Zombie cat has been one-upped. Amigo the kitty not only returned from the dead, he came back to life after being cremated ... or at least that's what his owners thought at first.

According to Metro, John and Margaret Ross's cat named Amigo recently went missing from the couple's home in Hackney, England. Shortly after the pet's disappearance, a cat was run over and killed in the neighborhood. The Rosses were heartbroken to discover the deceased feline looked just like their sweet Amigo.

How Atchoum, the Unusually Furry Feline, Became Famous

Originally posted 03/07/2015 09:05 AM

Atchoum the cat now has tens of thousands of Instagram followers, and his owner, Nathalie Côté, had a feeling he'd be an Internet sensation.

Atchoum's rise to fame began with a dare from Côté's kids to post a photo of the unusually hairy Persian kitty on Facebook. The kids thought that no more than 100 people would like the snap, but mom knew he would make a splash.

"Atchoum was so cute!" Côté tells PEOPLE. She received the feline as a gift last July from a coworker at the Quebec veterinary hospital where she works as a groomer. "Differences are beautiful in living things."

Atchoum, who was born with hypertrichosis (a rare condition that causes excess hair), is otherwise healthy, says Côté – but he requires a lot of care, including regular brushing to prevent matting of his hirsute coat.

This cat was having a purr-fect day – you know, the kind filled with lots of catnip and tuna. Then, all of a sudden she realized she was being filmed without her consent.

On the unsuspecting day in question, the kitty, who belongs to YouTube user 1313EbutUoy, is busy grooming her fur toy near a window in her home. What she doesn't know is that her owner is capturing it for all posterity (a.k.a. the Internet).

29-Year-Old Cat Could Be World's Oldest

Tiffany Two, there may be a cat older than you.

A 29-year-old feline from Karlskoga, Sweden, is vying for the title of the world's oldest living cat, which would bump 26-year-old Tiffany Two from her feline throne.

According to FOX 8 news, Asa Wickberg, the owner of a 29-year-old cat named Missan, says she adopted her feline in 1985. Recently, Wickberg spotted an article about Tiffany Two being named the world's Oldest Living Cat by Guinness World Records and realized that her kitty was older (wiser? That is still unclear).

How One Cat Is Beating the Cold

Originally posted 02/22/2015 09:10 AM

It's so cold outside across most of the country right now that even cats are sharing screen grabs of the bone-chilling temperatures on their iPhones.

The kitty in this video is well aware of the deep-freeze and it appears he isn't moving from his current position in front of this gloriously radiating space heater until spring.

When another feline walks toward the heater – much like a innocent Forrest Gump walking on the bus on the first day of school – the feline in the seated position looks at him in disgust and says, "Seat's taken." (As you can see, we speak cat, which comes in really handy at work).
