Cat Silliness

Barbara J. Feldman

Are cat people sillier than non-cat people? Take a tour of today’s just-for-fun feline sites, and judge for yourself!

  • Cats Around the World3 stars

    Meet Dalli and Sammy from Houston, Texas. These two cats like to travel, and have the vacation snapshots to prove it. See Dalli and Sammy modeling in front of the Eiffel Tower, the Golden Gate Bridge and Faneuil Hall. What? You think these pictures are doctored? But Dalli and Sammy gave me their word. "We were not dropped into the photos by computer." If you just have to know more, you can email their owner. The truth may surprise you.

  • CLAW Theater5 stars

    "What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. It is you, my love! Oh, see how she cleans her whiskers with her paws?" Are you ready for kitty cat Shakespeare? CLAW is a large entertainment complex with thirteen must-see shows, including Romeo & Juliet, Robin Hood, Three Little Pigs and Snow White. The plays are witty and cute, with real cats playing all of the roles. Think "picture book adaptation," and you'll get some idea of what to expect.

  • Why Cats Paint4 stars

    No, this is not a parody site. These folks (and cats) are for real. "Only a very small percentage of domestic cats are known to paint. While about 60% of domestic cats will demarcate their territory with claw marks on trees, furniture , et cetera, perhaps only 0.001% will take paint on their paws and apply it to a surface." Visit to view the exhibition, watch a video of a feline artist at work, and determine if you cat is artistic (see "How do I know if my cat will paint?" on the FAQ page.) The companion site "Dancing with Cats" is also a hoot, or should I say "a meow?"

  • Honorable Mentions

    The following links are either new discoveries or sites that didn't make it into my newspaper column because of space constraints. Enjoy!
