We must be dreaming! Today, we learned that Hello Kitty is not a cat, but instead a little girl who lives in England with her parents and twin sister Mimmy. To ease our discombobulation and orient ourselves, we’ve compiled a list of characters who not only look like cats, but are cats! And they’re jolly good entertainment, as well: 
Felix the Cat - because any list about anthropomorphised cats must include  this important ancestor. Plus his cartoons are available for watching at the Library for the Performing Arts!
Garfield - Garfield’s not quite like other cats, sending kittens to Abu Dhabi and eating lasagna… but he’s still a cat! See for yourself and check out one of his books at your local library.
The Cat in the Hat - Although this Seuss classic has been translated into many different languages, that doesn’t change the fact that he’s a cat, a somewhat troublesome cat who talks, but still… a cat.
Koko and Yum Yum - the stars of Lillian Jackson Braun’s profilic mystery series. Cats all the same, with Koko exhibiting a profound sixth sense.
We could go on and on with Heathcliff, Beatrix Potter’s Tom Kitten, and many more… but who are some of your favorite cats?

Catzilla

A PC Demo / PC benchmark / animation of a monstrous cat destroying a city, put together by the Plastic Demoscene Group - worth a watch:

Catzilla from Plastic Demoscene Group on Vimeo.

Catzilla is our latest project to date. It’s a realtime PC benchmark that will get all the juices from your PC.
Finally we had some time to make a proper demo. It was made with a nice collaboration with Platige Image.
We did the code, they did the art. The music was made exclusively by Bent ‘subsquare’ Stamnes.
Thanks for watching!

Stirrup vessel in the form of a feline
Moche culture - Peru, north coast 100-800 AD
100-800 AD, ceramic, 21.7 (h) x 22.6 (w) x 12.9 (d) cmMuseo Larco, LimaPhotograph: Museo Larco
All Peruvian cultures revered felines, although the species varied according to region. Most common was the jaguar, the largest South American cat, identified by its spots. The Moche, however, depicted pumas and smaller felines such as ocelots, margays, Pampas cats, jaguarondis. These animals display the hunting prowess, poise, stealth and aggression, all qualities that were valued by Moche warriors. Symbolically, cats were associated with leaders, so the tombs of the elite tombs were filled with feline imagery.

Sombrero-wearing Mexican kitties ride into my town whooping and hollering and firing their rifles y pistoleros in the air? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

I’m Mexican and I can vouch for this
