11.A kitten is given oxygen after being saved in a house fire in Missoula, Montana.

Minutes later, the kitten was in the back of an ambulance, cradled in the arms of emergency medical technician Paige Ostanhowski, who held an oxygen mask to a button nose turning a healthy shade of pink. He survived and is doing well.

"Amid the crowds of protestors and media in Zuccotti Park, this little guy was just hanging out on Danielle's shoulder.

Instead of putting the squirrel down, Danielle adopted it and nursed it back to health. Now they go everywhere together. The squirrel's name is Hazelnut, she likes peanut butter, and her leash is made of braided hemp."
