In a previous article, we looked at the story of a guy who risked his life to save two tiny kittens, soaked in oil. This is another story of a desperate oil soaked creature, this time a Penguin, rescued by 71 year old, João Pereira de Souza.
On a Brazilian fishing island, in 2011,this penguin waddled up to Widower João and was greeted with compassion, love and warmth. He tended to him daily, feeding him sardines and gave him a warm comfortable spot in a shaded area.
This penguin, did not forget the kindness and continually returned to João, daily and still does.
When he returns he’s so happy to see me, he comes up to my neck and hoots. He doesn’t let any dog or cat near me or else he goes after them and pecks.”
It’s possible that he has redirected his natural instinct to mate toward this guy.”
