Want: Glow-In-The-Dark AIDS-Proof Cats

We like kittens, and glow-in-the-dark things, and also things that fight AIDS, so the fact that science (!) has managed to create a cat that is all of those things at once just warms our hearts. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, genetically engineered the glow-in-the-dark cats by modifying cat cells with those…

Botticelli, With A Beyond Fat Cat

You knew I was going to love this, didn’t you? It has cats, fat cats, a cat that looks like my own increasingly obese polydactyl cat Colonel Mustard, and it makes fun of art. It’s pretty much a recipe for a good time. Here we have the Cattus de Milo (natch). More great works of…

Cat Scans Of An Entirely Different Kind

All hail the geniuses behind Cat Scans, a website that collects scans, of well, cat butts as they primp and preen while sitting on scanners. There’s nothing quite as wonderful as a furry cat butt smooshed up against a piece of glass, is there now? After the jump, several more fluffy feet and tail combo…

Did you think adorable kitten videos just happened out of thin air? Not so–the folks at Kittywood Studios toil away to make the fluffy, purring, cute magic. Why? Because “Cat videos not only change the way that we look at cats, and the way that we use our computers, and the way we look…

A Litter Box With A Good Look

As you might have noticed from my “What Are We Wearing?” post last Friday, I am the proud owner of a monster cat named Colonel Mustard. I also have a less monster-ed but still epically large cat named Pony. They are both big-boned and, okay, eat quite a bit, and as such, they both poo…

Dressing Cats Up In Costumes Is Animal Torture I Can Get Behind

For the past 15 years, the storied Algonquin Hotel in Manhattan has hosted a cat fashion show, in honor of its famed housecat, Matilda. This year’s fashion show brought out a wide array of well-coiffed kitties, dressed to the nine-lives (BARF) in the finest cat costume creations their crazy owners could find. Of course, there’…

A Thing You’ve Been Missing All Your Life: Fashion Cats!

How excited am I for the new book, Fashion Cats (available on Amazon)? So excited that I made up a song to the tune of the “Spiderman” theme song that goes “Fashion cats, fashion cats, my two favorite things in the world collide … FASHION CATS!!!” [This is true. She has been singing it

Latoya Jackson Prefers Tigers To House Cats

 

Latoya Jackson has a serious phobia of house cats. She fears that one will turn on her suddenly. But tigers, cougars, peacocks, giraffes and llamas—those are no biggie. I don’t want to be around any of the aforementioned animals—dogs are the only creatures I can deal with—but if I had to choose…

The New ASPCA Commercial Is Emotional Cruelty To Humans

Last night, I was catching up on some television when this commercial came on the air. Now, I should note that I love the ASPCA, the charity and pet adoption organization that seeks to end cruelty to animals. The ASPCA is where I adopted my cat, Cleo, and it’s an organization that I…

Paralyzed Cat Takes To Water To Learn To Walk

You know, you can’t learn to run without learning to walk first. And if you’re British cat Mog, you can’t learn to walk again until you learn how to swim. Mog was paralyzed after being hit by a car, but his dedicated owner wouldn’t give up on him. She took him for swimming therapy…

Would You Have Your Pets Be A Part Of Your Wedding, A La Miranda Lambert?

The self-shot venison dinner, the cowboy boots for the bridesmaids, the wearing of her mom’s wedding dress, the fishing honeymoon—yes, we have been thoroughly obsessed with Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s sweet downhome wedding. But now a new detail has reeled me in even further. Apparently, Miranda and Blake were adamant about their dogs—chihuahua Cher,…

Kitty Really, Really Enjoys Belly Rubs

On second thought, maybe that girl I posted about this morning wasn’t being finger-banged by Jesus. Maybe she was just channeling her spirit animal, this orgasmic cat.

What’s Up, Pussycat?

Yesterday a scampish rogue IMed me with a link and the message, “To the only person who loves p**sy and fashion as much as I do.” Oh, dear, I thought, mostly because I don’t like p**sy. But I clicked to link and much to my surprise I’m kinda in love with Elisabeth Moch’s funky Gibson-Girl-slash-I-Can-Haz-Cheezburger…
