How To Magically Uncurl A Pig’s Tail…Get Ready To Laugh Out Loud

What’s cuter about a pig — their little oinks or curlicue tails? (Okay, but really…is that even up for debate?)

Yeah, their tails are pretty much the cutest.

But did you know that you can actually straighten them out? Well, you can. Watch and try not to fall over laughing as this guy demonstrates just how to make their wiggly tails go limp.

Okay, let’s see that again!

I’m not going to lie…I’m probably (definitely) going to try this out the next time I find myself at a farm!

A Guy Casually Rode Down The Street On A Bike…With WHAT On His Back?

Listen up, people. Riding a bike with livestock strapped to your back is a totally normal thing to do.

In some countries, at least. While we don’t see much of this hilarious action in the States, people who rely on bicycles in other places around the world know that if they want to move their furry friends, they have to get crafty. A little ingenuity can go a long way, after all, and it’s a special treat when the solution to a pesky problem looks like this.

Just going to work. Nothing to see here.

Nothing says “I have places to be” quite like strapping a goat to your back, am I right?

This is just excessive.

Okay, I’m about to ask my dog if she wants to go for a ride. She’s going to be real confused when we forgo the car.

He Took His Cat To A Dog Show — And What Happened Is Obviously Adorable

How does your cat spend its afternoons? Probably with a good nap, playing with some toys, maybe even tormenting the mail carrier

But for Boomer the Bengal cat, he’d rather spend the day showing off his training. And what better place to do it…than at a dog show!

Boomer’s been taught by a professional trainer to walk around on a leash greeting other animals, but when he does it at a dog show, some might contend that he becomes the life of the party, not the pooches!

That little nose boop that he offers to every new pup is just too adorable!

More dogs and cats need to be BFF.

(Although maybe not all of them.)

Serious shade being thrown by the weenie dog.

Who said dogs and cats don’t get along?

Your heart is going to melt from all of the cuteness!

They Kept Returning Him To The Shelter…When You Hear His Purr, You’ll Fall In Love

Tribble the cat has led a tough life. After three years in his first home, his owner passed away. He was returned to the shelter for a few months before being adopted by a family with four small children. They terrorized him. After three years of abuse, he was back at the shelter once more.

When he was seven, he finally found his forever home — a place that appreciates him and his quirks, especially his incredibly unique purr! Just listen for yourself and you’ll instantly understand why his new family couldn’t help but pick him!

According to Tribble’s new owner, “Tribble was their favourite cat in the shelter. He chirps like a cricket and is super friendly. He was also the ‘test cat’ when introducing new dogs into the shelter. If Tribble was cool with them they were then deemed cat-friendly.”

Today, the old boy is almost nine. Thanks to people like his mom and dad, who wanted to make sure to adopt shelter pets, he gets a (third) chance at a great life!

She Heard Her Baby Crying In The Middle Of A Raging Flood And Stopped At Nothing To Save Her

Over the last few months, floods have been a deadly, though common, occurrence throughout India. Already killing at least 70 people, they’ve proven deadly to man, and if it weren’t for the courage of one mother dog, several puppies would have perished, too.

When floodwaters rose in Chennai, one stray dog got separated from her babies. Watch as she swims through a garbage-infested river in an effort to find and save the pups.

Watching from above, the onlookers no doubt wished they could have helped this mom. But after she helped her first little one, they could tell she had everything under control — according to witnesses she saved three more!

This Adorable Farm In Japan Must Be The Happiest Place On Earth, Judging By The Photos

Some might argue that there are few things cuter than a litter of tiny kittens. Others could contend that a playful mini pony is one of those very things.

Ask us to choose who wins and we’ll be here for a while deliberating. But here’s one way to settle this intense debate…put the two together!

Well, this farm in Saku City, Japan, did just that. If you’re still undecided about if this is, in fact, the cutest thing ever, just watch for yourself…this video is all the proof we need, at least.

This pony is either loving the attention or is just too tired to get up — either way, this is TOO MUCH.

Oh, hey random capybara. This little dude is probably just jealous of all the kitten cuddles going on.

Look at that grin.

Watch the entire fury cuddle session here.

When An Adorable Dog Crashed A Soccer Game, Everyone Fell In Love With Him

Interrupting a soccer game can be serious (and violent) business for both athletes and fans alike.

Thankfully, when the Paulistão championships were interrupted, fights didn’t erupt in the stands. Even though the teams were tied 0-0, when a frightened dog ran onto the field, everyone was on the dog’s side. Learning he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, he ran away from the players and security trying to corral him.

Then suddenly, the Oeste and Capivariano teams, both from São Paulo, Brazil, worked together to help bring this dog to the help he needed. See for yourself, and get ready to smile!

Thanks to Alex Santos of Capivariano, who scooped him up, this adorable dog lived out a dream most soccer fans have: getting carried off the field in celebratory fashion by their favorite player.

A Dog’s Owner Went To Save Her From Freezing Water…Then The Unthinkable Happened

If you own a pet, you know the incredible sacrifices you’re willing to make in order to save them in a dangerous situation. You love your pet so much that you’d do just about anything within your power for them.

Lady the dog found herself in quite a bit of trouble when she was playing outside near some thin ice. Suddenly, the ice broke and she fell through. She was struggling for her life in freezing-cold water when her owner came to the rescue. Then the unthinkable happened…they fell through, too.

Watch their harrowing rescue here.

Thankfully everyone came out alive and well in this situation. I bet that owner is going to keep a more watchful eye on Lady from now on. Hopefully this doesn’t happen again!

This Rescue Dog Makes It Very, Very Clear That Car Rides Aren’t His Thing

If you’ve ever had a car-hating dog, you’ll identify with this video on a spiritual level.

Harvey’s a great guy, but being in the car just isn’t his jam. When his humans try to lure him in, he does what any sensible dog would do and goes totally limp.

The resulting footage is as hilarious as it is endearing, and if there’s anything that you just loathe doing, you’ll understand Harvey’s struggle.

“Come on, Dad!” He’s just not having it, and that’s totally fine, because his protest is absolutely adorable. Let’s just hope that a few pleasant rides will help him change his tune!

He Had To Build An Enclosure For His Tortoise, So He Really Pulled Out All The Stops

Have you ever seen a movie and found yourself wishing you lived in that world after the credits rolled?

Unfortunately for us, adulthood isn’t really conducive to turning our homes into movie-themed paradises. Oliver Turpin, for example, loves “Jurassic Park.” Although he couldn’t very well turn his own home into a scene from this action-packed movie, there was nothing stopping him from creating a miniature version of the set for his tortoise Louie.

What pet wouldn’t love feeling like a big, bad monster from another era? If you have a turtle or a tortoise at home, let the critter play pretend in an enclosure like this one!
