Dog Kimonos Perfect For Four-Legged Samurai

DOG SAMURAI

If ever there were a way to single-handedly reduce traditional Japanese formal wear into a joke for the sake of preciousness, boy have we found it!

Sold alongside their line of tuxedos and bridesmaid dresses, Gramercy Pet’s dog kimono turns a centuries-old historic fashion statement into something ideal for eliciting coos and awws from passersby.

As described by the folks at Gramercy Pet, kimonos were “originally worn only by men, especially by samurai, but today they are worn by both men and women and your dog!”

If, by chance, your dog is also a samurai, then you’ll have really hit the jackpot!

Cockroach Named Heathcliffe Could Be World's Largest

giat cok

I’ve got some bad news for the little critter who lives between my stove and my sink: He’s not the biggest cockroach in the world. That honor goes to Heathcliffe, a giant Australian burrowing cockroach now on display at Sydney University. Heathcliffe, and cockroaches like him, grow to be as big as 3.5 inches—or roughly as long as an iPhone—and can end up weighing more than an ounce (which in the bug world means avoid horizontal stripes).

What’s more, creepy crawlers like Heathcliffe are considered “great pets” Down Under, Sydney University senior biology lecturer Dr. Nathan Lo tells the Daily Telegraph. “They are totally unrelated to the American cockroach.” For instance, the Aussie bugs give birth to live young, not eggs, then tuck their babies into burrows while they go out and collect gum leaves for the kids to eat—survival skills they picked up after adapting to the cooling of Australia’s rainforests about 5 million years ago. Quite possibly, says Dr. Lo, the stout and sturdy Australian cockroach is “the heaviest of all insects. They are certainly a contender.”

Heathcliffe’s moment in the sun won’t last long—he’s on display for just a while before returning to the home of one of the university’s media managers, who keeps him as a pet. You can buy a pair of your own Australian burrowing cockroaches for around $100 (tiny roach leashes not included). As for me, I guess I’m stuck with the little fella who lives down under my sink.

Michael Jackson’s Tigers Could Face Danger As Preserve Refuses To Evacuate

Michael Jackson’s tigers might be in some serious trouble!

Shambala Preserve – which houses 2 of Michael Jackson’s tigers — is ignoring mandatory evacuation orders as the wildfires in California contain to blaze on.

Actress Tippi Hedren, founder and president of Shambala Preserve in Acton, Calif., said that evacuating her 100 wild animals wouldn’t be prudent since they aren’t in imminent danger.

“We have a very, very good plan with the fire department,” Hedren said to FOX News. “We will stay where we are, let the fire department do their job and we will do ours.”

Other animal sanctuaries in the area have already been evacuated, including Animal Acres.

On a side note: VCA Animal Hospital facilities located near the fire are offering free boarding for companion animals whose families have been evacuated or displaced as a result of the current firestorms. To get a list of all the VCA Animal Hospitals in your area visit VCAPets.com.
