Possum party: Residents of the vacation town of Mallacoota in Victoria, Australia, were relieved when a resident brush-tail possum that locals call “Russell Rustle” came sauntering back to the area, along with his partner Rosie and baby Rascal. The area had recently endured bushfires, which had claimed a lot of forest and property, and residents were very concerned about the wildlife. While possums are often thought of as pests, Russell Rustle is loved by the whole community. His safe return was cause for celebration among the locals.
Monkey culprit: If a cellphone is stolen, the owner might suspect a human thief. When Zackrydz Rodzi’s phone disappeared from his home in Batu Pahat, Malaysia, the thief turned out to be a monkey. As there was no sign of a break-in, Rodzi’s family used his brother’s phone to call the stolen one, and heard it ringing in the bush near their home. After retrieving it from the mud and cleaning it up, Rodzi found a bunch of selfies of a monkey. There were even videos showing the antics of the little mammal trying to eat the phone

Black cat haven: Japan is home to many cafés that feature real felines, but only one is filled with black cats. Nekobiyaka is in the city of Himeji. Because black cats are less likely to find owners than cats of other colours, the café’s owner wanted to provide a place for people to interact with them and hopefully take one home as a pet. She keeps about 10 black cats at any one time, differentiating them by the colours of their collars. When a family takes one home, she brings another from a shelter. Visitors pay a small fee to enter, and they can buy refreshments while interacting with the cats.
Canal digger: A man from Kothilawa, a remote village in Bihar, India, has completed an amazing feat. It took Laungi Bhuiyan about three decades to divert run-off rainwater into a pond near the village. He did it by digging a three-kilometre-long (1.8-mi.) canal by himself, using hand tools. Before the canal existed, rainwater ran into a river and never reached the village. Now, people in the village have access to water in the pond, which they can use for crop irrigation and for farm animals to drink. As news of his feat spread on social media, Bhuiyan became known as “Canal Man.”

Jail house dreams: Someone looking to buy a home in the town of Guildhall, Vermont (U.S.), might be interested in a unique place: a 2,190-square-foot (203-square-metre) home that once belonged to the town’s jailer. Because of that, no one is surprised to learn that an actual jail is part of the deal. Attached to the house, the jail has seven cells that include bars. The house has changed hands numerous times since being built about 1880, but the jail has been left intact. However, the area’s real estate agents say that a renovation could turn the old lock-up into a lovely family living space.
Tattooed teacher: A schoolteacher in Essonne, France, may lose his job, but not because of a lack of teaching ability. Actually, Sylvian Helaine is very good at his job. The problem is that he has tattoos from head to toe, including on his face, and his superiors at his school have received complaints from parents. Apparently, some kindergarten children are afraid of him. In response, Helaine was moved from the kindergarten room to a class with older children. Known as Freaky Hoody on social media, he has a passion for getting tattoos, which he adamantly claims have no bearing on his ability to teach.

Smelly fish: There is a fish dish in South Korea that most people hate, but lovers of the delicacy can’t get enough of it. The dish is called hongeo (or hongeo-hoe) and it is well known in Korea. The fish used is naturally fermented skate, a bottom-dwelling species. Its smell resembles ammonia. The odour even permeates clothing, so some restaurants offer sealed bags to store guests’ jackets during the meal. First-time eaters are coached to breathe in through their mouths and out through their noses when eating it. After a few times, some get hooked on this dish.
Canine protection: Unbeknownst to his parents, a little boy from St. Louis, Missouri (U.S.), wandered away from home one morning. In bare feet and wearing only his pyjamas, Kh’amorion Taylor quickly became lost. However, a stray dog came to his rescue, staying by him as he toddled through unfamiliar streets. An anonymous woman noticed the duo, and started knocking on doors to see if anyone knew the boy. Eventually, after seeing a post on social media, the boy’s father was alerted, and a joyful reunion resulted. The story shows how protective a dog can be towards a human who is in trouble.
