Buddy does not Squee

Hey, remember me? I'm Buddy, but it's been a while since I've posted, so I shoved all the others out of the way ... uh, won the race to the typing chair today to bring you a fun video.

This is a squee video. You know, one of those with cute little animals that make humans go squee! Notice I said it makes humans go squee.  I am a hound.  A male hound.  I bay.  I howl.  I do not squee! 

These are a couple of baby otters at Longleat in the United Kingdom.  Their names are Sumalee and Kasem.  We seem to remember reading something about their mom having a problem caring for them as babies, so they have been bottle-fed and are now learning to swim so they can be returned to their parents, Rosie and Romeo.

Baby otters have to be taught to swim and they would be just as determined to climb out of the water if their teacher was their mom. But once they get the hang of it, it's fun! And they even have a rubber duckie and other toys to play with in the water.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

Darcy is a Maine Coon cat with serious dental problems which are not the fault of the breeder (she was a breeding cat in her first home) or her current family. She has an autoimmune problem that requires the removal of all her teeth ASAP!

Her mom writes: "Darcy has the worse case of stomatitis the vet had seen in 5 years. Not only that but she has Feline Oral Resorptive Lesions. Resorptive Lesions is when the cat's body attacks the teeth and starts dissolving them and eating away at them."

The extent of the problem was discovered during dental surgery to remove a few of her teeth. It was a shock to her mom and she could only afford to have 14 of Darcy's teeth removed the other day. You can read Darcy's story and if you would like to help, there is a Chip In button for donations.

From all of us - have a great weekend!
