Cats live very stressful lives. You might not have known it, because they hide it very well, with all their fur licking, sleeping, pooping and general air of cool detachment and remove. But if this video of a cat enjoying the spoils of a neck massager is any indication, cats need all the relaxation they can get. [YouTube]

Paper Magazine knows what’s up. For their latest editorial fashion shoot, they paired models with puppy dogs, ensuring that even the most hardened fashion cynic would just have to pause and take a look. The photos, shot by photographer Emily Shur, feature models (facing away from the camera, so you never see their faces) cradling pups while wearing some of the latest cool accessories. Take a look!
In 1915, Harry Whittier Frees published a book called The Little Folks of Animal Land. In it, Frees dressed up kittens and puppies in a bunch of human scenarios and created comical scenes. Because people have generally always loved laughing at animals in people clothes — long before ICanHazCheeseburger figured it out. Click through for a bunch of cute photos of pups and kitties from ye olde times.
There’s no midweek malaise that can’t be cured by a cute animal video. Without further ado, I present to you The Incredible Leaping Lamb. OMG, I’m dying. Does it have springs on its feet? Is it part kangaroo? How does it catch so much air? A kernel of joy just bloomed in my heart and my life makes sense again. I didn’t know you could keep lambs as pets. Crap, I might need one now. But it has to be one that leaps. I long to engage in this type of lamb play. [Buzzfeed]
This is Cocoa, a three-year-old Alpine Pygmy goat who lives in Summit, New Jersey, but enjoys frequent trips into Manhattan (I guess that makes her a bridge and tunnel goat?). While in the city, she accompanies her owner into shops, takes long walks around Soho, rides the subway, and lounges in Central Park. Says her owner: “She doesn’t like goats, she doesn’t like farms, she likes the people and the city.” I’ve always wanted a pygmy goat, but now I want a chic, urban pygmy goat who will sip cosmos with me. Click here to see a photo slideshow of Cocoa’s latest adventures in the Big Apple. [Reuters]
When you’re a baby, everything seems exciting and new. Take this baby lemur, who just discovered that he could climb a rope. How awesome is that? Pretty great — and also a little bit scary, right? [HolyCuteness]
Some people give their pets baths, others comb their animals. But corgi dog Corbin Dallas Multipass gets vacuumed. He seems to really love it, too. I love Corgis because I think they are kind of nature’s comedy, with their short stump legs and huge ears, but maybe that’s just me. [Corbinism]
“My first love was the box. And I am still in love with it. I might have had some kind of a relationship with boxes in a previous life.”
– Maru, the world’s greatest cat, in an exclusive and all-too brief interview with Buzzfeed. In it, he talks about his admiration for Garfield, his biggest inspirations, and, of course, his love for boxes. [Buzzfeed]
