Tori Spelling Adopts, Yet Another, Family Member

Enough already!

The former Beverly Hills 90210 star visited the Malibu Farmer's Market on Sunday - but instead of groceries, she went home with a puppy.

Tori already has a husband, Dean their two kids Liam and Stella, another bun in the oven, plus Dean's kids Jack and Lola. And that's just he humans!

Tori also has a chicken, a pig, a goat (or two), AND NOW she has a puppy!

We know she's got the money and the love, but does she have the time for all these animals?

What? It was a Labrador puppy?

Oh, we totally understand. That's too cute to pass up!

Science: 'Cows Have BFFs'

Filed under: Science!FunnyCow

"Cows Have BFFs" - Science

Move over Milo and Otis!

The farm has some new best friends 4 Evsies.

Cows have best friends and become stressed if they are separated, according to research.

In the study cattle were penned on their own, with their best friend or with another cow they did not know for 30 minutes and their heart rates were measured at 15-second intervals.

The research showed cows were very social animals which often formed close bonds with friends in their herd.

Krista McLennan, who made the discovery while working on her PhD at Northampton University, said:

'If we can encourage farmers to keep an eye out for those cows which like to keep their friends with them, it could have some real benefits, such as improving their milk yields and reducing stress for the animals, which is very important for their welfare."

So it turns out happy cows do make happy cheese!

Question: when a cow gets dumped does her bff bring over ice cream? Somehow we don't think so.

Ke$ha Defends Her Butt Feather Love

Ke$ha's Defends Her Butt Feather Love

Wake up (after you brush your teeth with whisky) take some responsibility!!

Ke$ha can take FULL credit for becoming one of the leaders of the feather hair extension craze that have become as popular at salons as gossipy gay hairdressers - but she doesn't want everyone to peg her as the source for roosters that die after their plumage is plucked.

While stylists scour their nearest fish bait shops for these specific hard-to-find feathers (the long, skinny black-and-white striped feathers called "grizzly saddle"), farmers can't keep up with demand.

One farm harvests about 1,500 birds a week and can barely keep up with its current orders, boosting the price of the plumes (from the rooster's butt) up to nearly $500!

What's worse - the birds are killed before these feathers are removed.

Friday Ke$ha tried defending herself and her murderous feathery hair stuffs via twitter.

She said:

"I'm hearing about roosters that have been plucked and hurt or even killed for thier feathers…"

"I'd love to give u guys my own personal feather contact. she's totally animal friendly + recycles bones + feathers to make all my accessories."

"If u guys like feathers-try animal friendly pieces meet my friend Kate!"

Cat Adopts Baby Chicks

Filed under: CatAwwwwwChickens

cat is mom to baby chicks

This seems a bit suspicious….

This cat's maternal clock is stronger than her predatory instincts.

Chinese farmer Lao Yang was worried when he first saw his cat, Niu Niu, with the chicks, saying:

"I came back home and found Niu Niu had got into the chicks' box and I thought she was going to eat them."

After the initial shock, Lao then added:

"I shouted at her and she froze. But then I realised that the chicks were climbing all over her and she was just playing with them. It's amazing. Niu Niu even embraces the chicks in her sleep, and they chirp as if they are under their mother's belly. Niu Niu seems to just love lying down with the chicks. She licks them clean and plays with them while they follow her everywhere."

Lao, of Suibing County, Heilongjiang Province, said he now leaves Niu Niu to look after the baby chicks while he goes out to work.

Let's just hope she isn't just fattening them up.

"Scummiest CEO Of The Year" Hunts Elephants Without Apology

Filed under: Sad SadPETAElephantsDisgusting!

Just wrong.

Bob Parsons, the CEO of GoDaddy.com, has killed at least one elephant and a leopard for his personal enjoyment.

It has been well established that elephants are capable of experiencing emotions, including joy, anger, grief, and sympathy. Killing a single elephant can devastate a family, and their mourning ritual over the death of a family member rivals any that we humans have developed.

Parsons is hiding behind the lame claim that killing elephants helps farmers in Africa whose crops are damaged by the animals. In fact, there are ample effective and nonlethal methods to deter elephants from crops.

When Parsons found out PETA was naming him "Scummiest CEO of the Year" and sending him a certificate.

The scumbag doesn't care. He said "I'm framing it and putting in my office."

gross.

Please take a moment to send an e-mail to Bob Parsons letting him know that you won't use GoDaddy.com's services until he stops shooting animals.

First Ligers, Then Walphines, Now Sheepdogs

Filed under: Photos!Cuteness!PuppyDogCrazzzzySheep

Sheepdog 1
What the Sheepdog

Could this be true?

Chinese witch doctor farmer Liu Naiying says one of his sheep gave birth to a dog.

The puppy has wool like a lamb but its mouth, nose, eyes, paws and tail look more like a dog's. His sheep dog even plays like a pup.

The birth has prompted thousands to flock to his farm in Shaanxi Province to see for themselves.

The farmer said he found the unusual baby animal shortly after it was born in one of his fields.

"I was herding the sheep, and saw a sheep licking her newborn lamb on the grassland. The lamb was still wet. When I went up close to check on the lamb I was shocked because it looked so weird, like a cross between a sheep and a dog.

Yue Guozhang, a researcher at Xi'an City Animal Husbandry Technology Centre and known party pooper, said sheep and dogs were different species.

"It's not possible that a sheep could become pregnant with a puppy. It's likely that this is just an abnormal lamb."

Yue Guozhang will not crush our sheepdog dreams!

He's too cute to be a one time fluke.
