    Sure, we could spend hours (er, days) browsing cat videos, but, for those who enjoy a deeper dive into the scientific and philosophical realm of the animal kingdom, there's The Dodo. Covering everything from why cats purr to sting operations on tiger poacher rings in Sumatra, The Dodo is committed to creating an unprecedented community for animal-lovers.
    Animals and blankets are an egregiously cute combination. There is little in this world that can make a person melt into a puddle of joy quite like a small animal swaddled.

    But, aside from the cuteness factor, this burrito fad actually serves some important practical purposes.

    For example, volunteers at the Morgan Hill Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation center wrap this little baby barn owl (appropriately named Barney) in a small blanket to keep him from scratching with his talons while he is being fed. Little Barney was brought to the center when he fell out of his nest in a palm tree.
