Ready for game as hat-warmer

The ballpark can get really cold.

I shall seet on your shoulders and be your personal warmer valet.

Licks cost extry.


I’m throwing a yellow card at your kitteh, Tom G.!



  1. I’ll pay extra!

  2. berthaslave says:

    Bleen! That is uber-cute!

  3. Call me crazy, but that looks much more like a Red Sox cap than a SF Giants cap.

    Go Red Sox!

  4. Is me or does he have the same “what’s wrong now” expression of that peeing ferret?

    I’d suggest checking the hat before you put it on.

  5. I dunno, yankeebird, that looks like Giant orange on my monitor.

    And, um, how much is a lick?

  6. “Hi! Where’s the mainsail?”

  7. Christine H says:

    Do you charge for cuddles, hat warmer?

  8. Really? On my computer it looks like red on a navy blue hat. How strange. Maybe I’m just seeing what I want to see.

  9. he’s auditioning for parts in matchingks threads with the sheep-pup in the tin-pan

  10. See, what did I tell you? That’s what you get for leaving your hat on the floor! It doesn’t take long for a grey fuzzball the size of a *fist* to show up inside it!

  11. Will you take payment in advance so I can get uninterrupted cuddles and licks?

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

    That widdle kitteh is just the sweetest puff-ball of fur. She’s all “take me wiff yewww”. : )

  13. kitteh says:
    donut forget my nachos `n cheese–i’ll wait here

  14. snoopysnake says:

    That is not a Red Sox hat. However, kittehs do prefer the Red Sox over all other baseball teams. Period.

  15. NYgirl — now I’m picturing the hat full of goopy nachos (and kitten nomming it headfirst, Garfield-style)

  16. Giants kitteh needs to rebuild her ballclub.

  17. My kittehs do not prefer the Red Sox. Only when they’re playing the Yankees.

  18. PS “Yankeebird” rooting for Red Sox?

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

    COME ON, ALREADY!!! You know that cats of all kinds, including widdle puff-balls of fur, prefer the Detroit TIGERS!!! (because tigers are cats too in case you didn’t get it!)

  20. My kittehs like the pinstrips of the yankees uniforms not to mention joe torres voice. That cute kitteh covered in nacho cheese sauce and chips makes me want some for breakfast …….but I won’t eat kitteh though I’ll give it a bath and nap the day away.

  21. I have credit for some licks……where do I swipe it?

    Catman Dude:

    Being a Michigander, I must say that our home is a Tigers home…..beyond the foolish hometown pride, however, maybe some kittehs would be too embarrassed to root for the Tigers……um, and the Lions…..

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

    Well, de kittees shouldn’t be too embarrassed to meow for the Tigers since they played in the World Series last year and doing alright this year. The Lions, er, you got a point there (but they did win the first game!)

  23. WOOHOO!!! I always wanted to meet the cat in the hat!!!

  24. Yitzysmommie says:

    Well. This nonbaseball fan could certainly buck up and attend a game if accompanied by this hat and ball o’ fluff!

  25. “picking me up
    now pleeezzze”

  26. Meg- are you British? What’s the deal with the phrase “sender-inner”? I don’t understand sayings like “shall seet”- is that supposed to be “sit” ??-and kitteh & puppeh- is it that hard to just type kitty or puppy? That’s what they’re called her in the US !! Can we abolish the ridiculous (not redonkulous) or whatever you say & write, and just continue to put up adorable pictures of pet & other animals?

  27. John Salmon says:

    CO should only feature cute dogs and cats…young, old, or otherwise. The other stuff creeps me out.

    That is all.

  28. Zoinkers! Dana’s gonna get it! I shall seet back and watch the redonkulousness fly. Anerable Steadfast Loyal COheads Unite!

    Puddin anyone??

  29. “BYE BYE Dana.”
    “see ya later.”
    “dont let the door hit ya in the ass on your way out.”
    “have a nice day.”
    “see ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya.”
    “I know you are but what am I.”
    “joy kill.”
    “eat me.”

  30. Dana — trying to jack the register at a cop bar might also be a dumb idea.

  31. Hey! I was at the Giants game and I didn’t get one of these. NO FAIR! I want a refund! Or a kitteh, yeah, a kitteh

  32. YOu are cute!!!

  33. Um, yeah. I don’t think dissin’ Meg is a really good idea.
    *sits back with big bowl of puddin and just waits*

    Dana- If you can’t handle the cute, get out of the Overload!

  34. Oh, and Liz and Theo, you rock (or rawk, or ur awesum or any other variant spelling you might prefer). That is all.

  35. 🙂

  36. BugMom — well put… it *is* kinda right in the name, isn’t it?

  37. Yummm this must be the new ice cream flavor at the ball park. Kitten fluff in hat bowls. I will take two please.

    Morning Bugmom 🙂

  38. Theo: “jack the register at a cop bar” What is an awesome visual. Well said!

    [it’s actually a movie reference, but for the life of me I can’t remember WHICH movie… – Ed.]

  39. Huh. Has anyone else noticed that the person complaining about the spelling on this site (:D) has some interesting views on spelling and punctuation? Typical.

    My kitties, for the record, don’t really care for baseball. They like football and basketball, and they root for the Iowa Hawkeyes. Naturally.

  40. Whoops, I didn’t mean to start any baseball rivalry here. I just honestly thought it was a Sox cap.

    And yes, Theresa, “yankeebird” is NOT a Yankees fan. The nickname came about because I’m American, not because of the Evil Empire.

  41. …Microsoft?

  42. Pearl Ostroff says:

    CO is what it is. The unconventional spelling and the occasionally very odd post (sock sweaters, Japanese robot pets, etc.) are what make it CO. I love not knowing quite what to expect when I wait for the site to open.

  43. Peg of Tilling says:

    Go Mets! “My Entire Team Squees”

  44. Just one question for Dana… would you prefer to be the Pot or the Kettle?

  45. I wanna be the FIRE.

  46. Everyone’s diggin’ on Dana (who obviously doesn’t peruse this site often. Also doesn’t know much about Britains…kitteh is british? Crazy) but right below her is this one:

    “CO should only feature cute dogs and cats…young, old, or otherwise. The other stuff creeps me out.

    That is all.

    Posted by: John Salmon”

    I can’t for the life of me figure it out. Crazy peoples.

    Oh–and cute kitteh!

  47. Leann — sounds tongue-in-cheek to me. And if it wasn’t, meh, who cares?

  48. besides.
    john’s comment was not a direct assault on our leader. (insert giggling here)
    Dana’s was.
    No Mercy.
    No excuses. 🙂

    Yep- Cute kitty!

  49. Okay, that makes sense. I saw Dana on another thread too. Seems to me like a Troll, otherwise why be so persistant on the boards. Silly nuffs, when will they learn? Don’t mess with CO and the power of the cute!

  50. ThreeCatNight says:

    I’d much rather have kitteh as my own personal cheek-warmer, and then we could put our heads together.
    The little guy is adorable!

  51. you guys r silly says:


  52. The expression on this kitteh’s (note correct spelling) face is all, “I’m practicing for my Hallmark Cards adorable modeling shot” — classic!

  53. Yitzysmommie says:

    Dana, Dana, Dana. You are tewtally REEdiculous. Part of CO’s anerability is its prosh talkies.
    If you don’t like eet, pleese but(‘tocks) out.
    Thank Yew.
    Ize in yr CO stirrin yer potz.

  54. ThisIsNotSubtle says:

    Wait, wait if CuteSpeak is British, what does that make LOLCat? Australian? 😉

    [I was thinking German… because, y’know, I looked it up and that’s where Hamburg is, so presumably Cheezburg must be there too… so… yeah. There you have it. – Ed.]
    [ ]

  55. Yitzysmommie says:

    Thank you.
    Good bye.

  56. Yitzysmommie:
    Laugh out-freakin loud!!! Get ’em!

  57. OMG! It's Carrie (not Dana thank goodness) says:

    wow – someone with an even bigger mouf than I’s gots.

    I wanna say things, but I won’t

  58. OMG! It's Carrie (not Dana thank goodness) says:

    Oh, if Meg were a Brit, it’d be Moggies, not Kittehs.

    [bang on – Ed.]

  59. Linguists have traced Cutespeak to the island of Prosh, off the coast of Anerable. It is a Pidgin langwich.

  60. I thot it was a Pigeon langwich?

    (cooo cooo cooo)

    Kitteh is anerable! I would have to leave my hat behind to serve as a kitn bed rather than disturb this floof and put it on.

  61. Theresa — that’s LOLspeak you’re thinking of… CO has Snorglish. They’re related, but not the same. No indeed. (wut we has heer… is can be faelyur… to c’mooneekayt)

  62. “Barry Bonds awoke one morning from a troubled dream to find he had been transformed into a flooffy leetle tabby kitteh.”

  63. Kitty watches ball fly out of stadeum.
    Announcer::: Yes folks we got a home run hit there. look out people in the parking lot. No question about it a HOME RUN!!!!!!

  64. Teho, when I was in grad school, I always enjoyed trips in the elevator, listening to advanced-studies jargon from all the departments in the building. The linguists had the best jargon, hands down.

  65. Theresa — one for you, then (not *exactly* safe for work, but heck, they’re stick figures)


  67. Flufferpuff! (My comments are always so dumb, but I can’t help it. That’s a flufferpuff)

  68. Oh my gawsh. That is soooo squeezable.

  69. yanno, if ya start mixing kitteh wif nacho cheese sauce in a hat you got yourself some crazy stew

    i see how ya are o_0

    it’s all clear to me now

    *stifles giggle*

  70. Why do you think they call them catchers? It´s an age-old trick. Hide a well-clawed cat in your cap. Catch the ball. Pass ball by cap. Voila: the unhittable catball.

  71. Yellow card?!?!

    There’s no yellow cards in baseball!!!

  72. I think Meg knows that- she just loves throwin those yellow cards 🙂

  73. Kittehs like the CARDINALS! For heaven’s sakes.

  74. One of my cats started watching football when she found out that Bill Parcells was known as “The Big Tuna.”

  75. Hmmmm…sports…kittehs…yeah, that’s right…I’m thinking Puppy Bowl, AND Kitteh Halftime.

  76. If this is the kitteh halftime show, I think we might be looking at a wardrobe malfunction.

  77. Zees kitteh ees redonkulously anerable…if I can’t type it like that, it’s not even half the fun…thanks Meg, Teho, and the countless others who have added vastly to my cute-cabulary. I luuuurve you all!

  78. That’s no CRYING in baseball.

    Baseball has *everything else*– laughing, wailing, gnashing of teeth, screaming, yellow cards, red cards, chartreuse cards, puppies and kittens, and praying mantises.

    Just no crying.

    BTW, tomorrow night, September 14, is DOG NIGHT at Shea Stadium. Lots of cute pups at the ballpark! What could be better!

  79. Dale–
    So you’re saying Mike Scott of the Astros had a KITTEN in his cap?

  80. Dana and John
    Sitting in a Tree

    Srsly, sum peeps wouldn’t recognize fun if it danced naked wearing nothing but this hat and kitteh…

  81. LoL CBF!!!

  82. Hey! Never had to prove I’m not a robot before posting. Whasupwitdat?

  83. Well, Bugmom, are you a robot?
    Or perhaps, a zombie? These things must be thoroughly established.

  84. Your Nom-de-cyber suggests that you may, indeed, be a zombie. Here at CO, we have a strict policy which deems zombies to be inappropriate and bad form.
    ( I say we all talk like elite snobby wordsmiths and really confuze Dana!)

  85. NotSupposedToBeDoingThisAtWork says:

    Theresa with the Kafka ref FTW!! lololol!

    kitteh flavr puddin’?? in a hat bowl?? yummz!

  86. Well, I know I’m NOT a zombie and happily, not a Troll. I have always been assured I’m a real live person, but wouldn’t that be what the robots want me to think?!?!?

  87. NotSupposedToBeDoingThisAtWork says:

    p.s. do we think Dana visits ICHC? if she (he?) can’t pick up Snorglish, she must have all sorts of trouble with LOLspeak…

  88. CBF, I’m scared.
    It hasn’t asked me to verify since that one time……no weird letters and numbers to type……maybe I’ll be ok!

  89. CBF– Blackadder ref!

    MSTBDTAW– Kafka AND MLB! Closer than anyone supposed.

    Myself, I thought of the standard ballpark treat of about a half-gallon of ice cream in a miniature batting helmet. Kitten flavor ice cream.

    Also reminded of the Standard BallPark Promotion that I made up, like Bat Night or Seat Cushion Day, but sillier and rather scatological. Whenever my brother and I watch a game together, and they promote a “Day” or “Night,” we do our own promo for our rather disgusting “Night” which I won’t tell you, and crack ourselves up laughing. We love baseball. 😉

  90. Theresa, uhhh, yeah, Blackadder ref, Uh yeah. I’m super cool and all that.
    (Ok, whas Blackadder..I’ve no idea…)

  91. NSTBDTAW. Not puddin in a hat ice cream in a hat.. (Fluffy Kitteh Flavored)At least here in Californ eye a, we have these really cute hat bowls at the ball parks(Stadiums) that they put ice cream into at least they usta.

  92. You didden *know* you had a Blackadder ref?

    (Blackadder: )

    I thought you were riffing on, “Baldrick, you wouldn’t know a cunning plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord singing ‘Cunning plans are here again’.”

  93. “You always were a cunning linguist, James…” [sees M] “…don’t ask.”
    M: “Don’t tell.”

  94. Teho– to bring it back to baseball, about a week ago, my Metsies were playing the Reds, who brought in a relief pitcher named Jon Coutlangus. The call went like this:

    Gary Cohen (play-by-play guy): The new Reds pitcher is Jon Coutlangus.

    Keith Hernandez (extremely loopy ex-jock commentator): Oh my.

    Gary: It’s *very* carefully pronounced.

    Keith: It’s a tongue-twister, isn’t it?

    (LOOONG silence)

  95. That’s beautiful.

    (PS — My sister was born in Cincinnati; I grew up listening to Reds games.)
    (Back when they were winning a World Series or two.)

  96. Baroo??? I think we should all seet on Dana! Just kidding.

    This kitty clearly wants her own hat. Or maybe she just stole this hat and now it’s her new bed.

  97. NotSupposedToBeDoingThisAtWork(ButNowI'mHome) says:

    akshuly, i know it’s ice cream in the hats… i was just tryna bring in the special CO puddin’… i’m just not so good at the humor some days. i think i’m coming down with a cold….X(

  98. “Ah, Captain, there’s ahhhhh tribble in my genuine Earth-That-Was ballcap. I’ve got a bad feeling about this.”

    Just effing with the sci-fi references, there, peeps, since I know bugger-all about baseball.

  99. Aside from baseball or creeps named Dana…that kitteh has the most anerable blue eyes! Soooooo cute!

  100. Dana has voiced her concerns on another thread, been referred to the Glossary by His Theo-ness and chastised thoroughly (and apologized nicely). All is well, peeps. Shall we now let her be?
