When it comes to decorating your home, sometimes hanging a picture or painting the wall a different hue just won't cut it. Happily, wallpaper is back in a big way, and stores like Anthropologie are featuring charming animal-themed designs like this dog and cat wallpaper.
Created by England-based duo Eliza Fricker and Steve Baines, these two wallpaper designs are clever and, for the discerning animal lover, quite inclusive with many popular and well-loved breeds featured. The dog version showcases Poodles, Cocker Spaniels, Pugs, Frenchies, Chow Chows and more, while we spy Persians, Siamese, and Tabbies among the cats.
We can see this being an adorable addition to a child's room, although, if we're being honest, we've already taken measurements for the accent wall here in the office. What? Is it any secret we really, really, really love animals?
This feline has no shame.
While pretending to nap alongside an unsuspecting (and super trusting) dog, she slowly swipes the food out of his bowl when he’s not looking.
Right under his nose!
If you can’t trust your friends with your food, who can you trust?
Only Henri could pull off being so sad and so funny all at once.
Our favorite black-and-white bastion of ennui is back with his seventh short film, in which the poor kitty is left with — gasp — a caretaker. As you may have guessed, this guy is not up to the task of taking care of a fine feline like Henri.
Le Chat Noir (and his person/filmmaker, Will Braden) debuted their latest masterpiece on Wednesday night at the second annual International Cat Video Festival at the Walker Art Center in Minnesota. You may recall that last year, Henri’s famed Paw de Deux was selected as the best cat video on the Internet.
Below, check out Henri’s latest — dubbed “The Cat Is Sat” — and decide for yourself whether stardom has gone to his head.
The right app can mean the difference between waiting in your vet's lobby with a quiet, smiling child engrossed in your phone or tablet instead of one that's fussy, bored, and unhappy. The hard part is figuring out which of all the apps out there are the best for your kid, but we've done the legwork for you!
This winner of the 2013 Apple Design Award at the Worldwide Developers Conference is an app-must for any animal lover who has an iPad. The photography and graphics are beautiful, and while it contains a vast amount of information, it is easy to navigate and never overwhelming. Users have the option to explore the habitats, threats, and educational facts for a variety of animals, or browse videos and photographs. And the origami representations of each animal that transition from one section of the app to the next are engaging and lovely. Whether you’re big or small, we challenge you to not get lost in this app.
Age: All ages
If you caught the first Cat-Friend vs Dog-Friend video (warning: there is one tiny part that's not entirely suitable for work or young eyes) when it went viral late last year, you'll understand our elation at learning that the hilarious duo released a follow-up video.
One note: you might catch yourself laughing out loud. Loudly out loud.
We all know that when humans are crabby, a little caffeine can sometimes help.
So could Grumpy Cat’s new line of coffee drinks be the way to turn her perpetual frown upside down?
Grumpy Cat Grumppuccino — which has the tag line “it’s awfully good” — will be available starting in September, and will be offered in coffee, mocha or vanilla flavors, reported Today.
This is hardly the first product featuring everyone’s favorite disgruntled kitty, whose real name is Tardar Sauce.
And if that’s not enough grumpiness for you, you’ll soon be able to curl up with Grumpy’s book — and she recently scored a movie deal.
Grumpy Cat’s people haven’t revealed the price of her coffee yet, but if you follow @drinkgrumpycat on Twitter, you can get a promo code for 10 percent off the drink when it’s available for pre-sale.
Really, who could say no to a kitten?
That’s one reason Ryan Bentley decided to involve a rescue kitty in his marriage proposal to Emily Beckett, his girlfriend of three years.
“I just thought it would be a good idea to have something memorable with the proposal that we’d be able to keep and love,” Bentley told ABC News. “Plus, I had to make sure she was going to say yes.”
With the help of his girlfriend’s mom, Bentley searched local shelters to find the perfect kitten for Emily. Finally, he chose one from a shelter in North Carolina called Brother Wolf.
On May 18, after dinner at the restaurant where they had their first date, the two returned to Beckett’s apartment — where Beckett’s mom had delivered the tiny gray cat while they were out.
When they got home, Beckett said she was so surprised and excited about the kitten that she didn’t even notice the message dangling from his shiny new collar.
“Did you see his collar? I named him for you,” Bentley said. Beckett read the tag, which said, “Emily, Will You Marry Me?”
Naturally, she said yes. And they’ve given the kitten the perfect name: Amore.
This is a much more cuddly Adams Family than the one we saw on TV.
Mandy Moore and her husband, Ryan Adams, adopted two new cats from the Los Angeles Animal Rescue last weekend.
"Welcome Addison and Maddie to the Adams Family!" the singer and actress Tweeted on Sunday, along with a photo of their kitties. "[Thank You] @LAAnimalRescue for allowing us to give them a home."
Grab the ketchup but hold the relish: It’s National Hot Dog Month!
Sure you could celebrate by chowing down on frankfurters every day in July, but we think it would be more fun (and better for you) if you mark this important month by honoring the Dachshund, the original wiener dog.
There's only one way to truly honor the hottest hot dog dog (try saying that five times fast): You need dress your Doxie up as a hot dog. Wayfair.com’s Hot Diggity Dog costume will do just the trick.
Place your pup between the costume’s plump, poppy seed buns and place the zig-zag of ketchup or mustard on his back and voilà, you’ve got a hot dog that look good enough to eat — er, take lots of adorable photos of and post on our Crittr Facebook page. Enjoy!
June 21 may have marked the summer solstice, but it also marked a big occasion in the world of Internet cats. Lil Bub the permakitten turned 2!
For her birthday, she has a gift for you: the video below.
Yes, it’s largely a promotion of her new web-based series, Lil Bub’s Big Show, and her book, Lil Bub’s Lil Book. But it’s also a wonderfully crazy visit from our pal Bub — and her cake.
