This Stray Cat Became Best Friends With A Lynx At The Zoo

This Lynx And Cat Are Bffs
So Many Feelings

The Leningrad Zoo in Russia became home to a stray calico cat when she snuck on the property looking for food. She somehow found her way into the zoo’s lynx closure and soon became best friends with the lynx who lived there. When the zoo saw how close they were, they decided to adopt the kitty and let the pair live together. The emotional music in this video is a little excessive, but it does help conjure up lots of thoughts about the beauty of nature and the power of BFFdom – and it also just really makes me wish I were petting a cat.

Tiny Baby Mouse Noms On A Flower

Baby Mouse Eats A Flower
Yum!

I’m usually not one to see rodents as cute. But! This 20-day-old house mouse deserves an exception. The mouse’s human has been raising her and hopes to release her back into the wild when she gets old enough! I wouldn’t be happy if she was in my cupboards gnawing through my cereal boxes, but nibbling on a dandelion? Too precious. [Tastefully Offensive]

Be My Pet: Meet The World’s Shortest Cat

Be My BFF

I am on a mission to make Pixel the Munchkin cat my pet, because we a match made in heaven. Pixel is only five inches tall from shoulder to paw, and at 4’11″, I’m not exactly what you’d call tall. She’s my pet soulmate! Munchkin, whose small size is due to a genetic mutation, is estimated to be the world’s shortest cat. (Her mama was the previous recordholder) Pixel’s human, Tiffani Kjeldergaard, is a breeder of Munchkin cats and has a house full of the kitties. Dream life status! [Tastefully Offensive]

Watch This Beagle Freak Out When He Receives 100 Bouncy Balls For His Birthday

Life Is One Giant Ball Pit

Maymo the lemon beagle had a birthday, and his humans treated him to 100 bouncy balls as a gift. One ball would have been exciting enough, but one hundred!!?  What more could a dog dream of? Maymo is so excited that he tires himself out and we don’t blame him. [Gawker]

What’s The Difference Between A Horse And A Playground? Nothing, If You’re A Baby Goat

Goats Jumping On A Horse!
Let's all jump on the horse!

Reason #4,582 I need a baby goat (or a hundred baby goats, ideally) ASAP: through the eyes of a baby goat, everything is a piece of playground equipment. Even, for example, a very large horse that is trying to take a nap. And isn’t that a great way to look at the world? [Time]

Bear Crashes Birthday Party By Falling Through Family’s Skylight, Proceeds To Eat All The Cupcakes

A Juneau, Alaska, couple was prepping for their child’s birthday party at their home when they received a visit from a surprise party crasher — a 180-pound black bear who fell through the skylight. The couple ran out of the room, but the bear wasn’t about to show himself out before he got a chance to nom on the party cupcakes. I can’t say I blame him. Who would walk away from free cupcakes?

Life Dream Status: Goat Cafes Are Becoming A Thing

Goat Cafe
Fact: Goats Make The Best Dining Companions

You’ve surely heard of cat cafes, where patrons can have a coffee and a bagel while snuggling a furry kitty, but a new kind of animal dining experience may be sweeping the globe soon, one that I’m WAY more excited about: goat cafes. The trend is starting, as so many weird/wonderful dining trends do, in Japan, where Sakuragaoka Cafe has been letting patrons mingle with their two in-house goats for the past few years. The goats have been a huge hit with customers, who come in droves to pet them and bring them treats. Hear that, American restaurateurs? Goat cafes are a thriving business! Let’s make them happen here ASAP, yeah? Even if other people are grossed out by the idea of eating alongside barnyard animals, I will single-handedly keep the venture afloat. Table for 12, please! (That would be me and 11 goats, obvi.) [Modern Farmer]

I Can’t Stop Watching This Baby Owl’s Dance Moves

Check Out Those Moves!

I am oddly mesmerized by this baby owl’s bizarre dance moves. Sure, the little guy is adorable, but something about those wide eyes paired with the music is just a little bit odd. Good thing the cute factor (and those lashes) makes up for it! [Tastefully OffensiveBird Rescue Charitable Trust]

Behold, The Pugs Of Westeros!

Behold, The Pugs Of Westeros!
The Night Is Dark And Full Of Pugs

Phillip and Sue Lauer have (at least) two big passions in life: their pugs Roxy, Blue and Bono, and the book/TV series “Game of Thrones.” Naturally, like any decent dog-obsessed nerds with a lot of time of their hands, they’ve meticulously recreated the HBO show with their pups playing the various characters, including Jon Snow, Joffrey Baratheon and Daenarys Targaryen. There’s even a puppy-sized Iron Throne that took two full days to make! Impressive. [Buzzfeed]

Good News: Baxter, The Shiba Inu Who Was Sold On Craigslist By A Deployed Soldier’s GF, Is Headed Home!

It's Time To Cry: Girlfriend Sells Deployed Soldier's Dog On Craigslist, New Owners Refuse To Give Him Back

Money — and social media pressure — talks! The family who bought a deployed soldier’s dog on Craigslist — without his knowledge — has agreed to return the Shiba Inu named Baxter to the family of his rightful owner. Friends and family of Colorado Army Specialist Robert “Robby” Gabbert say that after mounting social media pressure and a $1,400 reward offer, the family has finally come to their senses and have returned Baxter to them, where he will be cared for until Robby returns from overseas.

Robby had left Baxter in the care of his then-girlfriend, but when he learned she was having issues taking care of the pup, he arranged to have Baxter sent to stay with his parents. Unfortunately, for reasons that still escape me, the girlfriend sold Baxter on Craigslist instead. Initially the family who bought Baxter refused to give him back, as they said their children had “become attached,” but there’s no doubt that the public outcry over this story helped change their tune. (Let’s also hope this story further dissuades people from buying animals on Craigslist. It’s shady as fuck, people.) Here’s to Robby and Baxter being reunited ASAP! [The Daily Dot]
