Have you ever seen an echidna puggle? Until earlier today, we didn’t even know something called an echidna puggle even existed. But then one of these little guys was orphaned and found on a dirt track near Australia’s Central Coast. Look at this cutie! Look at his little belly! He’s currently being hand-reared at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo, so he should be fine. But that belly! How precious!
Anyways! Whether you’re stuck in the path of Hurricane Sandy, or just stuck behind your desk today, it’s imperative you take a minute or two for a little belly break. We’ve got cats, dogs, puppies, lions and tigers and bears — oh my. Big bellies and little bellies — bellies that’ll make you go squee and wish you could rub them and squeeze them yourself. Click through to enjoy!
Got a case of the homebound-by-the-hurricane Mondays? Not anymore, you don’t! This adorable baby cheetah and his friends are here to cute up the joint as they come face-to-face with their jack-o-lantern nemesis.
The Internet was basically invented for cat videos. Through the years, we’ve probably wasted at least half our lives to watching cat videos and ogling pictures of cute kittens, so we’re pretty much experts when it comes to the best cats online. That’s why we’ve decided to assemble this handy list of the best cats on the Internet — EVER. These are the best of the best, and you should definitely check out these cat videos and websites. If you haven’t wasted enough time, what are you waiting for? Keep reading »
This is why I will always love Philadelphia: Because only in Philadelphia will a dude ride around on his bike with a kitten on his back. This is YouTube user RudiElias86, and in addition to being totally adorable, he’s also forged a special bond with his little kitten MJ, who goes everywhere with him. [Philebrity]
America, we have a fox obesity problem. And when you feed your pet foxes marshmallows, you’re not helping the cause. Okay, kidding, this fox was an orphan rescued as a baby, and he gets a marshmallow treat once a year on the anniversary of his adoption. Watch this little guy bury some of the marshmallows for later.

Did you miss the Halloween Dog Parade at NYC’s Tompkins Square Park this weekend? No worries, we’ve got plenty of pics of the dogs all dressed up in costume — Evita! Mr. T! Mutt Romney! A Thanksgiving turkey! — to bring you up to speed.
A few weeks ago, I asked readers to submit questions they had for me about what it’s like being a single dog owner. This is the first video in a series in which I, with Lucca by my side, answer some of those questions. (If I didn’t get to yours, don’t worry, I will!) To begin, I explain how I handle having sleepovers with dudes, how I manage to have a social life while still giving Lucca the attention and care she needs, what I would do if a guy said he wanted to have kids with me but was worried about having a dog around a baby, and who Lucca will go to in the (hopefully unlikely) event of my sudden passing. (Morbid, but important!) I hope you enjoy because Lucca and I lovvvvved making this video!
I didn’t realize until I saw this photo of Mitik how badly my life is in need of a walrus companion. Mitik is 15 months old, 234 pounds, and an orphan. He was found in the waters of Alaska in late-July and was nursed back to health at a facility there before being transferred this week to the Brooklyn Aquarium, where I will visit him on the regular once he’s out of quarantine. Mitik is, by all accounts, a total sweetheart. Keep reading »
Corgis are, to me, God’s comedy. I understand that they had some breeding reason to make a dog with short legs and a wide body, but come on, look at those guys! THEY ARE WALKING HILARITY! And what’s better than a regular ol’ corgi doing corgi things? A corgi in a costume. Which is why we’re presenting you with 10 corgis all decked out for Halloween. Get ready!
