The Daily Squee: An Adorable Compilation Of Cat Videos

I simply can’t resist a quality cat video and this compilation of the best kitties the year has seen so far is well worth the nine minutes it will take to watch it. You read that right. Nine minutes. [YouTube]

10 Things I Want To See In Season Two of #OITNB

If you are a rational person alive today, you were likely beyond excited for the season two premiere of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black this morning. Since the show’s premiere season last July, the show has been lauded for its revolutionary depiction of women, and for good reason. As my favourite culture bloggers Tom and Lorenzo so brilliantly put it: [...]Show More Summary

How Feminists Watch Commercials

Actually, yes, this does accurately sum up how I watch both shaving cream commercials and the E! channel. For the sake of comediennes Akilah Hughes and Suzanne Hitchman, I hope other feminists are able to laugh at this, too. [YouTub...

Study: Wedding Traditions Are Changing Sloooowly

Weddings may be full of age-old “rules,” but according to a new poll, views on strong-held nuptial traditions are slowly changing. A new Harris Poll surveyed 2,300 Americans this April to find out where they stand on old-school ideas about how heterosexual weddings are supposed to go down. Marriages might be changing, but weddings? Not [...]

Movie Looks: Can’t Hardly Wait

Last time I did one of these, I encouraged everyone to revisit the ’80s through Girls Just Want to Have Fun. Now, if that Columbia undergrad rocking the Sketchers platform shoes on the subway was any indication, we have cycled through fashion and have hit the late ’90s, early ’00s. If I needed a refresher on what was worn during... Read More

When Your Dog is Destroying Your Sex Life

At first I wasn’t sure if this belonged as a sex column or as a pet column. You’d be amazed how many people comment that they are glad their dog feels comfortable on their bed, but that maybe their dog feels a little too comfortable, if we get their drift. And, although I don’t really want to weigh in on... Read More

Let’s Give It All We’ve Got Today, Much Like This Baby Goat

The Frisky’s Summer 2014 Calendar!

What are you looking forward to this summer? Sure, it may not be Oscar season, but there are plenty of movies, books, music, TV shows, and holidays we’re jazzed about. We’ll skip the Tom Cruise and Ninja Turtles flicks—there’s plenty of art on its way that’s more up our alley. Have a look at The [...]

Caregiving: Coconut Oil, Cats, and Yoga

There is a tub of coconut oil sitting on the kitchen table that I eye with suspicion whenever I pass, as if it might spontaneously start singing the virtues of a paleo diet or its virgin status. Why spontaneously, I don’t know. I wouldn’t want to deny the bananas nearby their chance as a warm-up act. It started with the... Read More

The Beautiful Story Of Ryland Whittington: A 7-Minute Guidebook For Parenting A Transgender Child

“Wow” is all I have to say after watching this beautiful video that tells the story of Ryland Whittington, a bright, fun, loving little boy who happens to be transgender. Ryland’s story is fairly typical of many transgender kids — around age 3, he started rejecting a traditionally feminine presentation and self-identifying as a boy. [...]

The Daily Squee: Baby White Tigers At An Austrian Zoo

There’s nothing more exciting than a newborn white tiger … except five newborn white tigers. The White Zoo in Kernoff, Austria was an embarrassment of riches on Monday when the felines, who were born on April 25, met the public. The zoo’s owner said they were pleased when four healthy Bengel cubs were born and [...]

Finally, A Scientific Excuse For Netflix Binges: There Might Be A Couch Potato Gene

There are some people who seem to be physically incapable of sitting still, whose idea of a great Saturday morning is waking up early, running 10 miles, and pumping some iron. There are other people who seem to be physically incapable of leaving the couch, whose idea of a great Saturday is sleeping in til noon [...]

See Christian Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss & Others Before They Were On “Mad Men”

We knew Elisabeth Moss played the president’s daughter on “The West Wing” and Jon Hamm once promised a lady a “fabulous foot massage” on a now-cancelled dating show. Thanks to this BuzzFeed, we now know that the rest of the “Mad Men” cast has been under our noses this whole time. Well, if you watched [...]

Levi’s CEO Wants You To Stop Washing Your Jeans — And He Has A Point!

Chip Bergh (best name), the CEO of Levi Strauss & Co, made major waves earlier this week when he implored people to stop washing their jeans.

Cool Or Creepy: New App Lets You Embed Yourself In The Life Of A Stranger

We all got stern warnings about stranger danger when we were kids, but according to a research group at MIT, we could all use more contact with strangers, not less. That’s why they developed a new iPhone app called 20 Day Stranger, which connects you and a stranger and lets you anonymously observe each other’s [...]
