  • Marine United With Missing Cat after Four Years [Article and Video at source]

    ABC 7 Eyewitness News ^ | February 1, 2016
    Monday, February 01, 2016 11:21AM BISMARK, ND -- It's a truth that cats don't always come back, but what if they come back, but the owner is gone? The Connell family have lived happily in North Dakota since 2013, but a member of their family is missing: Hemi, their cat. Robert Connell saved Hemi in 2009, when he found the cat on his engine block in North Carolina. But when the Marine and his family moved to a military base, Hemi was believed lost. So naturally, the cat went looking. "I was a little nervous about him not coming...

    Why one determined feline enthusiast has embarked on a quixotic journey to determine which basketball players own--or would consider owning--a pet cat. An otherwise ordinary basketball fan named Alex recognized someone walking into a recent Chicago Bulls game and thought: Wait, is that Dikembe Mutombo? Then something else occurred to him. "I thought about running after him and asking about cats," he said. "I'm really regretting that I didn't." Alex is a 34-year-old radio producer who enjoys cooking, gardening and meditation. He's also the anonymous owner of a website that, somehow, has become a cult hit in basketball circles. It's...

  • 8 Reasons We Should Elect A Cat for President

    Last month, a letter from Ayn Rand to “Cat Fancy” magazine was unearthed in which Rand argued she could “demonstrate objectively that cats are of a great value.” I think Rand is onto something- cats are the ultimate laissez faire animals. I would go as far as to say we should replace all politicians with cats. Lest you think this is a ludicrous suggestion, I would direct you to a strong body of historical precedent for non-human electoral candidates, including Morris the Cat, who ran for president in 1992. 1.Our system of checks and balances is totally out of whack....

    SAN JOSE, Calif. — Spock the cat is suffering from a case of mistaken identity. Spock’s owner wants her neighbors to know that he really is just a lovable and mischievous domestic cat, and not a bobcat or other wild animal. Collen Pizarev told the San Jose Mercury News that a neighbor accused her of harboring a bobcat, after seeing her 27-pound, 46-inch Maine Coon peering out the window. Another neighbor mistook the massive cat for a lynx.

A kind Imam has decided to remedy this by opening up his mosque to the stray cats and kittens, so they can eat and safely rest their heads away from the perils of the outdoors. Imam Mustafa Efe calls the cats "guests" of the mosque, and they've made themselves quite at home. They sit down on the plush...

    This is Merlin the cat modeling the dragon haircut he got courtesy of the Main Lion Cat Grooming Salon in Bumf*ck Paoli, Pennsylvania (it's behind the Starbucks on Plank Ave). I'm not sure how much the dragon cut costs, but their lion cuts go for $65, so probably somewhere around there. That might sound expensive, but if you live in Paoli, Pennsylvania, I imagine there's literally nothing else to spend your money on except saving up to move you and your cat the hell out of there.

The video has received over 700,000 views in two days. A friendly orange and white tabby is playfully following a toddler in a puffy snowsuit through a field of snow and at first he appears amicable enough, continually rubbing against the little girl and wanting her attention. But when the kitty decided the girl isn't paying him quite the amount...

    The new viral craze is apparently scaring cats with cucumbers, because the Internet is a weird place and humans enjoy low-grade animal cruelty as long as it's adorable. But National Geographic reports that we should all maybe not be scaring our cats with cucumbers. According to Upvoted, the first cat-scared-by-cucumber video appears to have been uploaded in May and went viral by July or so. Countless others followed, to the point where Reddit has an entire Cucumbers Scaring Cats community. The idea behind these videos is that if you put a cucumber behind a cat, it'll freak out when it...

    Cats have long been notorious for their picky eating habits, but a new study now suggests that humans shouldn't be too quick to dismiss a cat's selective behaviour as finicky. The study from the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia found that pickiness may not be the cause of feline food aversions. Instead, the presence of bitter tastes may raise cautionary flags to these carnivores.

With this feline Meyers Briggs test, they found that your fuzzy roommates had basically the same personalities as African lions, being dominant, impulsive and neurotic. Sure, they’re also...
