Animal Odd Couple: Curious Cat Plays with Dolphin!

We've seen curious cats play with their food, moths, iPads and even Crocodiles …but a dolphin?! Srsly?

Check out one of the most improbable – and adorable – animal pairings you've ever seen! The folks on a tour boat certainly got a shock when their cat, Thunder, started making friends with a couple of gregarious dolphins. These unlikely friends are clearly smitten with each other – but what do you think is really happening here? Is the cat indeed nuzzling and "marking" the dolphin as some have theorized, or is it simply a case of opposites attracting? 

Either way – enjoy this darling interspecies connection!

Ever wonder how to safely and efficiently wrap a cat? Wonder no more as the cheeky folks at FlippyCat have perfected the process!  We all know that cats love paper and better yet, crinkled paper, so for the most part, this patient little guy looks quite content in my opinion despite his mummified appearance mid-video….what do you think?

100 Cats Set Loose in IKEA

Screen shot 2010-09-09 at 6.53.39 PM

Hey! Check Out The New FAAAHCK Over Here!

What happens when you let 100 housecats loose in an enormous IKEA superstore? One clue: Not one high-tailed it to the $4.99 meatball line or ball pit of hell. 

Why Housecats You Ask?

The experiment of releasing 100 cats into IKEA was the brainchild of Mother London, IKEA UK's ad agency. As part of their new advertising campaign for IKEA, they wanted to see how 100 cats would make themselves at home inside a superstore.The result is a stylistically beautiful one-minute ad that is nothing short of adoro! 

Feh Tarty, creative director of the ad tells the Guardian, "Cats know better than anything what makes them feel happy inside, they live their lives in pursuit of their own comfort. So we released a hundred cats in to the Ikea Wembley store, for real, to see where they went and what furniture made them happy."

Hats off to Mother London for the beautifully executed finished piece. Check out the video below for a fun look behind the experiment of IKEA UK's release of 100 house cats into its Wembley store. 

ps. I particularly enjoyed watching the cats investigate the LACK, MUCK, FAARFEGNUTGEN, BERGSBO and AAACK models – didn't you?

Top Cat: Persian Puff Ball Wins 2009 Best in Show

Kuorii Gorilla of Cuzzoe

Did that furry toss pillow just meow at me?

The puffiest, poofiest, uber-fluffiest Persian cat you have ever seen in your life scratched out 650 other entries to land the coveted "Best in Show" prize at this year's "Catlanta" – the CFA International Cat Show in Atlanta held just last week. At only eight months old, Kuorii Gorilla of Cuzzoe (right) – nicknamed "Go Go" at home – is being touted as a "superb example of the Persian breed,” due to his massive bone structure, a round and smooth head, and over-the-top fluffy coat. 

When I first spotted this cat on CNN last night, it looked like the handler was petting some kind of fur throw or toss pillow – this cat is HUGE! 

Other finalists included a platinum Tonkinese male called "Purrtek's Syrah", a silver and white American Shorthair called "KCDancers Eye-of-the-Tiger", a Maine Coon called "Highlander Tony Bennett of Wenlock", and a Burmese cat called "Mar-chu Electra of Karleton".

Cat Agility Tourney?

In addition to the best in show contest, the International Cat Show also featured a kitty agility course which you simply have to see to believe. Check out the video below, and to learn more about Persian cats visit Cats 101 on Animal Planet.
