Cat With Rare Condition Finally Finds Furever Home And We're Over The Moon In Love

Meet Toby, the 6-year-old handsome cat who looks wise beyond his years, and who has feline cutaneous asthenia (FCA), also known as Ehlers Danlos syndrome in humans. Which means that his body doesn't produce collagen properly, resulting in loose skin. This also means that his skin is very fragile, easily bruised and cut.

17 Hypnotically Colorful And Ridiculously Good Looking Snakes

If you ever were to see one of these snakes in real life, the first instinct would probably be to run away -- and quickly. But if you stopped for a moment longer, you could appreciate just how magnificent their coloring can be. Some of these snakes straight-up just look like dragons. Especially bush vipers that have dragon-like scales and a dragon-shaped head.

Snakes are some of the most misunderstood creatures despite there being lots of snake facts and information available. People seem to have a natural fear and avoidance of snakes, even though some, like the zombie snake, are just big goofy nope-ropes that won't even hurt anyone. 

Snakes in general are fairly common all over the world, as it is believed snakes evolved from burrowing lizards, which were already world-wide. Some snakes are extremely rare, and seeing them is a real treat for enthusiasts. Just be sure to keep a safe distance, and make sure to do that funny dance everyone does if you touch the snake's skin and it grosses you out.

Hundreds Of Whale Sightings Reported Of The Coast Off NYC Due To Cleaner Waters

Finally some good news! In 2010 there were a total of 5 whale sightings off the coast of NYC. That's right, five. Last year, the number of whales spotted was a staggering 272! That is a 540% increase in just 8 years! And almost all of the whales spotted have been humpbacks! This is such a wonderful triumph. And we have environmental policies such as the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act to thank for that. 

Paul Sieswerda, once a curator at the New York Aquarium for over 20 years before starting Gotham Whale, says lessening the pollution in the Hudson River has also played a large part in this whale restoration. According to Pew Charitable Trust's Mid-Atlantic Conservation Project, the most important fish in the sea is the fish Menhaden - due to how many other sea animals eat them (including the humpback whale). And the Menhaden are attracted to tiny green algae, which the cleaner water at the Hudson river was able to provide. 

Sieswerda had this to say about the majestic giants of the sea, "The sheer size alone is incredible. They're like buses, and to think that's a living animal and to think that has the power and grace to completely jump out of the water when they breach is a spectacle that I think is unique to the animal kingdom."

Wildlife Photographer Photographs A Mouse Rescued From A Cat's Mouth (17 Beautiful Pics)

Meet Hannah Assil, wildlife photographer extraordinaire! As a biologists daughter, her path was clear, she was a bird and wildlife addict from the very start. And while her main focus is on birds, she couldn't help taking some pics of little Fridolin! Hannah gave a little insight to Fridolin's back story, "Fridolin didn't have the start a little mouse could wish for. Before he was even able to open his eyes, he and his mother found themselves in the mouth of a cat." And unfortunately, the mom didn't survive, but as luck would have it, little Fridolin was dropped by the cat and scooped up by a kid who witnessed the act. Thanks to that small act of kindness, Hannah Assil continues, "Fridolin grew fast and made the best of his second chance at life."

"I want people to focus on the beauty of our world in all of its aspects. Especially in times like these, where nature gets destroyed and extinctions of biological species happens, it's important to evoke the passion for nature in the hearts of humans," she told ICanHasCheezburger and some good solid advice, "Be like Fridolin: Enjoy the little things in life and take some time to smell the flowers."

If you're interested in learning more about Hannah Assil or want to purchase any prints, all info can be found on her website (it is in German but that's what 'Google Translate' is for)! Or follow her on Instagram and/or Facebook.

Thank you, Hannah, for sharing your art with the world! Hannah was able to take photos of little Fridolin twice, and the results were pure magic. See the beautiful photos below:
