If there's one thing a cat knows how to do, it's improvise.
Take boxes for instance. Whenever the FedEx guy leaves one at the door, your cat sees another opportunity for a good day's sleep. So when this cat needed a pillow for its head, the feline simply fetched one from the fruit bowl.
When it comes to using produce as a pillow, however, we do believe this kitty could have chosen a little more wisely. A hand of bananas might be slightly more ergonomic.
Blind dates are always nerve-wracking, even for animals. Carla Zanoni of New York City was worried that her four-year-old pit bull terrier, Getrude, would reject her newly adopted kitten named Earnestine.
Instead, the pets surprised Zanoni by quickly becoming enamored with one another. The video above shows the adorable behavior that has become normal for this animal odd couple. Apparently, Earnestine and Gertrude often spend their days cuddling together and exchanging sweet, interspecies kisses.
Sometimes you put a pillow over your head. Sometimes you hold your ears. But no matter what you do, you can still hear the penetrating buzz of that horrible appliance – the alarm clock.
Vizsla the dog despises it with a passion too, and in this video, as that beep, well, beeps, she howls like she's giving birth in a display of complete displeasure.
Here are some good reasons to wake a sleeping cat: a tsunami. A fire. Taylor Swift getting a new cat and naming it after her favorite TV character.
These things are important.
But waking a cat up for no other reason than to capture its out-of-this-world shriek on camera, well, that's not helping anyone.
Where is Scully?
Two FBI agents are needed to crack the bizarre case of Mulder the cat, who has figured out how to open doors.
Even the feline's owner believes that paranormal forces are at play here. "You scare me," says the cameraman as the cat fully turns a square doorknob and saunters through the doorway. Your eyes will surely widen even more when kitty is still able to open the door after an obstacle is placed in front of it (seriously!).
We're not professionals, but in our opinion this is an open and shut case.
Fur-get lullabies. What all parents of young babies knead is a kitty like this one.
This magically calming feline helps this tired baby drift to sleep like no lullaby we've ever heard. As the baby's eyes begin to close, the cat starts kneading the child's blanket, and as if a graceful fairy were sprinkling pixie dust, sweet slumber is achieved.
Talk about a welcome party!
1-year-old rat terrier Kip hopes to show his new sister, a tabby kitten named Lizzie, just how happy he is to have a new playmate. But his approach is just a little too intense for the newest member of the family.
The pup shows off his moves by racing around in circles on the couch and jumping back and forth – but being careful not to hurt the tiny kitten. As for Lizzie? While at first she seems curious about her new older brother (that his owners refer to as "Dorky"), she very quickly retreats to higher ground on the couch and gives a look that seems to say, "What is the deal with this nut case?"
In movies, showers can be very scary places.
Jack Nicholson in The Shining. Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. Janet Leigh in Psycho. Those horrifying images are filed away in a cabinet in our brains forever. So it's no wonder that dogs – including Turner, from Turner & Hooch – have an aversion to the cells that spew water from a faucet on high.
But here's a brave gal who's living it up like Julia Roberts in the tub in Pretty Woman – she's happy as a clam!
Here's what "working like a dog" really looks like.
A tiny cigarette store in Japan is receiving international attention thanks to one panting, four-pawed staff member. The owners of Musashi-Koganei, a hole-in-the-wall tobacco shop, have "employed" a Shiba Inu to work the front of the house.
