Caturday blogging: Keeping up with the Kattarshians


Need more cats in your life? A 24-hour cat camera from The Icelandic Cat Protection Society is here to fill your heart with kitty love on Caturday or any day.

If there’s one thing the internet can’t get enough of, it’s (still) cats. But after April the Giraffe, we’ve also discovered a passionate love for 24-hour live streams of animals doing things like standing, sleeping, looking around, eating, and blinking. Since cats are far more interesting than giraffes not actively giving birth, how about a live cat-cam to watch cats…cat on your Caturday morning?

Let’s up the ante a bit. What if they were kittens?

The Icelandic Cat Protection Society has blessed us with the new best thing on YouTube—a live cat-cam showing off a group of adorable kitties living in a tiny, kitten-sized house while they grow old enough to be adopted out. The house includes soft things to lay on, plenty of kitty toys, and four cameras that allow us to document every cute tussle and big, sleepy stretch. You can view all four cameras at once at the official site.

Though we may grow to love these kitties, they do eventually need to be placed in homes, but never fear. Once they’re adopted out, a new group of kitties will take over the house and share their adorable lives with us. There’s even a Facebook page that contains bios on all the kitties currently in the house: Dimma, Sara Björk, Svarthöfði, and Úlfur Úlfur. Though the last batch of kittens was here with their mother, this group had already been separated from their mother (don’t worry, it’s not necessarily a bad thing). Also, apparently Svarthöfði is the Icelandic name for Darth Vader, which immediately makes him the best cat.

Forget the Kardashians. The Kattarshians are the best family to gossip about and shall reign over my heart forever.
