Princeton Student Kiki Lin Screws Her Eponymous Cat Into A Jar

cat jar


THE Mary Bale Fan Club welcomes Taiwanese-born Princeton student Kiki Lin who stuffed her cat – also called Kiki Lin – into a jar before closing the lid. This was not a magic trick. This was not an existential experiment, nor one in the eye for Erwin Schrödinger. This was punishment for the cat’s alleged naughtiness.

Lin then took photos of her cat in the jar and posted them on the web.

John Reed’s Automated Cat Petting Machine

THE Automated Cat Petting Machine is a real thing. No. It’s not RoboSpinster. It’s John Reed’s work for his senior thesis film at Tyler in 1987. As he says, “The Cat Petter turned out to be far more interesting than the film”. Our tip would be to rename it the BBC DJ Recruiter and call the cops on the old stroker:

Bakery puts cat on student’s head

cat head

GRADUATION should be one of the proudest days of your life, but one student found it to be one of the most surreal after a baker got all mixed up when making a celebratory cake.

Instead of the usual cap, the young woman found a picture of her with a cat on her head!

When Laura Gambrel graduated from Indiana University last month, her beamingly proud mother – Carol – decided to order a nice well-done cake.

She instructed the baker to include a congratulatory message and a graduation cap. However, when she went to collect the cake, she was greeted by her daughter wearing a crude feline on her bonce.

“My mom ordered a graduation cake with a cap drawn on,’ the graduate posted on Reddit along with a picture of the cake. ‘I guess they misheard.”

“When my mom got to the store and started laughing they tried to wipe off the cat and put on a plastic cap, but she told them to keep it.”

Her mother added: “It was one of those young kids behind the counter and he seemed a little distracted with someone else ordering a cake a foot away from us.”

“I can only image them doing it and thinking I was going to vet school or something.”

Mexico elects cat as mayor


MEXICO is a weird and wonderful country, but surely no-one could’ve ever expected that, within its borders, a cat would be elected to run for mayor.

Morris has been put forward as the citizens’ candidate for elections taking place on July 7th and cat-lovers are probably chortling to themselves as they say “Well! He can’t do any worse than the humans! HAR HAR!” Obviously, you’d need to say that in a Mexican accent for it to work.

If Morris were to win, he would become the mayor of Veracruz state capital Xalapa.

Brazilian cat gets arrested with a saw and phone strapped to it

BRAZIL is, quite frankly, the most brilliantly ludicrous country on Earth. Away from the obviously mental Amazon rainforest, there’s the most corrupt football league on Earth, a fanatical belief in Jesus, appalling crime and poverty and the kind of folklore legends that makes English mythology look like a dank pond.

And to underline this, Brazilian police have arrested a cat.

Should there be a dangerous cat act? Mary Bale was right

NEVER trust a cat. Nora Scott, 80, from Tunstall, Staffordshire, says a neighbour’s cat attacked her. Was Mary Bale right. She was the women who dropped a cat into a state-of-the-art wheelie-bin, turning Lola into Top Cat, every cat’s TV hero. It might have been what Lola wanted. Cats, after all, can control human brains. Mary Bale became the leader of the Mary Bale Fan Club.

Now we read that cats are attacking us:

“I am terrified of this cat. It clawed my face and I had to go to the hospital and get antibiotics. I have spoken to the police, but they say there is nothing they can do. I think there should be a new law, because they have one for dangerous dogs. It just jumped up and clawed all down my face. There was blood everywhere and it left me with a black eye. Now I am too scared to go out, in case it comes after me.”

“Until something is done, then I will have to remain in my house. I used to love pottering about in the garden. I used to grow lovely flowers but I had to cut them all down so I could see whether the cat was hiding there.

Heartless RSPCA officers name impaled cat Spikey

MORE casual animal cruelty now as we spot a cat found by an RSPCA officers in an overgrown garden in Wolverhampton. The officers notice that the cat has become impaled on a shard of fencing.

The rescuers save the cat, who is on the mend.

The cat’s physical wounds are heeling, but the mental scars remain, a fact unaided by the RSPCA’s decision to name the cat…Spikey.

Massive hair ball removed from cat’s stomach – photos

GEMMA the cat has had a 5in-long 215g hair ball removed from her tummy. The hair is believed to be the cat’s own and not the product of bedroom and carpet harvests. Says David Fennell, of the Cromwell Vet Group in Huntingdon, Cambridgegshire (we’re number one hair balls and merkins!):

“It was about 12.5cm (5in) wide, filled the entire stomach cavity and she had not eaten for days. It would certainly have killed her. She was clearly hungry, but as we later found out, therewas absolutely no room in her stomach for anything else.
