Watching A Snow Bengal Kitten Become Friends With A Lab Puppy Is Way Too Precious

At Maplewood Bengals in New York, they raise Bengal kittens — and they’re insanely cute. These exotic cats are adorable on their own, but this particular kitty’s new best friend really ups the precious ante.

These two love playing together, and even though the puppy looks a little bit sleepy in the video below, it’s clear that this dynamic duo is prepping for a lifelong friendship.

It’s a shame that all BFFs can’t be this cute! I have a feeling that these two never fight like cats and dogs.

Sign This Petition To Stop People Who Torture Animals Owning Pets Again

There is nothing good to be said about people who hurt animals, and now there is a petition to try and stop them from ever owning a pet again.

It emerged this week that a little chihuahua called Chunky had been tortured by four teenagers, before being left for dead next tosome bins at the side of the road.

He was found with a broken leg, neck, a burnt face and eyes and had even been force-fed drugs by the teens, who had tortured the poor pup over a number of hours, apparently for their own “amusement”…

The RSPCA officer dealing with the case said:

“This was the most disturbing case I have ever dealt with, by an absolute mile. These youths admitted feeding him drugs, kicking and punching him, and wringing and breaking his neck before dumping him. They also said they set fire to his face and eyes after lighting a deodorant aerosol can. The whole thing sends shivers down my spine.”

Chunky made a miraculous recovery and is happy with a new family (above).

Shockingly though, the boys were only banned from owning an animal for five years. Yes, five years before they could potentially find another dog to have “fun” with.

So one dog-lover, and just generally sane person, Maxine Berry has set up a petition asking David Cameron to permanently ban people who abuse animals. Which, when you think about it, makes crystal clear sense…

You can sign the petition here, and help stop dogs like Chunky being hurt again.

Puppy walks again with prosthetics after neighbour cuts its legs off with a sword

A 9-month-old puppy in Bangkok, Thailand, whose front legs were cruelly hacked off by a neighbour with a sword, has been given a new lease on life.

On Friday, Thai animal welfare group Soi Dog Foundation (SDF) posted a video of the dog, Cola, rocking his brand new prosthetics a few months after the horrific incident.

According to an earlier post by the SDF, Cola was brought to their attention in May of this year. The puppy was apparently caught chewing on a neighbour’s shoes and despite Cola’s owner’s offers to compensate the man, he wasn’t satisfied.

The man returned to Cola’s owner’s house later at night with a sword and attacked the dog. He later threatened the owner that if she was to complain, he’d kill her other dogs.

Cola’s owner contacted the SDF as well the local authorities, and the neighbour was detained. He was sentenced to one month’s detention under the Animal Welfare Law.

Following the attack, Cola was taken to SDF’s headquarters in Phuket to recover. The foundation’s co-founder, John Dalley, told the ABC that Cola is adapting well to the prosthetics.

Although SDF has received a flood of offers to adopt Cola, the furry fighter has found a new family with the Dalleys. Dalley’s wife, Gill, is a double amputee herself.

“Gill and Cola bonded immediately, so he won’t be going anywhere now,” John said.

Microsoft’s New Tool Identifies What Dog Breed You Look Like

For a bit of fun, Microsoft hasdeveloped an application thatidentifies which dog breed a human face looks most like: What-Dog.net.

Simply upload a photograph of your face to the site and it will deliver you a response making an informed guess on what kind of dog you or your friends might be. And dont worry, they’veexplicitly saidthey dont keep anybodys photos.

To go with the desktop version, theres also a free mobile app called Fetch!

The programcomes from the same UK-based team thatcreated other facial recognition apps such as HowOld.net, TwinsOrNot.net, MyMoustache.net and Mimicker Alarm.

In a statement, Mitch Goldberg, a development director at Microsoft Research, said, There was an interest in creating a framework that would allow you to take a domain in our case, dogs and recognize numerous classes, such as breeds. We were interested in enabling an app to allow you to make object recognition extraordinary, fun and surprising.

Give the app a whirl right here. And don’t be too upset with the results it identified our pug as a Staffordshire Bull Terrier:

Tired Of Being Asked About Babies, This Couple Did A Newborn Photoshoot With Their Dog

Abby Lee and Matt Kay are a young Australian couple who have the same problem with their parents as everyone else: they won’t stop rushing them to have babies! So, the moment they added one more to the family, Matt and Abby celebrated it with a newborn photoshoot… that wasn’t exactly what their parents were expecting! The new member of the family is Humphry, a bit too furry to be a baby, but a loving and adorable groodle (a cross between a poodle and a golden retriever).

The person in charge of this furry photoshoot was the photographer Elisha Minette, who had the idea when the couple was driving home from the breeder where they picked up Humphry. “We did this shoot just for a little bit of humour between ourselves, as well as for those that share the same sense of humour as us. Everything went so smoothly. The pup was enjoying every second of it,” said Minette to Buzzfeed. “I think everyone will be seeing a lot more of Humphry in the future!”

To stop people asking about babies, Matt and Abby decided to do a newborn photoshoot…with their dog!
