    An off-duty sheriff's lieutenant, his wife and a good Samaritan helped rescue a kitten after he ran through traffic on the 60 Freeway in the Diamond Bar area and then got stuck in the engine compartment of a stopped vehicle, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Wednesday. Lt. Min Dinh, a 31-year veteran of the department, and his wife, retired sheriff's Lt. Jenny Ha, were driving home from church on the westbound 60 near the Grand Avenue exit on Sunday when they saw a woman sitting on a blanket in the emergency lane. The couple pulled over to help...

    This adorable cat was born with a flawless split of grey and black fur divided almost perfectly down the middle of her face. The rare markings on the British short hair, pictured at her home in France, are thought to be the result of two embryos fusing together. She has both light grey and black fur on her face, separated evenly in a remarkably straight line.

    This is the adorable moment a sneaky cat broke two misbehaving dogs out of a pet carrier their owner placed them in for acting up. In the clip Tuxedo the cat wrestles with the door, pulling it sideways to create a slight gap as the camera zooms in on his antics. The opening proves too small for the two pooches trapped inside, so the black and white cat pulls the entire door off, finally releasing the canine inmates.

    When your cat knocks your favorite coffee mug off the counter, does it use its left paw or its right?There's no need to sacrifice any drink-ware for the answer; your cat's gender should tell you enough. According to a small feline-behavior study published in the journal Animal Behaviour, female cats are significantly more likely to be right-paw-dominant, while male cats typically favor their left paws. And while this bit of purr-snickety trivia might seem insignificant, your cat's dominant paw may be an indicator of the animal's well-being, said study author Deborah Wells, a reader at Queen's University Belfast's School of...

He was 90 years old and had been in poor health for several years. The widely distributed photo of Praytor with the kitten would prove to be more that just an endearing moment of humanity captured in the midst of a brutal war, it would later save him from being court martialed.

  • Holiday pet precautions Keeping furry friends safe during holiday hustle

    SIERRA VISTA While enjoying holiday festivities with family and friends, there are a few basic precautions pet owners should take to keep their furry companions safe and healthy. One of the biggest things we see this time of year is pets getting into areas where chocolate is stored, said Veterinarian Pam Drake of New Frontier Animal Medical Center. People wrap chocolates intended for gifts and put them under the tree where dogs get into them. Dark chocolate, which is toxic to dogs, and chocolate-covered coffee beans are two big holiday culprits, Drake said. Also, avoid feeding your dogs goodies...
