Group Knits Little Homes for Rescued Animals and the Results Are Adorable

BY: TROY FRISBY

When you're sick, a cup of chicken noodle soup and a lazy day in front of the TV will probably leaving you feeling good as new.

Sadly, animals don't reap the same benefits of a 14-hour "Gossip Girl" binge-watch as humans do. But that's OK, because a non-profit group called Wildlife Rescue Nests has created a network of volunteers to knit nests for rescued animals, all for the sake of making them feel better.

Each of the tiny birds and mammals receiving new homes have "sustained injuries or lost their habitats in the wild."

The group's founder, Katie Deline-Ray, says the nests offer security and warmth, both of which are an important part of the healing process.

Inspired by Internet forums, Deline-Ray — who also goes by the "Crazy Nest Lady" — wanted to help wildlife rescues in Canada.

When she was unable to find an established group, she started one of her own.

Deline-Ray designed a simple nest pattern and created a Facebook page. Now the group provides mini-homes for more than 240 wildlife rescues.

And not just in Canada, either. The nests have also been provided to rescues in the U.S., the U.K. India, Africa and Australia, among other places.

Keeping wild animals stress-free while they're healing is a major challenge for rescuers.

The knit "caves" give the little guys comfort while their health is being restored, all while "increasing their chances of being released back into the wild."

Although now that you've seen how adorable these nests are, you'll understand why they may never want to leave!
