‘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.

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.

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.

refugee-crisis-357690The Refugee Hostel: Germany’s Islamist Hell

23 February 2016
Life in German refugee hostels has now become so unbearable thatreligious minorities, women traveling alone or with children, and homosexuals are fleeing their accommodations. For them, according to one paper, the word “hostel” has become synonymous with ‘”defenselessness”.
The constant harassment and mistreatment at the hands of Muslim male refugees is not only becoming intolerable and dangerous, but, for some, life-threatening.
“Torn bibles and insults, ripped off crosses and even blows to the face, the complaints about violence in the refugee centers do not let up,” the German newspaper, Die Welt, stated recently.
