The Quack Pack Twitter has exploded this year by providing a new platform for the public to rant and communicate about the things they love. And while the 140 character updates can be mundane, they're not all meaningless. Groups like PetMD, PETA and the ASPCA now use Twitter to post useful information for their followers. And naturally, pet owners and "celebrity animals" like Jenny the Stroller Pug have added their tweets to the mix. Search tools and hash tags such as #TwitterACritter are also used to help facilitate animal adoptions. On behalf of animal lovers on Twitter, Paw Nation did some research to find the 12 most useful and entertaining animal Twitter accounts for our readers to...

"I will have my revenge." petsinclothes.com We know what you're thinking: By now you've seen so many pets in clothes that you're almost surprised when you see naked pets. Dressed pets are the norm. The novelty has worn off, and you wish people would stop bothering you about it. But what if there was a site where you could rate pictures of animals in apparel? What if your opinion could be heard? What if you could have a say in what's cute and what's humiliating? Now there is such a site: Pets in Clothes. The site runs just like that old internet staple HOT or NOT, but without the guilt of objectifying people. You simply cycle through pictures of animals in clothes and rate them between 1...

YouTube offers more than hilarious excerpts of obscure Japanese game shows and poorly warbled covers of Top 40 songs. The site now has enlisted its millions of users to submit inspiring videos to promote change on a local and global level. During the month of October, the YouTube Video Volunteers channel raiseed awareness of animal-welfare issues with inspiring and heart-wrenching videos about the importance of animal shelters, adoption and spaying/neutering pets. Celebrity guest curator Ben Stein joined regular viewers to choose the top three, which are being on YouTube's home page at the end of the month. (But you can watch them all here.) The top-rated "Apology Video," posted above,...

Cat fancying is tailor-made for the Internet. Never mind that all the things you love about your kitty – how soft she is, how she lays on your chest when you're taking a nap and how she makes that piece of string pay for its sins – are impossible to create in cyberspace. The Web is full of sites uniting communities of cat lovers, and videos and memes catering to those who find unlikely kitty behavior utterly hilarious. Know Your Meme tracks well over a dozen separate humorous cat trends, from "Keyboard Cat" -- a piano-savvy feline who turns up whenever someone is embarrassing herself -- to "Spaghetti Cat," a Zelig-like, pasta-loving kitty who even has her own theme song and music...

Atticus with the Leno. Animal Planet "Groomer Has It" put down its shears in June, but just because the cameras no longer are rolling on pet 'dos (and don'ts) doesn't mean you have to find another obsession. The marketing wizards behind the Animal Planet show decided to take to the Internets with a silly (albeit ridiculously satisfying) idea that lets you custom-design a stylish new look for your canine. Upload a photo of your pooch's visage -- or choose from the dozen provided -- and let out your inner fashionista (or, y'know, groomer) by placing on your pooch a brand-spankin'-new 'do inspired by (among others) Whoopi Goldberg, Donald Trump, or Jennifer Aniston. Doesn't Paw Nation's...
