This adorable pair was first adopted from the San Francisco SPCA in 2008, but they were sadly returned due to unfortunate circumstances. They are so bonded that the shelter has been trying to find them a home together, which clearly hasn't been easy.

Things are not always as they appear, and luckily for one kitten, a passerby stopped to take a second look.

Dara Taylor of Elyria, Ohio, was driving to work on Monday when she found a gray kitten frozen to the road in northeast Ohio and rescued it. She says she initially thought it was a chunk of ice and was shocked when it tried to move.

"As I got out of the car, I could hear him meowing so loudly and pitifully and his little heart was beating so fast,” she tells The Chronicle-Telegram.

VIDEO: New Cat Breed Looks Like a Tiny, Adorable Werewolf

Originally posted 02/14/2014 09:00 AM

Full moons just got a little fluffier with a new breed of cat called the Lykois, also known as "the Werecat."

These cuties are the result of a natural genetic mutation in domestic shorthair cats that restricts fur growth. The result is a feline missing hair around the eyes, nose and ears, giving the animal a werewolf-ish appearance.

Breeders have dubbed the kitties Lykois, which is Greek for wolf. But don't worry, this breed isn't known for its bite. According to Opposing Views, werecats have very dog-like personalities.

Explaining Taylor Swift's Songs with Pictures of Cats

Originally posted 01/25/2014 07:45 AM

The boys who break Taylor Swift's heart are not all that different from cats when you think about it.

Charming, handsome, furry (we're looking at you, Jake Gyllenhaal), cunning, indignant ... you get the point. So it's no surprise Swift, mom to a kitty named Meredith, loves both.

But it's her unabashed ability to turn said boys into hit songs that's sending her to Sunday's Grammy Awards, where the four-time nominee is hoping to add some more accolades to her name. Her album Red, in all its tear-stained, girl-power glory, is up for album of the year and best country album.

Until Sunday, we'll be listening to our favorite cat lady's Grammy contender. But instead of dissecting each lyric to figure out which famous ex she's singing about, we'll leave the interpretations, track by track, up to these felines.
