THIS JUST IN: A Kitteh in a Onesie

The redonkulousness continues, People.

Sender-Inner Mary K. has way too much time on her hands—witness:



  1. It’s amazing that Mary K. still have enough intact limbs to take the picture once she put the kitteh in the onesie. Perhaps the kitteh (or Mary) had a little catnip before this adventure began.

  2. kibblenibble says:


  3. That should be “has”–perhaps I have been inadvertantly indulging in the nip as well.

  4. Kitteh’s eyes say “help……..”

  5. Oh. My. Gawd. That is the most adorable little creature! Such a face.

  6. Does kitty like that?

  7. You know there’s a hole for the tail in that. You know there is.

  8. Catsquatch says:

    Ok, THAT kitty is WAY too patient….

    What kind of valium was used for that anyway?


  9. The leg bloomers!

  10. OMG what a face!

  11. Adorable! ….I’m still smiling

  12. victoreia says:

    See, I’d never have the nerve to even consider attempting something like this; I’d be bleeding before completing the thought!

  13. 😆 AWW, Mary K. 😆 What a thing to do to a sweet little kitty like that 😆 That kitty is probably used to Mary K. dressing him/her up like that 😆

  14. Oh. My. Goddess. *thud dies*

  15. Crewel.

  16. Cat is so patient and I wonder if its thinking “the things I do for Tuna”

  17. Kitty’s producer: “I promise, you’ll be the next Maru, the onsie, it will be YOUR “thing” – boxhab is so last year. Now just hold your paws up dear – there! that’s the money shot!”

  18. You mean Kittywood Studios’ newest creation?

  19. {head explodes} cleanup on aisle three!

  20. cubbybutt says:

    Holy You-know-what!

  21. Someone’s going to wake up with cat sick on their pillow…

  22. Fird Birfle says:

    well-stated, v 🙂

  23. Fird Birfle says:

    Advantages (to the kitteh) of the onesie: No need to employ the Privacy Tailio 🙂

  24. Moi, Actually says:

    A cream-filled cat canneloni.

  25. I think more cats wear onesies than is commonly thought, especially in their off hours. I submit into evidence:

  26. Just spit my smoothie all over my kybard.

  27. I have a smoosh-faced kitty, too, and the things he allows me to do to him are remarkable. Perhaps it’s a coincidence, or maybe the smoosh-face breed are really laid back. The only time he scratched me was when I gave him a raspberry on his belly and he got scared and tried to use my face for traction to run away. That was embarrassing to explain to my co-workers the next day.

  28. Reminds me of my very first cat, April. My Chatty Cathy dress fit perfectly on her, much to my delight and her dismay.

  29. swampdiamonds says:

    Enormous fluffy head + tiny kitty body with smooshed down fur = AMAZING.

  30. bob drummond says:

    Whattaya mean crewel ? What about that poor pooch who was forced to wear that weird looking outfit from the Snears&Doebutts Catalogue?

  31. bob drummond says:

    Right On ,Baybee!!!

  32. EEEEH!
    Now I’m finding it hard to wipe that smile off my face 😀

    he looks so lost in desperation, kind of like when you bathe them, but soo cute at the same time

  33. bob drummond says:

    I sympathize with you Jen , really !

  34. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    I suspect that sender-inner Mary K. has scratches on her hands as well as time. 😉

  35. O…M…G!!! I ***LOVED*** my Chatty Cathy doll. omg…

  36. I was wondering about the tail, too…

    When I was 8 or 9 I used to dress my cat up in doll’s clothes (and a bonnet) and put her in my toy pram. I don’t have any photos (she didn’t stay still for long enough) but I remember the look on her face, poor thing!

  37. Oh, yes. 🙂

  38. I had to do something similar to one of my cats last year when he had a sore on his side he wouldn’t stop licking. He slunk around the house for a day and a half acting like that piece of cotton weighed fifty pounds before I couldn’t stand it any more and took it off. 🙂

  39. Desdemona says:

    Me too — I had an old, battle-scarred tom cat who used to patiently submit to my dress-up games. He looked pretty rediculous with his partial ear and one-eye, dressed up in a lace baby bonnet and stuck in a dolly stroller. He looked pathetic, but he never scratched me. My mom would come and rescue him on a regular basis! (Note: This was in the Fifties, back before people got the message about neutering, so please, no comments about that!)

  40. People, STOP dressing your pets! Or any animal for that matter! It’s creepy! Love and respect all animals but don’t treat them like humans! I just don’t get this! Never will.

    Case in point, the Chimpanzee who mauled a family friend in 2009. I read about the owner taking a bath with the chimpanzee – saying “it’s not until you had a bath with a chimpanzee that you know a chimpanzee”… What on earth?! That’s sick and not benefitting anyone!

  41. Could pose problems at litter box time.

  42. This is adorably cute. Fits just perfectly. As a child, I dressed my patient dog up in doll clothes. Re tail: goes down the leg opening.

  43. Sooooo cute. But does no one but me see the death rays coming out of kitty’s eyes?

  44. kitteh would not be laying like that, with its tummeh exposed, unless it was comfortable and trusting…

    i certainly cannot envision such an action by any of my kittehs, but it sure is cute!

  45. Alexandra says:

    Haaa, practical to avoid some hair on the couch or yourself. :-p Or when missis has her “period” moment. 😀

    Lol, cute cat being either patient or will-less. x-D (still remember that video of a black/white kitty letting itself being run over by a remote controlled toy car, even flatting itself to make the run over easier ;-D )

  46. The bath with the chimp thing doesn’t really work well as an analogy to putting your cat in a onesie. Maybe putting a cheetah in a onesie.
    Also, it’s kind of irritating that because you “don’t get it” that other people must stop doing it. Yeah, some people get a bit weird with the outfits, but stuff like this is just supposed to be funny.

  47. Yeah, whatever. I’m totally trying this with my cats tonight.

  48. Obviously you were loved by that old tom. Otherwise he’d have torn you, those clothes and that stroller into shredded wheat while escaping out the (closed) window.

  49. kitty looks happy!

    also, persians and himalayans are generally more docile. i can’t even put a collar on my kitties.

  50. exactly! 🙂

  51. Does anyone remember Betsy Wetsy?

  52. I agree that its usually silly to dress up your pets, but you shouldn’t say that people should never do it.
    My parents shih tzu -LOVES- the snow, but the snow makes big lumps in her fur, making it painful for her after a while (she’s not too patient when it comes to removing them either). So they got her a jacket. She loves it.
    And naked cats? Winters over here last for 5-7 months. I can totally understand people giving them a warm cat-sweater.

  53. Why on earth is that “creepy”? I will dress my dogs in shirts when it is cold or put a bandanna on them because it amuses me. I also like to catch squirells and put little dresses on them, lol.

    It doesn’t hurt them or bother them in the slightest. I’ll tell you what’s “creepy”: Non-cowboys wearing cowboy hats and/or boots, non-baseball players wearing baseball caps, non-firefighters wearing FDNY shirts, non-military or non-hunter wearing camoflage…nah, just kidding, but you see where I’m headed.

    That said, I’m gonna bet that this kitteh might have sutures in his/her torso that he/she has been chewing upon. Clothing would be a much kinder option than an Elizabethon collar. Besides, it’s cute as can be and he/she does not appear to be in any distress.

  54. earlybird1 says:

    Not to mention the HUGE anime eyes, the bobblehead floof, and the pantaloons puffing out of the leg holes there. WIN!

  55. earlybird1 says:

    I can’t help wondering… where is the tailio allowed to breathe in this getup? 🙂

  56. That cat has been effectively paralysed! for some reason, kitties just seize up and crawl around if you put something around them (a footless sock… or a onesie).

    I bet it was good fun watching this fellow try to walk o_O

    I will say that it’s an amusing photo — but also just a tiny bit disturbing.

  57. I’m afraid I am going to have nightmares tonight about the snippet from :09-:14. 😛

  58. SlaveToCat says:

    I still have a Mrs. Beasley packed away someplace.

  59. Emmberrann says:

    A remembrance of the Late & Much Beloved Mr. Picky, who was clothes and collar phobic to a fare-thee-well. I tried, children, I tried — once. Once was enough for me!

  60. Queen of Dork says:

    Yeah. Me too, Victoriea. My cat Fat Albert would shred me if I tried to do that. 🙂

  61. Queen of Dork says:

    When we were little girls, I had Raggedy Ann and my sister had Raggedy Andy. I would be Raggedy Stef if I attempted to dress my cat in a onsie.

  62. “I also like to catch squirells and put little dresses on them, lol.” ← THAT is creepy!!

  63. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh! And speaking of toys, did anybody else out there have that weird game called Operation? It had a picture of this guy on the game board and you were supposed to take these little tweezer things and “operate” on him and remove bones and parts with out touching the sides of the thing with the tweezers so you wouldn’t get the “bzzzzzzzzzz!” sound! That was such a fun game. 🙂

  64. Awwww, what a sweet wittle kitty with her puffy pants.

    You can tell she’s thinking, “What is WRONG with you?” My hamster used to give me the same looks when people rubbed him against their faces. I want a floofy smushface of my very own!

  65. @Medusa What you explain has not in the least bit the same ‘purpose’ than squeezing a cat into a onesie – please! And you know it.

    I come to this site EVERY DAY to get my cute picture fix. But EVERY DAY I am anxious about seeing another animal being dressed up as a baby, doll, human being……. It’s just so wrong!! It turns my stomach!

    As I’m writing my cat is sleeping on my leg. It’s the sweetest and the cutest and kindest animal that I took off the street 6 years ago – it would not have survived there much longer. My heart melts everytime I come home and my cat is there waiting for me. But it just makes no sense to me to treat my cat as anything else than cat. My mother already accuses me of ‘humanizing’ my cat far too much. I fight with my mother over this every time the topic arises. But I will continue being upset and vocal about it when you make your pet a human. It’s bound to fire back.

  66. That’s just what I was thinking…

  67. “kitty looks happy!” ← No, it doesn’t.

  68. Teresa in KC says:

    I used to have a silver-shaded Persion like this one…

    but she NEVER would have stood for this.

  69. Funny?? It’s not funny. Every other comment here is about how surprising it is that the owner still has all their limbs or has not their face all scratched or whatever else – which shows that you all think too, that this CANNOT have been fun for the cat. It’s funny really only for the person who does that to the poor cat.

    I don’t mind being irritating.

  70. Fird Birfle says:

    @ easol & “puffy pants”….Your phrase reminded me of the single episode of Seinfeld that entertains me (I really don’t find the series anything like “classic” that other people claim….) …the whole “puffy shirt” thing 🙂

  71. Gail White says:

    No human beings were harmed to make this picture.
    Feline dignity was a little damaged, though.

  72. Yes! Good hand/eye coordination game!

  73. That’s what happens when you let your pet join the NRA! 😉

  74. My husband walked in the room, so I showed him this picture. He said, ” My God, that cat has on pants!” We don’t think Miss Sophia (our Himalayan) would allow such a thing, but she would be really cute….but she’s always cute.

  75. kibblenibble says:

    My tiny white Persian, Isabella, would have let me dress her. She was tolerant of combing and face-washing, too. I always thought it was because she came from generations of “fancy” kitties, who are high-maintenance in general. I miss that very special princess. She had beautiful big eyes like this one.

  76. I had a kitten that had a bad reaction to an old style flea collar and was scratching her neck bloody twenty five years or so ago.

    I cut the top of a tube sock into a collar so she wouldn’t cut herself when scratching and it helped a lot!

  77. OMG, A 40 year old earworm!!! aaaaaaaaaaaaghgghgh


  79. Humor appears to be a difficult subject for you.

  80. Cat looks indifferent. Stop projecting your own cat issues onto everyone else.

  81. TrixandSam says:

    To those protesting this photo: as noted by others, there could be a freshly sutured wound on this kitteh’s belly that it won’t leave alone. My parents’ dog was attacked by another dog and sustained significant wounds on both sides. After surgery, the vet told my Mom to put her in a onsie if she (the dog, not my mom) started chewing on the stitches. Though it was cute when we put one on her (again, on the dog, not my mom) it was necessary.

    Point of the story: don’t assume anything about this picture! We don’t know the story behind it.

  82. just because you’re “creeped out” by it doesn’t mean it’s cruel or other people shouldn’t be allowed to interact with their pets how they see fit. there is nothing in this kitty’s posture to suggest hostility, aggression or unhappiness with her situation, so hows about you take a cue from her and chillax?

  83. my doxie likes to wear shirts. our pet sitter one time made her what resembled a snuggie for dogs; it had little hearts on it to celebrate valentines day! really she can wear anything, some dogs just have the figure for it. 😛

  84. in your slizzax with some snizzax?

  85. I haz “Operation”

  86. Fird Birfle says:

    *leaves for the grocery store, to buy some [standard, cheese *NOT* cat — canneloni*]

  87. Dear Jude,

    A. People here know what they’re doing band take the clothes off the animal as the picture is taken.

    B. Have consideration for other people’s giggles, and take your nuffing somewhere more appropeiate, like the ASPCA or PETA.

  88. O c’mon, the mod lounge?! Pass the club sandwiches, please.

  89. I had a long haired chihuahua that my family rescued. The older she got, the colder she got, especially in winter when there was ice on the ground. She loved her sweaters.

    Snooki and Alley are about the sweetest cats in history. They don’t mind my munchkin putting his socks on them or even his shirt. Itty Bitty has decided his clothes are the best and willingly crawls in them and will drag them off to sleep inside and peer out the armholes/neckhole/leg holes/whatever.

    And Sly? Was severely wounded when he was rescued and brought to the vet clinic where I work. He was a very large cat in a very small cage. A collar was cruel yet he had stitches all in his side, belly, and down his broken leg. We put him in a toddler onesie to keep him from the ones on his belly and side and to help keep them clean when he tried to use the box. He’s such a laidback doll. Never once did he scratch, bite, or even threaten to. And guess what – if he’s having a nervous fit, offer him a shirt or a baby nightgown. He’ll happily wear it, curl up, and snooze in your lap.

    Some cats are just more tolerant by nature. This may be a medical need or might just be a very gentle cat. Like Alley or Snooki. Might have been done by a kid, the adult snapped a cute pic, and took it right off. Beautiful cat with beautiful eyes! Reminds me of my Sissy (though she was a Turkish Angora rescue.)

  90. I also adored Betsy Wetsy!!!
