Waxed Floors Are Not a Cat's Best Friend

Cats are known for their athletic abilities, from high jumps to landing on their feet no matter the fall. But, it seems that their grace is foiled by slippery floors. This poor kitty was just trying to get back into this cage but the floors were so slippery, he couldn't get enough traction to actually make his target.

It sounds like the other kitties around him are cheering him on, but to no avail. Hopefully the human recording helped the kitty back into his cage!

Dog Knows Exactly What to Do When Her Owner has a Seizure

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Caitlin Jill Anders from thedodo.com)

A woman named Shannon was alerted by her alert dog, Poppy, that she was going to be having a seizure.

Typically, alert dogs like Poppy usually notify their humans about 10 to 20 minutes before the seizure occurs. It's not very often that we get to see these amazing dogs in action, however.

Poppy laid down next to Shannon to wait with her. As soon as Shannon showed any sign of erratic movement, Poppy became instantly alert. 

When Shannon began to seize, Poppy rolled her onto her side, which prevents the person seizing from choking on their own saliva or vomit.

From Instagram: Big and Little Dog Best Friends Reinvent Spooning

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Caitlin Jill Anders from thedodo.com)

Baby and dog best friends are often so adorable because the baby is tiny and the dog is, well, not so tiny, and it's just too cute. Huge and tiny friends are the best β€” which is why these pups are just too cute for their own good.

Riley and Killer are two dog best friends and siblings who are very different in size, but not so different in how much they love each other.

These two goofballs do everything together, and the way they spoon when they sleep is actually precious.

Dog Woken Up by Unexpected Kisses

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Solon Kelleher from thedodo.com)

There's nothing like waking up next to the one you love, especially when you're waking up to a kiss. 

A Weimeraner named Harlow and a dachshund named Indiana Thunderbolt shared one of those heavenly moments, and luckily for us, the whole exchange was captured in a 15-second Instagram post.

First, Indiana Thunderbolt simply opens her mouth, rubbing her lips against Harlow's. That's enough of a sweet sensation to wake Harlow.

This is the Tiniest Horse Ever and He Will Chase You DOWN!

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Ameena Schelling from thedodo.com)

This mini horse has barely seen the world β€” but he already likes what he sees.

A recent video shows the teeniest, tiniest miniature horse β€” only 3 days old β€” chasing after one of his carers, whom he's apparently decided is his new best friend. And it might just be the cutest thing in the history of the universe.

Wherever his new friend runs, the tiny horse follows. And when he finally catches him and get some well-deserved pets, he wags his little horse tail just like a puppy.

How could you run from this little guy? 

Of course, his protective mother β€” who appears to be named Grace β€” eventually steps in to end the playtime.

Dog's Priceless Reaction to Cancer Test Results Caught on Film

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Anna Swartz from thedodo.com)

When Lily the dog suddenly got very sick in May, the veterinarian diagnosed her with a tumor on her spleen. They could remove the tumor and save her life, the vets told her mom, Dani, but Lily likely had cancer ... in which case she wouldn't live more than a few months.

Basically they were telling Dani that the expensive surgery might not be worth it. But Dani and her husband went ahead and did it anyways. "We didn't want to give up," she explained on YouTube. "We emptied our savings account ... "

The surgery was successful β€” vets removed a 6-pound tumor from Lily's spleen. But the next step was finding out if it was, in fact, cancer, which would mean Lily didn't have much time to live.

Dani filmed the moment she revealed the results of the test to Lily, explaining things to her as the patient dog looked up at her expectantly.

"Lily, the doctor called ... they sent your tests in and I need you to sit down for this."

Even if Lily can't understand the actual words her mom is saying, she can definitely sense in her tone the gravity of the situation, which is why it's all the more exciting when Dani bursts out in cheers.

5 Times Animals Were Amazed By Music

As humans, almost all of us love music. From rock'n'roll to hip-hop, there's a genre for everyone. However, did you know that animals also love music? These five videos below show just how amped any species can get over a funky beat!

1. This farmer knows how to get his cows' attention: with some trombone music!

2. It's the same song from the first video, but it's sung (sort of) to this group of cows. Something about Lorde really seems to speak to herds of cows.

Real Life Bambi and Thumper Spotted in Colorado

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Ameena Schelling from thedodo.com)

Two of nature's most adorable residents came together recently and engaged in an enchanting playdate that looked like something out of a Disney movie.

A recent video taken at Colorado's YMCA of the Rockies shows an unusual reaction between a fawn and a wild rabbit. The young deer curiously approaches the little rabbit, sniffing him then jumping back playfully. The rabbit, in turn, makes a little leap of his own.

What follows is several minutes of curious nuzzling and incredible bouncy playfulness. Both the deer and the rabbit β€” who also appears to be a juvenile β€” leap into the air and bounce across the lawn, zooming back and forth as they get to know each other. 

While the little deer is certainly having fun, the rabbit looks rather annoyed and appears to be acting defensively β€” but he's curious enough to stand his ground instead of running away. In any case, the result is pure magic.

You can watch the remarkable full video below.
