Your Daily Squee: Week-Old Baby Goats Learning To Jump!

I recently signed up for a Google alert for the phrase "baby goat," which means whenever anything happens on the internet that concerns baby goats, Google sends me an email. The first baby goat alert I got was about a taxidermist who was making hats out of baby goats. So traumatizing. I almost shut off…

This Baby Lamb Is Stinkin’ Cute

Actually, it's a baby Mouflon. A Mouflon is a type of wild sheep with big horns. So technically this is a baby lamb, but if you ask me, she looks more like a baby deer. Anyway. The cuteness is indisputable. Go on. Try and dissuade me. Nope, you can't do it. [YouTube]…

This is Mug. This little cat is owned by my friends Renee and Tom, and I'm absolutely obsessed with her. No, me and Mug have never actually formally met, but that hasn't stopped me from "liking" her Facebook page and spending at least a good two to 10 minutes going over her ridiculou…

10 Animals That Are Total A**Holes

So last week, the Facebook page "I Fucking Love Science" posted a picture of this horrible little creature, a mouth-infesting isopod called cymothoa exigua that crawls into the mouths of fish and eats their tongues. Seriously? Dick move, bro. I mean, look at its smug little face. Ugh. This awful parasite got me thinking about other…

21 Baby Animals Being Bottle Fed

I'm in love.  I'm in love with a baby gorilla.  His name is Nyambe and he was rejected by his gorilla mommy, who sounds like a fucking bitch, because LOOK AT THAT FACE.

All The Things Maru Can Do With His Paws

Once this guy I was messaging with on an online dating website starting talking about the "holy trinity of Internet cats: Lil Bub, Maru, and Grumpy Cat." I asked him to marry me. He didn't respond. That's what popped into my head when I saw Maru had a new video out about all the thing…

I Need An 0.8 Inch Micro Crochet Mohair Panda

My big sister Allison egregiously aids and abets my panda obsession. She is the one responsible for almost all my panda crap, most of which sits on the bookshelf above my desk at work: panda mug, panda PEZ dispenser, panda eraser, twin panda Christmas ornaments, a panda figurine, and a panda T-shirt. Now, I have…

Baby Panda Goes For A Checkup At The San Diego Zoo

Last time we checked in with Xiao Liwu, the baby panda at the San Diego Zoo, he was more fluffy and roly-poly.  These days, the 26-week-old panda cub is looking more like an actual bear than a puffball, but he's still as wiggly as can be. All together now: Squeeeeeee!

Did Somebody Say Rare White Lion Cubs?

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…
