This is a sand cat, aka “sand dune” cat, aka “any excuse to make a Dune reference” cat, which had become extinct in Israel, but was recently bred in captivity. We will treat you to more details and another picture after the jump.

Via Neatorama:

After 63 days of gestation, a rare Sand Cat Kitten was born at Israel’s Zoological Center Tel Aviv Ramat Gan – Safari. Once plentiful in numbers in the dunes of Israel, the Sand Cat has become extinct in the region. This is Safari Zoo’s first successful Sand Cat birth and it is hoped this kitten will join Israel’s Sand Cat Breeding Program in order to help reintroduce the species into the wild.

Whew! That was adorable! Okay, moving on.

“Everyone likes Fry no matter what he does … He takes his clothes off in this film, and people seem to like that too.”

And finally, Julianne Moore is recreating famous ladies in paintings with photographer Peter Lindbergh for Harper’s Bazaar. We will pretty much follow her anywhere, especially if she’s doing what those of us in the geek realm call “cosplay.” (at Design You Trust)
