AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Puppies. Field trips. Aquariums. What more do you need?!

Since the coronavirus pandemic is still running ramped, businesses across the world are shut down. The Georgia Aquarium is one of the businesses being affected but luckily for Odie and Carmel…the two cutest distractions you’ll see today…there was a private tour scheduled today. The Atlanta Humane Society posted a video of the furry field day on their social media and it is racking up thousands of views by the minute. The adorable pair of pups don’t seem to be all that interested in the aquatics around them but who cares they still look like they are having the best day ever!

Take your mind off of the crisis in the world and check out the pups below!

OMG! You Have To Watch These Seniors Play A Life-Size Game Of Hungry-Hungry Hippo

Published

on

Just because you’re in a nursing home doesn’t mean you have to grow up.

I identify with the elderly. I love a soft food and a 9pm bedtime. Even with those charming qualities, I am nowhere near as adorable as the seniors at Bryn Celyn Care Home who used their isolation to bring a classic children’s game to life. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the seniors at the Wales nursing home decided to combat the loneliness by playing a giant version of the classic Milton Bradley board game, Hungry Hungry Hippos. The staff creatively attached laundry baskets to the ends of  broomsticks, set out a pile of balls into the center of the room and then had their wheelchair bound seniors act as the hungry hippos.

While the video, shared on the home’s Facebook page, is obviously entertaining and yanks on literally every heart string, the care facility is using the post to alert the public that they hiring for positions in caring for residents. If you own pair of giant dice and happen to be in the south of Wales, this could be the perfect job for you! (Giant dice not necessary*)

Times are dark and we all need a good distraction. Take a look at the adorable video below!

Adorable Penguin Couple Take Private Tour Of Chicago Aquarium Amid Closure

Published

on

I hope Disney and Pixar are paying attention because a penguin couple who spend their date night wandering around a closed aquarium sounds like a hit animated movie plot in the making.

The Shedd Aquarium over in Chicago closed earlier this week due to the COVID-19 outbreak. While that news is devastating for all aquatic enthusiasts, there are a few tuxedoed guests that are taking full advantage of the private time. Edward and Annie are a pair of bonded Rockhopper penguins on the cusp on nesting season who are using the empty aquarium as their romantic stomping grounds. The pair of penguins are traveling from exhibit to exhibit checking out some of the marine life they have never even seen before. The adventures of Edward and Annie are being documented by the aquariums Twitter account who also shared that the couple will begin building their nest next week. If I talk any more about nesting I will feel obligated to play Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” so I think I will just end it here.

Enjoy some adorable footage of Edward and Annie’s exciting adventure!
