30 Seconds Of Talking Cats That'll Make You Smile

Why should you adopt a pet from a shelter instead of buying one in a store?

When you adopt a pet from a shelter, you're saving its life. You're ALSO reducing the demand for pet-store puppies and kittens, which are usually supplied by cruel cat and puppy mills. This means that by adopting one puppy or kitten from a shelter, you're potentially saving hundreds or maybe thousands of other cats and dogs from that experience.

Rescue shelters are full of beautiful, healthy cats and dogs. You'll be sure to find one with a personality to match your own.


Just look at how ~*cute*~ they are!

FACT CHECK TIME:

THE SAD NEWS:

  • 6 million to 8 million cats and dogs enter shelters each year, according to the ASPCA.
  • So there's no need to breed more.
  • 3 million to 4 million cats and dogs are adopted each year from shelters, according to the Humane Society.
  • So if we do the math, we know what happens to the rest.

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

Last Christmas, Alex got exactly what he always wanted: a new "robo" arm.

Sure, it's basically like having a second hand, but it also does something equally important: It totally reflects his personality. How? It's a "Transformers"-themed arm.
