Humans and animals can communicate and work together. Still makes the news. Still makes me smile.
Boko, a rescued stray, found a sweet way to return the favor.
College student Gabby Tropea realized she locked herself out of the house. She wasn't the only one concerned. "I got to the front door and Boko could hear me trying to get in." "He started crying and scratching at the door." "I went to the back patio and he saw me waiting there," Tropea said.
The patio door was secured with a stick to prevent it from being opened. It was no problem for the clever cat. "He started rubbing his face on the stick and I was encouraging him to mess with it. I was coaching him to lift it up," Tropea said. "He understood what I was trying to tell him and he started lifting it up!"

A unique colour variant was discovered in the Icelandic horse recently. The only horse yet to have this colour is the stallion Ellert from Baldurshagi. The colour is called "ýruskjóttur" in Icelandic which translates to drizzled skewbald or pied.
Genetic research was conducted on Ellert which shows that he has a new genetic trait which causes the coloration. This was reported in Iceland's agricultural magazine Bændablaðið.
Ellert is the only horse in the entire world of this colour, says Dr.Freyja Imsland, a genetic expert.
