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 wa…

The Daily Squee: Baby Wombats Get Belly Rubs

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!

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

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. --

Alright, Alright, Cat Ladies (And Gents): Here Are The Stars Of The Kitten Half-Time Show At Puppy Bowl X

The Daily Squee: A Skateboarding Cat Is Just As Amazing As She Sounds

Meet Didga the cat, skateboarder extraordinaire. Watch Didga around her Australian hometown on her board, jumping over dogs and looking generally unfazed at just how absurd it is that she's a cat on a skateboard. How her owner managed to train her to do this is beyond me, but I am all kinds of impressed.

The Daily Squee: Watch This Old Footage Of Lil Bub When She Was Even Lil-er

We live in an era when "found footage" of Internet cat Lil Bub is treated as if someone found an old video of Jennifer Lawrence singing in her high school's production of "The Sound Of Music." It's Lil Bub! At eight weeks old! Like all kittens, she is painfully adorable, but most noteworthy to me…

The Daily Squee: Baby Skunk In A Onesie Cuddling A Stuffed Sloth

There are so many things about this picture that are making my head spin, but it involves a onesie and it's somehow appealing to my sense of cuteness, so I'm going with it…even though I have been known to have nightmares about skunks. Anyhow, Stunky the the skunk (I should specify that she's someone's PET)…

The Daily Squee: A 9-Week-Old Ocelot At Play

When I was about 10, I decided my favorite animal was the ocelot. I liked the exotic sound of the name, the way it made me seem infinitely more cultured and knowledgeable than my simpleton friends who were still citing "cat" as their favorite animal. Plus, how could you not love a jungle cat that'…

Man Recreates Romantic Movie Scenes With A Dog, And It’s Not Quite As Creepy As It Sounds

It all started as a joke, as so many brilliant performance art projects do.

Dog Vogue Is The Fashion Magazine I’ve Been Waiting For

Vogue never fails to make me feel fat, poor, wrinkled, and frumpy. Dog Vogue, on the other hand, makes me feel like doing a happy dance. Dog Vogue was created by photographer Sophie Gamand, who had "acclaimed pet couturier" (yes, that's a thing) Anthony Rubio dress a group of chihuahua models in couture outfits and…
