Keeping Cats As Pets Began 5,000 Years Ago

It might be hard to believe, but cats weren't always domesticated pets. Once upon a time, someone actually invited these tyrants into the house and the rest, as they say, is history. According to recent findings, the first wild cat (or what we now call a stray) began hanging out with humans maybe…

Baby Jesus Nativity Scene Is Taken Over By Cats

Gold, frankincense, myrrh ... and kitties? A snuggly bunch of feral cats have taken over a nativity scene in Brooklyn, laying in the manger between Mary and Joseph like they belong there instead of baby Jesus.

“You Shall Not Pass, Dog” Captures The Best Of Cat Vs. Dog Dynamics

Pets! They're weird. Weirdest of all, perhaps, is the unspoken dynamic between cats and dogs. Believed to despise one another, so much so that there is an animated movie about it (and a sequel!), it's really much less of an outright hatred and more just an implied narrative of canine fear. Most cats don't eve…

All Kitty Litter Commercials Should Star The Poopy Cat Dolls

Is there a word in the English language to describe when advertising is so delightful you don't even mind that it's advertising? Because that's the word I need for this Poopy Cat commercial, a Dutch subscription service for disposable cat litter boxes. (Um, brilliant, if environmentally unfriendly, idea, right?) Introducing the Poopy…

Life Dream Status: A Giant Cat Couch For Humans

OK, you guys, the good news is that this giant cat couch exists. The bad news is that it exists as part of an art installation and isn't currently for sale to the public. Sigh. I might need to buy, like, 500 pounds of fluffy cotton and 100 yards of furry fabric…

5 Things We Can Deduce From Karl Lagerfeld’s Longwinded Explanation For Why He Likes Cats

“With dogs you need a country house and you have to walk them in the street and I cannot walk in the street anymore, I’m too easy to recognize. In the age of cell phones, it’s not a pleasant thing to walk in the street. ... Cats are very easy to keep because they’re so…

The Daily Squee: Watch This Adorable Kitten Stalking A Cat

There's nothing like a quality cat video to start the week off right. Watch this precocious kitten named Paris (hopefully not someone's namesake) stake out her big brother Rocky through a gauzy white curtain. Patient Rocky sort of chills while  a very determined Paris tires herself out, although not without some pushback.

This Adorable Kitty Is A Pot Smuggler

So while you were busy playing Candy Crush, cats started smuggling drugs. Guards at a prison in Moldova noticed one particular pussy was frequently entering the prison through a small hole in the fence.
