What can I say about a video that features Rue McClanahan of the Golden Girls and cats? Aside from the fact that it’s awesome?

And I here thought Betty White was the only golden girl who loved animals.

If you liked Hipster Puppies (and really, what kind of sick person wouldn’t?), then you’ll love Hipster Kitty. Here are some of my favorites:

caption: Kitty wishes her mom would stop referring to mashup artists as “cover bands”.

caption: This has to be the most boring Michel Gondry film Pork Chop has ever seen.

caption: “Buffalo Exchange won’t sell me new skinny jeans until I put on some pants.”

It’s so much more fun looking at pictures of hipster animals than actual hipsters.

There’s something strangely mesmerizing about this video of one cat massaging another cat:

Here is what does it for me about this video:
1. the totally relaxed expression on the face of the receiving cat
2. the neck nuzzle when the cat changes positions
3. the fact that the receiving cat has raccoon eyes

I wonder if there was a happy ending . . .

I don’t like to mock a cat, but . . .

This Scottish cat wandered into a rescue center this way.

“Luckily no damage was done and the little cat was very pleased to be freed from the discomfort that comes with having your head stuck inside a tin can.”

Seriously. Don’t litter! Your trash could end up on a cat’s head.

I am against domestic abuse. Most people are. But I am especially against the use of cats in domestic abuse.

Tonya Parrish owns more than 70 cats, but she’s not a cat lady. Rather, these cats were used by Parrish’s husband as a means to basically enslave her.

“All I did day and night was feed the cats, empty the litter boxes, take out the garbage,” Parrish said. “I had no time for me. I was the cats’ waitress.”

She tried setting up adoptions. But when adopters came to the door, her jobless, stay-at-home husband would say: “You’re not worthy.”

Now the abuser is dead of a drug overdose, and Parrish is struggling to find good homes for all the cats, hoping to whittle them down to seven.

Morals of the story:
1. do not meet a man over the internet and marry him two months later.
2. seven cats is probably still too many.

This is Rudolf, or maybe Bruno. She (yes, it’s a girl) lives at Auschwitz.

She’s causing a bit of controversy, in fact, because she refuses to live anywhere else–and an animal rights group expects local officials to build her a shelter on the grounds, even though she seems completely unperturbed by the -29 degree temperatures.

I see both sides here. The people who run the museum on the grounds aren’t responsible for this cat, yet at the same time, the animal rights people just want to keep her safe. But can we just talk about how this cat refuses to live anywhere else but Auschwitz? Auschwitz?!

If that isn’t creepy, I don’t know what is.
