Ready to feel like the worst cat mom ever? A new study shows that stroking your cats could be making them more stressed out. When researchers at the University of Lincoln set out to study the way cats handle living alongside humans in the same home, they tested stress hormone levels in cats before stroking them at various levels. When they measured those stress hormones again after petting them, they found that none of the cats liked being constantly touched, though the study noted that some were “prepared to tolerate it.”

I am now guiltily picturing my cat tensing up and steeling himself whenever he sees my hand heading toward his furry head. Keep reading »

Meet Snoopybabe, Your New Favorite Internet Cat

Snoopybabe is more famous in China than [Insert Something Famous In China] and he is just an adorable kitty cat. Snoopy has 275,000 followers on Weibo (China’s version of Twitter ) and 190,000 on Instagram. Is this remotely surprising? Look at him. His droopy eyes make him look sad and longing like North West grasping at hope for a normal childhood. Oh, it is devastatingly adorable.

Last night, I was feeling weirdly insecure. Not about the way I look. Not about my job performance. Not about a stupid boy. No, I was feeling insecure about my dog Lucca and whether or not she truly loves me. I like to think Lucca channels her thoughts through me for me to speak aloud and those thoughts are usually pretty supportive and worshipful. But what if I’m wrong?

New Friends

Pets are nothing if not persistent when there’s affection to be had. Nowhere is that better illustrated than this squee-dorable video of a little boy with Down Syndrome being won over with love by a pushy Labrador retriever. The boy, Hernan, lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and is shy about physical contact. At first Hernan isn’t so sure about this big galoot shoving his wet nose in his face. But the Lab is persistent — in that gentle, perfect way all Labs are — and finally Hernan gives him a big hug. Labs are the greatest, aren’t they? I dare you to watch this video — which is over a year old, but making the rounds on the “Today” show and Huffington Post just now — and not get the warm and fuzzies.  [Today]
