Happy Saturday! You know what you deserve? You deserve a minute-long video of a tiny kitten playing with a huge, fluffy Samoyed. This dog is a veritable kitten playground. The kitten rolls around on the floor! The kitten bites the dog’s feet! The kitten jumps on the dog’s face! It’s beyond beyond. It’s just perfect. [via Gothamist]
Kittens: they grow up so fast! It seems like just yesterday that mine was but a fluffy palm-sized gremlin. (Now he’s a fat-faced, 15-pound young gentleman and a formidable paw-wrestling opponent. That boy is HUSKY.) Himajin Sokuhuo of Japan, who owns a to-die-for tabby, documented his kitten’s growth in a series of 12 photos — the first weigh-in comes in at 70 grams, and the last at 954. But who really cares how much this kitten weighs when it is SO FREAKING CUTE? Check out the full series at RocketNews24!
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. Looks like typical siblings to me! [Neatorama]
Look, I wouldn’t really eat a cat. Or a cat face. But there are no words for how scrumptiously adorable this little cross-eyed tabby cat is. This is Jarvis P. Weasely, a stray brought to the Saving Grace Animal Rescue in San Francisco, California, when he was just four weeks old. That’s where a woman named Daria found him, and decided to foster him. She explained:
“I used to oversee the kitten fostering program at Oakland Animal Services (OAS) a few years back. When I would go to the shelter, I would always look in on Jarvis because he was soooo adorable and scruffy. I was fostering kittens at my house but I couldn’t take him home as he had a bad URI… Some days he would vertically leap around the kennel which I always assumed were jumps for joy, but more likely he saw ghost. Once the kittens were out of my house, I brought him home to ‘foster’. He never left! He is here, has a home, drives me crazy, and is loved immensely.”
Jarvis has a slight depth perception problem, thanks to the lazy eye, but is otherwise perfectly healthy and happy. And super, super cute. [LoveMeow]
Kitten Wasabi-chan was brutally injured by an errant crow attack as a stray on the streets of Japan. A kind passerby picked up Wasabi-chan and decided to care for her. Wasabi’s jaw was damaged and she required regular tube feedings, but hated having the tube stuck down her throat. So her owners came up with a novel solution: knit cute-as-hell costumes for Wasabi-chan to wear while being fed, that would prevent her from pulling her feeding tube out. In addition to her cheeky mushroom look, Wasabi-chan’s also worn hot pink and more — peep them after the jump. [Metro] Keep reading »
Nevermind that ukulele player and singer DeAnne Smith is downright scrumptiously funny and witty. All that’s true. But this video moves up a notch from achingly cute to scorchingly adorable with the addition of DeAnne’s kitten, who seems to think he can strum the ukulele just as well as she can. [Laughing Squid]
This is Mug. This little cat is owned by my friends Renee and Tom, and I’m absolutely obsessed with her. No, me and Mug have never actually formally met, but that hasn’t stopped me from “liking” her Facebook page and spending at least a good two to 10 minutes going over her ridiculous photos every day.
And oh, did I tell you about her amazing back story? Keep reading »
Would that we could all have the nonchalant attitude of Claw Crane Cat, nonplussed by the large grabby crane that seems to be continually invading his personal space. This Russian kitty just keeps on idly grooming himself amidst the arcade hubbub. What a zen pro. [The Daily What]
If there’s one thing that fostering a kitten has taught me, it’s that I need a new litter box. My current litter situation is rather dire, it seems, and between two full-size poop machines and tiny little one, I’m definitely feeling the need to upgrade. But, as some of you know, finding a litter box that’s also tiny apartment-appropriate can be difficult. That’s why I’m angling for this Circa50 litter box from Modernist Cat. The Circa50 has a sleek modern design, and is a fashionable way to hide a smelly litter box. Plus, it doubles as a little side table! Sure, it’s a bit pricey, but you can’t put a price on taking care of a kitty poop problem. [$479, Modernist Cat]
A baboon at a petting zoo in Israel has a new, unlikely buddy: a baby kitten that wandered into the baboon’s pen and the two have become constant companions. The baboon doesn’t let the little kitten out of his sight, and can be seen grooming and holding the cat. [ABC]
