Cats Declare Victory in War on Wrapping Paper
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
It was a long, hard fight, but on Saturday, Roswell and Rask were able to say with certainty that they had conquered their most diligent adversary.
"Yeah, that wrapping paper is as good as gone," says Debra Flack, the cats’ owner. “We’ve tried our best to keep it from them, but there was no saving it this time.”
Roswell and Rask gained a significant foothold last March during the Battle of Timmy’s Eighth Birthday, when they laid waste to several enemy outposts.
"We almost switched to gift bags after that," says Flack. "Looking back, we really should have. Cats don’t like bags, do they?"

Puppy Can’t Break Soda Habit
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Scraps the dog has been trying for months to cut back on his caffeine and sugar intake. But he’s learned the hard way that forbidden fruit does taste the sweetest.
Although friends and family have supported Scraps in his efforts to quit, he has backslid on multiple occasions.
“He’s a fiend for Dr. Pepper,” roommate Michelle Dobbs said. “I came into the kitchen one day and found him rolled over, trying to drink every drop out of the last can we had. It was pathetic, really.”
The pup’s inability to kick the soda habit isn’t for lack of trying. He spent some time last month visiting a nutritionist, with the unfortunate name Chrissy Pepper.
"She had a name plate on her office door reading ‘Dr. Pepper,’" said Dobbs. "Needless to say, Scraps couldn’t handle it."

Dog Country Singer to Tour U.S.
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
To outsiders, Grace the dog seems little more than a gimmick - but to true fans of country music, she’s the real deal.
"You talk about the all-time greats — Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard — Grace is right up there," says Billy Norman, editor-in-chief of Country Time magazine. “Sure, her songs don’t make much sense, but she’s a dog. No one expected they would.”
The pup has proven so popular that she’s now set to embark on a nationwide tour. Most dates have already sold out.
"She’s going to start out in Boston and finish up in Nashville," says Norman. "That’s also where the largest Petco happens to be. I’m going to say they planned that one ahead of time."

Panda Safe After High-Stakes Tree Rescue

by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent

According to sources, Ming the panda is safe on the ground this morning after becoming trapped in a tire swing at least three feet from the ground. Witnesses tell The Fluffington Post that her brother, Bao Lao, quickly assessed the situation and sprung into action.

"She’s in that tire swing all the time," says Richard Beck. "I knew she was eventually going to get stuck in it. It’s a good thing Bao Lao was around, because I definitely wasn’t going up there."

The three-year-old panda was shaken, but quickly returned to her normal panda activities. 

"She went to sleep," says Beck. "I don’t blame her, though - I’d be exhausted too if that happened to me."
