I’m sure you’ve all heard of the adorable cartoon called “Simon’s Cat” by artist and animator Simon Tofield. There are many adorable videos on the Simon’s Cat Youtube Channel. This is one of my favorites:
All of the Simon’s Cat videos are not only freakin’ adorable, but they ring incredibly honest to cat behavior! You can’t help but smile. If you love Simon’s Cat like I do, I have some awesome news. A company called Xskins has a bunch of great phone covers (not only iPhone, but Samsung and Blackberry too!), laptop covers, and even wall art! There are so many unique and very cool designs that it would be impossible not to find something you like (if you like any of the following samples, just click the sample pic to be taken to the order page!).
The last one is my favorite, but there are MANY more designs to choose from!
The BEST PART about Xskins now offering Simon’s Cat skins, however, is that they are holding a Cutest Cat Competition! All you do is like the Xskins Facebook Page, go to the contest portion, and upload a photo of your cat. If your cat wins the most votes, you win a VERY awesome CUSTOM, EXCLUSIVE drawing of your cat by Simon Tofield printed on a phone case, AND you win a $150 USD (£100) gift card to spend however you like at the Xskins store!! How awesome is that?! I’ve entered Pickles the Drummer into the contest, and you guys should enter too. Wouldn’t it be awesome if someone’s cat from MCL could win? Give it a try! At the very least, get yourself or someone you know one of these fantastic covers–great Christmas stocking stuffer! <3
Enter here! Contest ends November 21st!
When I was a kid, I loved reading, and naturally my favorite books were about cats! Today, I’d like to offer you a look at a children’s book with lovely illustrations called How The Cat Got Its Whiskers by Harris Tobias and illustrated by Evalena Jönsson Lunde.
The story begins introducing our feline heroes, who are completely bald! In this fairytale, “when the world was new,” cats have no fur. The King of Cats and his subjects are freezing cold, and they need something to keep them warm. They wrap themselves in blankets to provide warmth, but this is simply not good enough!
The King of Cats must find an answer to this problem.
The King of Cats sends his four trusted amabassadors to the ends of the earth to talk to other animals to discover their secrets of staying warm. The four amabassadors each visit the Kingdom of the Fishes, the Kingdom of the Birds, the Kingdom of the Snakes, and the Kingdom of the Rats. Each Kingdom sends the ambassador back to the King with a glorious new outfit to try on–everything from scales, to feathers, to snakeskin, to see if they provide the warmth the cats need… Except for the clever Rats, who try to trick the King of Cats without revealing their secrets of warmth!
The King of Cats does not like to be fooled. This means war with the rats, and leads to the King’s final solution to his problem.
This is a book I would have adored as a kid, and I would have spent many hours trying to replicate the pretty illustrations. You and your little one will just love to see the different outfits from the other animal kingdoms the King tries on, and laugh at his reactions to each outfit! This is a fun, quick read, with an engaging but easy to understand story. What little cat lover wouldn’t adore a fairytale about a kingdom of kitty cats?
The book is available as an e-book at a steal for both Kindle and Nook! You can also get your hands on a beautiful printed copy at CreateSpace. I don’t have any children, but I don’t think I could resist an e-book copy all for myself!
As sad as I will be to have to stop cycling when it gets colder, I love the fall, and I especially love pumpkins. You know who else loves pumpkins? Big Cats!! The wonderful over at Big Cat Rescue collect unused/unsold pumpkins from local retailers to give them to the big kitties, and the results are awesome. Watch these big cats romp and frolic over pumpkins! They just love them!
I haven’t talked too much about it, but I’ve been in training for my first ever full triathlon which takes places this coming Saturday! Cats (as well all know too well) are particularly athletic animals, running and jumping and pouncing, and Web Designer Nicholas Longtin thought they would be great at the Olympics. For a little added hilarity, he edited cat faces onto Olympic Athletes (making them… Cathletes?)! They are pretty amusing. Here are a few of my favorites:
Man, this really makes me wish there was a Cat Olympics… hahaha! What event would your kitty take the Gold in?
I don’t know where this came from or why it exists, but it absolutely kills me. I think this gif wins the internet. The only source I could find was the original post on Tumblr, but internet searching hasn’t gotten me much in the way of where this originated.
It is, however, my new favorite of all the animated cat gifs out there.
