The Top 10 Cat New Year's Resolutions

1. Get In Shape

Do you sit and wait at your food bowl an hour before dinnertime? Does five minutes of playing with the cat dancer leave you out of breath? Maybe it's time to reevaluate your eating habits and physical fitness routine. Why not add an extra few laps around the house when you get a case of the kitty zoomies, or maybe leave a Temptations treat or two behind next time you snack. On the other hand, when it comes to kitties, big is beautiful and a little extra cushion just means more square inches available for petting and cuddles.

2. Get A Job

With the help of the internet, cats these days have more opportunities than ever before to bring home some serious bacon. Whether it's publishing your own blog, web comic, or books, there's really no excuse for modern felines to sit idle while someone else is footing the bill. At the very least, do something cute, and make sure your food person gets it on tape so they can post it to YouTube for maximum profits.

3. Get Organized

Sure, it's really fun to drag your toys all over the house, and delight your human with a furry mouse in their shoe; But listen, you're not getting any younger, and sometimes it's hard to remember exactly where you tossed your favorite crinkle ball. What's a feline with a short memory span to do? I don't know, what were we talking about? Kittens!!

4. Get Out Of Debt

Cats generally don't have money, so this shouldn't be a problem.

5. Spend More Time With Loved Ones

No, this one's not for you, dear kitties. Everyone knows that cats only give their love and attention when they feel like it. This is about getting your owners to spend more time catering to your every need. Unfortunately, they too often are busy on their computers, watching TV, fulfilling basic hygienic needs, sleeping, etc. to drop everything and be with you the moment you decide it's time to cuddle. This is the year to fight back with epic bouts of cuteness and naughtiness to get the attention you so fully deserve!

6. Learn New Things

Cats are naturally smart (no matter what anyone says), however, if the mood strikes you, why not take time in 2011 to pick up a good pick or enroll in a class at the local community college? If all else fails, a smart pair of spectacles is a good way to show the world how studious and thoughtful you really are.

7. Travel The World

There's a lot more out there to see in the world beyond your water bowl. Why not book a spontaneous trip to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower, take a safari to see the big cats in Africa, or fly to Japan to visit the cat cafes of Tokyo?

8. Get A Hobby

True, the old thinking was that cats didn't need hobbies because they were so busy eating and sleeping. Not anymore! Today's cat is an avid multitasker, able to do it all and still have time to squeeze in 13-18 hours of sleep a day.

9. Take Time To Smell The Roses

Just don't eat them.

10. Take More Naps

This one is self-explanatory. Sun puddles don't soak up themselves!

The Best Maru Moments of 2010

While it's true that 2009 was really the "Year of Maru," the beloved Japanese kitty was still busy this year bringing his cuteness and box loving ways to the masses. In honor of his hard work, I've put together a monthly list of highlights to help us all relive Maru's magical year.


Happy New Year!








Winner of Urlesque's CATFIGHT! Maru beat out the likes of Ceiling Cat, Sockington, Longcat, Limecat, and Happycat to be crowned the web's most favorite feline.

Longcat Scarf

While searching for 51 Cats Wearing Cozy Winter Scarves yesterday, I came across a fantastic piece of LOLcat fashion. Flickr user ShaanaBanaana has transformed the infamous Longcat into a brilliantly cute winter accessory! The chunky blue and white hand knit scarf features the lanky white kitty in all his lengthy glory. I can has?
