Revenge of the Son of the Bride of the Most Patient Cat of All Time, Part II: Attack of the Cooinator

(Ya know, if I hadn’t had my killer instincts bred out of me by centuries of domestication, I’d bite this thing’s head off. Anyway, I’m too tired from my afternoon nap, so I’ll let it slide.)

UPDATE: New link to video found (thanks, Julia!)



  1. another super-patient kitty–my brood would snap off Mr. Birdy’s head immediately.

  2. “Zzzz…”

    “wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, hee hee….wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, hee hee… wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up… “

  3. The dove is actually showing signs of interest in a mate… It’s weird that he is doing it to a cat. Dove’s movement in the video is a sign of his desire to have a mate.

  4. skippymom says:

    Doesn’t this need an interspecies something-or-other tag?

  5. ashagato says:

    finally, a cat getting a taste of its own medicine! 😉

  6. Theresa says:

    Yeah, I get the mating moves, but the fact that he’s yelling right in the cat’s ear is extra-hilarious.

  7. I bet all the boids friends double-dog-dared him to do this to the cat….


  9. Theresa says:

    Also that when ONE ear doesn’t seem to work, he tries the other. 😆

  10. Theresa says:

    Sure, I’ve known guys like that.

  11. Theresa says:

    Erm, yes, something-or-other, mmm, indeed. 🙄

    that was supposed to go under Trinky Dink’s song

  15. 260Oakley says:

    Cat wants nothing to do with the dove because it has cooties. Dove cooties.

  16. Theresa says:


  17. Maureen says:

    That cat is just toooooo nice – I was ready to whack that bird!!!

  18. heheheheh! 😀

  19. Ha ha! That’s exactly what I thought. This is what my cat, Molly, does to me in the morning.

  20. mplsredd says:

    Dove: kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty…..

    Kitty: what!

    Dove: Hi.

  21. Inked Eskimo says:

    The best bit is the manic “hehehehehe” giggle it makes after a stream of annoying coo’s! Seriously, I had to replay it to make sure it wasn’t a child laughing!

  22. That dove has big brass ones.

  23. Shut up? Why certainly! You don’t think I’m the type that would keep on blabbin’? Some people never know when to stop. When I’m told to shut up, I shut up…

  24. Its kind of cheating.. the cat is wearing soft paws.. caps that go over its claws..

  25. According to the artist Prince, “This is what it sounds like when the dove cries.”

  26. Katrina says:

    I’m a morning person so I seldom if ever hear an alarm clock. This is a verrrrry prrrretty (Scottish brogue ) noise for an alarm clock. I love the look on the face of the cat. He and da boid must be buddies (budgies?) from when they were both tiny. Thank you, CO! COOOOOO!

  27. mrtsmom says:

    Having owned a dove for 19 years (my brother brought her home when I was 10) I can tell you that this dove is (a) in heat, and (b) totally in love with the cat. It may even have imprinted on the cat when it was a baby. This is exactly what my dove did to me. She was like a little noise machine. That pecked. But, as my parents always reminded me, very sweet, and loved me very much.

  28. onionpencil says:

    i found a dovester in the yard, he does this to me, but luckily not in my ear when i’m trying to nap. he’s a sweet boy tho 8D

  29. Cirocco J says:

    I think kitten kind of likes the birdie too. Otherwise that bird a-done got ET.

  30. skippymom says:

    Hi, Katrina! How are you?

  31. skippymom says:

    Birds go into heat, like mammals do? Never heard of that before.

    Chaaaaaaaarlieeeeeeeeeeee! Chaaaaaaaaaaaaarlieeeeeeeee!


    We’re on a bridge!

  35. Emmberrann says:

    Oooooohhh, if’n I was dat cat, dat boid wudda been Toast! Boid toast!

  36. PugNuggler says:

    Candy Mountain, Charlie!

  37. PugNuggler says:

    I definitely snerked out loud at that. My office mates gave me strange looks…

    Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum! Mum!




    Look, a plane!

  39. Dove: I taut I saw a puddytat! Lemme check Hey are you a puddytat? Are you a puddytat? Are you a puddytat? Are you a puddytat? Are you a puddytat? Are you a puddytat? (etc.)

    Cat: YES, I’m a mean ferocious pussytwat with giat fearsome claws! NOW GO AWAY!


  40. onionpencil says:

    honestly, i don’t think it’s quite the same. at least some birds do get all hormonal when the days get longer though. but my dove coos whenever and wherever – longer days may encourage him, but he cooed all winter too.

  41. It actually sounds like the dove is laughing a couple of times!

  42. It totally looks to me like the bird is doing the “I’m not worthy!” bow in a mocking way, then giggling about it.

  43. I did that to my boyfriend a whole afternoon, repeating his name in unicorn voice!
    we are still together and I plan to buy him a Charlie the Unicorn mug…..

  44. Don’t say you want me
    Don’t say you need me
    Don’t say you love me
    It’s understood
    Don’t say you’re happy
    Out there without me
    I know you can’t be
    ‘Cause it’s no good

    (-#1 Stalker Song!)

  45. This is the music playing in that cat’s head, just change wabbit for dovee.

  46. Hola, Mamasita!!!

  47. that poor cat has head pigeons !

    [Zim ref.]

  48. Catsquatch says:

    The worlds DUMBEST dove needs a girlfriend BAD.

  49. Fird Birfle says:

    are ya ready to go to the park NOW?….No? How ’bout now?? or now??

  50. Fird Birfle says:

    YAh BUT didjew notice, what they did with one of the Tags, skippymom???
    “I’m *NOT* going to eat you” 🙂

    heh heh

  51. Fird Birfle says:


  52. This dove has zero survival instinct. What a sweet/lazy cat though, for not taking advantage of it.

  53. Fird Birfle says:

    Is there a “whack-a-dove” game at the local fair???

    Don’t actually answer that . Jist a lame punchline.
    YES I do know that whacking a mole OR a dove is emphatically A Bad Thing.

  54. Fird Birfle says:

    I second your assessment(sp), Theresa!!!

  56. Sammy2121 says:

    Kat: finally some sleep…….
    Dove:HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI teee heee teeee heeee HI HI HI HI HI HI
    Kat: I hate you, d**m bird, why do you live here again?
    Dove:HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI teee heee teeee heeee HI HI HI HI HI HI
    Kat: I’ll bite your head off. I really will…. don’t push my buttons
    Dove: HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI teee heee teeee heeee HI HI HI HI HI HI
    Kat: *backslaps dove* get out of here you pshyco!!!

  57. Sammy2121 says:

    Thats so awesome!!!! that would be a great present!

  58. Sammy2121 says:

    Its a neopluradon charlie!!! it has spoken!

  59. Sammy2121 says:

    Love Prince and love that song!! and it should more be like when doves laugh viciously into a cats ear….

    ….unsure about the path by which Mike rec’d
    reference to this link BUT hooray for all involved!!

    Hooray (also?) for tblue (commenter) who mentioned it (on July 4th)
    AND loaded its link under the comments section, within the post of
    the grey siamese kitteh attacking the Star Wars Legos.

    See that segment; several people gave some background facts about doves being quite “talkative” or otherwise verbal.

  61. And doves are symbols of peace…

    Anyone wondering about doves being quite “talkative” or otherwise verbal, you might find some useful info there; several people contributed toward that answer…

  63. One of my (many) favorite Bugs moments!

  64. Fird Birfle says:

    OOPS *BLUSH* I HATE THESE cottonpickingoldarngoodfernutthhin Cro Magnon Era computers in this room. I thought the comment I had written, had *NOT* successfully posted, earlier …. GAH.

    If a moderator was willin’ to excise one or the other item of this comment I’d really be appreciative; I hate for peeps to think that the last shreds of brains inside my skull, were ENTIRELY gone already ….

  65. Aww, wouldn’t little dove-kittens be adorable? 😀

  66. Talk about a live alarm clock , the poor cat is trying to sleep and the bird is not giving up to wake the cat I should have something like this to wake me up

  67. mavethrave says:

    You know…that behavior is part of the dove’s mating ritual. Strange.

  68. (Wondering if anyone who repeatedly comes to this site has complete brains inside skull) (including self, of course)

  69. Journal of Bird Psychology, July 6, 2011.

    New article: “An Examination of Suicidal Ideation and Behavior in Doves”.

  70. Leilani says:

    Inked Eskimo – me, too! I replayed it just to make sure.

  71. or you could cut back on the caffeine for a day or two!

    Dang, the video was taken down. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

  74. Fird Birfle says:

    Where do I send my donations for the establishment of this facility?
    And, in which denominations would you prefer the bills??

    (heh heh “bills” is ALMOST the same as “beaks” ….)

  75. Fird Birfle says:

    jiminy, THAT feels harsh.
    Even if it is/ were a joke, which I’m not sure?

    “mmmmmmmmmmKAY then”.

  76. Fird Birfle says:

    sharpy, have a wonderful life.

    I’m out.

  77. You can still see it on YouTube … so this Charles character has a problem with C.O. creating more traffic for the video? WhatEVER.

    I’d love to see the whole menagerie you can hear in the background. I think that is a LONG-suffering kitty.

  78. Theresa says:

    I would say among the myriad formative influences on me, the most important is probably Looney Toons.

  79. Julia (the one in BC) says:

    Ah yes, but it can still be viewed on YouTube over heeeere

  80. cristina says:

    I totally thought of this when I saw it first

  81. Saw it the other day, brilliant stuff – but obviously somebody stole this and copyright has been claimed by the original owner and we can´t see the vid anymore now…. Julia, thanks for the alternative link! 🙂

  82. Thank you 😀 It was well worth watching and I was late to the party!

  83. Yes, thanks for the alternate link! The “horse mating” previews for “videos up next” were a bit of an eyeful, though, LOL! Nothing I can’t handle, mind you.

    And YAY, I heard my mother tongue — québécois French — the the background of that dove video! Woot!

  84. Copyright claim huh. ;(

  85. SlaveToCat says:

    Sorry cute and kitties can not be copyrighted.

    Shame on you greedy copywronger person.

  86. LynneSkysong says:

    Cannot view due to Copyright complaint. ??? On this???

  87. Mamabear says:


    Thank you for giving this awesomeness its own post; it was so deserving!

  88. Shannon says:

    I am SO happy I was right about that looking like mating behavior. Weird bird. And that sounds like a full house. I *may* have heard a dog or a bird sounding like a dog, other birds, that bird and at least one cat. I wonder how anyone sleeps in there, lol.

  89. That is one seriously confused dove. He’s wooing the cat. YEAH.

  90. why does that sound so much dirtier than slang?

  91. HAW!

  92. that’s nice but what in tarnation does “onionpencil” mean?

  93. should i know what a unicorn voice sounds like? do i want to? what does it sound like?

  94. Cute but a word of caution. One bite or scratch from the cat, and the bird is in serious trouble. I forget what it is, but a cat has something in it’s salva that can make a bird seriously ill. You want to wash the bird with plain water as soon as you can and get it to the vet.

  95. sheesh! i was just joshin’! we’re all here for entertainment, not therapy!

  96. it happens 😦

  97. it wasn’t meant to be harsh, i promise!

  98. onionpencil says:

    scallion, green/spring onion, bunching onion… you get the idea heheeh

  99. yeah and the cat also has a bunch of other things that could put the bird in peril. the vet bill would be nonexistent.

  100. kodalai says:

    “Heeeeey, Chaaaaaarlie!”

  101. This is the result of castration.

  102. curious says:

    Isn’t that a baby at the table laughing and not the dove making the “hee hee heeh”?

  103. Ekajati says:

    OMG death wish dove vexes Zen Cat and Zen Cat wins! … “Awesome”!!!!!!!

  104. Most annoying alarm clock ever.

  105. wait… what?

  106. i can’t wait to see what my husband thinks of my new game.

    (thank you)

  107. cristina says:

    bah, embedding fail 😦

    I meant this

  108. Fird Birfle says:

    oh well that’s a relief then.

    background info: my situation actually *does* include some OCD (nothing immobilizing like the whole “oven/ door handles” things, but def. OCD in some areas paperwork, etc) and I actually don’t even drink even one drop of coffee. So my adrenaline levels / focus are entirely genetic; and perhaps *enhanced* (?) by growing up surrounded by three older brothers in Fast-Forward Mode, themselves ….

    *takes deep breath and reconsiders frayed nerves*

    Thanks for the reassessment, then, Sharpy.
    I appreciate your letting me know.

  109. Bridget says:

    That video really scared me. It’s cute to watch but do the owners realise that one mild scratch from a cat can kill a bird? Let along a tooth mark. Especially if it isn’t spotted. When we rescue birds we get them dosed up with antibiotics immediately, even if there’s no obvious wounds. Even then some of them don’t make it.

  110. baby birdie says:

    Kitteh: Zzzzzz
    Dove: Hey! Hey! Wake up! Hey! Hey cat! Wake up! You’re gonna be late!
    Kitteh: Zzzzzz…I’m trying to sleep here…
    Dove: Hey! Wake up! Hey cat! Hey cat, wake up!
    Kitteh: Go away! I’d kill you if it wasn’t naptime.
    Dove: Hey! Cat! Wake up!
    Kitteh: Just let me sleep…
    Dove: Hey cat! Hey! Hey! Wake up! Hey cat, wake up!
    Kitteh: Go away NOW!

  111. Fleurdamour says:

    That birdbrain is playing chicken with death.

  112. Sounds like the dove is channeling a rooster and a Kookaburra – poor patient kitty! Funny!!!

  113. Amazing !!! The birds have such a hard time if my felines are out of the house !! They are so scard of my tabby. My tabby would ripe that little birdie away. ITS ASTONISHING ! First time, I can see a bird and a cat as friends. Absolutely astonishing !

    The hunter got captured by the game.

  117. victoreia says:

    I didn’t notice the soft paws, but I did wonder how the bird wasn’t getting bloody 😉

  118. victoreia says:


  119. Am I the only one who thought the bird just wanted to get the paper? “He what does that say? Move over I can’t read it. Hey! Can you move over I want to read the paper. Dang! if your going to get mean about it I will come back later.” *birdy eye roll*

  120. onionpencil says:

    my dove makes the same heeheeheee when very excited

  121. 😆 That is one brave bird to keep bothering that cat 😆
