10 Reasons Internet-Famous Cats Are Better Than Real Cats — In GIFs!

reasons internet cats are better than real cats

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!

Drawing On Cats Is the Best Idea Instagram Has Ever Seen

i draw on cats instagram

Fellow cat fanatics, gather ’round: The Best Thing In The World has happened. If you didn’t already think the cats on your Instagram feed were cute enough, wait until you see the idraw_on_cats project. Creator Amanda Coffelt sketches extra personality into the photos of her cat Bob and his feline friends. The quirky drawings give us a guess of what our cats might be wishing they were really doing when they lounge around the house. Bob has been showcased blasting off in a rocket, taking pictures with his camera, flying through the air like a superhero…you know, typical cat stuff. Could this be more clever (and adorable)?

Cat Proves The iPhone 5s Fingerprint Sensor Also Works For Pawprints

Cat Unlocks iphone 5s
Watch this cat unlock an iPhone 5s!

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]

To Combat Big Cats, Aussies Deploy Bad Dogs

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, Internet Cat Legend, Wins “World’s Hairiest Cat,” A Guinness World Record

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…

What Do You Think Of The Prime Minister, Grumpy?

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.

Unhappily Costumed Cats Celebrate Past Literary Greats

Cat Fashion Show at the Algonquin Hotel

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!

Sex With Hornets?
A man had sex with a hornets nest and died. Read More »

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 »
