Feline Headwear

“These moggies were left feeling a little furtive after their eccentric owner got them to model her bizarre range of cat hats. The barmy bonnets were designed by businesswoman Carolyn Cooling of Houston, Texas, for her business Pampered Whiskers. Carolyn, who insists that wearing hats is ‘natural’ for cats, recruited the help of Dodger the tabby and Hoot the longhair as models, but they didn’t seem too impressed with the results.” w/ photos

Toe-Biting Piranhas

Thousands of flesh-eating piranhas have infested a river beach popular with tourists in western Brazil and have bitten at least 15 unwary swimmers… Officials in the city of Caceres in Mato Grosso state said this is the first time they have had a problem with piranhas at the Daveron beach on the Paraguay river, where the aggressive fish began schooling about two weeks ago. “People have got to be very careful. If they’re bitten, they’ve got to get out of the water rapidly and not allow the blood to spread,” firefighter Raul Castro de Oliveira told Globo TV’s G1 website. Elson de Campos Pinto, 22, was bitten Sunday. “I took a dip in the river and when I stood up, I felt pain in my foot,” Pinto told G1. “I saw that I had lost the tip of my toe. I took off running out of the river, afraid that I would be further attacked because of the blood. I’m not going back in for a long time.” w/ photo
