Don’t freak out if you see a friend upload a photo of him-(or her-!) self with a massive beard, which, at a second glance, looks oddly similar to a cat. This is all a part of a new photo trend – a meme that’s called ‘cat beards’ or ‘cat-bearding’. The trick is to have your feline friend in front and covering half of your face – and when the cat looks up, it’s chin and neck looks like a massive beard on your face.

They say the Internet survives because of cats and p*rn, so if the two were brought together into one picture, that would mean an explosion right there. Oh wait, they already have been! Hot on the left and adorable on the right – that’s the secret of “Des Hommes Et Des Chatons” tumblr page. The combination of the two makes a surprisingly funny overall result, where kittens sometimes seem to be mocking the hot studs in the diptychs. All in all, this is probably just the best reflection of what every girl wants – a little bit of sugar and a little spice in one place.
Scottish photographer George Logan and retoucher Tony Swinney let’s you imagine what it would be like if your cat wasn’t just a purring ball of fur.

Economist by profession and photographer by calling, Andy Prokh takes charming black-and-white photos of his 4-year-old daughter and their cat.

Architecture firm Because We Can, led by interior designer Jillian Northrup and her husband architect Jeffrey McGrew, had to turn an under utilized room in a private residence into a highly functional and inspirational place to work from home. Besides turning the room into a splendid mad science lair, they also made what Northrup calls “the fist step to greater cat mobility throughout the room”. The Cat Tube stretches around the room and gives the cat access to the top of the armoire. There’s even a couple of small windows that let you see where your cat is going. Just take my money already!
Controversy sells big time – and if you publish a book that in the reviews is called “so weird that it’s sort of irresistible” – then you’re doomed to go down the road of success. That’s what happened to a New Zealand author Burton Silver and illustrator Heather Busch, after the release of their comedy book “Why Paint Cats: The Ethics of Feline Aesthetics”, a collection of bizarrely colored portraits of cats.
These wonderful photos were taken in 1961 by Ralph Crane documenting “Black Cat Auditions in Hollywood.” A shot of Vincent Price suggests that this audition must have been for Tales of Terror (1962) by Roger Corman.
It’s hard to believe, but the pictures you’re about to see are not photographs – they were all drawn using a single pencil! Paul Lung, a Hong Kong based graphic designer doesn’t even use an eraser – all he needs is a 0.5 mm technical pencil, A2 paper and some time..Well, about 60 hours. The artist even has to document his work process in order to prove that his works are actually drawn.
