That Little Hangy Thing Looks Like Fun

Yeah, I don’t see a canary down there, so it looks like you’ll be OK. But again, that scenario typically applies to coal mines only, so I’d advise you to see a medical professional for a second opinion.

What, are you just going to gum me to death?

I hope you’re not allergic to floof, Allison L.



  1. Cute kitteh, but that kid has a freaky looking mouth!

  2. Om nom nom!

  3. You might look into a mint. Or some mouthwash. Something.

  4. eastiegirl says:

    FLOOF. Such a cute kitteh. I bet the little hangy thing in there DOES look like fun.

  5. Aww, that kittie looks like my Chloe must have when she was a wee floofball.

  6. Om nom nom *gak*…*cough* ball!

  7. ScoutsMom says:

    This reminds me of the other night when Scout (my kitty) and I were sitting on the couch and I had a really big, long yawn. When I finally closed my mouth, I realized there was a kitty paw inside. I have no idea what made her decide to put her paw in there. Maybe she was going after that little hangy thing??? I don’t know. She’s a weird little girl.

  8. That’s a dust bunny with ears!

  9. Mark Bousquet says:

    This is a preview from the new V series on ABC. LOL

    [What?? She looks nothing like Inara. 😉 – Ed.]

  10. Bedhead! >^.^<

  11. Courtney S. says:

    Inara is an alien! NOOOOO!

  12. AuntieMame says:

    Uvulicious?! BWAH!

    [ 😉 – Ed.]

  13. “Hangy thing” = uvula.

  14. The profile! She keels me!

  15. Mark Twain once said something like, “Holding a cat by the tail teaches you things you can’t otherwise learn.” If that kitty has claws, the gravamen of his thought would apply.

  16. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    This little guy is so young, and he’s already doing uvulectomies. He doesn’t use anesthesia, but that’s okay, because his soft and foofy fur muffles the screaming. I wonder if he’s on my insurance. Blue Claws/Blue Shield?

    [I like the way you think, AD, and it worries me. – Ed.]

  17. Aww, how could you NOT want to gnaw that widdle face?

  18. omgawt…Floofles McFloofersons el Floofage UberAlles Sir Floof, Floof-o-rama.

  19. Pleeeese don’t sneeeeeeze.

  20. My chihuahua does that to me several times a day. Sometimes she sticks her schnozzle in so far I can feel her whiskers on my tongue. But she’s never yet put her paw in there. 🙂

  21. Why does kitty look so calm?!?! ><

  22. . . . Or inhale suddenly,

  23. Ewww, ewww, ewww! That was what the cat said upon sniffing bad breath.

  24. Is that girl about to unhinge her jaw?

  25. @Argyle Donkeypants:
    You quack me up. Blue Claws/Blue Shield. Muhaha.

    You sound suspiciously like a CO editor…

    [Hey now. We are two distinct and separate personalities. – Ed.]

  26. Von Zeppelin says:

    Isn’t that the same kitten who was looking for the pool ball a couple of post ago? Maybe he didn’t find it yet.

  27. Tasty little kitteh, nom nom nom.

  28. HELLO! hello
    HELLO DOWN THERE! hello down there
    ANYONE THERE? anyone there
    ECHO! echo
    NOW BATTING FOR PADRO BORBON borbon . . . MANNY manny MOTA mota

  29. victoreia says:

    @Theresa: “Airplane!” reference FTW!

    And….OMGthefloofyness! [ded]

  30. Miaoosers says:

    What’s the matter kid? Cat got your tongue?

  31. i love kitty profiles. they look so….i don’t know… determined!

  32. BTW– Pedro Borbon pitched for the Cincinnati Reds, Many Mota played for the Dodgers– they were never on the same team.

  33. You all suck. You are animal racist!! I had the same pic up here with my rat doing that and no Awwws.

  34. Hahah! I do the same thing! Except one time my overly curious kitten decided to ‘explore’ and see what was in my mouth. It wasn’t nice for either of us.

  35. and now, the commentroversy for the weekend begins…

  36. It would be really funny if the kitty sneezed.
    Or coughed up a fur ball.

  37. Yeach you don’t know were that paw’s been little girl.

  38. Lily – I believe the term you’re looking for is “speciesist.” A person who believes that some types of animals are cuter than other types of animals is a speciesist. “Rat” is not a race, despite all you may have heard about the “rat race.”

  39. …Or, for that matter, horse races and dog races.

  40. I believe this is an advanced kitty huffing technique.

  41. ew, cat feet. All i can think is “litterbox”, gross.

  42. @Lily I think most people unless they have either had or encountered a pet rat do not know how wonderful they are.

    I was fortunate to have a daughter who wanted a rat and she brought Templeton, A black hoody into our lives, and pretty much all her friends lives, base ball pals and school mates. None of us were ever the same after meeting her. Templeton never met a human she didn’t like. Pretty much everyone who met her thought she was spectacular.
    i suspect your beautiful grey hoody is like that with you.

  43. I like that kitty’s nose profile.

  44. Il Bastardo says:

    A girl without freckles is like a night without stars…


    (though I don’t think I would fancy a floofy lil’ paw in my mouf)

  46. omg.
    iloveputtin’cute thingz in meh mount too

  47. 😈 Kitty is saying “Yep, I see that the mouse I was chasing is NOT inside your mouth.” 😈

    To: The CO Peeps: Following is (alLEGedly) the actual transcript from part of the original SNL Skit (website reference, claims Season 1; May 1976)
    which bears relevance to this fluffy Ear/Nose/Throat Inspector General. And — as a Special Bonus: there is (the beginnings at least) a Knock Knock Joke (Plase see a very recent Post w/ “Mafia Dog At the Peephole” here at CO)

    “Babs’ Uvula”

    Sister…..Laraine Newman
    Babs…..Gilda Radner
    Doctor…..Chevy Chase

    [ open on National Uvula association flash card ]

    Announcer: And now, a public service dramatization from the National Uvula Association.

    [ dissolve to Babs and her sister sitting in their living room ]

    Sister: I’d like to share this with you, Sis. [ opens a greeting card ] “To Babs: It’ll behoove ya’, to care for your uvula! Love, Sis.”

    Babs: Boy, do I hear ya’, Sis! From now on, it’s strictly good, clean fun. For me and my uvula!

    Doctor: That reminds me of a little joke. Knock knock!

    Announcer: Who’s there?

    [ Doctor, Babs and her sister laugh at the surprise interruption ]

    Announcer: The preceding dramatization was brought to you by the National Uvula Association.

  49. So funny to see the reactions this time round, remember the rat/mouth post?

    LOL quite the “different” commentary.

  50. Kinda creepy, as I’ve just been watching the old sc-fi mini series V.

  51. earlybird1 says:

    I am torn! Kitteh is ADORABUHLS! Girl’s mouth is just creeping me out, though! Looks like something from a scary movie! No offense, dear, it’s just so wide open, with no visible teeth and expressionless eyes… EEEEEKK! *runs away and hides under bed*

  52. earlybird1 says:

    It’s like she’s in a trance and isn’t even aware of the kitteh. *shudders*

  53. Resriechan says:

    @ Earlybird1….ma’am…..Just a Helpful Tip:
    “Under the Bed” MIGHT not be the Most Effective Hiding Place….not to further traumatize your morning, but ……remember a little while back, here on CO….??????

  54. skippymom says:

    @Resriechan, I seem to remember Chevy Chase, as the doctor, saying to Gilda Radner something like “I don’t know, Babs, but I do know this: your uvula’s on the fritz.”

  55. @Resriechan, I recall Babs looking like “something the cat dragged in.” The cat! :mrgreen:

  56. skippymom says:

    So, anyway, it’s Halloween now, and I came to the computer fully expecting to see a whole bunch of pictures of pets in costumes or some such…but instead, no new posts yet today? Are our most gracious and exalted overlords too busy with their own preparations for All Hallows festivities?

  57. Resriechan says:

    @ Skippymom & Theresa: yet again the CO’ers prove themselves to be not only Elegant, but ALSO functional !!! Ya both are keeeeee-rect. Actually, Skippymom, you WIN THA “MOSTEST” TOP PRIZE this time…you somehow quoted almost VERBATIM, the next few lines from the transcript. I was trying to take some pity on the Editors who prob. *HATE* me passionately when I post my lengthy items….even when they are direct quotations….so I’ve been making a Noble Effort to only place things which will resonate w/ the Majority as Hum-orous…esp trying to remember that not everyone who opens CO is familiar with some of our ongoing Pop Kulcha Scavenger Hunts…..but yeah your Memoire is Incroyable !!
    I’m glad that both you & Theresa got a kick out of it !! I were ever so slightly worried that there might only be Petrified Wood at my trunk/ roots & others wouldn’t get the Orig. Not Ready for PrimeTime version of SNL !!

    In re No Posts….I can recall, Skippmom, a few weekends back (on a Saturday morning) when QoD entered a Post or two (on the most-recent CO Pic/Post avail at that moment) a few lines, where she channeled a 7-year old girl (maybe a 4-year old?) bouncing up & down on Mom & Dad’s bed: “Mom! Dad! Are you up yet?”

    Our Gracious Editors’ Response? *Snore*
    “It’s Saturday; Go back to watching cartoons on TV. Your Mom and I wanna sleep in today”.

    Then, a couple of hours later, our Lovely QoD repeated the tactic….

    No Lie. Es ist verbatim verdad. If it were easy to remember which critter’s picture was up, when all this occurred, I’d reference the date to ya but…..Ah dunno.

  59. Queen of Dork says:

    Resriechan, Theresa and skippymom: shhhhhhhhhhhh. *whispering* You’ll wake them up. Let’s get cereal. Cartoons are on and we can make a fort in the living room out of the couch, chairs and bed sheets. shhhhhhhhhh.

  60. Resriechan says:

    (oooh, ok. BTW Theresa: partic. witty catch, ya made, there! I don’t think that I even picked up on the “looking like something the cat dragged in” specificitosityiosity or anythin’ !!!” –whispered (ka-ching))

    Check it out, ladies: Bullwinkle & RoadRunner/ Wile E Coyote & Davey & Goliath are ALL on, at the same time. Which one do y’all vote for? )

  61. Well, as long as we are left to our own devices for entertainment, shall we chat about what we are being/doing for Halloween? I am a basic standard-issue witch (’cause I happen to have the hat); yesterday we had a party here at the library for about 45 kids, and that was fun. At 5:00 today I will blow out of here to get home for the expected 100+ T-or-Ters.
    What about y’all?

  62. Doctor Tinycat says “say aaaaaaaah!”

  63. Queen of Dork says:

    Well….I hosted a slumber party last night (six teenage girls). They’re all UP right now. They just woke up and it is immediate chatter and pony tails and giggling. They don’t even have an in betweeen. They go from coma to full sails ahead. They are going to watch scary movies at one of their houses. I’m going to pass out candy. skippymom: I wish I could see your hat!!!

  64. Queen of Dork says:

    Resriechan: LOVE the specificityoiocityosfyussy word you just made up there!

  65. Resriechan says:

    (thanyeverrrmuch, QoD!!)

    In Re. the Day’s Objectives:
    ….Skippymom: Your day sounds much more adventuresome than mine.
    1)I have this dweebish tendency to “RUN AWAY” from all the crowds/noise on days like H’ween & N Y’s Eve…unless to a family or 15-year friend’s event.
    2) Somehow, btw Florida and Las Vegas, over the Internet, a few very wimpy germies from QoD’s Plague of last weekend ….has landed on my computer keyboard & so now I am experiencing a Mini-Plague
    (perhaps it’s only a Pestilence.) No major shutdown exhaustion (*YET*cue ominous music)…
    just an annoying childish sniffle & scratchy throat.
    If QoD is feeling better, then I’m fine w/ a sniffly nose. I’ll live.

    *Runs around spraying Lysol on everything & everyone in reach & begins to do multiple rounds of re-washing dishes & re-running linens in the laundry*

    (Pretty glam, n’est-ce pas?? 😦 😉 )

  66. DaytimeDeb says:

    Nope, coffee doesn’t cure morning breath.

  67. QofD: my hat is black of course, tall and pointy with a big wide brim, and several strands of glittery orange pumpkiny wiry stuff, and a huge fat black spider sitting on the front. It is a splendid hat, and very effective when I let loose with a blood-curdling cackle. Let me know if you ever want to borrow it (perhaps to keep those girls in line at the next sleep-over).

  68. Resriechan says:

    @ Skippymom: VERRY nice !!

    –(Voice from R Moreno, Elec. Co): “HEY YOU GUYYYYY-UYYZ!!!!!”

    As of Just Now:

    The Editors aka the Parents, are “In” & there is INDEED some new post w/ animaux & costumey things now !!!

  69. Resriechan says:

    (ps @ Skippmom — espec. like the orange wirey stuff detail)

  70. Res, I meant to say that the pumpkin wire stuff is wrapped around the hat, just so you are getting the right image.
    (runs back to ogle three-headed dog)

  71. Is CO endorsing Kitten Huffing?! Shocking! (If you haven’t heard the truth about the dangers of Kitten Huffing, I recommend this article: )

  72. Queen of Dork says:

    skippymom: Yes. I would like to borrow the hat and the cackle at the next slumber party. Resrie: I hope you DO NOT have The Crud as it sucks. Off to see the new post!

  73. …can’t stop yawwwwwning…! 😉

  74. Queen of Dork says:

    Uh-oh. I’ve had the Crud. I think Resrie might have it. It’s awful. Share stories?

  75. Kitty thinking…please dont eat me

  76. Careful if she moves her tongue may find out hes got sharper instruments than the dentist!

  77. haha thats funny! thanks for the laugh

  78. Can anyone please tell me what kind of kitty this is….I need a new kitten and I love this particular breed??? If anyone knows, please email me dsbhill [at] shaw [dot] ca



    [Looks like your basic “domestic long hair” kitten to me. In a lovely shade of gray. – Ed.]
