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 […]
These fancy felines are ready to hit the cat-walk! Last August, New York’s top cats gathered at the annual Cat Fashion Show at the Algonquin Hotel to raise money for underprivileged kitties. Thankfully, photographer Nadia Chaudhury was there on the prowl for the “purrfect” shot. All together, several thousand dollars were raised during the benefit. Bravo kitties. Bravo.
There’s not much cuter in this world then a cat wearing a sweater. Whether the feline looks incredibly angry or ready to cuddle, dressing it in a dapper sweater is always a good choice. Check out this gallery of Cats in Sweaters. It will make your day about ten times better. Seriously. You won’t regret it.
At the heart of Kaori Mitsushima’s illustrations is the conviction that cats are people. Fashionably dressed and elegantly posed, they look straight ahead with expressions that are impossible to read. I see traces of ennui and indifference, yet also keen alertness. Her cat people are complicated and elude interpretation. They are also beautiful, boldly silhouetted […]
Down, canine! There’s nothing a cat can’t bring under control with a good kitty swipe. Or unbearable cuteness. Really, cats just wield this weird invisible hold over everyone. Even dogs. Especially dogs. All hail kitty.
Explain this: if cats hate water, what are they doing in the sink? Are they thirsty? Is the sink simply too ‘cat-sized’ to ignore? We could try to read the minds of all the 513 cats in this photo gallery, but we’ll pass.
We love Tim Holman, he behind the fantastic Authentic Weather app (which you can now download for the iPhone, though no luck yet for Android users). Holman has also created a bunch of cool alternative Ipsums that website designers will no doubt be thrilled with, such as the Coffee Ipsum (“Irish skinny, grinder affogato, dark, […]
California-based Peach Industries purports to sell ‘stylish provisions for the modern pet’, but it carries just one thing in its store: loungers for cats. What can we say? It must be that good. Sustainably forested VOC-free birch plywood is what the frame is made of, while the covers are 100% cotton and machine-washable.
The Public Domain review is an outstanding resource, collecting some of the most fascinating and entertaining pieces of art that have fallen out of copyright’s legal restrictions. This website is full of treasures. One of my personal favorites is this children’s book by Charles Bennett, where a cat exhausts his nine lives. It is charming […]
In Karlsruhe, Germany, the kids who attend Kindergarten Wolfartsweier must contend with the serious business of walking straight into the mouth of a cat everyday. Artist Tomi Ungerer and architect d’Ayla-Suzan Yöndel are behind the brilliant kindergarten building design of a kitty in a sphinx-like pose. It’s so cool, the cat’s tail at the back […]
In what must be the greatest use of Auto-Tune in a while, here’s Daft Punk’s disco-inspired single Get Lucky, featuring Pharell Williams — oops, we mean a cat — on guest vox. What can we say? The Internet was made for breakout hits like this.
We wondered if any adoring Hello Kitty fan who’s also a cat owner would actually dress their cat as the mouthless doll. Yes, the answer is yes. Must say though, these kitties certainly don’t look very pleased. Watch out for the surprise appearance by a photoshopped Grumpy Cat and a sheepish-looking chihuahua.
Haha, blogger and TV host La Carmina just compiled a visual list that illustrates Japan’s obsession with cats. Yes, Hello Kitty was just the visible tip of the iceberg. From cat cupcakes to cat jewellery to cat cosplay, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
They say everyone’s a critic. Are the cats puking TO techno, or BECAUSE OF techno? We may never know, but I think techno isn’t so bad. I am firmly pro-cat though, and if they tell me techno is no good, I may have to believe them.
Cat Food Breath is the moniker of a big-boned 17-pound Siamese cat with dense hair and a taste for sushi. It has its own blog and an equally hilarious Twitter account. Of how the kitty found its way to cyberspace: ‘I was online one day, trying to sell the dog on eBay, when I stumbled […]
