Uber Delivers Kittens on Demand

Leave a comment

Cuddly kittens got busted Wednesday at the security desk of the Washington Post.  The Express decided to try out Uber’s Wednesday-only offer to pay $30 to have a kitten delivered to you for 15 minutes of snuggling. The delivery seemed to not be a problem: Two kittens, Sneezy and Sleepy, showed up in a crate at The Washington Post’s main lobby, according to pictures from our Express colleagues.

In Just One Day We Saved Thousands of Animals

1 Comment

Twelve years ago on June 11, 2001, the No Kill sheltering movement went from the theoretical to the real. As I drove into the parking lot for the first time as the head of the open admission animal control shelter in Tompkins County, New York, an agency which took in all animals for the 10 towns and cities that made up the County, I was met at the front door by a truck driver with five kittens he didn’t want.

Your Cat Thinks You’re Just Another Cat

3 Comments

As an overly-exuberant animal lover, I’m somewhat ashamed to confess that I am not a cat person.  Sure, cats are as cute as the next fuzzy mammal and kittens are all-out adorable, but felines enjoy hunting and killing things, and they don’t seem to care much for humans either. Unlike the “I’ll-love-you-and-be-your-best-friend-forever-no-matter-what!” enthusiasm you get from a dog, cats always seem to be giving me the side eye, and in turn, I usually feel the need to give it right back.

Just because someone is a lot bigger than you doesn’t mean you can’t be friends. This is no more true among humans as it is with other animals. Case in point: big dogs playing with little kittens. Check out these adorable kittens playing with their much bigger and incredibly patient dog friends.

What do puppies, piggies and birds that use Twitter have in common? They’re all going to be a part of the Puppy Bowl, a Super Bowl alternative which celebrates cuteness over gridiron prowess. With Super Bowl XLVI barely a week away, some fans are already asking, “Are you ready for some football?” If you aren’t, then get ready for some puppies. Puppy Bowl VIII, which will air on Super Bowl Sunday on Animal Planet, is the cutest bowl you’ve seen since, well, Puppy Bowl VII.

June is Adopt-A-Cat Month

Leave a comment

Each spring during “kitten season,” thousands of newborn kittens join the millions of cats already in shelters across the country. That means your local shelter has tons of cute, cuddly newborns, in addition to all the mellow, older cats and everything in between. And the shelter staff are ready to help you adopt your very first cat — or to bring home a friend for another beloved cat!
