Ichimi the kitten was rejected by her own mother. Lost and alone, Ichimi had a slim chance of survival on her own. Luckily, the orphaned kitten was rescued into a loving family. Ichimi’s new family has fostered many homeless kittens, so Ichimi’s arrival at their home was accepted by all of the other pets in […]
Dogs are widely regarded as man’s best friend, although everyone has their own preference for pets. Coming in a variety of different breeds, sizes, shapes and personalities, no two dogs are alike.

His “wife” is injured and the condition is fatal. She was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road. He brought her food and attended to her with love and compassion. He brought her food again but was shocked to find her dead. He tried to move her … a rarely seen […]
The goldfish (Carassius auratus) was one of the earliest fish to be domesticated, and is still one of the most commonly kept aquarium fish. 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 […]

DAY 752 – My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from shredding the occasional piece of furniture. Tomorrow I […]
Law of Cat Inertia A cat at rest will tend to remain at rest unless acted upon by some outside force such as the opening of cat food, or a nearby scurrying mouse. Law of Cat Motion A cat will move in a straight line, unless there is a really good reason to change direction. […]
Here’s a poor snake that ate 4 golf balls and had to get surgery to remove them from his body. You can see that he’s not doing to well. The 4 bumps you see below are the golf balls he swallowed. And a few photos taken during surgery:
Dogs are smart enough to do what people do in their daily lives. They can take a bath, play on a computer, do some taxes, play chess and much more. The thing you didn’t know is that dogs wanted this to be a secret. Here are some photos ( taken with a hidden camera ) […]
If you don’t think the title is self explanatory check out the photos below And trust me. It really is impossible to keep a straight face in the presence of one or more kittens
The term big cat is used to distinguish the larger cat species from smaller ones. One definition of big cat includes the tiger, lion, leopard, and jaguar. Members of this genus are the only cats able to roar. A more expansive definition also includes the cheetah, snow leopard, and cougar. The roaring cats may also […]
Giant Leopard Moth The Giant Leopard Moth or Eyed Tiger Moth (Hypercompe scribonia) has a distinct pattern of black rings, reminiscent to those found in its namesake the leopard. The moth’s unmistakable colorings is aposematic, meaning that they are actually “advertising” the bug’s unpalatability to potential predators. Giant Camel Spider Perhaps we would never – […]
Cats and cars never mix, and poor Casper the cat has learned his lesson after getting his head wedged in a spare tire. The mischievous Siamese found himself in the tight spot and needed the help of a fire-crew after a passer-by found him in distress. The RSPCA were first on the scene and officers […]
