A while back we had Star Wars cat, and he was pretty darned awesome. This is something different. Because they’re dogs. Duh.
I think we can safely say these pups have watched Star Wars a number of times. Probably enough times that they’re comfortable with their cosplaying.
Some people have said it’s cruel to do this to these dogs, but seriously, I don’t think these dogs care. Besides, I know they’ve seen the embarrassing costumes and outfits some of their houndy friends down at the local dog park have been made to wear and are thanking Sirius the dog star for allowing them to look cool, and be part of the whole Star Wars phenomenon.
Both dogs and cats know: Star Wars is cool!

And with the immortal words ‘and I think we have a cat on the pitch!’ a new legend is born.
Yes, a kitty decided to join in the beautiful game by not only running onto the soccer pitch, but also posing very glamorously before gracefully scampering to the side lines and allowing a human to pick him up and carry him off, no doubt to milk, fish, (if it’s my cat:) beef. And soft, soft kitty cushions and some extra fancy scratching posts to keep his claws in top condition.
Of course, there would be the world’s best catnip.
It’s a fantastic video because it’s real and not practised. Kitty decided to play soccer. Kitty ruled. Kitty made the players realise they were in the presence of a master of the game.
I do love the commentators saying how there was once a fox on the pitch, and how no one was trying to remove the ktity from the pitch.
Exactly. No one interrupts perfection until perfection decides it’s time for a nap.
Love this video! Yay, soccer cat!!!

Hey, it’s Saturday night, it’s 30 minutes to midnight, which means those of us who aren’t old and decrepit (that would be me) are dolling ourselves up, listening to some tunes and getting ready to head out for a night on the town (the cool way, which is around midnight). So what better time to show you how it’s really done. The cool you and I would like to own, that is.
DJ Dog here has that total nonchalant-I-couldn’t-care-less attitude down to an absolute science. Someone award that dog a Nobel prize in absolute cool.
If you ARE going out tonight, please spare the occasional thought of me, sitting at home, toiling away over the computer, writing and creating things for your entertainment. I’m also making stock for an incredible soup that will be put together tomorrow. Mr Marvin the cat, who is quite often as cool as DJ Dog lost his cool when it came to demanding ham I was slicing off the shoulder of ham I bought. Mind you, kitty doesn’t beg, he demands. And demands. And demands.
Perhaps someone needs to do a mashup of Black Ham Demanding Cat and Too Cool For School DJ Dog video. You know it would be awesome.

Okay, I know this is a commercial for milk, but it’s a great commercial. Because there is one question all cat owners have secretly asked themselves in the dead of night (or out camping, or in the midst of people telling horror stories…but never mentioned it because they knew it would be too terrifying to mention out loud…). One simple but so scary a question it makes you want to hang out with the monster under the bed instead of seriously contemplating this question. What is that question?
What if cats had thumbs?
Yes, we did give it away in the title a bit, but that’s only because we didn’t want to scare any of our readers who may be faint of heart, children, or scaredy-cats (yes, you can count me in the last one!).
It’s a question that’s haunted cat people for a long time. Probably lots and lots of years. I think Terry Pratchett once mentioned something about this terrifying question in a book he wrote about cats (not any of the Discworld novels, or anything he wrote with Neil Gaiman…I think it was called the Unadulterated Cat. It’s completely and utterly awesome, and I recommend any cat owner to pop on over to Amazon and buy it. Now.).
Now something called Cravendale milk has released a wonderful commercial in Britain about this nightmare-inducing question. And the ad is everything you could hope for and more. Seriously, I don’t usually put commercials on here, but this is one that needs to win an award. Or at least let the cat overlords know who are on their side when the thumb revolution comes.

I don’t know why the little puppy’s human was playing wolf howls, but puppy got into it.
First, the puppy was scared, and didn’t know what to do, because that is really creepy, seriously, it makes you think of being trapped out in the wilderness somewhere (aka outside the house) and being alone, and then either possibly being eaten by wolves or turned into a zombie, or rescued and raised as the next Tarzan. Sometimes it’s hard to tell.
Then puppy decided to get into it, and howl like the best of the wolves! (Perhaps he was auditioning for Neil Gaiman’s ’The Wolves In The Walls’.)
Note: while the puppy was all ‘what is that? It’s making my hackles rise. I’m just a puppy, but maybe I better join in and pretend to be one of them, come the apocalypse, my cat was not phased and simply sprawled out and said, ‘bring it on’. Okay, he didn’t say that, but his complete lack of catty interest said it all for him.
Enjoy puppy cuteness!!!
