Cats. With Shower Caps.

Judging from the expression on their faces, you have to think that there’s gonna be a new hoomin behind the camera for the next video clip.

“Just .01 Per Kitten!”

Wanted to take a sec to plug one of The Furrtographer’s projects- (he took some shots for the Calendar, yo) kittehs for your phone! Open your phone up, and stuff ’em right in there!!

No, not really.

“Since people love kittens, and need to have a photo of one on their phone at all times, I designed this app to fulfill this need,” Josh says.

“It features 116 kitten photos taken by me at various rescues over the years. The app is FREE and features 17 kitten photos that are easy to share and save.”

“It’s just $.99 to unlock the other 99. That’s just $.01 per kitten!!!”

Meow! It’s Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Sure, they get a lot of attention in October, but that’s not quite the kind they want! Today’s Black Cat Appreciation Day! And here are five ASPCA-approved reasons why they would make a great kitteh for you!

Black cats go with everything—and they’ll never go out of style!

You can tell your kids you adopted a miniature panther.

Their fur won’t show on your little black dress.

In most cultures, black cats are a sign of good luck.

Black cats are just as loving, sweet and wonderful as any other cat!

Caturday Celebrity Cats (And Their Faithful Hoomins)

MQ-PrincessCheeto-HeroThe Interwebs are ruled by Cats. We all know this. But who puts The Cats in that position? Sure, cats are smart- but they need SOMEONE–grudgingly, no doubt–to open up that Instagram account or post that first photo on Reddit. Here are a few of the more well-known Net Felines, with their humble hoomins. That’s Hugo Martinez and Princess Cheeto of Brooklyn above and below:



Lil’ BUB, Bloomington, Indiana. Hoomin: Mike Bridavsky.


Sam (Who has eyebrows,) NYC. Hoomins: Amanda Collado.


Princess Monster Truck, Brooklyn. Hoomins: Joseph Bryce and Tracy Timmins.


Atchoum, Montreal. Hoomin: Nathalie Côté.

We’ve All Seen The Signs

You come back home from a long day and work, expecting your loving cat to greet you at the door. [*Note: Riiiiight. -Ed.]

And then…you notice a certain glassy far-away look in his/her eyes. Hmmmmm. Where’s that number for Catnip Anonymous?

Mom Taxi LI: Watch The Claws, OK?

This cat clearly has his hoomin trained properly. Like this is a surprise to any of us.
