    This kitten is evidently not a fan of strangers in the house, and she knows a few kung fu moves to put some fear into the... ceramic cat. Although it's unlikely the ceramic cat will fight back, it doesn't stop this brave kitten from putting on a fight.

    Anti-feminist blogs have been getting a lot of attention recently, as all manner of people take to the internet to explain why they just don’t need it.

    She has only 3 fully formed legs because of a birth defect, she's named after an "Adventure Time" character -- and she's a terror on tissue rolls. --- Today's Monday Miracle is Shoko the Pirate, a peg-legged kitten who was scooped up from a foster situation after a pet store in Connecticut deemed her damaged goods. Despite her dinky fourth paw, Shoko still manages to hop and skip around with a playful verve -- and also seems to be cultivating a burgeoning portfolio of wrecked toilet rolls. Asked about the backstory to Shoko's shortened leg, her owner Lux Alptraum says,...

    Zeke, the cat, apparently had enough of being at a homeless animal shelter. The clever cat got on the phone and dialed 911. According to ABC news, after 911 was dialed and no one responded to the dispatcher queries, the call was disconnected. But then the emergency worker called back to make sure there wasn’t a real problem. The staff member went to the office to investigate and there she found handsome Zeke lounging across the phone with the handset off the hook. He, of course, was blissfully unaware of the hubbub he had just caused. His quirky story was...

Peeps weighed just 9 ounces when she was saved by a kind woman from a shelter that couldn’t keep her. “This is a kitten I rescued 4 weeks ago, she was 3 weeks old. She was at a shelter where they were going to put her down the day I got her. They said she was un-adoptable due to her birth defect. Her back legs aren’t straight, and they point outwards which made her walking very awkward, like a wobble,” said Samantha.

    Explanation: Nebulas are perhaps as famous for being identified with familiar shapes as perhaps cats are for getting into trouble. Still, no known cat could have created the vast Cat's Paw Nebula visible in Scorpius. At 5,500 light years distant, Cat's Paw is an emission nebula with a red color that originates from an abundance of ionized hydrogen atoms. Alternatively known as the Bear Claw Nebula or NGC 6334, stars nearly ten times the mass of our Sun have been born there in only the past few million years. Pictured above is a deep field image of the Cat's Paw...
