Macklemore Schools Us On Proper Cat-Holding Techniques
"This cat really hates me."

Cat-holding! You’re doing it wrong. Let Macklemore show you how to properly wrangle and pet a cat — especially one who displays a shocking level of indifference/hatred regarding your very existence. It can be done, and Macklemore can help you do it, but you’ve got to be careful. Other suggested future Macklemore how-to videos include “How To Be Macklemore’s Girlfriend” and “How to Get Macklemore To Make Out With You.” Just a suggestion.   [YouTube]

Today in sad animal news (which, in my opinion, is often the saddest kind of sad news): Gus, the beloved polar bear who called the Central Park Zoo his home since 1988, has passed away at age 27. Arguably one of the most iconic animals of all time (he was once served tilapia by Rachael Ray), Gus first dominated news headlines in 1994 when it was discovered that boredom and depression caused him to swim endless laps back and forth in his pool. He was euthanized while undergoing a medical procedure, during which veterinarians found an inoperable tumor in his thyroid.

Said Jim Breheny, the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Vice President of Zoos and Aquariums, “Gus was an icon at the Central Park Zoo and a great source of joy for our visitors and staff. He was an important ambassador for his species bringing attention to the problems these bears face in the wild due to a changing environment.” Keep reading »

Start Your Day Right With A Fox In A Box

Start your day right with a fox in a box
Cute, Cute, Cute!

Foxes are so cute! But they’re underrated in the animal kingdom. You forget how adorable their little half-dog meets sort-of-cat faces can be. Thankfully, we have this video of a baby fox in a box to help get us through this Tuesday. Please listen with the sound up so you can hear his cute little fox yelps. [Have You Seen This?]

I Want To Go To There: Assateague Island, Where Wild Ponies Sunbathe On The Beach

Well, I’ve just found a new place to add to my travel bucket list: Assateague Island, a gorgeous strip of land located off the coast of Maryland and Virginia. With beautiful white sand beaches, Assateague attracts a fair share of human tourists, but it’s also home to a large herd of wild ponies (I repeat: WILD PONIES), who spend their time prancing in the streets, taking leisurely swims in the ocean, and sunning themselves on the beach right alongside families building sandcastles and slathering on Coppertone. The photo above, for example, was taken on a crowded Saturday afternoon. I’m grabbing my swimsuit now. Who’s coming with me? [Neatorama]

What Do You Think Of The Prime Minister, Grumpy?

There’s civil unrest in Egypt. The government might be spying on us. Millions are out of work. But OMG THERE’S A KITTY ON A NEWS PROGRAM GIVING AN INTERVIEW. Gahhhhh. Grumpy Cat hit up the Australian “Today Show” for a hard-nosed interview that sent TV host Karl Stefanovic into a giggling, snorting, knee-slapping fit.

Glad to know it isn’t just American journalism that’s down the toilet. [Uproxx]
