A seagull lands on a sailor’s hat and takes a sip of his coffee. The sneaky bird perches on the head of Norwegian tour guide Ole Martin Dahle then dips its beak into his mug for a morning caffeine fix. The seagull was photographed by 55 year old professional photographer Andrew Astbury, whilst on a week-long trip in the county of Nord-Trondelag in Norway.

A baby wombat has made a full recovery after being found in the pouch of her dead mother’s body. After noticing the animal at the side of the road, a quick thinking passerby decided to check if the poor creature was carrying any offspring. Incredibly, despite its mother being struck by a car, the teeny critter was found shivering inside its pouch, still suckling at its mother teat. After an urgent phone call from a passerby to the local wildlife helpline, voluntary animal carer, Kim Hunter, 48 came to the rescue of the baby wombat and took it home.

A brown noddy hitches a ride on a pelican, waiting for its chance to claim any fish that the big-billed bird catches in the Itabaca Channel, Galapagos Islands. The pelican lost out to his un-invited guest but it seemed un-phased as this is a typical occurence between the two.

cowboykiller:

This is Bobby (rocket nose) and Ani (spotty face). They are a 6 year old (born February 2008) super bonded Calico sibling pair currently living in Brooklyn. They need a new home!

Both are in perfect health, good litter box manners, playful, extremely cuddly, and good eaters. They need to be re-homed due to no fault of their own. There is a new person in the household with debilitating allergies. This was a very hard decision for their person to make, but they’re just not getting the attention and affection they need in their current situation. 

They are great with children, not great with dogs, and would be OK to live with other cats. 

I’ve known them both since they were tiny handfuls and they are really incredibly sweet and playful and mischievous and really, really ridiculously good looking. If I could take them in I absolutely would.

They’re not micro-chipped, but their person would absolutely assume the cost and have this done with their new person’s info. They’re up to date on all their shots and tests. Their person is willing to transport them pretty far for the perfect home - anywhere drive-able from NYC. Help with food and litter costs for the first year would also be possible if someone wanted to take them in but had limited resources.

If you’d like more information - or more pictures! Or would just like to meet them in person (they’re in Bed Stuy in Brooklyn, a few short blocks from the A/C at Nostrand) please drop a note in my ask-box.

Please reblog!

Thank you!
