Talk about living your best life!
When you are lazy, every single task, and we mean every. single. task. is a challenge. This cat wants the water, and by God it will get it. Just not in the conventional way we're all used to seeing.
"Hey, we are not lazy, we are conserving energy!" - Cats, probably.
In the very words of Lil Bub's owners, "On the morning of Sunday, December 1st 2019 we lost the purest, kindest and most magical living force on our planet. BUB was cheerful and full of love laying in our bed with us Saturday night, but unexpectedly passed away peacefully in her sleep.. I have always been fully transparent about BUB's health, and it was no secret that she was battling a persistent and aggressive bone infection. Even knowing this, we weren't expecting her to pass so soon or so abruptly without warning. I truly believe that she willingly made the decision to leave her failing body so that our family would not have to make that difficult decision ourselves.
It is impossible to put into words the profound effect that BUB has had on my life, on the lives of thousands of homeless pets, and on the lives of those of you that have cared for her as if she were your own family. She taught me everything that I know about unconditional love, she brought my wife Stacy and I together, she's the reason we have our beautiful children Rosco and Lula, and she has been a constant source of warmth and love in our lives for the past 8 years. To say that our family is devastated would be an understatement.
But most importantly, BUB has made a huge difference in the world of animal welfare, and in the lives of millions of people worldwide. She has literally saved thousands of lives (both pets and humans), she started the first national fund for special needs pets, she was the subject of groundbreaking genetic and biological research, she's helped raise over $700,000 for animals in need, and has spread a message of determination, positivity, and perseverance to people all over the world. And even though my heart is absolutely crushed by her graceful departure from planet Earth, I know that her sprit, magic, and overwhelming energy are still with us, reminding us every day to be better.
Dearest BUB, I will never forget your generosity, your limitless supply of love, or your uncanny ability to bring so much magic and joy to the world. I am forever honored and humbled that you chose me as your caretaker. Please visit all of us in our dreams often. GOOD JOB BUB."
We love you, Lil Bub.
Matthew B. and his cat, Ashes, often traveled together travel together in the comfort of his 18-wheeler. Then, one unfortunately truck stop in Ohio, Ashes accidentally slipped out of the truck, got spooked and ran for the brush.
Matthew was devastated. He searched and searched for Ashes with no luck. He had to continue forth on his route but Matthew re-arranged his routes over the next few months so he could return to that same truck spot and search for Ashes.
Unbeknownst to Matthew at that time, Ashes was found by a women, Kimberly T., who had been moving from the West Coast to New York. She made a pit stop at the very small truck stop and noticed a thin gray cat emerging from the brush. It was 13 degrees outside and Kimberly told Lollypop, "He was trying to not put his feet down on the ground, it was so cold."
She decided to take Ashes (who she funnily enough named "Smokey") with her to New York and to the Lollypop Farm.
The Lollypop Farm scanned for a microchip and discovered his owner had him registered under a Texas address that was over 1,465 miles away!
Matthew was finally reunited with Ashes.
Another story that is the perfect reminder on how important it is to get your beloved pets micro-chipped.

The holiday season is upon us! It's is officially December and people are starting to put up their trees and decorate! However, any cat owner knows this is no easy task and more than luckily, some damage will be done.
Jackson Galaxy has created this video with helpful tips for all cat owners who want a ...less destructive Christmas year.
He also added some really helpful tips in the video's description that we've shared below:
"* When it comes to candles, they need to be out of reach of cats. Cats tip over candles and start fires. Cats burn themselves on candles. Make sure they are wall mounted or a place where cats just cant get to them. Same goes for incense.
* Wires: Cats get into Xmas trees and will sometimes chew the wires for the lights. You can treat the wires with substances like "Bitter Apple" - also use any of my suggestions for keeping them away from the tree in general OR don't use electric lights. Also there are products like LUME where you can feed electric cords through them from the tree to the outlet and your cats wont be able to chew through it."
Wishing you all a happy and safe holiday season, everyone!
"One of us! One of us!"
A newly mom cat and her kittens (all black and white), have welcomed an orphaned oddball into their litter. Not too far off with the rest of the kitten's color palette, but this orphan is a completely different animal species... a skunk, to be exact.
But, love is blind and we're so happy this orphaned skunk found a loving pack to call home.
YouTuber, OldManStino, currently has a mini pack that he calls family! A German Shepherd, Beck, and an Orange Tabby, Bleu.
Now, there's a new member of the herd -- Ziggy! But how will Beck and Bleu reaction to the newest pack member?
OldManStino wrote in the description bio, "Beck was excited this time around! Bleu was not happy at first but slowly warmed up to Ziggy."
YouTuber, EverXFun, created a giant water-bottle maze to find out which one of his kittens will figure it out first! Will it be the male cat or the female?
Who do you think will take home the gold?
In the end, we don't really care who ends this mini-battle of smarts, we just really love seeing kittens doing cute things. Thanks for the fun video EverXFun!

The weather is starting to get quite chilly, so it's time to whip out the futons and snuggle up under blankets!
Just like Maru, the cat, is doing in this video. We take it that it must be really warm and comfy in that futon... any chance we can squeeze in and cuddle with you?

Look out! This is one angry bunny you don't want to mess with!
In a hilarious video uploaded by Bini the Bunny, this adorable bunny is angry and looking to destroy (but honestly, it just makes Bini even cuter)!
His owner, decided to hang a sign above his bed, letting the world know that Bini is angry today and to please not touch him. But we guess Bini didn't like that...
What a beautiful reunion!
Sasha, a Portland long-haired black cat, has been reunited with her hooman, Viktor Usov, after being missing for five years! The lost feline was found 1,300 miles away in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Usov originally adopted Sasha from the Oregon Humane Society about six years ago. Back then, Sasha was sick, had a distended belly protuding from his underside and had a constant runny nose. Usov didn't mind any of that, there was a click between the two, upon first meeting.
And luckily, after adopting Sasha, Usov's mom applied some acupuncture treatments that cleared up Sasha's health issues quickly.
Usov told OregonLive, "He turned into one of the friendliest cats I've ever met."
Sasha would follow Usov on walks, with their puppy, Tara. One day, Sasha went out for a walk and just didn't return.
"We waited a week or so," Usov said. "But when we didn't get a call from the Humane Society and no one returned him, we figured a coyote got him. We were upset but we moved on."
Fast forward to just this last week, Usov gets a phone call from an animal shelter in New Mexico -- Sasha was mircochipped! At first, Usov didn't believe it was the same cat, but when the shelter described Sasha's friendly demeanor he just knew.
According to the shelter in New Mexico, Sasha was particularly happy to be picked-up but appeared healthy and well-fed!
But how did Sasha get all the way to New Mexico? Usov has a theory:
"He went on a grand American adventure," Usov told KGW. "He stopped by the Grand Canyon, Crater Lake, he saw the monuments, all the national parks, definitely Redwood Forest."
Congratulations on the happy reunion, Usov and Sasha! And just a friendly reminder to all the pet owners out there to please microchip your pets!
