I Hear You Knockin’…

0:05: You cannot reach me in my Fortress of Solitude!

1:06: Hah! Your feeble attempts amuse me, young one!

1:40: Wait… that’s not… what are you… uh-oh…



  1. Hey, no fair!!

  2. Emmberrann says:

    Hah! *in sing-song taunting manner* Yew can’t get me! Yew can’t get me! Nyeah, nyeah, nye, nyeah, nyeah!

  3. And this was how a very young Gene Roddenberry first conceived of the idea of a force field to prevent the Klingons from attacking the mother ship.

  4. lurkingsmirk says:

    Poor cat, it looks like it could use a break from the kitty. If only it could carry the box around on its back like a turtle and retreat when needed.

  5. skippymom says:

    I wonder whether this is a parent and child.

    December 26: All across Great Britain, cats are celebrating the ancient rites of Boxing Day.

  7. Here’s another video of these two, having a peaceful moment:

  9. So cute! The little kitty looks frustrated.

  10. Is that a hotel room, or are there real people that use wall coverings like that? English thing, maybe? It almost looks soft, I wonder if the cats can climb it…

  11. But her big sister looks so smug!

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

    [Please read the following in the trademarked “Outrageous Frawnsche Accent”. Merci beaucoup.]

    “Now go away, or I shall taunt you a second time!!!”

  14. Did you see the kitten wink at the camera towards the end?

  15. Gigi (the original one) says:

    I’ve heard of Pheasant Under Glass but Cat Under Plastic, that’s a new one to me 🙂

  16. LOL what a great way to give an older cat a break form a rambunctious kitten.

    My favorite part two cats in the box and the wife says, “i don’t know Honey, I don’t think that is such a good Idea” as kitten tries to pounc on cat in the box.

    I also love how the older cat is all Hah you can’t get me, while looking at the kitten as she pounces on the plastic box,

  17. Peanutcat says:

    LOL, that kitten was having more fun outside the box than in!

  18. “Oh Baby, that’s not a good idea.” Giggle. And with an English accent no less.

    Never seen a cat so serene and calm inside an enclosed space.

  19. Queen of Dork says:

    At the end, it looks like the human is attempting to make and upside-down pineapplekittydarling cake. 🙂

  20. (The Original) Mel says:

    …and I will love you and cuddle you and pester you relentlessly…

  21. This is how Maru got started, isn’t it?

  22. LOL this sounds so yummy!

  23. muttluver says:

    When the guy first takes the lid off the box, does anyone else think the older cat gets an “Oh crap” look on her face?

  24. Mothers of every species will be lining up around the block to get their own isolation chamber for when the kids get out of hand!


  25. At first, of course I’m thinking “Dude, your cat’s in a plastic container. You’re an ass.” Then @1:40…. I understood. It’s not cruel, it’s a kitten free zone 🙂

  26. Keep on knockin but you can’t come in.

  27. i like your tintinnabulation a lot more than poe’s.

  28. I LOVE how the “inside” cat does NOT care at all! lol!!

  30. SheepishKitty says:

    This reminds me of when I was a grade schooler and my cousin was a preschooler. when she got on my nerves, I locked myself in my room, and she kept banging on my door.

  31. I love how when he takes teh lid off the older cat is all HEY PUT THAT LID BACK ON, ARE YOU CRAZY!


  32. victoreia says:


  33. victoreia says:


  34. Monty Python FTW!

  35. Your force field is strong, but I will continue to pounce for the next 15 hrs in case you weaken…

  36. Yikes….can it breath in there ?

  37. OK, I know that this is a redonk level of cute, but we all know that cats need oxygen to survive, right? I just want to know that we’re all on the same page and all. 😉

  38. You did see that the lid wasn’t even sealed, didn’t you?

  39. I just wanted to share a bunny vs. bird video with you all

  40. ROFL! 😉

  41. Awwww2!

  42. my first concern is does that plastic enclosure have any air holes? secondly, why do you invariably get the laughing in the background? that just sort of ruins the entire video and makes the background people, even though identifiable, seem like idiots!

  43. Nice décor!!

  44. It’s flocked!

  45. The Little Myrmidon says:

    Yeah, it’s called “flocked” wallpaper.

  46. The Little Myrmidon says:

    Maybe, but I’m glad someone thought to remove the lid occasionally, so the kitty could get some air.

  47. The Little Myrmidon says:

    My thoughts exactly.

  48. Queen of Dork says:

    The cat is breathing just fine in there. Does he look distressed? No. He looks really calm. I’m pretty sure his humans are not trying to hurt him. Also, the people laughing in the background seem to be laughing because the cats are funny and cracking them up. I don’t think they seem like idiots. The seem to me to be people who love their cats and are laughing at the funny things the cats are doing. I LIKE the sound of people laughing! It sounds so fun and causes me to laugh as well!

  49. Stressfactor says:

    Lid isn’t sealed down and it looks like there might be a crack or something in the front of the box.

    I’m sure that kitty could get air.

    And I’m also reasonably sure the people didn’t leave the kitty in the box unattended.

  50. No. As you can plainly see, both cats are now dead.

  51. warrior rabbit says:

    You invariably get laughing because they’re watching something funny and reacting. Sheesh. Is it really so hard to understand? Turn the sound off if you don’t want to hear it.

  52. I’m always surprised when we don’t hear laughing in the background. If we, as viewers, are laughing at the antics of the cats/puppies/whatever, why aren’t the people that are filming the action laughing? I’m surprised when they can control themselves and refrain from laughing.

    This is a very cute video. I was a little concerned about the kitty in the box, but I was pretty sure she could get out if she wanted to. However, I admit to being relieved when the box was turned upside down.

  53. 😀

  54. Kitten: “I wanna play, I wanna play, I wanna play, I wanna play….”

    Cat: “Hummm.”

    Kitten: “I wanna play, I wanna play, I wanna play, I wanna play….”

    Cat: “Meh.”

    And so on and so forth….. 😀

  55. Same here, The Little Myrmidon 🙂

  56. The lid didn’t seem to be clamped down, so I think the cat could have just stood up if it wanted to. But yeah, that was my first thought too as I watched.

  57. I’m with ya on this…..it wouldnt be ok to do this to a child so its not ok to do it to an animal 😦

  59. psychethos says:

    I spent a lot of time in boxes as a child, and I would always make my mom close the lid (although not seal it, obviously). As long as the situation is being observed, it’s fine.

  60. Completely agree with Queen of Dork!

  61. Anyone who has ever lived with a kitten can totally understand. “Just put me in a BOX, for God’s sake–ANYTHING to get a break!”

  62. instead of “misheard lyrics” i get misread words and i read yours as, “for god’s sakes, just get me a sake.”

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

    🙂 🙂

  64. Kittens are so friggin’ CUTE! Also, thank goodness for woman sense over man need to make the situation even “funnier”.

  65. Well, living with a kitten could definitely drive you to drink, too. I’ll take the box AND the sake.

  66. Cats are notorious for hiding in extremely small spaces to get peace and quiet – I’ve pulled cats out of pillowcases, behind bookshelves, INSIDE pianos… We even had one that somehow managed to hide behind a painting (I kid you not). The older cat seems like it is VERY content with being able to see what’s going on outside and not being bounced on by a hyperactive kitten.

    I’m pretty sure that the older cat climbed into the box on its own – especially considering its unwillingness to leave the box again. The lid might have been put on for fun at first to see if the older cat would react to it – and then grabbing the camera when the kitten immediately tries to find a way through “dees plustic fercefiilt!”

  67. Cutest thing EVARRR!!!

  68. Quiet Desperation says:

    Well, you see, on our planet we laugh at the funny antics of animals rather than sit there stoically silent lest we offend any potential extraterrestrial viewers such as yourself from brutal space empires that have banned happiness. Perhaps you can give us some of your spooky alien technology to allow consumer grade video cameras to automagically filter out the horribly offense laughter sound.

  69. FYI – for the people worrying about whether the older cat is “getting any air” — the box is sitting on a bed, and air can circulate through the bedding to get into the box. It’s not, like, hermetically sealed.

  70. Thank you!!!!!!

  71. ‘Schroedinger’s cat’ begins to take on a new meaning.

    Remember, it doesn’t matter if the cat can breathe – he is both dead AND alive until you open the box. 😉

  72. I so saw that wink! our kitten does that all the time =3

  73. This looks just like my Freida-color, markings and age. Identical! and she has a big brother she pesters constantly.
