In what may be my favorite scene of The Back-up Plan, Zoe's absolutely adorable disabled doggie snatches her pregnancy stick and holds on to it with his teeth while her fella waits outside the restroom. Though the situation is particularly comical (and dramatized), pet lovers are never strangers to embarrassing moments. So, I want to know: What's the most humiliating thing your pet has every done? (If it's extra embarrassing you can log out and leave your comment anonymously!)
Beauty expert and classy Catwoman — in that meowww kinda way — BellaSugar explains just how two-riffic life is with her couple of cuties for our Pet Profiles series. Share your own pet tales in our Pet Profiles group!
PetSugar: When did you get your cats and what are their breeds?
BellaSugar: I adopted Minou on December 31, 2005. He was a wonderful way to bring in a new year. He's a tabby from the tough streets of Chicago. A few months later, wee Milo came along. He's a Munchkin, which is a breed with short legs. He definitely has a Napoleon complex.
PetSugar: What's your daily cat routine?
BellaSugar: Milo is my alarm clock. He saunters through the house around 6am, meowing until he wakes me. It's cute and annoying at the same time. Then both cats get on the bed and demand attention. The moment my feet hit the floor, they whine until they're fed. Then there is litter to be cleaned. It's very glamorous, all of it.
PetSugar: What's your cat’s favorite food, pastime, and treat?
BellaSugar: The boys' palates are not so sophisticated. They prefer dry food to wet, unlike most cats I've known. Sometimes they get crazy and have some tuna. Lately, they are obsessed with the mosquito hawks in the apartment. Minou chirps at them a lot, but both cats are not the most effective hunters.

I'm hoping to become a pet parent in the next few months. I haven't settled on a breed yet, though I adore Pomeranians, Boxers and American Eskimo Dogs (although I don't have room for an Eskimo dog at the moment). I've been thinking about names to build excitement and settled on one of the two below. I'm aiming for silly and fun. Which do you prefer?
Well, well, well, there's still time to get all cleaned up even if you put off your weekend chores like I did. In addition to the plethora of surprising cleansers found in the kitchen, there are even more in the bathroom and laundry room. In fact, I'll bet you have some already in there. Sop up this knowledge and start the slideshow.
Football season's over but so what? After all, practice makes perfect, or should I say pawfect for this cute smooshy who's well on his way to receiving a canine receiver title. Look at him go in the video below!
The film, which is based on a Great Depression-era story by author Sara Gruen, will follow a veterinary student who leaves his schooling after his parents are killed and instead takes up with the circus. Tai hails from the Have Trunk Will Travel conservation and will play the stubborn elephant who seems untrainable until Pattinson's character wins her over. The HTWT website says Tai is "very intelligent and loves to take naps and play". She also "likes people and every other elephant she sees".
One thing is for certain — sharing the screen with Pattinson is no peanuts part!
