Awwinspiring Cat Travels The World With Its Owner

Former rugby player, Dean Nicholson, got tired of his day to day life and decided to go on a trip around the world, hoping for a change. What he got on top of that was an adorable kitty cat, who he named Nala, for a travel buddy. 

He told BBC that as he was cycling up a large hill into Montenegro, he "heard a wee cat miaowing from behind me. She was chasing me up the hill. So I stopped and pulled over and she just wouldn't leave my side. I put her on the front of my bike and got her comfy to take her into the next town. I went to find out if she was microchipped," adding that "she wasn't and she climbed up on my shoulder and fell asleep and I just thought that was it, she was coming with me on this tour."

Dean said that Nala changed him as a person, saying: "She has taught me just to slow down and enjoy life a lot more. Having her on the bike her needs come first and it slowed the tour down and now we stop and play a lot. If there's woods we stop and play and she loves running on the beach." He had to organize a pet passport for her, and together, they have covered about 10,000 miles.

Everywhere they are, the pair attract attention, and we're not surprised at all. We would probably be just as in awe as the rest of the local people if we saw Nala riding on Dean's bike or shoulder. One of the locals has apparently even given Dean a free beer as a result of the kitten on his shoulder, which we think is entirely justified and adorable. 

"We are going to spend winter in Greece working at some animal sanctuaries," Dean said. "Then through Russia in the spring and on to Thailand. I want that whole dream of sitting on the beach - with a coconut." We hope that his dream comes true and also that he doesn't forget to give Nala her own little coconut filled with delicious wet cat food. 

Check out their pictures together bellow, and you can visit their Instagramand YouTubechannel as well.

Two Artists Create Miniature World Where Snails Are The Main Actors

Creative duo Aleia Murawski and Sam Copeland hold onto an essential aspect of childhood — play. The miniatures the duo creates are so intricate in detail that if it wasn't for the mammoth snails that occupy them, you'd believe they were real. There is something intensely satisfying about watching a creature trail slime over the roof of a miniature car, or sit, tentacle eyes swaying, on the top of a skateboard. "I like to think of snails as tiny puppies with shells", Aleia comments. "I love seeing how they will interact with a set. We put cucumber juice on certain objects, but we cannot wield a snail to do something. We make a scene and hope they are interested in what is around them." For more, visit their unique instagram page.

National Geographic With Heartbreaking Photos Of How Using Plastic Ruins Our World And Hurts Animals

Humans are using far too much plastic and most of us don't realize what kind of problems it is causing for the animals that live there or how it affects the entire planet. The June 2018 cover of National Geographic magazine is helping make people more aware of the problem. It talks about how much trash people on this planet produce each year and even each day and how that trash is changing our world and the animal kingdom- animals are eating plastic and getting caught up in it. Shocking images fill up the pages. Birds are wrapped in plastic bags, turtles are caught in plastic fishing nets, and fish are eating small pieces of plastic that break free from the floating masses of trash that float around in the oceans. The photos are shameful and devastating.
