Cat Annihilates Paper Army in Explosive Showdown

Tensions between local paper dolls and a ginger cat have escalated to a “military conflict,” according to officials at the State Department.

"Diplomatic talks in the living room have disintegrated," said Leonard Anderson of the Office of Press Relations in a briefing. "It’s unclear at this stage which party provoked the attack, but early reports show clear evidence the cat has decimated the paper army."

A citizen journalist uploaded this footage to YouTube, but be warned: It can be graphic at times.

The State Department has made it clear the U.S. does not plan to intervene in the conflict without further investigation by UN inspectors on the ground. We will update this story we receive more information.

Watch This Paralyzed Puppy Get a New Lease on Life

This is the story of Ricky Bobby, a 10-year-old dachshund who is partially paralyzed and doesn’t have use of his hind legs. When Humane Society rescuers found the pup, he had been dragging his non-working legs around on a cement floor, which had left him covered in open sores, callouses and suffering from muscle atrophy on his underside.

He, and other rescued animals, were sent to CareFirst Animal Hospital in North Carolina to be treated for health issues caused by neglect. That’s where he met Megan, a vet tech who helped treat the dog, patch him up and built him a wheelchair using PVC pipe and a baby stroller. Fast forward eight months and Ricky Bobby is now as active as a puppy, chasing his adoptive mom around on his new set of wheels.

Watch the video above to learn more about Ricky Bobby’s inspiring story, and then consider donating to the Humane Society of the United States to help animal rescue efforts all over America.

Cat Excels at Knocking Stuff Over

Give Burrito the cat something — anything, a water bottle, a roll of tape, a clementine, and he’ll knock it to the ground with expert proficiency.

"It’s a skill he’s been working on for the past year," said Caleb Durrey, Burrito’s strength and agility coach. "He’s nearly perfected his form."

According to Durrey, the cat is an extremely hard worker. He spends hours in the gym each day and reviewing tape to work on his craft. 

Thus far, Burrito has been unable to find anyone to employ him as a stuff knocker overer, but he remains hopeful.

Just Say No to Puppy Mills This Holiday Season

We like to joke around a lot at The Fluffington Post, but we’re all kinds of serious when it comes to treating animals well.  That’s why we’re happy to join the ASPCA in calling for an end to puppy mills.

If you’re planning to add a puppy to your family this holiday season, please consider adoption instead of purchasing one through a pet store.  And if you’re planning to buy gifts for the pets already in your life, please try not to purchase anything from pet stores that sell puppies from puppy mills.

Americans plan to spend more than $2.5 billion on pets this holiday season, according to recently released poll.  Unfortunately, more than half of pet shoppers say they would consider shopping at a store that also sells puppies — meaning a big chunk of that $2.5 billion could directly or indirectly support the puppy mill industry.

When you’re out shopping for your pets this month, make sure you’re shopping at stores that don’t use puppy mills.  And please like or reblog this post to help us spread this important message.

Cat Duo Elevates Snuggling to an Art Form

An unnamed brother and sister cat duo from Japan have released a video that has set the snuggling world on fire. Experts are saying this might be the best snuggling demonstration in history.

"This is snuggling in its purest form," said Ramon Wilson, a snuggling expert from Fordham University. "They are showing a mastery of the craft that is beyond anything I’ve seen. This is easily the best 21 seconds of snuggles on YouTube."

The video, which has now been viewed over 9,000 times, is starting to make its way around academic circles. 

"I’m already figuring out how to rearrange my syllabus so I can teach this in class," said Amy Carrozzi, who teaches advanced snuggling at Radcliffe College. "Snugglers like this come along once in a generation. If you’re lucky.”

Though attempts have been made to identify the two cats in the video, no one has yet been able to successfully track them down.
