Portraits of Maine Coon Cats Who Look Like Majestic Mythical Creatures

Photographer Robert Sijka sheds new light on one of the internet’s most beloved creatures, cats. The Hong Kong-based creative focuses his attention on the Maine Coon, the largest breed of domesticated felines. Their distinctive appearance includes long fur that frames their face like a lion, in addition to a robust build—they can grow up to nearly four feet in length.

Despite this physically-imposing stature, Maine Coons have earned the nickname gentle giant with personalities that are akin to canines rather than other type of cats. This combination of looks and temperament makes them an ideal subject for Sijka’s dramatic images. Photographed against a dark background, the fuzzy felines entrance you with their striking yellow eyes and serious gaze.

There’s also an undeniably mythical quality to Sijka’s images. The cats’ perfectly-coiffed fur and soft lighting ignites our imagination, and it’s easy to picture them as majestic creatures in charge of guarding an old royal court.

This High School Cross-Country Team Takes Lonely Shelter Dogs On Their Morning Runs

Members of the St. Joseph High School cross-country team in California invited more than a dozen shelter dogs to accompany them on their morning run this week.

Each teammate was paired with a dog from the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter before heading out for a long run as one big happy group.

"I am not sure who was more excited and having the most fun ... the dogs or the kids," coach Luis Escobar said. "Either way, it was a great time and I am sure we will do it again sometime soon."

Hopefully this becomes a regular thing, and that it inspires other schools to try it out, too!

Watch the video here:

Got a pretty cool cross country team (& coach!). Taking dogs from the animal shelter on a Morning Jog! If you see a dog you like, go adopt!

THIS Grizzly Bear Slowly Climbs Up The Pool Ladder. What He Does Seconds Later? EPIC!

Grizzly bears are known to have an inherent need and ability to explore, and according to the “Western Wildlife Outreach” they are highly intelligent creatures. Both their memory and “smarts” are cultivated and exhibited by both their need and talent in tracking down sources of food.

Their ability to reason, as you will see in this AMAZING VIDEO below, isn’t limited to their survival instincts in getting fed. Can you imagine having all that fur on you in the heat of summer? I, myself can’t “bear” being out in summer heat without water to cool off; (forgive the pun)!

The “National Wildlife Federation” has done research on Grizzlies, that show their exceptional talent as SWIMMERS, but diving?!? Get ready to watch this bear cool off in an above ground pool, in the most astoundingly human-like movements, that will amaze and give you a good laugh for the day!

Please share this Hilarious video with your family and friends!

They Had No Idea How The Dog Would Do With The New Rescue Kitten

Golden retrievers are known for their kind nature. This dog breed is very loyal too hence its popularity.

When this family adopted a small abandoned kitten, they were not sure how their dog Keelo the golden retriever will react. Luckily, Keelo was delighted by the presence of his new furry fellow, Koda.

The kitten obviously needed a friend too. The dog doesn’t mind the teasing and playing of the kitten and it actually looks like his life is more interesting now.

The small kitten is grown now, but the friendship is stronger than ever. This is a great example of an animal friendship.
