Best Bro Cats High Fiving People

If you ever had any doubt in your mind about how awesome cats are, that doubt is about to be gone. You may think that dogs make the bestest of all best bros, but these cats say na-ah. They know exactly how to bro it up with their bros, and they high five those bros to prove it. That's right.

"Thanks, dude," is what you really want to say after getting a high five from your cat. "I know you both just left your precious scent on me AND that you're playful AND that you're my best bro, bro." Then, later, when you're tired and cuddling together under the blankets: "Hey, bro, do you wanna hold hands?"

Man Builds Squirrel Bar Complete With 7 Varieties Of Nuts On Tap

OK, this is adorable. 

Michael Dutko, an Ohio woodworker, has just created the cutest and coolest squirrel bar we've ever seen. "The Nutty Bar" features seven different types of nuts named after beers: Cashew Dunkel, Peanut Pilsner, Almond Ale, Walnut Stout, Sunflower Saison, Pecan Porter and Pistachio Pale Ale.

We're not even squirrels and we would like to attend this bar! 

Dutko explained to CNN how he thought of the awesome project, "The whole reason I even started to make this is because my neighbor bird watches with her daughter and told me all of the squirrels keep getting in her way. I didn't even tell her what I was going to do, I just built it and put it back there and when she saw it, she just started cracking up."

Not only is there the bar, but quirky signs bathroom signs that read, "Nuts" and "No Nuts." How fun is that? 

The overall process took Dutko 8 hours to complete and measures to be about 25in wide and 16in tall. After sharing a video of the process on YouTube, Dutko became flooded with users who requested to purchase the bar. He immediately went to go get his idea patented and now planning on launching a business doing what he loves!  

"It's surreal to me that I was able to make such an impact by doing something so little with something I love so much. I'm so amazed. People have been so kind and positive. And my kids definitely love it too, they're always watching the squirrels stuff their faces with nuts and they think it's just so cute."

Welcome To The Dark Side: Animal Edition

All these animals only have one thing in common... besides being animals, of course, they all look as if they've turned to the dark side. And we gotta say, the dark side looks pretty darn badass. Maybe we'll transition, too. 

Whether it's due to melanistic or partially melanistic, or just having unusual striking (and slightly demonic) features, these animals are flat out awesome and we want to join their crew.

Zebra Foal Beauties In Their Striped Glory

Zebras are gorgeous creatures. With those hypnotic stripes, mohawk, and long-eyelashes -- they're definitely the raddest animals around.

And what could be better than zebra photos? Pictures of zebra foals, that's what! 

However, foals are pretty well-developed at birth, and already born with their stripes so to tell the difference between an adult and baby is most due to their size and youthful appearance. Doesn't matter too much to us, we love them all. 

Oh, and ready to feel totally lame? Did you know newborn zebras will already begin to walk within 20 minutes of its birth and run within an hour? Sounds like a superior animal to us.

Cats Who Are Ready For Battle (21 Pics)

"Send in the catalry!" Get it? It's like "cavalry," but with cats? ... I'll see myself out. 

We have no idea where these cat owners have found such warrior armor but we won't lie -- we're impressed. And let's be honest with ourselves, cats in armor are way cooler than human we've ever seen in armor. Sorry, that's a fact. 

We often see cats dress in cosplay, which is always adorable. But only dressed as warriors? These cats are bad*ss.

Stray Dog Gets A Home, Job, And Badge From Hyundai Showroom In Brazil

What a good boy! 

We love it when we heart a story of a stray animal getting a furrever home -- and job

Meet Tuscan Prime, the new "pawfessional consultant" of a Hyundai showroom in Brazil! The staff noticed him earlier this year, a stray that would constantly hang around the showroom. The staff didn't ignore the stray, instead, they gave him love and attention. And after one particularly rainy night, the manager, Emerson Mariano, decided to adopt the dog and named him Tuscan Prime. 

After his adoption, Mariano took him to the vet for all the necessary vaccinations. 

Initially, the showroom took him in just to give him refuge, but it turns out that he's one heck of a salesman! With Tuscan's charm and interaction with the customers, the dealership saw no choice but to give credit where it was due. Thus, earning Tuscan Prime a promotion and his very own ID badge! Tuscan had officially become the showroom's mascot! 

In an interview with Top Motors Brazil, Mariano mentions that "that many customers returned to the store even after having purchased a car just to say hi to the dog and give him gifts."

And according to Mariano, Tuscan is even expected to star in a national advertisement campaign for Hyundai! 

Way to go, Tuscan! You can now follow Tuscan Prime on Instagram

Giant Animal Sculptures Made Of Excess Rice Straw

Northern Japan is known for its wealth of rice that produces a rich harvest each Fall. And after that rice is harvested, there's a huge amount of rice straw that is leftover called "wara."

The Japanese people are also known to not waste anything so that excess wara was reused in plenty of ways: roofs, fertilizer, livestock feed, and historically used for a variety of goods that have been since replaced with modern advances. 

One area decided to do something different with the excess rice straw. In the region's capital city, Niigata, they have used the rice straw to create giant and incredible animal sculptures. The Wara Art Festival has been an annual event for the past decade!
