This Guy Spent Thousands Turning His House Into A Playground For His Cats, And You Can Too

Do you love your cats? Do you also have $35,000 to spare? A California man did, and he used it to turn his home into a live-in playground for his 18 cats. The house includes wall ledges, ramps, and custom tunnels all specially designed for his kitties. The home also has a spiral feline “staircase” and a custom ventilation system to keep the air clean. He wanted his cats to experience daily adventures without having to go outdoors, and paired with the cheerful colors used to decorate the house, the place is basically a kitten’s version of Disneyworld. Check out the full gallery here, and don’t worry – just giving your cat the occasional treat and pat on the head is also considered good cat parenting. Not all of us have pet palaces to build at our disposal! [GizmodoTrillium] [Photo: Trillium Enterprises]

If you saw a bendy piece of sheet metal stuck in the ground, you’d probably think, “Ugh, what an eyesore.” Goats, as evidenced by this adorable video, think, “OMG! A NEW TOY!” and proceed to turn it into a makeshift metal trampoline. Also, I’d like to take a moment to thank the 10 different people who sent me a link to this video. You guys get me. [YouTube]

Swoon: US Olympic Skier Gus Kenworthy Is Rescuing Stray Dogs In Sochi

Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new favorite Olympic athlete: Gus Kenworthy. Not only is the 22-year-old skier super talented on the slopes (and in possession of a pair of adorable pink cheeks that I kind of want to pinch — does that make me old?), he’s also a lifelong animal lover who has been using his downtime in Sochi to rescue stray puppies. Total dreamboat status, right? Kenworthy lost his beloved dog Mack just last year, so when a friend in Sochi texted him about a litter of strays living underneath a media tent, Kenworthy rushed over to see how he could help. After locating the puppies and tweeting some seriously cute photos, Kenworthy set to work figuring out how to bring the homeless pups back to the states with him. Keep reading »

The Daily Squee: Adorable Little Penguin Chases Grown Man Adorably

You Can Run, But You Can't Hide

Being chased around the zoo by a penguin is either someone’s life dream or someone’s nightmare. (For me it’s a dream, obviously.) Fortunately this African penguin chasing his zookeeper around the Masue Vogel Aviary Park in Japan looks utterly harmless. Who knew penguins could run (er, waddle) so fast? I guess that comes in handy when a seal is trying to eat them. Run, little buddy, run! [Neatorama]

It’s too cute, I can’t handle it: the Animal Rescue League of Berks County, Pennsylvania, invites children in from first through eighth grade to visit the shelter and read to the rescue cats who live there. The kids get to practice their reading skills, while the cats feel a sense of comfort from the rhythmic sound of a human voice. The program was started by an employee of the rescue league whose 10-year-old son was struggling to read. Once she saw easily he read surrounded by kitties in the shelter adoption room, she implemented the program with other classes. These days, everyone from homeschooled kids to parents of autistic children to Girl Scout troops participate. Everybody wins, and as the series on snapshots (like the one above) on Love Meow shows, nothing makes for a cuter set of pictures. How many little ones do you think go home begging Mom to adopt a stray? [22 WordsLove Meow]

WTF: Copenhagen Zoo Kills Giraffe, Feeds Him To The Lions

One of the hazards of being an animal lover is how frequently I forget the ways of the Animal Kingdom: many animals eat other animals. Yes, even the cute ones. Such is the fate of Marius, a two-year-old giraffe at the Copenhagen Zoo in Denmark. Deemed a “surplus” giraffe by zookeepers, on Sunday, young Marius was shot with a pistol and then fed to the zoo’s carnivores. Keep reading »

The Daily Squee: Baby Wombats Get Belly Rubs

Scratch, Scratch, Scratch, Scratch

As soon as I started dating an Australian, I began fantasizing about all the adorable animals Down Under who would someday become my friends. Koalas! Roos! Wombats! Sadly, this American was quickly informed that all of those wild animals are indeed wild animals and seldom seen, let alone snuggled. (Kangaroos, I am told, are very common, but are huge and dangerous to humans.) So it gives me hope whenever I watch a video such as this: baby wombats enjoying belly rubs! Also, scurrying around like toddlers on Red Bull! (These little guys live in some kind of a zoo or shelter, which I am obviously Googling immediately.) Thank you, Internet, for further proof that every species loves a good belly scratch. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

The Daily Squee: Watch This Puppy Try To Rescue His Own Reflection

Woof!

This pup has looked in the mirror for the first time and he is so confused about what he sees! It’s almost as if he’s worried about setting his “twin” free! I feel kind of bad for laughing at him, but there’s really nothing cuter than a golden retriever puppy.  [Except a Lucca puppy. -- Lucca] [Jezebel]

Meet Depot, the kindly green-eyed kitty who was almost evicted from her home of 13 years last week. See, Depot is a lovable stray who lives inside a Home Depot store in Bluffton, South Carolina. She’s something of a local celebrity and wanders around the store making friends with customers, many of whom bring her treats when they come to shop.

The store’s management had no problem with Depot either, until she recently began unwittingly setting off security alarms in the middle of the night. The company said it was time for Depot to hit the road. Keep reading »
