ResQte Of The Week: Ya Gotta Have HEART

14684736626_e0f055a0f3_oClipboard01“In May my partner Diana and I helped out at a no-kill cat & dog shelter called HEART in Tokushima, Japan. The rainy season weather has taken a toll on the cat houses over the years and an influx of residents following the 3/11 disaster meant a need for temporary housing, which has left little room for saving these past 3 years. We’ve launched a fundraising campaign to build a new cat house!” -Ben B.

Anyone Up For A Pikachu Or Two?

Just when you think you’ve seen everything The Big J can throw at you–they smack you in the face even harder.

Yokohama will be hosting some type of massive Pikachu event next month from the 9th through the 17th, called “Pikachu Tairyo Hassei Chu. Translating as “An Outbreak of Pikachus” or “Pikachus All Over the Place,” according to RocketNews24. RN24 also reports, “Pokémon events will take place at no less than 14 locations in and around the Minato Mirai harbor front district.” Here’s the official website if you can handle it.

Shake Yer Body Down To the Ground

This may or may not be an is an Encore Presentaysh, even though the C.O. database returned zero hits on the name “Chiro.” Doesn’t really matter- one of the greatest videos in history. Right here.

Caturday: [Dude, You're Givin' Us A Bad Name.]

[Listen, pal. We're cats. CATS. C-A-T-S. King of the Jungle- Lion King, you know? Have you heard of it? We're aloof. Indifferent. We could couldn't care LESS. That's our bag, it's what we do. You dig? Good grief, next you'll be slobbering for a bone. Repeat after moi: 'CATS. DON'T. EVER. PLAY. FETCH.']

Hot Town, Summer In The City

It’s summertime in Nara, Japan. What do you do to cool off? Well, you plop right down in the street, naturally.

RocketNews 24 says “this is a regular occurrence in late July, with the deer strolling out of the park to ‘enjoy the coolness of the street.'”

Just Two Pals Out For A Walk/Hop

This involves a Bun and a Cat, in Japan.

Here I Am All Zenned Out With My Bread Pillow (Part II)

Bread Pillows for Kittehs. Of COURSE this is a Japan thing. Last time, some thunder ended up harshing our kitteh’s mellow. Nothing like that this time around- just some classic Back N Forth Whackadoodle Eyes.

Thank You Sir May I Have Another!

This extremely polite kitteh knows just what it wants, and knows just how to go about getting it.

He Is….The Most Relaxed Kitteh In The World

Was going to write something pithy for this clip, then I read the blurb on YouTube and realized I couldn’t top it:

My name is MOCO.
It is now ten months since he was born.
I grew up boldly recently. Cat control by the cat engineering.
Do not turn this invitation down. It has been said that petting the tummy of a kitty is like frolicking in the back hair of an angel.

“Frolicking in the back hair of an angel.” Hmmmmmmm. Must ponder this one.

Well, Nuts.
