Groomsmen adopt malnourished dog and ALL her puppies after finding them cowering in a hole in the woods during Bachelor party

A group of groomsmen adopted a malnourished dog and her litter of puppies after finding them in a hole in the woods during one of the group’s Bachelor parties.
The men from Vicksburg, Michigan, had traveled to Tennessee to celebrate Mitchel Craddock’s forthcoming wedding when the dog appeared at the door of the log cabin they had rented.
They followed her into the woods where they found her seven puppies hiding in a hole, covered in dirt and fleas.
Now all of the dogs live with the men in a five-mile radius.


‘I’ll look after you now’: Caring chimp adopts ‘ugly’ kitten found in Russian zoo after staff refuse to take it home because of its ‘strange-looking’ tail

As the age-old adage goes, a dog is a man’s best friend.
And perhaps the felines of the world have now found their soulmates too, if this tender moment between a kitten and a chimpanzee is anything to go by.
Captured on camera at the Irkutsk city zoo in south-eastern Russia, Lea the young chimp plays with Bobby, an unwanted kitten she took in after it was found in the zoo.
The one-and-a-half-month-old kitten was found in one of the zoo’s enclosures.
Employees at the zoo kept the kitten, but decided to put it in quarantine so as not to endanger the other animals.
Lea the chimpanzee, who is five years old, spotted the tiny kitten while she was walking around the zoo with one of her keepers.

Is that a cat fish? Little feline is spotted swimming a mile out at sea – and she’s doing the doggy paddle!

Curiosity almost killed this cat as it got itself into difficulty swimming a mile out from the shore.
Environmental workers clearing rubbish out at sea could not believe their eyes when they saw the animal swimming way off the coast.
The marine moggy, spotted off Turkey’s biggest city of Istanbul, appeared to have been swimming for a long time in the Golden Horn, the inlet that links the Bosphorus with the city.
A rescue mission was launched to catch the cat, which was visibly tiring and under attack from seagulls.

What a Dumbo! Adorable newborn elephant takes a tumble down a hill as he tries to keep up with his herd – who rush to help him back to his feet

A safari guide captured the adorable moment a newborn elephant managed to stand alone for the first time – only to topple over and roll down a hill.
The elephant – thought to be just one hour old – was exploring its new surroundings at the Djuma Private Game Reserve in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.
In a particularly heartwarming moment, the elder members of the herd are visibly concerned as they race to the calf’s aid, scooping him up with their trunks.

Cats get trapped in obscure places all the time, but few have endured a ride like this cute kitty.

Vitaliy Bouranin, 32, drove 50-miles along a highway on the island of Sakhalin in southeastern Russia, traveling at speeds of over 80 mph in his Toyota Land Cruiser, when he pulled over for gas. It was during that fill-up that he heard the faint sound of a cat’s meow, and proceeded to look underneath the car for the animal’s whereabouts. At first the mysterious meowing remained a mystery, but after a short while, Bouranin noticed a small patch of fur around the wheel well.

from Mar 2010, 10 months old. Probably my favorite video of him running.
Also, just to clarify.. this is PLAY behavior. To those that are unfamiliar with how skunks play, it can look like aggression and defensive behavior. But if you watch baby skunks play together, they stomp, charge, and chase each other. Jasper does this to me when he is feeling extra playful and wants me to stomp and chase back. If he was being aggressive, you’d know it. He’d be growling, spitting, even screaming and trying to bite. The stamping and charging is part of their play routine.
