Gravity 101

Many people think kittehs are naturally agile, but in fact this skill requires months of rigorous training to achieve. In this video example, students at Kitteh Kollege undergo advanced postgraduate training in slippery surfaces.

Update: The creator of the video provides this background: “The cat gave birth up there, I didn’t put them up there. I blocked off the top of the slide, they got around it, I blocked it off better, and finally kept them safe. They got on the slide themselves and even after falling off when I wasn’t there, they still kept getting back on. I did help the kitten at the end back up.”

The Adventures of Bizorro!

From our WTF* File comes that champion of justice, defender of the downtrodden, Bizorro! Charging to the rescue atop his mighty steed as they swiftly… well, all right, maybe not so swiftly… erm, frankly, “charging” may be overselling it a little…

Cuddle a Cuppa Kitty at a Cat Cafe

In the same vein as its bunny bistros, Japan’s cat cafes are cozy, caring — and cute. Few apartments in Japan allow pets, so patrons pay a fee to lounge with the friendly felines, observing rules to ensure a clean and happy environment for all.

From the blog Sea of Shoes, spotted by Ian F., who also pointed us to the site for the Chamamo Cat Room, where these photos were taken (click here for English translation).

Let’s Go for a Catwalk

Since 2008, two French hikers have chronicled their trek from Miami, FL to the tip of South America, a journey of 15,000km (about 9,320 miles) through 13 countries.

But what elevates this hike down a hemisphere straight into the Cuteosphere is the third member of the team: A stray kitten who joined them in Louisiana.

Hup, two, three, four, Sender-Inner Keri F. See all the cat-trekking action over at Turn of the World!

My Last Roommate Was Just Like This

Roomie: “So what’cha eatin’ there? Any good? I’m not partial to kibble, myself, but… Say, that’s not bad… Gosh, it’s such a nice day, let’s dine al fresco… I’ll just take this out to the veranda…”

Me: “Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…”

We’ll Get There When We Get There!

“You kids stop squirming around! Shermy, I don’t care what Marcie put in your lunchbox, stop hitting her! No, Rupert, we’re not stopping, so you’ll just have to hold it! And what’s that smell—Harold, have you been bathing in milk again?”

Happy Mother’s Day from Josh N. and everyone at Cute Overburden.

THIS JUST IN: ____, ____, and ____

The Bronx Zoo introduced three new lion cubs to the public, reports the Daily News, which is inviting the public to suggest names for the trio until midnight EST tonight. Wouldn’t “Meg,” “Prongs,” and “NTMTOM” be perfect for them (heh, heh)? Suggest a cub name here!

That’s Hamazing!

Get ready to scrape your jaws off the floor, peeps, as we meet YouTube user flybybutterflies, whose hobby involves training seemingly untrainable creatures (hamsters, goldfish, frat boys, etc.) to perform amazing feats of skill.

So, how good is she? This good:

The Ferret Dispenser’s Clogged Again…

It never fails: I put in my dollar, and what happens? When the stupid machine isn’t just taking my money and not giving me any ferret, it sends down two! Sheesh!

Now I have to walk all the way to Hannah P.’s office and get a refund slip.
