What's the weirdest gift you've ever received from your partner's mother? Well, The Bachelorette's Katie Thurston may just win that competition.
During Monday night's "Hometown" episode, Thurston met the family and friends of the remaining contestants. After the episode aired, she shared a photograph of her cat posed next to a Canada-flag printed sex toy that she was apparently given from none other than Hamilton-raised contestant Blake Moynes' mom.
I wore a fucking Sunday church outfit just so I could receive this gift from his mom!!? 😂 #TheBachelorette https://t.co/9oNB5l9u8w
"I wore a f------ Sunday church outfit just so I could receive this gift from his mom!!?" Thurston tweeted, in apparent disbelief that Mama Moynes gifted her such an intimate item.
Moynes and his mom, Emily, seem like they have a close relationship. In his latest Instagram post, Mama Moynes tossed down a shot of maple syrup with her son, which he captioned: "Real. Canadian. Motherly. Wisdom"
This Toronto raccoon has perfected the horror movie hand reaching from the dark pose and will stop at nothing for some cat food.
The devious creature reportedly broke into Al Runt, a Toronto artist, East York home in mid-June 2021 and ended up in his vent.
Runt told Narcity that he was up late one night in the middle of June watching TV with his cat when a raccoon crept in through his cat's door and began to help itself to its food.

According to Runt, the raccoon had been trying to ply his screen door open for days prior. The raccoon had squished itself between the screen door and the solid door and pushed through the cat door and into Runt's home.
"I go down there and try to chase him out, leave a window open," says Runt, "So I corner him there and figure it's fine. He'll just make his way through the back window, whatever."
At around 3:30 a.m. or 4:00 a.m. in the morning, Runt began hearing scratching coming from the kitchen. The critter had climbed up to the kitchen's non-functional vent from the basement and continued to eat by straining its little arms under the lifted vent and into the cat bowl.
Despite the annoyance when Runt saw the raccoon clawing its way up through the vent, he says, "My heart just went out, and I thought I love you so much."
"I mean, of course their bothersome creatures but you got to admire their ingenuity."
The raccoon escaped through the window by the following morning and no charges were pressed.
"It worries me and it's my job to worry on behalf of Ontarians and I met with experts at the science table today to look at, given our level of protection today, the great immunization protection of 80 percent that we've achieved, what does the fall look like," he stated.
Moore announced that the province will likely see a rise in COVID-19 cases in September, October and November. He also revealed that the government's mandatory mask policy will remain in place to decrease transmissions during these times.
"We have another six months that could be difficult, but will get through it together," he added.
However, the doctor revealed that the province won't be under regulations forever. "You have my commitment that we will be following the data and when the coast is clear and the threat is diminished, we will remove the public health measures."
