A Grieving Mama Cat Who Lost Her Babies Finds Happiness Caring for Three Newborn Kittens Who Lost Their Mom

Mikey and 3 Kittens

A beautiful cat named Mikey, whose newborn kittens sadly passed away shortly after birth, was given a compassionate way out of her looming depression while providing much-needed security to three orphaned kittens. Mikey’s human Hillary had contacted the cat rescue agency Dori’s Darlings to see what she could do to help her grieving cat and a foster mother named Amanda Lowe responded with the three kittens.

Just days before Mikey lost her last kitten, Amanda received three baby kittens to foster that were just a few days old, that still had their umbilical cords attached. …Immediately, Mikey started licking them, grabbing them, hugging them. Around 15 minutes later, the cat spread out and rolled over giving the three kittens a nursing invitation. …After two hours, Amanda knew that with Mikey cuddling her new kittens, bathing them, and falling asleep with them, that she was leaving a very happy mama cat and giving the abandoned kittens a new home. She said they even looked like they belonged to one another.

Roughed-Up Rugby Players Get Their Front Molars Replaced With Unique Bottle Opener Implants

Beer Tooth Implant” is a fascinating ad for Salta Beer by Ogilvy Argentina that features a group of roughed-up rugby players each getting one of their front molars replaced with a stainless steel bottle opener implant.

In rugby, wounds heal. Cuts mend. Bruises disappear. But teeth, they are lost forever. Salta beer, main sponsor of the Rugby Union presents an idea to reward players who gave everything they’ve got on the field, including their teeth. We decided to give rugby players back the teeth they had lost in battle. But we weren’t going to give them a simple tooth back. We developed a unique dental implant, a specially designed tooth to open beer.”

Mountains of Mouthness, An Interactive Experiment Featuring Two Animated Mountains Yelling Tweets at Each Other

Mountains of Mouthness is an interactive experiment created by Magnus Östergren and produced by Goo Technologies that features two mountains yelling tweets at each other. Users need only tweet to the @MoMouthness Twitter account or use the #mouthness hashtag, and the mountains will eventually belt it out.

The point to all of this it to make you the visitor write a tweet using the @MoMouthness or #mouthness and your tweet will be picked up and converted by a text-to-speech engine, then loudly recited by one of the mountains in realtime.

Users can also visit the mountains using a smartphone to experience a 360-degree virtual-reality world.

Exuberant Cockatoo Enthusiastically Rocks Out to to His Human’s Acoustic Version of ‘Don’t Be Cruel’

An incredibly exuberant cockatoo visibly rocks out to his human Mark Muldoon‘s acoustic version of the classic Elvis hit “Don’t Be Cruel” by enthusiastically nodding his head, puffing out his feathers, and swaying back and forth in time to the music. The appreciative bird also tries to recruit his pole mate, another cockatoo, who clearly just wants to be left alone.
