Meet Baby Kabibe & Momma Bawang

It’s the holidays, which means over the next couple days your mother / parental figure is going to completely annoy the shit out of you.  Because no one wants to feel like a holiday Grinch, I thought I might I remind you of your first, best defense in holiday burnout: adorable baby animals. Meet baby Kabibe, an gorilla at the San Francisco Zoo who was adopted by clan matriarch Bawang. She’s serving as a surrogate mother for the five-month-old baby gorilla, which at this point means lugging the baby around on her back. You know, like mommies everywhere. Aww! [Laughing Squid]

Cats Take Over Nativity

I don’t know about you, but I am physically incapable of talking to an adorable pet without using a weird hybrid of baby talk reserved solely for encounters with animals. Even in high-stakes social situations that require me to act like a total grown-up, I can help but melt into pieces when a puppy walks into the room and start talking to the dog like he’s a toddler. Thankfully, I’m not the only one! TheAwoman, who is some kind of recruiter, thought she had hung up the phone after leaving a voicemail when she starts singing to her … dog? She could be sweet-talking a child, a cat, or anything in between. But whoever the recipient is, the message is nothing short of adorable. Lyrics like “I love my little beary-kins. You can stay here!” and “My little carebear, I love my little beary-boy” remind us that nobody is immune to cute puppy-talk. You can listen to the clip on Deadspin. It’s so embarrassing, it’s cute.

This Chihuahua Can Really Relate To Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts”

I have no idea why this Chihuahua named Rosie Pig is wearing a wig and a turtleneck, clutching ice cream, while Bey’s “Pretty Hurts” plays in the background —  but it’s a pretty accurate depiction of what I’m going to be doing in about 45 minutes. [Vine via Buzzfeed]

Keeping Cats As Pets Began 5,000 Years Ago

lil bub

It might be hard to believe, but cats weren’t always domesticated pets. Once upon a time, someone actually invited these tyrants into the house and the rest, as they say, is history.

According to recent findings, the first wild cat (or what we now call a stray) began hanging out with humans maybe over 5,000 years ago. While excavating a Stone Age village in China, researchers have found the earliest evidence of cats and humans — their first step in becoming the pets (and Internet stars) we love today.

Baby Jesus Nativity Scene Is Taken Over By Cats

Gold, frankincense, myrrh … and kitties? A snuggly bunch of feral cats have taken over a nativity scene in Brooklyn, laying in the manger between Mary and Joseph like they belong there instead of baby Jesus. The two sisters who display the nativity every year told People magazine that the kitties always knock Jesus off his bed of hay. What would you expect? They’re cats. That’s their hay now. But in all seriously, this gives me a big case of the Awwwwwws. Nothing says the Christmas spirit quite like giving a warm, dry place to sleep for some homeless animals. I think Jesus would approve.

Crow Makes Sled Out Of Mayonnaise Lid, Has Best Snow Day Ever

Wheeeeeeeeeeee!

My mom and I are a lot alike, but one way in which we differ is that she loves bird and I think they are gross not cool dinosaurs. Especially the big ones. GAG. So, my mom loves to send me photos of birds she thinks are beautiful but knows will scare me — it’s a bonding thing. But when she posted this video on her Facebook page, featuring a crow who is using an old mayonnaise lid to SLED DOWN A DAMN ROOF, I was like, “Bird, I respect you for that.” I am down with his DIY snow day fun. It is almost cute. Okay, it is cute, but don’t tell anyone I said that. [Death & Taxes]
