Admit It: If You Had A Kitten As Cute As Kim Kardashian’s, You Would Carry It With You Everywhere, Too

Beyoncé does not want to be friends with Kim Kardashian, so Kim went and got herself a pet kitten. I see what you did there! Fortunately, it’s a cute kitten  — as cute as Choupette, even, and coming from me, that’s saying something.

But I don’t believe that Mercy, the Teacup Persian she named after one of Kanye’s songs, is anything other than an adorable  publicity stunt. Just look at the way she’s carrying Mercy around everywhere in her arms. That’s what giant purses are for, Kimmy.

Bigger IS Better

I pretty much love anything comically oversized, and that goes double for  animals. So you better believe I’m a little bit obsessed with Zeus, the 44-inch tall Great Dane that took top honors as the tallest dog in the world. The Otsego, Michigan, pup is just three-years-old, and stands 7-feet 4-inches when on his hind legs. He weighs a lean 115 pounds, and eats up to 12 cups of food a day (aw, a growing boy!). “Zeus is an awesome dog,” said his owner Denise Dorlag. “The only downside is that everything costs more; the food, medicines, transport. We had to get a van to be able to transport him, oh, and if he steps on your foot – he leaves bruises!” We bet! [Discovery]

All Hail The Celebrity Kingdom

Sometimes I discover a Tumblr so genius that I get jealous, bordering on hostile, that I didn’t think of it myself. Today’s find is The Celebrity Kingdom, which expertly morphs celebrities and their spirit animals. Dammit! Why didn’t I think of that? Seriously, Goose Vilanch is my inspiration for the day. Well, Goose Vilanch and those five cups of coffee I pounded. Hey, whatever keeps you motivated. Click onward to see a few more of my favorite animal/celeb hybrids.

The New Monkey Breed Looks Freakishly Like Messed Up Artwork

You might have heard that scientists discovered a new breed of monkey in the Democratic Republic of Congo, one of which was apparently being kept in captivity by a local schoolteacher like it was no big deal. You might have also heard about a woman in Spain who attempted to restore a 19th century fresco by Elias Garcia Martinez, but ended up botching it beyond belief. What do these two things have in common? Keep reading »

This is Obie, who is quickly gaining fame in his quest to lose weight and become the Dachshund Biggest Loser. His story began when a relative of his owners, an elderly couple in failing health, asked the Oregon Dachshund Rescue for help. They’d been showing Obie love with food and were unable to provide him with physical activity, and now this pup was in trouble. The organization posted a plea on Facebook: could someone foster Obie and help him get healthy? Nora Vanatta, an EMT and veterinary technician from Portland, stepped up to the plate, and when Obie arrived from Seattle, he weighed a whopping 77 pounds. Now this sweet pup is in the process of losing 40 pounds on a low-fat, high-protein diet, and inspiring other overweight canines to get fit with his “Biggest Loser, Doxie Edition” Facebook page, which already has over 33,000 fans. “My hope is that he can be an inspiration to any person or animal trying to lose weight,” says Vanatta. Obie, we’re all cheering for you. [OregonLive]
