Cutest. Kitten. Ever. Rescued from Glue Trap.


When you see Elma's picture, you immediately fall in love.

She is lucky to be alive. The 4-week-old kitten was caught in a sticky glue trap meant for mice or rats. Her tail was glued to her leg. She could have slowly starved to death.

Caring individuals at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals-Angell Animal Medical Center (MSPCA-Angell) worked overnight to save her life.

The sweet kitten was named Elma after Elmer's Glue.

See photos and read more about Elma's amazing rescue here.

  2. Such a sweetie. You gotta love that one picture with them holding Elma under the water: "HELPPPP!!!!"

    We've never quite figured out the point of those glue traps. On top of everything else, they really aren't that effective.

  7. Thank God for cat people! I think they are the most adorable creatures! I picked up a new kittie on the side of my road right before Christmas. She had eye and nose infection and was tiny; her face looked awful. You should see her now; she looks great and is so lovable. veronica from n.c.

    Veronica, I agree-- thank God for cat people! How wonderful of you to rescue this sweet little darling. What a nice Christmas story! And now she has a loving family. She must feel so lucky.
