Earlier this week, a woman in New Zealand came home to find a furry, adorable surprise — a baby seal pup was cozied up on the corner of her couch, blissfully sleeping. The pup had apparently traveled from the nearby Bay of Plenty, through the busy streets of the town of Tauranga, and wandered into Annette Swoffer’s home. The little guy traveled, say experts, at least five kilometers from his native habitat to end up as a couch potato. Weirdly, this isn’t the first time this seal pup — dubbed Lucky — has wandered far from home. Local residents have called authorities about the wandering seal two other times. And Lucky is hardly the only wild animal to show up where he’s least expected. Read on for some more bizarre stories of animals coming in from the wild.
We’re still not 100 percent sure if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are a couple. But it sure looks like they’ve adopted a puppy together. The two supposedly got the little guy from a shelter in Baton Rouge, LA, and named him Bear. Nikki Reed was the one who let the news of their co-pet ownership slip saying, “I didn’t even know they got a dog.” When reporters pounced on the use of the word “they,” she said, “Oh no, it’s Rob’s dog.” But then Robert and Kristen took him to the vet together. And brought him to set in Vancouver. Now, Kristen is caring for the dog in New York while Robert is in London promoting “Water for Elephants.”
So my question is: is it a good idea for couples to adopt pets together before making things permanent? I’m thinking of a good friend who now gets her pooch every other week after she and her boyfriend broke up. [E! Online, Hollywood Life] Keep reading »
