Our old friend Marcel the Shell with shoes on is back! And he’s got a bunch of new things to tell us, about how he travels (by bug), where he sleeps (in a slice of bread) and what he’d like his nickname to be (Ace, of course). Marcel happily illuminates life on the small side of things: “Guess why the bus isn’t running?” he queries. “Because the bus is a caterpillar and it threw up!” [YouTube]
Pop quiz: Ryan Gosling : Amelia :: _______ : me. If you answered Joseph Gordon-Levitt, you’d be correct. Inspired by Ryan Gosling Vs. Puppies, I’ve decided to pit My Celebrity Boyfriend That Just Doesn’t Know That We’re Perfect For Each Other (Yet!) up against a gaggle of squee-inducing kittens. Will JGL defeat the appealing meows of tiny furry kittens, or has JGL’s hotness finally met its match? Worlds be colliding! And while my allegiances are fairly well-spelled out, you may want to challenge my choices. Commence debate in the comments!
Great Dane Lily was rendered blind thanks to a rare condition in which her eyelashes grew into her eyeballs. But thankfully she’s got guide dog Maddison — another Great Dane — to lead her around. Maddison stays close to Lily when they walk around, helping to guide her by touching her with his body to let her know the way. Keep reading »
Thank God, because without them, your dog would look like such a nerd around all the other cool dogs at the dog party. If Aziz Ansari can rock them (as Tom Haverford on “Parks and Rec”), then surely you wouldn’t deprive your pup of these completely awesome Jeremy Scott for Adidas ObyO SS12 kicks. Would you?

As anybody who knows me can tell you, mini-horses — really all mini-animals — are in my wheelhouse. They’re what I’m into. They are my scene. So, if I see a video of a mini-horse that can slam dunk a basketball posted on CNN, you just know I’m going to click on it. And thankfully, this guy does not disappoint. [CNN]
According to the caption, this is a photo of a kitten frolicking with something called a tigrillo. What is a tigrillo? A tiger and a Brillo Pad? A tiger crossed with a BBQ grill? A tiger owned by Don Delillo? A tiger drunk on tempranillo? It’s anybody’s guess. What do you think?
With all this political and social upheaval, will no one think of the kitties? They need their kibble and belly rubs, too. [99Purrcent.Tumblr.com]
Fact: baby animals learning to walk look like drunks. Drunks or teenagers on acid. But cuter! Like this baby elephant taking his first baby elephant steps ever! (Extra points for small British child yelling out in the background “It’s a baaaaaaaby!”) [YouTube]
Yes, he will drink it up! You know, while he’s just chillin’, upside down. [World of Wonder]
It’s been apocalyptically raining and rather miserable in New York this week. So, I think we can all agree that what’s needed right now is an adorable orange kitten interlude. This particular kitten is named Garfield, and he’s hiding in plain sight from a large dog that’s chasing him around the yard. Feel free to refer to Garfield as much as is needed this weekend.
