1 golden retriever + 8 birds + 1 hamster = 1 big happy animal family!

Like humans, dogs have different personalities and temperaments. Some dogs are playful, some are shy. Some bark or growl at every stranger they see, yet others are extremely caring and can even be trusted to watch over little humans.

Biologically, dogs are predators and they are equipped with strong teeth, muscles and instinct to go after smaller animals, but some domesticated dogs have such warm personalities they get along just fine with cats, rabbits, or even tinier creatures such as hamsters and birds. Bob the golden retriever is one of those gentle giants, and he’s been winning the hearts of Instagrammers with adorable pictures of him snuggling up to his little pals. Check them out!

Japanese man races his “tortoise and hare,” cuteness ensues

Live-action remakes of established cartoon and comic franchises are favored projects by studios looking for a solid return on their investments. Appealing to our sense of nostalgia they can pull in a good chunk of change even if they turn out crappy, something which, sadly, happens a lot.

However, on video originally posted to Niconico and YouTube by Masaki Hata reminds us that the great remakes need to be fun first and slick big-budget productions second. His version of a classic Aesop fable, which he’s titled Battle of Fate Settled at Last: Tortoise vs Hare in Japan, has won over many with its unique blend of cuteness and surprisingly good production value.

Use this new Japanese pad to keep your cat in one spot with the power of magic circles!

Last year, the Internet went gaga over the discovery that, for reasons that remain a mystery to nearly everyone, (some) cats, when presented with a circle on the floor, will enter said circle and just sit there. In what is probably the most effective way to make the notoriously free-spirited animals “stay,” these cat circles, which are called “neko hoihoi” in Japan, appeared in numerous videos, photos, and tweets online. From tape to hula hoops to dirty clothes, the cat-catching circles can, seemingly, be made of anything!

But now you no longer need to actually make a cat circle — instead you can buy an adorable little tatami reed flooring mat from a Kyoto company. Give your room a little class and trap your cat all at the same time! It’s probably easier than trying to use a computer when your adorable kitty wants attention.
