Jiska Is The Kat’s Miauw

jiskat

Hi Burgers,

This week’s Featured User sends us all a warm “hallo” from the Netherlands. Jiskat believes that Amsterdam should be the first place we visit when we do an international Cheez Fren tour (should we get a Kickstarter going?), but not for the reason you’re all thinking. She wants us to visit the Poezenboot, a floating kitteh sanctuary! I think we have an official Dutch Lolcats ambassador, Whirled Dominayshun!

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
It’s a merge of my name and the Dutch word for cat. My name is Jiska, and the Dutch word for cat is kat.

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I love word jokes. Been looking in on the Cheezburger Network for years before I decided to join 3 years ago. I’m not a very talented ‘captioniser’. Most jokes are lost in translation from Dutch to English, and I wanted to see what other people would come up with captioning my pictures. I truly do love when people caption my pics!!!

What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
I accept all friend requests. Can’t tell if you like a person if you don’t try to get to know them. But if in time Cheezfriends are not active in some form, like communication, favoriting LOLs, or making LOLs or Gifs, I will delete them.

What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
I have 3 cats of very different age’s (2, 5, and 22 years af age), and all 3 have totally different personalities! So… Lolcats obviously.

Cheez Force One Vs Henry The Brussels Griffon

Hi Burgers,

Yesterday the sun came out in Seattle, so a few of us at Cheezburger HQ took advantage of a chance to try out Cheez Force One, the first asset in our drone force.

IMAG0861

As we were working out the controls, my pup Henry decided the thing was absolutely a threat to us all (or possibly just a large, weird pigeon) and proceeded to attack with vigor.

What a little champ. He saved us all.

And of course we Go Pro’d the inaugural flight so we could all wave hello!

The future is now everyone, please watch the skies for cheezburger deliveries.

Cheers,
Cheezburger

One Step Closer To Whirled Dominayshun

Hi Burgers,

Remember when you bought that cat themed Christmas sweater that said “Meow-y Catsmas”? Or how about the leggings patterned with sprawling cats flying through the star spangled heavens?

Was your cat amused?

Disappointed cat is very disappointed.

Our feline overlords have found a means of retribution for our tactless insults against feline divinity, and we here at Cheezburger have no choice but to bend to their will (we’re being held at claw point). We have been compelled to team up with the online clothing community Betabrand and create a unique human-inspired collection of cat apparel!

Pictured below are the Human Onesie Pajamas. No, it is not a coincidence that the cat’s face terrifyingly protrudes from the human mouth. They requested that specifically.
1150x673xcheezburger_clothes_for_cats_collection_1.jpg.pagespeed.ic.dvHsdnRz8g
Also, I’m just going to say it: nipples.

Beginning today, this limited-edition collection is available at Betabrand and offers fashion-conscious cat “owners” a perfect gift solution just in time for National Pet Day on April 11.

Aside from the onesie there will also be The Human Shirt.

And the Human-Patterned Crop Top or Muscle Tee.
1150x673xcheezburger_clothes_for_cats_collection_2.jpg.pagespeed.ic.e9SBCg4IHa

All three options are on sale now, and there is a sizing chart available on the site. There is a limited supply, so unless you want every glass of water you pour to be ruthlessly hurled to the ground until the end of time, head over to Betabrand now!

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Dragons, Dragons As Far As The Eye Can See

Hi Burgers,

We live in an awesome time where just when you’re starting to get upset that zombies are no longer going to be a part your life, dragons come along to save the day (or possibly burn your favorite characters to a crisp).

The fourth season of The Walking Dead has come to an end just in time for the next season of Game Of Thrones to begin. As of today, we will putting the Walking Dead site into hibernation until next season, and we will also be opening up a GOT site for all of your Westeros oriented needs.

Just a Fair warning, there will be spoilers as they air; we’ll be keeping up with HBO’s schedule, so avoid the site on Mondays if you haven’t seen the latest episode.

Be sure to say farewell to the zombies properly by checking out this list of All The Shocking (And Not So Shocking) Moments In The Walking Dead’s Season 4 Finale.

Cheers,

Becky Has The Best Dad Ever

beckysdad

Hi Burgers,

This week’s Featured User hears voices, but don’t worry, he appears to only use them for the noble cause of making lols. Beckysdad is a funny dude with a constant lol muse in his lab Becky. He’s also a talented photographer, a volunteer math teacher and passionate about cooking. What more could you ask for?

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
It’s a simple story…Becky is the name of the Black Labrador Retriever that shares my home and my heart. She was eight months old when I rescued her. It’s hard to imagine but she’d been on a 24 kill list in another shelter before the good folks at Tony Larussa’s Animal Rescue Foundation grabbed her. Their mission is to save dogs and cats whose time has run out at other shelters. Her name was Corkscrew in the shelter so I guess I gave her a forever home and saved her from going through life with that name.

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made
you want to join?

It must have been back some time in 2010 when I joined because I’d been here for a bit before the great Waterblol Fight of Twenty-Lebenty. I registered just to create some LOLs. If you’d told me that I would make many great friends that would make me stick around more than making LOLs I wouldn’t have believed you…but that’s the case.

What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new
friend?

I’ve not been one to reach out to others too much but I’ve been blessed to have a good number of great people extend the floofy paw of friendship to me. I look at LOLs folks have made and faved for a similar sense of humor. Common friends are always a plus. I look for folks with a positive outlook on life and other people.

What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
The HotDog page is really where my heart is but I’ve been more than a bit shocked as over time the majority of LOLs I fave come from the LOLCats. My canine dominated world view has been infiltrated by an alarming number of cat people…gasp. While they celebrate the often aloof, independent cat and human as a can-opener stereotype, the obvious love they have for their furbabies is evident. Just as often they’re able to capture the playful innocence of a cat with truly clever LOLs. The LOLs created around the Kuppycakes Prep and summer camp theme have become some of my favorite.

The 3 Black Kitteh Avengers

A quick update that Black_Friday’s black kitteh list is currently the fourth most viewed article on Cheezburger and rising!

Hi Burgers,

A couple of months ago we had a little gif contest on the blog to determine who had the best gif avatar in Cheez Land. There were three winners and as a prize each one was offered a spot on the Front Page of their choice to post content of their choice.

One of those winners is the group profile Black_Friday, which is moderated by Sylviag and Booboo22. The gif-smith for their avatar is none other than Ani.s4. These three generally have no problem making FP worthy content regardless, but for their post they wanted to highlight the plight of black cats and the negative connotations against them. This adorable and informative list is their submission and it is proudly being displayed on Lolcats and I Can Has Animals.

Check it out and give them some kudos, thumbs up, favorites, Facebook shares, Tweets, head bonks, gooshy food and whatever else you feel is necessary for congratulations!

Let’s All Give Black Cats the Love They Deserve!

Let's All Give Black Cats the Love They Deserve!

Bravo you three! Thanks for the quality work.

Today Is National Make Up Your Own Holiday Day!

Hi Burgers,

Today is National Make Up Your Own Holiday Day. Naturally we have to jump on board, after all, who hasn’t thought to himself at some point, “wow, Bill Wi The Science Fi is darn clever network name, why isn’t there a holiday to commemorate this momentous occasion?” Well now is our chance to celebrate the things that have up until this point flown under the radar.

I’m sure there are some hilarious ideas out there in the community and we’ll be gathering them all day. Add one here on the blog or share on social media with the hashtag #MakeUpYourOwnHoliday.

Here’s one from the community:

National My Cat Is Trying To Kill Me Day
i.chzbgr-3
There definitely needs to be more awareness about this. It might laready be too late.

And here are a few I’ve been considering.

National Take A Selfie That Doesn’t Look Like A Selfie Day
i.chzbgr-2
The Selfie Olympics are one thing, but a true selfie master is able to display that right arm that mysteriously never makes it into the photo.

National You’ve Had Your Fun Southern Hemisphere Day
i.chzbgr
We’re just tired up here. Some of us are beginning to feel like The Night’s Watch. Winter is coming Southern Hemisphere.. Maybe.

National Don’t Kill My Favorite Game Of Thrones Character Day
Way to Sign Your Own Death Warrant
Speaking of GOT, I know the books are written and we just have to deal with it, but maybe a twist where someone actually lives? Anyone?
