Sometimes extraordinary things happen in life that just need to be shared. This is one of them.
Jupiter the lion
My aunt just sent this, and I have to say it is one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen. The sheer gratitude (not to mention love) you can actually see in this creature’s face is remarkable.
I found this one on youtube too:
“So these two people raised this lion cub who they named Christian, and sadly he got too big for them to take care of so they decided to release him to live as a wild lion. Well, in this footage, a year has passed and it looks like Christian’s adapted to living with a pride of lions when his old friends come back to visit him. Watch closely and you can see the look of pure disbelief that dawns on his muzzle- it’s awesome. ^_^ Next thing you know, we have a heart warming reunion. Not long after, members of Christian’s pride approach and even they seem to accept Christian’s human friends.”
Warm fuzzies all around.
A Cricket in the Court of Akbar
I came across this trailer months ago on youtube, and it’s stuck with me ever since. What an amazing story! If you’re equally impressed, go here to request the film in your area.
when to say enough’s enough.
I often joke that there’s an invisible sign in front of my house blinking “we feed” because even the neighborhood opossums and raccoons visit regularly. And people tease us about how many pets we have – a practical zoo as far as some are concerned – but even we have our limit. I mean, C’MON.
And then this from today’s Inquirer. I started cracking up when I read the line: “Neighbors, possibly from the other hoarding homes, came to yell at the PSPCA agents yesterday.” Damn, if I had a house like that next to me I’d be cheering when they came. Those poor animals. Can you imagine the SMELL???
