You're going to want to make a note of this.
The world's cutest way to mark a page is now just a click away! The Smile sticky memo notes bookmark tabs (yep, it's a mouthful) are available in utterly charming kitty designs that are seriously the cat's pajamas. If pajamas were sticky notes. You get it, right?
The sticky notes are about the same thickness as a Post-It and can be written on (if you're OK with defacing these fetching feline faces, that is). Just think about all the potential uses! Save your place in a book, mark an article in a magazine, or, you know, just decorate your computer with them. We won't judge.
Your friends will never say no to having their drink topped off when your favorite bottle is sporting one of these cutie pies on top!
(Okay, fine. Maybe your friends never turn down wine anyway. But you get the point. Also, we should probably hang out more.)
The cat and Dalmatian felt bottle toppers from Uncommon Goods are handmade from recycled materials by a self-taught artist from Kathmandu named Niru Adhikari. Clearly, her original works are inspired by her love of the animal kingdom, and we're inspired by her designs.
What you see here, folks, is an epic battle that's sure to go down in history. Just remember, you saw it here first.
On the right, of course, we have the always adorable Tardar Sauce, better known as Grumpy Cat. She apparently flew first class to SXSW, according to Cele|bitchy, and has gained legions of new fans, including The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder, who posted his picture with Tard to Instagram with the caption, "Me and my new love..."
But let's be real. As lovey dovey as the two appear to be, you know they were both vying to be the cutest face in Austin. Which one would get your vote? We have to admit, it's a tough call to make!
We love checking out Society6 for all kinds of artsy and pop culture-inspired cases for our iPhones, so you can imagine how pleased we were to discover its impressive assortment of Grumpy Cat iPhone covers.
Come to think of it, though, we imagine Grumpy Cat herself would not be so pleased.
There's American flag Grumpy Cat, Grumpy Cat reading Garfield, Grumpy Cat in black and white, and even Grumpy Cat interrupting (and not being impressed by) Sandro Botticelli's famous painting, The Birth of Venus.
You get the picture: Tardar Sauce wouldn't like any of these. But as unimpressed as our favorite sulking feline would be by these covers... we still love them.
When you move to a new city, it helps to know where to find others like you.
So, in honor of the arrival of Sumatran tigers Jae Jae and Melati at the London Zoo, the zoo launched an interactive Cat Map, where cat owners around the city can upload pictures, descriptions and locations of their domestic cats.
The tool takes a cue from field surveys of wild animals, and applies it to little cats. You can use the information to find out how many gray cats there are in a certain neighborhood, or how many tabbies are named Tiger, for example.
“Our two new tigers are big cat news, but we think little cats are important too,” says the map’s creator, Filip Hnizdo of the Zoological Society of London.
Not to worry — it’s not open only to Londoners. Those of us across the pond can make our kitties count on the map too.
Since Henri is an “expert in feline ennui, in all of its forms,” our favorite tormented cat teamed up with Friskies to help end one of catkind’s greatest afflictions — cat food boredom.
At first we were shocked by Henri’s sudden act of selflessness. After all, in his last video, he complained that all the other cats he lived with annoyed him in a unique way. Now he wants to help them? Could Henri actually have a soft side? Maybe he’s not as hardhearted as he seems? Well, watch the whole video before you jump to any conclusions.
Everyone knows a cat who thinks he’s a human. (They all do, right?)
This one has taken it to a new level: He sits like a person. Pictures of his amusing pose have gone viral after they were posted by Reddit user Kagrabular, who is a friend of the kitty’s owner.
Looking calm, cool and collected, the former shelter cat sits up like this on tabletops and on his kitty perch, “stoically looking out the window,” Kagrabular writes.
The owners were told when they adopted this little guy that his back legs were slightly malformed.
While they don’t know whether this was due to a past injury or if it’s something he was born with, he sits and runs funny, but he’s “in great health.”
If there's one thing we know to be true, it's that we just can't get enough sweet and whimsical animal-print clothes. If we had drawers filled with pawprint sweaters, and our closets were overflowing with kitty-print dresses, we'd still be on the hunt for more.
Our latest find: the Rendition tee from Anthropologie. The boatneck cotton tee is available in a multitude of colors and prints, including six animal patterns.
The vibrant colors, ranging from sky blue to orange and chartreuse, means this top can make a real statement when paired with jeans or a brightly colored skirt. Plus, the button detail at the neckline and ruched half-sleeves keep it from being too casual. The only real question? Do you want the Doxie print, the leopard, the Scottie or the birds?
Tard, we feel the same way about this particular Internet meme.
We're all familiar with Grumpy Cat and her adorable crabby face. And we're sure that, like us, you wish you had a Grumpy Cat of your own, if only to have someone around to share your crabbiness with every so often.
The original Grumpy Cat isn't available, but we've found the next best thing: A Grumpy Cat crochet pattern! That's right, you can crochet your own wee Grumpy Cat, to carry in your pocket or sit on your desk and remind you that frowny faces can be adorable, too. Sometimes.
The Grumpy Cat crochet pattern is the brainchild of Denise Ferguson, a pharmaceutical project manager with a crafty bent. For $5.50, Ferguson will send you a PDF of instructions for crocheting your own Grumpy Cat. This project requires a familiarity with basic crochet stitches (chain, single crochet, decrease) and an ability to read a pattern, as well as some basic crochet tools, including a crochet hook and a tapestry needle. But if you're conversant with crochet, you can easily whip up a Grumpy Cat of your own with Ferguson's directions.
