Imagine a place where cats roam free, where felines own the land. That place is a real island off the beautiful coast of Fukuoka, Japan. We've told you about this before, but it's been getting a lot of attention lately, and it's just so great, we needed to post an update. Often referred to simply as “Cat Heaven,” the island drew the affections of the photographer Fubirai, who chose to photograph the cats over five years. His photographic ... Read More
The artist Addie Wagenknecht is known for her critical examinations of internet culture. In the past, she has staged performance art pieces revealing the appeal of anonymity. She has created internet pages that refuse to load, revealing our urgent need for gratification through imagery. In Brussels’s recent Digital Now exhibit, she uses the internet and technology, tools that she admits are generally controlled by men, to create groundbreaking and ... Read More

Getting antsy waiting for the new season of Downton Abbey? I kinda am. Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait until 2014 (Jan 4, to be exact), until the series returns.
Luckily for us, however, the geniusly talented artist Kim Parkhurst has created a series of paintings which portray each of the major players as animals. And damned if she hasn't nailed the right animal for each character. Like Anna, above, as a greyhound? Perfect!
Even better, though, ... Read More
Pinterest is all about sharing joyful images, and kittens are all about sharing sweet, tender love. There is one very special calico cat who lives across the street from my family’s house, and while she loves to run away and hop on our lawn for some treats and snuggles, my husband-to-be and I don’t get the curl up with her as much as we’d like. Sometimes a gal just needs some eye candy to get her through a day without kitty kisses, and luckily, ... Read More

Venus the cat has a condition: total badassery. As you can see, she's got two different eye colors (AKA heterochromia) and a giant, perfectly straight splash of black that runs down half of her face. She pretty much looks like Two Face but I guess scientists have a name for this, too. They're speculating that this may make Venus a chimera. This means that, under rare circumstances, two genetically different embryos merged in the womb. This is basically the ... Read More

Thank you, internet gods!
What, I ask you, is better than cat videos? (Yes, I know: good sex, BUST magazine, coffee.) And what if someone, some genius, were to combine all the best cat videos from one month into a convenient video you could have on repeat all day?
Thank you, mother Russia! Not only do you have a theatre with cat performers (check out MCAT here), you give us our cat fix of the month.
While there's no way they could capture all of the cats of May, ... Read More

At five weeks old, Justin was found in North Pennsylvania on April 26 after being purposefully doused with an accelerant and lit on fire. On fire. A small, tiny, adorable kitten. I don’t understand this. Look at this face! Who could viciously attack this cuteness?While I may not be partial to the name Justin (hello, ex-boyfriend!), this particular Justin has my heart all ooey and gooey. I want to love him and hold him and feed him and care for him forever. ... Read More

Cat videos are awesome. But a cat dressed as a shark? On a Roomba? Chasing a duck? This is maybe the cutest, strangest, and funniest thing ever. And did I mention the dog dressed as a hammerhead shark at the end?

Here’s some Friday cuteness for you. It’s a Buzzfeed post that’s gone viral depicting a magical place of happiness and fur called CAT HEAVEN.
Well, it’s not actually called Cat Heaven. This place riddled – neig, COVERED – with cats is a Japanese island called Fukuoka. For the past five years, photographer Fubirai has documented the lives of semi-wild cats that inhabit the island, that are fed fish by ... Read More
