Snoopybabe is more famous in China than [Insert Something Famous In China] and he is just an adorable kitty cat. Snoopy has 275,000 followers on Weibo (China’s version of Twitter ) and 190,000 on Instagram. Is this remotely surprising? Look at him. His droopy eyes make him look sad and longing like North West grasping at hope for a normal childhood. Oh, it is devastatingly adorable. It’s kind of like when a baby trips and falls and starts crying but you get all happy inside even though they are sad because their faces are so squishy. Read more on College Candy…

It’s a daily habit that has turned into a daily ritual: I settle onto the train with my coffee, pull my iPhone from out of my purse, and click open my Instagram app to see what Pudge is up to. Pudge (above) isn’t a friend’s cat or a family member’s cat or even a cat I’ve met in real life. Pudge is an Internet-famous cat. She’s my favorite Internet-famous cat.
I love and always have loved cats — at one point, my parents had nine cats when I was growing up — and even I can admit that sometimes being a pet owner is a pain in the butt. With Pudge, I can look at cute pictures and videos in small doses when I feel like it … and then put my phone back in my purse and not have to deal with anyone clawing at the bedroom door while I’m trying to have sex.
After the jump, here are 10 reasons Internet-famous cats are better than real cats — in GIFs!
That fancy shmancy new sensor on the iPhone 5s that allows you to unlock your phone with a quick scan of your fingerprint? Turns out it also works for pets! TechCrunch tested the technology on a cat’s paw, and while it took a few attempts, sure enough, the phone was able to identify the cat’s unique paw print. When other cats’ paws were scanned, the sensor could tell they were impostors and refused to unlock. What does this mean? Well, Apple’s fingerprint technology is even more impressive than we all thought, and you can finally get your cat its own iPhone and not have to worry about other cats stealing it. No matter what species you are, that shit is secure. [TechCrunch]

This just in: Australia’s been taken over by enormous cats. Well, sort of: The country’s Northern Territory is apparently overrun with feral cats that weigh up to 45 lbs; to smaller creatures, they’re basically killing machines, Vice reports, alongside a pretty stunning image. It’s posing a threat to the area’s biodiversity. “Even a small cat will eat several birds, reptiles, or mammals in a 24-hour period,” says a land official. “So you do the math on that, one cat might be eating 2,000 animals a year.” Read more at Newser…
Colonel Meow is revered among Internet cat obsessives for his perpetually smug scowl, and now he has even more reason to sneer at his adoring public.
Guinness World Records has officially recognized the two-year-old Himalayan-Persian crossbreed as the cat with the longest fur.
In order to get the hair-raising honor, three independent vets each meticulously measured 10 strands of kitty fur and came up with an average length that was submitted to Guinness. Read more at Huffington Post…
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]
