Cat Naps in front of McDonald’s, Completely Underwhelmed by Humans

This cat needed a quiet spot to take a nap. He chose the front door of a McDonalds’s during lunch hour.

Was it a bad choice? The cat doesn’t care. People can walk by or over him. They are no threat or use to him.

Four New Clouded Leopards

A litter of four new clouded leopard cubs were born on May 12, at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington. Their mother, Chai Li, has not been feeding them, so they are monitored and fed round-the-clock by the zoo staff. They don’t yet know how many males and females there are, but they had their portraits taken at one week. See the pictures at Facebook and a bonus video at YouTube.



Clouded leopards, which are not closely related to leopards, range from the Himalayas through Southeast Asia. They are the smallest of the big cats. There are around 10,000 left in the wild, and they are classified as vulnerable. -via Buzzfeed

Squirrel Wants to Drive the Car

(YouTube link)

The problem with taking your squirrel for a drive is that he might want to drive. And he doesn’t even have a license! This little guy is named Phineas Bean. My husband had a squirrel when he drove a big rig, and said he never had a problem with the squirrel wanting to drive, because he was more interested in sitting on the driver’s shoulder so he could look out the window. -via Daily Picks and Flicks

Woman Spring Cleaning Her Closet Finds One Big, Many Little Surprises

YouTube Link

And now, from my "I'm so glad that happened to someone else" file, a Los Angeles woman was cleaning out her closet when she found a plastic bag full of surprises, one of them big, saw-toothy and hissing. I have to commend her for her bravery. I would have called a SWAT team or something of the sort.

Cats Attacking Cursors

(YouTube link)

When I was a kid I noticed that cats and dogs don’t pay any attention to what’s on TV. But that was the old cathode-ray tubes. Flat screens are a completely different animal, as far as animals go. Now mum cats will sit and watch whatever we watch. They prefer nature shows, but haven’t yet learned to use the remote. Cats and computers can be hilarious, especially as a cat regards that flitting cursor to be the same as any insect on a wall. -via Tastefully Offensive

Bird Yanks out Boy's Loose Tooth


(Video Link)

Meg Favreau predicts "CBS will buy the rights to this video and have a show called 'Bird Dentist' on air within six months." Bird Dentist sounds like the great premise for a failed pilot episode. David Boreanaz should play the parrot and Andy Dick should play his sassy dental hygienist who has pyrokinesis.

Aston Androshchuk, the boy in this video, should have at least a cameo in the pilot.

If you have spent any time with West Highland Terriers (Westies), you've likely seen the big personality that often powers those little dogs. In this footage, a 17-year-old Westie named Boy is being walked by his owner Beril through the streets of their town during a festival that includes a live band. According to Beril, the dog, who is deaf, pulled her closer to the music and began the doggie dance seen here. That's the look of sheer joyous abandon, is it not? -Via Arbroath

Whack-A-Mole Game for Cats

Slap that mouse! The allure of this feline version of the carnival game whack-a-mole is irresistible. A generous cat owner made this impressively detailed game that manually pops mice up holes. The resident cats jump at the chance to jump at mice. You can see built photos here, as well as instructions in Japanese (translation). It’s much better than the reversed version of the game: whack-a-kitty.

Here’s another feline lip dub masterpiece from Faireset (previously at Neatorama)! A cat named Amaron is trying to seduce a lovely lady cat by reciting Shakespeare’s prose from Romeo and Juliet en Francaise -as well as he can recall it.

Nesting Crows Pester Panda

(YouTube link)

Eating and sleeping is pretty much what giant pandas do, and this guy takes his duties seriously. He cannot be distracted even when a crow comes and pulls his fur out! The crow is soon joined by another, and together they pluck fur to line their nests. The panda don’t care! Watching this, it occurred to me how convenient it is that birds build their nests in the spring, just as mammals shed their winter coats. This was recorded last spring at the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo. -via Daily Picks and Flicks

Sid The Beagle Enjoys Posing With Food In His Mouth Without Ever Eating It

You know your dog is well trained when you can get them to sit still with a treat on their nose awaiting permission to gobble it up, but is a dog that holds food in his mouth without ever eating it well trained or just crazy?

Sid the beagle is extremely fond of people food, but he doesn’t enjoy eating people food, he’d rather just hold it in his mouth and pose for the most deliciously adorable pictures ever taken.

Crazy or not, Sid is one precious pooch, and his owner Alex Hopes loves sharing Sid's food modeling moments with the world via his Instagram account @myregalbeagle. Check it out and see all the different foods Sid has refused to eat! -Via Laughing Squid

German Names For Animals Literally Translated Into English

German seems like a difficult language to learn, but when you discover how easy it is to create names for things in German by simply stringing words together it doesn't seem so hard to learn after all.

For instance, which two words would you put together to describe a sloth?

If your answer was "lazy animal" you nailed it!

Now a hippopotamus may seem harder to describe in two words, but if you combine their favorite river with a similar animal type you've got a rather apt description of a hippo (although I would have added "pig" in there somewhere)

And then there's the virtually inexplicable platypus- a strange hybrid creature that could be described as an otter duck or a duck billed beaver or simply a plate full of platy, but the German language streamlines the description quite a bit

See more of these amazingly accurate English translations of German names for animals here

We're Not The Only Ones Batty For Bats

(Video Link)

As I've previously stated, we at Neatorama are big fan of bats and their adorable little fox faces. It's hard not to fall in love when you see them munching down snacks with those big emotional eyes and puffed out cheeks. While I've always known that we're not alone in our love of flying foxes, I was pleasantly surprised to hear that one of our favorite actors is also a big fan of bats.

So which celebrity am I talking about? Well, would it help if I told you this little baby's name is Jackie Sparrow? That's right -Johnny Depp sponsored this orphaned little babe after she was rescued by the Australian Bat Clinic & Wildlife Trauma Center in the same area where Depp was filming his newest movie and one of Depp's vocal coaches also works at the sanctuary. It didn't take much to convince him to symbolically adopt the cute little one.

Cats vs. Socks

YouTube Link

Is there anything more ambiguously evil and threatening than a sock? Not to these cats. They recoil in horror, try to capture and conquer, stalk and pounce, but still, they don't appear to be winning the battle. Imagine their disgust during the holidays when their humans open up package after package of brand new terror. Oh, the humanity. Via Tastefully Offensive

Time-Lapse Video: Doomed Puppy Grows to Adulthood

Dave Mienert, a filmmaker, discovered a 4-week old Great Dane puppy. She was the handiwork of a backyard dog breeder. She had a genetic disorder that would leave her blind and deaf eventually. All of her littermates had died or been born deformed.

This was not a healthy pup, but Miernet adopted her and named her Pegasus. He wasn't sure how long he would have with his new friend and so decided to record it all. 


(Video Link)

Pegasus often walks on a treadmill. Miernet compiled these scenes into a time-lapse video showing the weak puppy growing into a strong adult dog. He says, "I still don’t know how long she is going to live, but right now is pretty great."

Dog Spins Donuts in Motorboat, Stopped by Spoilsport Humans


(Video Link)

A man and his dog went out on the water in Townsville, Queensland, Australia on Monday. The human fell out of the boat while it was moving quickly. He had very foolishly never taught his dog how to pilot the boat, so the poor dog was left spinning around.

Three men in another boat and a jet ski intercepted the boat and brought it to a halt.

Mission: Impossible Cat Caper

Ekant Veer noticed that the cat treats were going missing, although they were in a closed drawer, and the family never noticed the drawer open. They knew it must be the cat Anfield taking them, but how? So they set up a camera inside the drawer to capture the caper.  

(YouTube link)

We know cats are liquid, because they take the shape of their container. Anfield managed to snag the cat treats by oozing into the furniture without ever opening the drawer. He escaped the same way. -via Tastefully Offensive
