Quotable: “Meatball” Is The Fairest Bulldog In All The Land

“For me, the bulldog is the ugliest thing I can put my hands on. He’s got to have bloodshot eyes. The right kind of bloodshot eyes, like on a Friday night after you’ve been out socializing. He’s got to have that drooling look on his face, and then a little slobber coming down. That i…

We’re all about adopting animals here at The Frisky, and many staffers have given homes to strays or shelter dogs and cats. So, we’re pretty pleased about the initiative the U.S. Postal Service is launching later this month.

Do Your Pets Have A Hard Time With Breakups?

A friend of mine broke up with her live-in boyfriend last week, and while she’s doing fine, her cat isn’t.

Ever since my friend’s boyfriend moved out of the apartment they shared, her cat has been acting up. The feline has been relieving himself on the ex’s side of the bed every change it…

This Isn’t Even His REALLY Pissed Face

Yesterday Wendy sent me a link to this awesome post on BuzzFeed with the most hilarious photos of half-shaved animals and suggested that I shave my dog Lucca. I would never do that to my own animal; however, I will laugh at it being done to others. This guy is my favorite, but check out…

OMG! What’s Got This Cat So Shocked?

With all the shenanigans going down this week, it’s hard to say what has this kitty all crazy-eyed. Could it be the Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush breakup? The first look at an inevitable Michelle McGee sex tape? Crocs for cats? We may never know.

Girl Talk: Getting A Dog Changed Our Relationship More Than Moving In Together

A year into our relationship, I knew Michael was about to pop the question. After all, we were crazy about each other, lived together, and made a great team despite our many differences. Now it was just time to make our union official.

“Babe,” he finally said one day. “Are you ready to get…

The Soho Grand Hotel Offers Guests Companionship

True, the hospitality industry is a competitive one, but what could upscale hotels possibly think of next to one-up each other’s luxury amenities? The Wynn in Vegas just opened up a “booty parlor,” the Miami Ritz-Carlton offers guests a “tanning butler,” and Chicago’s Sax Hotel will make you feel like a celeb, by customizing your…

A Litter Box For Cool Cats

Cats would be the perfect house pets if you could just train them to do their business like dogs. Or people.
Because if you’re a cat owner, you know that dealing with the litter box is everyone’s least favorite chore. Not to mention how those ugly things completely mess up your bathroom decor. For…

The Best Way To Humiliate Both Yourself And Your Pet

Anyone who happens to own a dog and live in a concrete jungle knows there are certain challenges the urban environment presents. Without a yard, it’s hard to simply let a dog be a dog, and especially for childless 20- and 30-somethings, the animal can often become a surrogate child. In this situation, as detailed…

The Catorialist: Kitties Got Mad Street Style

It was only a matter of time! As you may have guessed, The Catorialist is a street style blog … all about cats (and a parody of The Sartorialist, obviously). Pretty photos of kitties with Sartorialist-inspired captions like, “On the street … Full tortoise, Chinatown, LA,” “The model … Bowery, NYC” and “On the street…

I’ve got something way better for you — adopt a pet! According to celebrity dermatologist Jessica Wu (and numerous studies), people become more relaxed and their…

Girl Talk: Cleo, The Breakup Kitten

Jesse was too attention-starved. Brendan was too spacey. Darrick was too needy, not to mention a big-time conservative. But for the first few years of my relationship with Chuck, he didn’t seem to have a fatal flaw. Sure, he was allergic to cats, but that hardly seemed like a dealbreaker. It wasn’t until the three-and-a-half…

Fido’s Chance At Sartorial Superstardom

I want a dog. Badly. But unfortunately, living in Manhattan with roommates is not exactly conducive to housing puppies. The Limited is making it really hard for me to stray from adopting a little pet of my own, as they’ve launched a brand new line of sweaters for man (and woman’s) best friend. Along with…
