Originally posted 07/29/2015 04:20PM

Billy Elliot had his dad. Kevin Bacon had the Rev. Shaw Moore. Channing Tatum had all those restricting clothes. It seems wherever there are souls aching to dance, there is someone or something trying to hold them back.

In the case of these baby goats, it's Moo the barn cat.

The cat's extra pounds made headlines around the world, and now he's living purr-oof that change is good.

Please take a moment to turn on the Hawaii Five-0 theme song, because this is a tropical caper perfectly suited for Danno and the gang.

On Friday, a Siamese cat found in Hawaii was reunited with his family in Detroit, Michigan, reports KHON2.

Adopt Us! It's Hard to Fur-get Cats Patrick and Woody

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Patrick and Woody, an inseparable pair of felines currently being cared for by the North Country Animal League in Morrisville, Vermont.

Throughout history, there have been many memorable duos, and these cuties are right there with the best of them.

"Like Batman and Robin, Peanut Butter and Jelly or Mac and Cheese, Patrick and Woody are the fearless duo here at the shelter," reads a post on the rescue's Facebook page. "Woody is a little more quiet and reserved [cat] who loves to be scratched under the chin and give you all his attention. Patrick is the crazy, outgoing one of the two."

They may be king of the jungle, but on this particular day on the Serengeti, these lions reacted to insects just like we do (insert GIF of Macaulay Culkin's "aah" face in Home Alone).

Rather than stick around for the pests to nip at them, this pride of lions – 15 of them to be exact – retreated to a sausage tree. Fortunately, their flight was captured on camera for all of us to gawk at.

Just when you thought you'd seen it all – dogs friends with pigs, lizards friends with lambs – a new animal crew comes along and shakes things up.

Well, these three aren't exactly new, but this 2014 video of a crow feeding a cat and a dog deserves a revival (thanks to TheDodo.com for bringing it to our attention).

A mother cat and her five newborn kittens are cooling down after being sealed in a box and abandoned in a hot parking lot.

The helpless felines were – luckily – discovered by Ken Lyons, a volunteer from Ten Lives Club cat rescue in Blasdell, New York, reports WIVB.

Lyons found the box, which was duct-taped shut, in the sunny parking lot without a note. The volunteer immediately freed the cat and her kittens and brought them to Ten Lives Club.
