A cautionary reminder, gentle reader: Wherever boxes are casually unpacked and tossed aside, there lies in wait the silent assassin, who strikes unseen with surgical precision. The merciless fiend known only as… Sniper Kitty.



  1. whoa that dude is fast!

  2. toehawk says:

    Wow, I’d never get anything done if I had a kitty like this. Faaar too entertaining.

  3. Wow, you’d better not blink 😀 !

    “SURPRIIIIIIISE! *heart attack* 😮 *thud* Grandma??” lol

  4. Mel Drake says:

    Awww, just what I wanted, a spring-loaded cat!

  5. BStrange says:

    Looks a bit like ninja kitty stole Marshmallow the Bun’s paws. No wonder he’s faster than the speed of disapproval!

  6. the bruce lee of cats

  7. mandy_Reeves says:

    Kitteh is all like….sproing….*finger inches further* Boing! I wish I could be more coherent in my post,but I am just so overcome withthe cutes

  8. “Everybody was kung fu fightin’ those cats was fast as lightnin’ ” :LOL:

  9. Stephanie says:

    better than a jack in the box!

  10. metsakins says:

    whoa, I just would get the waving paw, not a jack in the box. too kyute!

  11. Sakuramaru says:

    I actually yelped out an “Ohmygosh!” when the cat popped out!!! So fast!

    Theresa, you cracked me up!

  12. @Sakumaru, well, I always thought that song would be much better if it was about actual cats. 😉

  13. Hon Glad says:

    Faster than a speeding bullet speedy cat, Mr Hand is pretty quick too.

  14. What? No slightly mechanical rendition of “Pop goes the Weasel?”

    alternately: “I just wanted to juice my steam, but I keep getting attacked by a crazed marshmallow”

    alternate #2: am I the only one who wants to see what would happen if this cat ever met Maru?

  15. Katie Kat says:

    I was distracted by wanting to know what the heck a Steam Juicer is! Then, all of a sudden – BAP! Ha haha!

  16. attack! retreat! Fast!! Repeat!!

    so cute.

  17. cellarmouse says:

    i read somewhere that men are amused by the predictability of humor, women by the surprise; thus i deduce the finger is male, the cat, female … that guy could do this forever – the cat, not so much …

  18. Queen of Dork says:

    I think this is one of my favorite videos I’ve seen on here! That cat is like a white blur. If you blink, you’ll miss him.

  19. marthava says:

    My head hurts from guffawing. That is freaking funny. And *bows to cellarmouse* a surprise indeed. LOL

  20. i wish this was made into a toy! =D

  21. Countess says:

    Reminds me of those trick boxes with the wooden snake–you pull the cover and the snake leaps out to get you–sometimes with a tack for a tongue to “bite” you!

  22. A proud graduate of the Whack-a-Kitty academy.

  23. georgina0912 says:

    Was that a kitty? I am not sure. IT was so fast, all i saw was a white blur coming out of the box and then back inside.


  24. See Mr Schrodinger, this is what happens when you put a cat in a box.

  25. Oh the Schrodinger box! As puzzling a conundrum as a steaming juicer.

    What did cat owners ever do before Youtube? Seriously?

  26. 1. The movie needs a soundtrack. 2. Why isn’t the hand bleeding?

  27. Agent 99 says:

    Holy Moly! Speedy is an understatement!

  28. “Wherever boxes are casually unpacked and tossed aside, there lies in wait the silent assassin, who strikes unseen with surgical precision.”

    reminds me of

    “When hinges creak in doorless chambers and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls, whenever candle lights flicker where the air is deathly still, that is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight.”

  29. And I thought our cats were fast! They’ve got nothing compared to this kitteh. At first I thought the segments with the cat striking were sped up, but then I came to my senses and realized that this kitteh is just Super Speedy McSpeedersons.

  30. I think that cat could be used to take out world terrorist leaders–it is THAT fast! It needs to join up with the CIA, or the FBI, or Tom Cruise in one of those Mission Impossibles.


  31. Holy fast Kitoli!

  32. I think I used to have a bank like that. Not as cute, of course.

  33. domanato says:

    @Berg lol that was what I thought too. Always beware of cats in boxes. Here’s another example of them in boxes–Whack-A-Kitty: Watch one of them climb out of the hole and runs away.

  34. too darn adorable! i couldn’t stop cracking up every time it popped out lol

  35. wow, that was no exaggeration. the kitty IS super fast.

  36. Fleurdamour says:

    Wonder how long it actually went on?

  37. That is one quick kitty!

  38. This is my new favorite thing ever. Ever.

  39. kibblenibble says:

    It’s interesting that we don’t just see the paw coming out. This kitty prefers the “quick-jump-out-and-scare-it-and-then-disappear technique.

  40. Can someone do a screen cap so we can achshually see what the kitteh looks like? It’s so fast I can’t tell! Heh. I guess that’s part of the ammo…

  41. Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weenie says:

    Why was that guy ready to hit back? Not cool…cute kitty!

  42. @cellarmouse (#17): haaaa, good to know and to think… Do you by any chance remember roughly where you read it?

    When reading the good pitch story (hi NTMTOM! ;-p ) I actually can hear Frasier Crane telling it at the radio with his deep voice. Heehee. :-p

  43. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    Holy mackerel! Luurkenschproingen to the max!

  44. Mod-in-Training says:

    [this is what happens when you order one of those japanese kitteh banks from an unscrupulous source.


  45. @gryt: That’s part of kitty’s plan. He’s so fast that you can’t pick him out of a police lineup.

  46. BStrange says:

    corianne @14 – Well NOW I want to see that, yes! Maru “AAH! The box is alive!”

    Kitteh is very adept at striking for the funnybone and not the flesh, too. Reminds me of having paper grocery bag swatting matches (aka “catty cake”) with some of my cats. Me: “light swat to edge of bag.” Kitty In Bag: “bap!bapbapbapgrabgrab!!!, with the razors nicely put away so it’s all soft fluff and toebean goodness.” …repeat until cat gets bored, emerges, rolls over, grabs hand and licks it half to death while halfheartedly bunny kicking.

    I wish I’D thought to try a box with a flap lid!

  47. flutterbye says:

    BStrange, your comment conjures up such wonderful memories of my guys. Forget buying toys – a shopping bag was THE best! I loved coming back from the store and they’d be waiting, all excited, for me to HURRYUPMOM GIVEUSTHEBAGS NOW!!!

  48. Jerilyn says:

    @Hon Glad — Did you mean a “speeding pullet”?

  49. And that’s why UPS (United Pet Senders) doesn’t ship kittehs any more.

  50. Biscuit Tin says:

    I think the kitty LOVED it when Mr Hand tried to grab him; it caused a 2-pawed response.

  51. BStrange says:

    @flutterbye – Mine too. Sometimes they didn’t wait for me to get the groceries out! Mmm, kitty paw-impressions in the bread….

  52. Yep, I totally get the appeal of this game. I could probably play it all day too.

  53. That´s gonna keep me giggling hysterically all day. Brilliant. Absolutely BRILLIANT.

  54. LuvFurBabies says:

    Thats it! The box must stay.

    There is no way that kitty will allow its human to recycle that box.

    It is now part of the family 🙂

  55. Kitty’s name isn’t perhaps Quick-Draw McGraw is it? Good kitty practices safe sniper skills, no claws!

  56. Is that Jack in the box?

  57. Shaylin Meadowbrook says:

    Humm.. methinks no claws… CUTE.. but no claws..

  58. BStrange says:

    You know, it’s almost as funny watching people assume that a clawed cat automatically will draw blood when it swats in play, as it is to watch the cat! I’m thinking these people either have cats with bad claw manners, or no cats at all.

  59. Theresa – “Every kitty was a kung-fu fight’n….their paws were fast as light’n” 🙂

  60. MamaLana says:

    Fast, faster, fastest…………thwack! Cuu-uute!

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

    Yet another case of a biped well-trained by its Overlord.

  62. angel** says:

    Oh noes!! That kitteh is so redonk! It is sooo superbly white and fluffeh!! Xo

  63. Kristen S. says:

    Kitty has a thumb! And is left-handed…er…left-pawed.

  64. Scarleybelle says:

    Whoa! Fasty McFastersons! I’d be really skeert (& addicted to) playing that game. Kinda like, “Tease the kitty, teasy, teasy…EEEEEKKK! Fast Claw McGraw!”

  65. kokobutterbuns says:


  66. Kitty’s got a good left jab, but her right hook needs work.

  67. @Theresa and kk3 😆 You could add to “Every kitty was a kung-fu fight’n….their paws were fast as light’n” are the words 😆 “Different colors of fur were flying and I am not lying.” 😆

  68. deathqueen38 says:

    my box! stay away!

  69. Now new and improved with LIGHT SABER action!

  70. SOO FAST!!

  71. BOING BOING BOING BOING! You don’t need that Jack in the box! throw aside your old dog slinky ( those are overrated, anyways) ! because here comes… THE CAT IN THE BOX! caution: your finger may bleed.

  72. bobthesortofgreat says:

    random sound track follows
    yaaah! its sniper kitty! *gasp*
    kitty: yes, doc finger, it is i who shall foil your plan by defusing your nuclear bomb in under 2 seconds!

  73. hahaha super funny! You could totally put a box with your cat in it on halloween with the words “Pleas Take One” on it 😀 lol!
