I knead you

Tory L., class of 2006, sent in this hilarious cat kneading a puppy.
I love cat kneading….Thanks, Tory.


Sounds like it takes place in a grooming salon perhaps…



  1. Oh! I just saw this on youtube earlier today and fwded it to all my friends! It tot. belongs here!

    That puppy is so chill…

    I may never tire of this video.

  2. Thats kinda cute… that poor puppy!

  3. errrr…the dog is alive, right? I mean he doesn’t even blink.

  4. I just wanted to let everyone know this is the cutest site ever. I love all the cute animals! Keep up the good work! I love it! 🙂

  5. Awwww.

  6. same question, the dog is alive right? otherwise the video is sooooooooo cute hehe i was cracking up the entire time lol

  7. the only thing a could say about every single post: soooo cute!!!

    best regards, from Argentina!!


  8. That cat will have no one to blame from himself when the puppy hits adolescence and wants to use the cat for *ahem* special services rather than, say, a sofa pillow…..

  9. They are so cute!!!!
    Beautiful blog, I love it!!!
    Best regards from Montréal

  10. is that “kitty-porn” LOL

  11. we call cats kneading “making bicuits” 😀

  12. oh oh we call it making bread. but i clearly see that this cat is a masseuse and the doggy is hypnotized by the enya music and the lavendar oil…..

  13. Wonderful video – That sweet puppy looks so comfy. And it’s not at all unusual. My cat Bear gives his two dogs massages all the time. He has since they were puppies. They tolerate it up to a point (after a while they get restless) and he seems to just love cuddling them. I’ve never one, in 30 years, had a problem with all my critters getting along.

  14. hannahbelle, we call it “makin’ biscuits.” No G in making, very important! 🙂

  15. That must be a Swedish cat.

  16. What’s with all the cat necrophilia? First a dead ferret and now a dead dog. JK, I assume the dog isn’t dead. Probably just sedated.

    Cute kitty anyway.

  17. I love how the puppy’s eye is looking up at the cat—like “WTF?!”

  18. ooh, we call it making muffins. i love regional dialect cuteness differentiation. someone write their dissertation on this important subject, please.

  19. We used to call that behaviour “pounding dough”.

  20. That makes me miss my kitty.

    Soooo cute. X3

  21. Hello from Canada!
    We call this suckface..The kneading goes back to infancy when they are nursing.Usually a cat will do this if he is taken away from mommy too young!

  22. “…and on the white noise machine you have your choice to listen to a lapping lake, a buoy bell, a dove coo, pattering rain or, my personal favorite, a free-running circular saw…”

  23. Yup, “makin’ biscuits!” I love the look kitties get on their faces. It’s always the same. Pure bliss. Brings them back to the day when they were nursing from mom!

  24. Awwww! That kitty is OWNING that puppy. I can just hear her saying,

    “Ahh, yes. Just relax, puppy, I’m going to give your hamstrings some attention. Lotta tension here, wow, what do you do, haul bricks for a living? What’s that? More work on the deltoids? Ok, ok, just relax.”

  25. I don’t know. We had several litters of kittens at my house when I was a kid, and we never gave them away. They lived with their mothers all their lives and they all did the “kneading” thing, so I doubt it’s anything to do with being taken away from their mothers too early, just instinct when they’re really happy.

    I call it “mushing”. Like what sled dogs do. 😉

  26. cool dude dog lover says:


  27. Orange tabbies seem particularly peculiar this way. Ours does this too, and he’s no little bit, either, AND has all 20 pawhooks. Ouch ouch ouch.

    And btw it goes like this:
    Purrrrrrrrrr purrrrrrrrrrr
    knead knead knead knead knead knead

  28. Actually, my tuxedo cats used to do the same thing whenever they were comfortable and happy, just not to my dog.

  29. Oh very very cute! I showed it to my gf and she went all gushy on me! 🙂

  30. nice pics, donncha, esp the urban cork scenes and the gardener’s house:

    makes me moony about going back to oirland.

  31. Thanks Finn! Keep coming back, I post a new photo every day!

  32. Hey is is the new doggy spa treatment! Cat Massage is now the latest puppy treat. It will relax those tiered puppy muscles from all that hyper running around and will create a zen like state for hours!

  33. That’s weird!
