This Cologne Will Make You Smell Like a Kitty

Demeter Fragrance Library is known for their wacky and weird colognes, including the Play-Doh fragrance we've previously covered. Now they've developed a new and fantastic scent based on that warm, cuddly smell of a kitten. No word on whether or not it will affect those with cat allergies, but I guess there's one easy way to find out.

You can buy your cologne over at Demeter -a .10 ounce sampler of the cologne goes for $3 or just dive in for the 4 ounce spray at $39.50.

Family Leaves Husky Home Alone For Three Hours, Husky Redecorates House

Dogs don't care about home decor, cleanliness or whether they live in a pile of filth, but their humans do- which is why people who want to keep their house clean shouldn't leave their dog home alone for long.

This goes double for breeds like Huskies, who make messes and tear stuff up even when their humans are home, and if you leave a Husky home alone you'll learn this lesson the hard way.

The canine interior designer behind this renovation disaster was left home alone for a mere 3 hours, which was plenty of time for the pooch to find some calligraphy ink and leave his mark all over the house.

He even left a single paw print signature on the comforter as his final gesture of flippancy towards the home owners. I've heard interior designers can be moody but this is ridiculous!

You might not expect that animals would care much about tetherball, but Rambo the ram can't pass by  any challenge without giving it his best. As this video demonstrates, here's what happens when you give a ram a ball on a string -the end result doesn't leave the ball in great condition, showing why you should never mess with a ram.

Seriously, folks - quokkas can't look sad or grumpy even if they tried. No wonder they love taking selfies!

What's Inside A Rattlesnake's Rattle?

Rattlesnakes are one of the most feared group of venemous snakes in the world, but it's not the rattlesnake's fault they meet (and bite) so many people and pets when encountered in the wild.

In fact, they're born with a built-in defense mechanism and warning device that should make people and pets steer clear- the rattle in their tail.

It's terrifying to hear that rattle while you're out enjoying nature, and many animals are innately terrified of the sound, but how do their tails make such a creepy sound?

(YouTube Link)

Daniel and Lincoln from the What's Inside? channel dissected a rattlesnake's tail to see how it rattles, and even though Lincoln was totally grossed out he learned one thing- there ain't no balls in there!

Narcissist Bird Loves to Stare at Its Own Reflection

Image: Nick Wiggins/ABC

When wildlife expert Caitlin Raynor spotted a bird mesmerized by its own reflection in a window, she thought that people might be worried about what it was doing. So Raynor posted a little note that reads, "I'm a Bush Stone Curlew. I'm fine. I just like to stare at myself in the window."

Little did Raynor knew that she'd be launching the bird into Internet stardom, with images of the "Narcissist bird" rattled 'round the web. But Raynor said that the behavior was actually quite normal for this bird species.

"They're primarily nocturnal so they're not used to seeing their reflection," she told the BBC, "They're not being aggressive. They're just fascinated with the 'other bird' in the reflection."

If I were that cute, I'd stare at myself that much, too!

Puppies vs. Couches

These puppies want to be on the couch so bad! They're too young to jump and too short to climb, but they give it their all because the couch is where the humans sit!

(YouTube link)

Puppies will learn soon enough, with a little growth and a lot of practice, so enjoy them when they're little, and be sure to take video. Enjoy this compilation from MrFunnyMals. -via Tastefully Offensive

This Cat Tried to Eat a Snake and Got More Than She Bargained For

Cats are known for their hunting skills, but that doesn't mean they always know what they're doing. This little kitty found out the hard way that hunting is not always as easy as it seems. 

(Video Link)

Unfortunately for Marianne, she ate the snake from the tail end and the snake saw a convenient hole to escape in, which happened to be her nose. Marianne's humans were there to help remove the snake, but while the kitty was obviously happy about having the snake pulled from its nose, the snake didn't survive the encounter.

Meet The Designer Cats With Wild Blood

Breeders who want to create a new and original breed start their genetic mix 'n' match wherever the jaguars and servals prowl.

Designer cat breeds, like the Bengals and Savannahs, are born from a breeder's desire to own wild cats, so they mate typical domesticated breeds with wild felines until they achieve the desired look.

Jean Mill was the first American breeder to breed Bengals, a cross between domestic cats and wild Asian leopard cats, and her cool looking designer cat continues to inspire breeders to mix it up and see what happens.

(YouTube Link)

Vox created this informative video to trace the roots of designer cat breeding in America and show what it takes to make those "small cats that look like big cats" that drive pet people crazy.

This Snake is All Smiles

Justine Kobylka is a snake breeder who specializes in making creatures with new and fascinating scale patterns. Her newest creation took eight years to perfect, and it has made her quite famous on the internet as she created a snake adorned with emojis. 

(Video Link)

A lot of people dislike snakes, whether because they think they look gross, because they aren't cuddly or because they don't seem as loving as other pets, but these smiley pythons might change some of those perceptions (though they still won't feel very cuddly).

Canine Freestyle and Flyball at Cruft's

Canine Freestyle Dancing has come a long way since we last posted a routine. At the Cruft's Dog Show over the weekend, Lucy Creek and her dog Skiffle King performed a spooky little act to "Danse Macabre" flawlessly. Skiffle not only dances, but sets up the props, too!

Creek and Skiffle King took top honors in the Freestyle Heelwork To Music competition. And then there's Flyball, a competition that's new to me. It's competitive relay fetch with hurdles! Here are the final four teams competing at Cruft's; skip to about 5:30 to watch the dogs fly.

This Kitty Just Found the Best Toy in History

(Video Link)

This little kitty just wanted to play, but her pup buddy was ignoring her -so she found a new fun toy to play with instead. Surprisingly, the dog doesn't seem to mind all that much even though it seems like biting and scratching on the testicles might be a little uncomfortable at the very least.

Guy Makes Custom Hats for Toad That Shows Up on His Porch Nightly

Chris Newsome noticed that night after night, the same toad kept showing up on his porch. He loved seeing his toad friend every day and decided to help improve the little guy's life by adding a little flair to his style by making him stylish foam hats.

The toad kept coming back after he gave him the first hat, so Chris kept making him new hats every day. 

Maybe the toad liked getting to play dress up or maybe he just liked having a friend to hang out with every day, but either way, the two certainly have a strange and wonderful relationship.

Olly Does the Agility Course

The Crufts Dog Show is going on this weekend in Birmingham, England. Here we see Olly the Jack Russell terrier taking part in the agility competition, in the class for rescue dogs. Olly steals the show with his performance.

Do Cats Really Hate Water?

Simon Tofield and Nicky Trevorrow bring us another edition of Simon's Cat Logic, in which they address a cat's complicated relationship with water. The average cat knows there's a big difference between water for drinking and water that gets on one's fur. And there's a difference between falling rain and water one can drown in, like a bath.   

(YouTube link)

There's also a difference between the water in a cat's water dish and the more delicious water found anywhere else. You'll find some really good tips for cat owners in this video. It ends with two Simon's Cat cartoons about cats and water.

This Parrot Can Perfectly Imitate a Baby

(Video Link)

This parrot must be around a baby 24/7 because he sure has all of those cries and wines down. To test how accurate his sounds are, I made sure to crank the volume up to see if my dog noticed -he is fascinated by baby cries. Sure enough, he sure fell for it, so it must be dead on.

What do you parents think about the bird's impression? Dead on, or dead wrong?

The Common Foods Dogs Can And Cannot Eat

Some pet owners seem to know little to nothing about which foods their dog can eat and which ones will make their pup feel ill, so they feed them random foods without a second thought.

And unless their dog becomes so ill they need to go to the vet they don't make the connection between these random foods and the fact that their dog always has an upset stomach.

So if you want to know what your dog can and cannot eat and avoid giving them a gut ache then this "Can My Dog Eat That?" infographic put together by Here Pup! is a perfect primer.

Firefighters Rescue Same Dog Twice in One Hour

Firefighters in Nanticoke City, Pennsylvania, were called to a home last week over a report there was a dog on the roof. A husky inside the second floor had managed to open a window, popped out the screen, and went outside on the slanted porch roof. His owner was not at home. A firefighter climbed to the roof and got the dog back inside, then closed the window. But that wasn't the end of the story. 

About an hour later, firefighters received another public assist call to same location for the dog on the roof. The dog apparently wanted to be back outside again and reopened the window and let himself out again.

That's one determined pooch! So they got the ladder out again and a firefighter once again got the dog back inside. This time, they made sure the window was secure. -Thanks, John Farrier!

Animals No Longer on the Endangered Species List

If you follow news on endangered species, it can get pretty depressing to see so many animals facing extinction. But not all news about endangered animals is bad news. In fact, on TopTenz, you can read about 10 animals who have been removed from the endangered species list -including the panda that has served as an icon for conservation of endangered species since the WWF chose the bear as their icon in 1961. And while we so often hear about poachers decimating rhino populations in Africa, their cousins in India have also been taken off the endangered species list in the last decade.

There might still be a lot of animals that need our help out there, but articles like this are a reminder that we can make a difference and bring animal populations back from the brink. So see the whole list over at TopTenz.

Photo Of Dog Wearing Pants Settles The Internet's Greatest Debate

(Image Link)

It's a question nearly as age long as which came first the chicken or the egg or if a tree falls in the woods, and the debate still rages on- how would a dog wear pants? On all four of its legs and half its body or just on the back legs?

This topic has been discussed online quite a bit, and the debate heated up again when writer Jared Keller posted this meme on Twitter:

When asked 81 percent of people thought the two legged style seemed best, but then a few weeks ago Jared was finally able to put the debate to bed when he spotted a dog IRL wearing pants.

Four legged style it is, folks! And in case you couldn't see the dog pants well enough in that pic here's a closer shot of a different dog wearing the same pants:

Meet Darla, The Therapy Chicken Who Likes To Wear A Tutu

Darla the chicken dares to defy convention- when folks said she was going to die she lived, when they said chickens don't wear clothes she put on a tutu, and when they said chickens aren't therapy animals she became fully certified.

Darla was brought home by rescue group Green Dogs Unleashed founder Erika Proctor and her son Finn, who raised Darla to be an individualist and a survivor.

She sports her tutu and hair bow with pride, uses the doggy door and likes to hang out with the Proctor's other pets, and her laid back nature made it possible for her to become a certified therapy animal.

The Proctors hope to get Darla approved for a school therapy animal program someday soon so kids can see how cool a chicken can be.

Not Regular Kittens

In 2008, a farmer in the Chita region of Russia (north of Mongolia) found that a new litter of kittens had been born in his barn. They were unlike any kittens he'd seen before. He called the office of the Daursky Nature Reserve, and an officer came who identified the kittens as Pallas's cats, also called manul. They waited for the mother to return, but she didn't, so the kittens were taken to the wildlife office. The Fedotov family volunteered two nursing mother cats, and brought them in (with a remaining kitten) to feed the wild kittens.

The nature reserve sheltered the kittens for six months, then released them with radio collars. But it was autumn, and the hand-raised Pallas's cats had trouble hunting in winter, so they were found and brought back to the preserve.

Once spring arrived, and the cats were older, they were released again, this time successfully. The source of the story is in Russian, but there's an English version here both with more pictures.  -via reddit

Cops Build Condo Outside Station For Stray Cat

When cats have chosen your home to be their new home there's nothing you can do but accept their choice and make their stay a little more comfortable. But what if the cat has chosen a police station as her new home?

If you're the Boston Police Department's SWAT Team you build your furry little calico colored guest a cozy cat condo so she can stay warm in those chilly winter months yet maintain her outdoor lifestyle.

Officer Jaime Pietrosk spearheaded the campaign to build SWAT Cat a home she can call her own, and now the station is safe from mice and invading birds, but criminals not so much...

Poki, the World's Most Annoying Cat

Rachel and Jun (previously at Neatorama) already had two cats, but then they found Poki, injured and malnourished, on a highway. After his recovery, he showed his true personality. Poki is annoying, selfish, persistent, obsessive, and won't take "no" for an answer. Those traits are fairly typical of cats, and we find them endearing up to a point. Poki takes them to extreme.  

(YouTube link)

In this video, Poki has become obsessed with the plastic recycling bin, in addition to his other annoying habits. What can Rachel come up with to keep him out of it? Nothing, it seems. Poki is going into the garbage bin again. -via Metafilter
