Photos Of What Death Row Inmates Requested As Their Last Meals

Henry Hargreaves photographed what death row prisoners in America requested as their last meal in his "No Seconds" series, saying that his main goal was "to have the viewer identify with the prisoner through their meal request. 

I wanted the viewer to think of them as a person for a moment instead of them being anonymous."

20 Hilarious Pictures Of Wet Cats

Because cats are widely considered to be the cool and cute overlords of the internet, we thought it was about time to bring them down a notch by showing you just how silly cats look when they get wet. 

The two things almost everyone knows about cats from an early age is that they love mice and hate water. Many cats do indeed hate water, especially house cats. Cats in colder environments hate water because they can’t regulate their own temperature quite as effectively when their fur is wet. The wet fur weighs them down as well, and because they are used to bathing themselves with their tongues, many might not even see the sense in taking a bath. 

Although it doesn’t look like it in these pictures, cats are certainly capable of loving water. Most kittens that are put into contact with water from an early age won’t fear it nearly as much as cats that only get cold and wet when it rains. Turkish Vans and big cats in hot and arid environments are all fans of water, taking swims to keep cool. 

While outdoor cats may need a bath from time to time when they get dirty, most house cats won’t need baths often, if at all. As long as your cat grooms itself regularly, it will stay very clean. More over, if water gets into the ear of a cat that’s not used to it, it can lead to infections or other troubles. So as funny-looking as these photos might be, please don’t give your cat a bath unless they actually need one!

Toddler And Dog With Same Brain Condition Find A Friend In Each Other

Dylan, 2, and Frank, a Chihuahua-dachshund mix, met two weeks ago. 

They were introduced because they both have hydrocephalus, a condition where excessive fluid accumulates in the brain and sometimes causes the skull to expand, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.



Dylan has had 15 brain surgeries. Therefore, he's spent a lot of time at the Children's Hospital of Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University. That's how he met Frank, whose owner, Stacy Metz is an administrative assistant in the Department of Neurosurgery, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.



Metz adopted Frank last August, thanks to the Richmond Animal League (RAL), the organization that had placed the puppy with a foster family after he suffered a seizure at 8 weeks old, putting him at risk for euthanasia, according to the Times-Dispatch.

"We really didn't hesitate [to adopt Frank] because we are fully aware of the condition," Metz told HuffPost. "We wanted the little guy to get a chance on life."

When Dylan's family found out about Frank through a friend, Lipton immediately reached out to Metz. On Feb. 8, the two boys met at the RAL.

"It was a toddler and a puppy," Lipton told HuffPost. "And a whole lot of energy." 

"It was an emotional moment," Metz added, "just knowing that Frank was able to make Dylan laugh and smile."
Just a little bit tired!  I had so much fun with Dylan at RAL!

What Happens When You Put Two Pit Bulls In A Photo Booth. Not Photoshopped!

Photographer Lynn Terry decided to put two beautiful pitbulls together in a photo booth and the rest, as they say, is history. Bumper landed a big, wet, sloppy kiss on her friend Willis’ cheek for the world to see.

Bumper was rescued from a dog fighter by Mutts n Stuff and Willis was born to a mother that had been involved in the largest dog-fighting ring bust in human history – 500 dogs were rescued, including Willis’ mother.

A few years ago, Terry also took these adorable photo booth shots of two more dogs that had been rescued from dog fighting rings by Mutts n Stuff as well – Tucker and Petunia.

He told Upworthy, "My hope is that not only are my images inspiring romance for the queer community, but inspiring the acceptance of our romance on a global scale."
