Tiny Hamster and friends are getting into the holiday spirit a little early, and you this time they’re firing up the grill!
Animals are generally photogenic creatures — that is until humans step in and make things entirely more awkward than they need to be.
Does a sloth need to pose in a portrait? Does a lizard need to wear rabbit ears? Of course not, but that doesn’t stop people from taking pictures of those things anyway.
Even the animals are confused…
Smile…very, very slowly.
Oh, sure. Everyone thinks that little kids and adorable furry pets are innocent and couldn’t possibly be thinking about anything other than how they can be good and make you happy.
And by “everyone,” I mean people who have never met a kid or a pet.
Yes, they’re cute. Yes, they’re great most of the time. But don’t be fooled. They are also silently plotting their revenge for early bedtimes, trips to the vet, and being forced to wear ridiculous clothes half of the time.
Do I look amused?
This bear just loves the water!
Cat-lover and photographer Monika Malek is on a mission to change the way people think about disabled cats and show that they are just as wonderful as any other ‘able-bodied’ feline through her “I Am Still a Cat” project.
“I wish to change the mind set of dividing cats into categories of worse and better, and hope that people would treat disabled cats normal — not special, not worse but, simply, normal,” Malek said. “That is why I chose to create this photography project. In hopes that at least a tiny percent of people will stop being afraid of and change the way they look at disabled cats.
“It doesn’t matter whether a cat lacks an ear, eye, tail or eye, if it has leukemia or any other disease,” she continued. “It is still a cat. It still purrs, washes itself slowly while squinting it’s eyes, meows, knocks things off the table, pulls clothes off a hanger, etc.
Monika photographs her cat models getting up to the usual feline antics, and by doing so, she shows that these cats are just like every other cat.
This is Amber. She’s a little over a year old and only has one eye, but she “is still a cat.”
New things are always exciting when you’re a duckling…
The life of a circus animal is often unfulfilled; constantly on the move, they are confined to metal cages, away from their own kind, and more often than not, are abused.
But for Will, a 13-year-old lion who spent his entire life in a Brazilian traveling circus, all that is about to come to a glorious end.
Watch him feel the grass under his paws for the first time ever…
Will was rescued by the Rancho dos Gnomos Santuário (the Ecological Sanctuary Association – Rancho dos Gnomos) in São Paulo, Brazil, which has dedicated nearly 25 years to caring for neglected and abandoned domestic and wild animals, rescuing them from accidents, abuse, circuses, trafficking and habitat loss.
You’d never know he spend his entire long life in captivity — he sprung out of that cage like a kitten!
This little Corgi is about to make a shocking discovery…
It doesn’t matter if you’re a wee little pup or a big grown dog, dinner is always the most important time of the day.
Summer is officially here, and humans aren’t the only ones who are ready to put the long, cold winter behind them in favor of warm, sunny days.
Sunshine? Check. Pools? Check. Four legs? Check. These pets have it covered.
Everything is just ducky.
Watch this feline stay cool as a cucumber, even as his quiet place for a nap turns into a wild ride.
