Photographer Highlights Similarities Between Pets And Their Owners

If you ever watched Disney's 101 Dalmations, you may recall the opening scene in which the Pongo is searching for a match for his human. As he looks out into the street, he sees multiple people, with their dog in tow, and each person matches their dog in some way or another. It's an adorable scene and now we're itching to re-watch that masterpiece. 

In general, they say owners tend to pick out pets that look similar to themselves. Professional animal photographer, Gerrard Gethings, has created these portraits to prove that theory. And honestly, we're completely convinced. 

The resemblance between these pet owners and their beloved pets is uncanny and cannot be ignored. The series is called #doyoulooklikeyourdog and #doyoulooklikeyourcat. Gethings then compares the portraits and highlights the similarities.

Baby Sloths Are Quickly Spreading Joy

They may be slow, but oh my god, they are so quick to get right into our hearts and stay there. Sloths are just such unique and interesting creatures. Being so slow in nature has to have its downsides, but sloths persevere, surviving, not going anywhere (mostly literally), making tiny little baby sloths to continue their slow-building legacy.

They're the best creatures to remind you that it's okay to sometimes take a break and rest, that even if you're not the fastest, that doesn't mean that you're not strong (and totally adorable. We love sloths. Who doesn't love sloths. And today, were appreciating their tiny legacies together.

Cats And Their Strange Fascination With Laundry

Every cat owners knows that the second the laundry comes out, the cat comes out too. Really, it's enough to look away for one second, and once you turn around, your cat is already sitting on the fresh laundry, leaving their lovely lovely fur all over the place. 

Maybe it's because sometimes the laundry is warm, maybe it's because they just wanna spread their scent everywhere, and maybe it's because their tiny little scoundrels who just wanna sit where they aren't supposed to sit. Regardless, they sure do have the strangest fascination with laundry, and much as cat hair on our clothes can be frustrating, seeing them in the laundry pile still kinda makes us laugh. So, enjoy these silly little creatures and their love for laundry, but don't get distracted if you just took your laundry out! Oh, well, too late, kitty is already in there.

Strange Names Given To Pets Twitter Thread Goes Viral

We all have that one (/one hundred) weird name we call our pets. I call my cat "Bellybutton" sometimes, I don't know why or how it happened, but she gets it, the smart kitty. Well, apparently I'm not the only one who gives suuuper strange names to her adorable pets, and twitter has decided to prove it to me. 

It all started with one tweet by @eef_nestor that went viral that stated: "what I call my dog Spencer" followed by some of the most ridiculous names we've ever seen, names that put even my "Bellybutton" to shame. And twitter users jumped in, writing down their own ridiculous pet names with pictures to go with them, and a thread that started with one dog ended up an enormous thread with hundreds of replies that are all endlessly entertaining. 

twitter thread of strange names we give our pets that went viral tweets about dogs cats and a bird thumbnail includes two pictures of a dog and the caption 'Dog - vincent @heycranky Replying to @eef_nestor what i call my spencer (a thread) - speno - SPENCER - hehe puppy'

This adorable meerkat sure is tired! But it seems that it's imperative that it stays awake. As hard as it tries to stay awake, and boy does it try, in the end, sometimes, you just got to accept it. 

This meerkat lost its battle to stay awake and we're totally feeling it. If this isn't a mood, we don't know what it, honestly. If you can manage to make it through this cute video without feeling a wave of the zzz's coming on, kudos to you. We, on the other hand, haven't been so lucky. 

Perhaps it is time for a wee little nap

Miniature Gallery Of Wrinkly Baby Yodas (Sphynx Kittens)

Sphynx cats are interesting breeds. Hairless, but not all of them, wrinkly, and quite alien-like. They have giant eyes and comically large ears, in comparison to their fluffy feline cousins. They are essentially little Yodas. 

There are so many animals that the Sphynx breed is compared to. Most commonly chihuahuas and rodents. Yet, there's also something oddly beautiful about them as well. We know Sphynx cats aren't to everyone's liking but we can't help be appreciate their alien-like beauty. And we especially can't help the cuteness that is Sphynx kittens! 

And due to it being so close to Halloween, what better time than to sprinkle a dose of these unusual cats?

Twitter User Rates Different Fox Species Based On Weirdness (Tweets)

It's strange to think that there are various different fox species out there, and what's weirder is that some of them aren't as classically adorable as the foxes you normally see in the media. 

There are over 37 different fox species around the globe, however, only 12 of those fox species would be considered "true fox types" of the Vulpes genus. Foxes can be found all over the globe, in multiple continents and different regions. From the desert regions to the artic, foxes can be found nearly everywhere. Out of all the foxes in the world, the red fox is considered to be the most common. 

And we're not sure about you but we haven't seen all 37 species of fox in person, and maybe not even online. Some foxes may look a bit stranger than you would expect. One Twitter user decided to take it upon himself to rate that weirdness. 

Twitter user @ColinJCarlson decided to go in-depth and rate various types of foxes, then share those rates with the rest of Twitter. And we're grateful to have such a thoughtful fox rating system in place.
