This Cat Is Terrified Of Its Own Reflection!


We love a Crazy Cat Lady here at the Geyser of Awesome. 12CatsLady, a self-described “full-time cat mom,” lives in Japan with 12 (count them!) fluffy and playful Chinchilla Persian cats.

So how does a person come to own a dozen kitties?

“It started when we met our first cat, Yuki, on December 30, 2010. We took her home after rescuing her in the middle of the road where we found her dirty and freezing. After a while we decided to adopt one more and looked for the same breed on an adoption site — but we actually saw two chinchilla Persians and couldn’t decide between them, so we adopted them both.”

So that’s three cats. Then those cats had kittens and that’s how 3 became 12. But don’t worry, the entire feline dozen has since been spayed and neutered. Their names are Yuki, Momo, Shou, Yuri, Bruce, Blackie, Kaya, Karu, Ai, James, Tiger, and Goodie. They’re all clearly well loved and doted on and even have their own enclosed catio:

Q. Why can’t we stop watching cat videos? 

A. Because we’ve been brainwashed by our secret feline overlords (duh).

In all seriousness, though, we’ve decided to pursue the answers to some of life’s important questions, like: Why are cat videos so popular? Why are we willing to waste** hours of our lives watching them? And why is Grumpy Cat so grumpy?

Thankfully, some of our favorite writers (Carl Wilson, Elena Passarello, Alexis Madigral, Jillian Steinhauer, Stephen Burt, Matthea Harvey, Kevin Nguyen, and more) have agreed to answer these questions and more in a book called Cat is Art Spelled Wrong, which we’re funding right now through our Catstarter.

A $20 pre-order gets you a copy of the book (with your name inside, disguised in a cat). There are also posters, a kitty totebag, and the opportunity to host the entire Internet Cat Video Festival in your backyard.

Plus, y'know, you’ll be helping make sure the writers are paid well for their work. Kick in for your very own copy today and spread the word by reblogging and sharing the news with your friends!

Cats + Ping-pong = Awesome entertainment

Thanks to this hilarious video compilation we’ve learned that cats are natural-born table tennis pros, or rather they would be if it weren’t for that pesky net that keeps getting in the way. They’re definitely got expert level enthusiasm:
