Tiny Baby Mouse Noms On A Flower

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…

Be My Pet: Meet The World’s Shortest Cat

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, i…

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

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

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? […

Life Dream Status: Goat Cafes Are Becoming A Thing

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…

I Can’t Stop Watching This Baby Owl’s Dance 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 Offensive; Bird Rescue Charitable…

Behold, The Pugs Of Westeros!

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,…

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

As a dog owner -- though I really think of myself as a mother to a beautiful dog daughter -- this story just breaks my heart. Imagine going out of town and returning to discover that someone you trusted to take care of your beloved pet while you were gone had actually sold that beloved pet instead. That'…

One time, back in college, I was reading a very serious passage of a personal essay to a very serious writing workshop group, and a tiny fly flew up my nose mid-sentence.

Guys, this is Pig. Pig is a dog and she makes my heart do somersaults. She's from Alabama and is the belle of the ball, aka Birmingham's annual Do Dah Day pet parade. As you probably noticed, Pig is a little unusual looking for a dog and captures the attention of everyone who meets her.
