‘Super rare,’ 1-in-3,000 male calico shelter cat lights up internet and finds a home

When the little kitten Comet was brought to the Animal Foundation in Las Vegas, everyone there was shocked. They understood that they achieved a rare calico cat and that made him the “unicorn of cats. But why was the cat rare?

Calico cats are differentiated by their tri-color coat of fur. According to ASPCA, the distinctive coating is caused by two X chromosomes. And that X chromosomes decide the sex of the cats which is almost always female.

Soon after Comet appeared in the shelter the Animal Foundation posted great news about him. The rare kitten got adopted and now was living happily with his new warm family.

But one cat acted a great role in his life. Buddy was a neighboring cat who walked very close to Garfield when he was out and the adult cat didn’t mint it. Moreover, he liked it very much. Buddy was a little kitten and everything connected to the senior cat Garfield interested him.



Every time he saw Garfield on the porch he was approaching and Garfield liked this very much. They play with each other and when it was time for Garfield to go inside Buddy left him as if the playtime was over and the children had to go inside.



So Garfield was not a cat hater he just hadn’t yet found that one Buddy who would make his life brighter.


Man Quickly Regrets Provoking Bison At Yellowstone National Park

Sometimes it is the best option to be away from wild animals. This man who visited Yellowstone National Park now knew it very well.

Summer is the best time to have fun with your family as children are waiting for this period the whole year and want to see new things and explore the world with their parents.


Recently a man, however, had a very dangerous experience with wildlife and learned that messing with a bison is never a great idea.



The bison was on the road making the traffic very busy so Raymond Reinke, 55, of Pendleton, Oregon, got out of his car and started to shout at the animal. But the wild animal couldn’t bare him that long. So bison attacked the man in front of all the people in their vehicles. The man was soon arrested.



It was a great example and a life lesson for the viewers to remind them once more that in the national parks people should stay in their vehicles as the wild animals are free there and can do whatever they want and go where they want.

The Yellowstone’s website warns: “The animals in Yellowstone are wild and unpredictable, no matter how calm they seem. The safest (and often finest) sight of wild animals is from inside a vehicle. Always remain at the very least 100 yards far from bears and wolves, and at least 25 yards away from all various other animals, including bison and elk.”

Otter Seeks Refuge On Man’s Boat As He Barely Escapes Jaws Of Killer Whale

A close encounter between a killer whale and his prey, an otter, is something 37-year-old John Dornellas recently experienced up close and personal.

Donellas, who works with an Alaskan exploration company and provides area boat trips, saw a near-death experience right before his very eyes.



Dornellas was out on his boat when he saw a commotion taking place in the water. He realized something was rapidly swimming closer and closer to his boat to avoid being eaten by a killer whale. The whale’s dorsal fin can be seen closing in as an otter hurriedly tries to avoid being killed.

All of a sudden, the otter pops up out of the water and takes refuge on the boat with Donellas, who cannot believe what he is seeing.



Are you kidding me,” Donellas says aloud as he films the encounter. “Come on up bud,” he tells the otter.

For the next several minutes, the otter stays safely aboard the boat as the killer whale circles his prey. At one point, the otter goes back into the water and then changes his mind in favor of the boat.

The very close encounter lasted a while, as the otter eventually plunged back into the water once the killer whale distanced himself from the boat.

Watch this unbelievable experience by pressing play on the video below. We are glad this little guy had a happy ending!

Every visitor was touched by the little one’s actions. Heaven used to sleep everywhere he wanted without taking into account anyone around him. He also copied evey single movement his mother did.

When Heaven became 3 months old it was time to introduce him to the herd. Step by step the elephant began his adaptation and became attached to his nanny Sudarat.

Pinocchio is a lovely cat with an uneven face who has won everyone’s heart. Despite his handicapped appearance, he never allows it to prevent him from leading a happy life. He’s much more unique because of his flaws.



The cat came from an elderly woman who ended up with a high needs kitten with a variety of congenital problems, according to Jacqueline from Friends for Life Rescue Network.



When he arrived, he was severely underweight and sluggish, so the staff attempted to help him. Following that, Jackie, the rescue’s founder, contacted Melissa, an animal foster, and requested her to care for the kitten. Melissa, of course, consented to take Pinocchio in.



He was a rambunctious kitty. He is a cheerful and self-assured individual. “It’s unlike any of the other special-needs cats I’ve ever had. They’re all wonderful, but none of them have Pinocchio’s self-assurance “Melissa said.



Look at the video below to see the full story:



Melissa and the other foster children are still finding out what to do with Pinocchio. She makes every effort to provide the greatest care possible so that he might live a long life. Pinocchio, on the other hand, never lets anything get in the way of his being a happy cat and enjoying the life he deserves.
