Cute Overload :D
What what whaaat [double-take]
I call "Shenanigans" Mariah K.!
tis some sort of puddlecat
Kitteh Shmoo(tm) – is there such a thing?
I have one of those fake kitten things.. friend gave it to me. I don’t let my cats see it though.
I think it’s real – and I want it!
Don’t buy this please!! its made with real fur!
And they say it’s fur of rabbits but we think it’s fur of cat, dog from chinese.
My doctor has one of those “battery-powered” kittens and I love it! It’s almost as soft as my real kitty, Zora (but obviously not nearly as cute!:P ).
@psygirl, now it makes sense why the one my doc has is almost as soft as my own kitty! Bleh!
I wish I could melt into a pool of fluff onto my desk. Lucky.
Cute real Kitteh!
What happened to the five duck butts?
Ugh, I hate those! Not the real kitten, of course. But the fake ones creep me out.
Moving on, I love kitten’s ears!
You need to wait until your kitteh is asleep, then place this little gizmo next to it.
Yes it’s really soft because it is REAL fur and it’s not fur of rabbit. Just read the articles this business of chinese fur trade for these figurine must be stoped!
For the love of animals don’t buy these and ask questions to the persons who got one.
Cat is not impressed.
Yes-I’ve never understood the idea of “Let’s kill a real animal to make a fake one!”
Fake fur is cute, real fur…:(
Blobby cat sez…
LOL the real kitty is a beauty though. Its ears are way too huge for its head.
Okay, we’ve had this conversation already—
let’s just assume that peeps will use common sense when purchasing stuffed animals and can be counted on to do the right thing.
Those little cats and dogs creep me out! Thanks, now I have the heebie jeebies!
Kitty’s thinking “I’m disgusted with, and disappointed in you, all at the same time. Remove this offensive thing. Now.”
“I’m your kitten yes I’m the real kitten all you other fake kittens are really not hittin’ so won’t the real-life kitten please stand up….”
Yeah. Thank you hover text. It’s stuck in my head now.
Well, this kinda ruined my day. Don’t want to see this.
All I can say is, EAR FLOOF!
Real kitteh is saying, “Just wait until your back is turned… then I’ll show you that I AM the only kitteh in this house!!”
OMG. Love that song, hate the fake kitteh. Plz to snorgle real kitteh?
Eminem lives only a few miles (and light years economically) away from me! Not sure if that’s something to brag about or conceal. Please discuss.
Pls. refer to Metsakins link for the “REAL FUR” discussion.
Meanwhile, Meg, kudos for capturing Kyle’s mom’s voice. But can you PLEASE TELL ME where “Please Stand Up, Please Stand Up” is from? I’ve remembered that my WHOLE LIFE from somewhere and I can’t remember where!!! Yes, me, Berthaservant, master of the obscure….I can’t pin it down. GAHHHHHH!!!
ps kittehs rock
Oh…apparently it’s Eminem. But it’s not, I’m remembering something from the early 70s, a commercial jingle or something. Meg may in fact be referring to the slim shady thing. But that’s not what I’m talking about, so I am still near-master of the obscure.
As you were. Sorry.
metsakins said: “let’s just assume that peeps will use common sense”
Oh, I wish I had your optimism…
I hope this person isn’t allergic to his paperweight.
I asked a sale member of a shop of these figurines at a Salon and he tell me thats real fur. It was this shop http://www.grandcrafts.com/
And if you remove the fur from the figurine you will see that it’s real skin and fur.
Now stop hide in the sand.
Animal cruelty exist.
berthaservant: “What’s My Line?” maybe? You know: “Would the real [fill in the blank] please stand up!” I don’t remember their repeating it, though.
psygirl sai: “Now stop hide in the sand.
Animal cruelty exist.”
Who’s hiding their head in the sand? Please read the thread; your point has been mentioned.
And who here is saying animal cruelty doesn’t exist?
kitteh is all; “why this kitten not play wit me?”
i have one of the cats that sleep in a little bed on my desk, it is battery powered and breathes (and makes a purring noise)
it is 100% synthetic materials and contains no animal fur. but it is VERY lifelike and many people have mistaken it for a real cat!
so not ALL of these sleepin kittehs are of real fur, this one looks like it might be (actually they both look very life-like to me :). but dont jump to conclusions ya’all.
Point is, the photo is cute!
My mother bought me a pug like this one – this one “breathed” as long as you fed it batteries. It creeped me out so much I gave it to Goodwill.
Absolutely, fish eye, thank you for saying what I could not phrase correctly. Yes, I am an optimist and hope that at least the readers of teh cute will be aware in their purchases. I think it is valid to mention that some of these toys are made from real fur. I just didn’t want it to digress into an argument of yes it is real fur, no it’s not, that is why I mentioned the previous thread.
Now I’m going to make a big batch of butterscotch puddin’!
“will the real —- please stand up” came from a 60s game called ‘To Tell The Truth’ There were 3 people posing as someone with an unusual job, and the panel of guest celebs had to figure out which one was the real so and so.
Hmmm or was it ‘I’ve Got A Secret’?
Well, it was one of those!
Yes, I am old.
Its real fur. How do I know? I am allergic to them. Gross.
Creepy as hell. No thank you.
Seven Paws, right, it was to tell the truth. on I’ve got a secret you had to guess the secret.
The little fake cat is made of real cat fur !!!! or bunny fur…please don’t buy that stuff..you only support the fur-market
I’ll throw in my 2 cents… The only incidence of a repeated “please stand up” that I can think of is from Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady.”
Those cat figurines are uber-creepy. I thought it was real for a sec. Some cheap Chinese gifts store downtown sells a bunch of them. It does feel like real fur, so ew.
Yayyy, Meta is as old as i am. (Or else watches TV Land.)
(Wasn’t Kitteh Carlyle one of the panelists?)
Alexis — yep, that’s the one. But Eminem was making a reference to that “To Tell the Truth” game, so 7paws & Mets are close enough.
Psygirl is right. And no matter whose fur it was, it belongs on THEM, living, breathing and having good, safe, happy lives. Not on yet more THINGS. Please, folks, boycott fur. ALL fur.
Yes, I know about “To Tell the Truth” — but I’m still thinking of something else. Or I’m just mushing a bunch of really unimportant facts into a little casserole of factoid-iness in order to save space in my brain. Thanks though, peeps.
I have one of those cats, too. The bottom tag says “100% synthetic fur.” No real fur there! They’re called Purrfect Pets.
I remember “To Tell The Truth” with Kitty Carlisle! and Soupy Sales…Oh gourd! and Captain Kangaroo…and Miss Jean on Romper Room…and Rex Trailer..and..ok I’ll stop now :/
berthaserv — get up, stand up, stand up for your rights?
Anyone else notice that the tabbeh kitteh has Kudu Horns instead of the M?
“go vegan :)”
If it floats your boat.
getting slightly troubled about what “what my line” was about. Seems some of my trivia brain cells are dying. and yes seven paws, no TVland was involved in the show viewing.
Riiight like we can trust them it’s not synthetic at all there’s many cheap fur farm in china it cost almost nothing and they got the most realistic fur with real one dissemble one and you will see.
Just go deeper than that to get the information.
Icky. Also, if they want to be so realistic that they have to use real fur, why can’t they get the nose right? Kitty with mole nose…huh?!?
I definitely will mention this to the folks at our animal shelter, b/c someone gave them one of those fake kitties and they keep it in the restroom on the toilet paper stand (it freaks everyone out).
Real live kitten looks a lot like my recent shelter rescue kitten– big floofeh ears and all! Don’t worry kitteh, you’ll grow into them.
metsakins: Maybe I can redeem myself after my earlier flub. (D’oh! Of course “please stand up” was NOT from “What’s My Line”–they only had one person on at a time!) WML was the one where they had different guests come on and answer yes/no questions about their jobs from a panel of four celebrities, until one of them could guess it or they used up all their questions. (Famous, probably apocryphal blooper: Someone asked a mattress manufacturer, “Is your product used by one sex over the other?”) They’d also have celebrities as guests. For this the panelists would have to put on blindfolds, in the form of little black Lone Ranger-like masks; the women’s masks were lined with rhinestones. Very classy. (OK, I just did all that from memory. Now I’ll go to Wikipedia and see how I did.)
Sounds good, Juno.
Lordy, that takes me back. We used to watch WML all the time, and to Tell the Truth, and the classic (Peter Marshall and Paul Lynde in the middle) Hollywood Squares, and…
Soupy Sales was more famous for being on What’s My Line (the 70′s syndicated version) than To Tell the Truth. Hey, Boomtown fans – my husband and I met Rex Trailer at a show about 3 years ago. I impressed him with my rememberance of his horse’s name (Gold Rush) and knowledge that the bird who said “Howdy howdy howdy howdy” ad infinitum was Hubert and was not a duck as commonly believed, but a swan. I also asked him “Rex, how come my husband and I got older but you didn’t?” He scoffed, “Oh, come on!” or something similar. He has aged a bit but not much! Still sings well, too.
I cringe when I see those faux kittehs and puppehs because I know the fur is definitely not faux. Cruel!
what is dat!?! Is it real O.O;
Im glad this one appears to not be made of real fur. Those fake ones make me angry. I think that CuteOverload should raise awareness to its readers about these kinds of things. As all of us are mutual lovers of cute, we’d be horrified to find out that the jacket we bought was lined with dog fur or that toy was made from real cat or the food we feed our pets is made of rendered fat and grain…its important to get these messages out there. Great pic though!!
Yr memories of WML are spot-on. I recall the infamous “mattress” episode. One of the women (Arlene Francis or Dorothy Kilgallen) oh so innocently asked the question, causing everyone to go into wild hysterics, while the celebrity panel didn’t know why.
