From wars to poverty, there is an exponential amount of strife circumnavigating the globe. Socially, economically and politically when we go mano-a-mano with each other, we can’t seem to get it right, no matter how many centuries have come to past. But environmentally, this should not be the case, particularly when it pertains to other lifeforms that share the planet with us. Extinction is serious business. The wiping out of an entire species is an unbalance that has consequences — and it’s unthinkable we are not doing more to thwart conditions that lead to that type of travesty.

There is a cat living in a hostel in the Swiss Alps who secretly leads another life  (one of nine, of course) as a St. Bernard rescue dog. Not confused at all, this  amazing cat rescued a hiker from the mountainside who was lost and injured by leading him to safety.

In Western countries we don't think anything is wrong with having pets in our homes and loving them with a full heart. For hardline, conservative Muslims it is a different matter entirely.

Ever since Freud deconstructed the human psyche into three discernible parts, namely our id, ego and superego — folks have been flocking to psychiatrist’s couches for almost 100 years now to learn more about what makes them tick. But what about our pets? What about those furry four-legged and feathered winged friends-of-the-family that not only have to put up with their master’s neuroses, but might just have a few ‘ticks’ of their own (literally and figuratively.)

In the Russian town of Obninsk, a true miracle occurred, but it was not of the religious kind. A heroine cat saved the life of an infant boy by keeping the baby's body warm as it lay in the freezing  stairwell of an apartment complex.

Those large jars of puffy cheese balls you see in the stores can be sooooo tempting. They are not on your diet. You know they aren't good for you, but . . . well . . . sometimes you've just gotta. That kind of thinking was probably behind a young bear's dilemma when he got his head stuck inside one of these jars. His desire to taste the cheesy residue of this tasty treat nearly cost him his life.
