Hooked on the Marmalade action

There’s been quite a bit of Marmalade action around the site lately. It’s beginning to attract some attenshons:


Abby L., there are very specialized therapists who can help…



  1. Ooooh, I love marmie kittens! He looks just like my late Jess. He was HUGE and very ginger. That cat is probably wondering why there are no pics of him. Hope he sees this entry.

  2. Who IS he?!!!!!! :O

  3. Kristabelle says:

    What is it about Marmie cats that is so cuter than cute???

  4. Natalie says:

    that is so adorable. I especially like his highly reflective collar. My marmie wears an orange Harley collar which is extremely fitting. This lil guy is a shiny superstar!

  5. Natalie says:

    Um, I meant Harley Davidson collar. In case you didn’t know. 🙂

  6. Lizzums says:

    *looks around for Bserv and gets out of the way* OMG marmies!

  7. lucky Cliff says:

    shoo cat, SHOO!! Get your ‘tocks offa my $2000 MacBook Pro right NOW!!!

  8. No. There is no amount of therapy that can cure Red Cat-itis. Once the virus gets in your system, that’s it. Fortunately, it can be controlled with regular infusions of fur, purring, head butts, body slams, an occasional hairball, and nappingks.

    Stop it. STOP EEEEET!!!!!

    It’s like being tickled to death!!!

    (the preserve is technically spelled “marmalade” fyi but maybe the kitties prefer the other spelling)

    [Yeah, I’m always correcting that one, thpppp… – Ed.]


    When I’m moving this summer I am so getting a marmie kittie.

  10. LeeLeeMarie says:

    Did they purchase the coach to match the kitty or vice versa?

  11. That is one adorable kitten. I want to put his feets in my mouf.

  12. His body language says ‘Hmmm…perhaps I shall bat at that later. I’ll check my diary and see if I can fit it in.’

  13. Who knew kittehs were Mac fanboys?

  14. Janice of the Nine says:

    My kittehs–handsome, brilliant, charming kittehs all–are getting very jealous at the number of times I’ve stared at the monitor this morning and cried out in a loud voice, “OMG! Marmies!!!1!!”

  15. Remember Cheesedoodle Goes Online? Tech marmies rock!

  16. Ooh, Marmie butt! Marmie butts are the cutest butts.

  17. When the kitteh is red
    From his tail to his head,
    That’s a marmie!
    When his coat has a sheen
    Like a ripe tangerine,
    That’s a marmie!

  18. We could never have too many marmies (hey, that gives me an idea for a subdivision of Cats and Racks: Marmies and Mammaries). In fact, I believe marmies have the potential to bring about WORLD PEACE. Think about it: there has never been (to my knowledge, anyway) a commentroversy about what these cats should be called. I grew up with ‘orange,’ then there’s ‘red,’ ‘ginger,’ and ‘marmalade’/’marmie’ (which I never heard before CO). It’s the true universal language! We each use our term of choice, and everyone else knows what we’re talking about and just goes with the flow without attempting to ‘correct’ others. No doubt it’s the lovey, gooey, ‘awwwwwwww’ feelings we experience upon looking at one of these adorable creatures. I tell you, if the world would only live by my motto–“Every home should have an orange cat, and every orange cat should have a home”–there would be no more wars.

    Can you tell I just really love orange cats? Here’s my favorite on CO (second only to my own Jack, the Big Fat Orange Cat):


    (My first attempt at a link–you got my back, Teho?)

  19. Absolutely adorable! Want to see some more Marmalade action?! This video is from the Norther CA cat show. If you love cats and haven’t gone, it is a must see!

  20. Mary (the first) says:

    Personally, “marmies” are not my favorite.. but .. considering the bottom of the line on kittehs is still, like, 9 out of 10 on the wonderfulness scale.. they’re still way high up there! And this one’s a cutie! And there’s a truly gorgeous one at my vet’s office too. And I have even had one of my own (“Duke”, short for “Marmaduke”, guess how he got that name.)
    What I’m saying is.. I agree, Marmies could indeed, bring about world peace!!

  21. marmalade cat. marmalade couch.

  22. Rooanne says:

    Nooooo! It’s happening to me again — Marmie Overload!

    I didn’t intend to get an orange & white cat, I wasn’t looking for a Flickr site soley devoted to orange & white cats…. and now… it’s like I’m in some weird alternate Marmie universe (or not, I’ve been watching science fiction).

  23. ♥ those marmies!!!

    and so does that kitty cat!!

  24. starlinguk says:

    I put my marmie on flickr and put the oreengeness tag on it, but it refuses to show up in the cluster. Whenever I untick the “Hide this photo from public searches” box (in the “flag” bit), the tick is back when I look next, even though it claims it’s saved it. Grrr.

  25. Giuchie, Giuchie, ya ya dada (Hey hey hey)
    Giuchie, Giuchie, ya ya here (here)
    Mocha Chocalata ya ya (oh yea)
    Creole lady Marmalade!

  26. To steal a line from 30 Rock: This is a dealbreaker.

    I’d have to toss my kitty in the dungeon for this with his little paws chained up.

  27. KittyMarthaPoo says:

    Marmies are GODDESSES. Rest in peace, my beloved Taffy. 🙂

  28. He is typing in “Marmies” in Google search!lol!

  29. I am totally ignoring my cat to look at pictures of cats.

  30. puddlepeppers says:

    T.U.M….Thanks for “That’s a Marmie.”
    and another verse…
    “When BServ is so sad…Cause you’re what he ain’t had…You’re a marmie…
    Bells will play…kitties bat away…and you’ll say, ‘Why you ain’t got a marmie?’
    …’Gotta move…U Haul is a groove’…BServ, we approve…on your way to a
    Here’s to a happy life!!

  31. dawgpup says:

    hmmm… (thinks aloud) we had a kitten named marmalade come through the organization that i volunteer for sometimes, have not lately b/c swine flu and soccer, and he looked just like that, nah can’t be…

  32. chanpon says:

    This marmie can’t even resist looking at his own kind! It’s the devil’s addiction, I tell ya’.

  33. soxfan413 says:

    I’m loving all the orange kits! I need to nuff a teeny bit though… that’s likely a Hartz reflective flea collar there. Flea collars just aren’t effective and can even be dangerous.. google it if ya want.
    Sorry… I hate to do stuff like this, but if it helps someone who doesn’t know, I guess it’s worth it…

  34. Miranda says:

    Argh! Stop showing me ginger kitties!!! My sweet cat Sadie died a week ago and I’m not in a position to get another cat (not ready, plus losing Sadie took us down to four animals and that’s the number we want to make our upper limit now). I do *not* need the temptation!!!

    (I’m just kidding. Not about the temptation, but about the request to stop it. 🙂 I do want my next kitty to be a ginger or a calico, though … 🙂

  35. Cloudchaser Sakonige (sah-koh-nee-gay) says:

    I think you have my cat!

  36. hon glad says:

    Kitty sees Mom on TV in her wanton pose. Geez I told her not to drink.

  37. starlinguk says:

    My marmie is currently sitting on the yard wall, swearing at birdies. He brought a fledgeling in the other day but I managed to rescue it before he caused too much injury (took it to the vet, they have a “special lady” who looks after widdoo birdies). Thank goodness he usually restricts himself to flies.

  38. The kind of fur coat that i like. =]

    But hey kitty, that’s bad for your eyes! 30cm away please! =X

    Lol. Won’t the butt feel too warm? XD

  39. earlybird1 says:

    In the second pic, the kitteh’s all like, “OK, so let’s see… I curl my tail up this way, and then I twist my rear end around that way…”

  40. I grew up down the road from a woods that had a feral colony made up of 99% marmies. (There was a restaurant dumpster at the edge pf the woods.) Every spring we’d quietly sneak out to see the new crop of red babies. once in a while a black or tabby tom would wander through during mating season, and there’d be a tortie or two amongst the tiny dollops of orange.

  41. AWW 🙂 What a cute marmie 🙂 As for him/her getting onto the laptop, TYPICAL SPOILED KITTY 🙂 Is there any other kind 🙂

  42. Uh oh. Dat kitty does NOT look old enough to be looking at that stuff. 😛

  43. AbbyLsMom says:

    Is that darn cat on your NEW Macbook that I JUST bought you because your old puter broke? Signed, NOT HAPPY MOM

  44. eternalcanadian says:
