Jenny Jinya's New Comic About A Duckling

Oh, Jenny Jinya. You've done it again. We are just a sobbing mess after reading your comics. 

Jenny Jinya, artist behind the popular "Good Boy" and "Black Cat" comics, has recently shared her newest comic. 

And yes, it's just as heartbreaking as the previous ones. 

All of her comics, as devastating as they may be, are in hopes to spread awareness and send a message to the world. 

For example, her previous comic was created in order to shed light on some real problems -- this time, the victim being birds and culprit? Plastic.

Check out her Instagram or Twitter for further updates!

Rescued Koalas Named After Fallen Firefighters During Australia's Wildfire

Both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. 

Three Snowy Mountain Koalas, who were rescued from the Australia wildfire crisis, have been named after American firefighters who were tragically killed in the region. 

Two Thumbs Wildlife Trust Koala Sanctuary have named the koalas, and the trio are now in the temporary care of Australian National University (ANU).

Dr Karen Ford, an ANU researcher and who is running the makeshift hospital at ANU, said in a university statement, "We have 11 koalas at ANU that have come in from the various fire grounds in the region.They just keep arriving. There is nowhere else that has the facilities to hold these animals or this many at the moment."

Ford also mentioned that a couple of the koalas are being treated for burns, while the others are "quite skinny" from malnutrition, due to their habitats being completely burnt. 

Koalas are known to breed so slowly that it could take 100 years for the population to rebuild — so saving just one is crucial. That is why the koalas have been a central focus of relief efforts as the blaze spreads across the region.

Popular Artist Reveals New Comic About Seabirds And Plastic Consumption

Jenny-Jinya is at it again! Breaking hearts and punching our guts -- right in the feels. 

You may recall her popular comic "Good Boy" or the "Black Cat," both devastating illustrations in which death welcomes these poor, defenseless animals whose deaths are related to mankind heartlessness or negligence. 

The artist is creating these stories to shed light on some real problems -- this time, the victim being birds and culprit? Plastic.

Plastic has been linked to a major decline of seabird populations, 67% decline between 1950 and 2010. 

Here's to hoping that this comic opens more eyes to the real problems at hand:

Devastated Women Forced To Surrender Her Fur-Babies To Shelter Leaves Heartbreaking Note

This story is a tear-jerker, make sure you have that tissue box near and ready! The owner of two beautiful 16-year-old Birman cats was forced to accept the fact that she will be moving into a nursing home and would not be able to bring her beloved cats with her. The most difficult part of making this decision was because she was worried about her loves and to make matters worse, her family was unable, and unwilling, to take the cats in. She was left with one choice, return them to the shelter.
