Too Cute Tuesday: Germany’s First Walrus Pup is Born


On June 15, an adorable, whiskered male walrus pup was born at Hamburg’s Hagenbeck Zoo. But this isn’t an ordinary walrus pup.

Why? Because he is the first and only walrus to be born in Germany. The zoo’s website states that this group of walruses (the pup’s mother and enclosure mates) came to them about a year ago from the Moscow Zoo to fulfill the dream of Tierpark Hagenbeck to host the only walrus breeding group in Germany. And their dreams have come true! This little guy doesn’t have a name yet, but it will be decided by zoo visitors.

The Importance of Foster Homes: Sir Stuffington's Story

Earlier today we were introduced to a very brave kitten named Sir Stuffington. Our little friend has been through the unimaginable in his short little life and is currently recuperating in a foster home in Oregon.

Sir Stuffington will be ready for adoption in a few months. On behalf of Animal Planet we'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to foster mom Blazer Schaffer for caring for Sir Stuffington until he is at a healthy and adoptable weight. We'd also like to thank all of the pet foster moms and dads out there. You are all an essential part of ensuring that all animals find happy and healty forever homes. Check out Sir Stuffington's Facebook page to follow his progress.

Too Cute Tuesday: Bashful Enjoys Some Donny Hathaway


So, do you all remember cute little Bashful from our first wonderful cast of the live kitten cam? Bashful-01-625x450

I'm sure you do. She was one of the cutest!

But I'm a little biased because I happened to adopt Bashful (now Etta) and Sleepy (now Otis). Taking them both home was perhaps the best decision I've made because they make life a lot more fun.

For example, here's Etta enjoying a little bit of Donny Hathaway on vinyl. It's good to see that she's got the same soul as her namesake (Etta James).
