Cats, they fascinate us, entertain us, keep us company... they are one of the worlds most popular pets, and probably the oldest domesticated animal. So have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a cat? The folks at Purina (Friskies) did, and that's why they fitted a little feline friend with a special camera and sent him on his merry way. 



The clips aren't the steadiest, but they are from a really interesting perspective. From play-time to nap-time, cat-fights and even a scene eating a spider! These clips are worth watchin'



For being the first movie ever filmed by a cat, this is pretty interesting stuff. I'm still waiting for them to fit cats like "lasers" but until then this will have to do:

Cheers to wishing you were a cat... all that napping...

Yup! It's Caturday! I just wanted to share the joy with everyone and remind you that Saturday continues to be our best viewed day! We set a record last Saturday by bringing viewers from all over the world to the site. It's just a matter of time before we can check off all the continents (If you know anyone in Australia or Antarctica... send'em a link!). We at Memento Mori are so pleased to have such a wide audience and you guys truly make it worth spending so many hours behind this screen! (Remember, the more emails, comments, Facebook shares, and Tweets we get, the more content get's generated and the more fun we'll all have with this)


Here's to hoping that this Saturday we smash the record and break the 500 views in a day mark! 
A huge cheers to all of you guys who make this real. Remember, life is what you make of it, and it's up to you to choose awesome!

It's been four long years, but we finally have an answer. For so long we've pondered the mysterious and illusive ways that cats drink. The conclusions we've found along the way are just simple astonishing!
1. Cats don't use straws... no matter how hard you try!
2. Cats don't like fizzy drinks... gives them gas...
3. Cats have very expensive taste in wine... must be the refined sense of smell
4. There is no #4.
5. I'm just making this rubbish up, let's get back to the real science.


So this is an actual thing, researchers have actually been studying the way cats drink for four years and have released their findings in science journals. It turns out cats all drink the same way. Whether it be a tiny house-cat or a lion, they all employ the same tricks to lap up liquids. The method, sticking a barbed tongue into the liquid and quickly removing it to form a column of liquid that they clamp their mouth shut on before swallowing the fluid. Some cats have even developed the ability to curl their tongues into a ladle like shape to scoop the water into their mouths. Sound a bit weird? Well watch it in slow-mo for yourself:

We here at Memento Mori have spent an arduous amount of time researching the contents of the internet. We've spent hours gathering stats on what you people like and what sorts of things keep people coming back, day after day, to the net...

From the data we've gathered, we have determined without a doubt that... you people are sick! Oh my! The stuff you like is disgusting and wrong, very wrong!


The only thing we found that wasn't perverse, gross, or borderline illegal was cats! How you guys love your cats! Whether they are doing funny things, speaking with poor grammar, or relentlessly chasing cheezeburgers... you guys have made it loud and clear! Bring on the Caturday!
