THIS PIGLET IS TOO CUTE! You can skip to :30, that’s the best part. It’s so adorable. 

I can’t wait until I get a piglet! I’m going to love her or him sooooo much. But until we all get our own piglets, we can support the lil’ guys at Animal Place!

This is a hedgehog named Kayak! Which is a great name because it is a palindrome. He was a sick boy taken in by the Hedgehog Welfare Society. Now he’s a superhero! Yay Kayak! Fall with enthusiasm!

A kitten unable to walk learns how right in front of your eyes!  »

Here’s your happy story for the day! This little kitten was born with a neurological disorder that made his back legs weak. But with a little help… well, you’ll see.

He’s so cute! I love the black splotch on his head, right? Any readers have pets born with health issues? We hear so many stories about them but I wonder if they actually find homes.

Piglet Yoda falls off truck, gets a chance at life!  »

imageHere is your sweet story for the day! This little piglet, named Yoda by the sanctuary that adopted him, was in a truck on his way to the slaughter house when he managed to escape. Police found him and now he’s a proud resident of the Wishing Well Sanctuary in Canada!

"He just loves to crawl into people’s laps and be held. He’s a little angel," says Bronfman [Wishing Well Sanctuary founder].

Bronfman says Yoda has a few bumps and scrapes, but the vet gave him a clean bill of health last night.

She says Yoda is doing everything a little pig should be doing, and she’s even bought him a little sweater to keep him warm.

The Wishing Well Sanctuary permanently adopts animals, meaning that Yoda never has to leave the farm.

"He’s just going to live the rest of his, god willing, long life. And will be happy with the other pigs and all the attention. There is always somebody on the farm, and he will just be loved for the rest of his natural life," says Bronfman.

Omg I can’t wait until I get my own piglet! I think I will name him Spaz. Wouldn’t that be cute? “Hey, Spaz! Come get your brekkie!”*

*I was just told Spaz is a derogatory term. I had no idea! I’m very sorry to have offended people. If you read the Wikipedia entry, I think you’ll see the origin of my confusion.** Instead, I will name my piglet “Knowledge.” Knowledge Rascal.

**also interesting (to me at least) about what wiki says is that I did learn the term from the The Elastik Band’s song. Thanks for nothing, bros!

These kittens have no time for you, are still cute!  »

I love this project by NYC-based photographer Arne Svenson! Strays is a series of portraits of lil’ kittens from Animal Kind, but as you see, they aren’t your average portraits. These kittens have no time for you!

If you’re a pet stalker like me, you know the troubles of trying to photograph your pets only to have them turn their heads. Figaro straight up turns his head to the side deliberately whenever I try to take a pic. UNLESS I give him a treat. Jerk.

Read the backstory here. I just think these are so funny, right? It’s like the “I’m not listening!!!!” ear plugging thing. But more of a silent protest. Go ‘head kittens, get your civil disobedience on.

The News You Need: Baby Elephant plays in mud, is cute as all get out  »

Can’t see the video? Watch it on Vegansaurus.com!

Here’s your cute for the day—nay, for the month! Seriously, it’s ridic. This is little Navaan, born in a sanctuary in Thailand. His mother “worked” for an illegal logging operation until she stepped on a land-mind and couldn’t work anymore. So then she was forced into a breeding program. When she didn’t get preggers, Elephant Nature Park* was able to secure her as a new resident. But guess what! She was totally preggers! But no one knew. Then one night, bam! Navaan! And what a happy boy he is! Are you going to die from the cuteness? I plan on it.

*I love this from their site: “At ENP, there are no tricks. There are no rides. No elephant paintings can be bought. Here, these elephants are allowed to live their lives free from bullhooks, free from abuse.”

Have you seen these orphaned baby fruit bats? Look at them, with their tiny baby bat blankets and their tiny baby bat bottles! Just look at them being so insanely cute I can’t even take it!

I was planning on going down to Australia and batnapping them immediately, but Grist says the Australian Bat Clinic, where they live, could really use some donations and volunteers, so maybe a less felonious trip is in order.

[thanks to my brother for the tip!]

Dog saves kitten from ravine! Nurses her as her own!  »

imageAnimal Control in Greenville, S.C., got a call about a dog stuck in a ravine. An officer went to check it out and climbed down, following the dog’s howls. What does she find when she gets there? The little dog was nursing a kitten! OMG DON’T DIE! OK YOU CAN DIE!

The officer believed the dog could have climbed back up from the revine but couldn’t bring the kitten and didn’t want to leave her. Watch this video, the best moment is in the first few seconds—the dog totally grabs the kitten by the scruff! 

Can’t see the video? Watch it on Vegansaurus.com!

Anderson County PAWS recently updated their fb to say the dog and kitten are off to foster care together. Though like the video says, this dog looks like she came from a good home, so I hope the family comes to claim her—and wants a kitten!

Twit Twoo… How many owls can you spot? A tiny owlet is almost invisible at first glance as it blends into the feathers of its mother. Even wildlife photographer Marina Scarr only realised she had taken pictures of two owls after she looked at the image on her camera while taking pictures in Desoto Park, Florida.
