That lick-hither look

OMG, this kitteh is the Marilyn Monroe bed photo shoot of kittehs.

Happy Birthday Mr. President

Except that this kitteh is a boy named Cosmo. Yeah, except for that, it’s spot on, right Davia S.? 😉



  1. So… tired… must still… wash…

  2. Spiky Tongue says:

    a COXCU of that tongue would be delish…


  4. Why am I thinking Richard Gere in American Gigolo and humming “Call Me” by Blondie???

  5. I has flavor!

    Take me home, i’m delicious!

    oh kitty boy, you flirt!

  6. I’ll tell ya what’s spot on… licking this delicious paw of mine.

  7. “Why jes dahlink…I know jou cannot rrresist my manly charms. For I am Cosmo and I am beeautiful.”

  8. kitteh has that sexy, not-yet-rolled-out-of-bed look. mee-ow!

  9. Davia S. says:

    Hello everyone. It breaks my heart to inform you that Cosmo was hit by a car last night and has passed away. We normally keep him in the house, but he got out last night through an open window. Early this morning our neighbor knocked on our door and informed us that he saw Cosmo’s body in the street a few houses down the block. Cosmo will be missed and will always have a special place in our hearts.


  10. i’m so sorry Davia S. He’s such a pretty kitty…… =(

  11. [ouch]

    I’m sorry too. That’s terrible.

  12. OMG – Davia! I am so sorry to hear that. 😦 I recently lost my kitty-boy. This is very tragic but I’m glad he got a tribute here on c.O.


  13. I never thought I’d say (type) this, but man does that chest look soft and inviting.

  14. Davia,

    My condolences to you. Losing a beloved pet is heart breaking, I’m so very sorry for your loss.

  15. So sorry about Cosmo. He was truly gorgeous and very snuggly looking.

  16. Davia – I’m so sorry to hear that! 😦

    ((*sending out a virtual hug*))

  17. Oh Davia, I’m so sorry. He made my day today, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  18. warrior rabbit says:

    Oh Davia, I’m so sorry! He just looks like a big love muffin. My condolences.

  19. I was so happy to see this pic, but then to read the bad news… My heart goes out to you Davia. How sad.

  20. So sorry to hear about your loss…losing a pet is one of the hardest things ever. At least you have a wondeful photo to remember him with! And what a great photo it is too!

  21. Wilhelm Scream!


  22. Better than a devil dog

  23. Oh, I just read all the posts – I’m so sorry to hear about Cosmo!

  24. oaklandcat says:

    Oh Davia, let me add my condolences for your sweet Cosmo.

  25. Oh no…that’s so sad.
    The picture is asking for a human imitation, though :P.

  26. Oh, I went from happies to sads.

    Poor Cosmo — but what a great memorial for him.

    White cats have the cleanest, piiiiinkest noses EVAR!

  27. ooooooohhhhhhhhh I love kitty porn!!! What a beauitful baby!!

  28. Just kidding, he’s not dead.

  29. Stephanie S. says:

    Oh, no. I lurk a lot and have never posted, but had to chime in and say how sorry I am to hear about Cosmo. He is a beautiful kitty and, I’m sure, had a wonderful and full life with you. Many, many condolences to you and your family.

  30. Alice Shortcake says:

    So sorry to hear that the delightful Cosmo is no more. At least he has been immortalized for posterity on CO!

  31. fluidstatic says:

    To the Davia S. who posted news of Cosmo’s death: Very sorry for the loss of your very pretty pussykitten. To the Davia S. that posted at 3:30 – if you’re a troll, you’re the most insensitive person i’ve ever seen on CO and you should be ashamed of yourself. (and if you’re the same Davia S from earlier, you’ve seriously harshed my CO-induced mellow. Geez.)

  32. Davia, I’m so sorry for your loss. What a handsome fellow he was.

  33. Cosmo: You waaant me…I knooow you do…
    *licking self and giving “how u doin'”-look.*

  34. sizzle,sizzle,sizzle,I’m hot!

  35. A beautiful dreamer. Cosmo is in his own little galaxy.

  36. I agree with fluidstatic. One of those Davia S’s is really sick.

  37. PS – they’re two different people because their emails are different.

  38. how amazingly luscious that cat is! am so sorry about his demise. My own luscious jackson of a cat is very ill.

  39. Puffy Kat Girl says:

    It looks like its having the time of HIS life!!

  40. Davia S — if that IS you, writing both of those two conflicting and manipulative comments, then I must say, my opinion of you has just dropped right about through the floor.

    So which is it? Dead or alive?

  41. Oh, Davia .. I’m so sorry to hear this! My heart is breaking for you….

  42. Davia.. I’m so sorry you lost your little boy.

  43. It’s an x file now… the truth is out there. If poor Cosmo has truly gone to the great big catnip field in the sky, then we should have a memorial service, CO style:
    Dearly beloved
    We are gathered here today
    2 get through this thing called life

    Electric word life
    It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
    But I’m here 2 tell u
    There’s something else
    The afterworld

    A world of never ending happiness
    U can always see the sun, day or night

    So when u call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
    U know the one – Dr Everything’ll Be Alright
    Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
    Ask him how much of your mind, baby

    ‘Cuz in this life
    Things are much harder than in the afterworld
    In this life
    You’re on your own

    And if de-elevator tries 2 bring u down
    Go crazy – punch a higher floor!

  44. — Prince is practically my neighbor.
    (OK, not really… Paisley Park is in Shakopee, which is a bit of a drive.)

  45. It felt.. Appropriate. I don’t really like his Royal Purpleness much, but I have all his songs memorized cause I shared a room with my older sister and she wanted to marry him. Eww.

  46. smokeyJoe says:

    i’m so sorry about your cat. that really sux.


    (halo kitty)

  47. I cannot believe that I am the first person to post this – p’zandas!!! Red wuns!! Teh Skwee!

  48. This is so weird… I had a kitty named Kosmo who looked just like this, except his eyes were green. I had to put him to sleep last month because he had cancer, and I miss him like hell. I’m so sorry for your loss Davia.

  49. Davia, blessings to you in your loss and sadness. He was a beautiful kitteh.

  50. lurkingsmirk says:

    I tried to come hither but I bonked my nose on the screen…

    Kitteh is a fluffy white angel now =(

  51. Lovely kitten pirtures.

  52. Cathryn Bauer says:

    Davia, I am so sorry for this tragic loss. I know Cosmo was so happy with you; he has that look. I believe he’s now warm, happy, and safe in the Summerland, thinking loving and grateful thoughts of you.

  53. Ok, so I didn’t get in first with the red pandas, but did anyone already see The Levitating Goats?

    What season is it? It must be SPROING!

  54. LOL, goat floats… maybe you’d care to check out *my* Vox…?

  55. AuntieMame says:

    So is the cat dead or not?

    Somebody’s playing an exceedingly rude “joke” either way.

  56. Goat floats is baaaaaaad – you get the hair stuck in your teefs and it’s dificult to find the right flavour of icecream :p

  57. In case Cosmo really is dead, my condolences to you Davia. I’m lighting a candle anyway. If it’s all a lie, Cosmo can use the extra thoughts. Self-fulfilling prophecy, be careful what you wish for, awful coincidences, etc.

  58. Oh nooooes! I’m so sorry, Davia. And what weird timing. 0.o

    Re: the second Davia post… either she mis-typed her own email address, or it’s a troll. What a freak.

    Finally, I have to say that I can smell the kitty bref from here.

  59. Paula Kubik says:

    I was going to say, Gene Simmons, eat your heart out, but then I saw the sad post about Cosmo’s tragic accident. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  60. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    Davia, so sorry to hear about cosmo. One of my boys is missing, I hope the answer is not the same.

  61. lynnrwright says:

    good comment word .

  62. hey my kitty Bryce looks just like Cosmo! Except Bryce has 3 faint black splotches on his head so everyone always thinks I dropped paint on him… If Cosmo has truely passed on to kitty heaven he’ll be in good company with my cat Kitty who passed away several years back…

  63. nermalkitty says:

    somebody better get back on here and clarify this situation. don’t make us come thru cyberspace as a single conscious to annihilate the evil you have allowed yourself to become ……

  64. Rest in peace, sweet Cosmo. Davia, ((((big hugs))))

  65. FYI Peeps —
    Postpone thy Peevishness, for I Prognosticate and Predict a Plethora of Prosh Posts!

  66. ThreeCatNight says:

    “Oh, Mr DeMille, I’m ready for my closeup. Wait, another lick here. Oops – missed a spot!”
    (If Cosmo’s really gone, then my heart goes out to you Davia. I’ve been down that road several times. If he’s not, then someone’s really got a problem upstairs.)

  67. Yitzysmommie says:

    Cosmo is a beautiful kitteh and I lurves his tongue. I remain cornfused this morning about the second Davia post….any wisdom, Teho or Meg? Either way, loves and purrs to Cosmo and his true owner.

  68. YMom — nope, nothing to add, sorry… the behind-the-scenes info was inconclusive. I will say that I have no patience for any further BS around this matter, though, and I’ll continue to monitor.

    (nobody effs with my Peeps)

  69. Yikes. This really is a no win situation. If the initial comment is true, how awful is it that we, as a group, would demand proof. In all liklihood, (im)poster #2 is just a troll and needs his/her IP address blocked from further posting. This seems a happy bunch of cutelovers, for the most part. Maybe a members -only option is the answer.

  70. Oh My — exactly. And I hear what you’re saying about “members only” comment-posting, and you make a good point. I don’t really want to do that, though, and neither does Meg.

    My strong feeling is that it would squelch the dialog here too much. The anti-spam “captcha” test is already enough of an obstacle… y’know, type in these six blurry characters to prove you’re not a zombie robot? It’s already high enough on a scale of one to “necessary evil,” don’cha think?

    Anyway, for now and the foreseeable future, CO has live wetware moderating the forum (c’est moi). I don’t see the need for the extra extra user-authentication step at this time; it’s too impersonal.

    An illustration of both states, a dead and living cat. According to quantum theory, after an hour the cat is in a quantum superposition of coexisting alive and dead states. Yet when we look in the box we expect to only see one of the states, not a mixture of them

  72. I’m so sorry to hear about your loss- But he’s got a lovely memorial on C.O., with hundreds upon hundreds of people loving his sensual nature- and adorableness.

  73. kellyfaerie says:

    Theo – Maybe something at least to register a nick name and tie it to a specific email address? That would solve the minor problem of having two Kelly’s for example (for a while we were both posting as “kelly” so it could have been confusing). The way we have it now, it is way too easy for this type of thing to happen.

  74. KellyFaerie — that service exists already (free), but it’s voluntary, not required. It’s called TypeKey & I even use it; you can click my name link to pull up my profile as an example. More info here:

  75. I can almost smell the kitty breath and feel the sandpaper tongue. (Ick).

  76. Cosmo is so beautiful! give us a kiss darlin…

  77. just wanted to comment on how much I love this pic. read the other comments and..weirdoverload…(?!)it’s always heartbreaking to lose a special animal.
    it’s a great photo.

  78. The First Noel says:

    I think that only proven Cuteoverload Addicts should be allowed to post in this site. How about a vote?

    Those who are not Cuteoverload addicts enough would have to leave.

    We could have a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most addicted, and everyone would have to be above a 9.5 to post.

    This would weed out the imposters and the not truly cute-addicted.

  79. my CO addiction goes to ELEVEN.

  80. CUTE CAT !!!!!!!!!

  81. this is too confusing …

    is this lovely kitteh alive or not ???

  82. Ambiguous… so maybe YOU get to choose.

    Or, you could go look at these!

  83. Yitzysmommie says:

    CONGRATULATIONS, THEO & especially Kenya!!! My comp has an evil demon causing slow load today so I’m having a hard time looking at the video, gggrrr, and then I’m off to an all day conference so I cannot noodle on the interwebs, double grr. The bebehs are adorabuls – how many? I hope that Mom and bebhs and the proud granparents are all resting comfurtubully today 🙂
    Will return later & hope for many more pix.

  84. eee!

    It’s going to take a powerful amount of self-control to keep me from getting a new kitten today.

  85. He’s so cute. Sorry about his loss.

  86. test. This is not actually Theo

  87. Kelyfaerie says:

    ok that was me. I wanted to see if it would disallow me from choosing your name, Theo, and it didn’t. So, sure you can register, but it doesnt stop someone from posting with your name.

  88. Kellyfaerie says:

    aaaaand i misspelled my name anyway. doh. 😛

  89. is Cosmo OK or not? you cant kid around saying he’s passed on and then say it was a joke. you have to be honest. karma will catch up with you!

  90. Dania Schmidt says:

    Hi everyone…. not sure how this post got so off track but… I’m happy to tell you that COSMO is alive and well and probably licking himself at home as we speak.

    Also, my name is DANIA not Davia… I think whoever entered the picture on the site made a typo and this is just causing problems for no good reason.

  91. Dania Schmidt says:

    PS – I would have posted sooner but I just realized today that Cosmo was even on the site. Thanks for all the kind words, I do adore him.

  92. Just one more comment… this is from Cosmo… he’s inviting all of his well-wishers to visit his myspace page so you can see he is alive and well.

    Thanks again for all the kind words.

  93. fluidstatic says:

    Thank you, Dania, for your email letting us know that beautiful Cosmo is alive and well. What a strange and complicated trick this has been!
