This Cat Is Going To Be SO Embarrassed When He Wakes Up…

Let’s hope this feline’s friends NEVER see these photos.

Mimo, an adorable tabby cat in Japan, experienced the ultimate feline humiliation this week when his owner covered him in stuffed mice while he was sleeping — something we can only assume is the cat-owner equivalent to the old “draw a penis on your passed-out friend’s face” move in college.

The fact that Mimo is quite a heavy sleeper apparently inspired his owner — identified only as a 22-year-old named Mimoza — to set up these shots, according to REX Shutterstock.

16 Adorable Rescued Pets Before And After Their Adoptions

As the proud owner of a rescued dog, I know all too well what a difference a few days of love, good food, and a comfy puff can do for a scared pet.

While my dog was “just” malnourished, I’ve written about plenty of pups and kittens who saw God knows what in their past lives. But once they’re shown some affection and a good home, their whole demeanor, and hopefully perspective on life, changes.

To prove just that point, check out some of these amazing before and after adoption photos. Get ready for some serious feels.

1. Luna was found starving and covered in mud. Just look at her delight after finding her forever home!

2. Penny was rescued from the county shelter with a slew of medical problems…but that all changed after some trips to the vet and a whole lotta love.

3. Bug was found in the middle of nowhere not long after she gave birth. She was so timid until she went home with her mom.

4. Vitrio was found on the streets severely beaten and incredibly malnourished. Now he’s in a loving home with plenty of furry companions.

5. Lilo didn’t come into her beautiful “erect ears” until she was free of the shelter.

6. When she found Wombat, his rescuer thought he was blind. Luckily, he wasn’t and he’s now living the good life.

7. Poor Lily was forced to fight and lost an ear from it. After six days, she stole her new human’s hearts.

8. Gunny had been at the shelter for more than 100 days when his new owner fell in love with him.

9. An amazing Good Samaritan rescued this stray dog from the streets in Chile.

10. This sweet girl was surrendered with a few other litter mates. After some time in a new home, she clearly found her joy.

11. Matilda was found wandering on the side of the road with mange. A visit to the vet and a little love was all it took to get her back to 100%.

12. Pickles was so scared when he was in the shelter, but now he’s happy as can be!

13. Lea went from scared and grey to fabulous and snowy white!

14. Benny was found on the street with mange and a ton of other health issues. After some time in foster care, the cutie went to a forever home.

15. Kibby’s forever home had no idea that she would go from frail kitten to a fluffy, hyper cat.

16. Taboo was pulled from a kill shelter in the nick of time, and after some training, she’s become quite a lovely lady.

It’s clear that anything is possible with a little love, a ton of treats, and a trip to the vet. I highly recommend opting to adopt rather than shop. Saving one life saves the others who can be taken in after them.

Last Search And Rescue Dog From 9-11 Is Honored By Firefighters

As all pet owners sadly know, dogs simply don’t live long enough. With 9-11 so far behind us, there is only one last search and rescue dog who is alive. But all things must come to an end. Sinceshe was in very poor health,Bretagne’s doctors decided it was best to let her go in comfort. But the firefighters wouldn’t let her leave our world without one last honor.

23 Guilty Pets Who Had Absolutely No Idea You’d Be Home So Soon…

If you’re a pet owner, you’ve probably wondered more than once what your furry ones do while you’re at work…

Are they sleeping away the day, maybe they’re getting into the food, or tearing up your magazines? Short of installing a security camera, we’ll likely never know. That is unless you’re one of these lucky folks who came home and caught their pets knee-deep in destruction.

They just weren’t expecting their parents home so early…and the look of incredible and hilarious guilt on their faces is priceless!

1. “Dinner’s on me, Mom.”

2. “I wasn’t grabbing your wallet. I swear.”

3. He’s not even sorry!

4. Looks like someone’s hungry!

5. Are these guys not getting fed?

6. “Come on in…the water’s perfect!”

7. Oh, Denver!

8. “Ummmmm, it’s not what it looks like.”

9. She’s trying to tell you she needs to use the bathroom.

10. “Oh. You’re home.”

11. “It’s more comfortable this way!”

12. That looks cozy.

13. *Just act natural.*

14. He looks guilty…but the cat? Yeah, he looks dead.

15. You suuuuure you didn’t get into the lipstick?

16. No, see, it’s supposed to go on your lips…not your paws, silly!

17. “There’s definitely nothing dead buried here.”

18. “What? Stacey said she needs cupcakes for her bake sale!”

19. If you’re innocent, why are you hiding?

20. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

21. “You know how much I love sashimi, Mom!”

22. “I thought we could use a little green indoors!”

23. “Dad…DAD! Look what I did!”

In the end, though, it’s just so hard to stay mad at them!

21 Adorable Animals That Are STILL In Food Comas After Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving unless half of those at the table end up on the couch in a deep, jolly, sometimes painful, food coma. The struggle couldn’t be more real to get up and make it to a bed for the night…especially since in a few hours, you’ll eat even more. Because, Thanksgiving!

But us humans aren’t the only ones who get tummies so round and eyelids so heavy from all those yummy sides. No, our pets know just how we feel…

1. After all, they do lay the guilt trips on thick to get some scraps.

2. When this face pops up under the table…it’s impossible to say no.

3. “Please, sir, can I have some more?”

4. Sometimes the coma is so deep, you wake up in dangerous positions.

5. Or with awkward facial expressions…

6. “Make the pain go away.”

7. “I give up!”

8. If you’re lucky, you make it to bed.

9. She feels like garbage, so this is appropriate.

10. Sometimes, you just have to let it all hang out.

11. “There’s no shame in my Thanksgiving game.”

12. “I made it upright again! Do I get a treat for that?”

13. “We’ll make it through this together!” “Get your own bed.”

14. A coma cuddle buddy always makes the trying time easier.

15. It’s a bird…it’s a plane…no, it’s just a ginormous rabbit in a food coma!

16. Puppy’s first Thanksgiving:

17. And don’t be mistaken, they don’t get smarter with age. Food comas hit everyone hard.

18. He saved some stuffing for later…this is him trying to get the last bits off his chin.

19. “WHAT HAVE I DONE?”

20. After a certain period of time, the resemblance is uncanny.

21. “I can barely remember a time when I wasn’t this full…”

It’s okay, guys, I feel you.

Kids Who Grow Up With Dogs Are Less Likely To Develop Asthma

As if their unconditional love, mood-boosting powers and delightfully slobbery kisses weren’t enough, dogs may provide yet another benefit to their human families. According to a new study from Uppsala University in Sweden, children who grow up with dogs have about a 13 percent lower risk of asthma than kids who didn’t.

Researchers analyzed data on more than a million Swedish children in nine different national registries, controlling for parental asthma and socioeconomic status, among other factors. The data covered births between 2001 and 2010 and included details on asthma diagnosis and medication, if any, and information about dog and farm animal ownership.

Exposure to dogs during a baby’s first year was linked to a 13 percent lower risk of asthma in school age children, while farm animal exposure was linked to a 52 percent lower risk for school age children and a 31 percent lower risk among preschool age tots. The study was published in the medical journal JAMA Pediatrics

According to the researchers, previous studies have associated dog exposure with “altered bacterial flora in house dust,” and the fact that mice exposed to this dust have fewer allergic reactions and experience changes in their “gut flora.” But this was the first study to connect such specific dots in humans.

Sweden is a particularly advantageous location for this research because of the country’s organized identification system. Every individual in Sweden has a personal number used to record physician visits and medical prescriptions, along with a host of other data. All of the information is recorded in national databases, which researchers can access for studies after each number is stripped of identifying and personal information about its owner.

Researchers were able to study whether having a parent registered as a dog owner or animal farmer was associated with later diagnosis or medication for childhood asthma because dog ownership registration has been mandated since 2001

“We know that children with established allergy to cats or dogs should avoid them, but our results also indicate that children who grow up with dogs have reduced risks of asthma later in life,” said Karolinska Institutet epidemiologist Catarina Almqvist Malmros, a senior author on the study, in a statement. She noted that the study merely shows a population-level association and shouldn’t be seen as a prescription for individuals quite yet. 

Still, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this study listed on some precocious kid’s campaign to get a family dog
