Feeling stressed? Try a little #KittenTherapy!

This video is sure to make your day! What happens when you take some stressed out humans and offer them a bit of relaxing therapy? A surprise that is full of adorableness, that’s what! And, it looks like it worked too. Who could stay stressed after playing with a bunch of adorable kittens?

In true SoulPancake fashion, they built the world’s first ever kitten therapy office for chronic
stress cases. “Patients” step into a clear glass therapy office where they are guided into a
peaceful meditation. Once their eyes are closed and their mind is beginning to clear, the
“therapists” (tiny kittens) burst from the wall, providing instant stress relief with belly laughs and awwww’’s. The video is full of squee-worthy moments, urban art installation inspiration, and the feel-good vibes that SoulPancake has become known for. Oh, and did we mention the kittens are beyond cute?!

2014_BUSCH_GARDENS_RHINO_PUMPKINS_05Busch Gardens® Tampa’s black rhinoceros, Forest, enjoyed some pumpkins in preparation for Halloween. As part of his daily enrichment, the animal care team provided several pumpkins for Forest! Doesn’t it look like he is having the time of his life?!

See the video on the Busch Gardens YouTube channel.

Black rhinos are considered endangered by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, and are found in central and southern Africa. Black rhinos have a prehensile lip that is used much like a finger to select and pick the leaves and twigs they prefer.

Felt Dogs (aka the cutest book ever).

Felt DogsFelt Dogs is an adorable craft book that teaches you how to make little dogs from felt. The book is packed full of different breeds to delight any dog lover.

The book teaches a technique called needle felting. There is a list of all the tools and supplies that you will need to make cute dogs. I also loved the step by step photos in the book, which makes it easy for beginners or experts to follow.

And of course, the book is full of such darling photos it’s easy to forget that the book is about crafting. I’ve spent plenty of time just looking at the photos and dreaming about making the cute little dogs.

Sadly I could not find any proper felt (at least not locally). I’m dying to try my hand at making a dog or two, so I’m not giving up. Since I can’t show you one that I have made just yet, be sure to have a look at this fun felt dog making night they had at Chronicle Books!

FeltDogs_3bAren’t they just too cute?

Disclosure: I received a copy of Felt Dogs in exchange for my review.

Skittles’ Surgery GoFundMe

Skittles 1 Reader Bridget needs our help! On April 15th, 2014, Skittles required emergency surgery due to an intestinal obstruction. Thank goodness, he is out of surgery and healing now. But, due to the surgery being an emergency performed by a specialist, his medical bills are through the roof.

So far, Bridget has raised over 50% from friends, family, and animal lovers from all over, which is amazing! Now, she hopes to reach more animal lovers to help fundraise the remaining amount. Any funds that are raised in excess of Skittles’ medical bills will be donated to Cape Ann Animal Aid, a no-kill animal shelter in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

If you have some extra money and would like to help Skittles please click here.
