Bark, bark, bark-AWWWK!!

Talk about scrambled: According to the Daily Mail, when her owners saved hen Mabel from the chop, Mabel repaid the favor by keeping their pups warm. Hot dog!

Ocelittle

How did this little cutie escape our attention for over three years? He’s a Brazilian ocelot, born at The Louisville Zoo in November, 2007, and given the suitably diminutive name of… (booming echo effect) El Conquistador!

C.O. Travels the Globe!

Hoist a tall frosty one — with your cat! Each spring, the quiet German village of Lürkensproingen hosts Bierfest für Katzen, a beer festival for our feline friends. Sample such daring local brews as Wach und Schlief (“Awake and Asleep”), which substitutes catnip for hops in the brewing process.

Danke to Beer Ambassador Kristyn L. (You can spot more photos at SloshSpot.)

Cat, trapped in refrigerator, eats own foot

Yes, it’s another “Airplane!” reference (it was just on TV Friday night). I suppose naming the cat Taters just made the foot seem even more delicious, Misty C.

It got three stars in the Michelin guide

OK, listen to this: Rooms overlooking the ocean, free wi-fi, day spa with massage and mud bath, 24-hour butler service, daily in-room flower delivery, 60-inch flat-screen TV, and you get a pug on your pillow when you check in.

… and a free monogrammed robe that says Yumi W.

THIS JUST IN: Spotted Licorice Whatzit

It’s not a whatzit, it’s a baby tapir, with the kind of nose-snout-mini-trunk thingie, and the stripey-spotted fuzzy outsides, and it was born last January at the San Diego Place With the Buildings With the Animals In Them and the Stuff.

well, I guess it’s all pig, really.

Slightly icky Rule 25 action

Justine W. sends us a textbook case of Rule 25 in action: If you dangle your paw, it’s cute.  But that ain’t all that’s dangling, if you catch my drift.

Tripping balls

It’s like spin cycle for the mind! This film by French director Pleix tosses chirping eggs and tennis balls into the cutest, freakiest laundry day ever.

Also, take a look at Pleix’s commercial for Duracell: Today’s weather calls for a swirling vortex of bunnies, transforming into sumo wrestlers by mid-afternoon…

Thanks to Phillip P.
