Baby goat gifs

As is well documented on this site and my Instagram “about me” section, I am hopelessly obsessed with goats, especially baby goats and pygmy goats and fainting goats — OK, nevermind, I just love ALL THE GOATS. Why am I so enraptured with these bouncy little creatures? Allow me to explain in the most eloquent, concise possible way: a series of adorable goat GIFs… Keep reading »

Baby Goat Video
It's a baby goat pile-on!

If I subscribed to subjective reality and believed that every person I cross paths with in life is actually a figment of my imagination who appears to teach me some cosmic lesson, I would be very certain that the woman in this video exists to teach me to deal with extreme levels of jealousy in a healthy way. Because watching her get knocked over and cuddled by a herd of adorable baby goats while giggling and exclaiming, “They’re very soft!” is almost too much for me to handle. Sigh. And if watching this sequence of events wasn’t difficult enough, the video is titled “Soft Baby Goat Love Pile,” which is the exact phrase I have written in Sharpie marker on my vision board. I need to go meditate now. [YouTube]

Your Daily Squee: Who Knew Freshly Shaved Alpacas Would Be This Cute?

I have mixed feelings about alpacas because when I was growing up I lived next door to an alpaca farm, and let me tell you: those creatures are moodier than the vampires from Twilight. However, this photo, taken on shearing day at a German alpaca farm, is placing me firmly on team pro-alpaca. I mean, look at those smooth bellies and fuzzy little heads! After the jump, check out some mugshot-style closeups of the freshly shaven herd that literally made me say, “Squeeeeee!” out loud. Keep reading »

Pug Party: 10 Random, Adorable Facts About Pugs

My neighbors have an 8-week-old pug puppy that is perhaps the cutest creature who has ever graced this Earth. Right now its head is a bit too big for its body, so as it toddles around the yard it usually tips over, and then just starts chewing on whatever is in the immediate vicinity of where its mouth landed. Oh, and its name is BELUSHI. Seriously, I can’t even handle how cute this dog is. Whenever I see it come out in the yard I just stare at it moaning like Tina from “Bob’s Burgers” until my boyfriend is like, “Seriously, you have to stop doing that.” I wouldn’t be surprised if this dog takes out a restraining order against me at some point.

My love for Belushi made me want to write something pug-related, and I was reading up about these little dogs I thought, Hey, why not a list of fun pug facts?! Because sometimes I like to pretend I write for Highlights magazine instead of The Frisky. Ready for a pug fact party? Here we go! Keep reading »

Sex with goats?

I don’t know about you, but to me, nothing screams “hilarity” quite like bestiality.

In no-one-gets-the-joke news, Shuan Keith Orris was arrested for disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon after things got violent when questioning bar patrons about their thoughts on fornicating with goats. He was apparently making the rounds at a Wisconsin bar, asking the strangers if they thought it was their Constitutional right to have sex with goats. You know, typical small talk.

Go Fetch, Little Buddy

This week, we were dismayed to learn that large snakes can open doors on their own now. But there is a silver lining. Before you get swallowed in one gulp by a python, The Little Prince-style, this adorable otter can crawl into a vending machine and fetch you an icy cold Diet Coke.  So, kind of a wash.  [Laughing Squid]

Finally, A Suit Of Armor Fit For A Guinea Pig

“Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable? Do they get picked on by other guinea pigs? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go with you to a Renaissance Faire but had nothing to wear? Fear not! A solution is here!”

This is the text of an eBay listing for the majestic suit of guinea pig armor and matching helmet shown above. Apparently the suit was handmade for the guinea pig in the photo, Lucky, who unfortunately passed away before he was able to use his armor for anything other than a couple photoshoots. His owner is now auctioning off Lucky’s outfit to the highest bidder, and donating all proceeds to Virginia’s Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue. The current winning bid? Over $8,000. Yes, seriously. Lucky’s legacy will live on for quite some time. [eBay via Digital Spy]

Hide Your Kids

New thing to be afraid of: SNAKES KNOW HOW TO OPEN DOORS NOW. We’re not sure if this is a python or a boa constrictor, but we all agree we are having nightmares tonight. And going to the bathroom in pairs all afternoon. Carrying axes.

Jane Goodall: Still Awesome After All These Years

Style Icon: Jane Goodall
Steal her safari style for yourself! Read More »

Jane Goodall is one of my personal heroes, so I was delighted to see this pair of photos of her — one as a young researcher playing with a chimpanzee in the early 60s, and another more recent shot (below) of her and another chimp enjoying a similarly silly interaction. The only detectable change in the more than 50 years between the two snapshots? A bit of gray hair. Now 79, Goodall has studied three generations of chimpanzees and spends her time mentoring researchers and zoologists who want to follow in her footsteps. She also makes sure to visit her beloved animals at Gombe Stream National Park a couple times a year. “When I’m on my own at Gombe now, I can easily recapture how I felt at 26, when all the world was new,” she told National Geographic. “There’s still a spiritual power there. I can breathe it in.” [National Geographic]
