From Jasmine F.: “This is my 5 Month old Samoyed puppy Rufus – and I may be biased, but I think he’s the cutest ever.” No argument here. And what ABOUT that Side-Eye. Textbook.



You’ve Got Competition, Google Maps the form of Cat Street View, in the town of Onomichi, Hiroshima Prefecture, Big J. Think of it as Google Maps Street View, just…with cats. Many of them. Click here to view it. Click to enlarge the next 2 photos.



The low angle of the camera means you get to experience the view of the area as a kitteh would- low to the ground.

If you come across an image with a cat in it, an icon appears, and you can click on it to learn more. If you read Japanese, natch.

Quoting Daily Mail: “The map works on desktop and mobile browsers but is best viewed in Chrome. The audio can be muted by clicking the speaker icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the map.”

Herman Tries Apple Sauce

Herman The Tortoise has a Close Encounter with a bit of apple sauce and from the looks of things, this won’t be his last nom.

“This is Herman The Tortoise trying apple sauce for the first time. He’s 2 months old and we’ve only had him for a week, but the store we got him from informed us he’d only eaten re-hydrated pellet food, so we’ve been spoiling him with Kale, Bok Choi and …(unsweetened, pure) apple sauce.” -BJM.

Juno #FTW

beluga-whale-photobombYou might recall Juno, the popular Beluga that hangs out at Mystic Aquarium. He’s been known to greet the kids, officiate wedding ceremonies, bump into things, and…listen to Mariachi music. Now Juno is back, starring in a press conference that Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy also happened to attend, playing the role of straight man.
