This 22-Pound Cat Trapped His Family In A Room And Forced Them To Call 911

Look closely. That innocuous image of feline innocence is actually a scary cat-beast ready to attack at any moment. Or something like that. On Sunday night, Lux the cat had his owners trapped in a room in their own home, fearing for their safety. He attacked and scratched the seven-month-old son of his owners, Lee…

Be My Boyfriend: Jon Boyer, The Hunky Cop Who Rescues Cats

Dear Officer Boyer,

May I call you Jon, I mean, unless we’re role-playing or something? Awesome. Jon, where have you been all my life? Or, rather, where have I been that I’m just learning about you now? I’m just one of many women who have been wooed by your reputation for rescuing and adopting the…

Photographer’s “Why We Rescue” Project Champions Pet Adoption With Moving Photographs And Stories

Adopting my dog Lucca from a shelter nearly eight years ago is, hands down, the best and most gratifying decision I’ve ever made. While I would never suggest that the love I feel for Lucca is greater because of it, I do think the experience of rescuing a dog, rather than buying from a breeder…

The Daily Squee: We Need To Talk About This Baby Anteater

I will confess that I’m not sure how I feel about anteaters. They don’t have the same neotenous appearance or demeanor that, say, kittens and baby pandas doo. Yet there’s something adorable that can’t be denied about their itty-bitty ears and their big, long snout. This critter here is MJ, a southern tamandu  bor…

Celebrity Selfies Are So Much Better With Puppies In Them

Frivolous celeb selfies might actually do some good in the world, if Dallas Pets Alive (DPA) has anything to say about it. The nonprofit aims to make no-kill shelters the norm in Dallas, TX, and to find homes for rescue dogs. Their oh-so-brilliant marketing geniuses have gotten into the habit of #muttbombing, or reposting celebs&#8217…

12 Signs You’re An Introvert (Presented By Adorable Animals)

Being an introvert can be hard. I sometimes don’t feel understood by other, more outgoing people, or by society as a whole. Even though I’ve learned to make the most of my introverted nature, I still feel like a big ol’ reclusive weirdo sometimes. But this video changed all that. Introversion has never been so…

Dream Or Nightmare: Rabbits Are Adorable, But What About An Army Of Them Chasing After You?

This video is proof that you can indeed have too much of a good thing. One, two, even five fluffy rabbits hopping after you are adorable! But an entire swarm of them? NOPE. Nope nope nope. Am I alone is being oddly frightened by this scene? [Gawker]…

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…

4 Goats + 1 Bendy Piece Of Sheet Metal = Endless Entertainment

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…

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…

The Daily Squee: Adorable Little Penguin Chases Grown Man Adorably

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…

These Pictures Of Kids Reading To Rescue Cats Will Melt Your Heart

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…

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 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! 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…

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

As an obsessive dog owner, it can be easy for me to forget that there are other creatures people keep as pets and love as much as I love Lucca. I was reminded of this yesterday, when I posted a link to the Puppy Bowl X gallery to FB and a friend, who happens to be a…
