These 18 Cats Were Busted In the Act. Now They’re Being Hilariously And Adorably Shamed.

A month or two ago, we posted a compilation of dogs being shamed after getting busted in the act. Some of them tore up furniture and others used the carpet the way they would use the grass. Either way, it was pretty darn adorable. So, now it’s the cats’ turn. Unlike the dogs, I’m not entirely sure these cats really care. Judge for yourself.

1. This cat doesn’t even care.

2. This one’s a philosopher.

3. This cat likes to get revenge.

4. This one’s reckless.

5. This cat doesn’t want mom to graduate.

6. This one’s a butthole.

7. This can is a crafty little thief.

8. This one’s just gross.

9. This cat has no idea why mom doesn’t like the taste.

10. This one’s a recycler.

11. This cat swears it was a total accident.

12. This one’s a glutton.

13. This cat has some jerky owners. We’re on his side.

14. This one’s a buttface.

15. This cat doesn’t believe in pre-maritalyl living together.

16. This one’s just mean.

17. This cat doesn’t want his litter box cleaned.

18. And this one’s a pacifist.

Somehow I don’t think this shaming technique has the same effect on cats. In fat, I am waiting for a human-shaming compilation, orchestrated by cats everywhere. Read more: http://viralnova.com/cat-shaming/

This Egg Is So Rare That When It Was Crushed, An Entire Team Leapt Into Action. You’ll See Why.

Have you ever heard of a Kakapo? I wouldn’t be surprised if you haven’t. These incredibly rare parrots live in New Zealand. They are large, scholarly-looking birds that you’d just want to cuddle (if they weren’t a wild animal with really, really sharp claws). Their numbers are rapidly dwindling, they are officially a “critically endangered” species. Researchers can count (and list by name) the number of Kakapos left on earth. That’s why when one chick was in danger, an entire group of rescuers leapt into action.

This little gentleman is a Kakapo, also known as the owl parrot.

Kakapos are large, flightless, nocturnal, ground dwelling parrots. And they are on the brink of extinction. There are approximately only 125 individuals alive today.

So when Lisa, the momma bird, accidentally crushed her egg it was vital for her keepers to attempt to save it.

The keepers used a gentle adhesive to hold the egg together, hoping that the membrane inside and the baby Kakapo weren’t damaged.

All they could do was pray and wait.

Then, a miracle! The little Kakapo broke through the shell on February 28th, 2014.

This chick is the first Kakapo hatched in 2014.

Smile for the camera!

The little chick is growing and staying strong. Hopefully, this is just one chick on the road to helping the Kakapo recover.

Kakapos are unique, wonderful birds of New Zealand. Kakapo Recovery is an organization dedicated to saving the critically endangered animal. They work closely with the Kakapo population of Codfish Island in New Zealand to help boost their numbers. This was dramatically illustrated by the phenomenal breeding event of 2002, when 24 chicks were added to the kakapo population in a matter of months and again in 2009 when 33 chicks hatched. Two kakapo staff work on Whenua Hou, and have to put up with an isolated location and the wild weather of New Zealand’s deep south. It has no roads and is reached by light plane or helicopter. The island is a specially-protected nature reserve, and no unauthorised landing is permitted. If you’d like to help the Kakapo, please visit the Kapapo Recovery’s website and donate to their cause.

What This Clever Dog Does Every Time She Goes For A Walk Is Awesome

Lots of pets have unusual habits. Some like to hide their owners’ socks. Others like to eat out of the litter box.

For Paris, a nine-year-old Boxer, her unusual habit is a lot more environmentally friendly than most. While she goes out for walks, Paris likes to collect plastic bottles, cans, and pieces of trash. She then brings them back home with her and sorts the refuse into recycling bins.

What a clever pooch. We should all be a bit more like Paris, because let’s face it — she’s a whole lot more environmentally conscious than the rest of us.

Seeing This Dog May Shock You At First. But Keep Looking Because What Happened Is Amazing.

You’ll never find a dog like Pig, she is a one-in-a-million kind of canine. She was found in the woods near Atlanta, abandoned by her feral mother. The veterinarian who looked her over at first recommended putting the monstrous puppy down. When Kim Dillenbeck heard about the deformed puppy, she had to see her for herself. Kim had rescued animals before, but never a dog like Pig. Without her adoptive mother’s help, she wouldn’t have been able to survive.

Pig was found alone in the woods.

Without intervention, this unique puppy would have died.

There’s something different about Pig…

The dog’s spine is incomplete, with portions missing. Some of her vertebrae are fused and twisted.

Pig’s also missing a few of her ribs. Her joints and hips are rotated in the wrong positions.

Her spinal cord that divides into two separate cords at her neck.

But even though she has severe deformities, she might just be okay in her new, loving home.

She won’t be able to gain much weight.

However, with enough attention and love, Pig will be just fine.

She knows how lucky she is!

(H/T Twenty Two Words) What Kim did for Pig was an incredible kindness; she single-handedly saved this special dog who would have otherwise been euthanized. Don’t judge a book by its cover. Appearances can be deceiving. Kim discovered what a wonderful creature Pig is, and she wouldn’t have if she would have passed her by.

This Dog Really Wants To Play With This Cat…So Much That He Starts Mimicking Her

Making friends can be one of life’s most difficult challenges. Even when you think you’ve found the perfect bestie, they might need a little more time to feel the same…which is something this hilarious husky is learning the hard way.

He wants to play with his new cat friend so, so bad, but the feline is not convinced. Of course, that doesn’t stop the persistent pup from trying his darnedest.

“See? We have so much in common!”

“Pleeeease, be my friend!!”

Watch the whole adorable encounter here:

Poor guy, he probably just needs to be a bit more patient. I’m sure the little lady will come around in no time! Cuties like those two are bound to get along, eventually.

This Pit Bull Was Thrown Out Because He Wasn’t Perfect, But A Hero Saved Him

Captain is a pit bull that was abandoned by his family because he wasn’t “perfect.”

He was born with a blind left eye and a deformed right ear, and for that reason, his owners abandoned him on the steps of a kill shelter in North Carolina. This typically would’ve been a death sentence for such an unusual-looking dog, but thankfully, these people were kind enough to save him.

North Carolina’s Cause for Paws swooped in and rescued him from the brink of death, and the kind cutie is beyond grateful.

Nicole Horabik is the woman who saved the puppy and placed him at the Cause for Paws facility.

Captain was only 8 weeks old when he was rescued from the kill shelter.

Horabik later wrote an emotional Facebook post about Captain’s unfortunate life story and included this photo.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56fdde038a98a”, auid: “537251602” });

Other than his aesthetic defects and his blind eye, Captain has a clean bill of health. There is no reason why he wouldn’t make a wonderful companion.

Rescuers believe that Captain’s next owners will be more loving toward the affable pup because he’s so gentle and friendly. Let’s hope that they’re right!

This Is A Moment That Would Make Your Heart Stop. Watch What This Cheetah Does.

While on safari in Tanzania, Australian photographer Bobby-Jo Clow had a cheetah encounter that made wildlife enthusiasts jealous the world over. Even if you’re not a lover of big cats, her recent encounter will still intrigue you. A curious juvenile cheetah and his sibling spotted the Land Rovers rolling through their home, so they decided to do something incredible.

During the safari, a friendly cheetah popped his head in to say hello.

He was fairly young, and curious as a newly born kitten.

He and his sibling were really interested in the photographer and her friends.

Cheetahs are one of the few big cats that can actually purr, but few get close enough to hear it themselves.

“Oh, hi there!” Cheetahs also don’t roar like lions or tigers, they have a variety of other vocalizations they use.

He dangled his paws in front of her face, gave everyone a curious sniff and was happy to be the subject of some pretty spectacular photos.

It would have been hard NOT to reach up and give this cuddly cub a tummy rub.

However, it’s good they stayed in their cars, cheetahs are still wild creatures and their momma was nearby.

But man, are they CUTE.

Cheetahs are graceful big cats that can reach speeds up to 70mph. Although they typically live alone, cheetahs can be found in groups if they are part of young families, or are young males. Cheetahs are typically pretty shy, so the photographers were lucky to get so close to these wild juveniles. I know I’d feel lucky to have this experience. Share it with others!

Ikea Advertises Adoptable Dogs In Their Stores, Because Every Home Needs A Loving Pet

Home For Hope is a project that was born out of a pressing issue in Singapore, the amount of dogs living in shelters and not getting adopted. With a limited budget, most animal shelters can only afford to voice their messages using social media, but the problem with that is their followers are mostly pet lovers who already have adopted dogs. So to reach a broader audience Home For Hope teamed up with IKEA for a much needed exposure for homeless pets. Watch the creation of this heartwarming viral ad campaign in the video below, then go out and adopt a friend for life!
