Caturday felid trifecta: Ozzie’s review of bad cats, the stone cats of a French village, shelter looking for home for “world’s worst cat”

I hope people still follow this feature, though I recognize that d*g lovers and other such miscreants may want to skip it. At any rate, here are a bunch of bad cats narrated by “Ozzy Man”. The worst one is the one who kicks the duckling at 0:21. I like the narration, so turn the […]

Caturday felid trifecta: How to put on a sweater while wearing a cat; oldest living cat in the U.S. and U.K.; Japanese robot cat waiter meows at restaurant customers

Roger Brawn posted this on YouTube: Tutorial demonstrating how to put on a jumper with minimum disturbance to the cat round your neck. Nuff said. ************* This cat, Tiger, is said to be the oldest living cat in America (though not in the world). As Cole and Marmalade report, Tiger, who lives in Illinois, is […]

Caturday felid trifecta: Bionic kitty with prosthetic back legs, cats forcing themselves into small containers, wearable replicas of your pet’s head

From My Modern Met we have the story of Vituzzo Superstar, a ginger tabby who lost his hind legs a year ago after he was run over by a car. But they fixed him up just a month ago! Click on screenshot to read the story: But kind humans took on his case. As the […]

Caturday felid trifecta: Chief Mousers of the Cabinet Office; cats in therapy; famous commuter cats; (and lagniappe)

Today we have a special feature: a video history of the “Downing Street Cats,” presented by Mark Felton Productions. These moggies include Larry, the current Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office, the twelfth cat to hold this official government position at 10 Downing Street. But I’m also a fan of Palmerston, a tuxedo cat who’s […]

Caturday felid trifecta: A beautiful rescue cat; a Cat of Size goes viral; famous British cat gets his own Christmas calendar.

First of all, here is one of the most unusual cats I’ve ever seen, on display at Cole and Marmalade (click on screenshot): Look at it! It has patches of tabby markings on a white body, heterochromia (odd-colored eyes), and a lovely dark patch on its nose: The story (indented): [In] 2018, a lonely kitten […]

Caturday felid trifecta: A history of the world according to cats, cats vs. ducks, cat barks like dog until caught and then meows (and lagniappe)

As usual, we have three items today. The first, well, it speaks for itself. Unfortunately, the story of “Unsinkable Sam,” the cat who supposedly survived three ship sinkings, may be apocryphal.  And they mispronounce “Felis” as “Fee-leese”! (There are other mispronunciations as well.) Really, this is from TED? I guess the rest of it is […]

Caturday felid trifecta: Cats in an invisible maze; the fluffy cats of Finland, and ZeFrank on Christmas and pets

It’s Caturday, and you know what that means: three bits for the ailurophiles among you.  First, “Kittisaurus” made an invisible maze of plastic wrap, and then set his cats loose in it. Of course the results would be very different were the walls opaque, so I’m not sure what point this video actually makes—except that […]

Caturday felid trifecta: Meowing and barking cash-register scanner in Japan; cat with world’s fluffiest tail; Polish nurse cat

Yes, Caturday felids will continue, but only if people read them (Santa is checking!). The first one is awesome, and could take place only in Japan. I’ll let the YouTube notes explain. Shot at a supermarket in Japan with self checkout stations that meow and bark every time you scan an item. The meowing registers […]

Caturday felid trifecta: A two-faced kitten; a house puma; Russian smuggles overweight cat into cabin of Aeroflot plane, gets caught (and lagniappe)

There are three short reports today, and I’m writing this well in advance, and you may be reading it while I’m in the air to Chicago. It will be automatically posted on Caturday, so I can say that the unbroken record of Caturday felid posts remains intact. The first piece, from the Cheezburger site (click […]

Caturday felids: Mrs. Chippy, the intrepid Antarctic cat

I rarely repost anything, but this was too appropriate not to show again. Originally posted in 2015, it’s appearing here once more because the subject is perfect for a trip to Antarctica. It is the tale of Mrs. Chippy, an intrepid exploring cat. The original post is below, which I’ve updated a bit. Tomorrow we’ll […]
