Earlier this week, important news broke: a mutt named Lejon adopted white lion cub JoJo after JoJo’s mom became sick and was unable to take care of her. They’re the best of friends, and oh my God, my mind is exploding from the combined cuteness. Make. It. Stop.
But Lejon is hardly the only animal to take up caring for another species in need. After the jump, we’ve got several more surprising (and super cute) inter-species adoptions.
Pack it up, everyone! It’s time to go home: this is the cat video to end all cat videos. And it’s super trippy, so grab your glowsticks and your cat and rock out. [Vimeo via The Atlantic]
Okay, stop what you’re doing, because your world is about to be rocked by a tiny gimpy cat thing called Lil Bub. Bub was born with a deformed elongated body, bulging eyes, missing teeth and extra toes — and she’s also a perma-kitten. So, basically she’s the perfect cat. Her owner Mike (Who is hot! Hubba hubba!) brought Bub to NYC to appear on “Good Morning America’ and visit various city hotspots. Bub was shockingly nonplussed. But I guess that’s kind of what we’d expect from LB. Watch and enjoy Ms. Bub yourself.
Tonight, the Olympics Opening Ceremony will kick off two weeks of elite competition from the most incredible athletes in the world.

Contrary to what you may have heard, teeny tiny purse dogs are not just for girls like Paris Hilton. They’re the perfect pet for on-the-go aging rockstars like Steven Tyler! His little Yorkshire Terrier is so teeny I almost didn’t notice him/her. Very discrete, a word I’d never thought I’d use in a post about Steven Tyler. [Photos: INFDaily]
Gooooood morning! Let’s kick this Monday off right with something universally adorable and awesome — dogs surfing! In this video from Bing, we meet Abbie Girl, the winner of the 2012 Dog Surfing competition and watch, through her eyes, as she rides her way to victory. Now that’s bitchin’. [Bing]
Dear Russian Bear Patrol Officer Vladilen Kavriy Who Sings Lullabies To Polar Bears,
First of all, can we talk about how rad it is that your job title is “Bear Patrol Officer”? Does it say that on your business cards? Do you have anyone to give business cards to in places where polar bears live? Anyway, I thought being a blogger was cool, but your job sounds way better.
Second of all, I think I’m in love with you. Keep reading »
The mayor of a sleepy Alaska town is feline fine. The part-Manx cat clawed his way onto the political scene of Talkeetna, Alaska, through a write-in campaign shortly after he was born 15 years ago.
