People Posing With Their Cats More Than 100 Years Ago

Sad News: Rubble, World's Oldest Cat, Dies at 31

His owner Michele Heritage of Exeter, England, confirmed the news, telling South West News Service that Rubble died before reaching his milestone 32nd birthday, which would have been in May.

The cat who lives 31 years, the equivalent of 150 human years, had no specific health issues but became 'very thin' and died of old age. 

Michele got Rubble as a kitten for her 20th birthday, in May 1988, and they have been together ever since: "He was part of a litter of cats that my sister's friend had and I had just left home. I was lonely living on my own, so I got him in as a kitten". she told SWNS.

When asked about the fluffy Maine coon' long life, she credited it to her pet parenting, doting on the animal as if he was her own son, as she hasn't had kids of her own. She also recounted Rubble's final days, sharing that the pet deteriorated "very quickly toward the end."

RIP, dear Rubble.

Japanese Owner Documents His Cats Obsession With Paper Sliding Doors

Anyone who lives with cats and owns a Shoji, those traditional Japanese paper sliding doors, knows that the required maintenance for paper is a lot more frequent because cats are the natural enemy of a shut shoji door.

Japanese Twitter user Kokonananya (@kokonananya) knows this very well as his cats are obsessed with them. 

Every once in a while he posts on Twitter funny photos of them causing shoji door havoc. 

This last time, however, Kookonananya caught his cats red-pawed at the crime scene, and their adorable reaction was priceless.

Cat-ographer Captures Candid Photos Of Cats Living In Working Places

While cats are usually considered less social, there are many curious kittens who prefer to be right in the middle of what a person is doing—no matter how inconvenient their presence may be. 

Italian Photographer, Marianna Zampieri, started capturing cats at work for her aptly-titled series C-AT WORK.

The talented photographer, who describes herself as Cat-ographer, takes documentary-style images (mostly in black and white) of cats in places of business and provides a fascinating look at how cats claim even the most uninviting workplaces as their own. From a salon to a library to a recording studio, these animals are seen lounging on the equipment or causing adorable distractions to their humans.

Zampieri was first attracted to the idea because it allowed her to see felines in "the most unusual environments… where we are not used to seeing them." My goal," Zampieri told My Modern Met, "is always to try to capture the beauty of a relationship between cats and people and demonstrate the great dignity and the incredible adaptability of these animals in any situation."
