Waiter, There’s Cat Hair in My Orange Juice

… and it’s still attached to the cat.



  1. Oh the snoring! Ha. Maybe kitty should have ordered coffee instead…

  2. Proof that humans aren’t the only species that snores…..

  3. warrior rabbit says:

    Well, I’ll say the same thing I said when it was on ICHC yesterday:

    It’s snorange juice!

    Ba-dum dum tsshhhh. Thanks, I’ll be here all week.

  4. Trust a cat to find the best way to sit in a comfortable position — no matter what it encounters. Canny use of the glass…

  5. I read that video’s title as “Catnip in the OJ”. It didn’t seem like it was having its usual effect.

  6. @Shaz: or the lower cross-piece of a dining room chair. Or his/her human’s shoe/foot/hand. Or the stack of textbooks/cookbooks said human is trying to consult……ad infinitum

  7. Queen of Dork says:

    warrior rabbit: Hahaha! Nice joke and drum playing there! Lately, my computer has been totally refusing to play any of these videos so I don’t know what it’s about but I can guess. I think the cat falls asleep with his head propped on that glass of orange juice? The fun thing is that I just get the swirly, swirly symbol thing when I try to play a video but in this one, the swirly thing is spinning perfectly centered over the tip of the cat’s nose. 🙂

  8. It’s like looking in a mirror on Monday mornings! [just add iPod].

  9. Ok, if anyone ever had any doubts…cats.are.weird. I love ’em to death, but WEIRD.

  10. My Stinky once fell asleep with his chin in a bowl of mushroom barley soup. :mrgreen:

    PS: http://instantrimshot.com/

  11. Pessimist cat declares the glass half empty. And the juice was made from concentrate; claims that is was freshly squeezed turned out to be pulp fiction.

  12. Cute video but if I want to hear a cat snoring all I have to do is look on the sofa, my 15 year old cat Mighty Max can out snore any cat on the planet!

  13. probably too much vodka in that screwdriver for Mr Snorries.

  14. Queen of Dork says:

    260Oakley: The answer to is the glass half empty or half full? is this: (ahem) *puts on Yoda costume* Whether you are filling the glass, or emptying the glass, it depends upon.

    *takes off Yoda costume. runs and hides from own dorkiness*

  15. @QoD, if the whole Yoda costume is too hot, you can just wear the ears. :mrgreen:

  16. Queen of Dork says:

    Theresa: That’s a good idea. It WAS getting kind of sweaty in there…

  17. kibblenibble says:

    My Isabella (pictured at right) snores whether she’s awake or asleep! In her case, it’s the smooshie-faced cat syndrome.

  18. Yeah, I’ve had those Sunday mornings. Note that kitty’s party-buddy is lying on the sofa there on the background. Must have been one wild Saturday night.

  19. He was just tie-tie, so he used whatever was closest to help him support his poor exhausted head.

  20. Queen of Dork says:

    tblue: Ahhhhhh, I love that! “to help him support his poor exhausted head” I love that so much. I sometimes feel that way at work. I wish I could tell my boss that I just need my desk at times to support my poor exhausted head. That ROCKS! 🙂

  21. @QoD
    Do not shrink from your dorkiness. Carry it with pride, the way that other Queen carries her industrial-strength-custom-made-I’m-the-Queen-dammit-old-lady handbags.
    (And be sure to say “handbag” in your best Lady Bracknell voice.)

  22. Queen of Dork says:

    Oakley: Okay. Hows this? ‘Ellooooow! Gov’ner, please, my heeand beeag. spit spot. teeah is waiting verily. (or something like that). *does the stiff-handed, white- gloved wave* 🙂

    PS: I Love the British Royal family. I’m just poking a bit of fun here.

  23. Wait a minute. I thought cats hate the smell of orange and citrus fruits. My cats run away whenever and orange is peeled. This cat holds the secret!

  24. Queen of Dork says:

    nycat: really? I never heard of that. Your cats don’t like that smell? hmmmmm. That’s pretty interesting. Do any peeps have info on that? I’ve never tried the peeling of the orange around SamKitty. Well, mostly because I don’t eat enough fruit as I should. I just know that he’s really finicky. But I love to learn new things so this Cats vs Citrus is quite interesting to me. I just know SamKitty adores meat but I don’t know if he is put off with citrus. How fascinating!

  25. @nycat, I was going to say the same thing. I’ve read to use citrus scents when you want to keep kittehs away from things. Maybe this one is weird, even by cat standards.

  26. Recovering Hippie says:

    If the snoring is any indication, I’d say this cat’s olifactory mechanics are *slightlly* out of wack…thus no keen sense of smell. Darn cute though. Especially the “I meant to do that” look when he gets woken up.

  27. Cat attenshons getting game plan:

    1. Human must have orange juice in the morning.
    2. Locate most strategically noticeable position relative to orange juice.
    3. Wait.
    4. If more than 10 seconds pass, sleeping in place is acceptable.

    Human bean will eventually take notice.

  28. I love the way cats can sleep in almost any position! This one is gorgeous and funny. Love the look he gives his person as if to say, What? Just lemme sleep!

    @ Warrior Rabbit (OMG, sudden flashback to Crusader Rabbit! Does anyone else remember the cartoon?) Anyway, WAAAAAHH! I can’t get on ICHC or any of their sites any more. In desperation, I’ve taken to obsessively checking CO all hours of the day and night and clicking on the kitten and puppy links, too. And at Zooborns, their not getting born fast enough for me! Anyone see the baby turtle who looks like he’s wearing armor from ancient Japan?

  29. @quuenOfDork yep. in fact, i used to dab a bit of orange/citrus oil on electrical cables so my kitties would not bite them. I also used it on my kitchen counter so they wouldn’t jump/climb on it. It worked.

  30. The glass is neither half empty or half full. The glass is too big.

  31. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    1) YAY Theresa has AGIN provided us with the WUNNERFUL
    instantrimshot webpage!! The only thinggie on the internet, which competes with Maru or simonscat, in wunnerfulness!!!

    2) @ 2600: quel wunderbar description of Q E II’s handbags!!! Anybody ever told you, you have a way, with words, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm????? 🙂

    3) In re. the original title/ capshon or storyline of the pic.
    IM(h?) O, ’tisn’t that there is CAT HAIR in the ORANGE JUICE, but instead that there is ORANGE JUICE in the Cat’s hair.

    If a tree falls in the forest and nobody hears it ……

    it’s like, totally cosmic, man!!!)

  32. @260O: Was that an Eddie Izzard reference? If so, I bow down to your feetsies. If not, I’ll make one! “Eh f*ck off, I’m the Queen!”

  33. Also, who taped me with my morning OJs? Mondays are just so painful sometimes…

  34. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    and @ warrior rabbit: I know the reference to crusader rabbit & believe that I am of something close to that generation….but I didn’t see it myself…but you are not imagining crusader rabbit.

    “It’s just a little RABBIT…”

    (*Monty Python snerk*…NOT AT YOU, warriorrabbit!!!!…I’m just adding the
    Killer Rabbit, Bit, from MP/ Search/ Holy Grail to the whole rabbit string……..)

  35. Kittehs are EXPERTS at finding comfortable spots, so this vid doesn’t surprise me at all!!! 🙂

  36. Martha in Washington says:

    That must be some damn good orange juice for kitteh to be guarding it so jealously!

  37. I love how the cat looks at the human like HE’s the one with the problem.

  38. Queen of Dork says:

    Hey you guys! Remember the kitty at the end of this thing?

  39. @Snowpea : you’re spot on with the vodka — kyett ees Poleesh. Radio ees speeks Poleesh een backgraounnd. (Lame attempt at outrageous Poleesh akzent.) :mrgreen:

  40. Hahahah! Love it. 🙂

  41. Queen of Dork says:

    I just held my cat. He was cool with it for awhile and (bonus!) he even purred. But then he had enough. And he told me so. He said (and I quote) “Beeyatch. Put me down. Now. Don’t make me get all mideaval on yo’ stupid, punk ass.” Really. That’s what this dumb cat said to me. I’m so insulted.

  42. @queen of Dork : my cat KILLS for (sorry,dutch expression) a piece of mandarin,however no oranges and least of all lemons.

  43. Julie Webster says:

    Typical kitty, “Yeah I’m sleeping on the glass, what of it? Jeez man…”

  44. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh shoot. I can’t get on WordPress anymore so I can’t do my usual name or my picture. Well, I guess this is all for me. I love you all and I hope you’ll be well.

    Queen of Dork

  45. I didn’t think this video could get any funnier…and then I read the comments.

  46. Queen of Dork (argh, I almost contracted your title into “Queerk”), do you have a herd of Corgis like the other Queen?

    You all just THINK that’s an orange juice glass. Its true purpose is OBVY a majestic cat’s chin pedestal!

  47. kibblenibble says:

    But Q of D, I see your comment and your Picasso picture…so you must be able to use it! You make it sound like you are leaving…don’t do that, we love you!

  48. That is sooooo how I feel this morning. Only my glass had a Starbucks Venti Soy Iced Mocha. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

  49. @Kevin, you did read “Catnip in the OJ”. It’s the title super on the video itself. It disappears when you play it. Reload the page and you’ll see it again.

    Kinda freaked me out when I saw someone else had the same hallucination, but then my mind opened and it was clear what the answer had to be.

  50. OMG, did kitteh actually wake itself up with its own snoring? Or did the automatic embarrassment detector (patent pending) go off?

  51. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    @ Tigress:

    LOVE the Embarrassment Detector (PP) !!!!
    Where kin Ah git wun???

    🙂 🙂

  52. fatgrammafinn says:

    any time i want Kitty to go elsewhere and she digs in with all fours, i just THREATEN to get the citrus room spray. zoom an’ gone. except when i put the valerian drops in oj to kill the taste. then i practically have to stand on the kitchen counter to get away from her. i think valerian is 2nd cousin to catnip.

    and I suspect this cat’s name is Catnip. as in, catnip falling asleep in the orange juice, not catnip IN the orange juice.

  53. Only a cat could sleep like this.

    Queenie – You better not be disparaging our Liz, why her Maj and I are like that, crosses fingers, infact I drove past her back garden this afternoon after I had been to the Royal Academy for a private view of paintings from Hungary. Swank Swank.

  54. fatgrammafinn –

    Valerian DOES affect cats in a similar manner as catnip. Sometimes I’ll empty a capsule into a paper bag and let my cats have at it. It stinks like feet, though.

    My cats dislike citrus (and toothpaste!) as well. If I’m cooking and they’re bothering me begging, I’ll ‘offer’ them a bit of lemon if I have it out and they’ll scram. But if there’s anything I’ve learned about cats, its that there is always an exception to the rule, like Mr Catnip McCatnap here.

  55. Citrus doesn’t deter ALL cats. My sister-in-law’s cat once eyed me when I was drinking OJ, and I told her she didn’t want any. She said she did. I dipped my fingertip and let her sniff, and she licked it off. So I poured a little orange juice in a saucer, and she lapped it all up. Wasn’t interested later, but she tried it and thought it was okay.

    We’ve also had a cat whose snoring could be heard in non-adjacent rooms.

  56. Queen of Dork says:

    kibblenibble: It does seem to work now. I can’t begin to tell you how much trouble I’ve been having lately with this idiot computer. I really want to get a new one some day when the budget allows. Which is never. *sigh*

    Hon Glad: I’m waving at you with my white gloves on. I’ll meet you for tea later! (I wish) 🙂

  57. Anonymous Coward says:

    whoa —

    how can this cat fall asleep on top of a glass of ~orange juice?
    all the cats that i have known have found/still find anything citrus totally revolting — that and espresso.

    @Katey — 99.999% of the cats i have met just go bananas for mint, and since it is often found in toothpaste, these felines will like the taste of mint-flavoured toothpaste. one of my girls would be besides herself if she did not get to “wash” my beard of the excess toothpaste. i ended up having to get up a bit earlier on work days to allow time for this “help”.

    but then, she would take showers with me or the wife from time to time, jumping in the bath and standing there, washing herself. i still remembered the first time it happened, my significant other thought it was a rat — the wife was as blind as a bat like i am, which explains the mistake.

  58. fatgrammafinn says:

    @Hon Glad,

    I have been reminded by Robert Mash, Douglas Sutherland, the entire staff of Debrett’s, and the Queen-Empress herself that a proper Therizinosaurus hatchling takes what she is offered. Assam, my favorite! Black please. Lovely. Thank you ever so much. Now, luv, are the Chudley Cannons in with any chance at all this year, or should I put it all on the Tolpuddle Martyrs?

    Yours Ever,

  59. I love the ad that comes up on the video…Florida Premium natural OJ…
    @theresa I had a Main Coon Cat named Stinky!! He was the same cat that tripped our flatcoat maggie and made her summersault across the room. 🙂
    Very Garfield kinda personality.

  60. fargrammafinn – I am afraid the Cudley-Cannons shot there bolt when Hortense Cudley-Cannon wore the same hat as her maj at the last garden party.

  61. Oh dear faux pas The Chudley – Cannons are definately not cuddly.

  62. fatgrammafinn says:

    @hon glad… but Therizinosauruseseses are PLENTY cuddly. which is why i am mentioning them in every post from now on.

    except when we are moulting. then we are fractious.

  63. One of my girls will lick the inside of my glass after I finish drinking lemonade. I caught her slurping it once.

  64. This is a Maine Coon and my cat is half Coon and I’ve seen her fall asleep in her food dish before and she snores. I wonder if its a thing that the breed does 😛

  65. 😆 Kitty, you just proved that cats will sleep anywhere 😆

  66. Mostly that kitty’s saying “get that damn camera outta my face–what’s a cat gotta do to get a nap around here fer chrissakes?”

    Very much disapproving!

  67. Smartiepants says:

    Obviously, Mr. McSnore-glepuss had a rough time at the office party the night before. Poor guy didn’t even get to finish his tequila sunrise!
