  • A woman describes what it's like to be abducted at 22 and spend 7 years as a slave with one of the most ruthless Mexican drug cartels

    Daniela remembers being driven blindfolded through the desert in northern Mexico, thinking she was going to her death. She recalls being told to get out of the van, uncover her eyes, and follow her armed captors into a large house and down into the cellar. She was obliged to watch what was going on, and tried to blank out her mind. It didn't work. She still remembers the scene — about five young women bound to pillars, surrounded by men who had paid a lot of money not just to rape them, but to torture and perhaps kill them as well. Daniela is not her real name. She insists on a pseudonym, because she may have escaped, but the reach of her former captors is long. What she saw that day was just

  • This text between a daughter and her mom about their cat is too relatable

    Forget the whole favorite child debate. Sometimes the most adored member of the family is actually the cat, which was recetly made clear to aptly named Jenny Katz. Jenny's mother feeds her 17-year-old cat Coco a little bit of ice cream before bed every night. Jenny tells Mashable that this routine started about a year ago after she moved out on her own. But Jenny topped off the last of the ice cream the other day, which means Coco was pissed and so was her mom Debbie.  SEE ALSO: 14 types of text everyone gets from their mom Image: jennmeowmeow Anyone who has ever had a popsicle will understand that it is no substitute for ice cream. Coco knows what's up.  Image: jennmeowmeow Clearly some cat parents out there found her mother's actions towards her cat pretty relatable. Knowing she messed up real bad, Jenny eventually delivered the favorite child Coco her French vanilla ice cream.  "They have such a funny relationship; it's almost as if she loves that cat more than she loves me," Jenny told Mashable in an email.  Regardless, Jenny describes Coco as the "sweetest cat you will ever meet," claiming that she used to be the cat's favorite before her mom stepped up the ice cream game.  "Coco used to love me more than anyone, but she probably loves my mom more now. Only for the ice cream," said Jenny.   [h/t:BuzzFeed]
