If this story or photos don't make you smile, you are grumpy and need to go back to bed
After losing his parents, this 3 year old orangutan named Roscoe was so depressed he wouldn't eat and didn't respond to any medical treatments. The veterinarians thought he would surely die from sadness. The zoo keepers found an old sick dog on the grounds in the park at the zoo where the orangutan lived and took the dog to the animal treatment center. The dog arrived at the same time the orangutan was there being treated. The 2 lost souls met and have been inseparable ever since. The orangutan found a new reason to live and each always tries his best to be a good companion to his new found friend. They are together 24 hours a day in all their activities.
Their favorite activity is swimming together, but he is afraid of the water and needs help from his friend And of course, just like us, they need a shoulder to lean on:
Long Live Friendship!!!!!!! I don't know......some say life is too short, others say it is too long, but I know that nothing that we do makes sense if we don't touch the hearts of others.......while it lasts!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fabulous Monday!
If this story or none of the pictures make you smile, than you are grumpy and need to go back to bed. This is the story of Elvira the miracle cat and definitely an angel!
The above photo is of an adult cat named Elvira who came to the our shelter about three weeks ago. She was less than two weeks away from giving birth, A few days after arriving her breathing became labored so she was taken to the vet. At first the vet thought that she was about to give birth...until he found a lump in her throat that was obstructing her breathing. At first he feared the worse. The vet was worried that it was a tumor and that she would need to be euthanized. Needless to say we were all DEVASTATED! After further examination, the vet thought perhaps Elvira had an infection and that antibiotics might help. She had four full-term healthy kittens in her as determined by ultra-sound.
By the next morning, she was starting to breathe more easily!
About a week later Elvira gave birth to four healthy babies and was completely healthy herself. When the babies were almost a week old, a lady called in with a little white kitten she'd found in her yard that was only 2-3 days old. She bottle fed it for a day and then started checking at shelters to see if there were any momma cats that might accept this orphan. As you can see:
Elvira accepted the little whie kitten with open arms!!!
I so love happy endings!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a wonderful Monday.
