The Caturday Report! Mama Cat Nurses Abandoned Premature Puppies

(no bigger than a minute that one)

"A Chihuahua went into premature labor and gave birth Tuesday to four puppies, but two of them died shortly afterward.

The two survivors weighed only a few of ounces and were about as long as a person's index finger.
They were rejected by the mother dog, leaving the hours-old puppies with very little chance of survival without a mother's care, according SPCA staff.

The two puppies were introduced to Nessy, a 2-year-old Siamese mix that gave birth to four kittens last week, and the pups were immediately accepted into the litter.

On Thursday, mother cat was nursing and grooming the two pups. SPCA staff have used the technique before and expect the kittens and puppies to bond and play together as they grow up."

Kindergarten Gun Safety Demonstration Injures Five

A policeman's handgun went off accidentally when two officers held a safety demonstration at a kindergarten in China to mark International Children's Day, injuring one child and four parents, authorities said.

A gun discharged accidentally and a bullet hit the ground, sending shards of cement flying into the air, wounding five people, said police authorities in Zhengzhou, in the central province of Henan.
Those wounded had injuries to their arms and legs and were rushed to hospital but doctors said none of the wounds was life-threatening, police said on China's Twitter-like Sina Weibo.

The two police officers are being held in solitary confinement and three of their supervisors have been suspended, authorities said in a separate posting on Thursday.

Dog Poop Forces Emergency Landing Of US Airways Flight

(Luckily They Are Well Versed In Emergency Landings)

"US Airways flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City after a service dog started pooping in the aisle and the flight crew was unable to contain the mess.

The passengers aboard US Airways Flight 598 could only sit back and watch while a big dog defecated in the aisle not once, but twice.

After the dog went to the bathroom for the first time about an hour into the flight, the crew did their best to deal with the mess but they were unable to contain the smell.

"An hour later, it still smelled bad, and after they cleaned it all up, it pooped again," Passenger Steve McCall told INSIDE EDITION. "A couple of people started dry-heaving, a couple of people were throwing up."

Naked Manure Rolling Sex Pervert Arrested Again

"A pervert with a slurry fetish has been jailed for carrying out an eight year vendetta against a farmer who banned him from rolling naked in cowpats on his land.

David Truscott threatened to burn down the farm in West Cornwall and to attack owner Clive Roth, his wife Jackie, and their family.

He was being treated at a hostel in Exeter when he made a series of chilling threats about how he wanted to take revenge on the family by burning their farm and tying their 17-year-old son to a tree.

Truscott has already served four prison terms for previous attacks on Mr Roth’s Woodbury House Farm near Redruth including setting light to a tractor, a cattle shed and a milking parlour.


Burn Victim Runs Into 7-11 And Pours Slurpees All Over Himself

(Tastes great AND doubles as burn medicine!)

"The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports the man had suffered burns and was being chased by two others Tuesday afternoon when he ran into the 7-Eleven store in downtown Grants Pass.

Store clerk Charlie Bentley says he didn't know what was going on, but he and another employee kept the two pursuers outside while the man filled his shirt from the Slurpee machine and rubbed the icy concoction on his skin.

Police say they traced the disturbance back to a residence a few blocks away, where a man and a woman were burned with hot oil during a dispute between neighbors."

Three Foot Saw Blade Breaks Loose And Goes On Murderous Rampage In Hell's Kitchen

Matthew Bisi was walking by when the 3-foot blade "came shooting down the sidewalk."
"I was on the right side of the sidewalk, suddenly everyone started yelling 'Get down! Move!'" he said. "It was just like crazy chaos. People screaming, all the construction workers." 

"I just turned, kinda ducked, put my head down," he said. "Thing came flying right by my head, missed me by that much. You could hear it coming and it went right by me," he said.

Another witness, Sean Kuilan, also recalled the sound of the blade.

"I hear the blade and see the blade literally coming off the machine," he said. "It was huge. It looked like it was from a horror flick. I couldn't believe it."

It traveled about 100 feet before hitting a tree and then sliced into a woman "straight on," according to Bisi.

"It took her right down, gashes on the side of the thigh," he said. "The force of that coming in was pretty hard."

Depressed Goat Ends Hunger Strike After Being Reunited With Donkey Best Friend Forever

"Earlier this year, animal welfare officials seized dozens of dogs and three farm animals from the home of a hoarder. The animals were living in squalor and taken to a variety of animal care facilities.

Mr.G and Jellybean were separated for the first time in their lives when they were taken to separate animal sanctuaries in Northern California.

>> Watch the touching reunion between Mr. G and Jellybean (-->KTVU)

Officials at the Animal Place in Grass Valley took in Mr. G., but noticed immediately that something was wrong.

Animal Place officials said it didn’t matter what the staff did, the goat refused to eat and just lay in the corner of his stall.

They offered him treats like sweet grain and apples – favorite foods for a goat. But that didn’t work.
Mr. G was given a thorough physical exam and appeared to be completely healthy. After four days, officials said something drastic needed to be done.

They decided to reunite him with the burro. It took three days to go get Jellybean and transport him to Grass Valley.

When Jellybean finally arrived, as he was being unloaded from the animal trailer, Mr. G heard him and immediately leapt to his hooves and ran to the door.

Soon the two were reunited. They are now happily sharing a pen, and Mr. G is eating again."

Bees Feast On M&Ms And Make Blue Honey

Image: Science Dump
"French beekeepers were recently shocked when their bees started producing thick, blue and green honey.

After investigating, they discovered their bees were feeding on the colourful shells of M&Ms - a Mars processing plant was located just 4 km away.

The Mars waste-processing plant has now solved the problem and are cleaning any outdoor or uncovered containers that M&M waste was stored in, so it's unlikely you'll see the blue honey on the market any time soon.

As Reuters reports, the unsellable honey is a new issue for the beekeepers, who are already struggling with high bee mortality rates and dwindling honey supplies."

Drone Walks Doggie

The AR drone apparently also keeps an eye on the pet, as shown in the video which occasionally shifted perspectives from a third-party viewer to the perspective of the drone looking down at the dog.

The idea seems feasible if you have a very well-behaved pet like the dog in the video, but in reality more careful planning and programming may be required for larger and more strong-willed pets or even for small ones. Also, it may take more than a drone to clean up after pets who leave smelly surprises on the sidewalks. There are so many things to consider about using drones to take pets out for a walk, but Myers simply takes a fun concept and illustrates how it would look like if such a thing could be done today.

Cat Beat Up And Thrown In Dumpster For Looking Like Adolf Hitler

(Baz did lose an eye)

“A lot of people say he looks like Hitler, but he is so timid and gentle. I put a photo on Facebook of Baz as he has a distinctive black mark under his nose, and asked if anyone saw him to contact me."

“I took a call at work from the vet to say he had been found in a bin, but was in a bad way. He had been there for a while. She took him straight to the vet for treatment. It is shocking someone would do something like that.”

Baz was taken for emergency treatment at Pets at Home in Bristol Road and underwent an operation on Wednesday.

Kirsty may be facing a £600 veterinary bill, but vets insist he is lucky to be alive. Gloucestershire police are now investigating the incident and appealing for witnesses to come forward.

"Head-bomb man strips naked, then surrenders"

Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Martin Bourke said when police approached the driver they saw what may have been a bomb strapped to his head.

"Police then observed what appeared to be a suspicious device strapped to this male so we backed right off and tried to negotiate with the male,'' Det Bourke said.

"The device was around his head.''

After negotiation attempts failed, the man drove his truck away from police. They chased the driver for about 4km before he stopped, did a U-turn and started driving into on-coming traffic on the Monash Freeway.

Police stopped the traffic at Toorak Road and evacuated the freeway.

"In his truck, in his prime mover he got up to about 100km/h, accelerating quite quickly towards the oncoming traffic,'' Det Bourke said.

"It was an incredibly risky situation.''

The man stopped his truck just short of vehicles that had been parked on the freeway after their drivers were evacuated. Police again attempted to negotiate with the man, who stripped naked and then surrendered.

Walmart Madness #135! Breast Reader Arrested

Sanford police have arrested Zulfikar Jaffer, 52.

Last Thursday police said  Jaffer approached a female in the Walmart parking lot and indicated that he wanted to read her palm, police said. He then proceeded to place his hand down the victim's shirt.

Then, just before noon Monday, a second female contacted the Sanford Police Department to report she was approached by a man who asked to read her palm at an Aldi near the Walmart. The woman said he then followed her into the parking lot, and convinced her to sit in his car and let him read her palm again. That's when the woman said placed his hand down the front of her shirt.

The woman got out and called 911, and when Sanford Police arrived and saw Jaffer's car, they said they recognized it from the incident Thursday and took him into custody.

He was arrested on two counts of battery and was released from the John E. Polk Correctional Facility on bond.

Investigators are concerned that Jaffer has additional victims.

Anyone with information relating to Jaffer is asked to contact the Sanford Police Department at 407-688-5070.

Toddler Roams The Neighborhood In The Rain With An Axe


Mary Katherine Dehli, 32, and James Edward Filchack, 40, of Oxford are charged with second degree child endangerment.

Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence says the two were arrested after a neighbor called to report a small boy was "roaming the neighborhood carrying an ax."

The child was under the couple's supervision at the time he was spotted "wandering the area" in the rain, Lawrence said.

Dehli and Filchack appeared before District Judge David E. Miller who set a court date for the pair and they were released from the Izard County Detention Facility.


Dine In The Dark! The Whale Belly Restaurant Offers A Pitch Black Dining Experience

Step inside Beijing’s Whale Belly Dark Restaurant where diners eat in pitch-black darkness.

Waiters in military-grade night vision goggles greet you at the door and lead you through dark corridors into pitch-black dining halls where scents, sounds, textures, and tastes are accentuated to an extraordinary mealtime experience. Cellphones, lighters, glow-in-the dark watches, and other luminous or shiny items are kept in security lockers to optimize the experience.

The dark restaurant idea first arose in Zurich in 1999 as an effort to provide jobs for the blind and handicapped. The concept then spread across the world under the Blind-Liecht foundation as a new twist on conceptual dining. Whale Belly Dark Restaurant is the first dark restaurant in Asia which opened in 2007.


Smell Like A Viking! Norse Power Viking Deodorant Released

"I Sharted!"

"A deodorant that makes you smell like a Viking has been released in an unusual bid to attract tourists to York.

Norse Power was commissioned by the Visit York agency to give the modern male an idea of the aromas that abounded in the days of longships, long swords and even longer beards.

Apparently, mead, gore, sweat, animal meat, seawater and smoke were the typical odours of a 10th century warrior.

The body spray was developed by a team of scent scientists in consultation with experts at the Jorvik Viking Centre which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.

Visit York marketing manager Michelle Brown said: "Historical research indicates that the Vikings were quite particular about personal hygiene, especially when compared to the Anglo Saxons.
"But even so, this only meant washing once a week, which by today's standards isn't exactly the height of cleanliness!

"And for a Viking raider, who'd travelled hundreds of miles over land and sea, and spent their days fighting bloody skirmishes, it's fair to say they wouldn't always have carried the most alluring aromas around with them."

A High Elf Battling Evil Attacks Car With Sword

The last thing the woman from Northeast Portland probably expected when she got up Tuesday morning was that she would be attacked by a sword-wielding elf.

But that's what happened around 7 a.m. as she drove her red BMW by the intersection of Southeast 7th and Morrison.

A man dressed in chain-mail with a helmet, shield and carrying a sword and staff ran into traffic and started attacking her car.

When police got there, they detained Konrad Bass of Glendale, Oregon.

Bass told officers that he wasn't a pirate but a "high-elf engaged in battle with the evil Morgoth."
Morgoth is a character created by JRR Tolkien in a prequel to the Lord of the Rings stories. In the stories, he is the character from which all evil grew.

Bass, who was cited for criminal mischief and transported to Providence Hospital, also told officers he had taken LSD.

The woman's car had several puncture marks.

That's when the family's cat took action.

Responding police officers stated that if this had been their own son, the call response would have been for "Shots fired.."

Condom Calamari

(All aboard the nope train to screwthatville)

"Disgusted diner Mai Liang was halfway through her fish and squid rings dish at a restaurant when she discovered a particularly ‘rubbery’ piece was actually a contraceptive.

Events took another bizarre twist when the owner of the restaurant in Anhui province, China, grabbed the condom and swallowed it.

‘It was disgusting. My first horrific thought was: Is it used?’ explained Ms Liang.

‘Imagine my horror when I turned it over with my fork and it turned out to be a contraceptive.’

Restaurant boss Yi Ze Teng says she ate the condom to stop the argument with her customer and has accused the diners of putting it in their food to get a free meal.

‘They said if I ate the condom, they would leave the matter, so I swallowed it,’ Ms Ze Teng revealed."

Walmart Madness #133! Woman Hates Vibes, So Attacks Clerk With Scissors

"I gotta improve these vibes!"

"Police say Nancy K. Reed allegedly said something about the mafia kidnapping her grandchild, and she didn't like the vibe coming from the register.

Then, violence erupted. The video shows the woman pulling scissors from her cart and jabbing a clerk in the arm. Seconds later, she lunges at a second employee with the scissors -- a tussle that ends up on the ground.

At some point, Reed goes for the hair, police said.

"The staff person got her hair pulled and a fist-full of hair came out," said Shannon Haigh with Mount Vernon police.

A brave customer stepped in to take the scissors out of the woman's hand, and no one was seriously hurt. And while everybody was waiting for police to arrive, the woman starts dancing around and lifting up her dress."

Drug Mule Sentenced To 3 Years Of Prison On His 90th Birthday

(Happy birthday)

A 90-year-old Indiana man, who admitted serving as a cocaine courier for a Mexican drug cartel was sentenced on Wednesday to three years in federal prison. Leo Sharp, a decorated World War Two combat veteran, was also sentenced to three years supervised release by Judge Nancy Edmunds in US District Court in Detroit. After sentencing, Sharp turned to prosecutors and called the term a "death sentence." Sharp was pulled over by police in October 2011 for erratic driving on an interstate highway in Michigan with what turned out to be 104 bricks of cocaine in his truck. He pleaded guilty last October to one count of conspiring to distribute cocaine in an agreement with prosecutors that included a recommendation for a prison sentence of five years. Sharp's plea agreement and reduced charge allowed him to avoid a mandatory 10-year minimum sentence. He agreed to forfeit two properties in Florida and $500,000 cash, but not his home and farm in Michigan City, Indiana. Report by Sarah Kerr:

Man Masturbates On Crowded City Bus, Gets Confronted On Tape

"Police are searching for a man who was caught on camera allegedly performing a lewd act with children sitting nearby.

The incident happened around 9:30 a.m. Friday morning, according to Transit officials. A woman recorded the video after she noticed the man was exposed, sitting right next to her.

The woman who confronted the man on video is talking only to Fox 29.

"When you're in that kind of situation you're more concerned with thinking,'Am I really seeing what I'm seeing? Is this really happening?'" said Ida Goldkorn.

Goldkorn says she is still mentally processing the cell phone video she shot Friday morning on SEPTA Bus 23 moving through North Philadelphia.

The video shows a man police now consider a suspect, fondling himself on the crowded bus, which included a child seated right behind him.

"He was I guess was turning around and looking at her and looking at me and felt like that was ok. And that's what really, really disturbed me because I'm sure the little girl had a pretty clear of what was going on," she explained.

Appalled, the Temple Criminal Justice doctoral student confronted him while recording.

You even see him argue with her in the video.

"I was not even remotely expecting that. I really though that the video or telling him that I was taping him would make him get up but obviously he didn't do that," said Goldkorn.

Philadelphia's Special Victim's Unit says an arrest warrant has been issued for the Germantown man in his early 30s is wanted for open lewdness and reckless endangerment after investigators saw the video on the People of Septa Facebook page.

Goldkorn says she's glad police had the video to go on.

"I'm glad I did it. I don't think I could live with myself if I hadn't done it," she said.

Her actions prompted the driver to kick the man off the bus.

Philadelphia police have not released the name of the suspect, but they say they know who they're looking for."

Here is video with an interview of the lady that taped him:

Drunk Woman Looking For ATM Finds BNSF Instead

"Maria Segura needed some cash on Monday morning.

So, she got behind the wheel of her 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier and began searching for an ATM, only to take a left turn onto the Burlington Northern railroad tracks at Harlem Avenue in Riverside.

The fact that police said her blood-alcohol level was 2.5 times the legal limit might explain why she ended up stuck on the tracks around 4 a.m., forcing the railroad to halt operations until the car could be moved.

A Riverside police officer saw the whole incident, which is fortunate for Segura because he was able to quickly alert the 911 dispatcher to halt trains on that line.

Segura, 26, told police she was looking for an ATM and made a wrong turn."

"Our sympathy goes out to the deceased child and the family," said the attorney, Charles Robinson. "[The video] shows physically what a person does. It does not show what is going on her mind. What we need to know is what did she do and why and that will be determined later."

Zakk Wylde's Blue Les Paul Guitar Stolen And Pawned For $50.00

(I'm sure he would have given them the axe,  had they asked)

"Black Label Society's Zakk Wylde got some good news over the weekend. His Pelham Blue Bullseye Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar — which was stolen March 14 from his tour bus in Chicago — has been found.

The guitar, which was valued at $10,000, turned up in a Chicago pawn shop called Royal Pawn (on South Clark Street). The store was the setting of truTV’s Hardcore Pawn: Chicago reality TV show."

 "The pawn shop had been alerted about the reported theft right after it took place, said Randy Cohen, who along with his brother Wayne owns the Loop pawn shop that was previously the subject of the Tru TV reality show "Hardcore Pawn: Chicago."

"I forgot about (the alert)," Cohen said. "That happens every day. To be honest, I can't remember (expletive)."

But the seller's information was recorded as part of the transaction, the Cohens said, and the guitar's serial number and description was entered into an online database accessible by law enforcement across the country."

So,  they asked for ID from the guy that pawned it,  didn't they?

The Caturday Report! Old Time Cat's Map Of The World Released

*Click on photos for full size*

Mars-owned petfood brand Whiskas has imagined how your home, and garden, might appear to your cat in a series of press ads aimed at demonstrating how well it understands the feline brain. The beautifully-drawn and detailed maps rename every feature from the cat's point of view -- for example, Table-top Mountain, Washing Up Wetlands and Shelf Highlands. The ads are copy-heavy, but if you take the time to read (which presumably the brand hopes cat lovers will do), they're charming and amusing. Abbot Mead Vickers BBDO was responsible.

Sorry,  but I couldn't find more of the full sized maps.  The other ones can be viewed here:

"A Texas judge who ordered a rapist to serve community service at a rape crisis center has been forced to reconsider the sentence.

In a police interview, Sir Young admitted that he had raped a 14-year-old girl in 2011 at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts when he was 18.

“I hate to have that on my plate. But that’s rape,” he told police.

According to The Dallas Observer, Young could have served 20 years in jail, but Dallas County District Judge Jeanine Howard showed him leniency during last week’s sentencing.

Howard ruled that Young would only have to spend 45 days in jail, but it was the “250 hours of community service at a rape crisis center” that shocked victim advocates.

“I’m sure she probably thought that it was his way of giving back perhaps,” Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center Executive Director Bobbie Villareal told WFAA. “But it’s just not an appropriate place for him to do his community supervision,”

Skin Cells Turned Into Human Sperm

Someone will soon be able to get a skin flake or a hair from you and make a baby you don't even know about!  :P

(Didn't get my good side though)

"In a published in the journal Cell Reports, Pera and her colleagues describe what they did. They took skin cells from infertile men and manipulated them in the laboratory to become induced pluripotent stem cells, which are very similar to human embryonic stem cells. That means they have the ability to become virtually any cell in the body.

They then inserted the cells into the testes of mice, where they became very immature human sperm cells, the researchers report.

"It's much easier than we actually expected," Pera told Shots.

 "So it is not impossible in the future that a movie star may find some of his hair follicles purloined and then on the market as donor sperm," Green says. "You can imagine some clandestine sperm bank saying, 'We're selling George Clooney's sperm.' "

That's not all, Green says. Posthumous reproduction "becomes a possibility," he says, which would mean that "people who are dead or long dead — so long as there is a live tissue sample somewhere being preserved — could be the parents of children." This might appeal, for instance, to the family of a man who died in a war, Green says."

Man Gets One Year In Jail For Dousing Puppy With Hot Sauce

He should have used catchup (sorry,  couldn't resist)

"Gizmo, a dachshund-chihuahua mix, was 3 months old on Feb. 23 when Myles became annoyed with the dog and poured hot sauce on it. The hot sauce got in the puppy's eyes and throat.

Myles denied pouring the hot sauce on the puppy.

The previous owner took the puppy, which was having trouble breathing and had its eyes swollen shut, to a nearby fire station.

The hot sauce was washed off of the puppy and it was treated for neurological problems. Yuter said veterinarians believe the puppy — who has a history of seizures — had the neurological issues prior to the hot sauce incident. Gizmo was adopted a few days later."

Dogs Are Licking Poisonous Toads To Get High

"Queensland dogs are getting high by licking the poison off cane toads.

Vets are warning some pooches may become addicted to the hallucinogenic and are risking their lives trying to get their next toad fix.

It's being reported the dogs have worked out how to lick the toad just enough to get high.

"This phenomenon of animals deliberately getting intoxicated by cane toads, it's fascinating," says veterinarian Megan Pickering. "It just seems unbelievable that an animal will go back for a second try.

"But nevertheless we do have many documented cases of patients who deliberately - on a regular basis - will seek out a toad and they seem to be able to lick the toad in such a way that they seem to get a very small dose."

Ms Pickering claims the dogs become addicts, putting their lives at serious risk. 

One dog was recently found frothing and trembling.

Man Runs A Mile In The Great Time Of 4:57 Minutes, While Chugging Four Beers

(This gives new meaning to the term "Beer Run.")

"James Nielsen attempts to become the first person to break the five-minute barrier in the “Beer Mile.” For the uninitiated, a “Beer Mile” is when a runner sprints a mile around a track while stopping every quarter mile to chug a beer. It is the perfect intersection of fitness and laziness and I can’t imagine that this video won’t prompt thousands of believers to give this sport a try (and promptly vomit everywhere shortly thereafter)."
