This Lil fella seems to be in quite the rush! And with the haunting music from Jaws playing in the background, we can't help but feel a bit of anxiety rise up. 

What will happen when and if the sloth actually does catch us? We'll be doomed. No human can withstand that amount of cuteness crawling towards you! As Animalist Too writes in their description bio, "Just because they're slow doesn't make this chase any less thrilling!"

Very, very true. Enjoy this thrilling chase of sloths from the Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica

Wholesome "Hey Buddy Comics" Are Always A Delight

You all are in for a super delightful treat! It doesn't get more wholesome and adorable than "Hey Buddy Comics," and we've rounded up 25 comics from this past year that are not only wholesome but really uplifting. 

"Hey Buddy Comics," is created by the combined talented forces of the James, the writer, and an artist that goes by the initial "K." We had the chance to speak to James about the process of 'Hey Buddy Comics,' and how they uncover a plethora of wholesome ideas for comics.

"I have been writing short dialogues about my dog since he was a puppy. The intense affection I felt for this creature I could not communicate with inspired me to imagine the conversations we would have if I could. Recently I realized that the huge collection of stuff I had written might actually entertain other people. The problem was they were kind of boring to look at in text form, they needed to be brought to life, to have the same energy and verve as my actual dog," said James.

So, James teamed up with the artist "K" and "Hey Buddy Comics" was born! Get ready to have your heart flooded with some major aww's!

Hero Rat Awarded Medal Of Bravery For Sniffing Out Landmines

A new legend is born! Meet the hero from Cambodia who's got the whole world buzzing -- Magawa! And Magawa just so happens to be a giant African pouched rat. Magawa isn't just any rat, he was trained to sniff out landmines and has now been awarded British charity's top civilian award for animal bravery!

In the past seven years, Magawa has discovered a total of 39 landmines and 28 items of unexploded ordnance. People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) start began as a free vet clinic in 1917 and has been honoring heroic animals 1943. Magawa was awarded the PDSA's gold medal for his "lifesaving bravery and devotion," according to the charity.

Having cleared over 141,000 square meters of land (imagine 20 soccer fields), it is without a doubt that Magawa is worthy of this award! 

APOPO Chief Executive Christophe Cox had this to say about the heroic act, "it is big for the people in Cambodia, and all the people around the world who are suffering from landmines. The PDSA Gold Medal award brings the problem of landmines to global attention."

But why use rats to sniff out landmines? Turns out, rats are perfect for such a task! Their small size (and weight) allows them to walk across minefields without triggering any explosives. Before Magawa, this was a canine job. 

PDSA also happens to have a Dickin Medal for military service and the medal has since been awarded to 34 dogs, 32 pigeons, 4 horses, and one cat. However, Magawa is their rat to ever receive a PDSA award! 

Congratulations Magawa, thank you for your bravery and helping make this world a safer place for us all.

Every cat has its own personality, that's true. Some like their bellies rubbed, some don't, some rub up against your legs, other don't, but one thing that we've always wondered is if it really is true that all cats don't like having their paws touched. Well, this owner whose cats we've lost count of decided to test that theory.

Cutely enough, she found out that some of them are totally fine letting their paws be held. Others... need snack incentives. You can tell how much all of these cats love their owner looking at the trust they put in her though, and really, that's the most beautiful thing of all.
