275x250.jpg Meet Daniel, he's a cat with a difference -- he's got 26 toes. Not only that, but his digit-laden paws have helped save an animal rescue centre in the US.

The once-unwanted orange-and-white tabby became the face (or should that be  feet) of a campaign to raise money for cash-strapped Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center.

After discovering their rent was to be doubled, the animal shelter decided to move into a new location and needed to raise $70,000. so they looked to Daniel who suffers from polydactylism.

So they asked people to donate a dollar for each of Daniel's toes and thanks to the internet it looks like they will be safe. Normal cats have 18 toes, if you were wondering.


It can be annoying if you can't find a parking space big enough for your car, but little things like that don't bother this New York driver.

That's because his can-do attitude saw him put on a virtuoso display of parallel parking and squeeze into a space barely bigger than his vehicle.

Caught on CCTV the driver can be seen repeatedly inching forward and backwards to get his silver Honda Acura into the spot in Brooklyn.

And then he had to do it all again a couple of hours later when he wanted to leave.


Okay so it's not exactly 'Jesus Christ, Fenton' but this video of a Scottish weather-watcher shouting 'Oh my God, Trampoline!' is certainly up there.


The clip, shot during the gale-force storms of last week, sees a cameraman being shocked as he watches a kids’ garden trampoline blow past his window.

“Oh my God! Trampoline! Trampoline! Oh my God!” more than a million internet viewers have heard him scream in the 13 second clip.

One commenter said: "That’s the first time he’s seen a trampoline in the wild,"  while another added the probing insight: "I like the way he shout oh my god trampoline."
