Tashirojima is a small island in Japan with a weird population. No, the 100 human inhabitants are not what I’m talking about. It’s just that there are more cats here than humans. The island is known as Cat Island because of its thriving stray cat population. Locals believe that cats bring wealth and good luck, […]
Some kids have all the luck. Japanese embroidery artist Hiroko Kubota got a special request from her feline-obsessed son when she was making custom-sized clothes for him: he wanted cats on his shirt.
Remember these dogs in pantyhose? We can’t unremember these, for better or worse. Now there’s Meowfit of the Day, a Tumblr dedicated to Gucci, the ‘original cat in tights’, and which now also showcases Gucci’s other feline friends around the world whose owners have a thing for pairing them up with stuffed tights (yes, ‘legs’ included separately).
Aww, it’s a cute kitty candle. Psyche! It’s now the steel kitty skeleton from your worst nightmares! Known as the Devil’s Candle, this quirky candle was designed by Thorunn Arnadottir and Dan Koval back in 2011. Many wanted to get their hands on this after it became a hit online, but couldn’t, due to mass production issues.
Mix three of our favourite things together, and you’ll get… er, Japanese-made wine for cats. While the feline-targeted Nyan Nyan Nouveau wine is alcohol-free, it is made from Cabernet grapes and contains that other stuff that makes cats intoxicated: duh, catnip. Apparently only a thousand bottles of this wine will be produced. Still, at just about US$4 a bottle, we guess it won’t cost much to make your cat’s day, or at least see if it might prompt your cat to roll his or her eyes.
Cats are wonderful creatures, we all know that. They’re plush, soft, furry, ‘purry’, and will bring you dead animals as gifts. They make good candidates to replace dogs as ‘man’s best friend’. For this grandma from Japan, one cat may just have.
The most important day in every woman’s life: that day where they wear their most stunning gown, that day where they say their vows to the love of their life, and that day where they get to throw a cat into a crowd of single ladies. Wait, what? Brides Throwing Cats is a blog about what the title says it is, blushing brides throwing cats instead of flower bouquets. But don’t worry, the images are Photoshopped. No soft and furry felines were harmed in the making of these weddings.
Back in 2010 we told you about United Bamboo’s calendar cats and now we’re back with more because apparently this is a thing. Every year since 2010 United Bamboo has set out to photograph cute little kitties in their ready-to-wear collection of clothing. This year expect to see the cream of the crop in the […]

Made of cotton and completely machine washable, this trapeze can easily stay clean so your house won’t have to smell like cat all the time. Just attach it to a hook, stuff the cushions […]
Cats love milk, and two years ago, milk brand Cravendale decided to give our furry friends a hand — er, we mean thumbs — so they can get to the good stuff themselves instead of having to wait around for their milk. Naturally, this spun an equally hilarious series online of Tim Curry-narrated clips that […]
A bunch of declassified documents from the CIA’s Science and Technology Directorate released 12 years ago revealed that the CIA tried to use cats to spy on the Kremlin during the Cold War. One such exercise involved wiring a cat, Acoustic Kitty, so he could perform his eavesdropping duties by listening in to secret conversations from window sills, park benches or dustbins.
Does owning a cat make a person more creative and successful? Quite possibly. Don’t believe me? Just ask Andy Warhol. He owned 25 cats named Sam. Just take a look at these portraits of famous artists and their many furry pals. Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keefe, Gutav Klimt, Salvador Dahli, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso … they’re all […]
This 11 second video of a cat paw unlocking the new iPhone 5s is insanely cute. My mind said “No” but my heart said “Yes”. I fell in love with both the kitty and the phone. Apparently the new iPhone can be programmed to respond to a cat paw with a special “paw recognition”. Thanks […]
