Let These 5 Animals Brighten Your Blue Monday

Originally posted 01/06/2014 04:00PM

We're nearly a week past New Year's Day, but there's another day of importance lurking just after the start of 2014: Blue Monday, or in this instance, January 6, deemed to be the most depressing day of the year as it marks the return to work after the holidays.

Researchers found that Tweets at this time of the month were more likely to express guilt about giving up their New Year's resolutions, while drinks company Upbeat found complaints about the weather were also likely to increase.

But despite the odds not being in our favor, we've found a surefire way to beat the dread that allegedly accompanies this day: Pets! And below, we share that strategy with you.

Is there an unofficial contest going on in Hollywood we don't know about?

First, Kelly Clarkson released an awkward family Christmas photo. Then, Mena Suvari. Now, we have Joe Jonas.

The middle JoBro posted this, um, thought-provoking photo to his Instagram account on Thursday, depicting himself as several years (decades?) older and without most of his thick dark hair.

The Daily Treat: 'Subway Kittens' Find Fur-ever Home with Brooklyn Couple

Originally posted 10/24/2013 07:30PM

No need to do away with the hipster wardrobe, Arthur and August – the 'Subway Kittens' have permanently moved to Brooklyn.

In August, the feline duo stopped service along New York City's B and Q lines for several hours when they somehow managed to find their way onto the subway tracks. Following their rescue, the pair was fostered by Steven Liu, a 25-year-old Bushwick, N.Y., resident, and his roommates to prepare them for adoption. "They're still really shy. I think they've been stray for a while," he told the Daily News at the time.

The Somerhalder family is getting even bigger!

A little more than a month since The Vampire Diaries's Ian Somerhalder brought home rescue dog Nietzsche, he took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that his "new girl" is pregnant and due any day now.

"Preparing for the launch of a whole part of life – being a GRANDFATHER," he wrote. "I've got my hand on a belly with 8 little ones about to explode out into the world."

Excuse me, Taylor – I'm waiting!

Though Swift is a constant presence on best dressed lists, it seems like her cat, Meredith, has her own fierce fashion opinions.

"Somehow this adds extra pressure to the already-stressful task of choosing what shoes to wear to meet and greet," the singer Tweeted on Thursday, sharing a photo of her feline staring down several pairs of pumps. While Swift's best furry friend has often been present for some of the star's biggest moments, including to celebrate her 2013 Grammy win, perhaps this time, the country crooner would prefer to have a second to herself.

The Daily Treat: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Cuddles a Kitten and We All Die Happy

There's a lot to love about Joseph Gordon-Levitt: his charming turn in 500 Days of Summer; his determination to do the right thing in The Dark Knight Rises; his face. But just when you think you've hit peak JGL appreciation, the sexy star of Don Jon, which he also wrote and directed, gives us one more reason to pine over him: he cuddles with a kitten.

The actor adorably cradles the tiny furbaby in a new spread for the October issue of Out magazine, which he also covers. Inside, Gordon-Levitt heaps praise on his late brother Dan, who passed away in 2010, and talks about how his parents raised him to be compassionate.

"They both instilled into me and my brother the feeling that we're part of the world, and that that's important – that we're all connected and everyone's well-being is tied to each other," he says. "They're hippies, but they were not so much about being flower children as getting something done, trying to stop this war, or changing civil rights or the feminist movement – and they still are that way."

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.
