There’s civil unrest in Egypt. The government might be spying on us. Millions are out of work. But OMG THERE’S A KITTY ON A NEWS PROGRAM GIVING AN INTERVIEW. Gahhhhh. Grumpy Cat hit up the Australian “Today Show” for a hard-nosed interview that sent TV host Karl Stefanovic into a giggling, snorting, knee-slapping fit.
Glad to know it isn’t just American journalism that’s down the toilet. [Uproxx]
Is there anything more sad, more desperate, more pathetically adorable than a cat forced to wear a costume? No, probably not. Which is why we totally love the Algonquin Hotel’s annual Copy Cats Round Table. The round table is meant as a feline homage to all of the literary greats that have passed through the Algonquins vaunted doors, like Dorothy Parker and Alexander Woollcott. What that has to do with dressing your cat up like a fairy, I don’t know, but I don’t question greatness. I just laugh and appreciate it for what it is. More cats in costumes after the jump!

I’ve been working at The Frisky for quite a while now and I have heard my share of cray stories. From a man who died from having sex with a hornets nest to a couple of Finnish journalists who pooped their pants on a bus just to find out what would happen if they did, I’m hard pressed to find a story that shocks me. And yet, Kristina Michelle Brown of Oklahoma City, has managed to arouse my bafflement. The 23-year-old was charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon on Monday after a bizarre kerfuffle with her 72-year-old neighbor.
According to police reports, Brown stood outside her neighbor’s house with a knife screaming, “Come outside. I know you are in there. Do you wanna die?”
Obviously, her elderly neighbor wasn’t in the mood to die, so he called the cops instead. When police asked Brown what the neighbor did to her, she replied,“I had sex with my cat and everyone knows.” Keep reading »
Oh, I’m sorry, were you talking to me? I’m a little distracted by this acrobatic cat troupe. They’re called the Amazing Acro-Cats, and they’re a 13-cat touring troupe of feline talent. Their owner/Cat Leader is Next Level Crazy Cat Lady Samantha Martin, who’s trained her cats to do actual tricks. Do you know how hard it is to teach a cat to do anything? Anything? Listen, I love Colonel Mustard, but he is a raging, non-compliant cat jerk and won’t do anything I ask (up to and including actually covering his poop in the litter box). So these guys? They are brilliant little cat angels. [Boston Magazine]
Kitten Wasabi-chan was brutally injured by an errant crow attack as a stray on the streets of Japan. A kind passerby picked up Wasabi-chan and decided to care for her. Wasabi’s jaw was damaged and she required regular tube feedings, but hated having the tube stuck down her throat. So her owners came up with a novel solution: knit cute-as-hell costumes for Wasabi-chan to wear while being fed, that would prevent her from pulling her feeding tube out. In addition to her cheeky mushroom look, Wasabi-chan’s also worn hot pink and more — peep them after the jump. [Metro] Keep reading »
