“Obi Meow Catobi”

Check out this kitteh—she’s all; "These aren’t the droids you’re looking forrrr" [waving paw]


BTW, Like most kittehs, Kitteh "Callie" loves to be "under" [things] according to Sender-Inner Nikole N.

    Pretty eyes!

  2. This is not the blankie you’re looking for…move along…

  3. Catman Dude =^-.-^= says:

    When my kitty crawls under the blanket with me, I call that “Baking a potato”. So if I call my brother who answers the bedside phone and he says “I’m baking a potato”, I know that his cat is under the covers with him.

  4. Looks like this kitteh and my Doodlebug have more in common than just fur 🙂

  5. I am soooo comfortabuls I ain’t moving for nothikins… I you really need me get the pitty from the pic below in front of messy food dish

  6. The lazer beam eyes they have me hyp-no-tized.

  7. Just look into my green eyes…just look ok…

  8. this is not the cute fuzzy kitty you’re looking for… *sudden stampede as every1 in the vicinity tries to get to the kitty whether it’s the one being searched for or not*

    i’m loving the sudden Star Wars themes, keep it up1!!! (any1 remember the ATAT Walker [something like that] that was shone before in comparison to a kitty’s extra toe? that should be put back on here too. do we have any puppies with the ears balled up on the head like Princess Leia? we used to do that with our puppies a long time ago…

  9. Let’s be honest, don’t we all feel this way come Monday morning?

  10. Kar– how about *every* morning?!?

  11. Very true Rosie, especially before coffee.

    Is there life before coffee? Didn’t think so.

  12. “God, am I hungover. This is the only time when ‘the hair of the dog’ sounds good.”

  13. Raise your hand if you scratch Internet kittehs on the nose or forehead with your mouse cursor.

  14. *raises hand*

  15. Raises hand and is proud of it.

  16. Awwww. So cute! My sweet dog loved being under things too, including a blanket that looked suspiciously like Callie’s: http://www.fly-by-night.net/blublankie.jpg

    Sadly, I lost my beautiful girl last week to a heart tumor.

  17. The spice must flow.

  18. Ah, Lola, you beat me to it!

    The spice extends life, the spice expands consciousness, etc.

  19. I scratch kitty AND puppy faces with my mouse. Puppy faces more, though! ^_^

  20. Michelle – What a beautiful pup. I am so sorry for your loss.

  21. Michelle – My heart breaks for you. That pic is lovely.

  22. Kitty wants to stay in bed!

  23. Hey, those eyes look photoshopped. The cat’s right pupil seems to extend up over the eyelid…


  24. Michelle, was your girl an Australian Shepherd?

    I had an Aussie/Border Collie mix that looked almost exactly like your girl! Sadly, I also lost her earlier this year. I’m so sorry for your loss, and so happy that you were in her life to give her the love that she needed!

  25. The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice is vital to space travel. The Spacing Guild and its navigators, who the spice has mutated over 4000 years, use the orange spice gas, which gives them the ability to fold space. That is, travel to any part of the universe without moving. Oh, yes. I forgot to tell you. The spice exists on only one planet in the entire universe. A desolate, dry planet with vast deserts. Hidden away within the rocks of these deserts are a people known as the Fremen, who have long held a prophecy that a man would come, a messiah, who would lead them to true freedom. The planet is Arrakis, also known as Dune.

    Green yeem! (If I’d posted this earlier, it could have been “bleen green yeem”…)

  27. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    May the paws be with you.

  28. Yet Another Michelle says:

    Michelle, so sorry for your loss…

    I have a Boston Terrierist that has a love affair with blanket snugglin’…he will fluff the blankies, nuzzle them with his nose, get them just right and the jsut stand there with this mind-meld look until I “assume the snuggle position”. He has to be on my left side, under prepared blankie…with his nose pressed against some part of my body…

  29. Agreed, this picture has definitely been photoshopped. Definitely cute, but I wish C.O. would differentiate between real and fake when they post.

  30. Thanks everyone for the kind words. My dog was, indeed an Australian Shepherd. Here’s a picture of her without her blankie: http://www.fly-by-night.net/littleblue2.jpg

    And yes, that particular image of my dog has been photoshopped. Speaking of photoshop, I looked closely at the large version of the cat photo, and it does not look photoshopped to me. Sometimes high contrast areas or flash reflections of digital images will appear a bit wonky when compressed. But the photographer of that image can probably confirm it better than I could. Never could quite understand the point of photoshop conspiracists, but yeah.

  31. Didn’t think I was crazy…

    I’m all: who put the funky electro-green pumpkin seeds into kitty-kitty’s eye sockets?

    Was about to call ‘shenanigans’!

  32. Book_monstercats says:

    I have been thinking about suggesting a cat-egory (geddit??) called “Blankies” (which could include towels of much fabulousness)since so much of CO revolves around them – and quite right too.


  33. This is the funniest post I’ve seen so far on this site. I love it.

  34. My cat’s full name is Obi Wan Nairobi. For reals. Oh, and she is a ninja.

  35. Ah, Meg, you are brilliant not only for your ability to pick cute images, but to distill them down into the perfect caption. This Star Wars homage made me squirt coffee out my nose from laughing. And make coworkers gather around my desk in concern that I might suffering some kind of attack.

  36. …. SUCH a photoshop job. See how the green goes over the bottom edge of the eye? Bah.

  37. And what’s with the spice comments? Spice is from Frank Herbert’s Dune… NOT Star Wars at all. The effects of it was to turn the white of the eyes blue, NOT change the iris colour. People… get it right.

  38. Lainey? It’s only a blog. No need to get quite so worked up.

    BookMonster — um, the rollovers are definitely there… pretty much anytime I see one that doesn’t have a title tag already explicitly set by Meg, I take the liberty.

  39. may the force be with you, obi kitteh!

  40. OMG it's Carrie - Be scared. says:

    oh honestly – the entire CO is photoshopped! None of it is what you think it is.

    pretty kitty eyes, and I can’t imagine how you’d photoshop those eyes, and I photoshop for a living! They look like lime green opals!

    I wanted to correct the poster who said they were hyp-no-tized… what they mean to say is that they were hyp-MO-tized!

  41. are the glowie-eyes photo shopped?
    my cats eyes have never come out looking like that in a photo, maybe red, but never “glowing green”.

  42. One Eyed Daruma says:

    Shopped. Not shopped. Who cares…kitty is still all snuggledy cute. I bet even the whirr of a can opener wouldn’t trigger an exit from that fuzzy blankie.

  43. headscratcher says:

    Ah, there be people who must needs to find complaint with everything.

    Star Wars

    Some folks is needink teh hobby. Cause none of it really matters in the end. When you reach the great beyond, you won’t be asked how you did on your uber ability to spot photoshopping on pictures of cute animals or your extant knowledge of Dune.

  44. Star Dune Trek Aliens!

  45. headscratcher says:

    Now THAT’S a show I’d watch! But they’d best have some photoshopped kittehs.

  46. Depend on it.

  47. headscratcher says:

    Photoshopped Alien Spice Dealing Force Welding Kittehs! With light sabers in place of the dew claw. Who talk like Chewbacca and can do whatever the hell it was Q did.

  48. Cause trouble, basically. Very cat when you think about it.

  49. (Speaking of which, we should throw some Red Dwarf in there too.)

  50. headscratcher says:

    Of course Red Dwarf! And some Doctor Who, that phone booth thing. That’s how the Photoshopped Alien Spice Dealing Force Welding Kittehs get from point A to point B.

  51. “That phone booth thing”???
    -5 nerd cred! I sentence you back to the future.

  52. headscratcher says:

    I spent the halacon days of my youth focused on RPGs. Ask me about Rifts. I’ll get my nerd creed back I tells ya!

  53. don’t forget Ice Pirates
    lol *snerk*

  54. Is forbidden to steal hotel towels please.

  55. Do I get the nerd cred if I name it? TARDIS, TARDIS, TARDIS! I could tell you what it means, too, but perhaps I’ve revealed enough.

  56. OMG! It's CARRIE says:

    CAN I have a nerd credit for Tardis?

  57. “spent”?

    i didn’t discover my first RPG until i was in my, uh, early 20s

    now i’m *BLEEN* years old and working on FFXII and I’m a girl

    *scoops up all the nerd creds and runs* ^^

  58. Ah, I thought of the “spice must flow” lolcats too. Good job guys, I’m proud of your lolcat knowledge.

    Lainey, it’s not about Star Wars at all. It’s about Internet memes. Get it right yourself. :b


  59. Princess Leia pup…Chewbacca dog…Ewok pooch…Obi Meow Catobi.

    What’s next…Darth Hamster?

  60. headscratcher says:

    NYGirly…I’m a girl too. 🙂 Which made me ever popular in the RPG circle…cause I’m like, a girl! LOOK!!!! A GIRL!!!! WHO WANTS TO HANG OUT WITH US!

    I still rpg, only online now rather than old school table top.

  61. Pheas, you evil, evil bastard.

  62. OHHH snaps for the Dr. Who reference. I wonder if my cats would hold still enough for a Dalek costume…

  63. Mary (the first) says:

    I thought I was kind of a nerd (although an old one) but have no clue what the heck is an RPG. ?? can someone tell me??

  64. headscratcher says:

    Role Playing Game. Like Dungeons and Dragons.

  65. 1) Rocket-Propelled Grenade
    2) Really Popular Girl
    3) Role-Playing Game
    4) [your turn]

  66. er yeah. HeadScratcher’s quick on the draw today.

  67. headscratcher says:

    That’s because I’m avoiding work.

  68. i meant to put *BLEEP* (not bleen grrr).


    and RPGs have totally evolved passed Dungeons and Dragons.

    RPGs include everything from the console-based Final Fantasy series to the multiplayer online-based World of Warcraft and everything in between.

    i admit to being a nerd, but i’m not a dorQ. jeez :/

    if by “table top” you mean console games, they are far from ol’ skool, esp. with their online capabilities.

    aside: wut u tink of SecondLife, btw?

  69. book_monstercats says:

    Thanks, Theo, they definitely weren’t there when I tried today and it’s one of the highlights of my day (piteous look). Glad to hear you’re always on the case. Also VERY glad to learn you’re a Red Dwarf fan. Is it the UK version, or have you developed your own? UK-Lister is a fellow Liverpudlian, so now you know what I sound like in full flow (well, not really, but if I really try….)

  70. 4. reely peeg gerbuhl

  71. headscratcher says:

    Table Top. As in sitting around in a group in someone’s basement with a paper character sheet and a handful of dice while a ‘Game Master’ or ‘Dungeon Master’ runs the adventure. D20 anyone? 🙂

    THAT is what I mean by old skool. Dungeons and Dragons. Rifts. 🙂

    I know that there are a variety of different formats for gaming, my husband plays Diablo II for example. I have personally taken to combining the RPG and creative writing in Yahoogroups. Mainly Vampire the Masquerade (Vampire the Requiem has peeved me by removing my bery favourite clan) and some which combine books/rpgs/tv shows & movies to great effect.

  72. don’tcha mean world of war crack?
    Or World of War Quest. LOL (still giggling at those foxtrot comics)

  73. silly gamers… Lost everyone else along the way…. back to the cutest obi wan catobi. with magnetic green eyes. HE is all I pwnd the couch and the throw. Bugger off you plebian human slave and bring me my Tuna

  74. world of war crack BAHAHAHAHA!
    *pees a little*

    check it:

  75. Was this cute photo ‘shopped? Whether or not you think it was or care, I hope you’ll take a moment to take a closer look. I hear people say “it’s photoshopped” often enough that it starts to get old. I’ve wanted to do this for a while, so thought I would take a few moments to break this particular photo down for you:


  76. NotSupposedToBeDoingThisATWork(ButNowI'mHome) says:

    Nice work, Michelle! (I’m assuming that it’s correct as I know almost nothing about photoshopping images, but it’s very logically explained.)

    Anyway, it’s a pretty darn cute picture! And awesome Star Wars ref.

  77. oaklandcat says:

    Well Michelle has me beat with her evidence.
    I was just gonna post a pic of my kitteh with a similar glowing green effect (and I don’t even *have* photoshop). The red glow is more common but the green happens too. At least it does if your cat is cool like mine.


  78. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    Could it be the nictitating membrance,that protects the eye.

  79. I *still* ♥ Fly-By-Night Michelle.

    Peeps, see also: http://teho.vox.com/library/photos/tags/eyebeams/
    (one of those IS digitally retouched; can you spot it?) (just *one* photo!)

    Hon. Gladys — nah, it’s all about the reflective retinas and light “blooming” effects.

  80. *raises hand & jumping up & down*
    oooooh I know I know!

    LOL tis easy!

    [well I *hope* so… – Ed.]

  81. http://photo.ringo.com/204/204784812O505477513.jpg
    Here’s another good example.
    Not re-touched in any way only cause I’m not technically savy enough to do so. lol

  82. Metz — perfect example of light bloom, there. The reflected glare of the flash makes the pupils look even larger than the eye sockets.

  83. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    Theo, I just like saying nictitating.;)

  84. Well yeah!


  85. Shannon Johnson says:

    Use The Force!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! May the force be with you.

  86. nictitating sounds dirty.

  87. Lewd behavior with a cigarette?

  88. Blueberry says:

    I mean Hypnocat

  89. ROFLMAO Lewd behavior with a cigarette.

    Oh my gawsh!
    I’ll never look at my smokes the same way again.

  90. Probably for the best.

  91. yeah I was thinking the same thing. I figured I was opening myself up for major attacks (all in love of course) for openly admitting that I smoke.
    (bad-bad metz!)

    I need motivation.
    Maybe a breathalyzer that only lets me on CO and other happy fun sites if I’m smoke free.
    (hmmmmm, any marketing geniuses out there?)

  92. This reminds me of ET on the bike in the sky!!!
