Wow, there’s now a new cat museum in Singapore that celebrates, well, cats. And we thought the Internet already had that covered. Dubbed Lion City Kitty, it’s not, as the name suggests, just random cat memorabilia on show.
We’ve heard you like cats. Lots of them. So instead of showing you another cat video or cute cat meme, we’re presenting you to a photo series full of the fabulous felines. These photos were shot by photographer Andreanne Lupien and feature cats and their crazy owners in their homes, doing crazy cat lover things like trying to watch TV (but the cat’s in the way), eating (but the cat’s in the way), and getting ready in the morning (but the cat is in the way, again).
When the time comes for cats and mice to battle it out, they will probably deck themselves out in Jeff de Boer’s magnificent metallic armours and fight in style.

This one is for the cat lovers. Greg Krueger, from St. James, Minnesota, has spent over 20 years and US$10,000 renovating his home for the happiness of his fur babies.

Anyone remember that gem of a book, Why Cats Paint? As it turns out, the same authors, Burton Silver and Heather Busch went on to publish another coffee table book, Dancing With Cats, documenting just that: humans dancing with cats.
Now that’s what you call undivided attention! In the following video, a cat stares blankly into the abyss, not even flinching when its human starts calling it out and poking its face. When the camera pans to where it’s gazing at, there’s only a blank wall. So what’s getting the attention of this feline? A bird? An invisible specter? The mystery continues!
It’s said that downing a glass of water first thing in the morning is good for you. Well, why not do that and be a cat about it? This adorable mug made of Boronsilicate glass will help you gulp down 550ml of your watery treat and transform into a cat at the same time. If […]
A Japanese cat blog called Guremike has been getting plenty of hits from cat lovers ever since pictures of how a particular kitty was circus-trained to sit inside a circle made from duct tape.
Since the office can be a stressful place, you should always have a website you visit to relax and take five. Some might choose Reddit, others might choose Digg, and let’s face it, the more intelligent office workers will select Lost at E Minor to browse while neglecting work. But if you’re looking for a fluffier website, a place where you’ll feel on cloud nine and like your stress is just washing away, may I suggest you visit Tea and Kittens.
In my neighborhood, there are many stray cats who are well fed by kind souls and all they seem to do is bask in the sun and judge you with inscrutable eyes when you walk pass them.

The Guardian has published an article on how to spot warning signs of stress in your cat, and one of the top causes appears to be… needy cat owners who seek attention from their cats. Uh huh, that could be you.

Associate art professor Owen Mundy has created a data map, I Know Where Your Cat Lives, which, true to its name, maps out cat photos from photo-sharing sites like Flickr and Instagram, thanks to some software he wrote to access API data with.
