Sometimes, a stiff drink is the only answer. Even if you're a cat.
When you're done aimlessly dissecting Taylor Swift's latest hit for hints about her exes – pro tip: You're better off focusing on the confession she rearranged her furniture for a dance party – redirect your attention to the true loves of her life.
It's Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month and we'll be introducing you to extraordinary canines who need homes throughout October. Today, meet Ricky, a 10-month-old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix from the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
This adorable pup is the unofficial chairman of the center's welcome committee. A staff favorite, Ricky sits in the laps of every volunteer and visitor, and befriends every new canine roommate with affection or a tail wag.
Happy, playful and cuddly are some of the best ways to describe Ricky – so why hasn't he found his forever yet? Nobody knows.
"This is one of those question marks we see from time to time," says adoption services manager Adele Murillo. "Every now and again we'll get a wonderful dog who doesn't whine or bark for attention but just kind of waits his turn. It's almost as though his sweet personality gets him overlooked. He's really a love and he's going to make someone a very happy adopter."
If home is where your heart is, then Cleo the cat definitely belongs with her owner Nancy Cowen.
Several weeks ago, the fluffy feline was separated from Cowen when the elderly woman was moved from her home in Westcott, England, into the Bramley House Residential Home in the same town.
Somehow the cat, who was left in the care of a neighbor, found her way to the nursing home – where she had never been before – presumably in an attempt to find her beloved owner.
Bramley House employee Laura Costello told the Dorking and Leatherhead Advertiser, which first reported the sweet story, "About two weeks after Nancy moved in, this cat just started turning up and sleeping on the benches outside the home. It was very strange."
A New York boy and his cat, a principal and her dog – and lasers.
They all came together in teenager Draven Rodriguez's senior portrait, which ended up with him holding his cat, Mr. Bigglesworth, and Schenectady High School principal Diane Wilkinson holding her Chihuahua, Vivienne.
The 16-year-old had originally wanted his senior yearbook portrait to show him holding his cat, with lasers in the background. He posted the photo on the Internet, and it went viral.
Bill Murray warned us about cats and dogs living together in Ghostbusters, but now felines have taken it a step further. Kitties are currently spending their time cavorting with donkeys.
That's right, YouTube user Johnny Bomblast recently caught an orange kitten snuggling with a beast of burden on his trip to Lamu, Kenya.
It's the dark underbelly of the cat filming industry that nobody wants to talk about.
Well, we're not afraid to bring it to the forefront here, with this video of a cat owner completely eating it whilst filming her feline.
It's time people realized that the art of capturing cats on video can be hairy – especially when you're walking backward with a camera phone in your hand, like the star of this video. As the camerawoman gets footage of her kitty kneading away on a cat scratcher, she attempts to get a better glimpse – and that's where things go wrong.
