I am not going to knock support animals, but is this a safe space to talk about many of them wreak havoc on flights?
In recent years, the feminist slogan t-shirt has been more popular than it has in decades and is also a perfect symbol of the defanging number that capitalist girl-power has done on the idea of feminism (again). It has caused me, personally, disproportionate distress over commodification and intent and philosophy and…
Earlier this summer, Lena Dunham’s Sphynx cat, Gia Marie, died suddenly. Now, she has lost yet another pet—Bowie, a 13-year-old Yorkie. Dunham announced Bowie’s death on Instagram:
How can you be a better person? What in your life needs to change in order to improve? When contemplative self-searching nets zero results, it’s best to look outward for inspiration. My search for personal inspiration ends here with Emma, a four-year-old pug from Hermsdorf who ran her way to victory.
Circuses are so last century, and animal cracker brand Barnum’s Animals has finally taken notice.
Southwest Airlines is updating their animal policy, and it looks like the horse girls can claim victory. Effective September 17, emotional support animals will be limited to cats and dogs. So that emotional support bunny? Yeah, it’s staying at home, boo. Your emotional support peacock? Don’t even think about it. Same…
Here’s a list of cat names that sound good because they are good. This is indisputable.
Earlier this month, I was tired. So I took a nap in a woman’s house in Oregon. Had no idea she’d make such a big deal about it, but then I realized: I’m a mountain lion. The homeowner, Lauren Taylor, posted her account of what happened on Facebook, but there are two sides to every story. Here’s mine.
It’s a lot of responsibility for a cat to do anything in addition to just being a cat, so thank goodness for term limits.
Just an important update on Fiona, a hippo learning that life is but a fool’s errand.
I try to avoid listening to Donald Trump’s voice, but on a Wednesday in mid-May, I watched the video of a statement he made during a roundtable discussion about California’s sanctuary state policies. His exact words were:
The best thing about America’s Got Talent is that the show stretches the definition of the word “talent” to its very limits, making for very entertaining television. It’s summer, there’s nothing on TV, and this is how I came to learn about the Savitsky Cats, a roving collective of circus animals from the Ukraine who…
Are you having a bad day? A bad week? I can empathize, but please quit complaining. Last week, the executive director of Nebraska Wildlife Rehab spent an hour untangling the tails of six baby squirrels who got trapped in what the Omaha World-Herald described vividly as a “six-headed animal cluster.” Life is hard, but…
New Yorkers have this oddly persistent reputation for being jaded, but perhaps it’s more accurate to say that certain items get tuned out due to the overwhelming amount of shit there is to notice in the city, and the anxious acuity of its inhabitants. Such a condition would be fertile ground for misunderstandings and…
Though some might proclaim me as such, I don’t consider myself a fashion icon. Not exactly. I enjoy wearing nice things. And shopping as well. I like colors. I like sneakers. I professionally stunt. On occasion. Some might call me an influencer. Okay. I guess I’m fly. Here’s my latest.
Officials at Glacier National Park in Montana have set up two webcams aimed at a black bear who seems unsure of whether or not it wants to keep hibernating. The bear is chillin’ in a cozy den located in the trunk of a cottonwood tree more than 50 feet above the forest floor.
Skincare: So hot right now that even Fiona the hippo is doing it and—more excitingly—sharing her routine with the world. Teach us how to get that slimy glow and we’ll be forever grateful, Fi!
There’s a lot of pressure on Sudan, one of the last three northern white rhinos in the world, and the last of the males.
There is a new sloth at the Pittsburgh National Aviary, and her name is Vivien Leigh. She is five months old and two-and-a-half pounds, and is very “scent-oriented.” The similarities between us are difficult to ignore.
A little space, please?
