Justin Bieber's monkey Mally taught the world that perhaps not everyone is fit for simian ownership. The Capuchin monkey was seized by customs in Germany when the touring singer neglected to present the correct paperwork. After Bieber failed to pay a fine, and Mally spent time in quarantine, the monkey was moved to a new, unBelieberable home at Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen.

The feline behind the now-famous sour-puss face had quite a year, including landing a movie deal. Grumpy Cat (aka Tardar Sauce) won meme of the year at the 2013 Webby Awards and was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at The Friskies awards in New York.
