Best. Secret Santa. EVER!
Every year the website Reddit has a Secret Santa gift exchange. One user named Rachel participated, but she was never expecting the gifts that she got.
She especially didn't expect the gifts to be from the billionaire Bill Gates, but that's exactly what happened!
She became a bit curious of the gifts she received which included a stuffed cow, an undisclosed donation amount to the non-profit Heifer International, and the travel book Journeys of a Lifetime.
But she wasn't able to piece it together until she found a photo of him standing in front of a Christmas tree holding her presents in his hands! Along with an amazing note from Mr. Gates himself!
Here's what his note said:
No, not boy toys….DOG TOYS!!!! LOLz!

A lot of people are going to want to know the answer to this!
Perezcious reader Stacy asks Teddy's celeb vet Dr. Patrick Mahaney:
Ever since i got a new cat (who is a year), my old cat (2 years old) won't play anymore. They get along fine and even cuddle together, but whenever I bring out toys they old cat won't play. He just sits and watches the new cat play. He used to love to play! Why is this and how can i get him to be more active?
This is what Dr. Mahaney had to say:
Thank you for your question.
Feline behavior is often unable to be explained with a simple answer.
What toys are you using? Many cats are attracted to fast moving toys that require them to exhibit their natural athletic tendencies, such as a feather on a string and pole (like a fishing pole). Additionally, a laser pointer can be used for both slow to gradual or fast movements, but make sure to not shine it right into your cat's eyes.
Another way of motivating him to be more active is to use pieces of cat food or treats. You can get him to approach the treat, smell, take a lick, then toss the treat across the room for him to chase. Make sure to only do this with a few pieces of food/treat, as we don't want to provide excess calories that can pack on the pounds (kind of like going for a vigorous jog that finishes at McDonalds).
Do your new (we'll call this one No 2) cat and "old" (and this one No 1) cat play together? If so, then No 1 may be more tired and have less energy to play with toys. If No 1 is showing reluctance to play or be active on an ongoing basis, then schedule an examination with your veterinarian. There could be an underlying medical issue that is causing less energy that merits further diagnostics and treatment.
