The internet sensation 'Grumpy Cat' has been busy lately... and her owner says she's thrilled about it all -- Obviously. Not only did she tour Washington, DC's Madame Tussauds where a waxwork look-alike was unveiled... but she also joined the cast of 'Cats' for their finale on Broadway. There's no scowling here... as Thailand's wildlife department collects data on them. The country is stepping up its efforts to register and keep stock of its captive tigers. Peruvian authorities were a saving grace for these puppies. Dogs, cats, rabbits and hamsters were all rescued, after officials found them in appalling conditions in an illegal pet-selling ring. This condor in Argentina knows a thing or two about second chances. He was rehabilitated from his old wounds and released back into the wild. And in the Russian wilderness... self-proclaimed animal lover President Vladimir Putin was recently seen visiting a nature reserve for rare wild horses. That's your weekly animal roundup.
