Hi there, my name is Dug. My master made me this collar so I may speak in 140 characters or les — SQUIRREL!

You always knew your pup was a bit of a bird-brain; now he can actually tweet. At this year’s New York Toy Fair, Mattel announced Puppy Tweets, a collar tag with sensors linked to your home computer via Wi-Fi. The tag sends a tweet to your dog’s Twitter account whenever the animal moves, barks, or naps.

And here’s the… uh… extreme… erm.

The More You Know: Why Kittehs Knead

The_more_you_know2Q: Why do kittehs knead?

A: That loud purring followed by the sharpening of claws on some soft spot is called “milk-treading.” A nursing kitten instinctively uses his paws to draw out milk, gently pushing on his mother’s stomach to increase the milk flow. When older cats behave this way, it’s a good sign that they’re happy, content, and probably recalling their kittenhood.

Well, of course I’m a beta tester!

What better line of work for a guinea pig could there possibly be? Why, with this nose, I can sniff out software bugs faster than you can peck a pile of pellets, pal!

So where do you put the batteries?

There ought to be a little door on the bottom here where they go in… Or do you wind it up? ‘Cause if you wind it up, I don’t see the little slot for the key…

Wait, this is a real bunny?! Oh, get out!

Says Katie L.: “I met these little bun buns on July 4th in St. Louis when I was visiting. The upside down blonde bunny put me in a CUTE COMA and I hope it does the same for you.”

What is the Internet, again?

The Internet is not a big truck that you just dump something on! It’s a series of tubes! With ferrets in them! And these ferrets have beady eyes and beepable pink noses and they tell me what to do! And right now they tell me to show you…

…A CUTE OVERLOAD EXTREME CLOSE-UP!!

Sender-inner Cat tells us that her ferret Plankton here outgrew the tubes.

Shh, Dad’s still sleeping off Mardi Gras

Yep, he stumbled home yesterday, and just passed out. Keeps mumbling about someone named “Fifi LaRue”—we assume that’s who gave him the feather boa.

Says Elisabeth K.: ” Humphrey is too big for his basket so he often stretches out in the most ridiculous poses, but the feather boa really adds a je ne sais quoi, non? And Minnie follows him everywhere like an adoring little sister.”

“Life moves pretty fast. You don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. (Although life always seems to move a lot slower whenever I get a bath.)”

Nice faux-hawk, Amy G.
