearted people and the kitties they helped? The world needs love and not hate. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if humans could purr?
