We thought Taylor Swift's friendships with Lorde, Karlie Kloss and every other it girl ever were cute.
But no matter how many slumber parties Swift throws – no matter how many cookies they bake, or what colors they paint their fingernails – it's going to be hard to top what happened when a horse met a cat.
Naturally, said horse and cat became best friends. (Watch the cuddly evidence in the video above.)
Police in Massachusetts responding to reports of an intruder in a woman's home quickly quacked the case.
A North Reading woman called police Saturday from her upstairs bedroom to report that she heard loud banging noises downstairs and feared someone had broken into her home.
Officers who responded found no sign of a break-in.
Every day is Halloween when you're an adorable hedgehog.
Meet Marutaro: He's got a whole lot of spines, even more Twitter followers (45,000 and counting!) and an endless supply of dress-up options.
We assume Marutaro's owner is pretty crafty: the mask-like cutouts Marutaro rocks have made the hedgehog an Internet star. And judging by his looks so far – from Pikachu to a duck – it's easy to see why.
Rock-a-bye, bulldog, on the treetop – but this one just won't stop!
It's a meow-sterpiece!
A Siamese cat decorated with ornate flowers, hearts and rhinestones took home – or, we assume, sat in disgust with – the top prize at Monday's Feline Fantasy extreme grooming contest in East Rutherford, N.J.
The rescue kitty's far-out fur design didn't come easily. Professional groomer Angela Kumpe painstakingly cut and dyed the cat's coat after drawing the pattern, best described as a feline fleur-de-lis, on her back with a marker. (See the final product in the video above.)
Of all the unnatural animal hybrids we can think of, this is perhaps the cutest: A farmer in Ireland's County Kildare has come into possession of a rare "geep" – that's half goat, half sheep.
The baby geep is the result of a randy goat sowing its wild oats among Patrick Murphy's herd of sheep. Assuming the animals couldn't mate, he let the forbidden love run its course.
In March, Murphy received the fruits of his mistake: a furry bundle of joy, which he showed off to Ireland's Farmers Journal.
Murphy told the Irish Times that he knew immediately the hybrid was not a normal baby sheep: "He's fast like a deer. You'd have to put him in a pen to catch him."
As Miley Cyrus mourns the death of her dog Floyd, she's found herself a cutie who's happy to lend a paw.
The singer, 21, took to Twitter on Friday to introduce fans to Moonie, a new doggy addition from her mother, Tish.
"My mama knew my heart was broken & this morning I woke up to Moonie kisses," she wrote, adding, "No one could ever replace my baby Floyd but this precious angel is lendin me some fur to cry on along with my other babies."
