Police have made an arrest in the case of Sticky the duct-taped cat.
Please note that the reporter’s name is Nefertiti, which is awesome. And also that more than 100 people have offered to adopt Sticky, who will hopefully have a happy ending.
Please enjoy these photos of adorably sleeping kitties from Dreaming of Kittens. These hold a special interest for me because, to date, Jon and I have only observed Jack truly and totally sacked out ONCE. I’m sure he sleeps when we’re not home, but even so, it’s a little bit strange.
This is Scarlett’s Magic.
At 17.1 inches from “shoulder to toe,” she is officially the world’s tallest cat.
It’s possible she’s also the world’s longest cat, but those results are still pending. At any rate, she’s quite cute and her owners are “absolutely thrilled,” as are other cats who can ask her to knock things off high shelves for them.
This is a cat who has been affectionately nicknamed Sticky, and this picture of her makes me cry.
And if somehow it doesn’t also make you cry, you might want to watch the below video, where you can see that Sticky is a sweet, gentle cat who just wants attention. The fact that someone did this to her is completely, totally horrifying.
What kind of world do we live in?
This commercial makes my heart melt into a gooey mess:
When I learn to drive, this is the car I’m getting:
Unfortunately, the site where my boyfriend found this was in Russian, so I have no idea how I would go about buying this magnificent automobile.
Two cats reenact the story of Frankenstein . . .
So, this video is kinda cute, but the best thing about it is that the doctor is played by “Sgt. Marshmallow.”
This is unnecessary.
Glamourpuss is a new book that collects photos of cats in wigs. I’m all for ridiculous cat-themed products, but I prefer my ridiculousness in the form of things for me, not my cat. Kitty wigs are completely absurd, and not in a good way. Something about them just makes my skin crawl.
I don’t care if Dooce did the introduction, I will still never buy this book or even attempt to get it for free. They’re robbing these cats of their cuteness!
This is Clyde, with his owner and her mom.
Three years ago, Clyde ran away from home in Tasmania. This week, he returned home after being found in Cloncurry.
For those of you who don’t know your Australian geography (and I didn’t), that’s a journey of approximately 2200 miles, with 200 miles of that being over a body of water!
Normally I’m not that into stories like this, but what strikes me so much with this one is that Clyde does not look like a super-scrappy cat who could survive on his own. He looks like a totally pampered puffball, and yet somehow he made it. And that is quite inspiring.
