Your Pet So Ugly...

We all have at least one ugly critter we love to death. Whether it's a hairless rat, a pug dog, a weird spider or fish--some might call that smashed-in face cringe worthy, but you think it's adorable. Science can shine a light on why we feel this way. It turns out that any kind of animal that seems in need of protection--whether it has big eyes, a small or soft body or other traditionally baby-like qualities--is cute to us humans. 

Dogs poop according to Earth's magnetic fields

Black cats and Halloween

Myths and superstition

Many shelters also refuse to adopt black cats in the month of October.
