23 Signs Your Pet Is Actually Your First-Born Child

puppy-pet

The United States birth rate just hit a record low, as more and more twenty- and thirty-somethings are putting off the parenting phase of their lives. But make no mistake, they’re still spoiling, coddling, primping and using baby-talk. It’s just directed at … furrier companions. Have pampered pets become our adorable and adopted, but no less important children? Here are 23 ways that pet ownership is basically parenthood — minus the maternity leave.

The Biggest, Fattest, Hairiest World Records Of 2013

worlds-harriest-cat

By definition, world records are pretty weird. Someone or something does something that has never been done before. But some world records are weirder than others, such as the world’s hairiest cat! This past year, HuffPost Weird News went to great lengths, not just to cover the weird records, but to tell the stories of the people who set them. Check out all of their favorites on Huffington Post … 

Kitten’s Weekly Weigh-Ins Are Ridiculously Cute

Kitten in a scale

Kittens: they grow up so fast! It seems like just yesterday that mine was but a fluffy palm-sized gremlin. (Now he’s a fat-faced, 15-pound young gentleman and a formidable paw-wrestling opponent. That boy is HUSKY.) Himajin Sokuhuo of Japan, who owns a to-die-for tabby, documented his kitten’s growth in a series of 12 photos — the first weigh-in comes in at 70 grams, and the last at 954. But who really cares how much this kitten weighs when it is SO FREAKING CUTE? Check out the full series at RocketNews24!

The Kitten Bowl Is Here, And It’s Smarter, Cleaner, And More Agile Than The Puppy Bowl

The Hallmark Channel will host the Kitten Bowl

The Puppy Bowl is cool and all, but there’s only so long I can watch a bunch of dogs tumbling around before I’m like, “Where them kittens at?” The Hallmark Channel must have heard my plaintive brays, because they confirmed that they will be staging a Kitten Bowl come Super Bowl Sunday 2014. (Also, they announced this back in April, but I must have missed it so I’m going to go ahead and assume you did too.) The network has just announced that Beth Stern (that’s Howard’s wife) will host, Yankees radio announcer John Sterling will give the play-by-play, and — this is the best part — the festivities, featuring 60 to 70 kittens, will run from noon to 9 p.m. It’s perfect, because watching kittens on television is literally the only thing I could feasibly enjoy doing for nine hours straight.

I Am Really Not A Fan Of “Celebrity Cat Impersonator” Betsy Bushytail

Celebrity cat impersonator Betsy Bushytail
Eeeeuuughh ...

In theory, this video of “celebrity cat impersonator” Betsy Bushytail giving us her best Maru should be something I enjoy. It sure sounds like something I’d enjoy, right? But I don’t. I hate it. It’s creepy and horrible and feels like something I should not have seen, like I’ve been violated or am violating in some way. Since one cannot go about unseeing things they have already seen, the only option that remains is to go with the next best decision and share it with you. [via Buzzfeed]

Why Throw A Bouquet At Your Wedding When You Could Throw Cats?

Brides Throwing Cats

If brides were to toss kittens into the crowd for all the single ladiez, I would actually make an effort to grab it. Bouquets, on the other hand, are best handled with a subtle side-step away from whatever direction they’re going in. No cats were harmed in the making of this meme, but it does serve as additional evidence in the case for Photoshopping a cat into every picture ever. So much better! [Brides Throwing Cats]

jarvis the cat

Look, I wouldn’t really eat a cat. Or a cat face. But there are no words for how scrumptiously adorable this little cross-eyed tabby cat is. This is Jarvis P. Weasely, a stray brought to the Saving Grace Animal Rescue in San Francisco, California, when he was just four weeks old. That’s where a woman named Daria found him, and decided to foster him. She explained:

“I used to oversee the kitten fostering program at Oakland Animal Services (OAS) a few years back. When I would go to the shelter, I would always look in on Jarvis because he was soooo adorable and scruffy. I was fostering kittens at my house but I couldn’t take him home as he had a bad URI… Some days he would vertically leap around the kennel which I always assumed were jumps for joy, but more likely he saw ghost. Once the kittens were out of my house, I brought him home to ‘foster’. He never left! He is here, has a home, drives me crazy, and is loved immensely.”

Jarvis has a slight depth perception problem, thanks to the lazy eye, but is otherwise perfectly healthy and happy. And super, super cute. [LoveMeow]

Grumpy Meets Bub!

I consider Lil Bub meeting Grumpy Cat as akin as to when Churchill met with Roosevelt. The two greatest cat powers on the continent, combining forces for cuteness. Watch as Bub and Grumps warily address one another at the second annual Internet Cat Festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is my couch space, Bub says, tongue out, head forward. O RLY? Grumpy Cat responds, unsure of whether to tentatively put one paw forward for peace. How did the meeting end? WIth lots of purrs, we hope. [YouTube]

Cat-holding! You’re doing it wrong. Let Macklemore show you how to properly wrangle and pet a cat — especially one who displays a shocking level of indifference/hatred regarding your very existence. It can be done, and Macklemore can help you do it, but you’ve got to be careful.
