Domestic cats have been getting bad press lately for as one of the world’s top invasive species. Now, thanks to evolutionary biologist Jaroslav Flegr — whom National Geographic dubbed a ‘cat detective — we know they can make us all a bit cuckoo too. The guy discovered that the toxoplasma gondii parasite that’s pervasive in [...]
YouTube user moonli927 has a cat video that has garnered over 2.1 million views in just one fortnight. It’s impossible not to see why. In it, her white cat Kido basically plays multiple rounds of the shell game, expertly pawing out the correct shell every single time. Unexpected bonus: the cat narrows his eyes every [...]
Haha, the Buzzfeed folks had us in stitches with this bunch of images showing how Jeremy Renner is really Grumpy Cat — yes, the same Grumpy Cat that has become a meme hit of late. Have a look and we’ll be damned if you don’t see the likeness.
There’s no question that cats rule the internet, and this hilarious Tumblr is proof of that fact. Seriously, what’s not to love about a blog dedicated to comparing cats to pin-up girls? The similarities are uncanny.
Cats scratch stuff. There’s a skill in there, we’re sure. Suck UK has the ultimate scratch mat for cats in the form of a turntable that’s just asking to be scratched. Of course, you can always surrender your real turntable over to these talented paws for a potentially wicked mix.
We knew it: cats plan to take over the world. From forming secret societies and undergoing ‘highly intensive training’ to mastering levitation and being the perfect Mata Hari, we know what they’re up, and they’re up to no good. Here’s a whole lot of pictorial proof, thanks to the folks from The Ark in Space, to show for it.
Heil Kitlers. When Mashable recently ran a gallery of the 15 best cat memes ever, we were astonished not to have found out about the Kitlers — cats that look like Adolf Hitler, with a dash of black above their mouths — until now. We’ve always been fond of tuxedo cats
Here’s your latest time-waster – a super-simple site with a bunch of black and white photos of cats bouncing around in seemingly random ways. As they lose velocity, you can click to throw them back up in the air. Way friendlier than those angry birds.
Someday, we promise to ease off on the cat posts. Just not today. So, yeah, cats. They go well with fine art. It also appears that they go well with literature too. Say hello to the Neruda Cats Tumblr, where pictures of cats are mashed with philosophical and emotionally charged lines from Chilean poet Pablo Neruda’s works, elevating the latter to a bizarre zone of feline-induced epicness. That’s it, all good poetry should go with cats.
We were having a terrible day until we caught a glimpse of the Chimpcat. It’s an original creation by illustrator and graphic designer Steven Dressler, who does amazing work even when he’s not digitally cross-breeding chimps with poker-faced cats.
Jennifer Gardy, PhD, is a serious scholar with a serious job as a university professor and the head of a major research lab. She also has the most adorable, least pretentious personal website ever. Despite her busy schedule, she also finds time to head up the (entirely fictitious) Kitten Microbiome Project, to which I had the [...]
We can only imagine just how many unfortunate souls land up at this Tumblr blog from googling ‘celebrity pussy’. There’s nothing dirty about this blog, just, well, innocuous, classy pictures of celebrities and cats.
Cats, reviewed by their owners according to appearance (e.g. ‘I think she’s pretty the way a father finds his unsightly daughter pretty…’), sociability (e.g. ‘Gus loves to be social. At 3 in the morning. By screaming outside your door like a banshee haunting.’), usefulness (e.g. ‘Henry does nothing. ever. He’s good at mowing the lawn while i garden and then throwing it up as soon as we come back inside.’) and huggability (e.g. ‘… accepts it immediately and rejects it shortly thereafter’). So good that there’s even an (unaffiliated) spinoff for dogs, obviously called Review of my Dog.
Everyone needs a good tailor. Even cats. Especially cats. So here’s Cat Prin, an online boutique store that sells all the apparel every self-respecting cat needs to look sharp in — like the ‘frog transformation set’, ‘young lady blouse‘ and ‘shawl of leopard‘. Takako Iwase is the Japanese cat tailor, the driving force behind these feline fashion creations, while Prin is her white cat who models most of them. Especially brilliant are the poetic lines that sprout up everywhere on the site. ‘You need to dress a cat. And you will say to a cat together with a family. ‘It has changed just for a moment’, are wise words that are now engraved into the insides of our brains.
