Caturday Greetings From Portugal

2014-08-12 23.09.37Caturday saudações para você! From our Caturday Mailbag comes this from Claudia S.: “Almost two years ago my boy Garfield had the great honor of being part of the Cute Overload community! Now I’d like you to meet his adopted baby sister Nikita.”

“She’s healthy and growing fast. She’s very sweet and energetic and has a completely irresistible half-mustache. I thought Garfield would have a hard time accepting her in the house, but he loves her and takes great care of her. And he’s so patient with her. Here’s some photos of her then (above) and now (below.)”

I Haz New Sleepy Place OK?

Yesterday, we ran a post on IKEA beds that cats can use. THAT post has now been rendered irrelevant by THIS post. Cats can and will sleep anywhere they choose.

Whether you like it or not.

Cat Beds & The Secret Behind IKEA Names Revealed!

We’ll have a go at just about any topic around here as long as there’s a KITTEH angle in it.

From the tag-team combo of Andrew Y. and RocketNews 24 comes…kitteh beds. But not just ANY kitteh beds.

No more flimsy, round conventional kitteh beds that get all furry and stuff.

OK, OK.

They’re not really kitteh beds.

They’re for toy dolls!

As always, IKEA has a cool Swedish name for ‘em.

Congrats To The Class Of 2014!

Earlier in the year, the New York ASPCA opened up a specialized nursery for Leetle Kittehs that were too young to make it on their own. On Tuesday, they held a graduation ceremony for the furrballs, who now move on to the ASPCA Adoption Center where they’ll be ready to go to a new home! Wanna donate to the ASPCA? Here’s how.

And BTW- do we know who graduated Phi Beta Catta?
