Cats

The term “cat burglar” has to come from somewhere, right? Merriam-Webster defines it as “a burglar who is adept at entering and leaving the burglarized place without attracting notice.” Sounds like a real sneaky kitty. 

But that doesn’t necessarily correspond to this actual cat burglar, who was spotted just chilling in the lobby of a bank last night, presumably, in the middle of a burglary.

Now, I know this doesn’t look like your traditional cat burglar, missing are the black and white stripped shirt, black mask, and, of course, giant sack with a dollar sign on it. However, in its stead is — and follow me here — a cat.

That’s right this is a literal cat in a bank. We don’t know how the cat got in there, but we can definitely assume that he or she is there to burgle that bank.

cat rescued after nine days on a power pole inspirational

Cats might have nine lives, but after nine days atop a 45-foot-high power pole, this cat might be fresh out.

Luckily for him, utility workers were able to bring the little guy down. The Fresno Bee reports that a cat named “Fat Boy” climbed to the top of a massive power pole and hung in there for nine days, sitting through rain and wind without water, until Pacific Gas and Electric Co. workers in Fresno, California were able to get him down.

Wait, the cat’s name is “Fat Boy,” and no one would help? Not even the fire department?

“We called everyone – anyone that could help, but they didn’t come,” said Andrew Perez, Fat Boy's owner. “He’s a nice cat. He probably went up there because he got scared by a dog. I was scared.”

Thankfully, PG&C was there to help “Fat Boy.” Let's get a better look at him to celebrate.

Wow. Fat Boy. 

The Fresno Bee says that power to 250 homes had to be shut off or a few hours so workers could get Fat Boy.

“It’s not a simple thing to climb a power pole and get a cat down,” he said. “The first thing we have to do is de-energize the line – it’s a 12,000-volt line. Sometimes we wait out cats on poles… 99 percent of the time, cats come down on their own. In this case, it’s been up there that long, we just made the decision to go ahead and go up there.”

The world is yours, Fat Boy. YOLO, Fat Boy. YOLO.

A sleeping cat is a perhaps the most perfect thing in the world. But how do you improve on it? How do you make a sleeping cat even cuter?

You don’t change the cat, you change the bed.

Ariel Dumas, a writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, took her cat bed to the next level with four tools: a sewing kit, a marker, and two pingpong balls. The result: A monstrous cat bed that’s the perfect domicile for her feline friends. 

Now when it’s time for bed, her cats jump into the mouth of a monster, much like Jonah in the belly of a whale. Will the story of this cat and her monster cat bed be added to the Bible in a thousand years? Let’s just go with a cautiously optimistic probably. While we wait for that, enjoy the greatest tweets ever tweeted.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been taking asylum in the London’s Ecuadorian Embassy since 2012 due to rape allegation. No doubt, that gets lonely. How does he manage? Well, the cat’s out of the bag.

Known only as “Embassy Cat,” Assange’s feline companion appeared in a window this morning and watched reporters flock to the embassy door as Assange would be questioned by Swedish prosecutors for the aforementioned 2012 rape allegation. As Assange was interviewed for the rape allegation, the world fell in love with Embassy Cat, who enjoys a fish, balls of yarn, and Hillary Clinton’s email scandals. @EmbassyCat has 22,000 followers on Twitter. If you’re wondering if @EmbassyCat is good at Twitter, it mostly Tweets about emails and Hillary Clinton.

After some time of watching the media from, Embassy Cat made a costume change and returned with a red and white stripped tie around its neck. It’s cute, but maybe not cute enough to forget that Assange was currently being interviewed about a rape allegation, which he has been evading since 2012.

Anyway, here's the cat!

If you aren't familiar with these cats, here's what you need to know: Larry is the Mouser in Chief at the Prime Minister's residence in the U.K. and Palmerston is the Foreign Office cat that lives next door. The two don't seem to like each other very much and British news outlets can't help but cover all of their cat-on-cat drama.

Larry and Palmerston had their worst fight yet the other night and the MiC had to make a visit to the vet. Hopefully they'll be able to settle their political differences soon, before they both get hurt.
