Meet The Black Arrow, A Lady Superhero Who Saves Abused Pets

I love a superheroine as much as the next feminist, especially one who loves the fuzzy am-i-nals as much as I do. Meet “Black Arrow,” an anonymous British woman who fights evil in the form of people who abuse their pets. “I make sure people aren’t abusing their animals,” Black Arrow told The Sun newspaper. “I serve justice to those who deserve it. We stand for those who cannot, because we can.” (Unfortunately, the tabloid-eriffic Sun didn’t get a single detail on just how Black Arrow does this.) For six years, the London lass has stuck up for animals who are abused — presumably without crassly objectifying women in the process. You hear that, PETA?

2 In 3 Pet Owners Think Fluffy Is Psychic

Obviously, my cat Cleo can predict the future. She knows what team will win this year’s Super Bowl and who will be the victor in the 2012 presidential election. OK I’m totally lying. The only thing she is psychic about is when I’m going to feed her, and that’s mainly because the event is preceded by me opening the cabinet door. However, according to a new survey by Petside.com, I am one of the few who doesn’t think my pet has psychic abilities. According to the survey, 66 percent of pet owners report that their little ones know when bad weather is approaching, and 43 percent are sure that their pets can anticipate bad news. Another huge chunk say their pets can sense health problems. Which has me wondering—do you think your pet has a sixth sense? [via Newser]

Your Daily Cry: Faithful Dog Edition

Wayne Giroux was killed by a drunk driver nearly five months ago, but Wayne’s dog Spot doesn’t know that. Everyday, Spot sits along the roadside and waits for her owner to come home.

What Is Wrong With People? Part 53


There are some things you shouldn’t let in your house: a gang of rowdy teenagers, an axe murderer, and definitely not a bison. And yet! Jim and Linda Sautner of Alberta, Canada, have indeed adopted a pet bison that lives with them indoors. Bailey Jr. hangs out in the house, drinks water from the kitchen sink and does all manner of domesticated animal things. Jim says he still hasn’t housebroken Bailey Jr. (big shocker), which is a fair reminder that just because you CAN have a bison as a pet doesn’t mean you should. [CNN] Keep reading »
