Bill Murray warned us about cats and dogs living together in Ghostbusters, but now felines have taken it a step further. Kitties are currently spending their time cavorting with donkeys.
That's right, YouTube user Johnny Bomblast recently caught an orange kitten snuggling with a beast of burden on his trip to Lamu, Kenya.
It's the dark underbelly of the cat filming industry that nobody wants to talk about.
Well, we're not afraid to bring it to the forefront here, with this video of a cat owner completely eating it whilst filming her feline.
It's time people realized that the art of capturing cats on video can be hairy – especially when you're walking backward with a camera phone in your hand, like the star of this video. As the camerawoman gets footage of her kitty kneading away on a cat scratcher, she attempts to get a better glimpse – and that's where things go wrong.
It isn't easy being green.
Just ask this cat, who has undergone a complete transformation into a mystical green dragon in Russia.
Ekaterina Aidimirova is also the owner of a dog who has been fashioned into a bumblebee by the same groomer, Daria Gotz. She tells LiveLeak.com she decided to change her pup's look because she was dog-tired of the pet's regular fur.
It's just a-maze-ing!
Over the course of 15 years, Greg Krueger has built nearly 100 yards of feline fun at the St. James, Minnesota, home he shares with his four cats – and it puts every cat tower and tree we've seen to shame.
There are tunnels, stairs, cat- and bird-shaped lookouts, comfy beds and more in Krueger's purr-fect pad, which CBS 4 Minnesota is calling a "feline amusement park."
California dreamin' just got a lot furrier.
The state's first cat café, called Catfe, is opening in Los Angeles's Chinatown neighborhood in October, according to the LA Weekly – and it sounds like the service there is going to be cat-tastic.
Besides coffee, tea and other drinks, there will plenty of felines to pet and even adopt if you're older than 18, says the magazine.
Catfe is the brainchild of Carlos Wong, who created a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year in hopes of bringing coffee and cats to the masses in the United States. According to the LA Weekly, he partnered with Chinatown BID and Best Friends Animal Society L.A. for the venture, which will also feature costumed maids and deejays.

Record breaking isn't an activity reserved for Olympians.
High school student Draven Rodriguez of Schenectady, New York, recently had a purr-fect picture day with his cat, Mr. Bigglesworth. Now, the 16-year-old is trying to get the '80s-inspired, laser-filled shot included in his yearbook's portrait page.
There's the Super Bowl. And then there's the Su-purrr Bowl.
If you don't know your Cowboys from your catnip, we're going to assume you're just as excited as we are for this year's Kitten Bowl, which airs Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015, on the Hallmark Channel (and is hosted by animal advocate and North Shore Animal League America spokesperson Beth Stern). Basically, who would you rather root for: more than 90 adorable and adoptable rescue kittens or a bunch of sweaty guys?
