Here’s what to know for Tuesday:

  • Lost cat reunited after a decade

  • Teen intern uncovers suicide risk factors in the brain

  • Poland’s annual charity fundraiser smashes records


Whiskas has been reunited with her family a whopping 10 years after she mysteriously disappeared into thin air.

She was discovered living the kitty life in Chilton Moor, not too far from her old stomping grounds near Houghton-le-Spring. In fact, a local resident found her hiding out in his shed in December and promptly whisked her off to the vet (pun intended).

Owner Linda Ellerton was flabbergasted when she received the news.

She had adopted Whiskas back in 2007 when the kitty was a wee kitten abandoned under a hedge in Scotland.

Linda had last laid eyes on her furry friend in 2013 when Whiskas mysteriously vanished from their County Durham garden. They had since packed their bags and moved to Hazelrigg, near Newcastle.

Whiskas had apparently been leading the mysterious life of a stray, complete with some kidney issues that require ongoing treatment.

The family never thought they’d be reunited with their beloved cat.

Considering her now-supersized doggo companion, Linda and the family decided it was best to rehome Whiskas with her brother, David Jeffrey. And now she's gained a few pounds and is on the road to a healthy recovery!

Pawsitively happy endings like Whiskas's are what we live for!

The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (WOŚP) just wrapped up its biggest charity event, and boy, did they smash their record!

They raised a staggering 175 million zloty (around €40 million) this year, thanks to 120,000 volunteers and jaw-dropping auction items.

It’s all about a nation coming together to spread happiness and make the world a better place.

That's exactly what's happening in Poland, and it's nothing short of amazing.

It's an annual tradition, like celebrating your birthday with cake, but instead of cake, it's all about giving back and making a difference.

I mean, who wouldn't want to be part of that?

So, kudos to Poland for once again proving that kindness knows no bounds.

It's stories like these that remind us that even in a world with its fair share of challenges, there's still a lot of love and goodness to go around.
