Artists Hilarious Out-Of-The-Box Take On “Catifying” Movie Posters

Artist Jaemy Choong has purrfected the “catification” of popular movie posters. Tapping into his graphic design background, he has stepped away from the computer and brought hilariously aligned visions of the magic behind the scenes.

He comically describes himself as an “Instagrammawhammer” who “posts poster postcard postings on Instagram“. His social media pages are littered with his ameowzing visual representations.

Planning a Birthday Party For Your Cat

The day your cat came into your life is one of the best of the year, so why not celebrate your cat with a birthday or “gotcha day” party? Cat parties are a great way to get your friends together and treat your cat to fun games, toys, and snacks. Check out these five tips to create the best birthday party “pawssible.”

Enrichment Games for Your Cats

Humans love party games, and your cats do, too! Create a game for your cat to play during the birthday celebration. These games can range from simple toys that dangle from the table to the deluxe cat ball pit we made a few months back.

Or just a room full of boxes!

Avoid Decorations That Will Scare Or Harm Your Cats

You want your cat to feel comfortable while you’re celebrating his or her birthday, but strange decorations could send them into hiding. Make sure the party favors and decor you choose doesn’t scare off your kitty right away.

Many cats are afraid of balloons and noisemakers. They also might eat ribbon used to wrap gifts. Keep an eye on how your cat behaves to make sure he or she is safe and comfortable throughout the party.

Invite Your Cat’s Favorite People

You might be tempted to invite everyone you know to celebrate your cat’s birthday, but this could cause your kitty to run and hide. Loud people and large crowds scare off even the bravest cats, so try to limit the guest list to a few of your cat’s top humans. If your cat has a negative reaction to someone or can smell other cats on the person, that guest might be better off missing this party and catching the next one.

Create Human and Kitty Treats

Cats can’t digest human food, and chocolate is toxic to them, so you don’t want to give them a cake meant for humans. Unfortunately, your human guests might not be as excited about eating tuna and chicken bits as your cats are. When planning the menu, look for human-friendly food, but also make celebratory treats to let your cats know that it’s a big day.

Check out the tuna cakes we made for Marmalade’s first birthday. The cats were crazy about them! We had fun watching them eat while we enjoyed our own human food for the event.

Use the Party to Support a Good Cause!

Your cats might not care for presents, other than playing with paper and jumping in boxes, so use their birthdays to raise money for a great feline-friendly cause. You can support a national nonprofit like Big Cat Rescue, look up cat sanctuaries, or support local rescue groups and shelters in your area.

When Marmalade celebrated his second birthday, we went big with an EPIC birthday celebration for Cats vs Cancer. Marm himself is a cancer survivor, so we used his birthday to raise awareness of the disease that affects cats, too.

Even if your friends only give a few dollars, you can help out less fortunate cats in need.

By following these tips, you’ll throw the best cat birthday party on the block! All the cool cats will wish they have the treats, games, and guest list that you created.

French Artists Hypnotizes The Senses With Catified Sculptures

Alexandre Dubosc is a fantastically talented artist that uses a variety of mediums to create animated short films. His portrayal of clay sculptures transformed into animation is inspiring, and in this case, a bit mouthwatering !

He is based in Paris and creates these magnificent pieces for several different companies. Alexandre has even claimed a European Master in Art award.

Since 2002 he has been exploring the human fascination with “food” through both still and animated art.

In this aMEOWzing creation dedicated to the love of cats, he throws back to the classic zoetrope method of craftsmanship. For those unfamiliar with this art form, it is a version of pre-cinematographic animation that produces the illusion of motion by displaying a sequence of drawings or photographs showing progressive phases of that motion.

 

His breathtaking, detailed “cakes” pleasurably hypnotize your senses!

Where can we order one?!

5 Easy Steps To Creating Your Own Cat Tree

Do you wish that you had someplace for your furry friend to climb, but you can’t afford to spend a few hundred dollars on a cat tree? Don’t worry; you can create your own in a few easy steps! The best part is that you can tailor the cat tree to your feline friend’s personal preferences, creating something he or she will love for years! Let’s get started…

Gather the Materials

Some people assemble parts for their cat trees based on what they have around their homes, while others seek out specific materials. Some materials you may need include study wood boards, piping or plastic tubing, wooden rods for support, Sisal rope, nails, and screws. Depending on the design of your tree, you will likely need to review additional materials.

Whatever materials you choose, make sure your cat tree is sturdy. Cats might be small, but they jump with force and could knock over the tower if it’s too lightweight.

Consider the Height of Your Cat Tree

As you design the blueprints for your cat tree, consider how high you want it to be. Some cat trees almost reach the ceiling, allowing kitties to get a bird’s-eye view of the home. However, other cat trees are more like shrubs and spread wide across an area, with different activities on each level.

Your blueprint will help you create a realistic plan with the materials you have and the space within your home or apartment.

Cover Any Sharp Edges or Rough Surfaces

Cat trees are typically covered in fabric that cats can scratch, rub on, and climb on. Try to look for thick covers that are also comfortable. You can also cover your cat tree in rope and scratching material to create a responsible outlet for sharpening claws.

Make sure to cover any sharp corners, nails, screws, and other potentially dangerous spots on the cat tree. This could prevent blisters or a nasty cut.

Add Cushions for Kitty to Relax On

Not only is your cat tree a place for exploring, climbing, and scratching, it’s also a high place for your cat to rest. Pick up a couple of cat beds or comfortable cushions and attach them to the platforms. You can place one near the top of the tree and one on a lower level.

Some cats want to be high up, while others don’t mind napping closer to the ground.

Place a Few Strategic Cat Toys

The final touches are the cat toys the kitties can play with while they climb the cat tree. You might dangle a plush mouse from one of the levels so they can bat at it, or you can attach a catnip fish to another platform that they can rub against or roll over.

This added enrichment will keep your cats interested in the tree and continually exploring to discover what else might be hidden in the branches!

There are plenty of cat tree plans and tutorials online you can check out. See which ones work best for your feline friends. In the meantime, check out Cole and Marmalade as they explore their cat tree and even have cat battles on it!

We’re gonna need a bigger cat tree!
