Cat Nominated for “Ice Bucket Challenge”
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
It’s been all over the web. Eventually it had to get around to Lyle. 
The cat opened up his Facebook yesterday morning to find that he’d been nominated for the popular “Ice Bucket Challenge” by a friend. Suffice it to say, he was not pleased. 
"Lyle hates water," says friend Jon O’Rourke. "He’s like most cats in that regard. But freezing cold water a bunch with ice in it? There’s no way he’s doing that."
Lyle had better decide quickly - at the time of this writing, the cat had less than ten hours to douse himself in ice water or donate to ALS research.
"He’s a bit torn," says O’Rourke. "He’s all for philanthropy, but he doesn’t want to look like a wimp. I hope his wallet’s as big as his ego."

Kitty Daredevil Performs Endurance Feat
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
According to her manager, Koko the cat is more than halfway through her latest feat of endurance, billed as ‘The Post of Doom.’ In interviews prior to the event, the cat had promised to stay atop her scratching post for five whole minutes.
"She’s been training for months," says Sid Randolph. "Hopping up on the post, staying for a few seconds. Hopping back up on the post, staying for a few more seconds. It’s a lot more mental than physical."
After completing the challenge, the cat will attempt a death-defying free-fall to the soft carpet below, and will then likely take a nap.
"You have to admire her fortitude," says Randolph. "I mean, David Blaine did basically the same thing, but he wasn’t nearly as cute. Koko just takes it to a whole other level."
The stunt will culminate in a live one-hour special on ABC, similar to the cat’s previous feat, ‘Cardboard Box of Insanity.’

Cat Stuns Friends with ‘Shark Selfie’
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
Visitors to Lily’s Instagram page likely did a double take last weekend - a picture marked “#sharkselfie” appeared to show the cat next to a ferocious great white shark.
"I couldn’t believe it when I saw it," says Megan Dunn, a friend. "Lily’s always been pretty adventurous, but a shark seemed crazy - even for her."
The photo soon took on a life of its own.
"Reddit picked it up, then BuzzFeed," says Dunn. "The attention got to be a bit too much. Eventually she had to tell people it wasn’t a real shark. Of course, I knew that all along."
During an interview with The Fluffington Post, Dunn was started when her Instagram app refreshed, showing Lily atop a very convincing velociraptor.
More details as they develop…

Kitten Is So Totally Ready For Back to School
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Bring on the desks and pencils! Maxine, a tabby from Seattle, is ready to be done with summer and hit the books. The young kitten will be starting her freshman year at Emerald City High and she’s very excited for all the academic and extracurricular adventures of the next four years.
BFF Sharleen Adams, also a rising freshman, doesn’t share the cat’s enthusiasm for the coming fall.
“Yeah, Maxine is all about starting high school,” she said while texting.
“She’s really type A and on top of things. I’m, like, dreading it. Although that new bag she got is super cute. Maybe I’d be more productive if I got one too.”
