Meet Lil Bub, a truly magical space cat. Found in a tool shed in rural Indiana and born with lots of genetic anomalies, this kitten is healthy nonetheless, managing to garner attention as possibly the cutest kitty on the internet. Her owner, Mike Bridavsky, even says that she might be from outer space! [Read more…]
Lil Bub was found in a tool shed in rural Indiana with a number of genetic difficulties
She is a “perma-kitten,” meaning she’ll stay kitten-sized her entire life
She has a case of dwarfism – her limbs are smaller than the rest of the body so she can’t jump or leap like other cats
Lil Bub’s toothless – that’s why her tongue is always hanging around, and she can’t really meow
She is a polydactyl cat, which means she has extra toes on all of her four paws (for a total of 22 toes, while most cats have 18)
Lil Bub has many celebrity friends, including the world’s hairiest cat Colonel Meow, Grumpy Cat, and even Robert De Niro
She has published a book – “Lil Bub’s Lil Book” – all about her intergalactic travels and daily adventures
And honestly, isn’t she one of the cutest creatures in the world?
She has also made an award-winning movie – “Lil Bub & Friendz”!
Guillermo Caballa, a talented photographer based in Vigo, Spain, loves to take beautiful photos in the forests of Galicia together with his lovely dog Malu.
Caballa’s photos, which he shoots with an Olympus E-M5, caught our eye not just for their beauty, but for their distinctively introspective atmosphere as well. Most of his photos feature lonely forests wreathed in thick fog and a pensive man going for a walk, often together with the ever-loyal Malu. Their subdued but picturesque mood seems to calm and comfort the weary soul.

Cats are the overlords of the internet, but their reign does not go unchallenged – Norman the hedgehog is the latest in a line of adorable internet celebrity hedgehog celebrities (like Darcy and Marutaro) that are wooing the world with their irresistible cuteness.
Norman and his owner, Instagram user Brett Jessie, can’t help but pose for cute photos with each other. The hedgehog is a goofball – as Jessie like to remind his fans, “doesn’t understand the concept of personal space” and often likes to nestle in Jessie’s beard. His owner was worried when Norman recently lost a tooth, but he says that Norman has gotten used to it and is doing fine. Although the pair has only 675 followers on Instagram, their photos have become wildly popular on Reddit. [Read more…]

Tigers are fearsome jungle cats that are near-universal symbols of ferocity, strength and courage, but 57-year-old Janice Haley of Orlando, Florida has a different perspective on the matter. To her, they’re also cuddly kitties. When you see her play with her two pets, 400-pound Bengal tiger Janda and 600-pound white Bengal tiger Saber, you’ll understand why – they’re about as loving and playful as their tiny domesticated cousins.
“As far as they’re concerned, I am mommy,” explains Haley. “They rub me in the face, they’ll let me kiss them on the nose.” The two tigers live in an enclosure in her backyard and are fed by hand 3 times a day. [Read more…]
Here’s a video of Haley with her two fuzzy friends:
Roxy, Blue and Bono are three cute pugs from California that love being dressed up and photographed by their owners – Phillip Lauer, 57, and his wife Sue, 47. Eventually, the couple was contacted by streaming service Blinkbox with an offer to make a short video of their adorable pug trio re-enacting the iconic TV show ‘Game of Thrones’.
Since Sue Lauer is a professional photographer and designer, the family couldn’t resist the challenge. Not only did the short video turn out amazing, the pictures look wonderfully funny as well.

Do you remember those old wall calendars with puppies sitting in baskets covered with flowers? Silly decorations are so yesterday – if you want to get a reaction, you need to stand out. That’s what French photographer Sophie Gamand did with her fittingly-titled Wet Dog photoshoot. [Read more…]
State Senate candidate and advocate for free stuff from the government Sandra Fluke tweeted her visit to the voting booth today in California’s primary election. At first it looks like Sandra is addressing President Obama to tell him the whereabouts of her dog. That doesn’t seem like a nice thing to do to your dog. (Obama ate a dog.) But that’s not what she was saying at all.
Frankly, that’s really not a nice thing to do to your dog either.
Towards the President or the dog?
Disenfranchising allergy sufferers!
Anyone else wondering how Fluke can afford to buy clothes for her dog, but needs the government to pay for her birth control?
