Watch Video

Best Coast singer Bethany Cosentino’s obsession with her big orange tabby cat Snacks is well-documented. So it should come as no surprise that Cosentino and her band mates made an entire video featuring kittens. Admittedly, this video for “Crazy for You” is a couple months old, but we figured today was as good a day as any to revel in a few minutes of purrrrfect harmony. [YouTube]

Just A Kitten & A Tigrillo Cub, Together At Last

According to the caption, this is a photo of a kitten frolicking with something called a tigrillo. What is a tigrillo? A tiger and a Brillo Pad? A tiger crossed with a BBQ grill? A tiger owned by Don Delillo? A tiger drunk on tempranillo? It’s anybody’s guess. What do you think?

A tiny cat in San Diego is getting about the biggest honor possible: A spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The cat in question is named Fizz Girl and she measures a measly 6 inches tall from floor to shoulder. As a result, she’s just been declared the world’s shortest living cat by the folks at Guinness World Records. Read more…

Chris Pratt’s Cat-gate

Chris Pratt, aka the husband of Anna Faris who you know from “Parks and Recreation,” is on cat lovers’ s**t lists. On Monday, he tweeted a photo of a big white fluffy cat along with the message, “Anyone in the LA area want a cat? Full disclosure, she’s old and prone to accidents. So sweet though. And was in Stuart Little. Literally.” Later he clarified that he and Anna were looking for a home for the 19-year-old cat because, “We have pugs and she’s too old to deal. She needs one on one attention.” He then shouted out to Amanda Knox, “So happy for you and your family!!! Want a cat?”

Obviously, this didn’t go over too well in the Twitter-verse. Which I understand. You can’t just replace an old cat with younger, cuter pups?!?! When you adopt a pet, you take care of it for life. It’s a serious commitment.

Apparently, the backlash has gotten to Chris. He took to his blog to clear up the situation.

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 from expressed antiviral proteins taken from rhesus monkeys, which have been known to block HIV and feline AIDS. Preliminary results found that the genes did in fact provide protection against the virus. What’s more, the genetic protection — and the cool glow-in-the-dark side effect — was passable from mother cat to kitten. So, researchers are hoping that they’ll be able to help prevent feline AIDS in kitties, and can use some of that research to figure out ways to combat AIDS in humans, too. So, yup, science is way cool. [Live Science] Keep reading »
