A relatively small member of the carp family (which also includes the koi carp and the crucian carp), the goldfish is a domesticated version of a dark-gray/olive/brown carp native to east […]
A kitten has survived an unexpected ride from the Kapiti Coast to Plimmerton early this morning after stowing away in a car’s wheel arch. The car’s occupants, who were not cat owners, were surprised to hear meows as they drove south late last night, eventually stopping at the Plimmerton weigh station to investigate said Plimmerton […]
What do cats do when their owners are away? There was one way to find out – cat cams. Fifty house cats in the US were given collar cameras that took a photo every 15 minutes. The results put a digital dent in some human theories about catnapping. Based on the photos, about 22 percent […]
The mysterious mewing in Vickie Mendenhall’s home started about the time she bought a used couch for $27. After days of searching for the source of the noise, she found a very hungry calico cat living in her sofa. Her boyfriend, Chris Lund, was watching TV on Tuesday night and felt something move inside the […]

Here’s something nice to do when you’re on vacation.
If you think you’ve seen ugly things please reconsider. You haven’t seen anything uglier than these “things” seen under the microscope. I am really glad they’re tiny … I don’t even want to think what would happen if these were big as a human.
Are you hungry ? Maybe not but these birds are. Here are some birds getting some food in some very interesting ways
You’ve seen The Power of PhotoShop. Here are some great Photoshopped animals.
We all know cats hate water as much as rats hate cats. Here are some cats that enjoy water and are playing with it.

Sexual reproduction at scorpions is accomplished by the transfer of a spermatophore from the male to the female; scorpions possess a complex courtship and mating ritual to effect this transfer. Mating starts with the male and female locating and identifying each other using a mixture of pheromones and vibrational communication.. Once they have satisfied each […]
