  5. *SQUEE!!!* THIS IS SO ADORABLE I DON’T EVEN HAVE THE WORDS

  6. Natalie says:

    I would love a bed like that! Unfortunately it wouldn’t fit in my apartment. :-(

  7. We have a cling-on! The world’s most adorable cling-on, mind you.

  8. Heart.Exploding.Hurts.So.Bad.

  9. 260Oakley says:

    Purrsian rugs look very classy on St. Bernardwood floors.

  10. Saffron says:

    That is a very groovy shag rug!

  11. This is adorable! It reminded me of that old Warner Brothers cartoon with the dog Marc Antony :)

  12. Wow. Now THAT is some high-grade cute right there. Grade A Prime.

  13. StormCat42 says:

    Nikki, I can’t see the video (work blocks) but I already know which one it is!! It’s the one with the Kitten and the big Bulldog, isn’t it? I LOVE his face when the Kitten is making “fur biscuits” on Marc’s back…. What a sweet video!!!

  14. awwwww that is so cute (don’t telll my animals i said that) most animals would never do that my cats and my dog get along but if one of my cats got on her she would probably freak out

  15. StormCat, yes that’s the one! And when Marc Antony thinks his kitten has been baked into a cookie and puts the cookie on his back… so adorable.

  16. Madame X says:

    Winthorpe’s homage to the (in)famous Burt Reynolds-on-bear-skin Playgirl spread is much cuter than the original…

    (How cute is that the kitteh’s name is Winthorpe? Stinkin’ cute, to quote Theresa!)

  17. Kay, that is ridiculously cute.

  18. tracylee says:

    two very enthusiastic thumbs up, Nikki

  19. Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about! That’ll make a nice addition to the Snickerdoodle Lounge.

    @Madame X #16 – LOL! True!

  20. I almost want to call Matchink!

  21. Hon Glad says:

    Fur rug with built in heating.

  22. Before I looked at the caption the first thought that came to my head was,
    “Wow, that St. Bernard has a Kitteh brooch!

  23. LMAO…hahaha.. “I’m static and thats cling”… hahahaha

  24. DogEared says:

    static.cling.
    FTW!

  25. hellochicadee says:

    Awww so adorable! Puts a smile on my face on this cloudy morning. : )

  26. Oooo, where can I get one? And does it also come in Great Dane and Newfie?

  27. Katrina says:

    Niiiiiiiiiiice, Prongs!

  28. Katiedid says:

    So I guess when dogs go out and get drunk they get kitten tattoos and human girls get butterflies.. I wonder what kitties get… hummm

  29. Both kitten and doggie are beyond huggable. Love it.

  30. flutterbye says:

    Hovertext FTW!

  31. All that scene needs is a mouse or gerbil laying on the cat.

  32. chanpon says:

    Most adorable symbiant ever.

  33. As my old Pappy always said, “Nothin’ too good for a cat.”

  34. So, is tiny kitteh or is big goggie? Or both?

  35. “Purrsian rugs” love it!

    i am sad that i don’t have this nice bed to lay on in my office. it would make being at work so much easier…

  36. Do you think the dog even KNOWS he’s wearing a kitten????

  37. This is FANTASTIC.

  38. LOL Tooo cute :) And 260Oakley Snicker you slay me as always

  39. MiniMoppel says:

    Cat thinks: One day I’m gonna be that big!

    Dog thinks: Dam fleas!

  40. Great bed! A little rumpled, but hey…

  41. That is exactly how my cat Mia sleeps on me at night…except she is no longer that small and I am not yet that big! :D

  42. Snowpea says:

    I’m with Violet: I thought Winthorpe was a dog with a kitty brooch.

  43. Colonel Jenna says:

    My question is, does the dog even know the kitten is there? I think not.

  44. Just wait til the cat starts kneading, claws out…

  45. @Nikki – when I was younger, I found it hard to watch that cartoon because of Mark Anthony’s misery when he thinks the kitty has been baked into cookies!! But I love it anyways.

    I too would like a giant soft warm self-heating dog bed … if it wasn’t for the doggy smell … and a fur coat to wrap myself in while I sleep on it. And claws. :)

  46. Cute photo. I’m not much of an animal photographer, but I sure do enjoy looking at them. Love the size difference between the kitty and St. Bernard (I assume it’s a St. Bernard). Love the companionship between the two. Great Job!

  47. i don’t think the dog even feels a thing.

  48. domanato says:

    awww that cat looks so comfortable on that dog, but watch this cat as he tries to evict this dog from his house…as he obviously doesn’t appreciate his presence there: http://shortform.tv/w/cute/cat-evicts-dog

  49. Suzanne says:

    This is like the kitteh version of the Marilyn Monroe calendar . . . “It’s not true I had nothing on . . . I had the radio on.”

  50. Awwww! I wanna St. Bernard!

  51. I…. HEEEEE!! Uhhhhhhhh… SQUEEEE!! Oh! Speechless! Utterly speechless from the mega-cute!!!

    Thanks! I needed that!

  52. Fishy98 says:

    They’re like the CO version of Master-Blaster from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome!

  53. bookmonstercats says:

    I thought initially, “Good, patient doggy.” Then I thought “S/he probably doesn’t even realise that the kitteh is there.”

  54. Mary (the first) says:

    It’s so sweet the way little motherless ones will find almost anything to be their “Mom” and will snuggle up to him/her… I introduced my two cats that way (years ago), the little babeh kept snuggling up to new big brother while he was asleep. He’d wake up, there she was, HISS GO AWAY! but she’d just look at him with that “huh? I just wanted to snuggle” look. Needless to say it was only a couple of days before he gave up and accepted his new little sister. And they became very snuggly. Not as charming as this big BIG big brother, I admit.

  55. At some point we may as well just have a Marc Anthony tag.

  56. I dunno. to me it looks like the dog got a super-detailed kitten tattoo. LOL what a rebel!

  57. This is FANTASTIC, I tell you!!! >splode<

  58. The Marc Anthony connection is my favourite part. If you watch Monsters, Inc, during the sequence where Sully thinks Boo is being squashed in the garbage crusher, all his reactions and expressions are copied from Marc Anthony’s when he thinks Pussyfoot is being made into cookies. I love that.
    I also love how the kitten is stretched out all long with his little tummy displayed. He feels totally safe. Well, wouldn’t you if the St Bernard was your best friend?

  59. wuyizidi says:

    This kitteh has that “look at me, I’m flying/leaping” look.

  60. What happens in Vegas….

  61. wuyizidi says:

    Okay now I remember where I saw that pose: http://protoboards.theshoppe.com/images/eveready1.gif

  62. starling says:

    Theeerrreeee’s Klingons on the …

    Um, yeah.

  63. Noelegy says:

    Awwwwwwwww!!! Hubby used to want a St. Bernard when we next add another dog to our family (which won’t be for some time, as we have two very big dogs now), but now he says he doesn’t want to deal with any more shaggy shedding dogs and wants a Great Dane. I’ll have to show him this picture to sway him back toward St. Bernies.

  64. Marc Anthony was the first to come to mind when viewing this pic. Then, the famous dog cat and rat stacking animals that have been seen on the news. And ,speaking of rats, all you Ratties fans are in for a treat today, on my blog there’s a giant stuffed animal rat just click: sleeps with stuffed animals at the top for the link.

  65. Wow that kitten looks so much like the kitten I just got. He’s so damn cute!

  66. Queen of Dork says:

    This almost made me melt it’s so cute! Jim’s comment #31 kind of reminded me of something I saw briefly on the news one day about this guy with a dog, a cat and a rat and they all rode on each each other’s backs. Well, not the guy. I loved their names which were Kitty, Mousey and Booger. I don’t know much about this but found this video of them. I hope there’s nothing bad going on here but it seemed cute.

  67. Lerrinus says:

    I second Kar’s Marc Anthony tag!!! ;-)

  68. must be a warm spot

  69. This is the sweetest thing I’ve seen in a while! LOVE these two! :)

  70. :lol: That little kitty looks so comfortable :lol: I bet that dog thinks of that little kitty as his/her baby :lol:

  71. Daphne Moss says:

    I love this! I, too, immediately thought of Pussyfoot and Marc Anthony. That is one of my favorite cartoons EVER.

  72. BlueMenro says:

    That is one comfeh kitteh! This is too cute for words.

  73. Hee Hee. It’s a St. “bear”-nard skin rug :)

  74. I haven’t seen that cartoon before, but the ending immediately made me think of this classic: http://sleepzine.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/02/my_best_friend.jpg

  75. The Dutchess of Cupcake says:

    Are….you…..serious….? That is way too cute.

  76. The naughty tiny cat jumps over the lazy dog!!!

  77. I love this little friends :)))

  78. Nikki, that’s the first thing I thought of when I saw the pic. :)

  79. Katrina says:

    Wouldn’t you just love to run your fingers through that dog’s fur? I would! I can understand why this puddy-tat would want to, too! Clever little puddy-tat! Many a biscuit were made that day…

  80. pamholl says:

  85. heather em says:

  86. Queen of Dork says:

  91. This is wrong :S I mean seriously… interspecies is great but you have to consider the children

  92. Queen of Dork says:

    Cats make themselves at home on ANYTHING. This morning, I was straightening out some paperwok here at the house. (finally got around to this). I was dividing things into three separate subjects: Things to file, things to throw away, and things that need to be shredded. I had everything brilliantly organized into nice neat little paper piles on the floor where I was working. SamKitty walked in, sniffed around a bit, and then quite rudely just plopped himself down on one of the assorted piles. He just lay there for as long as he wanted and refused to move. Good grief. Maybe I should threaten to trade him in for a dog. See how he likes THAT.

  93. Agent99 says:

    Nikki,
    I actually remember this cartoon! I watched the whole thing again and it brought back so many nice childhood memories and I smiled for the entire 7 minutes… Thanks! :o)

  94. adorable!!!!

  95. Does “Prongs” have a last name? I need to cite this picture in a paper.
