Art Student Taught Her Pet Rat To Paint With His Feet

Amalie Markota Andersen has taught her pet rat, Darius, to do something quite extraordinary -- paint! Anderson herself is an animation and digital arts student and told The Insider that it only took Darius roughly 10 minutes to complete a masterpiece.

Darius used his feet to create his work and his painting have gone viral multiple times on Twitter and Tumblr. He's sold about 3 or 4 pieces. 

Unfortunately, the talented Darius passed away earlier in 2019. Anderson says her and Darius had a special bond and we're 100% sure of that.

Darius and his paintings have been going viral on the internet since this past Saturday, when pictures of him and his work were shared by a now-private account.

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Henry And Baloo!

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This weeks spotlight goes to Henry, the Colorado dog and Baloo, the Siamese-mix cat! 

It's no surprise for a dog to be adventurous, go on majestic hikes, and to thrive in the great wide open! However, what is surprising is that Henry doesn't go on these outdoor adventures alone. He is accompanied by his best friend -- Baloo.  Henry and Baloo's owners, Cynthia and Andre, named Baloo after the famous Jungle Book character due to his laid-back personality and adventurous spirit! They didn't know how he would react to their dog Henry when they first adopted Baloo from the shelter.

Turns out, they were pretty lucky. The two seem to absolutely adore each other. Just look at the stunning images below, if you don't believe us! 

You can follow Henry and Baloo's adventures on Instagram!

If you'd like your pet to be featured, reach out to us with some insight as to who you are and the story of your beloved pet!

Cats With The Rare Feline Depigmentation Known As Vitiligo

There are different types of depigmentation in felines; Leukoderma ("white skin"), leukotrichia ("white hair") or vitiligo, which leaves cats with a "snowflake" appearance. All the conditions are very rare and purely cosmetic, meaning the animals who have the rare condition aren't physically affected by it.

Vitiligo is one form of leukoderma. It usually causes loss of pigment on the face and feet, and this form of vitiligo has been linked to cats that derived from South-East Asian (Siamese, Burmese and related breeds).

Photographer Beautifully Captures The Purity of Doggo Maternity Shoots

Is there anything more darling than a maternity shoot? Sure there is! If your model just happens to be a loyal, pure of heart, good girl two-year-old Dachshund named Sugar! 

Sugar is expecting her first litter and who better to capture the moment than Washington-based photographer Laura Shockley? Laura Shockley specializes in maternity, as well as, newborn shoots. She made headlines last year due to her gasp-worthy shot of a newborn ecstatically outstretching his arms, as if thrilled to have finally arrived into this world.

Now, Shockley is sharing her newest photo-shoot via Facebook featuring a pregnant pup! "This little momma is going to grace us with some short legged puppers soon! I can not wait for the next milestone session for her, the grandmother (me) 'purchased' her the maternity/newborn package!," Laura wrote. 

Shockley told PopSugar that Sugar is, "getting close to the end of her pregnancy and we took her for a day filled with pup cups and peanut butter treats, [and] it ended with her maternity session. If people can feel special on their photo shoot days, so can Sugar!"

We are definitely on-board with that! 

Complete with images of Sugar rocking a flower crown and tulle, and surrounded by a field of flowers, here is Sugar's gorgeous and one-of-a-kind photo-shoot:
