Cat Scratch: Can Your Cat Make You Go Blind? [Video]

This may sound rather random.  But I have two confessions of love to make.  #1- I love my CNN app.  #2- I love my cat, Oprah.  But on Saturday morning, a story on my CNN app  made me look at my cat Oprah and "Hmmmmm???"  Yes, I stumbled across a story about a Toledo, Ohio woman who says that her cat licked her and then she went blind in one eye. Is this possible?  Is Cat Scratch Fever a real thing?  Holy Furballs, Batman (or Catman)!  It appears so.

Ellie the Bichon Frise: The Baby Bird Hunting Machine [Video]

The other day I looked out the patio door and saw Ellie trying to power-jump the tree in the backyard.  They say "white men can't jump" but this white dog has pogo sticks for legs.  I had no idea what she was doing until I realized she had treed an innocent and defenseless baby bird.  The bird was perched on the bark and in no immediate danger, so I decided to grab my iPhone and film Ellie's leaps and bounds.  I don't mean to brag, but this dog is really cute and oddly athletic for her size and stature.  Well, my plans to video and capture this adorable glimpse of nature nearly turned into a snuff film when the bird made an ill-advised run for it.

WBKR Sales Executive Rescues a Hummingbird with CPR [Photos]

This is pretty incredible.  WBKR sales associate Bill Eidson was sitting on a patio bench at his home Saturday afternoon when he heard something hit a window in his house.  He quickly realized that a hummingbird had flown into the window and knocked itself unconscious.  In fact, the little guy fell right there on the patio.  So, Bill (channeling a little Dr. Doolittle) went to work and tried to revive the hummingbird.  And, you know what?  It worked!  Here's how he did it!
