Have you heard of the "cat loaf?" A cat who's lying down, paws folded, looking like a loaf of bread? Angie Bailey, creator of Texts From Mittens, sees a lot of bread products in her cats -- such as a cinnamon roll, a croissant, and a bun. See all five silly nicknames.
Sometimes when I look at my cats I see cinnamon rolls and croissants, so of course I give them bread-worthy nicknames.

Elmo the cat was WAY overweight. How did he shed pounds and regain mobility? A water-therapy program at @UTKnoxville's CARES Center. See how it works.
Editor’s note: This story originally appeared in the March/April 2016 issue of Catster print magazine. Click here to subscribe to Catster magazine. Weighing 24 pounds, Elmo the cat had reached his breaking point. Because of severe arthritis, the 7-year-old Siamese walked with a limp and struggled to use the litter box. He didn’t want to play …

Would you go to a yoga class where cats roamed the room? Welcome to Yoga4Cats, a program in Illinois that has promoted adoption and helped raise money for a shelter.
Cats: They’re naturally flexible, capable of “meditating” (read: napping) for hours on end, and able to heighten any Zen-like state with the calming rumble of a purr. They seemingly were born to practice yoga. It doesn’t hurt that they can effortlessly put their feet behind their heads, either. Last June, Jeanette Skaluba, yogi and volunteer …

Your cat's #LitterBox problems might be related to how your cat gets along with you as well as the other people and pets in the home. Our resident behaviorist tells how you can fix or prevent problems.
The relationships cats have with household members — feline, canine, and human — can affect litter box usage. Peaceful coexistence or tumultuous fighting can influence cats to have either perfect litter box habits or to eliminate on sofas, beds, or in other troubling spots. When people go to the bathroom it’s for one obvious reason. …

Zeb was a "ragged old man" of a cat with only one eye and four teeth. He was rescued, though, and now he helps other senior cats. He's a Catster Hero.
Have you become totally Zebsessed yet? You don’t know what that means? Allow me to explain. Zeb is a senior FIV-positive cat with only one eye and four teeth. He was going about his business living life as a street cat until the day he was brought to the Cumberland County SPCA in New Jersey …

Have you visited a #CatCafe in the U.S.? We visit the Cat Store, a cat cafe in Hong Kong that's home to senior cats. Our correspondent says it feels like "the living room of your cat-loving Chinese auntie."
I know cat cafes. I’ve visited a lot. Some have been grand, such as Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium in London. Others, such as Neko Cafe Leon in Yokohama, have been like visiting your kooky uncle’s cat-filled rec room. I recently visited Cat Store cat cafe in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. The trip had a dubious start but …

Does your cat get in your way to get attention? This type of behavior could be a good sign. We explain.
Attention-seeking has risen to a new level among my cats. Until the adoption of Zorro, the suspected Ragdoll that we rescued in 2014, I’ve never had a cat whose personality came close to what Ragdolls are known for — a near-constant need for attention. I spend a lot of time with all my cats, but …

Grab a Tissue: @SarahDonner, known for her humorous and educational songwriting in Ask a Cat Lady, fosters kittens. One kitten, named Melon, is showing signs of heart failure. So she and her husband will adopt her, giving her as much love and care as possible in the time she has left.
This piece originally ran on Sarah Donner’s website, and we are sharing it with Catster readers (with permission) so you can comment on it. When foster kitten Melon came into our lives a few weeks ago, she was a greasy, sad bag of bones with infected eyes. Within one day she ran a fever of 105.3 …

It's #SpringBreak time. For cats. See how they party -- getting wasted, waking up with strange individuals. One even has a bad trip. Duuuude.
Ah, spring break. The thought conjures up images of college students guzzling cheap beer, lounging on the beach, and looking for hookups. The whole scene is complete chaos, and full of hangovers and regrets … well, not a whole lot of regrets. If cats were to participate in this time-honored week of party-hearty, they’d probably …

Do you wish you had cat ears? Have a look at these stylish cat earrings. They're the next best thing for a human. #CatChic
Editor’s note: This story originally appeared in the March/April 2016 issue of Catster print magazine. Click here to subscribe to Catster magazine. To me, cats have the most amazing — and cute — features: little pink noses, ticklish whiskers, dainty paw pads. But their ears are my favorite — the way they turn at a …

Vets often warn that it's dangerous to give pets medication intended for humans. Yet a British study shows 1.4 million people do this to avoid vet bills. Read the story in our sister publication, Veterinary Practice News.
One-third of pet owners who participated in the study have given their pets anti-histamines, antiseptic creams and even protein shakes.

Most cats hate water, right? Not this one. Nanakuli the one-eyed rescue cat is a surfer in Hawaii.
It’s not exactly groundbreaking feline science to state that cats, in general, do not like water. In the case of my own cat, Mimosa, if I mischievously flick a droplet of water on her while doing the washing up, she hightails it out of the kitchen with a panicky gusto. That being so, it’s safe …
