It's Caturday!

Welcome back for another edition of Caturday, where we catch up on the week's latest cat news, and get to meet some of your amazing kitties!

This week, Taylor Swift's kitten killed us with cuteness, Flora Davis gave us a cat hair jewelry update, Oksar the Blind Kitten played with toys for the very first time, Simon's Cat starred in Catnap, Interrupted, a cat giving a dog a back massage provided us with a sweet moment of pre-holiday zen, Jane Lynch said goodbye to her beloved cat Greta, a pint sized cat burglar left several UK residents with cold feet, we learned about the history of cat balloons in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and Charlie and Priscilla wished everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Also, don't forget to check out my post about the hottest Black Friday deals from around the web for cat lovers! While some of the sales have already ended, others are still going strong throughout the weekend, and beyond!


This week's featured feline is a gorgeous Oriental Shorthair, whose owner delights in taking stunning photographs of her kitty muse!

Alexandra writes:

“Usyaka is an Oriental Shorthair cat and she is three years old. I met her when she was 5 months old. By that time, I had already been into photography for a while so it was only natural that she became my model when we started living together.

She figured out that the camera is my important toy, so when I play with it she wants to be a part of it. Whenever I try to take pictures of something else, I end up with photos of Usyaka instead because she wants to be in front of the camera. Eventually I created a blog where I publish her photos.

She talks a lot and she has a range of tones and voices. She recently mastered a question intonation. Maybe she learned that she gets a more interesting response when her 'mew' sounds like 'mew???'

Most of the time she plays and researches. Even now while I'm typing this she's pressing the keys together with me. She is interested in everything I do and she tries to do it with me. When she's interested in things, she touches them with her "hands."

When she wants to play but I don't, she follows me around the flat with her toy in her mouth. She's extremely affectionate. She purrs when she's petted or when she's just talked to. She purrs when she simply finds something amusing about her humans.

She is an amazing creature and we treat her like a real person."

Special thanks to Alexandra for sharing the beautiful Usyaka with us this week! I must say I've fallen in love with this chocolate colored kitty's elegant face, and am in awe of her fierce modeling poses! To see even more pictures of this bewitching feline, you can visit her blog at
