Caturday felid trifecta: Cats wanting in, a cat realizing that it’s a cat, and a kitten climbs owner to drink milk from bottle

We have three items today, coming from readers in Brazil, Europe, and Japan! Reader Ronaldo, who obviously speaks Portuguese, sent me this video, translating the title (which, in English, is the title given above), and adding this: People are speaking in (Brazilian) Portuguese; female voices say, in a loose translation, “how cute”, “I didn’t know cats […]

The “most embarrassing moment” contest winner

When Leo Glenn won the contest with his story about having to bathe nude in a Japanese hot spring with his nether parts dyed bright red from his bathing trunks, he wrote this response (I asked him what kind of cat he’d like drawn in it): What a thrill to win the contest! Thank you so […]

Cat gets a brain freeze

This is a minimalist cat video, but it’s one of the best I’ve seen. The cat, named Napo, is having some ice cream. Now brain freeze, also called the “ice cream headache,” is a real phenomenon, and scientists have theories about how it works. For one explanation, go here, and for a general overview go here. h/t: […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs: Special travel edition

Reader Susan Heller sent me a bunch of photos from her recent (April) trip to Istanbul, a city I’ve visited three times and absolutely love. So did she. Her are her “wildlife photos” from that fabled town. I’m not in the habit of posting travel photos, so keep on sending me wildlife , but these were […]

Caturday felids trifecta: Cat masseuses, Japanese stroller man, and the woman with a thousand cats

Once again it’s your lucky day, as kind readers have sent me three cat items for the week. The first comprises a series of three videos showing cats giving massages. Granted, they’re not as thorough as human massages, but the cuteness factor more than compensates. This first one looks like a Bengal cat, the future breed […]

Tuesday cartoon

This one, sent by reader Paul, is by Hillary B. Price, one of her Rhymes with Orange strips. Many of you will recognize the problem.

Hiroko’s book on “Neko Shirt”

Hiroko Kubota, a crack embroidery artist who made my beautiful Hili shirt, has now come out with a book of her creations called “Neko Shirt” (“neko” is Japanese for “cat”).  It’s available only from Amazon Japan, so unless you have a yen for it (LOL) you won’t be able to order it. (I, however, am […]

Caturday felid trifecta: New record for oldest living cat, a cat who forgot to cat, and Karl Lagerfeld’s spoiled moggie

To answer your first question, the cat, named Tiffany Two, is all of 26 years old. And according to the Guinness World Records site, she’s now the oldest living cat: Born on March 13, 1988 in San Diego, California, Tiffany Two was bought by her owner Sharon Voorhees from a local pet shop when the […]

Didga shows off

It’s Friday afternoon, and for many of us that means that drinks are forthcoming. Here at WEIT, it means that there’s an end-of-the-week cat. This week it’s the awesome skateboarding and parkouring cat Didga, star of many internet videos. Here’s a brand new one, just posted today. It shows that he has many talents. Doesn’t he […]

Cat paws = teddy bears

This picture from imageshack is surely a Photoshop job, but it’s still clever. Maybe an industrious reader would want to try it on their own cat and send me the results (no prize here; just my undying appreciation). I am not responsible for the missing apostrophe. h/t: Diane G.
