Kitteh is sad. Probably over something you did.

How could you?

Kittens – Day 2 is by Tim Ebbs.


  1. Worried kitty is worried — and cute!

  2. Yes, I will

  3. Stripes, seriously, stripes? How silly do you want me to look? All the other kitties in the neighborhood will tease me mercilessly. Sigh.

  4. OH poor baby, I’ll make it all better *running to open can of fresh Albacore tuna* and grab some fresh catnip and a cashmere blankie for you to snuggle in!!!! Is there anything else you wish master???

  5. I love kittens so much…if I saw one looking this sad, I’d grab it and hug it and cuddle and kiss it and pet it mercilessly. Luckily kittens seem to enjoy affection more than their adult versions.

    I’d be like the Abominable Snowman with his Bunny, George.

  6. O.M.G. I’ve completely melted. The power of this teeny worried face. I’m actually sitting here feeling like I need to apologize profusely for hurting this sweetie’s feelings. I’m SO SORRY!!! I’ll never do it again, I promise.

  7. Like Nikki, I too am very, very sorry little cutie. What can I do to make it up to you?

  8. But….but…..*sniff* I have to go to work! To buy you kitty food! :cry:

  9. baby birdie says:

    That’s how they get people to serve them. With cuteness.

  10. baby birdie says:

    Wait, I just noticed the URL says “you will melt nao”.

  11. This kitten could give Jewish mothers lessons in guilt.

  12. (And yes, I get that look every day…..times two!)

  13. Andi from NC says:

    Wait… what was that sound… oh, it was heart breaking into a bajillion pieces….

  14. I used to say that to my kitty every day when he would walk me to the door and yell because I was leaving!

  15. I’M SORRY!

  16. No, please, let me sleep in the little bed. You can have the king size one, you adorable mess of fluff.

  17. Oh mai ~ those eyes are virtually dripping guilt trip !!

    I kow-tow(sp?) before you begging forgiveness for whatever horrible thing I may have done either perceived or for reals, little floofy McStripersons!

  18. Oh…and gentle beep of triangular nose!

  19. I go straight for the little fat toesies.

  20. Mary (the first) says:

    Even his/her whiskers are all droopy. Poor little thing!

  21. I guess this is what you look like when you miss out on the Missoni stuff at Target

  22. northchannel says:

    I may have missed an announcement, I do not know.
    Is there a problem with hovertext, or just not being done, or………?

  23. I’m sorry! I’m so sorry for what I did!!

  24. JohnnieCanuck says:

    I recommend checking out Tim’s flickr account. The kit is called Chilli and has a sibling(?) called Pepper.

    It would seem Chilli always has that expression. This one is quite good:

    Chilli's new headshot

  25. This looks like the response to the “I Made You a Cookie” cat:

  26. bookmonstercats says:

    But….. but…. THAT isn’t my mousie…..


  27. Maybe he is sad because his toy mouse broke.

  28. A million apologies for what I did. Or didn’t do. Just stop looking so sad, little floofster.

  29. I’ve taught one of the kids I work with to make his eyes just like this kitty’s and walk around going “but… but… but… but… but…. but…. PWEEEEEEEEEEESE?”

    I’m sure his parents adore me for teaching him that.

  30. “No, it’s not. I’m sorry to say that your mousie has gone to join the other mousies who have formed a colony with the dust bunnies who live under the fridge.”

  31. I guess he wasn’t able to right click the mouse to submit the order.

  32. I promise to never look at cute overload again! The cat’s there can never be as cute and precious as you my love!

  33. He looks like he just swallowed his gum by accident.

  34. I’m sorry kitty. Next time I will use less garlic when I saute your shrimp. I promise.

  35. I’m sorry I told you that you were adopted.

    But that just means I *chose* you!

  36. I’m sorry I gave you that hideous mouse toy. I’ll buy another right away.

  37. Sorry kitteh. You weren’t supposed to see that.

  38. OMG.

  39. Somebody must have shown it pictures of abused animals.

  40. I don’t know what I did, but I feel horrible about it!

  41. YEs but then there is the POUNCE!

    Kittens - Day 2

  42. I am sorry Kitteh that I did not
    Fluff your bed,
    Buy you the most expensivbe kitty food
    shower you with adoration 24/7
    or get you the newest giantest most enticing feather stick

    I will try harder.

  43. I promise hon, I will be right back. Really! I’m just going to the bathroom and as much as I love you, I really don’t need you to come with me. Stop giving me that face. And sitting outside the door reaching your paw under the door will gain you nothing. I mean it, quit with the face. Okay, fine. You win. I am powerless against those eyes. *sigh*

  44. I’m terribly ashamed of myself!

  45. Mine’s serious: this kitty is sad because I just had to bring my own kitty, Frizzle, on that long, one-way trip to the vet. He was fifteen years old, and very ill. We made the best decision for him, but I will miss him terribly all the same. :(

  46. Puss in Boots !!

  47. Hugs to Q-chan for her loss of Frizzle…so sorry to hear and I know how hard it is to lose your furbaby!

  48. Thanks for the link! These kittens are just adorable, and they’re both good at the guilt-inducing expressions. I’m pretty sure they practice in front of the mirror.

  49. Q_chan, I’m so sorry. You DID make the best decision for Frizzle, after giving him/her a fantastic kitty-name. Hugs to you and your family. I’ve been there, and it’s never fun. The CO crowd always chimes in with sympathy.

  50. Sitting in mod lounge feeling very lonely…looking around for snacks or orange juice, perhaps….

  51. Was trying to send condolences to Q-chan…

  52. Oh, oh God! I’m sorry! I’m sorry I thought about stealing that gum when I was nine! I’m sorry I looked at my neighbor’s test paper! I’m sorry I put that customer on mute and muttered “first world problems!” as he went on and on about how his salad wasn’t full enough! I’m sorry! I’m sorry!

  53. Fird Birfle says:


  54. Here’s a nice tall fresh squeezed O.J., Flutterby, and some snickerdoodles….

  55. That’s such a terrible experience, Q_chan. Many of us here have had to do the same and we understand how it feels. Hope it comforts you to know that….

  56. bookmonstercats says:

    … and the bed….

    ….and the settee……

    …..and the piano…


  57. bookmonstercats says:

    It’s a very sad time, Q_Chan, but Frizzle is in kitteh heaven, where the cushions are permanently plumped and there is always a sunbeam to sleep in.

  58. My bad, Chilli darling! I promise I’ll never try to substitute sardines for your tuna again. Here, let me adjust the mirror for you and Pepper….

  59. Oh, Q_chan, I am so sorry for your loss. You will miss Frizzle always, but know that you gave him an awesome and loving life with you for quite a long time, and that you did the best that you could so he would not suffer.

  60. It wasn’t my fault! I di’unt do it! HE did it, not me. Who, you say? WHO? HIM, that’s who!

  61. *giggle*

    Why, oh why, do they have to “watch?”

  62. *sigh* I deserve that look.

    I volunteered this morning at my company’s charity event to raise money for Grey Muzzle (an organization that finds homes for senior dogs). I did facepainting for the kids, and had a great time. And then went off and left my nearly brand-new cell phone, apparently. I tried calling it and no one answered, which I hope means that the receptionist, who sat at the same table with me all morning, saw that I left it and has locked it safely away in her office until Monday morning.

  63. Hugging my senior girl (17) right now. I’m so sorry for your loss, Q_chan. We’ve all been there.

  64. I’m sorry I waited until today to buy the new CO calendar, kitty! Please to stop with the looking at me like that…

  65. Hey, we have to save the dust bunnies! They’re endangered!

  66. *giggle* “First world problems” indeed!

  67. mea maxima culpa…

  68. I am so sorry Q_chan. It’s a horrible decision to have to make, but one day when you cross the Rainbow Bridge Frizzle will be there to greet you. You did everything you could and your kitteh knows he was loved.

  69. Q_chan, I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope that all the lovely memories you made together will sustain you in the days to come. I know you will always carry him in your heart.

  70. Noooo, I didn’t mean it! I’m sowwy!

  71. trust me, they’re not even close to endangered at my house

  72. Love is when you care more about your loved one’s pain than your own. You showed that in the most difficult way possible. Frizzle is truly loved.

  73. bob drummond says:

    Or they might hate your guts for teaching him to do that. It can work both ways you know !!!

  74. okok here goes another camera sigh. 1,2,3…look sad NAO.

  75. Fird Birfle says:

    I feel right at home here :)

  76. Hovertext says “So what did you do??? Tell us in the comments!”

  77. The treadmill, the bookshelf, and that old grandfather who hasn’t left the sofa in front of the television in 15 years.

  78. ramona austerman says:

    mousie dead, no workie!!!

  79. :cry: AWW :cry: I am so sorry to hear that about your dear sweet kitty, Fizzle, Q_Chan :cry: (BIG CYBER HUG)

  80. Same here :D I would give that kitty lots and lots of cuddling :D

  81. Don’t forget the soft pillow for the kitty to lay on :D

  82. Wow, thanks everyone! I just thought id come on and say hello from Chilli as shes really been enjoying all the attention. The only problem is that it made Pepper a little sad so i put up some recent pics of her as well as a special one of them both.

    Im off now to cook some salmon and prepare Chilli some cream, must run!

  83. Terry Jones kitteh is worried…

    I’m so worried about what’s happening today, in the Middle East ya know
    And I’m so worried about the baggage retrieval system they’ve got at Heathrow…

  84. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    I poked a badger with a spoon.

  85. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    Snaps for the way-obscure Python reference.

  86. Thanks, everyone. Sorry I’m late to comment (been a bit preoccupied lately) but I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate all your kind words. They’re helping me through the grieving process.

    And thanks for toughing out the mod lounge for me, Flutterby. :)

  87. Empressgoth says:

    Okay.. Kitty who done it? I will Slap them silly for you!

  88. Lewis n' Clark says:

    yay – it’s the return of Argyle Donkeypants!

  89. “I’m sorry”
    But you can say baby,
    baby can I hold you tonight…
