Members of the Monte Adone Centre for Conservation and Research of Exotic and Wild Fauna rescued a wounded, malnourished wolf from the freezing cold waters of the Limentra in the Italian province of Bologna. They found the wolf, given the name Navarre, partially paralyzed and in an extreme state of hypothermia.

They later learned that Navarre had been shot multiple times with lead pellets, but fortunately these bullets caused no major damage to the wolf's internal organs.

The Centre says that Navarre is beginning to heal and that "day after day [he] demonstrates a strong temperament and an increasing desire to live."

When Amy Jung visited the Door County Humane Society, she wasn't expecting to go home with two kitties. But things don't always go according to plan, and Jung made a decision to adopt two cats, one called Pudding and the other called Whimsy.

Later that night, Jung experienced a seizure while sleeping. Pudding came to her rescue by jumping onto her chest and batting at her face.

"Anything he could to pull me out of it (the seizure)," she said.

With Pudding's assistance, Jung woke up. The convulsions stopped long enough for her to call out to her son, Ethan, for help. When Ethan did not respond, Pudding ran to his room and woke him.

Jung believes Pudding saved her life.

"If something or someone hadn't pulled me out of that, I wouldn't be here," she said.

Three cheers for Pudding!
