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!

Residents At A Care Home In England Have Recreated Iconic Album Covers During Lockdown

That’s one for the photo album.

The coronavirus has brought about a number of tough challenges for folks all around the globe but being quarantined in a care home for four whole months has to be among the toughest. With no visitors and no place to go it would be easy for the residents, as well as the caregivers, to give up hope. Well, entertainment manager Robert Speker over at Sydmar Lodge Care Home in Edgware, England found a creative way to keep hope rockin’ with his very photogenic residents and staff.

Over the course of the four month quarantine, Speker worked with some of the home residents and staffers to recreate iconic album covers. His reimagined covers include some of the biggest in music history such as Madonna’s “True Blue,” David Bowie’s “Aladdin Sane,” Michael Jackson’s “Bad” and Adele’s “21”…that’s right I am putting Adele in that league. The inspiring photos shared to social media are trending for all the right reasons. One Twitter user wrote “Calendar? I would buy one!” Another asked “do y’all take requests?” And finally one comment which rings truest of all read “This is what social media was made for.”

Check out some of the covers below!

Need Some Good News? Millions Of Baby Turtles Just Made Their Way To The Ocean

Published

Finally, the universe shells out some good news.

Nature is pretty scary right now. There’s a mysterious virus wafting through the air around the world. There are things called murder hornets zipping to places they shouldn’t be zipping to. At any moment I am waiting for the dust bunnies under my bed to grow fangs and turn on me. Alas, among all the bad news there is bound to be some good news and today’s good news comes in the form of baby turtles.

Over on India’s eastern coast lies Odisha’s Gahirmatha Beach, a nesting spot for the endangered Olive Ridley turtles. Each year around this time millions of turtle hatchlings scamper through the sand and make their way to the ocean. The mass nesting typically attracts thousands of tourists who tend to disturb the nesting turtles but because the coronavirus pandemic has reduced the human activity on the beach, more turtles were able to lay their eggs resulting in one of the highest turtles births ever! Perhaps every grey cloud does have a hardened, turtle-shelled lining.

Check out the video of the amazing good news below!
