Friends Fur-Ever: The Stray Cat And The Lynx

There is something endlessly fascinating to us about animals friends that just shouldn't exist.

World Cup 2014 Has Gone To The Dogs!

Must say. . . professional futbol players have an age-old tradition of conducting themselves in a very gentleman-like fashion. As evidenced at this year's World Cup in Brazil, if one player trips or elbows another and causes him to take a fall, you'll often see them helping their opponents back onto their feet, or rubbing their head, or apologizing by offering a handshake.

If ever an animal symbolized the "bah, humbug" concept associated with the holidays, it is Grumpy Cat. Whoever would have thought that such a cat would get her  own Lifetime movie deal? Read on or the latest on this up-and-coming  holiday film project.

World Cup 2014 Winners Determined By Psychic Animals? (Videos)

Animals seem to have leg up on the bookmakers when it comes to wagers made to determine winners in major sporting events.
