A blog on why we love animals so much
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 […]

If there is one thing a cat loves, its a nice cool sink to relax in!
It’s not a negative. It’s not frozen. This rat’s skin is blue and its color may be the secret to avoid spinal cord injuries and paralysis, according to a new study by neurologists at the University of Rochester Medical Center. That secret is Brilliant Blue G dye, a variant of Blue Number One, which is […]
Is your dog itching, scratching and stinking beyond belief ? And I bet you know that dogs usually stink if not washed at least once a week. I know mine does and trust me that I tried all kinds of shampoos and even gave my dog a bath every 2 days but still no results […]

Two youngsters improvise a human chain to rescue an exhausted puppy from a Bangkok canal.
Is that the cha cha cha or maybe the booggie woogie ?
A seagull in Scotland has developed the habit of stealing chips from a neighborhood shop. The seagull waits until the shopkeeper isn’t looking, and then walks into the store and grabs a snack-size bag of cheese Doritos. Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and shared by other birds. The seagull’s shoplifting started early this […]
Here’s an interesting hack made by Joachim from Stockholm. The project uses the good old Bjarnum brackets and Jarpen shelves (in oak) topped off with pieces of an IKEA wool carpet. On the very top shelf sits an IKEA Bastis cat bed, which is, I’m guessing, the most coveted spot in the house. More details […]
I’m a cat lover myself but I also have 2 dogs which I love too … but not as much as I love my cat 😀 . I love cats more because they groom themselves. We don’t need to wash our cats. But it’s the opposite with dogs. Dogs usually stink if not washed at […]
Sure a lot of you want to be an evil scientist and play with DNA and other stuff like that. Maybe you we’re thinking about making a wolf-penguin or something, right ? You can do whatever you want with animals … but only in PhotoShop. Here are some nice animal photos manipulation: Which one is […]
