Caturday felid trifecta: Rescue cat getting a bath says “No more!”, world’s cutest kittens, black cat with vitilago turns white

From Hi Homer!, a reliable site for all things felid, we have this poor kitty getting a bath, and howling what for all the world sounds like “No more!”


Bored Panda has a post with “20+ of the cutest kittens ever“, and, being a connoisseur of cute kittens, I have to admit that these are up there. Here are a few of my favorites:

Look at those eyes!

In humans, vitiligo is a disease that involves the inactivation of cells that produce the pigment melanin, resulting in loss of color of the skin. It isn’t life threatening and doesn’t appear to have other symptoms, but it can make people look like patchworks of color. I believe Michael Jackson attributed his lightening skin to the disease.

At any rate, cats can apparently get the condition too, and here’s one, named Scrappy, who was formerly black and is now turning white (both skin and fur contain melanin). His pattern, at least in the interim, is lovely, and I guess he’s okay otherwise. Pictures from LoveMeow:

      I wonder if there’s an app for that?

        There is. You can record in landscape and flip it after as the phone does weird things and makes it too small. I use the program, “Rotate & Flip” on the iPhone.

    These great cat shots arouse the nurturing instinct. You think…have we got any tuna? I guess that’s what’s called adaptation. There’s AND ours.

    How do you get a cat worth its whiskers to just sit there and submit to a bath? No point moaning, “No more,” if you’re not going to do anything about it. Is this training or brainwashing! 🙂

    And yes, LANDSCAPE!

    Totally squee kittens.

    I have had vitiligo for about 25 years, but fortunately for me it has been progressing pretty slowly. It does look striking in cats, however.

    That first kitty – that’s not a kitty. That’s a tribble with googly eyes.

    That first photograph, ‘the eyes’, can’t be real, can it? Photoshopped or is it a blind cat in maximum mydriasis?
    Great images.

    I’ve had vitiligo for 56 years and I’m a very white, white person. I no longer have any pigmented skin, which is great – I hated being spotted. Stunning on a kitty though!
