When this small Mom cat had eight bébés, things soon became Flesh Pile Central™. THAT is some overload, my Friends.


Maria C., I pity the kitteh



  1. Danielle says:

    Oh, they look so soft and pettable! !

  2. Poohbear says:

    Eight’s the limit! (8 tittehs for 8 kittehs) Ehn-ehn-ehn!!!

  3. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

    Want. Kitteh. Now.

  4. binky-mama says:

    Want to face-plant in kitteh pile.

  5. Poohbear says:

    Calicos rule! Hope momma is getting lots of feedingks and TLC. Hard job!

  6. cheesybird says:

    Uh oh…

    I think I just squeeeeeeeed myself.

  7. hon glad says:

    I want to put my hand into the soft warmth.

  8. This is my favourite CO day: Pictures of cute animals in piles. I so want to put my face close to all that squirmyness and listen to the little squeaks. Awww.

  9. OMG! What an amazing pile!

    I totally agree with Janni.

    Keep the Cutepiles coming.

  10. Victoria says:

    very cute, but please spay and neuter your pets. where will all these kitties go?

  11. Victoria, they’ll go to me (hopefully!!)
    Poor mamakitteh

  12. I want to jump into one of those ball pits, full of these kittens…

  13. AHAHA!! How about that one that’s standing behind the mother, leaning over for the drink? 🐱

  14. my what a fertal kitteh, never seen quite a mass of furballs (lots a pun intented)

  15. That’s not a flesh pile, that’s a Fur Pile! A Cute Pile!! Purr Central!! 🙂

    I really need to scan in the old Polaroids now of the time when we had eighteen kittens all at once. All three mommas nursed each other’s kitties – our adult male wasn’t sure what to make of all the little ones all at once. Of course pre-teen me wanted to keep them all, but we found the kittens good homes. {Goes off to snuggle her two fur babies}

  16. Holy kittenpile. I hope Dad Cat has a good job.

  17. dharlan1too says:

    “These kids are sucking the life out of me!”

  18. How did she fit all of them in there?!? She’s a Tardis Kitteh!

  19. Meep Heap!

    (that’s what a fur pile is called around our house)

  20. Stargate reference! ha!

  21. @Lurker: TARDIS kitteh?!?! OMG! You have slain me!


  23. OMgoodness….the pile of kittehs had me so overwhelmed at first that I didnt even notice Momma kitteh. Poor Momma Kitteh, we think we have it hard but (most of us) only have one bebbeh at a time not 8 in one night!

  24. Toss a few bunnehs on that pile, a pup or two, and mebbe some wee stoatage, and you’ve got hehvuns.

  26. chanpon says:

    Mom cat: “HALP!!”

    More like fur-pile. I want them all.

  27. Oh, to be on the bottom of that pile….all warm and snuggly!

  28. meacu1pa says:


    The Meep heap is good, too. [Why yes, yes it is… – Ed.]

    Just look at the one all-black kitteh. Our very own black sheep. nomnom.

  29. lol! oh man I didn’t even see the mother cat under there… thought it was all bebehs <3

  30. Ahn…

  31. You know, I’d be more than willing to babysit. I’ll even feed ’em and put ’em to bed. Won’t charge but bathing will be extra.

    PS – What’s with the ghost of Bob Barker haunting Qte lately? Yes, I realize he’s still alive but it seems like every other pic is a PSA.

  32. At first I read Juliet’s as: “PLEASE SPRAY YOUR CATS AND DOGS!”
    me:”with what?? ohhh…”
    […with *flocking*, natch! – Ed.]

    still very cute, regardless of one’s views on population control


  34. As I drooled over this beautiful kitten pile, my kitten climbed on the computer and started pawing at the screen!

    I wish I had my camera at that moment.

    I’d love to grab a snorkle and just dive right in to that squeeky furry pile!

  35. Brak_Silverbone says:

    That’s one patient momma cat!

  36. …that’s one EXHAUSTED momma cat, I’d say.

  37. Victoria says:

    What do you mean “regardless of one’s views on population control”? I didn’t realize there was debate on the fact that MILLIONS of cats and dogs are euthanized every year in animal shelters. Maybe you didn’t get the memo, but when the people that get to jab cats with needles and feel their bodies go limp look at this pile, they know that 1/2 of them will end up with FIP, FIV, on the street, and eventually in our dread chambers at the shelter with a free ride to the landfill in the back of the animal control truck.

  38. Nomsday says:

    Yeah… and in other news, there’s this picture of cute kitties.

  39. littleword says:

    🙂 The pregnant kitty we rescued at work had 7… and it was just this cute! We had 8 weeks of awesome kitteh piles! (all 7 adopted by terrific forever parents)

  40. Yitzysmommie says:

    Awwwwww. That is precious. All is well in the universe as i look at this pic.

  41. Puddle of Squeeee, I call this!!!

  42. Kaitou Juliet says:

    I just want to make it clear that I’m not the one who posted the “spay” comment above. I don’t mind a few animals having litters if it leads to pictures like this! 😀
