Handpainted Animal Pillows by Francesca Mosmea

A self-proclaimed “crazy cat lady,” artist Francesa Mosmea has an affinity for drawing cats. As one of her favorite subjects, Mosmea handprints each feline figure using a delicate hand, which mimics the effect of pencil on paper.

Each animal illustration is delicately composed on white cotton fabric with the help of permanent non-toxic colors. The adorable pillows usually take the shape of the animal silhouettes, which delivers a playful and super cute decorative item. Find them in her Etsy shop.

The heirs of Dolly the sheep are enjoying a healthy old age, proving cloned animals can live normal lives and offering reassurance to scientists hoping to use cloned cells in medicine.

Dolly, cloning’s poster child, was born in Scotland in 1996. She died prematurely in 2003, aged six, after developing osteoarthritis and a lung infection, raising concerns that cloned animals may age more quickly than normal offspring.

Now researchers have allayed those fears by reporting that 13 cloned sheep, including four genomic copies of Dolly, are still in good shape at between seven and nine years of age, or the equivalent of 60 to 70 in human years.

“Overall, the results are suggesting that these animals are remarkably healthy,” said Kevin Sinclair of the University of
Nottingham, whose team reported their findings in the journal Nature Communications on Tuesday.

You can have soul connections (or a soulmate) that are pets/animals. They might know you the moment you meet, and maybe you know them too. They’re your best friend instantly. You find them beautiful, and unique to others. You have a connection others can’t have, and that makes you both special to each other.

Treasure these spirits. Love your old quiet friends.

Birbs don’t need planes; they can fly. So instead the airports are their playgrounds.
