Oh, Japan. You are one wild and weird country I would like to visit. Even more so considering a Japanese company has devised this wacky Sushi Cats (a.k.a. Neko-Sushi) ad campaign in order to get some online buzz.
Well, it worked or else I would have never known about peanut company Tange & Nakimushi. Nor would I have wondered what cats would look like if they were placed one top of a rice and wrapped in seaweed. The peanut company even too it one step further by producing a video on the back story of Sushi Cats.
Just in case your conscience is feeling sorry for the cats, no cats were harmed during the shoot and was produced under the supervision of professional animal handlers.

These kittens are in a picnic basket. Now they’re just climbing all over things. One’s in a watering can! AHHH! THE CUTENESS! I am in a very warm happy place.
Because I’m the most amazing best friend anyone could every have, I stole my best friend’s new phone the moment she got it and promptly locked myself in my room only to record the world’s most heinous cat ringtone. To be fair, I did start with a really cute “meow” but it apparently wasn’t loud enough so I ended up with a recording that sounded like a mix between a whale and a frightened horse. When her phone rang, it pretty much scared everyone around her.
That fleeting memory obviously got me thinking how this real life cat would react if it heard my monstrosity of an imitation. This kitty sounds so genuinely concerned for the phone’s “meowing” ringtone. If it were my friend’s phone, there’s no doubt that it’d be thinking, “we must kill it with fire.”
We couldn’t help but melt a little when we saw this one sleepy dog being carried around in a backpack because he was too tired to walk. D’awww…
But I think there’s no better way to get ready for a nap than donning our favourite pairs of pajamas. As a result, I just had to find every photo of animals in pajamas as I could because, well, why would you?
So here are

Cats are everywhere on the internet. Photos and gifs of cats are all over Tumblr, and Youtube is home to an infinite supply of cat videos. Truthfully, I still don’t understand what it is about cats that has everyone so obsessed.
Cats have truly taken over social media. They even have their own memes.
To truly understand the strong presence of cats on the internet and specifically social media outlets, According to Devin created a very accurate representation of this relationship.
You can find cats doing and wearing anything on the internet and that is not an exgeration. Really. Do a Google search. Cats dressed up in costumes. Cats doing funny things. Cats with captions. Cats with odd human qualities.Cats meowing. Cats rapping. Cats. Cats. Cats.
Thank you, According to Devin. You have figured it out.
What do you think about this cat age of the internet?
Since a huge portion of the Internet is devoted to cats like Olive, Mittens, Puffy, Niko, and General Bonkers, they participated in this “Gangnam Style” survey to see if Psy’s message relates to fluffy (or sometimes not fluffy) kittens. Thanks Noisey.
If there’s one thing cuter than kittens doing regular kitten things, it’s a couple of them wearing superhero capes and flying to hip hop dubstep music. Although I can’t come up with anything gruesome about this sentence, the singer Scott Winn and his team are actually getting death threats from unhappy animal fanatics who think the kittens are being harmed.
To me, it looks like the black cat Gigi and tabby Chewy are having loads of fun flying around in this video for “Kitten Air,” sung by Winn and Justin Williams. Plus, Winn assures us on YouTube that no animals were harmed in the making of this video.

Maru is probably the most famous cat on the Internet. We like to think it’s because he just doesn’t care what anyone thinks — Maru just does Maru. In this epic battle, the furry feline swipes the ground in an epic two and a half minute battle.
Every Tuesday, Vanessa Marciano highlights the very best of Tumblr. This week, we’re not sure what we’re ogling over more, the delicious chocolate-dipped marshmallow treats or the Abercrombie models (yelp).
Shots, Shots, Shots! The Wanted are only getting started
Today marks one year since British bad boys The Wanted released their hit single “Glad You Came,” making girls scream worldwide and wonder if there’s some kind of sexual innuendo behind the lyrics. [homosykesual]
Summer is all about embracing colour, so throw on some rings and you’ll have your perfect accessary for the sun. Just don’t forget your SPF! [coastal-skies]
If only making fake concert tickets were as easy to get away with as using a fake ID (not that I’d know). What’s better than snagging VIP tickets to the show of the summer? [paperocean]
Mason isn’t impressed, is he?
Okay, I kind of lied in the headline because I’m not sure if this is actually their first bath, but it’s just TOO. MUCH. CUTENESS. These three-week-old kittens were at an animal shelter with no mother. Some volunteers took the kittens home, made sure they got enough nutrition and gave them proper baths because apparently they stunk. As far as I know, kittens don’t usually take baths but since they were in an animal shelter and had no mother to clean them, they really needed some extra care.
This white cat has a mean sugar addiction. He sits on the couch with a whole plate of healthy fruits at his disposal but instead he can’t stop eating the lollipop in his paws.
We laugh now but for all we know we could have another case of Meow on our hands, the 39-pound obese cat who unfortunately passed away after meeting Anderson Cooper… though the two events aren’t necessarily linked.
You’ve lined up your shot, the lighting is perfect and you’re ready to snap photo perfection and then — wait for it — a chilled out llama sticks his head in the picture all like “what do I care?” You’re devastated at first because he completely messed up your shot, until you realize it’s probably the BEST picture of life.

This is probably the strangest thing we found today. It might be the easy connection between cats and dead mice (deadmi5e?) that makes this funny, or that they seem to be convulsing in perfect time, but it made us laugh regardless. These poor kitties all have hairballs… and the best way to dispose of them? Techno puke dancing! At least it looks like dancing until you see what comes out of their mouths.
One Direction’s Harry Styles stripped down to his briefs for a promo and we’re pleased to report he wears the exact same brand as someone in this very office. We also watch a video of a cute kitten cuddling a mouse and finally share a clip of our interview with The Wanted, in which they talk about Justin Bieber.
I always marvelled at my cat’s acrobatic abilities. Earl Gray of Gloucester (yes, that’s one of my cats’ names) is skilled at bouncing backwards on her hind legs, jumping higher than a doorknob and running faster than me — though on that note, she’s not skilled at braking on slippery hardwood floors. She’s also a master at hiding, usually in dark corners and under blankets, so she can
attack surprise me when I least suspect it. Sometimes this makes me wonder whether she’s adorable or evil, like this website leads me to believe….
Either way, she’d be the perfect addition to this hypothetical French movie called “Les Chats Ninjas.”

Here’s a painfully cute video of four kittens waking up to get you through the rest of your work day. You’re welcome.
I also just have to say, it makes me want to do this.
