We just love the fact that, according to the woman who ordered this graduation cake (which should have had a little cap, not... well, you see where the mistake was made), the bakery didn't even question it — other than to give the woman a funny look. "Little cat on her head. Got it."
Can you imagine the conversation in the back as they drew it? We can!
"Did they say what kind of cat?"
"Little, that's all."
"Not calico? Or, like, Maru?"
"Nope, just little."
The spectacled owlet’s parents have raised six chicks at the Phoenix Zoo, but because both Mom and Dad are older, their keepers weren’t sure their eggs would still be fertile.
But on Feb. 10, the one egg belonging to a 20-year-old mom and her 15-year-old mate hatched, and keepers could hear tiny noises coming from the nest box.
They didn’t manage to catch a glimpse of the little white ball of fluff until late in March because its protective parents would fly at their keepers’ heads — talons extended — if they even tried to clean their display.
The wide-eyed chick was spotted sitting in the opening to its nest box on April 13, and the next day it fledged, trying out different perches in the exhibit.
Spectacled owls are native to Mexico, Central and South America. The owlet’s gender is still unknown, but will be determined at its first official exam.
As we head into the warm summer months, most people crave fresh, in-season-fruit to help combat the heat. Juicy watermelon is a refreshing treat that can definitely get a little messy.
But that doesn't stop this fruit-loving feline, Pancake, from digging in. This Exotic Shorthair makes eating watermelon look especially cute, as he chows down on a juicy slice for himself. Not only does Pancake fight the heat of summer — he is a crime-fighting superhero as well!
Once affectionately dubbed ALF (for Alien Life Form) by keepers at the U.K.’s Linton Zoo, a rare albino red-necked wallaby has blossomed into a beauty.
Lacking pigment, the joey, whom we caught a glimpse of in Mom’s pouch in March, has all white fur and pink eyes.
Now the baby is almost as big as mom Kylie — but still tries to squeeze into her pouch for some snuggle time.
Red-necked wallabies are usually gray and brown, like Kylie and dad Jason.
Seacrest, out. Capuchin monkey — in.
Actress Julianne Hough, who recently made headlines with her split from American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, shared a photo of herself with a monkey on her shoulder earlier this week on Instagram.
“I found my soul mate last night!” she wrote with the image. “Thanks @mariamenounos78 for throwing such a fun birthday party!”
Extra host Maria Menounos, who celebrated her 35th birthday at her Los Angeles home, had quite a menagerie at her party, including a parrot and a snake, according to People.
But the monkey seemed to be the biggest party animal; in addition to posing with Hough, he had his photo taken with stars including Hough’s brother, Derek, Kris Jenner and Khloé Kardashian.
