But I Don’t Wanna Go to Work!

Nooooooooooooo! Everyone hates me there, and they make me feel stupid because I can’t use Excel, and I swear the copier knows when it’s me and it always eats my TPS reports, and besides the news said we were gonna have a snow day!


This is in no way autobiographical, Tina K.

    OMG NOMTOM that capshun is PURRFECT!

    BTW, did ya know tomorrow is Bleen Your Dog to Work Day?

  2. firefinch says:

    I thought tomorrow was Hawaiian Shirt Friday.

  3. How? HOW? HOW did you get this picture? I swear it’s only me on days with a “Y” in them.

  4. brinnann says:

    As well as Haiku Friday! 😀

  5. Kristabelle says:




    I was meant to be independently wealthy.

  6. I wouldn’t be able to bring any of my doggies 2 work.
    Kassie’s meds make her always ravenous so she’d eat everyone’s food.
    Remington is too nervous, he’d use his hound bark to scare everyone off.
    Renee is teh Queen of Everything that moves and Everything that doesn’t and she’d let everyone know it.
    Zippy chews up anything that isn’t nailed down, and most anything that is.

    On second thought….(grabs 4 doggie harnesses).

  7. Mary (the first) says:

    That’s definitely what I would look like if there were anyone there to pull pull PPPUUULLLLL me out of bed. As it is the kitteh yowls loudly into my ear but I just ignore her. And get up late.

  8. metsakins says:

    I know how to solve this kitty’s problem with work. Have kitty’s spouse retire…kitty will be running out the door. (This is in no way autobiographical.)

  9. I work in an office and my copier eats my TPS reports, so I’m getting a kick out of these replies.

  10. kibblenibble says:

    I love reluctant-to-work kitteh’s spotty tummy, but where’s his head? 🙂

  11. chanpon says:

    Haha…that’s me when I need to go to the doctor’s.

  12. KittehToez says:

    OMG the grey one looks just like my kitty, Celestial Nonsense!!! 😀

  13. LOL@metaskins!

  14. Katiedid says:

    LOL poor kitty.. It’s the opposite for me.. everyone knows I know how to fix the margins in word and do the formulas in excel and un-jam the copier.. getting out of bed is like .. ugh.. here we go again.. explaining how to load pictures from your camera onto the server for the billionth time.. *cringe*

  15. Poor kitteh, I know how you feel. Now come curl up next to me and we’ll get in more nappy times.

  16. firefinch says:

    metsakins — or have kitty’s children get off school for the summer (not autobiographical for me but for a co-worker).

  17. Arr Arr says:

    What an ADORABLE kitty bed. Anyone know where it came from? Must have one for my lil lazybones.

  18. No need to get catty.

    “Just back away from the cat bed, and I won’t claw your face off.”

  19. catloveschanel says:

    Wow, I shudda called in ill today. Everyone’s cranky around here.
    At first I thought it was a headless cat holding his head up,
    like the Legend of the Sleepy Hollow.

  20. It looks like when my kitty is trying to wake me up to pet him!!!

  21. catloveschanel says:

    Oh, my avatar finally showed up! There’s Dudley.

  22. sunnymum says:

    That kitter needs a series of raspberries along the line on his beautiful kitteh belleh! Me first!

  23. one of the best posts of CO. period.

  24. You doan wanna go to work?? So doan go already……!

  25. Belly spots are all the rage this season! 🙂

  26. NurseNoir says:

    Wonderful “belly buttons”!

  27. That belly! Must…rub…

  28. I looooove this photo and the captions!!

  29. Janelle says:

    Poor kitteh, I can empathize!

    And hey, if Mr. Lazypants lived here in Alberta, Canada a snow day in June would be a plausible excuse!

  30. Von Zeppelin says:

    Used up all my sick days. I’m calling in dead.

  31. Wise Owl Cat says:

    if going to work was left to wise owl cats, there would me NO WORK

  32. Branwyn says:

    TPS reports? Yay for an “Office Space” reference!

  33. Mud Bug says:

    …….It doesn’t look good for the “spots-ster” folks ! Our masked champion has his shoulders down for what looks like a 3 count !!! This has been a REAL slobber-knocker eh Gorilla ?…..

  34. It looks like the kitty has no head

  35. AuntieMame says:

    This is also no way representative of what goes on in my house. In the morning. Every stinking day. 😀

  36. Nevery stinking day, you mean. 😉

  37. AuntieMame says:

    Never ever ever ever ever ever…

    (Hay, who’s been sneaking into my house and taking my picture???)

  38. tracylee says:

    ohhhh I feel kitty’s paaaaainnnn
    it’s so disappointing to think it’s Friday and it’s only THURSDAY

  39. It took me a moment to figure out what was going on here, what with all the splayed cat parts. Love the fur ridge on Spotty’s tum!!!

  40. “…Oh wait, …I’m self-employed!”

  41. catloveschanel – Thank you. Love the Sleepy Hollow image. Ha!

  42. I wonder what he does with the carboard packaging pieces from the toner cartridges.

  43. GIGGLE 🙂 Looks like a kitty wrestling match gone wild 🙂

  44. hon glad says:

    Kitteh doesn’t enjoy session with personal trainer.

  45. Now this is really a therapeutic site!!!

  46. Genosha says:

    Metz..lol..dooo eeet!

  47. doomchild says:

    Ha, I’m working from home and thus I have the doggie and both of the cats at work with me! Although, to be honest, it sucks. Ever tried to concentrate writing a perfect memo, when a dog snores against your leg and if you lift your eyes just a bit from the sceen, you can see a marmalade kitteh napping on a sunbeam?

    Wouldn’t recommend it.

  48. Katrina says:

    Up at 4am today-Killer gagging. She is fine, just needed to go outside and eat some mint, man………..

  49. Headless cats are gross.

  50. Lizzums says:

    “KittehToez 06.25.09 at 1:33 pm
    OMG the grey one looks just like my kitty, Celestial Nonsense!!!”

    Celestial Nonsense is an awesome name for a cat. Just sayin’.

  51. Yep, that’s me, M-F. ‘Cept I would be saying, “I don’t want to face my Spawn of Satan five-year-olds class at daycare!” Seriously, they are the hardest group of kids I’ve ever worked with and I am literally counting the days until they go to kindergarten in August. Thank goodness for CO and all of you guys for helping me hang onto my shreds of sanity!

  52. I saw this photo and thought “The gray-and-white tuxedo looks just like our cat Buddy, right down the the Muppet eyes and the bad behavior! The world can’t handle another one!” But clearly, it can handle several, since Celestial Nonsense is a Buddy-twin too! It IS an awesome name…

    In fact, the tabby looks a lot like our other cat, Gravy…. Did someone steal our cats?

  53. Patricia says:

    “Excuse me, I think you have my stapler…..”

    This definately reminds me of Office Space.

  54. I really hope they don’t move kitty’s desk again, at the very least…or else…you know.

  55. georginaaaaaa says:

    Cute little kittens but I prefer my cats big and stripey. My mom’s friend has from Africa keeps a bunch of real big kittens in her house! Look!

  56. fearthebear says:

    @georginaaaaaa thanks for my link. Cheetahs are my favorite kittehs ever. Wish I had one for my bed!

  57. Katrina says:

    georginaaaaaa-wow. Thanks for the link!

  58. brinnann says:

    Georginaaaaaa I’m so jealous! I’ve always wanted to play with big cats as if they’re just the same as my wee kittehs!

  59. Georgina — to claim I’m not jealous of that lady would be ridiculous, but I do kinda appreciate that our (small) cats use the litterboxes reliably. And we do have curtains (mostly undamaged).

  60. Holy carp! It’s like looking into a mirror. Except instead of a person me, it’s a fuzzy kitty version of me in the morning. The resemblance is uncanny!

  61. It’s like Brazilian Kitteh Jiu-Jitsu

  62. @ Metz, Mary (the first), love your comments!

    Georginaaaaaa- thanks for the link. I am so jealous; I’ve always wanted to live with really big wild cats for a while. Alas, my big doggies will have to do (Newfoundlands).

  63. Kristabelle says:

    Holy Toledo! That lady has my life! 😮 That is amazing. Her JRT must wonder what she’s gotten herself into!!!!

  64. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    Get to work, cat. That sunbeam isn’t going to lie in itself.

    [ 😆 – Ed.]

  65. Paunchie says:

    they had cheetahs on the animal channel the other day. They said they lose 90% of their kills to hyenas!

    Love love LOVE THEM!

    what is a TPS report?

  66. Paunchie says:

    LOL@Argyle! Being a kitteh is such hard work.

  67. When I was twelve, I used to fix the copier at my mom’s office. That was back in the late 70’s and early 80’s when copiers were fairly simple and not computerized to high heaven. Now, every single piece of electronic equipment goes on the fritz if I even breathe on them. Grrrrrr……. Life was simpler when you were younger. Good thing I work for myself as a metal artist, so I get to play with tools all the time.

  68. Are you sure the caption shouldn’t read – For the last time…get OUTTA MY CHAIR!
