A group of kittens were rescued from a farm whose life would otherwise been terminated to control population in the area. Fran Wylie, an animal rescuer from Canada, has gone on a quest in trapping as many feral and stray kitties as possible, hoping to give them the second chance they deserve. These tiny little gingers were scared after relocation to a new place until they were greeted by Alice, a rescue cat herself who took to them like her own.
Habitat loss is threatening the survival of wildlife worldwide. Natural environments are being destroyed and fragmented by human activity, wiping out species’ food sources, dispersing populations and leaving animals around the world literally homeless or displaced.

When a group of dog rescuers arrived at the market to show the dogs available for adoption, somebody had left 12 puppies on the street – 8 of them were approximately 5 weeks old. In shock, the rescuers didn’t know what to do. The group had recently canceled several adoption days at the market because of bad weather, so they were over their capacity with puppies still needing to be adopted out. Also, the abandoned puppies were so small that they needed to be fed every two hours, including at night.
Loyalty is faithfulness or a devotion to a person, country, group, or cause.There are many aspects to loyalty. Animals as pets have a large sense of loyalty to humans which may be more human-to-human loyalty. Famous cases include Greyfriars Bobby who attended his master’s grave for fourteen years; Hachiko, who returned to the place he used to meet his master every day for nine years after his death;and Foxie, the spaniel belonging to Charles Gough, who stayed by her dead master’s side for three months on Helvellyn in the Lake District in 1805 (the fact that Gough’s body was eaten by his dog was ignored in subsequent Romantic accounts of the story).
In the Mahabharata, the righteous King Yudhisthira, at the end of his life, appeared at the gates of Heaven. He had previously lost his brothers and his wife to death, and when he appeared at the gates his only remaining companion was a stray dog he had picked up along the way. The god Indra is prepared to admit him to Heaven, but refuses to admit the dog. Yudhistira refuses to abandon the dog, and prepares to turn away from the gates of Heaven. Then the dog is revealed to be the manifestation of Dharma, the god of righteousness and justice, and who turned out to be his deified self. Yudhistira enters heaven in the company of his dog, the god of righteousness. Yudhistira is known by the epithet Dharmaputra, the lord of righteous duty.

By now many of you must have heard the term “Bokeh”. If not than it is nothing but the blurred effect of light in a photography. Basically in Bokeh photography there are mainly two areas, one is the object area which is in focus and the other is the outer area which is out of focus. Blurring the out of focus area of light is the Bokeh effect. Many a times we hear terms like Good and Bad Bokeh. Good Bokeh means something that adds value to the photograph and a bad bokeh means an effect which creates confusion.
