Things are getting a bit crowded in Tori Spelling's bed.
The actress, 39, posted a Vine video to her Twitter account Sunday, giving followers an inside look at her family's nighttime ritual.
"This is how we sleep…" she wrote alongside a video that shows shirtless husband Dean McDermott in bed with dog Mitzi (watch below). Off to the side, the clip gives a quick peek at two of their four children – Liam, 6, Stella, 4, Hattie, 18 months, and Finn, almost 8 months old – fast asleep while the family chicken, Coco, lounges nearby.

Is it time for my ap-paws?
While most celebrities walk the red carpet, Internet sensation Lil Bub took a decidedly simpler approach: taking a seat.
The famous feline was on hand for Thursday's Tribeca Film Festival premiere of the documentary Lil Bub & Friendz, which chronicles the popularity of its titular star and fellow Internet obsessions like Grumpy Cat and Keyboard Cat.

The words "cute," or if we're being punny, paw-dorable come to mind when we think of our pets.
But not for Jimmy Fallon.
"Gary likes to eat her bed," the soon-to-be Tonight Show host wrote on Instagram.

Some people have skeletons in their closets. Others have preserved cat remains in their attics.
That's just what Robert Gray found at the Cornwall, England, bed and breakfast he owns. After first discovering what appeared to be a stuffed cat in his attic, Gray thought it was a kooky antique of sorts. But an X-ray scan by a veterinarian revealed something even more bizarre: his finding was a 2,000-year-old Egyptian mummy.

Just two days ago, a bulldog-mix was dropped off at a high-kill rabies control shelter in Jackson, Tenn., a town of about 65,000 just two hours outside of Nashville. A plea for help was posted Wednesday on a Facebook page dedicated to saving pets facing euthanasia.
More than a thousand people responded.
It was the dog's story that pushed him past the other sad faces – many of which still need homes – that fill up the Jackson TN Euthanasia Facebook page: "This guy was signed over to RC, not bc he's mean or bc he tears things up, but because... His owner says he's gay!"

That's one adorable backseat driver!
After braving the stormy Dumfries, Scotland, weather, a savvy seal found some shelter ... on the dashboard of a car.
The 6-month-old pup, fittingly named Smartie, was first discovered wandering the area surrounding the Cairnryan ferry terminal. Concerned, staff tried to return the seal to the water. When Smartie refused, an employee put him in the trunk of his car to wait until animal rescuers arrived on the scene.
But Smartie needed a change of scenery.

Charles the Labradoodle loves kids, pizza and tailgating at Old Dominion University football games.
But on the outside, his appearance is – dare we say – just a little fur-ocious.
Groomed to look like a lion, Charles (full name: Charles the Monarch) earns plenty of attention – this time, from a concerned Norfolk, Va., resident who mistook the dog for the real deal.
A 911 caller told police that a baby lion was on the prowl down Colley Avenue on Tuesday, reports the Virginian-Pilot. Perhaps the animal was on the hunt for food, the caller worried, so police contacted the Virginia Zoo to see if any lions were on the loose.

It's a love story for the ages, like Prince William and Kate, or Beyoncé and Jay-Z. It's a tale perhaps even more complicated than the storied saga of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.
Meet the ultimate lovebirds: a pair of Magellanic penguins who have stayed committed to each other, through thick and thin ice, for the past 16 years.
Biologists say their relationship has lasted almost their entire breeding life, including gaps of time apart that included 200,000 miles worth of solo trips, according to the U.K.'s Telegraph. Penguins typically live about 20 years after they start breeding, proving these two truly have grown old together.

Call it Tallon's Ark: One by one, this 16-year-old from Fort Collins, Colo., has been taking his picture with every new animal species he encounters. His tally so far: 840.
Tallon Nightwalker began his quest when he was 5 years old. His father Bob Nightwalker, a single dad, has helped in documenting the project, which is an attempt to "get pictures with as many different species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians before they disappear," according to Tallon's Facebook page.
The rules are that the animal must be touching or close to Tallon, but there cannot be a barrier (like a cage) between them. He has held boa constrictors, let a peace-faced lovebird sit on his head and kissed a wolf.

A quick glance at Peanut reveals not the biggest of dogs, nor the most intimidating of stares, but a doe-eyed – did we say adorable? – dachshund-terrier mix.
But this little pooch found herself in some big trouble last October, when a scuffle with a wild skunk left her buried alive – and almost dead.
Now, almost a year later, Peanut is the 2012 recipient of the Veterinary Pet Insurance Hambone Award, which honors the most unusual pet insurance claims of the year. (The accolade itself is named after a VPI-insured dog who ate an entire Thanksgiving ham while stuck in a walk-in refrigerator.)
While Peanut has something to celebrate now, there was nothing happy about the situation that followed when Keith and Christy Wolfram of Sicklerville, N.J., couldn't find their canine companion. Peanut, who seldom shies away from a little face time with wildlife, had clashed with a skunk and slipped beneath the deck in the backyard. The Wolframs then called the local fire department.
