Bunny Rabbit Cafe in Nogoya, Japan, is in the business of bunnies. For $1 a minute you can cuddle and play with one of their hard- working staff rabbits. OR you can bring your own bunny (byob) to have it meet new friends. The owners of the cafe thought of the idea since many people in Nogoya can’t own pets in their apartments. 

I love this idea! I hope someone in New York opens up a Bunny Cafe. Imagine how much happier people would be during rush hour! For similar videos visit the It News YouTube page.

For real. It’s out there, in Cali. Check out designer Jonathan Adler’s contribution to Barbie’s life- size home made to celebrate her 50th birthday. I can’t believe this thing has been around since May and I’ve only just seen it!

Yes, we all thought spiders were evil, carnivorous creatures who wanted nothing more  than to suck the life out of others, but in Central America the first hippie spider has been discovered, spreading peace, love and…. vegetarianism?!

The Bagheera Kiplingi is the first spider known to man who eats mostly plants! (Maybe “vegitegan” is the right term for this spider). It also lives in harmony with other spiders of its kind. The things you find on wordpress blogs and “Science Daily.”

"Bagheera Kiplingi." The world's first known vegetarian spider.

In New York we are so saturated with billboards, posters and neon signs that it is seldom to see an advertisement that really gets you… So when I saw these striking ads for  “Animal Alliance NYC” as a dog lover my heart melted I had to share. Check out this creative campaign, which combines a heartfelt idea and beautiful photographs within its simplicity:
