    Cat ‘Turns Into Liquid’ to Squeeze Under Door in Incredible Video

    They say that cats have nine lives, but one feline in a recent viral video appears to have an additional super power—she can travel through closed doors. In footage posted to TikTok by Stlrgrl8717, a black and white cat can be seen squeezing under a door. The pet, whose name is Holly, navigates the tight spot by going head first, then twisting her body from side to side as she shuffles on the carpet. The manoeuvre is so impressive that it appears as though the cat has turned to liquid in order to get under the door. Text overlaying the video, which was shared on May 30, reads: “Our cat,…

    Pandemic pets are a ‘furry annuity,’ says Petco CEO

    NEW YORK (AP) — Yummy, a 12-year-old Labrador retriever, is in Petco’s San Diego offices so much he has his own title. “We call him the chief dog officer,” says CEO Ron Coughlin, the real top dog at Petco, who brings Yummy to work every day. “He sits right next to me in my office.” It’s a good time to oversee a company that sells leashes and squeaky toys. Americans spent a record $103.6 billion on their pets last year, up 7% from 2019, as more people sought the comfort of a furry friend during the pandemic, according to the American Pet Products Association.

    ‘I’d rather work myself to the bone than have an animal suffer.’ Jackson woman up for national award

    JACKSON, MI – Stephanie Titler was at her job as a veterinary assistant when she received a message on social media from a stranger, asking if she could help with a racoon stuck on the frozen lake behind her house. “She could tell the racoon was breathing but it wasn’t moving,” Titler, of Jackson, said of the January 2020 incident. “She said she contacted animal control and they told her they were too busy.

    Despite ancient cat connections, Cyprus is swamped with strays

    NICOSIA, June 24 (Reuters) – Every day at dawn, as Dinos Ayiomamitis’ small truck slowly navigates the pathway of a cemetery, cats quietly emerge from among the surrounding tombstones. “Here you go, Bourekka mou,” he murmurs using a Cypriot term of endearment, as the animals circle his legs and wait for him to scoop food from the back of his pickup for them to eat. Ayiomamitis is one of a number of volunteers struggling to feed the thousands of stray cats on the Mediterranean island. “There has been no official count, but based on our own assessment it’s equal to the number of people, at least,” said Ayiomamitis, who feeds…
