Claustrophobic Kitty Meets the Siblings

Wow, I didn’t realize there were so many of you…OK, I’m cool, I’m cool…Um, is anyone else feeling anxious?…No? Nobody else feels like he could just freaking crawl out of his skin?…

Whatever you do, don’t call Dr. Phil, SmithEmma.



  1. MiniMoppel says:

    That red one got paws.

  2. MR Von Suckington is truly in need of a cuddle

  3. That’s it… I am now useless for the rest of the day due to the overwhelming cuteness. I shall simply have to watch this video over and over rather than tackle the accounting.

  4. MarmieLover says:

    wee orange ones… and calico sister… lethally adorabably cute

  5. O NO He/she/it DI-unt!!! says:

    yeh I would imagine that Dr. Phil’s response
    would be something akin to “That hound don’t hunt” or such….

  6. Uilleand says:

    OK…that’s just one ginormous bundle o’ snuggle….


  7. Adorable, but missing one thing…ME! Why aren’t all the kittens piled on ME???????

  8. I love the lack of motor control that results in the “Oh! I am falling! Oh wait! I am lying down but I’m still fallinig” feeling.

  9. Today is my 30th birthday, and a bunch of wobbly kittens is the BEST birthday present EVER!! Especially Mr. Marmie with his wonky eyes and thumb sucking. WHAT is he doing with his paws?!! Killing me, thats what!

  10. Martha in Washington says:

    I’ll take that one please. Oh, and that one too. And also that one. Ok, maybe that one. Oh hell, I’ll just take the whole kitten kaboodle. 🙂

  11. Happy birthday Mela!! Today is my mom’s sixty-oneth birthday 😀

  12. Oh, lordy, the wobbles.
    *shakes open paper grocery bag briskly* Everybody in!

  13. i could watch this for hours !! 😀

  14. Also my husband’s birthday! Felicitations, everyone.

  15. Sweeda88 says:

    That was so sweet, I think I’ve developed a cavity! Love the hovertext =D

  16. Is the kitten blind? My sister had a puppy that would nip at its siblings and paw like that, we found out she was mostly blind.

    Awesome cuteness though.

  17. Heather and the Boston Terriers says:

    Hope all these cutie kittens get good homes. There’s a big pile of ’em.

    They look sweet and fragile but I know better. They will all be MONSTER cats. With of course the appropriate spay/neuter procedure performed. 🙂

    PS. They all look about the same age – are they all from one mommy?? Maybe someone is a foster kitten raiser for a shelter?

  18. Fleurdamour says:

    Thumb sucking and phantom milk kneading – cuteness double whammy. + bonus stripes.

  19. Love the “bobular” stage where they’re moving around, but it’s like it’s constantly… “ugh, my head’s too heavy”, “oomph, that’s not where i intended to put that paw”, “eek, something hanging in the back there just threw me off balance.”

  20. Mod-in-Training says:

    [happy birthday! i hope you didn’t have to work this hard to wriggle free of your own famtangle.


  21. Ker-thud. I will take the thumb sucker and the calico and the black one and oh geez all of them. Too adorable to allow me to finish work today.

  22. He (she?) seems to be wanting to nurse.

  23. Sasha's mum says:


    Love the little calico girl at the beginning, looking at ginger brother as if she’s thinking “Dude, you are seriously messed up.”

  24. Madame X says:

    That’s it. I am officially ded. D.E.D. Drowned in a pool of rainbow barf and glitter drool.

  25. @Sasha’s mum, she’s giving him the “Oh, he’s special” look. 😉

  26. Jay Dee says:

    Best part is at 0:47 where the little black head pops up in the lower right of the pile.

  27. wait a min. There is a calico cat, a orange tabby, a grey tabby, a black kitty, one with orange and white. This momma kitty had the whole spectrum of kitty color types! Is that possible? All is missing is a white kitty.

  28. Love the round Charlie Brown head on that red one!

  29. What is this, TINEE TABBEE Overload? You;re KILLING me here, dude!

  30. I guffawed throughout. First at the little gray and the little calico all “whatcha eatin’ there???”. Then the little black head popping up. Then noticing a really orange one underneath it all, oblivious. All that flopping about. Killer

  31. victoreia says:


    And now I’ll have to watch it again, just to try and count heads!

    p.s. Somebody better tell Teho ’bout the marmie ‘splosion!

  32. victoreia says:

    Anybody count more than eight little fuzzy heads?

  33. Daphne Moss says:

    Happy B-day, Mela and Caitlin’s mom! “-)

    And where to START with this? Are you kidding me? Trembling round-headed earbudness coupled with pointing tentative tailios and THEN there is the all-in-various-stages opening of the eyes … one big wide eye and da little still-opening eye. This is buckets o’cute. Also add hope that every one of deese heah babies gets loving. They all soooo want it…

  34. MamaLana says:

    This is keeping me from working (…..and I’m retired, bwa ha hahaha). Such cuteness and adorableness requires a license!

  35. Andi from NC says:

    @Wend – you’re so right…..I watched it again and thought about your commentary and it threw me into total cute hysterics

  36. Naturalady says:

    @number26 – looks like mommacat was on the dock when the ship came in.

  37. Queen of Dork says:

    Oodles and oodles of skoodle boodles! Wow! I want that thumb sucking, stretching kitten!

    Also, Happy Birthday, Mela and Peeps’ mom and dad! 🙂

  38. They totally need a Kittencam!

  39. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    I don’t think kitteh is blind. I think they are still working on actually getting past the closed eye stage.

  40. Melissa says:

    In two weeks, it’ll be kitty rodeo clown circus!! I love it! They just opened their eyes, lil straight tails, all squirmy……HAAAALLP MEEEeeeeeeee………………..

  41. I need to check my life insurance policy. I don’t think death by FREAKIN’ CUTE is covered. CO, you need to have a disclaimer on the website.

  42. chanpon says:

    Oh my, as wobbly as a drunken sailor! Squeeee

  43. flutterbye says:

    Just way too much cute!! *thud*

  44. Could be a calico or torby (tortie-tabby) mom and a tabby dad… but could be more than one dad to a litter. I think they’re cuter when they’re less wobbly and more “Look out world”, but… man, thats a clowder of kittens. Maybe mom’s off taking a well-earned break. Hope she gets spayed soon– 8 is enough.

    Why is this tagged as “Cats ‘n’ Racks” and “Nightmares”…?!

  45. “can’t control my arms! can’t control my legs!! can’t see! can’t seeeee!!!!”

    kittens make me melt into a big pile of goop. goodness gracious me!

  46. You would think that box is cruising at 70mph and making a sharp turn!

    0:15 calico suddenly falls on his back for no reason. LOL

  47. Cute Overlord says:


  48. 😀 AWW 😀 I would just love to bottel feed each and every baby kitty there 😀

  49. “Let’s see…I got a calico, two marmies, a white and orange, a tabby, and two blacks…is that what you ordered?”

  50. @Rhea – you said eight – oddly – I only counted seven, but so cute and adorable –
    @the lady who shook open a paper carrier to have them dive inside – you seem to have the right idea – but I have here a small shopping basket with a folded scarf – Lady – you have competition – spare me some please.

  51. BStrange says:

    *BEEP* BStrange has been rendered inarticulate by kittensplode. Please try your cute another time. *BEEP*

  52. Hon Glad says:

    I think there are several Dads involved, as their Mom is Dockside Dora the sailor cats

  53. catlover says:

    I don’t get it. Which one is claustrophobic? the orange? Or the gray?

    I’m not nuffing. It’s adorably cute. Those kittens must be just about six weeks old. It’s just… WHICH ONE IS THE CLAUSTROPHOBIC ONE?

  54. I needs to stick my face in there.

  55. OK – I absolutely MUST bite and squish them all……*sigh* how adorable are little baby kitties, and ‘specially the ones who suck their thumbs?

  56. Rachael says:

    Thumb sucking kitteh has kilt me ded.

  57. Shoshona King says:

    I swear that little orange guy is sucking his thumb!

  58. shannomo says:

    I want to be in the pile o’kittens! Love the calico.

  59. Stop breading that mother cat! Her kittens are genetic nightmares! Cats are not supposed to have thumbs and eyes that are not the same size!

  60. Katie Kat says:

    Oh ddddddear! Cuteness has caused me to be ded.


    I think they refer to the little orange boy who is waving his pawsies about – he seems to be struggling for air, I too am a cat lover – and would like to point out to Cathy – it is not necessarily a genetic Defect for a Cat to have an extra toe / thumb if you like to call it that – on his little paw. As for the eyes – they are very new kittens – that is obviously so – their eyes are not regularly open at that young age.

  62. Mod-in-Training says:

    [@patti i’d say that little black head who pops out near the end is the only one who was claustrophobic! ]

  63. blair knight says:

    very adorable!

  64. Whoa. Shaky cam and shaky kittehs has left me seasick with teh cute.

  65. SQUEEE!!! This is the definition of a squirming ball of wormies!

  66. furbabies says:

    AWWWWW! Kittens suck thumbs – who knew? So cute!

  67. Delirium says:

    I’m not an expert, but from what I understand litters from multiple fathers are actually rarer than people think… If the mother’s black and father orange, for example, I believe that all the black/orange/calico combinations are totally legit. The gray is just a “diluted” black (like the difference between bright orange and cream). And I think the tabby pattern is on a different marker.

    So don’t be spreading any rumors about the mama cat and sailors yet, mmmk? 😀

  68. OMG, the calico one inexorably being swallowed by the pile. 0:49-50 “Tell my wife I love heeeerrrrrr! …”

  69. 4 marmies (1 behind the grey never does lift his/her head)
    2 blacks (one under grey and one behind grey)
    1 grey
    1 calico

  70. Malle Babbe says:

    It’s like watching a Slo-Mo Mosh Pit…

  71. Neopatra says:

    Is there anything on EARTH cuter than A KITTEN SUCKING HIS THUMB????

  72. “What do you have there? What’s that? Is it good? Can I have some? Huh?”

  73. FrauMeow says:

    Kittentanglement! Oh, the stretchy paws!

  74. “Killing me softly with his paws”

  75. stephanie mastores says:

    That’s what sharing a room looks like! hahahahahah

  76. flutterbye says:

    I just had to come back and see them again, but still not sure which one I want… will just take ALL !!! *grabby hands*

  77. OK, how come my polydactyl boy never sucked his thumbs? I am feeling seriously cheated out of the cute. I mean, he’s licking them at this very moment, but he has never sucked them.

    Of course, he doesn’t use his thumbs either, which is a good thing because you know they’d only be used for EVIAL!!!!!!

  78. @derz – I am sure the mama is a calico herself. Calicos are pretty much the entire gene pool and can have any and every color of the rainbow kittens. My black and white kitty’s mama was calico. He had 2 black and white, 1 tortie, 1 calico, 2 orange tabbies, 1 all black, and 2 orange and white siblings. Calicos are fabulous!!!!

  79. Oh, let me add. my kitty’s daddy was black and white. He was the ONLY suitor to his momma! Just for clarification. She was NOT a floozie!! 🙂

  80. Jenn in IL says:

    Yes, for goodness sake, please stop breading your cat. Panko crumbs are WAY healthier for you.

    They all look like they’re on X, which is cracking me up. SO cute!!! I wonder if momma’s a Calico girl?

  81. Jenn in IL says:

    “I love, I love, I love my little Calico girrrrrrrl…”

    Okay, I’m done. Promise. 😛

  82. Hon Glad says:

    Jenn in IL – I’ve stopped breading my cats, I use matzo meal.

  83. air-kneading?

  84. kitty lover says:

    I LLLLLLLOVE kittys! I have 3! that….. oh my gosh! ITS SO CUTE!!!!!!!

    P.S. i gonna watch it again….. and again….. ecs.
