    Beneath "pounds" of matted fur laid a cat an animal defense league rescued last week. The Animal Rescue League and Wildlife Center in Pittsburgh shared Facebook photos of a cat brought into their clinic on Dec. 15 after its elderly owner moved into a nursing home. In the shocking photos taken before the medical team began shaving off "pounds" of fur, the cat laid beneath piles of "severe matting" or "dreadlocks." The rescue team estimated the cat had been "neglected for years."

    Cats need between 12 and 16 hours of sleep per day, so with all that practice it's no great mystery why cats are experts in the sleep department. Take a look at this list compiled by Bored Panda for example. As you can see, there is literally no place and no position in which a cat cannot sleep. Sink? No problem. Shoe? You got it. In a box? Bring it on! In a wine glass? Sure!

    A "Cats in Space" themed LED lightsaber battle is scheduled to take over St. James Park in San Jose on Saturday. Toronto event producers Newmindspace, who threw a bubble-blowing party in San Francisco's Dolores Park in 2015, have been throwing lightsaber battles internationally for years, including one last December in San Francisco's Justin Herman Plaza. Newmindspace's battles used to have a Star Wars theme until Lucasfilm came calling; post-settlement with the Bay Area company and they're now called "space battles" and can't technically refer to the fighting weapon as a lightsaber. For $10 participants will be reserved lighted stick, with...

    Fresh light has been shone on Norwich's grisly medieval history, after archaeologists uncovered evidence suggesting the site of a proposed £7m car park was once a 13th Century leather workshop... Archaeologists have already dug seven trials trenches, each four metres by four metres, to investigate the low-lying site near to the River Wensum. An eighth trench is set to be dug and evaluated after planned demolition works have taken place, with analysis of any finds to feed into a new report in early 2015. Evaluation of the site to date has identified activity from the prehistoric period to the modern...

Henri, the existential cat, has been viewed on You Tube 15 million times. He also has a line of products. Grumpy cat, the cat with an underbite, has her own manager. And Maru is the most viewed cat of all with 224 million+ hits on You Tube.

    Everyone knows that sometimes the strangest animals can become friends, but this kitten is having none of it. When he meets the house lizards he doesn't even know what to do with them. So he overreacts. A lot. Thankfully the lizards just wait him out and eventually the cat gives himself a timeout off camera.

    In need of something cute? Cue the kittens! While cats are already known to sleep anywhere, with books and websites helping document it, one collection of pictures really raises the bar on awkward. Seen draped over a laundry rack, spooning one another on a couch, and even in one cat’s case planking in camouflaging white fur and bed sheets, the cats may also steer the envious idea that they get far more deeper and relaxing sleep than we do. Of course, with one cat seen nearly passed out inside a dyer, and another across the a face of a dog,...

    OREGON CITY, Ore. – A soldier from Oregon City and a feral cat from Afghanistan might be one of the world’s best pairs. They both saved each other’s lives, although the soldier is probably the only one who will admit that. Sgt. Jesse Knott met the stray cat while in one of the roughest, most dangerous places on earth. He was stationed at an Army base in southern Afghanistan when he noticed the feline roaming around the rugged base. He was a handsome cat, but had open wounds – deep cuts and blood. “I remember he came limping out from...

  • VIDEO: Man builds box tower as apology to cat

    "Rufus Tower" isn't your average internet cat video. Popular AV cat memes mostly fall into two categories: cats cutely doing something human, like playing the piano; or cats cutely being somewhere they shouldn't be, like on top of a Roomba. "Rufus Tower," shot by Australian commercial and music-video director Billy Browne, is different. It's about a cat feeling sad, and his owner trying to cheer him up – by building him a large and complex tower of cardboard boxes to play in. The five-minute video, starring Browne and his beleaguered orange cat Rufus, is up to a half million YouTube...

    Palm Springs, California - This stray kitten was stuck in the bumper of a Dodge minivan and survived a 25-mile drive to Palm Springs and an attack by four pit bulls, who mauled the car's bumper. It has been named Fender Lynx. A pack of pit bulls ripped through the front of a Southern California man’s minivan in a stunning display of force that would make Cujo cringe. So what drove the dogs to such destruction? A kitty stuck in the bumper area, Palm Springs police Sgt. Mike Kovaleff said Tuesday. The unidentified owner of the Dodge minivan was...
