5 Cute Animal Pictures Of The Week: Cat Gatecrashes Fashion Show And Licks Bum

Plus... a shock Croc.

It’s been almost a week since the clocks went back. In that space of time our sleep cycles have gone awry, everyone in the UK seems to be blighted by the world’s worst cold and the weather is relentlessly wet. But don’t let that put a dampener on things. It’s time, dear friends, for animals of the week...

1. Cat Or Crow?!

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Well, we hate to burst your bubble, but it’s actually a cat. Robert Maguire practically blew the internet up this week when he shared a picture of a ‘crow’ which – in a shocking twist – turned out to be a black moggy looking up with one eye shut.

We’re shook.

2. The Croc Shocker.

We can’t spoil this for you. Surprise factor = through the roof. Click on the tweet, you know you want to.

3. Cat Gatecrashes Catwalk.

The nonchalant butt-licking... the pawing at the model’s leg as she glides past... zero f*cks are given by this stray moggy at an Istanbul fashion show.

4. Spooky Squirrel.

Yes Halloween might be over but that hasn’t stopped us from LOLing hard at this inquisitive squirrel who fell for this brilliantly-masterminded trap.

Furry belleh + scary Scream mask = internet gold.

5. This Utterly Mesmerising Octopus.

Aptly named the Dumbo Octopus (thanks to the large ear-like fins on the side of its noggin) this creature of the ocean was spotted by scientists recently off the Californian shore. They’re pretty elusive, hanging around the ocean floors at depths of 9,000-13,000 feet.
