  4. That made me laugh so hard (internally, at work) I feel sort of sick.

  5. “I can’t believe it’s NOT butter”

  6. The cat is thinking ( Look at the size of that bed!! You actually got that for ME!!!:O I am in shock!!!

    ( ;) )

  12. it looks like a kitty from a Scream movie

  13. No, surely not, it can’t be, they wouldn’t dare, they are you know, they are.
    They’re gonna feed me OWN BRAND kitty chow, the noive, a cat of my ca-libre.

  14. “WHO shot JR?????”

  15. Erm . . . you’re going out tonight wearing THAT???

  16. Nothing is wrong with the cat’s jaw. The gray fur under cat’s chin creates an illusion that the jaw is open. :)

  17. metsakins says:

    There’s a sale at Penney’s!

  18. The guy who does the “Kitty Is a Bad Mystic” videos needs to get his paws on this one. :)

  19. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    “Wait — Verbal Kint is Keyser Söze?”

  20. GingerBean says:

    First I was like 8)
    Then I was like :)

  21. GingerBean says:

    Hmm that didn’t work. I was going for the googly eyes.

    [Number eight, upper-case letter O. 8O - Ed.]

  22. That little surprised face is too cute! And the comments are cracking me up. Keep ‘em coming, peeps!

  23. “OMG! You are going out in THAT dress?!?!” *blank stare* OoO

  24. Kinda freaky!

  25. mintyheart says:

    trumps surprise kitty… just sayin

  26. PS Close your mouth, you’ll catch flies!

  27. …..and then she says, well, Charlene is going to the dance with Hermie….
    O, you know Hermie, Gladys’s brother, who always dresses kinda of funnee,
    you know, bow-tie and all; then Kayla is all, this is awful, who will I go with,
    at this late date and all, you know, sumebuddy could’ve thought about me; I mean,
    I boughtta dress and all, even ordered a corsage, and charged it to Hermie, becuz I was sure he was going to ask me; then Kayla is all: “Waaaaaaahhh!!!”……… :shock:

  28. Actually that’s…that’s a little creepy…

  29. Maple.Bacon.Cupcake?! Where have you been during my last 8 lives?!

  30. “Soylent Green is Kittehs?!?!?!??”

  31. Fluidstatic says:

    *o*

  32. I hate when my cat makes this face~ I don’t like the thought of him sniffing interesting stuff (like my feet) and being flabbergasted by the smell.

  33. That’s how I looked when I found out who killed Laura Palmer.

  34. “The Bruce Willis character was dead all along?????”

  35. Hmm, if that cat’s actually opening its mouth, then it’s probably feeling a bit hot, or smelling something strange. Looked maybe as though it might be panting.

    S

  36. “I was watching The Crying Game and…OMG”

  37. OK, what exactly is that cat doing? I’ve never seen a cat do that before.

  38. temperance says:

    thanks, amikit! that was kinda freaking me out.

  39. Von Zeppelin says:

    I’ve been thinking about the usual patronizing, imperturbable cat expression. (“What? Am I supposed to be surprised or something? Pbbbt. . . .”)

    It must take some unbelievably stupid human action to get this response.

  40. Eep! This actually freaked me out! It reminded me of the part in “The Grudge” where the little boy first makes his appearance by opening his mouth wide and yowling like a cat!! I could hear that noise in my head watching this kitteh. I SCARED.

  41. I’m leaving thanks to amikit as well. I was really weirded out by this, but now that I know its an optical illusion because of the kitty’s fur, its one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

  42. It kinda freaks me out. Reminds me of the ‘actual footage’ scenes in the movie The Fourth Kind where their mouths/jaws open up all wide and get all creepy.

  43. No tongue or teeth visible? I favor the illusion explanation, that it’s just the marking of his chin fur.

  44. kittytoes says:

    It almost looks like this cat is doing the “Flehman response” thing. But obviously, it is chin fur. Cute!

    [I'd go with your first guess - Ed.]

  45. One Eyed Daruma says:

    I MUST know what was happening on the other side of that camera!

  46. My guess is someone is holding a mouse-flavored lollipop JUST out of frame…

  47. AuntieMame says:

    That’s not chin fur. That’s its mouth. Look at it full screen in YouTube.

  48. I wish people would stop posting kitty reaction videos to reading Tiger Woods text messages.

  49. Munch’s “The Scream” meets Macaulay Culkin in “Home Alone.”

  50. Somebody please edit together a clip of this and dramatic chipmunk STAT.

  51. This is sort of scary to me!

  52. Resriechan says:

    VZ:

    The Punchline from your Comment # 40, above, has been paraphrased in one of the Kitty Wig Entries, in a Hovertext!!!!!

  53. iwannamakeoutwithit says:

    Nice Usual Suspects reference, Ed.! :)

    [If you mean me (Theo), it was actually Mike (NTMTOM) with the Kaiser Soze reference - Ed. (short for Editor)]

  54. I think this requires a new cat-egory: Cute or scary?

  55. girl cat : Mrow?
    me: Mrow?!
    her: mouth agape…
    me: I hope I didn’t say something awful.

    I meow back to her all the time, (usually the same meow she just made)
    and she only gave me the shocked OMG! What did you SAY! look only the one time.

  56. Maybe it has a cold and has to breathe through its mouth?

  57. No, that must be an illusion. And I did look at it full screen, still not convinced. Looks funny tho :)

  58. kokobutterbuns says:

    “That’s what my human has to do 5 days a week??!!??”

  59. Wow she scared me so bad! I too want to know what they’re doing behind the camera.

  60. He’s not surprised, he’s just trying to catch birdies the easy way.

  61. It’s not the fur on his chin you can see the tongue moving inside it’s mouth.
    And it doesn’t have a cold and has to breathe through its mouth, this I know for a fact having had 7 cats with colds as in upper respiratory infections AT THE SAME TIME.
    The latest rescue having infected all the others, had to force feed 3 older ones with a syringe for 2 weeks. So no it does not have a cold, it’s just doing an exagerated version of the Flehman response.

  62. That was SCARY!

  63. Elizabeth says:

    Goodness gracious! This is a scary kitty who’s scene from The Ring was deleted!

  64. Need to splice this OMG cat with the dramatic gopher video

  65. Queen of Dork says:

    This video looked to me like this cat is simply singing opera but the sound didn’t come through.

  66. I seriously LOL’ed. I would like to know how you can get a cat to do that? really.

  67. Oh my goodness it IS an illusion! Clever AND cute … I thought looks and brains were incompatible.

  68. I really don’t think it’s an illusion. Something is seriously wrong with that cat.

  69. cute slash creepy says:

  70. SO CUTE!!!

  71. Oh…ma….gawd……..

  72. “Uhhhh… you’re gonna wear THAT to the pool?”

  73. @ doxnsox –
    I was totally reminded of The Grudge while watching this video! That was the very first thought I had! This cat creeps me out, lol. I don’t buy the illusion explanation that some people have suggested. You can see it *opening* its mouth.

  74. I held mine open the whole time too ;3

  75. @cute slash creepy – that has got to be the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time. Had me laughing out loud so hard, I scared a few people.

  76. :lol: that is so funny!

  77. and cute

  78. :lol: The things people are making up about that kitty’s 8O look :lol:

  79. this video is gross

  80. My tabby does that when he is getting ready to pounce on one of the other two. He gets in pounce posishe and opens his mouth for a few seconds in prepration for chomping on one of the other cats.

    “Coach Belichik is going for it on fourth and five???”
    (sorry…still bitter :) )

    “Fredo, it was you?!”

  81. that’s where babies come from?????

  82. Not sure what to make of this. The Flehmen Response does not last quite so long and is not quite so dramatic, at least in my cats. Does not quite look like chin fur, either. What it most reminds me of is a poor old kitty I had years ago who had a stroke and could not close his jaw. But this is a young cat, and it does not appear to be in any distress.

  83. This brought back memories…my sweet kitty used to give us this look EVERY SINGLE TIME she sniffed anyone’s toes. (Like Trixie’s cat at post 32!) We called it her “dumb look,” and it cracked us up every time. We saw something on TV about the Flehmen response and gave her a little slack after that, but it was still funny. :)

  84. But where are the pretty cat’s teeth?

  85. That was so creepy.

  86. I’m glad that was only 33 seconds long… if I had laughed any longer I may not have been able to recover!!

  87. I think it looks as if the cat wanted to yawn and then forgot he was yawning in the process!
    Don’t you cat owners know this? When your cat does something like clean itself and it is in a real odd position with its legs up and then something else catches their attention and they look at it and forget to put their leg down for a while?
    I think this might have happened.

  88. That made me yawn and I may go on yawning the rest of the day. :)

  89. Sasha's mum says:

    Mystery solved: there’s a follow-up remix of this vid at Today’s Big Thing: http://cuteanimals.todaysbigthing.com/2010/03/25

    (Warning, definitely not G rated!)

  90. Oh, my, god. Becky, look at Ginger’s butt…It is so big.

  91. that was dumer than anything i have ever seen.

  92. Is his jaw broken?

  93. This is driving me crazy! Can somebody please say what is really happening? Is it a furry optical illusion? Is it the Flehman response? Is it a sick kitty? I MUST KNOW!!!

  94. I definitely think it’s just a long Flehmen response – to the person who said it couldn’t be, because their cat never does it that long, my cats definitely do. Usually after they smelled pee on the carpet from another cat (awesome…) I’ve just never been clever enough to bother filming it!!

  95. Looking at the transliteration of the Japanese page linked above, it does seem like the cat owner was worried about this behavior, and posted the video to get some medical advice because the vet was closed. It’s not clear from the site what the result was, other than that the owner was going to take the cat to the hospital the next day. Poor kitty…it definitely changes how I see this video. Wish I knew whether the cat was ok.

  96. slappysquirrel says:

    You work for Keyser Soze?!!?!?!?!?!?

  97. nnnaww………… (apathetic drooling in to a cup)

  98. “Chuck Norris’s real name is CARLOS RAY?!?!?!”

  99. @Acey – HAHA! Yes! Twin Peaks reference! Awesome :)

  100. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    @ Nadine:

    Truly an elegant observation; how profound. wow.

    (*snerkity*)
    (But it’s an affectionate *snerkity*, I promise… :) ..)
