Caturday felid trifecta: Sandal Cat, stray kitten interrupts television news, Simon’s Cat Naps

Even though I’m in Poland, you’ll still get Caturday felids—if you want them. Here are the usual three, starting with the famous Sandal Cat, one of the most widely-viewed cat gifs on the Internet. And rightly so.


LoveMeow tells the story (and shows a video) of an adorable stray kitten who interrupted a news broadcast of Nima Shaffe, a reporter for WXYZ  television in Detroit. The station’s report is below, which shows that they called the Humane Society to help the animal get adopted. I probably wouldn’t have done that, for The Humane Society, as far as I know, is not a no-kill shelter, though they might not execute kittens.

The kitten was named “Lucky Seven” because WXYZ is on channel 7.  Here she is, and I hope she found a home:



Here’s a recent episode of “Simon’s Cat Logic,” which includes not only the usual animation, but also some biology information from Cat Expert Nicky Trevorrow. The animation, “Catnap,” begins at 4:57, but be sure to watch Trevorrow’s explanation of why cats sleep in unusual places. And don’t forget that Tofield makes all the cat noises himself.

    Sandal Cat is kind of like a kinetic Maru.

    My local Humane Society is a no-kill shelter, whereas the city Animal Control Services is not. Often dogs and cats are transferred from ACS to the Humane Society, so they can be fostered if necessary, and then adopted. All of my dogs came from the Humane Society, and they’d been fostered by a colleague at work while undergoing treatment for (curable) skin conditions.
