Paul Kweton’s Rocking Chair Includes a Cat Nook

With summer on the way, it’s not difficult to imagine the pleasure of sitting in a rocking chair on the porch as you watch the sunset with a beverage in hand.

What would make that even better? Rocking with your beloved companion animal, of course.

Architect Paul Kweton has designed a rocking chair with just that intention. The prototype for his “rocking-2-gether” chair combines a rocking chair with a pet house so that you and your furry friend can enjoy the comfort and relaxation of sitting together.

According to Kweton, the hybrid furniture piece “combines the idea of shelter and body relaxation and pushes its functionality to a different, more personal level.”

Hello, Kitty! America’s Next Top Model Does a Sanrio-Themed Shoot

You’ve got Catster Mail!

Do you think you’re a fierce feline?

Fierce enough to pose in Hello Kitty couture?

That’s exactly what the contestants of America’s Next Top Model were required to do!

Donning 40-pound architectural Hello Kitty pieces, the models had to work it in a Hello Kitty-themed photo shoot, and it wasn’t easy!

But the cat is out of the bag. No one can smile as wide with her eyes as Hello Kitty can — after all, she’s got no mouth to smile with!

Via Oh No They Didn’t 

Thanks, You Guys! My Purrday Celebration Was MEGAULTRAPAWSOME!

Hello everypawdy! Thank you fur joining me in another FURday column, and as I promised, today is going to be all about ME (like was about someone else EVER), and my PURRDAY! Sometimes in life we need to have a budget purrty and even when I didn’t have any cool decorations, I was happy with my Fancy Feast cake and getting lots of pampering from my momma. What else I can ask? Oh well — my momma say that we have to be a romantic fur survive when you are broke lol.

Thanks to you guys, I got many purrsents fur my purrday — so my shopaholic needs were MORE than covered, yeeiii!! I Love You Guys!

Let’s start with my celebration pics. My celebration was fur three days: yeii, like a big fancy weeding. I wore that day a gorgeous satin dress that my furriend Kelly Wolf sent me long time ago, this was the purrfect time fur wear it.

Fur some reason I got very very sleepy after all the excitement …

 Since I got sleepy I decided to keep celebrating the next day. On Sunday I wore a purrple two-pieces outfit. Very cute, very sassy.

Oh, guys, I’m super lucky because I’m TOTALLY addicted to All About…Yoshi! Dog Bows & More bows and they sent me two gorgeous bows! Fur sure, I need a new outfit fur that blue bow! lol. Thanks a lot, Diana!

Like, a thousand bows, a dress, catnip ball, chocolates fur my momma, Hello Kitty placemat, and OMG a super purrrsonalized card, LOVE IT GIRL thanks sooo much fur everything!!

You know, guys, now that I’m four, I have learned many things — but the most imPURRtant one is that I thought I could handle catnip like a responsible furchild bu t… I guess not!

The Pitter Patter of Charlotte Olympia’s Cat-Faced Flats

Charlotte Olympia created the “It” cat shoe of 2011 with her collection of feline-inspired flats, heels, and platforms that sold out in stores.

They graced the soles of fashion-savvy starlets such as Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Katy Perry. 

Just in time for summer, Olympia has refreshed the blood reds and leopard prints of last year’s collection with a velvet skimmer in cool shades of black, blue, and pink. While the cat flat still features the same signature embroidered feline face and pointed ears, she has added grosgrain trim and yarn embroidery to give an updated espadrille look. 

The shoes, which are handcrafted in Italy and come with a handy Polaroid to help keep track of them in your closet, are selling out quickly through the designer’s website, despite their hefty pricetag. While feline fashionistas may have had their paws crossed that the lighter look would lead to softer pricing, Neiman Marcus is currently stocking the Capri kitties at $845 a pair! 

What We’re Obsessed With: The Limited-Edition Leopard-Print Bike from Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana takes a ride on the wild side with this leopard-print bicycle!

The limited-edition cruiser, dubbed the Animalier Bike, is part of the D&G Spring/Summer 2012 collection, and showcases the fashion flair people have come to expect from the name.

An homage to vintage bikes, the Animalier features gold gilt components, a luxurious leather seat, and a bike bell embellished with the D&G logo.

It’s sure to turn heads when you go pedaling down the street on it. That’s if you’ve got a few (hundred) bucks to spare!
