Kristen Stewart: "I'm a Crazy Cat Lady"

Forget what you’ve heard about Kristen Stewart’s rumored romance with “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson; the 20-year-old starlet only has eyes for one guy, and he’s got four legs. (But no, he’s not a werewolf.) Stewart is “obsessed” with her cat,

Stewart claims her life isn’t nearly as glamorous as all the red-carpet appearances make it seem, telling Contactmusic.com, “I’m so boring. No I am. I sit in my house with my cat. I’m a crazy cat lady, just give me a couple of years. I have one cat but I’m obsessed with him.”

What Pets Can Teach Us About Marriage

Do you greet each other with excitement, overlook each other’s flaws and easily forgive bad behavior? If it’s your pet, the answer is probably yes. But your spouse? Probably not.In an article on PsychCentral, clinical psychologist Suzanne B. Phillips of Long Island University explores what our relationships with pets can teach us about our relationship with a spouse or romantic partner.

“What is interesting in my work with couples is that although couples may vehemently disagree on most topics, they usually both soften in manner and tone to agree that the dog, cat, bird or horse is great,” Dr. Phillips writes.She argues that we all have much to learn from the way we love our pets. People often describe pets as undemanding and giving unconditional love, when the reality is that pets require a lot of time and attention, special foods and care. They throw up on rugs, pee in the house and steal food from countertops. Yet we accept their flaws because we love them so much.

Gay Swans Set Up Nest At World's Only Swannery In Dorset

gay-swans_1615558c

Two male swans have ruffled feathers at the world’s only swannery in Dorset after they set up a love nest together.
The happy couple at Abbotsbury Swannery are the only homosexual swans among more than 1,000 birds at the reserve.They are believed to be only the second male pair ever to hook up at the reserve. The pair show no interest in their female companions and only have eyes for each other.

Dave Wheeler, from the swannery, said: “The two birds both hatched in 2002 and are sort of together.”They have been together for several nesting seasons and basically keep territory as if they are a nesting pair.”The twosome flock together at the start of the nesting season in March and perform rituals associated with a breeding couple.Manager of Abbotsbury Swannery, John Houston, said: “The swans have been nesting together like this for several years and they get together every nesting season and form a nest together.

“They sit on the nest and act in every way as if they were a pair expecting to lay eggs.”It is quite sweet.”Like most couples, the swans are known for the occasional lover’s tiff, but are quick to sort out their differences.”They just always stay together and I hear that they have some spectacular fights with each other, but they always make up and get back together,” said Mr Houston.”We have more than a thousand swans here in the reserve and they are the only two doing this. We don’t know of any others acting in this way in the area.

American Idol's Paige Miles Loves Singing And Rescuing Dogs!

001749665

Although Naples, Fla., native Paige Miles got eliminated from American Idol last week, she and fellow bootee Lacey Brown hope to get an apartment in L.A. soon to continue pursuing their musical dreams. Until then, the 24-year-old pre-school teacher can’t wait to get back home to Houston to see her dogs, and save some, too.

“I love dogs and I’m very involved in animal rescue,” Miles “Laila is a Newfoundland mix and a rescue I got two years ago. I have another Shih Tzu mix, or something-mix, we don’t really know – that I got a year ago, plus I have tons of dogs in and out so I always have a lot of dogs at home.”

While home in Houston, Miles spends weekends working with local Petco and PetSmart stores to hold adopt-a-thons for shelter animals that need to be adopted. “I also foster,” Miles says, “which means when we are at a kill space or just need to put a dog some place really quickly, I’ll just bring the dogs home and take care of them until we can find them permanent homes.” Miles also volunteers to clean shelters. “It’s a non-profit so everything we get is from donations and volunteer work,” she adds. “I just love dogs so whatever I can do to help, I’ll do.”

A Horse Who Loves To Paint !!

Some unusual art is on display in Citrus County, but it’s not the paintings, themselves, that are unusual. It’s who painted them.

Cheryl Ward said she considers herself an assistant to the artists, who paint in what she calls an “abstract expressionist” style.
She pours the paint and sets up the canvases, and her four horses do the rest…“They absolutely love to take the brush in their teeth, and move it up and down the canvas,” Ward said.“It’s a collaboration between horse and human,” Ward said. “I was blown away by how much fun it was, and how they came out.”

When the paintings are done, Ward puts them up for sale. Some have sold for as much as $3,000. The horses’ artwork can be found on the walls of the Florida Artist Gallery, in Floral City.

4 Ways To Show Your Pet Some LOVE

001603435

We know that just like us, you’ll be treating your pet this Valentine’s Day — but you may be unsure of how exactly to show your love. We recently spoke to pet entertaining expert and author Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, to get her advice on feting your furry friend.”I don’t want people to think that Valentine’s Day has to be a huge thing,” Whitman said Wednesday at Chef Michael’s Be My Valentine Doggie Dinner Party in New York. “There are simple ways to celebrate with your pet, and make them feel loved and pampered, by using the acronym LOVE.”

L stands for “lounging around.” “Lay on the sofa, snuggle on the floor, it doesn’t matter where,” Whitman says. “It makes them feel extraordinary, and I think sometimes we forget what an impact that has on them.”

O
stands for “ordering in.” “If you order food for yourself, get your dog an extra-special premium food. … Stay at home and have dinner together!”

V stands for “Valentine’s Day gift.” “Give them a little something to commemorate the day. It helps them know that something special is going on.”

E stands for “extra-special pampering.” “Make them know they look their best, and make them feel their best,” Whitman says. “It’s the simple things.”

The Lessons In Courtship We Can Learn From Animal

LOVE IS A DRUG

Most male mice are happy with just a short moment of passion – a quick knee-trembler behind the skirting board with a partner, and then he’s off. But a male Californian Mouse is the opposite: he seems a perfect mouse-husband who stays in to help groom and feed his mousewife, bringing her water, doing the housework and helping to look after their babies.Proof that he’s fallen head over paws in love? No, simply that the clever female has drugged him.She produces hormones in her urine that he finds intoxicating. Something in his brain is triggered by the scent, and he becomes her slave, working to exhaustion.Sound familiar? It should do. Because love is a drug for humans, too. When we fall in love, our brains swim with opioids – a natural intoxicant from the same class of chemical as heroin – and similarly addictive
