Cats Aren't Republicans
Living with a cat for the first time, you quickly pick up on its behavioral
quirks, many of which are common among other cats. What you soon find
out is that cats aren't Republican. Here are 12 reasons why not:
1. Cats are curious about what you do in your bedroom, but they don't
try to legislate away your freedom to do it.
2. Cats may take away your cushion, but they'll give it back to you with
a gentle push.
3. Cats give you attention and sympathy when you're sick.
4. Females are treated with importance in the cat world.
5. Cats make use of solar power, often all day long.
6. Cats lick their own problems and take care of other cats too.
7. Cats don't blame black and brown cats for their troubles.
8. Cats know how to ration their resources.
9. Fat cats are not at the top of the cat hierarchy, are not cat role
models, and have more trouble surviving and thriving, not less.
10. While Republicans blindly follow authority, it is said that getting
Democrats to act in unison is like herding cats.
11. Cats don't foul their own nest.
12. Cats are popular and well-liked on the Internet and elsewhere.

designer creates adorable cat handbags
When we heard that Felissimo, Japan’s premier provider of cat-themed
lifestyle products, had a new line of kitty bags coming out, we figured
they’d be pretty cute. Maybe they’d have some nice illustrations
on the side, or a pair of playful cat ears peeking out of the top of
But what we didn’t expect was for them to look exactly like actual
cats!Yep, believe it or not these are actually functional bags. Specifically,
they’re kinchaku, the traditional drawstring pouches carried by
women wearing kimono. Felissimo’s feline focus, however, means
they’ll pair just as well with modern, Western-style clothing.The
interior dimensions are pretty compact, with the company saying you’ll
be able to stuff a couple of hand towels or pairs of socks inside. While
the bags can be pressed flat when empty, giving the cord a tug while
there’s something inside produces a cuddly physique for the kitty.
Four designs are available: Calico/tortoiseshell, orange and silver tabby,
and hachiware, with a peaked marking on its forehead.
They’re actually cute enough that they can easily double as stuffed
animals.And don’t worry – of course Felissimo remembered
to give them all adorable tails too.The Nekomanmaru Kinchaku, as they’re
officially called, are priced at 2,478 yen (US$23) each, and can be ordered
here through Felissimo’s online store. As with many of the company’s
products, the cat kinchaku are being offered in a subscription-like format,
with customers receiving a different, non-specified design each month,
but you can rest easy knowing that any of them will pair well with Japan’s
enticing cat sandals this summer.
