WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) – The Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (WCRAS) is seeking solutions to ongoing capacity issues.

The shelter will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, but will reopen on Friday, offering “name your price” adoptions for all medium and large adult dogs and cats through Dec. 4. Small dogs, puppies and kittens cost $75 to adopt.

WCRAS is also looking for foster families to make room for the animals. The shelter offers a two-week foster program as well as a “Home For The Holidays” program to encourage medium and large dogs during the holiday season.

You can join the WCRAS foster team by filling out this registration form, then choose a dog to take home for the holidays. You can adopt your foster family if it turns out to be a perfect marriage. Otherwise, you bring it back to the shelter. The promotional program runs until January 2.

Just last week the shelter said its capacity was “unsustainable” and asked the community for help after taking in double-digit animals six days a week.

April Peiffer, the shelter’s community programs coordinator, said the shelter had experienced critical capacity levels since around June, with little relief since then. Typically, critical levels are seen every year, but they usually come and go.

“This year has been exceptional in that there has just been no ebb, and everything is fluid,” Peiffer said.

Email adoption@wilco.org to schedule an appointment with your dream pet, and walk-in visits are also welcome between noon and 6 p.m.

Visit wilcopets.org for an overview of all adoptable pets.

A large dog with an underbite problem and a slight odor has won hearts on the internet thanks to a sweet but honest message from a North Carolina animal shelter.

“Billy Bob – 110#, tongue drags way too much, terrible car driver, entirely too food driven and will accidentally mistake your arm for a cheeseburger, kinda smells and loves everyone he’s ever met”, Burke County Animal Services posted Wednesday on Facebook. “Somebody embrace this hot mess! We promise you won’t regret it!”

The post, which also clarifies that Billy Bob is a mastiff, includes two winning photos of Billy Bob.

The large dog, who is actually “a little thin” for his body, was found wandering around a farm in the rain earlier this month, Burke County Animal Services Director Kaitlin Settlemyre told the Charlotte Observer.

She added that since he was at the shelter, staff had “discovered he was a giant baby who was unaware of his large size”.

The post sparked hundreds of likes and shares and an influx of interest in Billy Bob. He is currently staying with a local family for a pre-adoption trial to make sure he is the right fit, and “all is well,” Settlemyre told HuffPost in an email.

But for all you other new Billy Bob fans, there are plenty of other ways to help dogs like him.

“I love that Billy Bob is getting a lot of attention, but I’d like the nation to know that our national animal shelters are going through a serious crisis, and I’m sure there’s a Billy Bob around. ‘them!” said Settlemyre. “Speak to your shelters and relief workers and see what you can do to support their efforts during this time.”

She added that in Billy Bob’s absence, Burke County Animal Services is still collecting donations to help his other “hot messes” and buy new tables and chairs “because Billy ate ours.”

Toulson is looking for a carousel that can comfortably accommodate an “adult size” grade 5 student and a puppy that will eventually grow into a large dog for long car trips. He dreamed of an AMG station wagon but didn’t have the budget. What car should he buy?

(Welcome back to Which car should you buy? Where we give real people real advice on buying cars. Want us to help you find a car? Submit your story on our form.)

Here is the scenario:

I have a 5th grader who is adult sized and a puppy who is going to be huge. We do a few longer trips every year and need a car that can both handle those trips, be good around town and not boring. If I could find a maroon E63 AMG with a manual within my budget, I’d write a check without thinking twice, but things like “reality” intrude on my dreams.

I want enough space for three adult-sized humans and a dog that likes to spread out (so either three rows or a wagon-size cargo area). Also, I say I prefer a manual transmission because I do, but I know that actually won’t happen. More importantly, it can’t be an SUV. I have a budget up to $50,000

Fast facts:

Budget: up to $50,000

Location: washington d.c.

Daily driver: Yes

Wanna: Spacious, fun, comfortable

Will not : an SUV


Expert 1: Tom McParland – JAAAAG WAAAAGON

Toulson, I too have dreams of an AMG station wagon but the bank account balance is missing to justify such a purchase. Now, the obvious solution to the scenario of carrying the family and a large dog on a road trip is simply to “buy the fucking minivan”, but it doesn’t look like you’re quite ready to take that step. With the SUV out of the question, that leaves the roof long. Of course, checking this box means severely limiting your options.

You want something with some street presence, plenty of cargo space behind the rear seats and, ideally, a good number of ponies under the hood. This calls the Jaguar XF Sportbrake. It doesn’t have a hand-built V8 like the AMG, but the 380-horsepower supercharged V6 shoving through Beltway traffic shouldn’t be a problem. This particular cat with just 25,000 miles is not only local, but also Jaguar certified, and had an original retail price of just over $72,000.. That’s quite a bargain, especially in this bloated used-car market. Jaguar’s build quality might be a bit of a gamble, but if you had to play it safe, you’d have bought the Sienna by now.

Expert 2: Andy Kalmowitz – Do the Right Thing

Image for article titled I need a ride capable car that can handle a big kid and a big dog!  What car should I buy?

Toulson, I hate to break it to you, but you have to buy a minivan. I understand you’re not quite there yet, but those are the facts of life. A van will suit you exactly for what you are looking for. I know it’s hard to hear. So what about that? I’ll find you a minivan way below your budget. This means that you will have money left over to buy a real fun car.

The right car for you is a Chrysler Pacifica. Is it better than a Honda Odyssey or a Toyota Sienna? It’s a draw. But, I’m a Chrysler minivan loyalist. Growing up, my mom had four in a row, so that’s what I’m going to recommend. Here is the good news. You can get one good in your budget. I’m talking over $20,000 to save.

Because of that, I found you this 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Touring Plus. It’s got all the bells and whistles you’ll need for kid-carrying and road trips, under 20,000 miles, and a price to die for. This piece of metal will set you back less than $29,000. This will leave you plenty of money to get a second fun car. Think of all the Miatas and BRZs you can get for that kind of money. There is also your manual response.

So Toulson, I know that’s not what you want to hear, but a van is what you need. You will thank me later.

Expert 3: Owen Bellwood – Choose the right bus

Toulson, Andy is right, and a van is probably the best option for you. But just because you need a pickup doesn’t mean you have to settle for something bland, like a Pacifica. Instead, you should let your creativity run wild and go for something classic.

I introduce you this glorious 1995 VW bus. Hey, that’s weird. I thought VW dropped this design long before 1995? Well you would be there, but in Brazil the design remained in production until 2013so you can get yourself a nice old van that might last a bit longer than a 70s VW. And, with that in mind, I think this bus is perfect for you.

It’ll stand out from the crowd every time you drive it around town and that four-speed manual transmission will keep your arms working while you’re on the road. Plus, there’s tons of luggage and dog space in the back. And, if you’re on a long drive and need to stop for a break, there’s even a second VW bus available with a kitchen installed. I can’t think of a more perfect vehicle for you.

Expert 4: José Rodríguez Jr. – A long goodbye to Volvo’s sleek long roof

Image for article titled I need a ride capable car that can handle a big kid and a big dog!  What car should I buy?

Despite a van being the obvious choice, you don’t need to buy a van yet, Toulson. There are countless cars out there that will comfortably fit your family of four and still be fun to drive in one way or another. To this day, I’m still looking BMW X5 with manual transmission late at night when I’m feeling restless – or reckless, rather – but I’m not going to blame you for that. You don’t need a project SUV so I recommend this 2019 Volvo V90 T5 R-Design it’s quite a distance from DC, but it’s under budget and has all the upgrade management. Plus, it’s in a lovely shade of blue that would make a memorable machine for family trips.

Sounds like you want something engaging, and while the turbocharger V90 The T5 does not have the power of the turbo- and Supercharged T6, it might still give you what you’re looking for thanks to its sporty suspension. I know I’m already taking the gear stick away from you, so if you really want more pep to make up for the loss, there’s this V90 T6 R-Design it’s barely over budget.

I hesitated to choose one volvo wagon first; I had a feeling these amazing cars would be common in Washington DC, but then I realized that the Volvo V90 isn’t common anywhere in the US because not many people bought the damn thing in the first place. It’s just weird to me that someone would choose a clunky SUV over a sleek V90, which would soak up the miles while still suiting a family with room to spare. Never mind. The V90 deserves a long goodbye with a loving family. It’s you and yours, Toulson.

Two WWII planes collide mid-air at US air show, six casualties feared https://peet-corso.cz/two-wwii-planes-collide-mid-air-at-us-air-show-six-casualties-feared/ Sun, 13 Nov 2022 18:37:09 +0000 https://peet-corso.cz/two-wwii-planes-collide-mid-air-at-us-air-show-six-casualties-feared/ Two World War II planes collided mid-air in Dallas, USA during an airshow.

Two World War II planes collided mid-air in Dallas, USA during an airshow.

Although there is not yet certainty on the number of victims, up to six people are believed to have died depending on the occupation of the two planes.

The two planes that collided were a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber and a P-63 Kingcobra fighter jet. Officials wouldn’t say how many people were on the planes, but Hank Coates, president of the company that put on the air show, said the B-17 typically had a crew of four to five and the P -63 had only one pilot.

During the collision, the two planes exploded in a ball of flames and sent black smoke billowing into the sky. Footage of the collision has surfaced on the internet from multiple angles.

Emergency crews rushed to the scene of the crash at Dallas Executive Airport, about 10 miles from the city’s downtown area. Newsreel footage from the scene showed the crumpled wreckage of planes in a grassy area inside the airport perimeter. Dallas Fire-Rescue told the Dallas Morning News that no injuries were reported among those on the ground.

Anthony Montoya, who saw the two planes collide, said: “I stood there. I was completely shocked and in disbelief. Everyone around was gasping. Everyone was bursting into tears. Everyone was under the shock.”

No paying customers were on the plane, said Coates of Commemorative Air Force, which also owned the planes. Their planes are flown by highly trained volunteers, often retired pilots, he said.

A team of National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators will arrive at the scene of the crash on Sunday.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson said the NTSB had taken control of the crash scene, with local police and firefighters in support.

“The videos are heartbreaking,” Johnson said on Twitter.

The planes collided and crashed around 1:20 p.m., the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said in a statement. The collision happened during the Commemorative Air Force Wings Over Dallas show.

Victoria Yeager, the widow of famed Air Force test pilot Chuck Yeager and a pilot herself, was also present at the show. She did not see the collision, but did see the burning wreckage.

She said: “It got sprayed. We just hoped they were all out, but we knew they didn’t.”

The B-17, the cornerstone of American air power during World War II, was a huge four-engined bomber used in daylight raids against Germany. The Kingcobra, an American fighter aircraft, was used primarily by Soviet forces during the war. Most B-17s were scrapped at the end of World War II and only a handful remain today, widely displayed in museums and air shows, according to Boeing.

Multiple videos posted on social media showed the fighter jet appearing to fly into the bomber, causing it to quickly crash to the ground and unleash a large ball of fire and smoke. The videos did not appear to show anyone skydiving before the planes crashed to the ground.

“It was really horrible to see,” Aubrey Anne Young, 37, of Leander. Texas, who saw the crash. His children were inside the shed with their father when it happened. “I’m still trying to make sense of it.”

A woman next to Young can be heard crying and screaming hysterically in a video Young uploaded to her Facebook page.

Airshow safety – especially with older military aircraft – has been a concern for years. In 2011, 11 people were killed in Reno, Nevada, when a P-51 Mustang crashed into onlookers. In 2019, a bomber crashed in Hartford, Connecticut, killing seven people. The NTSB then said it had investigated 21 crashes since 1982 involving World War II bombers, resulting in the deaths of 23 people.

Wings Over Dallas bills itself as “America’s premier WWII airshow,” according to a website advertising the event. The show was scheduled for November 11-13, Veterans Day weekend, and guests were to see more than 40 World War II-era aircraft. Its Saturday afternoon flight demonstration program included the “Bomber Parade” and “Fighter Escorts” which featured the B-17 and P-63.

Videos of previous Wings Over Dallas events show vintage warplanes flying low, sometimes in close formation, in simulated strafing or bombing runs. The videos also show the planes performing aerobatics.

The FAA has also launched an investigation, officials said.

RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) – An 88-year-old woman died after being attacked by a dog while walking through a Richmond neighborhood on Monday morning.

On Monday, November 7, at approximately 6:45 a.m., officers responded to the 1500 block of Alaska Drive to a report of a dog attack. When they arrived, they found Evangeline Brooks, 88, of Richmond, with life-threatening injuries.

She was taken to a local hospital and later died of her injuries.

Brooks is remembered for his dedication to service as a member of Southside Richmond First Baptist Church for 25 years.

“We have members who come and go, and then there are special members who mean a lot,” senior pastor Dwight Jones said.

His sudden death sent waves of grief through the family and the church community.

“She was a deacon, a choir member and a Sunday school teacher,” Jones said. She was also a teacher for Chesterfield County Public Schools for many years, according to family and friends.

“She is what we would say ‘the salt of the earth.’ He was a wonderful person,” Jones said.

A woman, he said, did not deserve to die a horrible death. Neighbor Roxie Ann Tune recalled the painful morning of the attack.

She tells us it happened about three doors down from where Brooks stayed with her son.

“She was lying here face down, and at that moment he had knocked things off her,” Tune said. “His shoes were sitting right here. She was actually here. And the lady that lives here had her around the neck.

Brooks had been out for her usual morning walk when she was mauled in her late sister’s driveway.

After the attack, the dog was taken into the custody of Richmond Animal Care and Control. The RACC confirms that the dog, which was a Pitbull mix, was immediately euthanized on Monday.

Brooks leaves behind an only son, Howvard.

“My mom was just amazing. She was phenomenal,” Howard Brooks said.

He now cherishes the precious times they shared together, like singing his favorite anthem, “Jesus on the Mainline.”

They all hope that the selfless life she lived will inspire others in the community.

“It’s a big loss. It’s a big loss for me, but I know I decided every day that I had to be the best I could be. It’s my responsibility,” Howvard said with tears in his eyes. .

The RPD is working with the RACC and the Commonwealth Prosecutor’s Office during this ongoing investigation.

Pastor Jones is calling on city and state leaders to do more to prevent such tragedies from happening to anyone else.

The RPD has yet to share details of the charges, which would bring a sense of closure to many who knew and loved Ms Brooks.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Major Crimes Detective Sergeant J. Flores at (804)-646-6670 or Crime Stoppers at (804)-780-1000.

A dog displaying unusual behavior in South Australia has gone viral on TikTok with over 2.7 million views.

In the video, posted on the @harrietandwilson page, Harriet the Scottish Greyhound can be seen sitting on her owner’s lap on the bed with her back turned. As her owner moves her laptop aside, Harriet falls backwards in what looks like a “fall in confidence”.

The voiceover revealed, “When my giant dog sits like that, it’s because he wants a hug and I have to drop everything to catch him.” In other videos on the TikTok page, Harriet can be seen playing with her brother Wilson, an Irish Greyhound.

Usually reserved for corporate training days, no one is quite sure why dogs lose confidence, but it’s pretty obvious that it means a dog is relaxed with its owner. Scottish Hunting Dogs are an ancient breed of dogs that were bred to hunt and kill red deer. In parts of medieval Europe, namely Britain, only the nobility were allowed to own what was considered an incredibly valuable dog due to its ability to hunt.

According to the Deerhound.org website, the big dogs were favorites of General George Custer, a cavalry commander during the American Civil War and infamous for his military decisions that led to his death during the Indian Wars in 1876 during the battle of Little Bighorn, also known as Custer’s Last Stand. One of his dogs, Tuck, was killed at Little Bighorn alongside him. He had written of her: “‘Tuck’ comes regularly when I write and lays her head on the desk, rooting my hand with her long nose until I consent to stop and notice her.”

19th century British artist Henry Landseer also made the breed famous with his numerous paintings of dogs, some of which are on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

User Gaily said: “What a show of love and trust. It fills my heart to bursting.”

User jodskis1975 commented: “My giant dog does this too. We call it confidence falls.”

User Chrissy Flanagan wrote: “You made her feel so safe and loved.”

Newsweek contacted the original poster for comment.

This is part of a collection of stories that resemble the encounter between “Final Destination” and “The Monkey’s Paw” (WW Jacobs, 1902). As such, they are tragedies more than mysteries or horror, and would appeal most to readers who appreciate the inexorable pull of a story arc that leads to doom. In each story, a protagonist makes a wish which comes true with fatal results for someone, often the person making the wish. Nothing supernatural, but just how things work. (Or is it?) The technical details surrounding the fatal (or near-fatal) event are taken from actual cases in the US OSHA Incident Reporting Database or similar sources and are therefore quite realistic, even if they seem far-fetched. The plots draw lightly from cultural beliefs around actions such as pointing at someone with a stick or knife, wishing in front of a mirror, or stepping on a crack.


Some people are curious and pushy by nature, and some are pushed in that direction by their profession or role. Billy had always been nosy and insistent. He was further encouraged by the culture around him and self-selected into a profession that encouraged being curious, pushy and bullying. Billy was a lieutenant in the city police and he had a good case.

Billy, and several others in his department, were part of a bonus program. The more citations issued and the more arrests they made, the higher the bounty payment. They also qualified for a small percentage of fines resulting from their work. The consultants who designed and recommended the program cited case studies and models that showed bonuses increased efficiency and performance. In practice, of course, what extrinsic rewards like bonuses have done has encouraged them to focus on system play for higher bonuses and seek more extrinsic rewards, like pocketing some of the things they have confiscated. It wasn’t that they were bad cops; they just focused more on self-fulfillment.

Opal G. Otter, MD, was a toxicologist with a wild garden and a love of dogs. When Drs. Felix and Felicity Knochenzauberer reluctantly sought another home for Bosco, the white Great Pyrenees mountain dog, Opal eagerly took him in. Bosco had been somewhat bloated before the Knochenzauberers got him, but regular walks, a dog gym, and better nutrition had reduced Bosco to a fit, muscular woofster.

However, it was just too much for the young couple to handle and needed more space. Opal lived on three acres of land, on which Bosco could run, dig, and hunt various rabbits, squirrels, and voles as he pleased. On the property were three gardens: the large expanse of meadows and mostly native flora, an enclosed garden of herbs and vegetables, and an enclosed garden which included a small greenhouse.

On either side of the locked door were panels of a painting by Hieronymus Bosch, and above the door was an archway with a carved hardwood panel with faded lettering reading “The Garden of Mortal Delights”. It was a joke, a gift from medical students from a previous year who enjoyed his lectures and anecdotes about accidental poisonings. The enclosed garden was his private museum of rare and curious plants: some culinary, some medicinal, and some poisonous. His prize specimen was a small patch of Yartsa Gunbu mushrooms that were so rare and sought after that they could fetch up to $63,000 a pound on the market. What Opal liked to explain to the casual visitor or group of students is that the fungus had a horrible, predatory life cycle. It started when the spores infected a ghost moth caterpillar, pushing out and consuming the caterpillar from within. The caterpillar became mummified during the winter, and in the spring the fungus bloomed from the corpse. She also had a square of Maitake, or “Hen of the woods”, this ounce for ounce was the tastiest mushroom in the world. Opal was excited to show people her special garden and saw it as an opportunity to dispel myths and correct misunderstandings about plants and fungi.

Lt. Billy Broom had seen Opal walking Bosco and had a plan. The fine for “loose” dogs was $100 and an additional $1,000 if there was no collar or license displayed. If the rabies token was not displayed, an additional $100 was added. Billy opened the outer garden door and walked over to where Opal was on one of her special garden tours. He heard her talking about mushrooms, and a slow smile crept across her face as a thought formed in her mind. As Opal moved towards the water feature area, he picked up snippets of his speech. Something about watercress and lettuce, then something about “…all parts of the plant…” and “…it smells like carrots”. Billy was all smiles, looking forward to seeing the special garden and was very impressed with the mushroom section. As they exited the locked area, Billy asked after Bosco. With a sinking feeling, Opal spotted the open gate leading to the street. “Oh, not yet,” she muttered to herself, and with a cursory goodbye, hurriedly ran down the street to see if Bosco was still nearby.

Billy tapped his microphone and quietly asked one of his team members to find the big white dog, remembering to remove the collar immediately. This would be the third dog without a collar today. Billy smiled at that thought, then went back to his previous thought that fancy mushrooms and wild carrot cress would be welcome on the barbecue that night. He would enjoy telling the guys about the $63,000 mushroom burgers they were eating. He took out a plastic bag of evidence and went back to the special garden.

The barbecue was indeed memorable. Billy roasted the carrots and sliced ​​mushrooms and flipped the bison patties while telling them his mushroom story. The guys poked fun at the thin and furious $1,200 “garden gnome lady” who had to shell out money to get her big white dog out of the pound. They were blown away by Billy’s story about their $63,000 burgers. They all grilled “the best fucking burgers ever” and heartily tucked into mushroom burgers and wild greens. Billy had been munching on the greens while managing the barbecue, but was almost drooling in anticipation of the burger.

When they got to the whiskey and cigar part of the evening, the truly memorable barbecue part began. It started with Billy feeling a little indigestion and getting up to get a Tums. He collapsed on the kitchen floor and had a fit while outside on the patio the others recounted aloud the origin of the confiscated cigars and how they had come to possess them. Over the next 10 minutes, they all began to experience symptoms as they ate the roasted roots of the water hemlock that Billy had misinterpreted as “wild carrot of watercress”. He had also misinterpreted the phrase “all parts of the plant” when he added the chopped leaves and young stems to his salad greens.

Someone had the foresight to call 911, but supportive care at the ER couldn’t control the seizures, and the toxicologist on call simply arrived too late to make a difference. All five officers received the ultimate bounty payment, a notable death that made headlines and an article in a prestigious medical journal.

Many of us have decided to welcome new four-legged friends into our homes over the past two years – according to Kennel Club figures, dog ownership has soared nearly 8% – and demand for puppies after lockdown remains high.

There are 221 different purebred dog breeds to choose from, as well as many crosses, so there’s a lot of thought to go into before selecting the latest addition to your family.

There’s even academic guidance to seek out, with psychologist Stanley Coren’s book “The Intelligence of Dogs” ranking breeds by instinct, obedience and adaptability. One thing to consider before making a decision is that certain dog breeds suit different lifestyles, especially when it comes to size.

If you lead an active lifestyle and have a house with a garden, a large dog may be your best option, while if you’re less athletic and live in an apartment, a small pooch may be a better choice. So here are the 10 largest and smallest dog breeds.

Big Eyes Coin threatens to overthrow Dogecoin in the crypto economy – CryptoMode https://peet-corso.cz/big-eyes-coin-threatens-to-overthrow-dogecoin-in-the-crypto-economy-cryptomode/ Sun, 30 Oct 2022 13:27:12 +0000 https://peet-corso.cz/big-eyes-coin-threatens-to-overthrow-dogecoin-in-the-crypto-economy-cryptomode/ The dislike between cats and dogs is long standing and with the existence of Dogecoin (DOGE) and Big Eyed Coin (BIG)nothing has changed in the crypto industry.

The dislike between cats and dogs is long standing and with the existence of Dogecoin (DOGE) and Big Eyed Coin (BIG)nothing has changed in the crypto industry.

Unfortunately for the cats, doggy coins have so far dominated the cryptocurrency market. At the time of writing, Dogecoin has a market cap of $10,207,965,034, and “Dogecoin killer” Shiba Inu (SHIB) is slightly behind at $6,071,496,310.

There is no cat-related crypto close to these numbers, but since the emergence of Big Eyes Coin, that is likely to change.

And part of the reason is due to the changing crypto landscape. NFTs, eco-friendly themes and interactive communities are all trending and these are the coins ready to meet the demands of crypto geeks and newbies alike that will skyrocket.

Dogecoin is by no means a useless cryptocurrency or an unprofitable business proposition. However, Big Eyes Coin is about to blow its doggy nemesis out of the water by bringing something completely different to the crypto universe.

The rise of Dogecoin linked to Elon

Dogecoin was created in 2013 as a joke and for many years it was not taken seriously or was worth anything significant in the crypto economy.

But that changed in 2019 when Tesla Titan Elon Musk decided to tweet about Dogecoin and proclaim his love for the meme currency.

Suddenly Dogecoin rose in value and three years later the coin with a Shiba Inu dog became one of the most lucrative and popular cryptocurrencies.

The world will never know where Dogecoin would be without good old Elon. Either way, it’s fair to say that the growth of the meme currency would have been more gradual, instead of rapid, seemingly overnight success.

To Dogecoin’s credit though, it enables cheap and efficient peer-to-peer transactions in an interactive and helpful community.

The unprecedented rise of big eyes

Big Eyes Coin breaks all sorts of crypto records by raising a staggering $9 million ahead of its official release. The cat meme is only in Stage 6 of its pre-sale and with a CEX Tier 1 launch secured, the Big Eyes bandwagon isn’t stopping.

Unlike nemesis Dogecoin, Big Eyes Coin was not tweeted by a multi-billionaire. Instead, Chat Currency is driving sales on its own accord through offering some great features.

For starters, Big Eyes Coin is about to release some of the cutest, loveliest, and most addictive NFTs out there. So cute that they plan to enter the top 10 NFT charts.

And the kindness doesn’t stop there as 5% of Big Eyes’ total supply will be donated to ocean saving charities.

Therefore, Big Eyes Coin is one of the few cryptocurrencies to choose to make a positive difference to the environment. As well as challenging the common perception that dogs are friendlier than cats.

Finally, Big Eyes Coin will consist of a fun, cat-loving community where events and token giveaways are common.
