Meet Messi The Puma

(WILDLIFE/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS) Meet Messi, the two-year-old puma from Penza, Russia. Unlike most big cats, Messi lives with a couple in a one-bedroom apartment. Messi was one of three cubs born at Saransk Zoo who were named after famous international soccer players to celebrate the city hosting four matches in the group stages of the World Cup. The cub was then sold to the Penza Zoo when he was just three months old, and subsequently rescued by Maria and Aleksandr Dmitriev when he was a sickly eight-month old cub. Since Messi was smaller than most pumas due to his early onset health problems, he needed a lot of medical attention and care. Luckily, the Dmitrievs took their parenthood very seriously. For more of Messi the puma's mischief and good looks, follow him on Instagram. -- Global Animal

Meat-Free Monday: Vegan Cauliflower Stuffed Poblano Peppers

(MEATLESS MONDAYS/VEGAN RECIPES) Spice up your Monday night with these vegan cauliflower stuffed poblano peppers.

But if you can’t find poblanos, you can use any type of bell pepper that you'd like. The stuffing consists of onion, bell pepper, cauliflower, rice, black beans, spinach, tomatillo salsa, and lots of delicious spices.

Top Fashion Capital Of The World Goes Fur-Free

(ANIMAL WELFARE/ANIMAL NEWS) Following in the footsteps of West Hollywood, Berkeley, and San Francisco, Los Angeles is now the largest city in the United States to go fur-free. Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to ban the sale of fur beginning in January, giving retailers until 2020 to rid their existing inventories. Their decision comes just days after designer Burberry and London Fashion Week announced they would go fur-free. And while a growing number of municipalities and major fashion designers--including Michael Kors, Versace, and Gucci--are saying no to fur, the city's move signals a growing trend to outlaw the inherently cruel and inhumane fur trade globally. Read on to learn more about this historic decision for the nation's second largest city and one of the world's major fashion hubs, and how it's poised to encourage similar bans around the globe.
