My Show Is On- Can We Talk LATER?

According to NBC News.com, a new study suggests that- despite what we all know to be true – your cat isn’t totally ignoring you.

The key word there is “totally.”

The report’s in the July issue of Animal Cognition. Quoting the website article, “Dogs have evolved, and are bred, to follow their owner’s orders, but cats have not been. So sometimes cats appear aloof, but they have special relationships with their owners.”

(Like, sometimes they MIGHT share the remote with you. Or not.)

“This is my new kitteh, ragdoll Coco Chanel. Within hours of coming home, she was already acting as dignified as her namesake. I LOVE your site and hope Coco can be a part of the Cuteness!” -Amélie P.

You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Room

Mayor Vaughn: “Sheriff Brody, you can’t close the living room. It’s summertime! The peak of the tourist season! Do you know what this will mean? You yell ‘cat’ and we’ve got a panic on our hands!”

Sheriff Brody: “I can do anything; I’m the chief of police.”

Hooper: “What we’re dealing with here….is a perfect cleaning machine.

Turkey Cat

“Hello! I found this cat napping on a Turkish book shop display in Istanbul. I took the photo. Thank you for your consideration!” – International Cuteporter Alexandra R.

BBC Kittehs On The Move!

Clipboard01Peeps, check this out. A BBC show programme has outfitted 50 kittehs with GPS tracker-cams to find out what they DO all day. Besides sleep & lick their paws. There’s a show called The Secret Life Of The Cat, but..it’s UK-only. Ahem. This link, though, shows you quite a lot. Click a kitteh at the top of that page, and the kitteh video journey will pop up. More here.

UPDATE 1.0! Cuteporter Tony J. found the show on YouTube!

UPDATE 2.0! Cuteporters DC & Tony J. found another one! w00t!

Morris De Voto Para La Alcaldía!

Vote Morris For Mayor, that is. It seems that Morris The Cat is running for mayor in the town of Xalapa, Mexico. He’s got his social media strategy working, with FB & Twitter accounts getting out the word. (Helps to speak Spanish if you’re gonna click those, FWIW.)

Morris’s platform, judging from this video, is to…knock things off the table. According to Time.com, Morris wants to “get the rats out,” -you can take that two ways- and “do what other politicians do, namely sleep and do nothing.”

Good luck to Big Mo!

Hey…You Kids!!!

Don’t you see my sign? BEWARE OF CAT, STAY OFF MY LAWN!

Anyone Up For A Game O’ Pounce?

Trisha G. says: “My 16+ year old kitten Iris is always up for a game of pounce! I got her at the Animal Rescue League of Boston April 15 (tax day) 1997 and the name seemed to fit the day.” (Geddit? Iris = I.R.S.)
