Let’s reflect on Yoda, the dog who reminded us that true beauty is on the inside. Or even if it’s not, you can still be a title holder. More
Today, in extreme douchebaggery! A Russian tattoo artist has committed the triple crime of 1.) tattooing a cat, which is incapable of consent, 2.) choosing the lamest design possible, and 3.) misspelling the common Latin phrase Carpe Diem. Frownie points all around. More
Yesterday, a tribble-esque creature named Malachy won “Best In Show” at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the biggest competition of its kind. The only way this could get any better for the pint-sized Pekingese would be if he had any concept of what a “competition” is. Seriously, I love the way people talk about him as if he’s some kind of human celebrity with agency and not a trained animal who has figured out that certain kinds of movements will earn him treats. Here are the five most ridiculous things people have said about him. More
A new e-book published by addiction recovery site The Fix contains many never-before-seen stories about Courtney Love‘s life and struggles with addiction, many of them told directly to the author by Courtney herself. The author also obtained court documents from Frances Bean Cobain‘s restraining order proceedings, and they don’t paint a pretty picture of Courtney as a parent. More
Can anyone explain the concept of Halloween costumes for pets to me? Because I have tried– believe you me, I have tried– but I just. don’t. get them. Sure, humans may think they look cute, but somehow, I just can’t get beyond the fact that pet costumes are, in actuality, a cruel and unusual punishment that should only be reserved for the most drastic of occasions. This is why I have trouble dealing with these 11 pet costumes. Is it just me? Or does anyone else find them somewhat questionable, too? Please tell me I’m not alone here… More
Pets are wonderful. They bring their owners so much joy, and for years reports have been coming out saying that having pets reduces your stress and blood pressure and generally causes you to live longer. But what those reports fail to include is the indirect result of pets on pet owners’ roommates. Sure, in many cases having a kitty or cute dog around is a welcome distraction from the fact that your roommate hasn’t done the dishes in over a month, and sometimes your roommate’s pet is the thing you actually like most about living with her. But other times, not so much. Especially when barf is involved. More
Everybody loves pets, even pets themselves! And is there anything more darling than an animal with an even little animal of its own? No, definitely not – the animals in this gallery are the cutest.
This chart is very useful for deciding which animals make good pets. For example, adopting a firefly will just lead to heartbreak, but a hippopotamus will live for forty years! Also, um, I thought dogs lived forever… More
Have you guys been checking out our sister site Blisstree? Not only is it a one-stop shop for women’s health and nutrition, but also for weird costumes for you and your pet! Please, do not buy these. But definitely take a look at them, and the other top posts from Blisstree this week.
I attended Adoptapalooza’s pet fashion show last weekend, an event held during Fashion Week to encourage folks to take home rescued animals. I arrived early and had to time to check out the scene before the show started (and to pet a few doggies). Pups were wandering around wearing little vests saying “Adopt Me” and a truck bearing 50 caged kittens meowing in unison broke my heart. More
Glee actress Lea Michelle is a triple-threat with a heart of gold. The star of stage and screen has a habit of rescuing stray animals and gifting them to her costars. Cheerleader-playing actress Heather Morris got a kitten and Harry Shum, who has a supporting role as Mike Chang, received a dog abandoned near the Glee set. We came up with some other pets Lea should be on the lookout for as castmate gifts. More
