Surprise! There’s An Alligator In Your Bathroom!


You hear these stories from time to time about supremely unlucky people who find creatures camping out in their bathrooms. Didn’t someone find a python in their toilet? I like to tell myself that it’s an urban legend in order to self-soothe. But this news item, I cannot ignore. Florida woman, Alexis Dunbar, was beside herself when she discovered a 7-foot alligator had taken up residence in her guest bathroom. Apparently, the alligator had been stalking her cats as a possible food source and entered the house through the doggie door. She came home to find the gator hissing and hungry. NOT OK. Help me forget … please! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Pretty Pigeon Pageant

This attractive pigeon was a contestant at the National Pigeon Show, where the National Pigeon Association proved that the creatures are more than rats with wings. I wonder how many hours she spent curling her feathers. Probably a lot. Anyhow, my point being, pigeons have every right to get glammed up and strut their stuff. It seems like a great way for a pigeon to build self-esteem while developing the grace and poise that will take her far in life. I totally support pigeon pageants as long as they are not full glitz. A pigeon with a flipper and a spray tan? That’s just taking it too far. [The Gothamist] Keep reading »

I Need A Petite Lap Giraffe

The mini-lap giraffe in the DirecTV ads is now for sale! You can buy your lap giraffe today from Sokolovsky Farms, Russia’s finest purveyor of Petite Lap Giraffes. Ok, not really. It’s an ad campaign. But you can still waste time watching the little critters on a live web cam or finding out pet care tips at PetiteLapGiraffe.com. See “Vladimir” and other “PGLs” go about their daily business, like taking bubble baths, lounging on couches, and eating bonsai trees. Fun facts: A full-size adult PGL only grows to be about 30 inches tall and sleep in a box like a cat. I know, I’m in denial. I still think I’ll own one someday. It can happen.

Meet The Black Arrow, A Lady Superhero Who Saves Abused Pets

I love a superheroine as much as the next feminist, especially one who loves the fuzzy am-i-nals as much as I do. Meet “Black Arrow,” an anonymous British woman who fights evil in the form of people who abuse their pets. “I make sure people aren’t abusing their animals,” Black Arrow told The Sun newspaper. “I serve justice to those who deserve it. We stand for those who cannot, because we can.” (Unfortunately, the tabloid-eriffic Sun didn’t get a single detail on just how Black Arrow does this.) For six years, the London lass has stuck up for animals who are abused — presumably without crassly objectifying women in the process. You hear that, PETA?

Ryan Gosling Talks To Animals

Oh my god, you guys, I think I just died a little inside. Ryan Gosling went to a zoo (with Evan Rachel Wood, but let’s ignore that fact because I refuse to entertain the notion that anything could be going on there) in Cincinnati and took all sorts of adorable photos with animals. I would like Ryan to look at me the way he is staring adoringly at this beast. Perhaps if I strap his head in just right… Check out more photos of Ryan Gosling making friends with animals, after the jump! [Cincinnati Zoo via ONTD] Keep reading »
