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]

So Cute!

This is Gladys the bull terrier. She’s got a couple of bottles of milk strapped to her back so she can help feed a bunch of goats in her care.  ”The idea evolved from the fact that Gladys was completely obsessed with the baby goats, she licked them from the moment they were born, and accompanied us to bottle feed them three times a day – never missing a session,” explains the video’s maker. “She cleaned all the little dribbles of milk as they drank and just adored them, lying super still on the ground while they pounced on her when they were small and running with them as they got bigger and bouncier. We joked that she would love to feed them herself, if only there was a way for her to hold the bottles.”

So Gladys was rigged up with a bottle harness. It didn’t work, but it did result in this funny video. “She was less than a year old and the words stand/stay were not in her vocabulary,” her owner went on. “She just stood on the hay & wore the pants while we taped & arranged goats.” Goat arranger: I wonder if that’s a job I can audition for.

dog purse

I can’t believe we need to go over this again, but animals are living, breathing beings. They are not inanimate objects into which you can store your lipgloss, wallet and cell phone, so why, why, why, would you carry a dog around like that. This woman was snapped with Dog-as-Purse in tow on the streets of New York this past Thursday. I’m not saying the dog purse contraption hurts the dog or anything — it actually looks like it might be designed for exactly that. But it hurts my soul. And no doubt, this dog finds it extremely embarrassing to be toted around like that. Just look at the contempt its dog’s face! [The Gloss]

Talk about cowardly. The Luohe zoo in the Chinese province of Henan is in trouble after it reportedly tried to pass off a Tibetan mastiff dog as a lion. The dog, pictured, was placed in a cage labeled “African lion,” but the zoo’s visitors figured out something was amiss when they heard the animal, which resembles an oversized Chow, bark.

And that wasn’t the only animal ruse happening at the Luohe zoo. Keep reading »

I Don’t Like The Looks Of This “Cute” New Olinguito Species

olinguito

I’m all for cute animals. But something about this new species, dubbed the Olinguito, and discovered in Ecuador and Colombia, is suspect. Maybe it’s his beady little eyes, or his old lady hands, but the Olinguito looks like he’s up to no good.

Of course, it can’t be easy to be an Olinguito. You’re one of the first new mammalian carnivore species discovered in the Americas in 35 years. That’s a lot of pressure to live up to! Researchers say that the Olinguito is the smallest member of the raccoon family. It had previously been mistaken for its close cousin, the Olingo, but is actually somewhat smaller, weighing around two pounds, on average.

Whatever, we know it must be annoying being constantly mistaken for your cousin. But could you tone down the intensity a little bit, dude? Your eyes are freaking me out. [CNN]

hermitage museum cats

Russia’s Hermitage Museum holds more than three million works of art, and is the largest museum in the world. It’s also, likely the only museum with its own staff of stray cat security guards. The 65 badass, mice-killing cats to roam its grounds at night, killing vermin and protecting the museum’s precious works from harm. The felines have been there almost as long as the museum itself, and are taken care of by donations from museum workers and have a dedicated caregiver.

Recently, a series of portraits commemorating the cats was commissioned and produced by Uzbek artist Eldar Zakirov. The series, “Cats of Hermitage,” places the fancy felines in traditional Russian garb. The portraits will be featured in an upcoming issue of Hermitage Magazine. Check out a few others after the jump. [ArtInfo] Keep reading »
