Jayden, a 6-year-old with Type 1 diabetes, likes to look out the window in his room at the Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. The Houston Zoo is located across the street, so he's trying to see the animals.

"We always drive by the zoo to get to the hospital," says his mother. "He had mentioned, 'Mommy, I just want to go to the zoo.' "

But thanks to a little technology, Jayden didn't have to leave his hospital bed to see jaguars, giraffes and sea lions.

There's a long history at PEOPLE Pets of animals carrying out the dreams of our editors. Last September, Joseph Gordon-Levitt planted a kiss on a kitten. Before that, Tom Hardy puckered up to a pooch. Today, we add two more to that illustrious list: a pair of huskies fortunate enough to cuddle Benedict Cumberbatch.

The British actor recently graced the cover of High Life magazine, the in-flight publication of British Airways, and the cover story's writer took to Twitter to share some precious outtakes from the shoot.

This Might Be the Most Well-Dressed Kangaroo We've Ever Seen

She may not be on any official best dressed lists, but we'd take style advice from this kangaroo any day.

Boomeroo – who was adopted by Virginia resident Julia Heckathorn at just 3 weeks old – boasts an entire wardrobe of human clothing. Among the duds filling her closet: shirts, sweaters and dresses, all purchased from baby shops.

"When we first got Boomeroo, she was wearing a little shirt, and she's worn clothes ever since," Heckathorn, 28, told the U.K.'s Daily Mail. "She loves her tops, and when I have to take her top off to clean it, she puts her arms out and waits for me to dress her again."

Firefighter Saves 7-Ft. Boa Constrictor from Burning House

Update 04/02/2014 07:30 AM Originally posted 04/01/2014 01:45 PM

A firefighter put his reptile-handling experience to good use when he rescued a 7-ft.-long boa constrictor from a burning home in western Michigan.

Muskegon firefighter Scott Hemmelsbach told the Muskegon Chronicle that he reluctantly agreed to enter the two-story, smoke-filled house Sunday night to retrieve the snake. He says he cradled the "weighty" snake before carrying it to safety.

"It was trying to crawl up the side of his terrarium and get out," Hemmelsbach said. "His face was pushed up on the screen and trying to get out. There was a lot of smoke, and he was trapped."
