Meet Lili (grey) and Renley (ginger) – two adorable kittens that can’t stop snuggling in their favorite spot – a bed perched on top of a cat condo.
Ever since they were adopted, this bed was their favorite napping spot. Now that they’ve gotten bigger, they’ve obviously outgrown their beloved cuddle bed, but that doesn’t stop them! They’d rather squeeze in and cuddle in this tiny bed than go for another napping spot. It’s just too cute! Take a look below.

Indian graphic designer Shibu PG uses a subtle touch to add animal features to words. He modifies just one letter to add the defining characteristic; for example, the letter “u” in the word “bull” has horns.
What you might have missed, however, is that the typeface plays a big role in the design. In the previous example, the horns are angled and free of curves, just like the letters themselves.

Turkish artist Said Dagdeviren makes beautiful art with a message. His recent series, Double Exposure, is of animated animal silhouettes and human activity that damages said animal’s habitat.
The images of a polar bear with a pumping oil well on its back is surreal; the silhouette of a whale with a waterside factory polluting the waters is sad. See the rest of Dagdeviren’s work below.
This is how humans destroy animal habitats…
…and this is how things shoul be
Some of these models likely include many existing ones today that are overdue for replacement, such as the aging 300 sedan, an overdue Town & Country minivan, and even an updated 200. There’s even potential of a new entry-level subcompact in the form of a 100, to compete with the likes of the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, and Honda Civic.
It’s only an idea at the moment however, since Chrysler also wants to avoid product overlap since such a car could clash with the Dodge Dart, the direct competitor from Mopar to the Cruze, Focus, etc.
Chrysler too also will seemingly boost their crossover variety since we all know, the crossover is the sales king and breadwinner these days, so ones to hit the heart of the market, where the Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander land, as well as the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia twins, aren’t too far-fetched. This would mean the introduction of a total of two crossovers, of the midsize and full-size affair.
The midsize affair would compete against the Ford Edge, Hyundai Santa Fe, and the equivalent Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain crossovers.
Being a cheese enthusiast who aims to taste every cheese in the world can be a dream that’ll take years before you can finally accomplish it. There are just too many cheese varieties in the world with their own unique ways of preparation, but in the end, they’re bursting with flavors that are best accompanied with wine or beer or better be used to mix in main dishes for that extra yummy kick. So let’s travel around the world and find out their cheeses which you can’t find and taste anywhere else.
The French are well-known to love their cheese which traditionally counts about 350 to 450 distinct types but if you’re going to consider to include the varieties for each type, you’ll get a surprising 1,000 different types of cheese in France. Examples of truly French cheeses you can find is Roquefort, one of the world’s best known blue cheeses made from sheep’s milk; and the pale Brie which is a soft cow’s milk cheese named after the region where it originated.
In Switzerland, the Swiss Cheese that everyone knows is called Emmentaler or Emmental. Originated from Emmental, the yellow cheese is an unpasteurized hard cheese made from cow’s milk. It is one of the commonly used cheeses in a classic fondue together with another Swiss cheese, gruyere.
The hard, off-white or sometimes orange cheddar cheese originated in the British village of Cheddar in Somerset, UK. The sharp tasting cheese is the most popular type of cheese in the UK and also in other parts of the world as countries such as the USA produces cheddar cheese too. There are over 700 named cheeses produced in UK.
Greek dishes, most of the time, won’t be complete without feta cheese on the side. The rich and creamy feta is authentically made of 45 to 60 percent fat from whole sheep’s milk but most are now made from goat’s milk or a mixture of both.
German delis won’t be complete without the combination of sausages, hams, and cheeses to attract eyes and hungry tummies. One truly German cheese you’ll find is the Allgäuer Bergkäse, a smooth yet hard mountain cheese made from unpasteurized cow’s milk. It is a “PDO” (Protected Designation of Origin) cheese from Germany, same as southern Hesse’s Handkäse.
Hundreds of cheeses are also made in Belgium and the experience in drinking Belgian beers won’t be complete without one getting paired with a perfectly ripe cheese. Herve is the best-known Belgian cheese and also the only one with an AOP-label. Herve is often enjoyed with a slice of rye bread covered in a Belgian apple and pear jam called Sirop de Liège.
When you think about Dutch cheese, you’ll think about gouda. Gouda, named after the city Gouda in South Holland, is a semi-hard cheese typically made from pasteurized cow’s milk but sheep’s or goat’s milk can also be used.
Italy has the so-called King of Cheese but better known as Parmigiano-Reggiano which can be served in anything from eggs to pasta for that spicy, salty, briny kick of flavor.
Spain’s most popular cheese is Queso Manchego, a cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain from the milk of sheep of the manchega breed. The creamy and slightly piquant cheese is protected under Spain’s Denominación de Origen (DO) regulatory classification system, which means certain requirements should be met in making Queso Manchego. In total, there are 23 cheeses protected under D.O.
Yes, there’s American cheese! Not those individually wrapped processed cheese slices, but the real deal. One cheese worth tasting is Colby Cheese which was first made in the town of Colby in Wisconsin. The recipe is close to Cheddar Cheese but the taste is milder.
Thanks to Spain, Mexico has learned the art of cheesemaking, creating a number of cheese varieties which are 100% Mexican. Some of the popular cheeses in Mexico include Cotija, Chihuahua, Oaxaca, and their version of manchego. The most basic Mexican cheese is queso fresco, made from cow’s milk or a combination of goat and cow’s milk. It’s white and creamy yet not rich or buttery tasting.
If you’re familiar with Indian cuisine, you’ll often notice paneer in some dishes. Paneer is a fresh, unsalted white cheese that doesn’t require ageing or culturing which makes it easy to make at home. Paneer is used from curry to pizzas. You can also find it used in India’s fast food restaurants like KFC.
Ethiopia has ayib, another type of fresh cheese similar to India’s paneer. It is usually used as a topping for meat and vegetable stews.
Cheese is the last thing you’d think about eating in Brazil, but you gotta try it. The famous in the country is Minas cheese from the state of Minas Gerais. It is the main ingredient in the tasty pão de queijo (cheese bread).
Jordan has jameed, a cheese made from hard dry laban (yogurt) from ewe or goat’s milk. Jameed is used in Jordanian dishes such as fatta, mahashi and mansaf, the national dish of Jordan.
In the Philippines, you’ll find cheese wrapped in banana leaves. This is called kesong puti which literally translates to “white cheese”. The soft and slightly salty cheese made from carabao’s or cow’s milk is often paired up with local bread called pan de sal.
Rushan is a cow’s milk cheese originated in Yunnan, China. Unlike the usual cheese you’ve tasted in the market, rushan has a leathery texture that is often fried and grilled to have a flaky texture and sold on sticks as street food.
Japan may not ring a bell when it comes to the world of cheese, but here’s one cheese that’s truly Japanese: Sakura cheese. Created from cow’s milk and infused with cherry blossoms, sakura cheese is creamy with a balanced taste of sweet, salty, and sour.
In 1967, a Belgian priest appointed in Imsil Catholic Church thought that the mountainous area of Imsil is fit enough to produce cheese. He brought two mountain goats and the method of cheesemaking, and that’s how the production of Imsil Cheese started. Nowadays, tourists visit the village to have a taste of this Korean-made cheese.
