When most people think of cats, they think of cuddly animals that are soft and fuzzy. There are, however, several breeds of hairless cats. As this article indicates, there are at least six such breeds:
Be sure to check out the truly bizarre looking Elf Cat! The best known breed of hairless cat is probably the Sphynx.

Cats posting on Instagram? Apparently this is actually a thing, or soon will be. A company called Whiskas Australia has created something called Catstacam, a camera that cats wear and run around with -and photos are automatically posted to Instagram. This is apparently still in the beta stage, but it seems doable given the current state of camera technology. See video and pictures at this link:
This video highlights some funny and heartwarming footage of cats and babies playing together. Recommended if you need something to make you smile or de-stress!
Taylor Swift recently posted an Instagram Photo of a scratch that one of her cats allegedly (innocent until proven guilty, right?) inflicted on her. This was shortly after the pop star had her legs insured for $40 million. So is she going to take the offender to court?
The following video shows Taylor Swift talking about her cats on the Kelly Michael Show, when she was apparently on better terms with them. Some pictures of these very cute cats are also shown.
We love cats as much as anybody at the Cat Video website, but we also have to recognize that some people get carried away when it comes to cats (the same is at least as true for dog owners -probably more so!). A case in point is the recent invention of wine for cats. This is now being sold in Japan.
This is a product that’s not really for cats as much as for cat owners who want to treat their feline companions like humans. This cat wine is supposedly for people who want to celebrate special occasions with their cats. One reason people love their pets so much is that these critters never judge them when they are behaving in a ridiculous manner! Hopefully this product is at least safe for cats.
Aoshima, which is also known as “Cat Island” is a Japanese island that is literally swarming with feral cats. Japan actually has several cat islands, but Aoshima has one of the largest feline populations. If you look at the photos taken on this cat island, you’ll notice that a disproportionate number of the cats are of the orange tabby variety. This island is a fishing village, but cats now outnumber people. The island now attracts many tourists because of its reputation.
Even the most ardent cat lovers can see problems with this type of setup, as so many cats in one place are prone to various diseases and pose a threat to native species of birds and small mammals. It seems that some type of intervention would be needed to control the populations of such cat islands, such as a neutering program.
What do cats do at night when everyone is sleeping? This video gives us some clues. Cats are, after all, nocturnal animals so they are often most interesting in the middle of the night!
