Happy last Friday in February! Spring is right around the corner; we can feel it. Surely animals have spring fever, too, if this week’s news is any judge.

This week we learned that cats have been tiptoeing across their guardians’ work for hundreds of years. [The Atlantic]

But cats aren’t the only ones acting smart. Dogs can actually recognize other dogs’ faces, according to a new study. [Scientific American]

Speaking of faces, is there anything cuter than this little lamb’s sweet mug? [Farm Sanctuary]

Finally, just in time for spring, two resilient bald eagles have rebuilt their nest, which was destroyed during Hurricane Sandy. [New York Times]

See you Monday!
