Maru The Cat On His First Love

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, of course, his love for boxes. [Buzzfeed]

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.

1. No inappropriate confessions/dirty talk if they’ve had too much to drink.

2. No possibility their cell phones will ring and wake you up.

3. Bored senseless by Internet porn; thus not dying to give you the money shot. Keep reading »

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 heaven. But what happens when they don’t come together? Well, Fashionista has the right idea: you put them together! Much to my gratification, my fave fashion industry blog compiled 12 spring ad campaigns and blessed them all with a feline touch. Quite frankly, the results leave me wondering why the cats weren’t actually there in the first place. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

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 article reads like a Bret Easton Ellis novel… and hilariously, awesomely so. However alienating he may be, Karl and I do have one thing in common: we refer to our cats as being “very refined.” After the jump, check out some of my favorite quotes from the feature.

Tokyo’s Cat Cafes Threatened By Changes To Japan’s Animal Protection Law

Times are looking tough for Tokyo’s cat cafes, where feline aficionados can drop in for tea and some time with a cat.

At most such establishments, it’s the post-work rush that brings in the most cash, with tired and harried professionals dropping by on their way homes to pet and play with the animals as a way of relieving stress.

But now the purrs of delight may be getting quieter. Read more…

Hank For Senate: Cat Runs For Office In Virginia

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.

Hank may not be the typical political animal: he has spent time on the streets; he’s never voted; and he really doesn’t seem to like wearing clothes to do his best work.

That’s right, former Virginia Govs. George Allen (R) and Tim Kaine (D) now face a feline foe. Hank’s a former street cat and political independent who advocates a job creation platform and “milk in every bowl.”According to his Twitter account, Hank is also passionate about the creation of a Privacy Bill of Rights and the protection of consumer data.

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 milk? [The FW]

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 things feline has yet to lead me to any questionable embroidered turtleneck sweater choices, but Paul & Joe Beauté’s limited edition cat-themed collection for Spring 2012 gets me so excited, you might think I had been rolling in nip all day. Sadly, I must not be the only person with cat-scratch fever, because most of the line is sold out. What remains, however, are these three adorable blush sticks in Paul & Joe’s trademark Parisian-pretty packaging. Keeping to the feline theme, the brand suggests drawing three whiskers on each cheek before blending. Adorable! The only reason I held out on buying the entire line is because I wouldn’t be able to use them for fear of smushing the poor kitty’s face. These are real problems, you see. [$28, b-glowing]

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 link. [Buzzfeed]
