Cat vs. Metronome

A metronome has found this cat’s inner frequency, or so it seems. Another cat comes to check it out, and remains totally unperturbed… Oh, and here is a classic “Cat vs. Printer” video.

The Key Keeper

New art by James Ng (we are big fans of his steampunk-flavored work and featured him a few times before):

“The recently deceased Key Keeper and his pet cats had the responsibility of organizing all the keys and locks for the imperial dungeon. With the keeper gone, no one except his pets could pair the thousands of keys to their corresponding lock, but the feline family refused to go to work without their master. The Imperial Inventor, with permission from the court, reanimated the keeper’s skeleton with steam engines to keep the loyal pets satisfied until they find a better solution. The skeletal remains of the eldest cat was also reanimated to serve as a pack leader and a mobile key cutting machine.”
