What's Right Meow: Meet the Internet's Most Famous Kitty, Pusheen the Cat
Move over, Boo: There's a new adorable pet in town who has taken the internet by storm. Enter Pusheen, the chubby, tubby grey tabby who has warmed hearts and tickled funny bones of millons worldwide with an animated webcomic series that depicts her life and dreams. With over 5.5 million Facebook fans, Pusheen may be a star, but like most cats is lazy and loves to eat. Her name stems from the Irish word for kitten, which was given to the cat after she was adopted from a shelter. Now that she has a more comfortable life, she enjoys surfing the web and playing dress-up—and has all her nine lives left.
Pusheen recently made the leap from digital to print in her first comic collection I Am Pusheen the Cat, which fills you in on all the basics about the kitty and features the most popular stories from her Tumblr and Facebook pages. What's better yet, is that you can now wear stylish items covered in Pusheen. Chicago-based online boutique Hey Chickadee has collaborated with the Pusheen creators, artists Clare Belton and Andrew Duff, on a line of unique, limited-edition products featuring the lovable cat. Including hoodies, t-shirts, jewelry, plush toys, phone charms, tights, and more, you can now take the naughty-but-nice furball with you wherever you go. How purrfect!
