She may not be on any official best dressed lists, but we'd take style advice from this kangaroo any day.
Boomeroo – who was adopted by Virginia resident Julia Heckathorn at just 3 weeks old – boasts an entire wardrobe of human clothing. Among the duds filling her closet: shirts, sweaters and dresses, all purchased from baby shops.
"When we first got Boomeroo, she was wearing a little shirt, and she's worn clothes ever since," Heckathorn, 28, told the U.K.'s Daily Mail. "She loves her tops, and when I have to take her top off to clean it, she puts her arms out and waits for me to dress her again."

The start of a New Year often means one familiar resolution: to get in shape. This year, PEOPLE is honoring five individuals who managed to lose half of their weight, but they're not the only ones worthy of some applause – or should we say ap-paws.
Over the past year, these three overweight animals also decided to get back on track (with a little help from their human friends) and shed their excess weight. Much like with their owners, obesity in pets can lead to a variety of health issues and complications, some of which were at fault for for the death of 33-lb. cat Sponge Bob in August 2012.

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.

Nothing brings two individuals together like common ground – and that's exactly what happened in the case of miniature horse Judd and Tyler Cribbs.
Judd was born at the Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association in Grantville, Pa., two months ago with a condition that prevents him from supporting his own weight without splints. The association offers horseback riding as therapy to patients with disabilities, but in the case of Judd, the organization was faced with an opportunity to do the opposite.
"It's our turn to give therapy back," CATRA's Ben Nolt told local station WHTM, adding, "There are horses who have had this in the past and recovered normally. We're sort of a wait and see."

Who says couture can't be fashionable and practical?
A rescue kitten named Wasabi-chan is proving that statement true after photos of the itty-bitty furball went viral showing her dressed as a mushroom and in other adorable crocheted ensembles.
But the stylish kitty's purr-recious sartorial selection stemmed from necessity more than vanity. Wasabi-chan was attacked by a crow on June 2, reports Mashable, and suffered a fractured upper jaw and split tongue. She required a catheter to feed, but kept wiggling the tube out of her mouth. Thus, her owner, who goes by the Twitter handle @jessiepon, crafted a series of costumes to keep Wasabi-chan still during feedings.

No Bieber? No problem!
Justin's capuchin monkey, Mally, has found a new home after spending the past few months in quarantine at a Munich, Germany, animal shelter.
In May, he was transferred to the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen. Now, he's living with his new family – six other capuchin monkeys – in a new area dubbed "Mally-bu," zoo spokeswoman Juliane Gunkel tells CNN. "He is very clever and he's the right age."
