High-quality, long-lasting and local--the qualities we know every good product should have. So how come we as a nation continue to buy things that are far from that description?
The Made in America Project ponders this question. "Many designers and manufacturers are overcoming business challenges and pressures to outsource. They, along with consumers, value what has steadily diminished," say founders Micha Thomas and Jaime Lawson. "We believe their stories ... Read More

Do you ever have those days where you wish you could switch places with your cat? I’d love to take a day off of work to just sleep and purr and enjoy that feline life. Alas, it was not meant to be.
But at least you can take a break from all of your human-work to appreciate these cats’ amazing sleeping powers! Seriously, I wish I could sleep the way some of these cats are sleeping. It’s a skill.
Because climbing ... Read More

I hope Jenny Slate catches this post, because I have found all of Marcel the Shell's friends and family. Thanks to artist, graphic designer, and owner for Green Ink Studio, Inka Mathew's teeny tiny personal project, "Tiny PMS Match," she has bestowed us with yet another terribly adorable procrastinating tool. Mathew's project matches miniscule, everyday objects to their Pantone® color equivalences, photographs them with her iPhone, and it is so god damn ... Read More

Get ready to cry your eyes out over this crazy cuteness. At Taipei Zoo in Taiwan, this li’l panda was injured just a few days after birth and had to be separated from her mother for treatment. Yuan Zai was placed in a special incubator, where she was cared for and closely monitored.Now, about a month later, Yuan Zai is healed and the unbearably cute creatures can have their family reunion. Although it might look like the mother, Yuan Yuan, is trying to bite ... Read More

With all the upsetting, uber-depressing news pouring in left and right lately, I believe a good cat video is in order. This furry lil friend is up to no good, trying to nab some human's rug. (But what do they need it for anyway? They don't even have claws to knead and rip it up with! Silly humans.) Just try to tell me you've seen a cuter game of tug o' war. Watch the rug thief below and be sure to share any great cat vids you have in the comments ... Read More

Happy Furry Friday everyone! I’m surprised it took me this long to write my first cute baby animal post at BUST, but I’ve finally made it! And I’ve saved myself for something that is epic levels of precious, so brace yourselves: it’s a kitty in little knitted costumes.STOP, MY HEART! This poor little baby, named Wasabi-Chan, got attacked by a crow in early June, resulting in a split tongue, fractured jaw, and had to be fed via ... Read More

Here at BUST, we strive to give you the latest in feminist news, pop culture, and, of course, baby animals. Because we all know the world would be a darker place without them.
Today we’ve got a whole new load of photos from my new favorite species. Meerkat siblings Fips and Luck were born on April 23 at Aachen Zoo in western Germany and were unfortunately rejected by their mother. The zoo staff has since been dedicated to the cuddly twosome as their ... Read More

We can’t get enough of cute critters taking baths. Is that really so wrong? I mean, yes, maybe we went a little overboard with a list of our favorite bathing beauties, but hey, we make no apologies for bringing you the best in cute. So once again, let us baby talk.
What animal could we possibly have in store for you today? A bunny, of course. Now, I’ll be honest: bunnies aren’t my favorite YouTube stars out there. They’re kind of ... Read More

We couldn't resist. There are just too darn many adorbs critters out there getting all squeaky clean in the cutest way possible. I mean, if you saw this little guy refusing to leave his bath, you know that sometimes our furry friends really do have an appreciation for hygiene. Some like lathering up, some like the shower head, and some even like the blow dryer, if you can believe it! Others just chill out and float around in the water. We've got all kinds of ... Read More

A kitten could roll around in excrement, and I would still give it all the love in the world. Luckily for me, this one little fur ball thoroughly enjoys a good cleaning and is even afraid to venture out into the real world without its mini-bathtub. I feel you, Cat. I feel you.
The video shows the white kitten lazily bathing with a few human-provided captions here and there. I mean, it’s like the cat knows what it has, and who could blame it? ... Read More
