Originally posted 01/22/2014 10:00AM

Oh c'mon, not again.

Mere weeks after most of the country battled through the polar vortex, which itself followed winter storm Hercules, another serious set of snowfall has struck the East Coast thanks to winter storm Janus.

Freezing temperatures and slippery sidewalks are here again ... not to mention cold paws and frosty fur.

Originally posted 01/17/2014 02:30PM

Just when the world thought twerking and "Gangnam Style" had surpassed their saturation point, along comes Nathan.

This hairless pup – rocking a Miley Cyrus crop – is a resident at Bald is Beautiful Dog Rescue in South Carolina, and is also the non-profit's top rump-shaker. To get a little extra warmth, Nathan has developed a cardio regimen of intense wiggling – and the Internet has taken notice.

The Daily Treat: These Dogs Are Out to Ruin Your Day

Originally posted 01/14/2014 06:30PM

It's time to come clean. Here at PEOPLE Pets, there's a certain animal kingdom stereotype we've sometimes helped promulgate: That cats are jerks.

But in light of new evidence, we've decided to amend our stance. Turns out, cats aren't the only ones who can sometimes make life at home for their owners a living nightmare. Dogs are just as guilty of it. And the ones we've brought to your attention below, they might even be doing it on purpose.

Thankfully, we're on the other side of the polar vortex, and we can look back on it and laugh uproariously. Unless we're this dog. His shame will live forever.

We Tried It: Putting Socks on Your Dog for Christmas

How to Put Socks on Your Dog This Christmas

Originally posted 12/24/2013 01:00PM

Every year, we know we can rely on our well-meaning mothers and/or less kind-hearted frenemies to leave us a pair of socks underneath the Christmas tree. We're not complaining. Actually, we think it's about time our pets got in on this annual holiday tradition.

If you've always dreamed of watching your dog pitter-patter down the stairs in little socks come Christmas morning – or is that just us? – we're here to help.

You'll need: one dog (model: this editor's beloved pup, Chloe), a pair of socks (we chose Woodrow Wear's Power Paws socks), your pooch's treat-of-choice and unrelenting hope.

The Daily Treat: How Your Cat Stole Christmas

Originally posted 12/24/2013 06:45AM























Maybe it was a bad idea to gift wrap your cat this year.

Either way, some felines are clearly more likely to leave you something in the litter box than underneath the Christmas tree. This minute-long tribute (via The Huffington Post) to non-festive felines is dedicated to every cat who's ever snuck a bite of Santa's cookies, knocked over the Christmas tree and scratched up all of the presents (all of 'em!).

You're a mean one, Mr. Kitty. (Watch the destruction unfold above.) But we know the Grinch would be proud.

The Daily Treat: Watch a Cat Try to Destroy Christmas

Originally posted 12/16/2013 02:00PM

The holidays are especially hard on cats. People are constantly trying to cover you in gift wrap and put a santa hat on your perfectly fluffy little head. It's not like you can drown your sorrows in eggnog lattes, either. You're just lucky if the humans remembered to buy you your own stocking this year, and even then, you're just going to get catnip, again.

Heed our warning: This video (watch above) is what happens when it all becomes a little too much to handle. When the jingle bells no longer rock. When just the scent of a peppermint candle ... we can't even.

This Is What Happens When Cats Take Over an N.Y.C. Nativity Scene

Originally posted 12/11/2013 04:00PM

These days, the holiday season is really about peppermint-flavored everything and cats. But mostly cats.

We have cats in Christmas trees. Cats in Santa hats hating Christmas. Cats in Santa hats loving ... you get the point.

But some festive felines in Red Hook, Brooklyn, are taking their holiday cheer to biblical proportions. That's right – they're turning a local residence's nativity scene into a cat-ivity scene.

The Daily Treat: Grumpy Cat Stars in Christmas Music Video

Originally posted 12/12/2013 04:00PM

While Christmas is a time to be with friends and family, enjoy good food and drinks – and, yes, receive presents – it's not quite so cheerful for your cat. Or so says a super squad of Internet famous felines in a new music video.

Grumpy Cat, Colonel Meow, Hamilton the Hipster Cat, Nala Cat and Oskar the Blind Cat come together to help spread an important message this holiday season: It's hard to be a cat at Christmas. The quintet mopes along while a festive song plays and explains why it's challenging for a family pet to be around so much merriness, including human gifts and good eats, without being included.

The Daily Treat: Homeland Is Going to the Dogs on 'Boneland'

Originally posted 12/12/2013 02:00PM

This season of Homeland has been an intense one, featuring multiple cover-ups, dangerous alliances and the real threat of death looming around every corner.

But if you're one of the fans who gave up on the show this year due to its seemingly implausible plot points, let these canines re-inspire you. Bark Box's "Boneland" parody combines all of the show's best moments – Carrie (Claire Danes) and Saul's (Mandy Patinkin) partnership at the CIA, her on-and-off relationship with Brody (Damien Lewis) – with, you guessed it, puppies.
