A Man Bought A Dog This Weekend That Cost More Than Your House

tibetan mastiff

A Chinese businessman (not the man pictured above, however) broke records this weekend when he bought a puppy for almost $2 million — more than anyone has ever paid for a pet dog. What the hell is this costly canine? A 200-pound Tibetan Mastiff, who will grow up to look something like a giant fluffy teddy bear. Hey, if the price is right. Keep reading »

This 22-Pound Cat Trapped His Family In A Room And Forced Them To Call 911

Look closely. That innocuous image of feline innocence is actually a scary cat-beast ready to attack at any moment. Or something like that. On Sunday night, Lux the cat had his owners trapped in a room in their own home, fearing for their safety. He attacked and scratched the seven-month-old son of his owners, Lee Palmer and Teresa Barker, after the baby pulled Lux’s tail. In reaction, Palmer kicked Lux.

The 22-pound Himalayan went haywire. Lux wouldn’t relent until the whole family, including their pet dog, was barricaded in a bedroom, calling 911, and prompting local news headlines like “family rescued from pet cat.” Keep reading »

This Guy Spent Thousands Turning His House Into A Playground For His Cats, And You Can Too

Do you love your cats? Do you also have $35,000 to spare? A California man did, and he used it to turn his home into a live-in playground for his 18 cats. The house includes wall ledges, ramps, and custom tunnels all specially designed for his kitties. The home also has a spiral feline “staircase” and a custom ventilation system to keep the air clean. He wanted his cats to experience daily adventures without having to go outdoors, and paired with the cheerful colors used to decorate the house, the place is basically a kitten’s version of Disneyworld. Check out the full gallery here, and don’t worry – just giving your cat the occasional treat and pat on the head is also considered good cat parenting. Not all of us have pet palaces to build at our disposal! [GizmodoTrillium] [Photo: Trillium Enterprises]

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 »
