Fill that cat with dog blood, stat!


Who says dogs and cats can’t be friends? When her cat ingested rat poi­son last Fri­day night, a New Zealand woman rushed the feline to the vet. But the blood lab­o­ra­tory was closed, so the cat’s blood type couldn’t be deter­mined, and the ani­mal needed an imme­di­ate trans­fu­sion. “He was dying,” the owner tells 3news. “We didn’t have time for the cat blood to arrive.” So the vet­eri­nar­ian called a friend, who agreed her dog would serve as blood donor. Rory received blood from black Labrador Macy, and man­aged to make it through with no appar­ent side effects. Cats don’t reject dog blood because they don’t have anti­bod­ies that do so, mean­ing a cross-species trans­fu­sion could buy a feline enough time to regen­er­ate its own blood cells, 3news explains.

A Wis­con­sin woman was expos­ing her breasts as she drove a motor­cy­cle with no hands on a Wis­con­sin high­way last week. Author­i­ties who were chas­ing the woman on Inter­state 43 claim she was dri­ving errat­i­cally and con­stantly chang­ing speeds, going as slow 15 mph on the 60 mph high­way. The chase con­tin­ued until the woman lost con­trol of the motor­cy­cle and crashed. When police approached she was report­edly inco­her­ently talk­ing about reli­gion. The woman was taken to a hos­pi­tal in spite of her claims that she she wasn’t injured. She was report­edly wear­ing a patch used for severe pain and had taken Oxycontin.

A stoned intruder man­aged to get aboard Germany’s equiv­a­lent of Air Force One, and secu­rity offi­cials can take only two pos­i­tives from the mess: The jet was empty at the time, and the guy appar­ently had no inter­est in get­ting the fully fueled plane into the air. Instead, he staged an epic one-man bash aboard the Air­bus used by Angela Merkel, reports Der Spiegel. The intruder, iden­ti­fied as a body­builder named Volkan T, “stripped down to his under­pants, sprayed fire extin­guisher foam around the ele­gant cream and beige inte­rior, pushed but­tons in the cock­pit, released an inflat­able emer­gency slide and danced on the wing of the Air­bus 319. “Volkan got onto the parked plane by climb­ing up on a wing and then through an emer­gency exit, author­i­ties say. After he finally tripped an alarm, the army went on its high­est stage of alert and sur­rounded the jet. But it still took four hours to arrest the intruder, who was armed with mar­i­juana and ecstasy pills and refused entreaties to leave. Finally, author­i­ties rolled up steps and sent in a police dog, who bit Volkan on the leg and brought the party to an end. The plane will be out of com­mis­sion for sev­eral weeks with an esti­mated $133,000 in damage.
