Your Daily Squee: A Baby Zonkey Was Just Born In Italy!

You guys, I’d like you to meet Ippo the baby zonkey, which is exactly what it sounds like: a donkey/zebra hybrid. Ippo was born a few days ago at an animal reserve in Florence, Italy, after her zebra dad climbed over a fence to get busy with her donkey mom (ahh, romance!). Remember when Gillian Jacobs told us that her personal theme song is “Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey”? Pretty sure it’s time for an updated version: “Ippo the Italian Summer Zonkey.” Ippo is currently the only zonkey in Italy, which seems like something to celebrate. Salute! [ABC News]

Skateboarding Bulldogs, Please Never Change

Look At Him Go!

What is it with you bulldogs and skateboards? Whatever it is, don’t ever change, because bulldog/skateboard shenanigans are a foundational element of all that is right with the world. I’ve witnessed it first hand — for some reason, the bulldog breed is particularly prone to enjoy skateboard hijinks. They can jump on that board for hours. Here, Peruvian Ivan Juscamaita and his bulldog pup Biuf, teach fellow bulldogs how to gleam the cube. Juscamaita says he’s hoping to open an official bulldog skateboarding school in Lima, and donate the profits to animal shelters. We fully support that. [Telegraph]

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 »

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]
