Remember Meow, the 39-pound fat cat that stole America’s heart? Sadly, Meow passed away, but there’s a new Meow. Her name is Skinny, and when she was found, she was 41 pounds. Now, say her vets at the East Lake Pet Orphanage in Dallas, Texas, Skinny has dropped a tiny bit of weight and is down to 37 pounds. Godspeed on your journey, Ms. Skinny. [NBC]

Bamboo asparagus!

Guys, it’s been a rough week here in New York and the surrounding areas. We feel a little beat up and spit out — a bit like Cooper, stuck here in a cute as hell panda suit against his will. Much of the region is still totally fucked, and could really use your thoughts, prayers and support. If you want to help, please check out this list of resources. Alternatively, if you simply want to enjoy a couple minutes of cuteness, we can get behind that, too. [YouTube]

Baby Hedgehog Gets Stuck In A Chip Bag, Requires Dramatic 3-Hour Rescue

Pig Rescues Drowning Goat!
You have got to watch this video, you guys. Read More »

Sometimes a hedgehog just wants to crawl into a chip bag and enjoy a snack in private, you know? But when a baby hedgehog in a British seaside town acted on his salty snack impulses, things took a harrowing turn: he became stuck in the chip bag. A shopkeeper nearby heard rustling and saw a tiny hedgehog nose emerge from the bag, but the animal was in a railed off area and couldn’t be reached. Prickles Hedgehog Rescue was called in to handle the delicate extraction, workers cut through the railings, and three and a half hours later, the little guy was saved from his plastic bag dungeon. The hungry, hungry hedgehog–now named Crispian, in honor of his penchant for crisps–was cold and dehydrated but is expected to make a full recovery. Godspeed Crispian, godspeed. [BBC News]

Miranda Kerr Was A Koala & 11 Other Celebs’ Past Lives

In this life, Miranda Kerr is Esquire magazine’s “Sexiest Woman Alive.” But in a past life, Miranda is  convinced she was a koala. Why is she so sure she was a little furry marsupial, munching eucalyptus leaves?

“I like to climb. I find it very rewarding,” she explained. “I don’t like going down. I like going up.” It figures as an Australian, she would identify with a koala — had she grown up in the U.S., she might have just thought she was a squirrel! [Telegraph UK]

Miranda Kerr is just one of many, many, many celebrities who are convinced this life is not their first spin around the globe. And some of their reasoning is … out there … to put it kindly.

Let Me Pet You: Orphaned Walrus Edition

Hey, a baby is still a baby — even if that baby happens to weigh a couple hundred pounds. This is Pakak, one of two orphaned baby walruses who are being cared for by the staff at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska. Palak, and his brother Mitik were orphaned after becoming separated from their herd, and are apparently really, really into cuddling. Local reporter Kate O’Malley visited the siblings and found them super endearing. “They lumbered right over to me and photographer Marc Lester and smacked us with their velvety bowling ball heads. Then they started barking,” she wrote. “They sounded like a couple of smokers hacking into a megaphone.” Smokers hacking into a megaphone! Adorable!

Sadly, the two will be separated — off to the Indianapolis Zoo and the New York Aquarium, respectively. But for now, they can cuddle with the staff — and each other. Check out one more amazing pic after the jump. Keep reading »
