Are you saying I’m fat?

I know I’ve gained an extra pound, but a BALLOON WITH MY FACE ON IT!? HARSH!

Icarus the kitteh was captured by Scott Pargett Photography who’s also on Flickr.

  6. Re: Dreamspinner C

    That’s “your Ziggy”? ;0D
    Whew ! For a minute I thought “my Smuge” sent in a pic of himself !
    (He’s such an attention …who..slu….HOG!)

  7. Bummer…the photog’s link is broken. Very funny kitty pic here though.

  8. Madame X says:

    But it’s PHOTOSHOPPED!!!

    There. Someone had to say it.

  9. Madame X says:

    Beautiful kitty, though…


  10. Miss Fluff prepares her submission for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade…

  11. kibblenibble says:

    Good one, Nik. :oD

  12. I am not Fat I am Floofy… Really it is the hair.. What do you mean the scale never lies?

  13. lol the kitty looks worried

  14. We interrupt this thread with an announcement:

    2 devoted C.O. peeps — anner and Katrina — met in person today for the first time! There were a lot of kids playing orchestral music, and a wonderful time was had by all. I’ll be sending in a pic soon!

    We now return to your regularly scheduled squee-fest.

    Wow! You people all exist in real life too?

    Kitteh + balloon usually = loud noises.

  16. Kitty does have his “Do I look amused?” face on.

  17. awwwww. kitty looks perfect to me!

  18. Anner are you gonna post on VOX????? YAy for you two meeting and yay for a fun time!!!

  19. Yup. I’m saying you’re fat, tubby. Nah, just kidding, there’s more of you to love!

  20. duck au vin says:

    Let’s fill the balloon with helium and let it go
    up up and away! If kitteh’s name is Icarus, wasn’t that a character in an ancient Greek-whatever-
    about flying near the Sun?

  21. Hon Glad says:

    So,I amuse you do I, SLASH.

  22. luvtockehs says:

    luv it!
    Pop Yourself!

  23. Maybe not photoshopped, but I still don’t think that cat on the left is REAL.

  24. Beautiful white kitty looks like my very first cat who escaped and ran away when I was 5. I cried for months…way to go CO for bringing up painful memories! Just kidding, but that is one gorgeous kitteh. And balloon-kitty is pretty cute too. I’d be hard pressed to find a tortoise shell balloon to make one of my baby though.Actually, she isn’t too far off in size anyway.

  25. Even more threadjacking:

    Yes, Anner is a real person! We had lots of time to chat and listen to the CCCYO and other kids play. Totalee puppy, Anner and I said your name out loud to the cosmos while thy musicians were playing. How was the concert you attended?

    Back to the firvolity.

  26. Annie — I’ll post on Flickr. It was so great to meet a fellow cuteologist/musican/grammarian/wise-ass! Got my mind going about how cuteology and community music-making could be merged…

    This balloon reminds me of my kitty pre-diet. I was noticing last night that she actually looks like a normal cat from above now! From the side and when she’s sitting or lying down, though, that fluff-covered belly-curtain still makes her look huge.

  27. bffthAAAHAHAHAHAA HA HA Lizzums.

  28. Yo, who you callin’ a wise-ass? Oh, me? OK, then.
    Paws up!

  29. “Fluff covered belly curtain” – ftw!
