Kidnapped Baby Otters Were Neglected But They’ve Been Saved and Get Freedom and Food For First Time

It is truly a tragic reality, that in so many places throughout the world, poachers hunt wild animals in order to illegally sell them to people wanting exotic pets.  It is common for babies to be kidnapped; they often go into shock, suffer from hunger and dehydration, and die before being sold. It is horrible that so many animals are taken and kidnapped from their natural habitat and frequently taken from their mothers before they are developmentally ready. This is just so heartbreaking especially when you see how adorable, sweet and innocent these itty bitty baby otters.

Thanks to the many animal-lover/advocates, like TV host Frank Cuesta, whom you will see in the video below, many animals get rescued and returned to the wild.  Cuesta resides in Thailand, where he hosts a show that has been compared to Steve Irwin. He explores, helps, studies and rescues wildlife just as the late great legend Steve Irwin did.

Cuesta is the hero of this story of a rescue of two baby otters, after he was tipped off as to their location, before they could be sold on the black market. He headed to the location and somehow managed to save them and get them away from the bad people who wanted to harm these poor sweet fur babies.

Having studied veterinary medicine, Cuesta knows that these orphaned otter pups not only have to have limited human exposure, but actually need to be trained to be afraid of people before being reintroduced into the wild.  This is necessary for their safety and for sustaining the otter population. Luckily Cuesta knows exactly what to do and these babies should soon be back in the wild and their natural habitat.

Unless you speak Spanish you won’t understand exactly what Cuesta is tenderly saying to the pups he has saved, but you will get the gist of it.  Hearing the darling babies squeaking as they are finally fed, is simply joyful, as is the fact that they will safely be returned to the wild. The sounds of pure happiness emanating from their adorable little faces made my heart melt into a million pieces. Have you ever heard a sound so adorable in your life? Let us know in the comments

THIS Picky Pup Refuses To Eat Her Dry Food But Her Dad Comes Up With THIS Unexpectedly GENIUS Trick!

image via –

Man’s best friend has just a few simple needs in life and they all revolve around eating. Whether a dog is playing, cuddling, or sleeping, when they hear the sound of dinner being opened and prepared, they come running. Some of the more voracious pup’s appetites appear to have no limits and they will scarf up any and all treats or food scraps thrown their way, then continue on to eat grass, rocks, and whatever else they come across.

In direct contrast to these hungry dogs are the rare few who have very weak appetites and are extremely picky eaters. This type of dog doesn’t get all that excited around dinner time and when a bowl of food is placed under its nose, it doesn’t dig right in. Instead, they sniff their meals hesitantly before pushing the morsels around a bit and maybe they take a few bites, then walk off unimpressed.

When a dog lacks an appetite or is just not at all interested in their dinner, what’s an owner to do? It’s definitely concerning, we all want whats best for our canine companions, and one man who was faced with this exact problem came up with an ingenious solution.

YouTube user Delaypat explained that he’d been having feeding issues with his dog Luna who falls on the very picky side of the eating spectrum. No matter what he did Luna would not eat and he tried all kinds of approaches to feeding her.

He offered her different types of food and presented it in all sorts of unique ways on plates and bowls before he finally found a method that worked. It turned out that Luna, a sweet and calm Golden Retriever, prefers to have her meals home cooked before she tucks into them.

The video Delaypat uploaded of their daily feeding ritual is quite impressive. In order to get Luna excited for dinner he first prepares her bowl of food and then calls her over to the kitchen. Once she’s present the show begins.

The bowl is placed in the oven, which is never actually turned on, and the timer is set for one minute. As her food “cooks” he excitedly remarks to Luna about how her dinner is almost ready, building up her anticipation to eat. Once the oven timer goes off the food is finally ready to be served.

That’s when Luna finally shows her excitement as she prances around while licking her lips, keeping her eyes on the bowl while trying to sniff at it. The moment it’s placed on the floor in front of her she digs right in.

There you have it, one truly excellent way to trick a picky dog into eating!

You’re Probably Prepping Pasta Wrong. Here’s An Awesome Life Hack To Make Pasta Without a Colander.

Whether you’re in the mood for some Italian cuisine or you’re pressed for time and need to make dinner in a hurry, there’s nothing quicker and easier to make than pasta. Most people always keep on hand at least a few boxes of pasta and a jar or two of tomato sauce. In fact, they’re considered basic food staples in many households and who doesn’t love a home cooked plate of spaghetti! Pasta is simply delicious and easy to make. Plus, if you ever need to feed a hungry group of people, a big pot of pasta and sauce is the perfect meal to serve.

All that you really need to do is boil up some water, drop in the pasta, strain it, and dump some sauce in with the cooked noodles, right? Not exactly, if you’re making it that way then you’re doing it wrong. If you want to make perfect pasta that tastes amazing, you have to do it the right way. The following tips covered in this video clip will help you do exactly that, so check them out and learn the proper way on how to cook and sauce pasta.

1. Add salt to the water, just before it begins to broil and before you place the pasta in the pot. This will make your pasta end up tasting a lot more flavorful and elevate it to a restaurant-quality level.

2. Do not add in olive oil to the water. If you add oil, the sauce will end up not sticking to the pasta, throwing the taste and texture off.

3. Don’t follow the instructions on the box. Each type of pasta is different in regards to how long it takes to cook. It’s better to taste taste and monitor it as you go along, that way it ends up how you like and prefer it. As for box instructions, oftentimes you don’t need to cook it as long as recommended.

4. Get the correct type of sauce for your pasta. If you plan on pairing it with a healthier sauce, use wider noodles. If you are using a thinner or runny sauce, use pasta with folds, like campanelle or rotini. They work great for holding thinner sauces on.

5. Before you drain the pasta, make sure to save at least half a cup of the starchy water it was cooked in. Then, once you’ve strained it, cook the pasta in the sauce and add in the starchy water you set aside. Cook it all together until the sauce is reduced and ready to serve.

6. Finally, if you plan on adding any additional fresh herbs or spices to the mix, make sure to always add them in with the pasta and sauce last. This will help keep the flavor fresh.

The next time you make pasta for dinner, be sure to try out all these tips and it will end up tasting perfect and absolutely wonderful.

This Is What Happens To Your Brain If You Eat One Pickle a Day For a Month!

I love a good sour pickle, but had no idea that when naturally fermented, pickles could be the answer to HAPPINESS!  This has nothing to do with the enjoyment one gets from their taste; pickles, like other naturally fermented foods actually have the ability to relieve anxiety and thus produce greater experience of joy.  This is known as the “anxiolytic effect.”

Reported by “Smithsonian Magazine”, neurosis and anxiety can be indirectly altered by consuming pickles and other fermented foods, such as sauerkraut.  This effect was scientifically studied at the College of William and Mary, by researcher Matthew Hilimire.

His results showed a significant reduction in social anxiety and neuroticism, in individuals who ate fermented foods daily.  This “anxiolytic effect” was published in the “National Center for Biotechnology Information.”

The video you are about to watch below, does a fantastic job of explaining this phenomenon.  It turns out that the stomach is actually a “second brain!”  You may have heard that people who suffer from depression and benefit from anti-depressants, do so because their “serotonin” (which has been depleted) gets replenished.

Amazingly, 90% of the serotonin in our bodies is found in the stomach.  Fermented foods have a positive effect on our digestive system due to their richness in probiotics, which in turn increases our serotonin!

It has been determined by scientists that a healthier stomach leads to a healthier brain.  This occurs because of the boost in serotonin which increases happiness, by promoting healthier thinking and reducing distorted anxiety-laden thinking.

For a fuller explanation of this wonderful link between pickles and fermented foods and their impact on our sense of well-being, enjoy the following video.

They Feed Their Pups In Opposite Corners But Watch What The Adopted One On The Left Does!

Little Bonnie, a Chihuahua, was luckily rescued by Jeannine who adopted her from the Sato Rescue Organization.  So much good can be done and lives saved when people make it their business to care about animals that are homeless. Often adopted dogs can be skittish and be fearful of abandonment and being treated badly.

One can only hope that whatever damage has been done can be remedied with time, after entering their “forever homes”.  This video shows that not only was Bonnie happy to be in her new family, but she showed moxie and dexterity that was incredible. Bonnie had joined not only a family of humans but a fellow canine.

Thinking it was best to place their dog dishes at opposites sides of the kitchen, Bonnie proved otherwise.  This delightful video shows her taking two bites of her food, pausing, and then swiftly picking up her dish with her mouth and backing up to where she could join her new buddy.  She was determined to never eat alone again.  Enjoy this adorable video and watch Bonnie do her thing and never drop a morsel of food!
