Down, canine! There’s nothing a cat can’t bring under control with a good kitty swipe. Or unbearable cuteness. Really, cats just wield this weird invisible hold over everyone. Even dogs. Especially dogs. All hail kitty.
Kaitlin Becket’s style is unlike anything I have seen in a long time. Her characters and creatures are truly unique. Incorporating elements of steampunk and oriental folklore, this quirky mix melds together with a stunning effect. Beckett’s creative palette is growing in richness as she continues to bend new mediums to her will.
There is an old greek myth about the origin of dolphins. Supposedly they were sailors who fell overboard a sinking ship and sprouted fins. If dolphins used to be human, then it’s no wonder we identify so strongly with the creatures. They still act like us. All that to say, it came as no surprise […]
Tim Jeffs’ incredibly detailed ink drawings give us another reason to marvel at the beauty of nature. His series of black and white animal illustrations captures the form of these creatures in an almost hyperrealistic way. For such detailed drawings, his compositions are refreshingly simple and balanced
If you haven’t been remiss in your Lost At E Minor reading, then you would have seen the post in March on Menswear Dog, the fashionable Shiba Inu dressed up in GQ worthy duds. It turns out that dogs aren’t the only creatures who look good decked out in trench coats, fur collared jackets, or denim shirts. In Miguel Vallinas’s series Second Skins, we see all sorts of beasts, from deer and zebras to owls and roosters, modeling the best of contemporary fashion for us.
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.
