We missed you yesterday, kittehs. We missed you and your ridiculous sleeping ways:


Sleeping CatDownloadedFile-12

All pics are Internet floaters (ew that sounds gross), and mostly thanks to Uncle Wire.

    So THAT’s why we couldn’t find any of ’em yesterday !!!! They were sleeping in….
    and on…..and on top of …. (etc., etc. & so forth)

  2. Yay…cats are back in full force!

  3. Dawn Buchanan says:

    AWWWWWW!! So very sweet……

    Death thought about it.
    “Cats,” he said eventually. “Cats are nice.”

  5. radiator kitty rules!! 🙂

  6. Whew! I hoped so — kitties be back! 🙂

    And I kind of like the return of these old favorites. What’s that lyric about the second time around? True! (Of course, only if the first time around was pretty good!) 😉

  7. Cats are so effing AWESOME!

  8. Hey, I found my Stinky (RB) in the subway.

  9. Welcome back, kittehs! Glad to see you aren’t having the insomnia problem I had last night. Can cats even get insomnia? Probably about as likely as their having low self-esteem, I wager.

  10. Oh, kitties, how I’ve missed you! Kitty napping in terrarium kills me.

    I’m sure the kitty was thinking “Sun lamp! What a great idea! Thank you very moische!”

  11. Welcome Back Kitties

  12. KITTEHS!!!


  13. Aw, I love the first one. So warm!

  14. omg the hovertext on granny smith had me in tears i was laughing so hard, ROFL!!!

  15. hehe… I love the turtle one.. he’s all like “hey duuuuuude, thats my warm spot!”
    Yes, all turtles talk like the ones in Nemo…

  16. *sigh* That’s so much better. I love that one sleeping on the turnstyle. You know it’s warm and vibrates. Also, I bet that turtle’s hacked off!

  17. I love the turnstile picture, how much better to give the cat a stroke, instead of putting your ticket in the barrier.

  18. OMG, radiator kitty!!!!

  19. hurray kittehs!!!!!!!

  20. Oh how I missed the kitties but all these pictures don’t make up for a day without. You need to double your efforts to make this up to us!

  21. I think yesterday was the longest day of my life! Whew!

  22. OMG that cat is sleeping in a tank designed by hoomans to contain enough water to drown her! Viewers with no common sense may get ideas. Wharrgarbl !!!1!!!!111!!!!

  23. Not fair! You bring them back only to tease us with not being able to sleep along with them! You have no idea how tired I am right now. Seeing a series of cat naps is pure torture! I just want to curl up with them too. See, CO does plant ebil thoughts in people’s heads!

  24. kitties work so hard they just need a widdle le nap. zzzzzzzzzz

  25. Oh, kitties are so cute! I want to snorgle all of them. Yet, I am feeling a bit groggy now….sleeeeepy……

  26. Ode to the work force:
    We dust, go to work, go to the bank, clean the tank, its always bumper to bumber traffic, balancing the check book, sorting laundry,gardening, auto repair, apple pickin, makin dinner, balancin the tires…to paintin the porch we do it all.

  27. I agree entirely, Metz. This is torture in its purest and most evil form. I’m so sleepy right now and looking at all these kitties makes me want to…
    *passes out on work keyboard*

  28. So cute.

    Cats are amazing. Period.

  29. sleepy kitty on keyboard picture = NAPTOP.

  30. Leslie (NTA) says:

    April 5k WINS !!!! 🙂

  31. Wow – Monorail Kitty looks like the real life “Sylvester”!

  32. Radiator kitty has found HEAVEN.

  33. Welcome back, kittehs!

  34. Ooh, had to read Hon Glad’s comment a couple of times before I got it. My first interpretation of “give the cat a stroke” was not pretty!

  35. Skippymom – That thought crossed my mind, but at least I didn’t say ” give it a stroke, instead of sticking the ticket in the slot” which I thought might be open to vulgar interpretation.

  36. The photo of the cat in the turtle tank is hilarious… I can only imagine what the turtle was thinking.

    Or not thinking. 😀

  37. I’d say that second-to-last cat looks… tired.

  38. The blue cat is *sleeping* on the dog’s Axis of Snorgle! He’s my new Guru!

  39. Aww, Window Kitteh looks just like my dear departed Steve. Her legs even dangled all floppy like that.

  40. VERY adorable. 🙂

  41. Laura wins!

  42. Cute!

  43. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ Laura — like, OMG, I had to, like, look back & forth a few times btw the photo & your comment, before I, like, got it . Wow. You DO win !!!!!!!
    (& yeah, I’ve never been the SPEEDIEST on the uptake valve !!)
    I used to have a book w/ photos & very astute captions called Punography (it had absoLUTely nothing in the pron direction). You deserve to have a book like that published, of your work !!

  44. Funny how “no cats day” ended up being all about cats anyway.

    [I’m sure it was ALL PART OF THEIR PLAN – Ed.]

  45. They are so cute! Just love the kitten on the keyboard. Thanks for sharing these photos.

  46. Love the Site! Cat’s are great! Thanks for the smile today!

  47. Oh deary, a cat sleeping on a laptop! A Windows laptop that could close and digest poor kitty without warning!!!!!! Can’t you see how frightened he is! Horrendous, inhumane, disgusting! Think of the Children! Seriously, this is great and if anyone give you any flack for any of the pictures, I’ve got a blender-eatin’ kitty who’ll rip their face off.

  48. Juniper Jupiter says:

    As a cat slave and fwend to three at home (not mommy, even though we adopted them, they look at me like they own ME! :D) I welcome back the kittehs on the web, even though they didn’t go anywhere! The “Day Without Cats”, in my opinion…


    Why? Because peeps like us and the furry fwends that own us! That’s why!

  49. These made me smile. It makes me miss my kitty who is at home probaly staring at the fish or maybe trying to entice the dog to chase him. Either way, he always makes time for a nap at the very top of his cat climber (which reaches all the way to the vaulted ceilings).

  50. catloveschanel says:

    yesterday was wierd for me as my name is Cat, so I didn’t know exactly how to be

  51. Gasp, pant — whew!! I can breathe again! Thank heavens the kittehs are back.

    (If you hadn’t slipped us African Dance Cat under the table yesterday, I don’t know what I would’ve done.)

  52. oh, so cute!! 🙂 love all of this photos!!

  53. @Stunbunny: Death got it right!

    And this just goes to show cats will sleep anywhere!

  54. GREAT COLLECTION! Cats are hilarious and the best. What else is there to say?

    My two are sleeping now, as I type. It’s a wonder they’re not already crying for their dinner, actually, so shhhhh…

    I look forward to more on your site, thanks.

  55. Cat like sleeping detected.

  56. Irene Suwarno says:

    I like that cat that sleep on top of the keyboard, cute!!

  57. *siiiiiiiiiggghhhh* If nobody had pointed it out, a day without cats could’ve gone by unnoticed. (Check August 19.) With some exceptions, the only things that *REALLY* make me go squee are doggehs. *sigh* Now I miss puppies. I need ihasahotdog.

  58. YIPEE 😀 The kittties are back 😀

  59. catloveschanel says:

    Whew. Frank the janitor happily told me this morning that he gave away 6 kittens on the Bremerton Ferry Terminal. He made everyone smile. I asked him when. He said, “yesterday” So (6) someones got 6 kitties on the day without kitties.

  60. I am SUCH a sucker for those furry animals!! 🙂

  61. omg im the third one from the top. so cute..made me want to get one 🙂
    thanks so muchhhhhhhhh hahaha loved it!!!!!!!!!!1

  62. I love funny animal pics. mvideos are great too.

  63. If I buy a radiator, do I get to have the radiator kitty as well?? Pleeeeease?

  64. Cute. I absolutely love cats.

  65. wooooww … with those poses, they look sooo cute …

  66. Psychologists would not be needed if everybody had a cat to take care!

  67. Now that we have had our kitty fill. May we have some red pandas and penguins? Pweese…and then some more kitties 🙂

  68. looks nice…

  69. It is so hard to choose which pic is the funniest, but I am going to choose the cat in the turtle tank. Aren’t cats not supposed to like water? I have a 1 year old cat who likes to…. wait for it….. come into the shower with me! She sits on the edge of the tub, but she still gets drenched. Is this unbelievable or what!

  70. ulovphotography says:

    soooo cute!:)

  71. Please, Please, PLEASE put some kind of text (or maybe more than one line return) between the pix – this came through super wide in my email – all the pix on two lines. Maybe just an asterix? Please?

    [Well that’s weird, and obviously it doesn’t work that way in the post… 😕 – Ed.]

  72. “quadruply naptastic” = the best phrase ever!

  73. Love these pictures, especially the cat asleep on top of the dog. Actually they are all too great. I never seem to have the camera when mine do cute things.

  74. I just submitted a GAZILLION job applications online, so this photo series was the perfect mental palate cleanser. Thank you!!

  75. This is our contribution to your list 🙂

    Gutenberg the cat:
    And Inox the cat:

    Enjoy 😉

  76. Pic#8 = dirt nap!

  77. “For Sale…one *designer* plant, complete with fur collar…” These are ALL too cute!

  78. wantruseelingkat says:

    ===gasp=== Don’t know how we did it, but we survived……. it wasn’t easy…….. a day without cats is like…………


    ………….a day without cats!

    (Which, on the Suckitude Scale®, is just about equivalent to a day without chocolate. (Perish the thought.))


  79. “I meant,” said Life bitterly, “what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?”
    Death thought about it.
    “Dogs,” he said eventually. “Dogs are nice.”
    – Big Bad Kitty

    that’s me!!!
    (k, that was random…)

    Anyway adorable pix!
    They make me 🙂

  80. Really funny. I just wrote a “News Article” about a new kitten breed that was deemed ‘too cute.’ I think a few of these could be candidates.

  81. Leslie (NTA) says:

    @ Big Bad Kitty: Also see comment # 4 above (great minds think alike…)

  82. Why is their a CAT on the METRO turnstyle??

  83. Is the cat sleeping on top of the dog a Korat? He looks JUST like my cat…

    He was a feral cat that was dying in my back yard that I brought back to health and eventually adopted. I know he’s not a Russian Blue, but I thought that perhaps he was a Korat? Up until Dorian Grey, I’d never had a cat, so I’m not really sure. haha. If anyone knows, I’d be very curious. If not, it doesn’t matter: I love him just the same. :3

  84. What a great way to begin a Sunday morning! Thank You!
    I have 2 blackcats w/whitepaws and tummies. Spooky and Shadow.
    They are my Angels, Pals and everything else. These pics are a great reminder for all of Us, that we are here to make a positive difference and that we have some great partners…Cats, Dogs, Animals everywhere, to do it With.

  85. Queen Of Dork says:

    I’m going to try to figure out how to post pictures of my cat’s “adorable paw placement”. He is really good at this and I think you all would like it if I shared it. He’s really great at placing his paws in just the perfect adorableness positions.

  86. This made me sad, the turtle has not enough water. Maybe they are changing the water?

  87. Queen Of Dork says:

    I didn’t even notice the turtle at first. I’ll bet he/she will be okay.

  88. Digital Product Reviews says:

    Gotta love it! I have 2 cats and I’ve definitely seem some of those sleeping positions.

  89. But the turtle should be able to dive and swim properly, now he/she can only paddle.

  90. awweeees soo cute :] wuv chu xD

  91. hilmaryoceans says:
