It appears that good news is scarce, but today, a few amusing animals are here to save the day with their headline-grabbing antics. True, we have been through a pandemic, but we now have coronavirus-sniffing puppies that could help limit the virus. Yes, we live in a world where natural disasters are at an all-time high, but we also live in a world where a rat was awarded a medal of honor for saving hundreds of humans. And let's not forget about the dog who bailed his owner out of jail. Do you want more? Here are this year's cutest critter stories.
Dog makes the most memorable moment at a wedding
Weddings are, of course, about love, but beyond that, they're all about taking images that capture the couple's special day. Freya made this decision when her human parents took her to their wedding. She was a charming usher, but during the ceremony, she did what dogs do: she defecated on the grass. As Freya was framed by the bridal party, the photographer recorded the action inadvertently mid-squat. People thought it was amusing and applauded her after she completed her business.
Falling for you
When a cat injures itself doing something once, it will usually self-correct and never do it again. However, this was not the case with Reddit user Asharet's childhood cat. He described that when he was a teenager, he had a farm cat who loved to climb up and sit on the roof. The problem was that the cat would roll over for a tummy rub whenever he saw someone. So walking near the house and seeing him roll right off the roof was a terrifyingly common occurrence. You'd think he'd learned after the first three times, but no. Despite this, he lived a long life.
Cat becomes a god
Clyde, a fluffy white cat, became famous on Twitter when his owner uploaded a photo of him. She had captured his reflection precisely in the glass while photographing clouds, giving the impression that the cloud-like cat had risen to his palace in the sky. She tweeted, "Took a photo of the cat gazing out the window and inadvertently transformed him into a deity." People appreciated Clyde's regal stance. Hyslop demonstrated that he has not been affected by the 1.5 million likes with a second photo of himself lying on his back in the sun.
Green with envy
Curiosity got the best of Reddit user ennmac's cat, resulting in him being covered in paint. a pet owner described how she once did a photoshoot while covered in green body paint. Her cat was watching her wash it off in the bathtub when he became too curious and too close and fell in the tub, which was full of watery green paint at the time. He freaked out, got completely soaked, and turned a bright green, and she had to call the vet to see how important it was for her to try to wash him off.
