Do you have a lot of feelings?! Us, too! But for the next one minute and 53 seconds, the only feeling you need to have is “AWWWWWWW.” Because that’s the only way to feel about Loki the kitten and his new, maybe-friend Harley the hedgehog … who mostly scares him. [YouTube]
I have a friend whose boobs are so large that she doesn’t need a wallet because she can carry her money wedged between her tits. If I wanted to carry anything between my breasts, it would have to be like an empty Starbucks cup covered in two-sided tape. But I think all of us, large-breasted and not-so-large breasted, can agree that carrying a living creature with claws inside your bra is nothing short of batcrackers. Also, adorable.
This video of a bunch of ragdoll kittens (18 of them!) playing with a bunch of ducklings is almost too much. It’s kind of the cutest mosh pit ever. [Neatorama]
This is why I will always love Philadelphia: Because only in Philadelphia will a dude ride around on his bike with a kitten on his back. This is YouTube user RudiElias86, and in addition to being totally adorable, he’s also forged a special bond with his little kitten MJ, who goes everywhere with him. [Philebrity]
Karl Lagerfeld vs. Martha Stewart: who is the stranger pet owner? It’s a tough call. On one hand, we have Karl, whose Siamese cat (Choupette!) inspired a Chanel couture collection and has two personal maids who keep a diary on her behalf. On the other, we have Martha, who named her kittens Emperor Ch’in (after the Chinese ruler) and Kublai Khan (after the heir to the Mongolian empire), and also owns a Chow Chow named Ghenghis Khan. Oh, wait! Martha definitely wins, and here’s why:
“As with all my new pets, I gently bit each kitten on the face. This is how I let my animals know that I am now their mother.”
There you go. [The Martha Blog via Dlisted]
Choupette Lagerfeld is my literal spirit animal in that she is, in fact, an animal, and also happens to really speak to my spirit, so there you have it. Just when I thought the gloriousness quotient of Karl’s legendary Siamese had finally been capped due to overload, what with recent reports of a photoshoot and eponymous purse, I could not have been more wrong. It turns out that the influence of le chaton on the Kaiser’s design sense does not only not draw the line at soft, fluffy bags, but an entire collection Karl kreated for Chanel was inspired by Choupette’s eyes. And who spilled the beans on the true blue roots of the Spring/Summer 2012 couture collection but Karl’s friend and neighbor Diane Kruger? One more for my extensive list of reasons why I would beyond happily trade lives with the German actress (we’ll call it #2, before Joshua Jackson and after the fact that she is one of the most beautiful people alive): she… has touched… Choupette. Even though she was probably made to wear white silk gloves whilst doing so. [Fashionista]
