The Turkish company Pugedon has recently introduced a vending machine that’s an innovative way to help both the environment and our furry friends. It releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well.

This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food. So, with a little financial investment, the simple machines do a lot of good. They provide a steady source of sustenance to the animals, many of which rely on caring residents to regularly feed them. It also encourages people to make a habit of recycling and help conserve our environment for future generations.

No fairytale prince
I’m no prince in shining armor. My shield is damaged and my helmet patched up. The years have certainly taken their toll. There have been battles and conflicts, some won, others lost. I find myself on my knees at times trying to catch a breath with a tired body and a weary mind. It’s more difficult to get up on some days than on others.
But I get up. Always. No matter how battered my body tells me it is, regardless of how disturbed my mind is with conflicting thoughts, I stand up. There is no other way for me. Defeat is not an option. Surrender is out of the question. I might not win the war when all is said and done but I will swing until the day when my body releases its last breath.
It’s all because of my heart. It never gives up. It’s what drives me from day to day, through the months and over the years. It’s this heart that has led me into trouble on more than one occasion, tempting me to lower my guard only for it to be attacked. But I wouldn’t change it for anything. It makes me who I am, how I live my life, the way I protect those who rely on me.
It beats hard and it beats loud. This is not a quiet and subtle heart. It makes it clear to me how it feels every single day. It pushes me. It provokes me. It reminds me to live. With fire that’s sometimes too hot and with passion that can get out of control. Just the way every heart should be.
No, I’m no prince from a fairytale and that’s perfectly fine with me. When I look into the mirror I’m proud of the battle hardened man I see. I’d rather go to war with him by my side anyway.

What is exciting is not for one person to be stronger than the other… but for two people to have met their match and yet they are equally as stubborn, as obstinate, as passionate, as crazy as the other.

My Adopted Cat Is The Best Climbing Partner Ever

Most pet cats will become timid or defensive when outdoors, but not Millie – after being adopted by her mountain-climbing owner Craig Armstrong, Millie has become a feline hiking and mountain-climbing legend.

“She literally loves to climb things… if there’s high-ground she’ll seek it out,” Armstrong said in an interview with Bored Panda. He had nothing but praise for the tenacious little athlete: “Generally she does best on slabby routes where she can scramble from ledge to ledge. She’s an incredible athlete but steep juggy routes just aren’t her thing. When bouldering, though, she’s done some pretty amazing gaps and dynos.”

“I go on a lot of weekend climbing adventures. It never seemed odd to me, just seemed like something I’d do with my pet, take her places,” explained Armstrong. Ever since Millie climbed up onto his shoulder at the Furburbia adoption center in Utah, Armstrong knew they’d make a good team.

There are, of course, pros and cons to taking your cat hiking – “We camp in my truck; She peed in there one night, but she caught a mouse in there one night, too.” Armstrong hopes that they can become a team in other aspects of his life as well; “I’m still waiting for the day we come across a group of pretty ladies and they love Millie and invite us to their campfire that night.“

He also had plenty of advice for owners who might consider hiking with their own cats. “Get them used to their name and to you as a safe place. In talus fields or thick woods she’ll get distracted and climb trees or explore tiny caves and under boulders and stop following sometimes. It’s taken a lot of practice and many trips to get Millie to the point where she follows me down a trail past areas like thickets that would have distracted her otherwise.”
