They said growing up is hard. But they never said watching someone else grow up is this hard!

Sadie's father Ryan Miller said: “She’s cried about not wanting to get older herself in the past, but this was the first time she was upset about her brother.”

In an email statement provided by his brother Alex Miller, who uploaded the video to YouTube, dad added: “The funny thing is that this was totally out of the blue — we have no idea what prompted it.”

The RSPCA in UK said that more black cats are being abandoned because they don't look good in selfies.

Meow, it's enough to make any self-respecting black feline pissed off.

News is out that people are taking a selfie... with a better-looking cat?

The Daily Mail reported that more black cats are abandoned in the UK because they do not look good in selfies.

Unwanted: Black kittens abandoned over the last weekend

The Royal Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) announced that black cats accounted for more than 70 per cent of the 1,000 cats in its care.

A spokesman for the animal welfare group said: "There are a number of reasons for us having so many black cats, including the fact that black felines are not as photogenic as other cats."

Orange is the new black

The founder of RSPCA Ronnie McMillen, 71, said: "We just have had a lot of black cats in this year - people don't like black at the moment."

Well, orange is the new black, according to McMillen.

He said: "Ginger male cats are the most popular."

Fortunately, some cat owners are still more than happy to take selfies, and more importantly take care, of their black cats.

Girl, 3, holds on with one arm as she hangs upside down

A three-year-old girl hangs upside down after she, not knowingly, gripped tightly onto the side of a spinning barrel ride as she spun 360 degrees before sliding off about 7 seconds later as her feet got closer to the ground.

She wasn't hanging by a thread. Instead, she was hanging by what looks like one arm on the rotating attraction.

This three-year-old girl was adamant on sitting on a rotational attraction but didn't know exactly what to do once she got on. 

She then he sits on the edge and, with her hands by her side, grips tightly of the spinning barrel fairground ride which takes her, slowly, on a 360-degree round, Mail Online reported. 

Ciera Dawn filmed her daughter Niah as she stood in fear, and then amazed, as she watched her daughter hold on, especially when she was upside down, until she looped back around the right way, the publication added.

As she was looped the right way around, Niah slipped off the ride when her feet was about two seconds away from touching the ground again.

Her mother was heard bursting into uncontrollable laughter towards the end of the video.

Talk about a close call.
