Ca$hcats is a Website that Shows Cool Cats With Cold Hard Cash

Cashcats

Apparently, taking pictures of your cat while it’s buried in piles of cash is a thing now–so much so that a website called Ca$hcats eventually came to be. It’s a site that accepts submissions from folks all over the world who have two things: a cat and lots of money (or lots of $1 bills.) Some pictures contain combo cats and stacks of cash, while others have a single feline curled up on a cushy bed of paper bills.

Wouldn’t it be funny though, if the cat decided to stretch and proceed to scratch the bills apart mid-shoot? Yeah, I bet that would put this strange trend to a stop if it happened enough to owners with now-empty wallets.

Head on over to Ca$hcats to check out some shots of cats with their cash.

Uber Delivers Adoptable Kittens On-Demand for National Cat Day

Uber Kittens

Every year, people all across the country celebrate cats and their awesomeness on October 29, which is known as National Cat Day. This year, Uber collaborated meme site Cheezburger to do something different. They set up a temporary service which ran for five hours to deliver adoptable kittens on demand to people who wanted one.

In case you haven’t heard of them, Uber is an app that lets people call for a car service with a tap of a button. They updated their app with a “KITTENS!” button last week, where users can instead opt to have a cat delivered instead of a car for $20. For that amount, users were treated to fifteen minutes of snuggling with a kitty plus cupcakes from Ace of Cakes while supplies lasted. They also had the option to adopt the kitten if they wanted to.

The best part? All of the proceeds were donated to local animal shelters. More details about the event that was here.

Aqualibrium: Where Fishes Grow Plants and Where Plants Grow Fishes

Aqualibrium

In a world of constant imbalance, it’s refreshing to see something that attempts to incorporate equilibrium into its very core. I’m talking about Aqualibrium, which is a combination planter and fish tank of sorts that allows fish to grow plants and vice versa. The top part of the tank is where various plants are growing, while the fish live at the bottom tank.

Water from the fish tank, which contains fish poop, among other things, is pumped up and carried to the upper tank, where it serves as fertilizer for the growing plants. On the other hand, the water is effectively filtered through the plants’ growing medium, where ammonia-neutralizing bacteria are found, so that the fishes have cleaner water to swim around in.

Cat Lounge Doubles As Cat Scratcher

71d-4V8xb6L._SL1500_

Oh sure, this has been around a long while. But it’s new to us, and surely some of you. It’s called the PetFusion Cat Scratcher Lounge and if you’re the owner of happy cats and unhappy furniture, this might be for you. Made from sandwiched layers of cardboard, the thing lets your feline friend both nap (as this is a cat’s primary bread-winning activity) and sharpen his claws (which he does, regardless of pay). It has attracted over 1,300 5-star reviews on Amazon, so we’re hoping it’s a sign cats like it. It weighs 10 pounds, so it’s unlikely your kitty will move it around the house or otherwise mess up your Feng Shui.

$50.

DOGTV: Now Dogs Can Watch TV While Their Owners are At Work

DogT

Don’t leave your dog with nothing to do when you’re off at work or running some errands. Flip over to the DOGTV channel instead, and let them watch some dog-themed shows on the tube while they wait for your return. “What’s DOGTV?”, you might ask. Well, it’s a television channel that features programming that’s “scientifically programmed” for your dog.

DOGTV’s 24/7 programing helps stimulate, entertain, relax and habituate dogs with shows that expose them to various movements, sounds, objects, experiences and behavior patterns, all from a dog’s point of view.

While not taking any official position, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) said any relaxation and stimulation for pets is good. But it doubted that all dogs will take to it.

‘Doctor Meow’ Bow Ties are for the Coolest Cats on the Block

Doctor Meow

The bow tie is part of Doctor Who’s signature outfit. He always dresses so sharply and his dapper look isn’t complete without that distinct bow tie. Now your cat can share that same look, thanks to the advent of Doctor Meow.

These are tiny, elastic bow ties in various colors featuring a variety of patterns that fit most felines. They were created by print designer Crystal Dennis from the Real Art creative studio. Crystal explained that she got the inspiration for the bow ties from the hit show.

Question for artist: Does your product have a fun story behind it? If so, what is it?

Answer: The 11th Doctor Who is a bowtie-wearing Time Lord from Gallifrey. If he’s getting flack on his style choices he’s like, “What? Bowties are cool!” (…or a Stetson, or a fez).

It’s a Dog Day Afternoon, Every Day: Dog Bark Park Inn

Dog Bark Park Inn

Ever wondered what it would feel like to live in a dog house? Well, wonder no more and check out the Dog Bark Park Inn instead. So it’s not exactly a dog house (as in, where your pet dog lives in), but it’s a literal dog house (meaning, it’s built in the shape of an actual dog–and in this, it’s a giant beagle.)

The bed and breakfast guesthouse was created by owners Dennis and Frances, who happen to be woodcarvers. They also make and sell chainsaw sculptures of beagles on-site. Dang, they must love beagles so much!Continue Reading

Every Cat Needs One: Solar System Cat Hat

Solar System Cat Hat

Your cat will probably hate you for it, but it’s just too funny to pass up on.

For many cat owners, their feline companions are the centers of the universe. This hat by Etsy seller Wendy Casazza Scruton just translates that fact into something tangible because it literally makes the cat the center of one particularly tiny universe. Wendy actually calls it the “cat fascinator” and describes it as being best for extra patient kitties.
