Eva Longoria Accessorizes With A Cat & Rihanna’s Mom Is Not Happy About Her Pantslessness On Instagram

Cats are the new, hot red carpet accessory thanks to Eva Longoria. I will withhold my comments as I know they will be unpopular. [NY Mag The Cut] Former Destiny's Child member Latavia Roberson has been real busy lately. There's a baby, a reality show and a tell-all memoir in her future. Take that, Beyonce.

In Which I Introduce You To Mug, Your New Favorite Internet Cat

This is Mug. This little cat is owned by my friends Renee and Tom, and I'm absolutely obsessed with her. No, me and Mug have never actually formally met, but that hasn't stopped me from "liking" her Facebook page and spending at least a good two to 10 minutes going over her ridiculous photos every…

It’s A Safe Bet That This Swimming Fat Cat Hates Her Life More Than You Do

Holly is a 13-year-old fat cat that desperately needs to lose some weight, so her owner takes her for weekly swim sessions at the local YMCA. The look of utter disgust and horror on this cat's face just says it all, doesn't it? It's pretty clear poor Holly is in the midst of some pretty…

Sam The Cat’s Eyebrows, In GIF Form

Perpetually surprised cat Sam is a special boy -- and a bonafide Innnnnerweb sensation. He's got markings on his face that resemble kitty eyebrows, and it's super cute because humans love nothing more than anthropomorphizing animals. But not as cute as what my friend Michelle Collins did with Sam, in GIF form, which you ca…

Flipper The Cat Flops Into My Heart

Flipper the cat was born with a twisted spine (boo!) that makes it impossible to get all of her legs working in the right direction. Instead, as she moves forward, her legs move sideways (double boo). But the nice kids at Blitz Robotic Club at Conifer High School in Conifer, Colorado, decided to help Flipper…

Tard The Grumpy Cat Is Fashion’s Next Major Player

Tard, the cat otherwise known as Grumpy Cat, has been making the media rounds of late. He's taken his patented lazy look on the road, and today stopped off at style blog Refinery 29 to talk about Choupette and take a gander at the 2013 United Bamboo cat collection. Tard exhibited disinterest and mild disdain,…

Claw Crane Cat Don’t Care

Would that we could all have the nonchalant attitude of Claw Crane Cat, nonplussed by the large grabby crane that seems to be continually invading his personal space. This Russian kitty just keeps on idly grooming himself amidst the arcade hubbub. What a zen pro. [The Daily What]…

Stop What You’re Doing And Watch Persian Kitten Reginald Get A Bath

This is Reginald the Persian kitten. He's getting a bath, which is bad enough. But after the bath, he'll be treated to a special blow dry. Whether he likes it or not. Ugh, Reginald! [YouTube]…

Today, We Are All This Kitty In A Panda Suit

Guys, it's been a rough week here in New York and the surrounding areas. We feel a little beat up and spit out -- a bit like Cooper, stuck here in a cute as hell panda suit against his will. Much of the region is still totally fucked, and could really use your thoughts, prayer…

This Cat Is What I Look Like When I’m Watching My Stories

The 10 Best Cats On The Internet Ever

The Internet was basically invented for cat videos. Through the years, we've probably wasted at least half our lives to watching cat videos and ogling pictures of cute kittens, so we're pretty much experts when it comes to the best cats online.

13 Cats That Refused To Get Dressed Up For Halloween

Cats are such stubborn creatures. Case in point: These difficult jerks who refuse to even wear fur on Halloween. While their dog counterparts are yukking it up in bumblebee costumes and ridiculous hats, these cats are letting it all hang out -- naked as jay birds, with their silly little lion cuts. Sigh. So difficult.

Important Cat News While I Was Away: A Lil’ Bub Hand Tattoo

You know, I understand that I cover the animal beat for The Frisky, and I take my responsibilities very seriously. Which is why it pains me to no end that Amelia, Winona, Jessica, Ami and Rachel completely failed to step up and post this really important Lil' Bub palm tattoo that one of Winona's friend…

Lost Cat Has Been Found!

I always feel a little heartbroken when I see flyers for missing dogs and cats tacked up around the city, especially because you never get an update as to whether they've been found. But maybe this flyer -- from cat owners rejoicing in having found their lost pet -- will start a trend? So relieved…

Vice Makes A Lil Bub Documentary, Of Course

If you're anything like me, you think Lil Bub is maybe the finest cat thing on the planet. The perma-kitten with stunted legs, bug eyes and a perpetually limp tongue has become an insta-celeb in influential cat video circles.

Hero Of The Day: The Train Conductor Who Stopped To Help A Kitten On The Tracks

So often we hear about public transit disasters, so it's nice to actually hear a positive story about the New York subway system. Conductor John Ross was pulling the Franklin Shuttle train out of the Brooklyn Botanical station when he spotted a small, helpless kitten on the tracks. The cat was apparently imitating Drunk Me…
