Everyone Knows It’s Kitty

Hey, kids! What’s fun for a girl and a boy? Clicking that button to the left, then starting the video, that’s what.



  1. Cats are so silly…

  2. Paunchie says:

    Is this an encore presentache?

    [Call it a “reboot” 😉 – Ed.]

  3. That cat has the coolest markings!

  4. Ogeminijune says:

    Slinky cat!

  5. I’ve heard of feather dusters, but kitty dusters?

  6. a little too much catnip I would say

  7. papagenothehedgehog says:

    NO BONES!!!!!!!!

  8. now the whole staircase BELONGS TO KITTY! (as well as the hand.)

  9. Katiedid says:

    Heheheh.. I wonder if this is like the cat version of OCD.. you know like how some humans have to walk in a doorway a certain number of times or can only turn left.. 😀

  10. Uh oh, silly kitty apparently swallowed a Slinky!

  11. Who’s peekin’ out from under a stairway,
    Calling a name that’s lighter than air?
    Who’s bending down to give me a rainbow?
    Everyone knows it’s Kitty.

  12. Kristabelle says:

    That was an itch that just could not get scratched…

  13. HP: That’s TOTALLY what I thought the title was referencing at first.

  14. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    @HP: Now I’m going to have that song in my head all day (which is not necessarily a bad state to be in 🙂 )

  15. The owner of this cat is japanese by the way.

  16. Moral of this tail: Never use catnip upstairs.

  17. I loved the final, opposite-side-of-stairs slither.

  18. I want to see this done in pairs!

  19. Martha in Washington says:

    Hey! My cat does that too. Only our stairs are carpeted so she can’t glide as easily as this one. So what is it exactly about Cats and Stairs? Just wonderin’.

    HP–that song is what went through my head first too instead of the Slinky song.

  20. Significant says:


  21. Thanks for the brainworm, NTMTOM!

    for the abovers:
    ‘Whaaaat rolls down stairs, alone or in pairs, and runs over your neighbor’s dog?,
    What’s great for a snack, And fits on your back?
    It’s log, log, log.

    ‘It’s lo- og! It’s lo- og! It’s big, it’s heavy, it’s wood.
    It’s log, it’s log, it’s better than bad, it’s good.

    ‘Everyone wants a log, you’re gonna love it, log, come on and get your log,
    Everyone needs a log, needs a log, needs a log…
    From BLAMMO!!’

  22. Pretty nimble for a cow.

  23. Yay! What a goofy way to go down stairs. Cat doesn’t seem bothered. 🙂


  24. My first thought… Kitty’s pouring himself down the stairs.

  25. SamanthaM says:


    Thank you! I thought of Log first, and was actually surprised to hear the Slinky song.

  26. I wonder if Kitteh goes back up the stairs the same way? 😉

  27. Maureen says:

    The cat is just reminding us (by marking) that is does, in fact, own everything in the house including the stairs!

  28. Mary (the first) says:

    My first thought is that she’s lonely .. verrrrrryyyy lllooooooooooonnnnnneeeelly if you get my drift. This kind of squirmy rubbing against everything looks like she’s in heat.. to me. No catnip necessary.

  29. Blondie says:

    LOL! Brilliant… Now someone needs to dub in the Slinky song. That would be priceless!

  30. Christabel says:

    Obviously s/he needs a back scratching.

  31. leslie thomas says:

    Alternative Photo Title:

    “Look at MEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!I’m a PRINCESS!!!”

    **& I must say, that if I got a head rubbing like that, for my performance, I would gladly perform the same way …

  32. One Eyed Daruma says:

    Christabel… My thoughts, exactly!

  33. does he always act like that after being hosed down with Endust ?

  34. chanpon says:

    “It’s slinkat, it’s slinkat, it’s fun, it’s a wonderful toy. It’s fun for a girl or a boy.”

  35. that kitty needs to be petted more often!

  36. I usually check if my noodles are done by picking it out with a fork and throwing it against the wall…

  37. katiegill80 says:

    That cat is basically petting itself. How self reliant!

  38. redonk!

  39. And this is why I love cats, because they are so weird.

  40. Pyrit…… wha??

    My cat does this on every surface available.. walls, chairs., cupboards, beds, legs.. walls. The funny thing is, sometimes he doesn’t really turn his head in time to do the RUUUBBB.. so he bonnks his head against the object. Seriously. BONK. Meowww. BONK.. Meowwww.. He’s siamese, so he tells you about it as well.

  41. That is the funniest cate I have ever seen. Is that the “safe” way to descend?

  42. Oh my god, she looks like a slinky =)

  43. I do believe that this is certain scientific proof that domestic felines are neither traditional liquids or solids, but rather are non-Newtonian fluids, much like oobleck. I know because of my learnings.

    In short, d’aww, lookit the kitty, he thinks he’s a slinky!

  44. Raidell says:

    I think that kitty is part of the Ministry of Silly Walks, only he’s taking it to the EXTREME! He’s not even walking!

  45. berthaservant says:

    I’m guessing the stairs are made of catnip. AND the kittie wants “company.”

  46. sunnymum says:

    Freaking hilarious! I love cats! How fun, how innovative, how cute!

  47. GIGGLE 🙂 Kitty was saying “I had an itchy back to scratch.” 🙂

  48. Cats are so weird sometimes. Cute and weird.

  49. So now the part about “it makes a slinKITTY sound” makes sense!

  50. WendyPinNJ says:

    That’s probably one of the nuttiest things I’ve seen a cat do, ever! But at least it gets good rubbies on all it’s different surfaces!

  51. Haha. My cat does this same thing… or at least he tries to. We have carpeted stairs so the slithering effect is harder to pull off… he just sort of flops down one stair at a time.

  52. it’d rule if his/her name was “log”


  53. Oh yesss, the Noodle Kitty! I was the original sender-inner for this! My moment of CO GLORY!!!!!!!

  54. 1st thought- too much catnip?
    2nd thought- just got back from the Vets?( he or she is now an it so to speak )
    3rd thought- hmmm, find a soft cat sweater so cat can dust stairs at the same time.
    Years ago when my sister brought her cat home from the vets (getting the cat fixed)the cat was still so loopy that she only made it up two steps then sat down and yowled, My sister made up a bed for her in a laundry basket so she could be where ever her peoples were because the cat kept trying to follow my sister from room to room.

  55. DaytimeDeb says:

    This reminds me of the boneless chicken ranch/Farside by Gary Larsen. Boneless kitty — but has slinky inserted instead of skeleton!

  56. Rubber soul.

  57. Hi Golden! Wha’? Oh that? Y’know, half the time, even I don’t know what I’m saying!

    Great story about your funny siameezer!

  58. Love the kitty’s colouring!

  59. lol its the slinky cat

  60. puddlepeppers says:

    And…as the 2009 Slinkathon for “Kids Need Smiles” draws to a close,
    we want to thank all the participants and please stay tuned as our
    winner will be announced shortly…er, a short winner will be annointed…
    er, an enunciated winner will have a short moment of glory…aw, h*ll…
    back away from the remote!

  61. platedlizard says:

    Cats are strange.

  62. Someone scratch that kitty’s back for God’s sake!

  63. Thats right folks…..it’s the new swiffer stair sweeper !!!

  64. Janice and "Ralph" the Wonder Llama says:

    NTMTOM: Genius! The music was the Purrfect Touch. 😀

  65. spaceaged says:

    Nice spot! Spot or Scratch would be a good name for that cat.

  66. At first I was afraid that we had back leg issues. Thankfully we’re just really silly.

    LOVE that pet at the end.

  67. I thought of Log first too!

  68. That’s a Turkish Van cat! A very smart creature.

  69. Subhangi says:

    ROFL. Cats are goofball extraordinaires. Silly kitty!

  70. @HP – you are so right – as I was watching the video I was “singing” that song to myself – this is way before I saw your comment – now I am stuck with the song.
    Last day at College today – I think – Open University in October – but most likely – I’ll want to get me a Kitty first

  71. TOO FUNNEE!! Kitties can be so silly sometimes! And soooo kewt at the same time 🙂

  72. jackie31337 says:

    This just confirms my theory that cats are actually a liquid. Oh also, there may be a cat in my future! My boyfriend just adopted a kitten. I have yet to see pictures, but I’ve been assured it’s adorable.

  73. every day is a good day when you start it with inventing a new and unique way of going down stairs!

  74. It’s a new low in feline laziness – why walk down the stairs when you can just roll?

  75. At first I thought it must be a CH kitty, ’cause mine can get pretty floppy sometimes. But then she seems to walk normally at the bottom, so she’s probably just trying to scent the entire stairway. Cats are efficient like that.

  76. Silly Putty – tat.

  77. Katiedid says:

    alexa- I think they make those for babies!! lol (the dusting sweaters)

  78. Carlisa says:

    A *Kitty Roomba* for stairs- me likes!

  79. opossum says:

    That black spot on my back!

  80. maralisil says:

    aawwww! Dat’s just a lovie cat making “nice kitty” all over the place! “Look at me! I”m pretty!” 🙂

  81. That’s Full-body Property Marking and Extreme Self-gratification/abuse.

    We’ve seen it before.

  82. cute! i wonder if she’s in heat though
    my cat acted crazy stupid when she was in heat

  83. riolinda says:

    such a funny kitty! loved it! 🙂

  84. Soooooooooooooooo cute♥

  85. trumanrabbit says:

    You missed a SPOT. Hi yo!

  86. GIGGLE 🙂 If I had a cat that did that, I would call him/her “Slinky” 🙂

  87. From the Great Book of Slapstick, it’s the old Stairway of Banana Peels gag.
    Listed after anvil and before frying pan.
    Maybe it was the old rubber chicken but they had no chicken?

  88. nywvblue says:

    The audio / video pairing smacks of GENIUS. Must’ve watched this a dozen times by now! Thank you, brilliant ones at CO.

  89. Edward Murray says:

    There’s an easy way and there’s the Siamese way!

  90. Nice Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends reference! Um, well at least I think that’s what it is.

  91. Carlisa says:

    oh…my..radda radda!

  92. Carlisa says:

    ummm…if you can get your “kitty” to this, mebbe he’ll post 😉
