“The Notebook” Recreated By Kittens Is Almost As Good As The Ryan Gosling Version

“The Notebook” may be a favorite this time of year, but after 10 years (yes, 10!), it’s due for an upgrade. Like, say, kittens recreating its greatest moments.

The Daily Squee: A Skateboarding Cat Is Just As Amazing As She Sounds

Meet Didga the cat, skateboarder extraordinaire. Watch Didga around her Australian hometown on her board, jumping over dogs and looking generally unfazed at just how absurd it is that she’s a cat on a skateboard.

San Francisco Is Opening A Cat Cafe

Another reason to drop everything and move to San Francisco: a tea house/cat cafe called KitTea is planned to open in spring 2014.

The Daily Squee: A 9-Week-Old Ocelot At Play

When I was about 10, I decided my favorite animal was the ocelot. I liked the exotic sound of the name, the way it made me seem infinitely more cultured and knowledgeable than my simpleton friends who were still citing “cat” as their favorite animal. Plus, how could you not love a jungle cat that&#8217…

The Daily Squee: Kittens Reenact “The Lion King” … Sort Of

Kittens are basically useless at everything, which makes them perfect stand-ins for Disney movie reenactments. Some grownups with a lot of time on their hands corralled a small child and a bunch of behbeh kittehs for a somewhat comprehensive reenactment of “The Lion King,” songs included.
