Earl Grey is a cat who means business and he is campaigning for better animal rights all over Canada. His platform statment says it all:

Earl Grey, leader of the Tuxedo Party of Canada, asks the question, "Who stands on guard for me?"

Animals in Canada are currently NOT afforded adequate protection under the law. Due to loopholes, outdated wording (from 1892), and inadequate laws, convictions of animal cruelty are unlikely. Action is needed to change the laws and protect animals; without legal protection they are defenceless against mistreatment.




Good luck on the campaign trail, Earl Grey.

This lucky penguin made the journey from the back of a truck, past cars and dangerous dogs into the arms of local Peruvian police. After an uncertain first confrontation he was taken back to the police station, fed fish and affectionately named Pingui. He is on his way to a penguin habitat in northern Peru where he will be safe and happy.

A brave volunteer went headfirst into a drain pipe filled with rushing water to rescue a kitten in danger. Safety precautions were taken to protect the volunteer, a makeshift dam was used to slow the amount of water in the storm drain and she was tied to a rope so that she could be saved if the rescue didn't go as planned. Luckily for the kitten, who has been named Stormy, everything went well. A firefighter helped Stormy recover by giving her a little oxygen mask that helped her breathe. She's now doing well in foster care and someday she'll be able to be adopted by a loving, permanent home. She looks like she's recovering quickly.

The panda team at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, D.C. was excited to greet their newest baby panda on the evening of August 22. They were surprised to see that a second cub was born around 10 P.M. that night. It's rare for giant pandas to have twins, in fact this is only the third time that a pair of panda cubs have been born in the United States. 

At the moment the zoo is working to alternate individual time with the panda mother for each cub to make sure she can devote enough attention to each of them. So far Mei Xiang has been adjusting to motherhood well, you can see her immediately picking up and cleaning her second cub in the video below.

He has become loved by visitors and coworkers alike but at around 18-years of age, he's ready to retire to a quit life in the country.

This criminal feline has made a habit out of stealing from his neighbors and stashing the goods in plain sight back home. His favorite objective? Shoes.

This dastardly villain is brazen enough to pose happily amongst his stolen trophies.

Just look at that fearless expression. This is the face of a ruthless evildoer who thinks he can never be stopped...and perhaps he's right.
