Ca$h ¢ats

It has come to my attention via alert reader Bobbeh, that there is a new site in town, ready to kick our asses:

Cash Cats.


It’s no women laughing alone with salad, but it’ll do.

    Cash cats got nothin’ on CO, Meg!

  2. michelle adams says:

    Please to use some of the muneez to buy Qtips for that last kitty. There is dirt in the earses…..

  3. “Buy me catnip! Buy me tuna!” is what those kitties are saying 😆

  4. Opulence, we has it (russian accent) 🙂

  5. Oh I want the nakid kitty!!

  6. When Dante was a kitten he used to relocate stuff all over the house (not so much anymore). He just used to pick stuff up in his mouth and walk around with it, until he just put it down. One day, he jumped up on the couch with me with a five-dollar bill in his mouth. Good Kitty! 😀

  7. Where do I stuff the dollar bill??

  8. 260Oakley says:

    Hmm, what is one of those cats decides to make a “deposit”? Could give a whole new meaning to the term money laundering.

  10. 260Oakley says:

    In the cat flap, of course.

  11. 260Oakley says:

    Whoops, can a sister get a clean up?

  12. Hey, this is the first time a bald cat is featured on CO, isn’t it?

  13. Bald is such a harsh term. Let’s just call her “hair impaired”….

  14. CO is breaking into nude ground.

    Cats Gloating Alone With Money…yes, it has possibilities.

    Hi Theresa! (waves and smiles). Albert likes to pick up his blingy necklace toy in his mouth, drag it to the couch, jump up there and beat the crap out of it and then flop down onto the floor with it so he can start all over again. I thought I was adopting an adult kitty. He’s really, really big but extremely playful so it’s pretty much like having an enormous kitten dashing about. He hasn’t brought me any money yet though. Nor have I given him any to roll in.

  18. This site used to be fun.

    Now, its all about the Benjamins.

  19. victoreia says:

    Anybody else having a problem viewing the CashCats link?

  20. Sphynxes get dirty earses really easily. My sister has a Sphynx (named Harry!) and she told me that. She has to bathe him because he gets stinkee too. Since they don’t have fur and don’t groom like furred cats, the oils that their skin produce anyway can get a little pee-yew. I offered to crochet him a sweateuw to keep him warm (they used to live in Indiana but have since moved back home to Texas) and she said he couldn’t have anything made of yarn, because he will try to groom it and end up with yarn hairballs!

  21. My 16-and-a-half-year-old calico, Gabby, is having a return bout of the nasty pyelonephritis that she had last year. She had a rather scary seizure last night. The vet gave her a painkiller shot and she’s been sitting in the dining room window all day with this look on her face like, “Whoa. My paws are HUGE.”

    We’ll know Monday when the labwork comes back how things will go for her, but for now at least she’s not in pain. Keep your fingers, toes, and paws crossed for my Gabby-girl. She’s been with me since she was about four months old. I think I could deal with having to let her go; I just don’t want to see her in pain or put her through stress.

  22. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    ….but — au contraire!!! eeeez not “stinky” ….
    eet ‘az a “bouquet”, non? 🙂

  23. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    verr’ nice summary hyah.

  24. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:


  25. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    Hiya Q!!! R U still online? I’m writing about 30 min after you wrote this….will be here for perhaps anudder 30 or so …… 🙂

    *Waves at Albert tha Overgrown Kittayn*

  26. Mary (the first) says:

    I think there have been other follicalley-challenged kittehs because I remember the explanation recently offered about the “dirty” earsies… (I cannot make “follicaly” spell correctly. Sorry. 🙂

  27. Mary (the first) says:

    Awww. Hugs to you and Gabby. Yes, it’s hard to let them go but the pain or stress.. I’m totally in agreement. At that point it has to be about their comfort, not our own. But I do hope she will be ok so it’s not yet a decision that has to be made.

  28. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    @ Angel: I don’t know whether you ever catch Craig Ferguson (CBS, *AFTER* D. Letterman), but he and his skeleton/robot /sidekick Geoffrey Peterson have this bit where they respond to anything with a potential double-entendre, with the following question and a wink:
    “Is that, CODE???”

    I’m wanting to ask that indelicate question, about your inquiry about “stuffing the dollar bill” 😉

  29. Waves and waves of good thoughts to Gaby!

  30. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    From someone who has been called a Librariologist and
    The Research Kid (blows breath into barrel of cute little pink shotgun, then stores it neatly into its blingy holster): – Follically-Challenged – medically speaking.
    Follically-Challenged, Hair Loss. A lack of hair density, hair volume or hair caliber such that coverage of the scalp is visibly depleted.​challenged

  31. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    Izzn’t EVERYthing??

    The cats need their buffet dinner spread, and their rides to the kitty spa ….

  32. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    sympathy, love, snuggles, good karma, rhinestones, sequins, rainbows,
    and anything else of which I di-unt think already in the list, to our WONDERFUL Noelegy and to Gabby. Also, tell Gabby she’s not yet ready to deal with SamKitty, who has gone to Rainbow Heaven Bridge and is presently chewin’ on ceegars (even though they are not allowed in Heaven) and playin’ Strip Poker (also not allowed in Heaven).

    QoD already showed me, his recent Disciplinary Note signed by St. Peter.

  33. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    — or to the term “littering” 🙂

  34. “I got my mind on my money and my money on my mind.”

  35. It’s so hard, we all know what it is. Fingers crossed very hard for you and Gabby.

  36. *Waving @ Albert, too*

  37. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh gosh, Noelegy. I so know what you’re going through and how difficult it is. I am hoping and praying for the best for Gabby. I hope that she is loving looking out the window and perhaps “chattering” at any birds that she sees! YOU take care of YOURself and be kind and gentle to yourself as this is probably stressful. *runs a warm bubble bath for Noelegy filled with nice scents. Feeds Noelegy chocolate and whatever else she likes and gives her a nice pedicure. Fixes dinner and washes the dishes, too. squeaks away down the street*

  38. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    *fixes another warm bubble bath, for QoD*

    Squeaks away down the street in Regulation Squeaky Nurse Shoes and Regulation Starched Nurse Cap.

  39. So thats why the goggie cant be founded….The cat sold her!!

  40. Cats N Cash

    This is how I sleep every night by the way. Nothin like a bed of cold, hard cash!

  41. “Rollin’ down the street, smokin’ Cute-O,
    Sippin’ on mice-n-juice!
    Laid back. . . .”

    (Thing is, these cats are far cuter than most human rappers could ever be.)

  42. My fav is the one on the ATM. hehe

  43. 😀

  44. Good thoughts and prayers comin’ at ya for sweet Gabby. You’re a great mommy so I have no doubt you’ll do the right thing. Just know that we care about both of you. *hug*

  45. Ohhhh, my 2 fav things!
    Don’t worry, you’re the best Cute O!
    Thanks for telling us.

  46. Hey Meg just wanted to say thanks for the link to “Women Laughing with Salad”– hilarious and love the comment stream too. Funny folks over there. Not as funny as the folks over HERE btw (and of course I mean ‘funny’ in a GOOD way!).

    Happy Spring Break to all y’all in Academia!

  47. …and all this time, I thought this was a PG rated site. 😉

  48. I’m worried about the 2nd photo!!!! I would NEVER let one of my kitties put that filthy money in their mouth, Omgad!

  49. Queen of Dork says:

    I thought of that too, Carlisa! I was thinking how dirty money is. But maybe cats have a resistance to dirt and stuff. After all, they do lick (with their tongues) their butts after pooping. Ick. I’m so glad I don’t have to do that. Thank goodness for toilet paper.

  50. Chin scritches to Gabby, and good luck to you both in these tough times. The CO community always has love and support to offer.

  51. AWW 😦 I hope and pray that your dear sweet kitty, Gabby, will be ok, Noelegy (BIG CYBER HUG)

  52. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    wow. never thought we’d come to the point of saying:
    Thank goodness for toilet paper.” !!!111!!!

  53. Money money I want more money I want to roll iin it, ! sleep in it ! play in it!

  54. bookmonstercats says:

    Sings *Folliculi, Follicular* to tune of well-known Neapolitan song.

    Now I has the ear-worm. Gah!

  55. LOL! Yeah…and we don’t have to scratch in a litterbox and wash our feet with our tongues! But on the bright side, you can sit your butt on the table nakeet and noone is all that surprised! hehe!

  56. Thanks for including a sphinx on CO! I am a proud owner of one, and I’m glad that people are beginning to see that they are actually cute and sweet cats.

  57. Yay for Sphynxes!!! I bet nekkid kitteh has one meeeeeeeeeeeeellion dollars.

  58. I can hear Pink Floyd’s song floating around…

  59. Aww, you CO peeps are the best! Thank you so much.

    This morning, Gabby was snuggled into a blanket on the couch and she let me hold her and pet her for a while. I strongly suspect she would have given me all morning to cut that out, but I had to get to work. She was purring and meowing for attention. I’m going to call the vet on my lunch break and see if they’ve found out anything yet.

  60. Heh! I see what you did there.

  61. Oh, I’ve always thought they were cute and sweet, with their wise little squinched-up faces. Since I got to meet my sister’s Sphynx, I’ve fallen in love with them even more.

  62. I don’t wanna ask HOW these pusserkats made this money, either!

  63. (((Noelegy)))) paws crossed for Gabby!

  64. Very fake, glamour shots for “healthy” eating I imagine. Remember the Crying while Eating website? Inane but somehow funny.

  65. psychethos says:

    It certainly doesn’t happen often enough! Bald kitties for the win!

  66. I only wish I’d known about this when I made this video of my kitty a few weeks back:

  67. Thank you all, all over again! Gabby has a nasty urinary tract infection and must be on twice-daily-administered antibiotics for two weeks, and she is feeling feisty enough to let us know exactly what she thinks about that. The big struggle is getting her to drink enough water. She’s so small (6 lbs.) that she gets dehydrated very easily.

  68. Wishin’ all the best for you and yer kitteh!! My Sandycat made it to a realtivley healthy and happy 21 years (albeit stone deaf for the last two or three)! Thinking good thoughts for you both.
