The Daily Treat: Two-Headed Turtle Is Named Thor and Loki

Originally posted 11/13/2013 01:35PM

They don't have Chris Hemsworth's golden locks or Tom Hiddleston's smooth moves, but this Thor and Loki combo are still quite the package deal. The turtle duo, named after the popular comic book characters, are inseparable – literally.

The Daily Treat: The Hunger Games, as Performed by Cats

Originally posted 11/11/2013 02:00PM

There's less than two weeks to go before the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but if you're one of the three people on Earth who hasn't yet seen the saga's first hit film, released in 2012, here's a quick way to get you caught up to speed. And it involves cats.

That's right. While we normally wouldn't advocate skipping any film that stars both Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, there is something to be said for the way a feline can portray Cat-niss that Jennifer Lawrence just can't replicate (no offense to the Katniss Everdeen actress).

We think you should sit down for this one.

Corgis may soon make their way onto the endangered breed list, according to the Britain Kennel Club's breeders's association. There were only 241 Pembroke Welsh Corgis registered in Britain this year, AFP reports. That number needs to be at 300 to stay off the vulnerable breeds list.

Corgis: the unofficial mascot of the Internet, the Queen's favorite kind of pooch, the stuff our dreams are made of. Together, we can avoid a Corgi a-paw-calypse. Just follow these seven steps:

The Daily Treat: This Dog Dressed as a Chia Pet Wins Halloween

Forget the candy, parties and costumes – all we needed to see this Halloween is Bogart the maltipoo in this uh-mazing costume.

We can't get enough of this photo Allyson Busby (@MadeWithLove88) submitted to our weekly Twitter contest of her rescue pup dressed as the decorative planter.

"I don't think Bogart is too thrilled about being a Chia Pet," Busby wrote, and we can't say we disagree. Poor Bogart looks ready to leaves ... er ... leave.

The Best Pics from N.Y.C.'s Halloween Dog Parade

The Daily Treat: The Best Pics from the Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade

Originally posted 10/29/2013 02:50PM

Who let the dogs out – dressed like that?

That would be some of New York City's most creative dog owners with a vision and a simple mission: to have the best doggy Halloween costume. EVER.

The 23rd annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade included some of the funniest doggy get-ups we've seen to date, including a mysterious Barksy – a nod to British graffiti artist Banksy – and a furry pumpkin squeezed into a Starbucks cup (reminding us to imbibe the Pumpkin Spice Latte before they're taken off the menu for the season).

Here's a list of our favorite pooches, though we think all of the participants proved to be Best in Show.

The Daily Treat: Pug Plays the Part of Miley's Wrecking Ball for Halloween

Originally posted 10/25/2013 02:00PM

It's a phenomenon we can't quite explain, but seems to still be going strong: pets behaving like Miley Cyrus.

And the latest entrant into that elite group is Tottie the pug – albeit with a twist. Instead of dressing as the "We Can't Stop" singer herself, Tottie is dressed as her most famous accessory of late: her wrecking ball. Playing the part of Cyrus in this scenario? A nude Barbie doll.

The Daily Treat: Pour Yourself a Pugkin Spice Latte

Originally posted 10/17/2013 01:35PM

By now, midway through October, you've probably tasted your first pumpkin spice latte of the season (although that's more than we can say for this unhappy lion). The drink is as synonymous with the start of fall as sweaters, leaves and other things we learned from rom-coms.

But now, there's a way for you to enjoy the season with your pet.

Behold: the pugskin spice latte. Twitter user @singalittleflat crafted the ultimate (and caffeinated!) Halloween costume for her furry buddy, who dons the signature Starbucks lid as a cap and a cardboard recreation of its cup holder around its waist.

A Starbucks creation that's D.I.Y. and calorie-free? We'll take a venti.

When you're meeting new people for the first time, it can be hard to make a good impression. Not that this dog would understand – he doesn't have that problem.

The Daily Treat: You'd Smile Like This Baby Bearcat if You Smelled Like Popcorn, Too

Originally posted 09/04/2013 01:30PM

If you've ever smiled really, really big when you walked into a movie theater and it had nothing to do with what you were there to see, then this bearcat totally gets you.

He's loving the smell of popcorn, too.

Bearcats, a.k.a. binturongs, naturally emit a scent reminiscent of buttery popcorn from their glands. And that's enough to bring a smile to Oliver Wolf's face.

The 2-month-old Staten Island Zoo resident knows no Oscar nominee or Ryan Gosling-lead rom-com can top his natural scent, which is used by the mammals to communicate.

Monkey love!

It was a case of instant attraction when a little girl visited a zoo and came face-to-face with a baby gorilla.

In the YouTube video the blond-haired cutie can be seen aping the gorilla's moves as it walks by and slaps the large windows.
