Sometimes Curiosity Rescues The Cat

A couple was taking an evening stroll along the Winnebago River in Mason City, Iowa, when they noticed a man on the North Kentucky Avenue bridge as he dropped a duffel bag into the river. It was such a strange sight that they just had to find out what he was disposing of. They fished the bag out of the water and were shocked to realize that the bag was moving and making noise.

Pop-Up Cafes Become Pup-Up Cafes For Dogs In Los Angeles

Pop-up cafes are a popular trend these days. In January an unusual version appeared in Los Angeles. It was a pop-up dog cafe. The temporary eatery featured a bevy of friendly canines from local shelters seeking forever homes among the patrons. Customers paid a fee of $15 or $20 to get in, have a bite and a sip, and revel in an abundance of dog wiggles, wet noses, and warm tongues.

Cuddle Clones: Your Pet Re-Created

In his memoir Alan Alda implored us to "Never Have Your Dog Stuffed." When it comes to taxidermy this is probably sound advice. This may be true of cloning your pet as well. There is a more realistic (and totally fake) alternative -- the Cuddle Clone. The company takes the image of your pet and turns that into a fun and adorable plush toy. Your cat can have a twin. Your horse can have a Mini-Me. You can remember them forever.

The Six Million Dollar Dog?

Remember the days of Steve Austin’s transformation from an appendage-damaged astronaut into a stealth CIA operative? The TV Show, The Six Million Dollar Man became an instant TV hit, positioning actor Lee Majors as pop culture icon of the 1970s and spawned a good number of spin-offs including The Bionic Woman.

The Tale Of The Corn Flake Python

There is nothing quite as shocking as finding a python hanging out somewhere in your home. On Tuesday Jarred Smith, 22, in Australia was fixing himself some lunch when he discovered a python had stuffed itself into his box of corn flakes. It should come as no surprise to anyone that he dropped his noontime vittles and made a run for it. The snake was more than six feet long and that is enough to make most of us burn some shoe leather.

Revenge Of The Hounds: Karma Is A Dog And His Friends

What goes around comes around. You reap what you sow. Karma is a bitch. No matter how many clichés you apply to something there are times when you've just got it coming. Animal lovers everywhere are cheering for the dog who took revenge on a car owner in China who kicked it by going and getting its friends to chew the heck out of the car. To them he got his "just desserts."

That’s A Horse Of A Different Chameleon

You’re probably familiar with the two animated chameleons who’ve been actively selling Valspar Paint for the last couple of years in TV commercials. You know . . . those two lizard-like creatures who are able to camouflage the color of their body to blend into their surroundings.

Mr. Fancy: A Cat's Journey Home

While it has long been jokingly said that you don't adopt a cat, it adopts you, there are times when cats go out of their way to prove how true that is. In the case of Mr. Fancy, a tabby cat, he had chosen where his heart belonged and nothing was going to stand in his way to be with the family he loved. Even the family had to accept the fact that they were his -- forever.

Maybe They Should Call It A Chair-opotamus!

Hippos are fairly cute for an animal that is big and bulbous with yards of fat folds. In the wild they are extremely territorial and very dangerous. When a hippo is The Hippopotamus Chair in your living room, however, it is all just as cute and chubby as it is in your imagination. Better than that you can climb on its back and pretend to ride it around, give it a potted palm to munch on, and use it to freak out the dog.

Crows Give Girl Gifts Of Appreciation

Eight-year-old Gabi Mann of Seattle started feeding crows when she was just four. It wasn't intentional. She just has a habit of accidentally dropping food wherever she went and the crows started to notice and keep an eye on her for the fallout. This caused her to notice the birds in return. Before long she was sharing the lunch Mom had packed for her while she was on the way to the bus, and her brother began to do the same.
