He doesn’t look like Yoda to me…

Yoda the cat is absolutely adorable even if he doesn’t really look like Yoda to me. I mean it’s not like his ears point out to the side like Yoda’s and Yoda doesn’t have 4 ears either. I can’t talk though cuz both of my cats have weird names too.

Anyways Yoda was being passed around in a bar since he was part of a large litter of kittens and his owners were looking for a home for him. Once he passed out on Ted Rock’s shoulder there was no choice for Ted and his wife Valerie. Even though they had promised eachother no more cats, (since they just had one die on them after 20 years,) they fell for the cute 8-week-old kitten and took him home. I would’ve too 😀 . I’m a sucker for Russian blues now.

They took him to the vet and they hadn’t seen anything like it before. His owner Valerie is sure that Yoda hears fine and is just like a normal cat besides his quiet meow. People have also asked Valerie if she had Yoda’s ears cut that way. I think that would be a horrible thing to do just to make your cat look funny. Then again people stunt the growth of their cats so they stay kitten-size during their also-stunted life of 2-3 years.

Thought I’d share this adorable cat anyways. It doesn’t help any that he looks a lot like one of mine 😉 . He’s sure to be a lolcat celebrity if their owners put up more pictures though.

1972 Makes the normal abnormal

I found this interesting artist today. His name is Joshua Levine and he makes sculptures of animals. These animals aren’t what you’d think though. He takes interesting looks at mutations and evolutions of these animals and they’re really cool looking. From the pictures on his site it looks like he prefers to do sculptures in massive groups rather than just 1 or 2 figures.

He has this thing called the Stare Suit which does makes people stare at him since there’s usually things attached to the top of it. From what it looks like there’s also 3 tv screens on the back of it. I think it also must have a camera on the front for most shows. Anyways, here’s some of the cool sculptures he’s made.

Yay a look at how the light up frogs are attached

Let me know what you think of these fun little sculptures. I wonder if they’re for sale or if he just uses them for shows. It’d be really cool to have one.
