Cat’s Home Repair Project Goes Horribly Wrong
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
After being asked dozens of times to fix the running toilet, Rex was sure that he knew what to do. But even with the help of his human friend, the project quickly snowballed into a much bigger problem. 
“I had a bad feeling about it from the very beginning,” Marty Maxwell said. “He was all, ‘Trust me, I asked Reddit what to do!’ Well look what you’ve done, Reddit.” 
Maxwell was reluctant to share the details of exactly where things went south with the repair job.
“I don’t even know what happened,” he said. “Rex was fiddling around with a wrench and suddenly there was water all over the floor. Next thing I know, he’s fallen into the bowl and is yowling for me to call 911 or a plumber.” 
When Rex posted his ordeal to the Reddit forums and berated the people whose advice led him astray, he was instantly upvoted to the front page. Maxwell said he suspected it was the above photo that catapulted him to the sudden popularity.

Cat Accused of Cheating at ‘Game of Life’
A cat named Tator Tot won a suspicious victory in the popular board game Life on Friday, prompting accusations of cheating and collusion with other players.
"You’re telling me he lands on the best job, gets a family of four in three turns, and never lands on a penalty space?" says Nathan Perkins, one of the players disenfranchised by Mr. Tot’s extraordinary stroke of luck. "Something’s up with that."

Friends Plan Intervention for Cat’s Sneaker Fetish
It started with a single pair of Keds he found in the alley outside his apartment building, according to friends, but Percy the cat’s sneaker obsession has now gotten completely out of hand.
"I could deal with it if he was just spending a lot of money on shoes," said friend Jameel Stanhope, "but he’s hoarding them. Mostly used. Sometimes stolen."
Stanhope told The Fluffington Post that the cat now has over 100 pairs of shoes and has already scared off three separate roommates this year because of his footwear fetish.
"It’s hard to keep a roommate when they walk in on you face deep in a pair of their Reeboks," said Stanhope.
Percy’s friends plan to hold an intervention this weekend to confront the cat about his problem.

USPS Suspends Friday Kitten Delivery
Bad news, kitten fans. The United States Postal Service has announced that, due to budgetary constraints, it will be forced to cease Friday kitten deliveries beginning in August. The USPS ended Saturday cat delivery in 2012.
"This is a really sad day for the USPS and for the efficient delivery of kittens," said USPS historian Jaques Moutan. "A fully functioning feline delivery system is a vital necessity for a modern society, and I’m not sure that any of us will benefit from privatization."
The USPS began cat deliveries in 1974 and added Saturday service to cope with demand during the kitten boom of mid-1980s. Demand remained steady throughout the next decade, spiking again with the arrival of e-commerce. But recent supply chain advances have enabled private carriers like DHL and FedEx to offer kitten delivery at better prices than the USPS.
Monday through Thursday kitten delivery will remain unaffected, but a spokesperson for the Postal Service told The Fluffington Post that more restructuring may be on the way next year.
