Cute Overload :D
Look it up in the dictionary and you will see this YOUTUBE MOVIE PLAYING IN THE PAGE!
[Then super-nose twitching, then lying pretty still.]
EEEEE to the Seeeeee, how I love theeeeeee!
oh-em-gee THIS IS SERIOUS FLOPPITUDE! TOO CUTE! *flops to death* and am i the first comment up? too good to be true..
You might wanna check his pulse! :o)
i love the nose twitching and the subtle “chewing” movements of his mouth :) cute cute… i just wannt pick him up and SNORGLE!!!!
awwww…this makes me miss my li’l Patsy-poo so much….
Such a happy bunny!
lmao but its not being licked?!
I loves the ear floppage!!!
After watching that video about a dozen times, I just KNOW I’m going to be distracted all day, wondering what “Vic’s SureStart” and “Mattel Foods Barbecue Sauce” are.
1… 2… 3…. FLOP!
My cat does that so hard you can hear her shoulder bones hit the hardwood.
I am soooooooooo sad…
I can never view any of teh cute videos….
Those nose convulsions are hilarious to me!
That’s too bad, You Guys R Silly. Luckily for you, here’s Not That Mike’s Not That Descriptive Video Service, with a summary of the action:
“OK, there’s this bunny on the floor, and the TV is playing in the background — it sounds like either Masterpiece Theater or CSPAN. After a moment, the bunny begins to float towards the camera, staring directly into the viewer’s eyes with a look of serenity and absolute knowledge.”
“For a few agonizing moments that seem like years, the bunny just looks at you, never moving, until your soul aches with longing. Then, rays of pure love issue forth from the bunny’s eyes, bathing you in warm joy. All of your dead relatives and pets are with you and greet you warmly, and you become calm and aware that nothing in this world can hurt you. Also, you get a million dollars.”
“Then, the bunny flops over and the TV says something about Vic’s SureStart and Mattel Foods Barbecue Sauce.”
I just want to squeeeeeeze that bun! And chew on his ears . . . just a little.
NTMTOM: thankyouverymuch. From another person who can’t watch this video, at least till she gets home tonight at a very late hour, and must suffice herself upon the Komments…*sniff*…
but where’s the puppy licking it?
on not that mike – that was the best desctiption ever !! i watched the movie too many times but and you managed to describe it perfectly :D gotta love the floppage
now i miss my bunnies aww its so fuzzeley !!
We like to refer to it as ‘floppage’. And it’s what we strive for when petting our cat.
Hey all of you bun people – never having been owned by a bun, I have questions!
Well, a question anyway.
I noticed, after the awesome floppage, the bun paused (so that we could admire the cuteness) and then appeared to rub his (her?) head on the floor.
Now, I have a cat who does a similar move – flop and rub, and I assumed that the cat was claiming the floor as his own.
Buns don’t do that, do they? Do they even have scent glands in their wee bitty faces with which they claim items?
Bunny thought process:
human’s foot? Mine!
coffee table leg? Mine!
door frame? Mine!
/Bunny thought process
fanks, people. I am here to be edumakated.
OMG I need that link NOW!
One more time, Rhea, and you’re a HeadOn commercial.
rpennefe — re the head smodging after the flooping… I do that when I snuggle into my pillow all the time — I just figured he was gettin’ all cozy and comfterbuls. (Gotta fluff up that hardwood floor a bit!) The nose twitchin’ is what gets me. Long ago in a place far away I had me lots of bunbuns and I loved to watch them noses!
Head smodging! I love it! That has become my new favorite phrase!
rpennefe: This inquiring mind also wants to know! It looked exactly like the “cheeky-rubby” that my cats like to do. I am assured by the vet that they do it to spread their happy scent everywhere in my house. (Mine! indeed) Do buns also have cheeky-rubby happy scent? Please, bun people, tell us!
Hee hee~very much enjoy video AND most excellent video description!
I lurve you!
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
Your vivid explanation of the video was marvelous…I felt myself pulled into the
and am now laying here rolling around in my crisp wonderful $millions$…
*Smooches*to*you* for your thoughtfullness towards us videologically impaired peeps…
(and, folks, if you want to play that video over and over and over, you can grab the video with youtube-dl (http://www.arrakis.es/~rggi3/youtube-dl/) :)
rpennefe, rabbits are subtle but they still lay claim. They have a whozywatsit under their chin. They sort of incorporate the sniffing and the rubbing into one deft maneuver…Some people don’t even realize they’ve been marked. “One quick swipe and you’re mine! Bwahahahaha!”
Somebody shot that bunny!
I love it when Cinnamon does this! We fostered a chinchilla rex for awhile that would do that constantly and in public. When I worked at a wild bird feed store, I would take her with me to run around. One day she did a flop like that while I was showing her to a customer. The customer freaked and screamed “Oh No! Did she have a heart attack??” Of course that woke the rabbit up, who disapproved of such a reaction to her relaxing flop.
Love those crazy bunnies!
I was mesmerized by the nose-twitching. Can a bun use its nose to indicate contentment? I honestly think this one did.
NTMTOM: I collapse in a fit of giggles…at work.

Hi Birdchick! Twin Cities representin’. Do you & Zelda cross paths? Just curious…
Squee!!!! The twitchitudinous floppage!
Not That Mike The Other Mike, first the awesome video play by play, and then the hysterical Bunny Head-On commercial! Genius!!! Will you be my Schmoopie?
Am I the only one who worries that that bun had a heart attack? I mean, he gets pretty still there at the end…
It does look a bit like death throes, but it’s totally not. They do it all the time — s’okay. After the first violent fit of relaxation you get kind of used to it.
the nose twitchage reminds me of the way my cats twitch when they’re dreaming…
dreamin’ of chasin’ birdies and mousies I’m sure!
No, PuppyMomma, that’s not a heart attack – that’s a very relaxed, happy bun! We call the whole routine “dead bunny” in my house, because some of the buns throw themselves down so hard, and then lie there like they’re, well, dead. Only lasts a few seconds though, especially if they hear the “veggie puffs” box!
WR, “violent fit of relaxation” is my new favourite phrase of all times. Plus it would make a great name for a rock band.
Cheryl: You can only be my schmoopie if you bring me Vic’s SureStart, and fourteen gallons of Mattel Foods Barbecue Sauce!
Then, you must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest, with … A HERRING!
Harshing Mellow Alert—
Today’s paper reported that 150 unwanted dogs and cats are being dumped in Phoenix area shelters A DAY! Some from families, others from breeders who can’t sell all of their wares. There are more than can possibly be adopted. Please, please, PLEASE spay and neuter!!!! I know I’m preaching to the choir here, so thanks to all of you who do so much for the shelter babehs.
I’m pretty sure it’s a “Bic SureStart”- aka a type of barbecue lighter.
Also- hee hee! I can just imagine the little “whump” noise the bunny must have made.
Yeah, I was scared the first time I saw it happen. My friend and I thought we would have a bunny date with our two bunnies (neutered/spayed) and her bunny did that, I had never seen it before. Then later that week my bunny started to do that. He is such a copycat.
As for the nose twitching, yes you sometimes can tell the mood by how fast their noses are going. But you really have to know your bunny to tell if it is a normal nose twitch or not.
OMGosh – Birdchick of the Disapproving Rabbits is here! I bet I could quote the captions on your bunny pages from memory…
Nah peeps, this bun is none other than Deb Carlos’ own Cakes, who was featured here
(And yes, to add to the chorus: bunnies chin things. And bunnies love to flop when they’re happy.)
Thank you, Dragonrose!
And, from another source, I’ve learned that the name of the other product is not “Mattel Foods Barbecue Sauce,” but in fact “Parker Brothers Foods Barbecue Sauce.”
My cat does the
when she lays down to sleep next to me each night!
She gets as close as possible to me (my face or my chest) and is kneading like
one minute, and then
crashes down on her side next to/on top of me the next!!!
Then she purrs and smiles, and I purr and smiles, and everybody is purry and smiley and smooshed on top of each other after the floppage…
What am I supposed to use to bbq my Barbie then, NTVTOV? That one is clearly for Mr. Boddy.
rofl my cat flopped on cue today !!! i pointed my hand at him shaped as a gun and went POW ! just becasue he was looking kinda confused at me lol – he flopped straight over , rolled onto his back with his feet in the air — i – love – my – cat !!!
Arbed — I have no clue what you’re talking about.
Perhaps I should study.

Ehehehehe… I love the aminal floppage!
ALL of my animals do some form of it.
My older dog… she does a bodyslam flop onto our couches.
Our younger dog is just lazy and flops all the time.
Older cat does it sometimes when she’s in an extra lazy mood. Helps that she’s uber stubby too.
And our younger kitty… He’s flop master. When there’s danger? He just flops where he stands :P
OMG, I am sooooo overwhelmed with cute-i-tude1!!! You just want to reach into the screen and stroke that furry soft pile of fluff!!!! If you don’t go awwwwwwww after watching this, you need a snuggle to readjust your awwwwwness.
My guinea pig does the flop thing too! It’s soooo cute
I want to squish him and knead him like dough, post-violent fittage!
Sweet bunny, of course, and muy cute. But I have to admit… to a slightly groggy and sleep-deprived physician, the whole episode looks remarkably like a seizure… Bun falls to ground and twitches madly!!!
I’m fine now…
ps to Theo: Mattel makes Barbie. Parker Bros. makes Clue. The dead guy in Clue is Mr. Boddy. And now NTCTOC has hit arbed on the head with a candlestick in the office.
Since I’ve seen other people talk about their cat floppage, I can finally admit it. When my alarm goes off in the morning, my Elvis kitty comes over to me and flops right down into spooning position. I rub his belly, he purrs as loud as a lawnmower. And I wonder why I’m often in a rush to get to work…
There’s a cat I know of, named Frieda. When she sees my boyfriend and I, she’ll make her approach, meowing demandingly – and on finding a suitable patch of sidewalk, grass, or whatever seems flop-worthy, down she’ll flop, with an audible grunt. Frieda’s floofy – and when a floof flops there’s plenty of detrius that has to be manicured out of the fur, which takes up valueable petting time.
When Frieda gets bored with us, this will be expressed with a mild (or not so mild) kronche of the hand that happens to be doing the petting at the time.
OMG — Joy: — a GUINEA PIG doing the
would be the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!
And then those wee nubby little feetsies would be sticking straight out on the side!!!
Your kitteh is doing that ON PURPOSE!!!
He is using his Jedi Mind Tricks to get you to forget about that pesky old alarm clock, and just
and oooooooze on back to sleep with him. . .
I’ll have to take more experienced Cuteologists’ word for it that the bunny is experiencing a state of heightened relaxation and not a seizure.
I did get that, Miss Scarlett. No need to smack me over the head with a lead pipe. In the kitchen.
NTYGRSTOYGRS (how fun to type was that! Whee!)
Yes, he has all sorts of tricks like that. He has the “No, don’t go running, pick me up and carry me around like a baby” Beggy Meow & Desperate Reach and the “Come lie on the couch and read a book so I can lounge on your belly” Strategic Sit By The Sofa and Look Forlorn trick.
They work every time. I’m such a softie.
I think you read Elvis’s mind perfectly. AmyH should get a job that starts later as to better adjust to Elvis’s schedule… 8-)
Ohmigod, that’s debcarlos’ bunny, of insta-pants fame! http://flickr.com/photos/hellogirlfriend/144591150/
That was mighty fine reporting there. I can watch the video, but obviously not the same one as you did! I want to know what you are sprinkling on your Cheerios!
And btw, it’s no longer called a herring. It’s now called Ickyickybutangzooboing. : ) neee!
Elvis agrees with you completely, mariser. If he were a person, he’d be so co-dependent I wouldn’t be able to stand him. But he’s handsome, doesn’t talk and never complains about my absence. (Insert ideal boyfriend qualities joke here.)
Awwww, I can’t wait till my bunny is that big ^___^
Hehe, I love when mine does that to lay down… Maybe it’s the only way bunnies know how to lay on their sides??
NTTTOOFC – I’m so freakin’ stoopid. I just saw your last comment, went back and read your previous one and smacked my own damn self with a water bottle. Writing reports takes all my *real* thinking, dadgummit.
/hands Teho the Butterscotch Puddin’ o’ Apology….. and a spoon
AmyH – does Elvis stamp one of his front paws on the floor and give you “the look” if he isn’t getting something he wants? My mini white haired (hared!) Rorie did.
Danielle – Elvis just shrugs and then sits on the floor with his back to me. If I feel too guilty, I get out his brush and all is forgiven. So really, I guess he pretty much always gets his way.
Oh, there’s also the “I’m going to sit here on the other side of the couch so all you see is my disapproving eyes as you leave the house” Stare. That one kills me!
NTMTOM, how am i possibly going to get through heightened airport security with all that BBQ sauce, a lighter AND a herring?? must think, think!!!! wait for me, schmoopie-to-be!!!
Ickyickybutangzooboing — he’s sprinkling RAINBOWS!
Don’t overeat, though…
The heightened relaxation plus the happy nose I like to call ‘olfaction satisfaction’.
Our friend has a big, BIG floofy marmie-boy who THROWS himself to the ground like this, and the floor actually shakes. We call it “THUD” or “catquake”.
Wish me luck — later this afternoon I have to stuff TK (the world’s squirmiest kitten) into the carrier and take him to the Bad Place for his booster shots. HRT will be sooo pissed off when I bring him right back.
You’re lucky, you guys r silly. Your kitteh – it appears – considers bed time to be *the* time for flopping, snorglin’ and purring.
My big guy – the same one who flops and pwns the floor – waits until I’m dead asleep (actually, he generally waits until about 3:00 in the morning) and *then* decides it’s time for a snorgle. And man, does he have a set of lungs! I’ve learned enough Catish to be able to translate his power MEOW as follows:
Oh, woe is me! I am soooooo loney! If only someone would wake up and snuggle with me! Alas!
Even worse, he’s got me trained to react to his mournful cries. I immediately roll over onto my back so that he can do his twenty pound tippy-toe dance across my poor, abused body, settle down on my chest (ignoring my wheezing and gasping for air), and begin to purr.
Um, have I mentioned that he’s loud? Hand to God, this one goes to eleven.
When you explain this situation to TK, continue to use the phrase ‘booster shot’. Somehow it doesn’t sound as bad – it makes me think of the type of ejector seat a young James Bond would have had on his Austin-Martin tri-cycle.
“HRT will be sooo pissed off when I bring him right back.”
But she’ll be *so* pleased to know where he was, don’t you think?
Thats what I call a combination move. Like my cat will do a plop, roll and squeak.
This adodybo lil’ bun is doing a flop, wiggle and chew.
That’s some hardcore floppage. I was a little concerned at first! :)
“Booster shot” is enough to still make me break out in a cold sweat, especially if it goes in the Asstin-Martin.
The one thing my kitteh (Wembley) DOES do through the night is she gets right in your face and PETS your face so you’ll wake up and cuddle her. (She’s relentless at it…) It’s adorable but annoying…
When she was a babbeh, she spent entire nights going from bed to bed (there were 4 peeps) and would try to
her whole entire little head in each person’s open/sleeping mouth…
Weird. Don’t ask me what the hell THAT was all about.
That is one SMART kitteh you have there…sounds like he just might BE a reincarnated boyfriend???
I totally agree. I think AmyH needs to make even MORE concessions in her life to pamper Elvis even more than it already sounds like she does…sheesh…Keep the kitteh *happy* fer crying out loud!
One of my two bunnies flops like that all the time, it never fails to make me laugh.
On the bunny forum I frequent it’s known as the “dead bunny flop”.
Prodding your bun to check they’re still alive is just one of the many joys of being owned by bunnies.
Once you know they’re fine you just can’t help but go “AWWWW!”
Animal friends are
What would we ever do (or ever BE?) without them???
I’ve been lurking for awhile but I haven’t posted til now.
I’ve been laughing so hard that I’ve gotten all tied up in nots.
ygrs, it would only be half a life without ‘em.
Glad this got posted – In addition to being very cute, it was also instructional. I’ve read about the “dead-bunny-flop” online, but never seen one. I adopted a rabbit last night who comes home with me this weekend, and this video will no doubt save her from some concerned poking.
My new kitten has decided that she needs to confuse me. When the alarm goes off she comes and purrs next to me so that I will pet her instead of getting out of bed. But then when I start falling back to sleep (while still petting) she bites my nose! Not hard, but still…
And a CRAPPY half at THAT!
Aw how cyoooote! I just started taking jujitsu lessons and the falls they do ar kinda like that, but they are not nearly as cute when they do it. AND theire noses DO NOT TWITCH!!!!
OMG! That looks EXACTLY like my baby, Thumper. And he just did the “dead bunny flop” too!
I thought it sounded like “Hellman’s BBQ Sauce” :)
just my 2 cents
You’re probably right, TF, but it’s just funnier to think about Mattel branching out into condiments. Talk about diversifying your product line.
TF: That explanation has the rather drab quality of being actually plausable:
Oh, and I’m suing all of you for stealing my name-change schtick. Armies of winged attorneys are being dispatched from NTMTOM World Headquarters even now.
TF, that makes too much sense — at least as far as NTMTOM is concerned. ;)
Still another hour before TK has to go. HRTortie will be doubly angry; she gets all grrr hiss at his smell, and now TK will come home smelling like The Evil Place as well.
We have always had a firm policy of not letting the cat sleep with us. I need my sleep and I wouldn’t get it with 3 AM purrage and biting and stomping around. Once many years ago we were staying at a friend’s house and in a double bed (not even queen size) we tried to smush myself, Mr. L and our 15 lb. marmie Coon. Limbs colliding everywhere!
Will they be cute armies of winged attorneys, because they should be cute, you know.

For some reason that is making me think of the flying monkeys.
Definitely not cute.
Awwww, I also have a cat who loves to flop like that when he’s happy, but his nose doesn’t twitch. What an amazing bunny!!
I vote for cute winged attornies as well! Can they be rich, too? As long as we’re being fantastical and all, we may as ask for more!

I’ll read later, for now all I have to say is….FLOP, nawm, nawm, nawm.
I think that on CO we can ask for ANYTHING our little warped hearts desire…
(I want the winged lawyers to all be wearing little maroon FEZes too!)
(don’t know why, I just do.)
Hahahaha, I had time to watch “flop” again….
But I always _liked_ the flying monkeys! Maybe not _cute_ exactly, but still…
(Especially the ones in our summer musical theater program for youth version of WoO, who do an Elvis-influenced doo-wop number, complete with red tennies and pompadour hair-dos on the leads)
Pay no attention to that cuteologist behind the curtain!
but did anybody else notice that the end of the clip, the background music says “…barbacue sauce”??
CAN THIS BE ADDRESSED, MISS MODERATOR? I hope they aren’t planning to EAT the flopping bunny!
We have a moderator now??
[rubs hands in evil anticipation of BUNNEH-CUE]
Lord. YGRS, not TGRS. Looking over my shoulder to make sure co-workers aren’t watching is beginning to tell on me. I just hope they don’t tell on me.

Angua, glad to be of service. Once, back in the college days, my friend Eric and I were eating pizza when a chunk o’pineapple slid off and landed on his, uh, groin area. We decided then and there that Crotch Pineapple would be a great band name. :)
Okay, but if the winged attorneys are rich and have fez’s, I would also like to request that they have goat-tees (and you guys can pick between facial hair and the little hoofers wearing shirts)
I love Cakes.

Anyway, catch it if you can.
/Resume floppage topic/
FLOP! Floppity flopper!
To be honest, NTMTOM, I wouldn’t exactly feel calmed by the vision of some of my dead relatives. Just the opposite. Fortunately, watching bunny flopping will always reverse any negativity.
(Insert ideal boyfriend qualities joke here.)
AmyH… is he… neutered?
BWAH HA HA.
Do you think you could package him as a “flopsicle”?
And do you think its proper to want to chew on his widdle ears? Num num num
Um, good point Sarcasta. So much I want to say, but I’m trying to keep it clean (and not personally implicating).
Short cip but long on sweet!
I think I get the mental picture AmyH. Saynomore.
Sometimes my cats are SO much nicer to snuggle with than… [clamps hand over mouth and looks sideways through squinted eyes at the husband to see if he can hear what I am thinking]
Whoo. All clear. He’s busy eating stinky vinegar potato chips and watching TV.
That rainbow spewing color spectrum is awesome!
you meant ME, but I wasn’t positive and didn’t want to
P.S. Funny thinking that there are DOZENS (?) of us sitting here LOOKING like we’re working, but we’re actually
ooooh sarcasta I know what you mean, busband is superbusy at present so I know he’s not reading comments…I mean I loathe it when he goes away on evil business trips, but at the same time, I get superdooper loads of kitteh snuggles.
and, if he is reading this, I deny all knowledge and blame the other bunnajenny, not this one.
I will have to say, though, Ms. Sarcasta, that I had a good laugh. And then “Wait, no! I mean, yes! Wait, well, I suppose as long as real human boyfriend still has, um… And then I could save money on, um… Shoot, there’s no good way to get through this one.”
I can’t leave you guys alone for a minute!
TK survived his trip to the Awful Place for more shots, and a visit to the pet store to buy him a harness. He was mos’ def Houdini — kitten shut up in a box with a “strait jacket” on. We let him walk around part of the house on a leash. When he wasn’t gnawing on the leash.
I am *REALLY* worried about HRTortie. She’s not eating hardly anything. I don’t think she’s eaten since gooshy food almost 24 hours ago. :( We have been giving her extra lovin’s but she’s still not eating. And she hasn’t even come face to face with TK, and she’s growly even at her beloved Daddy.
I knew she was going to be upset about TK, but didn’t think it was this bad. :(
Story time, somewhat relevant to my cat/boyfriend theme: I was back with the fam a couple of years ago and the sound of small children was deafening and driving me insane. I told them I loved them but I wasn’t used to so much noise as it’s just me and Elvis at home, who is really quiet. So at dinner, with everyone around, it was getting really loud and my 7-year old niece said “Everyone needs to be quiet! Aunt Amy lives alone with a cat.”
My bachelor brother advised me against taking her along on my dates.
I have a kitty not eating now, too. Different reason, though.
Sam is 16 years old and is a tuxedo cat (Sam is short for Samsonite, because she loves to be carried around). She has kidney failure. We tried dialysis for 3 weeks. She hated it and fights it. Doesn’t like getting into the car to go to the vets, and is not eating now. Hard to see her go, we’ve been together since she was 6 weeks old. Life rolls on, doesn’t it.
Don’t know how you feel about these things, but I know an awesome Animal Communicator in South Carolina. Email me and I’ll send you her info. She’s very gifted.
Wow, this may have been TEH most inspired thread ever! Forget String Theories. This is The Thread.
However, it is too late, and I am too…Yes, this Lauri…to add anything worthwhile. Thanks, Sarcasta, for being YTS! :)

“When she was a babbeh, she spent entire nights going from bed to bed (there were 4 peeps) and would try to

Weird. Don’t ask me what the hell THAT was all about.”
In response to this, I met a kitten at our SPCA (the same one as Ms. ShelleyTambo here) who probably went on in life to do this exact same thing with it’s owners. ShelleyTambo opened her mouth to compare the size after I commented how small its head was. The kitten shoved his head in! I told her she had to do it again when I had my camera out, and this time the kitten stuck its head in, licked her tongue and tried to climb in farther. We still joke that she eats kittens, and I have a priceless picture!
OMG buhtterfly we need the picture of “Kitteh in da mouf”
[looks down, then left, then right, and finally behind, counting the splats]

[returns gaze to Lauri, eyebrow cocked]
So… I guess they still haven’t fixed the accuracy on those newfangled autopudders, huh?
buhtterfly: mint maybe? I had a cat who would try to shove her whole head right into my mouth after I brushed my teeth.
Theo said way back there, “[rubs hands in evil anticipation of BUNNEH-CUE]“.. and it reminded me of a book I read as a kid called “Bunnicula”…. crazy bunneh-dracula story, but sorta cute at the same time. Anyone else remember that??
I’m Reddi with the Whipped Cream. I have a kitchen torch. Consider yourself warned and consider my brulees airbourne.
Yes, I read Bunnicula too! It’s a cute series by Deborah and James Howe (the first two titles are Bunnicula and Bunnicula Strikes Again, but I can’t remember the others). It’s told from the point of view of a dog and his cat friend. I seem to remember that baby Bunnicula sucked the juices out of tomatoes and other veggies, just like a vampire would.
Danielle, we lost a boy to kidney failure, too. We finally had to realize we were keeping him around for *us* not for his benefit and needed to let him go. We really waited about a month too long; at least 2 weeks. We finally decided to have him put to sleep on Sunday evening and so we spent all weekend letting him do whatever he wanted. The only thing he’d eat was cold cuts so we let him have at it. He played outside, got petted, other people came to say goodbye. Sigh. Well, anyway, I know exactly how you feel, and “Samsonite” is a great name!
jaypo: HRT needs all the help she can get, will email you tomorrow.
Best go check on TK and see how he’s reacting to the shots. He doesn’t have to go back to the Awful Place for 2 months, at which time he has his final shots, and gets deballed.

Also, AmyH, your family sounds like a hoot! Elvis fits right in.
(boy… two very different intertwined threads, here)
Dammit. I am all out of puddings, creams, brulees, and such-like and now for some strange reason I’m hungry for those.
“Now I’m standing…now I’m not!”
*standing WYDE openmouthed waiting fer brulees.*
Numnumnumnummy, brulees are so good they are custardly.
Ok, you have forced me to haul out the Puddin’cutters and the Pudtriot Missles. *phweeeee phweee phwee phwee phwee*
….and, two threads with nuthin’ to do with each other is the story of my life….muhahahaha…..
*splot splot whomp….bloop (a little ‘un)
gonna make meself hungry in a minute (man) here.
Thanks, lurkertype, for your thoughts. I guess we can’t wait around for Sam to make the decision. Thats something I’m going to have to do. Bring on the salami.
But enough about that.
[loading 4" PVC pipe with chopped bologna]
[adjusting and aiming incendiary device]
Oh, yea. It’s going to take more than Mr. Bubble to get you guys clean tonight!
[ducking and covering with the cone of silence]
somebody say “duck”?
lurkertype, like jaypo, I don’t know how you feel about this, but when my babies (two cats) moved in with me, my boyfriend, and his cat we just about had WWIII. What got us through the first three months or so was the use of the Feliway pheromone diffuser:
It is supposed to help with things like appetite loss and when you introduce a new cat into the multi-cat household. It’s a little pricy, but it was worth it for us.
Give both TK and HRT a scritch for me. Good luck.
Whee! I’ll get right in the way for a splotch of Devonshire cream.
Pudding, no. Devonshire cream, you got me.
[gives predetermined hand signal]
The first time Mr. Grumphus Bumfus Bunn B. Doofus, Esq. did this, I damned near had a heard attack. No-one told me that this was normal bunny behavior! Why isn’t this in the House Rabbit Handbook, eh?
errrr… heart attack.
it’s cool, but it’s right at the beginning of the video.
I was involved in a minor car accident today (no one got hurt, FYI) and I’ve been in a sour mood; but this prosh bun-bun is exactly what I need to feel better. Thanks!
Cute Overload: The best medicine since laughter.
Are you sure there’s a definition of “Flop” in the dictionary? I can’t find it…
[repacking 4" PVC pipe with chopped bologna]
[overloading incendiary device]
. . . hmmm, did I overload the incendiary device? Oh, well, the more the merrier . . .
[AIMING . . . ]
flurp! I’m a happy bun bun, o yeh! I’m one solid flurp of flurpin’ goodness! FLURP!
rpennefe, thanks! I will run out tomorrow and get enough Feliway to cluster-bomb (see how I tied the threads together there, huh?) the house.
I think HRTortie has a tummy full of fur right now too. I must be on the alert for horkage. TK is not completely boingity right now as he is a little tired from his shots. I took advantage of this to skritch him repeatedly.
Still no pudding, etc. in the house, but I did find some homemade applesauce.
Applesauce? What about sour cream? While my brulee battalion is formidable, I also practice PPP (Potato Pancake Propulsion), using the trap houses from my skeet shooting days.
Oh, and Arvay:
Mr. Grumphus Bumfus Bunn B. Doofus, Esq.
is the Best. Rabbit Name. Ever. Makes me laugh every time. What do you call him for short, though?
My Ginger Princess Kitteh does the *FLOP* if I ignore her when she wants a head massage
Oh and currently loading the “Pav-a-pult” in Melbourne Oz and aiming for the west coast
LurkerT – good luck with the kittehs and yes, my family is a hoot. As farmers (even though I’m a city girl now), if we didn’t laugh we would be in REALLY bad shape. They all love Elvis – I was raised to believe animals are fundamental to our existence.
Danielle – Best wishes with Sam. Just know you’ve been blessed to have him in your life for as long as you have.
None of the bunnies I’ve ever shared my home with would flop *quite* like that… but they were all a lot smaller than that big ole bun! But sometimes *I* want to flop that way myself…
I really must. have. a. bunny. NOW!
So what’s the record on the postest with the mostest comments? I had the urge to prop my eyelids up with toothpicks to stay up and read all the comments.. ;)
Three words, betty: Baby. Chomp. Kitty.
Search for the post. Look at the photo. Come up with your own point of view. But DO NOT get caught in the rip current of comments, or you’ll just want to take those toothpicks and plunge them into your eyes.
Betty – You asked so I have to say the record (as far as I’m aware) is this 1199 post. However, I’m told it gets reallllly ugly. I’ve been warned to stay away, far far away. Enter with caution:
You’re a better person than I, Aubrey. Give Betty a description of a post, she’ll search for days. Give Betty a direct link, she’ll be destroyed in an hour.
(Apologies to Confuscious [sp])
WOOT! I’m not going to waste my precious wee hours of the morning reading all those posts…I’ll wait until tomorrow when I’m supposed to be doing something really productive…. But thank you for answering my Q!
Funny, I read those three words and saw the picture in my head…I’ve got subliminal CO now..not so much overloaded, but definitely saturated!
Eeeh, bunny tongue!
My Niles does that – he’s the best snorgle partner I’ve ever had.
Wow, that was the quickest flop ever. Seriously, if you blink, you’ll miss it.
NTMTOM: sounded like the announcer said something about Elvis’ barbecue sauce to me. Not so sure about the Sure Start part.
Hohoho Bebe does that too. I have a video of Momo who does that…
I love this video so much that I played it 3 times. XD I love flopping bunnies. XD XD
Extremely cute. I also liked that little exchange that ended with the crack about the HeadOn commercials. Aren’t they supposed to be alleviating migranes rather than instigating them?
Hahaha, rabbit seizure.
Cain sez [refering to Head-On],
“Aren’t they supposed to be alleviating migranes rather than instigating them?”
I’m not quite sure what they do. and that is the genius of that commercial: it promises *nothing*. I must say, first few times I saw it I was sure it was one of those mock commercials from Saturday Night Live.
Let me begin by saying that I love the maximum floppitude here. Next, let me say that I heard something about ‘Bic SureStart’ being the best in…something or the other. And then I heard what I believe was ‘Hellmans’s Barbecue Sauce’. I could be wrong.
If anyone is still reading this thread…
LurkerT: Have I mentioned this before? I found a book called Cat versus Cat: Keeping the Peace in a Multicat Household (or something like that) by Pam Johnson-Bennett, feline behaviorist. It might help. Or there might be a disclaimer: Be advised that this information applies to all cats except torties. They’re just impossible.
little miao: There was at least one more in the series (the second, I think) called The Celery Stalks at Midnight. If I remember correctly from oh so many moons ago, Bunnicula sucks the juice out of the veggies, leaving them dry and withered, which to Chester the cat is absolute PROOF that Bunnicula is indeed a vampire bunny.
arbed: No mint was involved in the kitten/mouth situation. In fact, having been at the shelter for most of the day, I imagine the interior of my mouth was distinctly NOT minty. If Ms. Buhtterfly so desires, she can post the pic, although it will reveal my super secret spy identity.
Talking of definitions, I have submitted snorgle etc to the Oxford English Dictonary and they have been added to the new words database, as been coined by cuteoverload so in a few years Cute overlaod might make the dictonary!
Dewi — were you also the one who entered “Snorgle” in the Urban Dictionary?
I love this site. I really, truly do. And I love all of you.
I came home from work today in a horribly rotten mood, because my job sucks and I hate it and I think it’s slowly killing me…and I found the CO e-mail in my inbox, saw the ceute bunbun floppitude, read all the comments and I instantly felt better.
Thank you guys. Thank you CO. Thank heaven.
Nicole – do you want to meet up and eat a couple of gallons of ice cream together?
I’m in rather a vile mood myself.
*Hugs* to yas in the vile moods. I’m ina tiard mood and going to bed real soon, but dang it, had to catch up!
100s of comments per pic, tho…..yaaaargh. :) It’s awwwwwwesome.
HELLO Q SUCH I HAVE SURPRISED VERY MUCH, THAT lovely!
Aubrey, I could definitely go for a few gallons of ice cream. I’m so glad it’s Saturday and I have two days before I have to go back to hell–oops, I mean work.
Mmm…ice cream for breakfast…
mmmm. . . ice cream over French toast!
Then syrup droooozled over all.
You know what I’ve been doing lately…melting (crunchy) peanut butter and heating up my Scharffenberger’s chocolate sauce and pouring them both over ice cream. God, it’s good. Who’da thunk melty PB would be such a good topping for ice cream? Not me. (I saw it on TV, otherwise it would never have occurred to me.)
I tell myself it’s protein and calcium.
Did anyone else originally think for a minute that the music was dubbed IN?
Kitten eating picture link follows:
If anyone is even still following this thread…
“Hmm. Yup. Uh-huh. Yuppers. Just as I suspected. You’re going to need to have those tonsils removed…”
LOL buhtterfly and Shelley T.
We all run around saying “Oh, it’s so kyute, I want to put it in my mouf.”
YAY to ShelleyTambo for being the one to take the plunge and Actually Nawm The Kitteh.
(No kittehs were harmed in the fulfillment of this saying.)
This particular kitter, if I ‘member correctly, was being adopted and we were holding him so we could keep him separated from his sibs. Conversation ensued (paraphrased from memory of a few months ago):
Me: “Wow, his head’s so small I bet it could fit in my mouth.”
Other vols: “Hahahaha. Probably.”
Me: *Holds kitty up, about one inch from open mouth. Kitty puts paw on bottom lip, sticks head in mouth.* Ptoo! Ptoo! Yuck, fur in my mouth!”
Other vols: “HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.”
Buhtterfly: “You HAVE to see if he’ll do it again so I can get a picture!”
Me: “Eh, ok.” *Holds kitty up again, kitty repeats process but also licks tongue.* “Cough, choke hack. Yuck! He licked my tongue!”
To anyone who does want to put the kyuteness in de mouf, be advised–there will be possible tongue licking and probable fur spitting.
Yes, no kitters were harmed.
oh ShelleyT, too funneh!
hope you didn’t get kitty litter gravel pieces on your tongue too, when kitty walked into your mouf.
Re cat heads in mouth: ex-BF, after a few drinks, showing off for company, put the head of grudge-bearing gray tabby in his mouth. Cat thrashed and scratched, and in the ruckus following, glass thingies were broken. I don’t know who was madder, me (whose knicknacks they were) or the cat. Verrry dangerous to put cats in mouth indeed. It invites both scorn and scratches.
ShelleyT, I imagine that’s exactly how it looked the other day when TuxKit did that to me!
ShellyT, actually I think we were just playing with this kitten because he was cute, these guys at the time were underaged still, but again, who knows if I’m remembering this right?
Aaaaaugh. Furry kit with raspy tongue and fangs in my mouth? Noooo….don’t think soooo…..but I have picked up the urge to put “cute” in my mouf.
HELP!!! I can’t stop watching this bunny video!!!!!!!!! I’m really going to overload on cute fuzzy bunnies.
Seeing as it’s been almost *one month* [gasp] since we all got a bunny fix here at CO, jonesing bunny lovers are welcome to take a meep at my Indy in her Bunny Lounge. Just till Meg remembers to feed us again. :-)
es conejo0 esta divinisimooo
Bunny tipping!! :P
my rabit does that haha
