Heartwarming Photographs Capture The Bond Between Homeless People & Their Pets

Its an unfortunately common sight to see homeless people with animals for companions. The unconditional love and affection that a feline or Kanine partner can give to someone facing terribly hard times can quite literally be a lifesaver. Photographer Norah Lveine addresses that in her latest series of images she titles “Lifelines”.

The Liflines project states: “Regardless of the reason for their situation, the homeless rely on their pets for many things—most importantly—companionship. Many homeless pet owners use what little resources they do have to provide care and sustenance to their animal; food, bedding, etc., because their love and reliance on their pet surpasses all other priorities in life, they have little left for their own material needs.

The mission of the Lifelines project is to depict the bond between people and their pets, and document a relationship that has existed for thousands of years across all walks of life. The project’s purpose is to share the images and unique lifestyle of the pets of the homeless with the community of Austin.”

Rescued Calf Gets New High-tech Prosthetics

“The 600-pound English Charolais calf known as Hero became what may be the nation’s only double-amputee calf with prosthetics on Wednesday when fitted for a new pair of high-tech devices attached to its back legs. It’s the latest step in a year-long effort that has taken Hero’s caretaker, Kitty Martin and the animal from Virginia, where she rescued it last year from an Augusta County farm where it succumbed to frostbite that claimed its hooves, to Texas. Animal surgeons at Texas A&M University treated Hero for several months and affixed the initial prosthetics that the calf now had outgrown.

“This is our first cow”, Erin O’Brien, an orthotist and prosthetist for Hanger Inc., an Austin-based national firm that makes prosthetic limbs. She was among a team of about eight people working on the project for about two weeks. “We did a lot of study of photos and video of cows just regular walking to see what it looks like and see if we can mimic that biomechanically”, O’Brien said. “It’s unusual, yes, but an opportunity”.

Martin figures she has spent nearly $40,000 to save the calf. “I don’t know how to explain it”, she said. “I’m an animal rescuer. And he had everything against him”. Hero’s hooves are custom made of urethane and titanium, the connecting components are titanium and carbon fiber and the sockets that attach to his legs are carbon fiber and acrylic resin. Martin and O’Brien declined to discuss the cost, but estimated that similar devices for humans go for between $4,000 and $8,000 apiece.

Martin, 53, a former veterinary technician and retired truck driver originally from Dalhart, in the Texas Panhandle, is moving with her husband from Greenville, Virginia, to Cameron in Central Texas. She’s hoping Hero, who could grow to 1,500 pounds, can be a therapy animal for wounded veterans and special needs children. “It makes my day”, Martin said. “He’s got a very bright future right now”. – Associated Press

Living with Tigers

With six-inch fangs and weighing in at 600lb, Saber and Janda are no ­ordinary house cats. Yet these huge Bengal tigers live in Janice Haley’s suburban garden and are treated like ordinary pets. They are fed by hand, get strokes and cuddles, and white male Saber goes to sleep sucking on her finger. Janice’s life changed 20 years ago when she spotted an advert for a tiger training course in her local paper – and two years later arrived home with her first cub. Then in 2002 she bought Janda, who is now 12.

After her first tiger died in 2007 little Saber – who was only two weeks old at the time – was introduced to the family. Janice, who lives in ­Davenport, Florida, says: “They pretty much look at me as being their mother. As far as I’m concerned they are my big four-legged furry kids. We have a very special bond – they rub my face and let me kiss them on the nose, we can cuddle with them and hug them”. After a full day of play and feeding, Janice lies down with the tigers to help them go to sleep. She says: “I don’t know of too many places where you can cuddle with a full grown tiger and we’ve been doing this with them for years”. Janice and husband David work around the clock to care for the tigers and spend all of their income on food and care.

Meet Millie – The Adorable Adopted Cat Is The Most Adventurous Feline Climbing Buddy

1160 Meet Millie   The Adorable Adopted Cat Is The Most Adventurous Feline Climbing Buddy
Meet Millie. Millie is one of the worlds most awesome cats. Unlike most cats she is one of the most brave and adventourous pets ever. So much so that she loves going on climbing adventures with her owner Craig.

Craig said: “She literally loves to climb things… if there’s high-ground she’ll seek it out,” Armstrong said in an interview with Bored Panda. He had nothing but praise for the tenacious little athlete: “Generally she does best on slabby routes where she can scramble from ledge to ledge. She’s an incredible athlete but steep juggy routes just aren’t her thing. When bouldering, though, she’s done some pretty amazing gaps and dynos.” and “Millie has all the qualities a good climbing partner should have. She never complains, no matter how bad it gets. She takes big risks and doesn’t complain when they don’t pan out.”

‘Biggest Dinosaur Ever’ Discovered

It’s not exactly small at 30feet long (9 meters), but you might want to call this newlyidentified dinosaur the littlest giant.

Scientists in Argentina on Wednesday announced the discoveryof the fossilized remains of a unique member of the famous long-necked, plant-munching dinosaurs known as sauropods, the largest land creatures in Earth’s history. The dinosaur, named Leinkupal laticauda, may be the smallestof the sauropod family called diplodocids, typified by thewell-known Diplodocus, which lived in North America, they said. It also is the first of them found in South America. Itlived about 140 million years ago, millions of years afterscientists had previously thought diplodocids had disappeared, according to Argentine paleontologist Pablo Gallina, one of theresearchers.
