Now You Can Adopt Puppies Through A Catalog (Sort Of)

Not even Peggy Olsen could have come up with an advertising plan like this: how could anyone resist thinking about rescuing a homeless pet when their cute faces are planted right into a catalog? Green Wood Animal Shelter in London teamed up with British company Furniture Village put together an online brochure that includes the addition of special guests to their usual catalogue photos of household decor: dogs and cats who are looking for forever homes. The pets-to-be, who currently reside at the shelter, can be adopted with just a few clicks. I clicked on a few of the catalog stars to learn their stories, and it kind of melted my heart to see “Reserved” next to some of their names in bright letters. Lots of the animals featured in the brochure aren’t even listed on the shelter’s site anymore, which means they’ve been placed with loving humans! You can check out the brochure photos here and if you’re in Green Wood’s area, think about offering a home to sweet little fuzzballs like kitties Boudicca and Gunner, who still need families of their own!

This Bear Is Having The Best Weekend

This Bear Is Having The Best Weekend

I am so envious of this super chill black bear right now. Look at him, all laid back in a hammock, soaking in the warm pre-summer air, like a boss. Daytona Beach homeowner Vincent James spotted the bear kickin’ back in his yard for a solid 20 minutes before being spooked by something and leaving — only to return a little while later for more chill time. I realize bears are scary beasts, but I sure wouldn’t mind lying end to end with him if he’d make a little room… [Gawker]

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]

"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]
