LARGEST WAD OF PAPER: The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is claiming the world record for the largest ball of paper. The ball was created to show residents just how much recyclable paper residents throw away every 30-second. The 426-pound wad, which measured 9-feet 7-inches and 32-feet in circumference, was shown at the Minnesota State fair. The agency was informed by the Guinness World Record that there wasn't a previous record. The ball unfortunately no longer exists as it was recycled and will eventually be made into cardboard for cereal boxes. (Yahoo)

CAT THAT WAS MISTAKENLY SOLD WITH MATTRESS GOES HOME: A Portland cat named Camo who was accidentally sold with a mattress set is finally home after 10 days.

Dufek sold Crews' mattress without realizing Camo could be hiding in one of his favorite spots, the box spring. Dufek wrote in a statement, "We can't ever repay or say thank you enough to all the people that spent their cherished holiday time, and resources to help us bring Camo home. It was quite emotional last night, we're in shock of this whole experience and have been holding him tight!" (Huffington Post)
