Sharie Monsam and her niece Kendra are spreading warmth in their community by leaving hats and scarves on statues in downtown Mesa, AZ. This is the fourth year that the women have collected hats and scarves from family, friends, neighbors, and thrift stores for this effort. The items quickly disappear, taken by individuals living on the streets who are in need of warmth……. Last month, someone near Fort Myers, Florida found a pet pigeon that went missing 15 months ago during Hurricane Ian. He was outside a hair salon, and they could tell he wasn’t a wild animal. They found a bracelet on his ankle with a phone number on it, and got him back to his owners just in time for Christmas……And finally…….
Oakley, a little white dog in OK, got attacked by two coyotes, and a CAT saved his life. They attacked him in his owners’ backyard and pinned him down, but the family’s black cat Binx ran in and chased them off. It happened in late November, and Oakley ended up needing stitches. The vet originally thought he might lose a leg too, but that didn’t happen. He’s fully recovered now, and Binx wasn’t injured.
