Cat Scratch Fever

And our next applicant for the club DJ position goes by the name of “L.E. Katt.” All right, Mr. Katt, whenever you’re ready…


  1. He’s just learning this. Come back in a few weeks for better performance, he said.

  2. bob drummond says:

    WOW !!! I can’t believe it. A feline disc jockey !! What kind of songs does he play ? ( Need a little help here !!!)

  3. bob drummond says:

    Sorry folks ! I should’ve asked what does SHE play !

  4. Stray Cat Strut

  5. baby birdie says:


  6. cholling says:

    Play some MC Skat Cat!

  7. Andi from NC says:

    Actually, this one has me gasping – nice jazz on vinyl – record needles now cost a bazillion dollars – I don’t know that I would be able to video it all without crying….

  8. Patrick says:

    I found it difficult to watch because of this!

  9. Ditto. Kitteh is sooooo adorbs, but ditto.

  10. lavishmango says:


  11. I kept flinching every time the kitty moved the arm. I wouldn’t be like, Oh how cute, I would have been, NOOO Kitty! Get off the turn table!! >.<

    Pretty cat, though. X3

  12. Fird Birfle says:

    Hey Guys!!!

    Sometimes I handle Life via Denial Mode: In this case, I’m wondering/ hoping whether perhaps the person who is owned by this calico kitty, has set up an old, wrecked LP with an old, wrecked stylus for kitteh’s playtime?

  13. earlybird1 says:

    Yes, that’s what I was telling myself too! ;D

  14. victoreia says:

    Me three!

  15. karen m says:

    Agreed. Should have let kitty practice on a disco album.

  16. Theresa says:

    My old turntable has a plastic bubble over it. My tiny little Mimi would sit on that bubble, and gaze at the rotating record with mixed fascination and consternation. She would just plant herself there whenever we played records.

  17. Fird Birfle says:

    “consternation” excellent descriptor of kittayes …

  18. Anonymous Coward says:

    ow, ow, ow — i could not watch this, ‘had to stop before the end.
    kept cringing at the ill treatment the turntable *AND THE CARTRIDGE* were getting from our feline friend, even though this setup is only a fraction of what my own analogue source is worth.

    (btw, new vinyl gear is not that expensive, it is still being made and can go from sub-100usd to over 10,000usd. furthermore, there is still a lot of *new* vinyl being pressed, it’s not just re-issues)

    what you saw is one of the reasons why my music room is closed off from the cats — i’d love to say it’s cute, but, aaaaaaaarrrrggggghhhh!!!!!

    i just hope Fird Birfle is right, that it’s a sacrificial turntable (and record) for the cat’s enjoyment.

  19. Exactly! Please tell me this wasn’t an Ella record (or any good jazz record for that matter). What were they thinking? I will assume it was already scratched somewhere – just to keep my sanity.

  20. It was Lady Day!

  21. Fird Birfle says:

    *sigh of angst*

  22. Billie??!! Noooooooo!

    Okay I’m going with the record was already scratched.

  23. I’m with you guys! Billie??!! NOOOOOOO!!! Why not Men Without Hats? or Corey Hart? or Scorpions? or something!

    It MUST’ve been scratched already…

  24. Ha. This little customer from last week is aghast!

  25. Fird Birfle says:

    A Most Astute Point, Nikki!!!!

    Fave CO Vocab Mot du Jour: “aghast” 8-O

  26. AMEN Andi ! Let’s put the cover down over that record shall we !

  27. Melissa says:

    Ok folks, let’s not be sexist, here. That DJ is a little lady cat! You go, girl!

  28. ashagato says:

    calicos are always girls, nomtom! ;)

  29. victoreia says:

    Actually, there have been male calicos, but statistically it’s something like 99% are female. (Note: I’m pulling that number out of the air; it could be lower…)

  30. ashagato says:

    yea, i know. somehow it just didn’t sound right to say “almost”!

  31. ashagato says:

    btw as i’m writing this my big fat calico just came to sit on the keyboard…

  32. PLAY SOME “STRAY CAT STRUT” !!!!!!!!! MEOW!!!!!!!!!!

  33. at :39 when she starts eatuhn it?! Adoruhbuuuuuuhls!!! <3

  34. I live with a calico who is also obsessed with records! She’s been here two months and every time I put on an album she’s there. Here she is, if the link work (not sure if people I’m not friends with can see my FB videos?)

  35. Nope.

  36. I figured out how to change the privacy for individual videos… maybe it works now?

  37. Works now. Adorable too, I might add.

  38. The sound of the claws on the side of the turn table…eeeewwwww!

  39. Fird Birfle says:

    *friendly wave*
    Hi, Gigi!!

    –offtopic item here, sorry folks–
    Gigi — if you receive slightly better-than-average cable television at your residence?….on Monday, the channel TCM (Turner Classic) is scheduled to play the film of your name!!! Did your mother choose your name from that film or is it just a coinkidink?

    — we now return to your regularly-scheduled
    adorable calico kitteh “layin’ down tracks” …

  40. Well actually, Gigi is short for my full name Ginette which I always detested, so don’t tel anyone OK? :wink:

  41. Fird Birfle says:

    Don’t worry; NOBODY (except maybe Meg)
    reads the comments on CO.

  42. victoreia says:

    *snerk* Nope, I’m not readin’ ’em! :D

  43. The part where she tries to bite it is the best!

  44. cyberpunkrocker says:

    Curious cat is curious.

  45. Fird Birfle says:

    Calico cat is calico :)

    (und verreh pretty, too…)

  46. I was down at the club hanging with my boys
    When the DJ started spinning and we made some noise.
    Well that cat was as cool as a block of ice;
    He wore fur head to toe and was paid in mice.
    He started slow with a few little scratches,
    But his moves were catnip to all the biatches
    He played that music like a motherless child,
    And when he bit the record, the club went wild.
    The dogs were outside, barking to get in,
    And we couldn’t hear the sirens over all that din.
    With the music was so hot that the club was in flames,
    The fire department said that the DJ was to blame.
    All that’s left of the club is a pile of junk
    And the memory of a DJ with a soul of funk.
    Yeah that cat was as cool as a block of ice
    The fur-wearing DJ who was paid in mice.

  47. Gah! Edit: With the music so hot that the club was in flames . . .

  48. socalsis says:

    LOVE it! Great tribute, sounds like a hot time in the old town alright!

  49. Thanks :)

  50. bob drummond says:

    The beat was so hot it was cool ,DADDIO ,!!!
    DIG IT , BAYBEE !!

  51. bookmonstercats says:

    I never thought I’d say it of rap, but…..

    “We are not worthy”

  52. Hahaha! Thank you.

  53. ashagato says:

    love it!!!!

  54. jessy729 says:

    Thanks :)

  55. Okay. I hate to nuff here, but…

    THAT POOR VINYL! Why didn’t he do anything!? He just sat there, filming it, while that vinyl was scratched! And the needle was torn to pieces! AND YOU GUYS JUST POSTED IT, AS IF NOTHING MATTERED!

    I can’t believe you guys. So disappointed right now.

  56. victoreia says:

    *snerk* “Vinyl abuse” BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!1!!!!!1!!

  57. victoreia says:

    Hey, do they serve raspberry mojitos in the Mod Lounge? Or is it too early in the morning?

  58. You know what they say: it’s five o’ clock somewhere.

  59. Painful to watch. Pretty kitteh though.

  60. Theresa says:

    Adorable black blob on the nose. <3 Calicos!

  61. Theresa says:

    Does she remind anyone else of this other perplexed little calico cutie?

  62. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    Bwaaahahahaha!!! I love the end of the video!

  63. Office administrator kitteh is tired of telling the boss those old printers keep acting up.

  64. Solution: KILL THE PRINTER.

  65. Fird Birfle says:


  66. bob drummond says:


  67. earlybird1 says:

    That is HILARIOUS!! Especially the very end, LOL!

  68. Mamabear says:

    YES!! YES!!

    I love how she’s not patting the printer, she’s ‘female dog’ slapping the ‘excrement’ out of it. She means for it to DIE!

  69. As all this video evidence shows, calicats are the mostest curious. My recently lost dilute calico, Felix Felicis, was easily the most gifted in that regard of any cat I’d ever known.

  70. Theresa says:

    Also, their markings make them look like little clowns, which makes them funnier.

  71. Doesn’t the sound that this beautiful calico’s clawz make remind you of a blade sharpener? :)

  72. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    Screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeech!!! That noise her claws make on the turntable is just DISTURBING. Like fingernails on a chalkboard. Like forks and knives scratching a dinner plate. Like a broken violin.

  73. Like anything sung by Tiny Tim. Or Scott Stapp.

  74. Also reminded of this:

  75. That was just hysterical; it must have been wild filming this…! :shock:

  76. Theresa says:

    I just want to note that the vocals here are provided by none other than Bootsy Collins, which is awesome enough.

  77. :lol: AWW :lol: I wonder how long it took for them to do that and how many kittens did they use to make that video :lol: I would of picked up the little homeless kitten and started giving him/her a bottle of warm kitten milk :lol:

  78. kodalai says:

    This is exactly why our old turntable had a cover to put down over it — to prevent curious kittehs.

  79. Hehehe, made me smile, but at the same time made me *cringe* every time that needle scratched across the record!

  80. I cringed: every time that cat’s paws got near the edge of the turntable. I was worried the kitty would get her paws hurt.

  81. Hey Mr. DJ, put a record on, I want to dance with my baby …

  82. The cat is trying to play it backwards to find what really happened to Morris the cat.

  83. ratchic says:

    I watched while cheering the cat on…I don’t favor that music, however the screeching claws were incentive to turn down the volume so I wasn’t disturbed by it while watching the curious cat. It’s none of my business if the awesome calico who is very much loved has an owner who doesn’t love their record player.

  84. That’s a Mrs. Katt. Only females are turtoise. Great DJ, though.
