While Sweet Little Black Kitty is the worlds first feline poet cats have a long history in literature. Periodically we’ll feature some favorites. Let us know who your favorite puss in books are. Thanks Flavorwire.
The Master and Margarita, Mikhail Bulgakov
The greatest cat in all of literature might just be Behemoth, the gun-crazy, vodka-swilling, wisecracking feline — a kind of cracked Puss-in-Boots — that pals around with Satan in the 1930s Moscow of Bulgakov’s classic. He’s also, as his name suggests, rather enormous. And he won’t let you forget it.
Don’t forget your cat when you’re renovating. ViralNova gives us this great story about a German company Goldtatze.de that makes fantastical “cat heavens” for cats here on earth. Everyone has a granite counter top but a cat heaven that’s too cool for kitty school!
Obviously being a cat would be the best thing ever: your life would revolve around napping, rubbing up against people because you think they’re giant cats, and jumping up on shelves and knocking things over. Some beautiful genius has taken that last part of the equation and turned it into a video game that you can play online.
The first-person cat simulator is called Catlateral Damage (duh) and seriously, the player’s only objective is to knock over as many items as possible in two minutes. For now, the game — developed by QA tester Chris Chung — is limited to the owner’s bedroom. It’s currently in its alpha stage, and the full version will include more levels and more objects to send tumbling to the floor. The player’s sole weapon, however, will still be a paw.
Chung hasn’t yet announced the official release date, but you can play the alpha version in your browser, bringing you one step closer to finally figuring out how it feels to be a cat. And we can say this: the knocking stuff over part definitely feels good.
Sushi Cats (Neko-Sushi) by the Japan-based company Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts are a series of photographs of cute dressed up felines resting on top of sushi rice. According to the History of Sushi Cats video (seen below), the cats are a magical and historical creature that have been influencing humans since the beginning of time. Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts has released a mobile game app for iPhone and Android phones featuring the Sushi Cats. They also have an online store that offers photo prints, postcards and more (only available in Japan).
The cats embody performance art, theater, philosophy and art. There may be a Sweet Little Black Kitty-Sushi Cat meeting of the minds very soon. Check them out below.

Giving new meaning to the word “cat-apult,” a sprightly feline from Japan has taken the Internet by storm with his incredible ability to reach jaw-dropping heights in just one jump.
Nya-Suke, also known as the “Jumping Cat,” has been making waves on YouTube with his super-jumps for at least the past year; but his awesome antics are going viral once again this week after Kotaku’s Brian Ashcraft reminded the world of the leaping feline’s amazing skill.
“Have you seen this little guy jump? Holy smoke, he’s incredible,” Ashcraft wrote.
Quoting the cat’s owner, YouTube user Jamuomii, Ashcraft wrote that though “the average cat can jump about five times their height, which is typically about 150cm or 4.9 feet,” Nya-Suke can jump as high as 196 centimeters, or 6.4 feet.
Forget about putting those kitty treats on the top shelf.
Mistaking this little black kitten for SLBK, this literary fan can’t help herself giving a hug after reading The Collected Poems.
