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).

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).

Funny Video: How One Cat Is Beating the Cold

Originally posted 02/22/2015 09:10AM



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).

You've seen videos of dogs weeping, whimpering and emotionally breaking down when their masters return home from a tour of duty. In fact, some reunions can instantly make you bawl and retreat home to watch Marley & Me on Netflix for the 17th time.

Watching cats welcome their masters home from war has a drastically different effect, though: they'll make you laugh – really, really hard.

Despite everything he's been through, Olaf the cat is just as cheery as his namesake.

The 2-year-old feline was found by two construction workers frozen to the side of a building in Burlington, Ontario, last Friday and is now recovering at a clinic associated with the Burlington Humane Society. It is believed the cat was seeking warmth from the bone-chilling temperatures (about 25 degrees Fahrenheit) when the good Samaritans discovered him.

"The vet said that because he was so hypothermic and dehydrated, if he wasn't found within that time period he wouldn't have made it," shelter manager Adrienne Maranduik tells PEOPLE.
