This is Mug. This little cat is owned by my friends Renee and Tom, and I’m absolutely obsessed with her.

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.

Much of the region is still totally fucked, and could really use your thoughts, prayers and support. If you want to help, please check out this list of resources. Alternatively, if you simply want to enjoy a couple minutes of cuteness, we can get behind that, too. [YouTube]
