A Vet’s Office Thought They Were Treating an Exotic Bird, but It Was Just Covered in Curry

Some folks recently brought what they believed to be an exotic, orange bird to the Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in England because they saw it stranded on the side of the road looking like it couldn’t fly.

Looks pretty exotic to me.

Ooohhhhh, I wonder what species it could be…

So the vets got to work treating the bird.

And what did they discover? The bird was actually a seagull covered in curry.

The Facebook post from the animal hospital read:

“This is one of the strangest casualty circumstances we have seen in a while! This bright-orange herring gull was rescued by kind members of the public who spotted him at the side of the A41. When they called to say they had picked up an orange bird, we had no idea what to expect – and would never have guessed at this!

He had somehow gotten himself covered in curry or turmeric! It was all over his feathers, preventing him from flying properly. We have no idea how he got into this predicament but thankfully, apart from the vibrant colour and pungent smell, he was healthy.

Our veterinary team bravely bathed the gull (now named Vinny after a Vindaloo curry) to clean off his feathers. He managed to cover them in curry water, but eventually did let us scrub him clean.

He is now looking much better and should be able to go for release very soon! As we say, we never know what will come through our doors next!

Huge thanks to the lovely finders who stopped to rescue him.”

Vindaloo, I mean Vinny, is now doing just fine. But he needs to avoid all Indian food for the time being…

A Blind Golden Retriever and His Guide Dog Are BFF and It Is Beautiful

Take a look at these adorable pups! This is what friendship goals look like!

Jake and Addie are inseparable not only because they’re devoted to each other, but because Jake is blind and Addie acts as his guide dog. Jake lost his sight when he was only 2-years-old and Addie has been a loyal friend and helper every step of the way. Jake and Addie’s owner Kim said, “Jake follows Addie’s sound and smell. After Jake’s surgery, Addie wore a little bell on her collar for a while until he got used to tracking her on his own.”

Jake’s owners were worried about his quality of life after he had to have his eyes removed, but they were reassured that blind dogs can go on to live happy, fulfilling lives. And, by the looks of it, Jake is doing just that.

Kim added, “Our vet also counseled us that, to a dog, sight is actually number 3 on their list of senses, as both smell and hearing are more important to them.”

Take a look at these two best friends and all the adventures they go on together!

1. BFF

2. Time to celebrate!

I knew there may be questions but still want to share the pics ❤ I appreciate all of the sweet comments of concern and all of the prayers for her. I also want to thank you for the cards, DM’s, and comments of support during this difficult time losing my grandma. I felt so much comfort the last couple of weeks. -Kim . . . . . .

Adorable Photos of Dogs at Bath Time! Oh Yeah!

Some dogs looooove bath time, others really don’t. And a few are in between

And these 15 photos show the range of emotions they experience.

Do any of these pictures remind you of your pooch at bath time?

1. Not a fan

I got a BATH yesterday. I do not enJoy baths, but I’m very polite and stand patiently in the tub until it’s over. . . PD: The photos show me (a black poodle) in various states of bathtime. The first is of me after I get out of the run with a grey towel drawled over my head and shoulders. My face is still wet and I look very concerned. The second and third photos are of me in the white tub during my bath, where I am wet and my curly hair is all messed up. My fabric collar was taken off and I wear a silver training collar. The fourth photo is of me in the tub, but right before the water starts up. I am still soft and fuzzy, with my tail fluffy and dry. You can see the shower hose attachment coming down from the shower head. The final photo is of me after I’ve been all dried up, sitting in front of wooden kitchen cabinets on a light yellow hardwood floor. I am smiling and fuzzy once again! . . . . . . . . . . . #standardpoodle #blackpoodlesofinstagram #poodlesofinstagram #blackdogsofinstagram #standardpoodlesofinstagram #standardpoodlepuppy #poodlepuppy #blackpoodlepuppy #blackstandardpoodle #bathtime #dogsinbaths #puppybathtime #tubpuppy #wetdog

Hundreds of People Are Reporting Bigfoot Sightings in Pennsylvania

If you live on the East Coast of the U.S., here’s some great news! Pennsylvania now ranks as the third best place to see Bigfoot, according to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, which exists.

The BRFO reports that they have 23,000 Bigfoot sightings on file, and 1340 of them came from Pennsylvania. Accordingly, the state is becoming an increasingly popular place for enthusiasts to go “Bigfoot hunting.” There’s even a local group for it: Pennsylvania Bigfoot Investigations.

Per the Travel Channel’s blog post on the topic:

“One of Pennsylvania’s most interesting cases involves a mountain biker who, while taking a rest, thought he was watching the back-end of a bear as it rummaged through a downed-tree. The biker’s curiosity turned to shock when the animal stood up. What he thought was a bear was actually a giant 7-foot bipedal creature covered in black hair.”

For what it’s worth, Governor Tom Wolf openly welcomes Bigfoot and all his fans to Penn’s Woods, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. He encourages everyone to “explore one of our beautiful towns or parks, and see what you find.”

The BRFO’s report includes the number of sightings in every county in Pennsylvania, so you can narrow down your search.

Washington is the most popular state for Bigfoot sightings with 2032 total, followed by California with 1697 sightings. Bigfoot is often associated with the Pacific Northwest, so that’s no surprise — but if you are a Bigfoot believer then you probably knew that already.

Below Pennsylvania, there are five other states that made the BRFO’s list: Michigan (1131 sightings), Ohio (1024 sightings), Oregon (1009 sightings), and Texas (806 sightings).

So maybe you’re feeling intrigued and up for a little jaunt…

Calves Protect Their Ears from Frostbite with Muffs, and It’s Pretty Adorable

A lot of cattle ranches exist in states where winter comes early and stays well into the spring, meaning that many calves will be born while there’s still snow on the ground and temperatures are dangerously low.

According to Dr. W. Dee Whittier, calves are particularly susceptible to the cold, and the frostbite that can happen as a result.

“Newborn calves are most at risk because they are wet and because they have a large surface area in relation to their total body mass. Calves are not fully capable of maintaining temperature the first several hours of life. Newborn calves have a circulatory system that is less able to respond to cold changes as compared to more mature animals.”

Posted by Triple P Farm on Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Farmers know that losing cattle – especially brand new ones – isn’t kind, nor is it profitable.

Enter the earmuffs for calves trend, as useful as it is cute as it is ridiculous.

Posted by Triple P Farm on Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Thanks to @ThisFarmingMan_, we now have these pictures for posterity, and around 200k people online have already become obsessed.

Probably best not to look at any of these before you go out to grill a burger or a steak, though. They’re just too darn adorable to be dinner!

Or maybe you don’t care.

Probably depends on the steak.
