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."
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.
It seems like every week we have a new favorite Internet fad, but we prefer to think of ourselves more as "up to date on the latest trends" than "flaky." Whatever you want to call us, you have to call this week's obsession cuuuuute.
One of the hashtags recently highlighted by INK361 (a desktop web interface for Instagram) is #weeklyfluff, and, oh, was that ever a good call. What qualifies as #weeklyfluff, you ask? You name something cute and furry, and we say it's a perfect fit.
And we're not the only ones crushing on this stream of cuteness. A quick search of the hashtag reveals over 125,000 photos! Will you be adding any of your favorite puppy pics or feline photos to the stream? Let us know in the comments!
We’re certain that F. Scott Fitzgerald would totally approve of this feline interpretation of his famous novel. Really, who could say no to Scat Cat?
Here at Crittr, we consider ourselves pretty savvy when it comes to all things interwebz. Some fads, particularly those involving Grumpy Cat memes and goats screaming in Taylor Swift songs, we love. Others... not so much. We're looking at you, Harlem Shake.
Cat beards, however, definitely fall into our "love" column.
Creating one of these magical photographs is easy: Just hold your cat in front of you, tilting his head upwards so that his nose lines up with yours. Then take a selfie or enlist a friend (or a professional cat wrangler) to snap the shot for you.
Voilá! Now you have feline facial hair.
Check out the Cat Beard Tumblr for inspiration, and let us know if you can persuade your cat to participate in this trend. We're already on board! (And haven't gotten scratched... yet.)
Epic’s Amanda Seyfried isn’t the only one in her household with acting chops.
“I got him cast in his first movie," Seyfried said. "I can't really talk about his character, but it's going to shoot in September. I'm really excited about it. He's really excited about it."
The proud stage mom admitted that DeGeneres was right when she described her relationship with Finn as “borderline.”
"Oh, yeah. I know," Seyfried confessed. "He's with me right now. He's actually backstage. I really can't go many places without him."
The talk show host showed some of Seyfried’s photos of her and her pup from her own Twitter feed on the big screen behind them, and presented the actress with a gift: a larger-than-life framed photo of Seyfried and Finn by a roaring fire that the actress had tweeted as a joke.
A pair of goofy slugs, hummingbirds, evil-looking crows, a mouse and a giant Pug (yes, giant) are just a few of the many animals we tallied up from watching the trailer for the new computer-animated fantasy flick Epic. Really, what more could an animal lover ask for in a movie?
How about a cast of awesome celebrities? Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Steven Tyler, Beyoncé, Aziz Ansari and Christoph Waltz are some of the actors (and rock stars) who lend their voices to the film.
Oh, and let's not forget that Pitbull is also in the movie. No, not that Pit Bull! We’re talking about Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull the rapper.
So who’s planning to see Epic this Memorial Day weekend? Tell us what you think of the movie in the comments.
"I'm happy as a Corgi in a sweater wearing booties walking kindly through the leaves in the middle of the fall / I'm peachy as a puppy sitting soundly in a lady's lap watching all the birds fly this-a'way and that."
Best song lyrics ever written? We think so.
We've loved seeing all the touching tributes to the city of Boston since the Marathon attack last month, and here's yet another to warm our hearts: Kevin Spacey's new puppy.
The House of Cards actor tweeted a photo over the weekend of his new little lady, adopted from the North Shore Animal League. "New member of my family. Her name is Boston in honor of the city," he added.
Spacey flew to Boston after the bombings to visit and pose for photos with doctors, nurses and the first responders who helped at the finish line. "Real heroes," he wrote.
Soon, Boston the puppy will join Spacey's other dog, Mini, who he said is "15 & still acting like a puppy. Be a week or so before she can meet Boston. I'm definitely in dog heaven!"
We have to admit that we hadn't heard of Rochester-based metal band Sirens & Sailors until this music video came out... but we're really glad we've discovered them, because this video is mind-blowing (and possibly a little ear-splitting).
If you can't bring yourself to watch all of the "Birthday Parties for Puppies" video, at least skip to 4:47 for a pretty sweet message.
