Cat Rents Out Room, Immediately Regrets Doing So
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
Breeze the cat was just looking to save a little money.
"He thought renting his room out on Craigslist would be a no-brainer," says Adam Furst, a friend. "It’s certainly spacious enough - at least for a cat.”
Almost immediately after posting the ad, Breeze got an email.
"It was from a guinea pig," says Furst. "Breeze had some reservations, but decided it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. Big mistake - there was a second guinea pig."
Now Breeze is dealing with cramped quarters as Griff and Mal have taken up indefinite residence.
"It’s bad enough that they took over his bed," says Furst. "They insist on eating lettuce all the time, though. It’s kind of like a bad sitcom - except it’s real."

Doctors Attempt Risky ‘Siamese Cat’ Separation
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
In a medical first, veterinarians will attempt to separate Louie and Peanut, a pair of cats that have become impossibly attached to one another.
"They’re what the medical community would term ‘Siamese cats,’" says Dr. Rand Carlson. "Except they’re not Siamese cats, as far as we can tell, they’re just regular cats - but they’re really, really stuck together.”
The procedure will involve a team of doctors equipped with the latest X-ray and laparoscopic technologies, as well as “several” cat treats.
"There will be a good deal of coaxing, and maybe some prying. There’s really no telling how long it will take," says Carlson. "We’ll try to work quickly - but if they start scratching or hissing, we’re going to have to slow things down."
At press time, the operation had been called off due to both cats “just not having it.”

Kitten-Con Is the Comic-Con of Cuteness

Young felines from around the world descended on Cleveland, TX this week for Kitten-Con, the annual celebration of geek culture, but with adorable kittens.

The cosplayers were out in force, many kittens dressing up like their favorite heroes from Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Doctor Who.

"Some of these cosplayers really go all-out," says Mark Hansen, who covers the geeky convention every year for Entertainment Weekly.”The attention to detail is flawless.”

The conference wraps up today with panels, product demos and a keynote from actor Wil Wheaton.

These kitties are up for adoption! Photographer Wendy Robbins dressed 17 kittens up in the hope of finding them good homes! Four have already been adopted. Thanks for the adorableness, Wendy!

Cat’s Rapid Transit System Could Reduce Dependency on Fossil Fuels
Dr. Boots, a researcher and cat at MIT, has unveiled what energy industry experts are calling a “game changer.”
"Imagine a transit system completely independent of gasoline," says Ashley Moore, a writer who covers energy matters for The Washington Post. “Well, yes, I suppose Tesla is doing that too. But, Dr. Boots’ system is powered by dogs.”
Hop on a dog at any Canine Docking Station and ride it to your destination. Drop the dog off at the receiving end and go about your business. No gas, no parking, no hassle.
"I suppose only cats and other small animals would really be able to take advantage of a system like this," admits Moore. "And you’ll need an awful lot of dog food to power it, which ultimately requires fossil fuels to produce. But — yeah, I guess it’s not really that great after all."
