Finally, A Suit Of Armor Fit For A Guinea Pig

“Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable? Do they get picked on by other guinea pigs? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go with you to a Renaissance Faire but had nothing to wear? Fear not! A solution is here!”

This is the text of an eBay listing for the majestic suit of guinea pig armor and matching helmet shown above. Apparently the suit was handmade for the guinea pig in the photo, Lucky, who unfortunately passed away before he was able to use his armor for anything other than a couple photoshoots. His owner is now auctioning off Lucky’s outfit to the highest bidder, and donating all proceeds to Virginia’s Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue. The current winning bid? Over $8,000. Yes, seriously. Lucky’s legacy will live on for quite some time. [eBay via Digital Spy]

Squuuuueeeeee!

All aboard! Baby seals! Next stop: Cutest Thing Ever. A baby seal wandered on board J.R. Gilkinson’s boat while it was anchored in Newport Beach, California. The seal pulled its way onto the boat’s hull and wandered around for a bit before coming to nuzzle Gilkinson’s knee. It’s all pretty good, but things get really great around the 2:30 mark. [YouTube]

Real Men Love Cats

Hoo boy. The way to my heart is most definitely through an Australian-accented bearded hottie who reads and can wax political about gender and, oh yeah, LOVES CATS. Ben John Smith, the bearded hottie in question, and his pal Cam McCulloch are currently in the process of filming a documentary called “Cat Men.” The film seeks to explore, as Flavorwire puts it, the “cat-loving men [who] remain curiously underrepresented in both the media and in popular culture.” Here’s a clip of Smith (who has a girlfriend, boo) discussing two of his kitties, named William Burroughs and Sylvia Plath, singing to them (!), and showing off his plural cat tattoos. As a crazy cat lady in training, it is my official opinion that the only thing that could make “Cat Men” better would be for Karl and Choupette to get involved. [YouTube via Flavorwire]

7 Photos Of An Orphaned Baby Wallaby & Her Makeshift Sleep Sack

I was having kind of a rough day, but then I saw these photos of a orphaned baby wallaby and my internal desire to SQUEE overwhelmed my desire to cry for the third time today! Four-month-old Skye lost her mom and is currently being taken care of by Donna Liversedge, a zookeeper at the New Forest Wildlife Park in the UK, who lets Skye sleep in a tote bag at the end of her bed. The totes is lined with a little bit of Skye’s mom’s fur and Donna is teaching her how to get in and out of it herself. The cuteness is beyond. Guys, I have a lot of empty tote bags that I didn’t know what to do with until now, but clearly I need a baby wallaby.

cat smuggling cell phones

Not so much a cat burglar as a cat smuggler, a kitty at a Russian prison facility was detained after guards found cell phones and chargers taped to the animal’s belly. Cell phones are strictly verboten in Russian prisons, and authorities believe that the cat was being used by prisoners to ferry items in and out of their cell blocks.

The technologically advanced cat was discovered near the fence at Penal Colony No. 1 near the city of Syktyvkar, which is around 600 miles north of Moscow. The cat was detained and stripped of its expensive contraband.

Training cats to do pretty much anything is near impossible. The CIA once tried — and failed — to turn cats into spies (they spent $20 million on the attempt). So it would be pretty impressive if these inmates had been able to successfully get a cat to deliver electronics to them inside prison walls. Ah well, there’s always carrier pigeons.
