Well the people at Whooshh Innovations came up with an amazing solution to how to move salmon, and also help the salmon, especially considering it could take them an entire day before the system to move the fish, and now it takes just seconds.

Forget to feed your cat? no worries... here's a machine to feed them. Problem solved!

Presumably inspired by Doc Brown's automatic dog-feeding Rube Goldberg machine from Back To The Future, this is a worthwhile (and relatively short) video of the automatic cat-feeding Rube Goldberg machine constructed by Joseph of Joseph's Machines, which is capable of removing a can of cat food from the fridge (then closing the door), taking the top off, and then catapulting it into the wall above the cat's dish.

Ryzhik, The Siberian Cat, Becomes The First In The World To Get Four Bionic Paws

Ryzhik (which translates to Ginger), unfortunately, lost all four of his paws back in January in a -40C storm in Tomsk, Russia. When he was found, all his paws had been so badly frostbitten and with gangrene developing at lightning speed, there was no choice but to amputate. 

Luckily, Ryzhik's new owner truly cares for this cat who has overcome such great odds. The owner took Ryzhik to a special clinic in Novosibirsk that specializes in artificial limbs.

Do pets need social media apps? Well, they have one now. Petzbe is a new app for pets. Their owners use it, but they use it from their pet's perspective. Instead of liking and following each other, users get to sniff, lick, and share stories about their frolics in the dog park or how they got in trouble for shredding the roll of toilet paper in the bathroom.
