The next time someone tries to tell you rats aren't intelligent, just show them this video of a rat running her homemade obstacle course. Pepper, a rescue rat owned by YouTuber Abby Roeser, is able to scale books, pull down a drawbridge when she has no other path and even scoot herself along on a makeshift vehicle with a string.
Roeser has a collection of videos on her channel showcasing the amazing abilities she's been able to teach her rats. Some of the videos show the little guys and gals playing basketball, retrieving tissue paper and opening and closing the doors to their homes.
First, there was a Grumpy Cat, a.k.a. Tartar Sauce, a cat with a face so surly you couldn't help but love her. Now, there is Grumpy Dog, a five-month old puggle named Earl who is here to claim his place as grumpiest(-looking) dog.
But he isn't actually mad! His irritated expression is caused by his underbite and adorable wrinkles. Plus, he is a second-generation puggle, meaning both of his parents were mixed breeds. Despite his perpetual pout, Earl's owner, Derek Bloomfield, says he is a very laid-back pup and loves to cuddle.
Not many grown men play hide-and-go-seek, but when your best friend is a curious little kitten, the game is hard to resist.
It's tough being a pug puppy: There are so many new things to learn, so many balls to chase and SO MANY naps to take.
A video posted to YouTube yesterday by ignoramusky shows six pugs lined up side by side for a cozy snooze fest — and it squeezes so much cuteness into 87 seconds that we can hardly take it.
A baby owl will get out of the road when she's good and ready, police found recently.
Standing in the middle of a road last week in Boulder, Colorado, the baby owl stood her ground when a police deputy approached and asked about her activities. The painfully adorable interview was caught on camera.
"Hey. What's up?" the deputy asks, to which the juvenile owl replies, "Chirp ... click, click."
After determining the owl wasn't too shady, and seemed perfectly healthy, questioning ceased and the juvenile flew safely away.
