Kendra Velzen, a 28-year-old student at Grand Valley State University in Michigan, suffers from depression and uses a pacemaker. Her pet guinea pig, Blanca, helps her cope with the stress of day-to-day life. Or, as Velzen’s lawyer put it: “The presence of an emotional support animal provides Ms. Velzen with continued emotional support and attachment (thereby reducing symptoms of depression), physiological benefits (such as decreased heart rate), and psychological benefits (such as increased Oxytocin levels, which directly impact the sense of life satisfaction).” For these reasons, the university agreed to make an exception to their “no pets” rule and allowed Velzen to keep Blanca in her dorm room.

Seriously? Dick move, bro. I mean, look at its smug little face. Ugh. This awful parasite got me thinking about other members of the animal kingdom that are just unapologetic assholes.

21 Baby Animals Being Bottle Fed

I’m in love.  I’m in love with a baby gorilla.  His name is Nyambe and he was rejected by his gorilla mommy, who sounds like a fucking bitch, because LOOK AT THAT FACE. Nyambe now lives at the Cincinnati Zoo, where zookeepers take turns wearing gorilla outfits and snuggling him while “speaking” in various gorilla noises. Also, he wears diapers.

For human babies I know that breast is best. I fully support the right of any Siberian tiger or marmoset to nurse her hungry child in any Walmart, Starbucks, or public park!  But dangit, there is something just too cute about a baby animal sucking on a plastic bottle.  Click through for 20 more…
