"Would you open the thing already.."
(submitted by hanude)
It would be fun if Ty and Zane return home and saw this. Especially if only one or two cats were theirs but not the others :P.
Mostly about the Cut & Run series and related stuff. Then other stuff I liked and other cute things
St. James, Minnesota resident Greg Krueger love his four cats so much that he’s spent the last 20 years and $10,000 transforming his home into a phenomenal feline fun house - and he’s still working on it.
“I just love trails and paths, and cats, of course,” said 50-year-old Krueger. “And so I’ve just linked those passions together.”
It all began when Krueger noticed how much his cats enjoyed being up high. First he created a place for them to sit atop a china cabinet. Then came a staircase to help the cats get up on the cabinet more easily. Today Krueger’s house features elaborate tunnels, staircases, platforms, 38 hand-carved cat-sized opening in his walls, 100 yards of overhead catwalks and bridges, and numerous comfy cat-sized hidey-holes. The catwalks all feature ornate railings to prevent accidental falls. If they don’t want to, Krueger’s kitties never have to walk on the floor. There’s also an enclosed outdoor kennel if the cats ever feel like getting some fresh air.
Krueger was recently diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, which has helped him understand his extraordinary dedication to his feline family.
“Obviously, my house would not be like this if I didn’t have Asperger’s,” he said. “If it takes a long time, I don’t care because if I like what I’m doing, I almost don’t want to finish what I’m doing.”

What happened when Ty was in charge of their residential floor…
It’s never too early to start planning what to offer your neighborhood trick-or-treaters. These remarkably/horrifyingly lifelike gummy grubs and caterpillars would make awesome Halloween treats. Although they may look like they just wriggled out of your nightmares, they’re actually handmade, fruit-filled sweets. They’re made in Japan at Akai Tento no Koohii Ten (The Red Tent Coffee Shop), a small coffee stand located on the east coast of Aomori Prefecture.
We can’t stop staring at these photos, because we’re convinced one of the grubs is about to twitch. Akai Tento is a small business, but these amazingly unsettling creepy-crawly gummy candies have earned the shop nationwide (and now international) attention.
Each of Akai Tento’s gruesome gummies is available to buy individually or in packs (or perhaps that should be clutches?) via Yahoo! Japan Shopping, and cost between 300 and 350 yen (US$2.80-3.20) each.
I wonder if Ty will eat these gummy.
How Ty and Zane fit in a small bed :D.
Zane: You want cats for the bookstore?
Ty: Zane …
Zane: Hairy Pawter and the Sorting Cat.
Ty: Zane, no.
Zane: ZANE, YES
It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing
Best thing I have ever seen I love cats so much omg
Your cute cat of the day
Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course).
Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.
This is quite amazing on so many levels.
