40+ Times Cats Didn’t Want To Be In Your Stupid Selfies And The Result Was Hilarious

Cats don’t own smartphones, mainly because touch screens aren’t easy to use when you have paws. But if they did they’d probably use them to crank call dogs, ignore calls from their humans, and Google the best strategies for world domination. What they wouldn’t use them for is taking selfies, because as you can see from this funny list of photo (un)friendly felines compiled by Bored Panda, cats hate selfies.

Super cute birb peeps with excitement when he meets his stuffed-animal twin

TwitterFacebook

Kids can get pretty excited when their parents bring home a new toy from the store, and so can our wonderful birb friends.

Alex the cockatiel was extremely excited to get a stuffed animal toy (that looks exactly like him) to play with and love forever and ever. The cockatiel’s owner presented Alex with the plush twin, and he could barely contain his peeps of excitement when he saw his new buddy.

Since these two are just getting acquainted, Alex didn’t seem completely enthusiastic to have plush-Alex invade his personal space, but we’re sure they’ll be inseparable in no time. Read more…

Whiny husky will absolutely NOT give up his shotgun seat

TwitterFacebook

When someone calls shotgun, you have to obey the rules and give them that seat. That’s like Drivers Ed 101.

Those are the rules that Zeus the husky clearly understands, so it makes sense that he didn’t want to give up the front seat when his owner told him to move on out.

Zeus may be called the “stubborn husky” by his owner, but this just looks like a good boy who likes to play by the rules. So he’s. not. moving. Read more…

Poor hamster has a surprisingly terrible time trying to work on its fitness

TwitterFacebook

Hamster running wheels typically only come with enough room for one hamster. 

But one excited hamster thought it was a good idea to take the wheel from another hamster that had already been using it. Well, this hamster surely learned a good lesson. The first hamster reclaimed its wheel and sent the wheel-stealing hamster spinning.

The pet shop video was first shared by @_missmiranduh on Twitter last week, whose brother sent her the video.

If anyone’s going to buy these little hamsters, they should probably go to separate families. Read more…

Look out, Easter Bunny, this adorable Goldendoodle could put you out of a job

TwitterFacebook

Hey, Easter Bunny: you’ve been put on notice.

Murphy the Goldendoodle is gunning for your gig as floppy-eared distributor of colorful eggs and springtime cheer.

The brown-haired Goldendoodle — part golden retriever, part poodle — recently transformed a plastic cone collar into an Easter basket, replete with rainbow-colored filler and plastic eggs (that were hopefully not filled with chocolate candy).

Murphy donned the cone collar on other occasions too, using its plastic perimeter to create a popcorn bowl, or a martini glass.
