    This gives Pussy Riot new meaning. A man discovered a lonely kitten on the side of the road — only to have a pack of tiny cats emerge from the brush. In a now-viral clip, the lone baby feline meows at the man where the grass meets gravel — but in the next minute, Louisiana’s Robert Brantley is ambushed by a stampede of meowing kittens. “Oh, my gosh!” he exclaims in the video, which shows a seemingly never-ending kitten rampage. “I can’t take ya’ll. Oh, my gosh.” One by one, the little kitties sprang from the tall grass that towered...

    The devices—developed by Elon Musk’s SpaceX—have a warming feature to prevent snow built up from disrupting the signal “Starlink works great until the cats find out that the dish gives off a little heat on cold days,” For those concerned about cats outside in cold weather, Taylor clarifies they do have access to heated cat house. But even when temperatures reached minus 13 degrees Fahrenheit, the kitties still used the satellite dish as a $500 cat bed. “When the sun goes down, they head back to their house,”

    A 19-year-old cat named Gus was brought into a North Carolina shelter recently, and the Humane Society of Catawba County’s executive director, Jane Bowers, said his owner was “heartbroken.” Bowers told Daily Paws they were forced to surrender him because of unforeseen circumstances, the website reported Thursday. At the shelter, Gus received a screening that showed he was enjoying good health. However, even with the organization’s funds for extra health care and help from another location, Bowers said there was still concern about him having to spend the rest of his life in a shelter. But it was not long...

    When given the choice between a freely available meal and a meal trapped inside a puzzle, scientists have found most animals, such as dogs, bears, pigeons, pigs, goats, mice, rats, monkeys and other primates, prefer to work for their food - a concept known as contrafreeloading. When researchers provided a small sample of indoor cats with a food puzzle and a tray of food in a home environment, the pets ate more food from the free tray than from the puzzle. Even the most energetic individuals preferred to stick to the easy meal, according to activity sensors they wore during...

    My dear fellow FReepers, please lift my husband and my sweet kitty "Sam" up in prayer. Started behaving poorly last evening, fever, lethargy, loss of appetite, not much interested in water, and diarrhea. Not vomiting which is good. Today started treatment with cat-specialized probiotic and giving unflavored Pedialyte, from giving water plain last night to morning. Dear Lord Jesus, we don't have the funds for high vet fees. Please heal our big kitty baby. Please show us what to do. Amen.

    A cat that lived on the ninth floor of the collapsed Florida condo was miraculously found alive — and returned to his family — two weeks after the building came crashing down, according to reports Friday. The skinny black feline, Binx, was spotted wandering near the rubble of Champlain Towers South in Surfside Thursday night and taken to the rescue group Kitty Campus, according to local outlet WSVN. “Pets are family, and this is a miracle,” Maria Gaspari, a friend of the feline’s family told the station, adding she was overcome with joy.

    t’s the purrrfect apartment. The Post got an exclusive look inside Curtis Sliwa’s tiny Upper West Side studio apartment Wednesday — after the newly minted GOP mayoral nominee revealed that he and his wife share the space with 15 rescue cats. The 320-square-foot studio on West 87th Street and Central Park West is a veritable kitty heaven with furnishings more fit for felines than their human roommates. There’s three windows that face the street that are perfectly set up for bird watching, or an afternoon snooze in the sunshine, that have been retrofitted with chicken wire so the cats can...

    Having a pet can be an extremely fulfilling experience. You get companionship and with that, intriguing anecdotes tend to follow. However, not many stories would be able to match up with what Zul, a local TikToker, posted last Wednesday (June 9). It's not every day you come across a flooded home caused by your pet cats' mischievous actions. But for Zul, it wasn't the first time either. "I'm speechless guys, it's the second time. Both the same, when I'm sleeping with no one else home," Zul said. Zul doesn't only have one or two cats, he's got a clowder of...

    A kitten rescued from traffic by a Florida woman ended up taking an 80-mile ride in an Uber to an animal rescue facility. Kylie Gross said she was on her way to work in Hialeah, just outside of Miami, when she spotted a tiny kitten weaving through traffic. Gross, a nurse practitioner, said she was able to get the kitten into her car, but when she arrived at the clinic where she administers COVID-19 vaccines, the feline had vanished into the steering column. "When I got to work, I couldn't get her out of the car," Gross told WPBF-TV. "I...

    ...There is a history of presidential pets in the White House, most notably canine companions. But there have also been a few felines that have called 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. home, though not in over 10 years. Not been since George W.

Lincoln was known as an avid cat-lover. He had two cats while he was in the White House, Tabby and Dixie, and because...

Video footage recorded in a hospital in the Karabaglar district in Izmir, Turkey, showed the cat walking into the hospital with its kitten clutched in its mouth. People in the video can be seen stepping aside to allow the mother cat through the building, with some telling other people to move out of the way.

    A passenger plane was forced to return to the airport in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum after an angry cat, which somehow got into the cockpit, attacked the pilots shortly after takeoff, local media reports. This Wednesday's flight of the Sudanese Tarco airline bound for Qatar’s capital, Doha, was proceeding in a totally routine manner – that is, until a most unlikely passenger caused an emergency mid-air. Having departed from the Khartoum International Airport, the plane was in the air for roughly half an hour when an unregistered passenger was spotted inside the pilot’s cabin. The passenger in question was...

    DAVIE, Fla. (WPLG) – A man says he had to undergo multiple surgeries after he was mauled by a black leopard. It happened after he paid $150 to have “a full-contact experience” with the wild animal. Detectives with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) say the savage attack happened in an enclosure at a South Florida home owned by Michael Poggi. The man has a Facebook page saying he’s an exotic animal breeder. He is licensed to have the leopard. Investigators say Dwight Turner paid Poggi to play with the big cat, rub its belly and take pictures....
