Meet Depot, the kindly green-eyed kitty who was almost evicted from her home of 13 years last week. See, Depot is a lovable stray who lives inside a Home Depot store in Bluffton, South Carolina. She’s something of a local celebrity and wanders around the store making friends with customers, many of whom bring her treats when they come to shop.

The store’s management had no problem with Depot either, until she recently began unwittingly setting off security alarms in the middle of the night. The company said it was time for Depot to hit the road. Keep reading »

Dealbreaker: He Kicked My Dog

I walked into a posh, new restaurant in Alphabet City and asked a guy in a black suit (amidst other guys in ratty chinos and un-tucked oxford shirts) about my reservation. Like a gentleman, he laughed and explained in a sexy Aussie accent that he wore a suit because he was a sharp dresser, not because he was a host at this restaurant. Blushing cheeks, a good laugh and I had Jack’s phone number.

Jack the Australian had cool, blue eyes and black hair, and if I need to say more than that, I can. He was an air traffic controller. An extra cool, rom-com worthy job. He quickly racked up bonus points; funny in a dorky way, up for anything, including flea markets and whiffle ball, and actually used dish soap. He even had a continual Scrabble game going with his elderly neighbor. Keep reading »

Warning: Justin Bieber Bought A Bulldog Puppy

Normally when a celebrity adopts an animal (or, um, child) we are happy knowing they have now entered Fat City. Except, that is, when the adoptive parent is Justin Bieber. We have only just gotten over his irresponsible and inhumane treatment of his pet monkey and his pet hamster, both of which he abandoned.

Well, now he’s gone and bought a bulldog puppy (above). Keep reading »

It’s Time To Cry: Blind Man Falls On NYC Subway Tracks, His Service Dog Jumps Down After Him

There is one nightmare that every New Yorker is terrified of experiencing: falling (or getting pushed) onto the subway tracks. For Cecil Williams, 61, that nightmare became a reality on Tuesday when he fainted while standing on the 125th street platform and fell down onto the tracks.

But, see, Cecil Williams is blind. So right after he fell, his service dog, Orlando, jumped right down on the tracks with him. A bystander told The New York Post, ”[Orlando] was kissing him, trying to get him to move.” Keep reading »

Keeping Cats As Pets Began 5,000 Years Ago

lil bub

It might be hard to believe, but cats weren’t always domesticated pets. Once upon a time, someone actually invited these tyrants into the house and the rest, as they say, is history.

According to recent findings, the first wild cat (or what we now call a stray) began hanging out with humans maybe over 5,000 years ago. While excavating a Stone Age village in China, researchers have found the earliest evidence of cats and humans — their first step in becoming the pets (and Internet stars) we love today.

“You Shall Not Pass, Dog” Captures The Best Of Cat Vs. Dog Dynamics

You Shall Not Pass, Dog!

Pets! They’re weird. Weirdest of all, perhaps, is the unspoken dynamic between cats and dogs. Believed to despise one another, so much so that there is an animated movie about it (and a sequel!), it’s really much less of an outright hatred and more just an implied narrative of canine fear. Most cats don’t even do anything; dogs are just inherently terrified of them. Sittin’ at the top of the stairs, at the end of the hallway, on the kitchen counter … wherever cats may be, dogs refuse to pass them. The fear seems unfounded until the dogs are actually coaxed into moving — then you see that a cat’s strongest instinct, its most base pleasure of all, is to snag a dog’s tail in passing. Woof! I submit as proof this excellent compilation, entitled “You Shall Not Pass, Dog.” It is just over 3 glorious minutes of silly dogs with the fear of God in ‘em as they attempt, and fail, to venture past sitting cats.
