This Cat Really, Really Doesn’t Want His Owner To Work Anymore

I’ve probably spent the last 20 minutes or so procrastinating by browsing the internet, watching funny cat videos, and talking to my coworkers in the office chat.

If you have to work on a computer all day (and let’s be real, most of us do), you know how tempting it can be to lose yourself in the web’s many distractions. But some distractions are way cuter than Facebook and Twitter.

The struggle is so real if you work from home or your office allows pets, because fur babies love monopolizing our attention. Take this cat, for example. The impatient feline really isn’t pleased that Dad works all the time, so he goes to great lengths to distract him at every turn.

This employee clearly has to deal with some precious problems at work every day, but I don’t think he minds.

You’ll Run Straight To The Flea Market When You See What He Did With Broken Chairs

Have you ever watched “Flea Market Flip” on HGTV for hours on end and thought, “You know what? I can do that!” Same.

And that bolstered sense of DIY prowess usually sends me on the hunt for something janky at the nearest flea market that I think I can bring back to life with skills that I most definitely don’t have. And you know how that usually ends? With a pile of broken furniture and a few hopes and dreams stuffed underneath.

Fortunately, this crafter from Into the Dirtshop is about as skilled as it gets. He had three broken chairs sitting around, so he decided to turn them into a quirky bench. If that sounds like it’d be your jam, check out his process!

Here’s what he started with. Not too impressive, right?

But when he saw them sitting next to each other, he knew that they could come together and create the most unique bench of all time. First, he cut out the seat.

After that, he created a support frame that’d eventually join with the chairs.

He then took off the front legs of each chair and butted the back legs up against a board to even them out.

He used screws and wood glue to attach the seat frame.

When he added the seat itself, it really started coming together!

The crafter then went ahead and reattached the front legs to the frame.

For added comfort, he created an armrest. To enhance the bench’s whimsical vibe, he cut a swirled design with a bandsaw.

Here’s the (almost) finished product! Adorable, right?

For full details, check out this video or read Into the Dirtshop’s original post!

He Thought He Was Meeting Spider-Man, But Really, This Kid Was Going To See Another Hero

This little boy is Noah — and he loves Spider-Man.

So, when he went outside to play and saw Spider-Man, he was thrilled! He ran up to the superhero and gave him a huge hug. But then…Spider-Man took off his mask.

Spider-Man was great, but DAD? That’s even better!

Spider-Man (a.k.a. “Jason”) flew home from serving in Afghanistan to surprise his son and wife. Their daughter Kali was just born, and he wanted to give the entire family a huge treat.

This Dog Knows Who He Should And Should NOT Trust…So Smart!

My dog goes on high alert whenever anyone walks by the front door. Even if it’s someone she knows and loves…she just doesn’t trust anyone until they’re inside and she’s given them a thorough once-over.

It’s great for protection, but it can also be super annoying after awhile.

This dog, on the other hand, knows exactly who to trust — and precisely who he should never trust. Just watch as his dad tells him which treat is from which person…

What a smart pooch! I know my girl would walk straight up to anyone, even the dog catcher, if they had a tasty treat in their hands. She’s not trusting…unless they have food for her.

When You See Why He’s Adding Flour To Ice Cream, You’ll Definitely Want To Try It

You know what’s a gift to the universe? Ice cream. You know what else we should all feel blessed to eat? Bread. While neither of these foods are great for the waistline, you can’t really be sad while you’re indulging in either one of them.

If you’re anything like me and believe that dreams are made of bread and ice cream, you’re going to want to sit down. That’s because this chef figured out how turn ice cream into bread (with the help of a little flour, of course). If that sounds like something that could drastically improve your quality of life, learn how to make it in the video below!

I don’t even know if I can live the same life anymore. This guy just used one gift from above to create another. For more recipes like this, be sure to check out his YouTube channel!

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.
