Animals of the Internet
The viral pets that make us squeal, aww, and cry. Making your newsfeed cuter each and every day.
When thinking of wild animals, the domestic house cat might be pretty far down on your list. This is our cat, Confetti. She has a respiratory condition that prevents her from exploring the outdoors without tight supervision. Smallest of her litter, loud breathing, and in need of constant support, she is the picture of domestication.
She filled people with happiness
When I was in college, I had friends who lived in a little apartment less than half a mile from my dorm. They had four cats, and aside from Basil, who was not your typical cat, I didn't particularly care. Growing up, I'd never had a cat because of my mom's allergies. I don't understand cats. I'm always left asking, "What do you want from me?"

Learn to Accept Yourself by Making Space for Others
As a child, Kari searched out kids who needed friends. She sat by the girl who ate alone at the lunch table. She was the girl who carried home strays, accepted others, people and animals, without limitations. Each time she opened her heart to give love, love was returned.

The Ever Winking Cat
Meet Obi-Wan, the ever-winking cat. Obi came to us through our neighbor, who rescues and fosters cats from all over Oahu. He came to us with the name Bokeh, but this name was weird to pronounce and we already had a dog named Yoda, so it seemed fitting to give him a good old-fashioned Jedi name. Obi was a rescued kitten who had lost his right eye and is completely blind in his left eye. We aren’t sure what caused him to lose his eye or eyesight, and we have never had a blind cat or any animal, but watching him learn to navigate with sound and intuition has been pretty cool. My husband says, "The Force is strong with this one," whatever that means.

From dwarf to giant: the rabbit that fooled us

The Blind Puppy That Saw Right Through Me
Working in a veterinary hospital means either having such a slow day that you’re detailing kennels and reorganizing cabinets, or so busy you skip lunch and suddenly it’s midnight - there’s no in between. On this particular day, when I noticed a persistent whining noise coming from a kennel in the hospitalization area, it was the latter. It’s literally my job to keep track of everything going on with any patients in the hospital, so I quickly investigated the source of this noise and found a tiny culprit was causing the ear-numbing sound.
