    This is the custom Star Wars landspeeder cat bed built by pet furniture maker Roxy's Dream. It took over 40-hours to complete and is for sale for $600. No word if the cat is included in the price, but for $600 it better be, and it better be able to talk. And not all sassy li... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for LG's new 4K television featuring a bunch of pets reacting to other animals on the screen. It all looked pretty suspect to me. Fake, the shadows are all wrong, you can tell it's fake because it's a commercial and all commercials were designed to trick ... / Continue →

    This is a video detailing the build of a hobbit-hole litter box and Barad-dûr/Eye of Sauron cat-scratching tower for crazed Tolkien fan Misha and his cats Frodo and Sam (yes, seriously -- he even puts Frodo in a bag and calls him Frodo Baggins). Man, my cats would DESTROY that... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video from Greg Coffin of his Rhodesian Ridgeback Sophia growing from two months old to three years old in 23 seconds. So why is the video almost two minutes long? I asked myself the same thing. Hit the jump for the video.... / Continue →

    This is the Alien Facehugger Dog Leash made and sold by Etsy shop GCFX. It costs $150, which is a little out of my dog leash budget (I use three shoelaces tied together and a safety pin). Also, the facehugger is actually attached to a black fabric harness, which is hard to se... / Continue →

    This is a zombie dog costume. It's kind of morbid looking. They cost $16-$20 depending on the size and, based on the Amazon reviews, are incredibly poorly made and not worth the money. Still, I like the little brain hat. You know who it reminds me of? Rex from Fallout: New... / Continue →

    Hot on the little birdy heels of yesterday's laser blaster lyrebird comes this parakeet emulating the sounds of everyone's favorite astromech droid, R2-D2. "I prefer the R5 series." Okay you are way too into astromech droids. Still, I think we can all agree this is -- wait f... / Continue →

    This is Munchkin the Shih Tzu in her custom-made walking teddy bear costume. It was made from an actual teddy bear. Want to make your own? You're in luck! Locked in a cell with a man who wants to kill you? You're in prison! (PROTIP: Make a knife, pronto) Measure your dog ... / Continue →
