Jubbling Break: Hilarious Menswear Dog Fashion Blog Is Fido Suavé.

Menswear Dog Fashion BlogMenswear Dog is a new blog featuring a 3-year-old Shiba Inu who dresses better than I ever have. Hopefully the creator of Menswear Dog has a kid or ventriloquist dummy that can Jubblingly share the outfits.

Why Isn’t Mouse Flavored Cat Food Available?

Mouse flavored cat food?Wouldn’t it be great if cat food did come in mouse flavor? We could turn a pest, that breeds like mice, into food for our pets. My daughter asked me why mouse-flavored cat food wasn’t available and since I didn’t have a good answer, I decided to check around. The best answer I could find was from Yahoo:

“The reason [mouse-flavored cat food] isn’t available is simple: Cats are not the one buying the food. It is proven that people buy cat food according to their own image of what their cat should like. So mouse-flavored food is not as appetizing as chicken or beef.”

I guess it’s our fault that mouse-flavored cat food isn’t available but hopefully that will change. Purina, Iams – if you’re considering adding country mouse flavor to your cat food lineup, shoot me an email and I’ll gladly test it out for you. Another bonus: mouse flavored cat food could be cross-promoted with a pet’s edition of Eating the Enemy.

Update: Just stumbled upon this in Grist: “Your cat is a massive environmental hazard.” I think the mouse crusaders are behind the article.


Cat Rides Under A Train For 1700 Miles. Travels On Intercity Train 85 Times Further Than Average American.

Polly the train riding cat.Polly the cat took a 1700 mile trip in the underbelly of an intercity train in the UK. From This is Plymouth:

“A missing Plymouth cat belonging to a retired train driver has been rescued from an inter-city train – after stowing away in the undercarriage for 1,700 miles.

Polly the tabby, who had a badly-broken leg, is thought to have climbed on board the high speed express near her home in Plymouth. She then spent two days trapped under the front carriage as the train thundered between the West Country, London and South Wales.

The two-year-old was discovered when train manager Emily Mahoney-Smith heard her miaowing when the train stopped briefly on its way to Cornwall.”

Polly did lose a leg out of the deal but thanks to her microchip, she will be reunited with her family in Plymouth.

Per capita, Americans travel 20 miles/per year on intercity trains so Polly basically kicked our collective non-train riding butts times 85 in just two days. Yes, she lost a leg but that’s because she made her trip riding under an intercity train. Imagine how far Polly could’ve gone on the train if she had her own seat.

Of all the benefits we get from owning a dog, knitting a sweater out of their normally thrown out sheddings is hard to beat. The dog hair sweater story is an old one but it’s worth bringing back for its Jubbling awesomeness. Erwan Fichou photographed the proud dog hair sweater wearers with their matching dog, hair source.

Knitting With Dog Hair bookIf you own a dog with long hair and you want to join the dog hair sweater club, take the first step and order a used copy of the book “Knitting With Dog Hair.” Make the dog hair sweater knitting project a post-New Year’s New Year’s resolution because when it’s done, your dog will surely love having you as a twin bro.

Jubbling Or Not: Charles Dickens’ Cat Paw Letter Opener.

Charles Dickens cat paw letter openerShould we put our dead pets to good use? Gizmodo posted an article about how Charles Dickens had his cat “Bob” taxidermied and used one of Bob’s paws as a handle for a letter opener. Jubbling or not? We probably need to classify the cat paw letter opener as early Victorian era Jubbling. [Gizmodo]


Chuo Systems Corporation’s $475 Remoca: Watch Your Dog Eat, Drink And Hump Things While You’re At Work.

Remoca pet food dish with panning camera.Cat owners don’t fret – you too can buy the unnecessary $475 Remoca panning camera on a food, treat and water dish system. We have 2 cats and we love them but buying a Remoca and watching them eat, drink and clean their junk remotely on a mobile device would put me at an 11 on the “I need to get a life” scale. I predict the people that are into the kinky role-play stuff are going to be all over the Remoca – still not Jubbling though. [Rocket News]
