Cute Overload :D
…is the name of this submission. A FABULOUS name. Look at lil’ Noodle, and his look-alike salt shaker. [Pulling on string] "Mrrrrrrrrrgggghe!" No wonder she needs BandAids!
Ears back, Alexis R.!
That is one scary little predator! Good thing the Band-aid is handy. (I think that’s an elastoplast for our British friends…?)
Fun Noodle Chows down.
Oh, and – KITTEH!!!
Oh, I love Noodle!
GLURK!!! Its mind numbingly cute!
When I was in the UK they called bandages “plasters”, which was really confusing when I got a papercut and was asked if I needed a plaster.
Such a fierce little one!
Chill Out Dude!
I wonder if the bathrobe provoked Noodle like the pillows provoked Mr. Miki?
That. Is. The. BEST kitten face in the world!
Auntie M. -
Kitty couldn’t help it. It robe him to it.
It amazes me everyday I say awwww. Animals are sooooo cute
“I wonder if the bathrobe provoked Noodle like the pillows provoked Mr. Miki?”
By George, you’ve got it!
VERY cute kittin.
And the “ears back” posish is *ultra*-prosh. As are the kittin toez.
“Oi, Noodle, let’s go, were late to Uni, get moving!”
I’ve had them Marinara, Alfredo, Boyardee
With butter and cheese and even some parsley
I’ve twirled them round forks
I’ve sopped them up with bread
But the Noodle I love best
Destroys bathrobes thread by thread
Looks like a wee little lion! How sweet!
You get that string! Make him need the bandage!
It’s too bad kittens don’t stay the same size their whole life.
Young mr. Noddle is going to grow up to become Big mr. Noodle – look at those paws!
“It’s too bad kittens don’t stay the same size their whole life.”
Fierce+cute+cuter cute? That might be a good rule!
Noodle the fierce attacking an intruder in his domain. Lokk at the expression on his face.-Woods Walker
lmao, the mental image of a noodle attacked some woman’s bathrobe was almost more fun. But the ginger fluffball is adorkable too.
And yes, it’s plaster. No-one says elastoplast, it goes on forever, and sounds kinda technical. I have some plasters in my bag, seeeeeee-through ones.
Noodle will take his place among the great warriors in Kitten Kingdom. I predict, tho, that he’ll hang onto that distinction by a thread. But with a face that prosh, words are simply pointless!!
MY CAT’S NAME IS NOODLE TOO!
Elastoplast reminds me of “ectoplasm” for some reason, and thus Ghostbusters.
Oh and this little Noodle is quite a cutie.
What an adorable little trouble-maker. Fierceness!
I LOVE it when kittens are all fierce and intent and FOCUSED.
In New Zealand we call them plasters too, or sometimes ‘sticking plasters’ if we want to be really specific. Cause they STICK.
eek terrible bloodthirsty predator!
yes christina, ha, very ectoplasmic.
>”or sometimes ‘sticking plasters’ if we want to be really specific. Cause they STICK.”
Unless you have to put them on your palm, or a bit of them goes round to the front of your finger, and then they flop around like strips of wet fish and do no good at all. ::glares at pathetic plaster::
I’ll take a whole bowlful puh-leeeze! (um waiter… this one’s a little hairy)
It looks to me like it’s something up the sleeve that’s got his attention. Those eyes are SO intent on his prey.
I called my little orange kitty Mufasa when he got the *fierce* face…
Re: kitten size, I have an almost 6 year old tabby who still looks like a kitten. We call her “apartment sized!” Funny thing is that when she’s in one of those moods to race madly around the apartment–usually at 2 AM–she stomps so loudly you’d swear she was twice her size and weight. I wonder if kitties know something about gravity that they aren’t telling…
I’m with the folks here who see the wide-eyed, straight-tailed single-mindedness of this little warrior. Oh, it’s ON, all right.
“And you’re next, Mister Salt Shaker!”
I’m so embarrassed…I’m sitting here at work when I clicked on the icon for my fav place…HERE!! So the Kitty pic comes up and I squeal outloud, then duck behind my monitor because I’m SURE someone was looking at me… hee hee
What a cutie!!! I too love that “fierce” face… They’re so intent and focused..without coffee, no less!!!
As for gravity, I read an article somewhere that said that Kitties collect sunlight for a specific purpose…The reason they lay in the sun is because they are collecting the Sun’s rays..they do this so that when they lay in your lap, they transfer the rays to you, thus making you have more gravitational pull, and hence making you NOT want to get up… See? That way they can lay in your lap for hours and there isn’t anything you can do about it, ’cause you can’t get up with all that gravity!!!
That’s one deadly serious cat. I’m sure the evil Bathrobe Prey was completely vanquished. Kudos to brave Mr. Noodle.
Eye of the Tigerrrrrr! Ferocious expression, love it love it.
noodle does look like a little lion. those eyeballs are schweet!
(to be said in nasally, slightly bored tone of all narrators of science films we saw as kids in the 70s) “Here we see the predatory kitten, fresh from the kill of a bathrobe caught unawares. Kittens will often pounce unexpectedly on their helpless prey, bringing them down with one tiny tooth.”
noodle you are PSYCHO!
Funny ickle tigger kitteh!
Ooooooh, he’s trying so hard to bring down the bathrobe, his eyes are crossing! OMG!
Fiercer than the average noodle. A string so timely attacked will snap…
I have a bathrobe like that, kitty-groomed and tooth-snared!
“i fot i wuz tuff, but now my toof is sthtuck! whooooooooa!”
Stormcat, I think you’re right!
Have you ever heard of the Buttered Cat Theory.
1) When dropped, buttered toast “always” lands butter-side down.
2) Cats “always” land on their feet.
3) Therefore, theoretically (er…Theo Retically?), if you can bind a cat’s feet to the top of buttered toast and temporarity “free” him from the confines of gravity, he will hover indefinately in midair, spinning as the “butter down/feet first” forces propel each other.
My cat is ‘apartment sized’ she hasn’t grown since she was about 6 months old (now shes 1 1/2, she so small, we call her a slinky cat, she is soo shiny and sleek, which is so cute, but I liked it when she was tiny and had that gorgeous ‘kitten fuzz’ just like perfect little noodle here… awww…
I’m flipping it around in my head — Look, she’s extracted an entire bathrobe out of that tiny kitten. One last thread to go!
haha laurie! now i imagine a sweatshop full of cute little kittens, manufacturing bathrobes… poor kitties!
“…and welcome back to Kitten-Fishin’ here on the Outdoor Life Network. If you’ve just joined us, we’re here with Billy-Bob MacGruder who’s just landed Noodle, a 6-month old Marmalade. Remember, folks, that the rules of kitten-fishin’ at this level are very strict – competitors can only use line made from dressing gowns, and kittens under 10lb are covered by the Kitten-Fishin’ Association’s Catch-Snorgle-Release rules…”
is there a ‘home dentistry’ thing going on here
So very fierce! Grrrrr!
Tony J–HAHAHAA HAAA!! You’re *grrrrreeaaaat* [said in the voice of another famous Tony]
I want more puppy pictures!
“I’M WINNING I’M WINNING!”
Love the salt shaker!
I love the buggy eyes and little flat “moth ears”!
“Kitten Fishing” LOL. You can imagine his distress at being unwillingly reeled in just by the look on his face…
sometimes I think the comments are better than the pictures…
Leilani – thank you for the phrase “moth ears”. That’s a good one.
Ooooh, my goodness, Noodle is one of the coolest lion-faced kitties I’ve ever seen. Rawwrr noodle!
Good one, TJ.
My son runs around the house dragging an extra long shoe lace for LeKitteh to chase. We call it Trollin’for Kitties!
i, too, have an ‘apartment size’ kitty, except now that she’s getting older (7 years old!) she’s now expanding out, instead of the standard up. So now she’s cute and round!
we called them plasters around my house too (except we’re french canadian.. ”merde! j’m'ai fait mal! passe moi un plaster!’ ) we’re special that way
Yay, petit français plasters! Fantastique!
“Hmm… I wonder if I pull _really hard_ if mom will have to go hide in the shower again so I can continue my dasterdly deeds”
me pardonner, le petit canadien-français plasters.
pheral: LOL! awesome.
What a gorgeously fierce little fluffball Noodle is!
Makes me miss all of the psycho orangekitties of my past, he does.
TJ: You landed one! Superb!
My first thought on seeing this pic was: “So *that’s* what they look like when you put their tails in an electric socket!” Noodle is sizzlin’–but in a good way.
There must be a tons of cats named Noodle … mine is as well, because of her tendency to kind of sprawl on the couch like a wet noodle.
We had a “noodle” we named Sketti, because it was long like spaghetti.
On top of Sketti,
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball,
When somebody sneezed…
Noodle! Rhymes with Cheese Doodle! Maybe I need a tiny orange kitten to name “Oodle” to complete the holy trinity of marmalade adorability?
Oodles of Noodle Doodles?
I wonder what grown-up Cheese Doodle looks like – he must be a big guy by now… sigh.
“Oodles of Noodle Doodles?”
great. now I’m hungry.
oddles of noodles, cheesy doddles, noodle macaroni, marmalade doddles, marmie kitten casserole…ummm. better scratch the last two. make me sound delirious.
instead of “Kookoo for Cocoa Puffs”, “”Krazy for Kitteh Kittens”
Ms Collison, ma’am – I can report that Cheez Doooooooodle was bonsai’d in order that he would remain that small and cute for ever and ever and ever, as an example of how science can be used for good.
Nah – I can’t get the original (one and only) Cheesedoodle to come up via his/her name in the search engine, but suffice it to say that said kittin had a lean, unbonsai’d look…
If any kitten should be, Cheesedoodle should be.
Here – http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/images/mike_f_cheesedoodle.jpg
Noodle is indeed a fab name – our Noodle is six years old. He’s orange, too, thought his eyes are a lovely lemon yellow.
Pull kitty, pull!
….aaaaand here’s the original “Cheesedoodle Goes Online” post:
(He’s one of the Threebert understudies, of course!)
I bet Cheesedoodle is slightly larger but still very fuzzy. I bet he sleeps a lot and has a pleasant disposition.
Oodles of Noodle Doodles?
I wish! Awww…can you picture it? Cuz I really, really can.
awwwww i love how the eyes are almost crossed in concentration. I am betting if the string was not in the mouf then his tongue would be sticking out like a three years old’s who is learning to tie his or her shoe.
He looks a bit like Puss in Boots from Shrek 2… a bit.
Actually, I don’t wish kittens would stay kittens. I’m counting the days until my kitten is finally out of kittenhood and STOPS DESTROYING EVERYTHING AND RACING AROUND THE BED LIKE IT’S A NASCAR TRACK AT 5:45 AM!!!!
But I loves it to death anyway.
Well eowyn, many expert say that domesticated animals in fact stay in their juvile state, that whay they continue to rely on their owners who serve as their surrogate parents. So my guess is that your KITTEH will become a DARN KAT but still behave like a KITTEH!
I never thought of naming a cat Noodle, however I have always wanted an orange tabby. I am going to name him Ravioli. Similar, no?
Eo2 — I can echo what Rafael says here, especially if you have smooth flooring (like hardwood).
