The Cat Video Clapperboard makes your cat feel like a star! You need to take the YouTube and Facebook videos of your cat to the next level. To get that standard of quality will require multiple takes, which means you’ll want this clapperboard. This tiny 4” x 3-1/2” wood clapperboard is the perfect thing to mark the takes of your kitty doing adorable things.
We can’t celebrate the return of Movember without mentioning Hamilton the Hipster Cat and his awesome white mustache (previously featured here). But instead of sharing a photo of Hamilton himself, we wanted to share this extraordinary image of Jeff dressed up as Hamilton during the week of staff costumes leading up to Halloween at the Archie McPhee store. The resemblance is truly uncanny.
While we love regular visits to the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship, something we seldom get to do is revisit interspecies friends we’ve already met to see how they’re getting along. That’s what makes this video an extra-special treat.
Last month we shared a video of a sweet cat named Clara in in County Offaly, Ireland who had not only just given birth to a litter of kittens, but had adopted three orphaned ducklings to boot. In this new video we check back in on Clara and her mixed brood.
Everyone is still awesomely cute, cuddly, and thriving. However the ducklings are growing faster than the kittens and Clara is not pleased that they’re already entertaining ideas of leaving the safety of her nest. She won’t have it and, as you’ll see, makes sure to retrieve the bold little duckling who’s ready to go off on untold adventures. Clara wants to keep them all close by. Eventually the ducklings relent and everyone ends up in a sleepy heap. If you’re not smiling by the end of the video, it might be time to check your pulse.
Kawaii! Japanese marshmallow specialty shop Yawahada has created something awesome for those of us who have been feeling a bit down that we haven’t quite figured out how to turn our own morning coffees into works of caffeinated art. Yawahada makes adorable kitty cat and kitty cat paw marshmallows that float in your hot beverage of choice, giving you the effect of 3D coffee art without all the effort and as a bonus marshmallow treat.
"Dubbed "Cat Cafe", each one is made by hand one at a time—a time-consuming process. The shop hit on the idea for this particular marshmallow after customers complained that another one of its cat-shaped marshmallows started sinking, head-first. How sad! Thus, the marshmallow wizards at Yawahada created a cat that poked its head out of your steamy drink.
Besides the marshmallow felines, there are also cat paws that come in different flavors, like “milk tea”, “cocoa”, and “green tea latte”, and that were originally designed for hot milk.”
It seems almost impossible to have a bad day if that day starts out with a cup of coffee that looks back up you with a sweet marshmallow face.
New York-based art director Kaisa Haupt creates awesome sandwiches that look like all sorts of different creatures, animals, monsters, and other oddities. Kaisa then photographs and shares these delicious creations for an ongoing series entitled Sandwich Monsters.
Here you see “Captain Hamerica” (Marvel Comics), “Punxsutawney Phil’ly Cheeseteak”, the “Lox-ness Monster”, an “Unidenti-fried Flying Obj-egg”, a tantalizingly cute “Purrr-ito”, and the “Salami’ese Twins”.

Kotaku’s Brian Ashcraft recently posted an amazing collection of awesome real life versions of the Catbus from the wonderful anime film My Neighbor Totoro, created by Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki.
If you aren’t familiar with the movie (in which case we highly recommend you seek it out), the Catbus is “a large creature, depicted as a grinning male cat with a hollow body that serves as a bus, complete with windows and seats coated with fur, and a large bushy tail.”
These homemade versions were photographed all over Japan and these are just a few of our favourites. Head over to Kotaku to view them all.
We love the awesome artwork of pop surrealist painter Marion Peck (previously featured here), so we were delighted to learn that she has a new solo exhibition, entitled Animals, opening on Saturday March 30th at Michael Kohn Projects in Los Angeles, CA.
“More subtle than some of her previous work, the stylized woodland creatures in Peck’s recent paintings appear in the grips of enchantment with their twinkling eyes and anthropomorphic expressions. Each with its own distinct personality, the animals invite the viewer to piece together their individual stories.”
The Animals show will run from March 30th to April 27th. We wish we could see it in person.
