This New Animal Hospital In London Is Designed To Minimizes Stress

This animal hospital design by Alma-nac is a new solution in the city of London for all-hour emergency care. The design of The London Animal Hospital (TLAH) boasts all of the regular services offered by a veterinary practice, along with space for surgeries, pets to be isolated, as well as machines and scanners. One of the most distinctive features of the space is the way in which it has been arranged to keep pets calm, specifically by keeping dogs and cats separate. The longstanding rivalry between dogs and cats is playfully referenced with furniture pieces that say "cats only please" and separate routes that lead to back rooms. Although visiting the vet can be a stressful experience for pets, TLAH incorporates areas for play into consultation rooms to encourage pets to stay at ease. Via: Trend Hunter

In London, They Build Tiny "Highways" To Make Hedgehog's Life Much Easier

There are close to a million hedgehogs who are roaming the streets, parks and gardens of London, seeking out wood and vegetation to take refuge in. Barnes Hedgehogs, a local animal activist group decided to transform the city into a more hospitable environment for hedgehogs by drilling tiny "hedgehog highways" through the walls of the city. The passages are just wide enough for the animals to climb through, making it easier for them to travel from one green space to the next. Carving hedgehog highways through the stone partitions and wooden fences bordering parks and gardens is one way Barnes Hedgehogs is making life in the big city a little easier for its most prickly residents. Big like from us!

Cats in London in The 1950’s (10 Photos)

Thurston Hopkins was one of Britain's greatest photojournalists and part of the golden age of reportage. Working for Picture Post he captured the humanity, spirit and social inequality and contradictions of life in 1950s Britain. One of the first essays by Hopkins published in Picture Post was his 'Cats of London' (Feb 1951 edition), almost certainly suggested by the many cats he met while walking around the streets of London on other assignments. The blitz had made many cats homeless, and these strays had often established themselves in the bombsites, living and breeding more or less wild on the scraps the could find and that friendly neighbors put out from them. Even cats who still enjoyed good homes would spend much of their time on the streets; the cat flap was as yet unknown and every cat owner still 'put the cat out' as part of the ritual of retiring for the night. City cats were still street cats first and home cats when it pleased them. Hopkins started to collect pictures of these cats on the street, attracting them with a little food, and it made an interesting if not profound story.

All of the Advertisements in a London Tube Station Were Just Replaced With Pictures of Cats and the Reason Why Is Fantastic

The Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (CATS) just replaced all of the adverts in a London tube station with pictures of cats. Why?
