If you were a fan of Pizza Rat, allow me to introduce you to our new friend, Trash Ferret. Although ferrets generally have a reputation for being quite stinky, this one ferret is challenging our previous perceptions by helping its owners out with some spring cleaning.

Photographs of these adorable sloth-kitten hybrids, called “slittens,” began surfacing on web designer Rachael Aslett’s Tumblr blog in early July. Although they’re definitely the product of photo editing, a Sept. 26 post on the blog claims otherwise.

Meet Didga the cat, skateboarder extraordinaire. Watch Didga around her Australian hometown on her board, jumping over dogs and looking generally unfazed at just how absurd it is that she’s a cat on a skateboard. How her owner managed to train her to do this is beyond me, but I am all kinds of impressed. More »
Say hello to Oscar the llama, who has learned how to adorably fetch a sock like a puppy. Who knew llamas could skip like that? Who knew llamas could play fetch? And unlike a golden retriever, you can actually use your adorable llama’s fur for yarn. Or, you know, Internet fame. [Daily Picks & Flicks]… More »
Are you going to deny him his only joy in life? Let the puppy shake your hand, okay? Do it now, before he grows bigger and wants to smother you with his furry body. … More »
This week, we heard about Chris P. Bacon, the piglet on wheels, and a goldfish who floats with the help of a harness. You thought you had things hard, you ain’t got nothin’ on these physically challenged animals.

Look at this guy, all excited to be pushed in his swing, waiting patiently for the moment some kind person will come along and give him a nice strong push. Yeah guy, I totally feel you. [Reddit] … More »
White lions are incredibly rare: a majority of their population is kept in zoos because of a (recently-dispelled) belief that they could not survive in the wild, and another large part are bred in South African camps for “canned hunting” purposes, which makes me want to say, “Fuck this whole being human thing.” There are… More »
Would that we could all have the nonchalant attitude of Claw Crane Cat, nonplussed by the large grabby crane that seems to be continually invading his personal space. This Russian kitty just keeps on idly grooming himself amidst the arcade hubbub. What a zen pro. [The Daily What] … More »
This video of a bunch of ragdoll kittens (18 of them!) playing with a bunch of ducklings is almost too much. It’s kind of the cutest mosh pit ever. [Neatorama] … More »
This is Reginald the Persian kitten. He’s getting a bath, which is bad enough. But after the bath, he’ll be treated to a special blow dry. Whether he likes it or not. Ugh, Reginald! [YouTube] … More »
A week out from Hurricane Sandy, the East Coast has been hit by a new storm — a snowy, slushy Nor’easter. Dear Mayan Prophecy, we get it! We get it! It’s with that in mind that I think all of us over in these here parts (and heck, just about everyone) would benefit frm adding… More »

This is why I will always love Philadelphia: Because only in Philadelphia will a dude ride around on his bike with a kitten on his back. This is YouTube user RudiElias86, and in addition to being totally adorable, he’s also forged a special bond with his little kitten MJ, who goes everywhere with him. [Philebrity]… More »
America, we have a fox obesity problem. And when you feed your pet foxes marshmallows, you’re not helping the cause. Okay, kidding, this fox was an orphan rescued as a baby, and he gets a marshmallow treat once a year on the anniversary of his adoption. Watch this little guy bury some of the marshmallows… More »
Sorry, but we’re kind of obsessed with Unimpressed Cat, whose real name is (unfortunately) Tard. Here, thankfully, his owners give us our first moving images of this impossibly grumpy little beast. … More »
