I’m Forever Striking Blows on Bubbles

I’m tellin’ ya, it’s a wonder Glinda the Good Witch made it out of this scene alive.



  1. I will be buying bubbles on the way home from work today for my cat……………..

    Aimee: “I will be buying bubbles on the way home from work today for my cat……………..”

    … and I will be buying a cat on my way home from work today, AND bubbles for it to play with…..

  3. That’s not a bark, it’s a squeeeek.

  5. Ahahaha I lolled :’)

  6. sunnymum says:

    Kitty sounds like my cat when she sees a bird! My cat was interested in bubbles the first few times and then she would just watch me, and now she just ignores the whole thing. Here we are now, entertain us, with continually new things. 🙂

  7. MamaLana says:

    My kitty sounds like that when she sees a teeeeeeeeeny-tiiiiiiiny little bug or fruit fly; so much ado about so little. LOL

  8. Funny, I have the exact same reaction to bubbles.

  9. FYI, some pet stores sell catnip bubbles! (They’re a better idea than regular since they are ‘edible’ and don’t have the soap.) My Nikki loves them 🙂

  10. Hahhaa!! I love how the other kitty just sits there, bemused.

  11. Sweeda88 says:

    Adorable! I wish we could have a kitty where we live. *Tear*

  12. He/she could have joined crazy Christine Wiig in her Lawrence Welk skit last Saturday! Go Betty White!!

  14. @Aimee, definately do. My kittehs LOVE bubbles!

    @lalablu Go to your local animal shelter. go! Go Now! kittehs are standing by!

  15. I love “Time out I gotta clean my foots” … What do you mean, clean your foots? You’re stepping on soap!! 🙂

  16. Ah, kitties are so silly… I have never tried the catnip bubbles with our boys, but it seems like I should.

  17. Catnip Bubbles???? Oh I seriously need to get some of those.

  18. i wonder why only one of the kitties is interested.

  19. Catnip bubbles make my kitties insaaaaaaaaaaaane. SO worth the purchase. Mine make those same noises when attacking bubbles.

  20. I’m wondering when that person who does the talking kitteh videos will notice this! It is ripe for the talking!

  21. Lindsay says:


  22. Yay for the Finding Nemo reference on the hovertext!

  23. dr. berthaservant says:

    Definitely bird chasing sounds. Awesome vid.

  24. domanato says:

    haha I like to catch bubbles too….

  25. OMG that is so cute-funny, I love the little captions too. Had me giggling all the way through. 😀

  26. zyzzyva says:

    Aww. This is adorable.
    Unfortunately my kitty thinks he’s under attack when we try bubbles (just once). He crouched really low in fright/panic and ran and hid. Oh well.

  27. my girl pecan reacts the same way to bubbles, it’s one of our favorite things!!

  28. muttluver says:

    My dog will chase bubbles. It’s hilarious. I love the Finding Nemo reference in the hovertext.

  29. flutterbye says:

    LOL! Luff the markingks on teh kittehs, especially the face on the disinterested one!

  30. That’s no woof, it’s a murf. Or a “Humph!” depending on how you look at it.

    Totally buying bubbles for the kitty now, though.

  31. Sorry no time to post right now I have to run to the store for some bubbles.

  32. chanpon says:

    Cute, but eh, not so much dog barking. My cats make these noises all the time.

  33. Catsquatch says:

    No it does not taste like chicken, it tastes like SOAP.

    But I smiled anyway 😉

  34. The best part is the noises kitteh makes around 0:25 “scary when a bubble lands on your back.” Redonk.

  35. victoreia says:

    [shaking head] Catnip bubbles! 😯

    Note to self: Buy catnip bubbles as soon as the paycheck hits the bank account……

  36. Tomorrow’s payday. I think that I need to check out the catnip bubbles too! That kitty’s so cute.

  37. Queen of Dork says:

    Catnip bubbles? Cool! I learn so much from this delightful site! I want to get some for SamKitty and Loretta. Oh. Except that I actually found out where Loretta lives and with whom. And she’s a he! And his name is really Boots!!! But I still want to get catnip bubbles for Boots and SamKitty!

  38. AHAHAHA!!! I love these cats! so playful X)

  39. revolution724 says:

    OMG brb going to the pet store for catnip bubbles for Frick and Frack.

  40. Lovely. I bought catnip bubbles for my cats last summer and they were completely perplexed & terrified by them. 😦

  41. i need to try this on my cats. they already make those weird noises all the time though…i don’t know what to call it in general, but sometimes it sort of sounds like a turkey so i call it “gobbling.”

  42. they also make bacon scented bubbles for dogs. Too bad Max and Lulu aren’t interested enough in bubbles to try this out…

    Those are officially the two most beautiful cats I have ever seen. I love the bubble popper’s (Lucy’s?) Mask.

  43. Hon Glad says:

    I’m forever miaowing bubbles
    Pretty bubbles in the air.

  44. Space Cowgirl says:

    That cat has one of the sweetest faces I’ve ever seen. I love how the other cat is 98% unconcerned with the proceedings.

  45. I wish my cat would do this. My cat (who just turned two this week!!) is very talkative as well, but he’s also scared of everything (being two and all), so I blew some bubbles for him but he just ran away. Maybe if I tried those catnip bubbles…

  46. Rachael says:

    260Oakley. That’s all I’m sayin’.

  47. bookmonstercats says:

    Love those awesome kitteh markings.

  48. This is so funny! I love how vocal the cat it 🙂

  49. Katrina says:

    I love talking cats. Luv-em.

  50. My Boyz sound like that when they see a bird, squirrel or chipmunk through the window (indoor fur-babies) but the do love the catnip bubbles we bought, and they make some funny sounds then too. Worth the money, believe me!!! 😉

  51. Those noises are called “chattering” – it’s a sound a cat makes when it sees prey it can’t get too, or when it’s frustrated by prey. That’s why so many kittehs (including my Spike) make those sounds at birds and squirrels they see from the window. I imagine Mr. or Miss Adorable Face from the vid is chattering out a general feeling of “WTF?!?” about the bubbles…

    Oh yeah, and that’s possibly the SWEETEST cat face ever!!!!!

  52. I tried catnip bubbles on my cats once… I blew those stinkin bubbles until I passed out and my ungrateful gingers couldn’t have given less of a crap, as usual. Now wadded up post it notes? That they like! I think my cats are broken or something.

  53. Shadowglove says:

    Kittehs are very vocal animals, they do this squeaking noise to show others that there is something of interest there. It’s like kittehs ways of going “Hey, look at that!”

  54. Where is the “Finding Nemo” hovertext at? I watched a couple times, couldn’t find it.. And I hovered all over the place…

  55. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    Lo: Sometimes we add some text that appears when the pointer is held motionless over the image area. It works on most browsers, but may not work on all. It’s never anything more than an extra throwaway joke, so if you don’t see it, you aren’t missing too much.

  56. Our kitty, Moca, does this too! But we call it ‘bleeping’ or ‘chirping’ like: ‘Bleep, bleep!!’ Moca always does it to tiny bugs that get into the apartment…she doesn’t try to hurt them or eat them so we can only assume she’s trying to communicate with them…maybe this kitty in the video thinks the bubbles are alive and they are trying to make friends with them??? …………..’bleep? bleep!!’ -=^..^=-

  57. LOL! Anerable. I love it when kitties say “worm!” and “wackawacka,” a la Kliban cats. Or actually, more like “qua-ack.”

  58. And now I must go buy catnip bubbles.

  59. muttluver says:

    Lo: Your comment made me laugh. The hovertext something like BUBBLES! BUBBLES! BUBBLES! (my bubbles.) And I thought it was hilarious.

    revolution724 : You named your cats Frick and Frack?

  60. 😆 I just love the way those kitties reacted to the bubbles 😆 I did not know that you can get stuff to make catnip bubbles 😀 I will see if they sell anything like that here in British Columbia, Canada 😀

  61. I love the little grumpy sound he makes at the bubbles. My favorite is when he the bubble on the floor pops right at he meows at it. Toooo sweet!! 🙂

  62. Queen of Dork says:

    Yay! My daughter and I went to the pet store and found Catnip Bubbles! Yay! 🙂

  63. That must be so frustrating! But cute to watch

  64. meoof haha its cute bark bark
