Thula and Iris: A Match Made In Kitty Heaven!

It is a devastating thing to find out that your child is autistic and it is a wonderful blessing when an animal comes into your lives that helps to make your child's life just a little better. For Iris Grace Halmshaw, an amazing 4-year-old artist, this help came in the form of Thula, a Maine Coon cat, who has been able to help her connect with the world outside herself. Thula also helps Iris with her painting.

Dying Woman Visited By Two Of Her Horses

When Sheila Marsh, 77, was dying of cancer recently, she had one last wish -- to see her horses one more time. The staff at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan, U.K. worked to arrange a visit for her from two of her horses. On November 3 she was wheeled out to the parking lot still in her bed for a special and very touching reunion with the beasts.

Squirrel Rescue Caught On Video!

Thomas Patterson of Oakdale, Ontario, Canada, was just out for a day of riverboarding on the water when he noticed a squirrel stranded on a rock in the middle of the river. Being an animal lover, the 22-year-old couldn't just leave the little rodent to its fate -- he had to intervene. He paddled over to the rock and tried to convince the hapless squirrel to jump onto his board.

This Naked Cockatoo Really Rocks

Cockatoos are a popular bird to have as a pet, though they are not the talkers that regular parrots are. They can still be genial pets, though they can be given to tearing out their feathers when faced with psychological challenges. That is what happened to Ophelia (a.k.a. King O) after his owner died. Despite his startling appearance he can really rock out.

Petting Zoo Donkey Makes An Ass Of Itself By Falling Into Open Manhole

Firefighters in the Swiss canton of Basel were recently called out to rescue an ass stuck in a manhole... not that there's anything wrong with that, unless you're the donkey in question.

Tricia And Sweety Prove That Love Is Blind

The life of a dairy cow on those large commercial dairy farms is not a happy one. It is certainly not the pastoral scene of cows gently grazing the grasses of pastures. It is life standing on concrete and being repeatedly impregnated and giving birth until it is time to head for the slaughterhouse. But sometimes someone steps in and creates a happy ending for a cow here and there.

Grumpy Cat Goes Hollywood As The New Grinch For Christmas 2014

Grumpy Cat (aka Tardar Sauce), born April 4, 2012 has been an Internet phenom ever since MSNBC named her ‘2012’s most influential cat.’ She won BuzzFeed’s 'Meme of the Year Award at the 2013 Webby Awards,' which motivated me to post the blog, titled, “Who Put The Grump In Grumpy Cat & Launched A 1000 Memes,” and the rest has been history.

Meet Garfi, The Angriest Cat In The World

Rest in peace Colonel Meow. Move over Grumpy Cat. Garfi, the angriest cat in the world, is here! This scowling, long-haired ginger Persian looks hell-bent on world domination with a sour attitude to match. Okay maybe he isn't out to take over the world. Maybe he's just staring at you while you sleep plotting some sort of revenge for all cat-kind.

Are Dogs Seeing Ghosts On The Overtoun Bridge?

There is something about Scotland that makes it a land of many mysteries and ghost stories. The myth of Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, barely scratches the surface. One place that defies explanation is the Overtoun Bridge, near the town of Milton in the burgh of Dumbarton. It is also known as the "dog suicide bridge" due to the number of dogs that have leaped to their deaths from its heights.

Meet Banye, The Cute Surprised Cat Who Puts The O In OMG

Shock & aww? That seems to describe Banye, a gray & white cat from Shanghai, China, who appears to be surprised by everything, all of the time. Banye's owner has enjoyed both Banye and the never ending series of double-takes he provokes in public since he was just a tiny kitten.
