Alright, Alright, Cat Ladies (And Gents): Here Are The Stars Of The Kitten Half-Time Show At Puppy Bowl X

As an obsessive dog owner, it can be easy for me to forget that there are other creatures people keep as pets and love as much as I love Lucca. I was reminded of this yesterday, when I posted a link to the Puppy Bowl X gallery to FB and a friend, who happens to be a cat lover, reminded me that puppies are not the only stars of the Puppy Bowl. “Everyone knows that the Kitten Halftime Show is the real draw,” he said. Now, I don’t want to pit puppies and kittens against each other here, as there’s more than enough room for all kinds of cuteness in this world. So let’s give the Puppy Bowl kittens their due!

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

Didga Has Skills!

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. How her owner managed to train her to do this is beyond me, but I am all kinds of impressed. Unless, of course, this is some crazy Photoshop job and cats on skateboards don’t exist. But Happie the goat knows how to skateboard, so why not Didga? [Refinery29]

The Daily Squee: Watch This Old Footage Of Lil Bub When She Was Even Lil-er

Lil Bub As A Kitten!

We live in an era when “found footage” of Internet cat Lil Bub is treated as if someone found an old video of Jennifer Lawrence singing in her high school’s production of “The Sound Of Music.” It’s Lil Bub! At eight weeks old! Like all kittens, she is painfully adorable, but most noteworthy to me is that her face isn’t fucked up-looking yet. Like, her tongue is still resting inside her mouth normally. The tongue protrusion must have happened in kitty adolescence, poor thing.  [YouTube]

Prepare Your Cat For Battle With This Epic Suit Of Armor

The Etsy description for this “cat battle armor” is just too good not to post in its entirety:

“100% wearable, flexible, and comfortable, the Cat Battle Armor is a for-reals armor harness for your kitty. Completely hand-made from durable veg-tan leather, this is no mere costume piece. Your cat will become an unstoppable force for slaughter in this fully articulated suit, shielding him/her from foes while allowing unimpeded movement across the battlefield or living room floor. The imposing torso section features several riveted, articulated plates and a terrifying rack of dorsal spines. Your cat’s hindquarters are sheathed beneath exquisitely arrayed overlapping scales stitched to a soft leather backing, adorned with nickel silver dome rivets. Midnight black scales and plates are finished with a glossy protective coat and seamlessly join together like the petals of a deadly flower. Adjustable at the collar with elastic and two nickel silver buckles, and at the belly with grommeted corset-style lacing for a secure, comfortable fit.”

Convinced your fierce feline is ready for some armor of her own? It will cost you $500, but when it comes to outfitting your pet for the zombie apocalypse, spare no expense! [Etsy]

The Daily Squee: Baby Skunk In A Onesie Cuddling A Stuffed Sloth

There are so many things about this picture that are making my head spin, but it involves a onesie and it’s somehow appealing to my sense of cuteness, so I’m going with it…even though I have been known to have nightmares about skunks. Anyhow, Stunky the the skunk (I should specify that she’s someone’s PET) recently had surgery to get spayed, so her owner dressed put her in a puppy diaper and a onesie to keep her from scratching her stitches. This picture of Stunky, short for Stunkard, cuddling with her stuffed sloth, were posted by her owner. Because I know you’re wondering, YES, Stunky is descented, meaning she can’t spray. What the WHAT? I just kind of can’t even deal with how cute this is. There’s another picture of Stunky after the jump because I had to. [Reddit via Laughing Squid] Keep reading »

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

Baby Ocelot
Baby Jungle Cat + Cat Toy = Adorable!

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’s known as the “Dwarf Leopard”?! After watching this video of a 9-week-old ocelot playing on a scratching post, I’d like to, at age 28, renew my Ocelot Fan Club Membership. Click play, and I’m pretty sure you’ll want to join me.

Man Recreates Romantic Movie Scenes With A Dog, And It’s Not Quite As Creepy As It Sounds

It all started as a joke, as so many brilliant performance art projects do. Chris Naka thought it might be funny to recreate a romantic movie scene with his boss’ dog, Wrigley, and snap a photo to entertain his coworkers. Who could have guessed that Naka and Wrigley would have such amazing chemistry that the man and the pooch would start spending almost every lunch hour posing in various iconic embraces? So far the duo has recreated scenes from “Ghost,” “Dirty Dancing,” “Brokeback Mountain,” and many more. Click through to check out some of our favorites! And Lucca, start practicing your “I’m just a girl standing in front of a boy” speech now, because I know what I’m doing on my next trip to NYC… [People]

MIND. BLOWN.

Unless you live under a rock, you have probably heard that the Midwest and Northeast were blanketed under a snowstorm last night. Everyone is pissy because they had to dig their car out from eight inches of snow this morning. But a cat named Oreo is having the hardest day of them all. You see, when Oreo woke up today his entire world had TURNED UPSIDE DOWN, thus leading him to question everything he believed about reality. This is a video of Oreo discovering snow for the first time. He doesn’t seem too happy about it. [YouTube]
