This little tyke taking on a sumo wrestler is the cutest thing you’ll see today 【Video】

Sumo wrestlers. They’re big, strong, and pretty intimidating. Even though they might be quick to smile and friendlier than your average bear, we definitely would not want to step in the ring with them.

But this little kid doesn’t know the meaning of intimidation! Which is fair, because he’s only four, but it turns out he’s also fearless, and takes on this mountain of a sumo wrestler with the enthusiasm of a hungry wolverine!

This cat and old guy pair go motorcycling together, are incredibly adorable

Listen guys, it’s only Wednesday and many of you may be having a rough week. Maybe your boss yelled at you for using the wrong PowerPoint template at your lame office job. Maybe your boyfriend or girlfriend made you sleep on the couch because you forgot your anniversary. Maybe you’re disappointed in yourself because you gave up your dreams of becoming the world’s greatest bassoonist to work a more lucrative but soul-sucking job as an insurance salesman and why didn’t you just stick with the bassoon you could have been somebody you coward why.

But don’t fret, down-on-your-luck readers. We’ve got the perfect thing to bring a smile to your face and get you through to the weekend: Presenting Ryunosuke, the house cat that loves to go motorcycle riding on his owner’s shoulders!

Enter the sandman: sleeping kitty chooses the strangest food for a pillow

After learning last week that cats dictate our (and the CIA’s) actions, we as their human underlings must do everything we can to keep our feline masters as happy as possible. Since cats sleep for around 14 hours a day, there is nothing more important than maintaining the areas where they choose to rest their weary heads.

Is it soft and delicate fabricates that keep them purring? Or perhaps it’s something a little… spicier?

Totoro and No-Face come out to play in the rain on Ghibli umbrellas that change patterns when wet

Unless you’ve got a bitter aversion to the cold, odds are you’ll find early summer to be the least pleasant time of year in Japan, weather-wise. Not only is it hot and muggy, it’s also the country’s rainiest period, and just about any time you’re stepping outside you’ll want to carry an umbrella with you.

Thankfully, there’s a way to make the rainy season a little more enjoyable, as a new line of Studio Ghibli-themed umbrellas means a summer squall is just the beginning of a Totoro hunt as the beloved forest spirit magically appears on the umbrella’s fabric when it gets wet.

Video trailer brings us a city overrun with terrifying Miffy zombies

Miffy, the adorable fluffy white rabbit from Holland, has several reasons to be angry. Not only has she been to court to kill off Cathy, the doppelgänger bunny character created by Sanrio, she also has to put up with people confusing her for Hello Kitty, and then to top it all off, her creator, Dick Bruna, announced his retirement last year. Sometimes, it’s all too much for a bunny to bear.

So it’s not hard to imagine that Miffy would one day be out for blood, especially if she were to become a flesh-eating zombie. And when you multiply one zombified Miffy with an army of hundreds, things become genuinely terrifying. Take a look at the bunny apocalypse that’s threatening to take down the citizens of Hong Kong and cheer for the group that fights them after the break.

Eww, what’s that on your ear?! “Kimo-kawa” bug jewellery’s totally in right now!

Kimo-kawa“, or kimo-kawaii, is a particularly interesting little Japanese oxymoronic phrase which means “gross-cute“. And it perfectly sums up these totally disgusting stag beetle earrings from wacky retailer Village Vanguard…

Adorable little monsters steal child’s seat, helpless father simply posts photos to Twitter

When monsters strike, we like to think we’d all suit up and do battle with their adorable furry faces, but we reckon it’s probably safe to say that quite a few of us would be worthless in a fight, especially against a vicious onslaught of cute like what this father faced. Seeing the seat he’d bought his child overrun by these kawaii demons, he did what any sane person would do: Snapped photos and tweeted them for the whole Internet to see!

Police dogs in China better at lining up for chow than we are

Dogs are already known for their discipline. At least when humans are around to make sure they don’t eat garbage and lick their genitals all day long, they’re pretty good about following the rules their human masters set out before them – Marmaduke notwithstanding.

But perhaps no other type of dog is as disciplined and well-trained as the police dog. Police forces and militaries all over the world utilize these highly trained pups, not only for drug, bomb and suspicious butt sniffing, but also for search-and-rescue operations and even mine clearing. This type of highly specialized work unsurprisingly requires highly trained dogs, and police dog training is a fair bit more rigorous than getting Fido to roll over on command.

We had no idea, though, that this rigorous training regimen apparently even extends to doggy mealtime…

Totoro, is that you? Stick-on googly eyes plus kitty equals hours of fuzzy fun!

Generally, cats have a pretty cushy life, don’t they? Lounging around, napping, and being fed tasty treats by their adoring owners. So it’s only fair that they repay us a little bit by allowing us to have some fun with them every now and then!

From improvised egyptian makeovers to scrunchie cat collars, there are all sorts of amusing ways to spruce up your cat for a photo op. But did you know that you can turn Kitty into Totoro using just a pair of googly eyes?

“Hamster drill” is at least twice as cute as it sounds, Japanese pet-lovers teach us

You learn something new everyday. And today I learnt a new Japanese word, or at least an English-sourced bit of slang Japanese pet-lovers sometimes toss around.

You know that ferocious shaking of an animal’s head when they get wet and try to dry themselves off, or when they’re trying to shake out an itch? Well, sometimes in Japanese, people call it “doriru” (the Japanese corrupted pronunciation of “drill”) as it mimics the rapid rotational movement of an electric drill.

Adorable cat inadvertently teaches us Japanese【Video】

If you haven’t noticed by the number of cute cat videos or the famous character Hello Kitty, a lot of Japanese people kind of like cats. In fact, they like cats so much, that many common words and phrases have developed using the word “cat” in them, such as nekoze, which means “hunchback” or “bent back,” (neko is “cat”, ze is “back”).

One Japanese cat owner found their kitty sitting in the exact posture that brought this word about in the first place, but the cat was set straight again by quite a surprising (read: adorable) event.

Okaasan, you shouldn’t have! Japanese netizens show the contents of their wackiest care packages

In Japan, millions of people flock to the capital each year for school or work from all over the country. As a result, a lot of people live away from their parents and relatives, who remain back in one’s jikka, or family home in their hometown.

One way people stay in touch is through exchanging care packages. It’s a great way for parents to show their love for their offspring by providing little treats and mementoes of home. But sometimes, parents just go a little nutty, pouring all their love into random boxes of stuff which serve to amuse and baffle their unsuspecting recipients…
