It’s 2013. You’d think that mankind would have classified and catalogued every animal by now. But for the first time in more than three decades, scientists discovered a new mammal in the Americas. Native to Ecuador and Colombia, the cute, fluffy olinguito — technical name: Bassaricyon neblina — officially became the smallest member of the raccoon family when the Smithsonian announced the discovery in August. Previously, scientists thought this animal was part of a sister species known as the olingo, but extensive research showed that the cuddly creatures were in fact their very own species.
Lentil, found on fb as My Name is Lentil, should have been on this list. He was born in February with a cleft lip and palate. He not only survived, but has become an "ambassadog" to thousands of children and adults affected by facial differences.

I miss you Pinky. Such a sweet cat.
