The Daily Squee: Baby White Tigers At An Austrian Zoo

Babies!

There’s nothing more exciting than a newborn white tiger … except five newborn white tigers. The White Zoo in Kernoff, Austria was an embarrassment of riches on Monday when the felines, who were born on April 25, met the public. The zoo’s owner said they were pleased when four healthy Bengel cubs were born and then one more appeared a short while later. They’ve been not-at-all confusingly named Lulu, Lila, Lali, Lela and the only boy is named Obama. Yup, an adorable baby tiger named Obama. [YouTube; The Weather Channel]

The Daily Squee: Just Some Baby Black Bears Sparring Adorably
"Come at me, bro!"

Coming back to work after a three-day weekend is such a buzzkill. Let’s cheer things up around here with this video of two baby black bears roughhousing in some lucky bastard’s backyard. I know these adorable little guys are going to grow up to be beasts that can kill you with one sweep of a mighty bear paw, but goddamn, they’re adorable and cuddly-looking at this age. [HyperVocal]

10 reasons I'm totally obsessed with goats. Read More »

Interspecies love stories always make me squee, but the friendship between Mr. G, a goat, and Jellybean, a burro, made me SQUOB. (Squobbing, a word I just made up, is when you are squeeing and sobbing at the same time because something is equal parts adorable and heartwrenching.) Mr. G and Jellybean were both rescued from a hoarder’s home earlier this year and were taken to live in separate animal sanctuaries, despite having spent their whole lives in each other’s company. Mr. G was so depressed about being away from his ride-or-die bestie that he was refusing to leave his stall or eat, spending his time writing bad poetry and listening to Daughtry. (I’m kidding about those last two, although Daughtry does provide the background music to this video.) It was clear these two soulmates needed to be together, so Jellybean was brought to live with Mr. G at Animal Place in Grass Valley, California. The minute Mr. G heard Jellybean arrive, he started to perk up and within minutes of being reunited, Mr. G was back to his usual goat self. SQUOB!!! [Huffington Post]

BRB, Crying

When a horrific tornado damaged the community of Cedarville, Ohio, local news station WHIO went to the scene to cover the damage. Weatherman Rich Wirdzek was filming a segment about the devastation when he heard loud mews for help coming from a kitten buried in the rubble. Wirdzek warmed up the kitten in the station’s news van and eventually set out to locate his owners. WHIO later found out that the kitty had been one of several born in a barn belonging to the Dobbins family, who live in the area. The barn has since been destroyed, but this little nugget miraculously made it through the storm. Two of his siblings were also found alive. His family previously thought he didn’t make it, and I can’t imagine how overjoyed they must have been when they heard he was okay. He and his siblings have been named Twister, Storm and Lucky after the ordeal. It’s so comforting to see something sweet come out of such an awful experience. Rich Wirdzek and his team are total heroes! [Jezebel]

Be My Pet: Itty Bitty Baby Platypuses!

Full-grown platypuses* are sort of unsettling to look at. I mean, the British settlers didn’t call them “water moles” for nothing (shudder). But look at these itty bitty baby platypuses! Have you ever see anything cuter and more snuggly looking in your life? They’re like living, breathing beanie babies! Or mini hippos! I want 10 of them, please. And little top hats to put on them. [I Fucking Love Science]

*My 7th grade biology teacher used to get SO mad if any of us uttered the word, “platypuses.” She would actually whack our desk with a ruler and say, “The plural of platypus is platypi. PLATYPIIIIIII!!!” But I just found out that the plural of platypus is in fact “platypuses,” and now I feel both vindicated and confused.

It’s Time To Cry: Rescued Beagles Have The Freedom To Run For The First Time

It's Time To Cry: Rescued Beagles Have The Freedom To Run For The First Time
Run, Beagles, Runnnnnn!!!!

I am so glad I worked from home today and am not wearing my meticulously applied black liquid eyeliner, because it would be completely ruined and streaming halfway down my face after watching this video. The Beagle Freedom Project is dedicated to rescuing the adorable breed from a life spent in cages as test subjects for laboratory research. Beagles are the most popular breed for such experiments because of their sweet, docile nature, and are often bred and sold by commercial breeders to scientific research labs for such purposes. The Beagle Freedom Project rescues those sweet pups and finds them loving forever homes. In the video above, watch as nine recently rescued beagles are brought outside and experience the freedom to run and frolic for the very first time. I’m simultaneously shedding tears of sadness and joy. RUN, SWEET BEAGLE BABIES, RUNNNN!!!!! And if you’re interested in more information on the Beagle Freedom Project, including adopting a beagle into your own family, click here. [via The Daily Dot]

Watch These Cats Go Totally “Mean Girls” On Each Other

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

In every toxic friendship, one person is the Regina George while the other is her fan/underling who will do anything for her approval. Apparently, cats are no exception. Watch these kitties act like best friends until one of them abruptly changes her mind. Despite their drama, they’re totally adorable. [Tastefully Offensive]

Watch These Smiley Dogs Jamming To Pharrell’s “Happy”

Dream Life Status

I have seen a lot of animal videos in my time on this earth, but none of them have made me smile bigger than these dogs frolicking around in time with Pharrell Williams’ “Happy.” Didga the skateboarding cat even makes an appearance amongst all the canines. Pharrell should have put more overjoyed puppies in his original music video, because what’s more cheerful than that? And where do I show up to play on the beach with dogs all day? Sign me up!
