You might think you're smooth. But you'll never be as smooth as this black cat redirecting a robotic vacuum with its back leg WHILE continuing to aggressively stare down another cat. I mean, it doesn't even move its head as the vacuum approaches. So good.
Fox 47 News reports on a fast cat, left atop a car as it speeds down an interstate highway: "How that cat held on at high speed is amazing," says a local Humane Society rep. Read the rest
Just when you think you've seen everything, a cat in Bootle, England has been captured on camera using a door knocker to be let inside. The 26-year-old man who got the footage, Daniel Richardson, had pulled over to the side of the road when he saw the cat.
He told the Liverpool Echo Saturday:
I was in my car and I caught a glimpse of it happening.
Then I watched and the cat started to climb up the door again so I whipped out my phone to record it.
I looked and wondered if that had just really happened - I was baffled.
It is not something you see everyday.
He added, "It would have only made it better if someone came out to let it in."
There's no guarantee that the cat in your life won't cut you at the drop of a hat, but learning the correct way to pick one up might make it think twice before breaking off a shiv in one of your vital organs. Read the rest

It's customizable; I found setting it for "sleepy" and "relaxed" produced my particular fave timbre of cat-purr.
The sound of a purring cat is one of the most comforting sounds available and can help soothe and calm you down when you're feeling stressed. Naturally, it's not just the sound that is important, but it's also the presence of the warm cuddly cat. Purrli tries to recreate both the sound and the presence of your very own virtual cat through a custom sound engine modelled after real purrs.
With a purr that delicately changes over time, Purrli aims at making the experience as real and lively as possible. Just like a real cat, Purrli will call for your attention. Just be careful when adjusting the last slider, if you don't want to be nagged in the middle of your work.
Scroll down the page and read the testimonials -- it's quite interesting to see the varied reasons people enjoy hearing a virtual cat purr, including:

My cat that grew up with me during childhood died two or three years ago, and whenever I was upset, she would come and lay next to me and purr to calm me down. She would nap with me, and her purring would help put me to sleep. I really miss that. This cat purr generator sounds just like her, and it really helps with my anxiety, especially during large projects.

Thorin is a ragdoll kitteh who might have the world's longest cat tongue if such things are documented. Imagine that sandpaper tongue waking you up in the morning.
There's an Instagram of Thorin and friends:

We think cats are our pets but we are mistaken. The New Yorker interviews Abigail Tucker, author of The Lion in the Living Room: How House Cats Tamed Us and Took Over the World:
She explains how “cats domesticated themselves”—essentially by choosing proximity to people as their survival strategy—and then proceeded to infect one in three humans on Earth with a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii, which affects our behavior in ways that are still not entirely understood, although there is speculation that one of the symptoms might be an attraction to cats. Scientists estimate that there could be as many as a billion cats in the world, and their number continues to grow. So, if you feel like you live under your cat’s paw, you might as well get used to it. As Tucker says, “We’re never going to get control over these animals.”
This wonderful litter trapping pad keeps litter from being scattered all over my home.
I figured out my cat needed a 2nd litter box, and felt pretty smart. A few days later my home office was full of litter that had escaped the box on his paws and fur, I had forgotten to put a pad under the front of the box. I felt pretty silly. I tried a towel, because towels are pretty useful, but it didn't really help much.
This rubber mat does the trick.

This luxurious upholstered cat sofa by FelinEva is certainly a favorite of the French maid in the video. Watch her fondle it gently, quietly, as if she herself was a cat, a cat in fishnet stockings.
Will actual cats be as enamored? There's no real way to know until it's in your living room, right? I'd guess my cat would quickly inspect it and then promptly ignore it, because cat.
No mention of the sofa's cost on the website but we have to imagine it's going to set you back a pretty penny.
"Would you rather be a cat sofa?"
Now, if you're in the market for a cat sofa but are looking for something a bit more economical (and less over-the-top), check out the Paws & Purrs sofa bed for cats (and other small to medium pets). It's about $102.
A woman who goes by @brenaclifton on Twitter insists she doesn't have a cat, but was greeted by this cute kitty who popped out of the vent on the floor of her house. Just passing through!
