Someone’s Gotta Do It

First the bad news: You seem to have a fuzz ball stuck in your zipper.
Now the good news: For five bucks I’ll be happy to remove it for you.

Meet Dennis, Emma B.’s zippurr zombie.

[And now meet Emma, who likes Tim Gunn, wee Dennis and something on toast.]

    Don’t need five dollars. I will remove this fuzzball for free.
    *scoops up kitty and runs*

  2. Fird Birfle says:

    *looks in both directions for victoreia, who will
    likely chase kibblenibble and steal the kitttech from her….*

  3. Lewis n' Clark says:

    “uh, victoreia called me and asked me to *officially* retrieve said kitteh from the grabby hands of kibblenibble”

  4. Ali-baba says:

    *arranges plush pillows on ground, trips Lewis n Clark, catches kitteh, runs away giggling madly! 😉

    Caution: zippery when pet.

  10. Marshwiggle says:

    Dennis is such a great name for a cat! And he looks very content in that there zipper.

  11. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    Your fuzz removal fees are a LITTLE high, but I will pay five bucks just to hold the kitteh. I will now go get the kitteh from Ali-baba so I can have him remove teh fuzz!
    *snatches kitteh from Ali-baba*

  12. Is this perhaps a cat-sans-rack shot?

  13. warrior rabbit says:

    Barn (door) cat.

  14. GROAN!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Remarkably Yoda-esque, this little one.

  16. Call the fuzz, there’s been a catnapping!

  17. Ali-baba says:

    *inflates cloud pillow, places snoozing kitteh on it, gently pushes it to KB

  18. Ali-baba says:

    Err, I meant KN, natch!

  19. Ali-baba says:

    * puts on hiking boots, gets out Jack Sparrow approved compass, checks rucksack for gorp, starts playing theme from Deliverance on mouth organ, and sets off into them thar hills after GPL

  23. Hello Kitty! 🙂

  24. Mary (the first) says:

    I can never resist kitteh whiskers. It’s one of my favorite parts! And this kitteh’s whiskers are gorgeous!!

  25. Is that cat sleeping? or is that just a cute face?

  26. More than one, if you’ve been following the thread above!!

  27. kibblenibble says:

    Awww. Thanks, Ali. 🙂

  28. Is that a cat in your zipper or are you just happy to see me?

  29. Fird Birfle says:

    See them Tags?? “sleppy” = “sleepy” (in CO langwidge) 🙂

  30. Fird Birfle says:

    “Yes,” and “yes” !!! 🙂

  31. victoreia says:

    Dang! What have I started? (looks around bewilderedly)

  32. victoreia says:

    And….your point would be? (hiding kitten behind her)

  33. And just in time for summer, the fashion world brings us the watercolor kitteh, in pale, barely-there tabby tones, the softest splash of sunlight across a deliciously furry canvas. The whiskerdots are rendered in a bold brown on the top row; the color sofftens to almost nothing by the third row. The whiskers are bright wisps of white that glow like fireflies at a Fourth of July picnic. This kitteh is topped with ears whose shell-pink interiors were surely harvested at yesterday’s low tide. It’s the new summer kitteh. Get yours today.

  34. snorglepup says:

    It’s the perfect wardrobe accessory. I’ll take one in every color!

  35. kibblenibble says:

    Ali-baba.*”QUICK, PULL IT BACK IN BEFORE HE FINDS MAH HIDEOUT oh, wait he has teh special compass, Ah weel just give the kitteh back.” *sigh*

  38. ashagato says:

    you had me at kitteh…but it just got better from there!

  39. Ali-baba says:

    *finds secret hideout, passes GPL the bag of gorp, and a contract for sharing of kitteh—-do Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and bank holidays work for you? Btw, I’m a girl:-)

  40. Ali-baba says:

    I luv this! I also heard Tim Gunn’s voice in my head while I read it. 🙂

  41. Fird Birfle says:

    *is charmed*

  58. Amber Aviva says:

    !!! “checks rucksack for gorp” is now my favorite phrase. It’s so fun to say! I repeated it several times this evening at a party, and my friends were seriously guffawing. You have started a trend. Just thought you should know. Best, A Complete Stranger on the Internets.
