Six Reasons Why Pets Are Better Than Dates

Pets snuggle with no ulterior motives.

You expect your pet to sometimes smell funny. You worry when your date does. Conversely, your pet seems to enjoy it when you are especially malodorous, whereas your date does not.

Your pet doesn’t mind so much when you wear matching outfits.

Your pet doesn’t care if you have put on a few pounds, have some extra hair in weird places or if you’re wearing those holey sweatpants. Some dates expect you to step it up.

When you give your pet dinner out of a bag, can or crisper drawer, they act like it is French cuisine.

Your pet will always be happy to see you and will act like it’s been an eternity since they saw you last. If your date is not happy to see you, get a different date. Better yet, get a pet.

Chinchillas! With! Cheerios!

Masumi T. and husband Chadsen K. just blew the roof off of CO. Gone.

Whaddawehavehere, Masumi? “White Chinchilla (Dad): Shifu. Black chinchilla (Mom): Boba. Gray Chinchilla (daughter): Mimi.”

“Plain Cheerios were recommended by their vet as a snack, so they’re safe to eat! :)”

“Shifu one day kept a Cheerio in his mouth for about a minute before deciding to eat it.”

“I probably squirm every day because of their immense cuteness!” [Imagine that. -Ed]

“If this is submitted you don’t have to use the description I gave at all to describe them, it was just so you get an idea of what was happening. :)” [Oh, we got it. -Ed]
UPDATE! We got another batch JUST IN!


No Cats. No Rack. Aw, Rats.

A touching tale from sender-inner Deb S. “For a couple of wonderful years we had the pleasure of living with Domino — the cutest fancy rat with the most affectionate personality ever. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to her recently and now miss her very much. We thought you might enjoy this video of her snuggling in my son’s shirt while nomming a piece of ham.”
