Well, it’s springtime here in Ohio, so naturally my dogs have decided they need to roam. I came home the other night at about 10:30 and walked in the door with my hands full, so I couldn’t grab them or get the door shut before they got loose.

Amy Jung and her son Ethan stopped into The Humane Society near their home in Wisconsin to play with the cats, but one feline — a 21-pound cat named Pudding — stood out to the pair. They made an impulsive decision to adopt him and his friend Wimsy. That same night, Jung, who has had diabetes since childhood, started having a diabetic seizure in her sleep. That’s when Pudding sprang into action. The fast-acting feline sat on Jung’s chest in an attempt to wake her up and when that didn’t work, he nudged and nipped her face until she briefly returned to consciousness. In that moment, Jung was able to call out to Ethan, but he couldn’t hear her calls. Luckily, Pudding darted into Ethan’s room and pounced on the bed until he woke up and was able to call for help.
Now that’s some cat!
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

A little girl was watching a lion try to eat his breakfast at the Wellington Zoo in New Zealand. The lion, Malik, who is apparently prone to mood swings, showed the little girl exactly what he thought of her interruption. Watch the video for three-year-old Sophia Walker’s reaction (or lack thereof) to the huge, grumpy lion:
