Model feline Lorenzo on the, er, cat walk

From our furrriends at Associated Purrresss:

Cats are known for good grooming, but few have a sense of style. Now consider Lorenzo the cat, a notable and hilarious exception. The 2-year-old feline was recently profiled in an AP article because of his love of posing for the camera while wearing outfits.

The cat has scored thousands of fans, including Yoko Ono and Alanis Morissette, on Facebook, MySpace and YouTube. His Web searches on Yahoo! are also clawing their way upward. Over the past 24 hours, online lookups for "lorenzo the cat who wears clothes" shot up 75%.

While Lorenzo has exhibited a willingness to model everything from cabana wear to classic denim, he does have a few rules that must be followed if Joann Biondi, his photographer (and owner), wants his cooperation in front of the camera. First, no pants. Second, no caps. And third, much like David Hasselhoff, Lorenzo's top button must remain open. Hey, the fur's gotta breathe, baby!

Fashion Friday

For decades, New York's Algonquin Hotel has carried on a tradition of having a resident cat that roams freely around the premises. The current mascot is Matilda, and on August 11, 2010, the hotel celebrated her birthday by throwing a charity fashion show...starring other cats. Here, see some of the hilarious looks -- and the even funnier faces -- worn by the feline guests.

Jarhead Freed!

Oh! Good news from associated purrrresss!

Jarhead OCALA, Fla. – A black bear cub in Florida affectionately known as "jarhead" can finally enjoy a good meal.

A clear plastic container was removed from the 6-month-old cub's head after being stuck for at least 10 days. The cub poked its head into the jar when digging through trash in a neighborhood in central Florida.

Biologists say the cub was days away from death because the jar made it impossible to eat or drink. The team had to tranquilize the mother bear and then grab the cub to remove the jar from the bear's head.

The subdued mother was then put in a trap and the cubs followed. After she awoke and nursed the cubs, the bears were moved to a less populated area nearby.


Bet he happy to have jug taken off head!

NY police find live cat 'marinating' in car trunk

More disturbing news from the Associated Press:

Domestic Cat BUFFALO, N.Y. – Police say a traffic stop led to animal cruelty charges after they found a live cat "marinating" in oil and peppers in the trunk of a car.

Buffalo police say officers heard the cat meowing when they stopped 51-year-old Gary Korkuc of Cheektowaga to ticket him for running a stop sign Sunday night.

They say they checked the trunk and found 4-year-old Navarro in a cage, his fur covered with oil, crushed red peppers and chili peppers.

Police say Korkuc told them he did it because Navarro was ill-tempered. Korkuc was charged with cruelty and released; his phone number isn't listed.

Police say he told them he was going to cook Navarro. Korkuc also told officers a number of things that didn't make sense, including that his neutered male cat was pregnant.

Animal advocates have cleaned Navarro and put him up for adoption.


What I find particularly distrubing is that this human is obviously demented, yet they let him go? Obviously he need lots of mental treatment.

Hopefully Navarro will find a good home. He look like a handsome fellow.

Seven Dogs die after American Airlines flight

This very sad. From CNN News:

Authorities were investigating the deaths of seven dogs after an American Airlines flight to Chicago.

Flight 851 was an hour late taking off from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Tuesday morning, according to Mary Frances Fagan, director of corporate communications for American Airlines. The flight arrived at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport at 8:54 a.m. with 14 dog kennels on board.

All the dogs on Flight 851 were "bound for other locations," Fagan said. When ramp workers began the process of moving the dogs to the other flights, they noticed the animals looked "lethargic." They tried to cool them down. The animals were taken from the airport to a veterinarian, Fagan said. Seven dogs later died.

The incident was under investigation. The dogs are being necropsied. The airline said it has drawn no conclusions on what happened.

"We normally transport 100,000 or more every year. We certainly do value pets that our customers have as well as our own," Fagan said.

The American Airlines website details rules for accepting dogs and cats on aircraft. Among them: "Temperature restrictions have been established to ensure animals are not exposed to extreme heat or cold in the animal holding areas, terminal facilities, when moving the animals between terminal and aircraft or on an aircraft awaiting departure."

The airline's website says pets cannot be accepted when the current or forecasted temperature is warmer than 85 degrees at any location on the itinerary.

The Dallas Morning News reported the temperature at Tulsa International Airport was already 86 degrees at 7 a.m. before the plane's departure, and 87 degrees at 8 a.m.


I sometimes like to hide in car when bean is taking out groceries. She very careful, when I am around, that I not get shut in car, because it get very hot, very fast and I would die. I think this happen with these dogs while they sit on runway.

Now beans lose their beloved pets. Very sad.
