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.”

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.

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

“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.
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!
