Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: white cat ($50)
“Beautiful white cat. I know that it is old, but not sure how old. It is a beautiful cat for those cat lovers!”
Blame it on joblessness, blame it on the country going to shit, but whatever the case, one thing is true: People are getting very bored with themselves. This has resulted in several phenomena. Planking, leisure diving and Tebowing come to mind (to name a few). Now there's something else. I'm late to the game on this one (a coworker already beat me to the punch on this topic), but apparently people are cutting out the center of bread slices and putting it on cats' heads. Fucking for real. This probably violates several animal rights laws. Anyways, here's a breading website. Jesus.

Japanese cat-fashion designer Takako Iwasa brings you the latest trends in feline couture with her new book Fashion Cats. Furry supermodels Prin and Koutaro patiently and calmly don the highest fashions in delicate laces, proper gentleman's wear and even animalian costume.
One might think that feline nature might cause the two models to be less than pleased with their tight-fitting caps, but this video portrays their willing nature ... well, at least compared to some.
Fashion just a got a whole lot cuter.

Free cat to bad home
My cat knows I’m an insomniac and she thinks it’s funny
It’s been nearly three days since I last slept. Or has it been four?
In either case, my cat is a jerk.
I’ve probably complained about her before.
This is my second week working on staff at the illustrious Weekly Alibi. The first week, I was deathly ill. That’s just my luck.
This week, I have been, without fail, stirred from restless sleep by the pitter patter of clawed paws raking my face. There is also the whiskers-in-the-nose face rub and the dreaded nose bite.
The cat also bites my feet and howls like a banshee if I stall.
She eats breakfast at 3:30 a.m. I will feed her. She demands it. She apparently eats again at 6:30 a.m. and meaningless torture commences at 7:30 a.m. I am usually crying by 8 a.m.
I have taken to flinging her from the bed, hoping that the threat of bodily injury will spark some sort of survival instinct in the reptilian brain of hers. I usually feel guilty about this. I don’t actually want to hurt the kitty as I am a 250 pound galoot; I only want sleep, precious, little sleep.
Dogs Vs Cats
Last Friday the dog people won. It wasn’t really much of a race, seeing as it was Take Your Dog to Work Day. Here at the Alibi we often have dogs of various sizes running around, but TYDTWD found an extra pooch chillin’ in newspaper land.
But, at least according to some Facebook group, Wednesday is the day for cat people to take revenge! It’s Bring Your Cats (notice the plural) to Work Day. Whoo hoo.
No more shall the cat people be marginalized, forced to rid their clothing of fur, explain that the baggies in our pockets are filled with the kindest of catnip or be made fun of for purring when we’re happy. Our cat friends can show our coworkers why we’re as crazy as we are.
So, allergics, stock up on your favorite allergy medicine, bring a lint brush and be prepared for keyboard sleeping. It’s a cat-vasion!
Luckily for all Wednesday is not a deadline day for the Alibi, otherwise the entire paper might look like this: uu˙∆˜†aq;y7803aqby an loiq3ruqht5j n
And, sadly, my beasts shall stay at home because while I like the idea of Bring Your Cat to Work Day, I’m pretty sure my cats wouldn’t like it at all.

Beware the Antifreeze
Dog and cat owners should be aware that there have been antifreeze poisonings reported in the neighborhoods near Fourth Street and Montaño. Antifreeze, which has a sweet taste, is deadly to humans and animals. Even a very small amount licked off paws can cause an agonizing death for a dog or cat. People should try to keep their animals in their yards and be aware of containers in alleys, lots or public areas. If anyone finds anything, please call 311 and ask for Animal Welfare Department.
