If you are anything like me, the second my cat does anything remotely cute...I pull me phone out. This will eventually lead to a phone with over 1,000 photos of my cat sleeping, eating, and...sleeping.
In saying this, I have no regrets. Photos of my cat brighten my day and help me get by when I am away from them. But taking an absurd amount of photos of you cat can also lead to some hilarious footage.
Here are some cats who were caught mid-sneeze that are too adorable not to share.

2. This cat is rolling their eye at you, 'DUH'.
3. Arg, Monday again!
4. Someone must have had something extremely funny to say.

Go to any store selling Halloween decorations and I guarantee will see a black cat looking scary somewhere. Have you ever wondered what the deal is? Why are cats 'bad luck' and associated with Halloween?
Turns out, black cats were considered a symbol of bad omens or being part of the which family. They claimed witches transformed themselves into black cats in order to prowl streets unobserved. So unless you still consider which craft a thing or believe humans can change themselves into animals then you can stop believing black cats are bad luck. That age old tale is over and they actually are even considered lucky in Australia and a few other countries.
Here are some amazing black cat facts that will most hopefully change your view on this so-called 'spooky' pet!
1. They can rust.
Well, if they sit in the sun too long their fur changes to a reddish dark brown. They call this 'rusting'. It usually goes back to normal black once the cat's melanin levels return to normal levels. This likely happens with outdoor cats or window lovers.
2. They are super cats.
According to research, black cats tend to have a higher resiliency against illness and diseases.
3. They have fire eyes.
These cats have so much melanin that it causes their irises to be golden/yellow!
Love comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes your family pets get along, whereas other times...not so much. Cats can get a bad rep for being kind of...rude. So whenever you bring a new animal into the house, you expect the worst.
Cats are pretty independent creatures, but that doesn't mean they can't make friends. The 'all dogs hate cats' assumption is all wrong. Most of the time, the family dog loves the cat and wants to play...it's the cats who have their own agenda.
But this is not always the case, there are some cats who put up with the dog, birds or even the lizards. Many who say they are even good friends. Here are some photos of cats who have formed a bond with some creatures you would not expect.
The Maine Coon is known as the largest breed of cat in the world.
The Maine Coon Cat is a native American long-haired cat. There are countless stories and tales about how or where the Maine Coon came about. Their size, fluff, hunting talents and lovable personality make them a cat to remember.
Have you ever heard of a Maine Coon Cat before? Here are some interesting facts about this amazing breed.
1. Maine Coons are the largest domestic cat . A male can weigh up to 18 pounds! Pictured below is one of the largest at 28 pounds and four feet long!
2. They can have up to 75 different color combinations.
3. Like dogs, they love social and human interaction. They are loyal, friendly, and get along great with childern and other animals (just not mice).
4. Rather than meowing they chirp. See video below.
5. They are well suited for the winter. They have long, shaggy fur and large paws that can help them walk on snow. They have extremely bushy tails that can also serve as extra warmth if needed.
6. Their fur is water-resistant and can swim well. Most Maine Coons enjoy the water, unlike most domestic cats.
7. Some Maine Coons are born with 6 toes! "
Early in the breed’s development, Maine Coons were often polydactyls, meaning they were born with extra appendages on their paws. Some experts estimate that as many as 40% of early Maine Coons had this characteristic. It stemmed from a genetic mutation, which some people say helped the cats use their paws as “natural snowshoes” during snowy Maine winters." -
An estimated $330 million will be spent on pet costumes this Halloween Season. This number has jumped an astonishing 65% since 2010.
Is this trend cruel or harmless?
It all depends on how you look at it. Here at Meowingtons we believe you should never force your cat into something they don't want and if they look distressed, to take the costume off your pet. As long as the animal is not being physically hurt, there's no harm in dressing them up for a photo that will last you a lifetime. Cats enjoy making their humans laugh (and cry), so as long as they are ok with it, then so are we!
Here are some photos of cats who are enjoying their new looks!
1. Here is a little lion man!
2. Look Mom! I look AMAZING!!!!
4. Lazy Bunny Rabbit.
5. This kitty is extra focused on being Dino-like.
6. This bumble-bee is lookin' extra cute.
7. This kitty looks extra dapper in his new bow-tie
Now this product sure does LOOK a lot like wine but it shares nothing similar in terms of ingredients. Alcohol for cats is not what we are talking about here people -- it's alcohol-free & grape-free. It is a Catnip & beet based cat wine created by Apollo Peak so that your kitty can safely enjoy a glass of 'wine'.
Now rather than hyping your cat up, drinking or eating catnip has a different effect than smelling it. When eaten, catnip actually has the opposite effect, your cat mellows out. Rather than the typical rolling, flipping, and rubbing all over the catnip and eventually doing something to make you laugh. This wine will help them unwind with you, so you can relax together! Since you both had such hard days at work!
Meowingtons is a one stop shop for all your crazy cat lady needs. But there has been missing something.
Something that is pretty important if you are a lover of cats.
