Nobody does guilt like a pet. Seriously, how could you say no to that face? Or, better yet, how could you get that face out of your bed without giving in?



The real Cookie Monster isn't blue and living on Sesame Street. Instead, he's lurking in your cookie containers, ready to pounce at a moment's notice. Beware.

Wondering what all those thumping noises are behind your walls? Turns out it's not ghosts haunting your house, only your cat. But is that really any consolation?

The resemblance between these cats and the Plastics is too uncanny for words. Obviously the one in front is Regina, the one on the computer, which is probably the same cat, is channeling Gretchen, and the one in the lamp...well, clearly Karen.

What do pets think they're doing, not giving us love and affection whenever we demand it? Don't they know they're in our home and our lives for our entertainment? Then again, they usually get treats either way.

We can't tell if these cats are participating in some traditional couch therapy or just trying to mirror each other. Either way, it's completely precious.

What was the best day of your life? Well, the best day of this cat's life was clearly when it prepared to devour a stick of butter in a hot dog bun. With all the appropriate condiments, of course.

This cat is more amazed by technology than any of us ever will be. Really, the only thing that could possibly shock or excite a human this much anymore is visiting Hogwarts (the real one, not the one at Universal Studios).

There are some people who hate needy pets. We say, why have a pet if it's not going to beg for your attention at every opportunity? If nothing else, you'll get priceless pictures like this.
