That’s Really Sad

I thought I had heard the electric can opener. But I was wrong.

Woe oh woe, woah-woah, Mr. Sauce-O Jones. Photo by Adrianna V.



  1. Seriously got a little choked up on this one. It is heartbreaking when the people don’t feed you the instant you demand it!

  2. Camivette says:

    Kitty look so sad…why wittle kitty?

  3. Unacceptable. This kitteh is starving!

  4. DogEared says:

    um…i think you have somethin’ on your nose riiiiiggghhhttt there….BEEP

  5. why so sad? feed the cat… hurry!

  6. This could be Shrek’s Puss in boots!! Adorable!

  7. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    Oh look. A cat acting like a dog.

  8. Georgiabelle says:

    Oh. My. God. The reenactment of Shrek’s Puss In Boots. Give this kitty some tuna now!!

  9. Madame X says:

    Sad kitty with butterfly nose…

  10. sunnymums says:

    Completely and utterly unacceptable look on a cat’s face. Must serve kitty! Stat! The whole no shoulders thing is really adding to the patheticness of the look.

  11. Tragic.

  12. My heart is bleeding for this poor starving kitty.
    No really, look there’s a puddle under my chair. 😉

  13. luvstehQte says:

    ohhhh, the perfect chocolate butterfly nosicle…*thud* (iz ded from the Qte)

  14. Neko Moe-Moe! 😦

  15. kibblenibble says:

    Must geev thees kitteh whatever he wants…
    *runs to get can of gushy food and opener*

  16. Kitteh has now locked himself in his room to spend the night listening to Morrissey albums…

  17. Mary (the first) says:

    Like many others, my impulse is to smooch the kitteh on his little spotted nose and then give him whatever, and I do mean WHATEVER, he wants.

  18. Ohh, I can’t stand it. I must give that poor kitty reassuring snuggles. :oO~

  19. Pleeease stop, yer brakin’ my heart over here.
    This is sadder than my cat wailing mournfully when there is a single (stop reading if you’re squeamish) um, “item” in the litter box. Seriously, it only takes one previous use to send him over the edge of all feline reason.

  20. hahahaha

  21. victoreia says:

    Gee, I’ve seen that look. Even time I open a can of soup…..

  22. victoreia says:

    *Every* time. [face-palm]

  23. Walking E says:

    That cat has more of a “Just you wait – I’m going to get you while you’re sleeping” expression than a sad expression. Just my two cents. 🙂

  24. I totally got that. lol.

  25. That’s the very first thing I thought of! Big kitteh pu-peels!

  26. I can’t look without weeping. 😥

  27. AWW 😥 Poor baby 😥 I will feed you 😥

    On a side note, our dear cat, Badger had to go see the vet because she was sleeping lot more than normal for cats 😥 She has been diagnosised with diabetes just 16 days before her 13th birthday 😥 Luckily, our vet, Dr. Lam, was able to give us a prescription to get diabetic pills from a local drug store for her 😀 We are to grind up one pill a day, put in a special diabetes food for cats and make sure only Badger eats the food not Dooley our other cat 😀 Badger is starting to eat more and is becoming more lively 😀

  28. Ali-baba says:

    Yay for Badger! I hope you enjoy many more purrrfectly wonderful years together! 🙂

  29. I’ve been meaning to tell you
    I’ve got this feelin that won’t subside
    I look at you and I fantasize
    You give me tuna tonight
    Now I’ve got it in my sights

    With these hungry eyes
    One look at it and I can’t disguise
    I’ve got hungry eyes
    I want the tuna here and now


  30. Wow… that is
    Straight out of Shrek, Puss N’Boots sad/cute face right there.

  31. Fird Birfle says:

    agreed. absolutely heartbreaking.

    By the way, @ Pyrit : “sad whiskeres” = WIN
    (wait, maybe that’s a self-contradiction, but, how …?)

  32. Fird Birfle says:


  33. Fird Birfle says:


  34. Fird Birfle says:

    wait. Felines sometimes use reason?????? wow ….

  35. Fird Birfle says:

    you might add the flavor “inconsolably” 🙂

  36. awww poor Badger! I’m glad he has a good mommy to take care of him!

  37. Yay for Badger and yay for Badger’s great mommy!

    BTW, one of my dogs gives me that same look when I open a can of tuna. He’s a freaking nut for tuna! I buy the kind without added salt for him because God forbid he should be denied. *eye roll*

  38. jlamusings says:

    for Badger & his mommy! We had a family cat Fritti years ago with diabetes. He lived many years happily snorfing his treat of canned food while we gave him insulin shots. He never even flinched. 🙂

  39. jlamusings says:

    oops – I said “hugs” for Badger. It got cut off!

  40. skippymom says:

    Skippy should take lessons from this cat. When he is begging for food (three minutes after downing a whole bowlful) he just sits silently and looks angelic, not pathetic. Of course it works, anyway, but if he were to look as sad as this guy I might be a few seconds faster with the refill.

  41. bob drummond says:

    I agree! Even i could not ignore that sad look on the
    little guy’s kisser. I hope that they gave him something
    after that look of sorrow! By the way you mentioned
    an animal haing diabetes- well, my sister’s little Dietric
    has diabetes too and he does get shots and takes them
    like a Spartan Warrior-stoictly! Thank God, I take pills
    for my diabetes- I don’t think I could hang around for

  42. Pathetic kitty is pathetic. 😦

  43. My heart is weeping, give him noms.

  44. The eyes have it! Must get up and find some food for kitteh! (After I snuggle him, naturally.) Dogs do that too, but humans are more immune to it. Sad, really, that we’re so used to seeing teh Qte that we overlook it until we check Cute Overload.

  45. he looks traumatized for not getting noms…

  46. warrior rabbit says:

    O No? When did you become Fird?

  47. YES…………beep!

  48. I was thinking the same thing! I bet this cat was the model for Puss’ “oh please” eyes. 🙂

  49. Alice Shortcake says:

    “I’d cut myself if I had thumbs”

  50. minathens says:

    I think he’s related to the kitty who made you a cookie but eated it.

  51. What a beautiful photo of a beautiful cat!!
    Throw the lil’ guy some tuna, whydontcha!??

  52. Aww, dat poor wittle kitty witty! I must nom joo and den gives you da gooshy foods. You’re breaking my wittle heart with that face! >.<

  53. I WANT THIS KITTY!!!!!!

  54. Fird Birfle says:

    Who, moi???

    “See, wha’ ha’ happ’, wuzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz” ….

    Surgery, Fri the 15th or so. [“Ewwwwwwwwww!!!!11!!! That HURT!!11!!!]

    When the doctores decided to revive me (and why they did THAT, we’ll never know 🙂 ), I resumed what tiny smidgeons of daily life I could do, entirely in analog mode for several days. A few days later, when I again decided de regarder La Qte, it seemed time to re-invent meself. Thanks fer askin’ !!!
    Hope your own life has been Spiffy recently 🙂

  55. AWW 😀 Thanks for the hugs for Badger and me, Ali-baba, Sar, Rachael, jlamusings, and bob drummond 😀 Our vet, Dr. Lam, wants to keep her on diabetic pills for a month to see if she will need insulin or not 😀 We are hoping that she can just eat the diabetic cat food which Dooley can eat without any trouble as it has a lot of fiber in it to help fill up a kitty’s tummy 😀

    My brother and his friend are going on vacation for the entire month of May so I will have to keep a close eye on Badger and make sure she eats her special cat food and not Dooley. I will be hiding the food in the cupboard.

  56. victoreia says:

    Gee, Skippy’s really got you trained! 😉 I’ve managed to learn not to fall for the “refill” look…..

  57. Fird Birfle says:

    comme c’est parfait.

  58. Fird Birfle says:

    Also also: This post/ pic & related pitiful cat expression tales, reminds me, of the segments from the Blues Brothers film….

    (setup) THAT BUM John Belushi wadded up, used and left his girlfriend (played by ). When she realizes that he was deliberately playing on her emotions just for his own amusement, and hear he has been released from the penitentiary, she goes after him (with something like an AK-47, perhaps although I haven’t referenced that detail. It ain’t no compact shiny pink girly gun accessory though).

    As soon as he realizes that she’s comin’ after him to blast him away, he goes into Con Man Mode and, in a dark, stank sewer, utilizes the Belushi Eyebrow Defense:
    [Notes: 1- trying this but not sure if internet/ licensing will allow it to land
    2-closest image I could get, to the one I wanted, after 10 min of “the ole’ college try]

    Pathetic Kitteh reminds me of the B.E.D.

  59. Fird Birfle says:

    oops — proofread fail — my bad.

    “Girlfriend/ played by Carrie Fisher”

  60. What’s on his nose? Looks like a teeny black butterfly! 😀

  61. the Hayes clan says:

    Mr. Saucy Ahso!!! we Love and miss you two both! xoxox

  62. 🙂

  63. the Hayes clan says:

    Looks like “Puss in the Boots”!

  64. BatBlaster says:

    I want some fish now. The tuna, the better. (Oh goodness, what a bad pun) Ya see, I’m a kitty, and kitties like fishies (in our bellies). We are like penguins in that regard. I heard today is penguin day on the news, and considering how adorable they are, I’m sure its easy to find something.
