Tiger Lifeguard Squad!

One lucky zoogoer in Tokyo caught this tense ResQte with a happy ending: Two white tiger cubs saving a sibling who fell in a pool of water. The plucky cubs just won’t give up until they pluck their pal to safety!

How to Give a Back Rub

For young children, offering a back rub can be a thoughtful way to help a parent unwind after a hard day. For best results, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure your parent wants a back rub at this time. (Especially important if your mom is Chancellor of Germany)
  2. Retract claws.
  3. Begin at the shoulder blades, making concentric circles, gradually working down the…
  4. Excuse me, did I stutter back there? RETRACT CLAWS!

A Ripping Good Yarn

When we last met Kwanza and puppy pal Honey, they had become best friends at Darling Downs Zoo in Pilton, Queensland. Looks like they’ve started a project together: building the world’s largest ball of yarn. How’s it going, kids?

Thursday, 11:25 AM: My partner and I were working the day watch out of Homicide when the call came in. It was Kimba, the White Lion. Once a beloved TV star, now lying on the cold tile of his Brentwood ranch house. The coroner had already pronounced him sleepy when we arrived. Our job: get busy with the Sharpies.

The Cute Overload Guide to Surviving a Comcast Telephone Cancellation Request

Start of call: The representative seems courteous and helpful, and merely has a few questions to assist with the cancellation process. Although the questions appear unduly personal, you may ease any stress of the experience by looking at this picture of a smiling tiger cub clouded leopard.

Minute six: Although theoretically willing to assist with the cancellation, the representative is concerned that your desire to abandon such a caring, loving service may be due to latent feelings of resentment of one or both parents, and suggests weekly therapy along with a complimentary 20 Mbps upgrade. During this phase, you may need to gaze at this bunny for strength.

Minute eighteen: Now sobbing into his mouthpiece, the representative demands to know, to learn, to feel the reasons why you have chosen to break the heart of this fine service that exists only to serve you. Was it that one time the Game of Thrones season finale got all blocky? That wasn’t our fault, dammit! During this phase, hide all sharp objects and secure any firearms you may own. This kitten represents your last best chance to retain your sanity. Good luck.

I Think This Place Is Bugged

I’ve had this feeling for days now: haunting me, gnawing at me, the shadowy dread that tells me I’m not alone. Also, rocks don’t usually have blinking red lights on them, so there’s that little detail…

For Starters, Get Your Claws Out of My Eye

Mother of mine, you’re an angel divine, to you I owe all affection
The wisdom you taught can never be bought, it gave me dreams and direction
Always to you I will ever stay true, and never hurt or betray you,
For all you’ve done for your grateful son, how could I ever repay you?

I Am Lion, Hear Me Roar!

As the sun of a new day rises above the arid plains, the majestic lion surveys his majestic realm in all of its majestic majesty.


No creature is safe from the cruel snap of his mighty jaws!

What Would Happen If…

…you invited a Bobcat over for dinner? It would look something like…this.

I, For One, Welcome Our Feline Monopolistic Overlords

Oh sure, you thought it was just a harmless promotion: Letting the Internet pick a cat as the newest Monopoly token. Well, the new version started shipping, and little did we know that it would be an indestructible robot kitty bent on world domination!
