Goose Does A Two-Step When It Gets Bread

Most of our cute animal videos focus on cats and dogs, but every once in awhile, another member of the animal kingdom does something totally charming. Take for instance this bar-headed goose that does a two-step dance every time it gets bread. It doesn’t even need to eat the bread to boogie dow…

The World’s Gone Animal Cam Crazy!

You remember the puppy cam, right? Well, animals cams are officially the latest craze, and they’re kind of like “The Truman Show” for pets.

Doggie Yoga: Pay Good Money To Annoy The Heck Out Of Your Pooch

My dog Lucca does lots of really cute things. She even poops in a cute way — seriously, she looks at me while she’s doing it, like she’s almost ashamed to be in public relieving her bowels. Anyway, one other cute thing she does is dramatic stretching. First she stretches her front legs, the…

A Baby Badger Is Totes Cute Even Without One Ear

The staff at a wildlife hospital in the United Kingdom have no idea how this 8-week-old baby badger lost his outer ear, but they expect him to make a full recovery because there’s no damage to the inside.

Lesbirdians? Turns Out Animals Can Be Gay, Too!

Not sure how I missed this one last week, but according to a New York Times Magazine article, animals can be gay, just like humans. The Laysan albatross, which is considered one of the most monogamous species of birds in the animal kingdom, is not always as heterosexual as scientists once believed. As it tur…

Animal On Yer Phone? Awesome!

I’m one of those iPhone owners who feels totally overwhelmed by the whole app phenomenon—isn’t “app” short for “appetizer”—and as a result has, uh, only two of them. But I am so going to get this one called “Animal Drummer.” It’s a game where you put on some tunes, and make Animal drum away to…

Happy Hump Day: Cat Shows Puppy Who’s Boss

Cats come in two varieties — those that like to be pet and cuddled and nuzzled and those that like to be left the hell alone to clean themselves and sulk. Puppies, on the other hand, are all the same. They want to play! This kitty will not stand for such nonsense.

The more I read about SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau, who was killed yesterday, the sadder I get.
