Fearless Cats: Cats Standing Up Against Bears, Owls And Snakes

Though scaredy-cat is a truly appropriate term for real cats since we know cats are scared of basically everything - from random noises to unexpected cucumbers - when push comes to shove, cats are some of the most fearless, unbothered animals that exist. You shouldn't be offended, it's not just you poking them that they're aloof to, that trait of indifference applies to everyone

To prove that once and for all, we have compiled a list of some of our favorite cats standing up to other animals that you would probably not expect them to. An owl? Not a problem. A huge bear? Child's play. A king cobra? Pssh, not in this cat's household.

Although… with all this said, personally, we do not recommend counting on your cat to save you from a burglar.

Pictures of Mountain Goats Defying Gravity

Mountain goats, or cliff-climbing goats, are actually not real goats! They are part of the antelope family.

Goat-antelopes.

They have mastered the art of climbing near-vertical slopes all in order to protect themselves from both animal and human predators. 

They are said to be an animal of high intelligence and quite alien-y..., due to their out-of-this-world defying gravity skills.

Adorable Two-Headed Goat was Born In a Wisconsin Farm

Nueske Farm in Wisconsin is a small local farm who is not used to too much buzz or news coverage.

But April 5th was a very special day on the farm as one of its goats gave birth to a two-headed baby: "Had our first two-headed baby boy today! He needed some help coming out after his brother that was perfectly normal," the farm wrote on Facebook at the time. "The mom is doing good, we brought him home to give him some extra attention and care. Hope he lives!"

The adorable Janus, named after the two-faced Roman god of beginnings and transitions, became an online sensation ever since and captured the hearts of hundreds of people who check in on him every day on the farm's Facebook page.

"I've heard of two-headed cows, and lizards, but not a goat," the farm owner told Fox 11 News. "There are four eyes, and two mouths, but they weren't sure if the middle eyes worked. But they were positive about the outside eyes working. Aside from some physical therapy sessions to help Janus learn how to walk and hold his two heads up, he's a healthy baby goat. He's a normal goat. We just have to help him. We try to help him as much as we can, and give him a break when he gets tired," she said. "Hopefully he can walk in a month. That would be good. I think that would be our goal."

With all the buzz, the farm even created a T-shirt featuring a photo of Janus and the words "Dare to be different."

We're totally in love!

Funny Thread About Herd Of Goats Having a Midnight Feast In an Empty UK Pub During Lockdown

Manchester Evening News' @AndrewStuart saw a herd of goats overrunning the township of Llandudno in the north of Wales.  

He was worried that he had gotten the goats arrested after spotting them having a midnight feast from a pub window  

Little did Andrew know, that night was just the beginning for these wild goats. 


Herd Of Goats Were Having a Midnight Feast In an Empty UK Pub During Lockdown | tweet by Andrew Stuart @AndrewStuart They weren’t moving from their midnight feast. And they were probably going to run riot on the town, what with nobody being about due to the lockdown. I also wasn’t sure if they were keeping the required 2m apart.

With over 13,000 retweets and 43,000 likes over the span of a few days, Twitter is having a mini-meltdown due to this mind-boggling optical illusion of a photo, posted by Twitter user @dancingfool75.

What do you see when first seeing the pic? Many users claimed to see some sort of evil horse-pig hybrid monster. Others saw a deformed or possessed goat.

We're not going to lie, took us awhile to figure out what it was we were staring at. 

Thankfully, someone shared the answer with users.

This week, two young Rocky Mountain goats have been introduced to their new home in Oregon Zoo and simply can't contain their bouncy, fluffy selves. The mountain goats are 5-month-olds — a male named Murphy and a female named Lena. Murphy and Lena are joining some adult goats Sassy and Montane in the rocky Cascade Crest habitat near the zoo's main entrance. 

Amy Cutting, who oversees the zoo's Great Northwest area had this to say, "We are so happy to welcome these kids into the herd. They started scampering around their new habitat right away, and soon enough Sassy and Montane will be showing them the ropes."  

Even though the young goats are very young, that haven't stopped them from mastering the art of hopping from rock to rock! 

Cutting continues to talk about these goat kids, "These kids came from Olympic National Park, so we're especially grateful we can provide a home for them here. Mountain goats are a non-native species in those mountains, and it's critical for that unique ecosystem that they be removed"  

All we can say after watching these adorable bouncy kids run around... man, we wish we had that energy.

Goats Are Able To Understand Human Facial Expressions

According to a recent study, goats are more intelligent than people previously thought. Goats have the ability to understand human expressions. They can tell the difference between unhappy faces and smiling ones and are attracted to the latter. 

Pretty wild, huh? 

How was the study conducted, you might ask. Researchers went to a goat sanctuary, and they showed goats a pair of photos — one with a happy face and the other with an angry expression. They were surprised to find that ALL the goats were drawn to the happy face. 

Honestly, the fact that Goats like you more when you're happy sounds like a good enough reason to smile.
