    Yay, tabbies!

  10. Tony James says:

    Defintely a 10.0 on the International Olympic Pretzel Kitten-Rating Scale – key areas that the judges look for:
    1. No apparent spine (overall angle greater than 90 degrees) – this little guy is attempting the whole 270, something we didn’t see before the 1980 Moscow games.
    2. Owlitude (head bent/neck twisted at severe angle to “spine”)
    3. Front feets crossed over back feets
    4. Tail all up in face

    KITTEH!

  11. *Quickly dials port-a-snorg only to find the number busy* DERN IT! *Looks around at her pudgy non-putting-up-with-snorgle kitties.

    T_T

    Seriously though, my god, the cuteness! The smile, the back FEET! The teeeeny teeeeeny tip of the TAIL!

  30. Lady_Douji says:

    I’ll give it a solid 10, extra points for the pretty pretty stripes

  31. Tippyrider says:

    The FEET! Honestly, I spent about 5 minutes just staring at the feet, melting.

  32. AuntieMame says:

    9.9, with a tenth of a point off just because it makes my neck hurt to watch.

    Other than that, however, it sure is a pretteh kitteh!

    (LOL at “tail all up in face”!)

  33. If this was my kitten, I would be standing over it desperately trying not to pick it up and hug it. My cat hates it when I do that. But it’s so haaaaaaarrrrd to resist.

  34. soft pretty bendy smooshy stripey little cat! so happy to see this today. those feet, OMG.

  35. hrh.squeak says:

    Amy – I could never resist your Oscar either! Extra points to him for the hidden tail curlup. What a relaxed, happy sweetie!! And R. Danette, what a beautiful baby kitteh of stripaliciousness!
    ***poit*****

  36. crazy stripitude.

  37. Perfect end to the week!

    I want the kitteh!

  38. Oh I’m gonna cry I want a kitty so baaaaaaaaaaaad

  39. Awwww!!! I think my heart just melted. What a darling wittle baby. Wanna reach over and scratch the tip of the chin, causing said kitten to stretch and expose more belly on which to kiss on! All together now: AWWWWWWWWW!!!!

  40. Kitteh.

    Kitteh?

    KITTEH!!!!!11!!

  41. …easeh, Zombeh.

  42. Kitten!!!! *makes squeeks of joy*

    I want to cuddle the little kitten, and petting the screen is just not cuttin’ it… :(

  43. awwwwwwwwwwwscar!

    Amy, I’m sorry- she is *clearly* Miki’s long lost sister: http://www.flickr.com/photos/97801341@N00/173428919/in/photostream/

  45. Laurie C says:

    At the boxcar cat feral colony I’m trying to look after, this morning I saw five five-week old kittens bumbling about. And two more slightly older. A veritable cornucopia of kittens. Too bad they scatter when I come close enough to grab them.

  46. A little smile, too!!!

  47. “boxcar cat feral colony”
    …wha huh??? ‘Splain please? (Photos?)

  48. Laurie C says:

    A feral colony, living under some boxcars that have been converted into a restaurant. I’ve counted 18 different cats under there now, NOT counting two litters yet unseen that were born this week. I bring food and water and hope to trap-neuter-release some of them this summer, and maybe rescue some kittens for adoption.

    Photos on my home computer. Will post later.

  49. Well holy crap, LC… and giant kudos to you. Looking forward to pix & updates.

    Here, I’ve been using this for some of my photo uploading, if you don’t have some service already:

    http://allyoucanupload.webshots.com/

    It’s free, and it’s easy. Just don’t forget to copy-and-paste (and label, and save) the auto-generated URLs once you’re done uploading.

    (I have no affiliation w/Webshots)

  50. Laurie C says:

    I don’t even have a digital camera, I’m that much of a Luddite. Got my analog pix scanned, and a friend took some digitally. We’re gonna get more pix tonight. I’ve never trapped before, but am getting advice from a cat rescue group. So this will be an adventure.

  51. This really is just what I needed today. :)

  52. L.C.- you are my hero, some day i want to find boxcar kittehs and take care of them….just like you!
    amy- oscar is sooooo cute!

    oh, and this kitteh better be on the port-a-snorg menue, otherwise i am getting a laywer for false advertising! *runs over to yellow pages*

  53. Yay for LC! I’m so glad you take care of the boxcar kitties.

  54. I have one of this amazing creatures near my left hand… and it’s purrrs :)

  55. rebekah says:

    port-a-snorg! sign me up. sigh…

  56. Kris, in New England says:

    OMG, people, the paws. PET FEET! PAW PADS! Just. Can’t. Stand. It. Anymore.

    And the little baby is smiling for the love of god…

    *sigh*

  57. yep, the feet are killin’!

  58. Don’t forget prosh pink ear skin.

  59. oh so cute!

  60. LC, thank you for looking after the kittehs. Are you in New England by any chance?

  61. LC – good luck on your new adventure. Kittehs are lucky to have a friend like you. Stripey sleepy cat – awwwwwww.

  62. OMG, I DID need this today!

  63. jenni joon says:

    DOH! I leave this site for FOUR hours.. just FOUR hours mind you, and I come back to a virtual *maelstrom* of cuteness! Now what, pray tell, is a body to do? I can’t work. I can’t IM. I’m a driveling idiot from all this cuteness. Nice. Real NICE.
    :)

  64. …a body could go home a little early. Friday, y’know.
    Not that *I’d* do that. Just sayin’.

  65. StormCat says:

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I can actually hear this little guy snoring!!!

    I have two kitties that snore, and it’s anerable to hear!!!

  66. THIS KITTEN GETS THE FULL 10!!

  67. shanchan says:

    Definite nominee for the next CO t-shirt. Speaking of- any idea when the next one will be up on glarkware?

  68. Brak_Silverbone says:

    How can anyone look at this photo and not smile?

  69. catsinabottle says:
  70. Isn’t this a Trifecta? I see rules #20, #19, #12, #2 and #1, to say nothing of sleepy tail-self-snorgle, furr depth and texture, stripey smiley mug and nice blanket. There’s even a subtle eyes-at-nose-level element. Its just too dangerous for words, this one.

  71. kittikin says:

    Rule of cuteness #22: Happy fuzzy smiles!

    Long live the cuteness!

  72. I do not see this image posted on the Trifecta page.

  73. Waaay….toooo…much….cuuute….

    BOOOOM!

  74. I don’t want to alarm anyone, but Cute Tracker is down!

  75. Today’s *bunnies* belong in the Trifecta section, methinks… And this kitty’s darned close.

  76. This baby kitten is definetely a 10!!! I have never posted a snorgle before, but snorgle I must. LOVE HER LOVE HER LOVE HER! I want to nibble her little tail…too too cute! xoxoxo

  77. evangeline says:

    A message for Tracey: Unless you are allergic go to a shelter and rescue a cat tomorrow!

    Lovely blissed out kitty!

  78. Laurie C says:

    jaypo, I’m in Toronto, not New England.
    I’ll take kudos re boxcar cats when I’ve managed to do more than just feed and take a census of them. Many more pix taken early this evening. I’ll try to do something this weekend to get them where y’all can see them online. Too tie-tie now.

  79. something about seeing a kitten sleeping so peacefully makes me want to wake him up!

  80. Hey, does the email address still work? I’ve been sending emails to cuteoverload@gmail.com but they keep bouncing back!

  81. I’m not really fond of cats, but when I saw this…damn cute!

  82. Svenster says:

    TJ: #1; LOL, Cheese doodle posture indeed!
    But…
    It can only be a 9.9, I’m afraid. The last 0.1 points can be earned only by being MY cat.

    Please come and live with me, kitteh. I do think you’re 10.0 material. :D

  83. Is anyone else trying to hug their monitor?

  84. …is this now our *fourth* Michelle/Michele here?
    (Hi!)

  85. r kelly says:

    yep, a 10. it’s purrrfect.

  86. Everyone – get out your hare guitars, I know you have them:

    Nobody gonna take my cat
    It’s curled up oh so round
    Nobody gonna take my cat
    A cuter tabbie can’t be found
    Oooh it’s a purring machine
    Sheds on everything
    Got a smiling face,
    big velvet paws
    And everything

    I love it and I feed it
    Say ‘Squee!’ to it yeah
    It keeps me sane
    I hold it so tight
    My cat’s a CO star

  87. Not really a cat fan, but a great creative pics.

    I love great pics and have them on my site, terrific beach and mountain creek scenes, altho my site is about relief of back, neck and shoulder pain, symptoms of arthritis, sciatica.

    Please check it out.

  88. Mellimeldisiel says:

    Oh m’gawd. So damn cute!

    *brain explodes*

    A trifecta, you think? Let’s see…

    #20 Paw curl (sorta, see back paw)
    #19 Show paw pads
    #6 Mimic humans (I do that!)
    #2 Look helpless (I think so anyway)

    It’s GOLD, people!

  89. Hi!
    I think that cat are really cute and I wondered if I can use the picture on a website where you can have a own stable and animals. Hope you answer quickly :)
