Caturday: All Is Calm…All Is Bright…

And then SOMEONE decides it would be a great idea to climb up inside the big green thing with all the shiny things and lights. You can probably guess what happens next.

(Boing!! Boing!!)

Christmas With Cookie The Cavoodle

Joey To The World

Christmas season usually brings thoughts of kittehs and puppehs in stockings by the fire, or even..BEBEH REINDEER. We suggest this Bebeh Roo makes an excellent Aussie Alternative! “This face-meltingly cute video features the Kangaroos at Nashville Zoo, which are ridiculously adorable. Bonus: It’s seasonally appropriate!” -Lindsay C.

The Raiders Of The Lost Bark

Indiana Bones needs to keep the Bark Of The Covenant from the clutches of the Nazis kittehs. Will Indy MAKE it in TIME?

Meowy Christmas From Spooky Boogie!

“Almost 2 months ago we adopted out first kitten, Spooky Boogie, an Exotic Shorthair. We would like to share with you our holiday pics of him! Pictures taken by my boyfriend, Andrew C., and myself. Thanks for all the cheer you bring all year long!”

Simon’s Cat creator Simon Tofield has four cats, and as you might expect, is off to the vet on a regular basis. Which also happens to be the name of a Simon’s Cat movie due out in 2015!

C.O. Cat Café World Tour: New York City

Squinkles2 - Photo Credit Ethan CoveyOakland, CA. opened up the first full-time Cat Café in the US just before Halloween, and now the East Coast’s first Cat Café is open, stuffed with friendly furry felines! Meow Parlour opened up this past Monday on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

It’s a two-part kinda thing- a bakery serving Kitteh Macarons and coffee on Ludlow Street, and the cat play area across the street on Hester.

Their website says “All the cats are adoptable. Meow Parlour has teamed up with KittyKind, an all volunteer, no kill rescue group located in NYC. KittyKind specializes in adopting out cats so if you fall in love, you can apply to adopt one!”

Window Shopping In San Francisco

SFSPCA_Macys_54Time to check in on the Holiday Windows at Macy’s in downtown San Francisco. We brought you the grand opening last month, headlined by the one and only Grumpy Cat, who hated it. But, good news! If you’re in the Bay Area, there’s still time to check it out and maybe adopt a little friend for yourself- here’s the schedule for the rest of the season. (Otherwise, you can watch them live during view hours here: Live Stream 1 / Live Stream 2 / Live Stream 3 /

“Right now we’re at 156 adoptions, which is great. That’s a lot of animals who are going to be in loving homes for the holidays! And almost all of our volunteer slots have filled up this year. Given the weather we’ve been having, it’s really inspiring to see so many people eager to brave the rain to volunteer and adopt,” says Krista M. of the SF SPCA.

“Plus, we’ve raised about $45,000 in donations. We’ll continue to need volunteers even after the Holiday Windows event ends on January 4th, so if anyone would like to makes a New Year’s resolution to help out we’d encourage them to check out our next volunteer orientation dates.”
