Meet a Very Outdoorsy Cat

Here’s a good story and an even better video written/created by Enjoy!

“I spent a week cross-country skiing in Norway a couple of winters ago and it was one of the hardest, most exhausting sports I’ve ever tried. By the third day, I no longer feared being eaten by wolves and was actually sort of looking forward to it. But maybe that wouldn’t have been the case if Jesper the cat had been with me.

The adventurous Norwegian kitty has no problem running in the cross-country tracks while his owner effortlessly skis beside him. (Actually, being Norwegian seems to be the key to successful cross-country skiing).

But Jesper doesn’t limit himself to just the cross-country trails. He’s like a Swiss Army knife (or a Scandinavian one?) for being outdoorsy and has accompanied his owner on hikes, fishing trips, camping excursions and — perhaps the most nerve-wracking experience of all — Jesper has flown economy class. I don’t know about him but, yeesh, I’m tired.

The Great Netherlands Horse Rescue

The Great Netherlands Horse Rescue
By Chris, Five Star Ranch Staff Writer

The biggest horse story that came out of The Netherlands in 2006 was the amazing tale of the Great Netherlands Horse Rescue. A group of about 100 horses were stranded on a small piece of land when the waters rose unexpectedly after a fierce storm. The horses were stranded for three days on a tiny sliver of land. Firemen and animal welfare officers brought the horses food and water to keep up their strength. As wind and icy rain blasted the horses, they huddled together with their rear ends facing the wind. Finally on the third day, the great rescue was made.
The video of the horse rescue is incredibly moving. The combination of the horse footage and music will bring happy tears to any horse lover’s eyes. The sound starts about a minute into the video.

Family Saves Roadside Piglet from Freezing to Death in Blizzard

Winter storm Jonas pummeled much of the East Coast, rivaling some of the biggest snowstorms on record there.

It was during that blizzard that the Smith family was traveling from the Whitetail ski resort back to their hotel about 20 miles away when dad Perry spotted a white, pink mass by the side of the road in the freezing cold snow.

He knew it was an animal, he just wasn’t sure what kind or whether it was still alive, so he and his family turned back to investigate.

At this point, I’m already sold on this family. So many people would’ve shrugged it off and kept driving– remaining warm and cozy in their heated car. But not the Smiths.

Perry told BuzzFeed News, “My inital thought was it was a raccoon walking along the side of the road. Let’s go back and take a look.”

Once they spotted the animal, son Perry Smith Jr., who was in the passenger’s seat, rolled down the window. Dad asked, “What is that thing?” and the son replied, “Dad, I think it’s a pig.”

As daughter Catherine told ABC 7 News, once they shined a light on the situation, she said, “Oh my goodness. It’s a pig!”

Knowing there are parents like this, teaching their kids by example what it means to live a compassionate life—doesn’t that just warm your heart?
