obbit

Yes, this beautiful recreation of a Hobbit hole from Lord of the Rings hides a litter box for a very lucky cat. It was created by the Hollywood prop builders at Super-Fan Builds for a guy who is a huge Tolkien fan. Everything on it is perfectly cat-safe and there’s even an Eye of Sauron scratching post so your cat can scratch his all-seeing eye out and save the day.

Clearly, the Fellowship didn’t consider using giant cats. It would have saved them a lot of trouble.

See the build video after the break.

thor cat

Yesterday was National Cat Day (yeah, apparently it’s a thing), and Marvel showed their love for felines everywhere by sharing some delightful superheroes-as-cats art. The style of the illustrations by Jenny Parks is similar to the Doctor Mew portraits she did earlier this year. They feature Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Iron Man.

indy cat bridge 1

If you have a cat that likes romping around the house or sleeping in unusual places, then you might need this Indiana Jones-inspired cat bridge. Made by Etsy seller Catastrophi Creations, the adventurous bridge is made from solid pine and the ends are reinforced with metal brackets. You can order a custom length, and then hang the rope bridge in a doorway and watch your cats run across it (and maybe even sleep on it). Bonus points if you make a tiny brown fedora for your kitty.

See more photos and a video of the bridge in use after the break.

atari cat scratcher

Cats deserve the best, and sometimes the best means giving them a fandom themed scratching post. If Industries has come up with some concepts that are purrfect, and it’s not surprising since they’re the folks who came up with the Bag End litter box idea. Their latest designs include a Catari, a scratching post that looks like an Atari joystick, and Ninelives, a scratcher that resembles a retro Nintendo controller.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity features a team of deadly assassins who take out all the bad guys. In this version, the assassins are cats. They’re all dressed up in their little hooded cloaks and they’re just as deadly as their human counterparts, but way more cute.

felicia hello kitty

I’ll bet you’re wondering about that picture. I’m just going to let Felicia Day’s quote be the explanation:

Now that I learned that Hello Kitty isn’t a cat but a little girl, my dreams can come true and this will be my future family portrait.

That quote is just one of the myriad reactions out there to the (OMG SHOCKING) news that Sanrio’s Hello Kitty isn’t a cat.

This news comes from a correction made by Sanrio to wording used by University of Hawaii anthropologist Christine R. Yano for her upcoming Hello Kitty retrospective at the Japanese American National Museum in October.

“I was corrected — very firmly,” Yano told the L.A. Times. “That’s one correction Sanrio made for my script for the show. Hello Kitty is not a cat. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it’s called Charmmy Kitty.”

Yep, Hello Kitty is not a cat. Charmy Kitty is a cat. Also, according to her back story her real name is Kitty White, she’s British, and her height and weight are measured in apples.

Cue “The More You Know” graphic.

cat desk

If you own a cat, you understand the dilemma of trying to work while attempting to keep your cat off your keyboard and from chewing on your headphones. Luckily LYCS Architecture understands this problem; they’ve come up with a CATable. The design has plenty of work space for your computer and your kitty. It features several holes and tunnels for a feline to scurry though. That should be enough to satisfy a cat’s curiosity and keep it entertained while you keep working. Hopefully, they will be available for sale at some point.
