So how do you top a bunch of excavators playing the world's most massive game of Jenga? You put them to use doing what they were designed for: building stuff. Except stuff, in this case, happens to be the world's tallest sand castle towering over 41 feet.
This short film by French director Loïc Bramoullé displays the coolest spacesuit I've ever seen. Not just because its mean range of weapons, but also for its (artificial) intelligence to make decisions that protect its owner—a cute cat that seems a bit out of place—from things like evil alien bees.
Veterinarians see some crazy things come through their office doors. But perhaps the most entertaining - at least in cases where the animals come out just fine - show up on x-rays. Owners bring their pets in because they're acting weird or not eating, and then you find out that Fluffy swallowed an alien. Whoops.
Twenty-seven wooden blocks weighing 600 pounds each? That's no regular game of Jenga—that's a job for a team of five giant, yet agile, Cat excavators and telehandlers to take on. Just some machines having fun.

This is Marshmallow—the incredible Houdini cat who can escape any cell at a veterinary clinic in Marseille, France, just by unlocking the door. The veterinary calls him the "king of evasion."
Seeing a smart cat walk on a treadmill to its plate of food tickles me more than it should. I scream out aww under my constant laughter. I must be a bad person. But let's be honest. Metaphorically, we've all been this cat before. We've seen our goal but we kept walking in place not knowing how to get there. Literally…
Here's a tiny kitten so happy to eat that he wiggles his ears out of pure enjoyment—or something—like Gizmo the mogwai. Apparently, animals moving their ears when they feel pleasure is a thing.
Interaction designer Chris Woebken has taken Halloween to its logical conclusion: helping one species pass for another.
After a too-long hiatus, we're happy to announce that Gizmodo's Photoshop Contest has returned. And what better occasion to inspire its revival than the brand new cat Monopoly token sitting our desk, just begging to be put in outrageous situations.
Scavenger hunt-loving hacker, Yusuke Katayama was arrested today after months on the run. Disgruntled for some reason, he sent viral death threats, and while evading Japanese police, he mentioned that information about his virus was strapped to a cat roaming Tokyo. Months later the cat was found, leading to his arrest.
No matter how bad I feel for Alphie, this cat is stupid. He was rushed to the emergency room after eating a TV aerial antenna. This is what happened, according to the owner Vanessa Waite:

I watch this amazingly cute cat doing amazingly cute things and I think it may not be real. I mean, it looks real, but it's so perfectly cute that it can be computer generated. You know, like Puss in Boots! Watch it and tell us: is this real?
Back in 1955, Mr. Walter Chandoha was apparently the world's most famous feline-snapper, and understandably everyone wanted to know how he took "magazine cover pictures" of kitties. I'm mostly intrigued about learning "how to be sure they move."
All I will say about this is that if you consider lending your iPad to your feline for some browser-based cat-game fun, please oh please wear a screen protector. Won't someone think of the chiiiiildren! [Games For Cats]
