Boys With Facial Hair (In Honor Of The End Of No-Shave November)

No-Shave November has come and gone, and it's time to honor the animal finalists who have impressed us most with their majestic stache. 

If you're wonder what 'No-Shave November' is, it's to help raise awareness of cancer by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. If you want to make a last minute donation -- it's not too late!

Pets That Don't Want Our Food, They Just Want To Look At It.. Closely

And maybe even touch it... a bit. But never eat, heavens no. What would even make you think such an outrageous thing?

Insulting.

And if you do happen to give your pet a piece, or all of your food, they will only eat it because you obviously won't and it would be a shame for food to go to waste. So yeah, they'll eat but only because they have to.

Artist Creates Animal Sculptures From Trash To Draw Attention To Waste Production

And he is successfully getting that message across! Portuguese artist, Artur Bordalo, has created an art series, 'Big Trash Animals,' that has been so successful in achieving his goals in drawing attention to waste production locally that he's now going global! 

From the USA to Estonia and Tahiti. Bordalo scavenges his materials from waste that was dumped in the area, which, sadly, has proven to be less than difficult. And from that trash, he creates his magnificent sculptures.

In Bordalo's own words, "I belong to a generation that is extremely consumerist, materialist and greedy. With the production of things at its highest, the production of "waste" and unused objects is also at its highest. "Waste" is quoted because of its abstract definition: "one man's trash is another man's treasure". I create, recreate, assemble and develop ideas with end-of-life material and try to relate it to sustainability, ecological and social awareness."

See some of his work below! You can also check out his website and follow on Instagram

1 'Murder Peet' Cats Are Our New Favorite Thing

What are peets? Peets are those fuzzy, adorable toe-bean filled paws we can't get enough of! 

What are murder peets? Mostly those fuzzy, adorable toe-bean filled paws we can't get enough of! But, on a wildcat. Or, a domestic cat. 

And what is 1 murder peet? Mostly those fuzzy, adorable toe-bean filled paws we can't get enough of! But, instead of two dangerous peets, it's just one. 

The popular Facebook 'THIS CAT IS C H O N K Y' user Stephenie Renfro Hays‎, shared a hilarious pic of her cat offering 1 murder peet, and asking other users if they accept this form of payment? Literally everyone said yes, because how could you deny such a precious creature? However, many users accepted and offered 1 murder peet of their own, in exchange. 

Thus, beginning the new era of 1 murder peet!

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Willow, The Beautiful Cat

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to @willowthebeautifulcat!

Willow came into Lori's life unexpectedly. Lori is a pre-kindergarten teacher who works with children with special needs, and one day two of her students made a discovery, a tiny kitten, all alone, outside the medical foster home.

Lori was walking to her car when she noticed the stray kitten had been following her, then she noticed her unique face. As Lori describes it on her Instagram, this kitten was "born with a fuzzy heart-shaped nose."

Lori took the poor flea-ridden kitten to the vet, "The vet said she had a chromosomal abnormality like Down syndrome," Lori explained to MeowAF. "She said if I took her to a shelter they'd kill her because she wasn't 'pretty enough.' "

Lori decided to adopt her and named her Willow, after the street where they first met.
