Experts advise against participating in TikTok trend

A popular sound to lip-sync to on TikTok is Sandra Oh’s iconic scene from “The Princess Diaries,” and it’s causing animal experts to panic.The scene stars Oh as Vice Principle Geraldine Gupta answering the phone and saying, “Gupta. Mhm, mhm, mhmm,” before hanging up and going, “the Queen is coming.”The trend involves people reenacting the scene by grabbing whatever’s closest to them to use as a phone, which in many cases is a pet cat.The cats don’t ever look like they’re in peril or a dangerous position, but vets are concerned that the trend could lead to a “misunderstanding” about how cats can be handled.Veterinarian Dr. Jessica May told Insider in an interview that after watching a couple of the videos, she noticed that the cats were not being held ...

Pit bull thinks he’s a cat and loves to climb on furniture

Mako is a 2-year-old pit bull that acts more like a cat than a dog. You can follow his exploration of elevated surfaces on Instagram at mako_thecatdog. His owners Bethany and Samatha Castiller got him from a rescue.“We joke that we didn’t really pick him, he picked us,” Bethany told The Dodo. “When we went to the rescue shelter he had his back against the cage so we started petting him and he looked over his shoulder and gave direct eye contact and we just fell in love with the little guy.”The dog rescue assured the family that Mako would get along with their cats but that was an understatement.

Couple tries to solve why deceased cat was mailed voter form: ‘All types of fraud’

When Ron Tims was going through his mail on July 8, an envelope made him do a double-take. It was a voter registration application addressed to his cat, Cody Tims, who had died 12 years ago.The Atlanta-based family was surprised — and very confused — to have received the form.“There’s a huge push but if they’re trying to register cats, I’m not sure who else they’re trying to register. I’m not sure if they’re trying to register dogs, mice, snakes,” Ron’s wife, Carol, told WAGA-TV.Georgia’s Secretary of State’s Office claimed that the registration letter did not come from them and must have been from a third-party. Groups have access to mailing lists to get names and addresses for mail-outs like these, but it’s unclear why Cody’s name was on any public, governm...
