Zombie cat has been one-upped. Amigo the kitty not only returned from the dead, he came back to life after being cremated ... or at least that's what his owners thought at first.
According to Metro, John and Margaret Ross's cat named Amigo recently went missing from the couple's home in Hackney, England. Shortly after the pet's disappearance, a cat was run over and killed in the neighborhood. The Rosses were heartbroken to discover the deceased feline looked just like their sweet Amigo.

No one knew just how much drama a pair of llamas (or a really ugly dress) could cause until Thursday afternoon.
Two llamas on the lam avoided capture by the Maricopa County sheriff's deputies in Sun City, Arizona, and commanded the Twitterverse, with hashtags like #LlamasOnTheLoose and #LlamaDrama trending for hours. (The llamas were eventually captured and are safe, according to reports).
The word on the streets of Phoenix and beyond is that nobody was more appalled, confused, and excited to have llamas in the limelight than llamas themselves. In fact, just a few weeks ago, Vogue predicted their emergence as this year's "It Animal."
