Chinchilla Thrilled With Bathroom Remodel
Mr. Bagel the chinchilla is reportedly extremely happy with his recent bathroom remodel.
Friends tell The Fluffington Post that the chinchilla became pretty stressed out about money after it was discovered that he had to replace some of the iron pipes in his basement with newer PVC piping. But now that the bathroom is done, he’s pleased, even though he totally blew through his budget.
"It wouldn’t have been so bad, but he was already pretty maxed out," said longtime friend June Atwood. 
According to Atwood, Mr. Bagel had already purchased costly high end finishes for the space: gold fixtures, a large claw foot, porcelain tub, marble vanity, heated flooring. So there was very little wiggle room for unexpected costs during the renovation. 
"He got really worried when he heard about the plumbing issues," she said. "But in the end, the space is his sanctuary. So he eats off brand food pellets for a couple of years to make up the difference. He’s fine with that."

Guinea Pig Discovers “PiggyCam”
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
It was only a matter of time.
According to reports, Dexter the guinea pig has finally found the high-tech camera system installed in his cage. Sold commercially as PiggyCam, the setup allows owners and Internet users alike a rare glimpse into the piggy world.
"Yeah, that’s what the box says," said friend Jeff Cooper. "Truth is, it’s surveillance. Guinea pigs enjoy the same fourth amendment rights that we do. The ACLU would have a field day with this one. "
Others are less skeptical.
"I don’t see what the problem is, honestly" said Lauren Crump, Dexter’s owner. "I deserve to see all the cute and potentially incriminating things that piggy does when I’m not around - I wonder what he’s up to now."
Crump was forced to cut our interview short when her PiggyCam Android app began to show nothing but static.

Goat’s Bad Sportsmanship Caught on Camera
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
The Goat Rugby League is facing a scandal today, after one of its star athletes engaged in some questionable on-the-field behavior.
A freeze frame from ESPN’s coverage of the Farmyard Summer Scrum showed that after the match, winning captain Gruffman made this rude face as the opposing team left the playing field.  
“We take sportsmanship very seriously,” GRL Commissioner Ryan Aberdeen said. “Gruffman will be fined $500 and we will consider further disciplinary action if he cannot keep his emotions in check.” 
Fans were divided on the controversial photo. Some are outraged, claiming this type of poor behavior gives the sport a bad name. Others just can’t get over how funny his tongue looks.

Squirrel Squatter Evicted
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
According to sources, notorious squatter Lenny the squirrel has finally been shown the door. His latest victim tells The Fluffington Post that the eviction was a long time coming.
"He showed up one day looking for a place to stay," says Phil Suarez. "I couldn’t really say no. He was cute and his tail was really fluffy. The $900 a month rent seemed agreeable to him."
Unfortunately for Suarez, Lenny would soon prove to be one of the worst roommates ever.
"He basically just sat on the couch and ate nuts all day," says the longtime Astoria, Queens resident. "Oh yeah, and he didn’t pay rent. That was kind of the kicker. I decided to do some digging, and apparently he’d been doing this for years. I had to tell him we were through."
Lenny was reportedly cooperative, albeit irritated. 
"I guess he didn’t like me interrupting his ‘Dr. Who’ marathon," says Suarez. "But he knew what was coming. He packed his tiny suitcase and was out the door without without much fanfare. I just hope the next guy has better foresight."
