You can get so much weird clothing off the internet, you could easily wander the streets dressed like a Vice Don't every day of your life. The two grandest obsessions of our generation are such weird clothing, and cats. And lists. Lots and lots of lists.  Everyone's got their two cents on this kitty bikini or that cat sweater, but you know you can only trust BUST when it comes to matters of such grave importance. Without further ado: send in the cats. We've got cats that cover your naughty bits. Cats with three eyes. Cats that are also women. Read More
If you haven’t heard of Cat Cafés, let me just let you in on this little bit of joy right now; it's a café, wait for it, where you get to hang with cats.  I KNOW RIGHT?! If you’re thinking, “Where have these been all my life?” or "Now I can stop trying to pet the strays on my street" you are definitely not alone. Cat Cafés started in Taiwan in the late 90's and became famous in Japan circa 2004. This unique and brilliant business model has yet to break into the American market… until now. Read More
  There’s nothing like being read to; simply put, being told a story makes ya feel loved.Shelter animals around the world deserve to feel special and cared for, and the Animal Rescue League of Berks County thought of an unusual way to nurture their underprivileged cats. As part of the shelter’s new program, kids from Grade 1 to Grade 8 visit the animals and read to them; the shelter reports that the kids’ reading improves and the animals are calmed by the voices.

Annette and Sue Amendola, sisters living in Brooklyn, New York, have been putting up a nativity scene in the lot next to their home for more than ten years. The real Christmas miracle, though, is the fantastic colony of feral cats that takes over the space annually. They curl up between the figurines and cuddle on the warm hay bale that serves as a manger and, duh, it's freakin' adorable.  According to the Amendola sisters, when they lay the baby Jesus in the manger every December 25th, the cats are quick to topple him over and claim the space for themselves.

  Imagine a place where cats roam free, where felines own the land. That place is a real island off the beautiful coast of Fukuoka, Japan. We've told you about this before, but it's been getting a lot of attention lately, and it's just so great, we needed to post an update. Often referred to simply as “Cat Heaven,” the island drew the affections of the photographer Fubirai, who chose to photograph the cats over five years. His photographic creations capture the tenderness, vitality, strength, and downright sweetness of these semi-feral cats. Read More
  The artist Addie Wagenknecht is known for her critical examinations of internet culture. In the past, she has staged performance art pieces revealing the appeal of anonymity. She has created internet pages that refuse to load, revealing our urgent need for gratification through imagery. In Brussels’s recent Digital Now exhibit, she uses the internet and technology, tools that she admits are generally controlled by men, to create groundbreaking and sometimes unsettling portraits of modern womanhood.

Getting antsy waiting for the new season of Downton Abbey? I kinda am. Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait until 2014 (Jan 4, to be exact), until the series returns. Luckily for us, however, the geniusly talented artist Kim Parkhurst has created a series of paintings which portray each of the major players as animals. And damned if she hasn't nailed the right animal for each character. Read More
Pinterest is all about sharing joyful images, and kittens are all about sharing sweet, tender love. There is one very special calico cat who lives across the street from my family’s house, and while she loves to run away and hop on our lawn for some treats and snuggles, my husband-to-be and I don’t get the curl up with her as much as we’d like. Sometimes a gal just needs some eye candy to get her through a day without kitty kisses, and luckily, Pinterest has us covered.    Below are ten of my all-time favorite Pinterest kitties for your viewing pleasure.

Venus the cat has a condition: total badassery. As you can see, she's got two different eye colors (AKA heterochromia) and a giant, perfectly straight splash of black that runs down half of her face. She pretty much looks like Two Face but I guess scientists have a name for this, too. They're speculating that this may make Venus a chimera. This means that, under rare circumstances, two genetically different embryos merged in the womb. This is basically the opposite of identical twins, where the fertilized egg would separate to form two different embryos. Read More
Thank you, internet gods! What, I ask you, is better than cat videos? (Yes, I know: good sex, BUST magazine, coffee.) And what if someone, some genius, were to combine all the best cat videos from one month into a convenient video you could have on repeat all day? Thank you, mother Russia! Not only do you have a theatre with cat performers (check out MCAT here), you give us our cat fix of the month. Read More
