Metafilter's Own Cat-Scan.com

This is one of the strangest stories I've seen in some time. I have some idea how these people got their cat wedged into the scanner, but not why.

The world, our world, is on fire

We inch towards war, a short step to nuclear, on the eastern plains of Europe. To the south, economies unravel. The climate collapses, like ice shelves into the sea. The struggle for social justice continues, two hopeful steps forward and one bitter step back, in a thousand places. Medicines fail, peace talks fail, the bioweb fails, one disappearing species at a time. TV news flickers with graphic violence, with hurt and inequality. Social media is filled with anger and retribution, through the mob or through anonymity. People are unhappy, worried, rage in frustration and impotence. We no longer go to the moon, but consider instead that the end days are finally approaching. Here, therefore, are some cats in Kimonos.

Yoga for Cats

Older shelter cats are often hard to place, and get overlooked at shelters. An Illinois no-kill shelter partnered with a yoga studio to raise money give some kitties more exposure. The results were adorable.

Making cats look silly, for a good cause

Saving birds' lives at the risk of making cats die of embarrassment
Domestic cats and tweety birds the world over have had a long-standing and rather one-sided feud: cats kill as many as 3.7 billion birds, mostly songbirds, every year in the US alone. One Vermont-based company, Birdsbesafe, is seeking to protect our feathery friends while imposing a little whimsical shame on our murdery, furry friends. How? With terrible, early-90s-esque scrunchies.

Bobcats live in houses too

Fort Griffin State Historic Site, just north of Albany, Texas, recently had one of its historic buildings claimed as a den by a mother bobcat and her two kittens. The site's trail cameras have been documenting their lives since: the first glimpse into the lives of roly-poly inhabitants of a well-protected stone building came in January. With uninvited visits by raccoons, skunks, coyotes, and male bobcats... [more inside]

RIP, Frank and Louie

Frank and Louie, the world's oldest Janus, or two-faced cat, has passed away in Worcester, Mass at the age of 15. Since the normal lifespan for such a cat is one to three days, it is safe to say that he (they?) more than beat the odds. There's another video in the Boston Globe article.

Shark Cats, portraits of terror

"It was a normal day when I grabbed my sketchpad and began to doodle. What came out was little scribbles of a horrible little creature: the Shark Cat. The initial design was based on the thresher shark. I found that the short face and extremely large eyes worked well with the cat aesthetic. However, as I kept sketching, I noticed that almost any shark species could be adapted." Shark Cats, portraits of terror, by concept artist/illustrator Brynn Metheney, who has more work on her Instagram account. (Not to be confused with the cat in a shark costume on a Roomba, previously).

The secret lives of cats

Playful pets, fearsome fighters or deadly hunters? Millions of us have cats in our homes, yet we know very little about them. In this series, Liz Bonnin joins forces with some of the world's top cat experts to conduct a groundbreaking scientific study. With GPS trackers and cat cameras, we follow 100 cats in three very different environments to find out what they get up to when they leave the cat flap.
Last October, BBC's flagship science programme Horizon devoted a series of 3 episodes to tracking and analysing the secret lives of cats. These episodes are now available on Youtube. [more inside]

And then it happens again, when you’re sixty or seventy.

"A child’s body is very easy to live in. An adult body isn’t. The change is hard. And it’s such a tremendous change that it’s no wonder a lot of adolescents don’t know who they are. They look in the mirror — that is me? Who’s me?

And then it happens again, when you’re sixty or seventy."
