The Acro-Cats Are Cats That Actually Follow Directions

Cats that actually listen to you?!?

Oh, I’m sorry, were you talking to me? I’m a little distracted by this acrobatic cat troupe. They’re called the Amazing Acro-Cats, and they’re a 13-cat touring troupe of feline talent. Their owner/Cat Leader is Next Level Crazy Cat Lady Samantha Martin, who’s trained her cats to do actual tricks. Do you know how hard it is to teach a cat to do anything? Anything?  Listen, I love Colonel Mustard, but he is a raging, non-compliant cat jerk and won’t do anything I ask (up to and including actually covering his poop in the litter box). So these guys? They are brilliant little cat angels. [Boston Magazine]

SAVE THAT DOG!

Today in Precious Creature news, please join me in watching this riveting video of a terrified Chow-Chow trapped on a window ledge in Brooklyn. I’m not sure what this little dude was doing. Perhaps he was hungry? Maybe he wanted an Italian Ice. Most likely, he was hot under all that fur, smelled some barbecue wafting from a local block party, heard the stereo bumpin’ The Gap Band and wanted to join in. Whatever the deal is, glad you made it out, little guy. [Gothamist]

Oh Mini Pig, I Think We All Feel The Same Way About Ice Cream

There are really only two ways to deal with super hot summer weather: 1) learn to own your boob sweat, because there’s just no way to avoid it, and 2) eat ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream. This mini pig knows what’s up, and its facial expression is one we’ve all made before after making a desperate visit to Baskin Robbins for a couple scoops of that cool, creamy relief. Aaaahhhh.

Kitten Wasabi-chan was brutally injured by an errant crow attack as a stray on the streets of Japan. A kind passerby picked up Wasabi-chan and decided to care for her. Wasabi’s jaw was damaged and she required regular tube feedings, but hated having the tube stuck down her throat. So her owners came up with a novel solution: knit cute-as-hell costumes for Wasabi-chan to wear while being fed, that would prevent her from pulling her feeding tube out. In addition to her cheeky mushroom look, Wasabi-chan’s also worn hot pink and more — peep them after the jump. [Metro] Keep reading »

As is well documented on this site and my Instagram “about me” section, I am hopelessly obsessed with goats, especially baby goats and pygmy goats and fainting goats — OK, nevermind, I just love ALL THE GOATS. Why am I so enraptured with these bouncy little creatures? Allow me to explain in the most eloquent, concise possible way: a series of adorable goat GIFs… Keep reading »

Is This Kitten Trying To Kill Me With Cuteness?

Further vs. farther? Who knows?

Nevermind that ukulele player and singer DeAnne Smith is downright scrumptiously funny and witty. All that’s true. But this video moves up a notch from achingly cute to scorchingly adorable with the addition of DeAnne’s kitten, who seems to think he can strum the ukulele just as well as she can. [Laughing Squid]

Baby Goat Video
It's a baby goat pile-on!

If I subscribed to subjective reality and believed that every person I cross paths with in life is actually a figment of my imagination who appears to teach me some cosmic lesson, I would be very certain that the woman in this video exists to teach me to deal with extreme levels of jealousy in a healthy way. Because watching her get knocked over and cuddled by a herd of adorable baby goats while giggling and exclaiming, “They’re very soft!” is almost too much for me to handle. Sigh. And if watching this sequence of events wasn’t difficult enough, the video is titled “Soft Baby Goat Love Pile,” which is the exact phrase I have written in Sharpie marker on my vision board. I need to go meditate now. [YouTube]

Maltey Cyrus Spoofs Miley With "We Can Bark"
"I'm a puppy, I can do what I want!"

I’ve been playing the latest Miley Cyrus song “We Can’t Stop” on repeat for weeks now and my dog Lucca is starting to get really, really annoyed. Luckily, her ears perked up when I put on this dog-inspired remake of the song by Maltey Cyrus called “We Can Bark.” Says Lucca: “This version is much better, Mom.” [The Pet Collective]

Meet Lentil, The French Bull Dog Puppy Who Helps Kids With Facial Abnormalities
We Love Lentil!

Get ready to squee and cry at the same time. Little five-month-old Lentil was born with a cleft palate and a cleft lip, and was the only member of his litter to survive. Because of these issues, Lentil wasn’t able to eat or drink on his own. He needed constant care and so Lindsay Condefer, a volunteer with the French Bull Dog Rescue Network of Philadelphia, brought Lentil to live with her, and blogged about the experience on the Facebook page My Name Is Lentil. This adorable pup quickly developed a fan base that has grown to over 90,000 followers — and now he’s giving back. Lentil had surgery to correct his cleft palate but still has a cleft lip, and his “different” appearance has led him to volunteer with a program where kids with certain conditions meet animals with the same conditions. ”It’s sort of a pet therapy where people can relate a little bit more with those pets that have gone through things that they’ve gone through as well,” said Dr. Jesse Taylor, a plastic surgeon at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, who consulted on Lentil’s palate surgery.

Lentil is a serious rock star at the hospital and has already visited with hundreds of children. Pfeiffer, 14, who has a genetic condition called Saethre-Chotzen syndrome which affects the shape of the head and face, told CNN, ”He doesn’t look like, you know, a regular dog. So that kind of makes him special, so it probably makes kids who have something that I have, makes them feel special.” So wonderful. Video above! [CNN]

Gibson, The French Bulldog Frightened By Its Own Farts
Gibson Is Bewildered By His Own Farts

I believe this video of of Gibson, the French bulldog who appears to be bewildered by the flatulence coming out of his own ass, counts as a Mercury retrograde reward. It certainly lifts my spirits considering I’ve often felt the exact same way: deeply confused. Yes, about farts. But also about other things. I’m sure Gibson understands what I mean. I’ve often dreamed of having a pet who understood me on a deep level like that. Since my dog Mandy passed away in the late ’90, I haven’t had a dog connection like that. Gibson, be mine. I don’t care that you’re a gassy canine. We will fart together and be confused about life. [Videogum]
