Leapin’ Cats, it’s Leap Day!

In celebration of Leap Day, we’ve gathered an award-winning collection of Leaping Cat GIFs! Some of these are #catfails, some of these are #catwins, but all of them are pure GIF gold… (Caution: do not try this at home!)

Can this cat complete the elusive French Door Leap, the triple axel of cat leaps? Yes it can! Gold medal!

This lackluster leap could be considered a #catfail, but this orange tabby is so cute, we’ll give it an honorable mention.

Are these cats identical quintuplets running around in circles? Or is this some sort of clever special effect? It’s a mystery…. we’ll never know… but we are feeling a bit hypnotized. We’re giving this GIF infinity blue ribbons!

Oh my goodness, you’ve gotta be kitten me. This sweet baby followed its heart, and believed in its dreams, and it is getting a teeny tiny trophy for its adorable efforts. You’ll get up on that counter someday, and when you do, we’ll be cheering you on!

Back hand spring! Layout! Full Twist! Pike! Tuck! Half Twist! Triple Lutz! Triple Salchow! And a perfect landing! Tens across the board!!!

We’re giving this GIF a Daytime Emmy, since this has inspired us to spend more time in a beanbag.

This GIF receives Three Michelin Stars for innovation in cooking techniques!

Oh the suspense… will she leap? Won’t she? And what is happening under that blanket? This GIF is basically an art house horror suspense thriller, and it has won an Oscar! The cat would like to thank her manager, her 14 brothers and sisters, and the film studio for taking a chance on an unknown kitten.

UGH, MOM, you’re embarrassing me in front of my friends!!! This GIF does NOT win the Teen Choice Award.

Oh, the twists, the turns, the drama! This started as a #catwin, and ended as a #catfail. We laughed, we cried, we learned something new, and all things considered, we’ll never forget this journey. Can you believe this GIF has won the Nobel Prize for Literature?

The World’s Tiniest Animals!

Here at BunnySlippers.com, we love all creatures great and small!  Have you ever wondered what the smallest animals are?  We’ve gathered up some of the world’s tiniest and cutest critters…just for fun!  Read on if you love extreme cuteness…

The world’s smallest monkey is the Pygmy Marmoset.  These teeny monkeys spend their lives swinging through the trees of the western Amazon rainforest, and their primary food is tree sap!  Their body measures only 4-6 inches, and they weigh about 3.5 ounces.  They are also called “Finger Monkeys”…maybe you can guess why?!

Of course we had to find the world’s smallest bunny!  These li’l hoppers are Columbia Basin Pygmy Rabbits, and they’re found in the sagebrush deserts of Washington State.  They were once on the endangered species list, but the Oregon Zoo worked hard for many years to re-build the population.  These bunnies weigh less than one pound, but despite their small size, they can hop at a speed of up to 15 miles per hour!

The smallest fish in the world is called Paedocypris, and it swims through swamps and streams on the islands of Sumatra, Bintan, and Borneo.  This teeny fish measures only 0.3-0.4 inches long, and has a mostly transparent body.

The Speckled Cape Tortoise is the world’s smallest tortoise!  It lives in South Africa and Namibia, and measures only 2.4 – 3.9 inches long.  It lives in dry, rocky outcrops, and eats the tiny succulents growing in-between the rocks.  Its small size and speckled shell helps it blend into the rocks and hide from predators.

Teacup Chihuahuas are the world’s smallest dogs!  Adult dogs weigh only five pounds or less.  These dogs have been bred for small size, and can have many health problems as a result.  However, their appearance as a life-long puppy creates quite a high demand among pet owners, with some puppies selling for thousands of dollars!

The smallest frog in the world is also the smallest vertebrate in the world!  Clocking in at 0.30 inches, the Paedophryne Frog is just a tiny bit smaller than the Paedocypris fish, which once held the world record for smallest vertebrate.  These minute frogs were discovered hopping around the forests of Papua New Guinea.  They’re unique among frogs, as they never go through the tadpole stage–they hatch as small versions of the adults.  Can you imagine how tiny the babies are?!

The smallest deer in the world, the Java Mouse Deer, is also the smallest hoofed animal (or “ungulate”) in the world!  This teeny tiny deer lives in the forests of Java, and stands only 12 inches tall, weighing 2.2 – 4.4 pounds.  Fun fact: the mouse deer is considered a wise creature in Malay and Indonesian folklore, and is featured in many myths and folk stories as a cunning hero who is able to outwit its much larger enemies.

The Bee Hummingbird is the world’s smallest bird.  Measuring 2.2 inches long, and weighing only 0.069 ounces (!), these critters are found in Cuba and its surrounding islands.  These hummingbirds have beautiful iridescent jewel-toned feathers.  These busy critters can visit up to 1500 flowers per day!

Here is the nest of the Bee Hummingbird…the female hummingbird lays just two eggs at a time, each the size of a coffee bean!  The nest itself is made from cobwebs, bark, and lichen and is less than an inch wide.

Animals Swim to Beat the Heat

It’s almost time for the college basketball playoffs! On March 15, teams from around the country will wait to hear if they have made the big tournament, and where the selection committee has seeded them.

While the rest of the nation anxiously awaits the fate of their favorite team and begins to fill out their brackets, we’ve gathered up our own selection of basketball stars that might have a good shot at the top prize. That is, if the tournament allowed four-legged entrants.


If all these animals were on one team, they’d win the championship for sure! Continue reading
