Pizza Hut over run by Cats in Japan

internet-cats 
Okay people you know I'm kind of crazy for cats *nods* and also random Japanese videos *nods* and I also love pizza so today I'm delivering the trifecta! This first video (isn't my favourite) but introduces you to the four cats that appear within the other randomly awesome videos below (and yup I'm posting them all because they're bizarre and great!)

The cats by the way are Techno (the largest of all the cats and who seems to be the boss of the store) Hime the sweet white cat (who loves to sit on things), Dora the orange tabby and Detch the grey tiger. 

 "Grand Opening! -Pizza Cat! Store-"


Now for a whole lot of random-ness below!

"I don’t allow even a speck of dust, see?"
hint: Detch on a roomba vacuum

"Don't get cute with us, we're not working for money."
hint: Tencho eating(?) money :P 

"The spreadsheet demon!"
hint: Hime sitting on a keyboard and trying to eat a fake plant.

 "Vehicles just excite me. Funny, heh?"
hint: Detch pushing a cart 

"Hey boy, don’t you want change?"
hint: Hime opening the cash register

"Here to protect the deliciousness of our pizza!"
hint: ??? :P 

"Destination checked! We'll be there safe driving."
hint: Dora playing with a toy 

"It's time for work, y'all!"
hint: Tencho hitting the alarm 

"Dressed to kill for the day!"
hint: all the cats in their uniforms

"Shut up, paws off the phone! They're all for me!"
hint: Hime sitting on the phone

"Morning assembly! Fire us up!"
hint: ???

Whatever you do make sure you have watched at least one video for the catchy theme cry at the end!

I hope this made your Monday - thanks Japan :)

Introducing Jack Gepetto

internet_cats
Today's cat is a cutie, let's all say hi to Jack Gepetto, a rescue cat who has a special feature :)


jack gepetto

Jack according to his website, was born with a fused jaw and although he can't open his mouth, he has developed a slight overbite, allowing enough space to be able to eat and drink normally (although a little messy!) and where his famous tongue appears from.

source
Despite the vet's suggestion to enthunaise Jack as a kitten the family choose the much happier option and thankfully we have Jack gracing our present today :)

source
 Check out this cutie!

source
I love all the little drawings that appear on his instagram too!

source
There is mention of Jack sharing certain similarities with one Scratchy the cat (which I can totes see)

You can follow Jack via his website or instagram for more photos and cuteness!

Top 10 Cat Dresses

top10 
 I thought it was time to share some super cute cat dresses from around the internets :)

source 1 / 2
 First up two cute dresses from modloth, you might have to zoom your eyes in but they both have a super sweet cat print :)
source 1 / 2
 A loose dress and a more fitted dress but both super cat-centric!

source 1 / 2
 As much as I like bold cat print, I do appreciate the more subtle print as well :)

source 1 / 2
 Okay the dress on the left isn't subtle but that guy on the right is all class and the cats are actually sequinned - so tempted to buy this for my wedding photography gigs :)

source 1 / 2
 The last two are crazy expensive but I thought would include for fun!

Cat Slowly Rises from Couch

internet-cats
I'm not sure if I should openly admit this, but the video did make me laugh


Sympathies for the black and white cat though, seems ginger is a bit too territorial!
(Let's hope things are more friendly around the house since the taping.)

Happy Monday!

52 week project 11/25

52

This week Ben bought me some flowers and I decided to use one stem creatively :)

A portrait of Gremlin, once a week, every week for the rest of the year 

This photo probably won't help the fact that whenever someone meets Gremlin for the first time they call him a girl, actually for the first week I was totes guilty of doing the same :p

(sorry Gremlin!)

All about Burrito Cats

internet_cats

I'm here to tell you all about the awesome Meme Burrito Cats!

burrito cats

It pretty much involves wrapping your cat up like a burrito and then adding it to instagram with the hilarious hashtag #purrito 

source 1 / 2
Green or yellow purrito kitty?

source 1 / 2
kitten in a sock or cat in a rug, errr, I mean burrito!

source 1 / 2
 Besides the cats looking seriously unimpressed they do look crazy toasty warm :)

source 1 / 2
 Towel or ski pant leg?

or flannel arm sleeve?
source 1 / 2
So it is a silly meme but there is a more serious side to wrapping your cat up.   Jackson Galaxy in a segment from My cat from Hell explains the "burrito technique" as a way to comfort a cat by swaddling them tightly and hopefully allowing them to calm down from a stressful situation.  The site, Vet Street actually provides some pretty awesome instructions and photos for wrapping up your cat, especially if your cat is not so happy about letting you cut their nails or giving them medicine!

So it's a meme that's hilarious, cute and practical all in one :)
