Built-In Dream Catcher

Go ahead, dreams, do your best; because these wiry contraptions are built to snag the scariest of nightmares – ones that include furballs and Hoover vacuum’s power nozzle.

    a dollar says those puppies get tangled up regularly…

    “We are such stuff as dreams are made on”.

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

    To slightly veer from the norm here @ Beepville:

    “Boop-boop-a doop!”

  6. The next version of cats will evolve whiskers specifically to detect someone coming in for a beep/boop.

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

    ps hi hon glad; are you living happily ever after?
    Are there Bluebirds of Happiness nearby?

    (Isn’t that ironic that THE BLUES is the songstyle of angst….yet they think that there’s a BlueBIRD of HAPPIness???)

    Discuss amongst yerselves. But no ickiness today; just rainbows & stuff
    Today has been (sigh)> BUT THE WHISKERY FURRY PURRSON shur helped moi!!!

  8. Peter G says:

    Thanks for posting my picture! Here’s another one of that little fluffball.

  9. Is there room under that dreamcatcher of yours? I want to snuggle please!

  10. sleepy kitty bref. aahhhnn.

  11. Padfoot_Lives says:

    So gorgeous!

  12. Beautiful capture of a beautiful kitten. I am partial to tuxedo cats, as my guy is one.

  13. GingerBean says:

    omg, you’ve done it this time CO!

  14. @Peter G: What a little cutie you have there! I love the worried face in the link you posted.

  15. Mary (the first) says:

    I’m a sucker for kitteh whiskers, and this one is a beauty. The black and whiteness is a wonderful bonus. Sigh.

  16. cassandra says:

    *splosion of glitter and rainbows and pink floof* I are ded of cuteness. I LOVE kittens and when they sleep it is precious.

  17. cambridge_rat_mom says:

    I spy with my little left eye…what you’re doing.

  18. One word. BEAUTIFUL

  19. StormCat42 says:

    You just KNOW his tummy’s all warm!!!

    Peter G, love the pics on the link! Those are Peregrines, right? (I think I spelled that wrong, but you get the gist…) Beautiful birds!!

    But back to this sleeping kitty… Anyone else hear slight snoring?

  20. wannadance says:

    my jasmine is a tux kitty with four sets of whiskers which are, bion, longer and floofier than even these…she keeps them all untangled and doesn’t like for me to touch them..she is such a pretty soft kitty and will turn tummy up any time for a gentle rub.

    ah luv mah jasmine…

  21. jlamusings says:

    Oh my.. so cute! And my BFF has had several tuxedos with some magnificent whiskers. One of them, Puck, has often caused us to laugh because his whiskers just remind us of out-of-control old-man eyebrows. 😉 Even better when he’s peer over a table top with his perfectly round eyes.

  22. kristabelle41 says:

    Aaah, too adorable!!

  23. Daphne Moss says:

    I, too, have a lovey-dovey Tuxie at home, and he is the best!
    This beautiful baby Tuxie is sooo content…no doubt fed from mamma (“meehlk mouf” pinkishness is irrefutable evidence). I hope this little one’s life is always this perfectly content!

  24. EEK!! Gobble-gobble! Yum, what a tasty cutie-pie! What torture to not be able to snorgle this morsel in person! Lucky Peter.

    *happy sigh*

  25. Ooo, Oakley, thanks for that earworm, now I got an excuse to dig up and enjoy once again this gem:

    In other news, purdy cat is purdy.

  26. Just like my Angus! He had mad eyebrows like that when he was a kitten… then, somehow, he lost most of them and they grew back black. Except for three white ones on the right and one on the left. Weird or what!??

  27. I think this would be a *MASTERPIECE* if I could see one or two little teef in that mouth gap.

  28. chanpon says:

    Must. snorgle. NOW!!!

  29. whiskers says:

    Ooooh, it’s Fuzzy McWhiskerface! *squee*

  30. MamaLana says:

    @PeterG, you lucky fellow. What a sweetie pie!

  31. victoreia says:

    Okay….nap time! Where’s my kitty-pillow?

  32. Noelegy says:

    Sweet fluffy soft whiskerpuss!

  33. cassandra says:

    OMG @stormcat42 I bet his tummy IS all warm and soft.

  34. Peanut's mama says:

    OMG LEETLE PEENK TUXIE NOSIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. I sooooo want to stick my fingers in all that fluff! I tried, but just knocked over the durned laptop. Scritchyfail.

  36. @Peter G 😀 I would just so LOVE to snorgle and cuddle that little kitty 😀

  37. HRHQueenCat says:

    awwwww, SO sweet 🙂

    I have 3 kittykatz and collect their whiskers – 2 sets of black & one white, all different lengths as my kits range from 7ls to 23lbs

  38. HRHQueenCat says:

    ooopss – typo :r

  39. kibblenibble says:

    Looks like my dear departed Witchie must have looked as a baby. She was the most beautiful cat I’ve ever seen, not-to-mention being my kitty soul-mate. *sniff*

  40. Fishy98 says:

    Peter G: might that gorgeous tuxie with the Einstein whiskers also have a tad too many front toes? The pic of him in the basket makes him look like a Hemingway kitty. 🙂

  41. Hon Glad says:

    Hi “O NO” – Bluebirds are thin on the ground at the moment. I think it’s the dreadful
    weather we have had recently, still the sun is shining today so who knows.

  42. That has got to be one of the safest, softest looking photo of a kitty ever.
    I love his/her delicate pink mouth. I can almost imagine soft little snores.

  43. Katie Kat says:

    OMG… SNOR-GLE! Must kiss that little kitten face……. STAT! *Ded*

  44. @Fishy98 Yep, all of the kittens in this litter are polydactyl like their mom. Apparently it is very common here in New England. They are also all boys!

    @StormCat42 Thanks, yep , the falcons pictures on my website are indeed peregrines.

    @MamaLana I feel extremely lucky!

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

    hey again Hon Glad:
    unf. me has briefly lost me cable tv programming. It’s a (*cough*Overdue*) “little situation”, dontcha know ….therefore thereunto appertainin’….I ain’t been able to feed my usual addictive “gotta know the weather conditions at my favorite places” habit (eg: Yokosuka Japan, ‘old town’ Alexandria Virginia, and QoD’s home zip code).

    So I’ll ask: what types of horrible weder? temps or icky sticky or lots o’ H2o/ rain?

    Surely (yeh, I know “don’t call me Shirley” 😉 ) y’all aren’t still in ded of winter weder,


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

    ooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh kibblenibble

    Ah so sowwy fow yoah huhtin’ hahrt!!!

    WE WOVE WOU (you)


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

    leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetle, teeeeeeeeeensy tiny itty bitty sharpei guy WHO THINKS HE IS KING KONG.

    N. named HIM “angus” (*snerk*)

  48. I want to snorgle this little guy so bad! But I don’t want him to wake.

  49. Hon Glad says:

    Hi, O NO
    We have just had the coldest May for many years,the past weekend was
    a bank holiday weekend, (Monday is included) and was wet and cold,
    However the last two days have been warm and sunny and so my mood improves.

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

    @ HonGlad: well, I”m glad fer/ fur (!) ya…but meantime I’ll letcha in, on a leetle secret
    (no NOT my leeetle frey-und, a leeetle secret, ees deeferent t’ing! 😉 )

    Ah kinnot say that Ah has evuh seen ennything approaching level-headed good hoomer from ye here @ CO.

    Jus’ sayin’

    Spread the Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv, peeps

    (Sing it with me, now!!! “………to a deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelux apartment, in the sky-y-y…”)

  51. N’aw! That reminds me of my little Mina girl when she was a kitten. She was so awkward! She had ridiculous whiskers, had the poofy fuzz fur, and had crossed eyes. hehe She grew into her eyes, at least. 😀

    Here’s a pic that pretty much summed up her awkward kitten years!

  52. Er, linking fail! Here’s the pic.


  53. Squee! Pinkity nosie!

    I’ll bet he sticks those whiskers up his human’s nose in the morning.

    That’s what my “felarms” (feline alarm clocks) do when there’s a food bowl red-alert crisis at 6 a.m.

    Anybody else ever snorfled a whisker?
