This is the prince of all dolphins, the king of kindness to all animals. Who ever thought that these creatures would or could be friends? You are not going to believe this video. The cat clearly wants the dolphin to come closer to him, even going to far as to put his front paws on the tiniest of all ledges over the vast ocean, and the dolphin obliges, to let the kitty rub his little cheek on the dolphin's nose in the universal cat sign of "I like you"! Truly miraculous. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGrN3uWO_Rs

When German-teen Regina Mayer's parents wouldn't buy her a horse with which she could chase her dreams of competing in hurdle competitions, she decided to teach this beautiful cow, Luna, how to be a horse. Check them out in action in this video:
Apparently, cows are very loyal -- although stubborn -- creatures. They won't always do as they're told, and you can see that Luna doesn't, but I like that attitude!

This is my dream come true! When I was a kid, I always wanted to attach a video camera to our rough-and-tumble (but incredibly sweet) fluffy, orange cat, Chauney. I imagined the great adventures she must have had during her day: hunting, fighting, going into strangers' houses, flirting with teenage boys (I saw her!), hunting. . . oh, I guess I mentioned that. Well, I didn't approve, but she was a great hunter. Well, now we can watch an animal that is at least as cool: an Adelie penguin in the Antarctic, to whom Japanese scientists have attached a video camera in a world first. Check it out! http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/video/2011/apr/08/penguin-cam-birds-eye-view-antarctica-video

I know it doesn't feel like it's spring to us -- what with all the snow on the ground -- but this lamb in England is pretty sure of the season. Apparently he's just been released into the field for the first time. I think he's saying to himself, "WHOA! My legs are strong! Being a lamb is AWESOME!"
