Cat plays patty cake with itself in mirror

Puppy finds adorable way to clean his pee puddle


Good boy, Pablo!

Most dogs accidentally go #1 (or even worse, #2) from time to time in the house – but Pablo just might be the first dog to clean his mess up himself.

When the pup wasn’t able to make it outside to use nature’s bathroom, he was forced to use his human’s bathroom (well, the floor of his human’s bathroom). His human then tweeted a photo of the toilet paper wad Pablo the puppy lovingly created to soak up his pee.

Of course, the dog could also have just messed around with the roll of toilet paper after his bathroom break, but it’s more fun to think of him as being a clean canine.

Nothing calms Polly the goat’s anxiety like her duck costume


This adorable baby goat and her duck costume are totally the G.O.A.T.

Polly was rescued by Goats of Anarchy, an Annandale, New Jersey-based sanctuary that rescues special needs baby goats. She suffers from several neurological issues which can sometimes cause anxiety.

Luckily, Goats of Anarchy’s founder Leanne Lauricella discovered the best (and cutest) way to quell her anxiety: by putting Polly in a fuzzy duck costume.

“Polly is very used to being clothed, it’s all she knows, so a costume is no different to her… or so I thought,” Lauricella wrote to Mashable. “While out shopping one day, I spotted the cute little duck costume and had to have it. The first time I put Polly in the costume, she just closed her eyes and fell asleep. She seemed very peaceful.” Read more…
