Celebrate International Cat Day With These Fun Cat Themed Housewares!

Did you know that today is International Cat Day? Founded in 2002 by Cathy cartoons to help single women come to terms with their never ending solitude,* International Cat Day is a day to celebrate, reflect, and buy shit on Etsy. To that end, I’ve assembled a list of excellent cat-themed housewares, as just because you’re not allowed to have 100 actual cats doesn’t mean you can’t still be surrounded by hundreds of feline eyes wherever you go. So brush the hair off your shirt, click through these wonderful items, and adopt a few more of the internet’s favorite animal. Full disclosure: I may or may not have already purchased all of these things for my new place. More »

Animals In Addition To Cats I’d Like To See On The Cover Of Magazines

Animals In Addition To Cats I'd Like To See On The Cover Of Magazines

Have you seen the cover of Women’s Day from 1964? It’s… really only cats. Just cat picture after cat picture. It’s magnificent. According to the description in The Village Voice:

Since it’s adorably fuzzy, impossibly cute, and somehow able to predict the specifics of our tech future, you might think that the January 1964 issue of Woman’s Day somehow had to be guest-edited in Japan. But no. It is instead exactly what it looks like: a magazine issue that doesn’t just announce what the future will be like: It actually resembles that future. Just pages after the article “Your Fabulous Future” predicts that mothers will carry “a pocket device” with a “pocket radio-television-telephone” that will “enable her to survey her children no matter where they are playing,” the prescient souls at Woman’s Day actually demonstrate exactly what–besides America’s children–will most often appear on everyone’s pocket TV/communicators: adorable kitties.

Right, just in case you were feeling a need to break out of the mold, I’ve been thinking about some other options. Namely: More »

A New “Cat Cafe” Is Opening

A New "Cat Cafe" Is Opening

There are lots of things you can put with a cup of coffee to improve it. Biscotti, for instance, which I only recently realized is delicious when you dip it in coffee (instead of just treating it like a cookie that failed to be delicious). Also, 1930′s music. Starbucks is onto that.

Also, cats. Dozens and dozens of cats. More »

I Want These Revé By René Chu Cat Ear Sunglasses So Badly And You Do, Too

Cats are one of the most wonderfully popular things in this peculiar subsection of the universe we call “fashion.” For goodness’ sake, even Karl Lagerfeld, the grumpiest man in the world, believes that cats deserve a special place in our hearts and on our magazines. Designer René Chu seems to agree, as she has debuted cat ear sunglasses for Revé that I am now completely obsessed with. More »

Wed Bed Dead Rum Tum Tugger Is Sexy But We Feel Weird About It

This week, we’re sitting things out because we don’t know anything about musicals–but Jennifer sure does. Another expert in the field is Flavorpill deputy editor (and longtime Gloss pal) Tyler Coates. In today’s installment of WBD, they’re butting heads on three of the world’s most famous musical cats (no, not piano cat): they’re playing with bad boy Rum Tum Tugger, the magical Mr Mistoffelees and tragic glamour cat Grizabella. Will Tugger’s raw sex appeal prevail? Or magic? This is weird. More »

‘Des Hommes Et Des Chatons’ (Men And Kittens) Is The Best Tumblr I’ve Discovered All Month

'Des Hommes Et Des Chatons' (Men And Kittens) Is The Best Tumblr I've Discovered All Month

Happy Friday, everyone! If you are still sitting at a desk in an office, chances are you are 100% checked out by now, for which I do not blame you. It’s fucking spring outside, at least in New York. Why not wile away the final thirty minutes of your work week by looking at pictures of cute men and handsome kittens? Because that’s what I’ve been doing for the past half hour or so.

As everyone knows, conventionally attractive people and cats are the two most viewed types of beings on the internet, and therein lies the genius of the Tumblr Des Hommes Et Des Chatons. (“Some men and some kittens.”) This visually appealing single-serving blog combines two great tastes that taste great together by scouring the internet for pictures of men and cats doing roughly the same pose and/or activity, then putting them together in an eye-gasm of greatness. See, folks? Cats are just like people! Or maybe people are just like cats. You be the judge. More »
