Cat-loving men – Please consider taking a moment to take this online survey about human relationships with pets. See below for details. Mikel Delgado is a doctoral student in psychology at UC Berkeley. He and his co-author, Gretchen Reevy, did a study last year about how people perceive cat personality based on coat color, and only 9.5% of the respondents were male! Mikel says, “We’d like to increase that percentage for our new study.”

A friend of mine just alerted me to this website called “Absolute Worst Pictures of Men and Cats.”
Are these the WORST or the BEST?! You decide!
I just finished reading the book Another Insane Devotion by Peter Trachtenberg.
I read the review of this book in the New York Times Sunday Book Review and knew I had to read it. It’s a lovely nonfiction book about the author’s relationships with his cats and his wife. During the course of the book, cats come in and out of his life; love waxes and wanes; and the author questions at times why he’s so devoted to these loves of his lives.
It’s a beautiful, and at times, melancholy, book on the nature of love of both human and beast. Anyone who’s ever experienced a devotion to a cat should read it. Men and Cats gives it two paws up.
When I received an e-mail with the subject “Cat Yoga on VICE” I forwarded it to my husband, saying “I like that I got an email with the subject ‘cat yoga’ in it – I was kind of like, why have I never before now received an email with the subject ‘cat yoga’? Seems so natural.”
Anyway, apparently the folks at Vice are doing a whole series on cats and… I dunno, cats on the Internet or something? Here’s the video. I also realized I know one of the people interviewed in the video, since I went to college with her. Hello Amy, if you happen to read this, and I’m glad to see we both appreciate funny cats.
