Buffy Wears Her Bitterness on Her Sleeve

If you’d like to avoid having to use Bactine on your legs, when you’re done taking this ridiculous picture, I suggest you remove this sweater and return it to Holly Hobbie.

And this better not show up on Buffy’s Facebook page, Cathy O’B.

    I heart you too, kitty! I heart you. Don’t look so stunned.

  2. haha! Look at those little curled up footsies!

  3. What soft, shiny, new little pawpads!

  4. 260Oakley says:

    Another victim of too much cable.

  5. Jess&Friends says:

    I love the little bit of exposed belly fluff. That cat is pretty much just asking to be tickled.

  6. SummerRayn says:

    Aw!! I love her… posture? She’s just kinda like “oof.”

  7. 260Oakley says:

    [yawn] Nice angbore-a sweater, Mom [yawn]

  8. DogEared says:

    i cannot get past the toebeans to see her scowling face.
    really, i CANNOT!

  9. Privacy tail! Bunny back feet! Death stare! Ah kitten, you are after my own heart.

  10. Nicolletta says:

    Bunny feets! *dies*

  11. harmlesslittleflea (Clare) says:

    DogEared, I hear you. They remind me of those Guylian swirly chocolates that mix milk and white.

    I think we need beanhab.

  12. StormCat42 says:

    Kitteh’s all like “Wha? I feel asseep and when I wokes up, I was wearing this! Wha happened???”

    Toe Beans!!!! And Nom Nom Ears!!!

  13. Sweet mother of God thats one cute cat.

  14. OMG i dont think having a cat wear a sweater is good wouldn’t he/she get to warm

  15. Not a lima bean, Buffy! A KIDNEY bean!!

  16. PS That is one PO’d kittyface.

  17. sunnymum says:

    Luckily I was able to cover the rather loud SQUEE that escaped from me since I’m at work. OMG! The whiteness of her forepaws contrasting with the cherry red of the cuffs! She actually looks stunned, as if to say “you’ve lost it this time human, way too far out of line, waaaayyyy toooooooo faaaarrrr!” Happily she looks like a very spoiled little kitteh. 🙂

  18. Saffron says:

    TOE BEANS! nom nom nom nom

  19. This Knit-en Purrr-led her way into our hearts.


  20. Kitteh says: “I never knew I would look so fierce in red! “

  21. Luv the bactine reference! Brings back memories of my child hood. Yes that ages me.

    Also love the attitude.

  22. And.. I would need bactine if I tried to do that with my cat. It would be darn funny. As a child my hand always had kitten scratches from playing with them. Ok I think im done.

  23. Naturalady says:

    Unhappy kitty – anthropomorphically hexing the dresser. Kitties seem to hate clothes. Why must folks tease them this way?

  24. This is why kittehs should not wear clothes!

  25. momtobuffy says:

    awww, my kitty’s name is Buffy and now i want to go come for tickles and cuddles. I don’t think I could ever get a sweater on her.

  26. This kitten’s expression is priceless!

  27. Hon Glad says:

    Kitty – “This picture had better not appear on Cuteoverload”

  28. Trez4500 says:

    In 4 weeks I will be a new kitteh mommy and plan to dress her up like this.

  29. DogEared says:

    hi….my name is Tam….and i’m addicted to toebeans….where does the meeting gather?..i brought snacks, just in case.

  30. DogEared says:

    and, yes i came back to show the pic to one of my co-workers….who is also made that squeeeing noise, right in front of me!

  31. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    I need to submit the pic of my Lucy with the same disgusted look on her face with her zip up Harley Davidson Hoodie…

  32. harmlesslittleflea (Clare) says:

    Hello Tam. I’m Clare and I’ve been a toebean addict… umm… almost since I first found CO several years ago. Phew, I’m glad I got that off my chest.

    …did you bring Jelly Belly?

  33. Saffron says:

    I can stop nomming toe beans any time I want….
    nom nom nom

  34. DogEared says:

    Jelly Belly in all it’s eleventybillion flavors……have a seat Clare, we’re glad you’re here.

  35. harmlesslittleflea (Clare) says:

    *fishes out all the juicy pear flavour ones*

    Saffron, I think you’d better come and join us over here. Tam brought Jelly Belly. It’s like nicotine patches! Only…. more nommable!

  36. Hummm, I say anyone who dares to put clothes on a cat deserves whatever happens to them. And that is NOT a happy poussy.

  37. Mary (the first) says:

    (raising hand) My name is Mary and I’m a toebean addict.

  38. This is not a sweater. This is a sweateuw.

  39. We are not amused.

  40. DogEared says:

    Hi Mary! tell us how it started…..you’re among friends….*passes candy dish to the left*..is it just the black ones that get to you? or the pale pink ones too?

  41. Buffy probably shredded this sweater after the picture was taken!

  42. Does Hollie Hobbie still exist, other than on Ebay?

  43. Mary (the first) says:

    @DogEared.. any beans will do. Licorice are my favorites but root beer, cotton candy or marshmallow are also delicious. The best part is nibbling the beans and then huffing any nearby fur.. tummy.. neck.. etc. Arm pits are a weakness. Also whiskers. I’m trying to taper off with only one bean/fur combo available now.

  44. Noelegy says:

    Like many of you (I’m sure), I call my cats names other than their names. Variations on their names. So Gabby is Gabbita, Mamacita Gabbita, Gabardine, etc. The other day the words “Gabby-toes” came out of my mouth, kind of like when I spontaneously coined “Kittenpants” for Philo, and it stuck.

    Incidentally, Gabby is a calico, and she wants you to know that she has THE most delicious pink-and-black toebeans.

  45. wannadance says:

    what a dejected and resigned looking kitty. with just a touch of rage.

  46. 😈 Buffy the kitty looks like she is thinking of giving the human who put that sweater on her a good smack-down 😈

  47. kibblenibble says:

    “I hate my sweateuw! I hate my sweateuw!” (humbly quoting the one and only Meg)

    If Theo were here, he’d probably link my comment to the post that quote came from, since I don’t know how. *sniff*

  48. so adorable! i love how the sweater was actually made pretty by her owner ^.^<"

  49. at least kitten knows who Holly Hobby is.

  50. Its wrong but so cute. Reminds me of the story “The three little kittens”.

  51. I like the cute privacy tail.

  52. harmlesslittleflea (Clare) says:

    Noelegy, I’m sure we can make room here in beanhab for you. It’s getting a little crowded in here, but… *unstacks another chair*

    Mary, that’s…. that’s just IT. The shiny toebean and soft fur combo. It just… aaargh… *relapses and runs off to find a kitten*

  53. This is one of my foster kittens, Vermont, one of a litter of 4. Pic was taken last week, she’s all of 6 weeks now. Sweatuh is a teddy-bear sweatuh, thought she’d look cute in it. She’s the most out-going of the litter, which is why I dressed her up in it. Not to worry, she was not/is not traumatized by the experience, in spite of her expression!

  54. wannadance says:

    the whole bean thang? it makes me kindly seeeeeek… have a very literal visual imagination


  55. wannadance says:

    when my sister and i were little, we used to dress up our infinitely patient old mama cat. the best thing was the babuska. she looked very qte with her ears gone.

    another funny thing for kids or bored adults: look at each other with faces reversed. i mean one person lies on floor looking up and the other person looks down at others’ face only with faces reversed. then talk. chin is nose, etc.

    it’s hilarious. us crips are hard up for thrills, ah tell yew…

  56. Pink Beans are the best!

  57. harmlesslittleflea (Clare) says:

    wannadance, what I actually do with cats’ feet in real life is gently poke them. If the cat doesn’t mind. It makes me giggle. :o)

  58. harmlesslittleflea (Clare) says:

    Smiley fail. That was trying to be a regular smiley with a big goofy nose.

  59. Daphne Moss says:

    Ummm…isn’t this a boy kitteh?

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

    @ Daphne: now, dear, let’s not make assumptions…could be a pre-surgery transexual kitteh, you know…..

    From the Kitteh Inclusion & Diversity Divison

  61. Queen of Dork says:

    This kitty looks kind of like maybe the sweateuw has driven him slightly insane. His pupils sort of gaze off in opposite directions. Oh well. I think something is coming over me….
    *madly noms my cat’s toe beans*

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

    ….somebody please notify the ACute Resqte Squad,

    ‘cuz, if Q has indeed attempted cuteness toward Samkitty, then those scenes of the Oil Disaster in the Gulf, ain’t NUTHIN’ to the mayhem that will ensue in Nevada tonight….

    (hums tune to “Tonight, tonight, la la la la la la” — etc., from West Side Story)

  63. Queen of Dork says:

    O No: Wait! It gets better! Not only does SamKitty have black toebeans, but Boots is visiting and he has pink toebeans. *nom nom nom nom nom. (burp)* Wow! It’s like having a box of Good-n-Plenties!

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

    YOUNG LADY, was that a (*belch aka burp*) I jist herd?????

    WHY of all the….
    (sputters indignantly and begins to speak in a manner resembling Foghorn Leghorn)

  65. wannadance says:

    clare, the whole deal with the big honkin nose is to recite somethng really serious like from the bible or the constitution or whole lines from ‘lebowski’. the more seriouser, the better.

    of course we were really little. but i still think it’s funny…

    blech. and i say it’s spinach…

    Ever so slight privacy tail fail.

  67. DillPig says:

    Mmm….sweateuw…..toebeans…..modesty tail……mmmmmm…..
