The year was 1961. Vincent Price needed a black cat for his new movie, “Tales of Terror.” An open audition was held. The results, captured by Life magazine photographer Ralph Crane, are a little ridiculous, a little spooky, and totally awesome. See more photos from the series over at Bored Panda. … More »
L’enfer c’est les autres. Hell is other people. And other cats. No one knows this more than Henri, the existential French cat. He’s black and white, of course. And no one, no one, knows his torment. [The FW] … More »
“My first love was the box. And I am still in love with it. I might have had some kind of a relationship with boxes in a previous life.”
— Maru, the world’s greatest cat, in an exclusive and all-too brief interview with Buzzfeed. In it, he talks about his admiration for Garfield, his biggest inspirations, and,… More »
Happy National Pet Day! In honor of this momentous holiday, author Anna David — her Kindle single, Animal Attraction (about being a crazy cat lady), is a must-read — has penned this list of 20 reasons why sharing a bed with a cat is better than sharing it with a man.

If there is one thing in this life that I know for absolute certain, it’s that everything is better with cats (if you disagree, I don’t want to hear it; your argument is moot). I adore cats, and I also adore fashion, so when the two unite — which they often do — I’m in… More »
I get such a kick out of Karl. After casually poking fun at, like, everyone who isn’t Karl Lagerfeld last week, the kaiser is back and biting with a first-person Harper’s Bazaar feature that documents his life in 24 hours. If you’re sensitive to the shameless bourgeois, skip it, because I swear to god this… More »
Times are looking tough for Tokyo’s cat cafes, where feline aficionados can drop in for tea and some time with a cat.

The race for a Senate seat from Virginia may evolve into a cat fight now that one Springfield resident has tossed his collar into the ring.

Ay mami! My new favorite TV show, “Gatonovela,” has everything: romance, action, adventure, drug cartels, cats in outfits. You know, all of my favorite things. [VideoSift] … More »
These adorable little fluffernutters are a little bit cranky this morning. They’ve just been woken up by their owner, and would probably prefer to get another 12 hours of nap time in. These little British Shorthair kittens just wanna sleep, dammit, but since they’re up, would you mind getting them a bowl or three of… More »
It might be too early to file me under “crazy cat lady,” but I suggest you do so anyway, just to be safe. I’m that girl who’s always trying to show everyone photos of my cat. I don’t understand why it’s so weird … she’s really pretty, okay? My lifelong affinity for any and all… More »
This is a generalization, but I am pretty sure that most people who are very passionate about fonts are cat people. So it makes sense, in a weird way, to depict cats as fonts. Helvetica is just so hip, isn’t he? See some more of my favorite cats as fonts and even more at the… More »
Just a cat with a better beret collection than you or me. Really loving the vaguely-cross-eyed look of contempt captured in the picture on the right. I feel you, buddy, I feel you. [Farpitzs] … More »
In three minutes, David Cross — taking over for Joel McHale on “Talk Soup” — manages to completely decimate the entirety of cat videos on the web, covering both adorable kittens, and cute fat cats. He also gets the sad desperation one feels when one wants to completely eat all the cats in the world. More »
I would be so stoked if I could be half as relaxed and mellow as the cat in the party hat in the bowl is. That guy doesn’t even raise a whisker at the party hat intrusion. In fact, all of these cats seem suspiciously laid back about wearing stupid human hats, given the general… More »
There’s nothing cats hate more than being dressed up in festive costumes. Seriously? Look at the miserable kitty faces in this collection of Santa cats — the disdain is practically dripping off their furry little bodies. And that’s what makes Christmas cats so much fun. … More »
