We’re gonna go out on a limb here and say that -right or wrong- a lot of people just don’t like Kim Kardashian. So what’s a uber media savvy woman with a PR problem to do? What do people love more than anything? What is so blindingly adorable that it’ll totally distract from the fact that you’ve turned your very existence into a multimedia brand? The answer of course, is kittens.
Kim was spotted strolling the Miami boardwalk with little sister Khloe and an adorable white puffball of a kitty, called “Mercy.” The sisters introduced the teacup persian cat yesterday on Twitter, but it was so cute we assumed it had to be some new Pixar character. But seeing these photos, Mercy is scarily real and we are totally caught in the vortex of cuteness. Gahhhhhhhh! We’re totally out of snarky sarcastic comments, you guys! Look at it’s little tiny face! It’s big blue eyes! Damn you, Kardashians!!
If you’ve ever had any doubt that Kim Kardashian is a public relations genius, head on down to the gallery below.

When we first saw a photo of this poster popping up around LA, our first thought was “Wow, we really would have pegged Woody Harrelson as a cat person.” But it’s clear from the flyer that this dude REALLY loves his dog. Psychotically so, it seems. “Who Stole My F#@king Shih Tzu!?” the poster passionately screams before launching into a long, rambling, manifesto-like rant about the “beautiful f#@king perfect dog” known as Bonny. The pooch apparently “has a heart bigger than a lion” and “lives only to love,” but was recently stolen “by some horrible, terrible piece of s#*t who doesn’t have an ounce of joy, or decency or kindness in them.” Ouch!
“Bonny (NOT Bonnie) has been a faithful companion, more loyal than any person ever could be,” the distraught owner continues in the text. “And has brought me peace and solace and joy in a world filled with filth and hatred and evil and hate and misery.” The message starts to become more and more unhinged, climaxing with “I LOVE HIM! I LOVE THIS F#@KING DOG MORE THAN MY GIRLFRIEND!” It was around this point that we started to wonder what the hell was going on with this thing, and we weren’t sure whether to laugh or cry. The plot thickened when we saw the mysterious name Charlie Costello in the contact information.
After some snooping, it all came together. The posters are part of a guerrilla promotional campaign for Harrelson’s new movie Seven Psychopaths, which made it’s debut at the Toronto film festival last weekend. In the movie, Woody’s character Charlie Costello gets his beloved dog stolen. So thankfully the real Woody Harrelson is not down a pet. But fans of the actor (or of dogs) have been going to the fictional Charlie Costello’s twitter page to get updates on Bonny, and band together in their love of shih tzus.
Believe us when we say, we really, really want these depressing Robsten headlines to stop arriving in our inboxes/news feeds/brain-implanted gossip receptors. But as long as they come, it’s our job to report them, with a bit of a reality check, of course. Today’s comes from RadarOnline, which reports that the latest bit of collateral damage in the possible breakup is Bear, the mixed-breed dog that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart adopted from a shelter in New Orleans.
“After Rob moved his things out of their Los Angeles apartment, he then told Kristen he wanted Bear,” an insider reportedly told the gossip site. “She was heartbroken — they adopted Bear together and she always felt that he was their little baby.”
Miley Cyrus wasn’t about to let Josh Hutcherson hold onto his spot as owner of the cutest celebrity pup for very long, even if he is bf Liam’s co-star. We’re certain that’s why she decided to add to her pack and adopt Happy, who she says was left in a cardboard box outside of Walmart. “He’s a little boy were not 100% the breed were think Rottweiler Beagle mix ,” Miley tweeted yesterday, along with a number of pics of the heartmeltingly adorable dog. She already had her hands full with Yorkie Lila Blue, bulldog Ziggy (the pup she bought Liam for his bday last year) and husky (we think) Floyd, but something tells us she’s not the only one who has to pick up after them.
Mama Miley wasted no time in playing matchmaker for Happy, since she took him along to her hairdresser’s place and introduced him to little Joey here.
Is that not enough cuteness for this Thursday morning? Then here you go:

Chris Brown has been on PETA’s bad side as recently as last year for wearing fur; now he’s is in trouble for selling adorable puppies! Aw! Now what could be wrong with some wholesome baby pit bull distribution? According to PETA, everything. Early this week Brown’s mom Joyce Hawkins tweeted “CHRIS BROWN PUPPIES FOR SALE” and a link to CB Breeds, a site featuring some Chris Brown glamor shots. Oh, and seven pit bull puppies for sale for $1,000 a pup. “There is no such thing as a responsible breeder while wonderful dogs are being put down in animal shelters across the country for lack of a good home,” PETA told E! when they found out about Brown’s side gig. “This is a moneymaking scheme, and Brown will count the suckers who fall for it as he counts the money on the way to the bank.” Well, those “suckers” also still get an adorable puppy. Did PETA see that photo on the left up there? We’re pretty sure some people would pay $1,000 for that photo alone.
Chris Brown‘s publicist has since denied the accusation that the singer is “breeding” dogs to sell, insisting he and his family were just placing a litter of puppies born to a family dog in Virginia. “He loves animals, especially dogs,” his rep claims. That’s PETA for you, though: if they’re not electing a new, perpetually nude spokecelebrity, they’re going after celebs for their questionable animal-related decisions. Be glad you’re not a member of the Kardashian family, Chris, or it could be both at the same time!

If you could hear us right now, you might suspect we’d run a marathon up the side of Mt. Everest. If you could see us, however, you’d know we would never, ever, ever do that, and are instead hyperventilating over how insanely cute Josh Hutcherson looks with his new puppy in these photos on ONTD. “Way to go Josh! Josh just adopted a Blue Pit puppy from a pit rescue!!,” the Hunger Games actor’s official fan Facebook page said today. “Thanks to Josh, he now has a full stomach, warm bed and a loving owner!” Seriously, would you just look at those little eyes and that adorable nose!? And the dog’s cute too! Just kidding! Just kidding again; we really do want to eat both their faces, but in a nice way.
Of course, Josh isn’t the first famous dog owner to give us a cuteness-induced asthma attack. In fact, he is now one of many in our 30 (now 31) cutest celeb pets gallery. Just as a warning: if you go through this entire gallery, you will squee so much you lose consciousness.
We think it’s safe to say that Snooki is most well-known for getting dreezy, commandeering the smush room at will and indulging in a Shore Shower whenever the need and/or opportunity arises. When drinking and (hopefully) the UTIs fade into the background now that the Jersey Shore star is with child, what will be left is a bundle of fun who would actually be a pretty awesome mom to have. Or…at least an awesome mom to know.
For example, wouldn’t you love it if your best friend’s mother put on her high-waisted slacks, slipped into her gold-tipped wedges and walked her lavender dog to a psychic, as Snooks did this week in Jersey City while filming her upcoming spin-off? This makes us so glad girl signed on for Jersey Shore Season 6. See, you can be sober and pregnant and still be amazing. Just give that woman a rabbit costume and a box of Clinique samples and she’ll be tearing up until the moment she enters the maternity ward, and probably after. And if it gets to be too much, there’s always Auntie JWoww, who can always provide you with some much needed sanity. Plus she can mentor you in strength training!

What is the internet if not a series of tubes designed to bring you cute photos of miniature animals whenever you need them? Miley Cyrus did her part for the good of the Interweb today by non-stop tweeting photos of her many teeny dogs. “Thank you @peta for all of our toys xo Lila Blue,” Miley gushed along with shot after shot of pets Lila, Floyd and Ziggy. In one puppy post, Miley even swooned, “The best kisses to wake up to are from this boy right here!” So take off your overly tight work shoes, collapse onto your couch, and take a moment to unwind with some little doggie ears and faces. You can thank Miley Cyrus later.

Be prepared to see plenty of punked up cats and dogs around your neighbourhood. Especially if your neighbours are Bret MichaelsÃ‚Â fans! In a move that totally seems unlikely, yet pretty cool, to us, PetSmart asked the rocker to create the ‘Bret Michaels Pets Rock‘ line of accessories for them. You’ll have to wait and see what he cooks up, though — the collection is due to be released next year.
Bret explained why he decided to go ahead with the designs, saying, “… As a dedicated pet owner myself, this is a natural partnership for me, and I can’t wait to unveil the collection. I know my own pets rock, and I wanted to design a line of pet products every bit as fun and cool as they are.” We’re expecting cowboy hats and bandanas, guys. Ã‚Â What do you reckon?
Hey girl, Ryan Gosling’s Jimmy Fallon interview was super cute last night, probably because he knew you’d be watching it today. While visit the show to promote his upcoming movie Crazy, Stupid, Love, your boyfriend brought his floppy dog George along to the set, complete with a sock over his leg to prevent him from chewing on his foot. Ryan even taught that dog to eat an adorable apple as opposed to a big sloppy bowl of Alpo for you. The only reason we don’t think Ryan is a cyborg programmed to make us fall in love with him are those loafers. No man can be completely perfect.
If earlier this week you were wishing you were a middle-aged weather man after Ryan Gosling lifted Al Roker a la Dirty Dancing, today you’ll wish you were a Turkish bath employee, who’s stomach apparently got wedged in Ryan’s mouth during a scrub-down, according to his anecdote. ““Don’t judge me, but you know how when you eat something weird your brain sends your tongue to investigate?” Gosling timidly admitted. Oh, to be that hairy, sweaty man-belly for a day!
