Cats Around the World
In the spirit of those sites that show stuffed toys or real pets on vacation in different places, there's the Cats Around the World site. Only I don't think these cats actually went anywhere.

The best section is undoubtedly the recipes, which include how to make sausage and cheese strata, mock chicken sour cream enchiladas, and fanciful fruit pizza. Yum!
