The new Nostradamus might be an adorable furry critter. A sweet Russian cat has been chosen to predict the outcome of the first game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. It may seem hard to believe but the feline was spot on with his prediction.
Achilles is already a modern day prophet. After all, the cat correctly predicted most of the results in last year’s Confederate Cup in Russia. Nevertheless, people wondered if the adorable feline will manage to prophesy what would happen in this year’s World Cup opening game. Achilles had to choose between Russia and Saudi Arabia, and managed to predict the motherland’s stunning victory.
The psychic cat concentrates before making a prediction about the World Cup opening game.
The deaf feline actually considered choosing Saudi Arabia, which was represented by the bowl on the left.
Achilles used a simple technique to make his World Cup prediction. The cat simply has to choose between two bowls of cat food that represent the teams. The furry prophet did not rush into his decision. He initially examined the bowl representing Saudi Arabia but did not touch the food.
The sweet feline did not waste time as he immediately made his World Cup prediction. Achilles quickly tucked into the bowl representing Russia as members of the press cheered on. Russia defeated Saudi Arabia with an amazing 5-0 victory during the tournament opener.
Achilles made his prediction, which may have inspired the Russian national team to give it their best during the first game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The feline proudly dons the Russian national team football shirt as he poses with his motherland’s flag.
It certainly was an impressive World Cup prediction. However, Achilles’ veterinarian Anna Kondratevya also stated that the cat “loves his motherland and couldn’t vote otherwise.”
Achilles is certainly enjoying the good life. The sweet-tempered animal spends his days relaxing in the museum when he isn’t making predictions. It is still unclear if the psychic cat will be called on to prophesy the World Cup champion later this month.

Dog Interrupts MLB Baseball Game, Gets Rewarded With A Ball And A New Friend
The pooch thought the baseball team was trying to play fetch with her!
One lucky dog had a truly awesome day at the park. A young German Shepherd got to watch a Minor League Baseball game with her owner. In addition to that, the pooch got to play a game of fetch and made a new friend. She also went home with a ball and won the hearts of many fans.
The MLB team Tulsa Drillers recently had a Bark at the Park Night when they went up against the Northwest Arkansas Naturals. The event allows fans to bring their dogs to the field while the NWA infielders were warming up. One pooch noticed that the players were throwing a ball around. The excited German Shepherd immediately broke away from her owner and dashed to join the baseball players.
The German Shepherd didn't care that the world was watching because she just wanted to play fetch.
The dog clearly loved balls and couldn't resist a possible game of fetch. NWA Naturals shortstop Nicky Lopez tossed the ball towards the foul line so the pooch would follow it out of the field. However, the German Shepherd immediately collected the ball and brought it back to him. Lopez quickly took hold of her leash so she could be led out of the baseball field....
Whale Found Dead In Thailand Had Over 80 Plastic Bags In Stomach
The poor whale starved to death.
A pilot whale died in Southern Thailand and scientists have found the alarming cause of the death. Apparently, the whale had 80 plastic bags in its stomach, which caused the animal to starve to death.
A week ago, the pilot whale was found clinging to life up a canal in Songkhla province, near the Malaysian border. Conservation officials tried to save the whale's life for days. They used buoys to keep it afloat and umbrellas to provide a shield from the sun.
After five days of endless effort, the whale vomited pieces of plastic.
The whale's condition drastically deteriorated and it later died.
MPR Raccoon Who Scaled 25-Story Skyscraper Finds Plush New Home In Minnesota Suburbs
The daredevil raccoon has traded her city loft for a gorgeous new country home.
It was a long and dangerous journey that has finally come to an end. The feisty raccoon that made headlines by scaling a 25-story skyscraper reached the top of the building. Wildlife Management Services has already captured the little critter and is sending her back to the wild.
Minnesota Police Radio gave MPR Raccoon her name when they first reported about the tiny animal. The trash panda started climbing the UBS Plaza in St. Paul on Tuesday, June 12. By Tuesday night, everyone including Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was expressing their support for the little climber. However, it looks like the furry daredevil will not have time to enjoy the view of city's skyline. Wildlife Management Services brought the raccoon back on solid ground.
MPR Raccoon was oblivious of the support from thousands of adoring fans and simply climbed the St. Paul building.
The tiny critter took a break every now and then but never gave up on her mission to reach the roof of the UBS Plaza.
