According to authorities, a mewteorite smashed into a papasan cushion yesterday in the home Mrs. Ira Skookums of Hazlett, New Jersey. “It came out of nowhere!”, she said. The chair was totaled; no one was hurt. NASA is still investigating.

Is Dinah a bit of a space cadet, Sheilla C.?



  1. Kitteh needs to be careful of computer named D.O.G. Just don’t ask it to open the pod bay doors…..

  2. I can hear George Hrab and Phil Plait singing These Are The Ways The World Will End…

  7. Loves!!

  8. Hmm, could be a catsteroid from the Milky Way galaxy.

  9. Hazlet has one T.

  10. Really, I was in a big old funk this morning and seeing this cozy little kitty (that reminds me of my dear childhood calico, Star, RIP) just cheered me right up. Thanks, C.O.!

  11. What is it with New Jersey and meteors? At least this one is a lot nicer that the one that fell just outside of Grover’s Mill.

  12. Oups I’m in the mod lounge…pass the muffins and coffee please.

  13. OMG scarlet, I made that name up. But after wondering about your comment (wasn’t sure if you were joking), I checked and there is a Hazlet, NJ!
    Thanks, I’ve learned something new and it’s still early. I can take the rest of the day off.

  14. 🙂 Heeee. Good one!

  15. after i left the comment, I realized it probably sounded a little d-bag ish, and i didn’t mean it that way 🙂 I just live on the shore and was geeked to see something familiar on CO. :p

  16. also if a meteor of any variety were to crash into NJ it is really likely it would crash into Hazlet. it’s one of those towns.

  17. Somehow, I must’ve known that. Ooooweeeoooooo!

  23. Oooooh! The kitteh ‘pit, right above the black fur, is just beggin’ to be scritched!
    Is the CO clinic fully stocked w/bandages & stuff?! 😉

  24. Space cadet? Shouldn’t that be space CATet?

  25. Papasan chair is at the ready, upstairs in the loft where unwanted and unloved furniture goes. If I had a mewteorite smash into my chair, it would become a centerpiece in the family room!

  41. Well, some people do think that kittens are a kind of alien invasion.

  42. “Imagine a giant cockroach, with unlimited strength, a massive inferiority complex, and a real short temper, is tear-assing around Manhattan Island in a brand-new Edgar suit. That sound like fun? ” 😀

  43. Oh noes! I should have said “boy-chicken-roach”!


  44. I used to have a papasan, and it was, indeed, a kitty-magnet. Sadly, when I moved to a smaller apartment, it was decreed (by the roomie) that there was no room for the papasan, so it had to go bye-bye.

    The kitties were HIGHLY upset. Then we got a recliner……

  45. that is exactly why i won’t buy a papasan. I’ll never get to sit in it.

  46. hee hee! Is this an indication of how old you are??? 😉

  47. We’re not telling.

  48. “Welcome… the Twilight Zone.”

  49. is she PG?

  50. I’ve been checking my cushions all day, and nothing this prosh has appeared {pouts}

  52. we had one just like this hit us about 8 years ago, and she never left!
    (in fact she’s sitting on me now)

  53. Wait…..the cat or the meteor?

  54. AWW 😀 I so want to snorgle that kitty 😀
