1. Project of the Day—Thanks to the internet, cats are more popular than they have ever been before. Now, instead of just getting one at the pound or the farm or the street or whatever and then taking care of it in the privacy of your own home for a number of years, you can turn your cat into a legit celebrity that people will come and stare at for hours. What’s up with that? It is a phenomenon, and Catstarter wants to find out why and how it happened in a book they’re putting together, called Cat Is Art Spelled Wrong.

  2. See, when it comes to the number of people pledging to Team Dog versus Team Cat projects, the difference isn’t huge — dogs are up by just under 20%, whether you’re counting overall pledges or unique backers. But when it comes to the number of projects they were supporting, and the amount of money pledged, the difference is much bigger — around 60%. As a whole, Team Dog backers would seem to be spread more thinly across a larger number of projects, getting more ideas funded, while Team Cat backers are clustered around a smaller number of projects, with higher pledge counts and success rates.

    —Dogs vs. Cats: we analyzed the way that some cat- and dog-related statistics play out on Kickstarter. Spoiler alert: there’s no definitive answer.

  3. Did you know we have a #Cats tag? There, you’ll find projects like CAT-SCANS, an art book of photos of cats standing on flatbed scanners, but that’s not all! You just might find a furry feline surprise in some of these projects’ videos. (Screenshot above from the nifty Sci-Fi film project “The Immortal Edward Lumley.”)
Of course, if you’re not a fan of cats, there’s always CatZapper, which endeavors to be the Unbaby.me for cats. It’s cool if you back this project; we won’t cry… too much.

  4. Psst… it’s almost October! And projects are starting to get appropriately spooky. Take The Magician’s Cat, a children’s book about a bashful black cat who hides his shyness using magician’s tricks. Based on a story that author Monica Knighton wrote in high school, her finished publication will be freely available to all on the internet, but only backers can get exclusive kitty prints and art pendants.
