Kiki can come play house with us anytime, Shirley M.

Whoever heard of a herd of cats, Heidi B.?

Psycho(analyzed) Kitty

How is this cat feeling? If you’ve got an opinion, we’ve got a job for you. As part of a research project, Tagpuss.com shows pictures of cats and asks you how each cat feels. Kind of like “Am I Hot or Not?” as conceived by Sigmund Freud and Garfield.

Help for the Cuteness-Impaired

Amazing as it may sound to loyal readers like yourselves, there are people whose emotional development is so stunted that they cannot recognize Teh Qte.

The Lives of the Bootleggers

In the heady days of Prohibition, booze ruled the speakeasies — and violence ruled the streets. No self-respecting mob lieutenant would dare travel without his trusty “tommy cat,” hidden discreetly inside a violin case to fool the police.

Actually Chloe G. says it’s a guitar case — and we agree, Cleo there is a fat little girl!
