Feline stiff-arms

Oy, does my back hurt! In such cases the only effective nostrum is Cat Internet Stuff. Boingboing has six gifs of “Cats using one paw to repel inferior life forms.” There are six of them; I give you two: I love the back paw action in this one:

Swimming jaguar

Here, have a swimming jaguar. Although it’s clearly going underwater to get noms, it doesn’t seem to be distressed. And its underwater gyrations make it look for all the world like a cat floating in outer space. h/t: Sarah

Readers’ new kittens

So shoot me: I like cats and am perked up by feliniana at the end of the day. Reader “redlivingblue” sent a note with pictures of his two new kittens: Good morning! I just wanted to share a couple of quick pics of my new kittens. My wife and I named the female Kahleesi  (My wife […]

A good morning from Theo

Theo, the espresso-drinking cat whose staff is Laurie and Gethyn, found his way into an item of clothing. He also has a monologue: Theo: I am not moving until someone gets me some coffee!  

Three cat videos to end a long and painful week

I’ve officially become a Senior Jew because I can say the following words with great feeling: “OY!

Readers’ wildlife photos

First, let’s check on Stephen Barnard’s eagles.  He’s reported now that there are at least two chicks: he’s seen a pair and there may be more.  However, we don’t yet have a photo. But we do have a picture of parental care with Stephen’s caption: Getting everything just right. Watch out for the kids! I don’t […]

A finicky cat

We started this day with a finicky cat, and we’ll finish it with another. Reader Lori Way sent a photo of her fussy cat Peanut and an explanation: This photo goes with my comment on the fussy cat.  I mentioned how Peanut here sometimes will only eat his wet noms off a spoon, so we oblige. Here, […]

Two cats for Thursday morning

Every day I must receive at least fifteen items about cats from readers: photos, articles, websites, and so on (the most recent was a spate of emails about baby bobcats, who are über-cute). But were I to post all of them, this would turn into a cat website and I would be inundated with people telling […]
