These Animals Look Like They're Posing For The Cover Of Their Band's New Album

Animals don't have to pretend to be cool or put on airs when they're hangin' with their buds because they were born too cool to care, and they look cooler just sitting there not posing for a pic than any human ever could.

This inherent coolness makes groups of animals automatically look like members of a hot new band, and when you photograph the pack you've got the makings of a super slick album cover for the hottest album of the year.

The best thing about an animal band is they will play for food, but when it comes to trashing hotel rooms they're much worse than their human counterparts- because their room destruction involves way more fecal matter.

Man Plays Peek-A-Boo With An Adorable Little Owl

Wild animals have been known to act strangely when they meet a human, putting on a little show meant to either welcome or intimidate their new acquaintance.

It's hard to tell what this little owl was thinking when it played peek-a-boo with Michael Stephenson at the Bridlington Birds of Prey and Animal Park near East Yorkshire, England, but Michael was thinking that tiny owl was the cutest thing he'd ever seen.

Michael was honored to have been chosen for such a sweet game of peek-a-boo, but for all he knows the little owl was trying to scare him off by popping up and unleashing its super intimidating stare upon him. Nice try little guy!

Man Teases Dog About Giving Away His Treat, Dog Has A Lot To Say About The Betrayal

Teasing the family pets can be fun, especially when they act like little punks all the time, but if you're going to tease your pets at least have the decency to capture the whole thing on video, so we can all have a laugh at their expense!

Six years ago Andrew Grantham took the joy of teasing the family pet to a new level of ridiculousness on his YouTube channel Talking Animals with this video entitled "Ultimate Dog Tease".

In it Andrew imagines what his dog would say when Andrew teases him about giving his treat away to the cat, and needless to say this is one of the funniest and most important videos ever posted on the internet.

Dog vs. Ducks

Hey Maymo! Would you rather play with a hundred duck-sized ducks, or one horse-sized duck?

(YouTube link)

Maymo the lemon beagle wants to play with all of them, of course. The video description sets this up as a "prank" on the dog, but he's just plain delighted. -via The Daily Dot

Helping a Little Buddy Cross the Street

A hedgehog is trying to cross a road in Tambov, Russia. A gaggle of geese know that the hedgehog is small and pavement-colored and it's likely that drivers won't see him. So they do the right thing and give him an escort! Notice the one goose that holds her wings out to be more visible. It looks like she is holding traffic back!

(YouTube link)

They make right proper crossing guards, don't you think? Yeah, sure, it's possible the geese aren't paying a bit of attention to the hedgehog, but that's not nearly as cute. The entire group made it to the other side.  -via Tastefully Offensive

Hermit Crab Uses A Creepy Doll Head As Its Shell

Hermit crabs can't be too picky about choosing a new home, because while they're looking for new digs they're at the mercy of predators.

But hermit crabs do seem to have a sense of style when it comes to choosing a new shell, and they're often attracted to shells that have shiny bling, sharp edges or shells that look tough and intimidating.

I can't imagine any animal, predator or otherwise, would want to mess with a hermit crab sporting a creepy doll head on their back, so this hermit crab shared on Reddit may have found the ultimate form of passive defense.

Maru and the Aquarium

Maru the Japanese Scottish fold is ten years old, but he still loves his boxes, no matter what they are made of. His roommate Hana is all grown up, and still taking lessons from Maru. In this video, Maru confronts a see-through box, or what we'd call an aquarium.

(YouTube link)

We can clearly see that Maru, like all cats, takes the shape of his container, and is therefore liquid. -via Tastefully Offensive

Good Dog Goes to Class

Jessica Lewis planned to bug out of her apartment and head to her parents' home in Atlanta before Hurricane Irma hit. She asked permission to bring her dog Luna to Dr. Kennedy's class on Thursday, so she could leave straight from there. Buttering up the professor didn't work.

So Luna went to a political science class, and yes, she was a good girl. A dog in the class had to be good for students axious about the hurricane.

“She was pretty well-behaved in class, She went straight to whoever was talking for the most part, like if someone was answering or asking a question. Just walked around and got pets from everyone and made friends. The really funny part was that every time the professor stopped and asked if anyone had questions or comments, she whined loudly like she was responding. It was hilarious.”

Overdramatic Cats Who Deserve An Oscar

(Image Link)

Dogs can be whiny, barky and growly little jerks when they want to be, and they often overreact to situations when they're anxious, but nobody acts out the overdramatic reaction like cats.

They put their whole body into freaking out, and the expression on their face when something scary is going down will never cease to crack us up.

(Image Link)

It's honestly a good thing we have cats around to warn us when something we thought was totally normal is actually crazy scary, so we can run and hide alongside our "fierce" feline family members.

Dad Builds a Palace For Dogs

Aaron Franks built a doghouse on his deck. That's a bit of an understatement. This is not ordinary doghouse! It's a three-level dog dreamland featuring stairs, three entrances, cubbyholes, beds, a pool, three swings, an umbrella, tunnels, a pirate wheel, a potty pit (complete with fire hydrant), and a water dispenser.

(YouTube link)

Franks also has a monitor in his bedroom so he can watch his four pit bulls enjoy their doggy mansion. His wife didn't realize the scope of the project, as he worked on it for two years. He may add more in the future.  -via Tastefully Offensive

Animals Did Things For The First Time, And Had The Funniest Reactions

When our pets have a new experience, their reactions can be awesome. The title for the cat picture above is "We forgot to tell our cat that we had a baby." Yeah, she is surprised, to say the least. In the sequence below, the guy bought and used a vacuum cleaner of the first time. You have to wonder how much cat hair he had to clean up by then.

It's not just cats. Dogs can surprise us with their reactions, too, like this dog who had never seen kittens before, but then suddenly was confronted by four of the infernal fluff balls.



Bored Panda presents another mega-post, with the reactions of cats, dogs, and some other critters reacting to a new experience. There are over 200 submitted images, ranked by votes. -via Metafilter

What's the Weirdest Thing Your Pet Has Ever Done

(Care For Your Pets by Legendary Phoenix)

Pets are magnificent and part of the thing that makes them so great is that no two pets are exactly alike. And in fact, some animals are just plain weird. Over on our Facebook, we recently asked our readers what the weirdest thing their pet ever did was and the answers were as delightfully fun as you might expect. A few examples:

My cat got in the bathroom and took a dump on the toilet like those trained cats we see on YouTube. In the end he sit at the door and looked at me like saying "no one will believe in you"

Or:

My cat opens the freezer and sits in it. When we aren't home, stuff thaws because he doesn't close it when he leaves! He will also sit on the bottom shelf of the fridge and we've accidentally locked him in...

Or:

Tried to use all the remotes in the house to hide his poop. I mean all of them bedroom remote, tv, Dvd, and the Xbox remotes were pushed on top of the pile.

You can read all the great comments here, or add your own weird pet story in the comments on this post.

Hemingway Cats to Stay Put for Irma

As Hurricane Irma bears down on Florida, expected to hit the keys hard, many people are wondering about the Hemingway cats. The Hemingway Home & Museum in Key West has 54 cats on the property, most of them polydactyls, descended from Hemingway's favorite cat Snow White. General manager Jacque Sands says have all been brought inside. They, along with about ten employees of the museum, are staying put through the storm.

Transporting the cats in stop-and-go traffic, in 90-degree heat, was not an option, Sands said.

Forecasters think Irma will make landfall in Florida as a Category 4 with 140 mph peak winds.

But Sands said she, the approximately 50 cats and the other employees will be OK.

“I’ve been in this house in a (Category) 4. ... It’s one of the most fortified buildings on this island,” she said.

The home has been boarded up, and all the cats have been accounted for. You can follow their preparations at Facebook.

Bear vs. Flamingo

A baby bear crashed the party, and everyone else had to move indoors. As expected, mama bear wasn't too far behind! If you an adult, you may feel a little nervous at how much noise all these kids are making in front of the bears. Baby bear was a little disappointed no one wanted to play with him, until he saw the pink flamingo-shaped pool float. That's what he'll play with!

(YouTube link)

Everyone inside was just waiting to see the flamingo deflate, but mama bear was in a hurry to leave, so baby bear just took it with him. -via Digg

Cat Gets a Belly Rub

Malkia Park Rescue Station in Orechová Potôň, Slovakia, takes in exotic animals from circuses and private homes. The lioness here is named Malkia, too. She is a product of circus breeding, and was raised by humans. A rescue park is the only place that is safe for her to live, although I wouldn't trust it to be as safe for humans as this woman does.

(YouTube link)

The park welcomes visitors, and will even let you pet some of the animals -but not the lions! -via Digg

This Dog Constantly Stalks His Owner Wherever She Goes

Do you ever feel like someone's watching you? For most people, that's just a pointless paranoia but in the case of Lauren Birney, she's pretty much always right. Lauren's two-year old bull mastiff, Cyprus, suffers from separation anxiety and never lets her leave his line of sight. 

Wherever Lauren goes, Cyprus is sure to follow, whether that means going to the bathroom with her, peering at her from behind the couch or poking his head under the blinds.

Cyprus has earned himself the nickname of "convicted creeper" in his household. "Sometimes I have no idea that he is creeping on me until I get up off a seat or look around the room and find he will be standing behind an object with his head sticking out staring at me," she said.

Possum in a Hardware Store

In Brisbane, Queensland, recently, a possum was spotted eating the plants for sale in a hardware store. From the YouTube page:

"While wandering through the garden section of a hardware store, I was surprised to see a very special animal customer eating the tomato and strawberry seedlings. A native Australian brush-tail possum, which is usually nocturnal must have felt a bit hungry. He didn't appear to be frightened and seemed to relish the attention! Protected by law they can't move him more than 30 meters away from where he is found."

(YouTube link)

This video contrasts the many differences between the U.S. and Australia. First off, this is a possum, and he's cute. In America, our possums have an "o" in front of them, and they are ugly as sin. Second, no store owner here would put up with any critter eating the merchandise, but in Australia, they appear to be tolerated, and even cooed over. Third, it is autumn in America, and all the plants are gone from the stores. -via Tastefully Offensive

This Calf Was Born Ready To Join The KISS Army

Farmers and ranchers should be careful about what kind of music they play around their pregnant cows, or else they might end up with a herd that's part of the KISS Army.

This cute little KISS fan was born on July 28th on a ranch in Kerrville, Texas, and she was named Genie since her genes clearly modeled her facial markings after The Demon of KISS, Gene Simmons.

She likes to stick her tongue out like Gene too, and hopefully Genie will keep rockin' out to KISS even if her Demon face paint changes with age.

Cat Crosses City Street Like a Boss

YouTuber DEOKHEE KIM watched a cat at a busy city intersection in South Korea. The cat patiently waited until the crosswalk light turned green, and then proceeded to cross. What a clever cat!  

(YouTube link)

It must be a born-and-bred urban cat to learn to read a crosswalk sign. However, I have a suspicion that the cat merely waited for all the cars to stop, which is not obvious from the framing of the video. It's still a clever cat, which is the only kind that roams city streets as an adult. What do you think? -via Tastefully Offensive

Rooster Attacks, Kills And Eats Cobra

Chickens are constantly getting eaten by foxes, wolves, coyotes, cougars and other predators, but you don't hear about roosters getting eaten quite as often- because they can be scary tough.

Most predators are lazy and try to avoid harm when out hunting for their meals, and roosters will put up a fight with flailing claws and flashing beak capable of causing some serious damage, so predators tend to steer clear of roosters.

But what is a predator like the cobra to do when a rooster decides to beat them to the punch and gobble them up first?

Badass Animals Who Don't Care About Our Stupid Rules

(Image Link)

Animals don't have any use for our human rules, and unless obedience equals food they won't always heel and obey like a good pet- because their wild side tells them they can do whatever they want and they'll get away with it.

(Image Link)

It doesn't matter how long we spend training them, yelling at them or trying to convince them we're their masters, our pets are gonna do whatever the hell they wanna do whenever the hell they want to- and boy are they ever gonna rub it in.

(Image Link)

And when they finally decide to wholesale take our homes from us and turn us into their pets things are going to get really weird, as our new masters take to standing on tables and barking orders.

("I sent my dog outside as punishment for standing on the dining room table, this was his response"-Image Link)

Cat With a GoPro

Have you ever wondered what your cat does all day while you're at work? Aaron of AaronsAnimals hung a camera around his cat's neck to find out.

(YouTube link)

Well, that's just what you'd expect from a cat. He climbs on the furniture, knocks things off tables, watches TV, pranks the dog, takes selfies, flirts with the neighbors, menaces wildlife, and then welcomes you home, acting as if he's been a good boy all day. -via Everlasting Blort

Otto The Skateboarding Stunt Dog Earns A World Record

There are so many skateboarding animals out there it's hard to stand out, and the animals who manage to draw the internet's attention quickly lose many of their followers when the new skater cat or dog comes along.

But nobody will ever forget Otto the skateboarding English Bulldog from Peru because he does all his own stunts, and Otto even set a Guinness world record for "longest human tunnel travelled through by a dog skateboarder" by rolling through 30 human arches.

(YouTube Link)

Here's the whole scene from a different camera angle, so you can appreciate just how far Otto had to roll to earn his Guinness world record.

Pusic's Dinner

We've seen how annoying cats can be when they're hungry, especially if they have a dinner bell. It's not so bad if you're just watching one in a video, but you have to put yourself in the place of someone who owns such a cat. Is it really worth the aggravation for a viral video? Watch the Russian cat Pusic (previously at Neatorama) order his dinner from a menu.

(YouTube link)

Pusic has to be the luckiest cat in Russia. Yeah, what you thought was going to be his dinner choice was just the appetizer! Pusic has to have everything. -via Metafilter

Snowflake and the Spider

Snowflake has never seen anything like this! It's a huge spider that makes clacking noises. She wants to investigate, but reacts about how I would if I saw a spider this big. We know it's a remote control toy, but she doesn't. She nopes out of there twice in this video from Fabulous Mr. Pug.

Cat Did Not Need a Rescue

A young cat is down in a hole, and this guy is going to do the right thing and give him a way out. The cat doesn't climb the ladder, so the guy goes down to execute a rescue. Surprise! The cat was apparently doing his own thing, and did not feel the need for your assistance.

Amazing Footage Of Thirty Hummingbirds Bathing Peacefully Together

Hummingbirds are beautiful little birds and fun to watch flit about when they pay your house a visit, but they also like to tussle with each other, and other birds, which then becomes a different kind of spectacle.

So it seems really strange to see a whole bunch of hummingbirds, thirty to be exact, just hanging out together at a pool party without any drama, cool but strange. Oh wait, from the video description:

A record 30 hummingbirds bathe together at one time during this morning’s wash! You’d never know they will be harassing each other in five minutes’ time…

Strange Pets People Adopted Because They Were Bored Of Cats And Dogs

When cats and dogs and parrots and rabbits and rodents are all too ordinary to be your pets you're either very picky, very jaded from past experiences, or you just really like the idea of diversifying your pet interests.

The owner of the aardvark above says he doesn't make a very good pet but maybe a buffalo is a dream pet in a mighty large package, who am I to judge those who choose to dine with their bison?

Actually that looks like it would be really neat to do as long as the buffalo doesn't sneeze or spit on you while you're eating, and hangin' with a buffalo seems way more chill than hangin' with a kanga. I'll have no roughhousing under my roof!
