Unless your favorite celebrity has a famous brother or sister, you often don’t think about their family life. Many celebrities keep their family lives very low key. Vin Diesel is one of these actors. This may be the reason that you don’t know that he has a twin brother.

Vin Diesel’s Career

When Vin Diesel starred in the 90’s film, Awakenings, he acting career really took off. When you think of Vin Diesel, you think of his role in The Fast and the Furious franchise or his role in the XXX films. He may have played in action and superhero movies, but he also did comedies. Who could ever forget him in The Pacifier, where protected and cared for a family?

Honesty

Vin Diesel is known for being hard onscreen; however, off-screen, he is a family man. He often takes to social media to let his fans know what is happening in his life with his family. He even documents his workouts from time to time.  Paul Walker, his best friend, passed away in a tragic car accident.  Vin Diesel is very open about how much he misses Paul.

Losing His Best Friend

When Paul died, Diesel took it very hard. He shot may television specials about his best friend and what a hole his loss has left in his life. More than once he has called Walker his brother. There was one dedication post that Diesel created for his friend that was overlooked by many. Not only was it a dedication to his friend, but it also opened up a window into a part of Diesel’s personal life that we don’t know about.

Vin’s Twin

In 2014, Diesel posted a photo of Paul Walker and another man on his Facebook. The caption read, “The Two Pauls.” It turned out that the other man in the picture was named Paul and he was Diesel’s twin brother. When you look at the photo, Walker and Diesel’s twin look more alike than Diesel, and his twin does. Most people didn’t know that he had a twin. His brother’s name is Paul Sinclair, and he doesn’t mind that people don’t know who his twin brother is.

The Quiet Brother

Paul Sinclair doesn’t have much of an online presence. He works in Hollywood, but his job is behind the scenes. He is a sound editor. He chooses to stay out of the spotlight. That is something that he leaves for his brother. Paul is a father and a husband, and it seems as though he has a great relationship with his twin. Paul and his twin brother have a great relationship. He admires Diesel just as much as Diesel admires him.

Why the Secret Relationship?

Many people wonder why Paul and Diesel’s family ties have not been mentioned often in the media. It is because Paul wants it that way. He enjoys living a quiet life with his wife and his family. The last thing that he wants is to be followed by the paparazzi, being fielded questions about what it is like to be the twin brother of one of the most popular actors in Hollywood today. While he has a very close relationship with his brother, he prefers to keep their relationship out of the media. The two are as close as two twin brothers could be, they just don’t feel the need to advertise their family ties.

If you never knew that Diesel had a twin brother, you aren’t alone. If you follow Diesel closely on social media, you will likely see photos of the two spending time together. The two may not look alike, but that doesn’t make them any less close.

A baby bear, tiger, and a lion found in a basement 12 years ago are now best friends

Wild animals try to stick to their natural habitat and they also tend to follow their natural social characteristics. For example, leopards are known to be very reclusive creatures and often prefer a solitary life. Bears and tigers are also not very social too.

In this fascinating story, a bear, a tiger, and a lion have grown up to become best buddies. In a video posted online, a 12-year-old Black Bear, named Baloo, walks over to his friend, Shere Khan, a Bengal Tiger, and cuddles with him as if they are brothers. Tigers don’t even get along with their kin. So this friendship between the bear and tiger is even beyond kinship. To make things even more unbelievable, they have another friend, named Leo. You guessed it right, Leo is a lion.

What might explain this unusual friendship is their common history. 12 years ago, when these three animals were babies, they were being kept in terrible conditions in a basement. Fortunately, they were recovered by the police and bought to Noah’s Ark Sanctuary in Locust Grove, GA. The three animals have cared for their entire life at the Sanctuary.

The staff at Noah’s Ark Sanctuary have never heard of such friendship between a big cat and a bear. They do share the same habitat, especially in the Fat East, but any encounters between them as most aggressive or they just ignore each other and keep out of the way of the other. They don’t walk up and cuddle each other.  The staff at the sanctuary does point out that out of these three, Shere Khan has kept a little bit of natural wild mannerism but he is still very friendly. When it is sleep time, the trio shares the same room and cuddle together. They were kept as pets in that basement, which was legally not allowed. The owner of the basement was a drug dealer. They were confiscated and bought the sanctuary. Since then the owner of the sanctuary has looked after these three.

Unfortunately, Leo has passed away, leaving his loved ones with wonderful memories of him. He was 15 years of age when he passed away. He had been feeling sick and during surgery, his doctor found 80% of his liver was damaged. He could not have survived in such a condition. The difficult decision to let him go had to be made so that he does not suffer. His end in the world was peaceful.

Leo’s best friends, Shere Khan and Baloo, were able to say a final goodbye to him. They have been doing all right since their best friend’s departure. The staff at the sanctuary keeps a close eye to check off any worrisome signs of depression or change in behavior. The staff believes these two already knew Leo was terminally ill long before the staff was able to find out.

Leo’s final resting place is located by the clubhouse at the sanctuary. Such compassion and bond in animals of different species are very rare. In the wild, they might have been foes, but at the sanctuary they were brothers. Their story is an example of when nurture overtakes nature. They grew up together and build a bond that went beyond the design of nature. Humans do not fully understand the communication or relationship dynamics of the animals. This story is an example of how wild animals can get along in the right environment.

Too Shallow for Swimming With Sharks

University of Florida student Stefani Luke loved the ocean. She lived to be on the water. She was given a surfboard when she was in high school, but growing up in Ft. Lauderdale didn’t offer her much opportunity to ride any exciting waves. Going to college in Gainesville, Florida would provide her with a chance to take weekend trips to the popular beach town, St. Augustine to check out some waves. 

One stormy Tuesday, Stefani and some friends heard the news about coastal swells reaching up to five feet. They loaded up their boards and began a caravan. There were 11 kids but only 8 surfboards. She was excited to finally have the chance to use her board on some real waves, but she was also very aware of sharks. She was a biology major, recently working as an intern at the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Most of her work there was done in a lab or in area rivers. The biggest risk at her job had been alligators. 

Stefani’s love of the ocean and interest in fisheries compelled her to stay abreast of shark activity along the east coast. She knew that in 2019, reports of shark attacks, either provoked or unprovoked, reached nearly 150. 

The kids arrived at the beach, ready for some refreshing water and salty air. Today was a day to enjoy a day out of school. They unloaded the boards from their roof racks. Stefani waxed her beloved board alongside her good friends. Since there were more kids there than boards, Stefani offered her board up to a friend to try first. She figured she’d just do a little body surfing to warm up her muscles before fully engaging on her board. 

The waves were slightly disappointing. The stories they’d heard about giant waves were exaggerated, topping out at maybe three feet. She swam into the surf and waited. She thought she was a good distance from the surfers with boards. The water was a little colder than expected, and she hadn’t brought her wet suit. She swam parallel to the shore for a bit, to warm up. She ended up swimming close to her friend who’d borrowed her board. She waited in the line up, just beyond the breaking point of the waves. She was ready to body surf and catch some waves. 

The waves were coming in sets of four. She took the first in a set. It picked her up and she swam with it. As she glided in toward the shore she saw the dark shadow of what she knew was a shark. Everyone knows that you don’t panic when you see a shark. You don’t thrash around in the water. You don’t show signs of distress that signal to a shark that you’re easy prey. She forgot all that. All Stefani could think was “I don’t want to get eaten by a shark today!” She swam for her life. She swam fast, and probably a little crazy. 

The realization of her frenzy made her calm down slightly. She dropped the panicky swimming. She stopped swimming to realize that she was only in about a foot of water! She felt very silly, probably looking like a fool to anyone who might’ve seen this spectacle. 

She stood in the water to see her friend that had borrowed her board. Her friend asked with excitement, “Did you see that shark?!” Stefani acknowledged that she had in fact seen it. Her friend offered her the board back. Stefani declined, “No thanks. I like my legs. I like walking”. It was at that moment that Stefani gave her board away. She was done surfing and never tried it again.

An Abandoned Puppy Finds His Forever Home Thousands of Miles Away

There are countless animals out there that are in need of families who are going to love them and take care of them. Sometimes, animals are born on the street and end up as strays. They struggle to find food and water as every day is just a struggle to stay alive. In other cases, animals might be the victims of abuse and are looking for owners who are going to show them love and compassion instead of cruelty. Those who welcome pets into their homes will agree with this sentiment. If there was enough room in everyone’s home to adopt a pet, most people would. This is the story of a dog that spent his life on the street until he was taken in by a family at the end of a very long and arduous journey. This simply shows what some animals are willing to endure in an effort to find love.

Several years ago, there was a golden retriever who has left to fend for himself on the streets of one of the biggest cities in the world, Istanbul. At the time, there was a trend unfolding in the country. Many families in the local area decided that a golden retriever was the best type of dog to have in the local area. Of course, like other fashion trends, this one started to fall by the wayside. Once families realized that having a golden retriever would not elevate them in the social stratosphere, they decided to dump the dog. This is how this golden retriever ended up on the streets. The story and trend are both absolutely heartbreaking. Nobody should ever kick their dog to the curb; however, this is what happened to this poor golden retriever.

Even worse, this golden retriever was just a puppy at the time. He had just turned one year old and was being asked to fend for himself. Furthermore, the golden retriever was born with some defects. He had an elbow joint that was not quite fully formed. This meant that one of his legs was crooked. This made it even more difficult for him to move around and survive on his own. It is easy to see how this golden retriever could have trouble finding food and water on the streets of one of the biggest cities in the world.

Because of the situation going on in Istanbul with so many dogs being left for dead on the streets, a local charity for dogs in Atlanta decided to step in. The organization got wind of what was happening and decided that enough was enough. They adopted dozens of dogs from the local shelters in Istanbul to try to alleviate some of the problems that were unfolding in this bustling city.

When the charity brought the dogs back to the states, there was a couple that was looking for a sibling for a dog they already had. This couple had a dog that only had one eye. Even though some people might not want a dog with a disability, this couple is trying to break the stigma. Therefore, they stepped right up and adopted this golden retriever who had a problem with his elbow and front leg. 

In this way, this golden retriever traveled thousands of miles across the ocean to find his forever home. For this family, it was love at first sight. To this day, they say the golden retriever fits right in with their family. Now, this golden retriever gets to live happily ever after with a family who lives him.

The Odd Pair

A piglet and a cat might seem like an odd pair, but the kitten named Sriracha and the little pig Batman have proved otherwise. The friendship and interactions of these two close friends are the most heartwarming thing you will ever see. Both animals lived at Rancho Relaxo – a non-profit rescue farm in Woodstown, New Jersey established by Caitlin Cimini.  They were more than just friends because Sriracha depended on Batman in a big way. 

Sriracha, a cute black kitten, suffers from a non-progressive and non-contagious neurological disorder known as feline cerebellar hypoplasia, causing walking and balance issues. There are seriously bad days when Sriracha has two seizures in a row and becomes a little “off”.  Feline cerebellar hypoplasia is caused by improper development of the parts of the cerebellum or exposure to infections, toxins, and nutritional deficiencies. It might be hard and sad to see the kitten shaking but, actually, such condition is absolutely painless. 

 When Sriracha was going through the bad period of her life, she found comfort and support from a two-week-old orphan rescued piglet. Caitlin Cimini says that Batman always felt when the kitten was about to experience a seizure. He rushed immediately to her to put his body on top of Sriracha’s and comfort his poor friend.  Caitlin wrote on her Instagram: “Sriracha found comfort in Batman. And Batman almost knew what he was doing for her. It was a beautiful thing to watch”.  The baby Batman did not leave his buddy alone. He cuddled up to Sriracha by keeping her company. Though the kitten cannot speak, she was definitely thankful for her little pink friend.  They got really attached to each other and became inseparable. 

Unfortunately, due to congenital problems, Batman passed away. Sriracha was devastated and brokenhearted by sobbing for a little pink buddy for days. However, fortunately, in an odd twist of fate, Caitlin soon rescued Batman’s bittersweet sibling from the auction and named him Dragonlord.  To everyone’s surprise, after Dragonlord warmed up, he started taking care of Sriracha even better than his brother Batman did. Dragonlord and Sriracha became very close best friends by spending a lot of time together. Just like Batman, Dragonlord comforts the kitten every time when she is experiencing a seizure. In return, Sriracha shows her love by grooming her supportive friend and showering him with kisses.  

Such a beautiful and unusual friendship of animals has captured the hearts of millions of fans around the world on social media. “That is why I do what I do” – says a founder of Rancho Relaxo on her Instagram. “This is the reason why my entire life is dedicated to helping animals. They are the most beautiful creatures on this planet”. So far, Caitlin and her husband have rescued already hundreds of animals, and they do not have an intention to stop.

Saint Bernard and Son Spoof Mom on Emergency

There is a saying that dogs are man’s best friend. In many ways, pets are a great way to teach Sean responsibility when they were growing up. In other cases, that’s can’t even pull pranks on their owners. This is exactly what happens when a mother got a call from her son.

A mom was surprised to get a panicked phone call from her son saying that you need to come home right away. When parents receive this phone call, they often think that their child has been injured or has fallen ill. At the phone call continued, this wasn’t quite what happened.

She listened to her son continue talking on the phone and realized that the dog had somehow gotten on the roof of the home. While most homeowners don’t even think about their roofs until there is a problem, this is probably not the type of problem the homeowner had in mind. The sun proceeded to tell her that the giant Saint Bernard, who weighs more than 100 pounds, had somehow climbed up to the roof.

At first, the mother thought this was some sort of prank. At the phone call continue, the details made it undeniable. Even if she didn’t quite believe it, she had no choice but to rush home and figure out what was going on. Indeed, when she got home, she could not believe her eyes. She didn’t think other people would believe her either. Therefore, she pulled out her phone and decided to film the entire incident. At the time, her biggest fear with the family die was going to jump from the roof of the house. This would lead to an absolute disaster.

She shared the video on social media. In the video, the dog can be seen standing on the slope of the roof. In this position, it is easy to see how the homeowner might have been afraid of the dog was going to jump from the roof. She shouts at the dog, in the process of figuring out what he’s doing up there. She says in a stern voice, like a mother to a child, that the dog needs to get off the roof.

As most pet owners will attest, pets don’t always do what they are told. In this case, her begging and commanding did not work. The St. Bernard stayed right where he was. He clearly had no intention of going anywhere quickly. Therefore, the homeowner did not have much of a choice. She needed to ask for help and call in the big guns.

She decided to pick up the phone and calling the local fire department. Eventually, a team of professionally trained firefighters came to the rescue of the dog. They deployed a ladder and leaned it up against the side of the house. Then, they climbed up to get the dog down. That is when the mystery was revealed. It was clear the dog had passed through a window. Then, the dog walked straight through the broken window out to the roof of the small house.

Because of the size of the dog, the firefighters decided that the easiest way to handle the situation was to push him back through the window from whence you came. Then, the dog is safe inside. To this day, the homeowner believes that the dog was mocking her in some way. She says that he was just having a good time hanging out on the roof. Of course, like most good pet owners, she would not trade her dog for anything in the world. She still loves him dearly.
