Enchanting exotic. The Ashera is a new feline breed developed from the African serval, the Asian leopard cat, and the domestic cat, according to Lifestyle Pets in Wilmington, Del. The company is selling the 30-pound breed at $22,000 per cat. A representative says the Ashera interacts and plays like a domestic cat but tolerates walking on a leash better than other felines.

Hey, metal mouth! Dr. Dean Wilkinson at Animal Haven of Socorro, N.M., worked with orthodontist Ginger Bratzel to fit 1-year-old Baxter with customized children's braces.

Bratzel featured Baxter at her annual patient appreciation event Sept. 15.
