  • 25 Cats Who Are Really Glad You Finally Put Up The Christmas Tree.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_177129_lifebuzz-ad40b4f836452a949c611807926aedc5-thumb_800

    The most wonderful time of the year is here! Many of us naturally get excited for the holidays. But what's better than humans getting excited for Christmas: cats getting excited for Christmas (or more so the Christmas decorations).

    Cats are curious creatures and they never fail to remind us that. It's their curiosity and priceless facial expressions that make us love them so much.

    Take a look at some cats below reacting to Christmas and Christmas decor. Some of them look so in awe, they're almost too cute to look at.

    #1. "Just look at it… it's full of stars."

    You know your cat is mesmerized when its eyes go this large.

    #2. "I'm supposed to be the surprise you find in the tree."

    Well of course, how did we not know that. My deepest apologies.

    #3. "Don't worry, I got you. I'll make sure there's no presents hidden in here."

    Is that really what your intentions are?

    #4. "We need a longer extension cord."

    Good thing cats have 9 lives.

    "We need a longer extension cord."

    Lisa Be

    #5. "I don't think they see me. Maybe if I just stay still for a little while longer."

    When your cat thinks he or she has outsmarted you by pretending to be a statue.

    #6. "It's so shiny. It's so mesmerizing."

    When your cat gets lost in a daze from the Christmas lights.

    #7. "Isn't this just the most gorgeous thing you've ever seen?"

    When one can't handle something's beauty.

    #8. "There's shiny mice all over this tree and I'm going to catch each and every one of them."

    Don't mess with a cat that's on the prowl/hunt.

    #9. "I think I'll just hang out here for awhile, nobody's bothering me here."

    He probably could get away with hiding in there for awhile.

    #10. “IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!”

    This cat's face literally just made my day.

    #11. "I don't care about your rules. I'm going to climb it if I want to."

    They just never listen, no matter what.

    #12. "This is my spot now. This is my new home."

    And he looks stubborn enough to stay exactly where he is for the rest of the season.

    #13. "I approve of this sparkly tree. You may now proceed with it."

    Thanks cat, didn't know we needed your approval.

    #14. "I'm almost home stretch! They'll never expect a thing."

    Oh, don’t try to think you can get out of this and no one’s noticing.

    "I'm almost home stretch! They'll never expect a thing."

    #15. "This is where I'm staying because I'm not quite sure how to get down. And that's ok."

    At least he admits to his faults.

    #16. "I am the angel in this house hence I belong at the top of this tree."

    I don't think any other tree topper will be as appropriate as this one.

    #17. "Ok we'll take turns. You keep watch for now."

    It takes two cats to successfully raid a tree.

    #18. "Oh hi, didn't see you there."

    The eyes of a cat who has just been caught red handed.

    #19. "But doesn't this tree make my fur look more pretty?"

    I do have to admit, it makes your fur glisten.

    #20. "Oh hi, you're home early. Nothing going on here. Just inspecting the ornaments."

    Doesn't look like a whole lotta inspecting is going on.

    #21. "Stuck? Nobody's stuck here. Stuck in the holiday spirit, yeah."

    Nice save there buddy, but you ain't fooling anyone.

    #22. "I wonder how it tastes... mmmm... yeah, not as good as I was hoping."

    Cats these days are too curious.

    "I wonder how it tastes... mmmm... yeah, not as good as I was hoping."

    #23. "This Christmas tree is my Everest, and I will conquer it.”

    Now that is one determined kitty.

    #24. "Can you just wake me up when Santa Claus arrives?"

    Now this is one lazy Christmas cat.

    "Can you just wake me up when Santa Claus arrives?"

    #25. "Omg, it's just hanging there!"

    Not sure what's so astonishing about this scene.

  • This Cat Was Trapped In A Bank And Rescued With The Help Of Passersby.

    Over the years, our lifestyles have changed dramatically, and beyond recognition, particularly when compared to beings of primitive times. With the help of the latest technologies, we might've become more socially aware and privy to instant information. But hasn’t this increased usage of technology made us ignorant of our own surroundings in a way?

    We’re often so focused on our work that we end up missing out so many things that are going on in front of our eyes. It may not even be our fault; as it’s just how our lives are designed these days and you must adapt to the way things work.

    We've seen numerous incidents that depict how our ignorance can create problems for not only our fellow human beings, but also for innocent little animals.

    We’re well aware of how restless cats can get, even though most of their day involve them sleeping around and eating heavily.

    But cats also suffer from mood swings like we do, believe it or not. There are times when these felines roam around without even making a sound. Sometimes you don’t even realize when and how they entered a room!

    To keep up with their ever-changing mood, people came up with the concept of ‘indoor cat’ and ‘outdoor cat’.

    However, indoor cats are considered to be healthier, with a longer lifespan. But considering the freedom cats need, their owners let them rove around, hoping the cats would return home in search of food or a place to sleep. Sometimes, this works out great, as the cat truly feels at home with their owner, and keeps coming back every time. Other times, they end up getting “lost.”

    A kitty was strolling outside a bank, and decided to get in. Then, the situation got a bit complex, to say the least.

    We can only blame the timing of this incident as it was already closing time when the kitty decided to enter the bank. The bank workers, being oblivious to the cat’s presence, didn’t realize they were locking her inside the bank.

    Later on, the cat attempted to let anyone notice her, hoping someone was still inside the bank.

    The poor feline stood for a while on the bank’s entrance and waited for people to notice her. Fortunately, the cat’s efforts didn’t go unnoticed for too long. Jaimee, a second year student from Liverpool, saw the cat and took a few pictures.

    In his attempts to help the cat, Jaimee posted the pictures on his social media accounts.

    He was hoping that someone might recognize the cat and come rescue it. Jaimee wrote, “Out walking through town and we’ve just found a cat stuck in a bank.”

    In his attempts to help the cat, Jaimee posted the pictures on his social media accounts.

    In his various interviews, Jamiee narrated the entire incident, and how he came to the poor feline's rescue.

    Jaimee told, “The RSPCA told us to leave a note in the bank explaining that the cat was trapped in there overnight and to make sure that he is safely taken home. The bank reopened at 9:30am this morning, and I haven’t found out anything but I imagine he’s safe now. We also talked to the restaurant next door to the bank and they said that they always see that cat coming into the shops around there, so the people there are quite familiar with it.”

    But that was not the only response that Jamie got. Hiis post was retweeted 350 times! Talk about being popular!

    A woman named Eleanor, who fell in love with the cat, volunteered to adopt it after hearing the news. But unfortunately after seeing the collar around the cat’s neck, she realized it belonged to someone else.

    While we do know this furry little angel already has a family, it's nice to know that had it not belonged to someone else, it would've been adopted. We're glad that the cat was rescued safely in the end.

  • 20 Selfies That Need To Be Stopped Before Someone Gets Hurt.

    Some of the most liked photos on Instagram are selfies, or photos taken by oneself. In summer 2016, Selena Gomez was named the queen of Instagram for generating over 4 million likes on a single selfie.

    Taking a selfie seems simple enough. While you can snap one with any camera, most phones have two cameras, which means you don't even have to stretch your arm out that far to get yourself in the shot. You can also use a selfie stick.

    There are some of us who take the selfie game to new heights. Adventurers and daredevils, some risking their lives in their process, capture stunning scenes that many of us will never see in person while others redefine ridiculous by pulling out their camera at the wrong time (like in the middle of a fire).

    Here are some of the best and worst selfies ever taken. How's your selfie game?

    Just when you thought you were feeling sluggish, this guy shows you the true meaning. Now, you feel them on your face, don’t you?

  • 10 Reasons Not To Have Sex With Marco Polo (Or Anyone Else In The Middle Ages).

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_177077_lifebuzz-ba83758359c30f32ae8d2f34fa801bf6-thumb_800

    In the fifth century, Saint Augustine wrote influentially on the matters of abortion, contraception, and sex. He argued that contraception could change the nature of individuals and relationships.

    In Marriage and Concupiscence, he wrote, "I am supposing, then, although you are not lying [with your wife] for the sake of procreating offspring, you are not for the sake of lust obstructing their procreation by an evil prayer or an evil deed.

    "Those who do this, although they are called husband and wife, are not; nor do they retain any reality of marriage, but with a respectable name cover a shame.

    " … I dare to say that either the wife is in a fashion the harlot of her husband or he is an adulterer with his own wife.”

    Although the use of birth control and the practice of abortion are heavily debated today, it is not a new argument. Continue reading to learn about how couples in the Middle Ages, as well as other parts of history, protected themselves during intercourse. While there are many graphic examples, we've selected ones that are not so different from today's methods.

    The history of sex is interesting and deserving of its own library.

    This includes the history of abortion, contraception, and protection against STIs. Take, for example, the Middle Ages. During this time, from the 5th to the 15th century, the Catholic Church was the only church, which meant that there existed a prevailing right-to-life principle and the idea that intercourse was meant for procreation (these principles remain strong for many individuals today).

    But it seems the stronger the rules, the stronger the opposition. Here are some ways couples avoided pregnancy during or around this time.

    The history of sex is interesting and deserving of its own library.

    No, coitus interruptus isn't a modern invention.

    This method of avoiding pregnancy sounds more like a spell out of Harry Potter than anything else, but don’t get too excited.

    Coitus interruptus remains a popular method today, but you probably know it better as the “pull-out method,” when the man withdraws just before ejaculating.

    It’s just as effective today as it was back then, which is exactly why we don’t recommend it.

    No, coitus interruptus isn't a modern invention.

    Enjoy all night romps with a special type of amulet, if you aren't bothered by the material.

    What if you could strap an amulet ’round your thighs or neck to prevent pregnancy? Sounds a little risqué, doesn’t it? But don’t forget to read the fine print. In the Middle Ages, weasel testicles were used to create special amulets for this purpose.

    If you aren’t into weasel testicles, an amulet made of bone from the right side of a black cat or mule earwax could do the trick.

    "Pennyroyal Tea" isn't just a popular song by Nirvana.

    A flowering plant, pennyroyal looks small and harmless, even pleasant, but it is actually very powerful. It’s been used for everything from flavoring to medicine.

    Pennyroyal tea was also popular for regulating menstruation. If consumed in large portions or pure forms of oil, pennyroyal can cause abortion (Cue in Kurt Cobain singing “Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea / Distill the life that’s inside of me”). It can also cause multiple organ failure and death.

    The people of the Middle Ages weren’t the only ones to use this plant. Historians say that ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians incorporated the pennyroyal into their customs.

    You can still purchase an ounce or a pound if you wish today.

    Desperate times called for self-induced abortions.

    These acts of desperations would later be referred to as coat-hanger abortions. Soranus of Ephesus, a Greek physician from the 1st/2nd century AD, wrote that women would ride horses or carry objects in order to induce their own abortions. This was called being “shaken.”

    Was the rhythm method practiced in the Middle Ages?

    It's widely accepted that the rhythm method is one of the least reliable forms of birth control today, but what is it? The rhythm method is when a couple keeps track of the women's menstrual cycles and avoids sex during her most fertile days.

    So, did medieval couples practice fertility awareness? It's more a matter of speculation than fact. In 388, Saint Augustine mentioned periodic abstinence in one of his texts.

    It was also possible to learn about it through other cultures. There was evidence that the Greeks and Byzantines had knowledge of calendar-based contraceptives, and it appeared in a Chinese sex manual dated around 600.

    Breastfeeding may have been used as a natural form of birth control.

    Noble and upper-class women were expected to bear healthy children, but they were not expected to breastfeed as the Church advised against it. The reason for this is because breastfeeding can delay the menstrual cycle, which was frowned upon—a woman's fertility should be restored as quickly as possible.

    Lower-class women, however, did breastfeed for about a year because it was affordable and convenient. So, whether they planned it or not, some couples used this form of birth control.

    In later years, historians say that many couples took advantage of it despite religious teachings.

    In early history, condoms were not used to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

    Instead, the main purpose of a condom was to protect against venereal diseases. In an article titled "The story of the condom," published in the Indian Journal of Urology, researchers say that the first use of a condom was by King Minos of Crete. His wife, Pasiphae used a goat's bladder in her vagina, because she believed that his semen was harmful (it had killed his mistresses). Animal bladders were commonly used by other cultures, such as the Ancient Romans.

    Silphium, believed to be a variety of giant fennel, was a popular drug and form of birth control in the ancient world.

    This heart-shaped plant was used to cure a number of ailments, from warts to indigestion. It was also used as a seasoning. Ancient Roman women would imbibe in Silphium juice to prevent pregnancy. It was also used as a form of abortion.

    When life gives you lemons, make lemon douches?

    A recent study published in Agriculture and Natural Resources found that lemon juice, as well as other types of juices, are effective as fertility-regulation agents. But ancient communities already knew that.

    Ancient Jewish couples sometimes used sponges soaked in lemon juices, inserted into the vagina, as a form of birth control. Lemon and lime juice douches were also applied after intercourse in other cultures, but it wasn't as effective as having a pessary during coitus.

  • By Law Dogs MUST Be In Carriers On NY Subway… LOL At These Funny Solutions.

    Some time ago New York City banned dogs from riding on the subway unless they fit into a small carrier or small bag. It makes sense as public transportation is for human beings and it’s really a little sad that there had to be an official announcement about it. There are tons of dog lovers out there and that’s just fine, but if you have to bring them with you somewhere, another mode of transportation should be sought out. There are just certain places dogs shouldn’t be unless they are an official service dog.

    People in The Big Apple quickly got wise to the new rules and found ways around them. Even some pretty decent sized dogs have been trained to ride in bags now. It leads to some funny pictures, especially the ones that are in backpacks. Some dogs love going for rides and you can see the happiness in their faces in a lot of these photos.

    This is only possible to do with medium to small sized dogs however. If you own a Bull Mastiff or Doberman Pincer you might be hard pressed to find a bag that fits within the rules. Check out some of these content pooches.

    #1. Who needs a treat, I love going for the ride!

    #2. I DID NOT pick out this print!

    #3. Yes it's a beagle in a bag, not a bagel.

    #4. Here we go again, another subway ride.

    #5. This guy looks focused on his destination.

    #6. Yeah that's right, I have my Master trained well!

    #7. I better get a good treat after this!

    #8. Are you sure this is the right train?

    #9. What are you looking at? Clearly this wasn't my idea!

    #10. I hope he realizes I've gotta go bad!

    #11. What? You have a coat on. Why shouldn't I get to wear one too?

    #12. I got your back dad!

    #13. I picked out the bag my self! Good choice right?

    #14. I hope she gets back soon with that pretzel!

    #15. We have to go over there!

    #16. Hell yeah, I got an upgrade!
