Animal of the Day: Octopus Tries to Escape Seattle Aquarium

Favorite
- -

An octopus recently tried and failed to make a break for it at the Seattle Aquarium.

The 8-legged beast climbed up his tank and nearly made it over the edge before a member of the staff thwarted his plans.

He was probably just hungry and headed for the crab tank. Or he was jealous of some his cellmates who were recently granted their freedom.

A few weeks ago, the aquarium successfully mated Franklin and Hazel who met on an octopus “blind date” before releasing them back into the wild.

Here’s video footage of the two being set free below a pier.

We have some news from The Seattle Humane Society regarding some of the early positive results of our National Cat Day kitten delivery event.

9 of the kittens that cruised the streets of Seattle in style have been placed on hold and are waiting to go to their forever homes. An additional 13 kittens were adopted from the Seattle Humane Society during the event. The staff at the shelter were ecstatic to announce that this was a very impressive Tuesday!

Thank you to everyone who adopted, and congratulations on welcoming a tiny, fuzzy, meowing best friend into your home. Let's all work to keep this awareness going!

We will continue to post updates to our blog as we receive more positive news from the other shelters we collaborated with.
