Woman Says Her Pet Toucan’s Extreme Separation Anxiety Means She Can’t Ever Go On Vacation

A woman who adopted a pet toucan two years ago has admitted she struggles witn looking after the bird at times. Janelle Tsao, 35, took Touki into her home in Los Angeles but the animal’s severe separation anxiety has meant that she can’t leave him alone in the house and hasn’t been on vacation since she got him.

Toucans only bond with one human. As birds, toucans are monogamous both in terms of mating and the humans that they bond with. This means that whenever Janelle leaves the room, Touki will “croak call or screech loudly” until she comes back, however long it takes. “It can be very annoying, like a screaming parrot,” she said.

Having Touki is like having a child. Toucans aren’t small birds, so having such a large one in the house poses its challenges. “It’s like having a child, he’s beautiful, intuitive and always curious,” Janelle explains. “These birds are like flying toddlers or monkeys – they will get into everything. Yesterday, I was chopping tomatoes and placed them in a bowl with a lid, which he isn’t allowed to have, they’re too acidic. He flies down to the counter and lifted the lid and stole a tomato, then he flew up to the second floor of our loft and quickly swallowed it before I could even start climbing!”

His diet is pretty expensive. Touki doesn’t just eat plain birdseed – he eats lots of fresh and exotic fruits and vegetables including blueberries, palm dates, lychee, and sweet potatoes. This ends up costing about $80 a month.

Oh, and he poops a lot too. Apparently, toucans poop every five to 10 minutes, which is crazy! Touki tends to do it while he’s flying around the house, and Janelle shares it can be “any color of the rainbow.” This means they’ve had to poo-proof most of the house. “We plasticize all of our couches, clean up any poops that don’t make the designated liners,” she said. “Caretaking for a toucan is high maintenance!”

Janelle wouldn’t recommend a toucan as a pet, but she loves Touki. She and her girlfriend, 40-year-old Arielle Zarutsky, saw him at a breeder’s in 2019 and fell in love with him. “Our hearts just melted. He was very quiet and I guess shy in the cage,” she recalled. “I think it’s because he was injured and he had scab like things in his feathers. I made the commitment right there, that I would do whatever it took to love and care for him. It was always a dream of mine to care for a toucan.”

Former Playboy Bunny Reveals Insane Rules For Living In Mansion Set By Hugh Hefner

A former Playboy Bunny has revealed the strict rules Hugh Hefner set for women living in the infamous mansion. Jenna Bentley, who’s originally from Montana, lived in the Bunny House next to the mansion for years. And while she loved her time there, she has admitted that it came with some pretty insane requirements that she found difficult to uphold at times.

Background checks are the bare minimum. Before Bunnies are ever even considered as possible residents of the Playboy mansion, a rigorous background check is performed to make sure that they’re not harboring any serious criminals there. That one’s pretty understandable, right?

There’s a curfew in place. This is where things get a bit tougher. Bunnies are told that they must be back in the mansion by 9 p.m. However, while this might be tough for some people to abide by, Bentley didn’t mind it so much.

If you missed curfew, you had to face the consequences. Bentley did reveal that not being back at the house by 9 p.m. was dealt with in a pretty hardcore way: the women had to spend the night sleeping on the lawn and were not allowed back in until the following day, no exceptions. Better hope it’s not raining!

Meeting men was out of the question. Another strictly upheld rule involved the women meeting other men. None of the Bunnies were allowed to have boyfriends and if it was discovered that one of the women had met a man, she was immediately kicked out of the mansion, no questions asked.

However, the house did have some upsides. Bentley recalled that living there was like living in Barbie’s Dream House because everything they wanted was at their fingertips. They had a phone they used to call “Dial-A-Dream” because if you pressed 0, you could ask for absolutely anything and it would be brought to you, 24/7/365.

Bentley never slept with Hefner. However, she did walk in on him with three different women at one point. According to Bentley, he had three separate rooms for his official girlfriends and wives, while the women not in these categories had to live in the Bunny house. Still, she seemed to have a pretty good experience there!

Judge Requests Cardi B’s Herpes Test Results Ahead Of Lawsuit Hearing

Published

A judge has ordered a US medical center to release the results of Cardi B’s STD tests as part of her defamation lawsuit against vlogger Latasha Kebe. Judge William M. Ray II told the Center for Women’s Pelvic Health at UCLA to put out “any and all medical records within your possession related solely to the testing for Herpes and HPV for Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar,” Billboard reports.

Cardi B’s defamation case makes some serious accusations. The rapper’s case against vlogger Latasha Kebe accuses Kebe of starting a “malicious campaign” to ruin Cardi’s reputation. That campaign included the release of dozens of videos that accused Cardi B of prostitution, drug use, and having STDs.

The STD results are important to Cardi’s case. This is because if her test results proved that she was STD-free, that could help her win the case. Kebe’s attorneys were the ones demanding the results, but according to Billboard, Cardi B’s attorneys had already voluntarily submitted the evidence on the rapper’s behalf earlier on in the case.

The case has been going on for more than two years. Early on after Cardi B’s filing, Kebe tried to countersue by claiming that the rapper’s fans had been threatening her on social media, but a judge ruled there was “no evidence” of this being the case. Then, early in November, Cardi B asked a judge to postpone the trial until January due to a family emergency, which Kebe claimed was fabricated. However, a judge ruled in Cardi’s favor.

The trial will begin on January 5. It remains to be seen which way this case will go, but hopefully justice is served.

Woman Climbs Into Lion Enclosure At Zoo With 2 Dozen Roses And Throws $1 Bills At ‘King’ Cat

Police are calling for the public’s help to locate a woman who climbed over a barrier near the Bronx Zoo’s lion exhibit and began professing her love for one of the animals while throwing $1 bills. Cellphone footage obtained by NBC NY shows the woman wearing a red dress and a blonde wig approaching the lion with two dozen roses as she tells the person filming “I miss him so much.”

The woman continually confessed her love for the lion. The video shows the woman waving at other people as she tells the lion, “King, I love you. I came back for you!” She then starts dancing before throwing money at the animal.

The zoo’s staff arrived too late to do anything about it. While other visitors to the zoo did alert Bronx Zoo staff to what was going on, by the time they reached the exhibit, she’d already left the scene and was unable to be located.

Thankfully, neither the animal nor the woman was ever in any danger. The Bronx Zoo said in a statement that while the woman did climb over a barrier, she remained in a different area from the lion. “The woman did not enter the exhibit and was never in the same space as the lions which are separated from zoo visitors by a wide moat,” the zoo said. “The incident lasted only a couple of minutes and the woman was gone when staff arrived on scene. We have an NYPD substation in the park and are working closely with them to resolve this situation with this individual. The Bronx Zoo has a zero-tolerance policy in matters such as this and will aggressively seek prosecution against this individual and anyone who violates park safety rules.”

This might be the same woman from 2019. One of the witnesses believes that, while the woman hasn’t been identified, they believe she’s Myah Autry, the woman who pulled the same stunt back in 2019. At the time, Autry, 34, was charged with two counts of criminal trespassing. She said at the time: “I fear nobody. No animal, no human, no one. So no, I wasn’t fearing of the lion because the lion loved me. That’s why he came to me and I let the lion know: Lion, I love you.” She failed to appear at a court appearance and was arrested in October 2020 and transferred to Coney Island Hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
