Dominic Husson and Louise Véronneau both love cats, and so they wanted to celebrate their wedding with them. So, the couple from Montreal, Canada, flew to Parlier, California, near Fresno, to the Cat House on the Kings, a no-cage, no-kill cat sanctuary, where they performed a ceremony in front of about one thousand feline guests.

“We are both animal lovers, and it shows she’s a great person, and that’s why I wanted to marry her,” Husson told NBC News.

Cat House on the Kings has been home to 24,000 cats and 7,000 over the past 24 years. Husson and Veronneau are the first couple to get married at the sanctuary.

May this marriage blessed by kittehs, be a marriage that lasts to eternitehs.

Me-ow… It’s Me

The East Bay SPCA in Northern California has created “Meow“, an adorable and frankly tear-jerking parody of Adele‘s song “Hello” that speaks from a cat’s point of view.

The music video features adoptable kittens. The East Bay SPCA video promotes cat adoption while telling a silly, yet touching story of a little girl, woman and older gentleman’s visit in hopes of adopting a kitten. The kittens promise their potential adopters that they will do whatever it takes to be the best pets ever!

Every kitten that appears in the video was adopted from the East Bay SPCA. Thank-you YouTube Channel East Bay SPCA for this touching video!

 

Starring:
Coral, Cantaloupe and Calvin (the black kitten)
Brian L. Koponen – Older Gentleman
Laila – Young Woman
Lana – Little Girl & (her real) Dad

Crew:
Director/Camera: Hai-Lam Phan
Producer: Dawn Poomee
Production Assistant: Yajnaseni Das Vincent
Music Production: Douglas Widick
Singer: Amanda Shechtman (amandashechtman.com)

Lyrics:
Meow, it’s me.
I’m the cat / who’s your new best friend, / that you have yet to meet.
I am fluffy,/ and so cute.
They say that I don’t really smell, and
My purrs can do much healing.

Meow, can you see it?
We’ll be cuddling, / dreaming about all the fun we will have.
We can catch the laser, / and let it go,
And I think you so beautiful/ when I wake you up in the morning.
There’s such a future, between us,
If you just take me home…

Meow from the Inside
I promise you that I’ll try…
To keep you / toasty /in the coldest of nights.
And to give you/ a part / of what is me.

meow from the Inside
I promise you that I’ll try…
To be there/ for you/ in the worst of times
But you just have to /give me/ a chance to go home, to go home.

Meooooww…take me home.
Meooooww…take me home.
Meooooww…take me home.
Take me home.

 

Happy Caturday =^_^=

Thank-you Pet Shelters

Yesterday was National Pet Day. I saw so many awesome pictures and videos, read so many heartwarming stories, but one in particular caught my attention. The Animal Wellness Foundation, in Los Angeles, CA, made a video of their shelter pets, before and after they were ready to be adopted, and it really tugged at my heart strings.

So, thank-you, to all of those people who work at Pet Shelters everywhere, who make sure that little critters get the best medical and emotional attention they need, before finding their furever homes.

 

DISCLAIMER: This video contains some pets being cured of ailments. Viewer discretion is advised.

Thank-you Youtube Channel Animal Wellness Foundation for this emotional yet informative video.

 

Happy National Pet Day :-)

The Dog with Two Noses

Toby, a two-nosed, 2-year-old Border Collie-Australian Shepard mix from California, has thankfully escaped being put down, finding a new forever home alongside two other dogs with unusual physical attributes.

 

The canine was caught while wandering the streets of Fresno, and was due to be put down, until Todd Ray came across a post from a local animal shelter and asked about adopting him. Ray and his wife immediately agreed to adopt Toby. Toby now lives with Ray’s family, which includes two other dogs, Rocky, a five-legged Miniature Pinscher, and Pinky, a two-legged Chihuahua.

 

“For me, they are incredible. I’m fascinated by unique animals’ beautiful differences and by the magical lessons that they teach us,” he said.

“The uniqueness of their forms show us that ‘normal’ doesn’t exist. The sad thing is that, at this time, people are at a place where they will let a two-nosed dog get put down before they will adopt him – only because he looks different.”

 

Thank-you Todd Ray, for seeing the beauty and import of all dogs.

Thank-you YouTube Channel venicebeachfreakshow for this awesome video.

The Miracle & Aftermath of a Sea Otter Birth

On Saturday, March 5th, a a pregnant wild sea otter took shelter in the Great Tide Pool of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, in Monterey, California, and gave birth to her pup, while guests and staff watched the miracle of life in action. Their sea otter researchers have been observing wild otters for years but had never gotten to see a birth this close.

 

Two days ago, on March 8th, the wild sea otter mom and her pup headed out into Monterey Bay, to begin their lives together. May they remain happy and healthy, as they play their part in returning the sea otter population to its former glory.

 

Thank-you, Monterey Bay Aquarium, in your tireless efforts that have created a bastion for the California sea otter.

 

DISCLAIMER: This video shows a sea otter giving birth and might be considered graphic.

Thank-you, YouTube Channel Monterey Bay Aquarium for sharing this miracle with all of us.

 

Happy Ottersday :#)

Abandoned Sea Otter Pup Gets New Home in Chicago

Sea otter pup 719 was rescued by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Sea Otter Program, after she was separated from her mother during a terrible El Niño storm. After unsuccessfully trying to reunite he with her mother, they took her back to the Aquarium.

When 719 stranded, all of their available surrogates were already paired with other rescued pups, so their next option was to find a forever home for the pup. Luckily, friends and colleagues at Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, Illinois had room available in their sea otter exhibit!

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at her journey from rescued pup to new member of the Shedd family. Thank-you YouTube Channel Monterey Bay Aquarium for this fantastic footage. I love the sounds of the waves at the beginning.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium has the only program in the world that focuses on rescuing and caring for stranded southern sea otter pups. They raise pups for release back into the wild, and try to place non-releasable pups in long-term homes at accredited U.S. aquariums and zoos.

Prepping a pup for release to the wild is an intensive, long-term project. After initial guidance through early developmental stages from our Sea Otter Program staff, pups must complete a survival skills class with one of our five resident female sea otters during a months-long surrogacy. It’s a lot of work for everyone involved!

Thank-you Monterey Bay and Shedd Aquarium for doing your part to save the Sea Otter. <3

 

Happy Ottersday :#)
