Well, look what the cat dragged in... Sorry, we had to.

Honestly, we were worried for a moment in the beginning there but it turns out the duck is completely fine so we were able to exhale that "phew" we were holding in. 

Meet naughty cat Slippers, hunter extraordinaire! Except, not really, not that we mind!

This is an incredible video where Pall Sigurdsson, and others, spent an entire dive (and most of their air supply) saving an octopus who decided to make a home within a plastic cup, which was bound to result in a cruel fate. 

Thankfully, their dive wasn't a waste as they were able to find a suitable and saver living situation for the little octopus!

Dog With Trust Issues Gets A 'Boudoir Bedroom' Made For Him

Due to some recent information, it turns out ICH got this story wrong previously, and we are very sorry for the misinformation that has been spread! 

Now, let's get the facts straight and bring this story the justice it deserves! 

Meet Sean Farrell, owner of 12-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier rescue dog named Sgt Buster. Farrell knew that Buster had some trust issues, particularly around single men. Farrell told Stuff, "If I was on the ground floor, he would go upstairs."

So Farrell decided to help Buster find some security in a "hooman free place" of his own. Thus, the 'boudoir bedroom' project begins!

IKEA Is Teaming Up With Artists To Create Homes For Wildlife Animals Made From Recycled Furnitures

One more great idea from furniture manufacturers, IKEA: few days ago they have launched its "Wildhomes for Wildlife" project, which asks local artists to create a series of animal homes, crafted from upcycled Ikea furniture. As part of the project, tables, lamps and chairs have been transformed into plush pads for blue tits, bats and bees. "Now," Ikea says, "all of our new neighbours can enjoy an amazing home. Even our furry, feathered and flying friends." Big like from us! Via: It's Nice That

Inside this ordinary suburban home there lives a host of hopping surprises - a troop of baby kangaroos. When a stranger pulled up at their home with an orphaned kangaroo in 2010, this couple's lives changed forever and Our Haven Wildlife Shelter was born. Theresa and Tony Matthews had always loved wildlife but after being told that the healthy orphaned joey would have to be euthanised, they realised they had to aid the helpless animal and their kangaroo sanctuary was born.

Architecture Studio Designed The "Dream Dog House" With A Green Roof

California architecture firm Studio Schicketanz have designed the "Dog Dream House", that features wood construction, a green roof, and storage for toys. The front wall of the dog house can be opened for easy cleanup, and inside there's a soft rubberized surface (similar to that found in children's playgrounds), a solar-powered fan to keep the dog cool, and a couple of little windows. A fully functional green roof can be accessed by a grassy ramp. Hidden within the ramp is a storage drawer for toys, leashes, and treats. The green roof is home to a motion-activated faucet so that the dog always has fresh water, and the runoff waters the grass. Check it out. Via: Design You Trust
