Somebody deserves free pizza for life.
Because this idea – the one we're sure some people laughed off when it was blurted out in a brainstorming session, about cats starring in Pizza Hut Japan's new ad campaign – is now the stuff of legend.
In one of the new spots available on YouTube (and there are many more should you need a break today!), a group of seemingly annoyed cats sit at a table wearing Pizza Hut hats, waiting for their pizza delivery.
They have their differences, but they snuggle through them.
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.
There are lots of things to be sad about these days (example: We're not having Ryan Gosling's baby) but Pixie the cat isn't bothered by any of them.
This 2-year-old feline, who resides in the U.K., has the eyes of a girl who just spent hours crying over a broken heart. But she's really as happy as a mid-nap cat – meaning her looks are purely for the benefit of others, like us.
"She's happy most of the time," the Persian cat's owner, Sophie Batt, says in an interview with the U.K. Daily Mail. "She's always playing or eating."
We've said it before and we'll say it again: We love our jobs.
But in order to keep them, we have to bring you things like this video of adorable puppies playing with toys in the PEOPLE studio.
The only reason we're still employed is because there is actually a reason for all this cuteness: Animal Planet's Emmy-nominated series, Too Cute, has somehow managed to get even cuter in its second season, with Too Cute! Pint-Sized, a 12-episode, half-hour series that begins Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT (two back-to-back episodes air each week).
A cat named Gizmo has only minor injuries after a nine-story fall at a Manhattan apartment building.
New York's Daily News reports Gizmo fell off a 12th-floor terrace on Tuesday. He crashed onto a third-floor landing and became wedged between a skylight and a wall.
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.
What's shark for 'Say Cheese'? Andy Casagrande should know.
The filmmaker's work has been featured in 27 Shark Week specials – this year alone he took part in Air Jaws: Fin of Fury, Lair of the Mega Shark, Zombie Sharks and last but not least, Great White Matrix, which airs Aug. 16.
With all of this experience under his camera strap, we choose to believe him when he tells EW.com that sharks do smile for his camera.
Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Mallory, a 3-year-old Lab mix who has been with the Eleventh Hour Rescue of Rockaway, New Jersey, for more than one year.
Even though it's only temporary, Mallory is making the most of her loving foster home before she finds that place to spend forever. "She has playful bursts of energy and likes to play tug of war and chase after balls," says foster mom Tammi Green-Strelkoff. "When she's finished playing, she'll curl up next to you or find a cozy spot next to you and just hang out for some quiet time."
