We may know a thing or two about crazy dog names and even crazy cat names, but Zootoo rounded up the top registered pet names for other animals from horses and hamsters to fishes and ferrets. If you've ever owned different creatures (or need inspiration for future, less traditional pets), check out the findings for eight species and my special additions to each list.

I looooove webcams, and I've got some time to kill before the Fourth of July fun gets started. If you're also sitting around waiting for the food to be grilled, now's a great time to check out some live zoo action. To be fair, I've included a variety of creatures as well as three cams with baby animals . . . ummm, adoro. Go ahead, blow kisses at your screen, I'm not telling.
- Lions! My current zoo cam of choice, I love to check in to see what the baby lions are up to. Nevermind that I can't understand a single word on the site except for "live" (as this zoo is all the way in Norway), my glimpses of mama lion canoodling and caring for her four cubs are too precious to pass up.
- Giant Pandas! Classic cam with lots of action, check out the Giant Pandas live from the San Diego Zoo. There are seven pandas there which makes spotting at least one fairly likely. And don't forget the other cams of the Apes, Polar Bears, and Elephants afterwards.

Apparently it's toy mania here on PetSugar, 'cause I have yet another toy post for you today! With so many of you letting me in on your pet's toy collection, I think it's safe to say we have the doggies and kitties covered. But what about the little guys? I know there are more than a few rabbits, ferrets, and gerbils out there (to name a few) so they shouldn't be left out of the playtime fun. I've rounded up a few of my fave small animal toys, including this cute Race Track ($14) for hamsters! Just put your little critter in a specially matched toy car (complete with a running wheel) and off he goes — exercise plus fun equals one happy hamster!

Although doggies may be the first pet that you might think of dressing up in little coats and jackets, they aren't the only ones with lines of couture clothing to spend your cash on. I never would have thought of it on my own, but cuddly ferrets seem to be a natural choice to show off their energy and personality with some savvy duds. Although, I'm not sure how many people would see this hip Camo Hoodie from Ferret Couture, since ferrets are mostly indoor animals, but it's totally cute nonetheless coming with a coordinating leash and harness. Remember, dogs are not the only animals that can be walked! Ferret Couture is based in the UK, but I think it's cool enough to spread the love from across the pond.

Did you know that 77 years ago today, our Congress officially made the Star-Spangled Banner our national anthem? Some might assume that the day dedicated to our nation's song is in September – the month the song was written. But March it is and, honestly, I don't care what holiday it is, I love them all.
Especially when I get to take North shopping for festive gear! Star-spangled fashions aren't only for humans, Flag Day, and July 4th, you can reserve the right to show your patriotism any time of the year. Incorporate this Cat Collar ($7) into your feline's wardrobe – it's easy to find at your local pet superstore, plus you can use it year round! If you want to don the red, white, and blue hues today, find some festive fashions to get your pets in on the action when you read more
