Teen Petitions To Have Photo Of Him And His Cat Included In School Yearbook

Teen Petitions To Have Photo Of Him And His Cat Included In School Yearbook

Meet Draven Rodriguez, a junior at Schenectady High School in upstate New York, and his cat, Mr. Bigglesworth. For reasons that should be pretty obvious, Rodriguez is determined to have the above photo featured in his high school yearbook and has preemptively started an online petition asking for its inclusion. “I’m not trying to make any statement,” Rodriguez told The Daily Gazette, “other than my photo is ridiculous and this is how I am.” While school officials haven’t officially banned the photo entirely, they have told Rodriguez and Bigglesworth that their professionally shot photo cannot be included in the yearbook’s usual portrait section. Luckily, the dynamic duo is willing to compromise and would be cool with the photo appearing elsewhere in the yearbook. In other words, there’s really no controversy to report yet, but the photo is awesome and I wanted you to see it and, hey, early public support can’t hurt, right? See the full photo in all its feline glory after the jump. [via Gawker] Keep reading »

Awesome Cat Saves Owner From House Fire

Super Cat To The Rescuuuuueeeee!

Sully the tabby cat is a hero after rescuing her owner Craig Geeves from a fire in his home in a Melbourne, Australia suburb. Craig was asleep when the fire began around 1 a.m. on Monday. Sully sat on Craig’s chest meowing loudly in his face to wake him. Craig told the Australian Broadcasting Company, “She was standing on my head screaming, the loudest scream I’ve ever heard from a cat screaming at me and then I smelt the smoke and jumped out of bed … she saved my life.” Keep reading »

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…

Help Find A Home For The Internet’s Future Favorite Cat

Tucker

Meet Tucker, a sweet cat who, like feline celeb Lil Bub, was born with genetic abnormalities that give her an adorably unique look. Tucker’s former family was unable to care for her, so she currently lives at Purrfect Pals, a shelter in Washington that cares for special needs cats. The one-year-old kitteh is looking for a loving forever home. Not all of Tucker’s joints are constructed normally, so she needs special accommodations not to hurt herself. She also has an auto-immune disease that makes her skin bruise easily, so she (adorably) wears cat-sized T-shirts to stay safe. Tucker also suffers from hair loss. She adores children, being pet under the chin, and playing with string toys. Tucker’s adorable face makes an easy candidate for kitty internet stardom alongside Lil Bub and Grumpy Cat, but Tucker hardly has expectations of the celebrity life. All she longs for is to spend her days sitting on laps and sharing love with a human family. Could you be her new owner (and if it strikes you, her internet showbiz manager/meme creator)? If you’re interested or just would like to help other kitties in her plight, you can adopt Tucker here or make a donation to Purrfect Pals here. Hang in there, Tucker!

Somebody Take Me To A Kitten-Themed Wedding

Kittens
My Invitation Must Have Gotten Lost In The Mail

Happily Wedding, a wedding planning company in California, has opened up a whole new market — cat weddings. In case kitten-themed seating arrangements, feline cake toppers, the “glitter box,” and stationery marked “Furrever” wasn’t enough to make the perfect wedding day for cat-loving couple Kiera and Zach, they were then treated to the surprise arrival of kittens brought in specially to witness their wedding. I hope the cats had fun and didn’t feel too much like props, but if the video is any indication, it looks like their adventure that day was just as epic as the newlyweds’. To support the homeless kitties, Happily asked that anyone looking to adopt contact the Second Hand Souls Animal Rescue and Animal Actors. For cat loving ladies like myself, this ceremony may sound too good to be true, but a day like this can be yours for a cool $25,000. (What, you didn’t just have that laying around for your someday fantasy wedding?) Congrats to the happy couple! [The Gloss]
