Digital Alarm Clock

Payback for every time those giant paws swatted your cheek at 6AM.

Beware of those seriously giant paws, Arlo R.



  1. I think mah head-asplode when those paws just streeeeeeetch out and then foomp. And no comments yet? Are a buncha peeps watchin Lost or something?

  2. fifthsonata says:

    LOVE! The owner is a lot more gentle than I would be – I normally shove my face in the sleeping belleh 🙂

  3. From the size of those paws, I say you’re working on a 14-16 lb. full grown cat. I’d stay on his good side.

  4. this kitteh has cute manners

  5. Awww – it’s how I feel in the morningks – OMG another dang day!

  6. This kitty is the absolute cutest! I’m in love! How many times can I realistically watch this!?

  7. Catastrophe says:

    Awwww! 🙂

  8. Jimbeaux says:

    “Quit it! I’m seeeeeeeepin’!”

  9. oh god! this kitty is so cute! i wanna eat it…but i wont

  10. Dawww! So vulnerabuhls! *blows raspberry on leetle tummy*

  11. I believe sleeping kitties are the greatest thing ever invented.

  12. Lothicat says:

    *squeaks from teh cuteness*

  13. So tie-tie! Kitties are so cute when they’re asleep! It’s impossible to leave them alone, and my kitty sure as hell gets me back for it when I try to sleep in.

  14. Naturalady says:

    I think I can actually feel that precious tummy! This is soooooooooo darling. Yes, watching Lost toooooooooooo.

  15. My Stinky would always sleep with his paws over his eyes, or holding his head, it was so cute, very “World, leave me alone!”

  16. Zzzzzzz…just five more minutes…

  17. zut alors!

    that’s a tres cute kitty-kat.

  18. Is there a name for that move, the little stretch/paws-on-face/tremble thing? My kitty is a grown up kitty (kind of:) and he still does it…Makes me melt every time.

  19. Hon Glad says:

    Kitty just wants to sleep.

  20. This person seems to be having just about as much luck waking this itty bitty kitteh as I have waking my big ones when I’m trying to get revenge for an early morning wake up call. They just ignore me and go right back to sleep. Oh well. Good thing they’re so cute!

  21. That´s it. I don´t think I´ll ever recover from that. Deadly. Kitten. *thud*

  22. 260Oakley says:

    Kitten needs 10 more minutes of sleep, so he hits the mews button.

  23. This clip just captured one of my favorite cat moments ever.

    I love when they do this : its AWSOME.

  24. My favorite animal move ever! I love it when my puppies do it, and this kitty is even cuter than they are! (don’t tell my puppies that)

  25. chanpon says:

    Is that what cats are doing to us at 6am with the paw swats? Telling us they think we’re adorabuhls?

  26. O NO he (she/it) DI-unt says:

    “Fuzzy Wuzzy wuz asleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.”



    Totally unrelated to this post, but: I wanted to pop in and let the CO peeps know that Theo has just completed the first 3 weeks of his 9-week BCT (Basic Combat Training) and is done with the dreaded Red Phase, in which recruits get to “drop and give me 20” for every infraction–and hear that their Drill Sergeant’s grandma, and probably the little kitteh in this post too, could do it better and faster.

    I got to talk to him for 10 minutes yesterday, and he sounded strong & upbeat. He had a rotten miserable week when he came down with bronchitis, but he’s over that now. And despite being the oldest guy in the platoon, he’s keeping up with the young’uns really well–even helping bring up the platoon’s averages in PT, he said.

    Today he starts the 3 weeks of White Phase, which includes marksmanship, obstacle course, and field exercises–all stuff that Theo is likely to excel at. So while it’ll be no easier physically, and will include some long marches that’ll test his endurance, I suspect he’s going to enjoy the challenges more in this phase.

    He’ll have no internet access till mid-July at the earliest, but I regularly paste CO posts into his letters, to keep his spirits up. And guess what? The drill sergeants have to inspect ALL photos they receive, so you can feel good knowing that some of the Army’s finest and toughest are regularly looking at photos of fluffy adorable kitties, puppies, and bunnehs. 🙂

    6 weeks till I see him at Family Day and Graduation!

  28. Am now suffering from serious cute overload. 🙂

    More adorable sleepy kittehs plus possibly the cutest video eveh of sleep boxer puppehs here.

  29. *sleepy boxer puppehs (Oops!)

  30. omg – a cute kitteh AND a teho update! what a way to start Monday. 🙂

  31. First the Kitty Awwwwww!!!!! Love it!!!!! LOVVVVVE!

    Second Theo.. Yay for Teho and hang in there Jaye only a little longer.

    and LOL All those tough Sargents having to look at cute kitties can you not see how this is corrupting their minds… LOLOL!!!!

  32. Saffron says:

    Thanks for the Theo update, Jay. 🙂 🙂

    My head went Ka-BOOM when the little arms straaaaaayche out. Between that and trying to figure out what in the Sam Hill happened on Lost, I have no neurons left.

  33. Go Theo!

    I don’t know how you can not snorgle this little belly.

  34. fifthsonata says:

    Thanks for updating the CO people on Theo!

    Will you include any commentroversies for him just for amusement?

  35. wendy59 says:

    Yay, Theo!!

  36. just so cute. thats what my cat does even if i am not touching but he like senses us coming it’s funny. I have a question why is everyone able to get their cat(s) on tap or get a pic when my cats are funny as hell but they dont act cute and funny on a camera!

  37. For the person that asked if there is an actual name for stretching and yawning: yes – pandiculate.

    And no, I did not read the entire dictionary to find it. I have this book of funny / uncommon words and it was in there.

  38. I need that cat’s address so my surviving family members know where to send the funeral home bill.

  39. Really cute . . . . . but . . . . can we have guinea pigs soon please, people will be getting withdrawal symptoms 🙂

  40. I am Soooooooo jealous of the owner of that hand right now. To pet that floofy chubby little tummy… sigh… must be great

  41. LeAnn (not LeAnna or Lee Ann) says:

    Rats. I saw this vid yesterday morning and was all “EEEEEE, I have to sub-meet this to CO!”, but couldn’t figure out how to do it. Me = Webdork.

  42. blair knight says:

    so adorable

  43. loves2sneeze says:

    digital alarm clock… teehee! clever.

  44. @fifthsonata: The commentroversies recently have been the cougar video (really not easy to insert into a snail mail letter!) and a “rack” photo (for which he could get in trouble, because photos received during BCT are not supposed to have anything sexy/suggestive). So I’ve stuck with Teh Noncontroversial Qte, so far, along with photos of me & the girls & the pets.

  45. Sooooooooooooo adorable!!

  46. Oh. My. Gawd. Cuteness that cute should come with a warning label. Let me try to spoon myself off the floor cuz I done melted.

  47. TUM, rofl!

  48. Rooanne says:

    My heart fewls so warms……..

    Thanks for the Theo update Jaye. I didn’t know it was like prison — having the mail checked!

  49. I can’t watch this anymore because I keep annoying my co-workers with my oohs, ahhs, squeals, laughs, and repeated whining of “I want him I want him I want him.”
    But I really, really do!

  50. OMG! I want to snorgle that belleh!

  51. wuyizidi says:


    Thanks for the update. Glad to know he’s doing well.

    I went to a Microsoft Team Foundation Server demo today, and the person who did the demo is the wife of an army intelligence officer who was involved in capturing Saddam Hussein. One of his major contribution was ditching the big, expensive, but flawed system the army uses to track intelligence, using Excel instead. To this day officers come up to her in parties and say “so xxx is your husband? We’re analyzing his workbook.”

    I think Theo will find that amusing on many levels.

  52. Thanks for the Theo update Jaye. I miss his comments.
    Glad he survived the first 3 weeks. Onwards and upwards!

  53. Jaye,

    Thanks so much for sharing Theo with us. Looking forward to the next update.

    As for the kitten, the paws on the head melted me out of my chair. Then I watched the video of the guy crooning to the boxer pups. I am now a puddle of chocolate goo on the floor……

  54. I hate these quandaries…which to do first, ‘scritchy-belly’ or ‘kissy-nose’.
    Wonder if wee fuzzy one is old enough to purr yet?

  55. Debbieln60 says:

    This is a keeper. I could just watch & watch.
    That li’l peanut is just too cute.

  56. @Jaye 😀 Those “some of the Army’s finest and toughest” of the US Army probably enjoy looking at those pictures of kitties, puppies, etc. knowing that they are protecting them from all the evils of this world 😀

  57. @fifthsonata 😈 I would join you in taking turns on some major tummy snorgling on that little kitty 😈

  58. kibblenibble says:

    Jaye: Thank you, thank you, thank you for the Theo update. Glad to hear he is doing well, and that you are keeping him supplied with teh Qte. 🙂

  59. MamaLana says:

    Oh so cuuuuuuuuuuuuute.

  60. Oh my god. I watched that about 10 times in a row.
    I think I died a little from too much cute.


  62. Katie Kat says:

    OMG… must snorgle that belly! KITTY BELLY!!!!!! (*dies from cute*)

  63. Jerilyn says:

    @kermit – pandiculate, huh? I think that pandiculation may be causing some pandimonium here!

    Jaye, thanks for the update. And the priceless image I now have in my head of grizzled old commanders oohing and aahing over kitty and puppeh pix!

  64. happycat says:

    Jaye: THANK YOU for the theo update! give him our bestest and tell him we miss him here!

  65. victoreia says:

    Thank you for the Theo update, Jaye!

    Oh, and *splode* kitteh……

  66. @hailey – I agree, I never get pictures of my cats being cute. By the time I get the camera, they have stopped whatever they were doing

    (And I think we need a new tag – ‘Theo Update’ – so we don’t miss them! – Thanks Jaye)

  67. Queen of Dork says:

    Yay for the Theo update! I’m glad he is well. Also, not only can I not catch my cat being cute on camera but he usually darts off so quickly that I just get a picture of the carpet. This video is lethally cute!

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

    bwa ha ha/ QoD

    (and…*loving but sneaky snerk* “I mean that [bwa ha ha]
    in THE BEST of all POSSIBLE WAYS”!!)

    (second sneaky but loving snerk)


  69. @Jaye 😀 Glad to hear about Theo 😀 Please tell him that we all wish him well 😀

  70. kekepania says:

    i just died and went to cute heaven

  71. Showed that vid to my cat and she started purring.
