Wuhan Virus Funny Relief: Elvis the cockatoo

Dr. Eowyn had posted this back in 2017 and I came across it again last night. Thought I would repost today because we all need something to make us smile right now! DCG

——————————

Strumming his guitar, a man sings Elvis Presley’s “Don’t be Cruel” to two cockatoos.

The male on the right really grooves to the song, nodding his head to the beat, but not the female on the left who keeps distancing herself from him. LOL

Then, beginning at the 1:10 mark, cockatoo Elvis goes whole-hog rock. LOL

Wild animals retake towns across the world as humans quarantine from Wuhan coronavirus

Across the world, as humans self-quarantine inside their homes, animals are retaking streets and towns.

In tourist spots where wildlife had depended on snacks from tourists, the animals are roaming the streets in search of food.

Below are pics of deer, sheep, horses, and even wild boar in Japan, Italy, and Poland.

Meanwhile, ducks are serenely swimming in the Trevi Fountain in Rome, Italy, once jampacked with tourists.

In Venice, the water in canals — now devoid of gondola traffic — is clear and full of fish.

And in Atlanta, Georgia, since the Georgia Aquarium is closed to humans, the Atlanta Humane Society put together a field trip for puppies. 😀

Animal gratitude: 550-lb. lion hugs woman who rescued him

The saying “no good deed goes unpunished” applies only to humans, but not to animals who never forget a kindness and repay it with gratitude.

Gary Sledge reports for Reader’s Digest that in 1999, Ana Julia Torres rescued a severely malnourished cub, Jupiter, from a traveling circus in Colombia.

She brought the cub to Villa Lorena, a wildlife animal rescue and sanctuary she established in 1984 in Cali, Colombia’s third-largest city.

She said that when Jupiter first came to the shelter, “I would enter his cage and hold him like a baby while I gave him his medicine. That is how our relationship started.”

12 years later, now weighing 550 pounds with a luxuriant mane and paws the size of dinner plates, Jupiter greets Torres by rising on his hind legs to 6½ feet and wrapping his huge forelegs around her in a gentle embrace while Torres plants a big kiss on his muzzle.

Torres says: “Jupiter’s hug is the most loving and sincere I’ve ever received in my life. I can see the shine in his eyes. I think of it as his way of telling me thank you.”

Animal cuties to de-stress from Wuhan coronavirus

 

This chicken plays (pecks) America the Beautiful on a toy piano!

 

Meanwhile, on the U.C. Berkeley campus, a pair of peregrine falcons have returned to nest atop the Campanile bell tower. The female falcon, Annie, has laid four eggs. Hatch day is expected to be April 18.

Here’s the link to a livecam to watch the falcons.

And lastly, the ultimate de-stressor! – A flock of hummingbirds take a bath.

Dog stands guard by his badly injured friend until help arrives

On the side of a busy road in Muscoy, southern California, were two homeless dogs: an injured female German Shepherd and a smaller red male dog patiently guarding his friend.

Hours passed as cars flew by until, finally, a driver stopped to help the two dogs.

Faith Easdale, a rescuer with Dream Fetchers: Project Rescue told The Dodo:  “We received a message she was lying on the side of the road. Marley [the German Shepherd] was in terrible distress and pain and breathing heavily. We weren’t even sure if she was going to make it.”

Marley’s protector, Murphy, refused to budge as Easdale and another rescuer lifted Marley into the car. Easdale said: “She was very heavy and hard to move, but we did it. Murphy wouldn’t leave her side on the street.”

Easdale rushed the dogs to the vet, where X-rays revealed Marley had a number of broken bones and was pregnant with 11 puppies. 

During those first few days, Murphy continued to wait by Marley’s side until, slowly, he realized that Marley was in good hands.

Easdale then set to work finding Murphy a good home.

Meanwhile, Marley gave birth to 11 healthy puppies. Even with two of her legs in casts, she was a loving, attentive mom.

It took two years, but with the help of her foster mom and a number of vets and carers, Marley has healed completely. Her new human family wrote on Facebook: “Marley is just as sweet and beautiful as the day we brought her home. She plays like she has never had a broken bone.”

To help other dogs like Marley and Murphy find loving homes, you can make a donation to Dream Fetchers: Project Rescue, here.
