PHOTO MOMENT: Gorgeous Grandma Day

 

It’s cats that help power the internet, and nearly everyone goes mushy at the sight of a kitty doing or wearing human things. Today’s Photo Moment is this rugged marmalade tabby who has a soft spot for their granny, not to mention fashionably great taste in bibs too 😀

This tweet was made by Top Ten Blogger theverybesttop10.com, a long-time member of the HEM Community. Based in Wales, his blog covers the top ten of amazing things. Recently they’ve made listicles of the world’s oldest casinos, most expensive schools in the U.K. and the world’s ten most expensive postcards!. I’d highly recommended visiting their fascinating and very navigable blog. Who knows, it could become one of the Top Ten websites in your browser’s bookmarks list.

I’ll leave you with some words from TTB themselves, on the subject of Gorgeous Grandma Day: ” Many people around the world say that we do not do enough to honour our elderly. Just as well, then, that days such as Gorgeous Grandma Day exist. Now that you know the day exists, hopefully, you are already making plans to spend it with your own gran.

Oh yeah, and one more thing, cat food is a nightmare to wipe off a bib. Let’s hope Tiddles is a clean eater!

A LOT OF CUDDLES: New York City’s largest cat

New York, UNITED STATES
VIJAY SHAH

New York city is famous for its big breakfasts and tiny apartments. It is also a haven for pet-lovers and one cat has certainly taken local, and now international media by storm.

His name is Samson. A Maine Coon cat (normally a hefty, but not giant-sized breed), the chubby tabby has a length of 4 feet (1.22 metres) and weighs 28 lbs (12.7 kg) compared with the average housecat’s 5-10 lbs (2.3-4.5 kg). He in fact is larger and weighs more than most toddlers and practically carpets his owner, when Samson lies on him. And the crazy thing is, Samson may not have yet finished growing.

Though he should really be named Goliath, Samson, aged four, is in fact highly friendly and playful and spends his days lounging around and batting his paw at mini-drones with owner and ‘daddy’ Jonathan Zurbel, in the district of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, where he attracts a lot of attention when he is taken outside in his distinctive green buggy. Samson has even being reimagined as a body positivity icon, and despite many people assuming that the cat is in a bad way due to his size, Zurbel’s local vet has given him a rating of good health.

PHOTO MOMENT: Long hugs

 

“Sometimes, that’s all you need.”

A hug is a good way to release feel-good endorphins into the bloodstream. It is also a quick, simple and ‘warm and fuzzy’ way of reinforcing human relationships (and human-other animal ones too). Even for me, though I’m not the most touchy-feely person, a warm and firm hug from a loved one just makes me feel so much better.

So go ahead, give someone you care about a hug today. It is free after all.
