Please Enjoy This Clean Freak Little Owl Babe

owl and mop
Woot woot! Baby owl!

This little Siberian eagle owl — which really, owls are highly underrated in the cuteness department don’t you think? — lives at the Screech Owl Sanctuary in Newquay, Cornwall, England. Here, he’s adorably communing with the mop used to clean up his little owl living space. according to one of the sanctuary’s workers, who is named — I shit you not — Caroline Screech. “As soon as our workers begin to mop the floor, he is out of his cage helping,” she says. “He absolutely adores that mop. He’s got lots of cuddly toys, but that is his preferred plaything.” Love takes a lot of forms, and who are we to judge if this baby owl has fallen for a mop? Though, from the looks of it, the owl seems a tad disappointed in the mop. Like maybe they got in a fight? Give it some time, owl, give it some time. [This Is Cornwall]

You're Doing It Wrong

Manatees are my favorite animal. They are large and kind-looking, not aggressive and we share common interests — namely swimming in warm water very slowly and seaweed salad. A manatee has never pushed you out of the way to get on the train, or asked you to “keep it down,” or taken your seat on the bus. They are gentle souls. That’s why this footage of a woman riding a manatee in Florida is so awful. The most recent incident in a spate of human-on-manatee assault, the unnamed woman and her friends harassed this gentle herd until they finally swam away. A gentle reminder as we lead into this Memorial Day weekend — admire wild animals from afar. [WFLA]

Cross Species Love: Cat & Duckling Edition

Cat Breastfeeding Ducklings
Awwww...

Help settle a debate in The Frisky offices. Both Sophie and I think this video of a mama cat suckling her baby kittens and a gaggle of ducklings is so frickin’ cute. But Megan is seriously perturbed by the situation. It’s not natural, she says. Well, obviously! It’s sweet to see how protective the mama cat is of all of her babies, be they furry or feathered.

Valiant Tiger Undergoes Surgery To Remove Massive Hairball

Cleaning up your cat’s daily hairball attack aftermath got you down? Be grateful you’re not the vet who had to remove a terrifying 4 lb. hair ball from this handsome tiger’s stomach. After his handlers noticed that he wasn’t eating, they performed surgery to remove the basketball-shaped object, and the little dude is doing just fine now. You have to see this to believe it. Check out a pic of the hairball after the jump … if you dare. (Metro UK) Keep reading »

Lollipop Crimes
How dare that monkey!

I hate it when I’m sitting on the grass, trying to enjoy a lollipop and a monkey comes along and steals it. Even worse is when the monkey steals my lollipop and then hits me in the face with it. That’s so fucked up! Well, at least this puppy is getting a lesson in sharing at a young age. But regardless, that monkey is a complete asshole. It must be stopped. [Dlisted]

A young lady named Bridget Evans graduated from the graduate program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign this week — and right by her side, wearing a matching blue cap and gown, was her service dog named Hero. “We can read each other’s minds,” Evans told “The Today Show.” “We’re so attuned to each other. He’s my best friend, roommate, classmate, and like my sibling. I’m so grateful that I got to celebrate my day with Hero by my side and my family in the audience.” Evans’ six-year-old chocolate Lab accompanies his mistress everywhere to help her cope with spina bifida, a spine-related birth defect which has required 37 surgeries. He’s pulled her wheelchair up ramps, picked up dropped pens and turned off lights. The 24-year-old said that since Hero attended every single one of her classes, “He deserved a cap and gown as much as I did.” Damn straight! Congratulations to Bridget Evans and her Hero! [NBC News Tumblr] [Photo via Bridget Evans]
