In news that will make you go tear your hair out and punch a hole through your computer screen because nothing should ever be this cute, here’s a video of a couple of 11 week old exotic shorthair kittens rolling around in hamster balls. Even the description alone causes me an intense, violent reaction, but when the video starts, I just see red. The cutest red you can possibly imagine. In fact, it’s more of a pinkish really. So restrain yourself. Restrain yourself or you too will have to buy a new computer. And computers don’t come cheap! Which is why I’m typing this at the library.

Fat Cat On A Treadmill (1 video)

Buddha is a cat. A cat that — how do I put this lightly? He’s uh, big boned. Plump. Hefty. Curvy. He’s got a little extra meat on his bones. Let’s just say he’s been well fed.
Buddha is a cat. A cat that — how do I put this lightly? He’s uh, big boned. Plump. Hefty. Curvy. He’s got a little extra meat on his bones. Let’s just say he’s been well fed. Like, really really well. For a long time. Aw hell, who am I kidding this cat’s fat as hell. Morbidly obese. The big kitty has been put on an exercise regime that consists of walking on an underwater treadmill. It seems to be serving Buddha pretty well — he’s gone from a round 31.4 pounds to a svelte 27.9 pounds. His goal weight? About 20 pounds. But Buddha, by then you’ll just be skin and bones! Skin and bones and a lot of loose, furry skin.

When Nature Runs Out Of Paint: 25 All-White Animals | Bored Panda (26 photo)

Given the millions of different shades of color that we see in nature, it’s no wonder that, once in a while, nature might simply run out of paint.
Given the millions of different shades of color that we see in nature, it’s no wonder that, once in a while, nature might simply run out of paint. Perhaps this is why pure-white animals leave such a strong impression on us. Some of them look like ghostly spirit animals. Others, like albino whales or moose, are lonely one-in-a-million albinos with striking, unexpected appearances. Albinism (with its root in the Latin word albus, or white) is a form of hypopigmentary congenital disorder, characterized by a partial lack or total absence of melanin pigment in the eyes, skin and hair, or more rarely in the eyes alone. Due to this, animals (and humans too) with albinism are unusually pale. The eyes of an animal with albinism occasionally appear red because of the underlying retinal blood vessels showing through where there is not enough pigment to cover them. Some of the animals on this list are albinos, while others are simply members of rare white species. Whatever the case, mankind has been fascinated by such animals for ages. Some consider them to be sacred, and others – demonic. Whether you find them strange, beautiful, ghostly or freakish, we hope you enjoy this collection of animals that nature simply forgot to color in.

I Found A Blind Baby Sparrow Below My Balcony After A Storm (11 photo)

We usually write about other people, but today I want to share my own story. It all began after one stormy night, when my girlfriend saw what we thought was a dead sparrow below our balcony.
We usually write about other people, but today I want to share my own story. It all began after one stormy night, when my girlfriend saw what we thought was a dead sparrow below our balcony. He was barely breathing, covered in ants and completely blind. We usually write about other people, but today I want to share my own story. It all began after one stormy night, when my girlfriend saw what we thought was a dead sparrow below our balcony. He was barely breathing, covered in ants and completely blind. We brought him home and put him in a box. After spending a night in our bedroom, he woke us up with high-pitched tweeting. We tried feeding him, but without any luck, so we placed him in our balcony. He continued tweeting non-stop for 3 hours. Finally, his father found him and started feeding him. He brought his chick huge bugs and bread every 10-15 minutes all day long for two weeks straight. He was getting bigger every day, but he was still blind. I called a vet, and he told me to try simple eye drops. It worked like a charm! He even started hiding from us behind our flowers. Soon, his father started showing him how to fly trough the window. One day he just left – we knew this day would come eventually. We became really worried because that same night, and for the next few days, there was really stormy weather. However, 3 days later, he came back and fell asleep in one of our pots.

Exocoetidae: The Fish That Flies (12 photo)

Exocoetidae, commonly called Flying Fish, is a family of fishes aptly named for their ability to emerge out of the water and glide for long distances with their outstretched pectoral fins.
Exocoetidae, commonly called Flying Fish, is a family of fishes aptly named for their ability to emerge out of the water and glide for long distances with their outstretched pectoral fins. Their streamlined torpedo shape helps them gather enough underwater speed to break the surface, and their large, wing-like fins get them airborne. Once in the air, these fishes can glide over considerable distances. Their flights are typically around 50 meters, but some fishes have been recorded to fly up to 200 meters or more. Some species of flying fish have enlarged pelvic fins as well as enlarged pectoral fins, which allows them to fly further than two winged gliders (up to 400 meters), and have far greater maneuverability. These fishes are known as four-winged flying fish.

Incredibly Expressive Owl Photography (16 photo)

Is that little owl yawning or singing? Belgian-based photographer Yves Adams has the answer as he's the one behind the adorable shot. "Little owls are CUTE!," he states.
Is that little owl yawning or singing? Belgian-based photographer Yves Adams has the answer as he's the one behind the adorable shot. "Little owls are CUTE!," he states. "They make you laugh with whatever they do! But when they start to yawn, my heart melts! This picture has been taken in Spain, with the help of Steve West. This is probably the male, who was clearly bored, while the female was in the nest on her eggs." Today, we bring you over a dozen photos that show you just how expressive owls can be. Whether it's the way they tilt their heads or walk with attitude, you have to agree, they're one photogenic bunch. "There's nothing like observing local burrowing owls over a period of weeks, even months," states wildlife photographer Debbie Tubridy. Whether they're first peeking out of their burrow, beginning to run outside of the burrow, testing their wings, learning to play, or in this case, exploring the world around them and perfecting lifelong skills that will help them survive on their own, they're always fascinating to watch and photograph."

The street artist going by the name of Nychos didn’t have what we’d call a ‘normal’ upbringing. He was born into an Austrian hunting family in South Africa and spent much of his childhood seeing things which many ‘normal’ people would consider cruel or even brutal. For Nychos though, it was a fascinating world. At seven he was bitten by a boar while he was playing in the forest close to home. Just a little while later he had boar meat for lunch. In another instance he saw a dead baby lamb being consumed by maggots the same color as its fur. Instead of being horrified, he was fascinated. He studied the hidden insides of animals and noticed the way life often grows from other life. At the same time he was also a child of the 80s, growing up watching cartoons and being influenced by their flashy bright colors.

DirecTV is beta testing DOGTV, television programming aimed at dogs left home alone. The site claims after years of research, pet experts have finally scientifically developed this channel. LOLWUT? I think we can all agree that’s all fancy talk to justify the $10/month price tag. The Game Show Network doesn’t even cost that much and it’s pretty much the best channel ever. Sorry doggies! Looks like you’re gonna have to stick with the Murder, She Wrote marathons. Sorry not sorry. I know how y’all feel about Angela Lansbury!

What looks like a weirdly crooked panda sniffing the ground, is actually… a leg of a giant anteater! Look closer, and you’ll see its thin snout, tiny eye and one ear right above an astonishing panda-like leg. The illusion is caused by the colors of the anteater’s fur, as its black and white coat forms what looks like panda’s eyes, ears and a nose. What you don’t see are the large claws on each of their paws, which are curled when the anteater walks, and are used while digging through the anthill. Having no teeth, they eat by flicking their tongue up to 160 times per minute, and that way eat as many as 30 000 ants a day! The giant anteaters are the largest ones of the four anteater species, and can be found in different habitats, such as rainforests or grasslands. Unfortunately, the mammal is classified as “vulnerable” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). That’s gotta be one of our favorite animals as of now!

Dog Does Yoga With Owner (1 video)

This is a video of Panchino the chihuahua doing yoga poses in sync with his person. It’s pretty adorable. And, if you’re me, a little enraging. Why can’t my dogs do cute stuff so I can post videos of them on the internet? But noooo, every time I bring the camera out, my dogs gotta be all weird and do gross stuff. One’s licking his privates, the other’s dragging her ass across the carpet… don’t they have any ambition of YouTube success? Clearly they don’t. But sometimes Einstein will roll over for a treat. So there’s that, I guess? Ah, who am I kidding — I’m just grasping for straws here!

Meet Trotter: The French Bulldog That's a Master of Disguise (12 photo)

Yes, we've all seen some extremely cute French Bulldogs, like the one this adorable Japanese boy cuddles up to every day, but have you seen one as mysterious as this? Meet Trotter, the black pup with over 165,000 followers on Instagram. Regularly receiving over 10,000 "likes" on his photos, Trotter is a verified celebrity thanks to her owner Sonya Yu who makes it her duty to snap Trotter in some wonderfully wacky outfits. Of course, it helps that the San Francisco Frenchie is both photogenic and obedient. As Yu told Pic Pack, "She is so patient! She will hold still, stay in the pose I put her in, and balance all of the props. Since she’s so obedient, it only takes a few frames to nail the shot." From a soccer player to a Harry Potter look-alike, this is one dog that's a master of disguise!

Bacon Beach: Island Of Swimming Pigs (4 photo)

They say no news is good news, but news about an island inhabited by a bunch of pigs? That’s GREAT NEWS. Yes, there’s actually an island in the Bahamas that’s home to about 20 swimming pigs and piglets. They’re the only inhabitants on the place, which goes by the name of Big Major Cay aka Pig Beach. If you asked me, I would’ve called it Swine Island or Swinesland for short. But no one asked me. And that, as you can probably imagine, makes me feel a little left out. What does a person have to do to be invited to these naming events, anyway? And don’t you dare say “be in a position of power” because, okay, that actually makes all the sense. Carry on!

Graphic designer-turned-photographer Sebastian Magnani combines man and his best four-legged friend for a collection of whimsical portraits in his series titled Underdogs. Using the head and fluffy fur of a dog cloaked in human clothing, each portrait that Magnani creates features its own personality while putting a smile on the viewer's face. Some of the photographer's canine subjects even have accessories like sunglasses or hats to go on top of their full and luscious manes, heightening the resemblance between man and his dog and making the image all the more hilarious.
