Cat owner put a first person camera on their collar and accidentally filled the world with delight

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a cat? To watch the world from less than a foot off the ground, seeing and hearing things humans completely miss, staring out the window for hours while contemplating one of your nine lives?

Well, thanks to one person, we need wonder no more—at least about what-they’re-seeing part.

The TikTok channel Mr. Kitters the Cat ( gives us a cat’s-eye view of the world with a camera attached to Mr. Kitters’ collar. And the result is an utterly delightful POV experience that takes us through the daily adventuring of the frisky feline as he wanders the yard.

Person gets lazy coworker to unwittingly take on more work with comically simple task descriptions

It’s frustrating to see a lazy coworker take the easy way out. Cherry-picking the easiest tasks? Not cool! This was what prompted Reddit user u/SnooBunnies7461 to teach their crafty colleague a lesson.

They explained in a now-viral post that their team works on a first-in-first-out workflow basis, tackling tasks from oldest to newest.

Pop star Jessie J writes beautiful post-baby body message that every mom deserves to hear

For many women, the simple act of feeling good in one’s body is a daily challenge. Internalized misogyny, outdated societal views and capitalism that feeds off of insecurity certainly don’t make it easy. Even truly miraculous experiences, like bringing a small human into this world, are tinged with shame, simply because the body hasn’t instantly “bounced back.”

However, sometimes we get a glimpse of what a new, more loving perspective could be. And hearing one person’s compassionate words can help us instill a new way of thinking.
