We don’t generally have a LOT of Hippo stories here on C.O., because well we don’t. But you HAVE to see this story about Jessica, who was separated from her Mom :( after a flood. Not exactly sure where this IS, but they’ve got a big river in the backyard, so it’s all good!

Now, you’d think a Bebeh Sea Ottersons would instinctively know how to swim, right? Nope. They can float, but swimming is a whole ‘nuther kettle of…well, fish. Or otters. Anyway, here is another video in our week long Sea Otter Appreciation Week series via Monterey Bay Aquarium, on just HOW #696 learns how to swim!
(Warning: the part where #696 gets towed through the water is positively KILLER. Speakers UP for this one, folks.)
And just ’cause we’re in the mood for some swimming, let’s roll Dori out.
“I volunteer with TAAG (Transylvania Animal Alliance Group) and we have a very special kitten in our care that we think people would love to see. This is Clark, and he was found paralyzed at 4 weeks old. He was taken in and has quickly become our little mascot because he has the most playful, fun personality and he never lets his limitations get him down. Clark is in a handmade mobility cart made for him by his foster mom and he zooms all over playing like any other kitten. Clark has gotten over one million views this week on Imgur and wants to keep his mission of showing the world that disabled pets are just as fun as every other going!” -Laura K.
