Reddit user BillyAppletini wins the award for Best Human and Cat Friend. What endeavored to be just an amusing joke has turned into a phenomenon.
Fulfilling every geeky cat owner’s dream, Billy spent about a month designing, planning, and constructing a “CAT-AT” modeled after the four-legged imperial weapons featured in The Empire Strikes Back. All for his friend, who’s a lover of cats and Star Wars.
But the awesomeness doesn’t stop there. The interior of the CAT-AT features a decadent kitty lounge, complete with disco ball, artwork, and a fully stocked (fake!) bar.
Billy says he was planning on making it look as though his friend’s cats had ordered the CAT-AT on Amazon, but after wrecking his apartment to build the thing, he simply wanted to deliver the cat condo. His friend was thrilled to receive the amazing gift!
May the Furce be with you!
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!

Arnold Schwarzenegger had better watch out, because these strong cats are doing some serious weightlifting! Dumbbells, weight benches, and yoga mats are all part of their workout routines.
And by “workout” for some of these cats, I mean they have worked out a way to sleep on them. You know cats.
My own cats love to help me work out. Whenever I get on the floor at home to do crunches (not often, but whatever!), Moo has to be involved. He doesn’t actually want to work out himself, but he wants to sit on my chest and “help” by making the sit-up a little harder because he adds weight. So, technically, I guess he’s my workout buddy, right?
Here are seven more cats who would make good workout buddies:
Mitty is strong for her size! And she’s doing it wrong, but don’t tell her. Photo by Rooey202.
These two dumbbells, er … um … cats are working out in their dreams. Photo by webwawa.
Simon needs a spotter! That’s a lot of weight! Photo by lindymclean.
Arya is only four months old and she’s already working on the purrfect physique! Photo by freebird forever.
Clearly this is either pre-stretching or the cool-down part of this big boy’s workout. Photo by Runs With Scissors.
Stella appears to be getting ready to lift her own body weight. Wow! Photo by WeLeftBuckley.

There’s an old saying that “Dogs have owners and cats have staff,” and as their staff, we are sometimes unwittingly the subject of their almost (but not quite!) sadistic sense of humor.
Pooping outside the litter box, “marking” a favorite article of clothing, or napping in your freshly cleaned laundry (oh, did you just wash your darks? Good thing kitty has white fur!): animal accidents or practical jokes?
Illustrator H. Caldwell Tanner seems to have unearthed a collection of Cool Pranks 4 Cats, which may very well be the feline handbook for expertly “enriching” the lives of their human staff.
Rated from “Meowcenary” to “Calic’owned,” these pranks reveal what cats really mean when they leave a dead bird by the front door!
We’ve got you figured out, felines! (At least for now, anyway.)
What pranks have your cats played on you?
