Someone Should Tell These Dogs They Aren’t Cats. Even If They ARE Super Cute.

Usually, people define themselves as “cat people” or “dog people.” Cats and dogs are such different parts of the family, you can easily see why people draw that line in the sand. Cats keep to themselves and are independent. Dogs love being part of the action and need their pack master. 

But what about dogs who forgot not to act like cats? These confused canines must have been hanging around their kitty friends too much, because I think they got a little confused… 

At least it’s adorable:

1.) “Why is the dog on the tree, now?”

2.) Yay, this is for me!

3.) If we fits? We sits.

4.) Some little puppy thought he found his brother.

5.) Just chillaxing and sunbathing with the cat.

6.) Now, firefighters need to rescue dogs, too.

7.) There’s always more room on the cat tree.

8.) Aww, look at those pretty kitties.

9.) Well, the cats made this seem really important.

10.) Awww, they even sit alike.

11.) Ah, yes, the graceful Husky feline…

12.) No matter how catlike some dogs are, they can’t resist sniffing butts.

13.) Look at me, look at me!

14.) Cat-sized and proud of it!

15.) Curled up in a ball? Check. Hating the rain? Double check.

16.) Unfortunately, dogs don’t land on their feet nearly as much.

17.) The cat tree tubes were basically made for wiener dogs.

18.) Unfortunately, Sandy could only make it to the first kitty tree tier.

19.) SUP? Meow.

20.) Shhh, no one tell her she isn’t a cat…

It’s just TOO precious.

It doesn’t matter if these dogs are having adorable identity crises… it’s just so cute! Whatever you do, don’t treat your cat like a dog. 95% of cat owners who attempt to take their cats on walks are never seen again.

This Powerful Ad Will Make You Think Seriously About Becoming An Organ Donor.

The animated short film Long Live New York aims to ignite a movement in New York. It hopes to inspire New Yorkers to step up and help their fellow man by signing up as organ donors.

The 90 second animated short film created by Oscar-winning director Laurent Witz (Mr. Hublot, 2014). It is the centerpiece of a campaign designed to increase organ donor registration in the greater NY metropolitan area. The short depicts a melancholy, post-apocalyptic New York City crumbling to pieces. New Yorkers begin carrying pieces of the broken city (street signs, manhole covers, Grand Central clock) to form a beating heart, thus restoring life into the city.

New York as a state ranks 3rd in the country in people waiting for organ donations. It also ranks 49th in registered organ donors. Hopefully this ad will push people to register themselves as donors. For more information on becoming an organ donor in New York, visit the official website of the New York Organ Donor Network.

When Running Through A Field, This Dog Does The Funniest Thing. He’s A Kangaroo!

Everyone has their own quirks…and that goes for dogs as well. Some have squeaky barks while others may not bark at all. For this greyhound in the country, though, his quirk is beyond adorable. When he needs to run through a field, he doesn’t just run. Instead, he hops like a dog-kangaroo hybrid.

Who knew that dogaroos existed? I need to adopt one ASAP, because this is just too cute.

Why This Stranger Picked Up Some Drunk People Is Shocking. You Have To See This.

On June 22nd, 2013 at approximately 3:00 am, a man named Matthew Cordle killed Vincent Canzani while drinking and driving. On September 3rd, 2013, Matthew posted a video online. It was titled, “I killed a man.” In the video released by Because I Said I Would, he confessed to killing Vincent while he was driving drunk. Seven days after the video was released, he was charged with aggravated vehicular homicide. The mandatory prison sentence in the state of Ohio is between 2 and 8 years; he was sentenced to 6.5 years in prison. This is the video:

The man who filmed this video decided to spend a night driving drunk people home. He “wanted to spend last night doing what Matt would have done if he was a free man.” As a result, multiple people who were drinking arrived home safely and will remember to be responsible in the future.

He stood outside holding this sign.

“The first group I picked up was a bachelorette party. I let them play their own music. No joke, they played “Call Me Maybe” twice in a row and not on accident. They were very nice and kept trying to tip me. Of course no tips were accepted.”

“Bobbi, the girl in the passenger seat is sneaky though and left behind $38. This will be donated to Mothers Against Drunk Driving in Vince’s memory. “

“The next couple I picked up just became homeowners. Getting a DUI can be financially devastating. Good decision guys!”

“One guy I picked up claimed that he helped create the “We are the World” remake music video that benefited Haiti in 2010. I will give him the benefit of the doubt. He seemed sincere. He said that he got the opportunity to meet Justin Bieber. How unfortunate.”

“[He] also wanted to tip, but instead made the promise to donate $20 to Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. Legit.”

At the end of the night, he stopped by Taco Bell where the line was long… and probably full of drunk drivers.

“I drove people around for about 4 hours. No one puked in my car so I consider that a win.”

“Because I said I would” is a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept.

You can also support this organization by visiting and liking their Facebook page.

This Little Mini-Pig Grew Into a Big Cutie. Plus, She Changed Her Owner’s Lives.

When Derek Walter and Steve Jenkins from Toronto, Canada, adopted a miniature pig two years ago, things didn’t exactly go as expected. They were prepared for the tiny porker to plump up to a possible 70 pounds, but she had surpassed that 8 months into pig parenthood by hundreds of pounds.

These pig parents were shocked, but were also dedicated to keeping the cutie, named Esther. She quickly became a beloved member of the family.

When they first adopted her, Esther weighted a petite 3 pounds.

She grew a bit too big for their home…

She now weighs in at 625 pounds.

She still fits right in with the rest of the family!

He’s probably explaining to her how cute she looks.

With the help of an Indiegogo campaign, they received $440,000 in donations to move with Esther to a farm.

The farm is a sanctuary for others like Esther who were abandoned and in need of a good home.

She also inspired them to change their eating habits and become vegans.

Who would want to give up this gorgeous girl??

Pig smooches!

What a goofball.

Looks like someone is hungry.

She’s so well behaved.

Sweet swine dreams.

I may never eat bacon again after this. You can follow all of Esther’s farm adventures on Facebook and on her parents’ website.

What You’re About To See Is Far From A Crazy Cat Lady. In Fact, It’s Absolutely Awesome.

Have you ever heard of the term “cat lady?” Usually this phrase has a negative connotation. Visualize a person who adopts way too many cats and ends up having too much focus on their kitties – that’s what a cat lady is typically supposed to be like. Someone with just a few cats can be called that term, but what about someone with over 700? Lynea Lattanzio has over hundreds of cats on her property… and a dozen dogs and a handful of goats. She’s not crazy, though. She is running one of the largest lifetime adoption cat sanctuaries, The Cat House On The Kings.

Over 700 kitties live at the sanctuary.

Since its founding 22 years ago, The Cat House on the Kings has saved over 24,000 cats and 7,000 dogs.

They have also spayed and neutered 40,000+.

This sanctuary for unwanted cats is being added to daily.

Lynea didn’t want to confine the cats to a small room, so she lets them roam.

All of these cats are available for adoption.

But if new families don’t want to take them home, they can spend their life at the Cat House.

Not only is this a home for homeless cats…

And an organization that is dedicated to help control the pet overpopulation…

But they also want to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.

The Cat House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, receives no government or public funding, and relies entirely on donations from the public to carry out its mission.

Without the shelter, these cats would be roaming the streets.

They wouldn’t know love.

Or regular meals.

They would have a rough life.

It takes a special person to be responsible for a pet…

But for hundreds?

Thousands?

The Cat House is doing wonderful work.

Saving the lives of over 24,000 cats is remarkable.

Even these kitties think so.

(And they’re not easily impressed.)

Source: Cat House on the Kings via Bored Panda If there were more “cat ladies” like this in the world, there would be fewer homeless kitties. What Lynea and her team are doing is wonderful. If you’d like to support this incredible no-kill shelter, please visit their Donation page. You can make a cash donation, sponsor a cat or dog, donate items or even volunteer! This is a wonderful cause, spread the word by sharing this article.

The First Picture Shocked Me. But Not Nearly As Much As The Next Five… Whoa.

Agee is unlike any other polar bear you’d ever see in captivity or in the wild. Her best friend is her human animal trainer, Mark Abbot Dumas. He took her in and began hand-raising her when she was only a tiny cub. Now, he can wrestle, play and train her while completely trusting her. Not everyone can take a long nap with a polar bear after a long day of work.

Mark Abbot Dumas is the only person you’ll see in a position like this.

Barcroft USA

Honestly, Mark is the only man in the world who can touch a polar bear in this way.

Barcroft USA

But taking a little swim with Agee the bear is completely normal for Mark.

Barcroft USA

Mark and the 800lb bear are very close and share a lot of trust.

Barcroft USA

The trainer and his wife Dawn took in and trained Agee when she was only just eight weeks old.

Barcroft USA

She was a surplus cub at Kolmarden Zoo, Sweden. Instead of staying in a zoo, she was taken into a family and trained to be in movies.

Barcroft USA

Agee performs a variety of commands for Mark, but in exchange for her favorite treats. She loves to chow down on steak, cookies, salmon and chocolates. Her trainer believes that she actually loves her work. “They are extremely intelligent animals and you can see she gets enjoyment out of being stimulated through her work.” She could have never lived in the wild, so it’s important to keep her busy. Her work and play with Mark makes her happy (even if she does get a little jealous when she sees him working with other women). Via Daily Mail Agee is pretty fantastic, share this wonderful polar bear with your friends by clicking on the button below.
