Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Willow, The Beautiful Cat

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to @willowthebeautifulcat!

Willow came into Lori's life unexpectedly. Lori is a pre-kindergarten teacher who works with children with special needs, and one day two of her students made a discovery, a tiny kitten, all alone, outside the medical foster home.

Lori was walking to her car when she noticed the stray kitten had been following her, then she noticed her unique face. As Lori describes it on her Instagram, this kitten was "born with a fuzzy heart-shaped nose."

Lori took the poor flea-ridden kitten to the vet, "The vet said she had a chromosomal abnormality like Down syndrome," Lori explained to MeowAF. "She said if I took her to a shelter they'd kill her because she wasn't 'pretty enough.' "

Lori decided to adopt her and named her Willow, after the street where they first met.

Horse Was Rescued After Being Trapped In Ice For Four Hours

Natalia Teplova, a horse owner in Edmonton, Canada, noticed one of her horses was missing when she called for them on Saturday morning. The missing horse, Lexi, didn't show up with the other horses.

"We went calling for the horses and usually they come up. This time, the other horses came up but she wasn't there," Teplova told CTV News.

As any concerned animal owner would do, Natalia and her husband began a small search party and set out to scour the area around their property, and find Lexi. They searched and searched and nearly decided to give up looking for Lexi that is until Natalia's husband horse he had been riding called out, and Lexi responded. 

"Then he called again and she responded again, and I started running," Teplova said. They found Lexi have been trapped, full submerged in ice-cold water. "Her head was sticking out above the ice. She was submerged all the way to her withers—her shoulders. Her front feet were out. She was barely holding up there."

Teplova called 911 for assistance, and she and others slid ropes around Lexi's body to prevent her from sinking any further. And just to give some clarity as to just how freezing this water was, Teplova added, "I put my hands in just to get the ropes around, in the water, and within seconds, my hand went numb. So that was very, very cold."

Together with the firefighting units, they were about to successfully pull out Lexi -- along with a bobcat! 

It was estimated that Lexi had been trapped in the ice water for at least six hours.

Woman Cares For Abandoned Kitten, Turns Out To Be A Baby Puma Jaguarundi

Florencia Lobo, and her brother, came across what appeared to be two kittens next to a dead adult cat near Santa Rosa de Leales, in Tucuman province, Argentina. 

The siblings decided to take the two kittens home with them, in order to give them the best chance at survival. Sadly, one of the kittens, a female, was simply too weak and didn't survive. The other kitten, a male, was seemingly stronger and was in good health. Lobo named him Tito. At the two-month mark, Lobo decided to bring Tito into the vet for a routine check-up.

Turns out, the cat she's been snuggling up to for that past two months was no ordinary cat. 

In an interview with Rueters, Florencia Lobo said, "We thought that it was an abandoned cat who had given birth. The vet didn't know what it was but said it was not a normal cat and gave me the number of the reserve." 

Lobo contacted the Horco Molle nature reserve, who then confirmed that her kitten she's been nursing was in fact a Puma Jaguarundi. Puma jaguarundi is a small wildcat native to American territories from Arizona to Argentina. 

Tito is now being cared for at the reserve and will be returned to his natural habitat when fully prepared to make the transition.

This guy decorated a tree with chicken drumsticks for the cats. They got into very funny positions while trying to eat the drumsticks. It's been a fun activity involving climbing, jumping, falling down and some funny growling :)

Facts About The Gorgeous Murder Floofs Known As Tigers

Let's list some of the reasons as to why we're so obessed with tigers, shall we?

1. Aladdin. You cannot tell us that growing up with Aladdin, you didn't want a Rajah of your own, as a pet. You can try to tell us but we won't believe you. 

2. They're gorgeous 

3. Intelligent 

4. Extremely badass. Like, extremely. 

5. Did we mention gorgeous? Well, let's mention that one again. 

Tigers have been through a lot, in history, and it's important to know that these animals are sadly endangered. If you love tigers as much as us, and want to help out in anyways you can, WWF has an 'adopt a tiger' program, in which you can make an symbolic adoption.
