Cat Turns UNEXPECTED COLOR After Undergoing Treatment For Fungal Infection!

Did you know that as of 2018 there were more than 183.9 million dogs and cats in the United States alone? It’s true! In the United States of America, pets are common and beloved by families from one coast to the next. Despite having so many pets in the country, pet insurance covers only around 1.2% of all pets! What does this mean? Well, when your kitty gets sick then you are going to have to pay out of pocket. For one pet-owner in Thailand, treating their cat for a fungal infection turned into quite the experience and we aren’t just talking about expenses. If you love turmeric and love cats, you are about to get the perfect story. Let’s jump right in!

When one woman in Thailand noticed that her cat was struggling with an infection, she wasn’t entirely sure as to what to do. Like people in the United States, this cat owner didn’t have any pet insurance and she sure wasn’t in a hurry to lose her finances over a potentially minimal problem. Upon inspecting her cat, she noticed that the furry little animal had been struggling with a minor fungal infection. Infections can quickly get out of hand, so it is important to act as soon as you are made aware of them.

As the cat owner from Thailand looked over her pet, she realized that fungal infections could be treated through household remedies. After spending some time on the internet, the pet owner would find a remedy that included a turmeric rub. While her cat wasn’t going on the grill, it certainly would smell like the inside of her pantry after this treatment! Understanding that the treatment wouldn’t harm her cat, the owner began to make a paste out of the common kitchen spice before coating her cat’s wound with the medicine.

According to the recipe that the cat owner had followed, side-effects were incredibly unlikely. Still, the pet owner was careful as she applied the paste liberally from one section of her cat’s tail all the way to her furry little head. The poor cat and lady would undergo a shocking revelation when they realized that the turmeric had died the cat’s fur yellow! The cat, named Ka-Pwong, would end up recovering from the fungal infection but their yellow fur would not be forgotten.

After taking a few pictures of Ka-Pwong, the cat owner would share the images on the web where they would quickly go viral. The cat’s entire coat would be colored a bright yellow with streaks of orange. Ka-Pwong, typically a white cat, ended up looking like the very clone of a real life Pikachu! Thankfully, the cool coat was not the only benefit that Ka-Pwong received. The turmeric ended up aiding the healing process while preventing Ka-Pwong from licking the wounds. Now, Ka-Pwong is free from infection and instead viral on the internet!

What do you think of Ka-Pwong’s yellow coat? Would you want your own ‘Pikachu’ in the future?!

After 5 months of impromptu travel around the world, Pipsqueak the adventure canine reunites with her family

The wave of the pandemic saw the separation of a little daschund from her family during a four-year sailing trip with her Australian family. 

As the pandemic built momentum across the world, her owners, Zoe and Guy Eibeck and their kids all rushed back home, but sadly, their dog Pipsqueak couldn’t. 

Since the separation in March, Pipsqueak travelled 17,000 kilometers to her home in Sydney- a journey most humans can’t boast of. The adventure took her through North and South Carolina, Los Angeles, Auckland, and Melbourne. It must have a scary journey for her, especially since she was in the company of strangers along the way.

At a point, it seemed like fate didn’t want Pipsqueak back home. The poor canine was booked on a cargo flight from Melbourne to Sydney, but unfortunately, it was full. In light of this, she had to take a longer route before she could be reunited with her family in Sydney. 

Her story got some attention, and luckily, Virgin Australia swooped in to save the day. Little Pipsqueak was booked on an early flight to Sydney for her to rest her tired legs.  

According to Olivia Cayzer, a crew member on the flight, the daschund was given the VIP treatment. Well, she deserved it and more after the kind of ordeal she had been through. 

Pipsqueak was finally reunited with her family after an early drop-off. She was led through the terminal where the whole Eilbeck family was waiting for her with open arms and gushing emotions. 

“She’s part of our family and it’s been five months and that’s a long time time to miss anybody,” Mr Eilbeck said. 

“During these difficult times it’s nice to be able to put a smile on someone’s face,” said Glen Monoley, Virgin Australia group general manager. In his statement, he said that he was glad they played an important role in reuniting Pipsqueak with her family after many months apart.

Identical Twin Sisters Married To Identical Twin Brothers Both Announce Pregnancies

No one knows if this was planned, but identical twins Brittany and Briana Salyers, married to Josh and Jeremy Salyers – also identical twins are both expecting at the same time. They broke the news via a Baywatch-themed Instagram post on Friday, and the story has made headlines since then. 

In the Instagram post captioned “Guess what!!?? BOTH couples are pregnant!,” Josh and Jeremy wore lifeguard costumes while their brides, now to be mothers, dressed up in one-piece bathing suits that read “Baby Watch,” and struck poses that clearly gave off their baby bumps. The rest of the caption also states the fact that their children will be cousins, genetic siblings, and quaternary multiples! Isn’t that amazing? 

The twin couples hit the spotlight when they appeared on TLC’s Our Twinsane Wedding, and this wonderful news only two years after shows how well their journeys as wedded couples has gone. Their joint marriage was officiated by identical twin ministers at the 2018 Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio – exactly where they had met only one year ago. The marriage ceremony was themed “Twice Upon a Time” and now they are expecting to add at least two more members to their happy twin family. 

Brittany revealed at the marriage ceremony that the idea of living in the same house to raise their children together in harmony made them really happy, and now they get to bring their imaginations into reality. Brittany said, “When we have children, my and Josh’s children will be genetic siblings to Briana and Jeremy’s Children. We imagine it will be like two moms and two dads all raising our families together.”

The sisters share a special bond typical of twins. Before their double pregnancy revelation, Brittany and Briana have always shared the urge to do things the same way- matching outfits, and double dating, which eventually led to their marriage to Josh and Jeremy. Each one of the sisters sees herself as incomplete without the other- something like being two halves of a whole. 

From the joint wedding to the joint pregnancies, everything has felt like a fairytale. According to Briana, getting married to identical twins has always been the goal, and they had already foreseen it since their kindergarten days. 

They knew the chances of having such a perfect future were really slim. For their dreams to come true, the stars had to align in quintessential harmony, and it seems like they did. 

In Brittany’s own words, “I get to marry the man of my dreams and at the same time I get to look over next to me and see my twin sister marrying the man of her dreams.” 

Their fairytale story can get a lot better if they both give birth to twins. Yes, the chances of that happening are like a googolplex to one, but who knows? It just might happen.

Adorable Pop Culture Dog Fence Brightens Neighborhood

Dogs are a special light in many people’s lives, thanks to their infectious personalities and undoubtedly adorable faces. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, dogs have played an especially important role, keeping their owners company and entertaining families while they stayed safe and stayed home.

Out of all the sweet, feel-good stories that have emerged this year, one of the best for dog lovers comes from a pretty pooch named Burger King, or Burger for short. Burger and his brother Ripley are part of the Stanley family, and their owner Brian hatched a plan to boost morale in their neighborhood with the help of his four-legged pals.

As COVID-19 flipped the world upside down, Brian decided to make some changes to their yard. After finding himself without work and his son at home following the school closures, he and his son Cameron were left to hang with the dogs all day. Burger and Ripley are always watching their neighbors and keeping a close eye on them through a hole in the fence. This is a huge pastime for the dogs as they spend a good chunk of the day examining the neighbor’s every move. None of the local residents or passer-by seemed to mind the observers, but Brian thought he could step things up a notch and make the dog’s pastime more fun.

Brian got to work, adding an artistic flair around the hole to give Burger and Ripley an unforgettable background. His creation became a big hit with the neighborhood, who eagerly await the next masterpiece. All of the dog fence art is built from cardboard, so Brian can just swap the painted pieces out when he’s ready to give the dogs a new backdrop. 

The father and son pair observed more foot and bicycle traffic on the street beside the fence, which further inspired the dog-themed artwork to frame the hole. Burger’s trademark move of sticking his head through the window was made even better with the new art. 

Brian’s successful neighborhood project dates back a year ago when Burger was just a puppy who wouldn’t stop digging a hole in the ground by the fence. Brian cut a small hole in the fence to give him a window and distract him from digging. It worked and eventually led to a promising project that entertains and delights everyone in the neighborhood. Pictures of the dogs at the fence line have become extremely popular on social media too, as Brian started an Instagram account for the canine brothers @thedogfence.

It all started with a Paws poster modeled after the Jaws shark post. Burger and Ripley would stick their noses through the fence, surrounded by a deep rich blue color much like the shark-infested waters from the famous movie. It’s hard to resist the funny sight of the dogs saying hello, unaware of the artwork decorating the scene.

Many people also loved the recreation of Edvard Munch’s painting The Scream. The fresh take was appropriately titled The Bark. A Pacman painting was another big hit as Burger and Ripley posed for super cute photos showing them in the center of the game. Although this Fourth Of July was unlike any other due to the ongoing pandemic, the twist on the traditional Uncle Sam poster brought a smile to many faces. The dogs did their best to attract new friends to play fetch with the colorful creation. 

Burger is a funny and friendly pooch, a mix between a husky and a golden retriever, and he was adopted as a young puppy. He’s all about attention and seems to enjoy the backyard project, which is something the entire family works can get involved in. The traffic-stopping sight attracts both humans and their canine companions, who can’t help but take a closer look at the living action art.

The Stanley clan has no plans to slow down on the artwork anytime soon, as the project has become a wonderful activity they can all do together while celebrating their dogs and the positive difference they make in their lives. Plus, Burger and Ripley were adopted, and Brian reminds fans on social media to #adoptdontshop.

Narwhal The Unicorn Dog Is Teaching Kids That Being Different Makes You Magical

Mac’s Mission is a Missouri animal rescue group that takes in animals in all kinds of conditions, including those who have special needs. One day, a tiny puppy was rescued from the side of the road by this organization. At first he didn’t look much different from any other dog, but there was a serious difference. This puppy had a very small tail growing from its face, in between his eyes. Rochelle Steffen, the founder of the animal rescue organization, gave him a very special name- Narwhal the Magical Unicorn. She them took this puppy to a local vet to find out whether he needed treatment for this condition. He did have an injured foot from his adventures, but the secondary tail posed no threat to his health.

Then, pictures of little Narwhal were posted online, and the images immediately went viral. The cute puppy was not only adorable, he was different from any other puppy out there. Because Narwhal didn’t need his second tail removed, the rescue group chose to leave it as it was. As the little puppy has grown, so too has his secondary tail. Luckily, there are no internal structures for moving the tail, so it cannot wag and will not interfere with the structure of his head. As it has grown, his head has grown in perfect proportion to the tail and continues to pose no problems to the little dog.

So, did someone adopt this little puppy? While plenty wanted to, Rochelle kept the dog at the rescue organization as part of the organization’s own pack of dogs that live there permanently. And what to do with a dog this special? Let kids and dog lovers see him, of course! Narwhal being so different has made it possible to teach both kids and adults that being different and special is nothing to be worried about. Sometimes it is those differences that make us magical.

By using the story of this special puppy, more people have become aware of dogs that have special needs and how it’s nothing to be afraid of for pet owners. Sometimes, those special dogs can be as magical as a unicorn. Narwhal has been attending events in the area that raise awareness of special needs dogs and the need to find them adoptive families. He also goes to birthday parties for kids to teach them about being different. He has been going through training to perform as a hospital therapy dog. 

The future looks bright for Narwhal. He’s kept his internet fame and has been involved in a number of special projects. There will soon be a kids’ book that teaches kids about how magical it can be to be different. There are also plans to create a stuffed animal that looks like little Narwhal with the profits going to the rescue organization. Narwhal is now a healthy adult dog who is a cross between a dachshund and a beagle.

Pit Bull That Thinks He Is A Cat

I have a cat who actually likes to walk around the yard in a harness and leash. I also had a dog when I was younger who would rub up against us like a cat when he wanted us to give him pats. When most people in similar situations make the observation that their cat acts a bit like their dog or that their dog behaves more like a cat, it is usually said in a joking and half-kidding way. Dogs have very canine-like attributes and behaviors and characteristics we have become very familiar with.  Same with cats, they have very feline behaviors and traits we expect to see. Even when they act a bit like their counterparts in the household it usually is in one or two interesting but minor ways.

I’m not sure that the same could be said for Mako the pit bull, though. Mako is not a huge dob but as a pit, he is no little thing either.  So that makes his amazing cat-like behaviors all the more amazing and perplexing. You see, Mako is not content to be an oversize lap dog nor is he happy lazing the day away in a patch of sun. The cat-like trait Mako has taken upon himself to master is the art of climbing up onto the most ridiculous places imaginable.  This pit bull is a master climber and his owners have found him in a wide range of truly stunning places over the last couple of years.

Mako has been documented jumping onto table and countertops, which were some of the first places the fledgling daredevil climbed up to. But it was as if the family cat was challenging him to do more, and so he did! Mako has also been found balancing on the top edge of the recliner and walking along the back of the couch. This pooch has managed to climb on top of cupboards and cabinets in the storage room and even got on top of the refrigerator in the kitchen before! The family has documented his antics in photos and videos that have made their rounds on the internet several times over the years.

The push for Mako to take his natural jumping abilities and interest to a whole new height is believed to be because of his feline companions. With several cats in the house, Mako had plenty of opportunities to watch the cats and learn from them. His owners have said a number of times that it is like he believes he is a cat and that when he sees them jump and climb, he thinks to himself ‘well heck, I can do that to!’

I personally have never had a dog like Mako but I think that would be so cool. There would never be a dull moment and every day could be a game of “where will I find the dog today?”
