Wait for the punchline for this playful orange cat in a sink.
Oh stop you cute naughty dog! What a mess she is making!
“It’s what makes us a good team”, thought the cute dog in his bath. “You keep me company when I have to get washed, and I give you hugs if you are down.” Yes, we love each other.
Some of you may know about the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand, where tigers are raised by pigs, and pigs by tigers. There are very cute pictures about it. But make sure you hear the right story!
The tigress is called Saimai, a Royal Bengal tigress. She herself was raised by a pig at the zoo, only two years ago.
It seems the Tiger Zoo doesn’t do this for the tiger’s benefit. It is mainly for ours – besides patting tigers, and various live shows, seeing the tiger and piglet family is one of the zoo’s main attractions.
There are two ways of looking at this situation. One is that it is terrible that tiger families are broken up, and unnaturally paired with other animals, just for human entertainment. Who knows what emotional distress it causes them, when they have no choice in the matter!
The other side of the story could be that the tigers and pigs are being cared for, when hundreds of tigers (and millions of pigs) are killed every year. Also, did you know, there are more tigers in US backyards than in the wild? As much as this tiger/pig bonding seems unusual, just as unnatural is tiger/human bonding in circuses and zoos.
We also hope that seeing these beautiful animals encourages people to look after both kinds of these amazing creatures.
As for us – we wonder if the pigs will grow up a little like their mother – a bit like this famous little guy did.
This cute owl was just told the story of the Owl and the Pussycat. It caused him such consternation he found it easier to follow the sense of the rhyme with his head on its side. “Marry a pussycat! I don’t think so,” said the Owl, “And a boat! Pshaw to that! But an ‘elegant fowl’, I certainly am that!”
If you don’t know the story of the Owl and the Pussycat you can read it here, but watch out for your head ending up on its side too!
Two cute owls who find the camera much more interesting than each other.
Poor kitty thought he would at least get some meat!
There are lots of cute ducklings about, and a bucket full of ducklings makes a bucket full of cuteness.
Have a look at this pug dog in their very own pug dog slippers.
We see some cute tumblr pictures from time to time, but this is our this week favorite – a fennec hare to go with our fennec fox.
This cute dog is known as Firehug Jimbo. He has come down his bamboo pole as fast as we can say Woosh! to deliver just the hug you need for a bad day. Just don’t ask him what he does up in the heights of the bamboo grasses – he wont say a thing!!
Cats and dogs together makes you think about what true friendship is. Perhaps it’s just enjoying each others’ company, whatever other people may think. Forward this to a special friend!
