The idea of making animal beds came to Amarildo’s mind after seeing that stray animals often use old tires to seek shelter.

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness, so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
