Explain this: if cats hate water, what are they doing in the sink? Are they thirsty? Is the sink simply too ‘cat-sized’ to ignore? We could try to read the minds of all the 513 cats in this photo gallery, but we’ll pass.

Wow. When Kai Fagerström found out that all manners of animals like foxes and badgers had moved into the deserted houses near his family’s summer home in Suomusjärvi, Finland not too long ago, he took these stunning snapshots. As he put it, “There’s consolation in the idea that nature is reclaiming the places it has lent to people.”
Fine art photographer Charles Fréger, who is based in Rouen, France, recently trudged through 19 countries in Europe with his lens, capturing rituals such as the Festival of Bears or Fete de l’Ours in the Pyrenees, which had men dress up as the beasts stirring from hibernation. It’s fascinating to see how people all over […]
Dolphins. The more we know about them, the cooler they are. Here’s a bunch of pictures we found showing dolphins having a ball of a time catching the wave at Bondi Beach in Sydney. You’ve got to love these creatures.
Internet behold! Your favourite animals – sloths, sharks, cats, unicorns – all have knitting patterns for toys that you know you need (yes, you can sleep with a toy sloth at 30).

Okay, this happened nearly a decade back, but as Business Insider said of Shrek, a sheep that craftily dodged the shears by holing up in a South Island New Zealand cave for six years, ‘We can remember him in photos.’ That’s a lot of wool there.
Ants are cool. This BBC video footage showing ants creating a living raft from their naturally water-repellent bodies — just so they can sail in flooded waters — is amazing. It’s a curious and marvelous sight.
I am a Swedish illustrator and designer who works in London. I love character design, doodling and patterns, being inspired by childhood memories, my bad sense of humour, and my love for nature. With my constantly growing Animal Kingdom collection, I combine all that with a bit of “nature strikes back”.
We’ve known geese to be a feisty bunch yes, but who knew they’d make good partners in, er, fighting crime? In the Xinjiang province of China, the boys in blue are using geese to watch over the police stations at night.
Photographer David Doubilet captures a lot of stunning underwater life, such as these cute little Nudibranch or marine sea slugs. The colorful food they consume is what gives them these crazy hues, which in turns signal to predators that eating them is a bad idea.
Every morning I wake up and have this hazy half recollection of a series a dreams the night before. The linearity doesn’t follow, the settings and props are spontaneous, space and time are surreal. However, something inside me lets me know that it all makes sense. Fred Stonehouse’s painting and works on paper take these […]

We wondered if any adoring Hello Kitty fan who’s also a cat owner would actually dress their cat as the mouthless doll. Yes, the answer is yes. Must say though, these kitties certainly don’t look very pleased. Watch out for the surprise appearance by a photoshopped Grumpy Cat and a sheepish-looking chihuahua.
Fish don’t make great friends. Well, particularly the ones of the twospot astyanax variety. Robert Young from the University of Salford and Vinícius Goulart from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, were investigating how to deter fish from getting into the machinery when they made this accidental finding.
