There's just no denying it, cats are smart. We've seen a variety of different animals react to a treadmill but they always seem the quickest to pick up on how to use it. 

Indy, the cat, is at first scared of the machinery (totally understandable) but quickly gets over his fear and soon enough -- masters the treadmill!

Cats may be called "scared cats" often, but they can also be quite fearless. 

Way to go, Indy!

Stray Cat Leads Woman Into Store, Points At Food And Leaves Adopted

That is one clever stray! 

In the streets of Mexico, this cat had started following customers in the hopes that someone would buy him some cat food. Then, one day, his life of asking for cat food would come to an end. 

Primary school teacher, Tania Lizbeth Santos Coy Tova, saw the cat from across the street, and soon enough, the stray was following her. The clever stray then led Tania into a shop nearby, walked straight up to the feed food aisle, and actually pointed to the bag of food he wanted. 

Tania was surprised and in awe! Honestly, who wouldn't be? 

So she decided to stalk his home and discovered he was living in an abandoned home. It was then that Tania decided to adopt him.

Adorable Dolphin Brings Humans Gifts From The Bottom Of The Ocean

That's it, we're moving down to Australia so we can hang out with Mystique, the humpback dolphin from Tin Can Bay on Queensland's Cooloola Coast.

Mystique is a unique pod who had recently developed quite a unique quirk -- a habit of bringing volunteers at the Barnacles Café and Dolphin Feeding centre an array of items each day! Apparently, this unusual habit began during the coronavirus pandemic while the tourists were staying home. 

Mystique is a 29-year-old male dolphin who has often displayed giving behavior but not to this extent.  Dolphin feeding volunteer Lyn McPherson said, "One male dolphin brings in objects on his rostrum, or beak, and then he carefully presents them to us." 

She says they reward him with some fish, "We haven't trained him, but he has trained us to do this."He gets under it [and] if he drops it too far out, or we say 'come on, that's not good enough', then he gets underneath it and brings it to us."The items have included bottles, big bits of timber, shells, and wood, which are brought in on his beak."We swear he has a collection waiting to bring to us," Ms McPherson said.

Since we've been closed to the public he has been doing it more and more. Sometimes he will bring 10, one at a time, and he will line them up as he has to get fish."

Now, that's a smart dolphin.

Quick-Thinking Man Saves Freezing Kittens By Pouring Coffee On Them

One man, Kendall Diwisch of Drayton Valley, Alberta, Canada, is being praised as a hero! 

Diwisch came across three abandoned kittens that were frozen to the ground, thinking on his feet, Diwish quickly returns to his truck, brings back warm coffee, and pours the fluid onto the stuck felines. Essentially, thawing them out. 

He posted on Facebook, "So today I found these three fellows on one of the back roads near one of my wells. Most likely dropped off. Poor things were frozen into the ice so they had to have been there all night. All three little rascals went to their new home today where they get to be together instead of separating them. All three are eating and drinking and very energetic. Thanks for everyone's consideration and offering to take them very appreciated."

After the incident, Diwisch took the poor little kittens back to his home where he gave him food and water, and of course, a warm shelter. 

In his Facebook post, he added: "All three little rascals went to their new home today where they get to be together instead of separating them. All three are eating and drinking and very energetic. Thanks for everyone's consideration and offering to take them very appreciated."

A million thanks to Mr Diwisch! Thank you for your kind and loving generosity for these kittens!

This Viral Video Of A Monkey Washing Clothes Puts Us All To Shame

How many of us wash our clothes by hand? Scratch that - how many of us have ever washed our clothes by hand? I'm betting that the answer is close to zero (especially if you're a millennial). Judging by the fact that you're reading this now, you've probably got access to utilities more necessary than the internet, i.e. a washing machine. So what's the big deal? The big deal is that there's a monkey in India that can wash clothes way better than you can. And monkeys don't even wear clothes (well, not naturally). How does that make you feel?
