Anyone else out there having one of those days/weeks/millennia in which they consistently question the goodness of mankind? Most of the news cycle is designed to point to awful people doing awful things. It's hard – especially on Thursdays – to be an optimist. Anyone recall, for instance, CURRENT NFL player Michael Vick's heinous, terrible, disgusting dog-fighting ring, for which this miserable scumbag served a mere 21 months in ... Read More

Maybe they're just napping - but we like to think they are emptying their minds of all thoughts and attachments to their kitty ... Read More

Okay, okay...so perhaps you already saw this video in 2011, shortly after PBS profiled the reunion of childhood-friend-elephants Shirley and Jenny at the Tennessee Elephant Sanctuary. But if you have even the slightest soul, you can watch it again, damn it. Separated for twenty-two years and held in captivity, these two gentle giants were afforded the chance to live free after long, lonely lives. And what happens when the two old friends meet again is possibly the ... Read More

It's the start of another week, which means it's time to face the struggles of life anew. What better to combat that with than videos of small and fuzzy animals doing ridiculous stuff?!

In that spirit, we've prepared for you a clip-a-day to keep productivity away! Happy squealing.
On Monday, we are all a Bun ... Read More
Pinterest is all about sharing joyful images, and kittens are all about sharing sweet, tender love. There is one very special calico cat who lives across the street from my family’s house, and while she loves to run away and hop on our lawn for some treats and snuggles, my husband-to-be and I don’t get the curl up with her as much as we’d like. Sometimes a gal just needs some eye candy to get her through a day without kitty kisses, and luckily, ... Read More
Like so many others, my life revolves around my dog. My dog Remy’s life, however, revolves around fetch. I am woken many mornings by a joyous bouncing of her rubber orange ball, so (naturally!) I am always on the lookout for new innovations in the field of fetch.
