I wish I had found this super cute costume a few days ago so I could’ve included it in my Caturday Collection: Cats in Costume post, but ah well, as a Star Wars-lover, I think it deserves a post of its own!
Megan, the creator of the costume says:
This year, I opted not to carve a pumpkin. Instead, I channeled my crafty impulses into making something for Lilly. Something awesome. I made her a Wicket costume.
Thank goodness Ewok headdresses are so poorly sewn (Ewoks may have opposable thumbs but they’re still pretty bad with a needle), it makes my ineptitude look authentic.
A couple weeks ago, a short clip was released featuring a couple of kittens battling with lightsabers. The Star Wars-loving cat lady in me is a bit ashamed for not posting it (I believe I was too busy
freaking out over readying myself for Dragon*Con), so here it is now, followed by its sequel, Jedi Kittens Strike Back, which was released a couple of days ago.
Will there be a third installment to complete the trilogy? I certainly hope so!
And for all of those who might be concerned about the treatment of the cats, they were treated very gently and were not harmed.
Pretty adorable, huh? Poor Pumba wasn’t quite so lucky…
This is one of the most awesome things I’ve ever seen. When I was quite young, I had a thing for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I don’t know if you can really be obsessed with something when you’re that young, but I definitely loved them (especially Michelangelo). I had toys, I had a tent, I even dressed up as one for Halloween. Years later, now a full fledged cat lady, I was happy to stumble upon this gem, and it’s totally made my day.
This whimsical piece of art was created by Ashley Culver as part of the Autumn Society Shell-Shock Ninja Turtles Show, which is today, June 3rd, in Philadelphia.
Just for fun, here’s Persephone and Michelangelo in an epic battle.
As we mentioned in our recent post about National Geographic’s Little Kitties for Big Cats, big cats such as lions, tigers, and cheetahs are losing numbers every day. According to National Geographic, in the last 50 years, the number of lions has decreased from 450,000 to a mere 20,000.
In order to raise awareness about the decline of big cats and of lions in particular, National Geographic is coming out with a new film called The Last Lions, which details the everyday challenges that lions must face in order to survive. It focuses on the lioness Mau di Tau (“Mother of Lions”) and the struggles she must overcome in order to protect her cubs. The film is coming to theaters on February 18th, and proceeds will go to the Cause an Uproar campaign and the Big Cats Initiative.
Let’s help save our dear kitties’ big, beautiful cousins!
