Codependent cat waits for his human all day by the door

Kodi is a pretty clingy cat. So, his human companion Sho Ko set up a camera to record the little critter while he was out. Turns out Kodi spends most of his day anxiously pacing by the front door making distressing meows waiting for him to come home. YouTube commenters have suggested that Sho Ko turn on talk radio to soothe the needy cat's nerves.

Bunny comes to the rescue of his kitty pal

Cats have a tendency to fit themselves into places that they have a hard time getting out of: behind refrigerators, the highest branches of a tree or, in this case, underneath a shed. Fortunately, for this kitteh, a bunny was on standby to help extricate it from its self-imposed prison. Read the rest

A quick lesson on the best way to give a cat a pill (can it really be this easy?)

Giving medicine to one of my cats – or any pet I've ever had – has always been a source of anxiety, for me as well as them. With their frantic squirming, strange cries, frightened glares, and ultimately letting the medicine fall out of their mouths, it's never pretty.

I at first thought that maybe the cat in the top video was just an abnormally people-pleasing feline, but then I found this other video (below) with more examples of cats taking their pill as if it were a piece of candy. Apparently there's a simple process to giving a cat a pill that I have never mastered, but I'll make sure to watch these videos again the next time I return from the vet's office with a sick cat.

Cat digs massage from severed Halloween hand

This is Kiko the cat. Her human companion, Leah Piercey of Newfoundland, Canada, has just learned that Kiko enjoys getting her rump massaged by a severed, mechanical crawling Halloween hand.

Hilarious? Or confirmation that cats don't actually need us?

Cat-sized camping tents

If you've ever stood in the camping section of a big box store and wondered how you could snag one of those miniature display tents for your pet, wonder no longer. Enter Cat Camp, an Australian company that has created teeny tiny tents for indoor cats. Their Cat Tents ($59.95) pitch like a human-sized tent but, to be clear, these are for inside the house, not the great outdoors.

We set out to create the most unique, high-quality cat bed. This product is modeled on full-size tent and made to look just like the real thing. Cat Camp is a great addition to any house and a cozy hideaway for all cats.

Cats love small, dark and comfy places - this behavior is instinctive so they can hide from predators and they naturally feel safe when the walls of a box or tent come into contact with their little furry bodies.

The cute, it hurts!

Raccoon leaves his trash-eating pals to hang with the kitties

It's either unbearably cute or the prologue to a rabies epidemic. No matter how you see it, this raccoon takes a pass at every cat in the neighborhood, searching for the one that'll be the life-long pal he's looking for. Or at the very least, find one that'll tolerate him for a few hours. Read the rest

Cats in Hats, as found in Japanese capsule vending machines

No matter how old you are it’s always fun to pause and check out what's being sold in Japanese capsule vending machines (called Gotcha Gotcha in Japan). You know the ones where you insert a couple coins, twist the knob, and out pops a crappy toy in a clear capsule. Only in Japan they aren’t crappy toys. They might not be particularly useful, but the items are often so strange, so intriguing, or so incredibly well-crafted you can’t help coughing up a couple bucks to see what you get.

This is what happened to me when I saw the Cat Hats: Aquarium-themed cat hats.

Here's the hashtag where all the cats in aquarium-themed hats reside.
