"This human and his crazy ideas!" - these cats, probably.

If you're crazy bored at home with nothing to do -- perhaps create a giant display of dominos for the sole purrpose of entertaining your cats! 

That's what 'Cat Navi Desk' did, and look how fun it turned out! We're pretty sure this took ages but turns out it was totally worth it!

Artist Makes Sculptures Out of Recycled Silverware

Matt Wilson, the artist behind these extraordinary sculptures, is influenced by natural elements of the environment in which he lives. 

He dives into his sculpture exploration on his website, "Using recycled and organic materials- scrap metal, reclaimed wood, bone, etc., my sculptures depict continuous life cycles that consciously and unconsciously permeate our awareness. The upcycled work I create is a testimony to the belief of conserving and appreciating our resources, so that the environment in which we live will continue to be an environment in which we desire to live. 

My goal as an artist is to make artwork unlike art people have seen, while at the same time recognizable in the identity of everyday materials. I only hope the sculptures will inspire others to appreciate the simple, neglected items from which my creations are born."

We think Wilson achieved that goal with these mesmerizing pieces of art. 

Prepare to be stunned.

Purrity: Blessed Images Of Holy Cats

What if cats are actually a higher power, here on Earth, to help guide us? Or to simply have us worship them?

Turns out, that was totally believed that back in ancient Egypt! They believed that cats held a bit of divine energy within them.

But maybe they were truly onto something that has since escaped the human eye...only for it to be revealed in a series of photos such as this. 

Are cats a higher power? Check out the pics down below and decide for yourselves. We're going with "heck yeah!"

Natalie Kepa took her six-year-old daughter, Stella, waterskiing in Kumutoto Bay, New Zealand, when they ran into something unexpected -- orcas! 

Kepa told Storyful that upon first seeing the orcas, she simply "didn't know what to do."

As you can see in the video, Stella is absolute natural waterskiing, her mom and others cheer her on as she takes on this new activity for the very first time. However, soon those cheers turn into shouts of shock. 

"I was beside myself," Natalie told Storyful. Stella, on the other hand, "totally loved it," Natalie said. She "was crazily calm throughout" and is now keen to get out again as her friends thing she's an awesome "whale rider."

According to Whale Facts, orcas tackle large prey and won't attack a human unless threatened. Did you know that there are no known cases of humans being killed by them in the wild? Just something to chew on.

Be sure to look at the bottom of the video under the wake at 0:29 in the water... CRAZY.

Gorilla's Unique Pigmentation On Fingers Goes Viral

We all know according to evolution, we are descendants of apes. Yet, it's even more clear after seeing images of just one gorilla. 

Meet Anaka, who resides at the Zoo Altanta. Anaka is unique, not only in terms of skin, but in personality as well. "[She's] often barking at her mom and others to get a prime spot for food and juice," Altanta Zoo wrote on their website. "She is often seen riding piggyback on her brother and sisters."

When the Morena Lale commented on a post from the zoo, asking if Anaka had vitiligo (a skin condition characterized by loss of skin pigmentation).

The Zoo responded, "Well, her skin pigment has always been like that and hasn't changed over the years, so we think it's just a cool birthmark."

Cool, indeed!

Macro-photography Shows The Immense Beauty Of Mushrooms

Marco-photographer extraordinaire, Alison Pollack, focuses her photography on fungi and Myxomycetes.

Pollack's Instagram account is jam-packed with stunning photos of these minuscule hypnotic mushrooms. In an interview with PetaPixel, Pollack reveals how she got started, "I started to get serious about mushroom and Myxomycete photography a couple of years ago, when I found and photographed my first Myxomycete. I had no idea what it was, so I looked it up online. I was immediately fascinated with the Myxomycete life cycle, and I have been avidly hunting and photographing them ever since.

As I looked for the tiny Myxos, I also started noticing really tiny fungi, and started photographing them as well. These tiny organisms are all over the forest when it rains, but they are so small that people just don't see them. My goal is to reveal their beauty and magic!"

You have definitely done so! Scroll down to see some of that magic mushroom revealed by Pollack:
