Hey, a baby is still a baby — even if that baby happens to weigh a couple hundred pounds. This is Pakak, one of two orphaned baby walruses who are being cared for by the staff at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska. Palak, and his brother Mitik were orphaned after becoming separated from their herd, and are apparently really, really into cuddling. Local reporter Kate O’Malley visited the siblings and found them super endearing. “They lumbered right over to me and photographer Marc Lester and smacked us with their velvety bowling ball heads. Then they started barking,” she wrote. “They sounded like a couple of smokers hacking into a megaphone.” Smokers hacking into a megaphone! Adorable!
Sadly, the two will be separated — off to the Indianapolis Zoo and the New York Aquarium, respectively. But for now, they can cuddle with the staff — and each other. Check out one more amazing pic after the jump. Keep reading »

Unimpressed cat captured our hearts yesterday, and so we figured we’d take a look at all the things that fall under his scornful eyes. Click through the gallery above to see what unimpressed cat is thoroughly unimpressed with!
Depending on your mood and romantic history, you’ll either find the love story of “Breaking Bad” actor Aaron Paul and his fiancee Lauren Parsekian to be hopelessly adorable or nauseatingly saccharine. During Paul’s Emmy acceptance speech Sunday night, he thanked his “beautiful, inspiring fiancée … Thank you so much for looking at me the way that you do, you truly saved me.” We love Aaron Paul, for obvious reasons, and Parsekian, who is ridiculously gorgeous, seems pretty cool, too — she’s the cofounder of the Kind Campaign, which works with abused and bullied young girls. There’s, like, a lot of love between these two, and they’ve documented it in interviews, photos and endless Twitter posts about one another. We’ve captured the most, um, intense Twitter exchanges between these two lovebirds for your enjoyment. You tell us — is it too cute or too much?
Spotted at New York Fashion Week: the inimitable Aila Wang, three-year-old niece of designer Alexander Wang and total future It girl. She’s only three, but Aila has her uncle’s trademark urban-chic on lock, not to mention a street style savvy that most aspiring fashionistas can only dream of. Nike kicks, black snakeskin, and a mini Chanel… um, Suri who? [World of Wonder]

Earlier this week, important news broke: a mutt named Lejon adopted white lion cub JoJo after JoJo’s mom became sick and was unable to take care of her. They’re the best of friends, and oh my God, my mind is exploding from the combined cuteness. Make. It. Stop.
But Lejon is hardly the only animal to take up caring for another species in need. After the jump, we’ve got several more surprising (and super cute) inter-species adoptions.
