What This Lady Did For Abandoned Cats Is Amazing

We all have our interests and hobbies. But when a hobby becomes a life mission, that’s when great things happen. That’s what happened with sixty-seven-year-old Lynea Lattanzio. In 1992, she went to a shelter to save few cats, and she returned with 15 kittens. Since then, 28.000 cats went through her house.

“I’m gonna say that I’m at the top of list of the eccentric crazy cat ladies!” jokes Lynea.

At first she lived in a main house with cats. But as more and more cats came, she decided to leave the main 5-bedroom house and move to mobile house in backyard.
In time this grew to be the biggest no-cage sanctuary for feral and abandoned cats in California. Find out more about The Cat House on the Kings and how you may help. There are many adorable cats for adoption.

As the number of cats grew, so did the costs of running the place. Today there are 50 staff members and twice as much volunteers that take care of more than 1000 cats. Lynea estimate that she spends 1.6 million dollars annually to cover costs of maintenance.
There are whole sections on the estate for cats with different needs. There’s a nursery, a part for cat infected with FIV, a cat HIV, because their immune system is compromised, and a whole house just for older cats. There’s also a clinic for ill cats. The vet comes once a week, but they take cats to the vet every day.

Meet Freddy, The Biggest Dog In the World!

Freddy, The Great Dane, is the Guinness World Record holder for being the biggest dog in the world. He weighs amazing 14.5 pounds. Freddy comes from Great Britain, from the city Leigh-on-sea, Essex. This giant lives with his sister Fleur and their proud mama Claire Stoneman. Although they are from the same litter and as a babies they didn’t differ much, Freddy grew much bigger then Fleur.

When Freddy was just a “little” pup, nothing pointed that he would grow to be the biggest dog in the world.

“I took him earlier from his litter as he was not feeding from his mother anymore. Who would have thought that he would grow so much.” – said Clair.

With such a large dog, even a simple walk presents a challenge. Every morning, Clair wakes up very early and takes Freddy for a walk.

“If Freddy runs after another dog, I won’t be able to stop him.” – explains Clair, who is smaller than her dog.

When Freddy raises himself on his hind legs he 7ft 6in tall, and Clair is “only” 5ft 4in. I think it clear now why they go for early morning walks.

While they were in puberty, these cuties, like most dogs, were mischievous. When Freddy and Fleur were young they loved to eat sofas. Opposed to smaller dogs, that cannot wreck that much chaos, they chewed as many as 23 sofas. Although, if it any consolation, in time they learned it much better to sit on them, then to eat them.

How much these fluffsters eat say the fact that Clair spends 12.5 thousands pounds each year on their food. Freddy alone can 2.2 lbs of minced meat, 9 oz of casserole steak and 10.5 oz of liver each day. But he like most the roast chicken and peanut butter toast. Chicken as a snack, what an appetite, right?

But all of their mischiefs are quickly forgiven.

“They are like my children, it nice when someone needs you. A they really do need me. They are my number one priority in life!” – concludes Clare.

And how a life with two Great Danes looks like, see below:

Amazing Friendship Between Cheetah And Labrador

Meet one-year-old cheetah Kasi and one-year-old Labrador Mtani. Believe it or not, these two are best friends.
In Busch Gardens Tampa, it took one year of hard work to form this unusual friendship. Animals first met when male cheetah cub was 6 weeks old and female lab puppy was 12 weeks old.

A whole team of experts worked on formation of this friendship. In fact, during the first months of their life, these two cuties were not left on their own without supervision. Goal was to stimulate them to socialize without hurting each other. Together they exercised, played and had fun. All the things they both loved to do, they did together in order to get accustomed to each other.

Today, after year’s worth of effort, we can truly say these two are friends. They live together and also visit and educate the world about importance of cheetahs conservation and Busch Garden’s efforts in doing so. As unusual as it might be, this friendship is really strong. Employees at Busch Gardens think it will last for life.

Cheetahs and dogs, although it may not seem so, have much in common. Cheetahs are animals that are active by day, so are dogs. Cheetah males live in coalitions, similar to dogs living in packs.

And how this amazing friendship looks like, see below:

Also it’s worth mentioning that cheetahs are the fastest land animals. They can run up to 65 mph and reach the speed of 45 mph in 2 seconds.

These beautiful African cats are still not endangered species, but are listed as vulnerable by International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Meet Einstein, The Most Talkative Parrot In The World!

She is fabulous, unforgettable, she is Einstein! Albert Einstein might have been the smartest man in the world, but Einstein, African Grey Parrot, is certainly one of the smartest animals in the world. She knows more than 200 words and sounds.

Einstein gained his fame in “Pet Star” competition on Animal Planet in 2006. She mesmerised millions and became a favourite to many.

Her trainer is Stephanie White. She says Einstein is a fast-learner because of sunflower seed that she loves. Every time she would say the word correctly, she would get her favourite seed. It no wonder she mastered over 200 words.

Einstein lives in Zoo Knoxville in Knoxville, Tennessee. Thanks to that, she learned how to imitate the sounds of wild animals. But how she learned to imitate evil villain laugh and Santa Claus laugh we can only guess.

This extraordinary parrot participates in Zoo’s Bird Show with aim to educate thousands of visitors about nature each year. Einstein is a super star of this show and her biggest fans are kids.

African grey parrots inhabit West and Central Africa. In nature they too imitate sounds, build nests in the trees and when they find partner they stay with him for life.

These parrots are known for their intelligence. When one parrot got lost, he repeated the name and address of his owner over and over again. He was returned home quickly. This unusual case happened in Japan and confirms that African grey parrots are truly remarkable animals.

This year Einstein turned 30, so zoo organised a little party.

What kind of peanuts she likes, what she thinks about space ships and which cats she knows to imitate, see below:

Ralphee, Kitten With Special Needs, And Max The Cattle Dog, Can Overcome Any Obstacle Together!

Ralphee and Max are the best friends. Maybe that wouldn’t be so weird, if they weren’t cat and dog. But since Ralphee was saved from a barn, these two are inseparable. Little kitten saved his head, but in the accident lost “only” his tail.

Ralphee is not an ordinary cat. He is an animal with special needs. He was born with cerebellar hypoplasia (CH). This disorder disables him to control fine motor movements and coordination. Ralphee shakes his head involuntary, and when walking he sways to a side. This typical walk is called “drunken sailor walk”. But, as unusual as this condition looks, these cats can live a normal life. They cannot be “cured”, but condition doesn’t get worse either. Cats can learn over time how to control their movement better. Some can even improve walking. But, unfortunately, there’s no cure.This condition is not all that uncommon and cats with it are called “wobbly cats”.

Since Ralphee was found, Max, the cattle dog, follows him around everywhere. He is there for Ralphee if he needs anything. They might be an odd couple, but I believe that these two can overcome any obstacle together! Because love can make miracles.

Apart from all the little problems he encounters, Ralphee is a cheerful, active and happy kitten. He doesn’t let himself be discouraged, and why would he? His best friend Max is always there for him for many adventures yet to come.

And how these two have fun, see below:
