For today’s edition of Caturday, we’d like to talk about cats…in romance novels! Some cats are feline companions to the hero or heroine, some cats ARE the hero or heroine. So we’d like to know which books featuring cats — in any iteration — are your favorites?

Happy Halloween, everyone! Let’s launch into Caturday, shall we?
People are superstitious, often ridiculously so, which means that 40% of all cats in shelters are black cats. Poor kitties can’t help the color of their fur!*
But some shelters around the country are trying to encourage black cat adoption, especially at Halloween.
Here’s why you should adopt a black cat:
–They are always dressed for black tie events.
–There is no better combination than black hair fur and green eyes.
–Black goes with everything.
*Full disclosure: I have a black cat.
Also, it’s not too late to enter for a chance to win the right to name a cat in an upcoming author’s book! Check out authorsforcats for details on this excellent cause.
The Huffington Post ran a story about a woman who rescued a kitten from the middle of a busy intersection. This is the very end, where the rescue happens.
And here’s the whole thing:
It’s a concept that began in Japan, and now you’re beginning to see some cat cafes pop up in the United States (this clip is from a cat cafe in London). Meow Parlour in New York City allows you to rent time in the cafe where they have adoptable free roaming cats. Meow Parlour says, “You can come for as little as half an hour so you can just pet the cats or stay for up to five hours where you can use our free wi-fi while a cat naps next to you.”
Meow Parlour also offers special events such as Yoga & Kitties Class.
Celebrate Caturday by viewing pix of cats getting into places they absolutely should not be.
A few weekends ago, we shared TinyKittens.com, which has two live feeds. One of the feeds shows Cassidy, a feral kitten who lost his two back legs and shouldn’t be alive, but made it. Now Cassidy has been fitted for a TinyWheelchair, and you can see his delight when he begins to move.
See what Cassidy is up to today:
For today’s Caturday, we want to present this delightful gallery, where Game of Thrones characters are paired with their feline counterparts. Of course Tywin is a sphinx cat!
And while we’re thus amused, let us know — do you think Jon Snow is really dead? (I totally do not).
If you are looking for a good way to waste many hours of your day, click on over to TinyKittens.com and hit the livestream, where more than ten kittens are to be found sleeping, grooming, playing, or just looking adorable.
We’re sorry you just spent more time than you dreamed possible watching small kittens hanging out.
What’s better for a leisurely Saturday than snuggling up with a book? The addition of a cat to the book/lazy afternoon combination!
In honor of how much we love Caturday (don’t you?), we present a very cute kitty (oh, and model Andre Hamman is there, too), and encourage you to share pix of your favorite feline (hot guy optional, but encouraged).
