Artist Creates Animal Sculptures From Trash To Draw Attention To Waste Production

And he is successfully getting that message across! Portuguese artist, Artur Bordalo, has created an art series, 'Big Trash Animals,' that has been so successful in achieving his goals in drawing attention to waste production locally that he's now going global! 

From the USA to Estonia and Tahiti. Bordalo scavenges his materials from waste that was dumped in the area, which, sadly, has proven to be less than difficult. And from that trash, he creates his magnificent sculptures.

In Bordalo's own words, "I belong to a generation that is extremely consumerist, materialist and greedy. With the production of things at its highest, the production of "waste" and unused objects is also at its highest. "Waste" is quoted because of its abstract definition: "one man's trash is another man's treasure". I create, recreate, assemble and develop ideas with end-of-life material and try to relate it to sustainability, ecological and social awareness."

See some of his work below! You can also check out his website and follow on Instagram

Redditor Writes A Letter To Her Seemingly 'Unfriendly' Cat Exposing How Sweet She Really Is

Cat's are known to express their love and affection to us humans in many ways. Some are cuddlers, and some will rub against your leg (happy to see you) then immediately yell at you if you try to pet them. Some love to sleep on your lap, and some like to attack your feet from under the couch.

Cat's are complicated and it may take years for them to open up and trust their humans. Reddit user, u/skeletoorr shared the sweetest message about her cat, Audrey. The post first went viral 3 months ago but has been circulating the web again and the message is too wholesome not to spread and share.

A Women Sends An Important Message To Kitten Owners: “Don't Make The Same Mistake I Did"

Ollie is a cute adopted kitten who was a healthy and happy cat until one day he began throwing up everywhere and eventually just stopped moving, according to an emotional post written by his owner on Imgur. At the emergency vet, they did blood tests and x rays and found a hard mass inside his stomach and intestines. The vet told his owner they needed to do an emergency surgery or he would die.

After almost losing her cat, these women urges cat owners not to let their cats chew on anything - cover photo of a gross looking string thing in a medically sealed bag.

Squee lovers, I am sorry to say that starting next week, yours truly will no longer be running Daily Squee.

It's not all bad news though! Long-time squee fans will remember my replacement! Her name is Ingo, and she ran the site with Brad before I jumped on to take charge! She loves cute animals and is much less punny than me, so I'm sure you'll all get along with her just fine! Plus you'll still be able to find me every day on So Much Pun.

Also, I want to leave doing what we all love: Sharing the squee! So above is a photo of my way-too-fat cat, Mea, taking up half of my parents' coffee table in her typical tabby fashion. She used to be skinny when we first got her, but then I moved away from home and my parents pampered her waaaaaaaaay too much with a never-ending supply of treats. :)

It's truly been a joy to be in the squee community, and I promise I'll drop in from time to time to say hello. Thanks for making my job adorable, everyone!

Love, Matthew "Matty Malaprop" Martell
