Which Pet Had the Best Week on the Internet?

Each Saturday, we'll comb the week's celebrity pet news and declare which animal had the best week. Feel free to shout out suggestions on our Facebook page!


From Mishka the Talking Husky to Henri the Cat, the Web has plenty of viral animal celebrities. Now a new feline sensation has burst onto the scene.

Her name is Venus, and she's been commanding lots of media attention for her unusual coloring: one side of her face is black with a green eye, and the other half is calico with a blue eye. (Hold the Harvey Dent jokes, please.)

The cat was once a feral stray living on a dairy farm in North Carolina, but now she has a new home in Florida and is working the talk-show circuit (you can see her on the Today show in the video below). Venus has 40,000 fans on Facebook, and one of her YouTube videos has been watched more than a million times. Not bad for a cat who's probably never seen herself in the mirror!
