    My first neelb (sorry Teho *shifty eyes*) and for a marmie-tortie combo, too! (2 of my favorite flaverzzzzz)

  3. Londoner says:

    Don’t cross the kitties.
    It would be bad.
    I’m fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, “bad”?
    Try to imagine every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of cuteness!

  4. heh
    a local Thai place has “drunken noodles”.
    I had no idea they were referring to kittehs.

  5. SayYesh says:

    Marmie crossing. Nohmnohmnohm.

  6. hon glad says:

    Shove up guys, I’m joining you, Zzzz.

  7. I LOVE the idea of naming a cat “Noodles.” Not only is this kitten beige and somewhat semolina-colored, but he is also all SOFT and DRAPE-ABLE and ostensibly WIGGLY and NOM NOM NOM to the NOM.

    Also “Noodles” is a funny, funny word.

  8. Awww, the tortie looks like my big baby Brontë when she was a wee one. Now she could probably eat this noodle up!

  9. They’ve been felled by their own cuteness.

  10. ThreeCatNight says:

    More like MSG’d Moggies to me!

  11. I love torties! It reminds me of my baby t home.

  12. Marianne says:

    that’s so funny! my bff’s cat just had kittens and two of them match these two cats almost exactly! there’s the orange one and the tortoise shell one.


    Part of the reason I luf thees site so much ees the capshuns.

    Bravo bravo!

  14. If I ever start a band, it will be called the Narcoleptic Noodles. Thanks!


    Seriously, brain splody.

  16. the softness
    it takes me over
    the edge
    into the cute
    of no return

    fuzzy whiskers
    whispering purrs
    i am lost
    in the cute
    of no return

  17. My new work computer wallpaper! So adorabuhls.

  19. Juniper Jupiter says:


    I never thought I’d say this, but this may be the first time the caption and description almost outcuted the corresponding pic!!

    I said “almost”!

    Nom nom nom!!

  20. LOL only kitties can sleep like this and be comfortable…Only Kitties!

    Metz Bravo!!!!

  21. Ermine_Violin says:

    and now – live from Buffalo the Narcoleptic Kitten Noodles!!!!

    I agree – great band name, but then again, I’ve always liked the thought of a band called Spiderman’s Pants….

  22. The orange! It’s contagious!

  23. riolinda says:

    this makes me want to go back to bed .. i’ll be taking the soft fuzzy kitties with me!

  24. Nicolletta says:

    *snuggles with bebeh kitties*

  25. *gasp* I *gasp* can barely breathe *gasp* for the tortieness.

    *falls unconscious to the floor*

  26. Beautiful poem, Metz.

    And Meg…just stop it with the marmies, okay? I am having MAJOR jonesing for a marmie kitten and these pics aren’t helping. If I see one in real life we’re gonna end up with another critter in this house!

  27. meowandwoof says:

    my dear berthaservant…you say that like it’s a bad thing.

  28. M&W — even the happiest of head asploshunz leave one without a head.

  29. caitlin says:

    n’awwwwwww. *wibbles*

    …pass the dipping sauce, will ya?

  30. Evurrii dai ai wayk up thinkin “It can’t GET any Qter!” an it DUZ.

  31. Rachel Sweeden says:

    The two kitteh’s are adorable.

  32. A marmie and a tortie, my faves, I am all splody. They must be brother and sister, so when they’re awake, they’re rompingks.

    wif the little pawz and toez, and spiky fur and fuzzy tummies!

    wibble wibble NOM NOM NOM

  33. leah b. says:

    I will naps with them too so ty-ty too. I wantz one of each in my house too!!!
    But I’m afriad my 19 year old kitteh girl would not approve. She is the Queen of this castle .

  34. Such delectabuhl softnesses! My nose is itching to bury itself in the furs. And by the way, great day for kitty bellehs!

  35. Berthaservant, just do it. You know you want to. And Bertha would love the company. She’d also contrast quite beautifully with a marmie.

  36. sunnymum says:

    Besides the incredibly adorable pose of these bebehs, the pinkness of marmie’s nose, mouth and jelly beans is keeling me! And, is that an outdoor welcome type of mat they are lying on?

  37. @Londoner: lol at the ghostbusters reference, nicely done 🙂 oh, and: awwwwwww!!!! wittle seepy kitties 🙂

  38. Katrina says:

    I wonder if Scarlett Johannsen likes marmelade cats?

  39. sweetpea says:

    One lovely spoonful of tortielini, perhaps (and then some Marmilaid)

  40. ashagato says:

    lol fegli 😉

    that marmie bebeh’s axis-of-snorgling is so…vulnerable…so…irresistable…i can’t stand it!

  41. Yitzysmommie says:

    I think the look on the marmie’s face is the definische of contentment. No need for words.

  42. Great. Just great. My favourite Tibetan noodle place has shut down for the summer and now I’m having a major craving for thukpa with puréed chilli.

    Thanks, Meg.


  43. Eee! They remind me so much of my two little kitteh sisters – the other is a marmie and the other a tortie, and when they were itty bitty they always slept next to (and on top of) each other in a tiny ball of baby-fluff! Like so:

  44. Londoner says:

    Thanks Bastet. Always nice to be noticed by the Goddess… 🙂

    Riika – massively cute pic of your babies.

  45. charliewabba says:

    I have an epileptic Noodle. She’s a dilute tortie.
    And she’s quite delish.

  46. Katrina says:

    OK, I’ll bite- (har-har), what is thukpa with or without puréed chilli, Subhangi?
    Maybe someone can help you make it?

  47. The red kitty looks just like mine when he was little… 🙂

  48. Don’t tease me, Katrina. (Besides, I’ve moved on to Kristin Chenoweth).

    [Wasn’t she one of the original cast members of “Wicked”? – Ed.]

    Bertha, actually, isn’t too fond of other cats, so that’s the big stall on the new kitty. But we shall see.

  49. Chef Steph says:

    Eeep! A tortie!! I’m in love!

  50. Yes, Teho. She was the original Glinda. But my crush extends back to her Tony-winning turn as Sally in “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown.” If anyone knows her, please introduce me.

  51. Theo Thanks for the Url… Yumm Vegitarian and Gluten free my two pre requisites Can’t wait to try it out.

  52. Totalee Puppy says:

    Thinking about my favorite noodle dish, maybe I could name one kitten “Pad Thai” and the other one “Peanuts”? Puréed chili optional…
    Wubbable kittens…”I’m all out of wub…what am I widout you…?” (Yes, I do sound like Elmer Fudd…)

  53. Frankie says:

    They are so FLOPTIOUS! They remind me of what my friend Eric says about my gray long-haired (dust puff) Lulu: “She has bones but isn’t using them at the moment…”

  54. Katrina says:

    Thank you Theo- you have a remarkable command of the Internet. Thank you.
    Now, Berthaservant, about this Chenoweth thing, (you seem a bit fickle, but I do admire your taste).
    Ms. C. has major Broadway credits to her name and I am told that she is a doll to work with. Your newest crush has a lot going for her. I didn’t mean to tease you any more than the nice writer who was taunting-yes, I’m afraid taunting is the word to use here, about the Marmie kitten.
    Best of luck in your K.C. crush and, to be honest, she could do a WHOLE lot worse from what I have witnessed. I’ll see what I can do. I wonder if She likes puddy-tats? I bet she does. I wonder if she likes Grad students-aw, who doesn’t? She travels a lot, though, remember that.

  55. Totalee Puppy says:

    A courtier to Her Gracious
    Majesty…”I do love court intrique…”
    Envious of all the admirers for Lady Katrina,
    Totalee Puppy makes a petulant remark. A word,
    a smile from Lady Katrina are to be cherished…and don’t you forget it, Bub!!

  56. These babies make me want to give them a BIG SMOOCH!!!!!!!!!
