The Happiest Cat on Planet Errf


We have the fantabulous McBrinkersons to thank for this tickle-fest.



  1. She sounds like an engine that’s stalled but is frantically trying to start 🙂

  2. Queen of Dork says:

    Well. Hmmmmmm. The thing I got out of that video is yeah, the cat is cute but I really found myself curious as to what they were watching on the T.V. audible in the background.

  3. kibblenibble says:

    She/he is very cute, I wish I could see him/her better. That is a strange sort of purr/trill/growl and jiggle. Never saw a cat react quite this way. How about the rest of you CO peeps?

  4. kibblenibble says:

    BTW sorry for the thread jack, but my only brother is recovering from surgery in the hospital, and I know he’d heal so much better with all the good energy that you kind CO peeps could send to him. Can you please send good vibes? Thanks!

  5. Queen of Dork says:

    I want to know what they’re watching on T.V. The cat seems happy. But he probably really just wants to watch T.V.

  6. Toehawk! \m/

  7. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh my gosh! kibblenibble, the best of vibes and solid, heartfelt prayers are on their way to you, your family and your brother from me!!!! Please recover and get well, kibblenibble’s brother!!!

  8. What about the feets in the camera?

  9. KN, purrs and all good thoughts on the way for your bro, and for your nerves, too.

  10. Sorry, but I follow the teachings of basement cat, who says that it’s enough for your brother to think positively.

  11. Chewbacca?

  12. KibNib, big hugs to your entire family and speedy healing vibes to your brother.

  13. tenshihi says:

    She’s in heat. My female used to do that until I got her fixed.

  14. I love the purr/meow/rub my tummy sound the kitty is making. 🙂

  15. kibblenibble says:

    Oh! So THAT’S whats going on!

  16. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh. Female cats while in heat can be kind of ummmmmm. hmmmmmmm. gross. (sorry but they are). I’m glad you got your cat fixed, tenshihi! 🙂

  17. Vanilla says:

    My mother had surgery recently so I know how stressful that can be. Prayers going out for you and your brother.

  18. 260Oakley says:

    Tickle-Me Elmeow

  19. DillPig says:

    Mmmm, toebeans. And toe-tufts!

  20. Georgiabelle says:

    Um, yeah this cat is definitely in heat. Sort of weird to watch, IMO =P

  21. Privet, koshka!!

  22. kibblenibble says:

    Thanks, friends. That helps. 🙂

  23. prolly Russian TV, btw.

  24. I *knew* it. I felt like I was invading her privacy.

  25. Good thoughts and prayers for your brother and your family at this difficult time.

  26. dottiebj says:

    Yup, definitely in heat! 🙂

  27. Ali-baba says:

    Absolutely! Good thoughts for a smooth and speedy recovery are headed your brothers way…. Warm fuzzies and hugs to you and your family too.

  28. Sending your bro protection, smiles, happiness and health.

  29. happypiano says:

    know that i know the kitteh is in heat…

    i kind of feel sorry for her =/

  30. devinOmega says:

    That cat is definitely in heat…

    When I thought I wanted to breed cats I had to deal with this. Ooooh the horror.

  31. McBrinkersons says:

    credit where credit is due—Mrs. McBrinkersons found this first!

  32. Vibes and furyy well-wishes beaming to your brother, bursting into his hospital room and exploding into rainbow hearts and glitter waterfalls above his bed.

  33. Hon Glad says:

    My boy cat loves a good belly scratch, but without the sound effects.

  34. Ditto!

  35. I did too!

  36. My boyfriend’s cat likes it when you rub/stroke/tickle her tummy, but she will also generally grab your hand with two, or sometimes all four paws. She’s also a long-hair and this video very much reminded me of her.

  37. That’s adorable but I was really worried till I read she was in heat XD; I’ve never EVER seen a cat act like that, even my old cat didn’t act like that. But yeah, vereh cute.

  38. Can you pet me too, Mr. Magic Hands? Puuuuurrrrrrr.

  39. {{{zapping}}} {{{good vibes}}}

    For your brother kibbnibbs. He’s gonna be great!

  40. Pretty sure that cat is in heat. My mums cat does the same thing.

  41. Extasssseeee! 😀

  42. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    I do believe that the kitty is in heat.

  43. yes…in heat 100%

  44. Rachael says:

    Best thoughts and prayers comin’ at you and your family.

  45. Saffron says:

    Sending good vibes and beamz of love to kibblenibble and your brother!

  46. Mindy Z says:

    I totally thought it looked like a creepy animatronic cat at first. Like, it couldn’t even be real. But I’ve read other comments saying “in heat”… yeah, probably. 🙂

  47. sunshine says:

    When my kitty went into heat, not only did she do this sort of thing, but she would wonder around the house meowing and staring at us plaintively. I always felt sad for her. She was so mystified about her state. Like “Mom why is this happening to meeeeeeeeeee”. She is much happier fixed, and I’m super glad human ladies don’t have to go into heat cause woof, that would suuuuuuuuck.

  48. Oh yeah, in heat. I feel sorry for kitty, she looks like she is having mini-seizures.

  49. Jelledge says:

    EPIC TOEHAWK \n|n/

  50. Colonel Jenna says:

    Done. Now, show him some funny things — like this video! (Unless he’s had abdominal surgery. Trust me, you do not want to laugh after that.) Funny is good medicine.

  51. Totally agree. Definitely the sound a fem cat makes when in heat.

  52. OMG… it’s almost a bit embarrassing to witness this.

  53. sunnylessmum says:

    I remember reading the CO term for toehawk as interdigital toe floof, or idtf. Anyone else remember this? I’m too lazy to look it up in the vocab section.

    I do feel sorry for the kitty, they are miserable in heat. Hope she gets spayed soon. Nice floofy tummy there though. 🙂

  54. starling says:

    Yes, PMT is much more fun.

    Oh wait!

    Personally, I want an on/off switch.

    (by the way, I can’t hear the kitty in that video, just the TV).

  55. Yeah, I was worried about her too – definitely abnormal behaviour, possibly neurologically – based. But then I heard she was in heat and was so relieved. In a way I guess it is a neurological condition. We never kept a cat unneutered long enough to experience this. Poor baby!

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

    While she might feel slightly odd about her state of being, it surely seems evident to me that this kitteh is assuredly NOT miserable or in discomfort.
    She surely wouldn’t be lying on somebody’s legs with her entire belly up if she felt any significant angst or discomfort. Certainly cats can be miserably uncomfortable when they are in heat and it’s great that we want to prevent that when and where possible. This cat is having an enjoyable moment and I enjoyed watching the vid.


  57. This cat reminds me of my cat, too. Mine is a longhair dilute tortie.

  58. AWW, I hope your brother will be feeling better real soon, kibblenibble.

  59. Same here, Queen of Dork.

  60. This really should be labelled NSFW.

  61. We let ours stay unfixed because it was pretty much the only reliable way to keep from being clawed at least part of the time.She looked really confused to us too. IANAV, but I think she got pyometra (sp?) and died horribly on Xmas Eve night 8-and-a-half years ago, because I didn’t realize what was going on until it was too late and I forgot about emergency vets. 😦 So seeing a kitteh like this makes me feel kinda sad. 😦

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

    It is labelled with cyrillic lettering; so Greek, Bosnia, Polish, Russian — something along them lines …

  63. yeah, i felt kind of dirty. :/

  64. spaceage says:

    In Greece Greek alphabet is used (upon which Cyrillic was developed) , in Poland and Bosnia Latin alphabet is used.

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

    wow — cool and nifty data which I didn’t yet know. Thx!!!

  66. DillPig says:

    Yeah! I agree with onh/s/i/D! My gorgeous silver tabby Snowflake was always adorable and got only got more adorable when she was in heat. We did have her desexed after one litter of kittehs, but she still insisted on putting her arms around our necks and snorgling us passionately whenever she could. I miss her and all my kitteh-bebehs who have passed on, soooo moishe. I have no more fur bebehs and I am saddd…

  67. Kathleen in Canada says:

    Here too. I’ve got two female cats (and a male) and I’ve never seen a cat in heat. I was wondering (like a bunch of others LOL) what on earth was going on with this kitty.
