Sean almost didn't make it.
After the koala was hit by a car in Melbourne, Australia, a wildlife professional and a team of firefighters performed CPR and heart massage that saved the little animal's life.
According to The Herald Sun, rescuer Michelle Thomas had never done CPR on a koala before, only a dog.
Man's best friend, indeed.
On Thursday, Steven Krichbaum, 59, was walking with his yellow Lab mix Henry in West Virginia's George Washington National Forest when they were confronted with something bear-y scary: two cubs and a larger black bear, who wasn't happy to see them. The animal proceeded to attack, and the guys leapt into action.
Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Sophia, a 3-year-old Pharaoh hound mix who adores people.
According to a bio from the Baltimore Humane Society, this athletic girl is a ball of positive energy. "I have such a fun, bubbly personality that I can make pretty much any situation we are in a fun time!" it reads. "Speaking of bubbly … one of my favorite games is popping bubbles that people blow for me!"
Somebody deserves free pizza for life.
Because this idea – the one we're sure some people laughed off when it was blurted out in a brainstorming session, about cats starring in Pizza Hut Japan's new ad campaign – is now the stuff of legend.
In one of the new spots available on YouTube (and there are many more should you need a break today!), a group of seemingly annoyed cats sit at a table wearing Pizza Hut hats, waiting for their pizza delivery.
If there's one thing a cat knows how to do, it's improvise.
Take boxes for instance. Whenever the FedEx guy leaves one at the door, your cat sees another opportunity for a good day's sleep. So when this cat needed a pillow for its head, the feline simply fetched one from the fruit bowl.
When it comes to using produce as a pillow, however, we do believe this kitty could have chosen a little more wisely. A hand of bananas might be slightly more ergonomic.
They have their differences, but they snuggle through them.
Sometimes you put a pillow over your head. Sometimes you hold your ears. But no matter what you do, you can still hear the penetrating buzz of that horrible appliance – the alarm clock.
Vizsla the dog despises it with a passion too, and in this video, as that beep, well, beeps, she howls like she's giving birth in a display of complete displeasure.
Here are some good reasons to wake a sleeping cat: a tsunami. A fire. Taylor Swift getting a new cat and naming it after her favorite TV character.
These things are important.
But waking a cat up for no other reason than to capture its out-of-this-world shriek on camera, well, that's not helping anyone.
There are lots of things to be sad about these days (example: We're not having Ryan Gosling's baby) but Pixie the cat isn't bothered by any of them.
This 2-year-old feline, who resides in the U.K., has the eyes of a girl who just spent hours crying over a broken heart. But she's really as happy as a mid-nap cat – meaning her looks are purely for the benefit of others, like us.
"She's happy most of the time," the Persian cat's owner, Sophie Batt, says in an interview with the U.K. Daily Mail. "She's always playing or eating."
