“I wanna hold your hand.”
When you need a helping hand sometimes it comes from the most unlikely of places. When 2 blind kittens, Bruce and Willis, and an older blind cat, Helen, were all brought to the Faithful Friends shelter no one expected that they would have seeing eye dogs.

Kidnapping has never been so easy.
After sitting on a nest of eggs for a month, Hilda the hen got one wing-raising surprise. Instead of five cute chicks, the eggs hatched to reveal five fluffy ducklings! Despite the shock, Hilda was immediately in mommy mode, adopting the ducklings and treating them as her own.
“It was so surprising but lovely and she has proved to be very capable at raising them,” Philip Palmer, owner of the English farm where Hilda lives, told The Daily Mail. “Hilda doesn’t seem bothered at all — the ducklings follow her around just as chicks would.”
Palmer said the ducklings stay close to their “mom” and aren’t aware she’s any different from them. She isn’t quite aware the ducklings aren’t her own either.
“It is very sweet to see. The only way they will really notice the difference is when the ducks start swimming in the pond,” Palmer said.

Opening the cookie jar
Just when we thought that the best job in the world involved cuddling baby goats, we find out that being a “professional panda hugger” is a viable career choice. As of right now, China’s Giant Panda Protection and Research Centre has a spot available and the job description states: “Your work has only one mission: spending 365 days with the pandas and sharing in their joys and sorrows.” In other words, this job will pay you $32,000 (or £22,388) a year to cuddle with, feed, clean, and play with adorable baby pandas.
To land this incredible job, you must be at least 22 years old, have a basic knowledge of pandas, be able to write, and know how to take pictures. Job recruiter Ye Mingxin explains, “You need perseverance for this job. We expect that the applicants will be mainly white-collar workers from big cities. They are used to eating whatever they want, but inside the giant panda base, the choices will not be plentiful.” Despite these qualifications, employees will receive free meals, accommodation, and be able to use the organization’s car.
If this sounds like a dream job, you have until July 15th to apply for the position at fun.sohu.com. Shanghai, Chengdu, and Guangzhou will also be hosting recruiting drives.
