Cat Lives Secret Life With 2 Families

Cat Lives Secret Life With Two Families

Alice Alexander probably had no idea that the name she gave her new Siamese cat 14 years ago would prove so prescient. She called him “Ming,” because he liked to mingle—so much so that he has been going back and forth between her New Zealand home and another one for more than a decade, effectively combining two of its nine lives to live a double one, reports Stuff NZ. Alexander and the Smith family, who call the cat Cleo, are now fighting over ownership of the vagabond kitty, who apparently sees nothing wrong with two-timing each one, notes Gawker. Read more on Newser…

Kitten’s Weekly Weigh-Ins Are Ridiculously Cute

Kitten in a scale

Kittens: they grow up so fast! It seems like just yesterday that mine was but a fluffy palm-sized gremlin. (Now he’s a fat-faced, 15-pound young gentleman and a formidable paw-wrestling opponent. That boy is HUSKY.) Himajin Sokuhuo of Japan, who owns a to-die-for tabby, documented his kitten’s growth in a series of 12 photos — the first weigh-in comes in at 70 grams, and the last at 954. But who really cares how much this kitten weighs when it is SO FREAKING CUTE? Check out the full series at RocketNews24!

The Kitten Bowl Is Here, And It’s Smarter, Cleaner, And More Agile Than The Puppy Bowl

The Hallmark Channel will host the Kitten Bowl

The Puppy Bowl is cool and all, but there’s only so long I can watch a bunch of dogs tumbling around before I’m like, “Where them kittens at?” The Hallmark Channel must have heard my plaintive brays, because they confirmed that they will be staging a Kitten Bowl come Super Bowl Sunday 2014. (Also, they announced this back in April, but I must have missed it so I’m going to go ahead and assume you did too.) The network has just announced that Beth Stern (that’s Howard’s wife) will host, Yankees radio announcer John Sterling will give the play-by-play, and — this is the best part — the festivities, featuring 60 to 70 kittens, will run from noon to 9 p.m. It’s perfect, because watching kittens on television is literally the only thing I could feasibly enjoy doing for nine hours straight.
