  • You cannot get online these days without coming across a cute cat video, but the latest video on track to go viral gives you not one, but two furry companions. If you have ever seen the original "Ghostbusters" movie, you may remember Bill Murray's character, Dr. Peter Venkman, saying that a sign of mass hysteria would be dogs and cats living together, and this video clearly supports that statement.

    Over the weekend, Israeli YouTube user Dafna Kopelis uploaded the video "Cat Taking the Dog Home." In the clip, a cat and dog are on an afternoon stroll, and as things start to wrap up and they head back home, the cat takes the leash in its mouth and leads the dog around. The dog does not seem to mind at all, and just follows the cat as it tugs at the leash and leads the way.

    The video has popped up on several blogs and it is poised to go viral, having already collected more than 45,000 views. Several YouTube commenters have offered advice to Dafna such as, "if you haven't already, put a

  • Designer Vera Wang has become a household name nearly worldwide, known mostly for her luxurious wedding gown collection. Celebrities such as Alicia Keys, Kim Kardashian, and even Chelsea Clinton have worn her dresses to exchange their vows, but Wang also sells to the general public -- those with deep pockets or just big budgets.

    Her lavish boutiques are located all over the world, but her newest store in Shanghai is stirring up controversy over its new practice.

    Casual shoppers hoping to try on a Vera Wang gown in Shanghai better get ready to shell out some cash, because the new boutique charges 3,000 yuan (almost $500) just for the privilege. Not only do women looking for a wedding dress have to pay just to see how the dresses fit, but they also can spend no more than 90 minutes trying them on. In addition, photographs are not allowed. If a customer does decide to buy a dress from the designer, the 3,000 yuan is deducted from the total price. If the bride-to-be doesn't buy anything,

  • Capybara Adopts Dachshund Puppies

    There's nothing quite as heartwarming as a story about two animals who form an unlikely friendship. While there have been many examples of this phenomenon -- Koko, the gorilla who cared for kittens, is probably the most well-known one -- a recent one might be the most touching yet.

    Earlier this month, eight abandoned dachshund puppies were discovered behind a church in Arkansas. Four of them were quickly adopted. The other four were taken to the Rocky Ridge Refuge in Gassville, Arkansas, for rehabilitation, so they’d be ready for future adoption.

    For more than 20 years, Rocky Ridge Refuge has been a sanctuary for all kinds of animals -- from dogs and cats to emus and even a record-breaking Watusi steer named Lurch. Under the guidance of Janice Wolf, the refuge focuses especially on those that have faced injury, abuse, or neglect.

    Wolf introduced the four puppies to Rocky Ridge's resident female capybara, named Cheesecake. A South American rodent much like a rather large guinea pig, the

  • We don't usually think of airports as places of great beauty. They are mostly a place holding travelers, so it's not often that we take time to appreciate the complex design and efficiency of these commuter hubs.

    Artist Jeffrey Milstein wants to change that view. Milstein is an aircraft enthusiast and artist who had previously gained fame for his photos of the bellies of airplanes. As a child in Los Angeles, Milstein would go to Los Angeles International Airport and watch the activity, even memorizing flight patterns.

    In Milstein's new collection of photos, he documents with aerial photography the complicated beauty of America's airports. Called "portraits," the photos so far released include views of JFK and Newark Liberty airports. Commenters on the original story at called the photos "sublime." Milstein says the collection is meant to show how these transit behemoths "grow organically over time much like a living organism."

    Many people were curious how, in this

  • It's not just the new paths for runners, cyclists, and walkers that have visitors to Atlanta's BeltLine area so excited to visit. Sure, enthusiasts of the new and improved outdoor spaces are hoping that it will lead to future developments all over the city, but the main attraction at the Eastside Trail is a black cat, affectionately called "Piper."

    Piper the cat has staked a claim on a drainpipe along the trail, and she has quickly gained fans, who regularly stop by to bring the furry feline food, love, and fan mail, which they call "Tail Mail." There is even a tiny homemade mailbox placed near the pipe for people to leave Piper notes.

    One person stopped by to see Piper, but was not able to see her, and they left a note promising to return. Part of the note read, "I'm sorry we missed you. Your home looks lovely."

    If you are now a fan of Piper, but you do not live in Atlanta and do not plan on visiting anytime soon, there is no need to worry. You can keep up with Piper's happenings on
