Camel toe

Camel toe satire "ads." They're popping up like fanny packs on hipsters. There's one on Funny or Die and SNL made one, too. Um, yay tired juvenile humor?

What isn't tiring, however, are actual camels.

And why are those little camel ears so gross? Oops, was that ironic? You hipstas understand.

Kittens in unmentionables

As cute as these kittens are, this one crosses the line.
There's a tacit understanding of what's going on here, and that caption is confirming information that we didn't really want to hear.
Put your pants back on!

Teepee for cats

 The Petophile loves cats (duh) and teepees. 
But what about a teepee for cats?

Online boutique Montreal Designers has these little cardboard shelters for felines for $24. 
The most interesting part of the product's description (which feels a bit politically incorrect):
"The Native American Teepee for Fluffy Little Critters is also adapted for corpulent cats (up to 40lbs)."
Whoa. Who the heck has 40-pound cats? Not cool, dude. Scale back on the kitten chow.

If anyone out there purchases one of these shelters, you must send photographic evidence of your animal inside. Or you could try making your own, which the Petophile will also require photos of. Required, dangit!

Have a drink, grackle

Instead of bird eating today, the Petophile proposes bird watching.

Like watching this grackle take a drink. 

It's a desert bird, so it's pretty resourceful and well-equipped to get any small amount of water that it can find.

Fur Free Friday

I know for petophiles out there, a day without fur seems like a day not worth living, but Fur Free Friday, which is this Friday, November 26, is about the dead fur that people choose to wear, not the live fur that we share our lives with, such as
Especially since fur is trendy again, if you're going to buy into it, make sure it's faux, because the fur industry has a history of skinning animals alive. That's unacceptable.
Check out http://www.furfreefridayida.org, where there's more information on the furless day and also places around the world where you can participate in demonstrations to raise awareness.

Breadbasket pose

 Here are a few examples of the ever popular breadbasket pose, presented from multiple angles. Please study.

 In this iteration, the cat's paws are visible. 

 This cat has its paws tucked in: It's the advanced, ideal form.

However, tail should be curled into the body. Pull it together, cat!

Old-fashioned bunny porn

Petophiles predate photography by hundreds of years. Without the technology of the Internets, paintings and drawings were their mediums of choice to make their kitty porn. Pre-historic cave dwellers? Petophiles. Beatrix Potter? She made a career off of being a petophile. I'm totally jealous.

A lesson in grooming and puppification

 This puppy is middle-aged.

 And by his tail, one can see that his long fur on the rest of his body has been sheared. What a nice, trim fur cut.

 The result?

 He's cuter than ever, and the short cut has puppified him to look younger, too. (Apparently, he thinks he's a lap dog as well, but that's another issue all together.)

 He even looks like a puppy fetus when he sleeps. That's really young!

Surprise kitten 2.0

Here's a link to an excellent kitten video. Those crazy clever fuzz buckets.

Kitten vs. alligator

Sequence of events: Kitten dominates alligator, kitten dominates alligators, kitten snuggles a child. 
Kittens rule the Internets.

The Petophile, obviously, does not rule the Internet or this blog and cannot seem to get the video to be be published in its full frame. View it here if you can't see the whole thing. Worth it.

What's a "bunky"?

Rawr. The petophile belonging to the eyeball at the bottom of this picture calls those two black balls of fur above "bunkies": a combination of bunny and monkey. But really, they're just kittens.

 Puss out of boots, meet creepy fabric fish.

Seeing double is twice as nice.

The eyes have it

But so do the eyelashes.

As do the ears. Fuzzy, fuzzy ears.

And the nostrils.

I concede: The whole package has it all.

The cuterestest kitten ever

 Nastypants hamming it up—with a squishy eye!

 See, this is how she got her name.

 'Cause them pants be naaasty.

That coin there in the foreground is for scale, to see how huge her cuteness is.

Is big.

Bad kitty porn

 The flash.

 The bad framing.

The lack of focus. 
It's good old-fashioned kitty porn.

Cat on a phone: kittens in the 'hood

 This orange kitten was chasing a wild turkey that was easily three times bigger than him. 
Guess how that hunt turned out?

This kitten was napping. That why he's got a little sleepyface going on.
