Stand Up, Pussycat, Whoa, Whoa!

You wouldn’t think that when cats stand up on their hind legs that they would get 1,000 times cuter. But they do. Watch and learn. [Koreus]…

Girls Ruin Everything For Boys

Here’s the thing. All Geoffrey wanted to do was have a good time at the zoo. Since Geoffrey is only four, you wouldn’t think that would be too much to ask. Unfortunately, the universe was not working in Geoffrey’s favor on zoo-trip day, and everything went to hell in a hand basket faster…

Cat Gives Birth To A Dog?!

Yesterday, we discussed dealbreaker pets. Would any of you be opposed to dating someone with a catdog? This woman Georgia claims her cat gave birth to a dog — the little kittypup has the tail and ears of its mommy, but the rest of the body is more dog-like. Shut the front door! Apparently,…

New Upsetting Trend: Pets With Twitter Accounts

Twitter user Medlar wants to share his thoughts with the world. Yesterday he Tweeted, “I don’t think big turtles ever sleep.” Okay. I guess I’ll take his word for it considering he is um, a turtle, and a common, snapping one with impaired vision at that. His @turtlefeed has 368 followers. That’s like hundreds more…

This little pig, who is a resident of Pennywell Farm in England, is looking pretty darn cute with his Paddington Bear red Wellington boots. These rai…

Should You Treat Your Man Like You Do Your Dog?

I had no sooner finished dry-heaving over my friend’s tale of the ordeal involved in getting her dog’s anal glands expressed, when I stumbled upon yet another article—written by a psychologist named Dr. Suzanne Phillps, Psy.D—extolling the benefits of treating your partner as you do your pet. I understand that it’s hard to think about…

Arizonans Upset Over $21 Lion Burgers. Wait, What? Lion Burgers?

This morning I saw a news story in a tawdry tabloid that I read (just for fun, I swear!) about some restaurant in Arizona that was serving lion burgers and getting the meat from a “free-range farm in Illinois.” A free-range lion farm? Ha-ha, I thought. People who edit tabloids sure are gullible and dumb.

A Pony Face Only A 6-Year-Old Loved

Meet Diego. He was born with a rare condition that left his face disfigured and would have been euthanized if 6-year-old Maddison Biddlecombe hadn’t fallen in love with him, despite his abnormal appearance. Now, Maddison’s mom is hoping to raise £4,000 so Diego can undergo an operation by an equine dentist. Kids can be so…

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. At UStream.tv, watch owls and eagles on feeds that air non-stop. Oh, and there’s also the bear cam, as well as channels for cats, squirrels, and other assorted critters. You ca…

American Kennel Club Welcomes Mutts For The First Time

For the first time in its 125-year history, the American Kennel Club is allowing mutts to compete alongside pure breeds in their dog shows. OK, so not in every category; mixed breeds are only allowed to compete in the skills-based competitions like Agility, Rally and Obedience. But the message is clear — the organization whose…

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…

Mugabe To Gift A “Noah’s Ark” To Kim Jong-il

Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe has plans to send two of several animal species living in Zimbabwe’s 14,600 kilometer Hwange National Park to North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong-il. The “Noah’s Ark” is meant as a gift of gratitude to Kim for allowing the North Korea national soccer team to train in Zimbabwe. Two 18-month-old elephants, black…

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. It seems Vincent Van Gogh, as they’ve aptly named the badger with one ear, had some hard-knock…

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.
