12 Ways to Make Your Cat Your Valentine

If you're already bummed to be single on Valentine's Day, other people's chocolate-scented romance shoved under your nose is just the icing on your irritated cake.

But don't skip out on all the good V-Day has to offer just because you're flying solo this holiday

Instead, improvise with what you already have. If your cat is number one in your heart 364 days out of the year, Feb. 14 shouldn't be the exception.

This Valentine's Day, snuggle up to your fuzzy furball instead of an actual human being. Because cats > people, every time.

A Song for Every Crazy Cat Person on the Internet

Even if your feline friend hasn't achieved the superstardom of Grumpy Cat or Lil Bub, you should love it anyway.

This animated short, produced by Animation Domination High-Def on Fox, features an adorable — and totally relatable — song for pet lovers. In the age of Internet cat stardom, it seems like a new celebrity kitty pops up every week, and many proud pet owners want a piece of the fame. But no matter how long you wait with camera in hand, your cat probably won't do anything cute, funny or even respond to its name

The tune ends with the humbling fact that despite owning a "regular" cat, the owner is happy with her little no-name fuzz buddy Read more...

Beam Them Up, Kitty: Artist Draws Adorable 'Star Trek' Cats

Set phasers to furry because these two felines are boldly going where no cat has gone before.

Maybe Kitty-Kirk and Kitty-Spock are more suited for battling laser pointers than Klingons, but they still look fetching in those Federation uniforms. Artist Jenny Parks loves to draw our fuzzy friends in all kinds of nerdy disguises, from The Avengers to Doctor Who. Parks' representations are particularly spot on, always using cats with just the right look to pay homage to the character

Parks created the Star Trek cats as part of an on-going project. "I hope to have [the project] finished in the next few weeks or so," Parks told Mashable Read more...

It's a Skateboarding Cat. Why Haven't You Clicked Yet?

Meet Didga and Ollie, an unlikely duo of skateboarding cat and remote-controlled board. The pair recently teamed up and set off for an adventure cruising around the coastal Australian town of Coolangatta, and taking it by storm.

Cat trainer and YouTube user CatManToo captured this rad cat contently cruising around the sunny beach town with the help of his motorized friend. Didja performs some pretty cool tricks — he deftly jumps on and off the skateboard, latching onto a tree and hopping over the shoulder of unsuspecting passerby. He's even brave enough to jump over the calmest Rottweiler you've ever seen. Read more...

Crazy Cat People, Your House Is Not Complete

Cat ownership comes with its challenges. Fluffy's independence makes her easy to care for, but she also has no problem walking all over anything while seeking the perfect nap perch

Computers, expensive speakers, bookshelves, sofas — all hers to climb, claw and curl up in.

Unless you could entice your feline with something even cooler. German designer Goldtatze ups the ante on kitty furniture with his masterful home installments dubbed "Cat Heaven."

Attaching the bridges, nests and crawl spaces to your ceiling and walls will definitely make your kitten purr, and keep your hard-earned personal items safe Read more...

Grumpy Cat Vine Videos Reveal Playful Side of Sour Puss

Don't end up on Grumpy Cat's bad side — she'll chomp on your hand, and enjoy it.

Grumpy Cat's prickly expression made her an Internet superstar, but we don't often see the famous kitty doing more than sitting like a grouch on a log. Now, thanks to a few new Vine videos, we can see a new, more fun side of Grumpy

The short videos, uploaded Wednesday, show Grumpy Cat playfully nibbling on string and a hand.

The cantankerous feline currently has 18,800 followers on Vine — compare that to nearly 3 million Facebook fans — so hopefully the new videos will be two of many six-second clips shared to boost Grumpy's presence on the mobile app.

'Cats' Is the 'Girls' Parody for the Millennial Feline

"I think I might be the meow of my generation. Or a meow of a generation."

The Pet Collective, known for their furry parodies of pop culture, tackles the controversial HBO comedy Girls in their latest video — never have cats been more angsty, self-centered and Millennial

Watch as these four felines cope with the daily struggles of being 20-somethings (or in cat age: six weeks) in the harsh, cold world. They learn the hard way that not everyone can reach Grumpy Cat's level of fame or have a gold-lined litter box

And if you're more into the human version of the television show, Girls debuts on HBO on Jan. 12. Read more...

Intelligent Cat 'Companion' Mimics Movements of Small Animals

Every indoor cat owner has felt it — that gnawing, guilt-inducing sensation that you're simply not providing enough entertainment or exercise for your homebound hunter. Kitty has grown bored with the feathers-on-a-fishing-rod toy, and you're not even around to wield it for most of the day. What to do?

Enter Egg, a Kickstarter project that bills itself as a cat companion rather than a cat toy. The brainchild of electrical engineer Jason O'Mara, Egg is a USB-powered, rechargeable device that rolls around, mimicking the erratic movements of a small animal. If it senses that your cat is on the brink of catching it, Egg will make a break for freedom while emitting alarmed squeaking noises. Read more...

Kittens Reenact 'The Lion King' in Adorable Video

Movie remakes are almost never as good as the original. This all-kitten version of The Lion King, however, comes close.

The Pet Collective is behind this fitting feline remake. The abbreviated reenactment, told through the eyes of a child narrator named Jackson, stars a cast of small kittens as the Disney classic's fearless lion pack

The video is shot on a cat playhouse with paper cutout characters and stuffed animal extras. Jackson even gives us a few adorably off-key bars of the film's most memorable songs, "Hakuna Matata" and "Can You Feel The Love Tonight". Read more...

Viral Video Recap: Christmas Fever Hits YouTube

Viral videos have come down with a serious case of Christmas fever lately

Action star Chuck Norris tried to top Jean-Claude Van Damme's epic Volvo ad split by debuting one of own (with the help of some serious digital enhancement), balancing on the wings of two planes with a Christmas tree-shaped lattice of 11 soldiers on his shoulders.

The popular YouTube series "Epic Rap Battles of History" pitted Charles Dickens' famous Christmas miser-turned-philanthropist Ebenezer Scrooge against a trio of persnickety rich dudes, including Donald Trump, J.P. Morgan and Kanye West Read more...

14 Cats That Are Ruining Christmas

'Tis the season for cats chewing up Christmas lights and getting in the way of your holiday cheer.

If there's one thing our feline companions are good for, it's hunkering down in the Christmas tree and making the decoration process impossible. Even if you do sneak some decor on the tree between a quick kitty meal, those pests are going to knock them all down when they jump back in later.

A big "Bah humbug!" to these cats for trying to ruin the season.

Lil Bub's Yule Log Video Is a Christmas Meowacle

Just when you thought you'd had enough holiday cheer, Lil Bub rekindled your spirit with the cutest yule log video in history. In the hour-long clip, Bub emits her signature squeaks and purrs while lounging before a roaring fire

Bub's human, Mike Bridavsky, shared the inspiration behind her yule log video with Mashable. "Well, I mean, what better gift than having an amazing magical woman space cat and a warm fire to grace your family for the holidays?" he said.

The perma-kitten is her usual smiling self, staring wide-eyed at the camera one moment and taking a quick cat-nap the other. If you can muster the strength to look away from Bub's tiny face, then this yule log complements your Christmas activities perfectly. Read more...

OK, Grumpy Cat may still be a Grinch, but she is joining in on some of the holiday festivities with her fellow feline pals

Grumpy, Colonel Meow, Hamilton the Hipster Cat, Nala Cat and Oskar the Blind teamed up to create a cheerful music video for Purina Friskies called "Hard to be a Cat at Christmas." Who can deny the difficulties of being four-legged this time of the year?

The viral video was created in hopes of raising awareness about shelter cats. For every view the video receives, Friskies will donate one can of food to cats in need. At the time of writing, the video had accrued more than 100,000 views. (The song is also available for download on iTunes.) Read more...

This Crazy Cat Litter Ad Is Just Meow-tlandish

The Dutch ad company that came up with this video might not be on-point when it comes to pop culture timelines, but they do get points for committing to absurdity.

And let's be fair, promoting a disposable litter box is no easy task — but the 'Poopy Cat Dolls' do it with style.

Parodying the now-defunct pop group The Pussycat Dolls, this musical ad shows the sassy side of five cats begging for a better litter option. The ad doesn't go into the benefits of disposable vs. stationary litter boxes, but we don't care

We'll take six for our cats at home, please. Read more...
