Cat That Became A Postman (Viral Twitter Thread)

Here's a story out of 2020 that no one predicted: a cat named Billy became a postman. 

Twitter user @zacharyking, in a thread that went viral, shared the story of how his girlfriend began corresponding with one of her neighbors through little letters attached to Billy's collar. It all started with Billy showing up one day with a little note attached to his collar, in which the neighbors that Billy apparently kept visiting said hello. Not thinking much of it, the girlfriend attached a letter to Billy's collar, replying to them, and lo and behold, the cat comes back holding another letter. 

The rest is history. The neighbors became friends, recipes were shared, Billy got an official postman collar - then lost it and got another one - and we are all endlessly impressed by this cat's work ethic. Read their adorable story and smile at one of the most innocently wholesome stories of the past year.

Reddit User Befriends Crows Who In Turn Help By Getting Back At Bully Neighbors

Let's talk about crows for a moment. Most people don't tend to like birds that much, and some people even think of them as bad omens. However, crows, ravens, magpies, the whole Corvus genus are extremely intelligent animals and because of that intelligence, they can be extremely vindictive and hold a grudge for a long time. 

Not only is it a bad idea to make an enemy with one of those birds, but there have been stories of those who treat them kindly and have been rewarded in return. Crows are incredible birds and we definitely don't want them as our enemies! If these stories have thought us anything, it seems beneficial to help out the crows because maybe, just maybe, they'll surprise you in a way you wouldn't expect. Truth be told, this kindness and request should of course be given to all animals, and just showing you there may be consequences to those who aren't as kind. 

One Reddit user, u/tempthethrowaway, has shared an amazing story of how befriending crows helped them deal with some unpleasant bully neighbors. Seems like it pays off to have some feathered friends in high places!

Spent some time doing research on them and their diets and went out and got some snacks that would be nutritious for them. Every couple of days I'd chop up some fruits and veggies and grains and take them out to their favorite tree in a little tupperware box. I'd pick it up later and it would be empty. It got to the point where they'd know

Woman Curious About The Neighbor's Cat Asks His Name While Keeping Social Distance

Seems like social isolation is making us all so much more creative. 

like this woman from New York, for example. 

While practicing social distancing at home, Lizzie Bartelt became more and more interested in the while cat roaming in the house in front of her. 

Since she couldn't just walk up to his apartment or wait to meet his owner sometime soon, she decided to find out his name the quarantine way, by putting a poster asking "What's the white cat's name?" on her window. 

Chris, her neighbor living right in front of her, replied with a sign too and this lovely window tale has now gone viral with more than 657K likes.
