Kitty the Cat and Leila the Chihuahua: A Love Story! Video!

“An unlikely duo at MSPCA-Angell`s animal shelter in Boston is hoping to be adopted together after they were surrendered in the same crate.

A cat named Kitty and her Chihuahua best friend Leila were surrendered to the Jamaica Plain animal shelter on March 14 after their owners lost their home and could not find a new place to accommodate the pets.

The pet pair`s bond is so paws-itively unique and true, that the two were even surrendered to the shelter in the same pet carrier.”

A friendship rarely blossoms between a cat and a dog, the natural state of affairs is them being at each other`s throats.

If you put a cat and a dog in the same pet carrier mayhem and perhaps murder will soon ensue.

But a cat named Kitty and dog named Leila were surrendered to an animal shelter in the same crate. It turns out that these adorable creatures are best buddies, and the animal shelter is trying to find an owner that will adopt them as a pair.

The Palestinians and the Israelis may never live side by side in peace, and Trump supporters and Democrats may never hold hands and sing Kumbaya, but the friendship between Kitty and Leila gives me hope that humans can resolve some of their differences.

Adorable Kitten Stuck in Bag: Video

“An adorable kitten who became over-excited at his owner`s birthday party was caught on camera SWAN DIVING into a slim gift bag in a bid to retrieve a toy – only to become stuck.”

Daily Mail

Cats are cool characters, you could be suffering a massive heart attack, and they would barely glance in your direction, while they continue to groom themselves.

But even the coolest cat will go bonkers when he sees a bag or a box, and a bag doesn`t need to have a toy or a treat inside to entice a feline to dive into it.

This adorable kitten looks anything but cool stuck inside a gift bag, my cats have been in this predicament dozens of times. Be careful not to leave any plastic bags lying around, your fluffy friend can easily suffocate in a plastic bag.

There are many bag-loving kittens waiting for a forever home in your local animal shelter.

Why Your Cat Doesn’t Like to be Picked Up

 

I adore my cat Tico and I express my love by petting and kissing him, and lavishing him with treats and toys. One thing I never do is pick him up and cuddle him; I would strain my back if i picked up my 25-pound tubby. But there are other reasons why I never pick up my giant ball of fur.

Cats are predators and they tend to perch on top of the kitchen counter, refrigerator or a dresser so they can survey their territory. But a cat is a proud creature and he doesn`t feel like a regal lion when he attains a high vantage point because his clueless owner picks him up, restrains him and calls him a cute pussy.

Any feline worth his salt will squirm, scratch, and make noises that don`t resemble purring when his owner picks him up. Don`t disrespect your cat by carrying him, allow him to jump on your lap if he so desires.

A cat isn`t a stuffed animal, he`s a little person, and if you respect his independent spirit he will reward you with a lifetime of companionship and affection.

Notice the way cats interact with each other, they approach each other gingerly: Licking, rubbing and sniffing each other. I`m not suggesting that you lick, rub or sniff you kitty, I`m merely pointing out that being picked up is an affront to a feline`s tender sensibilities.

This essay is for persons who have recently adopted a cat, longtime cat owners know very well that their pets don`t like to be picked up.

Elephant Farts on Friend’s Face: Video

“An elephant at a sanctuary in Thailand took revenge on a pushy comrade by planting her rear-end in the other pachyderm`s face and letting loose a huge fart.

A video posted to YouTube by Elephant News shows Faa Mai, an elephant at the Elephant Nature Park sanctuary in Kuet Chang, climbing on a small hill that was previously claimed by a fellow elephant named Kabu.”
UPI

King of the Hill is a children`s game, the object of which is to stay on top of a large hill or pile (or any other designated area) as the `King of the Hill`. Other players attempt to knock the current King off the pile and take their place, thus becoming the new King of the Hill.

Wikipedia

“King of the Hill” was my favorite childhood game, I would spend my entire recess playing this game with my friends. I was a puny little kid and I rarely made it to the summit, but when I did my friends let me enjoy the view from the top for a few moments before unceremoniously knocking me down.

In the pachyderm world this innocent children`s game takes a sinister turn as demonstrated by Faa Mai the elephant. The flatulent elephant attempted to secure her perch on top of the hill by letting loose a tremendous fart on the face of a pushy comrade.

Faa Mai`s smelly tactic may have worked, but everybody knows elephants have long memories, and proving that revenge is a dish best served cold Faa Mai may one day discover elephant dung on her meal dish.
