My Plans for the Weekend, by Theo


Ayup.  Pretty much.
Have a good one, y’all!

(normal, full-size version can be found here)



  1. Okay, I understand everything but the safari guy in stilettos picking the cat’s nose…

    But cute cat.

    [It wasn’t a pick! There was no pick! – Ed.feld]

  2. China's Mom says:

    What a sweet little bebeh! I remember when mine would sleep in my arms that way, God I LOVE kittens!

  3. He’s beeping the kitteh’s nose, Hobbit!

  4. Martha in Washington says:

    Theo, that looks like the perfect weekend to me! Can I join you? You live in Minnesota or someplace right? Let me just MapQuest that.

  5. SlaveToThreeFelines says:

    This looks just like my Katie Scarlett O’Hara when she was but a wee one. Her fur might have been a tad longer though. She still lays like that and she’s almost 9! She’s the queen of the household, and a good guard kitty. She has to know all that is going on, but she makes sure she hisses at everyone a few times to let them know she is THE QUEEN.

  6. Katy with a Capital K says:

    That’s adorable. I do wish there weren’t a cartoon guy with words popping up all over it – it’s cute as is, but eh, whatever.

  7. good Choice Theo. I feel the peace of the Purr Right thru the Computer screen. And the beep on your shirt matches the finger poke of the safari Guy. Did you do that on Poipose/ HEHEHE


  8. the strange safari guy in stilettos is the one and only THEO, prancing around in privacy,


  9. Prosh tortie looks a lot like my darling Maine Coon cat Tango, now 22 months old. Similar markings, but Tango has a clean orange stripe down her nose, an orange right front foot, and one orange toe on her left hind foot.

    She was a feral stray I adopted when she was just 10 weeks old. I named her Tango as a kittiefied version of “Tangerine,” for her pretty orange markings. Silly me–I forgot that the 9-month-old rescue kitty I had adopted the previous month was named “Paris,” a name the rescue society had given her and asked me to keep.

    So now whenever people meet my kitties, they think I named them after the Marlon Brando movie “The Last Tango in Paris.”

  10. Katy — OK — I added a link to the un-cartooned original.

  11. BTW, I had to copy-paste the pic into a Word document so I could look at it and squee without the constant distraction of the safari guy and the words blocking out teh cute.

  12. I have pussy envy.

    Theo gets all the cute pussies.


  13. I need help!

    I found a baby kitten under a car and have since taken to rasing him (he’s tooo cute) he’s growing like a weed but my dogs seem to think he’s lunch! what can I do about this? I turn to you, cute overloaders, for advice!

  14. fluidstatic says:

    now you need to do just that, in that order, about that fast.

    Pokey-pokey BEEP!!!


  15. metsakins says:

    I would introduce them slowly and keep them separate when your not around. I also discipline inapproriate behavior but I’m not going to open that can of worms. I had a dog and two cats when growing up and the cats were given to us by their mom when she decided we were a good home. Everyone got along.

    Theo –kitty is a beauty.

  16. Suda Nim says:


    This is how my trainer worked with me and my dog (singular).

    Put a harness on the dog so it’s easy to grab without pulling on its neck. Have treats at your disposal (I highly recommend CharleeBear; they’re small so you can feed lots at one session, and dry so you don’t get your hands all smelly. At PetsMart).

    Have the dog lie down while the cats are around. Hold onto the harness’s back strap whenever necessary. Do the *ahn* unpleasant nasal noise whenever the dog makes any sort of physical motion or over-stares at the cats.

    Make attractive noises so the dog wants to look at you. Whenever it doesn’t pay attention to the cats, reward it with a “good dog!” and a treat.

    The object is to teach the dog that leaving cats alone leads to Good Things.

    Since you have multiple dogs, I don’t really know how to adapt this, except to suggest that you take one dog at a time into a room with the cats.

    Anyone else?

  17. metsakins says:

    I’d start by doing it separately as well. We however liked our kats and doggie to interact.

    Suda – do your cats and dog play together now? Just curious.

  18. hautemustard says:

    Ed.feld . . does no one enjoy the “Monty Python”-esque humor of it all? barbarians

  19. Suda Nim says:


    Well, I never got to find out. The dog died before training was complete. But it did seem to be working. Cats are also long gone, and one dog I have right now is so extremely prey-agressive that I would never even try.

    The original dog was raised with the cats since he was a puppy. It was just as he became a snotty young-adult 2-year-old that he tried becoming boss.

  20. I love how even the shirt changes to say ‘beep’.

    Aaadorable, Theo! 😀

  21. wow soo much like my girl Cleo (she is an angel baby now). I so adore the cocoa-torty kitties. Makes me sad and happy all at once! But mainly happy.

  22. metsakins says:

    I was just wondering if the guy in heels knows any lumberjacks

  23. metsakins says:

    My dog played with the cats. and one of the cats would run up to him and head butt him. that was also a longtime ago.

  24. metsakins says:

    While we’re asking for advice I have a problem thats bothering me. Up until 3 months ago I had 3 kats and Handsome was the boss. He cleaned them and took turns sleeping with them when a lap wasn’t available. the other 2 kats never minded each other but weren’t crazy about each other. Now Handsome is gone. One cat is adjusting well but the other one really misses him and tries to get the other cat to groom him and play with him. Other cat having none of it. Short of getting a kitten for the lonely one, can u think of anyway I can improve the relationship between them?

  25. “I was just wondering if the guy in heels knows any lumberjacks”

    Doubt it, but I believe he knows quite well the fish-slapping dance.

  26. metsakins says:

    thanks I forgot about that one

  27. SeaBreeze says:

    Awwww! =) SO cute!! n prosh beyond beliefs!! =)

  28. Nibble, nibble, squeeze, squeeze, pokey, pokey, beep?

    Wow, sounds like you’ve got a full schedule.

  29. Oh, and forgive me for commenting again, but it’s nice to see the return of the High-Heeled Nose Beeper Dude.

  30. Metsakins, Give them plenty of time to readjust at least two months before bringing in another little one. They will work out the relationship. As long as they are not drawing blood.

  31. Shannon Johnson says:

    Very nice. That’s how my cat Rudy looked when he wanted to be very lazy.

  32. lurkingsmirk says:

    I want that to be my weekend too!

  33. acelightning says:

    So your plans for the weekend revolve around being cuddled by a young man with hairy forearms? (Actually, that doesn’t sound so bad at all… especially if he also brings me drinks and snacks…)

  34. Amen Theo!! He looks like our tortie Minki. I actually said “AWWWW” out loud when seeing this!! Theo is adorable!

  35. Tina Rhea says:

    Nibble nibble squeeze squeeze pokey pokey beep? The amount of kitten abuse that goes on here is just appalling…. Let the poor girl sleep!

  36. theo, you suck

  37. Tuni looks so comfy!

  38. useta hada kitteh says:

    I think the Tuni dance needs to be put to music — nibble nibble, squeeze squeeze, pokey pokey, beep, UHN! nibble nibble, squeeze squeeze, pokey pokey, beep, cha cha cha! and like that. Have a wonderful weekend, Teho — but what about the other kitterguyses? Do they get any beeps and things, too?

  39. Katy with a Capital K says:

    Thank ya, Theo. 😉

  40. Ex-Network Geek says:


    Oh my gosh, how cute is that kitty? Theo, is this the closest we get to your kittens ‘n’ rack? I have one (13 years old) that will still sleep in my arms like that and right now is probably thinking, “yeah, sounds like a good weekend plan to me.” But she doesn’t claw me up like it looks like these guys have been doing to you!

    Shouldn’t the beep guy have a tutu?

  41. LOL!

    Now I’m jealous … I have WORK on the weekend. 😥

  42. Tessa, NYC says:

    This baby looks so much like my long-haired tortie who’s an absolute drama queen. In fact, we refer to her as “The Other Princess of Wails.”

  43. Theo, you lucky *******! I so envy you.

  44. Aww, she looks like my Jackie as a kitten, except Jackie has sand-colored toes.

  45. Snorgle Pup says:

    Give them nibbles & snorgles for me too. I also have to work…

  46. I wanna do what Theo’s doing this weekend. 😥

    Love the Gooshyfood!! 😀 All of a sudden my household of one kitteh doesn’t seem sufficient… at least not for a feeding frenzy!

  47. Yitzysmommie says:

    Tuni ‘N Teho’s rack = SQUEEE!
    May you have a floofalicious kitten cuddle squeeze nibble and pokey weekend with all the kitters, Mr Theo.

  48. one of the erins says:

    acelightning– you’re right, I wouldn’t mind that either.

  49. Teughcats says:

    Finally saw the gooshyfood frenzy – very funny! But at the risk of being labeled a nuff, please be careful with the open cans and kitty tongues! The vet who runs our cat rescue has terrified us with the story of a cat who essentially amputated its own tongue on the edge of a gooshyfood can and didn’t survive. We have to keep the cans away from the bebbehs or it’s instant expulsion from the volunteer list.
    I now return you to your regularly scheduled snorgling session…

  50. 2Cats — noted, thanks

  51. Natalie says:

    Awww, I love the captions. Too cute, and that is such a sweet little baby!

  52. Theresa says:

    Dat not pokin’, dat beepin’.

  53. Goggles — I like this one!
    Looks like there might be an ad in the way, though… OK, here’s another URL for the same pic:

  54. Teughcats says:

    Theo –
    I know you are the world’s best cat dad and I hope I didn’t offend, but the can thing was something I didn’t know about until recently even tho I do a lot of fostering too, so just wanted to pass it on. Happy kitten weekend!

  55. R. Moore says:

    I have a dirty mind 😦

  56. R.Moore, Having a bad case of N.U.N D’oh?

  57. Useta – “I think the Tuni dance needs to be put to music — nibble nibble, squeeze squeeze, pokey pokey, beep, UHN! nibble nibble, squeeze squeeze, pokey pokey, beep, cha cha cha! and like that” LMAO!! Teho, do you think that could be arranged? Either way, HILARIOUS suggestion Useta! ^5! 😀

  58. Theresa says:

    Right now I am going crazy trying to remember where I have seen the H-H.N.B.D. before.

  59. Remember, Theo:

    Don’t nibble/squeeze/pokey and drive! Be safe out there! Also, don’t break a heel . . . .

  60. Awwwwwww!!! Theo is having the BEST weekend!!!

    Oh, yeah, useta….I have the earworm already, and the song/dance hasn’t even been written yet! 🙂

  61. Te-ho, are you looking for a roomie? Neighbor? Maid? Slave? Human carpet!??? I must be near teh kitteeeeehhhhnnn!!!!

  62. Who is Theo? Somewhere in my mind, I imagine he and Meg are married and they chat over coffee in the garden all the time.

  63. Molly, you’ll find him here:

    Meanwhile, I find him downstairs, ’cause he is married, but not to Meg. 🙂

  64. Hehe. And right now, downstairs, mama Kenya is bathing kittens. Rikki is upside down with paws aloft. (So OK, the kittens are MOSTLY weaned.)

  65. Sabella says:

    Awww Teho! I love how you’re cradling her! That’s so sweet! What a cute bebeh kitteh!

    And what is that I see? Are her dear little arms crossed?! EEEEEE!

  66. Oh, he’s married to you, Jaye! Do you have coffee and chat in the garden?

  67. We would, but Jaye’s more of a tea person. (and the garden’s still a bit limited, heh)

    I went to sleep last nite with that in my head and woke up this morning with it in my head.
    It’s on an endlessly repeating loop.

  69. Hey you’d spell squeeze wrong too if you hardly got any sleep last night.


  70. Sabella says:

    Song could also be put to polka music. XD

  71. Theresa says:

    Someone pleeease tell me where the High Heeled Nose-Beeping Safari Dude comes from. I know I’ve seen him before, and it’s driving me bats that I can’t remember where.

  72. Sneaks into catcave, and ‘borrows’ rest of kittens to provide them wwith fair share of snorggles pokes and beeps

  73. Suda Nim says:

    I nibble-nibble-squeeze-squeeze-pokey-pokey-BEEP’d my mutt, and I’m afraid I enjoyed it a lot more than she did.

  74. useta hada kitteh says:

    Theresa — ya gotta ask Teho about dat high-heeled beepy guy, he seems to be a friend of the T’s. I can’t remember which post he was on before, either, but he was beeping a cat’s nose again, courtesy of Theo the Great.

  75. Hey, My cat looks identical to this cat. Right down to the different coloured paws and the stripes of copper on its legs. Do you know what type of cat this is? I have had her for 4 years and she still the size of a 6 month old kitten.

  76. Theresa et al. — the cartoon guy/gal is from April 20.

  77. Sarah — Tunisia kitten is your typical tortie (for “tortoiseshell”, or dark calico).

  78. NIBBLE-nibble-SQUEEZE-squeeze-pokey-POKEY


    Now, where is my kitten?

  79. Theresa says:


    OK, now I can get back to my conga line. We’re snaking our way around the building singing
    “Nibble nibble squeeze squeeze pokey pokey BEEP!
    Nibble nibble squeeze squeeze pokey pokey BEEP!”

  80. those are always my plans for the wknds too!

  81. a different Laura says:

    I think there ought to me some dance moves to “nibble, nibble, squeeze, squeeze, pokey, pokey, beep” (Can we just abbreviate it NNSSPPB?)
    We’ll start with the kindergardeners and soon it’ll be all the rage at weddings, kind of like the macarena and the hustle…

  82. TUNI!!!!!

    I lofs her, as you know. She looks so much like HRT as a bebeh that I’m really enjoying the pictures.

  83. How do U submit pics???
