Happy Hump Day! Here’s A Micro Pig So Blissed Out By A Belly Rub That She Falls Over

This Pig Has It Made

Good morning! This micro pig is loving her feather duster belly rub so much that she reclines with glee and makes a sound that I can only assume is the piggy version of purring. The lesson I’m going to take from this is that micro pigs are pretty much equally adorable, equally cuddly versions of cats. [Laughing Squid]

This Little Girl Cuddling With A Tibetan Mastiff Is Living My Wildest Dream

A Real-Life Stuffed Animal

Simba the Tibetan Mastiff is about as low-key as dogs get. Weiwei, his little human friend, gets to play with, sing to, and climb all over Simba to her heart’s content, and I’m profoundly jealous. [BoingBoing]

Urine Trouble At Albuquerque’s BioPark Zoo

Urine Trouble At Albuquerque's BioPark Zoo

Spend any time at any zoo and you’re bound to catch the scent of animal waste.

That’s how it is at the Albuquerque’s BioPark Zoo, but it’s not the zoo animals that are stinking up the joint. It’s the human visitors.

Park employees have recently been finding puddles of urine near the polar bear exhibit, and suspect that it’s the results of kids who couldn’t quite make it to the bathroom, according to KOAT TV. Read more at Huffington Post Weird News…

Somebody Take Me To A Kitten-Themed Wedding

My Invitation Must Have Gotten Lost In The Mail

Happily Wedding, a wedding planning company in California, has opened up a whole new market — cat weddings. In case kitten-themed seating arrangements, feline cake toppers, the “glitter box,” and stationery marked “Furrever” wasn’t enough to make the perfect wedding day for cat-loving couple Kiera and Zach, they were then treated to the surprise arrival of kittens brought in specially to witness their wedding. I hope the cats had fun and didn’t feel too much like props, but if the video is any indication, it looks like their adventure that day was just as epic as the newlyweds’. To support the homeless kitties, Happily asked that anyone looking to adopt contact the Second Hand Souls Animal Rescue and Animal Actors. For cat loving ladies like myself, this ceremony may sound too good to be true, but a day like this can be yours for a cool $25,000. (What, you didn’t just have that laying around for your someday fantasy wedding?) Congrats to the happy couple! [The Gloss]

Cheetah Cub And Puppy Play Together At The San Diego Zoo

Cheetah
Best Friends Forever

After Ruuxa the cheetah cub was rejected by his mother, zookeepers at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park paired him up with Raina, a Rhodesian ridgeback puppy. Their friendship was set up as part of the zoo’s animal ambassador program, which creates unlikely bonds between different critters.  And it worked: the new buds are now over three months old and exploring new parts of the park together. They’re being raised alongside each other to create a special bond, with Raina helping Ruuxa feel relaxed in stressful settings. Some of their play fighting is training for Ruuxa to become part of the park’s Cheetah Run experience  — and it’s pretty darn cute.  [NBC]

Not Exaggerating

I know the internet is the land of hyperbole, especially when it comes to cats. But for real, everyone, anointing this kitten getting a belly rub as “The Cutest Ever Cat Video On The Internet” seems pretty spot-on to me.  I dare you to disagree with me. [Love Meow]
