This week's Insta pick is sure to satisfy even the most dedicated animal lover - @lifeofpikelet features, first and foremost, Pikelet (full name: Pikelet Butterwiggle Stoll) - a pound pup pulled from death row, living the life in Sydney alongside his little brother Patty (full name: Patty Cakes Huckleberry Stoll). Pikelet's family is a true testament to the power of fostering - they always have at least one resident foster animal. I say "animal" because we're not just talking about dogs & cats here - there was "Punk", their foster pig, and let's not forget about Penguin and Popinjay, who we got to watch grow from little yellow ducklings into beautiful speckled adult ducks.
They've had no shortage of adoptable dogs and cats along the way too, and their current foster Peppermint Patty is no exception! If you're near Sydney and looking to adopt, you might want to keep an eye on this account. There's also a whole bunch of awesome videos to be found on Pikelet's Facebook page - we dare you to watch this recap of 2016 video without shedding a tear.
As strong advocates for fostering, we LOVE seeing accounts that celebrate and promote the life changing powers it has - both for the humans and the animals. Pikelet and his family do this to a T - but they also touch on something a bit deeper, something that as humans we can really learn from: that all different types of animals can live in harmony. It's something I think we all need reminding of once in a while - so on that note, be sure to follow the life of Pikelet, and live a little more harmoniously, even with those who are not quite like you. Pikelet would be proud.
