Piglets are so adorable, if you don't think so -- we're sure this GIF compilation will change your mind.
Guaranteed to make you squeal with delight!
Tokyo's numerous pet cafes have become a refuge for stressed animal lovers. Obvious candidates like cats and dogs have their own dedicated cafes, but you can also find birds, hedgehogs, and even reptiles. But this time, we would like to update you there's a whole new breed of animal cafe. It's Tokyo's first micro-pig cafe and it's called Mipig.
For 800 yen you can hang out with the tiny snufflers for half an hour. Many ran around sniffing patrons and looking for treats, while others made themselves comfy on the laps of customers, even nuzzling up for a little sleep.
Animal welfare is always a massive concern when planning to visit a pet cafe, but Mipig works to alleviate the most common worries. There's a reservation system in place, limiting the number of people allowed in at one time so that the pigs don't get overwhelmed. Mostly the customers sit on the floor at their assigned table, and the pigs can move around to wherever they want. Check out some of the cute photos on their official Instagram page.
Animals are a gift and blessing for humankind. From funny pets, to wild animal bloopers, they offer an endless amount of laughs, often unintentionally at their expense. But with nearly countless hours of material to sift through to find which ones are worth our notice, and which need to go the way of the dodo, you wonder what some of the best ones are. So for your viewing pleasure and hilarity, we have collected some of the best animal gifs around to satisfy your cravings.
Picture this: you're walking down the aisle in an airplane and when you find your seat, there's a turkey sitting next to it. Or a pig. Or a monkey. It sounds like a comedy routine, but it isn't. In the past few years, there has been an unprecedented rise in people having 'emotional support animals', particularly when traveling on airplanes. While any step towards improving mental health is applauded, there have been many incidents involving emotional support animals on airplanes that really don't belong there. We can't blame these untrained animals for acting the way animals act, but we can question the laws that allow them on board. With new regulations from the US Department of Transport, things are about to change. We discuss these changes below, and whether they are for the better or the worse.
If you've been online in the past two days, you might have noticed that the internet is erupting with memes, jokes, information, and even an interactive game, about 30-50 feral hogs. What the heck is going on, you might ask? Well, what started out as a serious question by a Twitter user amidst America's seemingly never-ending gun reform debate is nonetheless a genuine question that we must address. The famous question goes as follows: "Legit question for rural Americans - How do I kill the 30-50 feral hogs that run into my yard within 3-5 mins while my small kids play?". While the specificity of this question has driven many to hilarity, feral pigs in America are no laughing matter. They can wreak irreversible damage on ecosystems, endanger native plant and animal species, and can even harm or kill humans. Here's what the deal is with feral pigs in America.
More specifically, two Kune-Kune pigs, named Tim and Faith! The piglets will be joining on their Friendly Kingdom ranch on Washington State's San Juan Island, where the happy couple currently cares for goats, sheep, and a cow.
However, not everyone is happy about the actors choice of words when it comes to saving the animals. Check out some of the comments below and share your thoughts!
When Kristin Hartness adopted Ziggy five years ago, she thought she was the proud new owner of a tiny, teacup pig. Teacup pigs are typically advertised as pets that will remain miniature-size, and will never reach the full size of a regular pig. Hartness quickly learned otherwise. Ziggy is now full-grown, weighing in at over 250 pounds! Despite Ziggy's unexpected size, Hartness never thought twice about keeping her lovable pig. Ziggy and Hartness's adventures began in St. John's in the Caribbean and have spanned across the United States. Ziggy has quickly become quite the seasoned traveler, and the world has been taking notice of his story. Hartness and her fiancé now travel from state to state in an RV with Ziggy to spread awareness about pet adoption. Scroll through below to see Hartness and Ziggy's incredible adventures.
