Japanese artist Wakuneco shows us how she transforms wool into an intricate, nearly photorealistic sculptural portrait of a cat’s head. Anyone can learn the art of needle-felting, but it requires tremendous precision and persistence to get these sort of results. More here.
Mario Kitty finds out that Princess Kitty has gone missing, and recruits the help of Human Luigi to rescue her in this cute, charming, and well-executed short film by Mr.TVCow. We’re dying to see what Bowser looks like. We’re thinking an English mastiff with a spiky collar.

It’s been a while since we posted a cat video here on The Awesomer, so this 10-minute supercut should more than make up for their absence, as we meet dozens of kitties to see what they’re up to after a dip into the old wacky weed. Most of them are just naturally high.
Give your cat a different happy place every day with the Ripple Rug. It consists of a base rug and a detachable top layer peppered with holes. The top layer has Velcro strips that let you reshape it on the base rug. It’s made from recycled plastic bottles and is non-toxic.

2 Chainz and his DJ E. Sudd met with the owner of JumpnSpots to check out some of the latter’s crazy expensive kittens. The cattery is known for its “ocicats”, a mixed breed that’s playful and looks like an ocelot. They also have half-serval kittens that go for $15K each.
