If this was a different life, and I worked as an emergency responder, here is the kind of report that would easily send me dashing out the door: A tiny, adorable kitten, stuck on the highway. The kitten can’t escape because of traffic congestion. That exact situation played out in Abu Dhabi this week.
Alright, Lotus. Did you really think you could get away with this? Not the joke, obviously—any journalist knows a press release embargoed for April 1 is meant for trickery. But did you really think you could get away with releasing photos of cats in cute race helmets for April Fools’ Day and not start selling them?
Sometimes it doesn’t take much to go from the streets to stardom, but this kitten had a long road to get there—a 300-mile one, to be exact. After being discovered inside of the bumper of a naval helicopter pilot’s car, this adorable face became the cover of a charity calendar for the Royal Navy.

Opel, a solid contender for the least cool car company on earth, just too a great step forward in fashion consciousness and also cuteness. They got Karl Lagerfeld's cat.
Even kitties liked today's Italian GP.
Ashley Force is an NHRA Top Fuel Funny Car drag racer, and an heir to the John Force drag racing dynasty. She also recently gave an interview to Catster.com, in which she said she has owned eleven cats, one of which was named Licorice #2. I hereby posit that Ashley Force is a crazy cat person.
It's a rallycross-prepped Subaru and ohhhhhmygoddddddddddd kittens! They're everywhere!
