Need To Relax? Watch This Adorable Time-Lapse Of Kitties Catching Some Rays!

Wahey! Summer is fast approaching and the sun is starting to warm up, brightening our days.

But while us humans are running round buying BBQs, trying to find those perfect summer clothes, and slathering ourselves in sticky sunblock, our feline friends are taking it easy by chilling and soaking up those rays.

A perfect example are these adorable Japanese house cats who love nothing more than relaxing in the sun. There’s just one problem…as the day goes on, the sun likes to move around. But these clever kitties have come up with their very own system of dealing with it…

Well, that proves it. Cats are solar powered!

This Massive Dog Can’t Even Handle Playing With Tiny Kittens

If you think that cats and dogs really can’t get along, you’re in for a rude (and painfully cute) awakening.

When this dog’s human brought home a litter of kittens, she probably felt a little apprehensive. How would her massive pup take to living with babies? Would she be gentle? Questions like these must have raced through her mind. Fortunately for everyone involved, the dog adorably put those concerns to bed.

How great is that? If you need me, I’ll be playing this on a loop until further notice.

The Science Behind Why Cats Meow Is Oddly Touching (And Very Surprising)

Everyone knows that dogs bark and cats meow, but we really didn’t know why. That’s what inspired this group of scientists to dig around and figure out what causes the cat’s meow.

The answer that they found is pretty flattering, and so surprising. When you learn the truth, you’ll never look at your feline friends the same way again.

That certainly explains a lot. Here’s what veterinarian Dr. John Bradshaw of Bristol University had to say:

The meow starts off as a kitten vocalization. It’s something they use in order to call their mothers over…the mother is very attentive to those meows. And then as the kitten grows up, it gradually stops meowing, presumably because it just stops working. The mother wants to wean the kittens and stops responding. A pet cat is constantly meowing at its owner. It’s a way of getting the owner’s attention.

Pretty cute, am I right? They’re just trying to talk to us!

This Is Probably The Most Patient Cat You’ll Ever See

Compared to dogs, cats get kind of a bad rap. Sure, some of them seem entitled, mean for no reason, and just all around uninterested when we’re craving their love…but others have incredibly admirable characteristics, too.

Take this cat, for instance. While some felines have been known to lash out for god knows what, this cat just lies there while an entire litter of puppies crawls all over her. If this doesn’t show that parents will put up with just about anything, I don’t know what will.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

She’s so chill!

This is probably exactly what she’s thinking.

Her Fish Was Choking, So She Grabbed Some Tweezers And Saved Its Life

When you hear the phrase “unbelievable animal rescue,” your mind probably brings up images of dogs, cats, and larger critters like horses. One animal that probably doesn’t come to mind is the humble goldfish.

After five years of friendship, one woman couldn’t let her goldfish, Brindle, suffer a horrible death after swallowing a rock in his tank. Quickly springing into action, the woman grabbed a pair of tweezers to dislodge the stone. After multiple attempts, she was successful in saving her fishy friend so that he could live to swim another day.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

That was one big rock! Let’s hope Brindle learned his lesson. Just stick to fish food, okay?

Rescuers Refuse To Give Up On A Cow In Need, Going To Amazing Lengths To Save Her

The good people of Animal Aid Unlimited are back at it with yet another incredible rescue video, and if you thought they were only out there helping cats and dogs, boy were you wrong. This time a cow was in desperate need of their love and care.

The poor cow was living at a garbage dump after having been left there with a dozen or so bovine friends. What made this particular farm animal more in need of help was that she was slowly being strangled by a rope that was deeply embedded in her neck.

What’s amazing is the lengths the rescuers went to help her, running around in a vast, putrid garbage dump for four hours before they finally caught her.

Every animal deserves the right to humane treatment and that certainly includes cows. They’re living, breathing, emotional beings just like any other.

You can help make more incredible recovery stories like this possible by donating to our friends at Animal Aid Unlimited.

These Cats Think That Their Human Is A Tree, And What They Do With Her Is So Funny

When an entire litter of kittens was reunited with the woman who saved them, they only wanted to do one thing — show her some love. But in their minds, there was only one way to do it.

Not waiting for her to sit down, the industrious kittens decided to get up to eye level the only way they knew how. Check out their bizarrely cute methods in the video below!

I mean, whatever works, right? Judging by all of those giggles, I don’t think this lady minds one bit.

Animal Siblings Bring New Meaning To Fighting Like Cats And Dogs

Cats and dogs have a bad rap when it comes to not getting along.

And while those knock-down, drag-out fights do happen, animal siblings living in the same house have to learn to put up with each other the same way human siblings do. Growing up in my house, hardly a day went by without some sort of sisterly argument over the bathroom or our clothes.

If only we could have worked it out like these two! This adorable dog-cat duo takes bickering to the highest level of preciousness, and their pet parent always provides hilarious commentary.

Go to your rooms and think about what you’ve done! (And maybe do it again so we can see more videos.)

Red or green chiles? Obama fields tough questions on ‘Morning Mayhem’

http://twitter.com/#!/PounderFile/status/236455980056064000

President Obama isn’t big on taking questions from the White House press corps. But when the hosts of New Mexico’s “Morning Mayhem” radio program wanted to ask him some hard-hitting questions, he was so there!

Warning: you might not be able to handle this much mayhem.

Naturally, there was discussion of New Mexico’s cuisine.

Sounds like the president's views on mole are still evolving. http://t.co/jJ7BJBxn

— Sam Jacobs (@sampjacobs) August 17, 2012

And finally, we have an answer to the question reporters have been waiting weeks to ask the president: Red chiles or green?

Obama interview on KOB-FM #ABQ so far centers on food. Mr. President prefers red over green #NMchile

— Mónica Ortiz Uribe (@MOrtizUribe) August 17, 2012

"I think you gotta go with the classic red, although every once in a while, green is solid." – President Barack Obama http://t.co/XNyJZcOX

— NRCC (@NRCC) August 17, 2012

Gutsy call! But fair enough. He was speaking to a New Mexico station. The other softballs weren’t quite so geographically-oriented.

Third question to Obama: What's your favorite songs to work out to?

— Joe Pounder (@PounderFile) August 17, 2012

"Crazy in love is a pretty good song to work out to" — Pres. Obama, on a radio intv in NM

— Mike Memoli (@mikememoli) August 17, 2012

He also mentioned Nas — at least we think that’s who he was talking about.

https://twitter.com/FirstTeamTommy/statuses/236464776388165632

Obama pronounces Nas like it rhymes with "pass," as opposed to the typical "noz" (3:20) https://t.co/oU9SfVsP

— Julian Hattem (@jmhattem) August 17, 2012

This one might be our favorite.

If you could have any superpower what would it be? Speak any language, POTUS says. "The whole flying thing is pretty good," he adds.

— Mike Memoli (@mikememoli) August 17, 2012

Is that the lamest superpower anyone has ever wished for? The superhuman ability to be … multilingual?

Most powerful man on the planet is asked what superpower he'd prefer. He picks Rosetta Stone.

— Cuffé (@CuffyMeh) August 17, 2012

Obama's choice of super power would be to have a Babble Fish? Dude.

— DrewMTips (@DrewMTips) August 17, 2012

Tough question for Prez: What would your superpower be? We'd be happy if the President could settle for remedial math powers. #tcot

— NRCC (@NRCC) August 17, 2012

And now for some musical mayhem.

"Is your favorite song Call Me Maybe? Really you could tell us"

— Tim Miller (@Timodc) August 17, 2012

Evidently Obama hasn’t heard the original, but the narcissist in chief has seen the mashup that features him.

RT @BenjySarlin: Obama has seen the Call Me Maybe mashup of his speeches. #LocalRadio

— WhiteHousePressCorps (@whpresscorps) August 17, 2012

And now for a real tough one. Don’t sit too far forward on the edge of your seat.

Final question to Obama just now: What's the best advice you've ever received?

— Joe Pounder (@PounderFile) August 17, 2012

This Obama interview is the biggest joke ever. The hardest question is "what's the best advice you've ever received?"

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) August 17, 2012

His answer? “Be persistent” and disciplined. Too bad that was the last question. There was so much more to cover!

It's a shame they didn't have time to ask the more #HardQsforObama like what do you like better? Surf, or turf?

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) August 17, 2012

More #HardQsforObama "Do you like puppies or kitty-cats?" Seriously…

— Ted Newton (@Ted_Newton) August 17, 2012

Wait … was that another food question?

The interview ended on a professional note.

Conclusion of interview: "I just flirted with the President of the United States of America"

— Joe Pounder (@PounderFile) August 17, 2012

Keep your clothes on, doll. November is right around the corner.

Americans are struggling and have serious ?s that deserve real answers. Instead, POTUS flirts w/pop radio host http://t.co/DUUl8X0L
