Bird Lost in Box Laughs About it Like a Maniac

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by caitlinnjill from thedodo.com)

It's great when we can have a sense of humor about weird situations — and this bird definitely does. A curious bird got a little lost while trying to fully explore an exciting box, but that certainly didn't stop him from having a good time.

In fact, he found it to be pretty much the funniest thing in the entire world.

This bird absolutely has the right outlook on life. It seems like the joke's on us, because this guy and other talking birds seem to know something we don't about great life is.

Now if only we could see what was so funny. Maybe this bird found the next door to Narnia and he's laughing with all his new found power? I guess we'll never truly know.

Who knew the word “catfishing” could take on a literal meaning?

It's all thanks to Jason Frost and Brandon Key, who went on what could be the CUTEST FISHING TRIP EVAH on the Warrior River in Alabama. It seems the two set out to reel in fish, but what they caught instead was not one, but TWO kittens.

“Is this not the craziest thing y’all have ever seen?” one of them said, taking the words right out of our mouths.

Luckily she had her sister — an attentive husky, Lilo, — for support.

The kitten seemed a little terrified at first while the doctors gave her a quick checkup.

Dodo Circular

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

This little bird has a whole lot of love to give — and most of it is for his stuffed bunny. Marnie was celebrating his birthday, and his family got him EXACTLY what he wanted: a bunch of stuffed bunnies.

Lots of animals have unusual best friends, but this is definitely a first.

Why this cute little guy loves bunnies so much is a mystery, but he has the SWEETEST way of talking to them, that's for sure.

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!

Swan Couple Separated by Sickness has Sweetest Reunion

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Sarah V Schweig from thedodo.com)

They're the kind of couple that would finish each other's sentences — if they spoke in sentences.

But when one swan got sick, he was separated from his love.

Saddled with a severe infection, the swan had to leave the Netherlands canal the pair calls home to be treated. For probably the first time since they chose each other 10 years ago, the perfectly matched couple was torn apart.

A beautiful video making the internet rounds among animal lovers everywhere shows the moment when the recovered swan returns to his love.

Dog Nanny Helps Stray Kittens Feel Loved and Protected

Dodo Circular

(Guest post by Ben Kerns from thedodo.com)

Ten years after surviving the devastating onslaught of Hurricane Katrina, Boots the dog is alive and well and still helping out hopeful kittens at the Arizona Humane Society (AHS).

Boots, a chow/shepherd mix who was rescued by AHS emergency animal medical technicians a decade ago, has been hard at work paying it forward for dozens of kittens through AHS's kitten nursery. The vivacious little pup was one of nearly 300 animals retrieved in New Orleans and brought back to Arizona for treatment. After making a full recovery, he was adopted by one of the volunteers who helped rescue him. 

We previously reported on Boots's escapades in comforting these little guys and helping them acclimate to their new surroundings while also providing them with an important outlet for socialization. The Dodo is happy to say that on the eve of his anniversary of survival, he's still hard at work being a buddy for his feline friends.

"Boots is amazing!" AHS's public relations manager Bretta Nelson told The Dodo. "He puts on his kitten nanny vest and comes every Wednesday to volunteer in the Arizona Humane Society's kitten nursery."

The kitten nursery was created to fill a critical need in the social development of the kittens who come into the care of the shelter. Studies have shown that there's a brief period in the early weeks of a kitten's life where social interactions can determine how he'll act toward others the rest of his days.
