See what happens when you write your own brillo caption? I cannot top eet!



  1. AuntieMame says:

    Yay! Stringzzzzz…

  2. too tie-tie to play.

  3. this post is calico DOOM for all who bear witness

  4. OMG! Too cute! Cat’s cradle!

  5. Michelle says:

    The cute. I cannot take it!

  6. Don’t fall asleep! Not yet! You can’t spin a yarn and not tell us how it ends!

  7. Martha in Washington says:

    Kittens and yarn and naps-who needs anything more?

  8. Squee! My own kitty decided yesterday as I was finishing my first knit project that she wanted to eat my yarn. While very picturesque, I was a bit concerned all my work would be eaten!

  9. I bet that yarn’s planted.

    Regardless, *purr*

  10. Another Angela says:

    Kitten is pawndering the cosmic String Theory.

  11. kevin h. says:

    Quantum cat is entangled!

  12. riolinda says:

    cute, cute, cute! This totally had made my day! 🙂

  13. Ah, so this is how one meets CO´s string-ent requirements.

  14. Yitzysmommie says:

    Ahhhhh, look at his two tone nosie!

  15. OMG is right this is really dangerous for cats.

  16. I used to work in a vet clinic and many surgeries on cats were done b/c of yarn…cute but not recommended!

  17. OMG. that is one b-e-a-uuuuuutiful kittehn. wow. oh, i want to snorgle.

  18. Furbabies says:

    Awww, look at the wee kitty smile. So happy. So sleepies. Gimme!

  19. I was going to say the same thing as Rob. As cute as it is to see a kitty play with string/yarn it has to be supervised. My own cat got into some yarn one night and ended up swallowing a piece about 2 feet long. Because of their unique tongues the yarn hooks onto the little barbs and they just keep swallowing.
    Long story short he had to have emergency surgery, turned out the string had already passed his large intestine and so then the poor little guy had to have three enemas before they got it all out!
    $1500 dollars later we learned the hard way and almost lost our beloved pet.

  20. SeaBreeze says:

    Soooo cute!!

    Lori and Rob are right – string + pets = too many sad outcomes if we’re not careful. Thanks for the caution!

  21. moggyfan says:

    Aww, so tie-tie, so adorable.
    But I second (or third or fourth) the statement that string-time should always be supervised!

  22. So moggy, would that make you a second stringer?

  23. strung-out, I am …

  24. “OK. From now on, you’ll be stringing your tennis rackets with THIS!”

  25. Suda Nim says:

    Someone was trying to ply the kitten to play, and kitteh came off the worsted for it. So he knitted his brow, closed his eyes and purled.

    Acrylic you knot.

  26. Pearl Ostroff says:

    For those who called this cat a he, she’s almost certainly a she.

  27. Suda Nim, you rock, as does the kitteh.

  28. *flashback*

    I just remembered coming home one day and seeing that my sister’s prized crochet chain ball (an entire skien that had been chained–don’t ask) had been rolled off the bed, into the hallway, down the stairs, into the living room, across the furniture, and into the bathroom.

    Sigh. Cats.

  29. My calico had a two-tone nose like that as a kitten. The black gradually spread as she grew older, and now at age 15 her nose is entirely black. Has anyone else ever seen that happen?

  30. ya’ know I just told the allergist that I hardly used my inhaler anymore…how can I explain

    cuteness induced asthma…

  31. Oakie never heard of a nose changing like that…

  32. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl.

    Perhaps she was trying to knit herself a blankie and just got too tie-tie to finish it in time for napz.

  33. I will defeat you string.
    Right after this short nap from our sponsers.

  34. oh there’s the damn cat, there’s the damn cradle.

    Sorry, I had to. <3 Vonnegut.

  35. OHMYLORD!!! that is SOOO CUTE!!!!!!

  36. prays for jelly says:

    What’s that redness on her tiny little paw?

  37. For those saying she ought to have been supervised … She was. That’s my arm she’s in, and I was playing with her with the other by wiggling the wool before she started to snooze, looking so cute I had to shout somebody to bring me a camera and I took the photo one handed 🙂

    So she was in no danger, you’ll be glad to know!

  38. prays for jelly, you mean that dark bit on her foot? It’s a black bit on her pads, I think.

  39. Brief emergence from lurkdom says:

    Oh my WORD. The title is absolute genius. I saw the picture and said, “Awww…” then I read the title and actually laughed out loud.


  40. Courtney says:

    this is the cutest thing ever!!!

  41. “Just keep that Schrodinger guy awayzzzzzz….”

  42. Contact yarn high!

  43. Gaaaaaaaaaah. That FACE!!!

  44. I love this cat!

  45. Amy she is beautiful and I love how she has gotten herself all tangled up and then fallen asleep.
    Great picture and excellent caption.
    Now get off the computer and go play with your Kitten. 😉

  46. i cant stop looking at this kitten. she is absolutely beautiful and is going to be a gorgeous cat when she’s all growns up!

  47. Ya know, the wool stops belleh access, which may be the very best part of this kitten…

    Amy … I demand belleh picture of kitteh stat!

    Let me get my inhaler ready….


  49. this is soooo cute

  50. Elizabeth P says:

    *eats the cutest of leetle paws*

    monsch monsch monsch


  51. such a sweet little face! I lofs her.

  52. Steph F. says:

    aww, bebeh 😀

    I second Elizabeth P. I wanted to monsche on the tiny little paws as well.

  53. Yep and I am all there with Metsakins…. Neeeds the Belleh!

  54. StormCat says:

    Oh the puns!!! Aubry, you are SUCH a genius for puns, I’m envious!!!

    What a little dahlin!!! I get dibs on nibbling on the ears!!!

  55. lauowolf says:

    I waz gonna make a cradle, but I waz too tie-tie.

  56. lauowolf says:

    New nose spots?
    Yes, they can just pop up, grow or change.
    It’s just pigment.
    I had it happen with a couple of cats.
    The Hencat’s black nose started off as a dot on each side of a pink nose.
    It was really cute, but they spread.
    She didn’t get her full perfect black nose until she was over a year old.
    And Zelda, the perfect pink nosed Tuxie cat grew a black spot when she was ten.
    They were both fine — just a change of color.
    Maybe they were doing late editing of the markings?

    You have to watch closely, though, because they can also get little skin cancers on the nose, which start out as spots.
    (Had that too, on another cat — but it isn’t all smooth and normal looking the way the pigment change is.)

  57. Truly, did I need ANY more reasons why I need a kittehn of my own? My yarns stash is in dire need of some snorgling!

  58. Wow, I just ADORE the title. I can totally visualize.

    OMG string!

  59. OMGPAWS…

    **deep cleansing breaths**

    Okay, I can ask my slightly OT question now. Since we’re talking kitty noses here. My kitty has a pink nose. Sometimes it’s really red, like a coral reef red. (Providing the reef itself is the kind with red coral and not some other colored coral.) Sometimes it’s really pale, almost white. I’ve been watching this phenomenon and there’s no discernable pattern. Shade of the kitty nose is not related to stress, sleepiness, heat, cool or weather as far as I can tell. It doesn’t seem to be related to coldness and wetness of the nose itself, either. So why does it change shades? And how? Is it related to blood flow, like when a person blushes? My mom has been monitering her black kitties noses too. Sometimes they’re a lighter grey, so they do change, but it’s not as noticable as my little sweetie’s.

  60. That kitteh is smiling so hard it might hurt itself there…
    what a wonderful picture wants to pplay but soooooooooo bushed must slleeeeepiessssssssss

  61. I don´t know, I think the title should be:
    Gee, String!

  62. Sarai. WE have a white kitty, his nose changes too from pink to pearly pink. I don’t know why, I just know it does.

  63. Sarai, my sister has two mostly white kitties – you can see one of them here: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v419/Alaidh/Hpim0114.jpg

    Anyway, when they run around or are in any way excited, their ears and noses are bright pink like the coral you described, but when calm and sleepy, they’re a pale, pale pink. I do believe your guess is right and it’s the blood flow.

  64. Brak_Silverbone says:

    Kitty was studying string theory, and it was just so boring that it put her to sleep!

  65. I almost died of cuteness.

  66. acelightning says:

    Yep, we need another Rule of Cuteness: A tiny critter is *always* cute when it’s asleep. (Even full-grown critters are often cuter when they’re asleep. Like my husband.)

  67. Brak_Silverbone says:

    Metsakins, you’re a genius–EXACTLY like that! :3

  68. great minds think alike

    string theory baffles me however…

  69. Shaz, that picture says Ho Hum all right I will sit here while you take the picture but I DO NOT APPROVE! Hehehehehe

  70. Brak THe kitty is bored by the disertaiton on the string theory because all cats have understood String Theory Physics for centureiers and don’t know why only a select few of us get it. They humor our inferior intelligence.

  71. Madison says:

    Okay I admit it, this baby kitten might be the cutest kitten in CO!

  72. Yitzysmommie says:

    Sarai, Annie & Shaz – Yitzy has a pink nose on a white muzzlepuff and I have noticed the color changing too. I like the blood flow theory.

  73. Sweet Lady says:

    I’m sleeping like this so that when I wake up, I can start playing again! Duh… 😉

  74. Thank you for the theories, peeps… Right now she’s sleeping and her nose is a nice medium pink. (She’s a little bengal girl, with light fawn undercoat and tiger stripes that grow in lines of spots, rather than stripes.) A friend of mine saw my comment and emailed me this link: http://www.paws-and-effect.com/pawsandeffect72.html .

  75. Awww, cute little kitteh – sooo sweepy……..

  76. pat_the_bunny says:

    Calico toe-beans! Yaaaaaahhhhh!

    Pooped itself out in the middle of play-play.

  77. Catherine P says:

    Ooh, she’s being a Molly Bad Girl at the moment. She keeps running upstairs and jumping at the big grown up cat of the house, who isn’t much amused.

    How could such an angelic looking kitten be so naughty?

  78. ooh! ooh! super fluff!

  79. Schrodinger’s cat, anyone? Calculating string theory and quantum physics in his sleep….. anyone? anyone?

  80. its not schrodingers cat cause its not in a box

    its a friend of this cat
