Kitty cats. They rule the internet and, whether we realize it or not, pretty much the world too. Ever noticed how cats sometimes stake out the coolest spots in a city? This new feature—Travel Cat—focuses on exactly that. Submit a photo to be featured by tweeting or Instagramming it to us (details below).

Travel Cat spotted in: Mykonos, Greece.

This week's Travel Cat comes from Instagrammer @bollozos, who spotted this tired orange cat atop one of the whitewashed walls that so typify the Greek island. He totally needs to send a postcard to these cats.

Mykonos Pelican Mystery Update: Not What We Wanted To Hear

Where: Mykonos

A while back we asked the series of tubes to please refute the rumors we heard about the demise of the legendary Mykonos pelican Petros I.

Sadly, we recently received an email tip from the Greeks that does not disprove the urban myth, as a matter of fact it corroborates it:

In reply to your blog article about the Myconos pelican Petros I that is sadly true. The sexual offender and bird lover was allegedly either a drunk German tourist OR an Egyptian sailor who was caught, charged, and convicted after his confession.

Apparently we can add drunk German tourists and Egyptian sailors to the list of bird fuckers.

At least the sheep shaggers weren't responsible.
