      Hawaiian Monk Seals!

      Like many sea-dwelling mammals, Hawaiian monk seals are finding it nearly impossible to live in and around an ocean that has been raped, pillaged, polluted, and generally used as a landfill-cum-toilet by humanity since the halcyon days of the Industrial R…

      Syrian Hamsters

      These furry bags of joy love desert climates and stuffing as much food into their cheek pouches as possible—in fact, their Arabic name roughly translates as "Mr. Saddlebags." Not joking.

      Wiener Dog Races!

      In August, Montreal held its fifth annual wiener-dog race day. Prizes were awarded for the fastest runner, best costume, and bobbing for wieners—that's like bobbing for apples but with dogs and cocktail wieners, and it's as amazing as it sounds.

      Kuppy-Cats!

      The room went silent as the scientist slowly opened the cage door and gently removed a two-week-old specimen of his own invention, plainly stating, "Behold the final frontier of cute: the kuppy-cat."

      Baby Camels

      We admit, we're not huge fans of camels. At first glance, they look like disabled, lumpy horses (and horses are quite frightening to begin with, unless they're miniature). But when we recently

      Baby Wombat Orphans

      We asked our associate editor Harry what he thought about wombats, and he said, "An ugly animal--like a bat but dumber." Then we whipped out this photo and he was paralyzed in an alternating

      Red Squirrel Orphans

      You know how squirrels stand all hunched over a nut, tightly grasping it with their tiny claws and then shoving it into their mouths so their cheeks get all puffed? Everyone loves that.

      Pygmy Shetland Ponies

      Don't let their size fool you, pygmy Shetland ponies like to pig out big time. Carrots, apples, grass—they love it all, and will do just about anything to get food in their mouths. Running through barbed wire or risking a zap from an electric fence? Doesn…

      Badgers

      A badger cub is just like an annoying little brother who's constantly getting into trouble, usually while covered head to toe in bits of food and dirt. You can't help but love them, even if they smell a little like poop. These short-legged omn…

      American Curl Kittens

      Procurl Harem (clever, eh?) is the name of Caroline Scott's cat-breeding company. Caroline has spent the past 25 years surrounded by bouncing, furry, heart-melting American Curl kittens. We tried to interview her about these peculiar cats with daint…

      Dogs With Eyebrows

      For our third installment of The Cute Show Page! we wanted to feature dogs with eyebrows drawn or stuck on them. Why? Because pups look ten times more intense and 50 times more adorable than you ever thought possible when this happens. They instantly beco…
