Winston-san won’t stop licking himself at the dinner table


I know you should wash your hands before dinner, but THIS IS RIDICULOUS:



  1. Winston-san TOTALLY cracks me up!

    I wuv him!

    Sorry to say, he’s better than the original!

  2. Gail (the first one) says:

    Perfect dinner set-up, down to the post-meal cigarette in the ashtray! I like our little Winston-san!!

  3. Bring back the old Winston!! This one doesn’t really move alot… just kinda sits there.. like a cat.. :-/

  4. Winston-san, I insist that you stop smoking immediately!

  5. Hmmm, Winston-san, if you’re not eating all those dumplings, I think I’ll have some. And beer too, domo arigato.

  6. my persian cat does not do this! he just knocked over a glass because he’s feisty : (

  7. Paunchie says:

    I was just gonna say the same thing poohbear! I lerve dumplings!

  8. The burp at the end just slays me.

  9. looks like Wilford Brimley-san…is he gonna smoke one of those butts for us?

  10. Tractatus Blorpico-Philosophicus says:

    Winston-san is sooo much better than original Winston! The fact that he’s not even trying to eat the plateful of gyoza right in front of him demonstrates his superior mind-control!

  11. Encore presentayshe?

    Not that I mind though!

  12. I’m pretty sure this is an encore presentaysh. I have seen this one before. That doesn’t make it any less adorable, however. <33 Winston-San, ily.

  13. honeypants says:

    I was gonna say the same thing, Nancy! He is totally Wilford Brimley-san!

  14. OH! THAT’S who this kitteh is. I’ve seen him befo’. I still say the stuffed seal vids are the best.

  15. Texas2Step says:

    Look up Redonkulous in the dictionary and there will be a picture of Winston-san.

  16. I’m sorry, but my heart belongs to the one and only Winston. **sigh**

  17. I want to BE this kitteh!

  18. Hon Glad says:

    No napkin, then i’ll lick meself.Now where’s the proper nosh?

  19. gravyboat says:

    I love this little guy! He’s like a fat fuzzy Buddha!

  20. Sorry, not cute at all, but rather disgusting. There are really cuter cats in the world. Please post cute cats, not spoiled, disgusting, fat Persians licking their messy dreadlock fur. Yuk.

  21. Lily: how do you know that Winston-san is fat? He looks like a normal, long-haired (Persian) cat to me.

    I think that he’s a very endearing cat and enjoy watching videos of him.

  22. I like him. He is a regular kinda cat guy sitting at the table.

  23. I love the grumpy little old man face, hehe.

    And Lilly, woaah!!! Breathe will you?

  24. cataddict says:

    Whaaahhh! I can’t see videos at work. I have to wait until I get home. I’m going into CO withdrawal……

  25. he never moves :/

  26. She knows he’s fat because we see him eating all the time… I bet he doesn’t exercise, either! He just lays around the house eating, sleeping, and demanding attention from his owners…

    Oh, wait… he’s a cat… that’s all a given. 🙂

  27. Winston-san is extremely cute and fluffy, but nobody will replace the (the original) Winston. He is just too silly to replace!

  28. DumBunny says:

    A little bit of this and a little bit of that, something for everyone, If you don’t like what you see now, come back latter and see what’s new. That’s what I like about CO.

    As for the cat, he’s ok, but it’s time for some bunnies!!!! (But then for me, it’s always bunny time, hence the name.)

  29. Yuck -Winston-San is no match for the real Winston the smushed faced kitty.
    Get rid of the fake cat. He is a boring blob.

  30. Please pass the hair balls.

  31. What is his real name?

  32. catloveschanel says:


    Remember when you don’t sit up straight it makes your stomach look fat.

    [sucks it in]

  33. GingerBean says:

    If you don’t like what you see on Cuteoverload, please come back later. If you feel so strongly about it that you must insult anyone, please feel free to make your own website where you can post whatever you want. At which point you can deal with people like yourself who post mean comments as if they’re paying for this service.

    Winston-san is a beautiful persian kitteh. Of course his owners spoil him, it’s part of the fun of having pets!

  34. @Theresa: According to the youtube channel, Wilford Brimley-san’s real name is Shirobu.

  35. He’s probably purring, “I iz pleazes with ur offring, hoomans” Har!

  36. Does anyone else get the feeling that the owner of this kitty might be a slightly lonely person? Not that I’d know, I’m not sitting here drinking coffee with my kitty sole companion, nope…

    If the nuffers had their way there’d only be 2 posts a month here because nothing else would make it through the quality and correctness controls. Amazing.

  37. Poohbear says:


    Sorry to interrupt your meal, Winston-san, but Peeps, have you seen the ad in the left hand column for Meelks from Cloned Cows ?? Or am I hallucinating from watching too much Winston-san ?? Is cloning animals for profit becoming a normal thing to do ?? Would you drink meelks from cloned cows without a second thought ??? If you love animules (and humans too), CO Management, please consider removing that add ??

    *pant-pant-pant* whew, end of threadjack

  38. kibblenibble says:

    Winston-san is rather like a cross between Buddha and Wilfred Brimley. Personally, I prefer the original Winston, he just tickles my funny bone more…along with Rich and Rudy. However, this guy is pretty amusing on his own, and seems pretty content. I had to laugh when the camera moves to the side and you can see how he is carefully propped up on three pillows so he can look like he’s sitting at the table. We animal lovers do strange things with/for our beasts, sometimes. This kitteh, for one, doesn’t seem to mind. :o)

  39. VentureSister says:

    Uuuuh, what? Cloned animals are everywhere on the market. They have a freaking cloned mule race. I have no problem drinking milk from a cloned animal because it is THE SAME ANIMAL. It was grown in the womb, it produces milk exactly the same way as the cow it was cloned from. And frankly, if you have a problem with it, why take the ad down? That just ignores the perceived problem. Maybe I’m not a very good judge though, because I also have no problem eating meat that was grown in a lab. It’s just freaking protein, people. Where it comes from should not be of importance, as long as the cows are treated humanely and the gene pool is kept relatively diverse. /rant.

  40. VentureSister says:

    Oh, I should probably clarify, cloned animals are mainly on the market for studding, not for eating. But if you have a problem eating meat directly from the cloned source, why should the off-spring be any different?

  41. Greenwell says:

    Sorry, am I the only one who looked at that website and thought it looks like a total spoof? Or some kind of viral ad, like for the Terminator? There’s hardly any information given and some of it doesn’t really make sense. Maybe peeps are getting upset for nothing.

  42. Winston-san has to be one of the most laid back kittehs ever. As for the nuffers…go away.

  43. I completely love Winston-san. I just watched it again and I believe he did burp right there at the end didn’t he. Hi-larious.

  44. Yes Zanna I agree, Winston-san’s Mom must be just a little bit lonely…

  45. berthaservant says:

    I really hope we can call this cat by his own name. He is not a knock-off of another cat. He’s a cat with a personality and identity of his own. I’m not saying we can’t make comparisons, but let’s turn this into a Winston vs. Shirobu battle or something, instead of just calling this guy Winston-san or the Japanese Winston. Slight ’nuffage, but I think respect is due.

  46. berthaservant says:

    We can, however, call him the Japanese Mr. Creosote.

  47. catloveschanel says:

    I was saddened to see the real Winston has sunk to kitty porn.

  48. Lilly, what are you smoking? A fat lazy disgusting cat wouldn’t:

    1) Sit on his back, upright against a table

    2) patiently avoid knocking down all that cleanly placed food/items

    3) lick and clean himself thoroughly

    in other words, you’re just hating the cat for being different from your regular boring ol’ cats. Wake up!

  49. ariesgirl says:

    Power of big floofy kitty-activate!
    Thank you-today is my birthday, and that was a lovely gift.

  50. Let’s call him by his real name, “The Japanese Wilford Brimley-san”. Burp.

  51. Ahhh Winton-san so well mannered … 🙂

  52. It’s a Buddha-kitty! 🙂

  53. Birdcage says:

    Jabba the Catt. You will bring Pan-Fried Dumplings and the wookie to me!!!

  54. I friggin love this filmmaker! ;D

    He/she really knows their audience and leaves us hungry for more and more. Genuis!

  55. Deanna- ya think?

    ariesgirl- Happy Birthday and very clever comment!

  56. Gary and others, I have three long-haired cats myself, I know what I am talking about. Believe me, they are really spoiled, too. However, I prefer neat and smart cats, cats like the “real” Winston. Get them back on cuteoverload, please.

  57. theotherhilary says:

    Is that wilfred brimley?

  58. Birdcage, you beat me to it, although I was going to say “Jabba the Floof”!

    Wilford Brimley? YES! The cost of your diabetes testing supplies may be covered!

  59. carol0717 says:

    Winston-san is adorable, but he is no Winston! A closed second, maybe. Love those smushed-face kitties!!!!!

  60. Chunky kitteh disapproves of fried gyoza!

  61. The sake and cigarettes are a nice touch…Oh how I wish he would pick up that cigarette! That would complete the story!

  62. Hmm… me thinks Miss Meggy is on a Winston-san kick.

    But really.. pillows behind a kitty (big, fat, & floofy) at the dinner table? That cat needs to go catch a grasshopper or something. Actually, Mr/Ms owner needs to get out more too. Nothin personal, but really…

    p.s. more bunnehs please

  63. I watched the whole thing in case a raccoon paw came up through the edamame beans: nope.


  65. I LOVE this cat, I’ve known about him for quite awhile now and I think he’s the cutest thing everrrrr. Me and my fiance call him Kitten Van Buren.


    He’s so immovable….
    and floofy….
    and grumpy….
    and hungry….
    and piggy.

  67. I think he’s very put out and waiting for someone to put the food up to his mouth.

    “Hey, that tuna’s not going to jump into my mouth by itself people! It’s not like I’m going to use chopsticks.”

  68. Raemie L. says:

    Possibly my fav clip of Wilford Brimley/Winston-san/Shirobu so far.

  69. Thank you GingerBean! I,have had enough of the nuffers! Just because Lilly doesn’t think Winston-san is cute, doesn’t make it so. He’s plenty cute for plenty of people. I think CO does a great job, dare I say, better than anyone else out there, presenting cute to the world. Lilly, go find someone who does cute consistently better. I dare you.

    Is it me or should he be the captain of some beat up ship with a pipe? that is one grumpy whisky loving face my friends.
