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.

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 […]

This is part two of Caturday Felids; Greg posted part one yesterday. Today’s CF is a brief update on the status of Mietek the Kitten, rescued by Elzbieta and Andrzej the Second (the staff of Leon).

Caturday felids (on Tuesday)

Caturday felid triefecta: Adventure cats, residents of Japan’s “cat island” saved before typhoon,

Today’s trifecta—the last Caturday post for a while—includes a readers’ cat section featuring moggies from two readers. First, the CBC has a featuring on Bodhi the Adventure Cat (click on screenshot), as well as a few other traveling moggies: While most would opt for dogs for outdoor pursuits, this Canmore resident says cats are the perfect […]

Caturday felid trifecta: Why cats land on their feet; cats with hats made from their own fur; New York’s most glamorous cats

Let’s begin with a cat quote sent in by reader Stuart: “I have cats because they have no artificially imposed, culturally prescribed sense of decorum.  They live in the moment.  If I had an aneurysm in the brain and dropped dead, I love knowing that as the paramedics carry me out, my cats are going […]
