We’ve all seen the videos of people who keep tigers or panthers as pets in their homes, or of these animals playing, and it’s easy to forget that these large animals are some of the most deadly predators out there.
Dogs just want to love you but cats, well, what the hell do cats want? They have a mind of their own, they seemingly do whatever the hell they want, and their habits are just so weird. Why is that? According to Ted-Ed, it’s because how they developed as both a solitary predator that had to hunt and kill smaller prey…
At just shy of $200 each, these Copycat Art Scratchers are an expensive way for your cat to stay entertained while you’re at work all day. But, relatively speaking, they’re a lot cheaper than your cat destroying an actual priceless piece of artwork like da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, or Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.
Approximately half of the content on the internet is cat videos, but the BBC managed to capture one that’s truly remarkable: high-speed footage of a wild Caracal as it deftly manages to spin itself around midair in order to land safely on its feet.
Every year, FixNation, a Los Angeles animal charity, holds an auction of designer cat houses to raise money. This year’s Fan Favorite is “Cat in the Fishbowl.” It’s very nice, but we’re pretty sure any cat will ignore it in favor of the box it came in.
San Francisco’s Kit Tea is the city’s first cat cafe, where patrons can hang out with (and adopt) the 10 to 15 felines milling around inside. A regular hour-long visit usually runs about $20, but now you can spend twice that time inside for free, thanks to this 360-degree video made by Everything is Film. The video…
When you think “fastest land animal,” what do you think of? American Pharaoh? Usain Bolt? Nope, until today that title belonged to Sarah, a cheetah who lived at the Cincinnati Zoo. Sarah died today at age 15.

During the ongoing anti-terror lockdown in Brussels, police have been asking for ‘radio silence’ from the press and social media, to help their operations. Twitter users in the city haven’t stopped tweeting: they’re just using cats instead of real information
So you’ve probably seen that viral video showing cats having the bejeezus scared out of them by a particularly snake-like vegetable: the lowly cucumber. Hilarious, right? Sure—if you’re a human. As a veterinary technician points out, this trending activity could cause lasting psychological problems for your feline…
You’ve seen them on television. You might know one in real life. Perhaps you even aspire to be one. Cat ladies have been around since time immemorial. This is their story.
After already conquering demographics including kids, teenagers, and those technically considred adults, Hasbro is reaching out to that last frontier of consumers: seniors, with a new toy line featuring lifelike robotic companion pets that only need affection, not feeding or bathroom breaks.
Anyone who’s watched a cat throwing up after munching on grass knows that our feline friends aren’t natural plant eaters. So you might be surprised to discover that these carnivorous animals share some important genes that are more typically associated with herbivores. And this might help explain why cats aren’t…
Cat sex videos are all the same. The tom mounts the female, she arches her back and moves her tail aside–a response called lordosis, by the way–and the two of them get down to the act. But soon afterwards, the yowling starts, followed by the spitting and swiping. Why so angry, kittycat?
Cats kill billions of small mammals, reptiles, and birds every year. In environments where cats have natural predators, like coyotes, this isn’t a problem. But left unchecked, cats can become an invasive species that damages local ecosystems.
